Too late for restructuring, lets break up – Annkio Briggs

Environmental and Human rights activist, Annkio Briggs , has said that it is too late for Nigeria to be restructured, maintaining that what the country needs is total breakup so every emerged country will develop at its own pace.
Mrs. Briggs said that the north has more numbers in the National Assembly and hence, can always influence to their interest any bill or action they feel is against their interest, saying such could happen with the restructuring call.

Briggs said: “Going by the figures, the North is getting over 60 percent of the total local government allocations and even when we come to the states as well they also receive far more than the Southern states.

Federal character delusion and crisis of character

“Sorrow is better than fear. Fear is a journey, a terrible journey. But sorrow is at least an arrival. When the storm threatens, a man is afraid for his house. But when the house is destroyed, there is something to do. About a storm he can do nothing, but he can rebuild a house…”
“Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that’s the inheritor of our fear…”
“The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again”. (Alan Paton, Cry, The Beloved Country).

The setting of Alan Paton’s Cry, The Beloved Country is apartheid South Africa. But it is beginning to appear that the artful author had the Nigeria’s current dispensation in mind too when he wrote that evergreen novel. First, the title of the novel is apt for the current situation in the country that showed so much promise at independence but available data pieces are beginning to portray the most

North Korea likens Trump to Hitler

North Korea compared US President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler on Tuesday in its latest diatribe, amid high tensions over Pyongyang’s military ambitions and ahead of a visit to Washington by South Korea’s new leader.
The latest attack came a week after nuclear-armed Pyongyang called Trump a “lunatic” as tensions rose following the death of US student Otto Warmbier, who was detained for 18 months in the North and then sent home in a coma.
 US President Donald Trump
An editorial on the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) dialled the hostile rhetoric up higher, slamming Trump’s key policies as being akin to “Nazism in the 21st century”.
Trump declared at his inauguration in January that “From this moment on, it’s going to be America first”.
KCNA said: “The ‘American-first principle’… advocates the world domination by recourse to military means just as was the case with Hitler’s concept of world occupation.”
Trump was “following Hitler’s dictatorial politics” to divide others into two categories, “friends and foes” to justify “suppression”, it added.

California Man Visits Disneyland 2,000 Days In A Row

As one of the world's largest entertainment companies, Disney is used to adoring fans but one man has topped them all, visiting its California theme park 2,000 days in a row.
Jeff Reitz marked the milestone on Thursday, using his Disneyland Resort annual pass which had enabled his trek to the park on a daily basis since January 1, 2012.

"What we mostly know about him is that he loves Disneyland," said John McClintock, a spokesman for the theme park.
"When I asked him what he likes about the park, he said he likes all the shows and all the attractions but he did mention that he really likes to listen to the music in the park," he added. "I guess he finds it relaxing."
McClintock said Disney has yet to come across someone as enamored with the park as Reitz, an Air Force veteran in his 40s who usually shows up after work and spends a few hours.
"His girlfriend frequently comes with him but not every day," he said. "That would be true love, wouldn't it?"

CAN Slams Nigerian Govt. Over ‘Jesus Son Of God’ Curriculum Question: Pastor/Acting President Osinbajo Says Nothing

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has accused the Nigerian government of inserting a controversial topic in the new school curriculum, which questions whether Jesus Christ is the son of God.

According to the Guardian, the bishop emphasized that the ordinary Nigerian would be the ones to bear the brunt of chaos if it occurs.

We on the ground ought to remember that when things get hot, there are certain people up there who always find a way out, fly their families abroad and leave the poor people to suffer. So we better take that seriously and not allow anybody to push us into a situation where there is general disorganized chaos,” he said.

Canadian Sniper Sets Record For Longest Confirmed Kill In Military History

A Canadian sniper has beat the record for the longest confirmed kill in military history by picking off an ISIS fighter from a staggering 11,319 feet.
The bullet was fired from a McMillan TAC-50 rifle set on a high-rise tower and took 10 seconds to travel the 2.14 miles towards the fighter, who was attacking Iraqi soldiers.
This smashed the last record set by a Briton Craig Harrison, who killed a Taliban soldier with a 338 Lapua Magnum rifle at a range of 8,120 feet(1.54 miles) in 2009.
A military source told The Globe and Mail the kill was verified by video, adding: 'This is an incredible feat. It is a world record that might never be equalled.'
The third longest kill was by Canadian Corporal Rob Furlong, who shot down an Afghan insurgent from 7,972 feet(1.51 miles) in 2002 during Operation Anaconda.

South Sudan No Longer In Famine

South Sudan is no longer classified as being in famine following an increase in aid, a UN-backed report says.
However, the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) report says 1.7 million people are still facing emergency levels of hunger, one step below famine.
There has been an increase in humanitarian assistance since famine was declares in February
The famine, announced in February, was the first be declared anywhere in the world since 2011.
Armed conflict, low harvests and soaring food prices have been blamed.
Tens of thousands of people have died and millions displaced since fighting erupted in the country more than three years ago.
The IPC report says the numbers at risk of starvation have increased to six million, up from 5.5 million last month.
The United Nations says the world is facing its biggest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War Two, with a total of nearly 20 million people facing starvation in north-east Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen, as well as South Sudan.

When is a famine declared?

The Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) system classes a famine as:
  • At least 20% of the population has access to fewer than 2,100 kilocalories of food a day
  • Acute malnutrition in more than 30% of children
  • Two deaths per 10,000 people, or four child deaths per 10,000 children every day

Otto Warmbier Former North Korea Detainee Is Dead.

The 22-year-old, who was in a coma when he was released by North Korea, died Monday afternoon in Cincinnati, Ohio, with his family at his side.

Warmbier spent 17 months in detention where his family believes he was tortured into a vegetative state. "It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost — future time that won't be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds," his family said. "But we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable person."

The Specious Lies Of Ghetto Minister Lai Mohammed By Femi Fani-Kayode

I watched the minister information and culture Lai (aka Lie) Mohammed’s ‘Politics Today’ interview with Seun Okinbaloye of Channels Television a few days ago and I felt sorry for Nigeria.
I couldn’t help wondering why Channels Television keeps offering its respected platform to this shameless old fool to beam, broadcast and perpetuate unadulterated falsehood to the Nigerian people and to tell specious lies. The whole thing is simply incredulous.

Nigeria's Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed
During the course of that interview he told one big lie after the other with such ease and without batting an eyelid. I really do wonder how this man sleeps at night. I guess such things come naturally to him.
I look at his face and all I see is an unconscionable and relentless shit projector and sewage propeller.
He reminds me of one of those filth-ridden open gutters in India’s City of Mumbai: all manner of unprintable and disgusting things flow in and through it for all to smell and see.
Everything about him, including how he looks, what he says, what he wears and how he talks stinks to high heavens.
