Why you should visit Borno State

My short  trip to maiduguri revealed to me what the media hasn’t told me about this beautiful hub of learning, hub of resources and hub of economic activities

Of all the places I have visited in Nigeria, Borno is probably one of the most fascinating and this is purely based on the few places I visited there.

Spent less than 20 minutes with the  Borno state governor but what I learnt about  Borno and Nigeria as a whole is priceless .

Imagine Borno being the most important commercial centre in Nigeria.

From being in the Lagos House in Maiduguri to the array of catfish displayed across various junctions to my night at the Barwee suites.

With little or no instructions from traffic wardens,everyone driving even cyclists obeyed traffic lights .

There were too many institutions of learning , I even lost count

In my short stay with the Governor, I found out A borno man has no business being poor, Borno state  is the largest in terms of land mass in Nigeria hence a world of opportunities is readily available to all.

Borno State is the most important commercial center in Nigeria,
Even the economy of kano depends on maiduguri

The Highest cash processing unit in the whole of West Africa is in a bank in Maiduguri

Most of the products that reach West Africa pass through Maiduguri  and as much as one thoudand trucks plight maiduguri to  Chad,Sudan, Libya and various parts of the world

And hey, they also use yellow keke napeps just like Lagos.

In fact everyone should visit Borno to know how beautiful and historic it is

Hushpuppi shades Kcee & Oge Okoye on Snapchat

87

Looks like Hushpuppi has a penchant for trouble! Over the weekend, the Malaysia based ‘businessman’ took a photo of stacks of dollars while aboard a plane and shared it on Snapchat. He made sure his passport was showing in the photo and later explained why. According to him, this was to deter people from stealing the photos, just like “uncle bla bla and auntie bla bla.”

Nigerians of course decoded who he was taking about – singer, Kcee and actress, Oge Okoye.

Weeks ago, Kcee was called out for stealing a photo of someone’s stack of dollars and passing it off as his own on Instagram, while Oge Okoye was also slammed out for sharing a photo of dogs that were not hers, even though she claimed otherwise.

Former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s son, Olujonwo, and Temitope Adebutu, the daughter of Sir Kessington Adebutu, popularly known as Baba Ijebu, had their traditional wedding on Thursday May 11, at the Balmoral Hall of Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos.

The event was attended by Gbenga Daniel, Donald Duke amongst other politicians and business moguls. Tope and Olujonwo had their introduction ceremony in December 2016 and their white wedding will take place tomorrow.

Earlier on, there was controversy over the wedding as one of the wives of former President Obasanjo, Taiwo, filed a lawsuit at an Ikeja High Court, requesting for it to be postponed to a date after June 1st, arguing that she was excluded from all preparations leading to the introduction and proposed wedding, and it will lead to disaster and strange deaths in the country. It was  dismissed on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the suit because 33-year-old Olujonwo Obasanjo is an adult.
