3 of 10 Nigerian Men Are Not The Fathers of Their Kids-DNA Expert


There is a shocking disclosure that Nigerian women have cheated and lied to their husbands on the paternity of their kids, because a DNA expert has dropped the bombshell that three of ten Nigerian men are not the real fathers of the kids their wives gave them!


A survey conducted by condom manufacturer, Durex, in which 29,000 people in 36 countries were interviewed has ranked Nigerian women as the most unfaithful in the world.

The following report will shock many Nigerian men who are the ignorant victims of unfaithful wives and girlfriends.

We have seen that there is serious need for it because in many homes things are happening that are scary both to the lives of children and their parents. And for the general statistics that is now available, it is found that three out of every ten men are not the fathers of their babies. Similarly, three out of every ten children are not fathered by men they have seen as their biological fathers. What we have found out is that, anytime we take ten men, at least three of them eventually found that they are not the fathers of the children they call their own. And these men would have taken care of the children for all their lives.

Now, the global statistics is 100, 000 out of every 300, 000 men. But what we have found that is that the situation is higher in Nigeria than other places. For example in our laboratory here, 50 per cent of the cases comes out negative. And we also realised that majority of the first-borns are affected. You only need to be here to see big men cry like little kids and watch children weep in agony. It has been that bad. And I dare say it is becoming something every home must do and you may be quite surprised at the level of dastard revelation.

About thirty per cent of fathers are unknowingly bringing up children who are not biologically theirs. And it is suspected that this percentage may be on the increase due to intimate recklessness. According to recent trends in intimate health, especially in Nigeria, it was suggested that unprotected sex and multiple partners are comparatively common occurrences with a large proportion of conceptions still unplanned. So, more than half, that is, 50 per cent of all paternity tests carried out by our lab comes out negative and the most affected are first-borns, except in a few cases.

Americans Against Mitt Romney Are Hypocrites and Idiots!


Romney is having problems with Liberals, because majority of American liberals are hypocrites like their poster boy President Barack Obama who has already traded his Holy Bible for the Qur'an. He is now the mouthpiece of defenders of Islam, a religion that lied that Jesus Christ never died on the cross and so never resurrected! Islam is a blasphemy against Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:12-19).

Any religion that does not accept the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the religion of the Antichrist. Only those who are ignorant of the origins of Islam will support and vote for an American presidential candidate who has become the apologist of Islamists after they attacked the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya and murdered the innocent Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and others. What Americans need is the real American President that will not be scared of Islamists, but make them pay for their crimes against humanity in America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and in my country Nigeria where they have killed over 10, 000 innocent Christians and beheaded their White hostages.

If we don't get rid of these devils, the devils will get rid of us.

Letter to Nigerian Parents
~ By Prof. Tunde
First published on Dec 14th, 11 06:21 pm.


Friends,
Let me add the benefit of my time as a student and then resident in the UK - and I live in Lagos now. The first thing that I discovered about UK-born, white, English undergraduates was that all of them did holiday or weekend job to support themselves - including the children of millionaires amongst them. It is the norm over there - regardless how wealthy their parents are. And I soon discovered that virtually all other foreign students did the same - the exception being those of us status-conscious Nigerians.

I also watched Richard Branson (owner of Virgin Airline) speaking on the Biography Channel and, to my amazement; he said that his young children travel in the economy class -even when the parents (he and his wife) are in upper class. Richard Branson is a billionaire in Pound Sterling. A quick survey would show you that only children from Nigeria fly business or upper class to commence their studies in the UK . No other foreign students do this. There is no aircraft attached to the office of the prime minister in the UK - he travels on BA. And the same goes for the Royals. The Queen does not have an aircraft for her exclusive use.

These practices simply become the culture which the next generation carries forward. Have you seen the car that Kate Middleton the lass married to Prince William drives? VW Golf or something close to it. But there's one core difference in them and us (generally speaking). They - the billionaires among them work for their money, we steal ours!

If we want our children to bring about the desired change we have been praying for on behalf of our dear country, then please, please let's begin now and teach them to work hard so that they can stand alone and most importantly be content, and not have to "steal". This seems to be the norm these days.

"30 is the new 18", which seems to be the new age for testing out the world in Nigeria now. That seems to be an unspoken but widely accepted mindset among the last 2 generations of parents in Nigeria .

At age 18 years, a typical young adult in the UK leaves the clutches of his/her parents for the University, chances are, that's the last time those parents will ever play "landlord" to their son or daughter except of course the occasional home visits during the academic year.

At 21 years and above or below, the now fully grown and independent minded adult graduates from University, searches for employment, gets a job and shares a flat with other young people on a journey into becoming fully fledged adults.

I can hear the echo of parents saying, well, that is because the UK economy is thriving, safe, well structured and jobs are everywhere? I beg to differ and I ask that you kindly hear me out. I am UK trained Recruitment Consultant and I have been practicing for the past 10 years in Nigeria . I have a broad range of experience from recruiting graduates to executive director level of large corporations. In addition, I talk from the point of view of someone with relatively privileged upbringing.

Driven to school every day, had my clothes washed for me, was barred from taking any part-time job during my A-levels so that I could concentrate on studying for my exams?! BUT, I got the opportunity to live apart from my parents from age 18 and the only time I came back home to stay was for 3 months before I got married!

Am I saying that every parent should wash their hands off their children at age 18? No, not at all, of course, I enjoyed the savings that I made from living on and off at my parent's house in London - indeed that is the primary reason for my being able to buy myself a 3 bedroom flat in London at age 25 with absolutely no direct financial help from my parents!

For me, pocket money stopped at age 22, not that it was ever enough for my lifestyle to compete with Paris Hilton's or Victoria Beckham's. Meanwhile today, we have Nigerian children who have never worked for 5 minutes in their lives insisting on flying "only" first or business class, carrying the latest Louis Vuitton ensemble, Victoria 's Secret underwear and wearing Jimmy Choo's, fully paid for by their "loving" parents.

I often get calls from anxious parents, my son graduated 2 years ago and is still looking for a job, can you please assist! Oh really! So where exactly this “child” is my usual question. Why are you the one making this call dad/mum?

I am yet to get a satisfactory answer, but between you and me, chances are that big boy is cruising around Lagos with a babe dressed to the nines, in his dad's spanking new SUV with enough "pocket money" to put your salary to shame. It is not at all strange to have a 28 year old who has NEVER worked for a day in his or her life in Nigeria but "earns" a six figure "salary" from parents for doing absolutely nothing.
I see them in my office once in a while, 26 years old with absolutely no skills to sell, apart from a shiny CV, written by his dad's secretary in the office. Of course, he has a driver at his beck and call and he is driven to the job interview. We have a fairly decent conversation and we get to the inevitable question - so, what salary are you looking to earn? Answer comes straight out - N250,000.00. I ask if that is per month or per annum.

Of course it is per month. Oh, why do you think you should be earning that much on your first job? Well, because my current pocket money is N200,000.00 and I feel that an employer should be able to pay me more than my parents. I try very hard to compose myself, over parenting is in my opinion the greatest evil handicapping the Nigerian youth. It is at the root of our national malaise.

We have a youth population of tens of millions of who are being "breastfed and diapered" well into their 30s. Even though the examples I have given above are from parents of considerable affluence, similar patterns can be observed from Abeokuta to Adamawa! Wake up mum! Wake up dad! You practically love your children to death! No wonder corruption continues to thrive. We have a society of young people who have been brought up to expect something for nothing, as if it were a birth right.

I want to encourage you to send your young men and women (anyone over 20 can hardly be called a child!) out into the world, maybe even consider reducing or stopping the pocket money to encourage them to think, explore and strive. Let them know that it is possible for them to succeed without your "help".

Take a moment to think back to your own time as a young man/woman, what if someone had kept spoon feeding you, would you be where you are today? No tree grows well under another tree, children that are not exposed to challenges, don't cook well. That is why you see adults complaining, "my parents didn't buy clothes for me this Christmas", ask him/her how old are you? 30 years +. Because of the challenges we faced in our youth, we are where and what we are today. This syndrome-my children will not suffer what I suffered is destroying our tomorrow.

Deliberately, reduce their allowance or mum-don't cook on Saturday till late afternoon or evening-do as occasion deserve.

I learnt the children of a former Nigerian head of state with all the stolen (billions) monies in their custody, still go about with security escort as wrecks. They are on drugs, several times because of the drug, they collapse in public places. The escort will quickly pack them and off they go, what a life! No one wants to marry them. Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.- Henry Ford. Hard work does not kill; everything in Nigeria is going down, including family settings. It is time to cook our children, preparing them for tomorrow. We are approaching the season in Nigeria where only the RUGGED, will survive. How will your ward fare?

If the present generation of Nigerian pilots retires, will you fly a plane flown by a young Nigerian pilot, If trained in Nigeria ? People now have first class, who cannot spell GRADUATE or read an article without bomb blast! Which Way Nigeria ?, Which Way Nigerians!! Is this how we will ALL sit and watch this country SINK....








American Muslims Arabic Appeal on 'Innocence of Muslims'



(WASHINGTON, D.C., 9/27/12) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today released a second video appeal in Arabic to those protesting an anti-Islam film "Innocence of Muslims."

[NOTE: This is the third in a planned series of such videos in various languages to be released by CAIR.]

In the CAIR video, Imam Dr. Syed Abu Abdullah of the Islamic Center of Cleveland tells Arabic-speaking viewers that the U.S. government does not support and did not authorize the film. The imam also says that Muslims should not fall into the "trap" set by the film's producers. (NOTE: The appeal was produced for CAIR by Take1Media of Cleveland, Ohio.)

Earlier this month, CAIR released a similar video appeal in Arabic. In it, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad tells viewers in the Middle East that ordinary Americans and the U.S. government should not be blamed for the religious hatred expressed in the film.

CAIR also released a video appeal in Yoruba, a language spoken by more than 20 million people, to those protesting the anti-Islam film in Nigeria and other parts of West Africa.

Pre Order Chinua Achebe's New Book There Was A Country on Biafra


CLICK HERE TO ORDER There Was A Country: A Personal History of Biafra.

Release Date: October 11, 2012

From the legendary author of Things Fall Apart comes a longawaited memoir about coming of age with a fragile new nation, then watching it torn asunder in a tragic civil war.

Review
Chinua Achebe's history of Biafra is a meditation on the condition of freedom. It has the tense narrative grip of the best fiction. It is also a revelatory entry into the intimate character of the writer's brilliant mind and bold spirit. Achebe has created here a new genre of literature -- Nadine Gordimer --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.


The defining experience of Chinua Achebe’s life was the Nigerian civil war, also known as the Biafran War, of 1967–1970. The conflict was infamous for its savage impact on the Biafran people, Chinua Achebe’s people, many of whom were starved to death after the Nigerian government blockaded their borders. By then, Chinua Achebe was already a world-renowned novelist, with a young family to protect. He took the Biafran side in the conflict and served his government as a roving cultural ambassador, from which vantage he absorbed the war’s full horror. Immediately after, Achebe took refuge in an academic post in the United States, and for more than forty years he has maintained a considered silence on the events of those terrible years, addressing them only obliquely through his poetry. Now, decades in the making, comes a towering reckoning with one of modern Africa’s most fateful events, from a writer whose words and courage have left an enduring stamp on world literature.

Achebe masterfully relates his experience, bothas he lived it and how he has come to understand it. He begins his story with Nigeria’s birth pangs and the story of his own upbringing as a man and as a writer so that we might come to understand the country’s promise, which turned to horror when the hot winds of hatred began to stir. To read There Was a Country is to be powerfully reminded that artists have a particular obligation, especially during a time of war. All writers, Achebe argues, should be committed writers—they should speak for their history, their beliefs, and their people.

Marrying history and memoir, poetry and prose, There Was a Country is a distillation of vivid firsthand observation and forty years of research and reflection. Wise, humane, and authoritative, it will stand as definitive and reinforce Achebe’s place as one of the most vital literary and moral voices of our age.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER There Was A Country: A Personal History of Biafra.

About the Author


Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. He has published novels, short stories, essays, and children’s books. His volume of poetry Christmas in Biafra was the joint winner of the first Commonwealth Poetry Prize. Of his novels, Arrow of God won the New Statesman-Jock Campbell Award, and Anthills of the Savannah was a finalist for the 1987 Booker Prize. Things Fall Apart, Achebe’s masterpiece, has been published in fifty different languages and has sold more than ten million copies internationally since its first publication in 1958. Achebe is the recipient of the Nigerian National Merit Award, Nigeria’s highest award for intellectual achievement. In 2007, he won the Man Booker International Prize.

When Hollywood Photography Is An Imitation Of Art


As an artist and a writer since my childhood as an art prodigy, I have been fascinated by the artistry and imagery in the geometry and symmetry of creation I always see on earth. National Geographic has captured some of the most spectacular images of the earth; people, places, events, etc.

I have seen the best of naturalism and impressionism in Art Histry before I chose impressionism and had the opportunity to be exhibited internationally in Japan when I was only 20 and had my illustrations used by Johns Hopkins University's Communication Center when I was 21 and 1 million copies of my life drawings for family planning booklets were distributed all over Nigeria in Pidgin English, Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa languages and I also produced more for PATH in Seattle, Washington, when I was 22 and produced more on nomadic education for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) when I was 26 after working as a UNICEF program consultant at 25 and curated the first ever Arts Against AIDS national exhibitions at the National Museum and National Theatre in Lagos when I was 30. I had a solo exhibition hosted by the Nigerian Queen of Models Yemi Fawaz in 1994 before I abandoned Art to concentrate my genius on Literature, drama and TV/Film productions.

My interest in Fine Art was rekindled recently when I saw the photographs of Hollywood divas Scarlett Johansson, Kiera Knightley and Miley Cyrus Unclad poses and was struck by their imitation of classical nude paintings.

I have been awed by the Vanity Fair magazine cover photograph of Scarlett Johansson and Kiera Knightley posing for designer Tom Ford, because it could pass for a masterpiece of classical nude paintings of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (July 15, 1606 ?October 4, 1669). Like Rembrandt’s Andromeda, Susanna, Diana and her Nymphs, Danaë, Bathsheba and others. In fact, the semi semi nude photograph of Miley Cyrus is a complete imitation of classical painting.

I can post the photograph of Miley Cyrus here, but that of the my muses Scarlett Johansson and Kiera Knightley in the nude cannot be posted here. You can see it and the video on classical nude paintings on

Rihanna’s Occultist Tattoo of Goddess Isis is Evil

'Always in and on my heart': Rihanna honours late grandmother with tattoo of Goddess Isis spanning across her ribcage. This is Rihanna's 19th tattoo.


Rihanna’s Occultist Tattoo of Isis is Evil

Why would super Pop star Rihanna choose to honour her late grandmother with the cultist tattoo of the Egyptian goddess Isis also known in Ancient Greek as Ἶσις?
Only those who are members of the Cult of Isis bear this mark and other similar symbols of the goddess.

No matter the excuses and pretensions of her ignorance, Rihanna cannot live in denial of the truth of the symbolism of this evil tattoo of Egyptian occultism and idolatry.

According to history:
The cult of Isis was popular throughout Egypt, but her most important temples were at Behbeit El-Hagar in the Nile delta, and, beginning in the reign with Nectanebo I (380–362 BCE), on the island of Philae in Upper Egypt.

In the typical form of her myth, Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the Sky, and she was born on the fourth intercalary day. She married her brother, Osiris, and she conceived Horus by him. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered by Set. Using her magical skills, she restored his body to life after having gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set.

This myth became very important during the Greco-Roman period. For example it was believed that the Nile River flooded every year because of the tears of sorrow which Isis wept for Osiris. Osiris's death and rebirth was relived each year through rituals. The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era.
Most Egyptian deities were first worshipped by very local cults, and they retained those local centres of worship even as their popularity spread, so that most major cities and towns in Egypt were known as the home of a particular deity. The origins of the cult of Isis are uncertain, but it is believed that she was originally an independent and popular deity in predynastic times, prior to 3100 BCE, at Sebennytos in the Nile delta.











Oando Foundation Launches Effort to Transform African Education

Oando Foundation Launches Effort to Transform African Education at 2012 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting

NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Oando Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Oando PLC, one of Africa's leading indigenous energy solutions providers – is attending the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting this week to emphasize the urgent need to transform education in Nigeria and across the African continent. The Foundation is calling on government, business and donor organizations to make the investments necessary for Nigeria to meet the Millennium Development Goals to achieve universal primary education and lower poverty rates.

Established in 2005 by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, CGI convenes a community of global leaders to address the world's most pressing challenges and forge solutions. The Oando Foundation is a CGI member and for the first time will pledge a Commitment to Action to address the urgent need for sustainable development across Nigeria's education sector. As Africa's most populous nation, this commitment promises to transform education for more than 60,000 children in 100 public primary schools by 2015.

"We know that knowledge is the bedrock of world-class aspirations," said Wale Tinubu, Group Chief Executive of Oando PLC. "To ensure future generations of Africans can compete on the global stage, we need to ensure excellence at every point in the education experience."

There Are Over 60 Million Generators in Nigeria


"Currently, there are about 60 million generators in Nigeria at the ratio of one per household of 2.5 people with an annual spending of N1.6 trillion."

~ Dr. Kabir Usman, Director-General of Centre for Management Development.

Dr Usman further said that the presence of the too many generators has caused many deaths in the nation as a result of carbon monoxide emission.

He revealed that the Nigeria's highly inadequate supply of electricity adds 40 per cent to the cost of goods produced in the country. According to him, "the situation has compelled many industries to either shut down or relocate to neighbouring countries."

He also said that the poorest Nigerians paid more than N80/kwh burning candles, kerosene and firewood while manufacturers paid between N45 and N60/kwh on diesel to run their generators.

David Disiere Southlake Aviation Awarded $32-Million Damages in Congo Gold Smuggling Case

DALLAS, Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a civil trial that sounded like a real life James Bond spy novel, a Dallas County Jury awarded Southlake Aviation, owned by Dallas business executive David Disiere, $32.4 million in damages against Houston based oil company, CAMAC International, its subsidiary CAMAC Aviation, and Mickey Lawal CAMAC's Vice President of African Operations.

The case stemmed from a scheme in which CAMAC International and its officers used a Gulfstream V jet leased from David Disiere's Southlake Aviation to try to spirit more than ten thousands pounds of gold bullion out of the Democratic Republic of the Congo with help from General Bosco Ntaganda, a notorious Congolese warlord.

Following the verdict, Southlake Aviation's President, David Disiere praised the jury's decision, "twelve citizens saw through a smoke-and- mirrors defense put on by the CAMAC's attorneys and clearly found that CAMAC caused my company to loose a $43 million dollar aircraft in a greedy scheme that violated the U.S. Trading With The Enemy Act."

The jury heard riveting testimony from a diamond trader involved in the scheme describing how CAMAC executives Kase Lawal, Mickey Lawal, and Kamoru Lawal arranged to exchange two-oversized suitcases stuffed with six-and-half million dollars in cash for ten boxes of gold delivered by General Bosco Ntaganda's armed forces.

An investigation of the smuggling incident by the United Nations Security Council found that CAMAC and its three top executives, Kase Lawal, Mickey Lawal, and Kamoru Lawal were dealing with "individuals operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and committing serious violations of international law involving the targeting of children or women in situations of armed conflict."

Kase Lawal, Mickey Lawal, and Kamoru Lawal who are Nigerian American brothers invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination hundreds of times during their testimony in the case.

Houston energy executive, Kase Lawal the former CEO of CAMAC International and the current CEO of the publically traded CAMAC Energy Inc. was appointed to a White House Trade Advisory position by President Obama and serves on the boards of the Houston Port and Airport Authorities.

David Disiere, the Dallas business executive and owner of Southlake Aviation, told the jury how he was shocked to get a call in the dead of night informing him that his company's 43-million dollar Gulfstream V jet aircraft loaded with ten boxes of gold had been confiscated in Goma by authorities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on February 5, 2011. The jury's verdict also included compensation of more than 535-thousand dollars for repairing damage done the to the aircraft's interior passenger compartment during the loading of the gold.

Because Southlake Aviation's aircraft was confiscated in the Congo, VFS Financing a subsidiary of General Electric, automatically placed Southlake Aviation's loan to purchase the Gulfstream V in default, accelerated the entire balance, and repossessed the aircraft.

Testimony in the case and the investigation by the United Nations also indicated that former Houston Rocket's basketball star Dikembe Mutombo acted as an intermediary in the gold smuggling scheme.

Testimony in the case showed that David Disiere had never met the Lawal brothers. Disiere testified that CAMAC had signed a three-year lease for Southlake's Gulfstream V jet and claiming it would use the jet was to travel between its Houston headquarters and oil operations in Nigeria.

The jury agreed with David Disiere's testimony that CAMAC and its officers violated the terms of the aircraft's lease by using it in an outlaw region of Africa.
