'I'm a virgin and i have no tolerance for homophobic people,' the cross dresser, Bayo reveals in a new Post on LIB







Why most of you are busy forming fine boys and fine girls, someone is  spending fortune getting popular....lol.  Last week, precisely September 13th. I reported how  a Nigerian cross dresser Bayo, took the internet with his somewhat annoying photos(read here). He has come back with yet another sponsored  mouth opening photos and a letter exclusively on LIB.  In his letter to haters, he says that he is still a virgin and has no tolerance for homophobic people. Read his letter after the photos:

 

'My life is fairly bland, but it belongs to me, I'm not popular but my friends are more than enough, saying and doing what I want and when I want. I can hide my emotions better than anyone I know. I fight, face and destroy, standing up for what I believe in. I have no tolerance for rude, racist and homophobic people.'
' I won't admit my faults but I do know I make mistakes, I am the sunrise after a sleepless night blinding your eyes. If we acknowledge that physical appearance is your primary scale value, we have to acknowledge and respect everyone's choice in life as equals because if everyone is beautiful or everyone can be beautiful or everyone is beautiful to someone it's okay to base our entire civilization on hot or Not.'
 'I'm a virgin... I am one of a kind that's me, I am quite a find with a mix of colour in my hair, a twinkle in my eyes, oh don't you see? I can catch a ball and perform talents because I know I got greatness within me.'
 'I can dance a jig and still do a dab, watch me learn and watch me grow. I can act, Did you know? I am unique and wonderful , I am simply Me. I don't care what you say about me, its just that you are not as good as me.'
 
I am a model, Did you know? There is a better way of looking at your critics .Tell them you are not who they say you are but you are what you are. I want to go out with my head erect.'
 'I want to deserve all men's respect, I want to be able to title myself now to everyone out there. say to yourselves "I am the best" I am legend. Remember "CONFESSION is POSSESSION.

Dear Romeo I am no Juliet, I am simply Me......BAYO. Anyone who can't see the good in me, I am hugging them right now because I know its quite difficult being blind....! '

Recession: Obiano suspends all taxes and levies on wheel barrow pushers, hawkers and others

Image result for Recession: Anambra state governor suspends taxes and levies on wheel barrow pushers, hawkers, others


As part of efforts to cushion the harsh effects of the current economic recession, the governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano, yesterday, announced the immediate suspension of sale of emblems, collection of wheel barrow tax and hawkers permit in all parts of the state. Governor Obiano announced this in a broadcast entitled ‘Rising from the brink,’ yesterday September 21st.

He said his administration had lowered Okada and Keke levies to N50 and N200 daily respectively to cushion the effect of the recession.

“I am happy to announce to you that I have come up with a stimulus package that will ease the pain of the recession and help our dear state bounce back to prosperity. I want to assure you that the government of Anambra State is fully aware of the difficulties you are going through in your families, in your businesses and in your various communities . I wish to assure you that you are not alone. I feel your pain. Our country’s painful journey into the current recession is fairly known to us. The events that triggered this decline are very well documented in the public domain. I wish to assure you that after a careful study of the situation,I am more convinced now than ever before that with our fundamentals, our infinite capacity to come back from deficits and our implicit faith in God, our story should be different in Anambra State.  
Consequently, our intervention which comes in four key areas which are tax relief programme, special intervention programmes for Small and Medium Enterprises, MSMEs and Large Enterprises, social intervention programme for low income households and intervention in infrastructure-for-jobs. The objective of the tax relief programme is to evaluate existing taxes, levies and fees in the state and introduce some waivers and in some cases, scrap the collection of some illegal levies imposed on our people to cushion the impact of the recession on households in the state. Next is the special intervention programme for Small and Medium Enterprises, MSMEs and large enterprises. This sector of the economy accounts for over 800,000 jobs in Anambra State today. These businesses are suffering from the acute drop in the supply of foreign exchange at the moment and are left with two options; scale down their operations or shut down completely. My role as your governor is to envisage challenges and provide solutions that will ensure a speedy comeback from difficult situations that require the power and might of a state government.  
This is what my administration has done in the past two years through Anambra Small Business Agency. This agency is a very important institution I created to serve as a catalyst to our domestic economy. So far, ASBA has effectively distributed the sum of N1.5bn as start-up capital to many SMEs and MSMEs in Anambra State. These funds are part of the N2bn that the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, made available to states about two years ago to help stimulate local entrepreneurship across the country.”he said

Osinbajo Shifts Blame Again by Reno Omokri

Image result for vp osinbajo

Reno Omokri was a spokesman to former President Goodluck Jonathan
Read his piece below...

How we respond to an issue is in many cases more important than the issue itself. And one such issue is the current economic travails Nigeria is currently grappling with.The response to this issue is definitely more important than the issue itself and will determine how long we remain in the sinkhole with our economy.What our leaders have unfortunately failed to realize is that how we got into this situation is not as important as how we will get out of it it and if we must look backwards it must be for the purpose of learning how we got to our present situation and not for the reason of searching for scapegoats.There is no virtue in looking for blame. The virtue is in looking for solutions. That is what an executive must preoccupy itself with. The apportioning of blame is the preserve of the judiciary. Leave that to them.

After blaming the current economic crash of the economy on former President Goodluck Jonathan on multiple occasions, I was shocked to read in today's (Tuesday the 20th of September, 2016) papers a direct statement by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in which he blamed Nigeria's economic recession on Niger Delta Militants.m

The vice President, while speaking at the maiden meeting of the Presidential Quarterly Business Forum on Monday the 19th of September, 2016 said “If we did not have vandalism in the Niger Delta as we are currently suffering, we will not have this recession today."

Now do not get me wrong, I do not speak for, advocate for or encourage any militants group in Nigeria's Niger Delta or in any other theaters of belligerency in any part of the world. On the contrary, I am a pastor and preacher of the peaceful message of the one and only Prince of peace, Jesus the Messiah, yet I must say that Vice President Osinbajo's comments betray a very serious character issue that may affect his capacity to assist President Muhammadu Buhari in piloting the affairs of Nigeria.

Why do I say so? Well, for one, Nigerians have been regaled with multiple statements from Mr. Osinbajo himself, his boss and their mouthpieces in which they blamed Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for Nigeria's economic recession.

The latest attempt to pin the blame on Dr. Jonathan came via an article by Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, entitled 'What is President Buhari doing with the economy?'

Said Garba Shehu “Believe me; episodes from the Jonathan era can fill books, and other possibilities, such as courtroom drama thriller." Going further, Mr. Shehu declared that "The current pain is due to the mismanagement of the past."

And now today, Mr. Shehu's 'cousin in office' (to borrow a phrase that Garba Shehu himself used to describe the relationship between Dr. Reuben Abati and I) has contradicted him and said it is no longer former President Goodluck Jonathan that is to blame but Niger Delta militants.

Please, can this administration make up its mind? Choose a story and stick to it. Choose a scape goat and stick with him.

I will not be surprised if tomorrow they blame Mr. Chinakwe, the man who was sent to prison and is right now facing prosecution for naming his dog after his hero, President Buhari, for the recession.

The truth does not shift. You cannot have one truth today and another truth tomorrow. Truth is as stable as a rock. And one would think that Professor Yemi Osinbajo, himself a pastor, would know it.

What you are is always more important than what you can do. Your character is what you are. Your skill is what you can do. It is important to know the difference because if your skill takes you to a height and you do not develop your character to match that height, you will come crashing down!

Mr. Osinbajo's skill as a legal professional  par excellence has taken him to such heights from a professor to a commissioner and now to the Vice President of Nigeria. But if pastor Osinbajo does not have the character to tell the inconvenient truth to his new boss and to the nation he now leads as a co pilot, then this character flaw may very well be the undoing of their joint administration.

And what is the truth?

Well, without mincing words, the truth is that the major reason for the crash of the Nigerian economy is not any alleged mismanagement by former President Goodluck Jonathan or the Peoples Democratic Party (to be sure, they were not perfect and had their flaws) but that for six months President Muhammadu Buhari did not appoint ministers in a nation where nothing substantial gets done at ministries, departments, agencies, parastatals or embassies without ministers giving the nod.

And before pastor Osinbajo sends his media hounds to argue with me, I suggest he leave his car unattended for six minutes without a driver in the middle of Third Mainland bridge and see if it does not crash. If he survives the experience, then by all means he can send his hounds to come and take me on!

But there is an even deeper reason for why Nigeria is experiencing this unprecedented economic recession and that is that even when President Buhari eventually came around to constituting his cabinet, he peopled it with individuals whose capacity to deliver the goods is at best suspect.

Let me elucidate this with a statement made by President Buhari's minister of sports and broadcast on Channels television today Tuesday the 20th of September, 2016.

Said Mr. Solomon Dalung, 'the disabled athletes have shown that all you need is a winning mentality and not too much preparation.'

Can you imagine that coming from a minister and member of the federal executive council?

But why should we be surprised? Nigerians are witnesses to the utterances of the minister of information, the aptly named Lai Mohammed, who blamed any good thing that happened in Nigeria immediately after President Buhari's inauguration not on any form of preparation but on the President's 'body language'.

Early rains fell in obeisance to the President's body language. Barren women became fertile as a result of President Buhari's miraculous powers of non verbal communication. All kinds of orishirishi were attributed to body language.

One wonders where the fabled 'body language' was when it came to fighting the recession.

The truth is that preparation, pure preparation (that word that Mr. Dalung and other operatives of this administration hate to hear) is the only thing that can increase the likelihood of success in any venture including governance. As it is commonly said 'those who fail to plan, plan to fail'.

And the reason why Mr. Osinbajo and his co travelers will continue to shift blame from individual to individual is because they do not have the strength of character to accept responsibility for their actions.

At this juncture, it will be pertinent of me to remind Lai Mohammed of his words uttered on the 25th of May, 2014 when he said 'a government that is unwilling to take any responsibility for anything, should not be counted upon.' Right back at you Mr. Mohammed, right back at you!

President Buhari has to quickly learn that the more you blame others, the more power you surrender. The more you accept responsibility, the more power you take.

Early in 2015, Pastor Osinbajo called then President Jonathan's administration a 'visionless' government. As I end this piece, I would like to define the vision of change that Mr. Osinbajo and his boss promised us based on what we have seen so far.

Mr. Osinbajo's vision for change is defined as a sports minister who believes athletes do not need training, a finance minister who thinks recession is just a word, a science and technology minister who aspires to produce pencils in two years, an information minister who wants to generate jobs via masquerade dressing, an interior minister who uses his security to publicly shine his shoes rather than secure the interior of his country, an agriculture minister who fights for land for cows instead of farmers, a labor minister who threatens banks with revocation of license when they retrench workers due to bad economy, a communications minister who wants us to pay 9% tax on calls, a transport minister who gives one President credit for a railway built by another President, an economic adviser who wants women to donate their jewelry to help government fight recession and a Presidential spokesman who believes critics are ‘wailers’ all led by a President who believes #ChangeBeginsWithMe not him, though he was the one who promised it!
