[ Masterweb Reports ] - Nigeria naira weakened to an all-time low of 334.50 against the dollar on the interbank market on Wednesday, a day after the central bank hiked interest rates to try to lure foreign investors back into local assets, traders said.
 
 
The naira fell 5.8 percent on Wednesday from its opening rate, and $10 million was traded at the new record low.
 
 
Traders said investors were pushing the currency lower to test the limit of how far it can fall, given a spread of almost 12 percent between the official and black market naira rates.
 
 
"If we have more people trying to buy the naira then it should strengthen. I think we will keep seeing the trickles ... I don't think we will see large inflows until the fundamentals of the economy improves," one trader said.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Peregrino Brimah reports ] - As a Retentionist status nation, Nigeria retains the death penalty. The punishment for the massacre of over 350 Nigerians in two days, and the subsequent secret burial of these victims with many not medically confirmed dead, can only be capital: death. 
 
This is what is ordained in the Holy Bible, this is what obtains in the Holy Quran and this is what obtains according to the Nigerian constitution and Nigerian Armed Forces Act.
 
As the Kaduna Judicial Panel report is being edited for release, one can only expect such a recommendation for an expedient death sentence to all found guilty, in the report and subsequent Whitepaper under the freshly commissioned nine-member Adamu Mohammed Mansur led panel.
 
The Nigerian constitution recommends the death penalty for acts of treason, homicide and armed robbery.
 
The Nigerian Armed Forces Act
 
Part XII, 106, under "Murder," defines:
A person subject to service law under this Act who, without justification or excuse, unlawfully
kills another person whether or not subject to service law under this Act when-
(a) he intends to cause the death of the person killed or that of any other person; or
(b) he intends to do the person killed or to any other person some grievous harm; or
(c) death is caused by means of an act done in the prosecution of an unlawful purpose, where
the act is of a nature that is likely to endanger human life,
is guilty of murder and liable, on conviction by a court-martial, to suffer death.
 
Further for the cases of incendiarism during the Decsmber 12th to 14th Zaria massacre, part 111. of theNigerian Armed Forces Act under caption "Arson" defines:
"A person subject to service law under this Act who wilfully or maliciously sets fire-
(a) to a public building, dwelling house, an office or any structure whatsoever, movable or
immovable, whether completed or not, occupied or not; oris guilty of arson and liable, on conviction by a court-martial, to imprisonment for life.
 
Recently the Nigerian army sentenced several officers to death for the offense of mutiny which falls into the capital offenses category according to the Armed Forces Act. 
 
Many of the Zaria victims remain burned beyond recognition from the incendiarism of the two days of the massacre, and in serious anguish and suffering. The pain to the victims and their families and orphaned children is beyond words.
 
The massacre of the hundreds of innocent Nigerians in Zaria last December has been described as the record state-perpetrator act of terror and genocide in recent global history.
 
 
While Nigeria's army chief Tukur Yusuf Buratai, defended the actions of the army and general's in charge in the two days of the December massacre and claimed the army acted according to its rules of engagement, RoE, further claiming in his deposition to the Nigerian Human Rights Commission, NHRC, that only seven (7) minority Muslims of the Islamic movement were killed in the fracas, the Kaduna panel of inquiry received evidence from the Kaduna state government of the army submitting over 350 bodies for secret burial, thereby finding the army chief complicit and in attempt to obstruct and subvert justice. The recommendations of the panel in lieu of this are yet to be revealed as the full report is yet to be made public.
 
For the massacre of hundreds of people, Nigerians expect justice to sanctify and purify the land, and death sentences are requisite justice for such an unwarranted and evil genocide.

[ Masterweb Reports: Odimegwu Onwumere reports ] - Senator Dino Melaye, the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district and Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, on Tuesday, the 12th of July, 2016, during an executive meeting, started a feud that was brought to the public consciousness.
 
Many people had condemned Melaye for allegedly making a statement during the altercation that he would beat Tinubu. Hardly did anyone arrogate blame to Tinubu. The later statement could be the reason in the USA, the enlightened among them coined a sentence thus – “Men-the New Women” – to show how men over there have been feminized and their women, ‘butchificated’. 
 
Many men have eaten up feminists’ garri and egusi soup every step of the way but certainly, this food is not for all men like Melaye.
 
The Melayes have said and shown in their character that they are not girlie-men who buy beauty products as women and do not have identity crisis, no matter how feminists have pressed hard to bend them.
 
It’s discernible that governments have been helping to turn men into little puppies before women by instigating in the minds of young girls that they can do whatever they want to do in life, thereby feminizing men; forgetting that over a long period, men had played women’s protector.
 
An observer lamented: Women no longer need men as a provider, protector or father of their children; an anonymous semen donor can do the job of creating a baby if a woman so chooses. Since the 1960s, modern mothers have raised their sons to be women, soaking them in feminine values like accepting responsibility for household chores, being caring, understanding and attentive, and bend to every wish of a woman.
 
In the west, the current philosophy of western freethinking democracy is worldly humanism, which is chiefly feminine in character. Feminism has produced a crop of men who are now soft in behaviour, strength and they are insecure, because they are eroded masculinity.
 
In the west, anti-feminists are appalled of how boys grow up being feminized with dearth of any knowledge of “manly virtues like courage, resolve, self-sacrifice, justice, temperance, self-reliance, self-discipline and honour” because feminism churlishes these qualities once known of men. 
 
We learned a Camille Pagilla, self-professed “feminist dissident”, in the Daily Mail, saying, “The entire elite class now, in finance, in politics and so on, none of them have military service – hardly anyone, there are a few. But there is no prestige attached to it anymore. That is a recipe for disaster… These people don't think in military ways, so there's this illusion out there that people are basically nice, people are basically kind; if we're just nice and benevolent to everyone, they'll be nice too. They literally don't have any sense of evil or criminality.’ According to Paglia, the results are there for all to see in the on-going dysfunction in Washington, where politicians ‘lack practical skills of analysis and construction’”.
 
The pressure was on Melaye to repudiate his comment and plead to Tinubu, but he was stuck to his gun, saying that he could not learn how to be a coward now. He defended the masculinity in him of which the pressure that was mounted on him to plead for forgiveness was invariably headed to feminize.
 
Much as modern civilizations condemn any form of violence, the pressure that was mounted on Melaye to apologize to Tinubu without a recourse to the contribution of the later to the saga, may be seen as the near feminization of Melaye; it may be seen as the extension of the unsurpassed influence that women from the western countries are spreading around the world since the last 30 years.
 
Women are garnering momentum at workplaces to the detriment of men, yet their voice is heard of how unequal opportunities they are yet to match with the men. Women in western societies no longer want macho men.  They are in love for/with men with feminine faces and features. But these are not for the Melayes of this world, no matter all that laws orchestrated to feminize men.
 
Women started this since World War II when men were in the battlefields, leaving the industrial fields for women. Since 2009, women, especially unmarried women, are toppling the men as breadwinners in a place like America, purchasing choice homes than the unmarried men. Yet, they breed children who never experienced fatherly role in their lives or know what it takes to be a man.
 
It's even noted that the New Hampshire State Legislature is now made up of a majority of women. Women in government have continued to soar with a Hillary Clinton as the presidential hopeful for the Democrats in the USA.
 
Women are smiling for the recession that badly hit men with 80% of the jobs lost by men. This led the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives to characterize recession by a "he-cession." Today, there are such matrix as, “Why Spoiled Western Women Don’t Want Men & Why They’d Rather Be Them.”
 
Yet, the ‘spoiled women’ around the world do not want to be to themselves and leave the Melayes of this world alone. The exposition of Tinubu at the National Assembly has shown that women are waxing stronger with propaganda such that they use template like – stop the violence against women – to draw worldwide pity and achieve their aim. Tinubu’s rather unfeminine gesture in the House, has buttressed a point that women are heading to not be known as weaker sex again, as against the aged-long periscope they have been viewed from.
 
Tinubu was afflicted with feminism and female gender-based affirmative biasness. The modern days women see any man that maintains his masculinity like Melaye as diehard chauvinists who only wallows in the ‘old school man’ mentality or is oblivious to accept the fact that women have become the  stronger sex and a gender bias, relieving men of their aged-long-held position.
 
Women are succeeding in their quest to feminize men by using such statements like “We have a long way to go and it’s still a man’s world” or “there are not enough women at the top of companies for it to be leaning toward a female society”. Today, women are having great influence on the young boys, hoping that since the old or older men still hold the masculinity mentality, they can feminize the young boys.
 
These women’s agenda to feminize the men is today being championed in the schools. For instance, in many countries of the world, Nursery teachers, Primary school teachers, after school care workers, Preschool care workers are all women.
 
It is apparent that in a country like the United Kingdom, about 90 per cent of the above professions are manned by women, unlike 20 years ago when such professions were 50 percent controlled by women.
 
An analyst said that boys are gravely under-achieving in public schools in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Australia, according to several recent research studies. Men now encompass scarcely 40% of enrolled University and College students and graduates.
 
This person went further to say: In 2009, for instance, women (will) earn more degrees in higher education than men in every possible category, from bachelor's level to Ph.D.s, according to the U.S. Department of Education. When it comes to masters-level education, for instance, U.S. women earn 159 degrees for every 100 awarded to men.
 
The story goes further to say that for the first time, less than 50% of law school graduates are men in North America. There are female football coaches for high school boys, especially those boys raised by single mothers. The irony is that these single mothers once had “traditional family values conservatives”. 
 
Many men have become Mr. Mom only with a penis. Such men take authoritative orders from their women, without which, there won’t be peace in the house. Tinubu showed that she has this trait when she once left her seat and sat on the seat of the Deputy Speaker of Senate and was opposed to any male colleague she wanted to oppose without a blink of the eyelid.
 
Hardly is anyone asking questions why male fertility in sperm counts and disorders of the reproductive system of men have gone drastically bad since five decades now. Some people might not be seeing this as the feminization of men agenda.
 
Some persons are saying that evidence mounts that there is a hidden strategy to destroy male reproductive system with environmentalists and researchers giving the strategy a name – testicular dysgenesis syndrome.
 
They said it could be “gender-bending" chemicals – endocrine disrupters that are ever-present in the modern societies which are gradually feminizing men.
 
On July 10, 2015, Yvonne Holterman, a leading voice on this topic, gave instances of ways the society is feminizing men through food.
 
Holterman said that debating this is futile since the proponents of feminization of men are at work with high-tech conspiracy.
 
Even, the feminization of men agenda has been extended to male animals through Soy isoflavones, a chemical that makes animals aggressive.
 
There are high-estrogenic foods that are for the feminization of men. Holterman outlined them to be eight in number, like, Pesticides Through Conventionally Raised Fruits and Vegetables (Pesticides that are sprayed on conventionally grown vegetables (often GMOs) act as estrogens once ingested); Soy can decrease testosterone; Hormones in beef (To increase meat and milk products hormones are given to cows by some farmers. This meat, when ate by humans, is transferred to us. Once inside the body these compounds have strong estrogenic effects).
 
Others are Beer, Television and the Feminization of Men (Male feminization on television has slowly be conditioned into the psyche of men. This has dramatically altered behaviour patterns. To discuss this among some, it can be seen as homophobic. In reality, it’s recognizing that through diet and entertainment, a new male has risen and ‘he’ is more ‘she’ than ever.
 
Holterman went further to say that Unsaturated Fats (from vegetable oils are mostly soy, which is an estrogenic plant byproduct, among the highest on the planet. These are covered in pesticides, which come with their own estrogenic properties); BPA in Plastics (Xenoestrogen is a class of chemical that mimics estrogen in humans. Chemicals from plastics leak into cans, bottles, packaging of food, rivers, streams, lakes, oceans and everything else. Plastic is everywhere), and among others.
 
What many men and women who clapped hands for the wild-gender exposition of Tinubu did not take into cognizance was that effemination is a word for women and it is unmanly. They wanted Melaye to be effeminate while Tinubu, a rascal. But Melayes in the world are ashamed seeing men with effeminative qualities.
 
Some researchers have given instances that the agenda by the modern days’ women to feminize men is very unhealthy such that it is a serious problem. They applaud the Islamic society as holding tenaciously to masculinity, because no generation has survived being matriarchies. They said that matriarch societies do not survive and there has never been an Alexandra de Great or General Pat-Tina.  Even in Africa, some long-lasting stories spotted women inspiring wars, but they never led them. Men did.
 
Some gentle and masculine-loving women in Europe and America are even showing signs of anger how they lost their countries and continents to the crassness of feminism. And this is the same platform that the Tinubus want to introduce in Nigeria.
 
They forgot that women like them in the other continents see marriage as not for them because of their lack of respect for men. There are single mothers littered everywhere. A researcher said that this is becoming “a la Bristol Palin syndrome” in America.
 
The researcher regretted that the only masculine men in the world today are named Adamu, not Johnson. And the Adamus are fast taking over because they don’t prefer the girlie-men which the Tinubus are championing for men and not taking to account the death of the society they are causing.
 
Authorities and politicians even give assurance to the public that refugee males that entered Europe from the Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia would be made to learn that Western women are independent and sexually liberated. This may be seen as where the weakness of the world started from.

[ Masterweb Reports: Ikechukwu Enyiagu reports ] - Hope is easy to have; it is less spiritually and mentally strenuous than the demand of faith. However, its burden is greater than that of justice, rights and faith. Every democratic society is, by law, governed by justice and rights and, sometimes, when political expectations mix with faith, it is only because, in all that man plans, there often are rooms for the unforeseen. Therefore, governments that are pro-people often create abundant room to contain exigencies. This informs one of the reasons why every State has the military and the police; they do not want to be taken unawares if, in any eventuality, crisis comes up.
 
Nigeria as a county, I daresay, now lies on the threshold of hope and hopelessness and, therefore, truly deserves this ‘change’ more than anything else: change in its political foundation and mindset. Come to think of it, why should there not be an aggressive and revolutionary change in our political system when, for decades, it’s become blatantly clear to all and sundry that we cannot get anywhere as a county under this political status quo? Our leaders are being unfair to the history of this country and to posterity with their continuous denial of what is and what eventually will be.  
 
I was, as other thinkers are, compelled by the state of things to take an even closer look into our joint political business called Nigeria, and I have come to a conclusion that, from the book of history, posterity may judge me the same way or, maybe even harder than the so-called today’s political class, for doing absolutely nothing to lend positive voice to change in my time. Therefore, I am hereby looking into the so-called Nigeria Unity School system and its Federal Character manifestation in political appointments.  
 
It is my understanding that the so-called Unity School system in Nigeria was put in place by the then military dictator of Nigeria, Yakubu Gowon. According to him, the main objective for the creation of these unity schools was to bring people of diverse tribe and tongues in Nigeria together in a unifying spirit. Gowon, it is said, bought the idea of unity schools when he paid a personal visit to the Federal Government College, Sokoto in 1973 and observed the atmosphere of unity and cordiality among the students regardless of ethnic or religious background. Suffice it to say that his decision to create the unity schools came after the genocide which his government carried out against the Igbo from 19667-1970. In his understanding, compelling, or rather, setting mechanisms for people of these clearly divergent and divisive ethnic nationalities to study under one roof devoid of Nigeria’s true war history in what he called “Unity Schools” was a sure means of containing further dissension or demand for fair play amongst future Nigerians.  To him, it would surely prevent Igbo children whose families were unjustly wasted in the war from asking further questions. It is worthy of note, also, that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), a government body which compels the country's graduates into a compulsory one year national service, came about by this very Gowon’s decision to write off the events of the civil war as if they never happened and as if the genocide which he supervised never took place. This very man who killed millions of Nigerians also killed the Nigeria school system in the process of trying to cover up his sins and that of the government. Not minding that scores of youth corpers have died for this selfish vision, we will shortly see how his co-called quota system has so far fostered unity and produced a truly united and happy Nigeria.

The above list has been in circulation for a while and there has not been any other list which countered it. Therefore, to all, this represents the idea of a unity school in Nigeria and how students in each state qualify for admission. In the words of Prof. Abdulrashid Garba, the Registrar, National Examination Council (NECO) (http://guardian.ng/news/neco-registrar-explains-disparity-in-cut-off-marks-for-unity-schools/), “Performances vary from state to state…It is so because the cut-off marks for such disadvantaged states are usually lower…These school are unity colleges which means you must take along all parts of the country.” Well, it takes only an enemy of unity to see anything uniting in this setup – not even minding that the country uses one curriculum and all students sit for one WASSE. Nevertheless, let us leave this for a moment and look at how Prof. Abdulrashid Garba’s claims reflect on Federal “Character” Appointments and how Gowon’s vision for Nigeria and the Igbo has fared so far.

An expose written by Abdulrahman Abdulmalik in Premium Time of August 28, 2015 (http://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/headlines/189117-outrage-grows-across-nigeria-as-buharis-lopsided-appointments-continue.html) will give you a detailed clue. I do not want to go into other appointments which unashamedly ridicled the so-called Federal Character. However, the latest ambassadorial list where states like Bayelsa, Ebonyi, Plateau, Ondo and Sokoto were completely ignored or said to not have qualified people for the seat (which, by the way, was also seeded to the North) leaves a very sour taste to the political tongue. 
 
Questions: 
 
It is said that education is the security of the future, if education is the security, therefore, and gives you the means, and if appointments are principally made from academic qualifications before other considerations, why has the North then taken over all security positions when, according to Unity School’s shameless board, it clearly shows that students from the north are mostly cajoled through school and, mostly and probably, given honorary certificates in place of due certificates awarded students from other regions – especially those from the South East? 
 
How come those from educationally ‘very poor; states suddenly come up as more qualified to handle everything regarding the security and future of Nigeria than those who have been proven to have all it takes to steer this country aright? 
 
Clearly, we are in for a terrible and inevitable future as Nigerians unless some form of political revolution is urgently carried out. This, I see, rest squarely of those from the South. Since we have done things in a particular way and we have always failed, is not time enough for us to do things differently? Sadly, it appears that the same North which has remained academically on the ground has been the same people championing the Nigeria cause. Is it a rocket science, therefore, why our locomotion has remained One step forward, two steps back? A stitch in time, they wisely say, saves nine. I believe that a president who truly stands for change for the betterment of all knows exactly what to do. However, like we use to say in Igbo, “Uzu na-amaghi akpu egbe, lee egbe anya n’odu.” Nigeria has drifted into a place where justice, rights and even faith seem dead and where hope has become the costliest of all commodities. This needs an immediate attention.

[ Masterweb Reports: Eugene Agha reports ] - Suspected militants yesterday raided Fatoki, Obadore and Egan, in Igando area of Lagos, carting away valuables. The attack was immediately followed by a shootout between the suspected militants and policemen from the Igando Police Division.

 

The area under attack is about five minutes away from Iba town, where the monarch, the Oniba of Iba, Oba Yushau Goriola Oseni, was kidnapped penultimate Sunday.
 

The community just attacked is bordered by water, which made it susceptible to attacks from the dreaded militants believed to live in the surrounding creeks.
Some witnesses alleged that the armed suspects arrived the quiet town on speed boats around 7.30 am yesterday.
 

A witness, Ojo Oladele told Daily Trust that a number of persons were injured in the crossfire between policemen and the militants.
 

Oladele said, “Apart from carting away food stuffs, they stole generators, televisions, laptops and refrigerators.”

[ Masterweb Reports: Patrick Kabwela reports ] - With all the current news circulating about T.B. Joshua, this article highlights the key differences between him and other clerics in his league. Love him or hate him, he is a public figure that cannot be ignored.
 
Nigerians have become notorious for trickery and bribery the world over. Their notoriety is so wide spread that in some places just possessing a Nigerian passport draws the trail of the police.

In almost every country there are crooks and honest people, Nigeria is no exception. The good news is that all is not rotten, in the basket of rottenness.

But what is it that makes T. B. Joshua unique. By the way, I am neither his fan nor his foe. Below find things that T.B. Joshua does, which other men of God don't.

These are the things that make him a darling of the people despite the negative publicity campaign by his fellow church men and the media.
 
1. His charity work

He is not the richest when compared to the other Nigerian pastors who are reputedly super rich.

One has five personal jets. Just one similar jet stirred controversy in Malawi when our president bought it, but a certain Nigerian pastor has five of them.

Some own big hotels, printing presses, limousines, and big companies. The irony is, you hardly hear of them giving to the poor, the widows, the lame and the blind.

T.B. Joshua gives liberally, giving out even cars while others are stockpiling them in their compounds.



He gives scholarships and his ministry has helped educate many people up to university level.

2. His humility

He is a down to earth person. He mingles with people, breaks down his English so people can understand while mending marriages and hearts of people.

He is seen having lunch with old people, the lame and what have you. He is seen comforting people and many times he has been heard telling childless parents that he will be their child.

He jokes freely with all while most of the men of God we know, believe in being serious, and by that I mean living a separated life and mingling with nobody.

3. His father heart

He is the only one I know, and I stand to be corrected, who has identified and recruited people, and is training them in his own church.

He is exposing them and even allows them to appear on the television alongside him. Sometimes he even goes backstage while they take charge of the services.

Show me any other minister or leader who has done that. All the others make sure that the television is off limit for any budding or aspiring preacher.

If you find them grooming someone, then, be sure, he is one of their kin and folk, otherwise, NO WAY!!

Some feel so insecure that they have to rush home leaving meetings so that nobody preaches apart from them.

4. He is no globe trotter

Seems like this man knows his mission field. He rarely goes out of his country. He has the courage to send some of his boys to the United States of America to do ministry.

This is a direct opposite of what the ministers we know are doing. This T. B. Joshua man is never excited with foreign trips which others would quickly take up at the expense of their local flock.

He is different. People find him where he is based. People from European countries have to swallow their pride and go to Nigeria if they want him. What a contrast to most preachers we know.

I have deliberately left out issues to do with the way he ministers. Not all people agree on that, that's why others brand him "controversial".

These issues are more theological than otherwise and as you know, the pew man is not conversant with theological issues. He is a bench warmer and a layman sitting at the back of some church.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - The Federal Government has cancelled its plan to build a massive film village in Kano State following concerns raised on social media and by Muslim clerics over the immorality the village could spawn.
 
More than N3 billion ($10m) was budgeted for the project as part of Nigeria’s efforts to improve the Hausa language film industry known as Kannywood and also create jobs. The film village was projected to create over three thousand jobs in addition to promoting the Hausa language.
 
Muslims clerics and Muslims on social media argued it would promote immorality, calling the federal government to scrap the project.
 
_____________
Editors Notes: Film Village will not work in the North just as the hosting of the 52nd edition of Miss World Beauty Pageant in 'Northern' Abuja did not work in 2002. The event was moved to London due to religious riots in nearby city of Kaduna that killed over 200 people. The bloody clashes between Muslims and Christians arose from  what some Moslems branded blasphemous article in a 'Christian' ThisDay newspaper about the Miss World event.
 
ThisDay on Saturday November 16, 202 carried an article by Isioma Daniel in which he wrote that Prophet Muhammad would probably have approved of the Miss World competition. The Sultan of Sokoto called for peace and calm  on national television, but the federal Minister for Abuja burst into tears in front of the cameras, crying that Daniel has blasphemed the prophet. (Nigeria for you!!). Muslim radicals rioted in Kaduna and other parts of the North burning properties and killing Christians.
 
Christian groups took revenge killing Moslems and set fire to Muslim homes, companies and mosques.  In the evening of November 22, the organizers of the Miss World Pageant decided to move the event to London for fear of the safety of participants. The crisis lasted from November 20 to 23 before it was quelled by security forces. FILM VILLAGE WILL NOT WORK IN THE NORTH - NIGERIA SHOULD USE THE FUNDS FOR KANO FILM VILLAGE TO SET UP NOLLYWOOD FILM VILLAGE IN SOUTH-SOUTH or SOUTH-EAST.
