DEAR Nigerian, have you obtained your national I.D?

NATional Identification number

Hi Guys, good evening from Nigeria. Oby Oriji here, for National Identification number.

So with the issue of National haven gotten to our ears for almost 5 years now, many have not gotten the essence of its existence until the news broke the second quarter of the year,  that you can no longer renew your international passport without your national identification number. I remembered doing this same process in 2014 before graduating from the university, but I wasn’t really sure if that was the same thing they were talking about. With my international passport about to expire, I quick went straight to the NIMC office to obtain mine. Not expecting to the process to be simple, I mean, this is Lagos Nigeria. But when I went there, I immediately became aware of  the level of importance this had in the lives of Nigerians. I could see the market women, youths and old men who were suddenly  aware of the card. But I equally became aware of the fact that the literate or well educated members of the Society had not gotten theirs, while these others went for theirs.

So the question today for only Nigerians is, have you gotten your national I.D? If you are a foreigner reducing in Nigeria, then this is not for you. But if you as a foreigner was born in this Country, making you a Nigerian by birth, then you too should go for it.

NIMC office is located right opposite Ikeja City mall in Ikeja, for those who haven’t gotten yours, you should go there very early in the morning with a form of I.D and your BVN. But for those who don’t  have any Nigerian I.D, you should go with an ATM card, and a passport photograph to get captioned. People arrive their very early in the morning, do they can finish in time.

If you also have done it before in the past years, probably 2012,2013,2014,   but have never gotten the card, then visit them and go find out how to get it. In those years there wasn’t any BVN number,  you can Also do that when you arrive at the office. This isn’t the only office for registration Snic collection of card, do please find out others. If you also live on the island, locate the office closest to you.  Make sure you look as good as you would want to see on your card.  Go get your national identification number.

from NIMC.

Thank you google: Google pays Homage to Nigerian Legendary Novelist Late Professor Chinua Achebe on what would have been his 87th birthday.

igboamaaka-1510849892882

from @igboamaaka – “Until the Lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always praise the hunter.”
Professor Chinua Achebe’s pen brought to life the land and traditions of Ndi #Igbo: the hum of everyday village life; the anticipation and excitement of sacred masquerades; the stories of the elders and the honor of warriors; the joy of family and the grief of loss.

Considered by many to be the father of modern African literature, Achebe was awarded the Man Booker Prize in 2007. Surrounded by iconic images of his most famous literary works, today’s (16.11.17) Google Doodle celebrates his legacy on what would have been his 87th birthday.

Nna anyi Chinụalụmọgụ Achebe, Happy 87th Birthday! 🎊
Daalụ rine.
@Google, Daalụ nu.
Igbo Kwenụ! Kachaanụ!

Humanity need: What to do with your Sunday left overs in Nigeria.

newproject_1_original

Hi Guys, so since many readers of Oby Oriji blog aren’t from Nigeria, I will let you know what a typical Nigerian Sunday food looks like. Before advising my Nigerian people on what to do with their leftovers.

In Nigeria, a none written and oral rule has existed for as long as anyone can remember. Since half of Nigeria’s population are Christians, there is a huge attendance of church services on Sundays. After that, they are known to gather as a family to consume the famous Nigerian rice. They come in various ways depending on the part of the Country you find yourself.

On Sunday in the Northern part of the Country, White rice is boiled and eaten with chicken, goat meat,beef, ice fish or dried fish, offals or stockfish stew. Theses could be combined with fried plantain, boiled beans and eggs. Since fresh vegetables are grown in the North, the Northerners normally eat their rice with Spinach, lettuce, cabbage, Ugo. In the south, there is a high consumption of Nigerian jollof rice a.k.a party rice. Some eat Jollof with the ultimate ingredient (Bay Leaf) present, others have it garnished with carrots, green peas and beans,amongst other basic spices. Visit My friend sisiyemmie.com to access her various recipes for a delicious Nigerian Jollof.

But today we will look at how to handle leftovers in our homes. In Nigeria these days, a lot of families, especially kids go to bed on an empty stomach while keeping it a secret. Families that have, can always help families that don’t. It is equally a tradition to have most Nigerian kids eat rice for lunch on Mondays which is as a result of the over flow from Sunday. But we are very much aware that it is not every household that has kids to help consume the left over rice the next day. For those who are stuck with their left over with no babies to take them to school and consume.

This is the category we are dealing with. For the sake of humanity, you might not have the non sufficient (‘have nots’) come up to you to share their challenges with you, or embarrassingly ask her food out of their pride.

So if you look around you carefully,paying attention to details, you will see that a lot of Nigerians are suffering. So please, don’t give your leftovers to your over fed dogs,cats pigs, or over fed kids, there are a lot of humans who need it to survive. Take away packs (Take out plastics), are everywhere you can think of in the Country, and even flooding in homes that eat out. Use them to package the leftover rice neatly with or without meat, and give out the plates of food to these needy people in the neighbourhood.

While doing it, please try not to take pictures and videos to prove to the world that you are being kind and generous to the needy. It is between you and God, let him pay back your good deeds his own way. You should know that it is not between you and social media users who you are hoping to get likes and follows from,like some well known celebrities. Do it in the secret, no one needs to know.
Hand the filled plates to the needy humans in your community, streets, or neighbourhood and leave them alone. Don’t pull out a phone for a quick snap or video. That is how you can handle your leftovers after Sunday, or other times you have more than enough to eat. Help the poor out there, and stay low key.
