Hmmmmmm in this my little stay on this planet , I have come across a lot of people even though I have not been here for so long a time. But truth is I have met different kind of persons.

I have met people who are so proud that they can’t even relate with anyone they feel they are better than. Let alone greeting.

I have also met people who feels that others are jobless just for checking on them or that they are about asking for favor once their calls or chat pops in .

I have met sycophants that are willing to sing one’s praises once they stand to benefit something from you otherwise you become a no body to them.🤣🤣🤣🤣

I have met people who are so annoyingly domineering🤨🤨

I’ve met people who are so insensitive and don’t care if anyone around them is in pain or is even hurting.

I’ve met people who are so popular because they have a popular family name and have lots of relations to back them up.

I have met people who uses their wealth to overpower and intimidate others.

I have also met this kind of people that are so so perfect and have never made a mistake in their entire life (odiegwu)

Hmmmmmm I have met parasitic humans, they live at the expense of their host ..ndi mmadu sef😀

I have met people who have great strength to put discords among friends and brethren…truly they are evil.

Chi m ooo, I have met people who are not willing to share how they started small so you don’t learn and be greater than they are.🤣🤣

Oh dear, did I forget to tell you that I have met people who are so insecure and can’t even trust anyone…(inside life😀)

And yes I have met people who will so use others and finally dump them,(trust you Know I am not talking of sex here) forgetting that there’s tomorrow .

Oh no!!! these are not my favorite kind of people.

My favorite kind of people are those who have the mindset that anytime God blesses them, then it’s definitely for the purpose of being a blessing to others.

They don’t tend to forget their days of little beginning and the people that have also been a blessing in time past.

Those who correct in love with the sole aim of making people better versions of themselves and not to show superiority .

Those who have been through hell and high waters , yet, wakes up every day to put smiles on people’s faces.

Those who had no other support system apart from God and still became successful against all odds.

They are those who have achieved so much yet they are so humble and kind.

These people look beyond “class” and help whosoever they are in the position to help.

My favorite kind of people are those who keeps calm till a meaningful conversation is started … and all of a sudden, they have much more to say than anyone else.

They are so principled and they don’t throw themselves on any one.

This my kind of persons are bundle of ups and downs , scars and bruises yet they are strong and still pushing.

I like people who don’t do things because others are doing …mba !

Those who would tell you the truth to your face no matter how bad it hurts but defend you to the core if someone tries to pick on you.

Those who still find time to trust , irrespective of how many times they have been betrayed.

My favorite kind of people are people who irrespective of the fact that they’re struggling finds a way to assist someone else who is struggling too. Not easy though.

They are those who chose not to be defined by their past and mistakes.

Those who are trying their best to heal from issues that they don’t discuss.

They are those people who no matter how much they fall, will always pick up the bits and pieces of their lives and move on . Hoping for a better tomorrow.

I like those who do things not for recognition or for public notice but just because they care and there’s a great need for it .

People who help others without looking down on them.

I like those who still love ,even when it seems so hard to love again..

Those who became unstoppable, not because they had no failures or doubts, but because they pushed harder despite their fears and backgrounds.

And yes! I love those people who don’t give up on God because all they prayed for has not yet come to pass. Trusting that faithful is He who has promised.

They are my favorite kind of people because:

1) They are not your regular kind of persons. Very rare they are.

2) They are the exact kind of persons that the world and society needs ,even now!

3) These people will soar like eagles and beat the turbulence of life.

Phew ! Guess what… I am also my favorite kind of person .

Thanks for reading

Domestic violence is a violence or other abuse in a marriage.
Domestic violence could involve any body but I’m looking at it in a family setting between a man and his wife.

Domestic violence includes

  • Physical, verbal, emotional, economic, religion reproductive and sexual abuse.

Many people are going through a lot in marriages today, some Christan homes inclusive. This has caused a lot of harms in homes, churches and the society at large. So many women have lost their lives in the process,men inclusive but women are mostly at the receiving end. And they endure mostly even to the point of loosing their lives. This they do because of:

  1. The love they have for their spouse
  2. Because of their children
  3. What the society will say about them
  4. Because of their faith and religion.

Please when beating and sexual molestation becomes the case in your home, there’s need for separation.

Now in as much as the Bible frowns at divorce, I don’t think it’ll be reasonable for one to remain in an abusive marriage where his/her life is a stake. The same children you think about will still be maltreated, neglected and will be forced to face horrible situations the moment you are gone. The same society you are thinking of what they will say will still blame you for not speaking out on time. Your making heaven is even very slim because I don’t think your heart is clean in that condition. Your bad thoughts, unforgiveness and bitterness is enough to send you to hell. And instead of you to commit murder, I think you should separate if that’s the only option left.

Many women are going through alot. When a domestic violence involves life threatening abuses, there’s need for you to seek for help.

Many women have died in this process. Pls being born again doesn’t mean your brain should be suspended. Yes divorce is a sin but you shouldn’t die either because you are married. You are being asked to keep praying often times, yes but you could do that also while away. Many women are dying silently. Women please speak out in such conditions, don’t keep quiet. Make sure the problem is not from you. Make sure you are not the cause of it.

I have seen a woman beating blue black by her husband. Not once not twice. Infact the man always use cane,belt etc on her. And she’s asked to keep praying. What if she die one day? What if she couldn’t take it any longer and tries to defend herself and kill her partner in the process, what will be her lot?

Women should take the necessary steps the moment they see that things are getting out of hand.

Try to see how you could save the situation by involving your spiritual leaders, your both families,the people your partner respects so much and if there’s no changes please take a break while you pray and take the necessary steps to save your marriage.

Pls note that your being away is for the mean time. Even while away you are to remain and keep your body. It’s not a time to go about messing up. If you do that you are commenting sin. You are to maintain sexual purity. Even when your partner is doing otherwise. The only time remarriage is possible is when one partner is dead. See Romans 7:2,1cor.7:39.

Neighbors should as well look out for their fellow women/men. Please speak out for them. Some of them are in a tight corner and can’t help themselves.

Stay tuned for the next post on this same topic!

A group, the Federal Social Democrats, says the credibility and integrity of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have been diminished by the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20.

According to the group, the Lekki incident has eroded the admiration that Sanwo-Olu won with his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group, in statement on Sunday signed on its behalf by Olutola Mobolurin, also condemned the harassment of #EndSARS protest leaders through the freezing of their bank accounts and stopping them from travelling outside the country.

The FSD’s statement was titled, ‘Statement by the Federal Social Democrats On the #EndSARS Movement and Violence in the Wake of Lekki Shootings.’

The group said, “Governor Sanwo-Olu, who before now has been credited with responsible and energetic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has by this one act lost his credibility and integrity for many. He has a big task in regaining the confidence of the public and youths; his credibility gap surrounding what happened at the Lekki Toll Plaza is not helped by the insensitive bluster of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the governor’s residence stating that those who were injured and presumably those who died had questions to answer.”

Though the group condemned the destruction of public assets and looting that trailed the shootings at the Lekki tollgate, it said the mayhem pointed to the alienation of a large number of youths from society by government.

It said, “The so-called hoodlums are the youths that have been denied any stake in society by the self-dealing and state capture that have characterised governance over the last 30 years. Millions of our youths have been uneducated, unemployable and with no meaningful social safety net. Even for the millions who are educated and skilled, long-term unemployment has been their experience in the Nigerian prebendal political economy that serves primarily the interests of public office holders and their cronies.

“Some of the ‘hoodlums’ responsible for the trashing of Lagos are the youths and ‘the toughies’ that many politicians have over the years employed to subvert the democratic process through intimidation of voters and perpetration of violence during elections.”

The group said the organisers of the #EndSARS protests deserved commendation for the resourcefulness, transparency and accountability which they demonstrated.

The group condemned “the growing reports of compilation of names of the assumed leaders and facilitators of the protests for government reprisals.”

It said, “Those that are being targeted are reportedly being prevented from travelling outside Nigeria while accounts of some have been frozen. This is hardly the hallmark of a democratic government that is interested in dialoguing with the youths or learning positive lessons from the #EndSARS protests. It is also a violation of the spirit of government’s acceptance of the 5 for 5 agenda. The President should stop all these acts of witch-hunt.”

The FSD solicited support for the Lagos State Government to rebuild and replace the vandalised public assets.

• Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala had been expected to be confirmed as leader on Monday

By Richard Partington

The race to find a new leader of the World Trade Organization has been thrown into renewed uncertainty after the cancellation of a key appointment meeting following the US presidential election.

The Geneva-based WTO, which acts as an international arbiter for trading disputes, said it had put off a meeting scheduled for Monday that had been called to appoint Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as its next director general.

Donald Trump’s administration opposed her selection in one of its final acts before the US election, despite the former Nigerian finance minister securing the overwhelming backing of the WTO’s 164 members.

The special meeting of the trade body’s general council had been convened to take a formal decision on the appointment. Officials had been set to put forward Dr Okonjo-Iweala as the candidate most likely to attract a majority, after most countries expressed a preference for her over South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee.

Okonjo-Iweala had moved a step closer to becoming the first woman and the first African to be director of the global trade watchdog after securing backing from the EU, China, Japan and Australia. Liam Fox, the leading Brexiter and former international trade secretary, had run as the UK government’s preferred candidate but failed to win enough support from other countries to reach the last two in the process.

Trade experts said Joe Biden defeating Trump in last week’s election may have led to countries calling for a delay in the WTO leadership race, with the aim of securing the Biden White House’s backing for Okonjo-Iweala after he takes charge in January.

The delay in selecting a new WTO director general comes at a fragile moment for the world economy amid the second wave of Covid-19, and after years of criticism of the WTO and calls for reform from Trump.

The WTO said the meeting would be postponed until further notice, during which time the organisation would continue undertaking consultations with delegations from countries around the world to pick a new leader.

It said in a statement: “For reasons including the health situation and current events, delegations will not be in a position to take a formal decision on 9 November.”
