Munira Suleiman Tanimu

Munira Suleiman Tanimu is the first daughter among her parent’s 16 children. The pretty Munira hails from Kaduna State and is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and politician.


Owing to her father’s political status, she grew up getting a thorough and sound political orientation. As the first daughter, she assumed her mother’s role whenever the latter was away from home – a role she enjoyed playing. Munira was highly efficient in playing the ‘mother’ role that she became her father’s favourite and he began to trust her with the running of the home. Hence, she learned a lot about taking responsibility.

Hon. Munira had her primary and early secondary education at Essence International School, Kaduna, whereas she sat for her Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) at Government College, Kaduna. As against the cultural ethics and religious beliefs of the northern community – one of which is that a lady’s hand should be given in marriage after her second menstrual cycle, Munira took up the form to study Sociology at the University of Abuja. She proceeded to Harvard University, after her first degree, to study Leadership Communication, and then to Lagos Business School (LBS) to bag a certificate in Business Management.

POLITICAL CAREER

Picking on her political background, Hon. Munira Taminu ventured into politics in 2015 and of the four aspirants who vied for the Kaduna State House of Assembly seat at the primaries, she was the only female. However, she came in second.

According to a source, Munira has declared that her motive for going into politics is to be able to positively influence the political world and change the way politics is run both at the state and national level.

Although she lost the primaries in 2015, Hon. Munira has declared her intention to contest come 2019.

BUSINESS CAREER

At the age of 18, Munira’s father gave her some money to start her own business. This he did with all of her siblings as well. She ventured into various businesses ranging from interior decoration to catering services, and fashion outfit, failing at some and making it through others.

Notwithstanding her many failures, Munira did not give up. Today, she if the CEO of Green Garden Farm, a poultry farm in Kano housing over 5,000 chickens. She also runs a town service transport service – ‘MSTS Ventures’, and an event centre.

PHILANTHROPISM

The kind-hearted Hon. Munira has not withheld good from those who are in need of it. She picked the charitable act when she was ten.

Munira currently runs a non-governmental Organization (Green Heart Impact Foundation) registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission on June 19, 2014. GHIF promotes and implements sustainable programmes that seek to solve specific social problems in Nigerian societies through education, nutrition, skill acquisition, and empowerment.

The organization gives charity to the needy by providing food, clothing, healthcare, emergency relief materials, school materials, scholarships and business grants to empower the less privileged. It also focuses on the rehabilitation of girls and also taking girls off the street and sending them back to school, providing them with the necessary materials – books, bags, boxes of wears, mattresses and pillows, etc.

In the few years of its establishment, over 50 girls have been taken off the streets and sent back to school while their mothers have been empowered in various entrepreneurial fields.

The dominant hash tags used by the NGO are#BooksOverTrays #NoToGirlChildHawking.

GHIF is funded with 10% of the profit from all businesses owned by Munira.

CONTEMPORARY FEMINISM

CONTEMPORARY FEMINISM:

Deficiencies in conceptualization, Flaws in formulation and Injustices in application.

22nd October, 2018

Over the past two weeks, in two of my articles entitled “Refuting Feminism on Classical Grounds” and “Feminists: Why impose qualifications for marriage based on age?” I have argued that the contemporary feminism; far from being a war on liberty is nothing but a misguided ideology and a misleading movement – right from the conception of the idea down to its application. As I draw together the themes of my arguments in this article, I would be issuing challenges to the feminist movements to make radical alterations in their approach and attitudes and also temper their optimism for gender equality with considerable degree of caution by putting into consideration other people’s right as feminism today is taken to extreme level.
We would learn a lot more about the real underlying principle of feminism by referring back to history. After the abolishment of slavery, the labour provided by slaves (both males and females) needs to be done by the slave owners themselves or by hired labourers which is cost implicative, all the free non-consensual sex they had with the female slaves ended; therefore there is need to figure a way of coercing women to willingly work so as to add to the work force and deluded them that selling out nudity is fashion through creation of entertainment industries. Similarly, shortly after the First World War, the shortage of male labour provided the advances in compelling women to work and mingle with men in farms, industries and offices. They always cry out loud that women are not empowered hence, they advocate women empowerment so that the woman can take control over when, whether and how many children she’s going to have, but is that true? Is the economic status and self-satisfaction of a woman’s basic needs their actual motive behind the campaign? Or they get them out and about working so as not to fulfil their responsibilities of providing for them. I am not outwardly rejecting women empowerment in its totality, but I am however of the ideology that women should work only in extreme circumstances when there is no one else to provide for them not because they are weak but because they are special, valuable and they deserved to be provided for. As a daughter, it should be the responsibility of her father to provide her with all her needs, as a wife it should be the responsibility of her husband and that of her children as a mother. Islam deemed it mandatory for a woman to go out and work in extreme circumstances so as to fend for herself than to go around begging as some people can take advantage of that and exploit her condition into luring her to commit adultery or fornication.
It is striking that women are used as mere tools in order to achieve certain goals in recent times. Think for a moment why they exploit the woman’s body to promote commodities even if it is a kind of detergent, fruits, cigarettes or electronics in order to coerce people to buy such products, they use the voice of women in electronic devices for giving instructions, they use women in stripper clubs, cheerleading in sports events, often use women as waitresses, hostesses etc. The reason can only be understood clearly when we look at phenomena like the use of regulatory techniques employed by social animals.
In insects, many of the disciplined social activities are believed to be regulated by substances such as trail factors and alarm substances which always act as sex attractants. It is easy to get the colony in order by the use of such substances, so the queen applied these techniques to get the soldiers protect the colony, the workers to provide and serve the colony, the nurses to take care of the young while she enjoy her throne, produce eggs and get fertilized by the male insects which in most cases die immediately after the intercourse as in the case of male praying mantis. An analogy of this can be seen in humans today where people are controlled and brainwashed using women as sex attractants; they compelled women to roam about naked. In fact these people use the woman’s body to achieve their caprices, please their sex appeal and satisfy their sexual gratifications. Those women who work in such fields are mere agents and they are not as responsible as those that put them in such roles because they are enforced to work in these fields out of want, temptation or misguidance.
One would wonder why feminists always campaign against the role of women in marriage, institution of family, child bearing and bringing up the children; some went extra miles to formulate birth control pills, abortion pills and recently pregnancy vaccines are currently being tested as some of the contraceptives proved ineffective in controlling birth, well, here is the explanation. It is an analogy of the use of pheromones by the queen bee to control birth in other members of her colony. The queen bee has absolute control of her colony, she gets all the advantages other members don’t usually get, and they serve and protect her. In return she laid eggs that would be hatched to increase population of the colony. So, these benefits would only be offered to the queen bee because of her unique function – producing eggs. If other members of the colony would also produce eggs, they would be treated in similar manner as the queen, which will eventually end her monopoly in the control and leadership of the colony. In order not to lose that, the queen bee secretes a class of hormone called pheromone which acts on other members of the colony. The pheromone, 9-ketodecanoic acid secreted by the mandibular glands of the queen inhibits the development of ovaries in worker bees and also restricts them from constructing royal cells for the rearing of new queens.
Furthermore, feminists publish the statistics of girls married under 18 years and those that have no access to family planning or contraceptives; but they never bothered to share how many of such girls under 18 years that are engaged in premarital sexual intercourse – be it consensual or otherwise in schools, playgrounds, at parties, after movies etc. If there is freedom of consensual sex below 18, there should be freedom of consensual marriage below 18. They never bother to mention how many of those minor girls get pregnant as a result of such intercourse and how many died in the process of aborting such unwanted extra-marital pregnancies. They never care to share how many died as a result of the side effects of those abortion pills, family planning drugs and contraceptives.
They speak loosely of pregnancy and child birth as the cause of death of teenage girls and babies born to these teenage girls, they don’t have in mind the notion of multiple causes of death. The actual cause of death may be quite specific but if it had not been this particular cause today, it would have been something else tomorrow. They always cite examples with the likes of India, Nigeria and other developing nations as having most cases of child mortality at birth as a result of teenage girls aged 15 – 19 having babies; perhaps there is a paradox because they yet keep announcing that the population of such countries is on the increase and even project statistics of overpopulation in years to come.
These feminists always cry out loud that women are discriminated sexually, that they are not afforded marital consent or sexual consent when they are married off at young ages because of religious constraints; but such people failed to realise that in Islam for example, it is mandatory to seek the consent of a girl before giving her hands out in marriage and her approval is needed before establishment of the marriage.
In conclusion, there is no reason at all as to why one should single out a specific gender and form a right activists group claiming to fight for their freedom or to enshrine equality, because in doing so, it is a direct indictment on the other gender. Every woman at a certain point in time is a daughter, sister, wife or mother to another man, if this fact is established; I don’t think any well-meaning reasonable man would oppress or infringe the right of a woman he is having such relationship with. Therefore, the feminism which demonizes men, which has imbibed a culture of entitlement, the feminism which want equality not equity of privileges and the feminism which does not want equity of reciprocal and complementary responsibilities rather prefer equality of responsibilities, is to be discouraged by women themselves as in the long run, it will do more harm than good to the feminine gender.

EXPECTATION VS REALITY

EXPECTATION VS REALITY.

By Zainab Malala

Technology has made a lot of things easier which has both positive and negative effect in our society today. Nobody can say there hasn’t been any benefit he/she has gotten from this technological advancement.

As it’s been said most things that have advantages also have disadvantages, which is why my today’s article will focus on ebooks especially northern novels written by our northern ladies.

As per what I have seen and read must novels when it comes to courtship and marriage it’s only focuses on the romantic aspect plus sex more than any other thing which is contrary to what’s happening in our real world.

Islam forbids any bodily contact with a non muharram in any way except in a very critical case which is unavoidable and understandable, but you will find out that must of this writers are actually doing the contrary especially during the courtship the guy will hold her tight in his arms, French kisses, they almost had sex all in the name of love and are both Muslims throughout the novel. Then after marriage the love they share will increase the more which is absolutely different from reality no much problem may arise due to the touching and romance during courtship.

Another thing is going into details pertaining the couple’s sex life, especially on the first night stuffs and subsequently refusing to skip some points backing that up as just a mere story which was meant for entertainment.

I know some writers may say it’s a means of showing some married women how to have a peaceful and romantic matrimonial home while some will say it’s just for fun and many more. But have you ever thought for a second about our younger generation, the teenagers with fresh mind and a lot of ambitions? Have you ever thought of how it will affect them? Have you ever thought as a writer how a teenager understand the message you are trying to pass across? Have you ever thought of the kind of psychological imagination they go through(that’s their up to most expectation). Whom later on when married sees a whole different version of what they read from your books(that’s when reality sets in).

Teenagers nowadays read books not only for entertainment but they also adapt what they read to their day to day activities. They will start thinking on how to live the kind of life they read in a certain book, more especially on the details mentioned on the sex part, the thought they will have will be that marriage is all about sex and nothing more and that’s their main expectation.

Yes I agree that you write for fun and because you have passion for it but still have you ever thought that whatever you do you shall give an account for it? Am not trying to condemn anybody’s write up but please remember that the percentage of young girls that read your novels are much higher than the percentage of the married women you are trying to pass the message across to. Try as much as possible to avoid going into details, if at all someone benefitted from your book another will definitely be harmed from it.

Your novels are meant to be motivational with positive morals meant for the society to learn and improve on their day to day activities. Please try to be real ambassadors in this aspect if at all you continue like this, the harm done will be more than the benefit gotten. At least what you write should at least reflect to what’s actually happening in reality. Always remember that whatever you do you shall give an account for it.

It’s just a piece of advise from a sister to another and I’ve said my mind.

Bissalam!!

GRENADINES AN OPENING TO ABSOLUTE HARDSHIP

GREEDINESS AN OPENING TO ABSOLUTE HARDSHIP

 

By Zainab Malala.

 

Living in the north is not that easy for a woman though Islam made everything possible for her to be able to live a peaceful life without burden, with that still some women tend to over see all that and lower thier level so low that you tend to think if actually this is a woman that’s worth dignifying. You will start asking what am I trying to say from what I’ve mentioned, well what actually draw my attention was how some Musleem sisters stooped so low to greediness and lack of self esteem.

 

For the fact that a girl will be bred up from a highly responsible and respective family after all the Islamic teaching she had both from home and school but surprisingly she wouldn’t be contented with what she has at home, she’d rather ask for more from a so called boy friend. She will be like ” Bae there’s a wedding coming up soon I really need money for preparation”, ” Darling I need a new cell phone”, or ” Sweetheart am visiting a friend later can you come and pick me up when am done?”. My dear sister are you for real!! A man you barely know is the one you place too much demands on as if he’s your father, husband or a brother? Before you met him who did you ask all those from? Some ladies could barely have 3 square of meals a day at home but place such request just because they have no self esteem, no self limitation, they just want to live a life like others a life she ain’t born with, forgetting that even our fingers ain’t made equal.

 

As a lady you demand a lot from a man forgetting that not all men have clean hearts that they give without seeking for something in return you will be thinking its all out of love.

 

A lady goes saying that she is only going to date a rich man or a ready made guy so that she lives like a queen after marriage forgetting all the ups and downs in marriage which she heard a lot about from her family and friends.

 

Have you ever thought of a day this same guy will ask something from you in return as a token of what he has been doing to you?. Something you never expect from him. Have you ever thought that is not every person that gives a gift for the sake of Allah? What will then give back in return?What if you fought and he tells you to return all that he gave you?

 

It’s high time you wake up and know where you are heading to because the paying back of what he gave you won’t be an easy task if he actually asks it back. If lucky he ask for his money back and all that he gave you, if not that lucky the wicked ones go to the extent of asking for your virginity which you have been guarding for your rightful husband, which if you are not careful he goes to the extent of raping you, which he might have already planned for it from the beginning.

 

I will stop here for now leaving the floor for every reader that comes across this to think about what I’ve just said. Look forward for part II.

 

NEITHER POLITICAL APATHY NOR POLITICAL ENTHUSIASM

Neither Political Apathy Nor Political Enthusiasm

BY

NANA AISHA

I don’t know if the saying ‘Politics has no relationship with morals’ is the reason behind the ridiculous attitude of our youths toward the upcoming 2019 election both on social medias and in real life. The risk we are taking is much more than the sacrifice our so called representatives our willing to make.

I want to believe the aim of the entire election is to select a leader that will represent the entire nation regardless of our religion, tribe, culture or financial status. I want to believe unity is essential in promoting our great country. Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightment, when there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there will be abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.

But sad enough this days all in the name of campaigning, we drop accusations, insults, criticism and lots more purposely to support our contestants. We fight like wolves either verbally, on social medias or physically as soon as an issue arises. We lay curses on our leaders which might be as relevant as ‘P’ in pneumonia to them but in one way or the other these curses turn out to only provoke them and make them worst.

I don’t know what politics entails, but I grew up hearing quotes like ‘Politics is a dirty game’, ‘Qarya/ iya saba alkawari Kaman dan siyasa’ along side with others. That alone gave me the impression that politics is a board issue and maybe a little bit high for my brain to comprehend.

Am not saying campaigning is a bad thing am only trying to make a point that doing it for the right person, peacefully without any violence, without making fuss or insulting each other might pay up at the end. Maybe if we could be a little bit careful with our words we might find our leaders a little bit better.

I will like to round this up with a quotation from an Indian actor Pawan Kalyan “History and social science were my interest. I was always interested in knowing how societies get organized, why there is rich and poor divide, why there are classes. I was never apolitical. I think we are all political in a way. Politics decides our day to day life”.
