What is God's reason for allowing me to see the last day of 2015?

Read President Buhari's New year message to Nigerians

Read below...
Welcome to the beginning of a New Year of the continuation of CHANGE in our beloved nation. I am aware that Nigerians have experienced a number of significant hardships over the past months. Living in the State House has not alienated me from your daily sufferings. I am aware of the lengthy queues at fuel stations and of the difficulties businesses have faced in acquiring foreign exchange.
These challenges are only temporary; we are working to make things better. When I presented myself to you as a presidential candidate and asked you to vote for me, I wanted to be a leader who keeps his promises. I wanted to be a leader who restores the people's hope in those elected to serve them. I wanted to be a leader who initiates positive and enduring CHANGE.

I am still totally committed to being that kind of leader. Unforeseen circumstances and other distractions notwithstanding, I shall still do my utmost best to keep every promise I made to Nigerians during my election campaig…

Photo: Rwandan pastor sentenced to life imprisonment for genocide crimes

A Rwandan pastor accused of leading and coordinating attacks on minority Tutsis during Rwanda's 1994 genocide has been jailed for life, Rwanda's high court said on Wednesday, December 30.

An estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed by dominant Hutu forces in the genocide in 100 days.

Jean Uwinkindi,64, who once led the Kayenzi Pentecostal church in the rural outskirts of the capital Kigali, was convicted of crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity committed during the slaughter.
"The court finds that there were killings of the Tutsi at Rwankeri and Kanzenze hills and that the attacks were led by Uwinkindi," said Judge Kanyegeri Timothee.Uwinkindi was arrested in Uganda in 2010 and the following year his case was referred from the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, in Tanzania, to the Rwandan national court system. It was the first such referral. The pastor said he plans to appeal.

See The 6 Foods That Are Killing Your Séx Drive | No. 3 Will Shock You!!

You aren’t in the mood for s*x some nights. Expectedly, you blame stress, fatigue, a lack of sleep, but the secret behind your libido’s loss is perhaps hidden in your plate of food. Since both testosterone and oestrogen play a critical role in the bodies of men and women, an imbalance can either amp up or diminish your s*x drive. Research shows that certain foods can significantly impact your hormonal levels. So, look before you eat. Here are six foods you should avoid if you want the libido to simmer: 1. Alcohol According to researchers, alcohol is a downer and can affect a man’s ability to maintain his erection. Since it affects both s.exes, women, you too need to take it slow. While all alcohol affects the liver’s ability to get rid of excess oestrogen, beer is rich in phytoestrogens. Its plant-derived oestrogen directly affects fertility. 2. Sugar High levels of sugar in your bloodstream can adversely affect the gene that controls your se.x hormones. Simple sugars, such as glucose and f…

PDP's Strategy Before 2019 General Elections

Editor’s note:The PDP are getting used to their status as the main opposition strength in the country after losing the 2015 general elections to their main opponents, the APC. , a Lagos-based blogger and a commentator on social and political issues, fleshes out a strategy for the PDP to gain its footing an return to prominence in the upcoming 2019 elections. The massive loss the PDP suffered certainly did not come as surprise to most Nigerians and political analysts because of the magnitude of the APC’s campaign and tenacity to wrestle powers from Goodluck Jonathan. The PDP, since its birth in 1998 had held on to power for 16 years, starting from the eight-year administration of Obasanjo/Atiku, three years of Yar’Adua/Jonathan, and five years of Jonathan/Sambo. The funny thing is that well over 75% of the same set of people who made up the 16 years of the PDP are now in the new ruling APC. Zoning arrangementThe arrangement of the PDP was to rotate power between the North and…
