A Blog Reader's Views On The State Of Things.


The post below is not a representation of my thoughts, opinions or views. It was not written by me but sent to me by a blog reader. The ONLY reason I am posting this is because I encourage people to share their views, also I do like conversation and healthy debates. I neither agree nor disagree with the contents of this post. 







# Nigeria is really getting interesting.. Fellow compatriots,
we need not shout nor fight ourselves. President
Goodluck Johnathan is a good man as a person, his
simplicity and gentlemanness is second to none.
*He has given us his very BEST over the last 6 years. I
mean, what else are we asking for?
*He has granted Alameisiya 'STATE PARDON' and my guy
is now running for Senate.
*He allowed Fayoose to distrupt a court session and beat
up a judge, while he walks freely. I wonder if Nigeria is
sane. *He locked up the house of rep from the entrance
of the CONSTITUTIONAL speaker of that house.
*7 law makers impeached a speaker in Ekiti in a house of
about 26 men, and nothing happened.
*16 was suddenly greater than 19 in base 10, just to
cancel the one-term agreement he signed with the
NIGERIA Governors' Forum and all Nigerians in 2011.
*Subsidy has been removed and the standards in our
hospitals have reduced with time.
*$20 billion is missing and minister of Petroleum eats
and dines with the prexy. 
*Another BIGGER & BOLDER
subsidy is scheduled for 1st of June, 2015 and you may
have to sell your laptop charger before you can buy fuel
to charge that same laptop!!!
* Earlier this year, over 22 innocent Nigerians were killed
in the job scam organized by the Nigerian Immigration
Service(NIS) . The Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, told us
the job interrwas "simply mismanaged" and he has
retained his office and even with extra luggage.
*1 Naira used to be equal $1.2 under #GMB but now it's
#186.5 to just $1, the worst ever in our history.
* Madam Gele, Ngozi Okonjo, just told us we need an
extra $5 billion, through debts of course, so that our
economy will not collapse like Humpty-Dumpty.
*While Benue State University was on an unending
internal strike killing the future of poor Nigerians, Senator
DAVID MARK (son of the soil) built his own PRIVATE
UNIVERSITY, of course with tax payers' money, and my
gentle president followed him to launch the school
shamelessly.
*He has spent all money in the treasury and even had to
BORROW an extra $1 billion but #BokoHaram keeps
getting more equipped than our military.
*Over 200 girls are missing, over 15,000 killed by #
BokoHaram, over 6 million displaced from their homes and
uncountable injured beyond repairs yet my president went
to a a meeting in #KENYA with 7 different PRIVATE
JETS.. *clears throat...
* # PHCN(or the different synonyms they call themselves these days) is giving their loyal customers GENERATORS as
gifts for paying their # electricity bills on time..Grab your
COPY NOW!!! .
That's less than 1% of the reasons we need to dance to a
new SHOKI, this AWILO is no more wulo for us. Cheers to
an unstoppable change..
If you truly love Nigeria share with everyone
# together we can build # a new Nigeria.
# change is possible.

  1. Some people haven't gotten their voters' card because, perhaps it's the least of their problems. Some have gotten theirs but have no interest in voting. Dear poster, sadly the change we seek will massively reflect at the poles by February 2015 and that doesn't seem to be happening with the attitude we've displayed so far. It's an attitude that's extremely tiring to behold on a daily basis. GOD help us.

  2. I really wish citizens of this country would show interest to the well being of their nation. There is Fire on the Mountain and no one seems to be On the Run.
    "So far I can go to work and I'm paid enuff to feed my family, buy fuel in my generator, fuel my car, pay my house rent. One Day I will get one big Hit that would give me enuf to Build a house, then I'm okay" thoughts of an average well educated Nigerian. I hope it doesn't get to the point where Violence won't be just Boko Haram And the South South militants but every single nigerian killing demselves just to Eat on the streets.
    Atleast we can change that now.

  3. Hmmmmmm... if this country was 'working' well, we'll have less issues to worry about. I have my voter's card and I'm waiting to see the outcome of the elections.

  5. I love a healthy debate.
    My bible said 2 cannot walk together unless they are in agreement.
    Is Nigeria really a united country or do be just preach unity? BH is bombing the north cos they don't want western education bla bla,the east still chants Biafra,the ND want complete resource control and u think we are united? America is called the United States cos the 51 states agreed to be and stay together as one. An attack on a person/state is an attack on America. Nig is truly on a very long route to practice such unity.
    I remeber the time an eastener had to score above 200 to enter a federal Second skl but the same wasn't for the northerner.
    To get a job in Nig,u need a 2:2 and above and some connections but to run a country u just need SSCE? Hmm
    Between the devil and the deep blue sea,theres always a lesser evil. Nig's are wiser now than they were in '99 and beyond. Choose wisely...

  7. Lest I might add,Think of what u can do for Nig and not what Nig (GEJ or Buhari or APC or PDP) wld do for u...Choose wisely. (and enjoy this Xmas very well cos 2015 is truly unpredictable)

    I can't stress it enough. The youths in this country sadden me.

    When will we wake up from our slumber.

  10. Am so upset wt APC. They should have encouraged younger, more trusting candidates. Even our so called elder states men, they should have come together and brought forth a candidate without so much controversies. I am tired of Jonathan, I def want a change. But I also do not want Buhari!

  11. Nice points by the posters, it looks like GEJ might still win and Nigeria will just continue being Messy, i don't know who am going to vote for thou

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
