​*DEAR YOUNG GUYS AT THE AGE OF 25 TO 30* by 

Don’t make mistakes some of our Fathers or Senior Brothers made.

Marry now with the little you have. Don’t wait to

be a millionaire, Have kids early so you can grow

with them. Grow with your kids and succeed with

your wife. You will never finish making money or

achieving your plans. You might still not succeed

at your target year. So start your life early, with

consistency you will grow.

My father said this to me: _When i was 25, i was

talking about making billions before i marry.

Many years later, billions didn’t come, yet no kid

no wife… I had an opportunity to marry the most beautiful love

of my life very early, But my fear was, can i

really take care of her? But right now She’s married with

Four grown up children. The guy that married her

was still schooling then, but had the courage.

They worked hard and succeeded together. I

failed, so please if you can feed yourself, you can

feed your wife. You have to believe it, marry

early, don’t wait.
 Don’t make our mistakes, I see

my childhood friends play with their kids.. Most

of them are not doing as well as me.. But they

are happier with their families..

Trust me it isn’t money only, but Rather your Maturity, your

happiness depends entirely on your wisdom and the way you Handle Life. With

a well planned life they are happier.

 Trust me it

isn’t money, What is our problem? Build mansion, buy the latest Car in Town, marry Sharon stone type, but still we don’t have those things we dreamt of,

and of course the years we wasted, we can never have them neverrrr!!!_

Please don’t be 60yrs old and your kids will still

be in their 20’s..What are you supposed to be at

that age? Their grand father.

Please young men, take my advice seriously.

Marry, don’t be afraid, that girl you are finding too many 

fault in has many good qualities if you look well.
Don’t think you will get every thing before you

settle down. God can change your life in a blink,

with a good and Focus wife by your side, you will succeed

by God grace….Amen
 *Ladies, please try and pass this across to Ur boyfriend or fiancé*  *Guys please have a   re-think and tell other guys about it too… And consider this advice*°°°°°°°°

IGBO LAND NEEDS HEALING..HATE IT OR LOVE IT, THE MORE WE RUN FROM THE BITTER TRUTH THE STINKER OUR REGION BECOME – Chike Afanna 

I’ve been in very deep pains since yesterday. I’m from Nnewi and my grandmother is from that village [Amakwa, Ozubulu].
The issue is not an isolated case as Gov. Obiano said yesterday. The degradation of our moral values started many years ago. I can trace this drug business and get-rich-quick syndrome to Awka-etiti in the same Anambra State, where suddenly a Secondary School student will quit School, join a drug gang in their village, his travel papers will be processed and he will travel to Europe or Americas.
After 3 months, he will build a mansion and buy big cars. There was massive withdrawal from Schools by young boys in pursuit of quick money. Then, US government sent their marines to come and arrest their kingpins here in Nigeria. Then Musa Bamayi broke the gangs, including the gangs in Ojoto and Oraifte.
Then it was about bringing the drugs from South America to Nigeria and from Nigeria to Europe. They also bring from Thailand and Pakistan to Nigeria and take to Europe and America.
Thereafter, new gangs developed in Nnewi, Utu, Ukpor and Onitsha. These gangs are much bigger and well connected to the worst and deadly gangs in South America. They have outposts in all African countries and they move the drugs in tons.
Most of their drugs end up in South Africa, Europe and some Asian countries. These guys use shipping containers, submarines to ship drugs and can drop it anywhere on African continent before looking for ways to move it around.
They have money and can buy new cars and create compartments, load drugs in those compartments and can drive from Nigeria to South Africa by road. The journey can take up to 30 days.
This guy called Bishop joined at this level and blossomed when one guy called Atine who came from Nnewi South was killed in South America. The guy is married to a Brazilian lady and connected to the global biggest Barons and delivers tons of drugs to Africa.
This guy called Bishop inherited Atine’s network and took it to another level. He started to import semi processed ‘Coke’ and brought many guys into Nigeria from South America. He will import containers of ephedrine into Nigeria from India and the South Americans will use it to produce tons of ‘ice’, which is also called ‘met’.
He was shipping his products to South Africa and made real money through this deal. That guy has made more than $3billion in less than 4yrs. His boys are all over the world and to clip his wings will need an international collaboration.
Let me stop at this point and will write more on this as events unfolds.
We have a very big problem in Igbo land. Most young people who didn’t go to school wants to be billionaires within the shortest possible time. Crime means a fancy word among the young people. It’s a normal way of life, and prison is considered a slight distraction. If you have not gone to prison, you’re considered a non-starter.
Kidnapping, 419 and other forms of crime is considered a normal way to riches and once you succeed, the traditional rulers, religious leaders and politicians will be falling over themselves to recognize the criminals.
Governor Obiano commissioned the roads built by this criminal, Catholic bishops accepted his built Churches and cars without question.
Parents are withdrawing their kids from School and send them out to any country at all, to go and succeed like Bishop of Ozubulu. They just don’t care about the crimes they commit as long as they send money to them.
A beg make una put us for prayer, help us beg God to forgive us and heal our land. Igbo land needs God.

​Re: Buhari, not Nnamdi Kanu is the biggest enabler of Biafra by khalifa musa muhammad 

The above subjective piece, by Farooq Kperogi, appeared in the “Daily Trust Saturday” of 15 July 2017. For the umpteenth time, Dr Kperogi demonstrates that he is a lazy, irresponsible and reckless scholar. In addition he is a charlatan.

Tension over the Biafra affair has reached fever-pitch in Nigeria. Efforts are in top gear to douse the tension. Our sagacious Acting President in tandem with all stakeholders especially the Northern Governors Forum are working assiduously to calm frayed nerves. But, nincompoops like Dr Kperogi are adding oxygen to the fire with half-truths regarding President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB).
Farooq Kperogi is an educated illiterate that is why he does not know that the Biafran brouhaha predates PMB. The agitators have a number of issues which they summarize in one word: marginalisation. A senior citizen told me that alleged marginalisation of the Igbos has been advanced by prominent Igbos since the 1980s. In fact the word ‘marginalisation’ was popularised by a second republic presidential adviser of Igbo extraction since the late 1980s. This erudite Nigerian later led the Senate in the fourth republic.  It demonstrates poor research and lazy scholarship by Kperogi to put the blame of agitation for Biafra on PMB.
The nebulous claim of alleged marginalisation of the Igbos hovers around on a number of factors like having five states in the south-east and seven states in the north-west of Nigeria. Meanwhile, the north-west geo-political zone is several times bigger than the south-east. Even Sokoto State alone is about the size of all the five states of the south-east combined. Besides, what about comparing  the population of the two zones? Another factor is the struggle to have an Igbo president. For crying out loud PMB is not the stumbling block to Igbos having a president in Nigeria. After all in 2015 PMB did not contest against an Igbo candidate. Appointments at the federal level (read sharing of the national cake)is another bone of contention. Kperogi is so thick-headed not to notice that even states that contributed massively to PMB‘s victory in 2015 got junior ministers. These are Borno, Kaduna, Sokoto, and Yobe. I am not aware people from these states are complaining. Meanwhile, most states from the south-east got senior ministers courtesy of Buhari’s statesmanship. This leadership quality of Buhari is reinforced by appointing the head of service of the federation and a service chief from a south-south state that did not vote for him. Cynics like Kperogi turned a blind eye to all these noble actions by President Buhari.
Farooq Kperogi should know that as far as “marginalisation” is concerned all the six zones in the country have one or two grievances. Thus, it is not only the Igbos that feel marginalised.
In paragraph 14 of the piece, Kperogi criticised PMB for advising corpers to admonish their brethren to forget Biafra. The exhortation by PMB to the young Nigerians was an acme of statesmanship. Truth is bitter and it must be told categorically no matter whose ox is gored. History will vindicate PMB – or “the just” – to quote the great Zik of Africa.  Again, this shows that Kperogi is a worthless scholar for quoting Mr President out of context and for asserting that our imperfections should be swept under the carpet.
To buttress the fact that Kperogi is a disgrace to PhD holders he compared apples with oranges in the same paragraph 14. For Dr Kperogi’s information all well-meaning Muslims from the Sultan of Sokoto down to Youth Corpers and primary school pupils condemn terrorism: the obnoxious act is diametrically opposed to the ideals of Islam.
However, as regards the current Biafran agitation by Nnamdi Kanu no prominent Igbo son, until recently, came out to condemn him. He was spewing vitriolic, virulent and vicious language against Nigeria (which he calls a zoo), PMB, Hausas, Fulanis and northerners. How dare you Dr Kperogi blame PMB! This is unfair, uncalled for and misguided.
In another vein, I said you Dr Kperogi are a charlatan. Yes, you are! You tried without success to delve into psychology to prove some points. You should stick to your profession which is mass communication. Otherwise you will keep on exposing your intellectual bankruptcy. And, sooner than later, your Uncle Sam employers would realise that you lack substance and sack you as a faculty member in their ivory tower. For instance, an imbecile of a college professor like you kept on asserting that it was a Songhai scholar, Abd-al-Sadi in 1655, that coined the word “Yariba” for the current name Yoruba (of the south-west Nigeria). Yet, as a professor you relied only on one source. You threw all the guidelines of research methodology; you did not do a rigorous analysis. You ignorantly missed some basic facts. Hausaland is closer to Yorubaland than the home of the other scholar you mentioned who lived hundreds of kilometers from the home of the Yorubas. You did not contact experts on Hausa language who are abundant in Bayero University where you got your first degree. Hausas have traded, inter-married and had a host of other social, political and economic interactions with the people called Yariba (now Yoruba) for decades before 1665. Works by the pre-eminent historian, Dr Bala Usman and others, have shown that there were commonalities among almost all the present six geo-political zones for centuries. Yet, the Hausas never had a name for their esteemed neighbours! This cannot be possible by any stretch of imagination. You are lousy scholar Farooq. You stupidly argued that the Hausas borrowed the word from elsewhere through Sultan Bello only in 1812 (your column in ‘’Daily Trust’’ 1 July 2012).
What must have happened was that the people of Mali and Songhai empires had earlier and closer contact with great Arab writers like Al Maghili, Mahmud Kati, Ibn Batuta, Leo Africanus and their precursors. Therefore, they had imbibed the art of chronicling events as a result of earlier, closer and more frequent association with these great Arab historians. The literacy level in Hausaland, in Arabic language, which was one of the universal languages of intellectual discourse, was not that high in the mid-seventeenth century.  So, Dr Kperogi carry out more research and please jettison your cock-eyed theory that it was not the Hausas that coined the word Yariba (now Yoruba). It is disappointing that as a teacher of communication you do not know some of the basics of etymology.
My humble advice to you Dr Kperogi is to pursue research in these unexplored areas and push the frontiers of knowledge. Even at this, you should collaborate with the relevant experts: historians, anthropologists, sociologists, geographers and economists. There are scores of them in your great alma mater – Bayero University Kano.
Farooq Kperogi you nauseate a lot of people with what the Hausas call “karamin sani kukumi ne” (little knowledge is dangerous). You know so little but you try to show that you know a lot. Learn from the great philosopher Socrates who always said: “I don’t know”. Well, history and posterity know better – Socrates was highly knowledgeable. Not you Kperogi are an incurable and haughty ignoramus.
As an African child, avoid insulting elders like Alh Lai Mohammed and PMB. One day you too will grow old. As for PMB, at the last summit of African Heads of Government in Addis Ababa he was given kudos for his various policies. His wife, Aisha Buhari, was given the singular honour of reading to the whole world the communiqué of the resolutions of the First Ladies. And, most tellingly, even Baba Buhari’s staunchest critics acknowledge that he is not corrupt.
Unfortunately, narrow-minded columnists like you do not see all these – that Africa has enormous respect for our dear President Buhari. These are issues you should dwell on not the infantile, shallow and woolly-headed articles you write. On a positive note your column in ‘’ Daily Trust on Sunday’’, Politics of Grammar, is educative. Toe that line and become a universally acclaimed professor. For example, a Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie, was awarded a French literary award for one of her works (‘Daily Trust on Sunday’, 16 July 2017). She is focused as writer and does not blindly stray into an unknown terrain and turf unlike you Kperogi. So, borrow a leaf from Chimamanda Adichie. Avoid delving into troubled waters of social criticism without knowing your onions. Worse still, you employ crude, intemperate and unmagisterial language against our elders and leaders. Quintessential columnists in the stable of ‘Daily Trust’ like Dr Jibrin Ibrahim, Ibrahim Dooba, Gambo Dori, Al Ghazzali, Tunde Asaju, Wole Olawoye, Eugine Enahoro, Jideofor Adibe and Sonala Olumhense are effective as social critics without being abrasive and crude like you Farook Kperogi. Thus, I humbly advise you to drink from the mature and measured style of your aforementioned colleagues.
On a final note, please try and avoid this Biafran issue so as not to aggravate tension in Nigeria. There are a thousand and one topics you could address. We want peace, stability, economic development, employment, industrialisation, efficient infrastructure in our fatherland. All-peace loving Hausas, Igbos, Fulanis, Yorubas, Baribas, Batonus, Nupes, Efiks, Ibibios, Ijaws, Yalas, Tivs, Eguns, Kanuris and the over 250 ethnic groups want one Nigeria. And, on a serious note, irresponsible, crude and bellicose columnists like Dr Farooq Kperogi should be censored by “Daily Trust”. Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

​Whistle Blower Policy and Financial Crime by Khalifa Musa Muhammad (Malam Wiz)

On December 21, 2016 the Federal Government adopted a new policy on whistle blowing. Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun issued a statement after the Federal Executive Council meeting, chaired by President Buhari. She said: “the policy is a stop gap initiative until the National Assembly formally passes a law on whistle blowing. The new policy encourages Nigerians with information on financial crimes to disclose it”. She added: “the anonymity and protection of whistle blowers will be guaranteed.” Another crucial aspect of this policy is the incentive: 2.5-5% of the recovered loot will be given to the whistle blower.

President Buhari is known for his integrity and honesty; throughout his years in the Nigerian Army he displayed these qualities. As a Head of State(1984-1985), Buhari implemented War Against Indiscipline and also dealt with corrupt individuals. Even after his years in the Army, Buhari has advocated for fight against corruption; he is incorruptible and detests corruption.
We have different corrupt practices but the one Nigerians are sick and tired of is financial crime. Financial crime includes: fraud, money laundering, bribery and looting amongst others. Financial crime is a precursor to corrupt practices and can also lead to social vices. Financial crime in an organization will badly affect the economy of that organization.
To Buhari and his supporters this policy is a boost and good development to the fight against corruption; to the looters and their sympathisers this is a setback and an obstacle. Most importantly, Nigeria will benefit from this policy and any patriotic Nigerian will support it. The policy has started yielding fruit so far. The Federal Government has recovered $136,676,600.51 from an account in a commercial bank under a fake name, followed by 7 billion Naira and $15 million from another person and 1 billion Naira from yet another (Vanguard 12 February, 2017).
The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said “when we told Nigerians that there was a primitive and mindless looting of the national treasury under the last administration, some people called us liars. Well, the whistle-blower policy is barely two months old and Nigerians have started feeling its impact, seeing how a few people squirreled away public funds. It is doubtful if any economy in the world will not feel the impact of such mind boggling looting of the treasury as was experienced in Nigeria. Yet whatever has been recovered so far, including the $9.2 million by the EFCC, is just a tip of the iceberg” (Vanguard 12 February, 2017).
In recent years, we have had two whistle blowers whose claim were futile and unfortunately both of them were suspended. This happened before the whistle blower policy was adopted. 
Some $9.8m and 74,000 pounds were found in the house of a former Group Managing Director of NNPC. This is mind boggling; the mode of concealing the illicit funds was exceptional. In an era where the general populace thinks that illicit funds are hidden in Lagos and Abuja, he brought it to Kaduna. In Kaduna State one would expect that the funds will be hidden at U/Rimi or Malali amongst others. As a good strategist, he was able to divert attention and confuse anticipation: he took the money to Sabon Tasha and hid it in a fire proof safe. Outstanding!
Sabon Tasha is not one of the posh areas in Kaduna State. Sabo as it is popularly called is one of the slums in Kaduna. If Sabo had anticipated being in the limelight as the hideout of illicit funds it would have declined such offer. One expects that the house that will keep such a whopping amount will be beautiful, but hell no! The house had no fence or gate. To cut a long story short, the house does not seem capable of stashing a million. Certainly, looks deceive.
The children and grandchildren of Sabo will be told stories of how it housed such amount without benefitting. If Sabo had a deity it will surely curse this man.
A Federal High Court sitting in Kano ordered the forfeiture of the money to Federal Government. This man fought back and asked a court in Kano to set aside the order of forfeiture (Daily Trust 20 February, 2017 Page 4). He is telling us that he got the money as gift from unnamed persons. If it was found at the residence of one of the country’s billionaire – with a legitimate business – the case would have been different.
It was alleged that the Southern Kaduna Coalition of Professional issued a statement supporting him; saying he is being witch-hunted. This kind of sycophancy and ethnic bigotry is annoying and disappointing.  Why not wait and see how things unfold? Or prove that the money is legitimate. Yet they call themselves professionals.
The whistle blower policy was adopted at the right time. People are now on the lookout, they don’t care if it’s their relative or friend. This policy will aid in the fight against corruption.
At a two-day judicial colloquium, organised by the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies (CSLS). The then Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walker Onnoghen highlighted section 1 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act signed into law by President Jonathan in 2015. He said “the purpose of this act is to ensure that the system of administration of criminal justice in Nigeria promotes efficient management of criminal justice institutions, speedy dispensation of justice, protection of the society from crime and protection of the rights and interests of the suspects, the defendant and the victim” (Daily Trust February 21, 2017 Page 31). It’s been two years since the act was signed into law, but the pace at which it is driving the anti-corruption fight is lethargic. Nigerians want something better that will serve as a catalyst to this fight.
A lawless society is in the state of anarchy and impunity will surely reign. A society without law is in a terrible condition. A society that will jail a goat thief and allow a looter to keep roaming about is slightly different from the aforementioned. The law is not fair and we are tired of this inequality.
These looters are rich. In the society they are influential and wield a lot of power. Their CVs can be intimidating and some have reached the peak of their careers. We the youths used to look up to them. This makes one to believe that in Nigeria you reach the top only by contact with the corrupt: either by brushing their shoulders or to wine and dine with them.  Now that their masks have been unveiled – no need to look up to these characters.
A glance through the illicit funds forfeiture cases pending shows a huge amount of funds yet to be recovered. The siphoned money will significantly fund the budget of most African countries.  If the looted funds were invested in infrastructure, Nigeria would have been better off in terms of socio-economic development.
Identifying these looters is a defining moment in the history of this great Nation. Posterity and history will judge this administration for exposing the bad eggs. I urge the National Assembly, Judiciary, Ministry of Justice, Nigerian Bar Association and all stakeholders to support this fight. Necessity is the mother of invention; so they should create and implement measures that will facilitate the fight against financial crimes in Nigeria. Those culpable should face the full wrath of law. No more excuses! No more prolonged detention! All we want is conviction!
I support what the erudite columnist Jibrin Ibrahim said “we should open a register in what should be called the National Hall of Shame, where the names and terrible deeds of mega thieves will be displayed”.
I duly believe this will help in curtailing corrupt practices for subsequent generations.

RE: PROPAGANDOCRACY AND THE BUHARI MEDIA CENTRE by Khalifa Musa Muhammad (Malam Wiz)

Dear readers please ensure that Dr Farooq Kperogi and Muhammad Labbo (Chairman Buhari Media Support Group) read this rejoinder. Thank you. 
RE: PROPAGANDOCRACY AND THE BUHARI MEDIA CENTRE
The above-mentioned piece, by Farooq Kperogi, appeared in Daily Trust of Saturday 4 March 2017. It was, among other things, a rejoinder to Muhammad Labbo’s article in the opinion column of Daily Trust on 2 March 2017. In paragraph 17 his 20-paragraph rejoinder, Dr Farooq Kperogi advised Muhammad Labbo to take ‘elementary lessons in grammar and logic’. I will dwell much on this in due course.
I have followed Kperogi’s writings in the last few months and he seems to derive pleasure in insulting people, especially President  Muhammadu Buhari’s (PMB) supporters who do not share his views. A lot of people are appalled by the despicable language Dr Kperogi uses many a time. The conclusion my friends and I draw is that Kperogi is a disgrace to scholarship.
By all standards, Dr Kperogi knows his onions as an expert on English grammar. As an acclaimed scholar, Dr Kperogi should know that life is not restricted to “grammar and logic” – there are zillions of variables, factors and issues that influence man’s social, political, economic, cultural, legal and environmental activities. Reducing everything to “grammar and logic” by Dr Kperogi poignantly demonstrates that he is an educated illiterate – despite the fact that he is a PhD and teaches in an American University.
In the same issue of Daily Trust that Dr Kperogi threw tantrums at Muhammad Labbo and our dear PMB another Nigerian, much younger than him (Kperogi), was being celebrated. The novelist Chimamanda Adichie has been elected into the American Academy of Arts and Letters (Daily Trust 4 March 2017 page 38). She has etched her name in the annals of America’s great writers. Kperogi should learn from Adichie and other greats in the literary world – Rabindranath Tagore, Jean-Paul Sartre, Abubakar Imam, Abubakar Gimba, Achebe, Soyinka, Senghor, et al  – and enter the hall of fame in scholarship. Otherwise, I gleefully predict, that at the end of your career, you would be banished – in sha Allah – to the labyrinth of ignominy.
You, Dr Kperogi may be too thick-headed to join the club of the great icons. But, you can contribute to scholarship in many ways without insulting PMB and other leaders you do not agree with. Let me assure you that your “Politics of Grammar” column is good. You could continue along that line and Allah (SWT) knows how many great heights you can attain beginning with your seminal work on “glocal” English. Dr Kperogi, my humble advice to you is:  do not stray into areas like logic which obviously you are an ignoramus. There is no logic you can refer to from Socrates, Aristotle, etc to the present day to deny the achievements of PMB especially in the fight against corruption. Therefore, stop chasing shadows with your sesquipedalian grammar and dispassionately look at other social issues PMB is addressing.
PMB, if I may let you know, has a pedigree throughout his public service career in the Nigerian Army.  A few examples will suffice: he was one of the junior officers the then Lt Col Yakubu Gowon trusted and therefore  deployed in Lagos in January 1966 to bust the lopsided, ethnically biased bloody mutiny led by Major Ifeajuna in Lagos (and Major Nzeogwu in Kaduna). Buhari fought gallantly during the Nigerian Civil War (See Obasanjo’s “My Command”).  Buhari served diligently as a military governor, minister (then known as federal commissioner) of petroleum and General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3 Division of the Nigerian Army in Jos. Let it be known to a narrow-minded teacher of journalism like you that as GOC in Jos in 1983 Buhari decisively ended the menace of Chadian ragtag soldiers who were harassing Nigerian civilians along the shores of Lake Chad.
 Furthermore, let armchair critics like Dr Farooq “Fraud” Kperogi who cannot see beyond the four walls of a university classroom know that Buhari handled the funds from the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) where he exhibited probity, transparency and accountability. A lot of infrastructural projects were executed throughout the length and breadth of Nigeria; drugs and facilities were supplied to hospitals; books and other equipment were supplied to schools (primary to tertiary). It is on record that up to now there are PTF books in libraries in schools in the country. These few examples have few parallels in history of leadership in Africa. Buhari’s sobriquet should be “Farooq” – one who distinguishes right from wrong. The appellation should not be for a nincompoop like you. Let me add that you are antithetical to the beautiful name Farooq.
Yes, I dare say that Dr Farooq Kperogi you are myopic.  Your attitude towards contemporary leadership issues in Nigeria is the nadir of scholarship. The zenith of an intellectual, Dr Kperogi , is to accept that “I do not know” – also known as Socratic logic. It is a disgrace to you as a scholar for us, much younger people than you, to teach you Socratic approach to learning.
Dr Kperogi, you have the mistaken impression that it was people like you that worked for PMB’s epic victory in 2015: this is a monumental lie and a delusion. Buhari had built a solid reputation in public service from the mid-60s to the mid-80s as outlined above. Most of the voters in Nigeria and most parts of Africa and even advanced countries are not swayed by campaign slogans which you are obsessed with ad nauseam. In essence, the success of Buhari at the 2015 polls was more on his integrity than sloganeering. After all, how many voters read newspaper columns – even in advanced countries. Even if they do, it is not columns like yours that stand logic on its head. Yet, with a volcanic voice, my dear US college professor, you claim to profess logic.  
I know Dr Kperogi you have a tendency for insulting people who disagree with you. I am a young, patriotic Nigerian and I am ready for whatever barbs from you. You can sneer at my grammar in English but I do not give a hoot. After all, how many Japanese engineers can construct three correct sentences in English? Yet they are highly advanced technologically.  Life is not all about English grammar Dr Kperogi.  As Hausa will say “girmanka ya fadi Faruku” (Farooq, your status has fallen).
As for Muhammad Labbo, older people have told us that he is a journalist too and a quintessential reporter on the Nigerian Television Authority. As an academic, you need to be humble and consult people like him to learn the ropes of electronic journalism and possibly add value to your students in America. Not for you an arm-chair critic to criticize everybody that disagrees with you; discuss issues like logic which you do not know; and arrogantly pontificating as if you are the only grammarian. Sadly, you lack logic and you do not even know what is wrong and what is right. Learn from other Daily Trust columnists like Bala Muhammad,  Mohammed Haruna (now an electoral umpire), Dr Jibrin Ibrahim, Adamu Adamu (now Minister of Education) and Jideofor Adibe who do not insult anybody in their columns. Some readers, once in a while, disagree with them. But it does not reduce their status as great icons in the fourth estate of the realm.
My last word for you Dr Kperogi is: be sensible, logical, accurate, objective and learn to criticize constructively.

​Lying behind the lefe debates by Ari-J

Lying behind the leefe debates are realities both sides are avoiding either intentionally or unintentionally. I have tried to out together a few. 
1. There are ladies who allow men to sleep with them in single rooms yet won’t marry them because they’re poor. 
2. There are men who are not financially capable and can’t marry even when they are given a zero leefey policy, yet they’ll go ahead and propose to ladies, keep talking to them for a long time and eventually sleep with them. If asked, they’ll say it’s because leefey is expensive. 

(And this is popular amongst those who should know better) 
3. Some ladies want the leefey themselves yet are hiding behind ” it’s the parents”. 
4. There are men who can afford to marry per what they have today, yet have decided to wait till they build a mansion and buy a car. In the process, they’ll be fornicating. When asked, they’ll say leefey is expensive. 
5. There are parents who are fully aware that their daughters are fornicating, yet they’ll resist marriage proposals either due to poverty on the side of the man or their daughter is too “young” to marry. When the daughter eventually gets pregnant, they’ll give her off for free to avoid shame. 
6. There are parents who are fully aware that their sons are fornicating. In fact, they bring the ladies to the house. Yet when issues of marriage is raised, they’ll lament that their sons are too young to be married. 
7. There are men who don’t want to choose ladies from families they can easily marry from. When asked, they’ll say their swag level is low. However when asked to present leefey to maintain the swag, they’ll lament. 
8. There are those who are hiding behind “leefey is expensive” to justify their fornication. When they know they are where they are bcs they chose to date. 

My brother, kindly face your reality and let the lady go. 
9. There are parents who have married their daughters off to men who are zero on deen and eeman bcs they offered them expensive leefey. 
May Allah make affairs easy for us, grant us righteous spouses and make us equally righteous. Ameen.
