Half Naked Ekiti Women Protest

The uncertainty and protests that have trailed Saturday’s rerun governorship election in Ekiti State took another dimension on Wednesday, as a group of women clad in white attires protested round Ado-Ekiti, half-dressed. - By Akin Oyedele

Tagged, “Peace rally in support of democracy in Nigeria,” the protesters gathered under the aegis of Ekiti Women for Peace and Development.

They were led by a former Commissioner for Women Affairs in the state, Chief Ronke Okusanya, while the deputy governorship candidate of the Action Congress, Mrs. Funmilayo Olayinka and wife of the governorship candidate, Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, joined the procession.

More than 300 women, comprising the young and the elderly, took part in the protest over the delay in announcing the governorship candidate of the AC, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, as the winner of the governorship election.

As early as 8am, the protesters had begun to mass at the popular Fajuyi Park in their tens from parts of the state, which grew into a crowd by 10am when the protest march began.
While more than 20 elderly women among the group, whose ages ranged between 60 and 80 years went half-dressed, the youths protested with their clothes on.

The procession moved from Fajuyi to Oke-Iyinmi roundabout and later to the AC secretariat in Ajilosun, with the police following them to prevent the rally from being hijacked.
The protesters, who sang anti-Peoples Democratic Party’s songs and chorused “Eeye o” waved white handkerchiefs to onlookers who cheered them on.

Some of the placards hoisted by the women read, “VP Jonathan, stop your imposition on Ekiti rerun; Prof. Iwu, fear God; Fayemi won the election, INEC no magomago; Iwu be warned; Ayoka Adebayo, heroine of democracy.”

At the Oke-Iyinmi roundabout, 10 of the half-dressed women caused a stir when they formed a separate group to perform a rite, in which they were heard appeasing the gods of the land.
While the rite lasted, the women rained curses on all anti-democratic forces and those disrupting the peace of the state.

The convener of the rally, Okusanya, said that the women decided to add their voice to the ding-dong that had become the lot of the governorship rerun since Saturday when the election was held.
Okusanya, who is also the woman leader of the AC in the state, said that the women were AC members drawn across the state and concerned senior citizens who were fed up with the antics of INEC.

Having allegedly collated the results of the rerun, she said that the embattled Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mrs. Olusola Adebayo, should be allowed to complete the assignment by announcing the winner.
She said, “Non-release of the result is an ingredient for chaos and violence. The women of Ekiti are in full support of Adebayo to be allowed an unfettered atmosphere to do her job.”


OMG, I've never seen this before in Nigeria. These women are obviously very angry. There's a lot of craziness going on in Ekiti State, I just hope their protest yields some positive results...but most unlikely huh?

I hear Action Congress is already demanding the resignation of our President, Musa Yar'adua, the Inspector General of Police, Mike Okiro and the INEC Chairman, Maurice Iwu. But we all know that's wishful thinking.

May God intervene...

Alexander Amosu + Mr and Mrs Julius Agwu's Birthday Pix

I read an article some days ago about a designer who created the world's most expensive suit...and actually sold the suit to a mystery buyer for the mentioned $101,860 price tag.

Here's the article below...

Recession. What recession? By Catey Hill, Daily News staff writer

There doesn't appear to be one affecting designer Alexander Amosu, who has created the world's most expensive suit.
The suit is valued at $103,000.
It took more than 80 hours and 5,000 stitches to produce, according to LuxuryLaunches.com.
OK, but what makes the price tag leap over the six-figure mark?
The suit includes nine 18-carat gold and pave diamond buttons.
It is made from vicuna, which is a South American camel-like animal, that produces a very rare wool, BornRich.com says.
Oh, and its one-of-a-kind (of course).

Y'all know what caught my attention? The designer is a Nigerian! Can't believe I'd never heard of him until some days ago...Check out Alexander Amosu's achievements to Date:

Joke of the day
Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day
In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days.
The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.
The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."
The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."

LOL
Peace out!

Jokes
WIFE VS. HUSBAND
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument andneither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?' 'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'


W O R D S
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'


CREATION
A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can beso stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. ' The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain.God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

WHO DOES WHAT
A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, 'You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.' The husband said, ' You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.' Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.' Husband replies, 'I can't believe that, show me.' So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........'HEBREWS'

The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.' Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.
