      This thing is now annoying. Transfast asked for too many details so I left that one. For some reason western union wouldn’t go through and it wasn’t telling me why. Now MoneyGram is saying the account name doesn’t match the account number. What do I do now? I really want to send what I can because Oluchi indirectly helped me spot a security breach with my account.

    Bono has finally weighed in. I wonder what took him this long. Bono – cui bono? Bent as a nine bob note.

    Love just his music.

    Anytime I see Dangote my heart smiles.
    I love the humility that comes with all the noise that surrounds him and all those stories of people that have had personal encounter with him makes him a plus.

    bn,where is asa?


    August 30, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    Hello OLUCHI, the Lord is your strength and your guide. While i have contributed my widow’s might, i just wanted to say, you need to find something you can do to sustain you while you study. You are at school, what do you study, what are you good at and how often can you work, where are you currently located and what opportunities are available there? Can you be a lesson teacher for kids or people trying to write JAMB? Can you clean offices or homes? Whatever is lacking in your area can be changed into a business opportunity, please look inwards and think. Also, like someone said here, the Emlinks competition is still on, craft a nice write-up on doors and who knows, you just might win.

    Take kia!

    Dropping account numbers on BN with a story that could be made up is not it.

      pls @jinkelele wat is dere to verify, dat someone said she cant afford school fees and school accommodation? is that too hard for u to believe? please what wealthy family are you from to b oblivious of the plight of everyday Nigerians, atleast she didn’t come with some claims of being in hospital or being afflicted with some dreaded disease so chill, if u don’t want to help, let those who don’t mind do, aferall it is our money not yours, 2morrow now you will hav problem and expect people to believe you are for real, if sge is a scam thrn it’s between her and her God

      @jinkelele do u knw dat even in developed countries whr tins r gud dey hav stuffs like crowdfunding sites whr people go nd beg for money to take care of tins like dis or even smaller or bigger. we dnt have such in naija so she chose d only alternative, nd u feel u hav d right to try to make us tink she is fraud. people use crowdfunding sites to beg for money for breast implants nd dey get hundreds of thousands of dollars in few hours, dis is d problem wit Nigerians we, dnt like helpn each other nd its such a shame. pls let any one dat has put something for dis girl she no ask for millions.
