Xenophobic Attacks. Ali Baba Suggests...



Thoughts?


And why is our government always silent on matters that involve the lives of its citizens? When you come to think about it, these South Africans have been raping us for years and the "government" never does anything. That's why I applauded those two men who took DSTV to court over the rise in monthly charges (The court ordered an Interim Injunction restraining them from raising the tariffs, which Multi Choice brazenly FLOUTED by the way), It's like it's each man for himself, government for none in Nigeria. 



Comments

  1. We should worry, cry, and even carry placards that our government doesn't care about our brothers and sisters in diaspora be it Togo or Niger! They don't even give a damn about what happens. See why we should be careful about what we say. As much as some South Africans "hated" foreigners, one of the Kings comments fuelled their anger. If not that Nigerians have a way of being one in times of trouble, all of them there would have died. They are carrying the duty of protecting themselves. The President is meant to at least give a national report but NO. I've concluded he is in support as Silence is Consent. Every man for himself, God for us all.

    Dunno why I can't view pictures here. I'm glad the comment box opened today sef.

  2. I hope this new change comes with replacing all foreign multinationals with indigenous companies. Nigerians are brilliant people but the govt has refused invest in its own people. They will fold their arms and watch the attacks provided their immediate family members are not affected.

  3. BTW...If Malawi can make arrangements to repatriate not less than 400 of their citizens at once, why not Nigeria? Seeing Alibabas comment, if all of this doesn't stop in even 24 hours,we should boycott all of their stores. As much as it isn't their fault, it is our way of fighting back especially as they rip us off. We will survive. Whats more annoying is the fact that this same South Africa has suffered from Apartheid and racism in the past. How easy do we forget?

  4. People should stop judging South Africans for killing immigrants because from what I've seen in the last weeks lagosians will do the same to Igbos if dey have the chance.

  5. @ anon, Be careful with you utterances. If you cannot learn from what is happening around the world then you are grossly ignorant.

    In times like this, if you cannot preach unity, love, acceptance with everythn going on, kindly practise the virtue of silence. Do not ignite unnecessary tension in an already tense times.

    We must all learn from the things happening around us. If we do not learn to tolerate and accept one another here in Nigeria, we will learn the hard way like in Rwanda.

    @ Thelma, I strongly suggest that you delete any comment that tends to associate one tribe or the other with anythn negative. I'm sick and tired of all the tribalism creeping up on our generation and if not watched, with the help of social media, will burn us all. Trust me if we let this hatred consume us, no tribe will be spared from the bloodshed. J

  6. I don't agree with shutting down these businesses because a lot of Nigerians would be affected. It's not as if only South Africans work in MTN, Multichoice etc.

    It is very unfortunate that we don't have a government that stands up for its citizens in times like this. What do we expect? A government that could not protect its citizens in their own country can do very little for its citizens living in foreign lands.

    I hope this madness stops in good time before things really go entirely out of control.

  8. 1) the placard "Africa for Africans" means Africa is a no-mans land to fellow Africans???

    2) before u try to boycott or sanction SA companies here,pls remember they have greatly and directly affected our umemployment rate

    3) the way we treat ourselves in our country wld influence how foreigners wld treat us in their own country. We spew a lot of tribalistic hate on social media and expect love from foreigners?

    4) it's so sad how SA forget their history of Apartheid and the help Nig rendered them.

    5) the govt of SA shld speak and act up. It has a duty to protect both its citizens and it's immigrants.

    6) all Nig govt shld do is repatriate it's citizens cos I think we benefit a lot (more) from SA than the other way round

  9. Sasha, the way they benefit from us is the way we benefit from them. Checked out the number of big stores, oil refineries that accomodate lots there? If need be, it isn't a bad idea to boycott. We will survive.

  10. I was in SA last year for a training. On arrival at about 4.30 am dat sunday morning, I greeted the female immigration officer a simple good morning, she did not acknowledge it, rather she rudely asked for my pp and other doc. After checking with a serious frown on her face, she handed back the docs and pp to me, and in my well breed manner I said thank you, she bone as if na me cause her life frustration. At this point, I was so pissed, and I said Ass hole and walked away, my boss who was at the other booth with another immigration officer heard me and asked what d issue was, when I told him, he said I haven't seen anything yet. That South Africans hate dr fellow Africans with a passion that he just couldn't comprehend why
    It's a pity that the same people who we stood by during apartheid will turn around to start hurting us. Yes, their Companies provide employment for our people, but the plus is more at their end cus dey generate so much revenue from all their businesses here. Don't be fooled, most staff in SA owned companies are on contract. Their contract can be terminated at anytime of the day.
    Thank God that I'm able to comment today.

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

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!

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
