“Take a good look at this man. He has found his way into my book of HEROS. He has made me cry. Made me think. Wonder. Question. And change certain things. As you can see… He needs a hand more than anyone else. He has no hands. He has no legs. But he has eyes. Ears. A Mouth. A mind. And did not and doesn’t let all he doesn’t have stop him from doing whatever he believes he can do. He has become one of the most sought after motivational speakers. And in deed a reason to lead a purpose driven life. Yet, you will see full grown men and women, with all their bodies in tact, functioning and in the right places, at car parks, street corners and around parties, on roads and homes, BEGGING!!!! Now we have become careless brainwashed Good Samaritans who feed their deliberate laziness, encourage their begging and look at people who refuse to do the same as stingy, in humane, heartless and not religious. I look at this man’s picture every time a complete area boys starts with “Oga anything for the boys?” We may not know it, but we indirectly are subtly creating the society we will dwell in. Where some are 100% sure that they don’t need to raise a finger because out of every 10 Nigerians, there are 4 who have found justification to support their lazy and jobless cause. How can a guy in Nigeria do any job for money, make it and there is another who decides, he DOESN’T WANT TO WORK and we should tolerate that person. AS AS HOW?
How UAE visa ban almost ruined my wedding – Rita Dominic
Rita Dominic, the ace Nollywood actress, has recounted how the visa ban by United Arab Emirates (UAE) almost ruined her wedding.
The UAE immigration authorities had in October banned visa applications to 20 African countries including Nigeria.
In an appreciation post on Instagram on Tuesday, the movie star narrated how the distance between herself and her cloth designer almost affected the event.
It is believed that the fashion designer resides in Dubai.
Dominic also appreciated the gown designer for “going above and beyond” to get the dress to her despite the ban.
“Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @michael5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was a lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries,” she wrote.
“The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @michael_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going and above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.
“Thank you to my dream team who worked hard to get me looking good in this gown. Love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
