Forbes profiles How Nigeria’s Rich Spend Over $2Million on Dream Weddings...

Report by Declan Eytan for Forbes magazine
Illusionists flown in from Spain, flowers imported from France, or an R&B superstar flown in from the United States. No request seems to be out of line to Nigeria’s rich when it comes to the most beautiful day of their life. And don’t even mention the b-word – budget, that is – ’cause whatever the bride wants, the bride gets.
Due to its oil reserves, gas, telecom and rising entertainment industry, Nigeria may consider itself Africa’s largest economy as of early2014. But natural resources and Nollywood aside, there’s another million dollar business out there giving the national GPD a major boost: the wedding events business.
The West African nation may be home to the majority of Africa’s billionaires, but there’s no shortage of millionaires either. “Our core clientèle is mainly made up by millionaires. They will not hesitate to spend the money in order to get what they want. If they need to fly in an artist from America, or a decorator from Dubai or London, they will do so,” says Funke Bucknor, founder of Nigeria’s leading wedding and events company, Zapphaire events.

It was a bloody yuletide celebration at Lessel town, in local government area of Benue State, where a clash between the police and irate youths led to the shooting of five youths with one confirmed dead while four others are said be in critical condition at a public hospital.  This is just as a suspected rival cult clash in Agbouhogh village, in the outskirt of Makurdi town left no fewer than 15 persons with serious injuries.  Though the reason for the bloody clash was not yet clear at the time of this report, the injured and some of the suspects were reported to have been apprehended and taken to the ‘D Division’ of the Makurdi Area Command of the police from where some of them were taken for medical attention.  Meantime, it was gathered from an eyewitness that the yuletide mayhem at Lessel started at about noon when over 2,000 youths from across Ushongo converged for a procession to the popular Ushongo Hills for their annual Christmas picnic.  “They were prevented from moving into the hills by the Police who were allegedly directed by the District Head of Mbayegh, Chief Nathaniel Hoyough, to prevent the picnic from taking place in his domain where the hill is located,”the eye witness said.

CAMPUS GIST: Nigerian University where students defecate in the open.

 
      


By Dr Ugoji Ebujo  
     Widespread anomie prevalent in Nigeria, occasioned by a virtual dilapidation of the societal ethical and moral framework, has literally squelched  any social appetite for  comparative sociological analysis of any segment of the Nigerian society and a corresponding segment of any foreign country even if that country is Somalia .  UNN  Any such  study invariably ends as an exercise in rendition of  woes,  lamentations  and pity. Our country once mighty have fallen  and is falling.  The decay is systemic and deep-seated and widespread .  Our political system is heavily  infected by corruption and the educational system is strangulated by poor funding. But our education suffers from much more.

PLEASE WHO IS THIS MAN?

Of Vision and Visionary Leadership....By Reno Omokri (Special Assistant to President Jonathan on New Media)


Reno Omokri 
One of the biggest misconceptions of the world, in my opinion, is the view held by some that members of the clergy should not participate in politics or government.
I have read The Holy Bible and The Quran and to the best of my knowledge, nowhere in both books is such a notion promoted.
As a matter of fact, the first usage of the word ‘government’ comes from The Holy Bible and the United States of America lifted the word ‘President’ directly from The Bible book of Daniel (chapter 6 verse 3).
Some of the greatest figures in The Bible were prophets and political leaders at the same time. Joseph was Prime Minister of Egypt and political ruler of the then known world but he was also described as a prophet and diviner of God’s will.
Daniel was appointed President of Babylon by King Darius yet he continued to function in office as a judge and prophet.

Giving his reason, Buhari said there is no office of first lady in the Nigerian constitution and there is no official role for presidents’ wives.

He disclosed this during an exclusive interview with Weekly Trust in Kaduna.According to him, there are ministries which are constitutional like the Ministry of Women Affairs and they should be allowed to play their roles.
He added that women would however play an important role in his administration as he knows what they can do if given the opportunity.
I was raised by my mother, as I lost my father when I was under six years, so I know what a woman can do if given the chance,” Buhari said.

Chinese city bans Christmas festivities in favour of national traditions...

Embedded image permalink
Students in one east China city won't be participating in any Christmas activities this year. According to a statement released by education authority officials in the Zhejiang Province town of Wenzhou, "no middle school, primary school or kindergarten may hold any Christmas-themed activity or celebration".
State-run Xinhua news agency reports the purpose of the edict is not to crack down on all Western celebrations, but instead, to highlight traditions native to Chinese culture such as the Lantern Festival and Lunar New Year.
Despite such bans, however, the Christmas season remains a significant time of year for many Chinese citizens throughout the country. Although officially atheist, China is currently on track to become the largest Christian nation in the world. Fenggang Yang, a sociology professor at Purdue University, predicts China's Christian population to reach 247 million by 2030.
The season is also profitable for many businesses. The Yiwu Christmas Products Industry Association estimates that its 600 member-factories produce nearly 60 per cent of the world's Christmas-themed goods.
On Reddit, users debated the practicality of the ban.
