I’m serving Nigeria with my multiple wives - Ned Nwoko

Billionaire Ned Nwoko has attributed the high level of prostitution to Southerners shunning polygamy  In an interview with Guardian on Saturday, Nwoko said a man with multiple wives focuses more on them as opposed to a monogamous man who lavishes money on girlfriends. He also made reference to his ancestral lineage and that of the Ooni’s known for multiple wives.  Nwoko, who is seeking the senatorial seat for the Delta North, said: “Many women are out there on their own without husbands, especially in the southern part of the country, and there is a high level of prostitution.  "What some of our girls do to make ends meet is regrettable and if our men emulate their northern counterparts by having more than one wife, that could probably change the situation. “The average southern may have only one wife but many girlfriends also, and he is spending his money on the girlfriends; sometimes even more than on his wife.  "The man, who has three wives, for instance, concentrates on t

In a series of tweets, Keyamo wrote: “Those who act as if they’re God & deride @officialABAT by suggesting he’s frail have not done as much State by State campaigns and Town Hall meetings/Stakeholders’ Engagements as much as he has done. Only God can make the final call on issues of health or life. Stop playing God! “It’s the height of foolish fanaticism when you’re so politically indoctrinated to believe those who’re opposed to your candidate are some kind of ‘evil’ beings. If only you know how the opposing leaders are relating behind the scenes, you’ll feel so stupid & sorry for

You know them, tell us. It is not good to say what you call class defamation, you say, governors, please I am not one of those governors, so Mr. President please spare me, tell Nigerians that the Integrity governors are not part of them, we have integrity, we are not part of them,” Wike sa

Bring Those Who Attacked Us in Kaduna, Borno, Gombe to Book, Atiku/Okowa Campaign Urges NSA

Image
The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization has urged the National Security Adviser (NSA), General Mohammed Monguno, to further reassure Nigerians in the battle against political thuggery by intervening to ensure that those who attacked its rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe are brought to justice. Our Campaign commends the NSA for his stance against state governors as well as politically intolerant politicians who engage in mobilizing thugs to attack the campaigns of rival political parties as witnessed in the attack of the PDP Presidential campaign rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe States. The Atiku/Okowa Campaign holds that bringing those who attacked our rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe to book will reassure Nigerians and serve as very strong deterrent to perpetrators of electoral violence and their backers. Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign had been at the receiving end of violators in spite of the decent campa

Image
The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization has described the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Deputy Director-General of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Organization, Mr Adams Oshiomhole as an unstable and falsehearted character who should be disregarded by Nigerians.

Oshiomhole is behaving like someone suffering from acute Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD). This can only explain why the former APC National Chairman, who was disgraced out of office, continues as a chattering roller coaster and a musical chair politician who specializes in making unfounded comments and inventing fictitious claims against others just
