Single Lady with Bad Credit?

This is for everyone really....Tope has been nice enough to give us some insight.

All you have to do is top it up from time to time and each purchase will be registered with EXPERIAN the credit check company, thus building your points and making you more eligible to borrow in the future.

The excitement and nostalgia is still in the air with people linking everything to Obama, everyone feeling they can dream, dry jokes and so much more!

But hey, Obama did it! Congrats to him again.

They have been a few peculiar things being said and done pre and post the election.

Nigerian Prisons in Recruitment Scam?

The Police Zonal Headquarters in Abuja is yet to account for the N4.6 million recovered from a Chief Superintendent of Prisons, Mrs. Mba Josephine Uchenna and six others involved in a recent recruitment scam.


On the third of november 2008 on Muhri Okunola Street, victoria Island Lagos, the traffic was chaotic. A young lady (Uzoma Okere) driving home from work didn't move her vehicle out of the way of a millitary convoy on time, resulting severe beatings by armed Nigerian Navy men. The convoy consisted of Rear Admiral Harry Arogundade's personal Navy saloon car and his pilot truck, consisting of 6 armed bodyguards. The body guards in the process physically beat up several Price WaterHouse Coopers staff and destroyed cameras that were filming the event as it unfolded. The video clip was recorded from the PricewaterHouseCoopers office on a personal camera.
