Love Is In The Air: What’s Your Love Language?



We are in the month of love people! (sorry single pringles). Cupid has already started moving about with his bow and arrow looking for hearts to shoot down. Everywhere you turn in the month of February screams L.O.V.E. It’s in your face, ears, mouth… You can feel it, touch it, even smell it. Ah, love! The sweet aroma of roses, the sound of heartbeats syncing, the heart-shaped gifts, the warmth of shared laughter—I could go on and on. Help! I think I’ve been hit by Cupid!

Love is the most beautiful feeling in the world. To love and be loved in return is wonderful but have you ever wondered what sails your love boat? What gives you affirmation that someone loves you or is in love with you and vice versa? Let’s take a look at the 5 love languages to see which one does it for you.

  1. Acts of Service

For those who speak the language of acts of service, actions speak louder than words. Vacuuming the house, washing the dishes, or surprising your partner with breakfast in bed are all gestures that scream, “I love you!” If you find joy in rolling up your sleeves to help your loved ones, acts of service might just be your love language.

  1. Words of Affirmation

Is your heart aflutter when you hear sweet nothings whispered in your ear? If so, then I think you just found your love language. Whether it’s a heartfelt compliment or an “I love you” text, words carry weight in this language. And remember, even a well-timed “You’re amazing!” can be the arrow that pierces through the heart.

  1. Quality Time

I remember when I was in the university and my idea of a date was taking long walks around the school. Some of my friends thought I was weird but that, for me, was how a date was supposed to be. People who love quality time thrive on undivided attention. It’s not just about being physically present but truly engaging in the moment. So, put down that smartphone, turn off the TV, take a break from Al Gore’s internet and let the bonding begin. Whether it’s a cosy night in or a spontaneous road trip, quality time lovers revel in the cherished minutes spent together.

  1. Physical Touch

Clingy much? If you’re a fan of holding hands, cuddling, or stealing a kiss in the moonlight or cinema, your love language might be physical touch. Physical intimacy is the heartstring that connects you to your loved ones. From a warm embrace to a gentle pat on the back, the power of touch transcends words.

  1. Receiving Gifts

Do you like your love wrapped in a bow? If you find joy in giving and receiving thoughtful presents, then receiving gifts is your love language. For some, it’s the thought that counts, but for others, it’s the actual gift that steals the show. It’s not about the price tag but the sentiment behind the gesture. So, who said diamonds were a girl’s best friend? Errm… they are mine but if your pocket is screaming, ABORT MISSION! Not to worry, the UBA prepaid card is a perfect gift that I’d equally cherish.

Since Cupid’s got you in a chokehold and you’ve found out what gives your heart the tingles, what if I told you UBA cards could help you speak your love language even better? Whatever activity you want to do this Valentine’s—eat some good food and desserts, go to the cinemas, enjoy a pleasant date night or get a well thought out gift, do it with your debit card to enjoy special offers for a more memorable time. It gets even better. If it’s a prepaid card, you get N50k or its equivalent in your local currency preloaded on it. Now tell me if this isn’t one sweet Valentine’s.

Yoruba Nation: Igboho Accuses Buhari Of Attempting To Assassinate Him



Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Igboho, on Friday, said he came back to Nigeria by the power of God.

Igboho made the remark while accusing former President Muhammadu Buhari of attempting to assassinate him.

He alleged that Buhari sent the Department of State Services, DSS, and soldiers to assassinate him in his house.

Addressing his followers in Oyo State, the freedom fighter claimed that his agitation against Fulani herders killing of farmers in the Southwest was behind the move to assassinate him.

According to Igboho: “Buhari sent his soldiers and DSS to arrest me in my house because I said Yorubas are not slaves to Fulanis, they can’t suppress us in our father’s land.

“Fulanis can’t stop our fathers and mothers from going to their farms. But, I’m back with the power of God and authority not that of man.”

The freedom fighter returned to Nigeria on Thursday, ahead of his mother’s burial in the Saki area of Oyo State.

Igboho has been out of Nigeria since 2021 when he eloped to Benin Republic after he was declared wanted by the DSS.

DSS had invaded his residence in the Soka area of Oyo State but he escaped.

The secret police had declared him wanted over his agitation for Yoruba Nation and attacks on Fulani herders accused of killing farmers in the Southwest.

In Benin Republic, Igboho was arrested and remanded while attempting to travel to Germany.

However, he recently regained his freedom after two years in a Beninoise prison.

Alleged N30bn Disbursement: Nigerians Deserve To Know The Truth, Peter Obi Tells FG



Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, has advised the Federal Government to give details on how they disturbed N30bn each to the 36 state governors to ameliorate inflation and high cost of food items.

Obi’s demand followed the claim by the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, that an “unverified report” showed that state governors received N30 billion each from the federation account to alleviate the economic hardship and ravaging hunger in their respective domains.

However, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State dismissed the report, saying there was no truth in the claim by Akpabio that states of the federation got an additional N30 billion each outside of their statutory revenue allocations.

Obi, in a statement on his X handle on Friday, said the details of the disbursement should be explained for the interest of good governance and transparency.

According to him, it would enable the masses, for whom the support is meant, to follow through and ensure that it is utilized appropriately to their benefit.

He further appealed to the state governments to ensure that the resources are genuinely and transparently invested in productive ventures to alleviate the present hardship.

“Recently, the Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio, announced that a staggering financial support of N1.1 trillion, amounting to a sum of N30 billion each was doled out to the state governors to help ameliorate the present hardship in the country.

“While the Federal Government is to be commended for offering such a huge support, considering the difficult times people are going through, it is pertinent, for the interest of good governance and transparency, that the details of the disbursement of such support be explained further, so that the public, the masses for whom the support is meant, can follow through and ensure that it is utilized appropriately to the benefit of the people.

“While waiting for such details, I appeal that concerted efforts should be made to ensure that the resources are genuinely and transparently invested in productive ventures to alleviate present hardship and help the future growth of the country,” he wrote

PDP Will Lose Edo State If They Don’t Accept Me As Candidate – Shaibu



The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has warned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that failure to accept him as its candidate in the Edo State governorship election will spell doom for the party in the state.

While Asue Ighodalo was declared as the winner of the PDP primary at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City on Thursday, Philip Shaibu, who is the deputy governor of the state emerged as the candidate in another election held in a different venue.

Speaking on the development on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Friday, Shuaibu maintained that he is the authentic candidate of the party for the September 21 election, saying that Edo people do not want Ighodalo whom he said is not homeboy.

“The option is for the PDP not to go and argue against my candidacy, if they do that PDP will lose Edo State. Edo people do not want Asue Ighodalo to be the governor of Edo State because he is not a homboy they know.

“They are looking for someone that they know, somebody they can feel, somebody they can touch. PDP has a date with history, delegates have spoken that they want Shuaibu and I can bet you that the other eight aspirants will support Shuaibu if they party back him.

“If the party decides to join us in court to argue for Ighodalo then PDP then winning Edo State for PDP will be shaky because Asue will not be accepted by the people,” Shaibu said.

The deputy governor faulted the primary that produced Ighodalo, saying that it was organised by the state party executive instead of the national executive of the party.

He claimed that members of the state executive of are and the governor are supporters of Ighodalo and therefore were not going to conduct an unbiased election.

Shaibu insisted that he was elected by the authentic delegates of the party in the state.

“I was elected by the authentic, what is key is who are those that elected the governor’s preferred candidate Asue and who are those that elected Philip Shuaibu? I think in the coming days we will know who among them are authentic,” he said.

Shaibu said his relationship with Governor Godwin Obaseki is not the best at the moment, suggesting that his governorship ambition could be the reason behind the strained relationship with the governor.
