#Musings

She had just gotten home after a long day at the office, her mind was in a clutter, her relationship had just ended because she refused to have #sex before marriage.

She could feel her chest tighten everytime she thought about him.

She still loved him deeply.

⏭️
As she stepped into her apartment, #phcn struck, the heat built up so fast she dove into the bathroom, relaxing only when the cold shower drenched her.

She could hear her phone ringing but she wasn't about to interrupt the only peaceful moment she had experienced today.

⏭️
When she was done, she wiped herself dry, picked up her phone & saw it was a missed call from him, her heart lurched again, her mouth went dry, her whole body screamed in desperate need of his company, why was this no-sex thing such an issue, she mulled.

Should she give in?

This is Zokutu community on the outskirts of Kuje Area Council in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory, #Abuja. With approximately 3000 people living in this community, this cave is the only source of water – drinking, bathing, laundry

#ZokutuNeedsWater #GlobalGoals #SDG6
The total absence of drinking water in #Zokutu community attracted the @mediaforcc team to visit and tell the first-hand story of #WaterPoverty experienced.

#ZokutuNeedsWater #GlobalGoals #SDG6 #WASH #WASH4All #LeaveNoOneBehind
With poor road network, limited telecommunication access & mud houses, the level of development in #Zokutu is less than basic; more severe is the zero access to drinking water resulting in illnesses & deaths.

Please can we make this go viral? She was someone's NINE (9) Months for God's sake! How can people be heartless?
@segalink please sir can you take this up? That poor soul needs justice.

Please let's retweet, this could have been anyone's child.
The Police obviously collected bribe to cover up the murder of an innocent soul. How can the officers sleep well at night knowing that they covered up murder of an INNOCENT child? This baby deserves justice!

1/ A carelessly incurred fine, effectively ignoring a surging ISWAP, the CCB’s sudden impotence, and a judicial bailout for an under fire ruling party, Nigeria has become the land where the unnecessary is king.
2/ The drama between @MobilePunch and @CCBNigeria represents the latest indication of the current administration’s selective commitment to the rule of law.
3/ The irony of @CCBNigeria who responded to a letter against CJN #Onnoghen - an official who is no favourite of @MBuhari - in a matter of hours while ignoring a legal request for information that could potentially tar @AsoRock’s leading lights is inescapable.

Dear President @MBuhari, welcome to #Anambra - your state of campaign rallies

If everything happens as planned Mr. President, you will set your feet in Anambra - your state of campaign rallies - today.

Your Excellency, before you came back to become an elected president of the Federal Republic, there were dozens of events that offered you compelling reasons to pay visit to the Light of the Nation, but you found excuses to stay away.
#PMBInAnambra
Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu died and was buried. Leaders from all over the world poured in to Nnewi, Anambra State, to pay their last respect. You were nowhere to be found.

We lost our very own erudite Prof. Chinua Achebe, you couldn't care less, Your Excellency.

#Nigeria’s military used a speech by Donald Trump to justify shooting at protesters in October. We investigated what happened and uncovered that an elite battalion fired machine guns into a crowd of unarmed marchers. nyti.ms/2GwdKAW
The military @HQNigerianArmy made several questionable claims:

1. The marchers blocked traffic.
2. The marchers attacked a military checkpoint with weapons and rocks.
3. Only 3 people were killed.
We reviewed hundreds of videos and pictures, went to the crime scene in #Abuja, interviewed survivors and talked to the military. Here’s how we did it - and what we found out.

We believe #Abuja should have a modern #football club for everyone & we ’re making it happen with @AbujaMetroFC. This series of tweets highlights our 3-year start-up plan. #AbujaMetroFC @youriplawyer_ @dejigbenro @fchiejine @Suraj35766 @UucheGE @Donfiazo @ELEGBETE1
Our goal is to establish a modern football club that the entire Abuja Metropolis can embrace. Our vision is for #AbujaMetroFC to become a model professional football club and grow to compete at the highest level of association football.
With the tested & trusted #CommunityOwnership model. Anyone can become a co-owner of #AbujaMetroFC. We will not need money bags to start & grow our own football club, just a group of people making token contributions, which gives them a % of the ownership of the club.

President Obasanjo once called maintaining Nigeria Airways (NAL) irresponsible. Six years later, one of his successors, despite a petition from former NAL employees appealing for ₦45 billion in severance pay, is shopping the world for an investor for a proposed national carrier.
Between a ferocious fight over revenue sharing, and ignoring the obvious on Boko Haram, bad ideas seem to die slowly, such that it has almost obscured the recognition Nigeria’s music industry got from the world’s largest music label.
The latest #BokoHaram attacks don't suggest a resurgence of the group so much as they demonstrate its resilience, capacity for strategic hibernation and stealth.

They also indicate that the financing with which it procures weapons and its recruitment remain largely uninhibited.
