BUSTED! Office of the Chief Economic Adviser Posts A Picture of Northern Foreshore Estate, Lekki As One Of Jonathan’s 2400 North East Housing Achievement

GEJ housing
I am a regular visitor to the Northern Foreshore Estate, Lekki. When I was showed this document (see below) as one of the achievements of the president in the North East, I was immediately concerned about the similarities with the Northern Foreshore Estate, in Lekki. You can compare pictures of the estate against the image in the document prepared by the office of the Chief Economic Adviser to President Jonathan, Dr. Nwanze Okidegbe. Reno Omokri and his goons have been spreading this image as one of the successes of the president in the North East but it is indeed a private project in Lekki, Lagos. Residents or visitors to Northern Foreshore Estate, Lekki will immediately notice the semblance of the image on the government document with the estate. It is indeed not a semblance, it is the estate as we have since established.

God Answers All Prayers? Strippers Praying Together Before Climbing The Pole.

I stumbled on this photos of strippers praying backstage online this morning, and it really intrigued me. Instead of me voicing just my own opinion on these pictures, I thought it would be good to open up the floor for debate 
Do you think this photo is a good or bad thing? Why? Should there be a problem with exotic dancers praying before stripping on stage for men in a club? Surely God answers all? 
However, I strongly believe that God does hear the prayers of sinners, and we are all technically sinners through our thoughts, actions and deeds e.t.c. 

It’s Not Easy To Be One Of KSA’s Many Wives –Queen Ahneva

Queen Ahneva Adegeye

Queen Ahneva Adegeye, African American wife of legendary juju musician, King Sunny Ade tells ‘Nonye Ben-Nwankwo how she came to Nigeria and her love for Africa
It seems you have always loved fashion?
I have always loved fashion and African fashion in particular. I was the President of Black Students Union when I was in high school. One of the mandates for my presidency was to create events that would help connect African Americans to the African heritage. It was mandatory for you to wear something African to every event. I found myself making all sorts of African wears and dresses.
But you hadn’t even visited Africa then?
No. I was just connected. I always had this drumming in my ear even when I was a little girl. I would always hear the sound ‘boom boom boom’ in my ears. It was the sound of a drum. It was an African rhythm. I would tell my parents about it. My father told me one day that my ancestors were the ones calling me back home.
So did the drumming stop when you got to Africa?
Oh yes it did. When I first got to Nigeria, I knelt down as soon as I stepped out of the aircraft, I prostrated and I kissed the ground. I was so drawn to being home and I was happy I kissed the ground. I went to the slave dungeons in Cape Coast, Ghana. I was there with the Association for Study of African Classical Civilisation. We had a symposium and part of our tour was to go to the slave dungeon. The women among us went to the prison where the females were kept. There was a door of ‘no return’ that all of our ancestors went out through when they were sold. They said anybody who went out from that door never came back home. I was supposed to go with everybody else after that session but I didn’t.

Anyone who can afford the good things of life will find living in Banana Island a foretaste of what paradise looks like. It is a statement in opulent living and lifestyle. 

Little wonder this island has become the most prefered abode of the rich.  Many years ago, Banana Island distinguished itself as a 

no go area for the middle class, leaving the rest of Lagos such as Ikeja GRA, Victoria Island and Lekki for the average millionaires in Lagos. A first time visitor to this island is greeted by the sight of well laid lawns with beautiful flowers and well paved roads. The 

quietude and untainted environment is a major attraction as well. Beautiful trees are also planted in canopy form to serve as umbrella and to supply fresh air.

Fresh facts have emerged regarding the reasons the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State of Osun opted for a smaller venue to host the party’s presidential campaign team in the centre of the town, instead of the city stadium.

of large turnout at the rally.
Unlike in some PDP-dominated states like Akwa-Ibom, Enugu, where rallies were held at the stadia, the one in Ibadan was held at the Mapo Hall area, while that of Osogbo was held at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park.

Humility + Wisdom + Faith + Diligence = Success...."For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

A friend of my tells the story of a time when his wife was out of town and he had to take care of their three small children by himself. Being a psychologist, he was usually pretty good with them and understood their needs. On this particular morning, however, their little girl was pushing him past the limit.
He was trying to get them off to school, and she was lollygagging. He nagged her a few times but she did not pick up her pace. Slowly, he began to get angry. He could hear her in her room, still playing and not getting ready at all. Her defiance was really irritating him.
He was on his way in there to let her have it when he stopped in his tracks. If this were one of my clients, what would I do? he asked himself. I would find out what is causing this behavior. He thought about it for a moment, and then he had it. She usually had this time in the morning to spend with her mother. He walked into his daughter's room, stooped down, and with his hands on her shoulders, looked her right in the eye.
