Interior Epoxy 3D Floor/Wall/Ceiling Exotic Epoxy 3D Floors are aesthetically fascinating,durable, and much more stronger than tiles and
Exotic Exterior Concrete Stamp Floor.
Unlike interlocks that soon allow grass and bushes to grow through, also often dents/disfigures when heavy vehicles are driven on them after heavy rainfall. Our extetior Concrete Stamped Floor is relaible, durable, strong and beautifully facsinating. We do it for just 6K per SqrMeter (Cost of all materials required already inclusive)

Please, why must every issue brought up on NL be tribalised? The issue is between Innoson's boss, GT bank and EFCC. How then is it relating to Igbos and Yorubas. Its heartbreaking seeing that while some patriotic citizens work hard to ensure this nation's peace, unity and development, many others are causing disintegrations and tribal conflict. Lets change our attitudes and ideologies for the sake of God and for the peace and development of our nation Nigeria.

During the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, many Igbo people fled other parts of the country for the East because they were being killed and massacred wantonly and the government was doing nothing about it.
Many abandoned their homes, properties and businesses for safety. Of them, was a young Igbo architect who had a young Yoruba banker as a neighbour in Apapa, Lagos. He also abandoned his home and with his family fled for the East.
However, the young Yoruba banker, while the war lasted, rented out his neighbour's house and kept every kobo for him while he was in the East. After the war, the Igbo architect returned to Lagos and the Yoruba banker handed over the entire proceeds of the rent and also the house to the Igbo architect.
Some few years later, the Igbo architect became the Vice President of Nigeria and the Yoruba banker established a commercial bank, the first by a private citizen in the country's history.
However, he could not get a license to begin banking operations. Many people were against him because it was unheard of at the time.
At this time, the banker remembered his neighbour who was now the Vice President and tracked him to the Christ Church Cathedral, Marina, Lagos on a particular Sunday. He had tried to get appointment to see him in his office but without success.
He and his wife then decided to go lay ambush for him in Church but the security men did not allow them. They then decided to sit by the pew close to the aisle to beat the security in the hope that the Vice President would see them while he walked to the front row. Yet, he still didn't see them.
After the church program they positioned that he will see them on his way out. However, the people following him out and security blocked his view. That was when the banker's wife decided to take a risk and like the woman with the issue of blood, she pulled the Vice President's cloth to get his attention who then turned and saw his old friend.
The young banker then narrated his plight and told the Vice President how he had tried to see him and what he needed to see him for. He told the him about his application for a bank licence.
“Don’t worry yourself. Just come tomorrow at the Federal Executive Council meeting which I would preside because President Shehu Shagari would not be there,'' the Vice President assured him.
By 3.00pm the next day, the Finance Minister called the banker on phone that his licence was ready. The rest they say is history.
That young banker was Otunba Michael Olasubomi Balogun while the architect in this narrative was one of Africa’s elder statesmen and former Vice President of the Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Alex Ekwueme. The bank is what is now First City Monument Bank.
One good turn truly deserves another and it is good to love our neighbours as ourselves.
Have a historical week ahead. #HistoryVille #heritagery #niyi.aderibigbe
