5 Things About Femi Adesina's Juvenile Reaction To MrPresident's "Surprise" Phone Call.






If this account shared by Femi Adesina on Saturday the 25th of February is not juvenile, then I don't know what is. 

In case you haven't read it, he said: At exactly 2.43 p.m today, Saturday, February 25, 2017, my phone rang. Who was at the other end? Tunde Sabiu, personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari.
"Hold on for Mr President," Tunde said.
And in a matter of seconds, the very familiar voice came:
"Femi, how are you?" (He calls me Adesina most times, but today, he opted for Femi)
I screamed :"Mr President, I have missed you. How are you sir?"
He first laughed. That familiar laugh. Then he said: "I am still resting. Thank you for holding out against mischief makers."
I said it was my duty, the very least I could do, adding how happy I was to speak with him.
"How is your family?"
I said we were fine, and he asked me to extend his greetings to them.
"I hope to call you again, " Mr President said, and I bade him farewell, adding: "Best wishes, sir."
It was a defining moment for me. For more than a month, I had always spoken with aides who are with the President in London. Not once did I ask them to take the phone to him, deliberately so, because I didn't need to speak with him to validate the fact that he was alive. And since he was on vacation, he had a right to his privacy.
Of his own volition, President Buhari spoke with me. It made my day. Even if he hadn't done so, he would have remained my President, my leader, and my man. Any day.


These are my thoughts. 
* In the words of Abraham Lincoln; "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time. But you cannot fool all of the people all of the time". I personally feel insulted by this write up which proves absolutely nothing. The President may be alive, hale and hearty, but this does nothing to prove that, if that was Mr Adesina's goal. Is he suggesting that simply because he TOLD us that the President called he and he SCREAMED, all doubts, questions and fears should be suddenly allayed? 

* I fail to see the point behind publicizing this phone call, seeing as Femi in no where wrote that the President asked after the wellbeing of Nigerians and how we are faring in his absence. Instead Femi tells us that the President only asked after his family, and that was after referring to us, his people, as mischief makers. 

* Some people have suggested, albeit jokingly that the PDP should have governors Nyesom Wike and Fayose also pay the President a visit. We all know that this may never happen, however I'm sure we agree that if truly we are to be convinced that there's nothing to be worried about, persons other than those in the President's camp should also be invited to pay the President a visit and share the august experience with us. That should most certainly shush the "mischief makers", no?

* "screamed :"Mr President, I have missed you. How are you sir?", Was this really necessary? But if we are to look beyond this frivolity and closely at the word SCREAM we'd have numerous questions to ask. Femi is the President's mouth piece, his aide, his "boy" (seeing as he referred to the President as his "man"), yet one phone call evoked enough surprise and excitement to make him SCREAM? Does this not suggest, perhaps, that Mr Femi was also in doubt of the President's health, like other mischief makers Nigerians, and this phone call from the President himself flooded Femi with relief and excitement that PMB is well? Or should we agree Femi Fani Kayode who said about the phone call; "When Femi Adesina finally sees Buhari he will crawl on his belly like a snake on heat and offer words of praise and worship..."?

* Lastly, I fail to understand who exactly are mischief makers. Reports continue to reach us that President Buhari is hale and hearty, some reports say he is simply "resting", others say we should "Pray for him". Some say he is running tests, other reports tell us "there is no cause for alarm". The people are confused. Their President has been on vacation for over a month. Their President is yet to speak to his people through various media available to him. The people naturally become uncertain and apprehensive. In the face of silence and doubt, various conclusions would be drawn... Not everyone who enquires about the whereabouts of a President they elected into office is a mischief maker. 

These are some of my thoughts. Do you care to share yours?

  2. Sigh.

    Aint nobody gat time fo this! Nigerians were getting petty with the whole Buhari matter so Femi Adeshina gave them pettiness back. And thats how the cycle continues everytime in Nigeria. Geez. Lets ignore the unimportant things for once. The man handed over to Osinbajo, why the hell are we still looking for him? Direct all your heartaches to Osinbajo. Simple. What exactly do we even need Buhari for?
    Femi Adeshina oooo. Nigerians ooo. Buhari oooo. All of them are petty.

    Peace.

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?

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!
