Eight reasons why sex in the morning is the best for you

Researchers have come to the conclusion that having sex in the morning has a lot of benefits to a couple, including well being and connection.
Do you actually know that having sex in the morning is one of life’s greatest moment? You might think you are in a hurry to get ready for work and the thoughts of the traffic that awaits you can be a turn off but wait a minute, do you know that getting laid in the morning actually adds a verve to your life and leaves you glowing the whole day.
In the morning haze, when you’re at your most vulnerable and still easing into the day, nothing beats the feeling of having someone next to you wrap his or her arms around you and make you feel wanted.
The benefits extend to more than just being uncharacteristically nice to everyone for the rest of the day and research has shown that couples, who engage in morning sex are healthier and happier people.
Here are 8 reasons that confirms that morning sex is the best sex.

SexVille Tuesday
1. You will actually remember it the whole day
The feeling will stay with you all day and you will actually glow while you think back on the wonderful feelings you had. It is very easy to recap morning sex later.
2. It is a guarantee that you will wake up on the right side of the bed
Sex in the morning gets you, and your day, off to a right and bright start. Researchers from the University of Cincinnati found that morning sex is a natural stress-reliever and these effects can last for at least seven days, meaning your early Monday romp could ease those Sunday Blues.
Morning sex also increases levels of IgG, an antibody that helps to fight against infection.

3. You can skip the gym

Sex burns almost as many calories as a 30-minute jog, so it is actually a good way to exercise without leaving your bed, and it is a better alternative to a morning workout before hopping into the shower.
4. It is great to begin the day with an orgasm
Who wouldn’t want to start the day with an earth shattering orgasm? The feeling is totally out of this world and beats anything you could have for breakfast.
5. Improves your output
Having sex in the morning helps you have an increased productivity at work, research has revealed. In fact, your attitude that day will be very  and your contribution in the office will be noticed.
6. Morning sex is more intimate.
The few minutes we have to ourselves after first opening our eyes are special. Most people, who you’re in regular contact with, have no idea what you look, sound, smell and feel like first thing in the morning. It’s a rare moment to others that’s all to yourself.
Fill that moment in with another person and it becomes a shared secret privy to only you two. That’s what makes morning sex so intimate.
It’s stripped of everything: clothes, makeup, the weight of a day’s events, toothpaste, priorities, and somehow leaves you feeling fuller.

7. It affirms that you two are still interested in each other
Morning sex shows that you are still interested in your partner and the connection is still as fresh as it used to be. It also shows that you still savour the stolen moments you had in your early days.

8. Morning sex leaves you on a high

Morning sex is ending the night on a good note. You are also going to be left on a high that would stay with you all day and you walk with a renewed spring to your steps.

Fayose’s aide resigns over “economic crisis”

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose
The Special Assistant on Parliamentary Matters to Governor Ayodele Fayose, Mr. Samuel Ajibola, has resigned his appointment.
Ajibola, in his letter of resignation, said he quit Fayose’s administration “on basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which he can no longer pretend over.”
In his May 28 letter, Ajibola said, “I humbly write this to formally notify you that I am resigning from my position as your S.A on Parliamentary Affairs.
“Sir, within my personal conviction, I am satisfied that I have in honesty and utmost loyalty served the PDP, the people of Ekiti and government in general.
“Therefore, I premise my resignation on some basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which I cannot continue to pretend over. My resignation takes off immediately.”
Ajibola was the only Peoples Democratic Party member of the House of Assembly before Fayose came to power on October 16, 2014.
He was later joined by six All Progressives Congress lawmakers who defected on the day Fayose was sworn in.
Fayose, has, however, approved the appointment of Mr. Alexander Adeojo to replace Ajibola.
The governor thanked Ajibola for his meaningful contributions to the administration and development of the state while he was Special Assistant, Parliamentary Matters to the Governor

10 ways to predict a 'bad marriage' in Nigeria

Our grandmothers used to say a bad omen on your wedding day could depict a bad marriage to come and these 10 points below may prove our grandmothers have been right all along.

Bride crying on wedding day Bride crying on wedding day

A bride's wedding day is one of the best days of her life but what can possible go woefully wrong to end a her marriage even before it starts?

Our grandmothers used to say "a bad omen on your wedding day could depict a bad marriage to come" and these ten points below could prove that our grandmothers have been right all along.

Rain on a wedding day

1.) Rain

Many people chose to wed during the summer or dry season but when heavy rains decide to fall on your wedding day (even in the heart of that dry season), that's a bad sign. My mom used to say, "this wedding is not supposed to happen".

2.) Groom sees bride in her wedding dress before wedding

This is not allowed to happen. Our elders think it’s a bad sign and brings ill luck to the couple. According to them the groom has to be surprised by the beauty of the bride at the altar not before the wedding ceremony.

This is one sad man  This is one sad man

3.) Groom gets drunk at bachelor's eve

This is definitely a sign of irresponsibility. Elders think the man will be a bad husband and may have just showed his true self before marrying the bride.

4.) Wedding dress malfunction

Heading to your own wedding and your wedding dress rips minutes before your arrival at the church? Damn! It’s a bad sign and some assume it shows the marriage won't last.

Food vendor  Food vendor

5.) Food poisoning

This a wedding day nightmare. Not only did the caterer not show up on time but the food caused your guests to suffer running stomachs or diarrhea? They will tell you, it's sign of hunger, poverty or your wife will be a bad cook.

6.) Photographer doesn't show up

What's a wedding without pictures? If the photographer doesn't show up on your wedding day, it's a complete disaster. Our fathers say it’s a sign of irresponsibility or that marriage is not meant to be. I mean, why won't there be pictures for others to remember your wedding?

7.) Mean exes show up invited

Couples fear the part when the priest announces that "if there's anyone here who thinks this couple shouldn’t get married… speak now or forever remain silent." This is the point when families and friends pray bitter exes are not present in the hall. Any hand raised or confession exposed could ruin the entire ceremony.

8.) Traffic

Lagos traffic has been declared the craziest in Africa if not in the world. God help you that you,  the bride, is stuck in traffic when you should have been in church two ago. What does that tell of you? What do you think your in-laws will say?

9.) LASTMA impounds the car carrying the bride

This is just catastrophic!  When the road authority holds down the car carrying the bride on her way to the church, then that wedding is in trouble. We all know what happens when these officers have you in their palms because you are either desperate or in a hurry. It will be a nightmare, to say the least.

10.) Groom/Bride arrested in church

Just how bad could a Nigerian wedding go if the broom or bride gets arrested on his/her wedding day ...  maybe in church during the ceremony? That wedding may never hold.

Abacha, Abiola died in similar circumstances, Al-Mustapha

  I Have Video Evidence Against Yoruba People, he says

A former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, Monday, said he would soon open up on what actually killed his boss and the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Bashorun MKO Abiola.
Al-Mustapha said he would unveil the untold story of how the duo died in his new book, Mustapha’s Memoirs, which, according to him, is still being worked on.

Al-Mustapha, who addressed journalists in Lagos yesterday, said one thing killed his boss and the late MKO.

He said: “For instance, when Chief MKO Abiola was in prison, many notable Nigerians visited him. They will visit him in the morning, and when they come back to the Villa in the evening to see Abacha, they would say a different thing entirely.

“Unknown to these notable Nigerians, particularly notable Yoruba personalities, who visited Abiola, their visits were recorded on video. I did the video recording without their knowledge.

“These people would visit Abiola and come back to tell government a different thing about him.

“These same people would still go and tell Abiola a different thing about government. They are on video. The agencies of government have these videos evidence.

“These same people told MKO Abiola never to accept any compromise or negotiations. They advised him never to come back home without his mandate. All these things are on video.

“Of all the Yoruba leaders, only Oba Tejuosho told MKO Abiola the truth: to accept the conditional bail and go home.

“Only Oba Tejuosho told MKO Abiola that Abacha was his friend, urging him to reconcile with Abacha who was ready for reconciliation. It was Oba Tejuosho who told MKO Abiola that he still had the goodwill and would win if he re-contests after Abacha.

“What killed Abacha is what killed MKO Abiola. But I would reveal that after my court case, still at the Supreme Court. I would publish a book which has three volumes— the Mustapha’s Memoirs, which will tell what happened under Abacha and how he died.”

On Abacha loot still being returned to the country from abroad, 18 years after his death, Al-Mustapha said he was shocked the first time he heard of Abacha’s loot.

He added that most of what was today known in the media as Abacha’s loot were mere media campaigns aimed at smearing the late Sani Abacha’s image by local and international persons he stepped on their toes while he was Head of State.

Also, Al-Mustapha restated his call for a public debate, where former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, would come to backup claims in his infamous 18-page letter that he (Al-Mustapha) was contracted to head a killer squad of 1,000 snipers for former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, ahead of the 2015 general elections.

He said: “Nobody contracted me to catch 1,000 mosquitoes under the Jonathan administration, let alone human beings. I am Al-Mustapha. I have my background away from the propaganda peddled by the likes of Obasanjo.

“Obasanjo has had his day. I am doing my investigation and I have discovered so many things as to what made him (Obasanjo) make such allegation. I have it. I will release it very soon and that is why I have challenged him to an open debate. “Obasanjo is my senior in the force; he was a former Military Head of State, but when issues of law and rights of man are being discussed, definitely equality comes to the fore.

“You cannot put an allegation against your junior because you are a senior, and you believe the junior would keep quiet. No, I would not. That would amount to ignorance. I am not ignorant about our laws.

“I challenge Obasanjo to an open debate so that he can substantiate his allegations before the whole world; but he is yet to oblige the challenge.

“Thank God a new government is here today, where he (Obasanjo) can bring up the issue, requesting it to investigate and, if there is any contract between Jonathan and I to catch one single mosquito, I want to say that I am guilty and want to be tried.”

Lionel Messi Tax Fraud Trial resumes In Spain

The trial of Argentina and Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi on tax fraud charges has begun in Spain.
Messi and his father Jorge, who manages his financial affairs, are accused of defrauding Spain of more than €4m (£3m; $4.5m) between 2007 and 2009.
The authorities allege that the two used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay to conceal earnings from image rights.
The Spanish tax agency is demanding heavy fines and prison sentences. They deny any wrongdoing.
The trial is expected to last for three days, with Messi appearing in court on Thursday.
The income related to Messi's image rights, including contracts with Banco Sabadell, Danone, Adidas, Pepsi-Cola, Procter and Gamble, and the Kuwait Food Company.

Messi's lawyers had argued that the player had "never devoted a minute of his life to reading, studying or analysing" the contracts.
But the high court in Barcelona ruled in June 2015 that the football star should not be granted immunity for not knowing what was happening with his finances, which were being managed in part by his father.
Messi and his father made a voluntary €5m (£3.8m, $5.6m) "corrective payment" - equal to the alleged unpaid tax plus interest - in August 2013.
Messi is the five-time World Player of the Year and one of the richest athletes in the world.

Buhari To Visit Niger Delta June 2 Amid Bombing Of Installations

President Muhammadu Buhari will launch the Ogoni land clean-up on June 2, a statement has said.
This was contained in a statement issued by Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, the Head of Corporate Affairs unit of the Niger Delta Development Commission, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Monday.

It stated that the Minister of the Environment, Amina Mohammed, confirmed the date when she visited Bodo in Gokana Local Government Area of the state to inspect an oil spill clean-up demonstration.

The statement quoted Mohammed as saying that the President had given assurances that the area would be cleaned-up in fulfilment of his electioneering promise to people of the Niger Delta.

Lost year in Nigeria under Buhari leaves economy on knees' - Bloomberg magazine writes

  Found this new posted on their site today. Please read the article below
President Buhari took office as Nigeria’s president a year ago on a wave of optimism that the ex-military ruler could revive a nation battered by falling oil prices and decades of corruption. Now, Africa’s biggest economy is on its knees and Buhari has been forced to throw in the towel on a central pillar of his economic policy -- a currency peg.
“It was difficult to imagine a scenario in which things got worse,” said Malte Liewerscheidt, a Nigeria analyst at Bath, U.K.-based consultant Verisk Maplecroft. “But it’s been a lost year. What’s missing is sound macroeconomic policies.”
Nigeria will soon enter a recession, according to the central bank, and an upsurge of militant attacks since February has sent crude production, which usually accounts for 70 percent of government revenue, plummeting to an almost 30-year low. Delays in approving a budget and a cabinet as well as Buhari’s refusal to weaken an overvalued currency -- until he relented this week -- have caused foreign investors to flee.
Foreign investors, fearing a devaluation, are staying away. Foreign direct investment was the lowest last year since the 2007-08 global financial crisis, and Citigroup Inc. said deals have ground to a halt. Capital controls prompted JPMorgan Chase & Co. in September to kick Nigeria out of its local-currency emerging-market bond indexes, tracked by more than $200 billion of funds.

Bond Losses

This year, Nigeria’s local-bond yields have climbed 276 basis points to 13.46 percent, leaving them as the only such securities among 31 emerging markets tracked by Bloomberg to make losses. Electricity output has plunged to about a 30th of that of South Africa, Africa’s second-biggest economy, as attacks on pipelines cut supplies of natural gas to power plants.
When Buhari beat then-President Goodluck Jonathan in the first election victory by an opposition candidate, U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration called it an “historic step for Nigeria and Africa.” A 73-year-old retired major-general who ruled from 1983 to 1985, Buhari campaigned to end the corruption he said was “killing” his country. He and his All Progressives Congress party promised to crush Boko Haram, whose Islamist insurgency has led to thousands of deaths in the northeast since 2009, and foster economic growth of as much as 10 percent.

Naira Peg

Now recession looms. The economy contracted in the first quarter by 0.4 percent, the first decline since 2004. If Buhari doesn’t alter his stance on the naira and loosen the restrictions used to defend its peg to the dollar, output will probably sink further, according to Mark Bohlund, an Africa economist with Bloomberg Intelligence in London.
“The Nigerian economy is at high risk of experiencing its first full-year recession since 1987,” Bohlund said. An improvement next year depends on security being restored in the oil-rich Niger River delta region and “a shift toward more market-based economic policy.”
Buhari was dealt a tough hand. He inherited a virtually empty treasury and Jonathan’s administration did little to diversify the economy, leaving it vulnerable to the crash in oil prices since 2014. A rainy-day fund known as the Excess Crude Account was whittled down to barely $2 billion when Buhari took office, from $21 billion in 2008.

Boko Haram

The president has won plaudits from investors for beating back Boko Haram and trying to overhaul graft-ridden institutions, including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corp., the management of which he sacked. Yet they have been left bemused by his economic policies.
He opted to keep gasoline prices capped at 87 naira ($0.44) a liter ($1.76 a gallon) until months of shortages and unrest over long fuel lines forced him to increase them by 67 percent in mid-May. He has also clung to the naira peg even as evidence showed a dollar shortage was strangling the economy. Buhari continues to oppose devaluation, though he has given the central bank leeway to implement a more flexible currency regime, his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said on Monday.
Under Governor Godwin Emefiele, the central bank began to fix the naira at 197-199 against the dollar in late February 2015, even as other oil exporters from Russia to Colombia and Kazakhstan let their currencies drop. Buhari has backed that stance since coming to power.
Businesses are struggling to operate as the central bank, whose reserves have fallen to a more than 10-year low, runs out of the dollars they need to import raw materials and equipment. Many are forced to turn to the black market, where the naira value has plunged to around 350 per dollar. That’s pushed the inflation rate to 13.7 percent, the highest in almost six years.

Currency Squeeze

U.S. carrier United Airlines said would it stop flying to Nigeria next month, in part because of the hard-currency squeeze. Foreign airlines have the naira-equivalent of $575 million trapped in the country that they can’t repatriate, according to the International Air Traffic Association. The Africa president of Unilever, whose Nigerian unit has seen its shares drop 29 percent since Buhari became president, called the currency policy “very insane.”
The central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee voted on May 24 to allow “greater flexibility” in the foreign-exchange market, which investors hoped meant that banks would be allowed to trade the naira more freely. Yet, while Emefiele said a new system would be unveiled “in the coming days,” no changes have been made.

Policy Failure

It was an “admission of the inevitable failure of the policy, which created a black market economy,” said Kingsley Moghalu, a former deputy governor at the central bank who now teaches at Tufts University in Boston. “The exchange-rate policy contributed quite significantly to creating a recessionary situation. It hit manufacturers, who could not access forex. It has created unemployment.”
The economy is so weak that Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun says officials probably won’t be able to collect enough taxes to meet the revenue target in this year’s record 6.1 trillion naira budget, which was only passed this month after senators said Buhari’s team made mistakes in the first version sent to them.
Nigeria’s 36 states, most of which depend on monthly handouts from the federal government, are on average three to four months late with salary payments to teachers, doctors and other civil servants, according to the oil minister.
“There’s a sense of exasperation among investors,” Ronak Gopaldas, a Johannesburg-based analyst at Rand Merchant Bank, said. “There’s still a level of goodwill toward Buhari and his government but it’s dissipating. The man on the street is really struggling.”

Ten Powerful Reasons to Eat Bananas

Bananas Aren’t Just For Monkeys: 

Image result for banana

Bananas are one of nature’s great snack foods, but did you know just how good for you they are and how many different and unusual uses they can have? Ahead are 10 banana health benefits for more energy, better health and even improving the way you look and feel.
1. Banana is the best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure, heart health and bone strength. One banana contains 450 mg of potassium, four times higher than cereal, bread and more. Eating two bananas a day will contribute to the prevention of hypertension, atherosclerosis and building our bones. Bananas also reduce the risk of stroke.
2.Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.
3.Bananas act as a prebiotic, stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel. They also produce digestive enzymes to assist in absorbing nutrients.
4.Bananas are the only raw fruit that can be consumed without distress to relieve stomach ulcers by coating the lining of the stomach against corrosive acids.
5.Bananas are low in sodium, and contain one mg per unit. Much of our daily diet sources, such as cereals, crackers and bread contain hundreds of milligrams of sodium. Reduction in sodium consumption is important in preventing high blood pressure, heart disease and blood vessels and loss of calcium from the bones.
6.Eating a banana can lower the body temperature and cool you during a fever or on a hot day.
7.A Swedish study showed that whole fruits and vegetables, especially bananas, help protect against kidney cancer. It was found that women who consumed more vegetables and fruits, decreased their risk of the disease, and those who consumed four to six bananas per week reduced the risk of kidney cancer by about half.
8.Bananas contain substances that help operate the cells that make up the lining of the stomach, and thus they form the protective mucous barrier against acidity. Other compounds in bananas called protease inhibitors, help destroy bacteria that causes stomach ulcers.
9.Quitting smoking? Bananas contain high levels of B-vitamins as well as potassium and magnesium to speed recovery from the effects of withdrawal.
10.Banana contains tryptophan, an amino acid that makes serotonin, an active ingredient in the nervous system. Among other functions, it regulates sleep and appetite and aids in creating a sense of relaxation.

37-Year Old Man Jailed 6 Months For Touching Girl’s Breast

Abu, who lives at 6, Mosque Close, Isheri-Olofin, Lagos State, was arraigned before Magistrate Osusanmi and sentenced last Friday for s3xually assaulting the girl Monday last week.

It was  gathered that the girl was asked by her parents to learn hairdressing, while awaiting the release of her Senior Secondary Certificate Examination, SSCE, result.

It was learned that at 7:30p.m. last week Monday, while she was returning home, Abu accosted the victim at Baale Bus Stop Akowonjo, and touched her breast without seeking her consent.

Ondo Governorship Election: God Will Choose My Successor- Mimiko

As Ondo State prepares for another Governorship election on November 26th, the State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko has said God will; choose the next Governor of Ondo State.  He made the statement during a thanksgiving service at the 15th annual convention of the Riches in Christ Evangelical Mission Akure, on Sunday.
In a statement issued by the state’s Commissioner for Information, Kayode Akinmade, Mimiko noted that God that made his re-election very peaceful would make the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State very peaceful too. His counterpart from Ekiti, Governor Ayodele Fayose who also attended the event urged the people of Ondo not to make the mistake Nigerians made by voting APC candidate, saying they should vote for a PDP candidate for the continuation of Mimiko’s work. 
“The people of Ondo State must not make the mistake we made during the last presidential election in Nigeria. My advice is that you don’t allow yourselves to be carried away by repeating the mistakes of last year that we are paying for now.
“Ondo State should not be misled by voting wrongly; it would be a big mistake on your part if you make the mistake of voting for opposition parties. The best that could happen to Ondo State is for the people to vote for the continuity of Governor Mimiko’s good legacies,” the statement quoted Fayose as saying.

Governor of the year: Ambode top list

Governor Of The Year’: See Who Topped The List

A year into office, Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has been judged to be Nigerian 2015/2016 Governor of the Year based on a comparative analysis of Governors’ performance in Nigeria.
This is according to a sttudy conducted by the Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies, CIAPS.
The study tagged CIAPS Governors’ Performance Index (CGPI) is a monthly performance review of what Governors across the country are doing in their offices and it is conducted by the Lagos based Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies (CIAPS).
In a statement released by the Centre, the CGPI coordinator, Mr Olumuyiwa Ayoola explained that the variables used as indexes for performance were mathematically calculated and this end of the year’s variables included “Payment of Salary, Infrastructure & Health, Education, Security and Business Opportunity and Employment”. According to Mr Olumuyiwa Ayoola, the action of each state governor was monitored and studied from their first day in office and the findings were graded and compared to that of fellow governors across the country.

Over the past year, CGPI results show that Kaduna state performed more than any other state to create jobs and encourage business investments. Lagos state has done more than anyone other State for security and infrastructure.
Sokoto, Kaduna and Imo States were commended for their efforts on education.
The Governors of Adamawa and Bayelsa States continue to remain at the bottom of the list as all finished in the bottom places with not more than a score of 39%.
Commenting on the CGPI report, CIAPS Centre Director and CGPI Chair, Prof Anthony Kila stated that the “CGPI is a useful tool for democracy and good governance as it allows government to be objectively measured against their peers and compels all in power to be mindful of accountability”.
The variables used for measuring Governors performance this month after one year in office factors the limited powers of State Governors as well as what they can do.
Kila further explained that he hopes that the CGPI monthly reports will allow governors to sit up, improve their performances during their tenure and even enter into healthy competition between themselves for the benefit of their states and the country as a whole. He advised that Governors rated as apoor to roll up their sleeves and improve governance rather than enter into a media war or words with observers.

Former Chad President Convicted Of Rape, Sexual Slavery Among Others

Former President of Chad Hissene Habre has been convicted of crimes against humanity, rape, sexual slavery and torture at a trial in Senegal. The trial is the first time an African Union-backed trial has prosecuted the former leader of a member state for human rights abuses.

"The systematic torture at such a large scale was his way of governing," said Gberdao Gustave Kam, the presiding judge, reading a summary of the verdict, as quoted by the New York Times. "Hissene Habre showed no compassion toward the victims or any regret about the massacres and rapes that were committed."

At the trial in Senegal's capital, Dakar, Habre denied accusations that he ordered the killing of 40,000 people while he served as ruler from 1982 to 1990. Prosecutors demanded a life sentence for the 72-year-old....

The case was heard by the Extraordinary African Chambers in Senegal's capital, Dakar, a special criminal court set up by the African Union within the West African nation's court system.
Habre had refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of the court, shouted abuse during proceedings, and had to be carried into the court after refusing to appear.

The verdict marks the end of a 16 year battle for justice by victims and human rights groups after Habre was toppled in a 1990 coup. After living in exile in Senegal for 22 years, Habre was arrested in Dakar in July, 2013. He has been dubbed 'Africa's Pinochet' for his crimes.

Buhar 1 year: Yobe state government spent N18m on advert leaving schools in sorry state

...Yobe state government, journalist Jaafar Jaafar exchange words on social media over N18m advert congratulating Buhari for wasting 365 days in office

....The government justifies wrong doing i.e na so every government dey do am

The Yobe state government and Kano based journalist/London School of Public Relations graduate, Jaafar Jaafar have been exchanging hot words on social media since yesterday. It all started after Jaafar posted photos of a dilapidated school in Yobe State on Facebook, comparing it to the alleged N18million front page advert, to congratulate president Buhari on his first year in office, which was sponsored by the state governor.

This morning, Yobe state government replied Jaafar and he fired back. See all that after the cut...

"More pictures from Government Day Secondary School Gashua, Yobe State. Before this dilapidation, it was one of the best schools in the North East. Sadly, the governor chose to "sustain democracy" on the pages of newspapers and ignore the school"

SA to Yobe State Governor replies Jaafar Jaafar. "We paid for the advertorial but so did all state governments"

A statement issued by Abdullahi Bego, the Special Adviser to Yobe State Governor on Media:
"An Internet Warrior's Internet Mischief: An engagement with Jaafar Jaafar
I respect Jafar Jafar, the young, active journalist and social media chatfigure. Like the rest of us, he is a human being who has opinions and idiosyncacies. His views always come through even on relatively unfamiliar subjects. Plus, I know him to be friends with some media assistants of a major Yobe opposition figure, who has stood for election many times.
So, when Jaafar Jaafar posted the front page of the Daily Trust on Sunday today and said the Yobe State Government paid N18 million for it, I knew instinctively this was a clear act of mischief.
Here is why:
The Daily Trust today carried a 'wrap-around' publication on the Yobe State Government in which not just the front page but the second, third and fourth pages of the paper were devoted to highlighting the activities of the Yobe State Government. 
The front page was a congratulatory message to President Buhari, and it acknowledges the effort of the Buhari-led federal government in restoring peace to Yobe and the Northeast. We thought it was auspicious on this day when the President has marked one year in office to appreciate his effort in defeating Boko Haram and helping to bring respite to our people. It is also a way of saying we are following the security effort of the Federal Government and we are hugely invested in it.
The second, third and fourth pages highlighted in some detail and with pictures the various interventions of the Gaidam-led government over the past year and over the course of the governor's first term in office. The pages spoke to developments in healthcare, education, roads and youth empowerment, among others despite all the recent security challenges and the ongoing fiscal straits.
What Jaafar Jaafar wrote is clearly mischievous because he showed only the Daily Trust front page and said it was worth N18 milion. He refused to show the three other pages. But even if he did, the entire publication - the front page and the remaining three coloured pages - is nowhere near the figure he quoted.
Of course we paid for the advertorial. But so did all the State Governments, corporate organisations and individuals who advertised in the paper today. Advertisement is a newspaper's major source of revenue. So, Daily Trust will not devote pages 1, 2, 3 and 4 of its edition for free.
Over time, we have learnt that the political opposition in Yobe is always very happy when the Gaidam administration is accused of not performing. It serves their crave for political power and provides a cannon for their misinformation.
So, whenever those claims were belied, and the Gaidam administration is portrayed as doing its best within circumstances that are heavily stifling and limiting, those opposition demagogues get jitery. They feel exposed; that people will learn differently from what they say.
But it doesn't matter. If Jaafar Jaafar has chosen to support the manufacture and spread of lies on the internet, something he said he is opposed to many times, then that's his choice. If his choice is to put aside the reputation he has built for himself - and for which many of us respect him - and follow in the direction of those cynical, mischievous political opponents, that's also his choice.
It is his choice to speak and write the truth. It is also his choice to lie, just like he did. (And he is yet to bring evidence that we actually paid the sum he concocted).
But we also have a choice to state what we know to be the truth: That the four pages of advertisement in Daily Trust today were paid for. But we didn't pay N18 milion. Since the entire argument is about the figure of N18 million, that figure is a false, period! Otherwise everyone knows that advertisements are payable. And all governments at all levels advertise from time to time.
As a student of comunications, I know that social media are hugely empowering. For the price of a GSM internet data, anyone can go onine to say whatever they want. And it is in the nature of our democracy that people express their opinions. That's okay because democracies are enriched by them.
Here is the catch: We have a responsibility to be truthful and factual and to not malign people unjustifiably, despite our right to express our opinions.
Unless we adhere to this basic fact about the need to be responsbile and factual, Jaafar Jaafar's own call - on BBC Hausa recently - that we should not use the internet to accuse people wrongly will continue to fall in deaf ears. That would be a blow to his advocacy for responsible and informed use of the internet."
Jaafar Jaafar replies, "Public funds are being embezzled to 'sustain democracy' on the pages of newspapers"

The war of words between journalist Jaafar Jaafar and SA to Yobe State Gover, Abdullahi Bego, continues. His response below:
"Dear Sir, I don't join issues with senior professional colleagues, especially those I hold in high esteem. On this, I'll take exception to my standpoint. Before I posted the pictures, I called an advert executive at Daily Trust who confirmed that N18 million is the cost of full front page advert. In your about 1,000-word piece, I expected you give Yobe people a hint of what government spent to buy over the four strategic pages of the newspaper. You evaded the issue and parried the question all through. It may be possible you negotiated the price and got a rebate as a former staff, but the fact remains that public funds were embezzled "to sustain democracy" on the pages of newspapers when public schools are in squalor. Your principal should have turned his attention to post-war reconstruction of Yobe State than egoistic profligacy. On my "friendship" with the opposition in Yobe, I just wondered who you were alluding to as my "friend". If you ask me, the best friend I have in Yobe is you. Warm regards. Jaafar Jaafar"
