Nigerian Lawmakers Are Highest Paid worldwide: See Report - The Economist

The jumbo salary being paid Nigerian legislators, which ranked the highest in the world, according to a new study, has attracted sharp criticisms from across the country, including from economists and lawyers.

“This democracy is satanic. We have to review this democracy. The cost of maintaining the lawmakers is outrageous. What they are taking is too much,” said Nigerian professor
This is even as the minimum wage in Nigeria is among the very least in the world. The standard of living for the average Nigerian is getting worse, but all those holding political positions are living large...

A report by The Economist revealed that Nigerian federal legislators with a basic salary of $189,500 (N30.6m) per annum were the highest paid lawmakers in the world.


"As a father, I've never given out my daughters in marriage before university graduation " Atiku Abubakar #ChildNotBride‬

Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has added his voice to the #ChildNotBride campaign:
"As a father, I've never given out my daughters in marriage before university graduation. It's a personal decision. I had earlier stated my personal choices on the child marriage issue; I have always supported our women and children. 
"For the avoidance of doubt, I do not support any constitutional provision which creates ambiguities about the age of consent for marriage. It's therefore very inspiring to see young Nigerians active and organized on ‪#ChildNotBride‬. 
"I'm proud to see an engaged generation at work."

Culled from Punch
The member representing Ondo Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Ayo Akinyelure, wept before members of his constituency in Akure on Monday as he apologised to them that he voted in error to support the senate resolution backing marriage of underage girls.
Akinyelure was summoned by his constituents to explain his role in the controversial passage of a resolution to retain the provision of Section 29 (4) (b) of the 1999 Constitution, which states that a married underage girl is deemed to be an adult.
Politicians, women groups and students had besieged the Adegbemile Hall, venue of the meeting, with placards to protest against what they described as the legalisation of sexual abuse of young girls, which their representative had supported.


Don’t strive to look like celebrities. They have been airbrushed, primped, and plucked to perfection. Unless you have your own makeup team and can Photoshop the real you, it is a look you won’t achieve.

We all need a little boost now and then when it comes to feeling good about ourselves and about our body image. Here are 10 ways to help you boost that image.

1. Look into the mirror and let go of words like fat, ashy, pale and the like. Just look into your own eyes and see your face. You will see once the judgmental words disappear you are able to see yourself more clearly as the beautiful being that you are.

2. Life is too short; don’t beat yourself up over an occasional junk food binge. It is not worth killing your self-esteem with loathing for eating a plate of nachos for the first time in months.

3. Don’t judge yourself by society’s standards or other people’s standards. Love you for you, not for someone else’s acceptance. If you try and live for other people’s views of how you should be you will never be happy.

4. Starving yourself sucks. Remember that the next time you look in the mirror and contemplate it because you feel fat.

5. Love yourself just the way you are. Draw inspiration from different women who come in different shapes, sizes and skin tones and are beautiful and confident.

6. Don’t strive to look like celebrities. They have been airbrushed, primped, and plucked to perfection. Unless you have your own makeup team and can Photoshop the real you, it is a look you won’t achieve.

7. You are not your weight. How much you weigh shouldn’t define who you are.

8. Draw inspiration from the words of Oscar Wilde: “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance”.

9. Don’t base the confidence you have in your body on men. Have you ever heard of a man walking out of a bedroom when a woman strips down for him? Not likely…

-  Remember above all else, confidence is s-exy.

You Can Still Have A Successful Marriage And Relationship If.....

There are few things to remember if you desire to have a successful marriage/relationship:  TO THE WOMEN: Men are expected to show love but, remember that they don’t always read your mind to know your desires. They watch news and read newspapers; they don’t always know your expectations.

If you think that something is very important to you, let your man know. Don’t assume that “he should know” what matters to you, if it truly matters to you, tell him. Confronting a man with the pain of your undeclared and unrealized expectations usually leads most men into a state of confusion, isolation, and frustration.


Is TB Joshua Secretly Working For Jonathan's Ambition?

A source at the Presidency in Abuja said Prophet TB Joshua has so much control over President Goodluck Jonathan right now that whatever he requests is granted without delay because the president believes that the prophet holds the spiritual key to his electoral success in 2015.

FULL STORY: Is TB Joshua Secretly Working For Jonathan's Ambition?

Sources have told Sahara Reporters that last week’s “judicial decision” which set Hamza Al-Mustapha free of murder charges is owed to President Goodluck Jonathan, who was following a “spiritual” fortune-telling that would enable him to win the 2015 election.

Pastor TB Joshua, who has Mr. Jonathan eating out of his hands, has been identified as the person who told the Nigeria leader that his political fortune rests with setting Al-Mustapha free. 

In addition, Mr. Joshua has also told Mr. Jonathan if he is to win in 2015, he needs to bring back to Nigeria James Ibori, the former Delta State governor who is currently serving a 13-year jail term in the United Kingdom.


Nigerian Airforce Invents Bomb Detecting Robot To Fight Boko Haram

Experts in bomb detonation would soon not need to get closer to such dangerous objects to neutralise them as the Nigerian Airforce has invented a robot to undertake such task from a far distance.

Commandant of the Nigerian Airforce Institute of Technology (NAFIT), Kaduna, John Oshoniyi on Monday said the institute had developed a bomb detective robot capable of detecting bombs from afar, and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for surveillance and intelligence gathering in crisis prone parts of the country.
At a news conference in preparation for the 42nd graduation ceremony of the institute, the commandant said the bomb detonating robot, would assist the security agencies to check the series of bombings by terrorist groups.
