Pastor Joshua Adah Murdered By Fulani Herdsman

Fulani herdsmen on Friday, January 23, killed a father of two in Taraba state whose pastoral ministry had brought education, medicine and clothing to thousands of impoverished people.

Reports state that Pastor Joshua Adah was returning from his mission station in Bantaje, a village near Jalingo, from an evangelistic outreach to some villagers when his car broke down.

A police spokesman for the Taraba State Command, Joseph Kwaji told journalists that, "The pastor's car broke down at Chediya on his return from Kogi. He then phoned his mechanic at Jalingo to help him fix the car. When the mechanic arrived, the two men agreed to hire a vehicle at nearby Dan Anacha, which would toll the car to Jalingo."

According to Kwaji, "the mechanic upon return to the scene could not find the pastor", adding that "after a thorough search, his body was found in the area".

Pastor Adah is survived by his wife and two children, ages 8 and 6. His widow said that he was "mercilessly hacked to death."

He had left the comforts of city life to start a boarding school in a round hut that provided free education to a student population that grew to more than 400 pupils.

Here's What Satguru Maharaj Ji Has To Say About Women In Politics

Spiritual leader of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji, believes that women should not hold important political positions, as it leads to confusion and ineffective policy formulation.

Speaking to Nigerian Tribune, he said that, "Women must not lead. If a woman is a governor, what do you address her, 'first man', or 'first lady man'. It is there in the Bible and Qu'ran. Even the Bible said, women must not lead in the church. They are to play secondary roles. Look at Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Coordinating Minister of the Economy, look at the policies being made.

"In Liberia, there is confusion because a woman is the president. What do you expect? They may vie for other positions but governorship and presidency is a no-go area for women."

Abuja Residents Reveal Why They Cheat on Their Spouses

File photo.
Some married people in Abuja have identified the need for material possession as the major reason for infidelity among married couples.

Respondents in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, also mentioned the desire to satisfy emotional needs as another contributory factor.

Mr Johnson Eze, a civil servant, said he was cheating on his wife not because he loved her less but for the sole purpose of "catching some fun".

He said: "My marriage is one of the best because my wife, who is God-given, is an understanding woman and she tolerates me a lot.

"Yet, I still find myself cheating on her just for the fun of it. This does not in any way diminish the love I have for her and my lovely kids.

"I recall an incident that happened some time ago. I told my wife that I was travelling to Calabar for an official assignment, but ended up with my girlfriend in a hotel, and she found out.

"The incident almost destroyed my home but thanks to God my wife was able to forgive and forget put the ugly incident behind," he said.

Eze, who described infidelity as 'a careless act,' advised men to desist from it.

A female boutique operator, who pleaded anonymity, said the desire to keep up with the latest fashion trend made her to cheat on her husband.

According to her, the husband, a low income earner, was financially incapable of meeting her insatiable material needs.

"Besides, my hubby and I fight over things that are not relevant and I lie to him most times to raise extra cash to buy something, which he considers unnecessary.

"I have not been faithful in my marriage because of the temptation to stay on top of the fashion trend which is way beyond the financial capacity of my husband.

"Besides the extra cash my boyfriend gives me, whenever I want to collect money from my husband for food stuff and other basic necessities I always double the cost.

"This has become a habit for me and whenever I don’t get my share in any shopping I do on behalf of the family, I get angry and pick on my husband at any little provocation," she added.

A legal practitioner who offered a coined name - Mr Kosi Chiemela - blamed his adulterous actions on lack of intimacy, emotional disconnection and lack of friendship with his wife.

Chiemela who described marriage as "one difficult school you cannot graduate from till you die," stated that the only way to escape was to stay single.

"I am a temperamental person and when I newly got married, it was not easy for my wife whose temper is also short.

"Both of us hardly agree on anything and the only escape route for me is to seek love and affection elsewhere.

"My girlfriend understands me and she tolerates a lot, unlike my wife who blows up like a bomb at the slightest provocation," he said.

Guys, How To Get Her Thinking About You

There is something both romantic and enduring about the thought of invading a woman's mind so much that you linger there. Yet, having such a deep impression that a woman just can't stop thinking about you all day long (and all night) isn't easy. So, what can you do to make her think about you when you aren't around? Follow these 10 tips and you'll be sure to pop up in her mind more often than not.

1. Make her laugh: Making a woman laugh is the most powerful way to keep her thinking about you and wanting to spend more time with you. Women are always drawn to guys who have a sense of humor, just as long as it doesn't hurt them emotionally or physically.

2. Have a distinctive scent: Women have a keener sense of smell than men, so having a distinctive scent that she recognizes as yours will create a series of positive associations with you and evoke memories like nothing else can.

3. Don't be an open book: Early in the relationship, keep mystery in dealings with her. Give the relationship time to simmer, hold back some of your best qualities, and build suspense so you always keep her guessing when it comes to what kind of man you are.

4. Use uncertainty to your advantage: It makes sense that if something is uncertain we think about it more. After you had a fantastic date, you can call her to check in for a minute, but don't go on and on about how much you like her. Tell her you had a great time, and refrain from calling her the next day. By not showing all of your feelings at the very beginning and creating a bit of uncertainty about how much you like her, she will be lead to wonder if you're thinking of her as much as she’s thinking of you.

5. Always leave her wanting more: One of the best ways to stay on a woman's mind is to end every interaction you share together on a high note. For example, towards the end of your date, plant a big, passionate and overwhelming kiss on her–and then call it a night. It will keep her wanting more since you’re the one to end the evening, and she will have you on her mind for the rest of the night.

6. Be a challenge to her: Don't be the desperate, needy, and always-eager-to-please guy. Come across as a powerful guy, who has a lot going on his life. Being elusive and busy will actually help to impress you upon her memory a lot more than being available the moment she texts or calls.

7. Test her a bit: Frame yourself as the selector and make her work for your approval. Not only will this help you keep the power in the relationship on your side, but it will also build up the attraction much faster and make her think about you more than usual.

8. Throw in thoughtful surprises: Maybe when she arrives in her office one morning, there are flowers or a box of her favorite chocolates waiting for her– just because. Surprises like this would leave a smile on her face along with indelible memories of you.

9. Give her something personal: Giving her a gift or an item of yours is the perfect way to make sure you stay in her thoughts. It can be a teddy bear you won her at the carnival, a shirt of yours that smells of you, or a framed photo of the two of you at a restaurant on your first date. If she has something nearby and always in her sight that reminds her of you, then she is guaranteed to think of you even more.

10. Be the last thing she thinks about at night: As the relationship matures, make a habit of giving her goodnight calls before you know she’s about to go to bed. If your voice is the last thing she hears before she goes to bed, the chances of you lingering on her thoughts way beyond the waking hours will be enhanced.
