What are the killers of good relationship?

The continuous and seemingly unending waves of domestic violence and crimes committed by one party against another that has to do with maiming and murdering of another party begins from time immemorial.

The tempo of this level of deep inhumanity is totally alarming and it has its root in hatred and it’s route in human being not given premium to the sanctity of life.

Without any iota of doubt,the sanctity of human life has gone down the drain and the safety of life has become cheap which has become a source of concern to everyone existing on the earthly pedestal.

 

According to domestic violence statistics and facts from National domestic violence statistics,it is on record that:

1.National Domestic Violence Statistics

1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. (CDC, 2017)
1 in 10 women in the United States will be raped by an intimate partner in her lifetime. (CDC, 2010)
Approximately 16.9% of women and 8.0% of men will experience sexual violence other than rape by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime. (CDC, 2010)
Data on sexual violence against men may be underreported.

 

An estimated 9.7% of women and 2.3% of men have been stalked by an intimate partner during their lifetime. (CDC, 2017)
Nearly half of all women and men in the United States will experience psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime. (CDC, 2017)
Over half of female and male victims of rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner experienced some form of intimate partner violence for the first time before 25 years of age. (CDC, 2010)

 

2.Domestic Violence Statistics by Race/Ethnicity
Almost half (47.5%) of American Indian/Alaska Native women, 45.1% of non-Hispanic Black women, 37.3% of non-Hispanic White women, 34.4% of Hispanic women, and 18.3% of Asian-Pacific Islander women experience contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. (CDC, 2017)
3.Domestic Violence Statistics on Sexual Orientation
2 in 5 lesbian women, 3 in 5 bisexual women, and 1 in 3 heterosexual women will experience rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. (CDC, 2010)

From the above statistics,one could easily confirmed how fast the waves of domestic violence is eating up the fabrics of human existence sporadically.

 

The underlining factor and decimal is all about good human relationship becoming scarce and unavailable and the spread of hatred among those who claimed to be in one relationship or the other at one point in time.

 

The purpose of good human relationship is becoming defeated and it is essentially becoming a burden to those who claimed to be partners at one point or the other.

 

This makes violence by individuals against another individuals a recurring decimal frequently being a show available on a daily basis.

There is no relationship  that is expected to wear a toga of perfection but it is expected to be built gradually on tolerance but not perfection.

 

Human relationship is essentially what has been keeping humanity going without any clog and it is when good human relationship is established that essence of humanity becomes achievable without any doubt.

 

In recent years,the reverse has been the case.Relationship becomes sour,acidic and toxic with life being snuff out on a daily basis.

 

It is on this note,it become a necessity to look at what are the killers of good relationship .

WHAT ARE THE KILLERS OF GOOD RELATIONSHIP ?

Among other factors available,these are essentially some of the killers of good relationship.

1.Selfishness

2.Dishonesty.

3.Insensitivity.

4.Greed and covetousness.

5.Lack of empathy and sympathy

6.Ego and Pride.

7.Ingratitude

8.Strong-headedness and being inconsiderate.

9.Being domineering and controlling.

10.Disrespect.

These are some of the factors that eat up a good relationship that started well until it becomes a source of concern to the parties involved.

 

Such a relationship becomes sour, acidic and toxic, though it might involve a form of management for its survival but it leads to abuse and cheating when the parties involved find its management difficult and hard to control.

 

Domestic violence is real as every form of violence is real.

 

No one should wait for when it becomes energy sapping and life threatening that any reasonable mind will understand its veracity in reducing the existence of humanity.

 

Good relationship matters a lot but those who desire it must be ready to pay the price of making it work out by being selfless ,committed,dedicated and persevering in ensuring that everyone  involved becomes better in the course of the relationship .

In conclusion, anyone desiring to live a good and a meaningful life should strive to mold good relationship with like minds who understands the exigencies of good relationship.

Buhari’s meditation has led to reconciliation in Kano.

The crisis between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state and the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II may have come to an end after the duo reached a truce on Friday night, June 7, in Abuja, Daily Nigerian reports.
The newspaper reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier on Friday mediated in the matter.
President Buhari reportedly intervened following calls by northern elders as the estrangement between the governor and the emir raised tension in the state.
Legit.ng gathers that the president’s intervention comes a day to the expiration of a query issued to the emir by the state government, seeking answer on alleged misappropriation of the emirate’s finances.
At the peace meeting held on Friday night, the governor and the emir reportedly agreed to sheath the sword for the interest of Kano and prevent break down of law and order.

 

The reconciliation meeting was allegedly presided over by the chairman of Nigerian Governors’ Forum and governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi, and attended by “a very few notable personalities”, Daily Nigerian says.
“All I can tell you is that the meeting is positive. The parties have agreed to work together in the interest of peace, stability and progress of Kano,” the newspaper quoted a source at the presidency.
“The president will be briefed on the outcome of the meeting. Alhamdulillah the emir and the governor are no more quarreling.”
The newspaper also said it gathered that despite the truce, the Emir Sanusi has decided to clear his name by responding to the query of the state government regarding allegations leveled against him by the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.
Recall that the crisis had earlier been linked to Emir Sanusi’s alleged support for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Abba Yusuf, in the 2019 governorship election in the state.

Religious regulatory bill passed in Kaduna State.

The Kaduna state House of Assembly on Friday, June 7, passed the Religious Preaching Regulation bill into law.

The new Religious Preaching Regulation law substitutes similar law of 1984 in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the executive bill, brought to the Assembly in 2016, was passed hours before the eighth Assembly was dissolved on Friday.

The bill had been with the assembly three years and had been opposed by Muslim and Christian bodies as well as individuals across the state.

 

The state government had in 2016 argued the bill was meant to regulate religious preaching in order to promote religious harmony and peaceful coexistence not to stipple religious freedom.

Alhaji Aminu Shagali, speaker of the Assembly presided over the sitting during which the bill was passed after it was read clause by clause.

 

It provides for the establishment of an Interfaith Regulatory Council at the state level and committees at local government levels responsible for screening and issuing licence to preachers.

The councils will have two representatives each of Christian and Islamic bodies among other members.

According to the speaker, the new law had mandated the council to hear and determine appeals to be brought before it arising from the decision of the local government interfaith committees.

The council also has power to issue regulations considered necessary to guide the local government interfaith committees in the performance of their functions as provided under the bill, if signed into law.

“The bill when signed into law, stipulates that in each of the 23 local Government areas of the state, a committee to be known as the local government interfaith committee has to be established.

“The local government Interfaith committee shall consider and recommend to state Interfaith Regulation Council all applications for the grant of licence to religious preachers as well as screen and recommend preachers for the grant of license among other functions.

“The supplementary provision provides that all cassettes, CDs, flash drives or any other communication gadgets containing religious recordings from accredited preachers may be played inside a private dwelling unit or vehicle, entrance porch (zaure), Church, Mosque and any other designated place of worship.

“It further stated that any person who plays religious cassette or uses a loud speaker for religious purposes between the hours of 11pm to 4am in a public place, and uses a loudspeaker for religious purposes other than inside Church or Mosque commits an offence and shall on conviction be liable to imprisonment for a term of not less than two years or pay a fine of not less than N200,000 or both.”

The bill also states that any person who publicly insults or seeks to incite contempt against any religion, by making false statements in such a manner as likely lead to a breach of peace, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of not less than five years or a fine of not less than N100,000 or both.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Christians in the north, under the umbrella of Voice of Northern Christian Movement in Nigeria (VNCMN) have petitioned the United States president, Donald Trump, over alleged ethno-religious cleansing in southern Kaduna and other parts of the country.

The Christian group alleged that since the emergence of Governor Nasir El-Rufai as the Kaduna governor, violence has engulfed the erstwhile peaceful Kajuru chiefdom in Adaraland.

Theresa May starts succession race.

British Prime Minister Theresa May steps down as leader of her Conservative Party on Friday, formally triggering the race for a successor who will try where she failed to deliver Brexit.

May will remain prime minister until a new leader is chosen, likely in late July, but has relinquished control over the direction of Britain’s tortuous departure from the European Union.

Brexit is still scheduled for October 31 but while her rivals thrash it out, the project remains stuck, with the only divorce plan agreed with Brussels stuck in parliament.

May took office after the 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU and has spent the past three years working on the plan, delaying Brexit twice to try to get it through.

But she finally acknowledged defeat in a tearful resignation speech last month, the culmination of months of political turmoil that has slowly sapped all her authority.

Eleven Conservative MPs are currently vying to replace her, including former foreign minister Boris Johnson, but some are expected to drop out before Monday’s deadline for nominations.

The winner will have only a few months to decide whether to try to salvage May’s plan, delay Brexit again — or sever ties with Britain’s closest trading partner with no agreement at all.

They are under pressure from eurosceptic figurehead Nigel Farage, who has called for a “no deal” option and whose Brexit party topped European polls last month.

 

His party suffered a setback on Friday after narrowly missing out on winning its first parliamentary seat, losing to Labour in a by-election in the eastern city of Peterborough.

Despite winning, Labour’s vote share fell by 17 percent while the Tories plummeted by 25 percent, highlighting the task facing May’s successor.

Polling guru John Curtice told the BBC that the result showed Britain was now in a “different political world”.

“A lot of constituencies are now looking at four-party politics, and perhaps in others five-party politics,” said a disappointed Farage.

Power shift

May will formally relinquish her leadership in a private letter to her party on Friday, but no official events are planned to mark the day.

She put on a brave face this week when hosting US President Donald Trump for a state visit, before joining him and other world leaders to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings.

 

But Trump used the trip to speak with Johnson and other candidates to replace her, emphasising where the political power in Britain now lies.

 

“She remains prime minister for a good few weeks yet,” May’s spokesman insisted, noting that any successor must meet Queen Elizabeth II and assure the monarch they have the support of enough lawmakers to take over.

He said May would focus on domestic issues, but “in relation to Brexit, the prime minister said it wouldn’t be for her to take this process forward”.

Trump has been highly critical of May’s Brexit strategy and ahead of his visit to Britain, urged her successor to leave the bloc with no deal if necessary.

Johnson, a leading campaigner in the 2016 referendum who quit the government last year over May’s plan, is among several would-be candidates who say they are willing to do this.

But Environment Secretary Michael Gove, another frontrunner, is open to another Brexit delay, while Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said leaving with no deal is “political suicide”.

Trump had a phone call with Johnson this week and met both Hunt and Farage, although a planned meeting with Gove never materialised.

Nominations for the contest must be submitted on Monday, and the 313 Conservative MPs — including May — will hold the first of a series of secret ballots on June 13.

With the worst performers eliminated each time, the goal is to have two candidates left by June 20. They will then be put to a ballot of an estimated 100,000 party members.

The contest should be completed by the week commencing July 22.

Ruiz demand costly rematch.

These negotiations should be fun!

As Andy Ruiz Jr. continues to be the talk of the town (or really the whole boxing world) after upsetting Anthony Joshua last weekend to become unified heavyweight champion, the titleholder talks to Fight Hub TV about plans for the rematch, and why he’s going to demand huge money if Team Joshua wants to fight on their own home turf.

 

Ruiz on what the last week has been like since becoming champion:

“You know what, it’s been a little crazy. You know, coming from New York over here, doing a lot of interviews, a lot of press, I haven’t gone to see my kids or my wife or nothing like that. But, you know, I’m really excited that I won the world heavyweight champion and I became history, so I’m excited for that.

On his life changing overnight:

“Yep, it sure did, and all the hard work and dedication I’ve been doing with Manny Robles and having all the right people around me, it’s not a one-job thing, you know? But I just thank God.”

 

On his trainer predicting that he would knock Joshua out:

“He had a dream, and my dad — a lot of people had dreams that I knocked him down and it’s crazy. And what do you know, I’m knocking him down.”

On what he was thinking during the first round of the fight, sizing Joshua up:

“I think from the first round to the third round I was just trying to get a feel from him, you know? Both of us was trying to see what we both got, you know? And it’s like a little warm-up thing because we still have 12 other rounds. But what do you know, he dropped me in the third round, my first time being on the canvas, I got up like a true warrior would and knocked him back down.”

On what his first thought was when he got dropped for the first time in his career:

“I was a little surprised. I was like ‘What the hell?’ a little shocked, you know, because I’ve never been down in the canvas, I don’t know how it felt. But it’s kinda like a little numb part where you’re on the floor, your eyes close, you wake up like ‘What the hell, I’m on the floor.’ But I felt good, I got up. I got up good, I took a breather and I was just thinking ‘Come on, God, give me power. Please, God!’ That’s what I was saying when I got knocked down and what do you know, Anthony comes at me trying to finish me off. I moved and got him with the left hook and ever since I got him with that left hook it hasn’t changed — he didn’t change.”

On if he knew Joshua didn’t want anymore after the last knockdown when Joshua went back to his corner and put his arms on the ropes:

“There’s nothing left. I think if the referee wouldn’t have stopped it, I think I would’ve knocked him out in a dramatic other way. But, you know, the ref does his job but I did my job, for sure.”

On how hard Joshua hits:

“Well he hits pretty hard if he put me on the canvas, you know?…I think it was a lucky shot of him putting me on the canvas, but those lucky shots could end the night. But the warrior that I am, the Mexican blood that I have inside of me made me get up and win the fight.”

On what’s the status of the rematch with Joshua:

“Yeah, I think they did say November/December but right now my team, they’re negotiating everything right now, you know, and I just gotta stay busy, stay healthy, and be ready for the rematch.”

On Team Joshua wanting the rematch in the U.K. and whether he has the power to shut that down and force the rematch here in the U.S.:

“I would love it to be here in the United States or in Mexico, you know. But, hey, it all depends on the team and what we negotiate. You know, if they want me to go over there they have to give me $50 million dollars. It they wanna come over there, you know — it’s just negotiations.”

On how he thinks a rematch would play out, and whether or not he thinks it would be the same kind of fight:

“We all have improvements to make and we always learn as boxers, we always have stuff to learn. And I think if we do the rematch he’s gonna be a little bit more cautious. I think he’s gonna try to box me around [the ring] but Anthony’s not good moving back, moving around.

“But if we both exchange punches I’m easily gonna — I have the faster hands and I can take a punch.”

On his thoughts on media pundits like Stephen A. Smith basically trashing his win based on his physical appearance:

“Everyone has their comments and their differences but no hard feelings to the people that are trying to talk down about the fight and whatnot. But shoutout to Steph, or whatever his name is.”

On if he thinks a fight against Deontay Wilder will ultimately be the fight for the undisputed championship:

“You know what? In this boxing game, especially the heavyweight game, you never know because it only takes one punch to change the whole fight and the situation…But who knows, I think it’s gonna be a really exciting fight against Wilder and Ortiz. To me, I think Wilder’s gonna win, you know? Ortiz is a little bit older but I’d love to get in there with Wilder as well. I think that’s the only belt that I’m missing and to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world I need that belt.”

How South Korea was beaten by France.

PARIS — France’s women took a first step to follow in the World Cup footsteps of the French men.

Wendie Renard, at 6-foot-2 the tallest player in the tournament, scored twice on headers off corner kicks, and Les Bleues overwhelmed South Korea 4-0 Friday night in a gala World Cup opener.

Eugénie Le Sommer and Amandine Henry also got goals on a cool, windy night at Parc des Princes, the home of Paris Saint-Germain. French pop star Jain provided the pregame entertainment for the sellout crowd of 45,261, and French President Emmanuel Macron was among the spectators singing “La Marseillaise” and looking on.

“We knew that it was going to be a really emotional evening. But I think we managed it well,” Renard said. “When you have more than 45,000 people singing the French national anthem, obviously it drives you forward.”

France is hosting the tournament at a time when women’s teams are increasing their push for equal treatment from FIFA and other soccer governing bodies. It is vying to become the first nation to hold both the men’s and women’s World Cup titles at the same time.

“I’m sure people expect or hope, and the same goes for us, we’d like to follow in the footsteps of the senior men’s national team,” French coach Corinne Diacre said. “But everything takes time. We won tonight, but we haven’t still won anything. We have six more steps on the road that need to be taken. We need to be serious and focused for six games, and then we’ll see what comes of it.”

Norway and Nigeria meet in the other Group A opener on Saturday. France faces Norway on Wednesday and Nigeria on June 17.

France’s margin of victory was the largest in a Women’s World Cup opener since China beat Norway by the same score at the first tournament in 1991. Four years ago, all nine teams that won their opener advanced from the 24-nation group stage to the round of 16.

The world’s fourth-ranked team wasn’t tested by No. 14 South Korea. France had a 17-0 advantage in shots during the first half and 21-4 overall.

Les Bleues, eliminated by Germany on penalty kicks in the quarterfinals four years ago in Canada, applied pressure from the start on goalkeeper Kim Minjung.

Le Sommer scored in the ninth minute off a cross from Henry and held up her hands in the shape of a heart in celebration after her 75th international goal, the earliest in a Women’s World Cup opener. South Korea has conceded the first goal in all eight World Cup games it has played.

Griedge Mbock Bathy appeared to score in the 30th minute but the goal was disallowed in a video review, technology also used by FIFA at last year’s men’s tournament in Russia.

“On the spur of the moment you’re happy and when the goal’s disallowed it’s frustrating, but you have to switch quickly,” she said. “We had a lot of time left and we had a lot of opportunities to score.”

Renard doubled the lead in the 35th from Gaëtane Thiney’s corner kick as the crowd chanted “Wendie! Wendie!”

She made it 3-0 from Amel Majri’s corner kick in stoppage time with her 22nd international goal. Ten of her last 11 goals have come on headers.

“It really feels good on a personal level,” Renard said. “But I think above all as a team, because these were very important goals. It allowed us to go into the break with a 3-goal lead.”

Henry added her 12th international goal off a pass from Le Sommer in the 85th.

South Korea substitute Lee Mina had the best chance for her team on a breakaway in the 76th minute, but the shot went just wide.

Renard, selected player of the match, is among seven players on France’s roster that play for Lyon, which routed Barcelona 4-1 to win the women’s Champions League for the fourth straight year and sixth time overall.

Diacre had surprised many when her roster did not include PSG’s Marie-Antoinette Katoto, a 20-year-old who led the French league in scoring. Diacre also made the somewhat unexpected decision not to start Valérie Gauvin, who entered in the 70th. The coach said the decision was tactical.

France eliminated South Korea 3-0 in the round of 16 four years ago. Yoon Deok-yeo, South Korea’s coach since 2012, said his team was simply outmatched by Les Bleues.

“The first match, the result is not that good,” he said through a translator. “So for the upcoming two matches, we have to do our best. It is a must.”

How Eden Hazard sealed five-year contract with Madrid.

MADRID (Reuters) – Real Madrid ended their long pursuit of Eden Hazard on Friday when they agreed to sign the Belgium winger from Chelsea on a five-year contract for a reported 100 million euros (89 million pounds), making him their joint-record signing.

Real did not reveal the fee but Spanish media reports said it was the same price Madrid paid for Gareth Bale when he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, a staggering amount considering Hazard was set to become a free agent in June 2020.

“Real Madrid and Chelsea have agreed the transfer for the player Eden Hazard,” the Spanish club said in a statement.

“The player will be tied to the club for the next five seasons, until June 30 2024.”

The Belgian will be officially presented at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium next Thursday, subject to completing a medical.

 

Hazard, who becomes Chelsea’s most expensive sale, expressed his gratitude to a club where he has spent the last seven years while admitting he had always longed to play for Madrid.

“To my Chelsea friends and family: You now know that I will be joining Real Madrid. It’s no secret that it was my dream to play for them since I was a young boy just scoring my first goal,” Hazard wrote on his official Facebook account.

“I have tried my very best not to distract myself or the team through this difficult period of speculation and media attention, especially the last six months.”

Hazard’s transfer is the latest in a long run of ‘Galactico’ signings made by Real but he is also the first top class player to move to the club since Colombian James Rodriguez in 2014.

ZIDANE ADMIRATION

Real president Florentino Perez said last month that they tried to sign Hazard on several occasions while coach Zinedine Zidane is a long-time admirer of the Belgian, who he named as a “star of the future” in 2010 when Hazard was playing for Lille.

He leaves Chelsea having recently guided the west London club to the Europa League title, scoring twice in a 4-1 win over rivals Arsenal in last month’s final in Baku.

The 28-year-old joined Chelsea from Lille in 2012 for 32 million pounds and won the Europa League in his first season. He also won the Premier League title in 2015 and in 2017 as well as one League Cup and the FA Cup.

He scored 16 goals and created another 15 in the Premier League this season as Chelsea finished third in the table.

“Chelsea and especially Chelsea fans will always be special to me and next season I will look for your results first,” Hazard added.

“I hope that we are drawn against each other in the Champions League next season and every season so we can meet again.”

Hazard is Real’s third major signing as they bid to rebuild their squad after an embarrassing campaign on all fronts in which they ended up without a trophy, sacked two coaches and finished 19 points adrift of La Liga champions Barcelona.

They have already recruited Brazilian defender Eder Militao from Porto for a reported 50 million euros and Serbian striker Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt for 60 million euros.

Brazilian forward Rodrygo is also due to join Real next season after agreeing a reported 45 million euro move from Santos last year.

Why Buhari intervened in Kano Tussle?

Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari on Friday was reported to have moved to intervene in a power tussle between the political and traditional authorities in the north central Kano State.

Tensions had been high in Kano over a move by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to oust the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II after a fallout deemed to be political in nature.

The Daily Nigerian portal cited an inside source at the presidency as confirming the news. Other portals have since reported same.

 

“You know the president hardly interferes in matters of states. But on this issue, the president had to just interfere. The president is not happy with the governor for taking the unpopular decision of balkanizing the emirate and making moves to dethrone the emir.

“The president therefore summoned Ganduje on Thursday and directed the Director-General of the DSS to call for emergency meeting with governors of the North West.

“The governors are led by the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, who first met and briefed the president on the matter on Thursday,” the source is quoted to have said.

 

Buhari’s intervention comes on the final day the Kano State government had given to the emir to respond to a query of financial misappropriation and to explain why he should not be suspended.

Reports say the fallout between the two men was due to perceived support of the emir for the main opposition candidate in this years gubernatorial elections which Ganduje won after a supplementary vote to secure his final term in office.

The Emir, a former Central Bank governor, has had his powers split after Ganduje split the Kano Emirates – which dates back to centuries – into five. He appointed four extra emirs with the same powers as Sanusi.
