I Suspect I May Losing My Sight-Okey Bakassi

Comedian, Okey Bakassi took to social media to pen an open letter to the president.
He wrote:

“Dear President, How are you feeling today? Hope the test results are out and the doctors are taking good care of you? Some of us are praying for your quick recovery and safe return. No need to deceive you, Sir…things are getting worse at home since you left. Prof is trying his best but we are not seeing any CHANGE. I don’t know if government officials are not following his instructions because of his size. Sir, you know all your political appointees follow your Presidential “Body Language” but since your “body” is not presently located at home, there’s nothing to follow….so nothing is working. Sir, we heard you called Trump on the phone. That’s cool. It would be nice if you can speak to us (that voted or didn’t we vote for you) to reassure us ….we are confused oh. I’m also not feeling well too, Sir. I suspect I may be losing my sight…. because anytime I look in my wallet I can’t see anything…can your London doctors help me? Let me allow you go back to rest. I want to report some people to you but that will be in my next letter. Get well soon, your Excellency. Your guy, @okeybakassi “

Seyi Law Replies Pastor Who Condemned BBN

Hmmmm!!! Is Big Brother promoting IMMORALITY? Absolutely. Is it good? No. Is Big Brother entertaining? Yes. Does that justify the IMMORALITY? No. What are the organisers doing about it? This is as far as I know, the organisers cancelled the shower hours to reduce the level of obscenity and DStv gave us the choice to watch and not to, depending on you. What does this mean? It means watching is by CHOICE and not FORCE. Does that mean we can't voice out our opinions about the decadence of the morality in house? Of course, we can. Continue…

Is it right to demand or rain curses for cancellation because of your own beliefs? No. If you don't like it, stop watching, others watching are not using your eyes. Don't be a moral bigot at the detriment of others entertainment. This is the reason Christ did not force anybody to be a Christian. He is subtle in convincing you. see more after the cut

I Want To Go To London… To See Buhari By Reuben Abati

 When 15 million plus Nigerians voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 General elections, their expectation was that he would be available to serve them 24/7/365, and that those who fielded him as their candidate had done their home work to avoid what is curiously becoming the Katsina problem in Nigerian politics. Katsina!

But we have now found ourselves in a situation whereby our President is now in London, for more than one month sir, ma, and we are here, and we have an acting President, who according to everybody, including the extremists and the mischievous, and the politically partisan, is beginning to try his best, with his admirers, now praying for the worst.   

For that reason alone, we have an emotionally, politically and spiritually divided country on our hands. Don’t mind what they tell you, and don’t deceive yourself, the Nigerian Presidency is in turmoil. It is not our wish. It is not what the voters asked for. But that is how democracy works. You cannot predict the results that democracy produces. Not even in America. Or Russia.
