Lagosians Are You Feeling Gov. Ambode's Impact Yet?




I remember being in Rivers state weeks ago, on Wike's hundredth day in office. Radio stations were abuzz with phone calls from indigenes, the satisfied and dissatisfied alike. Some were calling for Governor Wike's head; It's been 100 days in office and we've yet to see any substantial thing he has done. In truth, some admitted that while there were signs of his presence, he should have achieved more by now
     Now this makes me wonder about my own state of residence. It's being much longer than those 100 days and I'm left with a feeling similar to one you get after eating a much anticipated plate of your favourite meal and realizing that for some reason your belly is hollow and still empty. And no, this isn't because he was allegedly at Quilox nightclub boogying it down a few nights ago.  

I see okada riders plying express roads with reckless abandon and astounding impunity. Heavy duty vehicles are still roaming the roads at all hours and trailers are falling. It seems it's goodbye to the respect formerly accorded to BRT as any vehicle is allowed to ride on its lanes. I see no road works being done and the roads are actually getting worse by the hour. I don't know if I've been out of Lagos so much in the last for months that I've missed the "workings" of our Governor, or if they're just not there!

It's for this reason I'm asking you Lagosians/residents of Lagos (before someone points out to me that I'm not a Lagosian), if you're feeling Ambode's impact yet? If you were to assess him, perhaps write his report card, based on your observation of him in his months in office, what would it read like?

  1. I'm not feeling Ambode's administration rara, and i just hope that by May 29 2016, we would have seen some significant improvements in Lagos state.

  3. Nothing. Nothing whatsoever. Ambode is a mistake and unless this mistake is rectified soonest, APC can just forget about Lagos in the future.

  4. No. No impact whatsoever. With each passing day, I'm grateful I didnt vote that day. Lastma has relaxed, the concept of BRT lane is now a joke(just go to CMS any work day morning), people breaking the law left, right, and centre with audacious impunity and I'm wondering, what exactly is Ambode doing? Nothing has changed since he was elected. In fact, things have gone from good to worse since he came in. Like Memphis stated, if APC doesn't talk sense into his head and tell him to sit up, they can forget Lagos state come 2019. Anyone but Ambode.

    1. Sunshine,Lastman didn't relax on their own accord.I heard from some bus drivers sometime ago that the governor ordered that Lastman shouldn't disturb them anymore.To say I was surprised that day is an understatement.

    2. Ambode told lastma to 'book' erring motorists instead of arresting them. Imagine that in a state/country where we have no systems and structures to support booking/issuing of tickets to traffic offenders. Drivers don't respect Police because they can be bought cheaply and the only reason they respected lastma officials was the one thing that has now been taken away from them - the power to arrest offenders and charge them high penalty. I am not saying that booking offenders isn't better but not with our present lack of supporting systems.

      I am not disappointed because from day one, I was not expecting Ambode to perform. He just doesn't come across to me as a performer. I hope he disappoints me though.

  5. Gov Ambode is as useless as the "p" in the word psychiatric(for now though).He is seriously sleeping on a bicycle,I hope he wakes up soon & get to work.

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…

#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

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.

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.
