Presidency Reacts to 2face-Led Planned Nationwide Protest

The presidency has reacted to the February 5th proposed Nationwide protest which 2face Idibia and other celebrities have come out to support.

Speaking in an interview in Lagos, President Buhari's Media Assistant, Femi Adesina, said:

"This is a country of about 180 million people. It is impossible for 180 million people to think the same way. Yoruba has a saying that if you all sleep and put your head in the same direction, then you are all foolish because you would be breathing in one another's mouth and lungs.  Don't forget the last election and how it went. Somebody scored 12.5 million votes, another scored about 15 million votes. There are some people who are still in that election mode. They have not gotten out of it and till today, they are still living and "rheumatisizing" about the past. What they don't know is that that past is gone and gone forever.  Majority of those calling for the protest are still in election mode. Majority of them are peop…

IF I WERE GOD... The State Of Nigerian as a Nation

by Tony Ogunlowo
If I were God and people asked me why I created Nigeria,
I’ll say I created it for a reason. I promised to lead the Israelites to a land of Milk and Honey and I did . Nigeria is a land of Milk and Honey but you’re too blind to see it and trample it under foot.

If I were God and people asked me why I allowed the amalgamation of the Igbos, Yorubas and Hausa under one roof, I’ll say I did it for a reason. People regardless of their tribes and religious affiliations should learn to live together. You are humans not aliens and your country is big enough for everyone.

If I were God and you asked me why I let the killings of the innocents go on,
I’ll tell you it’s for a reason. You do not value the life of your fellow human beings. To you taking a life is like killing a fowl for dinner. Perhaps you should learn to respect the preciousness of a human life.

If I were God and people asked me why I allowed evil to engulf your lives, I will say its for a reason. I created you in my i…
