A wife says no to sex. What the husband did will stun you and make you laugh

nice wifeSuch a situation most likely happens in every home time to time. A man gets back from work, at night he and his wife get to bed and then he hears her say those “magic” words: “I don’t feel like it, I just want you to hold me.”
If that sounds like a familiar story, there is a great solution for it. This man has found a very persuasive argument for his wife. Surely every lady needs her husband to meet her needs and to love her regardless of her performance in bed.
However, there is the other side of the medal and men deserve to be well treated by women with their sexual needs met. So, when your lady tells you the next time these words:
“You’re just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man.”
“I don’t feel like it, I just want you to hold me.”
shopping wife
She just stopped and stared at him right there with her ajar. Then he added:
“Really honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You’re just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman. Why can’t you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?”
sex wiyh wife
I guess you get the meaning of this tale. Our needs are important, but we should also regard the needs of the other person next to us, of our significant other. This story is funny, but there is much we can learn from it.

EXCLUSIVE: Stella Oduah, other lawmakers exchange blows during PDP Caucus meeting

Stella Oduah
Fighting broke out among members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in the National Assembly on Monday over their party’s ongoing congresses across the country, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report today.
Godswill Akpabio, the Minority Leader of the Senate, convened the emergency meeting of the party’s National Assembly Caucus to address numerous complaints that arose from the party’s nationwide congresses, some of which were marred by irregularities and legal battles.
Sources told PREMIUM TIMES that the meeting was held to address the crises in seven of the 36 state chapters where the congresses turned out to be most problematic.
Halfway into the meeting, which held behind closed doors in House Room 0.28 at 4:30 p.m., a brawl erupted between a former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, now senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, and Sopuluchukwu Ezeonwuka, a House member from Orumba North/South federal constituency in Anambra State.
The disagreement among the lawmakers was over membership of a committee the Caucus decided to set up to proffer solutions to the stalemate in the state congresses ahead of the party’s national convention.
Also involved in the face-off were Lynda Ikpeazu, who represents Onitsha North/South federal constituency, and Chukwuka Onyema, Deputy Minority Leader of the House, sources said.
Some sources said there were actual exchange of blows by the feuding legislators while some said the four lawmakers merely exchanged verbal assaults for the most part of the meeting, with Mr. Onyema charging towards Mr. Ezeonwuka to land a slap on his face.
“Mr. Onyema ran towards Mr. Ezeonwuka and attempted to punch him in the face,” a source said. “But other lawmakers quickly intervened and separated the two men from manhandling each other.”
PREMIUM TIMES’ findings revealed the lawmakers were trying to maintain their individual strongholds of their party in their respective constituencies.
Mr. Ezeonwuka confirmed the development to PREMIUM TIMES on Monday night.
Mr. Ezeonwuka said the argument started after he objected to Mr. Onyema’s membership of a committee, saying he “cannot be a judge in his own case.”
Mr. Ezeonwuka said Mr. Onyema had been repeatedly used by Ms. Oduah to manipulate elections within the party.
“Onyema is the one that implemented all the Stella Oduah’s plans because he sees Stella Oduah as his God,” Mr. Ezeonwuka said. “But I told him that he’s an interested party and must not be a member of the committee.”
“It was that time that Stella Oduah now stood up and said ‘who is that idiot?’”
Mr. Ezeonwuka said Mr. Onyema charged towards him from the wooden rostrum to beat him in defence of Ms. Oduah.
“He wanted to shout me down, but I told him I won’t shut up. Then he came down from the podium that he wanted to come and beat me, but I was just looking at him,” Mr. Ezeonwuka said.
Mr. Ezeonwuka said Ms. Oduah is desperate because she’s “a weak politician.”
“She’s now desperate because of her weakness and coming to Anambra State to talk nonsense. Is it because she was made a minister?”
“I have been in the PDP since 1999 and I am a grassroots politician, unlike Stella Oduah who started her politics in Abuja. She has no structure in Anambra State, she’s just using her money to buy people, which is irrelevant to me.”
“When Ms. Ikpeazu was trying to expatiate on the point I made, Stella Oduah started insulting her and they both starting insulting each other, you know women talk.”
Mr. Ezeonwuka also told PREMIUM TIMES that the Caucus did not discuss anything about fuel price crisis, consequently punching holes in the claim made by House Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, that the members discussed and concluded that President Buhari’s administration must apologise to former President Jonathan because Mr. Buhari was part of those who opposed subsidy when Mr. Jonathan first attempted to deregulate the downstream sector in 2012.
“We only discussed the party’s upcoming national convention and no issues about fuel crisis were raised during the meeting,” Mr. Ezeonwuka said.
Ms. Oduah also confirmed her fight with the other lawmakers to PREMIUM TIMES, but denied it was a serious altercation.
“Two people just disagreed on a subject, does that make it strange? In a meeting where you have almost two hundred people?
“Somebody raised an opinion that I did not agree with. And it is bound to happen where you’re having meeting of this sort.
“We just disagreed on a subject matter which I cannot disclose to you,” Ms. Oduah said.
In his reaction, Mr. Onyema said Mr. Ezeonwuka was not in the country when the congresses were conducted, so he couldn’t have known all that transpired (at the acrimonious congress).
“I did not have any brawl with him. But The said they wanted primaries and the other group said they don’t want primaries and they went ahead to conduct their own illegal primaries,
“He wasn’t in the country, he went to the United States and just got back, he should have allowed those of us who have been on ground to explain to him what happened instead of going about making false accusations that somebody forged the results.”
When PREMIUM TIMES reached Ms. Ikpeazu, she denied knowledge of the brawl, claiming she was working on some documents while the meeting was going on.
“I had some urgent documents that I am working on so I wasn’t listening,” Ms. Ikpeazu said. “I know they had some disagreement but I don’t know those involved.”
But this newspaper established clearly that she was part of the entire commotion at the meeting, and was merely being economical with the truth.

‘Why you should not eat apples at night’

Mrs Opeoluwa Olufeko, the Managing Director of Pino Degrees Nigeria Ltd, a herbal medicine outfit based in the UK, has cautioned the public against eating of apples at nights.
Olufeko told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Lagos that it could cause heartburns.
She also said that it was wrong to eat apples at any time of the day.
“Most people do not know that the best time to eat apples is early in the mornings and in the afternoons because at night, it can cause heartburns.
“Eating of apples is really not good at nights because you wake up in the morning feeling very lazy; and probably feeling like you did not really have any sleep throughout the night.
“What I am saying in essence is that nature has a way of dealing with our body and we should know what to eat and at what time,” she said.
Olufeko, who is advocating for a stronger regulation of traditional medicine practice in Nigeria, said there were a lot of remedies in herbs and fruits we eat but depending on when we take and eat them.
According to the expert, Nigerians should appreciate what nature has given to them in terms of herbs and fruits.
Olufeko said, “There is what is called neem powder. It is got from the dogoyaro tree and it can be used to treat any kinds of ailments.
“Get the `dogoyaro’ leaf, dry it and grind it into a powdery substance and add coconut oil to it, then apply it on your body or any skin irritation for some days and you will see the results.

“We do not have a stable body that covers us, because of this, there is a lot of constraint on us, and people do not really regard herbs because they feel it is herbal medicine.

“Notwithstanding, we are pushing ahead and Nigeria is getting there hoping that the present administration will look into this aspect,” she said.

OUCHI!! TB Joshua named in Ghana armed robbery arrest

Tawia Acheampong, a freelance journalist based in Accra, Ghana,wrote this Read below…
A shocking new twist has emerged in the tale of the armed robber who was re-arrested in Ghana on Monday 16th May 2016 after controversially absconding under police guard. According to a Facebook post by popular Nigerian ‘Prophet’ T.B. Joshua, the detainment of the notorious suspect in his hometown of Kwetri-Adentia had surprisingly ‘spiritual’ undertones.
Kweku Yeboah, the alleged leader of a brutal robbery attack near Sunyani, Ghana on Monday 2nd May 2016, escaped from police custody several days later whilst being nursed at a hospital for injuries he sustained during the incident.
With the suspect on the loose and fear rife in the community, the policeman under whose watch Yeboah escaped was instantly implicated and given a ten-day ultimatum to produce him or face disciplinary action.
According to Joshua’s Facebook page, the policeman in question decided to seek ‘Divine intervention’ by visiting Joshua’s church after six days of frantic searching had elapsed without any sign of success. “I had a suspect escape from my custody in the hospital when I was detailed to guide him,” Constable Edwin Akpalu is seen narrating in an accompanying video uploaded to Facebook, adding that he faced expulsion from the police and a probable prison sentence.
The police man vividly detailed how Yeboah, who escaped from the handcuffs which were tied to his hospital bed, covered himself with a white bed sheet whilst fleeing in the dead of night. Akpalu had attempted to shoot the suspect as he was running hurriedly away but held back as a nurse was moving along the same corridor, fearing he might kill an innocent health official.
“Some friends advised me to go for black magic, which I was contemplating,” the constable admitted as days passed without any signs of Yeboah’s recapture. “I told my dad about the issue. He told me I should not go and kneel down to any black power because God is the final authority, that I should come to The SCOAN to see Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua and whatever he says is final.”
According to the Facebook post, Joshua sent a message to the embattled constable, assuring him that the suspect would be apprehended as he had been ‘chained spiritually’, proceeding to cover his transport costs with a gift of $1,000. Akpalu collapsed on the floor upon hearing Joshua’s pronouncement. “Thank you Prophet T.B. Joshua for vindicating me, or else four days from now, I would be in jail,” he tearfully acknowledged.
The re-arrest of Yeboah is seen as a confirmation of Joshua’s ‘prophecy’. It comes on the heels of the cleric’s prediction of an impending terrorist attack in Ghana which made headline news across the country last month.

27-year-old man stabs twin brother to death in Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the case of a 27-year-old man, Mfom John, who stabbed his twin brother, Israel John, to death on Olorunkemi Street in the Somolu area of the state.
Mfom was reported to have stabbed the victim more than 70 times in different parts of his body on Monday.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, who confirmed the incident, told the Punch that, “The suspect stabbed the victim to death while sleeping at about 6.30am on Olorunkemi Street, Bariga.
“The case has been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, SDCI, Yaba.
“The corpse of the victim has been deposited at the Mainland General Hospital morgue,” the PPRO noted.
Although no one could state the immediate cause of the incident, relatives and residents alleged that the suspect had always threatened to kill his twin brother whenever they had disagreements.
The Akwa Ibom State indigene reportedly stabbed his brother in the neck, head, armpit and stomach till he died, after which he fled to Ogunbadejo, a neighbouring street, to report to an uncle that his brother had sustained serious injuries during a fight.
The twin elder brother, Christopher, following interrogation, reportedly pointed out the culprit (Mfom) to the police, which led to his arrest.
He said he was in the kitchen while his brothers were in the room.
“I was roasting groundnut in the kitchen when Mfom killed our brother.
“I never knew what happened until I went into the room and saw Israel in the pool of his blood.”
But residents said Christopher might know more about the death because the suspect had told him he would ensure his brother did not go to work that morning.
A relative, who did not identify herself, said after killing his brother, the suspect went to his uncle’s house, where she also stays, to report the incident.
She explained that Mfom was panicky, as he tried not to indict himself, adding that she thought it was their usual fight.
“We asked him what happened, he just said there was a fight in the house and his brother had been injured. As we approached the house, we saw two police vans. The policemen brought out a body that was covered with wrapper.
“That was when Christopher told the police that it was Mfom who killed his brother. The police then arrested him,” she said, adding that Mfom was overbearing, while Israel was quiet and always at the receiving end of his brother’s cruelty.

I regret not privatising NNPC – Obasanjo

President Olusegun Obasanjo
Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, said he regretted not privatising the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, during his eight years in office.
The former president, while speaking in Lagos yesterday at the opening of a two-day maritime conference, said the Federal Government should allow the organised private sector play a critical role in repositioning the nation’s moribund assets and infrastructure.
Obasanjo said past experience in Nigeria has shown that the private sector will always make a meaningfully contribution to the sustainable growth and development of the nation when given the opportunity.
While pointing out that the organised private sector had aided and stabilized the nation’s telecommunications industry by creating jobs and paying money to the government on a sustainable basis, he regretted not privatising the NNPC.
He said, “NNPC is supposed to be doing well like Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG).
“The involvement of the private sector will ensure growth.”
Obasanjo noted that NLNG is doing well because of the involvement of the private sector.
He said, “The NLNG is making money for the government because of the involvement of the private sector.”
Obasanjo added that Nigeria’s maritime sector had not made much impact because of lack of transparency.
He said, “A General once left this country with two ships. He later came back with no accountability.
“That cannot happen in the private sector.”
Obasanjo, who was chairman of the event tagged “Building a sustainable maritime industry in Nigeria,” noted that corruption was one of the factors hindering growth and development of the nation.
He further disclosed that he met five ships while he took over as head of state and later bought 19 more before leaving office in 1979, but added that, “20 years after and in 1999, there was no ship left.”
He said while one of the ships was sold as a scrap for $500,000, “government later bought the same ship for $2 million. It was repaired for $1million.
“It was later seized for not being sea worthy, I was informed. We were asked to pay $2 million.
“I told them to keep the ship. It was later released (without any payment).”
Obasanjo said over 90 per cent of global trade is carried out via the sea, noting that “this underscores the fact that a sustainable maritime industry has direct impact on the economy of the nation and also determines the competitiveness of its export.”
He said, “The private sector should be encouraged to take the driving seat in the development architecture of the Nigerian maritime industry.
“Hopefully, this will bring about the desired efficiency in the management of the project and sustained funding.
“Nigeria should look beyond its national maritime sector as an economic hub for the country but should by now be consolidating its position as the regional and global force in the maritime domain,” he said.

Buhari to sack Amaechi

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to relieve all former governors in his cabinet of their duties and appoint technocrats to run his change agenda if wants to succeed in attracting foreign investment into the country.
Ex-Governors in President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet include Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi as well as Kayode Fayemi.
CNPP gave the advice in a statement issued in Abuja, which was signed by its Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu.
According to the CNPP, unless the former governors serving in his cabinet were removed, the image of the regime will remain tainted with corruption, his anti graft war not withstanding.
CNPP recalled that some of the former state executives left their states with empty treasury, leading to the bailout loan by the Buhari administration just to enable them pay salary arrears of their workforce.
“For President Muhammadu Bujhari to succeed in his change agenda, all former governors in his cabinet must be sacked to create room for technocrats to run his government if he must succeed.
“Some former governors serving in this government not only left their respective states with empty treasury but also in heavy debts such that it took Mr President’s bailout fund for salary arrears of state workers to be paid.
“The states were so indebted that fillers from the state indicate that the bailout fund was not enough to clear salary arrears in some states.
“It is imperative that Mr President relieves the former governors of their positions and appoint technocrats to give the administration a fresh face as their presence in the government has left it tainted with corruption.”
The statement also reminded President Buhari that foreign investors he was labouring to attract will not come as most of them had the records of some of the former governors that ran their states aground.
“It will amount to effort in futility for the President to be labouring to attract investors as they will not entrust their hard-earned resources to well known bad managers.
“This is the reason the Buhari government will be one year next month, yet the regime has nothing to show for it except hardship and more hardship across the country despite the change mantra”, the statement read.
