Yet many prominent Igbos are married to Yoruba ladies including the likes of Chief Emeka Anyaoku, late Professor Ike and many more.

|Politics / Re: Supporters Excited As Oyetola Returns To Osun After Tribunal Judgement (Video) by delpee(f): 12:54pm On Jan 28|
Governor Oyetola also lived in Lagos before his election.
FG developed the former Federal Territory comprising of VI, Ikoyi, Apapa Wharf and parts of Surulere/Yaba axis on the mainland. Every other part of Lagos starting from the Fadeyi area belonged to and was developed by the former Western Nigeria government led by late Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

Hmmm! 700 polling units appears significant though. Shouldn't there be consideration for a rerun in those polling units?

Thanks for this. Most enlightening.

Yes. The demolished property belonged to Late John Randle and he had a swimming pool there.

Story! That's for those who didn't reside in Lagos before 1999. The most annoying thing is that we had water flowing from taps at home and public taps on the streets before then. All the mini waterworks built by Jakande seem to be non functional now. It's either boreholes or mairuwa all the way.
Ikeja, Ilupeju etc and all the industrial estates were built in the era of Awolowo. The former Western Region started from Fadeyi on Ikorodu Road. The seat of government was on the Island extending only to Yaba and Surulere. Lagos had decent places to live in not slums.
Lekki exists today because Jakande built the road to Epe which was hitherto only accessible through Ikorodu/Ijebu axis. Most of the major institutions and agencies were built by LKJ apart from his truly low cost housing and masses oriented transportation system.

You need to work on your mind. Your current state is based on what what you have thought is right over the years and adjusted to. You can reprogram your mind if you so wish.
|Family / Re: After Being Single For Soo Long, Im Now Scared Of Getting Married. Please Help!! by delpee(f): 12:24am On Jan 24|
You're absolutely right! Our deep thoughts tend to manifest in our lives. That's why the Bible says we should think about good things (positive thoughts) always.
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Men Abandoned By Their Wives and Children At The Old Age? by delpee(f): 12:18am On Jan 24|
Good write up based on experience it seems!
Mostly true but it's not a lost battle. Both men and women need a new orientation. The ways of the past won't work with today's generation who tend to overreact to every situation.
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Men Abandoned By Their Wives and Children At The Old Age? by delpee(f): 11:49pm On Jan 23|
Men need to spend more time with their kids. It creates a bond that no mother can break. I was close to my dad till he died. Nothing could have changed that even as he wasn't a perfect human being. No one is. Despite his busy schedule, he always created time to relate with us at home and during outings. He had personal files for each of us to monitor our progress and proffer advice or discuss problems as they arise. He paid the bills mostly through our mother who never denied same. Of course, our mum supported him as much as she could. He also never pretended that he was the sole financier.
However, men who honor side chicks while allowing their wives and children to suffer should plan for and expect anything. You can't have the love and respect of your family when you're paying the bills of mistresses and denying your family love and care. It's too emotionally, financially and physically tasking for a woman living under that condition. Of course the children see things oftentimes without being told.
Mothers should let their children show gratitude and respect their fathers. It's actually a spiritually rewarding thing for them. Hiding the fact that a father pays the bills (if he does) is grossly unfair. He loses the respect of the children while sacrificing so much for them. Mothers should separate issues between them and their husbands from the relationship between him and his children. They are two different things. It's never wise to use the children to fight battles between couples. It's probably one of the reasons why we have so many dysfunctional children these days.
A mother's attitude and actions has a great impact. Don't tell your children stories that will make them hate their father. If you feel terribly disenchanted, it's better to leave than to wait for revenge. It's a waste of valuable time and most unhealthy. Bitterness is a slow poison, avoid it.
Above all, both men and women should save towards their old age. A mix of investments makes it easy to have access to funds at all times. Even when the children are willing to do their bit, circumstances may make things difficult e.g. ill health that requires a lot of funds to manage. Whatever the child can provide should not be the main income source. Over dependence could hamper the child's progress too.
As Yorubas say, a jere omo. On the other hand, a ni woju omo ka to jeun. Amin (We'll reap from our children but we won't have to wait on them to be fed.)
God help us all.

|Politics / Re: OBIdients Arrange Buses For Students Across The Country To Pick Up Their PVCs by delpee(f): 8:16pm On Jan 21|
Great move! I've wondered about how students who registered at home while ASUU will get their PVCs. I pray this works out. The younger generation must make a choice to secure their future. Get involved in politics. We need to move this nation forward. You own the future. Nigeria was a great nation. It's not too late to restore it to those glorious years. Focus on how to build a new restructured and powerful nation in all ways. The labors of our heroes past shall not be in vain.
God bless you all.
|Politics / Re: Chatham House And Nigeria’s Growing Cultural Cringe By Farooq Kperogi by delpee(f): 8:02pm On Jan 21|
Years ago, the Nigeria Institute of International Affairs (NIIA) was active and made a huge impact on the political space. That agency, NIPSS and Centre for Democratic Studies would have been better places to host the Presidential aspirants so they can talk to us, the PVC holders.
|Family / Re: Mum Rejects Car Gift From Son, Questions His Source Of Wealth (Pix, Video) by delpee(f): 7:39pm On Jan 21|
My mum is like this. Same with me. Those are the values we grew up with. The essence of being an omoluabi. Great pity that many have lost our sense of good values. Ise logun ise... Iwalewa
|Family / Re: Mum Rejects Car Gift From Son, Questions His Source Of Wealth (Pix, Video) by delpee(f): 7:29pm On Jan 21|
This is an old school mum. You're not allowed to bring home what is not legitimately earned. That's the true Nigerian culture. The fact that there's so much laxity and greed now doesn't mean some people don't still have our old value system at heart.
Even if it's legitimate income, what the woman needs for now is probably not a car. Expanding her business or making her life more comfortable would have been more appropriate.

Thanks for this clarification. I was beginning to wonder how this was allowed to happen in a place that is not so remote. They need to check themselves. Perhaps some spiritual cleansing too so that whatever the government or philanthropists decide to do there will truly make a difference.

Wrong narrative. Some of us remember all that transpired. SE people left on their own accord as Abacha descended heavily on the SW.
Chukwumerije, then Information Minister made announcements spelling doom for NADECO and the SW in general. We saw hell but we thank God that the battle for democracy was won. We appreciate people like late Ndubuisi Kanu who stood by NADECO against all odds.

You obviously know very little about Ibadan. Ring road for someone going to Secretariat? Haba!
The Federal Secretariat is within Agodi GRA and close to Bodija, Idi Ape/Bashorun, Gate. Try to get somewhere to stay within that area for your convenience. UI isn't so far too as someone suggested.

Interesting story. Perhaps a good storyline for Nollywood. It will be a great movie with lessons to learn.
It seems that God judged the dubious Judge ( if the story is true) in a wonderful way.
If every agency of government dealing with crime worked diligently like NDLEA and our courts are fair in their processes, we'll have less criminals in our midst.

|Family / Re: I Am Depressed by delpee(f): 4:14pm On Jan 14|
Abandoning her is not a wise decision at this point in time. The phone chat shows deep frustration on her part.
A woman doesn't need to find another man before realising that she must maintain her sanity and stay safe. Don't think along that line of her having a new man for now.
A man who is verbally abusive can drive one nuts and could become violent. It seems she found her father's house to be a place where she's happy and peaceful. Only for you to offload your usual rants and provide for her an escape route. The fact that her father and brother support her speaks volumes. She'll probably calm down after a while provided you're willing to sort out your anger issues. Seek help ASAP.

This type of scenario is becoming a regular feature in our banks. What is baffling is that the recipient is always known. I don't understand why it's difficult to recover the funds from them and try them for fraud.

It's a pleasure. Try to link up with event planners so you can have opportunities to supply food/snacks etc at events. You'll grow with good referrals.
I pray you experience divine favor and amazing grace to propel you to greater heights in 2023.
I'm female by the way.
