After finally entering the market in years, Doyin of BBNaija claims that people are suffering in Nigeria.

Doyin, a former housemate on Big Brother Naija, talked about her first-ever market visit in years.

She revealed that she had been disconnected from reality and that she finally realized this after visiting Lagos’ well-known Ogba market.

Seeing how much hardship there is in Nigeria, she thanked God for her privileges.

According to her

I realized today for the first time how detached from reality I am…..people are suffering!!!!

If you can afford food, accommodation and your basic needs you don’t even know what God has done for you.

Today has to be the day I’ve felt the most grateful to God for the life I have.

Yes I visited ogba market and a place called Sunday market. All I could say last night was just thank you Jesus. Sometimes it’s good to visit places outside your comfort zone.

I’ve never gone to the food market to buy even something as small as pepper in my entire adult life. I must have followed my mum once or twice as a child but I don’t even remember the experience

Yesterday was really eye opening for me.

It’s funny how I don’t even know how much they sell pepper or tomatoes or chicken or Turkey or anything at all. There is a whole world outside what I know or what I’m used to.

I realized I’ve been a brat for the most part of my life. I get frustrated when I don’t get my way over frivolous things when there are people that can’t even feed.

If you really want to know how privileged you are, visit the less privileged and you learn to be more grateful.”

Nigerians Suffering But Leaders Sending Money To Themselves For Holidays – Mr Macaroni

Debo Adebayo, the famous Nigerian social activist and skit maker, who is better known as Mr Macaroni, has slammed the leadership of the National Assembly.

He slammed them over their luxurious lifestyles amid unbearable hardship by Nigerians.

Macaroni lamented that while Nigerians are going through unbearable hardship, their leaders were sending money to themselves to enjoy holidays.

His reaction followed a video circulating online in which the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, during a plenary session announced to his colleagues that “a token has been sent to their various accounts to enable them enjoy their holiday”.

The development has attracted many negative comments from Nigerians.

In a post on his social media platform on Wednesday, the social activist questioned why poor Nigerians have to pay for the luxurious lifestyle of their leaders.

“The Senate President has sent very expensive prayers out of the insufficient blessings of over 200 million people to himself and his already blessed colleagues at the National Assembly.

“These are the leaders that have asked struggling Nigerians to make sacrifices if they want things to work in the country. So while Nigerians are going through unbearable hardship, our leaders are sending money to themselves to enjoy holidays.

“Who are those that should be making sacrifices if not for our leaders?

“Do our leaders understand that leadership is about service, selfishness and sacrifice??

“Why do the poor people of Nigeria have to pay for the luxurious lifestyle of the leaders?? Why??? This isn’t leadership!!!”

See How Nigerians Reacted After Appeal Court Reinstated Adeleke As Osun Governor

Nigerians have reacted after the Appeal Court on Friday upheld the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State.

The Appeal Court set aside the decision of the Osun State Governorship tribunal which sacked Adeleke as the governor of the state and affirmed the victory of Adeleke.

Recall that the former governor of the state and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gboyega Oyetola, had challenged Adeleke’s victory in the July 16 governorship election, before the election petition tribunal in Osun state.

The tribunal led by Justice Tertse Kume, in a split judgement of 2 to 1, sacked Adeleke based on irregularities in 744 polling units across ten local government areas of the state.

It canceled the alleged illegal votes and declared Oyetola the winner on legally valid votes.

The tribunal had also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and issue it to Oyetola.

In a ruling on Friday, the court ruled that the APC and Oyetola failed to prove its over-voting case against Adeleke.

Following the development, netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to express their reactions to the ruling of the appellate court.

See some of the reactions below.

@DaddyboyI wrote: “Very Good judgment for our democracy.”

@toninny wrote: “Oyetola go Supreme Court, let them disqualify you once more so you can allow Adeleke to face his job.”

@iamLABOD wrote: “That is the will of God and that is the will of the Osun masses too. If not for rigging, this man should be doing his second-year tenure now. Osun people want him, and he is performing for them already. So, therefore, let no man worry Imole again.”
