The photos are okay but to better advertise this, the poster should take a field trip and take his own point of view pics. I personally would really appreciate and love that.

1. i don't understand why you are mad at my comment
2. you didn't do your part because it seemed like you copied and pasted someone elses write up
3. i have no idea where this place is
4. i have never been to that state
5. if i knew where that was, i would gladly go there and take pictures and post it here
6. Never assume that just because someone responds to your post automatically means they know where or what you are talking about and since you are the original poster, can we come to you for more info without you being mad?

All i said was i wish you took your own photos to show us how nice it was since you posted the story. I admit i assumed that you were in the area and you were trying to get your area on the map. Anyway no hard feelings from me i hope you have none either

None from me too. I am also not mad, was just irritated. Anyway on a more serious note, I am a long distance away from Uyo and won't be near that region in a long time. Yes u are right, some live pix would really be nice to see. Also some comments from people that have been there about what to expect would be wonderful. Am throwing the ball out to all Nlers. If anyone could provide us with live pix of the beach, it would be deeply appreciated.

I really don't know if this is the appropriate section to post this, however, to whom it may concern.

A female personal assistant is urgently needed for immediate employment in Lagos.

Applicants should possess OND or HND in Social Sciences or its equivalents and MUST not be older than 25 years. Previous or present experience in FMCG is an added advantage. Ability to work in a multi-cultural international environment will also help immensely.

All applications, credentials and scanned passport photographs must reach to ikemefuna.chidi@gmail.com on or before 05.11.2014
