My name is Wasilah Ibrahim, I’m from Niger state and this is my #SuvivorSeries.
I’m from a family of 7; we lived together with my parents and 5 siblings. Our house was quite small, that my siblings and I slept in the living room while my parents slept in their room.
My father, Mallam Ibrahim was a gateman in Abuja and he spent most of his days there, but on his off days, he’d come home.  My mother on the other hand, was the hair platter in the area.  We weren’t rich but we were content.

My husband's dream was to have an orphanage one day. He loves kids a lot. We've been married for 6years before we adopted our little angel, Zahra. People always think the adoption idea was mine, but it was my husband's. He is a very supportive partner.
We got a call one saturday from my husband's niece about new babies at an orphange in another state. We were excited. We tried adopting from our state before trying out the other state. We registered with social services of both states and we were put on a waiting list.

I lived a very comfortable life with my wife Amina and my two girls Samira and Habiba. I’m a businessman so, I own and run several businesses in Abuja. My parents live in Kano, so, every December and Eid we travelled there to spend the holidays with them.
We usually travelled by road because it was convenient also because my girls’ and I always loved road trips.
However, in 2018, news began to spread that the roads were no longer safe.

Dear Arewa Ladies,
 Today I'll be sharing some advice with the unmarried sisters. To avoid ending in tears you should consider 3 factors before getting into relationships. Although in the end everything is destined to be, we do our best to be safe than sorry
So; CULTURAL DIFFERENCES/FAMILY BACKGROUND, TIMING and AGE GAP. Even though now that I think about it, the subsequent ones both depend on the first. You have to be realistic and honest with yourself. What is your culture like?
What are the expectations that your family has on you? What class are you from? What sort of life are you used to? What's the minimum that your parents expect from someone that wants to marry you?

I come from a decent family of 4 and I am the first child.  I graduated from university in 2014 with a 1st Class degree in Petroleum Chemistry. After being unemployed for 2 years, I started selling quality male footwear and materials to make ends meet.
One day, my dad asked me to drive him because the driver was ill. I didn’t want to at first because I had to fill out a client’s order but I begged my brother to handle the order. My dad ran into an old classmate who was the General Manager of an oil company, Alhaji Idris Amin.
