Most recents (24)

As part of activities to commemorate our 3 years of operations at Ibom Air, we've gifted large umbrellas to street vendors in Uyo, Abuja, Bayelsa, Enugu & Port Harcourt so far.

Most recently, we hit the streets of Calabar & received a warm welcome from some very happy vendors
Thank you Calabar for having us! 🧡

Next stop #Lagos!

Thank you

Recommended Smartphone Charging Habits
- Avoid charging your phone overnight. When your phone remains at full charge for a prolonged period of time, it can affect your battery's health. Adaptive charging is recommended if you do need to charge your phone overnight, that's if your phone supports it....
If not, charge your phone during the day, or whenever you can unplug your charger when your battery is full.

So Ohaneze Ndigbo leaders visited Gov Sanwoolu, advised all to ignore rumours of IPOB or Unknown Gunmen plotting to attack #Lagos soon

I hope Security Forces & LASG re-strategize on security measures to prevent possible attack while Lagosians are to help with credible intel
What effort have been put in place by Ohaneze Ndigbo to stop the ongoing killings in the South East region? Laughable that same group are the one offering Lagosians sakamaje unsolicited advise. That advisory should be ignored while LASG secure #Lagos from the ‘Unknown Gunmen’.
Recently I visited #Lagos & I saw high level of damage/destruction done during the EndSARS crisis. Intelligence driven measure can foil attempts to cause havoc again, as we hope affliction won’t arise for the second time. Govt & Citizens have key roles to play on security matters

In 2019, I invested in a property that has now appreciated by almost £40,000 (N26M) in just 2 years. Currently, I am in talks with a very good friend of mine about buying another rental property (a flat) worth £175,000 in an area populated by students.
For upwardly mobile professionals, real estate is generally a great investment option. It can help generate passive income on a yearly basis. It can also be a fantastic long-term investment if you buy in a great location and the value increases overtime like mine has done.
Investing in real estate can help you build wealth. You can make profit through rental income (people will always need a place to live) and appreciation of the value of the property.

The agenda of Klaus Schwab's Global Shapers is the acceleration of global corporate control to a level we can barely imagine, the imposition of a full-on techno-tyranny.

We took a closer look at the WEF's Global Shapers in #London and found that one heads a “a private philanthropy focused on systemic change” seeking “integrated solutions that follow children along the life course”.

It intends to “take risks where the potential pay-off is big” and adds: “We know that the returns on smart investments in areas such as children’s early development and adolescent girls are especially high”.

Akwa Ibom Gov @MrUdomEmmanuel, SSG in Multi-Billion Naira Scandal

The House of Assembly approved N2.5bn for the maintenance of the state aircraft but the SSG’s office spent N5.04bn on the maintenance of one aircraft, which is used exclusively by the Gov. bit.ly/3nyaBBk
THE Akwa Ibom State Govt this year released the Account General’s annual report and audited financial statements for 2019. A thorough analysis of the report reveals that the offices of the Gov & SSG made several questionable and extra-budgetary expenses in 2019. cc. @EditiEffiong
These bizarre expenses were incurred on cars, aircraft maintenance, fuel, government special projects and governor’s hospitality exceed N10 billion. bit.ly/3nyaBBk

BREAKING: Tension in #EdoState as supremacy clashes btw rival cult groups have persisted in #BeninCity, the state capital; at least 20 persons have died in the last one week. Cult group opened fire on three Policemen on Friday. #Military have been deployed to the troubled areas.
So many Small Arms & Light Weapons (SALW) in the hands of hoodlums in #Lagos, #Edo & #Rivers States; a serious threat to internal security of the aforementioned states. There’s urgent need for citizens to help security agencies with credible intelligence to recover those weapons.
Insecurity alert level will increase in #Lagos, #Edo, #Rivers, #Ondo & #Delta States by December unless security agencies step up surveillance & intel to recover looted arms & ammo in d hands of hoodlums. Security agencies + military can curtail it via credible intel from locals

Completing the service year and getting back home wasn't so easy. I came from a home where neighbours are SEE FINISH. So it wasn't a matter of negotiation for me to know that I wasn't returning home to my parents after Ajuwaya
Not like I didn't try to. I did but got my fingers burnt. Young chaps in the streets were often referred to see me for their difficult home works. One young girl nearly rubbished my degree when she brought WORD PROBLEM mathematics assignment. It was really a problem.

Second THREAD documenting violent events relating to #EndSARS & #EndSWAT protests from Oct 19th –26th.

The majority of calls to #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria have been peaceful.

This thread helps ensure incidents where violence has ensued are not swept under the rug.

N.B. Like last week, I can’t give a full picture of each event. Events not listed or deeply covered I’m still investigating. I offer what info I can.

Numbers like 9.068064, 7.511115 are geocodes, identifying a place like coordinates do.

My Crazy Thoughts On #Lekki

When the #EndSARS protests began, no one mentioned President @MBuhari

(Thread)
But, just like aides of Governor @senatorbenayade often find a way to make others opinions seem like direct attacks on their principal, apologists and handlers of the @NGRPresident did same.
Minister Lai Mohammed succeeded in selling the narrative to the press that protests were hijacked and it was bought hook, line and sinker! What a spin! That was to justify what will happen next especially as the seemingly facelessness of the protests made negotiations difficult!

It’s been an incredible week for our Open Source investigations team at #BBCAfricaEye. A short thread...

First, we saw the killers of these kids jailed in Cameroon
There’s detail on the sentencing here. The three men jailed are the same three named 2 years ago in our original report, plus their commander. Thanks to everyone who was part of this - it was a huge team effort bbc.co.uk/news/world-afr…
We also published this new investigation, which holds Nigeria’s state oil firm (the immensely powerful @NNPCgroup), to account for a devastating explosion in #Lagos that destroyed a school and killed 23 people

Dear @jidesanwoolu.

I hope this meets you well. Thank for the incredible work you’re doing. Sir, Ikotun-Abaranje Rd needs urgent attention. I have never had course to regret going to any part of Lagos until today. It’s both horrific and horrible. The road is almost impassable.
Something urgent needs to be done in the interim (as I learnt there’s a plan for the entire reconstruction of the road) to alleviate the suffering of these road users. I could feel a sense of abandonment on the faces of motorists @jidesanwoolu @Mr_JAGss #abaranje #lagos
Sir, I can almost assure you nobody is praying for you there. I learnt they approached the Chairman of Ikotun-Igando LCDA but he told them that they should not disturb him as nobody voted for him. There’s no way I could confirm this but pls do something quickly. @jidesanwoolu
