Jose Mujica: President wey poor pass for world. Lives on farm


The President of Uruguay dey live on a ramshackle farm and gives away most of his pay.


This guy no be like other politicians’ lifestyles wey dey far removed from those wey dem dey serve. No be so in Uruguay.









For em farm, Laundry dey outside the house. Na from inside well dem dey get water and the compound dey overgrown with weeds. Na only two police officers and Manuela, a three-legged dog, dey keep watch outside.


President Mujica shunned the luxurious house wey the Uruguayan state provide for dem leaders. Na inside em wife farmhouse, off a dirty road outside the capital, Montevideo em dey stay.




The president and em wife dey work the land themselves, growing flowers.

This austere lifestyle – and the fact say Mujica donates about 90% of em monthly salary, equivalent to $12,000 (£7,500), to charity – don lead am to be labelled the poorest president in the world.






Make you visit BBC for details but the following na em words:

“I’m called ‘the poorest president’, but I don’t feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle, and always want more and more”

“This is a matter of freedom. If you don’t have many possessions then you don’t need to work all your life like a slave to sustain them, and therefore you have more time for yourself”

“I may appear to be an eccentric old man… But this is a free choice.”

“We’ve been talking all afternoon about sustainable development. To get the masses out of poverty.

“But what are we thinking? Do we want the model of development and consumption of the rich countries? I ask you now: what would happen to this planet if Indians would have the same proportion of cars per household than Germans? How much oxygen would we have left?

“Does this planet have enough resources so seven or eight billion can have the same level of consumption and waste that today is seen in rich societies? It is this level of hyper-consumption that is harming our planet.”

This poor president dey support a debate on the legalisation of the consumption of cannabis, in a bill wey go also give the state the monopoly over its trade.

“Consumption of cannabis is not the most worrying thing, drug-dealing is the real problem,” he yarn.

Jelena breaks up to Justin and Selena. A speculation?

E be like say Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (couple called ‘Jelena’) don break up. Abi na speculation?

Wetin cause am na trust issues and the fact that both of them dey very busy. “Busy doing what?” Go ask them!

Dem be children and are prone to changing their mind anytime wey dem like.

“While it’s actually likely that teenage Twitter drama led to the demise of “Jelena,” Barbara Palvin — the model whom Bieber was photographed with has denied that the two are dating multiple times:

“last time im saying it. please calm down.there is nothing going on w him.i met him and did a pic w him. wouldnt u do the same?:) #friendship,” she tweeted on Nov. 10.

It’s obvious that something transpired that was big enough to bring “Jelena” to an end, but for now it’s all just speculation.” – Huffingtonpost na dem yarn am.


Teenage girls unveiled URINE-powered generator at international exhibition in Lagos, Nigeria



Four African girls don create generator wey fit use wee-wee “Urine, that is” to produce electricity. One litre of wee-wee go produce 6-hour supply of electricity.

Dem showcase the generator for Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, a week ago.






The girl-innovators are teens Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15.


No ask me how the thing go work. Go find the girls.

But Yahoo News fit help small:”

  • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
  • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
  • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
  • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

And as for delivering the fuel itself? Well, we’ll leave that up to the consumer.”


Hoping the right quarters go pick this up.

Seun Anikulapo Kuti, son of Afro-beat maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, wey yamutu about 1.5 decades ago,dey advocate for the legalisation of Marijuana.

His words, “Marijuana is medical, and I feel Cigarette is selling legally because it is white man’s business. It is killing millions of people every day. ‘Igbo’ is not killing anybody… Marijuana is not only for smoking. It’s used for a lot of things; you can make clothes, you can drink tea, it is good, it is medicinal, it helps your appetite, they give it to cancer patients.. a lot of benefits”.

This dey happen as two states in the United States, Colorado and Washington recently joined others as dem legalise the herb ‘for medicinal purposes’.


Other states for United States dey different stages of breaking the cuffs of Marijuana.



Naija, my country, wetin dey happen? “Everything is prohibited, bad, extremely so for us it becomes deprohibited, good for other countries, especially, the United States.”

As tears dey waka down em face, Obama yarn his team for inside the Chicago campaign headquarters “What you guys have accomplished will go on in the annals of history and they will read about it and they’ll marvel about it.”

“The most important thing you need to know is that your journey’s just beginning. You’re just starting. And whatever good we do over the next four years will pale in comparison to whatever you guys end up accomplishing in the years and years to come,” em yarn.


One history book and many others don talk details about this victory be that o. I marvel at how these people dey create and recreate history. Something for Naijamen to learn. Enjoy!
