With the 2015 elections results trickling to INEC Headquarters, millions of Nigerian had a sigh of relief after the Orubebe dramatics that suspended the breath of the nation at the brink of a major catastrophe that left many beginning to believe the doomsday prediction of the Americans of Nigeria disintegrating that very year.

The singular act of unprecedented patriotism exhibited by Jonathan to congratulate Buhari even before the result of the last state was announced had indeed saved Nigeria from plunging into an apparent civil war.

Many of us thanked God for accepting our prayers and making our votes count as we look forward to our own LEE KWAN YEW in the making.

Lee Kwan Yu, had been the father of modern Singapore as he lifted her up from the bottom rung of the third world to the coveted class of the first world.

Seventy years ago, Singaporeans doesn’t have water system toilets and their per capita was among the lowest in the world.

Today we are looking at a country that doesn’t have any natural resources but becomes one of the leading financial centers in the world.

Thanks to Lee Kwan YEW who made it possible using three simple policies abbreviated as MPH. MPH stands for Meritocracy, Pragmatism and Honesty. How does it work?

Meritocracy as applied by Lee Kwan YEW simply means that in order to any nation on the path of development, the strict rule of making sure that only the best people rule, is cardinal. Nepotism has no place in a meritocratic rule but it has taken root in our nation.

Buhari’s first mistake was his failure to change this ugly habit that permeates every facet of our lives. His second cabinet appointment has been the worst seen in the political history of our nation.

Beside bloating the figures of nominees to a record in history, there isn’t a single person appointed on merit alone. Some are septuagenarians that are taken out of retirement with nothing to show in their past to demonstrate selflessness or patriotism.

They are spent force concerned only with maintaining the status quo that gave them undue advantages.

The second cardinal principle in governance towards development according to Lee Kwan YEW is pragmatism. To him pragmatism is akin to two cats, one black and the other white, but their color should not be the yardstick for you to take them into your house, rather their ability in catching a rat. Whichever performs better, is the one you adopt, period.

This kind of pragmatism is a million miles away from Nigeria’s way of doing things. We are a people that always brandish zoning system when it comes to vying for the presidency.

The North and South divide has become a second skin to us, and even in our states you easily hear the clamor that some parts had been producing governor it is now our turn. Our own Lee Kwan Yu has also failed in that regard.

FOROFFICE

Thirdly, Lee Kwan YEW said the remaining pillar in the tripod for development is Honesty. When he announced his cabinet, the first person Lee Kwan Yu sent to jail was his minister, simply because he went on an official trip with a business man who paid for some of his expenses.

On returning to the country, the minister was arrested at the airport and when he asked Lee Kwan Yu what was his crime, he told him by accepting the gratification from the business man he has opened way for corruption. Corruption is the cancer in developing nations and it has been killing us slowly but steadily.

Our expected Lee Kwan Yu also failed, and woefully at that, in punishing corruption. For two years the case of former SGF dragged, even after being indicted by a presidential panel. With all the billions of corrupt money the government has been seizing not a single person was behind bars.

The Chief of staff was accused on a live television program for weeks on corruption besides the rumors of accepting bribes from some multi-national companies, instead he seems to be waxing stronger in the corridors of power.

If our candidate has failed in each of the three cardinal principle, tested, trusted and delivered by Lee Kwan YEW in uplifting Singapore from the third to the first world…do we have any hope? I think we have no choice but to be PRAGMATIC and tell ourselves HONEST truth and stop deluding ourselves that we should continue to hope our Lee Kwan YEW is going to come in our lifetime through MERITOCRACY. Bye, adios, ciao…sai watarana MPH.

Are Ugly Ladies More Faithful To Their Men?

Published

on

Geekbuying WW

Hi esteemed readers! Hope we are keeping safe? Please don’t forget our face masks, if we must go out. I must use this medium to appreciate you for your contributions to this column.

Redmagic WW

It has been overwhelming for me; it is also humbling. Know this please, you are appreciated. Like Tuface Idibia says, ”without you, there will be no me.”

Shop Polaris RU

Today’s piece is about who is more prone to stick to her man no matter what. The one that will be there for her man 24/7; you get? I ask, does it or should it have anything to do with a lady’s physical looks? You will recall that the Holy Bible tells us that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made, meaning that in an ideal situation, nobody, especially a woman is expected to be ugly.

Shopping Live

You must also agree with me that a man’s beauty should not be measured by his physical appearance! I feel it should be measured by the beauty of his purse; oh sorry, his fat account; no, I mean his pocket.

Topshoptv UA

Back to my female counterparts, in my opinion, I don’t feel there are ugly women. What I know is that there are women who have stubbornly refused to update their looks.

The white men call them “plain Janes” ugly Bettys’ and so forth. There are women who have refused to make heads turn in their direction. Comedian Basket Mouth once joked about “ugly girls, being more faithful to their men”.

He said if you want a long lasting relationship, you should ”stick to an ugly girl”! He added that when you date a pretty lady, that there is huge risk of her cheating on you and you will have very little control over her because if you query her outings she will be quick to opt out. But the ugly lady, ”for fear of being dumped by you, will do your every bidding”.

Growfood

Dear Basket Mouth, I love you and your shows, your jokes but on this one, I completely disagree with you. I would like to remind the men that they are wired by sight; having said that I feel it will be fool hardy for a man to want to settle for a lady based on her ‘’ugly look”.

Being loyal to your man is not measured only by your physical appearance. A lot goes into a relationship. A whole lot! Women, as I have consistently said on this page, are wired by thoughts and words.

How well do you really touch your woman? Remember Dolly Parton’s ”Touch your woman; everything is gonna be okay”

Simple-dress WW

Touch your woman,

Let me know oh oh,

Let me know oh oh,

Everything is alright.

FOROFFICE

A woman needs helping hands, needs somebody to understand her. Two things are basic to keep us women glued to you like white on rice, and that is the man’s touch and his words. Know what to say and say the right things to her. Know where to touch, oh, let me sneak in this third one.

Women love men that listen. Yes, good listeners for that matter. Not the man that yawns, when you are telling him how horrible your day went.

Ugly ladies can cheat on a man as often as pretty babe does, especially when you make her feel like you are doing her a favour by dating her. Believe me; the moment another guy shows her little attention, she will be gone before you know it!

How do you explain a very pretty lady dating an ugly guy? It is because of the way he treats her. I once knew of Kate, (not real name).

She was always seen with this guy; a lot of people could not understand what Kate saw in him. Reason: ”Kate was dropped dead gorgeous, while her man was ugly, to put it mildly. Was it money? Far from it! In fact it was Kate that was spending on him. But she confided that it was the way he made love to her.

She claimed that he was thorough. She also claimed that he was so thorough that he would kiss her right from her forehead to her ears, eyes, nose, chin, neck. Take note that most women love it when kisses are planted on their necks, everywhere to even her toes.

Yes, he did all that for her. And that was why she dated no other fellow even when every other guy attempted to date her! She claimed back then that he was her bus stop!

Basket Mouth in his joke also said if you leave an ugly lady alone for months on end, you can be rest assured that you will come back and meet her the same way you left her.

Believe me Basket Mouth, if you don’t treat her well, whether ugly or beautiful, she will dump you so fast you won’t know what hit you.

So, my submission is, whether a lady is ugly or not, her been faithful lies a great deal with how her man treats her.
