My own little problem with him remains his continued use of Islam to defend his tastes. In all honesty, given that his actions are quite legal, he doesn’t need that mask.
Good morning, and in the Nigerian parlance, happy new month. First off, I want to apologise for the rather long absence. The people who actually pay me decided to put me to good use for a change, and well, the end of the month was around the corner. Now that the pay has hit the account, I can go back to faffing around. Sorry boss.
Speaking of people who spend their time twiddling their thumbs for a living, my favourite Senator, Haji Yerima, seems to be picking up a lot of the headlines recently. In a chat with AIT, he quite reasonably, pointed out that boinking thirteen year old girls is not exactly illegal in our land, something I have repeated quite a lot, The Nigerian Criminal Code in Part III, Chapter 27, Section 281 for those of you who do not know. Yerima went ahead to point out, with quite a stunning degree of accuracy, that boinking 13-year-olds is not illegal in assorted places such as Spain either.
My own little problem with him remains his continued use of Islam to defend his tastes. In all honesty, given that his actions are quite legal, he doesn’t need that mask. But what do I know? And frankly, given the reasonableness displayed in yesterday’s interview, I wouldn’t mind sharing a beer with him one of these days…
Meanwhile, in unrelated news, an unnamed five year old proved sharper than any of Haji Yerima’s wives.
