But surely this so called _yahoo-boys_ do have negative effects on the economy of our country. My brother you say what? I don't know your definition of negative effects, but I think you should try to see the list of figures of cars bought by the entire country last year. You will see how high the figures are and I think you should agree with me that if you remove the total number of cars bought by government at all levels for it officials, those boys ( _yahoo-boys_ ) bought the bulk of the cars. Only an illiterate wouldn't know the influence that has on the economy.
Permit me to make reference to where I come from (Guusu). The majority of the so called female entrepreneurs are either selling overpriced hairs or clothes (female). How do you think their low earning customers manage to patronize them? if not for their rich ( _yahoo-boys_ ) boyfriends. There is a joke in town about politicians stealing money at home only to waste it abroad. But _yahoo-boys_ steal money abroad and lavish it at home. Also let's ask ourselves all the money recovered so far has it been returned to the original owners. Or is it another national cake for government officials.
I rounded the speech up at the lecture with the saying "Having money is vanity, not having is also vanity, you all are advised to choose your vanity wisely." On coming out from the event the officers of the Anti-curruption agency has already barricaded the whole place. They have a warrant to invite me to their office for reasons best known to themu. Alas they were surprised how they were denied access to me by men in uniform. The anti-curruption officers tried to talk to the men. Even the principle of espirit de corps didn't hold sway as it fell on the their deaf ears. I was conveyed to the airport where I took a return flight back to Crystal Empire.
Mama came visiting not knowing I had gone back. The plan initially was to stay for weeks but I have to change my mind when I got the intelligent information about the anti-corruption agency's invitation . Where is my son she asked. He said he needs to travel back to attend to something urgent Oritsebemigho answered . Ewele!!! mama exclaimed. Now you've gotten to a stage where you now keep my son away from me? The rivalry between the two had been on for a while though. Mama doesn't buy the idea of a woman who her dowry is yet to be paid. Moving in and start living under the same roof with a man. She forbids acting like a wife or husband when you are actually not. She said repeatedly you young men of these days remain broke because you act and perform the responsibilities of a husband long before you begin your family. This women are only interested in money. But she was there when I had nothing was my favorite reply . Mama always say this is the "father Christmas generation" you men act like OK foundation while the girls behave like orphans. What is the parable with OK foundation and orphans ma?. Ogunbanbi Kehinde (OK) Foundation is a NGO that caters for the less privileged.

You’re probably used to people telling you that smokers are liable to die young, but you rarely read a whiff of cigarettes translates to a higher risk of early death compared to people who don’t smoke at all. But while the regulations may have persuaded some folk not to light up a stick of cigar, many still completely go after smoking, drinking alcohol and all sorts of abuse of drugs — in spite of the risk involved in smoking. I am always saddened to hear the stories about the damage alcohol and drugs have done to young people who are just realizing their career. Like other heavy smokers, a young man in his twenties life was completely taken off by drug addiction, when his addiction strikes, it was so devastating to his family. To this day, his parents still feel bad for their sons lifetime been diminished by the toxins in cigarette smoking. On the flip side, one of the biggest fears for the modern human being is a silly and dangerous health precaution against smokers and people with

We all just turn to faith and benedictions to stay very much alive —trying to understand and meditate on thoughts. There are a lot of scary things happening these days; timely news of new catastrophe, cops brutality and incessant uproar. It has been a moment's people battle with depression while seeming harder to stay emotionally intact, kind of vague despair. So sad, it has proven beyond doubt that individuals now live in fear and widespread emotional distress. Yet, the government seems to have lost sight of whom it represents, and quite upsetting just how these pressing issues make many people marvel at downright misleading stuff — navigating criminality and violations for luxury. But first, how do we sustain hope in a life where feelings swing into fractures of disdain, anxiety and severe loss of imaginable resilience? One time I find mys
We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends, and living our lives. — Maya Angelou. I had spent over ‘four months’ at home without school as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) — a public health disaster that’s been devastating to nations while social lifestyle and productivity have fallen as targeted lockdowns in several countries disrupt educational sector as well as depriving congregational religion services. So, essentially there are other plans I had to be modified to fit into the COVID-19 new normal lifestyle. One of the quite major roles as a Nigerian student is that I have just earned is an improvement in literature (reading and writing) monumental moments to feel delighted with relatives and neighbors — moments sharing circumstances and experiences as the deadly virus trapped us in our house. In essence, my daily schedule while the Coronavirus creates us in a new form of being, a few days in L
