How To Overcome Ember Months Successfully (a Must Read For Everybody) by Opeomoope: 1:12pm On Sep 01, 2016
First and foremost , the ember months as we know starts from the month of September to December and known to be festive period . This period is high in activities such as Marriage Ceremonies , Weddings , Birthday parties , freedom parties , even burials , remembrances , xmas celebration , etc . It ' s also a period of high market rush for traders and business men and women . However , this period of the year is also characterised with high different social violence like armed robbery , kidnap , car high - jacking , ritual killings , rape , oppression and suppression , drunkenness , accidents ( home , road , water , air , fire ) , reckless driving , false accusations and allegations , etc . While it is true that the police and other security agencies continue to deploy measures to combat crime and protect lives and properties of citizens , there are several things we can do to reduce our exposure to these unwholesome activities especially during this festive period . THESE POINTS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED : v Do not talk about cash transactions you have already done or about to do in public places and mind who knows about it . v Carrying out a proper journey management plan and having a good knowledge of the area you plan to visit before embarking on any trip significantly reduces your risk . v Before embarking on your trip , avoid talking about it in the public places and mind who is aware of it too . v Ensure that vehicles are in good working condition and all particulars are valid – this includes driver ’ s license and vehicle particulars . v Leave a copy of your travel itinerary with a trusted family member or friend . v Avoid giving rides to / accepting rides from strangers – criminals have been known to use such situations to target unsuspecting people . v Ensure that luggage and valuables are placed well out of sight . v Do not mention how long you will be away from your home in public places especially if you will be off for long . v Avoid night travels as much as possible – ensure all journeys are completed during the day or make advance arrangement for sleepovers . v Avoid making unplanned stops e . g . bathroom breaks , especially at lonely areas / isolated routes . Populated areas are generally safer for such stops . v Exercise restraints and be patient with government security agents during security checks to avoid unnecessary delays – be polite and courteous in your responses . v Drive defensively and maintain high alertness throughout the journey . v If you suspect you are being monitored or trailed , drive to the nearest police station or public place and seek emergency assistance . v Avoid phone calls as much as possible when driving and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE . Finally , evaluated the need for any action against potential risks before commencing it . Remember that you are responsible for your personal security and that of your family . Enjoy the season !!!
