Five Times Nigerian First Ladies Really Disgraced Naija.

In recent years, the office of the first lady has not been without some comedy, drama and jaw breaking events / revelation; in this article we look at five (5) times events took a ugly turn. On such occasion however, Nigerians didn't 'carry last' as we were quick to jump on situation and make a good laugh out of them. Afterall; we cannot come and go and kill myself.

Sit-back, relax and enjoy our list starting from the least to the most embarrassing.

No 5:- Aisha Buhari (People are dictating to my husband)
Well, while the statement above is not the actual words of Mrs Aisha Buhari, in an interview with BBC Hausa when asked 'Do you think there are some people that are dictating to the President (Buhari) things to do...' she replied with 'That is what I'm saying' - the issues were further complicated when press men in Germany seized the opportunity to ask the President what his comments are on the interview granted by his wife, the rest like they say is history.
While public opinion varies on if and if not it is a national e
mbarrassment, the fact that things were not handled properly still remains.

No 4:- Stella Obasanjo (Corrupt dealings)

The late first lady known for her colourful and expensive lifestyle, a lifestyle which would later see her die during a tummy tuck and was accused during her time at Aso-Rock to have been involved in corrupt dealings in the contract for the African Games, illegal sale of luxurious government properties amongst others. RIP

No 3:- Patience Jonathan (Weeps on National TV)
While it is not an embarrasement to have public officers cry on national TV, especially when so many innocent life are involved - the drama surrounding this particular one, makes it an issue to consider and it makes our top3. The first lady while drilling principals of the Chibok school were 234 girls had been abducted by Boko Haram fighters repeated said “There is God o… There is God oo,” and weeped. The video would later go viral on you-tube and top video channels.

No 2:- Patience Jonathan (Buhari is Brain-dead)
This particular statement form Mrs Jonathan got everyone talking, even Abike Dabiri-Erewa labelled the then first lady (Patience) as an embarrassment to Nigerians and crowned it with a statement saying 'Mrs Jonathan is the worst First Lady Nigeria has ever had'.
This event occurred while the present president (PMB) was still an APC presidential candidate and flag bearer in an election which saw Patience and her husband leave the seat of power; Aso Rock.

No 1:- Turai Yar'Adua (Takes Over Reigns of Power)
From sneaking her husband, the then President (Yar'Adua) into the country late into the night, to rumored to have over-tuned the decision of the National Assembly to name Jonathan as the Acting President; this particular event has all the ingredients to be named our No 1 most embarrassing moment (from a first lady) in the history of the office of the first lady.

Thanks for reading, remember to review or give us your top 5.

I remember as a young guy growing up on the street of Lagos, if there was one community selling in traffic, it was ‘cold water’ – e ra omi tutu o (buy cold water oh) – was perhaps the only advert I heard, which would soon be swept off the street by the ‘almighty’ pure water.

Then came Gala beef roll, although that name has become a generally accepted name for beef roll rather than ‘gala’ beef itself. While Gala started with selling at bus-stops and road parks, it soon found itself in traffic and that was when the evolution kicked off, one we can say started with Gala and Pure water.

These brings me to my Top 4 Selling Goods in Traffic on Ikorodu Road.

No marriage is immune from storms. At one point or the other, it may not be an easy ride as one would wish.

When Bola’s brother lost his job, she worried about how it would affect his marriage. Would he and his wife cave under the added pressure and turn on one another? Or would they survive the storm with their marriage—and family—intact?

All too often, marriages are collateral damage in other storms of life—a job loss, the loss of a loved one, parenting a problem child, etc. When couples are exposed to the heavy winds of difficult circumstances, all the cracks in the foundation of their relationship are exposed.For many, a crisis is a fast track to divorce.

1.You Don’t Marry One Person;
you marry three: the person you think they are, the person they are, and the person they are going to become as a result of being married to you.
God did not intend marriage to be a cross, a burden, a trap or a prison yard as some have confessed. Marital problems have made many people conclude that marriage cannot work. It is as if God instituted something that is impossible. If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.


Please,if anyone stops you and ask if you're interested in some perfume and gives you a paper to smell, please don't!

It's a new scam, the paper is laced with drugs, you'll pass out so they can rob you or do worse things to you. Please forward to all friends and a soul.

Relationship Stories; S2

The True Meaning of LOVE –
A Touching Story.....

My husband is an Engineer by profession, I love him for his steady nature, and I love the warm feeling when I lean against his broad shoulders. Three years of courtship and now, two years into marriage, I would have to admit, that I am getting tired of it. The reasons of me loving him before, has now transformed into the cause of all my restlessness. . I am a sentimental woman and extremely sensitive when it comes to a relationship and my feelings, I yearn for the romantic moments, like a little girl yearning for candy.

Relationship Stories; S1

“Biyi hasn’t worked for that long?” Dayo’s voice drips with resentment. “For real?” “He’s been trying,” I say in feeble attempt to defend my husband. “You know how the economy is.”
…My husband and I had vowed never to bring in a third party into our relationship but with a bank account
screaming for revival, I need to share my burden with someone else. I grip the phone. Dayo is unusually quiet. “You still there?” I ask. “Hello?” “I am here,” she says. “I just didn’t know things were this bad. And all this while, I thought Biyi was providing for the home.” But he is, I argue silently. Well, maybe not financially for now, but in every way else, Biyi is a rock. “It’s not that bad.” My words sound frail. Dayo clucks her tongue.
“You might as well be a widow.” The words hit me like a fist. “Na you I blame,” she continues, oblivious to the damage her words have caused.
“Me? Why?” She is blaming me for this? Seriously?
“Why do you keep paying the bills?”
“Because there is no one else to do it,” I protest, upset.


I once saw a mad man in the bin,
Looking satisfied, worrying not for what to eat.
He treated himself to delicacies,
Leftovers and junk that littered the bin.

He worried not about clothes,
Shoes or chains of gold.
Not bothered about setting goals
Or storing up cash in treasure troves.

He pays no rent,
The sky is the roof over his head
The cold wind his blanket
Under the bridge, his apartment.

His feet take him where cars can,


Dem don ban okada,
Now bus conductors go dey smile
Dem go carry passengers dey shine,
Even gala sellers don hammer

As dem don ban okada
Make sure say your phone get earphone,
And your shoe no be high heel,
E better make you sabi apian way

Carry small umbrella,
Carry small rag,
No forget to buy brown hanky,
And those palasa yaba glasses.
