Read her post below:

LADIES: If you don’t start respecting yourself and dignity as a woman. No man will start working hard and structuring your life. It’s not easy to make millions but it’s very achievable if you work hard and also work smart. These men want you to keep asking them for one million, instead of helping you achieve your goals. They know if you start investing in yourself, they can’t make you feel less anymore……. Relationship would come eventually.

It’s better to wait and marry right than marry wrong. So many f**k boys/ men out there.

We have all done things we are not proud of, that shouldn’t define you. Nobody in this world is a saint, na who dem catch na em be thief. It’s not too late to focus and achieve all your heart desires!!!!!!!!! If you are from a poor background, change your story. That should not be an excuse to settle !!!!”

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has expressed that the low cut-off mark in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME for Northern students admission into universities makes them lazy.

“The northerners are at advantage. The low JAMB cut-off mark is making northern youth lazy rather than encouraging them. Despite the advantage of education in Nigeria, we have the highest number of children out of school,” he said.

According to the United Nations, the huge number of out-of-school children in northern Nigeria poses an enormous challenge.

“For example, Joint Admissions Matriculation Board, (JAMB), gives different cut-off marks for different states and you say you are building a nation, no you are dividing it.

“I am from the north but we have suffered educational disadvantage and the JAMB has given us a lower cut-off mark to catch up, have we caught up?

“It is making people lazy,” the governor said.

Family Of Slain Vendor Demands N500m Compensation From Gbajabiamila, Threatens Legal Action

Femi Gbajabiamila

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has been asked to pay N500 million in compensation by the family of Ifeanyi Okereke, the newspaper vendor shot dead last week by a State Security Service (SSS) officer in the convoy of the Speaker.

This was contained in a letter written to Gbajabiamila by their lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN).

The family gave the speaker seven days to fulfill their demand or face legal action.

In the letter dated November 23, Ozekhome, revealed that he has the mandate of the father of the deceased, Okorie Okereke, and his younger brother, Destiny Okereke, to make the demand.

The demand is coming a few days after Gbajabiamila visited the immediate family and pledged to support his children’s education until they become adults.

“Our clients have instructed us to make from your good self, the following modest demands: That you use your good offices to ensure the immediate prosecution of your security aide (Abdullahi Hassan), who went on a frolic of his own, clearly acted outside the purview of his duty and responsibility by shooting to death an innocent, harmless and armless citizen.

“That you adequately compensate the Okereke family with a modest sum of N500m only.

“This monetary demand can never adequately replace or take the place of their son, husband, brother, and breadwinner’s life.

“But it will at least mitigate the obvious trauma and hardship the premature demise of their irreplaceable breadwinner has placed on them.

“Take note therefore that it is our clients’ firm instruction that in the event that you fail, refuse and/or neglect to accede to or proffer reasonable compensatory terms to our above modest demands within seven days from the date of this letter, we shall without any further correspondences from us, take appropriate legal steps to enforce our clients’ constitutional rights,” the letter read.
