Here are the winners and losers from the election held in Ondo State

inec-box

As the dust settles from the Ondo elections, it is time to pick the winners and losers!

The winners

APC: Now, the ruling party has added Ondo to its kitty, bringing the number of governorships it controls to 23 out of 36 states. They also have 5 of 6 South-West states, and surely the Ekiti governorship is the next in their sights in 2018.

Rotimi Akeredolu: On his second attempt, the Owo-born lawyer has become governor. After his defeat in 2012, he strategized and got closer to the people he wanted to lead, built his networks and got the trust of the people. The result is a strong mandate to lead for the next four years.

Buhari: You can spin the win in Ondo and retaining the Edo governorship as indications that the President’s popularity is still strong, despite the poor state of the economy. The reality is of course, quite different, as all politics is local. However, expect a government media aide on a Twitter TL near you to cite those two elections as signs of the President’s popularity.

Ayo Fayose: Even though his party lost the election, there is an upside for Ayo Fayose. He is now unchallenged in his quest to lead what remains of the PDP in the South-West. His main challenge would have come in the shape of Olusegun Mimiko, but his failure to install Eyitayo Jegede is fatal to his political relevance.

The losers

PDP: Internal divisions in their party have made them unable to fully compete. Until a few days before the election, Jimoh Ibrahim, representing the Modu-Sheriff faction, was the flagbearer until successive rulings of the Appeal Court and Supreme Court. The result was that Eyitayo Jegede did not have the time necessary to fully campaign, and the party paid the price.

Olusola Oke: Olusola Oke has spent a long time seeking to govern his people in Ondo. He contested on the PDP ticket in 2012 and lost to the incumbent Olusegun Mimiko. Then he was forced out of the party by Mimiko who decamped to the PDP in 2014, and he joined APC in 2015. He contested in the primaries but lost out to Akeredolu. He went to the AD to contest and still lost. If he will try again is anyone’s guess.

Olusegun Mimiko: The mighty Iroko of Ondo politics has been felled by Akeredolu and the APC. Having failed to install his successor, unlike Adams Oshiomhole, he will now proceed into political irrelevance. Hindsight is 2020, but owing workers in his state for 9 months was a bad idea, and caused voters to abandon the PDP in droves.

Bola Tinubu: Asiwaju wanted Olusegun Abraham, but those against his candidate imposition removed then Ondo APC chairman, Isaac Kekemeke, and postponed the primaries twice, to ensure Tinubu’s man didn’t win. All the word on the street was that he was backing Olusola Oke, but Oke has also lost. After Akeredolu’s was declared the winner on Sunday, he released a statement congratulating him and called for party unity. Let’s see how long that will last.

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

How Pen.!s changes with age?

Length

When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.

Enjoyment

It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.

Looks

You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party

party

You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol

alcohol

Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house

That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her

She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
