Confusing Grammar: Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon Wishes Nigeria Happy Independence

Everybody knows Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon. He is very famous for his too much confusing grammar when he speaks.
Read below what he said regarding Nigeria's 52nd independence celebration. Also, Please do not forget to have your dictionary beside you.

"As we celebrate our flag and shambolic autarky at 52, we must realize that Nigeria is still more of a geographic contrivance as has been rightly posited by Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Not with our centrifugal excrescences preponderating over our centripetal proclivities. It’s a matter for mental pabulum that we are daily drifting into our ethnic cocoons. 
We still remain one country with disparate ethnic agendas and I can say it for the umpteenth time again that we must sit down in a sovereign national colloquy to discuss the basis for our nationhood. Anything short of this is just vacuous scahiamachy.

I am already confused before I finished reading it. But I thinks he means that we need to go back to our roots and live as one nation if we want to succeed as a country.

My HIV Positive Husband Can’t Sleep With Me… Read My Story


I am a 38 year old woman and got married four years ago, I have never conceived though the problem is not me it is my HIV positive husband who cannot perform in bed.
I am HIV negative which makes it all controversial, I am a protestant and divorce is not allowed in my religion so am stuck with my husband. I have been taking In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to help me conceive a HIV negative child.
My husband is also diabetic and due to his condition he has turned to be abusive always calling me useless and a barren woman who cannot produce anything from my womb. It hurts me a lot knowing that I have been on his side through thick and thin but he never appreciates.
At times he gets angry and slaps me even in front of people, beats me with food and mistreats me.
I think it’s my time to leave and start a new life though am not sure whether I should leave my husband alone knowing his delicate health.
I need your advice.

In a short video below in Hausa language, Shekau claimed that 10 wives of Boko Haram members are currently being detained by Nigerian officials, an action he described as “demeaning,” and threatened a round of reprisals on wives of government officials. 

 In the above video,  the Boko Haram leader also threatened violence by the group over a recent anti-Islam video which denigrates Prophet Mohammed.

Must Read: A Message From Nigeria On Her Birthday


GistNaija came across this poem talking about how the people in charge of Nigeria treat the country badly while they enrich themselves. The last lines of the poem put me in deep thought, “Do your part to make me grow
Now you have a chance, you know

Heavily laden with despair
While you live in vanity fair
You’ve been walking on air

Is This True: Watching Television Shortens Our Life Span, Suggested a research


Every hour spent watching Tv, Dvds, videos as an adult reduces life expectancy by 22 minutes a study suggests. 

People who watch Tv on an average of six hours each day can expect to live 5 years less than those who do not. Tv lovers take note Anyone who spends six hours a day in front of the box is at risk of dying five years sooner than those 
who enjoy more active pastimes, it is claimed. 

Researchers say that watching too much TV is as dangerous as smoking or being overweight, and that the "ubiquitous sedentary behaviour" should be seen as a "public health problem". 

My Husband Can’t Last More Than 2 Minutes in Bed – What Do I Do?


I am 24 years old and I got married just barely 2 months ago. I dated my husband for 5 months before we decided to get married. I love him very much and he is the best thing that has happened to me.
The relationship is perfect but the only problem I am having now is that my husband comes too quickly when we are making love. Most times he will last for less than 2 minutes and It does not satisfy me. I am so frustrated because I don’t know what to do or who to tell. Is there any drugs he can use or anything that he needs to help him.
I love my Husband very much and regardless of the outcome, I will stick with him to the end. No divorce in my dictionary.

Terrorism – Goodluck Jonathan to Mark Independence Within The Presidential Villa

                    President Goodluck Jonathan independence day speech

PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan will on Monday (today) mark the country’s 52nd independence anniversary within the confines of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, contrary to the previous practice of holding such events at the Eagle Square in Abuja.

President Jonathan's 52nd Independence Day Speech


Beloved countrymen and women, on this day, fifty-two years ago, our founding fathers brought joy and hope to the hearts of our people when they won independence for our great country.

 Nigeria made a clean break with more than six decades of colonial rule, and emerged as a truly independent nation. That turning point was a new beginning for our nation.

Those who witnessed the lowering of the Union Jack and the emergence of the Green White Green flag continue to relish the memory, because that ceremony was not just about the destiny of a nation, but the future of a people.


GistNaija wishes all our readers and every Nigerian a happy Independence day. May Nigeria become one nation. 

God Bless Nigeria, God Bless Us All.

My Husband Cheated On Me With Another Woman. Should I Cheat On Him TOO?

I discovered a few months back that my husband slept with another lady. 
This was less than 2 months after our second child, and 2 months to our fourth year wedding anniversary. To say that I was deeply hurt is putting it mildly…. I wept like never before and some of my thoughts included divorce and even suicide.
When I confronted him, he opened up and told me it was just a one-night stand and apologised for his actions. I forgave him (or looking back now, so I thought), but the whole event still plays in my mind/head and I just feel a surge of hatred all over again.

A Must Read: 10 Most Important Questions to Ask Before You Get Married

                             question to ask before you get married

Don’t make that mistake. Don’t get married without knowing your future spouse’s thoughts on these issues that can kill a marriage.
Compromise is usually not an option if the two of you disagree on these issues that can be deal breakers.
1. Do you want to have children?
It is a huge red flag in your relationship if you and your future spouse can not agree on whether to have children or not.
Thinking that you can deal with this issue later in your marriage is a mistake.
Making a decision to have a baby when one parent doesn’t want to have children is not fair to the child or to your marriage.
2. Can we talk about money?
The mechanics of how the two of you will handle your finances really isn’t the issue. Many couples in successful marriages have separate checking accounts
