White America finally catches up with OJ

September 18, 2007

The gleeful look on the face of a white female newscaster for Trash Fox News said it all. It’s the moment that most of ‘White’ America has been waiting for – OJ in chains. And guess what, he already has been singled out for extra-tough prosecution as probably payback for his murder acquittal more than a decade ago.White America has not gotten over the O.J. Simpson criminal case, or more to the point, a black man not being hanged for supposedly killing a white woman. This time they will make sure they hang him!


World Champions

September 10, 2007

Before anyone starts saying our guys are not under the age of 17 as they claim to be (we already know that), let us celebrate our victory in the FIFA Under-17 championship.

We may never win the ‘real’ world cup because there is no age limit, but lets hope that Oga Yardy extends the usual largesse to these ‘kids’. Well done boys, just make sure you get as much as possible from the Nigerian government and the other politicians that will be falling over themselves to ‘host’ you.  

Playing for the U17s can sometimes seriously damage your future ‘footballing’ career.  The world now knows how old you are, and like Philip Osondu etc, you may be stuck in youth teams all around the world when you should be actually contemplating retirement! It was once reported that John Terry (Captain, Chelski) sent Mikel Obi a 30th birthday card on his 20th birthday. I wonder why!

In spite of everything, well done guys, you have done our nation proud, whichever way!

Another message from God

September 5, 2007

JJ Okocha (so good they named him twice) signed for championship side Hull FC yesterday and ascribed his signing to a message from God. Like many Nigerians, every decision we make is attributed to a message or calling from God – Oh boy, na God oh!. We are no longer strangers to the conmen and women who set up churches, swindle the congregation and still trace their ‘spiritual’ beginnings to a certain night when God ‘appeared’ to them.

‘God’ appears or talks more to Nigerians than any group of people on his green planet. Our God still hasn’t given us a suggestion on how to make our society work, but s/he sure knows how to point out (thru people of the cloth) those who want to harm us. The ‘God’ that appears to us doesn’t mind if we use his name in vain, so long as it serves our immediate intent. Like a friend once said, the God that Nigerians refer to is a different God – the bogus one.

Who knows?

On what planet do these people live on?

September 1, 2007

FORMER Bayelsa State governor, Dr Diepreye Alamieyeseigha yesterday returned home to a rousing welcome in Yenegoa, the state capital and his hometown, Amassoma. A ROUSING WELCOME! Received by his community as a conqueror! On what planet do some of us live on? If you ever question why Nigeria will never overcome corruption, actions like this will quickly provide the answers you need. Some people from Amassoma and Yenegoa may not know any better, but most of them should feel embarrassed this morning.


The same infamy must apply to his “partner in sleaze”, the former Senate President Adolphus Wabara. Wabara was quoted at the civic reception as saying that he had come as representative of ‘his’ people to welcome ‘Chief’ Alamieyeseigha!

In a welcome address read by one time commissioner for Finance, one Mr Solomon Apreala of the Amassoma community, Alamieyeseigha was described as a great son and the day as a memorable one. Can you beat that? He had earlier been received by ‘Governor’ Timipre Sylva at the Government House!

 Ours is a country lacking decency and prospects.
