Why sex makes the world go round

Have you ever wondered why there is so much talk about sex in the 21st century? Everything about a life is linked to sex and the woman. She is a poet’s dream. An artist’s impression. The lyrics of a successful male musician. The dance steps of a skilled instrumentalist and a photographer’s imagination.

New Kuchigoro: An IDP’s camp of pain, sadness and

It is one of the four camps for the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Abuja. The inmates number about 2000, minus children.

Buhari/INEC: An Endangered Polity And Failure Foretold

That President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted failure in the three elections conducted under his watch only confirms Sunday Vanguard’s insistence that the era of free, fair and credible elections may have gone for good. And whereas the drumbeats of war, which came from both the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were enough to elicit the type of outcome witnessed in the Rivers State re-run elections, the less than efficient activities of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, introduced a dangerous dimension, to further inflame an already combustible situation. This report will show that the President’s condescending disposition towards INEC, is partly responsible for the shambles being witnessed, just as it would point out why, if these inconclusive elections are anything to go by, the APC Federal Government may be suggesting to Nigerians that it is not interested in free, fair and credible elections. Read the facts as they speak for themselves.

Sexual harassment: Storm in Queen’s College

A teacher made headlines, last week, when he was accused of molesting a JSS 2 girl in boarding house.

The Management of Queen’s School dismissed the allegation, while also exonerating the teacher. The presumed mother said: “I would like to report the Management of Queen’s College, Yaba, Lagos. As I write, the Principal and Vice Principals have, over a month now, deliberately suppressed several complaints of sexual harassment which my daughter and some other students have consistently reported to their class teacher, their Year Head, the Head of Department of the accused teacher and the Principal’s Office.

Rising tension as Cameroon ‘annexes’16 Nigerian communities
