How the Bini's in Edo Established ltsekiri Kingdom in Warri, in the 15th Century in Delta State,

ln the 15th century, the early Itsekiris adopted a prince Ginuwa (also called "Iginuwa" in Bini Language) from the Kingdom of Benin as a monarch, and quickly coalesced into a kingdom under his rule. Traditionally fishermen and traders, the Itsekiri were among the first in the region to make contact with Portuguese traders. These interactions in the 16th century led the Itsekiri to become primarily Roman Catholic. The Itsekiri monarchy has continued to the present day, with the coronation of Ogiame Ikenwoli on 12 December in 2015. The Itsekiri's historical capital is Ode-Itsekiri (also called "big warri" or "Ale iwerre"), though the monarch's main palace is in Warri town the largest city in the area and home to diverse other communities including the Urhobos, Ijaws, Isoko, and many other Nigerian and expatriate groups working in the oil and gas industry.   The Itsekiri, though a minority group within Nigeria, are considered t

Marriages: tribal factors play in choosing a spouse tribe

Mingo, writes about the roles tribal factors play in choosing a spouse Culture has always been an important part of the Nigerian society. It governs the way people live their lives. Culture encompasses many aspects of life such as language, food, religion and ways of life. Nigeria is known as the most populous African country with over 300 tribes. It is little wonder that it is referred to as the Giant of Africa. Every Nigerian citizen belongs to a tribe and members of that tribe incorporate parts of their tribal aspects in their lives including marriage. Marriage is one of the oldest institutions in the world and it involves the coming together of a man and a woman to become one. This means that the two people come together to merge not only themselves but everything relating to them plus their cultures. It is not uncommon in Nigeria to see families insisting that their children marry from their tribes. A psychologist at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Dr. Val Eze, said in the past

Are Sex Toys Sinful? 5 Christians Talk About This A Christian using sex toys? Is it an anomaly.

By Egbemavoice, Are sex toys part of the restrictions? Is it good or bad? Did the Bible say you should not use them? Sex toys, adult aids or marital aids are objects people use to masturbate or enjoy more pleasure during sex with their partner. There are finger vibrators, thrusting dildos, rabbit dildos (penetrates the vagina and the clitoris), penis rings (delays orgasm for men), nipples clamps, vibrating panties, handsfree vibrators and many more. Men also have sex toys like fleshlight shaped like a vagina but in the shape of a flashlight, different vibrators, and massagers. The Bible’s clear injunction is against adultery and fornication. Masturbation is not mentioned in the Bible as a sin, but it could be inferred. Some Christians believe that masturbation is a sin, others disagree, but what about sex with sex toys? Bimbo “Why would a single person use it? Let’s say it is to ‘relieve sexual stress or tension’ seeing ‘actual intercourse’ is not permitted to or expected of a single p

It's frustrating. "Sometimes when we try to help communities, it is difficult because of BEDC's delay.  "Even, wh

Wike: Atiku still open to dialogue - Spokesman

By Egbemavoice, Spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr Charles Aniagwu says the party’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was still open for further dialogue with Governor Nyesom Wike and his group.  Aniagwu who spoke on Arise Television on Wednesday night said Atiku's reaction to the alleged boycott of the Presidential Campaign Council by Wike's group was not a foreclosure of further reconciliation with the group and other stakeholders in the party.  He said that Atiku's call on the party to move was a call to focus on the real issues bothering Nigerians and not necessarily meant to leave any stakeholder behind.  According to Aniagwu, we don't have any faction in the party just a group with interest which is allowed democratically.  "As a party we are quite comfortable that in the course of time these issues will give way for everybody to be on board.  "Atiku didn't say its time to move on because h
