Blog Reader Chidimma Wants to be The Reason Why You Shouldnt Quit Yet


My parents are still alive, I have never lost any of siblings, I went to good schools and my parents did their best to provide for me. I wouldn’t say I was abused as a child or that I had to serve someone in other to have my next meal. You would say I had a privileged childhood.

I wouldn’t deny that, it started well but along the line it got though. My parents began to struggle. Things began to change, threat of changing me to a cheaper school were made every day. School fees were paid after my parents borrowed from different sources. Things gradually moved from good to bad. At first, my parents were hiding the situation from me, they wanted me to just concentrate on my studies but at a certain age, my mum began to tell me the harsh realities. “things are difficult now, we can’t provide for you and your siblings  as we used to”

It dawn on me that it was time for me to start ‘hustling’, it was time for me to be a woman even though I barely knew what the word really meant. I had to start looking for ways to earn money so I could help my parents and younger siblings. I was born independent and stubborn; I never really believed in the word ‘impossible’. If someone could do it, then I could and I wasn’t scared of anyone. Well, except my father, he was the only person in this I was genuinely scared of.

A Very Special Year New Message From Our Very Own Inspector Nifemi

Our light will shine.My dear lailans, before the unveiling of a new package of Aproko gist for this promising year 2016....I want us to ponder on this message.

New year is all about starting afresh and realising your dreams. Remember, everyday is a fresh start. Always hold on to what is good, even if it is a handful of earth.

It is another new chapter of our dreams, there is an inestimable quantum of energies flowing through us as we begin yet another phase of our yearly adventure(s).Life is constant motion - We must  never stagnate or freeze. It is very important to take note of some helpful nuggets which will be a daily reminder through the course of the journey.

Read The Press Statement on The Movie '93 Days'

We hereby categorically and strongly deny all the allegations contained in the recent press statement released by one Dr Anna Adadevoh, who claims to be acting on behalf of the Cardoso and Adadevoh families. The said allegations are not only untrue they are malicious and scurrilous and a calculated attempt to sabotage our feature film, “93Days".

93 Days is not the biopic of anyone individual and has never claimed to be the story of Doctor Stella Adadevoh. Whilst that in itself is a strong story, we found it more compelling to tell a story that celebrates many of the heroes of the fight against Ebola. These include the doctors, nurses and staff of First Consultant’s Hospital, the employees of the Lagos State and Federal Ministries of Health, Members of the Emergency Operations Centre(EOC), corporate and individual Nigerians who rose to the challenge of fighting the scourge as well as the WHO team that came into help at the risk of personal injury and even death.
