Gokada #Protests the #ban placed on them by the #LagosstateGoverment


The rather not thoroughly thought through decision by the Lagos State Governement to ban tricycles and bikes off the road has gotten the much predicted outcome in just the first day of it’s commencement.

Lagosian have now all pulled out their permanently parked vehicles from the residence and hopped onto the road for an easy get around.

But with Gokada being part of the ban, they are not however about to take it lying down since so many youths are involved in the bike ride to get people to their various destinations.

This is the very first day the ban is being effective, and the effect of their absence is weighing down on Lagosians who are now asking for a rethink into the decision by the state Governor.

#LinkedIn User Claims Nigerian #footballer Ahmed Musa is set to spend N1Billion on #scholarship for 100 #students


According to a LinkedIn profile which goes by the user name Samuel Aboki, he is revealing that the gentle Northern footballer Ahmed Musa is set to spend N1Billion on scholarship for 100 students at skyline University , with an average of N2.5 million on each student.

He added that the football star built a N500million sport complex for the citizens of his state of origin in Kano state.

I have not heard of this, and even though the northerners love to be humble and low-key in their financial dealings, this is something involving such huge amounts and sweeping it under the rug is not nice at all. if he truly did this, then he sure needs to be shown some love. Wait, where is Skyline University? In the north I guess 🙄🙄.

The #Sussexroyal makes a post in honour of the #InternationalDayofEducation


Reposted from @sussexroyal Today, on International Day of Education, we highlight the importance of access to education for all. The Duchess of Sussex has focused on this both prior to becoming a member of the Royal Family and now as patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official).

Working closely with CAMA, both The Duke and Duchess recognise the benefit both personally and to society at large when a young girl has access to education. On their recent tour to Southern Africa, The Duke supported the initiatives of @Camfed on the ground in Malawi 🇲🇼.

Over the years, The Duchess has worked in developing communities, such as in Rwanda 🇷🇼 and India 🇮🇳 , to find the hindrances to girls’ ability to go to school and furthermore to stay in school. These can include lack of access to clean water, stigma surrounding MHM, cultural taboo, and many more reasons….

As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.Image © World Vision / PA / @mynamahila / SussexRoyal – #regrann

#Gabunion sets aside her #WCW to honour the industry #blackwomen who have earned her respect


With her number of years in Hollywood, she has seen it all and knows where everyone will end up based on their persistence and attitude towards their trade and others. So when Gabrielle Union, Mrs Dwayne Wade, Mummy to Savage baby Kavia Wade, tells you that she is impressed by you, then you are doing something good.

For her WCW, she is shining the light on those who have not gotten enough light on them, but yet are doing so good that the light has no option than to find them and shine on them. For the part three wednesdays, here are the first three sets of people who have made the 47 year old woman proud.

from @gabunion This week’s #WCW goes out to a mother-daughter power duo — @zoeisabellakravitz and Lilakoi Moon. I wanted to highlight the bond between mothers and daughters as I try to make my way as a new mom with babygirl.

I’ve always admired the obvious love, respect and nurturing village Zoe’s parents created and how beautiful it has been to witness as a mom just trying to figure it all out. Talk about two strong and talented women.

Zoe is the daughter of beautiful Lilakoi and is truly making a name for herself. From being the lead of her band Lolawolf to landing meaningful roles on the big screen she has been a legend in the making for the past few years now.

Let me also point out she is a flat-out fashion goddess and got it from her mama 😉. Lilakoi has inspired me for years with her class, effortlessly cool style, and kindness. Leave it to this mother daughter duo to steal your heart…@kaaviajames look forward to these type of moments! Let us lift them up in the light of goodness and hold them there.

Reposted from @gabunion This week’s #WCW is the stunning and dynamic South Sudanese-Australian model, Adut Akech Bior. She spent her early years in a refugee camp in Kenya, and she attributes this life of violence and fear to what taught her the power of gratitude .

In school she was bullied for her skin tone and her gap, and now she has owned those aspects of herself and  made  it into a brand of self love!  She started her modeling career at 16 years old, and just three years later has graced the cover of countless magazines and has garnered awards and honors like: , 2019 BFA – Model of The Year, 2019 Industry vote – Model of The Year, 2019 Time – 100 NEXT List… just to name a few.

Beyond her beauty, she is set to work with the U.N. to help refugees at her former camp, and one day she wants to build a school, a hospital, or a modeling agency in South Sudan. Keep on shining. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there. – #regrann

Sister in-law to Nigerians and #Burnaboy ‘s girlfriend #Stefflondon just now reacting to the usual #power outage we have come to terms with


Seems it’s been a while since this aunty came to her boyfriend’s home to visit. She is not in anyway use to this crazy situation like we are. After all the calling out of leaders, protests, up and down promises by the leaders, outrageous sums of money invested into the power sector, embezzled money meant for power improvement, investors up and down, and the recent promise again.

Nigerians have indeed faced something else to do with their time other than protest for a constant power supply. It is however a point of sober reflection for Nigerians to see yet another person from a more organised part of exustence, wondering why the country is not having a constant power supply like they are expected to.

Aunty Steff, if you must have our Burna, then you have to really come to terms like we have, will the the fact that light situation in the country won’t be changing to suit you. Better get use to generator, which is now the oga of the sector as far as we know it. Let them on your Gen so you can continue your flexing.

When people who have no other home but the United States are scared for their life as Iran vows to revenge the killing of their general, people are finding the issue exciting and somehow inserting themselves into he case just for pleasure.

The black Twitter is however making a large humour out of the predicament, all getting creative with issue, as some are in support, and others are just silent and incredibly livid with President Trump.

End of year #crime rate has officially overwhelmed the #Nigerianpolice


While we are happy to be doing things and being grateful for all that we are given despite not being up to whatever it is that we planned, and we are finally closing in on the end of 2019, then let us look at the pros and cons of the festivity. The horses are closed so importation is seized so that Nigerian made foods can be bought, promoted, consumed and improved upon. But then again a hand full of individuals are fighting this plans and setting markets all over the country ablaze.

The Nigerian rice that we were asked to patronise are now as unbelievably expensive. As expensive as the imported would have been if they’re were allowed into the country. This is how you know that economic sabotage is such a huge thing is this country. I mean who are we kidding? No one monitors the prices of goods and services, no one stops these misbehaviours and unnecessary price hikes. People are islands and they do whatever the heck they want with prices and services and we have no option than to patronise them nevertheless.

As we draw to the end of the year in Nigeria, so many people especially the youths are without any source of income, and those who do, have little or nothing to show for it because so many family members are relying on them and asking endlessly for assistance due to the rate of poverty the country people are dealing with.

The high number of people without jobs are confidently going into crime and they are doing it with so much lacknof fear of the police.

A friend of mine was robbed amid so many other people I know that have equally been robbed in a space of one month. She went to the police to officially report and get an assistance with tracking her phone but they were more interested in extorting her with things so unbelievably stupid as making her pay for police report, charging her double for affidavit and constantly telling her she is a big girl to have been using such an expensive missing phone. This friend of mine was constantly reaching the criminals through her missing line, but the police man started avoiding her phone calls.

There are so many Nigerians turning to all sorts of crimes to survive, or even make ends meet so desperately. They are attacking, killing, robbing and ruining the already stressed out workers in the society. People are robbed at every single time of the day and at every single place possible even at their homes. The police are overwhelmed and thereby avoiding victims. Don’t think you are not robbable dear readers, so while we can’t rely on the police of our country to protect us, then here are some things that we can do to help keep ourselves safe while we survive this season, governement and time.

  • Drop your ATM with plenty money at home and carry the one with only small for your day
  • Delete Bank transaction messages from your phone
  • Drop your expensive phone at home if you must go out at night
  • While in traffic at night, control your urge to go on social media so you don’t attract criminals with your phone light
  • Resist making money calls in public to avoid giving ideas to criminals
  • If you go to work in the early hours of the day, then avoid dark and scanty places and stand at the a well lit places
  • Be very vigilant at all times.
  • Limit the show of affluence in public
  • Try to go back home before night fall as many of these crimes at done in the dark
  • Becareful with entering private vehicles and letting strangers enter yours
  • Letting strangers into your home at night is a
  • While driving , always look into your rare view mirror to know when you are being followed.
  • Avoid the bank and have all transactions done fast
  • Do not have phone apps in your phone since you can do transactions with bank USSD code. This is because you will be forced to make transactions.
  • Don’t go arguing, challenging, threatening and fighting with an armed robber. Don’t be stupid.

How I became a billonaire at 25 – Gov. #Umahi


Stop whatever you are doing at the moment and reading this speech that I’m not sure what exactly it is about is just fine. Because I don’t think I get it at all, I need someone to help interpret to me. Because If a Governor can be so wealthy at such a gender age in a state so ridden with poverty so much that it’s people are known around the country, then everything is not alright. Read message below:

Ebony state Governor David Umahi recently shocked the world, especially Nigerians with his revelation about his early wealth accumulation in life.

Gov. DavidUmahi of #EbonyiState has revealed how he became a billionaire at 25 years of age due to hard work and commitment to duty.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Umahi made the declaration while interacting with leaders of #Abakpa main market in #Abakaliki.

He debunked social media reports that he owns shops at the market and built his house within one year.

“I work very hard, I am not a poor person but a very, very rich person. You can’t use the state’s money and still do all these things (projects) we are doing, I don’t have any shop or any interest in the market,” he added.

My people, did you understand how he did that? Did you see what I can’t see? Maybe you read a part where he talked about how he made it happen, because I didn’t. Talk about a grown up weirdness. If you weren’t intending to explain the way this whole talk was beneficial to us all, why then did you even start it? The EFCC should carefully look into this talk and have him explain himself very well to them because we don’t understand it.

Openly saying this whole your fellow state men and women lavish in abject poverty is disturbing and unbelievably bold in a time like this where the fear of EFCC is the beginning of wisdom.

Will Nigeria ever produce pencil in 2020 as promised?

pencil pallet

It is a question many will misunderstand as Shade rather than the required check for those of us who didn’t follow up after years ago when the aanouncemenr for this production was made. Many will say like it was said back then that while other countries are producing gadgets, speed of light trains, self running cars, and 5G networks, most expensive cars and so much more, Nigeria is boldly making a pencil announcement about making pencil in a year as advance as 2020.

Now let me say something very significant in life. The fact that other countries, people or a group of people are a thousand miles ahead of you, doesn’t stop you from going a head with your own pace and achievements in life.

I will not even deny the fact that when this announcement was made in 2016 I was one of those people that couldn’t fathom the actual significance of that activity because I considered it an evidence of backwardness and disgrace. But from that time to now, I will proudly say that alot have collectively changed my mindset from what it used to be to what it is right now.

I am proud to let you all know that while you were going through stresses of life and so much goal achieving tasks, trying to settle down, have a child, make money and opening up a business, the country had actually down what it said it would.

As of August 31st 2019, on revealed that the Federal Government of Nigeria, actually started the installation of the pencil production machine. Please note that you can read all about this by clicking on the link provided above. So in case you were wondering if the FG of Nigeria can actually be reliable in some cases then you can find/decide that for yourself by having a read on that.

#KimK joins forces with #sisters to roll out a new and exciting #kkwfrangrance


Despite all the public and show enhancing altercations, misunderstandings, fights and competitions the Kardashian sisters are not one to let go of a business opportunity due to a bad relationship with a sibling.

They have proven for over a decade now, that they have what it takes to be the most interesting family in the world. Even the wealthy middle eastern families have got nothing on these girls and they are definitely not showing any signs of stopping.

Business Woman

Now, that’s what I call the strong woman trait. They came from something small, and now they are here. Despite the beauty and class, they have converted the hate and mockery thrown at them into something everyone wishes to emulate. Just take a look and Kim juggling Motherhood and business like a pro.

Mistresses of the Trade

To me, in my opinion here is never going to be another family of our generation with such collective strength and tenacity to stay so on point consistently for just a long time. Kim, now a mother of four herself is a household of businesses all to her name and still counting.

This is only a prove that you can actually do everything you want in this life to be honest. Kim is an inspiration despite all said and done over the years, because this family will teach you the good, the bad and the ugly, and only you can decide on which of these lessons to take home.

Look at the beautiful choice of hair… 👌💣🙆‍♀️

One advice I have for every girl out there today, is to just monitor the business minds and ways of these family and leave the other aspects that is not exactly admirable.

Mimick the business ways of the Kardashians/Jenners and see if this won’t work for you — Oby Oriji

From your favourite blogger

The way they are constantly releasing same things in different ways and still having fans rush at it is admirable and this is down to prevent seeming boring and uninteresting to their young hearted fans.

Come onnnnn Girls… 😋😋😋

With that being said, Kim is changing up the bottle of her perfumes with new contents and making a big announcement to get fans back on her site buying it like a hot cake. But do you think it can work? The answer is “Absolutely” . The same thing Kylie does for her cosmetic lines and same goes for other things they produce in that family. You go and check it out. They have something to teach everyone entrepreneur and I am Learning. Believe me.

from @kimkardashian – Beyond excited to announce the new @kkwfragrance Diamonds Collection by Kourtney x Kim x ME! Creating the KKW Fragrance Diamonds Collection with Kim and Kourtney was so inspiring. I wanted to create a fragrance that feels feminine, sexy and strong when I wear it. It’s such a dreamy scent with a mix of sweet florals and musk that can be worn from day to night. I’ve been wearing this non-stop and love it more and more every day. Launching on 11.08 at 12PM PST at KKWFRAGRANCE.COM #DiamondsCollection

Depts pile up: World Bank approves $3bn loan for Nigeria


There have been reactions from all around the country as Man are wondering what way the future generations along side the current ones  are going pay back these Depts that are so freely given to Nigeria. A country that has done so much for the old leaders when they were youths, who are still leaders up till now, still collecting from the same country that hasn’t done a thing for the current youths. One generation has held this country hostage for almost 60years and there are still no signs that they will be passing/handing over the power to a much younger generation. The fact that we were talking about the dept that is hanging over the country, and now a very new dept has now been approved for the country. Phew!!! We are not getting out of this in a long while are we?

According to news, The World Bank has agreed to give Nigeria a $3 billion loan for the expansion of the transmission and distribution facilities of the power sector, Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, has revealed.

According to her, the loan would be disbursed in four tranches of $750m each beginning from next year and it would cover the funding gap as well as the current tariff which investors in the sector had described as very low compared to what is obtainable in other countries.

“It will also enhance our ability to pay previous obligations in the sector that has crystallised so that investors in the sector can go on with expanding investments in the sector,” she added.

She noted that some portion of the loan will be for the transmission network, adding that if the government can expand the facility to $4bn, then the additional $1bn will be used for the distribution network.

“The distribution sector will be at the backend when the other reforms have been carried out. It will be a loan to the distribution companies because they are owned by the private sector,” she concluded.

Minister of Communication roars loud as #MTN sends Nigerians a message concerning #USSD charges



Dear Nigerians do like this 🤚👋👆☝️🤚🤚if MTN sent you a message that looked like this today 20th October 2019?

Yello, Please note that from Oct 21, we will charge N4 per 20 seconds for USSD access to banking services. Thank you. 

The Minister of Communication, Dr. Isa Ibrahim Pantami who received the message as well as every other MTN sim using Nigerian, has quickly said that he was not aware of an alleged plan by MTN Nigeria to start charging four Kobo for USSD service beginning from Monday, October 21.

Some telecoms subscribers alleged that, on Sunday, they received text messages from their service providers informing them that those who use unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) channels to access banking services would have to pay new charges as from October 21.

I bet with this raise dflag, MTN will not be commencing that charge plan anymore tomorrow. You should go through the right channel, and you should grease the right palm before greasing yours with our hard earned  4 Naira.

Economic potholes: Central Bank of Nigeria, the giant #shrewd that keeps on taking


There is always that saying that those of dish it out, hardly take it in.when a person is said to be a leader of a group of people, they are always advised to pratice what they preach. All that money being taken from Nigerians on a daily and monthly basis is going to pockets that we might never know about, but then a gain, isn’t there some spare change in all these money that just might be enough for central bank to do one development program for Nigerians youths annually. Why isn’t central doing the very least to help out with the current poverty stricken life styles of over 200 million Nigerians. Imagine the amount that banks make on a monthly basis, then imagine the amount that central bank being a collector takes.

You will hardly find central bank sponsoring shows, programs whether tv or radio. When it comes to going after a bank that has  fallen short in the course of maximizing profit, or those that have escaped  From the trap of central bank once again and stand the change of a construct. One would think that their it is a witch hunting of people in this situation especially the uniform man.


If you look at the ways these Nigerian banks keep coming up with ways to capture the attention of their customers, giving them the chance to win one thing of the other, mostly the money and mouth watering gifts, you would think that their brother as big as Central Bank of Nigeria, would be even more to have to help better the lives of  Nigerians, but then a gain, that is something that Nigerians have not come to see in the longest time now.
