7 relationship habits Nigerian women need to drop with 2017



Unhappy lovers.
There are certain habits you exhibit in your relationship that just need  to be dropped with the year about to end.Like every year before it, year 2017 has been filled with enough of everything that makes a society tick.

Some of these things we absolutely love – beautiful weddings, romantic proposals, unforgettable concerts, smashing shows, social media moments – and some of these things we’d rather not see anymore – some disastrous occurrences, certain politicians and personalities as well as some behaviours.
Below we list seven of the relationship patterns that you should leave behind in 2017.

1. Playing hard to get

2017 should be the last year where feelings for a guy will be hidden or downplayed simply because you want to conform of society’s idea of dating and relationships.
Please say yes if you want to go on a date with him, please kiss and go ahead to have sex on the first date if that’s really what you want to do.
If you are not doing it, let it be because you do not want to. Let it be because it is against your beliefs and values. Not because of what your friends will say or what society will think of you.

2. “Men are scum”

Let this year be the last we hear of the men are scum pop culture slang.
2017 has shown so vividly, more than ever before, that being scum is genderless. Being a bad partner is not a function of your gender – men cheat, women cheat.
Everyone needs to be the best they can be to the love of their life and stop apportioning blame.
We all need to fix up our lives.

3. Refusing to shoot your shot

If you are yet to get the memo, this is it. More women are becoming bolder at going after men they’re crushing on.
Beautiful relationships these days don’t begin only when the guy initiates things.
Guys do not have to ask you all the time. Good things happen to women who shoot their shots.
The idea that a guy has to be the one to ask you out should be left in 2017.

4. Communicating with the Internet

Choosing to post your relationship problems on social media before discussing and conversing with your partner needs to stop this year, too.
It’s OK to tweet about it if you’re comfortable with it, it’s Ok to also send your relationship problems to relationship blogs, too, but that should be the last resort. Not what yu automatically do first when you have issues in your relationship.

5. Cheating

It’s silly to think women do not cheat. And even sillier to assume that we don’t know that women are arguably worse cheats that men.
Please let that stop in 2017. Be a faithful girlfriend, a faithful wife in 2018, abeg.

6. Staying in an obviously bad relationship

Whatever your reasons are, you are only doing yourself a disservice and suffering in vain if your relationship is obviously irreversibly bad and you refuse to get out of it.
It’s even worse when you are unmarried but you choose to remain because of what people will say, because you have been together for long or because you want to keep your body count low.
Please stop it in 2017. Be bold and step out of that relationship once it no longer does anytingn for your spirit soul or body.

7. Opposite-sex besties

This one is quite controversial but as we have already previously opined in this article, any bestie that’ll jeopardise your relationship, the ones whose presence strains the bond between you and your partner…  you have to find a way around it.
Bottom line is this; every behavioural pattern that hurts your relationship needs to be left in 2017.
Do better in the new year.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)




A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

Reno Omokri Nuggets

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
