7 Signs That You Are Not Having Enough Sex

1. Thinking of Other People

Sex is a basic human need. When people don’t get it from their spouse, they just might seek it from someone else. Sometimes, this might be as seemingly innocent as fantasizing about a celebrity or fictional character. However, it’s a dangerous path that can eventually lead to a real-world affair.

2. Frequent Fights

Do you and your spouse seem to be fighting more and more ever since the sex dried up? This can be a consequence of unresolved sexual frustration that results in anger and irritability. Naturally, the pent-up stress and sexual energy have to go somewhere, so they get expressed through hostility.

3. Emotional Distance

In many animals, sex is used for more than just procreation. It also serves as a means of reinforcing bonds. It’s no different in humans. Sex helps to strengthen and reaffirm emotional attachments between partners. Infrequent sex allows these ties to weaken, and both individuals can become emotionally distant from one another.

Ayiri Emami Urges Buhari to End Amnesty Program for Ex Militants

Ex Niger Delta militant and new APC  billionaire stalwart Ayiri Emami, has called on President-elect Muhammadu Buhari to scrap the ongoing amnesty programme initiated by the late President Umaru Yar’Adua for ex-militants of the Niger Delta.

Emami, now a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State and a former Itsekiri warlord, said on Thursday that Buhari should also probe the operations of the Amnesty Programme.

“If the layman’s understanding of the word amnesty is anything to go by, then it presupposes an arrangement where militants who genuinely turn in all their arms and ammunition are rehabilitated, re-oriented and trained with a view to reintegrating them to everyday societal living.

“In the ordinary sense of it, any person or group that picks up arms in the name of struggle or agitation ought to have been treated as terrorists, hence nobody or group should take the gesture of the federal government for granted.

“Amnesty should not be continuous; partially giving out money to youths from a particular ethnic nationality is wrong, sending some of them abroad for training without any visible impact on the Niger Delta and the nation at large is counter-productive,” he said.

His declaration was obviously in reaction to a recent call by the Ijaw Youth Council, demanding the continuation of the Amnesty Programme for Niger Delta youths.

APC Will Win Entire South-East in 2019 – Rochas Okorocha

Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, on Thursday said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would take the entire South-East in 2019 general elections.

NAN reports that Okorocha gave the assurance while speaking with newsmen at the end of his closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Defence House in Abuja. He claimed that the region played a key role in Buhari’s victory in the just-concluded general elections compared to 2011 general elections.
“The South-East played a very key role in the victory of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, considering what happened in 2011 when the Peoples Democratic Party returned about seven million votes. We came to reassure him that in the next dispensation, the entire South-East will be APC,’’ he said.
The governor expressed optimism that the region would advance under Buhari’s leadership,

Maltreated, Exploited And Confused: A Sad Blog Reader Needs Your Help

‘’I am 21 years old; I came to the city early this year to look for a source of livelihood. Before I embarked on this journey, I pleaded with my (married) cousin to allow me stay with his family. He agreed and even offered to help me secure a job (since I was yet to gain admission into the University) but since then; he has neither found the job for me nor talked about it. I assist his wife with domestic chores-even cooking for them (not minding that she is a house wife), they do not even provide my needs (my family’s economic situation is not encouraging at the moment). 
I am serving them with the hope that they would want to be contributing to my school expenses when I gain admission into the University eventually. Whenever my cousin’s wife sends me to the market to buy foodstuffs, the ‘message’(to go to the market) will come with an instruction that I should start cooking as soon as I am back from the market and only disturb her when I am done with the cooking. She tells me that I am a good cook. Last week (Monday), I went to the market, came back and started cooking, as usual. When I was through with the cooking, I went to inform her. She became so angry and insulted me thoroughly, asking ‘who made me her cook’. I became depressed afterwards and refused to eat. She reacted by isolating her children from me (she would not let them play with me) and she started handling the cooking by herself. 
She has threatened to kick me out of her house. Now, I am frustrated because she does not allow me to handle any chores in the house any more, she only gives me food when she pleases. Sometimes, I am made to understand that the food that was left open in the kitchen (with flies all over it) is mine. I am awaiting the University admission list to be released. My spirit is troubled. 
Please advise me on what to do because I am very confused and depressed now. If I leave their house because of the way she has been treating me, I do not think I will get a dime from them to pay my school fees. I do not want to make any mistakes (that will cause me my education) with them. The husband (my cousin) is aware of what’s going on. He even called me stupid."

Outrage in Adamawa After Gov. Bala Spends N400M on 4 Cars

The decision of the Adamawa state governor, Bala Ngilari to buy two Lexus SUVs for N180million ($900,000) and two Hilux pick up vans at N400million, has triggered outrage from members of the state House of Assembly.

On Wednesday, the members passed a resolution calling on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to probe the purchases.

The House, now split into factions, called on the state government to re-instate the sacked Director General of the state Public Procurement Bureau, Malam Bello Umar, who it said was sacked by the Governor for querying the purchase and for not following due process.

Deputy Speaker, Kwamoti Laori, told the house that the state government had sacked the Director General of the state Public Procurement Bureau after whistle-blowing on the executive recklessness.

Laori also claimed the Lexus cars were used ones.

While a used Lexus armoured car can go for about $120,000, a new one usually sells for less than $200,000, online research shows, PM News reports.

Boko Haram Allegedly Heading to South Africa to Bomb Them For Killing Nigerians

The dreaded Boko Haram insurgents has been spotted in Zimbabwe in transit to South Africa, according to reports by UK-based news outlet ZimEye, citing Zimbabwe’s national intelligence agency.

According to the Zimbabwean news website, the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) issued an intelligence report, warning that the Islamist militant group is in Zimbabwe en route to neighbouring South Africa.

ZimEye added that the South African intelligence service has alerted police officers in Zimbabwe’s Matebeleland region about Boko Haram’s intentions to infiltrate South Africa.

Other Zimbabwean media outlets have picked up the story. One outlet, Harare24, claims, “Officers were yesterday called for duty at around 9pm and are now temporarily stationed at selected police stations where they camp.”

iHarare reports that police spokespersons have not responded to a request for clarification on the original ZimEye report, and official statements from the government of Zimbabwe regarding Boko Haram’s potential presence in Zimbabwe do not appear to exist.

The Matebeleland region borders South Africa, where the jihadist group may seek to “carry out revenge attacks for the ill-treatment of several Nigerian nationals in the ongoing xenophobic attacks” that have left seven people dead and displaced thousands more from their homes, notes the news website.

Boko Haram released propaganda this month threatening to kill South Africans in retribution for the wave of xenophobic violence affecting Nigerians and others in that nation, though it was believed that Boko Haram members would find and kill South Africans in the areas where they operate: Northeast Nigeria, Chad and Cameroon.

Boko Haram reportedly released a video nearly two weeks ago urging South Africa to end the xenophobic attacks taking place within its borders.

Zimbabwe’s online news outlet iHarare reports that in the video, which has not yet been verified as authentic, Boko Haram warned that it would execute all South Africans in Nigeria, Chad, Niger, and other surrounding countries if the government of South Africa failed to contain the situation.
