Okay Tee. Since you are not currently in Nigeria our country, I have

political to entertainment to gossip and even rumours back to back.



I am in a good mood this month.

Why?

1. I am alive(vivian)

I was given excellent... Woooow. Half way to getting my desired A. Six
credits load no be here o
3. Yaaaay I subscribed fully till November.(haven't done that for like
6 months now) You know that feeling when you are assured that you will
be online till mama calls. .. hehehe
4. Ahhhhhh am a talkative abi, no mind me joor.


.

LOL Vivian thanks for sharing, I'm waiting for your posts ooooo! 

So tell me guys, what's going on in Nigeria/Lagos? It would be so cool if this post could be the one stop place for recent happenings in Naija so I'm saved the stress of going to LIB, NL, BN etc. 

All you can do for me is tell me what's happening in the news, entertainment, in the media or anything around you that caught your interest. 

And while we're at it, share your thoughts on the gestapo-style arrest of the Justices? Are you one of those "This is the change we voted for!" people, or were you alarmed to learn that there's no rule of law in Nigeria?

Let's talk.

  2. Alarmed is an understatement. Granted the Judiciary has been compromised a Long time ago. We have institutionalized corruption in Nigeria and the Judiciary is not exempted.
    I think the way and manner they went about it is wrong and it is sending wrong signals. Though some think that's the only way the fights against corruption would work. The violent taketh it by force approach.
    I just hope that as Buhari is fighting corruption, he doesn't forget the terrible state of the economy. What most people care about right now is how we are going to get out of this recession and not this one sided man-hunt. The sad thing is that these criminals would be paraded and eventually let go because the "rule of law" or "due process" would eventually drag the process till we forget and Justice would not be served. Nigerians forget too quickly and easily.

    In other news, this coming Monday is a very big day. The days after it too would determine a lot. Y'all should say a word of prayer or two for my family.😊

    And yes!!! 70 days is ending on Sunday!!! That's news to you Thelma😜 So yeah! You're welcome! 😘😍

    2. Loool.... I wish.

      Memphis I agree with you but my first reaction to what happened: "People have been predicti threat Buhari would be a dictator and the rule of law won't mean anything to him now this?" Wrong signals. Some people could have capitalized on my ignorance and that of so many other people to start another campaign of calumny. Or even worse.
      Apparently in the The Administration of Criminal Justice Act (2015) allows a person to be arrested notwithstanding that the person arresting him is not in possession of an arrest warrant on demand, but can show the warrant as soon as practicable. Section 44 ACJA. Out of all the highlights oI read, this stuck!
      Some others:
      a law officer has the power to break into and out of any house for the purpose of arresting a suspect who fails to let the arresting officer in.
      6. Section 43 (1) ACJA states: "A warrant of arrest may be executed on any day, including a Sunday or public holiday."
      7. The person arresting may not necessarily be the person to prosecute. A private person may arrest a suspect and hand him over to a prosecuting authority(Section 23 ACJA).

      That's how I mistakenly posted the comment.

    4. The Senate is now considering amending the ACJA 2015 because of what happened. Lol...these people..

  3. I remember a particular Post Thelma said something about the strong desire to strangle an ex that really messed her up. I've also seen comments from the likes of madam Obi Ezekwesili acknowledging the "Rule of Law" but saying one should have the morality to first, foremost, and vehemently condemn a suspect when you're at the receiving end of the atrocity (her comments on those sympathizing with Dasuki).

    I'm not vast on the process of the law and I'm not ready to debate the actions of the DSS, especially when we have divergent views from Lawyers and professors of Law on this matter. But what baffles me is how people forget so easily that corrupt judges are more or less terrorists in the society. How people aren't more focused on dealing with the corruption in the judiciary that has destroyed innocent lives and wrecked flourishing homes. How their judgments have caused confusions and discord in the society and dragged us centuries backwards. This is what surprises me.

    You hear DSS raids judges, probably the 1st time such a thing is happening in a Nigerian Democratic Era, and our VERY FIRST reaction is to protect the interests of these destroyers of innocent lives. Yesterday someone said on Facebook: "if you've never had a case against a rich man in Nigeria, your advocacy for the rule of law as a first reaction is understandable". And I think that was mild.

    Have you had a friend or loved one incarcerated unjustly, or had your property seized or contracts not honored and judges rule against you? If you haven't, ask those who have tasted injustice and tell them about the DSS raid. Their reaction will tell you whether they care about "Rule of Law" or "Gestapo" style.

    By the way, one of the judges had an unlicensed pump action rifle and bullets.

  4. Me, I've always said the Judiciary is the problem of this country. So I'm for 'this is the change we voted for'.

    Finally some judicial scapegoats to work with...

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
Kai!

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!
