A relationship expert, Rosetta Ibegbu, has advanced reasons why men must have sex at least 20 times in 30 days.
The expert advanced the reasons at the unveiling of a book, titled: Budding Lily,” written by Atinuke Adepoju.
Ibegbu at the book launch on May 1, 2018, said sex at least 20 times in a month helps to keep prostrate cancer away.
At the book launch at the Kudirat Initiative for Democracy Secretariat, Moshood Abiola Crescent, Ikeja, Lagos, Ibegbu said it also amounts to domestic violence for a man not to have enough sex with his wife.
Other forms of domestic violence, according to Ibegbu, are threats, control, passive abuse (neglect) and domineering behaviour such as preventing a woman from working for fear she might use the opportunity to have affairs with other men or women, as the case may be these days.
Ibegbu advised young people to stop being desperate for relationships.
She also told parents to stop pushing their children into wrong relationships.
Asked whether it is no longer having too much sex with a wife against her will that constitutes domestic violence as narrated in the opening chapter of Dudding Lily, Ibegbu said both – not having enough sex with one’s wife and having too much sex with her against her will – amount to domestic violence.
She was also asked why feminists and gender equality activists have not deemed it necessary to fight for equal rights in polygamy – that is for women to have rights to marry up to four or more husbands as men do.
She said it was not possible in a world where everything, even gay marriage, has become possible.
Adepoju is an English Studies graduate of Adekunle Ajasin University and currently works with a Nigerian bank.
Budding Lily narrates the story of a young couple in the heart of Lagos faced with the problem of childlessness and domestic violence in a society that lays emphasis on fertility.
It is a story of the modern African woman and her patience, resistance and fight against abnormal norms.
It is a story of love, pain, hope and a country on the verge of change.
The book was reviewed by Barrister Toyin Ojo.
Drama In Kano As Ganduje’s Aide Resigns Over Governor’s Refusal To Concede Defeat In Kano Guber Race
Alhaji Hashim Suleiman, the Senior Special Assistant on Urban Beautification to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has tendered his letter of resignation to Secretary to the State Government.
In his resignation letter, he attributed his reason to the failure of Governor Ganduje to concede defeat to the Guber candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf, who won the election that has been declared inconclusive in controversial circumstances by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The letter of resignation, dated, Wednesday, March 13, 2019, which he personally signed, reads, ”I write to formally inform you of my voluntary resignation from the office of SSA, Beautification.
“I thank you for offering me the opportunity to serve under your administration as SSA.”
He added that as a transparent Khadimul-Islam, the governor ought to have conceded defeat, so as to serve as a precedent to other Muslims, who serve Allah in truth and sincerity.
Nembe Creek Well Explosion: More Than Meets The Eye —- By Ayo Fadahunsi
The predicament that played out on Friday, 1st March 2019, in Bayelsa is indeed a disaster like the others before it in the different parts of the country.
The Mile 1 community and others within earshot were in the wee hours of the morning, reeled off their beds by an explosion said to have come from the Nembe Creek Well 7, belonging to Aiteo Eastern Exploration and Production.
Within hours of occurrence, stories were churned out with headlines that threw Nigerians into pandemonium.
While both manicured and pruney fingers point at the company with zillion blame for the incident, let’s not ignore the small finger pointing to the accuser. The case of a breach cannot be overruled especially due to past escapades and ensuing crisis and case of militancy in the Niger Delta.
In a 2018 survey, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said the nation recorded 194 cases of pipeline vandalism between January 2017 and the corresponding period of last year.
It is impossible to overlook vandalism because not only has statistics placed Nigeria at the top of pipeline vandalism and illegal oil bunkering, it has also shown that out of every three explosions in this part of the world, one is a sabotage for economic gains.
Considering also that according to the company, facilities at the Creek were shut down on 28th of February due to NCTL outage and judging from the point of the explosion which was not from a pipeline but from a flow station in the oil well whose valves were intact, only a third-party infraction could have been responsible. An IOC which stands to lose hundreds of dollars in
There is also the issue of yellow journalism to decry. Did scores really die? Just how much of what was published is true?
First, they put
Then, International publications latched on to the lie that the NCTL was on fire – what NCTL
Next, they declared 50 persons missing only to turn around and publish a follow up saying missing persons have been found. What search party found them? This is a clear case of lack of professional integrity which is why rather than shamefully admit to
When that failed, they said Aiteo prevented NOSDRA from accessing the incident scene. This chain of lies cascading in the guise of media reports are barely intelligible rhythms with staccato aphorisms.
Aiteo’s official statement debunked the stories peddled: “Preliminary investigations confirm that there were no fatalities; human incidents or damage to community property. All the wells and facilities in the immediate vicinity have been inspected and secured. This incident did not occur at or involve any part of the NCTL or other pipelines. It is important to note that prior to this incident, all facilities have been shut down since 28 of February 2019 due to NCTL outage.
Also, a picture sighted saw the wellhead intact except for an external slash on one of the linking pipes to the wellhead. Anyone who saw the puncture would agree that there was a breach. If this is not an act of willful sabotage, an act that will have catastrophic effects on everyone, mostly the poor people of Nembe community, then, I wonder what it is.
Further, the story about Aiteo denying NOSDRA access to the facility, just like others, is a publication targeted at dragging the company’s image to the mud. Judging from an angle of corrupt practices that has bedevilled the country, we can understand that a hungry and dishonest journalist is given cash in exchange for a self-serving story; we can understand that a hare-brained journalist writes reports without first verifying its authenticity, and we can understand that when something of this nature happens, it is the company that gets the first blame. But what cannot be comprehended is why a government agency would effortlessly relay information soiled with dishonesty to the media.
It makes no sense that a government agency would be denied access to a property that also belongs to the government; it is in fact, a campaign harangue with meaningless underpinning. Edification is not needed to realize the deliberate falsehood being peddled here or the creating and withdrawing sensation targeted at heating up the polity.
When unverified facts and baseless stories are published, if it is not to mislead the public, it is to drive the country into the realm of a reality show conspiracy and when better to do this if not now that the country is starting a new dispensation. Some publications even hinted that the incident is going to affect production with the loss of 2500 barrels of oil that Well 7 produces per day. Exactly what kind of effect will a minuscule 2500
People need to wake up and realize the real lies in these stories flying around. This is simply a case of cash for stories with the sole aim of discrediting the company because
