NAFDAC Shuts Down Chocolat Royal, Cool, Wazobia FM Chairman On The Run

National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) Tuesday night, sealed completely the business outlet of a popular elite and confectionary company, Chocolat Royal has emerged, The City Reporters can exclusively report.

Apart from the importation, storage and use of fake, unregistered and expired/unwholesome food products to produce consumables for customers, we can authoritatively report that Chocolat Royal was sealed by NAFDAC on discovery of six illegal 40ft cold rooms fully stocked with contaminated food products built on top of sewages (suck away pit) and in front of toilets.

Not only that majority of these food products discovered, have expired since 2004, (11- years ago) and the least 2013, the most worrisome aspect of it all was the discovery to the consternation of NAFDAC officials that the management of Chocolat Royal had revalidated the expiring dates of almost all the food products, while 90 % of them were not even written in English language and therefore not registered.

XENOPHOBIA





James ran as he heard the screaming crowd coming for him, right into the dirty bush he ran, previous days he would watch his steps to avoid stepping into human and animal feces today there was no such luxury.
The sharp cuts as the Tree branches cut him, yet he felt no pain, Fear pulsated through his blood stream propelling his legs to move at an alarming speed. The wind whispered as he felt it’s touch, he felt the hot air wafting through his nose. Their chants roared in his ears, their aggressive voices rising in unison , his senses unconsciously calculating their distance they were closing in on him and fast.

Four hours ago as he stepped out of his flat he shared with his two friends from his home country he had no idea he would be fleeing for his dear life, Five years ago he had come to this country equipped with nothing but his back pack filled with scanty clothing. His family had sold two goats , pulling resources together to buy his ticket, this was the Land of Opportunity , A land overflowing with Gold and precious stones, ‘The White man refused to leave “ his friends would taunt “the lull of the precious jewels entrapping them, latching unto their souls and binding them to this land for generations to come, “it’s our land , it’s mother Africa’s gift to us “ his grandmother said “go and get yours “. So he came, sleeping in the cold and toiling on the roads, he stayed. Offering his services to all white and black he toiled, with hard work as his teacher and determination as his motivation   he rose , from street cleaner to Laundry man , from Laundry man to shop worker, from shop worker to Laborer , from laborer to mine workman he settled. Never forgetting his family, always sending half of his monthly wages home, he had found his own share of Mama Africa’s blessing, it was not much but it would do.


Frustrated Bank Staff pens mail to Top Management On How Bad They Treat Junior Staff




Some Contract Staff in Financial institutions and other organizations in this country are not treated with the respect they deserve.

someone posted this mail sent by a UBA staff to the management, crying out for equal or at least better treatment.

The piece is a sad one but with the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria there are thousands that will jump at this jobs flaws and all rather than remain jobless.

The mail below his grammatical errors and all.

Throwback Picture of our Nigerian women in the 20"s



Ever wondered how our great grandmothers styled their hair in the late 20"s well worry no more.

They used a mix of red clay and heavy coconut oil to whip their natural hair into place, they eventually removed the clay leaving the hair in shapes.

Thank God for modern day hair products because honestly Lice would have had a field day back then.

see this pic from 1922 below.

Drama as Leaked Recorded Conversation Exposes John Fashanu


Some shocking confessions are as follows:

FRIEND:.....I also read that she is a lesbian and am like no! no!, who wrote that no, but Uncle Fash you shouldn't have, I mean your old, I mean you are matured man, you shouldn't write, I mean! no! No!

FASH: Everybody wants to be in the media, and I will write rubbish, you wanna fight Ok, that's fine...I will fight.

FRIEND: But atleast everyone knows Abigail is not a lesbian, Fash, can you just counter all those things, please I beg you in God's name.

FASH: .....yeah ask her to counter her things first, that's the thing you should be doing, please.

FRIEND: I also heard she was married three times, I said no!
FASH: That was a misquote

FRIEND: I think its maybe a misquote and that she is 53years old. WOW! I said, she should be 49 or so.
FASH: 53? No! that is a horrible thing because the papers are on my side, they are my people, they add 3 digits ...they will always say more because they are my people, because some of the boys I give them N100,000 every month to protect my interest.....


CONFLICTING CONFESSIONS:

An earlier interview by Fashanu on Sun Newspaper reveals that he was attacked by his ex-wife which he later confessed in the same publication that it was a verbal attack. He also pointed at an interview with Ecomium that his ex- wife's 15years old son attacked him, indeed a far cry from what he said earlier. In truth, There are several other contradictions that really call for questioning...A cursory review of all John Fashanu who said he paid his boys to dance to his gallery shows that a lot of facts were masked or better put hidden from his media outburst.


Ecomium Excerpt below...

All the things he told you are lies.
No media house that wants to survive should listen to John Fashanu.He’s a chronic liar. He’s a drowning man who is looking for another person to drown with. Is it a man that should be ranting or a woman? He’s the one that is hurt that I kicked him out. Who does not know him?
I was ashamed that I lived with such a man. I didn’t know what to say. People will say were you not told? Is it a secret that he’s like that? I’m not such a loud person. That’s why I quietly closed the chapter.
I kicked him out so many times


I’ve kicked him out so many times.
He kept doing a lot of things. It was about fraud initially. He was continually defrauding people. That he had a wife that is a lawyer.
He defrauded many footballers, we saw him on TV. N2 million from them, from poor families.He threatened them with guns. And they’d be crying.I kept kicking him out of my house. It was few months after, about a year., That I first kicked him out.

He came to Abuja with only his bags
he came to Abuja without anything.
I took him in. He didn’t buy any car for me.
I kicked him out two years ago. He moved into his house, four blocks of flats.He completed the house while living there. He used their money to build that house, the money of those footballers he defrauded.

He was stalking me, scribbling things on my car
He was drawing things on my car. He was caught when he came at night.He was stalking me. He would come in the morning, and draw my attention to the damage.And tell me that I needed his protection. That I couldn’t live alone.Such a thing has never happened in our estate.He was caught and he apologized. Two years ago.I forgave him.

Why l was never Mrs Fashanu
My name is actually Abigail Igwe. He reported me to some people..
He stole my passport, that I should change my name to Fashanu. That was when l wanted to renew my passport in July 2014.He was angry.Within me, the marriage had ended. That was why l was reluctant.

We actually got married
We were at the registry in 2011. We have our certificate. I didn’t change my name. I didn’t find it necessary to change.
We started first of all as business partners. He needed me to find his feet in Abuja.
Later on, he said he never saw a woman like me before. That I was calm, unlike other women.That he wanted to marry me. He talked to my pastor friends, that he’s in love with me.We met in 2008. My daughter was still MBGN.He made me believe that he couldn’t do without me. He was pretending that he liked the way I pray. That I should lead him to Christ.

He said he psychologically killed his brother, Justin[/b]
That he was bad to the extent that he psychologically killed his brother.
That the brother was mean to him. The brother didn’t allow him to shine. That people thought he was Justin. That he needed his brother out of the way. He back bit his brother.
He then told me that during Justin’s burial he stood behind after. They thought he was mourning. But he was laughing, that he felt happier that his brother committed suicide.That, at last, he can have his way, now shine.That attack is the best form of defence. I told him that the world is not a football pitch.
I take it that l never married him

[b]I take it like I never married.

It’s a lie. I’ve never been married twice before him. You should have asked him what’s the name of my second husband.That guy is a manipulator. I’m not a mean person. He presented many characters.
When I kick him out, he calls everybody and beg and harass. He would now come and say it’s the way he was brought up.
He’s chameleon. Everybody knows John Fashanu is a chameleon. I made up my mind, and kicked him out in April 2014. He went to complain to my pastor. He told my pastor that I’d not slept with him for one year. That we should pray.My pastor said this woman can’t sleep with you because of what you’ve done. That if he did all these things to another woman you’d be killed.I never lived with him in his house. He was the one who lived with me.

He didn’t pay the rent of N2.5 million
He didn’t pay the rent of N2.5 million. He was chased out from Lagos, and came with his bag. He lied that all the hotels in Abuja were fully booked. And I laughed.I had a visitor, who told me to allow him. That you should give him your visitor’s room. He started living with me and my children. That was 2009. We had started dating and doing business.

He plotted to marry me
Before I got married, he was targeting marriage. He didn’t have money, he pretended very well.He told me to assist him. That he’s changing. He was professing so much love.
I never wanted to marry him until he started pressurizing.
I told him that the relationship was affecting my Christianity. That we should end the relationship. That was when he started going around my pastors. I gave in to his pressure.

I was the one paying the rent
I was the one paying the rent. I gave him food, money and shelter. He didn’t have any money.From the business, we made money and we paid the rent.He doesn’t know where I live now.

I have always worked
Is that not funny, that I never worked? How do I take care of my children? They are in school in UK and America. He never added a kobo to their fees or upkeep. He doesn’t take care of his children, not to talk of mine. You already know he’s lying.I don’t work, but I’ve helped him find his feet. How else would I assist any person?

I got him a N25 million contract[/b]
Two years ago, after I noticed how he defrauded footballers, I felt bad. I called him. He’s very violent, and was shouting.I went to a place, and sought for a job. I wanted money to take the boys abroad. To organise a talent hunt to send the people abroad.
I went to the office of Millennium Development Goals, they gave us a job for N25 million. I used his papers, and they gave us the job in Abuja. I was given N25m to do the job. In the contract, I included that we would send 20 boys to football clubs in Europe.
And buy a car to run around. When the money came (into his account), he didn’t want to do anything.
I pressurized, and he bought the car. That’s the car he’s claiming he bought for me. We used the car to run around.
This man did not send anyone abroad. Even the boys he defrauded, he didn’t. The talent hunt was to help the boys.I felt bad.

[b]He cheated me out of a property

There’s a land he wanted to build an academy. He tried, and he didn’t succeed. Eventually, he included my name in the document, and we finally got the land.We applied for 10, we were given 7 acres.To my amazement, he changed the document to another company’s. My name was not in the new papers.All these toiling came to naught.This happened two years ago. I couldn’t talk. He’s very aggressive. His reply was attack.

I am not a lesbian, he never caught me with anybody
This is ridiculous. He didn’t catch me with anybody. Because he’s going to court, he’s looking for anything.
I had prepared for divorce last year. The lawyer had prepared everything.
I got log of my calls from MTN. He was the one that called me from Colombia.
I caught him with two women. One was our maid.
I caught them in my house. I travelled and came back. He didn’t know.He swore not to give me divorce. That he would frustrate me.
He’s a serial househelp sex abuser. He slept with his maid in London. He told me that his girlfriend in Lagos accused him of sleeping with the maid.He was the one that said so.

I caught him with my maid in bed
The first one was in my house red-handed. I was travelling, and he said he wanted to live in my house. That he would miss me.
I came back, accompanied by my friend. She was driving. I was looking for evidence. I told her that I was getting ready for divorce.When we came in and opened the door, I caught them Unclad. The house girl is Igbo, and she ran. I called her came back. I spoke in Igbo. I told her that this man is poo. I cannot go back to him, that she should not worry. When the girl asked if I had forgiven her, I said yes. I said she should go back.

She said the cook had warned her to stop sleeping with John.

How can a man say his wife stole N1 million? He should be ashamed. He used to steal my money. I never asked him.
I told my friend to pick the maid’s trousers and slippers…They were all ashamed. My friend picked the items and ran.
John chased my friend – and in the process, bashed my car. My friend kept running. I needed the evidence to go to court.
He later called my pastor. That he should calm me down. My pastor said I should forget about him. That I should leave him. That the trouble was too much.
He told my pastor that I should not go to court now. That I should allow the separation first. He went to pastor to ask him to beg that I should come back. My pastor can testify.

I am not violent
There was no violence. I’m not a violent person. Everybody knows I’m tolerant and peaceful. If I were violent, John Fashanu couldn’t marry me.
On one occasion, about police inviting me. I kicked him out of my house.
I told him that before I come back from church, I should not meet him. He stole some things. So, I went with my son to his uncompleted house. He took my jewels. My son told him to bring those things. He tried to fight my 15 year-old son. He brought a sword, and it cut his fingers. My son ran away.The sword cut his hand. I left. I said I was going to the police. But I went home, instead of going to police.He now ran to police. And told them that my son injured him.

I moved to a new house because he was stalking me
I moved because he was stalking me. He would come around, and park and come as soon as he saw me.He would come and peep through my window.
I decided to move. So that he could get used to not seeing me.
I sent him a text on December 9. I wanted my peace. That was why I relinquished the land and all…He sent a picture of himself in his kitchen. That he had renovated the whole house. That I could now come back That he wanted me back ( in January 2015).He lives in one flat. It is four blocks of flats…


He’s ranting like a woman
He’s talking like a woman, and I’m only refuting his allegations. I don’t want to expose him.I’ve not told you anything yet, until I get to court.When I get to court I will unveil more.

I’m not contesting the divorce
It’s a good thing that he has gone to court. He should even go and finish the case by himself, and bring the certificate.
I’m not contesting anything. He should have informed me about the divorce if he’s a sane man.What he’s doing is what women do.
Let them finish the divorce, I can only be in court when I’m called. Without that, I don’t need to be in court.
After all, we don’t have children together.

If this allegations are true, then John Fashanu must be one sick twisted man.

A TEACHERS OBSESSION

 A naughty poem i wrote ten years ago.


©


I loosen my tie as if to unwind
I feel the sweat, dripping making me wet
I pace to and fro so as not to show
This undeniable physical reaction to nature's call.
I'm thrown back like Adam before the fall
Lost in a trance to Eve's blinding Lull.

The secrets to staying creative in your workplace



This Article culled from CNN caught my eye this morning, let's stay creative this Monday morning.


Here  are some of the tips they suggest for unleashing your creative potential -- both at home and at work.

Expand your horizons... literally
Spaciousness helps broaden thoughts. Even high ceilings have been shown to broaden attention. Small, windowless offices, low ceilings and narrow corridors will do little to inspire our brains and make us flexible, creative thinkers.
Color is key
Relaxing outdoor colors such as blue and green contribute to this state. "Emergency" colors such as red suppress it. Surprisingly, dark colors and dim lighting can also be beneficial: by obscuring visual details, they help people think more abstractly.
Get moving
Static surroundings encourage static thinking. Don't be predictable. You should sometimes change everyday routines, such as where you go for coffee or your route to work. Rearrange your furniture and decor from time to time, at home and in your workplace. Hold meetings in a variety of places.

History Bits........The Black Death


So if i read this piece very well, the black death that killed about 100,000,000 people was caused by superstition leading to the killing of cats which led to the infestation of rats, who carried fleas and infested humans because they were dirty, and finally they were no anti biotics to cure an infected person.

I love my cat that's all i will add.


Black Death

NYTIMES RIPS INTO MARIAH CAREY AS THEY REVIEW HER VEGAS SHOW


Now Mariah fans have been all sorts of excited for Mariah Carey's Vegas shows, she is literally a living legend and has one one of the best voices in the industry.

but this review below is really hard to even complete, they ripped her Vegas shows to threads , extracts of the review includes lines like "You watch the crash because you want to see how it will end: near miss or carnage, relief or horror, laughter or tears."  They accuse her of lip synching and being on the decline.

This fan video footage of the concert might change your mind about the review but it's still hard to even imagine Mariah and her team reading this....harsh much.

THE BEAUTY OF A MASKED BALL


So i wrote this piece about 5 or more years ago when the Niger delta militancy was at its height, i found it somewhere in my archive and decided to share it.

What has changed? let's see Militants have stopped blowing up our oil fields, The US Economy is experiencing a consistent boom ,Oil prices are at a ridiculous low price, FDI has reduced, and the kidnappings are almost non existent.

what has not changed ? Our country is still painted by the media as Vile, dangerous, corrupt and a high risk country,we are yet to do anything to halt the fall of the naira against the dollar, we have not diversified our income resources and yes Nigerians are still wearing masks ....OK
