It is too costly and people are complaining every day…If you go to other countries, even countries that are not as largely populated as Nigeria, data prices are not this high…I am also a victim of some of the infractions that are so common in the industry. You load your data, but you barely used 20 percent of it and the entire data is wiped off.”

#Breaking: Lagos State Governor Sanwo Olu announces his decision to drop the title, “Your Excellency”

lagosstategovt-1573062500172

Reposted from @lagosstategovt – Announcing my decision to drop the title, “Your Excellency”

In the last five months that I have been privileged to exercise the mandate freely given to me by the great and hardworking people of Lagos State, it has come to my consciousness to review certain features of citizen-government relations which impede the genuine expression of the democratic spirit of our society and the meaningful exercise of the sovereignty of our people. The office of the Governor has been celebrated as the paragon of excellence, a temple of perfection and a throne of purity. This demi-god mystique spreads over the entire machinery of the executive arm of the government, symbolising an authoritarian disposition on the governed. It has deformed the orientation of elected and appointed persons who are paid from the taxes of the people to see themselves as oppressors who can do no wrong and must be served, rather than serve the people.
Whatever might have been the reason for this myth, let us be honest, the office is occupied by a mortal who has been called upon to serve the electorate with humility – and sincerity. The office of Governor is a public trust that calls for sacrifice, modesty and willingness to add value to the lives of the people. Fellow Lagosians, I have come to the conclusion that for us to change the narrative of governance, we have to strike down this seeming symbol of executive arrogance that commands popular obeisance and undermines the democratic role of citizens as the masters of those they have elected and appointed to serve. It is a conviction that I believe will send the right signals to all politicians and civil servants that service to the people has brought us here. It is the duty we are obliged to do. It is the responsibility that we bear wherever we find ourselves; whenever we are called to serve.
Only God, the Almighty, the Creator, the Protector is the Most Excellent. No man can share His eternal qualities. Thenceforth, I wish to be addressed simply as Mr. Governor, a title that will constantly remind me that I have been chosen out of so many fellow compatriots to lead a collective salvage of our political economy….#LASG#ForAGreaterLagos

Hours later #Balogun market fire continues into the night

It is one thing for some group of people to ensure that this horror is taken out on the innocent Market people, it is another thing for the proactiveness of the government and people to be this poor, so poor that hours later, the fire is still on and going this strong. This goes to show just how unprepared this country is for anything at all.

Sweetrecovery: #Selmablair Celebrates a healthy batch of new hair

selmablair-1572982163631

from @selmablair – For those few interested at an in depth look at hair growth ,post chemotherapy for #hsct. I cut my hair short to transition myself and my son for impending baldness. Easy. Baldness came. I didn’t shave head to that end. Of course it fell out. Shiny. Pale dome. Nice enough. It took two months to begin regrowth And it came in fine and pale and very sparse. I shaved it. It looked too sad. For me. I let it grow back. It was patchy in color and I felt like dying it brown. Ridiculous! I really only succeeded in dying my scalp. After a week, I buzzed shorter with clippers and a few weeks later, here we are 🙌. A thinnish, patchy charcoal head. I will see how a pixie grows in. Or I will buzz again. It seems to be too much to have long hair again. So I will leave it short and grey, something I have never before wanted to do. I equated it with giving up. And maybe giving up long, brown hair, complete with time consuming and expensive highlights and lowlights isn’t necessarily a give up. Give in. Embrace. Sure. I’ll try it. Unless…some fancy pants company with a thick checkbook wants to entice me out of dye retirement. Then I will sing about the glories of processed hair! I certainly will. So, until that wished for day, enjoy the head 💋 #buzzed #saltandpepperhair #showingmyroots #thecomeback

#Borderclosure #NigeriaMarketArsonists: Days after Maiduguri major market fire, fire engulfs Lagos major Market #Balogun

images (4)

Nodody in this world right now can convince me that since the border closure in August, all the abnormally frequent fire cases happening uncontrollably all around the markets in Nigeria is natural.

A group of people have definitely decided to be the nation’s arsonists who are passively but dangerously protesting this border closure. They are destroying the remaining economy with fire, and sending people back into poverty. No. This country is not one to successfully curb this act, and Yes… A very huge number and prominent people will be behind this distasteful act of market arsonists.

#Single: Dear Guys, #EmmaWatson is finally done with y’all.

entertainmenttonight-1572979705770

You men have the very best way of pushing buttons and driving everyone crazy, and now you all have pushed the one that belongs to this beauty and brain badass Emma, and now she is not going to bother herself with trying for one more time. You men have broken my girl Emma. Not cool 🙄😔💔.

The actress and activist has said that she prefers to be called “self-partnered” rather than the widely accepted term of the society known as being single as she approaches the big 30. In preparation to joining the dirty thirty, Miss Watson invented the phrase while granting her interview to British Vogue.

“If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety,” she said. Although Watson said she never believed the “‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” she added: “It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.” (📸: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images)

The 1989 and 1990 kids are currently Goign through this same societal pressure as they begin to turn 30 this year and next, and there hy undergoing that immense pressure formed from the expectation cast on them by the society we have found ourselves in.

from @lewishamilton – Six World Championships!! I can’t begin to describe this feeling, but it’s one I’ll never forget. As a kid growing up in Stevenage, it was a wish to win an F1 race and a dream to win a Championship, so to be standing here today representing my country, is such an incredible honour and beyond what I could have ever imagined. If just one kid sees me standing here and decides to follow their dream, no matter what it may be, nothing would make me more proud.

I wouldn’t be here without so many of you, my amazing family – especially my dad who taught me to never give up, my friends, my team at @mercedesamgf1 and my fans. You’ve been with me on this journey from the start and it’s because of you that I stay focused and determined. I’m forever grateful from the bottom of my heart for every single one of you for your constant support, encouragement and love. This season is for Niki Lauda, my incredible friend and mentor who we lost this year, who proved that courage and determination go hand in hand. This one’s for you, Niki. I’ll continue to make you proud.

Ministry paid N800m without contract —Witness at Fani-Kayode’s trial

punchnewspapers-1572815516345

There will always be that Nigerian who will embezzle some outrageous amount of money and they will go through all the ups and downs of an endless Nigerian trial only to come to an abrupt hault without any form of explanation and suddenly they are running wild and free all around Nigeria without a fair or deserving reason why their trials have suddenly stopped and why they are all still driving their luxury cars and owning their homes freely.

Now that yet another outrageous misappropriation has occurred, we are wondering if there will be a difference in the is case than we are use to as N
The N4.9bn fraud trial of a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and three others resumed on Tuesday with a prosecution witness, Shehu Shuaibu, telling the court how the Ministry of External Affairs paid N800m to Joint Trust Dimensions Limited without any evidence of contract.
Joint Trust Dimensions Limited is the 4th defendant in the charge, in which a former Minister of State for Finance, Nenadi Usman; Fani-Kayode; and one Danjuma Yusuf, were listed as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd defendants, respectively.

NAF CONDUCTS COUNTER TERRORISM EXERCISE

-1572814372393

Reposted from @nigerianairforce –

ENHANCING INTERNAL SECURITY:  NAF CONDUCTS COUNTER TERRORISM EXERCISE ALONG KADUNA-BIRNIN GWARI ROAD

As part of its continued efforts geared towards developing the capacity of its personnel to combat terrorism and secure lives and properties of Nigerians, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) today, 28 October 2019, conducted a Counter Terrorism (CT) Simulation Exercise along Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road.

The Exercise, code named “EXERCISE NA ZO”, was aimed at testing NAF operational doctrine and tactics for effective CT operations as well as evaluating the synergy between air and surface forces in a complex air-ground operational environment. The CT Exercise (CTEX) involved NAF Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms as well as attack aircraft along with NAF Special Forces (SF) and Canine (K-9) Teams, who were practiced on their individual and group skills in the planning, coordination and execution of CT operations.


Speaking during the Exercise, the Special Guest of Honour (SGOH), Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Abayomi Olonisakin, highlighted the critical importance of training and exercises to a fighting force, like the NAF, towards ensuring greater success in combat operations. According to him, the NAF had blazed the trail by ensuring that its personnel are engaged in exercises that evolve lessons, tactics and doctrine in the conduct of CT operations.  Gen Olonisakin stated that, as a Service vested with the enviable role of protecting the territorial integrity of Nigeria by air, the timing of the Exercise was apt, affording the NAF the opportunity to assess the physical alertness and combat readiness of its personnel with a view to making necessary adjustments and changes. “Even more important is the fact that an event of this nature is being organized at a time the NAF and its sister Services are engaged in counterinsurgency (COIN) operations in the Northeastern part of Nigeria as well as Anti-banditry in the North West and North Central”, he said.
The CDS seized the opportunity to express his profound appreciation to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (C-in-C), President Muhammadu Buhari, for his continued support.
