Reduce by half, the number of raps you smoke daily, after a week, reduce by half again.... or if you can afford a rehab, got to a rehab.
Above all, seek God's help.

|Politics / Atiku Independence Day Visit: We Have Been Abandoned, Zoo Staff Cry Out To Atiku by Alphafeezay(m): 3:01pm On Oct 05|
Earlier thread on H.E Atiku Abubakar's visit to the Zoo, Abuja here https://www.nairaland.com/6783753/atiku-abubakar-spends-holiday-children
A mild drama ensued at the National Children’s Park and Zoo in Abuja on Saturday, 2nd October, as former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar visited the facility to celebrate Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day in company of some of his children and grandchildren. The Wazirin Adamawa was taking time off his busy political schedule amid the controversial zoning saga playing out in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, when some excited staff of the Park and Zoo approached him in tears to complain about their alleged abandonment by the authorities.
According to one of them, the family-friendly establishment was built by the Obasanjo/Atiku administration but, since they left office, successive administrations have abandoned both the animals and the workers who make huge sacrifices to keep the place running.
Watch how they lament here:
“We rely solely on paltry gate takings to feed the animals. Imagine having to feed two lions and two hyenas with one small cow monthly. What we do is give each one of them eight kilograms of meat every couple of days. They go hungry quite often and this is not good for them,” he said.
His colleague, also visibly agitated, stated that government has left workers at the park to their fate even as they struggle to survive with their families.
“Nobody remembers us. We only remain here because we love the animals. Many of them have died. The surviving crocodiles in the zoo were donated by His Excellency’s (Atiku) wife. The python is still growing. Visitors usually hope to see larger animals and so they are disappointed when they only see toddlers. This is why they don’t troop in enough and buy tickets. The tourism value of this place has dwindled,” he concluded.
They both expressed desire to see the former VP return to the Presidential Villa in 2023 in order to revive the zoo to its glory days.
“It was his government that built this place and it was beautiful then. The animals were taken care of and staff welfare was paramount. We really enjoyed working here back then. I was here when it was being constructed and I have worked in this facility from day one. I feel sad with what is going on now.”
It was at that point that he began to shed tears as his colleagues tried to comfort him.
Responding to the workers, the ex-VP said that he was only out to spend time with his grandchildren as he had missed them a lot but promised that he would advise the necessary government authorities to pay more attention to the park as it is a very important recreational and tourist destination for Nigerians and foreigners as well.
Alh. Abubakar said that, apart from tourism and recreation, the zoo is also a key factor in the education of school children as they will be able to learn about animals and nature in real life, beyond just the pictures in their text books. He therefore called on government to try and improve the welfare of staff working in the park.
What was meant to be a family hangout became a celebration of sorts as fun seekers at the park filled the air with chants of “His Excellency” upon recognizing the 2019 PDP Presidential flag bearer. They took pictures with the Waziri who also danced with the youths and cuddled sleeping babies.
Asked how he would improve the recreational opportunities for Nigerians if he became President, Atiku Abubakar said that he would ensure that poorer states are able to catch up with Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and other big cities that had such facilities already. He declined to answer questions about his political ambition.
“Pardon me, I just want to enjoy the evening with my family.”
