2  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Woman Seeks Advice On How To Deal With Mother-In-Law Who Gave Her Pregnancy Tests On Christmas on: 7-01-2021 03:21 PM

A mother-in-law stunned her son's wife when she bought the woman a pregnancy test, a teddy bear as a baby, and a calendar for tracking cycles as a Christmas present.

However, let's just say it hasn't gone down well.

The woman turned to the internet for advice on dealing with her mother-in-law's subtle hint.

She wrote:
"My husband and I were moving into our new house over Christmas. We asked for no gifts or cards because of our move.

"Most people respected this but not his mother."

The woman went on to reveal how her mother-in-law gave her the unique present last year.

She detailed:
"Instead the gift was two pregnancy tests, a teddy bear dressed as a baby and a calendar for tracking cycles."

The anonymous woman said she discussed starting a family with her husband but the couple weren't ready during the pandemic.

She added:
"This is such a useless gift and is not appreciated. I feel pressured to have babies by her so often."

The woman suggested her mother-in-law gave the presents to someone else who would use them as she didn't need them yet.

But the husband's mum was upset and insisted she kept them "just in case".

The woman continued:
"His mother thinks I was disrespectful denying the gift like I did, she does not know I threw them away.

"My husband tried to get the gifts from the trash but I said no leave them there and he thinks I'm wrong and wasteful."

The woman claimed the presents were "rude" and doesn't understand how her mother-in-law couldn't see it for herself.

Since it was shared on the online forum, several Reddit users agreed it was over-jumping the line.

One said:
"I think [the woman] under-reacted. I would have thrown away the tests and baby stuff in front of her to prove my point."

Another added:
"Pressuring someone to make a major life choice isn't okay."
Meanwhile, one Reddit user feared the mother-in-law would tamper with her birth control.

The person wrote:
"OP [original poster] needs to check their birth control or replace it after mother-in-law was at their home."
And this user joked:
"It would be like you started bringing her retirement home brochures 'just in case'."

4  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / It’s Unfair - Nigerians Slam Deeper Life, Kumuyi, Express Worry Over Don Davis’ HIV Status on: 7-01-2021 02:34 PM

Nigerians have attacked Deeper Life and its presiding pastor, Williams Kumuyi over a new report alleging that Don Davis Archibong, the Junior Secondary School 1 student of Deeper Life High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom, who was allegedly assaulted and molested tested positive for HIV.
This comes after a Deeper Life doctor was caught sneaking into the hospital that admitted the boy and tried to inject him with a substance.
However, the mother of the boy, Deborah Okezie said all the tests conducted on him showed that he's HIV negative.
In a Facebook Live earlier, she said she caught a doctor from Deeper Life High School taking blood samples from her son at the hospital where Don Davis was first admitted.
And during a broadcast on Wednesday, Okezie said the man had been arrested.
She also said the principal of the school, Ndidi Solomon, insisted that her son was HIV positive.
She said,
"When he got to the school, and they did an HIV test for him, it was negative. All the tests recently conducted on the boy have come out negative. I don't know why Ndidi is insisting he is HIV positive. Maybe they are waiting for what they put in my son's body to manifest."

This has generated reactions on Twitter with many Nigerians calling on the church and its General Superintendent, Pastor William Kumuyi, to react to the allegations.
Taking to her Twitter page to express her concern, @feli_nwa said,
"Why is the church doing everything to bury this case?  How hard can it be to give them justice?"
Chinyere O (@harchychy) said, "This is infuriating! Look how this woman, her son, and the family have gone through so much asking for justice. What horror is this! Kumuyi and Deeper Life Church, we're seeing your evil. I hope this woman never gets tired and there (will) be #JusticeForDonDavis."

Amaka (@AdashofGreens tweeted, "My God, our system is so broken and rotten that they'd rather destroy the truth and damn consequences, instead of apologising, fixing situations, and coming to a resolution. The whole back and forth is depressing, now I can't imagine how Don Davis feels."0 CommentsACTIVISM16 Hours Ago

Temitope Adekeko (@temitopeadekeko) said, "Even if he's HIV positive. Even if he's adopted. What do those things have to do with the matter on the ground? Is that the excuse for the molestation of the child?"

Hemophagocyte (@Cruxx29) wrote, "If the child was HIV positive, would they admit him into the boarding house in the first place?"
Didi_gozie (@patieceric_101) wrote,
"Hope the boy wasn't injected with HIV, please. That will be the height of all these."
Nkem4eva (@nwaegbe_nkem) tweeted,
"Ahn ahn!!!!! What rubbish is this? I hope that boy has not been infected, madam? Where is the sanctimonious @pastorwf_kumuyi in all this?"
Atagana Great (@GreatAtagana) said, "This is getting really messy. The silence from the school & the founder is irritating much and since she has been updating us, it’s logical that the school does so as well but it looks like the school is playing a silent game so that everyone will just forget the case."

Similarly, Amy (@Miz_Amy_) tweeted, "I'm quite perplexed by the way Deeper Life is handling this Don Davis issue. It's a very straightforward matter for goodness sake."
For Stephanie (@Stephanie_Nwagu), it seems some people are trying to silence Okezie's quest for justice.

She tweeted, "But this don Davis matter is really getting out of hand and she's fighting this battle alone. People (are) really trying to silence this woman and it’s unfair."
5  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Just In: China Mocks US Capitol Invasion By Trump Supporters on: 7-01-2021 02:09 PM

China internet erupted after dramatics scenes unfolded in America as supporters of President Donald Trump broke into the US Capitol.

The chaos has been likened to the Hong Kong anti-government protests of 2019.

This is coming after protesters loyal to President Trump stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, halting Congress’s counting of the electoral votes to confirm President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory as the police evacuated lawmakers from the building.

Earlier today, state media tabloid Global Times tweeted side-by-side photo comparisons of Hong Kong protesters occupying the city’s Legislative Council Complex in July 2019 with Wednesday’s Washington riots.

The latter saw hardcore Trump fans invade the US Capitol to protest the election defeat, taking selfies, scuffling with security and ransacking parts of the building.

“@SpeakerPelosi once referred to the Hong Kong riots as ‘a beautiful sight to behold’,” the Global Times said in the tweet, referring to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s June 2019 comment about Hong Kong’s mass pro-democracy demonstrations, which were mostly peaceful at that time.

“It remains yet to be seen whether she will say the same about the recent developments in Capitol Hill.”

China’s Communist Youth League also described the unrest as a “beautiful sight” on the Twitter-like Weibo platform.

The hashtag
“Trump supporters storm US Capitol” pinballed across Weibo on Thursday, racking up 230 million views, as users compared the global support for Hong Kong’s protesters with the outpouring of condemnation for the pro-Trump mob.

“At present, all European countries’ leaders have shown double standards and condemned it (Washington rioting),” read one Weibo comment which gained over 5,000 likes.

“I don’t know what kind of double-standard reports will be carried by Hong Kong or Taiwan media this time.”

“What happened in the Hong Kong Legislative Council last year is being repeated in the US Capitol,”
wrote another user in a comment with over 4,500 likes.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said National Identification Number (NIN) holders will have to pay N15,000 to correct their dates of birth in the commission’s database.

NIMC Regional Coordinator, Mrs Funmi Opesanwo, stated this on Wednesday at the commission’s office in Alausa, Lagos State.

According to her, NIN holders would be required to pay a N5,000 processing fee for card renewal or card replacement, as well as an address modification fee of N500.

Opesanwo reiterated that NIN enrolment is free, but card renewal, correction of date of birth, and change of address attract fees.

She said,
“For the date of birth correction, there is a processing fee of N15,000.

“For card renewal or card replacement, there is a processing fee of N5,000. For the modification of address or name, it is N500. So, people misconstrue this to mean that in NIMC they are asking them to pay money. No, those are for services.”

Opesanwo noted that the fees are payable to the Treasury Single Account of the Federal Government.

“For correction of date of birth, it is N15,000 and it is payable to the TSA,”
she added.

Ondo State Police Command has arrested a man, Wasiu Mamukuyomi, for allegedly conniving with his girlfriend, Temitope Adeniyi, to steal his three-month-old baby at the Oke Bola area of Ondo town.

It was learned that the incident happened last Saturday after the man introduced his mistress to his wife as the girlfriend of one of his friends.

The baby’s mother, Mrs. Stella Babatunde, who narrated the incident, said the suspect was introduced to her by her husband to learn fashion designing, not knowing that she was his girlfriend.

“My husband brought the lady (Adeniyi) to me on December 3, 2020 to train her in tailoring. But I later noticed that the lady and my husband usually communicate on the phone whenever we were together in the shop.

“On Saturday, January 2, 2021, the lady came to the shop as usual. After bathing my baby girl that afternoon, she took permission from me to put the baby on her back. I later gave her my ATM card to help me withdraw N3,000 that was transferred to my account by a customer at a nearby PoS stand.
“Since then, she never returned, as she escaped with the newborn baby and my ATM card. After some hours that she did not return with my baby, I put a call to my husband several times to inform him about the incident, but my husband refused to pick my calls.

“When my husband came back from work, he did not show any concern for the missing baby. It was at that point that we invited the police to arrest him. He was later taken to the Enuowa Police Station in Ondo, where he confessed that the lady in question was his girlfriend.

“He also confessed that he rented a room apartment for the lady at the Eweje area of Yaba, Ondo, but denied knowing anything about the disappearance of the child,”
she said.

Speaking to journalists on Tuesday, Ondo state police spokesman, Tee- Leo Ikoro, said the stolen baby had been recovered alive from the suspect.

Ikoro added that the police had arrested the father of the baby and the girlfriend, adding that investigation had commenced into the matter.

We had also reported how a trader identified as Ifeanyi Nwagboroga fled after stabbing his lover, Faith Ebubeeze, to death in their apartment over N400,000 breakup fees.

15  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Minister Battling Covid 19 Which She Celebrated As God’s Punishment Against Western Nations on: 6-01-2021 12:13 PM

Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri, Zimbabwe’s Defence Minister, who reportedly said the ravaging Coronavirus was God’s punishment to western nations has tested positive for the virus.

Kashiri in March 2020 had gleefully proclaimed that the disease was God’s divine retribution against western countries for imposing economic sanctions on Zimbabwe.

United States President Donald Trump was singled out in the minister’s bizarre tirade. When the Minister made the startling claims, the disease was yet to hit Zimbabwe.

“Coronavirus is the work of God punishing countries that imposed sanctions on us. They are now keeping indoors. Their economies are screaming just like they did to ours. Trump should know that he is not God.”
Local publication, Zim Morning Post reported that Muchinguri-Kashiri contracted the disease and now undergoing treatment in the capital.

The publication reports that other senior government officials who are currently battling Covid-19 include, Manicaland Provincial Affairs Minister Ellen Gwaradzimba and former Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) boss, retired Major-General Paradzai Zimondi.

Zimbabwe has since recorded 17,194 Covid-19 cases and 418 deaths. The government has also imposed a 30-day national lockdown following a spike in COVID-19 cases, which have been termed the “Second Wave.”

The Nigeria Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC) has announced a new electricity tariff hike of 50%.

The new tariff regime takes effect from the 1st of January and to be complied with by customers of the 11 electricity Distribution Companies.

The new tariff is contained in the revised Multi-Year Tariff Order (MYTO) signed by the new Chairman of NERC, Engr. Sanusi Garba dated 30th of December, 2020.

According to the NERC, the 14.9% inflation rate rise in November 2020, foreign exchange of N379.4/$1 as of December 29, 2020, available generation capacity, US inflation rate of 1.22% and the Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) of the power firms resulted in the new tariff.

It would be recalled that the last tariff hike by the government almost led to the shutdown of the country by the Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress until a parley between the unions and a government resolved the impasse with some concessions on both sides.

The Committee headed by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo promised among other things distribution of prepaid meters and others.

The clergyman stated this during the inauguration of the remodeled foyer of the University of Lagos’ Senate Building on Monday, January 4.

Olukoya said many Nigerians still don’t believe that the infectious virus was real. He added that as a microbiologist, he was certain that the virus is real and should not be joked with.

He further urged the government to mount an awareness campaign to convince Nigerians that the virus is real.

He said,

“The first thing is to convince the populace that it is real because some people don’t believe it exists. But I am a man of God and I have prayed for so many people with the same infirmity and I know that it exists. So, we should not joke with it. People should obey all the rules. And most importantly, we should pray that this pandemic will go away”.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Univerity, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, thanked Olukoya for being a worthy alumnus of the university.

Ogundipe stated that Olukoya had donated a research laboratory to the university and obliged his request for support to remodel the foyer last year.

20  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / 16 Yrs Mayowa Who Accused Ogun Commissioner Of Sexual Harassment Wants Matter Laid To Rest on: 4-01-2021 03:27 PM

A 16-year-old girl, Melojeuekun Barakat Mayowa, who accused the Ogun State Commissioner for Environment, Abiodun Abudu-Balogun of sexual harassment, appears to be making a u-turn on the case.

This is as she recorded another video wherein she was seen saying there was misconception and misunderstanding between her and the commissioner.

Mayowa’s video is coming few hours after the Ogun State Government announced the suspension of Abudu-Balogun to enable him cooperate fully with the investigation being carried out by the police.

According to the short video, Mayowa appreciated everyone who has shown supports about the case.

In a dramatic twist, she appealed that the case be allowed to rest.

“I want to use this opportunity to appeal to meaningful Nigerians to please allow this matter to rest,”
she said.

It was reported on Saturday that the teenager, Mayowa had in a video accused the Commissioner of enticing her with money, saying he pressed her Bosom s and caressed her against her consent.

She also said the suspended Commissioner recited some incantation as he allegedly tried to place his hand on her head.

But, Abudu-Balogun has debunked the allegations, describing it as mere political blackmail.

The police have since commenced an investigation into the case by inviting Abudu-Balogun to Abigi police station in Ogun Waterside Local Government.
