“I believe that a bad and corrupt government is a much danger to national security as armed robbers" - Buhari


The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has said that a currupt government is worse than armed robbery.
“I believe that a bad and corrupt government is a much danger to national security as armed robbers, kidnappers and terrorists. I want to commend our armed forces for their recent successes over the Boko Haram.” Buhari said.

He spoke at an APC’s Town Hall meeting on security, held at the Barcelona Hotel, Abuja, on Wednesday.
He explained that by his training and experience, the concept of security must be holistic.
The ex-military ruler stressed that the safety and welfare of all citizens which he said was the primary purpose of government anywhere in the world, could be better pursued and achieved when the right government is in place.
Buhari said, “The total security concept reflects directly on improving the quality of the lives of our people and rebuilding the economy.
“Even if we have the best police, we will not be able to guarantee total security as long as 53 per cent of our youths remain unemployed and 70 per cent of our people are living below the poverty line.
“These are all the issues that my party and myself are committed to. It is along this line that we have promised a regretting plan for the North East of Nigeria. It is based on ensuring that never again will our country experience the type of human tragedy currently going on in that part of the country.”
He explained that during his short stint as military head of state, he increased Nigeria’s refineries from one with a capacity to refine 50,000 barrel per day to four with refining capacity of 450,000 barrel per day without borrowing a single kobo from anywhere.
The APC presidential candidate also explained how he resisted foreign and domestic pressures to devalue the Naira and remove subsidy on petroleum products in December 1983.
He challenged anybody who had contrary information about this to come out and tell Nigerians.
According to him, it goes beyond having the best Police Force and the military; it involves sound economic management which includes zero tolerance for corruption as well as leadership by example.

  3. EXCERPTS FROM “THE OTHER WOMAN IN MARRIAGE”

    INTRODUCTION
    This book “the Other Woman in Marriage” stresses on “Strange Women” and the marriage institution. As we read on, the terms “the Other Woman” and “Strange Woman” will be used interchangeably as they constitute major discourse.

    Disagreements are common between married couples-including very happy ones, but it could be approached in variety of ways. The way and manner couples handle disagreements may well influence their long-term happiness and togetherness.

    The ability to handle situations in your marriage makes you a real husband and not a man. There are plenty men out there and there are husbands out there, too. Husbands are those who know what marriage is all about.

    Shying away from your responsibilities as a husband only makes you vulnerable to these Strange Women. Problems are inevitable in a marriage no matter how anointed you are. In fact, problems are spices that garnish the marriage. If well handled, it strengthens the marriage - it brings understanding, maturity and unity into the marriage. There must be a problem before victory – you can’t be a victor over nothing.

    On the other hand, if a problem is not well managed or handled in a marriage, it could escalate and give birth to grief, fight, disunity etc.. Conflict is common and some of us have had a plateful of it in our marriages. Although some of our experiences have not been pretty, but we must stand gallant always for our marriage to flourish.
    We all know that marriage involves two people from different backgrounds-some with awful habits, interesting idiosyncrasies, gluttony, snoring devices, bunch of expectations and with the much heat of daily trials of life, we are bound to have conflict unavoidably.

    Since every marriage has its tensions, it is a question of how to deal with the situations as conflict can lead to a process that develops oneness or division. You and your spouse must behave maturely when conflict occurs as divorce is not an option for Christians.

    Strange Women are beckoned by our attitude or character of selfishness and self-centeredness in marriage. We invite them by our actions. Going to drinking joints as a husband and head of the house because you claim to be the tail that wags the big dog is one of the ways you invite these women into your life and your marriage. Marriage today is often seen as a consumption item - a financial burden and for that singular reason many refused to be married and are now doing it the other way round – something that kindled God’s anger to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
