1) Monday I – I can never forget how she ran inside my house shouting, “Please help me! please help me! my house is collapsing”. Mama Abigail had just moved into the her new building not quite long. “Is collapsing?” I asked her. I needed no answer to my question because I could tell by the look on her face that she was not joking. I ran out of my house heading towards the building that was literally falling apart. She ran along side with me. But as soon as we got close to the building, we halted all at once because it dawn on us that if we move any closer, we would be history. I never knew that it was not a blockbuster movie but that the falling blocks will literally burst my head open.

Thank God Mama Abigail was home alone and was outside washing her children’s wears when the building started collapsing. Her husband was off for work and the kids were in school. God is really merciful. Papa Abigail invested so much in that building and even took a loan to complete the building. How can he cope with paying for a house rent and also servicing his unfortunate indebtedness.

Some persons were saying that Papa Abigail was bewitched from his village but nothing could be further from the truth. The house was constructed with substandard materials. We need to stop blaming witches and the devil for what they are innocent of. Africans love blaming witches. See, even a witch can testify that Emilinks produces good quality material and cannot even conspire to collapse a building that has a touch of Emilinks’s materials. Please let’s help ourselves by hooking up with Emilinks and stop blaming witches.

2) David – There was a day, I was passing by a building still in construction. The building was tall and people use to say when it’s completed, it’s going to be the most beautiful building in that area. I couldn’t agree more as I stood and admired it. Workers were working hard and everything was going well. I turned to continue my journey and 2 mins later the unexpected happened. I heard the building collapsing, I immediately turned back…it was tragic. I was moved to tears as I could see people running out and others trapped.
Lives were lost because not all the workers could get out before it crashed to the ground. The once beautiful building was reduced to rubbish all because of substandard materials being used. The state government waded into the matter and ordered both the owner and the contractors arrested to investigate the cause. It was however verified that substandard materials was the cause.
There are some things we are ignorant of that causes incidents like this, everybody should know this :
1. Managing materials: When building any high rising structure, dont manage. Use the right amount of materials and use quality.
2. Failure to follow the books: Sometimes people fail to adhere to recommended and approved plans and specifications. When building, follow the books. Dont seek quick fix or shortcuts. It always backfire.
3. Understanding Weights: Buildings, like all structures, are designed to support certain loads without deforming excessively. The loads are the weights
of people, wind, furnitures, rain etc.
4. Excessive alternation: dont change the plan too much during construction process. ‘I want the bedroom bigger’. ‘No the kitchen should be here, not
there. ‘Can this foundation take another floor?’.
5. Thorough Geotechnical Investigation also known as soil test should be done: Knowledge of the soil profile and its characteristics should be known. #Day27 #Emilinks #MyDoorStory

5) Samuel O. – I narrowly escaped crashing with my old apartment two-story building. I woke up early in the morning on 25th of August 2005, I prayed to God for making witness another day, immediately my boss in my place of work called me and I couldn’t brush, eat and even bath with soap, I quickly rush every of my doings to make it, but i never knew God is about saving me from crashing with the house built with low quality. Not quite long I received a call in the bus that my old apartment just collapsed, that wasn’t even the sadden part, I was told people also died in the accident and properties where lost, I almost got mad at myself and got destabilized immediately. I have to think deep of what have might cause the fall of the building, so I recall the building got some crash around it and might have been built with low material, then I was so wise enough to ask for details of the lay down of every building before park into, to be sure they are built of quality materials, till I build my house. #Emilinks #bellanaija #mydoorstory #Day 27

6) Gloria A. – A scenario occur when I was very tender, I wasn’t told but I was a living witness, I was privilege to go to a government school which we pay less amount compare to private school,my little school In my hometown doesn’t have a good learning environment, the structures, buildings, classrooms, roofing material, chairs and tables are battered, but I have no choice because I came from a poor home, because of this reason I decided to take teaching as my profession in the future as a young little kid to help the less privileged, but a tragic moment almost discouraged me from learning and fulfilling my career, it happen in a good afternoon when we were in the class studying, suddenly we heard sudden crash from roof toward the wall, the next surprising thing I witnessed was that I and my colleague landed in the hospital but this little plain kids all died by this tragic moment, I was the only surviving student in my class. Since then I decided not to go to school again and also scared of studying in a public school built with substandard material. Not quite long my uncle came to pick me to Lagos to study, in a few weeks after i got admission to a private school with good environment and everlasting structures and my dreams lives again. That made me promise to build with best quality material for proper learning and assimilation when I become a teacher in future and even my house. Day27 #mydoorstory #bellanaija #Emilinks

7) Akinkunmi A. – True Live Story #Emilinks
I have always heard of natural disaster happening at different places around the world..I remember watching the “Hurricane Catrina” on CNN ;how lives and properties were lost.
But in 2012 I witnessed one myself; I slept that night in our rented apartment after i finished eating the meal my mum prepared…(we live in 2bed room flat) and it’s just my sister and I that lives with our mother (single parent)
It began as rain and I was happy because there is a way I sleep better whenever it rains like that…suddenly I opened my eye and before me was a swimming pool and couple of friends swimming inside the pool :bidding me to join them; I hesitated at first since I have never swam before but somehow I joined them and I was swimming like a pro…..it was so interesting..and before I knew it I started hearing noise from different corners all my friends were gone….oh what could be happening(I thought within me)
Suddenly I opened my eye and discovered that my room was the swimming pool and the voices I was hearing was the voice of my mum and my sister calling me to wake up (oh! I’ve been dreaming!)…. I struggled out of the room..half of the room was already filled with water our roof has gone on tour courtesy of the raging storm…I have never seen anything like it before
The following morning was full of so much for us :we were there trying to salvage some of our soaked belongings…. All our electronics were already soaked with water…it was such a traumatising experience
We left the apartment the following week for another one nearby…and I vowed to myself that I will rather not build a house than build with substandard material..it is always a huge risk that can be detrimental and can as well throw lives and property in jeopardy….I appreciate the efforts of #Emilinks toward promotion of quality materials (you have no idea how many lives and property u re saving on daily basis)….Thank you #MyDoorStory #bellanaija #Day27

8) @sandradeborah96 – Sometimes, I feel like being an innocent kid forever but my purpose must be accomplished in this earth. Lol.
I grew up in the village. So I attended one government owned primary school near my village. Small children are so so naive. They have not much things to worry about.
School was in session and I happened to be in primary one. One day, we were learning in the classroom as usual when the weather started to change gradual. As an innocent children in my class, as became happy for a reason i can’t just say. Before we know what was happing, it started to rain heavily. Our aunties went and closed the doors so that we will feel warm. So, some of our aunties started to sleep after commanding us to bend down and sleep. Did we sleep? No, we didn’t instead, we were busy playing under our chairs. Squeaking like a-day-old chicks. It continued raining and later, the rain was accompanied with thunder and lightening and finally horrifying wind. This kept on until all of a sudden, the roof of our building went flying in the air like balloon. Our teachers who had been sleeping jumped up and were shouting what i can’t remember. We the small pupils in that building started jubilating without knowing that we were in great danger. Our aunties helped us to join other buildings. We were running, laughing and shouting with joy unknown to us that God just delivered us great danger.
It was later when i became adult that i now know the cause of what happened to my school building. Government will bring huge amount of money for standard school building but some greedy elements will divert the money to their personal pockets bringing out small amount of money to build school buildings with inferior materials. What if this building collapsed on us? It would have made a hot selling news headline.. God forbid evivil #emilinks #mydoorstory #day27

9) @olufemiomope – #emilinks #MyDoorStory
There is this office opposite my house.there is always something to repair almost every week.if doors were not being replaced fences would be rebuilt to the extent that office was tagged ‘change’ cos nothing is permanent in terms of their materials.i keep wondering why this is so until a fateful day when an incident happened which saw the collapse of the whole building itself.it happened at midnight and so no one got injured.it was early in the morning that all the workers met the shock of their lives so i thought.a friend who works there later made me realise its not a surprise to most of them as they have been forecasting such to happen because the head of the company uses substandard materials and even when repairs were being made he still went for the same substandard materials and he kept on damaging the building himself till it got weaker and the rain that even saw its collapse wasn’t an heavy one the building was just too weak to withstand it.the workers were glad it didnt happen when they were all at work.now the boss is ready to take any advice to buy quality materials.that was how i went to meet him out of sympathy and introduced him to the world of Emilinks because emilinks is the order of the day in my house and God so good he took my advice.that was how he rebuilt the building using all of emilinks materials u would even think he is the owner of emilinks because he used emilinks for everything to the extent that the large table and chairs were also made from emilinks material. #Bellanaijaonline

    When I traveled to bayelsa to school there, I thought it better to stay off campus than in the hostel. So I moved in with my friend hoping to rent a vacant apartment downstairs but I was unsure because the building looked weak,although it had all the required social and basic amenities but I shrugged all my suspicions off since my friend had been living there for two years now with no issues, so why would a problem start now when am moving in.
    One day,my friend and I went for lectures, came back and saw the building’s first floor had collapsed but my friend lived in the apartment in the middle, so the two of us salvaged the situation by grabbing what we could before the building totally collapsed.Now I have moved to a new apartment that’s much stronger and better.
    Therefore, we should know that building houses without quality and standard materials can cause loss of lives and properties so let’s get quality building materials from #Emilinks now!!

    It is in rare cases that we can attribute the problem of building collapse to any other factor other than “the use of substandard building materials”… As an estate management firm, the only way to make profit, is using quality product for the house you will rent or sole out.
    I spent just year serving with a developer and estate management firm. Though the period was short, but I learnt a lot. The then manager (Now sacked) chose to build one of the clients’ house with really crappy products for his own personal gain.

    The building was completed and rented out to tenants during hammattan season. We never had problem or received any complain from the tenants until raining season. It was a new building, but as good as not living under a roof whenever its rain.

    What really happened was that, instead of getting quality product from reliable suppliers like Emilinks, the manager connived with the procurement officer to supply crappy roof and doors which whenever its rain, it escapes freely into the tenants’ apartments.
    Nothing is as embarrassing as seen the tenants of such an expensive house taking their mattresses out under the sun to dry. Though, I was not a resident of that house, but I knew the house never provided any comfort in whatsoever way to its tenants.

    It was unfortunate that we spent most of our company’s earnings on a continuous maintenance of the house. The accountant of the firm later warned that, we had almost incurred more than the initial cost of constructing the building and we were running on lost in the particular building’s account.

    The wastage which would have been avoided, should the manager ordered the products from a recognized quality supplier like Emilinks. As a developer, estate management or agent, with Emilinks product in your house, you are talking of a house in which your tenants are saved and secured.

    Had I known is always the case when people do not consider standard materials when building. What you stand to loose it more than what you gain. Any building built with substandard materials poses a threat to life and safety. As a quality analyst, I made it my point of duty never to cut corners and choose cheap materials when building. I lost my only son to the use of substandard materials and I’m never goin to make such a mistake twice. When I learnt of emilinks, I was glad that finally qua has come to stay. They make the best blouse hold furniture ever and they are a true beauty worth every farthing. Im choosing the best path now, I’m going for emilinks in any building contract I av.

    The importance of building houses with quality materials and not substandard materials should be very paramount in the mind of the owner, architect and contractor. This will promote safety and protection of individuals. A house is supposed to be a source of refuge and shelter from unfavourable conditions. The reverse is the case in our society. These days, Many a individuals want to complete a Building project quickly without actually sitting down to contemplate the effect of using substandard materials and the hazard and the shame that comes along with it. This incident happened in my street. A day was set aside for the House warming of a certain man. Announcement had gone far and wide. On this day, many people were in attendance. while celebration was going on, a noise was heard like the rumble of the earth quaking and before we could decipher the noise, the building had given way and was crumbling. This was supposed to be a new house and one that is supposed to last for years to come. Many people were injured and more expenses were incurred that would have been averted if good and quality materials like Emilinks product had been used which have got durability. #Emilinks #mydoorstory #day28

    Staying in benin, I have seen different types of buildings, I have seen the gud, the bad , and the terrible!!! This made me more aware of the advantages of good and quality building materials and also of the disadvantages of Substandard materials .
    I acquired a piece of land in a water logged area, but I am not suffering like others are because I made sure I used quality materials… When the rains come, my neighbours would sometimes pack some of their properties to my place to protect them from the water! Mmm, Substandard materials are terrible! It’s been 10yrs now, and my building is still standing… Some desert their homes during raining season and come back during dry season. Thanks to Emilinks for producing quality products, because of these quality products, I’m not running up and down… Be like me, get quality products and have peace of mind, Get Emilinks product… I have tested them and I’m still trusting them.

    The difference is clear !!! Avoid Substandard materials, Avoid it! Get Emilinks.

    Growing up in the village was terrible for me, we suffered wen it was rainy season,bcos,we had thatched roof and rain cud easily pass thru. I prayed for God to help us. Finally, My uncle decided to help us and he told us to move in with him and his family we were happy,”finally God has heard me ” dat was wat I was saying! I never knew wat was ahead of me. 3days after we arrived, I was sleeping and I felt something cold dripping on me, I sprang up in shock and discovered the room was leaking! Oh no, not again! I said to myself. . . I tot I had some spiritual problem, to make everything worse, the kitchen door fell and make a loud noise, lo and behold, there was a Crack in the kitchen wall too.
    My aunty on hearing everything, told my mum and I to come stay with her instead… It’s been 4yrs now and I sleep peacefully without having to wake up at night… I can see the difference between quality materials and Substandard materials.
    I neva want to go back to a leaking house, who nor like better thing?Choose quality materials, Use Emilinks materials… I can say dis bcos I’m currently living in a house wit Emilinks written all over it, and as such, I have forgotten the raining days. This is my story!

    Moving out of the barracks as a teenager was quite disheartening for me after the death of my dad, I loved and cherished every memory of that block,though our block was quite difference in terms of features from other blocks reason being that it was the last block to be built. But that building was where I made real childhood friends who were my sisters and brothers,I took my first steps in that building. After moving out in 2005, I always hope and pray for long life so I can go back there someday and show my children where I was raised and share some sweet memories with them. All these memories came to total ruins in 2014 when the sudden the news of a collapsed building made the news headlines, to my greatest surprise I found out that the building being talked about was this same building I grew up. All that came to my mind was the old stories my dad would tell us concerning that building, that it was the last to be built among others hence the reason for the poor structure. This was not an excuse to use poor building materials and with Emilinks your no 1 stop for original building materials be sure to get good quality materials.

    I believe I have a firsthand information on the terrible things that could occur as a result of using Substandard materials…
    It was the last day in orientation camp(Nysc) I received my posting letter and was glad I was posted to a tertiary institution… I never knew that was the place I was going to learn a very valuable lesson from. I was posted as an assistant lecturer, so one day I had class and the course rep informed me on the venue of the lecture hall. It was the popular “UNITY HALL”. On getting there, the sight of the chairs and table was annoying, you could see fake written all over them. I eventually decided to ignore them and focus on my lecture, since it was my very first lecture.
    Surprisingly and shockingly, we heard a loud thud and the building we were in, shook! My life flashed before my eyes.. My heart ran and left me. . . I was confusion personified. We were hearing screams and prayers from outside, some students and I eventually gathered heart and mind, and slowly tip-toed outside only to find out that the stairs had fallen off, the school called a rescue team and we came down thru a ladder . It’s as horrible as it sounds. .. I was traumatized for weeks. . . The school management, brought down the whole building and started building, but this time, with quality materials! Someone eventually tod tod them of Emilinks… I’m still serving here and the new and rebranded unity hall is isaisalmost completed, u cud smell the quality materials a mile away. Thanks to Emilinks, another corper and students wouldn’t have to go thru my ordeal. Thus is my story.. I. I have of course learnt the importance of using quality materials the hard way!

    A thing of beauty is a joy forever. This is applicable to houses especially when the quality of the building materials is not compromised for cost. Our house has been standing for almost four years and asides minor repairs (like installing Emilinks fittings), it is still standing strong.
    However, it has not always been like that. We have come close to calamity on a few occasions. While living in a rented apartment, the greedy landlord would collect the rent when due but would never perform minor repairs. At the same time, he wouldn’t give us permission to fix the ceiling that had begun to leak whenever it rained or build a loft over the window to prevent rain from trickling in.
    One fateful night, it rained cats and dogs. Apart from the roof and windows that were leaking, rain started to seep in from under the door. We immediately got to work, mopping water and moving our property to drier areas. After a while, out of sheer frustration and hopelessness, we huddled up in a corner. It was pointless packing water out because the more we worked, the more the water flowed in.
    Then calamity struck. A wooden beam that had been weakened by water fell, bringing splinters of asbestos with it. But for the quick reflexes of my elder brother, he would have been severely injured. He got away with minor scratches on his arm and leg.
    By morning, we were weary with exhaustion. Nobody could go to work. We salvaged what was left of our property and put some outside to dry.
    While I was outside, I heard a loud noise. The wall where I had just spread my clothes collapsed. It was a close shave.
    The landlord came round and offered his apologies but my dad would not have any of it. If looks could kill, the landlord would have been dead and buried. The collapsing of the roof and wall could easily have led to our deaths.
    Of course, the landlord did the necessary repairs but my dad started planning to build our house. He wasn’t earning much but he told us that he couldn’t skimp on quality. He paid for Emilinks doors and windows which are unarguably the best in Nigeria. Slowly but surely, we built our house with only good materials. That decision paid off because our house has stood the test of time. It is indeed a shelter from the elements, both rain and sun.
    When people ask me for building advice, I tell them one thing. If you want your house to last a year, buy substandard materials. If you want your house to last forever, use Emilinks. Emilinks will save you a lot of lives, property, time, money and tears. #Emilinks #mydoorstory #day28

    I was sleeping in the second floor of the building
    when I heard the sound not too long before I went
    to bed at about 10 -10:30 pm on a Wednesday Night.
    At first I thought it was a bomb before I could
    realize anything I heard crack sound again and the
    entire building went down with the whole eight of us
    sleeping in different rooms.
    Sleeping next to me was my cousin James; we
    were both displaced when
    the building collapsed. James was sheltered by
    two beams that created a relief over-lay that
    prevented the concrete from crushing him to death.
    Everything went black when the building collapsed
    and I could not move. The only thing I did was
    digging the sand with my two hands looking for a
    way out but all effort could not direct
    me to any exit point.
    I was in between the building for hours until help found me on Thursday afternoon about 1pm. It is an experience I don’t even wish for an enemy, it was a near death experience.
    Investigations later proved the building collapsed due to sub-standard building materials.

    What I can advice to prevent happenings like this is provision of housing for people. If each person still needs to struggle to build his own
    house with inadequate money, he hardly can pay for
    good quality. Also if the industry is not
    well regulated and anybody can be a
    contractor just because you have access to people
    who are in a position to give you contracts, then this buildings collapsing might just not end. #Emilinks #Day28 #MyDoorStory

    Day 28
    The demerits or disadvantages of using Substandard materials while building cannot be over emphasized… The damages the use of Substandard materials has caused are too numerous to mention. My cousin has an everlasting scar on her back because of a Substandard wardrobe that was installed in the house… You could detect the wardrobe was fake by simply looking at the wardrobe, the wardrobe had sharp edges and would cut you if care if not taken! On a Saturday afternoon about 2yrs ago, my cousin, Steph, was in her room, she was busy arranging her room and she opened the wardrobe door to keep clothes, mistakenly, some feel down, so she bent over to pick them up as she was standing up, the wardrobe door shifted and she pushed her back to the sharp corner of the wardrobe! The wardrobe pierced her back and the result of that is the scar on her back… We thank God it wasn’t worse than that, but the situation would have completely be avoided if only the wardrobe was a quality wardrobe like dat made by Emilinks. It is better to use quality materials and save yourself the stress and pains of having scars for the rest of your life.

    My mother has always told me never to judge a book by its cover, since the treasures associated with a particular item are almost always hidden on the inside, but how can you not judge a house with bad doors? Is it even possible for a house, or a building to have bad doors (either on the interior or exterior) and serve a functional purpose?
    Take a hospital for instance: brightly-coloured, safe-looking doors make the patients feel safe and secure. This is important because physical healing comes after emotional and psychological healing.
    In schools, the doors in the classes give the students a sense of closeness, which helps bonding with teachers and fellow students, and also facilitates learning. In the student hostels and dormitories, the doors provide compartmentalization for the various students’ quarters, and also provides security for the students.
    Also, Nigeria is a very religious country, hence the overwhelming presence of churches and mosques. The doors to these places of worship disconnect them from the outside world, giving a sense of holiness and sacredness.
    The importance of doors in office blocks cannot be over-emphasized, because they provide security, compartmentalization, safe-keeping, etc., in addition to branding of the company/companies in the building.
    Lastly, as a serial entrepreneur, I have come to learn that branding matters a lot in getting and keeping customers for a business or company. Doors into an establishment give the impression and brief summary of what a company stand for, kind of like a mission statement. #Emilinks #day28

    I remembered vividly the nature of our former rented family house and can categorically state that “houses built with sub standard materials and less quality household fittings & fixtures, makes one’s home & entire household miserable”. From external (outside view probably because of the attractive painting, the structure really looks okay and I felt that must have lured my father to go ahead and rent. Meanwhile, we were the very first occupants, thus the worrisome experiences – I, my parents and siblings had, was uncalled for and incredible. The doors were really so bad and of low quality thus the edges were so rough & do tear our clothes. Do you know my Mum after preparing to get to the villa for the yearly August meeting , stepped out of her room, got caught by the rough edge of the bad door and her costly original ABADA badly torn. She wept so bitterly. The railing used for corridor rails, the metal door, kitchen sink and bath tubs all of a sudden became rusty and started disintegrating in particles. My parents warned and barred us from playing at the corridor for fear and risk of leaning against the railings, it breaks and we fall off. The fitted wardrobes were even homes to huge cockroaches, ants etc.
    Since virtually most fittings were of less quality, we encountered massive rodents’ visits (rats). We kept doing structure repairs every now and then. At a point the walls started getting water-drained and this poses risk as per structural problem as regards the quality of the roofing and materials. Though our rent was for couple of years but just after ten months, my dad smartly notified the house owner that he was to soon embark on a job related inter-city transfer thus we are likely to vacate shortly; he got back a year rent refund.
    When he took me along to examine the new house, I was just taking my time in examining the entire house and closets, fittings and fixture ( the doors, metal railings, tubs, wardrobe, already fitted kitchen wares), when the landlord stepped up to us and said “not to worry my people, those doors, wardrobes and virtually the entire fittings, fixtures and wares” were from #EMILINKS…He winks and stated I am a correct landlord. They were all looking superb and of great quality. We felt so satisfied, moved in and hard a very happy home experience and never encountered qualms at all over years. Equally mum stated that a former neighbour she met at the market equally told her that they’ve packed out from the former house.
    Till today including we including co-tenants do call the owner “oga correct landlord” and was just proudly because of his patronage of #EMILINKS brand and using quality materials in its entirely. This is our sixth year in the safe and enjoyable new house; my father’s personal house which is almost nearing completion is equally fully equipped with the #EMILINKS brand. He used to joke and tell us “who no like better thing joor…biko, I no want wahala (ie as per the very former house worrisome experiences) and I equally have in mind that in future once I’m fully established – #Emilinks all the way!!!

    I am Single mother and an entrepreneur,i work hard daily to cater for me and my children,paying the house rent wasn’t helping matters so I made a decision to build mine. hey!!!!! Here comes the gossip of all times “see this lady she has a child already and now wants to build a house,which man will marry her like that??..I pity her” I turned deaf ears to all that was said and built my house. I used quality materials and employed knowledgeable people for it. It wasn’t easy cause materials were expensive and paying workers was times 2.but I said to myself the house rent I was paying wasn’t worth it, today it’s the toilet, tomorrow rain is dropping inside the house. That encouraged me to do mine better cause I don’t want to pass through such stress. Now I’m married,i live in my husband’s house and rented mine. My tenants are testimonies. Quality and standard buildings keep u safe and reduces stress.thanks

    @EmilinksNG @Bellanaija And so it happened that we are relocating. We had to look for a house to stay in, so I and my husband saw a newly built house. Each of the bedrooms in the house has its own toilet and bathroom. We paid for the rent and moved in. It was when we moved in that we understand the problem we got ourselves into. I was very happy that finally we are settling down after much search not knowing that our problem has just begun. The first thing I noticed about the house is that the wall connecting the bathroom and the rooms suddenly started getting wet and moisture such that the paintings began to wear off. Despite all my warnings, my four year old kid would always go there and use his hand to be peeling the crumbling and the flaking paint out. It was so disgusting. Even cockroaches and some crawling reptiles like centipede started taking refuge in our home. We invested heavily on insecticides so as to curb the problem but it didn’t stop it. Whenever it rains, we are sure to have a wet floor, only God knows were all that water was coming in from. On a closer observation, we found out that the floor in the house has sunk causing it to separate from the wall. Even after some days, the floors will remain damp. I didn’t believe that a brand new house will be having problems like this.
    It was not until a big zigzag cracks happened at the master bedroom part of the wall that my husband said no way and those we are leaving that apartment immediately. We had just stayed for six months and our rent was meant to be for two years because the Landlord of the house refused one year rent. We approached the landlord and explained to him what the house is going through and also pleaded for him to pay us back the remaining money. He got infuriated, saying that there is no refund of money after payment. After much pleading and he remained adamant, we reported to the appropriate authorities. When they came to supervise the house, they found out that most of the building materials used in building the house was substandard They told us that we need to move out of the property immediately because the house will soon collapse and so we moved. The owner of the house was charged to court during which the house was demolished the government. The landlord learnt his lesson and so did we, because two years later when we were planning to build our own house, we made sure to go for quality, strong and standard materials. I bet everyone knows where to get that from. Its EMILINKS

    My Mum divorced Dad because of substandard materials(doors and iron-sheet) my Dad Refused to change in our Home. Whenever Rain falls,our rooms would be full of Water. And my Mum had been informing him long Time ago but Dad always says “I will do it, don’t Worry”. Until she packed out of the house.

    After 1week my Dad bought Emilinks Doors and fitted it in our house and he also changed the iron sheets.
    The next Day,my sister called Mum on phone and told her Dad had bought Emilinks Doors and he had fitted it, also iron sheets.

    She was excited a little bit because she hadn’t seen it.

    She decided to visit our home,getting there,she(Mum) couldn’t believe what she saw, she gave dad a pleasant hug and kissing. Since then up till now, we’re living a happy Home.

    Then I knew the importance of building houses with quality materials,it brings Unity, Love, Peace and Rest of Mind.

    With what I’ve experienced,I noticed whenever I’m old enough to build my own house,I should go for Emilinks doors because it last Long than Any other doors I’ve seen, secured, create peace and unity. And all other Quality Materials.
    God bless Emilinks doors for reuniting my Dad and Mum again.

    It’s not an easy task building a house in Rivers State especially in the swampy areas,not to talk of how expensive building materials cost. I remember when I started my building at elepranwo axis in port Harcourt city. I was discouraged by my family and friends because it was too swampy and a lot of houses built their has never lasted for more than 2-3years. I assured them that mine was going to be different,and indeed mine was different
    It’s been 7years and still counting,and my house is still in a perfect condition,not even a crack on the wall. All because I used quality and standard materials, I also ensured my workers were professionals.That was the secret to my house as people continue asking.
    To crown it all I used Emilinks furniture for all necessary part which needed furniture and that made my building stand out.
    Using good materials for building makes your building last long, improves the look of your environment,brings good health, saves lives and reduces expenses in future.

    A mistake they say can hunt you for the rest of your life and affect your children , well that might be the case of my millionaire uncle who lost his daughter last night,His 5storey mansion is barely two years old , I remember when the house was under construction , how my uncle couldn’t wait for its completion and did everything in his power to make it swift including buying all sort of substandard materials and didn’t even realise they were substandard cause of his rush, he got his wish though as the house was completed in no time , just last year that’s about 5 months after the building was done, the substandard materials began showing manifest, the walls always soaked, doors fell off, windows too, so it was one renovation or the other, sadly just last night one of the doors fell on his 5yearold child killing her instantly . Its really sad cause the cute little girl is merely a victim of her fathers mistake.Anyway I just got to know of emilinks and heard their materials are quality itself.Am going to reccommend it for my uncle after his mourning.
    One lesson I learnt from his mistake is never to stoop low to anything below quality , cause you just might be safing lives even that of your kids.

    I was born and brought up in lagos state where a lot of building existed both good and bad quality. My family was opportune to rent an apartment around MURITALA MUHAMMED AIRPORT IKEJA LAGOS, but the happiness around the life’s of people is low compare to their sadness, what did I mean by their sadness, a lot of building around there eventually crash or destroy because the buildings can’t withstand the level of the aircraft vibration, not only that a lot of lives are gone through this pathetic accident, so each time we sleep at home we are conscious of ourself for quick escape out of our apartment, but we give thanks to God for keeping our family alive from the year 2001-2013, but at the same time I was conscious of the physical conditions that make the building stand and I notice the building must have been built with a good quality material. Me and my dad notice each product in our apartment was tagged on it EmilinksNg, we took a step to browse and confirm the company and we took note of it. The year 2014 my parent got promoted and we got a new virgin site around Victoria Island which was near to EmilinksNg limited, that gave us an opportunity to get their product cause we have no option than to very conscious about the building material because it’s near to the sea and also the ever ranging wind.This factors made us took cognizant that only Emilinks products must be use for the construction and the interior comfortability for better rest of mind. To avoid setback in life,get good building materials and enjoy the best form of insurance,emilinks product is the best at all time

    During the years that we were leaving in rented apartments I came to believe that a good house is the one built with good materials of high quality not minding the appearance. It happened that we parked into a very beautiful house on the surface but as we lived in it, we discovered that indeed not everything that glitters is gold. Firstly it was the doors that lost their functions as they wouldn’t latch or lock anymore. Then the sewers started deteriorating badly and so quickly. There were waste water everywhere, rats and cockroaches became a part of our family even cats were sharing our balconies with us! We didn’t understand how everything was getting bad so fast, we tried to be extremely careful in using the facilities but to no avail. Then the worst thing happened, the rains came and the ceiling started leaking water in almost all rooms and that was the much we could bear of that house. Luckily my father was almost completing the building of his own house and we hurriedly packed out of the hellish rented house and started living in ours. Ours was yet to be completed at that time but it was far more comfortable than the beautiful horrible house as I like to describe it. My father ensured that quality materials such as good roof and ceiling, doors, sewers, steels and even paints were used in building his house and ever since, we have not replaced any facility in the house because none has gone bad for almost a decade now. Indeed appearance can be misleading and good quality surpasses good looks.
    #Emilinks is a sure definition of good quality.

    “Ayomide, Iremide, common enter the car you are late for school”. ‘Mummy you’ve passed Jason’s house’. She quickly made a u-turn and picked up Jason, who is in the same class with the twin. And so, Mrs Mark dropped the children at school and zoomed off to work.

    It was 3:30pm, the alarm bell from her phone reminded her it was time to pick up the children from school. Hurriedly, she abandoned what she was doing on the computer, picked her phone and handbag and ran to the car. Oh my God, she thought, “hope I’ll make it on time, the school is some distance from the office” she murmured.

    “Please officer, forgive me for beating the traffic light, am late to pick up my 4 year old twins, they are all we’ve got, and it took us 8 years to have them. My husband will not forgive me if anything happens to them. Please officer is way passed their closing time. I have to pick up my twins”. She was cautioned and was advised to drive safely.
    Is there a cultural display at the school today she thought? All she can see are; a large crowd- lots of people jumping and falling on the ground- Ambulance- Fire service- Police & Civil defense- Drilling machine- First aid boxes- (Emergency dispatch team she thought… was there a fight?). THE SCHOOL BUILDING IS GONE! she just realised, “Where is the school building?” She screamed. ‘Madam, the school building collapsed this morning and the children and their teachers have been buried alive for over 4 hours now, are your children in this school?’ “Nooooo” she shouted, “my twins! this cannot be real! the school building cannot collapse! Ayomide! Iremide!! Ayomide!!!!!!!!
    This is just one of the many gory tales of building collapse, going by the frequency that have become common in our society today, it is highly important that those who want to build their own houses either for personal or business purposes should be sure that they are using quality building materials throughout the process.

    The first step you should take to ensure that you contractor or builder uses high-quality material is to do some research. Make sure that your contractor and their team has extensive experience in constructing the type of home you’re looking to build. Ask if you can visit some completed projects and get a feel for the quality of materials and workmanship used in those homes.

    Using quality building materials whether or not they are green certified or energy efficient is essential for your long term investment and safety. There are many green products on the market today that are both beautiful and functional. Many green products that are environmentally friendly are also energy efficient in your home making your initial investment pay off in the long term.

    For building materials like Doors and Windows, it is especially important to choose a high quality product like Emilinks. You know Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing an energy efficient window, you can block out some of the harmful rays and at the same time, the quality of the windows will help reduce heat loss in the winter and keep in cooler air in the summer.
    The wood used in the framing of your new infill home and doors is another important consideration. Using properly treated wood products such as BluWood can prevent fungus, mold and wood ingesting pest infestations. That is why I would always recommend Emilinks product. They are the number ONE company to reach out to when in need of superior quality mentioned above. You know when you use Emilinks, not only are you using a superior building material, but you are also protecting your health and safety.

    “Don’t condemn me, I did what the owner asked. I tried to advice him otherwise but he wouldn’t listen.” that was my supervisor defending himself after the building project we were handling cracked and some parts fell apart. I saw the end from the beginning, but what could I do, the owner of the building wanted cheap materials for his building and it resulted into a part collapse. Yes I concur, quality material are expensive but in the long run, you’ll get to appreciate the choice you made cause nothing good has ever come out of cheap building materials and furniture. The cost of renovation and repairs is nothing to write home about. Take emilinks for instance, their furniture are beautiful, durable and right now very affordable considering the fact that they are giving discounts on all their products. Take advantage of this great offer and not only will u get value for your money, you’ll have peace of mind.

    Its true that the consequences of substandard materials are too numerous and if we all say no to substandard materials, there will be a fall in the market of substandard materials.
    But for effective and sustained monitoring of substandard building materials since life is involved, I strongly suggest that, the Federal Government should set up a regulatory body that will have offices at state and local government levels, to eradicate stores and companies that deals on substandard building materials.
    This will be the best and most effective approach!

    I lost my father when I was three, and I was adopted and raised by his best friend, Alhaji Tanko. Alhaja Tanko was an astute businessman and a landlord. He had business acumen but he sometimes took decisions that proved unwise. One of such decisions landed him in trouble. It all started when a multinational company, set up a branch in my state, very close to my residence, and recruited workers from different parts of the state. The influx of workers led to a high demand for rented apartments. All the rooms in Alhaji Tanko’s two-storey building, strongly built and fitted with quality products, were rented out and the demand kept increasing. So, he thought it wise to build another two-storey building. His desire to make quick money, while spending less, clouded his sense of reasoning, and he went for low-grade building materials and imitations. He forgot that he couldn’t have his cake and eat it. Construction started and in a twinkling of an eye, work was completed and new tenants moved in. Alhaji Tanko made a lot of money and in his greed, he always told us how much he regretted spending money on quality building materials in the past, when he could’ve gone for imitations and saved cost. Everything seemed ok until one fateful day, the new building just collapsed. We heard cries for help coming from the rubble but there was nothing we could do. Blood trickled everywhere. We were petrified. All we could do was pray while we waited for rescuers. Everbody in the building died except for two men who suffered life-threatening injuries. They got well eventually, but they are still deformed. Unsurprisingly, the other two-storey building that was built with high-grade materials and fitted with quality products, stood firm like the rock of Gibraltar. Alhaji Tanko was arrested, arraigned, found guilty and given a lengthy jail term. The last time I visited him in jail, he was contrite and he said to me, ” if I could turn back the hands of time, I would do the right thing. I am the architect of my downfall. Buying substandard building materials will always seem like a smart move, but the consequences would come knocking sooner or later. While some people purchase substandard products out of ignorance, others like me, do it to save cost. Emilinks is everywhere now. Ignorance won’t be an excuse anymore. Now, listen carefully, whatever you do in life, always be mindful of this adage: ‘better soup na money kill am’, it will save you a lot of trouble”.

    Looking at my school building, the thought of collapse secondary and primary schools scares me a lot, Before the renovations kicked in during Gov. Fasholas tenure I literally do pray when entering any dilapidated structures in my school, the cafeteria was nothing to write about despite the wall been consumed with smokes and crack all over the wall, we had to get there before having any meal.
    Most times I had to bring my meal from home just to avoid the cafeteria. We dare not go there whenever it’s raining, our cafeteria suddenly becomes a pool. I was never rest assured by a material used for the buildings not in case of universities it sounds so rare seeing a collapse classroom or hostel. During my SSCE our invigilators had to call in the ministry of education just visit the school and see the condition of we student.

    The emphasis laid then was all about using good and quality materials for building any structure, ours then was the alternative. #Emilnks #Bellanaija #Day28,#mydoorstory

    Early this year one Thursday evening like that, I sat down lost in my thoughts.
    then suddenly I jumped on my feet out of fear, gosh! It was my friend Razaq whom I visited that tapped me on the shoulder.

    ‘’Guy what are you thinking of?’’ He said

    ‘Guy I have to pack into my new apartment in few weeks time, since I could not afford a very good apartment I have to manage that one I told you about, the one near that fuel station, Guy that house is leaking badly, With the way things are now, i may have to pay for 1 year, I don’t have much to get a better apartment. I explained to my friend Rasaq.

    “O boy, in this raining season, that is the last thing you need, Why not go for a much better and affordable apartment, there is one across that street after that mai suya, their building materials are of #Emilinks brand just like my own they are affordable, durable and comfortable to stay in’’ he said

    The next day he took me there, and to my surprise, it was just the way he described it, We had to contact the agent immediately and I paid for 1 ½ years.
    Wow, the house is just my dream house.

    I have no more fears of having to sleep under a leaking roof.
    Patronize EMILINKS products, e.g. Kitchen set, Doors, Chairs etc and you will be glad you did

    One fateful evening, as I was strolling through my neighbourhood, taking the sugar cane I just bought.

    I heard people shouting “bring water bring water”
    It was two shops that were engulfed in flames.

    Without hesitation, I gave a helping hand, and in no time we were able to put the fire out even before the fire fighters could arrive.

    To our surprise one of the shop was not affected as we thought, you know why?

    Because the building was made of Quality Building Materials, not just that they were also furnished with Emilinks products.

    With that experience, my advice to Landlords and Landladies, when building your houses, shops, do so with quality materials. What is worth doing, is worth doing well.

    The difference will always be clear.

    Everytime i remember this experience, it brings tears to my eyes. I can’t stop crying. Some few weeks back i and my best friend tunde went home after rehearsals.Tunde lives next to my house away from mine,this fateful day rain fell and it was heavy as usual everyone hid in their houses, little did he know he was hiding in the shadows of death,suddenly i heard a loud noise gbam,was that a bomb, everyone rushed out to see what happened.lo and behold,tunde’s house had collapsed.I was shocked,i almost ran mad.people shouted as everyone ran towards the house,no one even cared about the rain again.4 people died that day including tunde and his mum.It was a big loss to the community,only his dad and younger sister survived.Their wicked landlord used substandard materials to build the house, just to save cost and it cost 4 people’s lives,it was not worth it at all.When he was building the house, the contractor warned him to use quality, but he did not bulge because he wanted to save money.My family was lucky we built our house with standard and quality materials.we used #emilinks.Part of the building collapsed on our own house but it did not affect it,because #emilinks got us covered
    A lot of people tend to compromise when it comes to building houses, they just mix the cement wrongly and use poor materials.Organisations in charge of housing and standard practises should take note.#emilinks has taken a stand to use quality, its time others did same.This will reduce the incidence of collapse, domestic accidents, theft, poor hygiene and so many other things.We all need to work together and fight substandard materials to ensure our safety because we never can tell when the worst will happen. But with quality materials such as #emilinks you are sure you and your family are safe and secure.
    People that build houses should consider the following:-
    1) Use quality materials
    2) mix cement at the right proportion
    3) Do a good foundation
    4) Don’t patch electrical appliances
    5) Fix the roof according to standard operations.
    #emilinks is a global maufacturer of world class finishings and furnishings such as beds, shelves, roofs, doors etc. Because i choose to be safe, sound and secure, i choose #emilinks.

    No matter how life threats you, Never say yes to anything that can endanger your life. You can safe guard your life today by erecting a building with a standard materials and furniture because, any building erected using a substandard materials and furnished with an undefined furniture, is a risk to Life. Just take for an example, a building built with substandard product can easily collapse and kill people inside of it. Secondly, a building furnished with a substandard wardrobe and hanged wrongly can fell down and kill either a baby or grown up person below it, likewise a chair that that is not well made can easily broke when someone sat on it, and get injured. A door too, that is not hanged properly can fall and wound someone. So as you can see, what is bad is bad.
    Say no to substandard materials and furniture, and save a live today. If it happens to be that you are confuse and you don’t know where to get your well defined furniture, I suggest you pay emilinks a visit today and give it a try, then you will notice the difference between emilinks product and every other products. #emilinks #MyDoorStory.

    They say “if knowledge is expensive,try ignorance”. Ignorance led my former neighbour back to his humble beginnings. Ohh! Hw Mr. Kofo – my neighbour loved QUANTITY and he doesn’t care about QUALITY things unlike his friend Mr.Wale who wouldn’t go anything less than QUALITY . After both friend’s worked for d government for so many, they retired and decided to use their entitlement to build a house.Been close friends, they decided to build in d same vicinity,they used the same building style but the difference was the QUALITY of the building materials. Eventually,they completed their houses and both moved in.
    As time went by,Mr kofo started experiencing problems ranging from leaking roofs, termites infestations, cracked walls to mention a few.Unlike Mr. Wale who was enjoying his money’s worth because he patronized QUALITY materials especially the wood aspect. Mr.Wale used #Emilinks wood for his roof frame and was protected from leaking roof and also used #Emilinks termites-proof doors,Kitchen cabinets and wardrobes and so free from termites infestations. Unfortunately for Mr.Kofo he had to sell d house cost the cost of repairing was becoming unbearable.
    So get QUALITY building materials, get #Emilinks furniture and get Peace of Mind.

    That day was indeed a happy day.My uncles house that he has been building for about 3 years has finally been completed.The house was indeed beautiful, the beautiful Emilinks doors around it will make you want to enter and never exit. Each rooms had It’s own Emilinks wardrobe.The kitchen itself was like a Fortress on its own. New Emilinks furnitures were all around..I thought I was in heaven and wished to stay in it forever. My uncle must have spent a fortune of money, thinking and hardwork into this. Good building materials make up a good buildings. Patronize Emilinks now!!!!

    That night everyone went to bed sad. My dad had earlier received a call that his building collapsed suddenly.The next morning we all went to the building site and saw it in ruins. An investigation was carried out and it turned out that the building collapsed as a result of poor building materials. My dad felt heart broken and betrayed because he had already given the contractor the amount of money needed to buy good equipment and the contract bought cheap poor ones instead. The contractor was arrested for fraud. But my dad also thanked God anyway because no life was lost. When building, always make sure to get the best materials because bad buildings may collapse and kill people. #MyDoorStory #Emilinks‎

    When growing up, there was this beautiful building that was in my neighborhood.It has been there for a very long time without collapsing or getting old. I had always wondered how the building managed to remain that way. Out of curiosity I approached the owner. He laughed so hard and answered me with just a few words”i always go for the best”.He told me that his secret was that he made sure he got the best materials to build his house. Using good materials in building houses is just the best way to build your house. With Emilinks you house is on the go!!!!

Rats had taken over everything in our house.. They ate almost everything, foodstuffs, pepper, fish everything in the house including Maggi. My mum’s wrappers has been destroyed by rats. I was pissed off because termites were feasting on my clothes.My dad was so angry,he saw nO reason why newly built house will be having wide holes around the walls. I too wondered how a house we just moved in two months ago will be cracking.It was a tragedy for the family.My dad had been dupped, he was supplied fake materials When he was building our house. We had no option but to park out before the house collapses.A house made of poor equipments never lasts long and it also dangerous. Get wise now, Use Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Emilinks ‎‎

    DAY 28
    In all we do, there is the need to incorporate that mark of distinction and quality and this extends to buildings also. I had a
    first-hand experience recently of the importance of quality building
    materials. I recently got my dream job and had to move from my
    previous place of abode. I was so excited about the opportunity and
    one week to resumption, I had washed, ironed my outfit and neatly
    folded same in the wardrobe. On the long awaited day, I woke up bright
    and early and prepared for work. I brought out my treasured black suit
    and noticed dust-like particles from wood termites located in the
    wardrobe on it. The more I tried to brush it off, the more it spread.
    I had to find a replacement outfit and trust NEPA, there was no
    electricity to iron it out. What a way to make a first impression on
    my first day at my dream job!

    As I hurried out of the house, another battle ensued. Could the day
    get any worse? The door refused to open. I had been informed that the
    lock was bad and depending on its mood, it would take some degree of
    expertise to open it. I spent another fifteen minutes trying to get
    the door to open before a co-tenant came to my rescue and opened it
    from outside. By this time, I was already disoriented and sweaty,
    wondering if I could still make it to work in good time and look
    presentable. I was lucky to get a ride from the said neighbour and
    made it to the office just on time.

    As I reviewed the day later in the evening, I reflected on how the use
    of sub-standard materials in the house had almost cost me my dream
    job. Emilinks standard wardrobes and doors would have made all the
    difference. I would have arrived at my new office in my favourite
    outfit and in good time on my first day of work if only Emilinks had
    been the vendor of choice in the purchase of quality and long lasting
    materials. I made sure that I informed all my friends and family of
    the need to invest in durable and superior materials such as doors and
    wardrobes from the brand synonymous with excellence which is
    #Emilinks. And this is #MyDoorStory.

    If there’s one thing I love going to the airport for apart from traveling is it’s Building. It is a direct replica of my uncle’s house. The structures are outstanding,unique,innovative and exquisite. As you can see from the picture the building is made of glass.That alone protects the outsiders from the outside view.There was this heavy storm that occurred. It was so heavy that people including traders, passers bye, drivers etc had to find refuge in the building till the storm went down.A good building is strong and durable.Same goes for my uncles house, it’s like the garden of Eden. What crowns it all up are the beautiful Emilinks doors. Emilinks products always makes me to go and build a house alone. Emilinks is just the best#MyDoorStory #Emilinks‎‎‎

    There is this saying that says “Anything that’s worth doing is worth doing well”I guess my uncle put that into consideration when building his house.My uncle’s house is like heaven on Earth.When he was building it he ordered for the best quality doors from Emilinks, wardrobe, kitchen cabinet,bed frames etc all from Emilinks.He also called the best architects. Hard work really pays. Me and my siblings always run down to his house whenever we are putting on a good attire in order to have a nice snap shot.The house is so solid that I think it will stay beautiful forever. A good house is beautiful, solid and safe.The last touch to a good house is an Emilinks door

    Am an Architecture student of federal polytechnic Nekede,I was recently one of the lucky students selected to take part in the construction of a 500 capacity lecture hall with offices. As an Architecture student of the school, most of us took part in its construction as means of enhancing our practical knowledge. During the construction, the engineer in charge made sure all the materials used where of standard,the rector had warned before the construction that she won’t tolerate the use of substandard materials due to the horrors she witnessed in previous buildings around the school. Those buildings constructed with inferior materials never last more than three years and roofs will start pealing off,the doors damaged,the interior finishing all damaged and before 5 years the building is almost useless. So,on this building a trusted engineer was awarded the contract and he made sure all the materials used for dis building where of standard and good quality. It was really during this building that I and my fellow students heard of the emilinks brand. On one occasion, the engineer took me and one other student to Aba where he buys materials, all the doors and office furniturs he ordered where all emilinks brands,out of curiosity I asked him,sir,why are all the doors and furnitures of one brand? He replied,because emilinks have proved to be a trustworthy name in the building industry. He promptly told us that with emilinks,your building is safe guaranteed. And he has been using the brand in all his constructions since he found emilinks. Its been more than six months since the construction was completed and I went the just last week to confirm the engineer’s testimony and he is very right. Every part of that building, the doors,interiors and furnitures are all intact. Still new as if they where installed yesterday. Am convinced that this building is so beautiful and strong because it was touched by emilinks. Day28 #emilinks #mydoorstory

    What use is beauty without comfort and durability? In the past,our society has been affected by substandard building materials, a wise man once told me that a city is only as beautiful as its buildings but today I tell u,a city is only as strong as its buildings. Let’s take for instance the early century when when a city only depend on the strength of its walls for its defence. The stronger the walls,the stronger and safer the city and its inhabitants. These walls are so strong only because of standard and quality materials used for its construction. In our society today,substandard building materials have led to the collapse of many buildings. In a society where the common believe is that only the rich can afford standard building materials, the CEO emilinks,with his famous “operation eradicate substandard building materials”,has helped in all most extinction of substandard materials from our markets,and he also made materials such as doors,wardrobes, furniture and all sorts of finishes very affordable for everyone. In his magnanimity,he slashed the prices of this materials so all can enjoy comfort, strength, beauty and durability. Emilinks has made the dream of owning a comfortable and durable homes by average Nigerians possible. God bless emilinks. God bless Nigeria. Day 27 #emilinks #mydoorstory

    As an Architectural student I will say that the functionality and efficiency of a building rest upon the various materials materials and components that make up a building and also the life span of a building also depends on quality of various building materials..

    Choose QUALITY over QUANTITY if you want to live a happy and safe life in your home.

    SHELTER is a very essential and crucial basic needs of man and that’s why all effort must be made in other to have peace of mind in one’s home and that is why #EMILINKS is there for everyone that prefer quality over quantity.

    √ For strong and durable doors EMILINKS says YES
    √For befitting furnitures EMILINKS says YES
    √In terms of world-class finishing and furnishing products such as doors, beds, kitchens, dining sets, wardrobes and shelves for homes, offices, hotels, royal palaces, presidential lodge, honeymoon suites and luxury villas. EMILINKS stays the Very Best.

    No I remembered then when the present minister of commerce Senator Chris Ngige was the Anambra state governor, then there was a renovation of some plaza , as work was on going , that is they were upgrading the plaza in OCHANJA MARKET BESIDE THE ROAD ZIK AVENUE ROAD to a story building, though the decking as been done far back it was still strong but the new setting of block sets over it which has gotten to roofing level some part already roofed but later collapsed all of a sudden all because of a selfish interest with the use of inferior materials and it happened early in the morning when people were just arriving, the havoc will have been times 7 of what was recorded then, I manage to escape purposely because I was looking up to it saying in my mind that by the time they will finish it more shops will be available, not knowing it is what will cause pain to people within,
    But some buildings today too were still built with inferior materials. Why because some marketers of building materials will present inferior ones as superior or standard materials all because of quick wealth, #Emilinks stands out best whenever you intend building or doing finishing and furnishes always make #Emilinks your choice because you won’t have a dime to regret over whatever you purchase from them. am I living witness to this fact that they only deal with standard materials my dad friend called #Emilinks home of superiors and standards when it comes to finishings and furnishings. One thing I know is people could avoid inferior materials the importers or producers will have no option than to stop making it available.

In future is to give your client the best quality materials in the market which you can’t get elsewhere but “only” in EMILINKSNG whom will supply you with all kind of powerful and affordable latest and superior designs of building materials ranging from doors,roofs,gates,wardrobes, beds,name them at a friendly price which meets the text of your client at all time, they have being my secret for years, never give a substandard material to your client no matter what and note that “it looks like EMILINKS is not EMILINKS, EMILINKS IS JUST EMILINKS that’s all.

    On the eve of my birthday last year, i received an sms from my mum. I was even thinking it was a pre-birthday wish or an alert (for my day), but got shocked when it was a notification that my elder sibling’s just newly built a storeyed building collapsed. I quickly rang my mother; she bitterly stated that upon all agreements reached with the contractor, he opted not buying the fittings/fixtures from #Emilinks and equally used sub-standard building materials.

    That was strange, thus i quickly got the site and tearfully confimed the worrisome scene. My brother equally arrived from Lagos and we summoned the contractor who on interrogation confessed channeling the funds provided to sort a bank’s bad loan and opting using less quality building materials and not even going for the #Emilinks brand (when he was even advised to do so). He was charged to court and jailed.

    Based on lessons learned on both parties, much emphasis should be placed on the use of #Emilinks and quality/standard building materials. Emilinks is an affordable, quality and good brand – doors, windows, kitchen wares etc.

    Few years ago I lost a cousin due to the collapse of a building on him and his friends, They had gone into town to get lunch in a regular joint of theirs, according to eye witnesses the building had been there one minute and the next it had suddenly collapsed, the only indication being a loud noise, the building a one storey complex that housed various shops and a resturant had stood for only two years had before sudden collapse taking about 20 lives and leaving a lot others seriously injured, there had also been property damage estimated to about 3 million worth in naira, Later investigations showed that the blocks used for the building had been mixed with too much sand which had eventually worn out leading to the building’s collapse.This could have been avoided if standard blocks had been layed, the death of innocent citizens like my cousin and his friends could have been avoided.
    Using substandard materials for building is a menace that the society can live without, it’s always better to build with good quality materials to ensure the safety of future tenants and the public in general and also your own life in cases of private residence, it is not enough to build a house, how safe is the house? , can it withstand long periods of heavy rainfall and sunshine? Get good quality materials for building and have peace of mind even in storms.Let’s join emilinks in promoting the use of safe quality materials and make the society a better and safe place

    The influx of substandard materials into the market is worrisome.it seems to have saturated the market. The first source of concern for every builder should be material quality and sustainability.it is appalling and thought provoking how a newly built structure undergoes repair and maintenance only few weeks after being built. Buildings are meant to be long term investments however these days caution has been thrown to the wind with the use of substandard materials which do not sustain buildings.Houses that were built back in the day cannot be compared with what you see these days because materials used then were of high quality.what is more disturbing is the fact that even when a builder decides to use high quality materials he is still short changed.
    It is therefore advisable to hand over your project to a contractor that is trustworthy and also carry out proper research before going to the market because there is only a thin line between fakes and original.
    The use of substandard materials are partly and in some cases wholly responsible for the high incident of building collapse in the country.it can also lead to various cases of structural deformation some buildings experience within a short period of time like cracked walls,leaking roofs and susceptibility to flooding.
    Invariably the use of substandard materials cannot lead to the sustainability of any building,such buildings will likely not be standing in years to come.
    Standard building materials help sustain your building for a lifetime and improves the value of your building.Don’t just build to save cost, build to make your
    a worthy investment.

    While renovating our village house, we bought steel doors due to the reoccurring cases of burglary in our area. The doors were weird looking and old fashioned and during Christmas, all our visitors commented on the doors, saying that it spoilt the beauty of the house. My father then explained to them that it was due to the security condition of our area that made them necessary as the our house had been broken into two times and valuable items stolen. The doors being heavy metal made a lot of clanging noises and it was very embarrassing. After much persuasion from us, my father consulted his friend who was a dealer on doors and was introduced to emilink doors. He brought home a sample and after testing it, we readily accepted it because it was very strong yet fashionable. We were even introduced to the emilink windows and didn’t hesitate in buying and installing it. Then last Christmas, during the fundraising ceremony for a new parish house, my father pledged to supply free, all the furniture to be used in the house and as you can guess, he ordered only emilink products because we have tested it for years and it can be trusted.

    Help! Help! Help! That was what we all heard as the building collapsed, there was dust everywhere as people and workers ran for their lives. A complex was under construction, And the construction site provided a means of survival for the young boys and women that went there to work, the pay was high so it attracted all sort of people both the under graduate and the unemployed, but little did they know the dangerous risk they placed their lives under.
    On the 23rd of March last year, six people died and many others gravely injured as a building collapsed in the heart of Jos the plateau state capital, after the incident investigation was carried out and it was gathered that the cause of the damage was as a result of using substandard materials by the contractor, though legal action was taken against him, it didn’t still bring back the innocent lives that were lost simply because they went there to seek their daily bread, the fight against the usage of substandard materials to build cannot be overemphasized as the result is always devastating, the lives that are lost cannot be compared to the extra money the contractors try to gain. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day 28

    When it comes to property products, most of us are interested in the completed building than being involved in the time consuming construction process itself.we don’t realise the importance of choosing quality building materials until an unwanted incident happens. The collapse of a four storey building dat occurred a few days ago in maitama Abuja is one example of not building with the right quality materials according to a particular area or terrain. Our homes are the place where we sometimes find to our disappointment and expense that poor construction materials do not meet expectations. Subsequently, many Nigerians have lost their lives and properties due to the poor materials used in the construction of their homes.”I am disappointed with the contractor because only two years after the construction of my house was completed, there are several cracks on the wall,with the position of the wall a bit slanted” says a father of two who prefers to remain anonymous..another illustration is about a man named Benson ovie who is often engaged in construction projects, once noticed that the roof of a newly built concrete balcony slanted inwards because the selected concrete iron building structures were irresponsibly replaced with low quality materials. In conclusion, we can see that using the right quality building materials or components is very important for the sake of the duration of a building even though they might cost more compared to second or third class materials.its better to spend more money by choosing the right building materials that are costlier compared to choosing cheaper ones which is more risky.Today, their are many building materials in a range of models and prices in the market. A rule of thumb in choosing quality building materials is choosing EMILINKS!
    Emilinks, guaranteed life saver!

    Few years ago I lost a cousin due to the collapse of a building on him and his friends, They had gone into town to get lunch in a regular joint of theirs, according to eye witnesses the building had been there one minute and the next it had suddenly collapsed, the only indication being a loud noise, the building a one storey complex that housed various shops and a restaurant had stood for only two years had before sudden collapse taking about 20 lives and leaving a lot others seriously injured, there had also been property damage estimated to about 3 million worth in naira, Later investigations showed that the blocks used for the building had been mixed with too much sand which had eventually worn out leading to the building’s collapse. This could have been avoided if standard blocks had been laid, the death of innocent citizens like my cousin and his friends could have been avoided.
    Using substandard materials for building is a menace that the society can live without, it’s always better to build with good quality materials to ensure the safety of future tenants and the public in general and also your own life in cases of private residence, it is not enough to build a house, how safe is the house? , can it withstand long periods of heavy rainfall and sunshine? Get good quality materials for building and have peace of mind even in storms. Let’s join EMILINKS in promoting the use of safe quality materials and make the society a better and safe place. #DAY28 #EMILINKS #MYDOORSTORY

    A mistake they say can hunt you for the rest of your life and affect your children, well that might be the case of my millionaire uncle who lost his daughter last night.His five storey building home is barely 2years old. , I remember when that house was under construction how my uncle couldn’t wait for its completion and did everything in his power to make it swift including buying all sort of substandard materials and didn’t even know they were substandard cause of his rush , he got his wish anyway the house was completed in no time. Just last year that’s about 5months since building was completed the substandard materials began showing manifest; doors feel off , window too even the ceiling began leaking , so it was one renovation or another, sadly just last night one of the doors fell on his cute 5year old daughter killing her instantly, its really sad because the little girl is merely a victim of her fathers mistake.Anyway I got to know of emilinks and heard there materials are quality itself and i am recommending it for my uncle after his mourning .one lesson I learnt from this is never to stoop lower than quality , you might just be saving lives even that of your kids.

    I heard the high-pitched and ebulient laugh that was unmistakably my father’s. Our neighbors must have been curious about the cause of the noise. We were having a small celebration. My dad had won a major construction contract. He was selected because he was known for using standard building materials for any job. His recommendation came from a satisfied client who had suffered losses in the hands of other builders notorious for using substandard building materials.
    But my father had maintained a good reputation in the building industry because he never compromised on quality. And whenever he recommended the Emilinks brand to his clients, they took his word for it. He believes every finished project should be a haven not a death trap.
    If safety becomes every builders watch word, the rate at which buildings collapse will reduce significantly.

    I was returning from school one day with my friend nneka when suddenly it started raining, ‘Jesus’ was what she screamed before she started running, the way she screamed and started running got me scared and I had no choice but to follow, she ran straight home wiith me behind her, when we entered her house,she went straight to the kitchen and I followed by the time we got there the whole place was flooded, immediately we began to raise things up from the wet floor but it was too late for some items like the garri and flour that were already soaked with water, it was later she explained to me amidst tears that they had a leaking roof that always got their kitchen wet so each time they were going out they would put a large drum incase it rained so the water would fall inside it but she had forgotten to do so that morning, I asked her why they hadn’t fixed the roof, she said they had on several occasions but it still leaked, I told her that the problem was the quality of roofs they usually bought that the next time they should check the quality before they buy it. In this economy imagine loosing a half bag of garri and flour because of substandard materials, at least we thank God the house didn’t collapse. When a house is built with quality materials ,it serves you well and you’ll live comfortably with peace of mind in it.

    In 2008 when my uncle decided to build his own house, we were all happy as it is always a good feeling to leave a rented house and be your own landlord, He didn’t know much about building so he hired a contractor, unfortunately for him the contractor was fraudulent, eight months into the construction a tragedy happened, half of the building collapsed, it was quite shocking and new to him, I didn’t imaging that a building can just collapse even before being completed, when he carried out his investigations It was discovered that most of the materials the contractor used were half their original price as he was secretly building another house, I.e he tried to build two houses with the amount given to him for one, we thank God no one was hurt, but it affected my uncle financially as he had to start from the scratch, in building a house avoid using substandard materials, avoid trying to force smaller materials to hold heavier weight, when building a duplex avoid over concentration of cement as you would not notice the sign of crack to warn against any collapse. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day 28

    My dad is a building contractor and as the first son of the family, whenever he has a building project, I go with him to the site.My dad is known for been a man of principles and this he took into his job.He goes for the best when constructing a building. From the woods to the blocks to the mixture of the sand and cement(not using more SAND than the CEMENT to keep money in his pocket).There are a whole lot of gifts from his clients in the house showing appreciation for a work well done.The use of good building materials for the construction of a house cannot be overemphasized. The house remains for years,from generation to generation. Stories of collapsed buildings do not come from buildings that were built with quality materials but from those built with cheap materials.A house built with good materials feels like a safe haven and you are certain of protection when you have doors like EMILINKS in the house too even though we know God is the ultimate giver of protection. You want that house to be seen by your CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, GREAT GRANDCHILDREN then use quality building materials and some of these can be gotten from Emilinks.Thank you Emilinks.

    # MyDoorStory # Emilinks My dad built our house with
    the best building materials he could lay his hands on. He
    use the best wardrobes, quality cements and sands, the best
    doors, the best furniture, The best shelves. etc While he was
    building our house, his kinsmen were making jest of him,
    telling him he was using the money he should have used in
    building three houses to build only one house but that didn’t
    stop my dad from building his house with the best/ quality
    materials in the market. Eight years after building our house,
    there was flooding in my village that lasted for days. The
    flooding affected so many building in my village so badly
    that so many of the buildings started having cracks all over
    the wall while many of the buildings collapsed but as I am
    writing this, our house still dey kamkpe. In fact, our house is
    still standing very strong and still the most beautiful and
    strong house in my village to the envy of our villagers now
    and that is just because dad built our house with the best
    building materials from Emilinks. #Day28

    My uncle have been saving money all through his life, he is 62 now. He has been living on a very stringent budget. The only thing that took away his money was the bank. In fact, his wife left him mostly because of saving, saving money. They resorted to eating meat on the scale. Nobody wanted to go for holiday in my uncle’s house. When ever we ask my uncle what does the wants to do with the money he will say he wants to build a big house, he wants to be a landlord, build hostels. Sounds good right but it was costing him too much, even his wife. My uncle retired from service and decided that he has saved enough to start his building. Uncle got building, rushing to start being referred to as landlord. He however had major mistake, he didn’t know about Emilinks furniture. Too bad right. My uncle because of too much saving of money and living on a scale, thought that even building a house could be managed, being the kind of person he is even the contractor he hired was also a quack, he promised my uncle a beautiful building on a small budget. How on earth Biko! The contractor finished the building with minus sub-standard materials and painted it with colourful and beautiful paint. The paint gave the sub-standard building a boost. My uncle was very proud, but could the house stand? Tenants came on, paid for the house and uncle was now a landlord. But it took only a normal rainfall that fell half of the day to reveal that the contractor USED sub-standard materials to build, thank God most of the tenants were away at work, though unfortunately two people lost their lives, my uncle was back to zero, he couldn’t cry, talk, he felt like going mad, all my life just went away like that, oh, if only I knew about Emilinks, if only I used standard materials, my wife would love me again, I will still remain a landlord, the government seized the land, my uncle, well it is inexplicable. I feel for him though, the contractor met his end that time. Please its worth it, use standard materials, use Emilinks, to remain a house owner, a landlord, and a proud man, use Emilinks and be safe. Thanks Emilinks,also to Bella naija,

    We all know that houses built with quality materials cannot be compared with those built with inferior materials. These materials may be more expensive but they are worth it because they help build secure houses.You don’t get to see cracked walls,leaking roofs,windows eaten by termites and the rest.And most importantly Emilinks produces furniture that gives a house further protection. Their doors are the best one can possibly get.If you want that house to be seen by more generations to come, use quality materials like those of Emilinks and you won’t regret it.Thank you Emilinks.

    Everytime i remember this experience, it brings tears to my eyes. I can’t stop crying. Some few weeks back i and my best friend tunde went home after rehearsals.Tunde lives next to my house away from mine,this fateful day rain fell and it was heavy as usual everyone hid in their houses, little did he know he was hiding in the shadows of death,suddenly i heard a loud noise gbam,was that a bomb, everyone rushed out to see what happened.lo and behold,tunde’s house had collapsed.I was shocked,i almost ran mad.people shouted as everyone ran towards the house,no one even cared about the rain again.4 people died that day including tunde and his mum.It was a big loss to the community,only his dad and younger sister survived.Their wicked landlord used substandard materials to build the house, just to save cost and it cost 4 people’s lives,it was not worth it at all.When he was building the house, the contractor warned him to use quality, but he did not bulge because he wanted to save money.My family was lucky we built our house with standard and quality materials.we used #emilinks.Part of the building collapsed on our own house but it did not affect it,because #emilinks got us covered
    A lot of people tend to compromise when it comes to building houses, they just mix the cement wrongly and use poor materials.Organisations in charge of housing and standard practises should take note.#emilinks has taken a stand to use quality, its time others did same.
    This will reduce the incidence of collapse, domestic accidents, theft, poor hygiene and so many other things.We all need to work together and fight substandard materials to ensure our safety because we never can tell when the worst will happen. But with quality materials such as #emilinks you are sure you and your family are safe and secure.
    People that build houses should consider the following:-
    1) Use quality materials
    2) mix cement at the right proportion
    3) Do a good foundation
    4) Don’t patch electrical appliances
    5) Fix the roof according to standard operations.
    #emilinks is a global maufacturer of world class finishings and furnishings such as beds, shelves, roofs, doors etc. Because i choose to be safe, sound and secure, i choose #emilinks.

    I have this close friend of mine called Micheal. We grew up in the same street and attended the same primary and secondary school but he couldn’t to the university after our secondary education because of the death of his father who was the bread winner of the house. His mum was a petty trader, so she couldn’t see him through the university and that made him to go learn a trade. He was into electronics and was supposed to learn it for two years but ended up staying there for eight years because his boss refused to settle him after two years. When he was eventually settled, he rented a shop and used the money his boss settled him with plus the one well wishers and family members gave him. He had barely stayed in the shop for five months when I got the most shocking news of my life that Micheal’s shop had collapsed and everything in his shop destroyed. Not even a pin was brought out because everything was destroyed. We later learnt from the investigation carried out by the police that the engineer who handled the building project used substantial and inferior materials for the building and the landlord didn’t even know. Though the engineer was later arrested but the deed had already been done and I ended up learning so many things from that experience
    1, To build my house with quality materials no matter what it cost
    2, To create awareness, letting people know the implications of building a house with inferior materials
    3, Most importantly, to buy my quality building materials from professionals such as Emilinks who who wouldn’t deceive me by giving me substantial materials in the name of quality materials. #MyDoorStory #Emilinks #Day28

    Making reference to culture, most building patterns, design and architectural works denotes some part of a community’s culture.. Using quality materials help to make that building last long thereby preserving the culture in some way and passing it to the next generations

    However, so many people in our society today have had regrets in erecting a structure with substandard materials while some are happy for buying quality and affordable materials from emilinks
    A building erected with quality materials are long lasting unlike buildings erected with substandard material. This remind me of the twin brothers (ODION AND AKHERE) who were determined to have their own houses, the elder twin (Odion) driven by jealousy never wanted his younger brother(Akhere) to achieve this goal before him, he bought substandard materials with the little money he had after purchasing the land. Akhere on the other hand took his time to make preparations consulting EMILINK on types of doors and funiture to be used on his house. In due time both completed their houses. on the day of the house opening odion building collapsed due to substandard material used.. killing some of his guest and his first son Osas. this event did not only bring him losts but was a disaster to the community at large. Till today Odion regrets using substandard materials in building his house and choose to consult emilinks for his finishing and furnishing products like beds, doors, kitchen, dininng sets wardrope etc.

    December 21,2015 is a day I can never forget in my life…I remembered the way I cried day and night due to the loss of my best friend who died in the process of making money to pay his registration fees for his 3rd year in school by involving in the construction our councillors new house in my area..
    It was found out that the contractor who was in charge of the project went for the cheapest and substandard building materials which led to the collapse of the building and killed 3 workers including my friend at the construction site..If only the contractor had gone for Emilinks,my friend would have been alive to graduate with me…
    The contractor was summoned to face the wrath of the law because of his selfish interest.. After 2 months, a new contractor who happens to be my father’s business partner was employed to start the work from scratch.. Based on my knowledge about Emilinks and to their achievement over the years in making standard building materials, I had to meet my dad’s friend in person and told him that in order not to experience disaster or another loss of life,he has to get standard and durable building materials for his project from Emilinks which has proven to be the best among the rest…
    My dad’s friend who was the contractor followed my advice without any atom of doubt and went for Emilinks and by God’s grace he was able to carry out the project with his team without difficulties and since then he has been getting multiple contracts and always thanking me for my contribution in making his career a success with Emilinks.. # Day 28#mydoorstory # Emilinks

    HOW CAN A BUILDING STAND FOR YEARS…IF YOU DONT BUILD THEM WITH QUALITY MATERIALS. A CALL FOR NIGERIANS TO ENTER INTO CORRESPONDENCE WITH EMILINKS NIGERIA LIMITED SO AS TO BUILD A LONG LASTING BUILDING WELL BUILT WITH THEIR QUALITY MATERIALS SO AS TO SOLVE AND ERADICATE BUILDING PROBLEMS IN NIGERIA
    Since independence the Nigerian government has desperately continued to make concerted effort in the area of quantitative (but not qualitative) supply of mass housing through huge budgetary and policy provisions but, surprisingly,the rate at which existing ones are collapsing calls for an urgent attention.The site of building collapse scattered across the length and breadth of Nigeria is quite alarming that it is unimaginable what effects it will have on the building industry and Nigeria economy as a whole.One could imagine what edifices these buildings would have been if only they were constructed accordingly. It has been reported that Nigeria, especially Lagos State has become the “world’s junk-yard” of collapsed buildings worth billions of Naira (Famoroti, 2005). It is quite unimaginable that a county blessed with so great potentials in its construction industry can experience such magnitude of building collapse.

    CAUSES OF BUILDING COLLAPSE
    1.Natural occurrence:
    One of the major natural factors that result into building collapse is rainfall; others may include temperature, pressure, etc.
    2.Quality management:
    The need for stringent quality control in materia lutilization within the construction industry in Nigeria today cannot be over emphasized .The neglect of quality control in the construction industry has resulted in many defective and ugly looking buildings and the rise in number of collapse buildings in the past years
    3.Material and Testing Variability:
    This has to do with the difficulties that contractors experience in consistently obtaining and/or producing good quality materials as well as the ability of the client’s representative to understand the correct control values or make the necessary computation in the field.
    4.Contractors’ Variability:
    This is the difficulty a client or his representative experiences on large-scale projects in having all the contractors produce uniform standards of materials and workmanship. Different contractors have their different means of production in terms of method of construction,technology involved, etc.
    5.Poorly Skilled Workmen:
    This sometimes in conjunction with contractors’ variability is one of the reasons behind the incidents of building collapse in Nigeria. The level of competencies of different categories of labour in Nigerian building industry(though varies from one city and contractor to another), through investigation, is found to be reducing day after day. It has been noted that even the workmen that went through apprenticeship training are no better than their master.

    Consequences of building collapse
    Apart from lost of lives (mostly innocent citizens), many other people has been rendered permanent disable in one form form or the other as a result of increasing rate of building collapse in the country.
    2.Economic loss as a result of this incidence is immeasurable in that many have been rendered homeless with loss of countless properties.
    More so, various site of building collapse scattered across the length and breadth of Nigeria is making the environment unhealthy as such collapsed buildings has become hidden houses for robbers, touts, etc. a very good example is that of NIDB building located in the heart of commercial area of Lagos state in Nigeria. Dangerous animals like snake have also made such buildings their place of abode, which is a danger and threat to the people living within the vicinity of the environment.

    SOLUTION TO THIS MENACE
    1.working with able and adequate workmen with skilled man power and the technical know-how
    2. by building with quality materials as such from emilinks quality products ranging from their quality and durable doors.

    In conclusion,build your house with quality materials to have eternal rest of mind. Even the bible stated it clearly that a wise man builds his house on the rock( emilinks quality materials) while the fool builds his house on the sandy soil and when rain(natural occurrence ) comes it will flush it away.
    Nigerians this is a call a must one for all to obey.

    Help!!! Help!!!. I thought I thought it was a dream and snuggled back into my duvet. HELP PLEASE HELP ME!!!! His time I jolted out of my bed,it wasn’t a dream, someone was actuallying scream ing for help. I bolted out of the room to find out where the noise was coming from. Lo and behold it was the house next door,it was crumbling to the floor and someone was stuck inside.peoepl where gathered and no one was making any attempt to save the last stuckk in the bulding. I flung into action and when people saw me making an attempt to help the last, they joined in. Luckily we brought her out of the crumbles without any serious injuries. I finally asked what happened and she told me that while she was sleeping, she heard a sound but wasn’t sure where it was from and the next thing she knew she knew everywhere went dark and she was stuck. Looking back at the house i used to admire, I thought to myself why did corners trying to build a house by using substandard materials and puting lives at risk. From that day I knew that when I eventually get the money to bulid a house, I now know the dos and don’t and why i should use standard bulding materials like emilinks.#day28 #mydoorstory #Emilinks

    Apart from lost of lives (mostly innocent citizens), many other people has been rendered permanent disable in one form form or the other as a result of increasing rate of building collapse in the country.
    2. Economic loss as a result of this incidence is immeasurable in that many have been rendered homeless with loss of countless properties.
    More so, various site of building collapse scattered across the length and breadth of Nigeria is making the environment unhealthy as such collapsed buildings has become hidden houses for robbers, touts, etc. a very good example is that of NIDB building located in the heart of commercial area of Lagos state in Nigeria. Dangerous animals like snake have also made such buildings their place of abode, which is a danger and threat to the people living within the vicinity of the environment.

    SOLUTION TO THIS MENACE
    1.working with able and adequate workmen with skilled man power and the technical know-how
    2. by building with quality materials as such from emilinks quality products ranging from their quality and durable doors.

    In conclusion,build your house with quality materials to have eternal rest of mind. Even the bible stated it clearly that a wise man builds his house on the rock( emilinks quality materials) while the fool builds his house on the sandy soil and when rain(natural occurrence ) comes it will flush it away.
    Nigerians this is a call a must one for all to obey.

    What is worth building is worth building well. We live in a rented building at Greenfield Estate and with all honesty, it is not just a beautiful house, the Owner of the house built a home. Let me start with the gigantic strong gates that you can’t access anyhow and even when you do, the Strong and Reliable Emilinks Door that provides Personal Security against intruders as humans and Pest. The well Fitting Emilinks Wardrobe that organises my clothing, which saves me time as I always have what to wear at my convenience, the hard concrete wall the Carpenter complained of when he was fixing the curtains, the kitchen cupboards etc. He chose to build with quality and we have never called him for a repair.
    He chose to build with only Quality materials which would make a home safe and secure come rain come shine.

A CALL FOR NIGERIANS TO ENTER INTO CORRESPONDENCE WITH EMILINKS NIGERIA LIMITED SO AS TO BUILD A LONG LASTING BUILDING WELL BUILT WITH THEIR QUALITY MATERIALS SO AS TO SOLVE AND ERADICATE BUILDING PROBLEMS IN NIGERIA Since independence the Nigerian government has desperately continued to make concerted effort in the area of quantitative (but not qualitative) supply of mass housing through huge budgetary and policy provisions but, surprisingly,the rate at which existing ones are collapsing calls for an urgent attention.The site of building collapse scattered across the length and breadth of Nigeria is quite alarming that it is unimaginable what effects it will have on the building industry and Nigeria economy as a whole.One could imagine what edifices these buildings would have been if only they were constructed accordingly. It has been reported that Nigeria, especially Lagos State has become the “world’s junk-yard” of collapsed buildings worth billions of Naira (Famoroti, 2005). It is quite unimaginable that a county blessed with so great potentials in its construction industry can experience such magnitude of building collapse. CAUSES OF BUILDING COLLAPSE

    ‘I thought he could handle the truth, i thought he loved me.’ She said as she wiped her eyes and blew her nose into her wrapper. If we were in a better mood, I’d tease her for doing such but I knew that was the wrong time.
    Would there ever be a right time again?
    Can my sister ever smile?
    I watched my sister become a shadow of herself each day after her husband threw her out of the house just after 6 months of marriage. She said she shared with him one fateful night about how she was raped, got pregnant and terminated it. The next day, he came with his mother and they both blamed her for not conceiving early enough because of the incident she shared.
    I remember the day she was raped, I was very little then. My sister, my dad and I were eating in the parlour, watching the network news when we heard a knock, it was our neighbour, Baba Temi. ‘Hold on’ I said as I left my food to open the door for him. It took me about five minutes to open the door because it wasn’t good. The landlord used substandard materials to build his house just because he wanted fast money. The tenants had complained and complained but
    he said we should move out if we can’t handle it.
    After hours of gisting with Baba Temi, he eventually left but my dad told me to leave the door open so my mum could come in without having to go through the stress of opening the door when she closes the shop. Unfortunately, the robbers came in before my mum. My sister got raped that night, and my dad was beaten blue black because he had no money with him. I was the only one spared because I was really young.
    Back to the present, I blame myself for not closing the door that night, I blame my greedy landlord and I curse those robbers for making my sister suffer.

    This was inspired by a true life story.

    Houses are in categories. Not all houses are the same. This is not a matter of size. It is a matter of quality. A house might be big but lacks the qualities that makes it a mansion and not all so called mansions has the right materials that makes it what it is. Anyone who thinks a house is a house irrespective of the quality materials has probably not heard about emilinks.

    Using substandard building materials is simply cruel and inhumane. We lose precious lives to shady and substandard structures daily. It really broke my heart when I witnessed first hand the devastating effect of haphazard constructions. A single mother of one, lived on the street just across ours. It was a Thursday. And it had only just finished raining, her four year old son was distracted by a cartoon showing on TV. It was a good sign; it gave her time to wash and tidy their apartment. When it was time to prepare their evening meal, she dashed out to the nearby evening to buy a few of the ingredients she would need. She left the door open and notified her neighbour of her absence. She usually didn’t spend time at the market. But in the few minutes that she was away, her son had already been buried under the debris that was once their home. Thunder had struck and made a crack on the wall. The building caved in to the elements. She was the only survivor and she couldn’t be consoled. It was truly a sad day.
    This issue must be tackled with all seriousness before we begin to be seen as a nation that places no value on human lives. Using quality and high standard building materials is beyond necessary. Safety should never be compromised for cost. All thanks to the Emilinks brand for initiating the pace for standard building materials.
    Certain things are more important than money.

    Thief oooo, thief oooo was the sound that woke me up from my siesta on a faithful Friday afternoon.
    Mrs Aduke has just returned from market and her children were away in school. she put down her goods and brought out the keys that opens the padlock to the front door. To her surprise, it was open, she thought to herself,”I am so sure i locked this door before i left this morning for the market or maybe these children are back from school”. As she got into her room,she put on the light and her room was almost empty with the mattress turned upside down; then it dawn on her that her house has been burgled. She tried opening other doors. it was of no use as all the locks were broken. Immediately she screamed “Am finished”. Of course the buglers really finished her. they left nothing. All she had left was the clothes she wore to the market. As people gathered, they noticed that the burglars came in through the ceiling at the back of the house and they left through the window by creating a space through the burglary proof with a metal object they found inside the house. Mrs Aduke had to mourn for weeks as if someone died. She was indoors for quite a long time until she was able to have at least two changes of clothes.What pained her most was that, she was just a tenant in the house. she had to suffer the consequences of used substandard materials in the house she lived. Tenants and house owners go for a house with quality materials for the safety of lives and properties. go for a house built with emilinks products and you can sleep with your two eyes closed.

    When I was younger, I had this phobia that the house I lived in was about to collapse because of the inferior quality of building materials used in erecting the structure.
    The ceiling was always leaking, while the door had almost fallen off its hinges.
    The algae that bred on the exterior wall of the building was caused by faulty connections of the pipe.
    That was back in the days when Lagos Landlords erected buildings without caring about the quality of materials used.

    The door was what scared my bones stiff. Imagine being a small kid, and a door that was far bigger than you was showing signs of caving in on your small head, would you not be scared of such door?
    Anytime I needed to use the door, I beckoned on my older ones to do the opening for me. Though most times, I had to weep and shed some tears before they looked my way.

    The door became my arch enemy. I hated having to go through that door.
    Imagine using a door that was made by a company, #EMILINKS who knew its onion, a company who prided itself for delivering quality doors, the phobia of door that had developed in me would have not had any breeding ground.

    To prevent such phobia from developing in my unborn kids, I will try to use a name I can trust, #EMILINKS

    It rained heavily last week Sunday that lots of people could not go out. Sincerely I enjoyed the weather reason being that it was on a Sunday and I rested and also had enough time to prepare for the week. But it was not a palatable Sunday for some families. While I was watching the television and sipping the hot tea, I heard a strange noise about 2pm.
    Help! Help!! Help!!! That was the noise we heard from the street. Out of anxiety, we rushed out to see what happened and behold we were all shocked and it was like a movie. There was a storm that made a building to collapse. Haaaaaaa, what could have happened was the question that everyone kept asking. No one could help. Families were trapped in the building which resulted to lost of lives and properties. It was so sad but that could have been avoided if only the house was built with Quality materials like Emilinks and not substandard materials.
    The moral lesson is that No matter how expensive quality building materials are, its safe to go for the best.

    I remembered vividly the nature of our former rented family house and can categorically state that “houses built with sub standard materials and less quality household fittings & fixtures, makes one’s home & entire household miserable”. From external (outside view probably because of the attractive painting, the structure really looks okay and I felt that must have lured my father to go ahead and rent. Meanwhile, we were the very first occupants, thus the worrisome experiences – I, my parents and siblings had, was uncalled for and incredible. The doors were really so bad and of low quality thus the edges were so rough & do tear our clothes. Do you know my Mum after preparing to get to the villa for the yearly August meeting , stepped out of her room, got caught by the rough edge of the bad door and her costly original ABADA badly torn. She wept so bitterly. The railing used for corridor rails, the metal door, kitchen sink and bath tubs all of a sudden became rusty and started disintegrating in particles. My parents warned and barred us from playing at the corridor for fear and risk of leaning against the railings, it breaks and we fall off. The fitted wardrobes were even homes to huge cockroaches, ants etc.
    Since virtually most fittings were of less quality, we encountered massive rodents’ visits (rats). We kept doing structure repairs every now and then. At a point the walls started getting water-drained and this poses risk as per structural problem as regards the quality of the roofing and materials. Though our rent was for couple of years but just after ten months, my dad smartly notified the house owner that he was to soon embark on a job related inter-city transfer thus we are likely to vacate shortly; he got back a year rent refund.
    When he took me along to examine the new house, I was just taking my time in examining the entire house and closets, fittings and fixture ( the doors, metal railings, tubs, wardrobe, already fitted kitchen wares), when the landlord stepped up to us and said “not to worry my people, those doors, wardrobes and virtually the entire fittings, fixtures and wares” were from #EMILINKS…He winks and stated I am a correct landlord. They were all looking superb and of great quality. We felt so satisfied, moved in and hard a very happy home experience and never encountered qualms at all over years. Equally mum stated that a former neighbour she met at the market equally told her that they’ve packed out from the former house.
    Till today including we including co-tenants do call the owner “oga correct landlord” and was just proudly because of his patronage of #EMILINKS brand and using quality materials in its entirely. This is our sixth year in the safe and enjoyable new house; my father’s personal house which is almost nearing completion is equally fully equipped with the #EMILINKS brand. He used to joke and tell us “who no like better thing joor…biko, I no want wahala (ie as per the very former house worrisome experiences) and I equally have in mind that in future once I’m fully established – #Emilinks all the way!!!

    Lives, many lives, would have been saved, many humans won’t be dead, decaying under the ground if quality building materials had been used to build those collapsed buildings.
    Imagine you are waiting at home, elated that your loved one would soon walk through the door, and give you a light kiss on your lips, but that expectation gets shattered when you find out that your loved one had died in a building wreckage.
    Imagine the sorrow, the tears, the feeling of despair that would engulf such a soul.
    That’s what a lot of humans have faced because those in charge of building a structure decided to opt for poor instruments instead of instruments produced by #EMILINKS.

    The dreams that have been shattered, the stars that have been buried, the loved ones that have left the land of the living because of carelessness on the part of contractors.

    Imagine how many geniuses have had their heads crushed when a building collapsed. Imagine how many unborn kids have perished with their mothers. Imagine how many talented musicians like Beethoven has left the world to join their ancestors because substandard products were used.
    Imagine how many lives could have been saved assuming #EMILINKS products had been used.
    Imagine how we have failed those who died when buildings collapse.

    Imagine the tear drops that have left the eyes of those they left behind. Just imagine.

    I was in my 200level in the year 2014 when in a reputable skul (unizik)when the unexpected took place.

    I just finished 100level emerging into a new session I decided to taste live out the hostel it was fun I was told, having the freedom to go out and come back anything. All my days as a student I have lived in the dormitory and abiding to rule. Am in the university ofcus I need to make research about life outside hostel and tell the story from my own point of view. This was the thought going through my mind. I need to convince my parents too.

    With this thought I meet my friend who also have the intention of moving out we decided to stay roommate outside school.
    I told my dad about moving out how my foodstuffs and thing where been stolen but trust dad that was not convincing but mom stood by me with her help I moved out.

    Rented an apartment outside school the looking for lodge was another issue ,thousand of new lodge outside but I have to settle for the cheaper one and make small profit to buy asset the lodge was not fenced the security was poor the house was substandard but i do believe am the lucky type nothing tragic has ever happened to me i jus needed the extra gain n i dont care ofcus I don’t.

    In the mid semester I travelled home mum was Ill I spent two weeks away. My rumie also travel the reason was unknown to me when I got back I entered my room only to come out and relook at the room number .my rum was A4 but but….

    Am in a4 n the room looked unoccupied Everything is gone my lappy my t.v my everything I called my rumie he acted shocked the only thing left was my mattress I called dad .it has never happened bfr not even in the hostel.
    My door was bad no doubt it was not emilink everything in the house was substandard but I never expected it this harsh ofcus the hostel door was emilink and was standard. The next semester I was send back to hostel ever since I decided not to settle for cheap or substandard the experience was from my point of view as I wanted it. Let use the no.1product that is the best we can do for ourself.

    Day 28.

    How I saved my in law’s house from collapsing by using quality materials.

    School was on break and it was going to be a long vacation. I was yet to find something to engage myself with pending when school will resume.
    One fateful morning, after two weeks of staying at home, my Inlaw called me and asked me to supervise his new building that was just commencing since I will have a good knowledge about building having studied building technology for 3years at the Enugu State university of Technology.
    I assumed work at the site the next day and noticed that the labourers were using substandard materials and were also mixing materials as they wish not as they were supposed to. Immediately, I introduced myself as their new supervisor and laid down new rules threatening to surcharge anyone who do not follow my instructions.
    They murmured what I could not understand and went back to work.
    ….four months down, work has been completed at the site and I was back to school.
    I was in my hostel one afternoon when my phone rang. It was my Inlaw..
    “Hello Sir, Good afternoon” i said on picking the call.
    “Good afternoon Kelvin. How are you and how is school?” He asked in a very clear and cheerful voice.
    “School is fine and how is the family sir?” I asked again.
    “we are all fine.” He answered.
    “Kelvin you see” he started “I must confess that am really impressed with the work you did during the building of my house. From the building, to its painting and furnishing.” I was already smiling and my head swelling. “You see, I invited those guys to build my house because of the speed they put up when building my friend’s house” he continued. “But unknown to me, they were using substandard materials. As am speaking to you now, my friend’s house has been reduced to nothing by a mere wind. His house collapsed in less than 6months after its completion.”
    “Holy Christ” I exclaimed, no longer smiling.
    “For your good works, I owe you a surprise. I will credit your account before the end of the day.” He said.
    “Thank you sir. It was my pleasure”. I replied.
    “Before I forget, who did the furnishing products such as doors, beds, kitchens, dining sets, wardrobes and shelves?” He asked.
    “O, that was emilinks. Emilinks uses a variety of innovative techniques blended with exclusive designs to build premium quality products with a record of excellence in all areas…” He ended the call before I could finish. I guess he was already rushing to visit the nearest Emilinks office.

    My dad is a building contractor and as the first son of the family, whenever he has a building project, I go with him to the site.My dad is known for been a man of principles and this he took into his job.He goes for the best when constructing a building. From the woods to the blocks to the mixture of the sand and cement(not using more SAND than the CEMENT to keep money in his pocket).There are a whole lot of gifts from his clients in the house showing appreciation for a work well done.The use of good building materials for the construction of a house cannot be overemphasized. The house remains for years,from generation to generation. Stories of collapsed buildings do not come from buildings that were built with quality materials but from those built with cheap materials.A house built with good materials feels like a safe haven and you are certain of protection when you have doors like EMILINKS in the house too even though we know God is the ultimate giver of protection. You want that house to be seen by your CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, GREAT GRANDCHILDREN then use quality building materials and some of these can be gotten from Emilinks…Thank you Emilinks.

    We all know that houses built with quality materials cannot be compared with those built with inferior materials. These materials may be more expensive but they are worth it because they help build secure houses.You don’t get to see cracked walls,leaking roofs,windows eaten by termites and the rest.And most importantly Emilinks produces furniture that gives a house further protection. Their doors are the best one can possibly get.If you want that house to be seen by more generations to come, use quality materials like those of Emilinks and you won’t regret it.Thank you Emilinks..

    Just take a very close look at this,a house of 52 years and now still gallant infact no shaking.many of my friends here went to one or two newly built mansion to snap picture to post without even recognising how to know the standard materials used in a house building is solidness of the house and how long the house have lasted.
    When you use sub-standard materials to build a house,being even the land-lord of the house will not have the spirit to live inside it because he did not trust his materials for “eg, a bag of cement that modes 39 blocks he will make his own 50, all he need there is quantity not quality in other to acquire wealth more without thinking twice on the house if it can withstand heavy rain,heavy wind even the weight of hammer from the nail.
    As i said earlier take a very good look at this house,it is quit sure that the house is an old house but quality never fade,”our people said that an old woman is never old in a dance she knew how to dance”.come rain come mighty wind this house don’t shake a bit.
    In conclusion,it will be the most precious thing to build a house with qualities standard materials not sub-standard materials for quantities atleast once and forall then you will have rest of mind and the society will also have.

    Chaii There is God ooooooooo. How on earth will you endanger your live, living in a house built with inferior and substandard material. I decided to write this article this morning because na e something happen last year which I nor go fit forget.
    Imagine a house built just over 2yrs, the house collapsed because of lack of quality building materials. I can still remember vividly that tragic moment a storey building close to my house started collapsing. That day when I rush out I saw people living in the apartment who survive the tragedy crying and complaining that the house was not standard, that before the incident happened there were crack on the wall and whenever it rains the doors and roof will be shaking IMAGINE. Guess what I ask them (survivals)? I said that since you knew this from the onset why did you risk your life by living in the house, their answers was MANAGE.
    Just imagine (MANAGE) Because of this so called manage na builders and contractors take dey put person for risk. How can you build a house with substandard material and call it a shelter when you know that all the building materials used lack quality and security then making it unsecured for tenants.
    Before I forget another house built by the same engineer collapse 2weeks later.
    Then I wonder why people go carry their leg go buy inferior and substandard material while #emilink and others dey there. Watin I get to talk na make we change. If u dey build or u b contractor be wise and get standard n secured building material from #emlinks
    as of me I don upgrade 2 #emlinks bcos they are life saver and security

    My father died shortly after he started d building of our house. He has always been a man who insists on good quality building materials but after his death my uncle took up the task to complete the house so we can move in and not pay rent anymore. Little did we know he dat his plan was to keep the money my dad left in his account for himself. My mum was asked not to have anything to do with the building, that its a man’s duty, so she didn’t know the kind of materials he bought were of low standard. We moved into the house after 3 months of dad’s death, though the other flat is yet to be complete. Less than a yr later my sister was sweeping when she heard a loud sound behind her. It was the decking at the verandah dat had fallen. My mum almost died of hypertension dat day cuz of the shock. We were thankful my sister had just left d spot before it collapsed. This is why the benefit of building with high quality materials cannot be overemphasized. Now my mum is insisting the she takes over overseeing the building work and she has been doing well. Even our doors are Emilinks doors.
    So let us all insist on standard materials for our buildings. Let’s help prevent future hazards and protect our loved ones.
    Insist on Emilinks products for durability and quality.

    This is the house baby, dad said pointing at the building.
    Its amazing, beautiful, oh mommy would be so proud of us, I said to him.
    It has been 4years since the death of my mum, and looking at the house and seeing dad wipe the little drop of tears in his eyes, I knew he still misses her, this was the building plan mum made before she died. I just couldn’t stop staring at the house, it’s beauty, the doors, the roofs, everything inside looked Like heaven, I could not wait to invite my friends over.
    The thunder stroke so loud it woke me up, I could hear the sound of trees moving and the ground shaking profusely, my room was freezing cold..the thunder stroke again and this time worse than the last, the building was shaking..Dad, dad can you hear the whole ruccous. I ran to my dads room but he wasn’t there, where could he be I wondered. I ran out of the building, screamed my dads name but again no reply. Right before my eyes the house I called heaven began to collapse, how could this happen, I thought dad said he used the best of materials, my tears became uncontrollable. I remember watching an advert of Emilinks building materials on tv and how good they her..does that mean dad didn’t use Emilinks materials. Oh this house was built in mums memory, the pain was just too much to bear.
    Anita Anita, I could hear dad call from a distance. I woke up with a start, sweating, still shaking and even with tears in my eyes. Anita you we’re having a bad dream, are you OK? My dad asked
    Oh my God it’s only a dream, I said
    Dad are you planning to build a house.
    yes dear, the building plan your mum made, I think it’s time to create something out of it, why the question, he asked.
    Dad if you want to start building please use Emilinks building materials, it is said to be the best if the best, in terms of quality and even beauty.
    No problem, dad said. And I went ahead to tell him about my horrifying dream.
    How glad I was that it was only a dream and now, #Emilinks building materials would be used to build our house.
    I think that dream was a revelation.. use quality, use emilinks

    Alice is my neighbor, she is the last child of the family of three, she was 20 years old when their father died in a car accident..
    since then their mother vowed not to re-marry so she could take good care of the children. Her elder brother and sister got married two years later. She had been pregnant thrice but miscarried the pregnancy on the fourth month.
    when the third miscarriage occurred, the doctor advised her to avoid stress and anxiety. Alice suggested resignation to her husband so as to stay away from stress at her place of work and also invite her mother to come and stay with her at home, because she trusted her to be of help.
    The husband agreed in order to make her happy and to avoid any other miscarriage. She got pregnant again, when the pregnancy was exactly four months, the bleeding started as usual and she was rushed to the hospital immediately. Thank God, the doctor was able to stop the bleeding in time. The doctor advised that she should be admitted and stay in the hospital until she delivered for proper monitoring. Her mother cooks and brings food for her thrice a day. She took care of them very well and never allowed them to be lonely. Exactly five months after, she gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Thanks to Emilink. #mydoorstory

    my mother went to the market to buy pepper and tomatoes to make a pot of soup. She also bought five tubers of yam, vegetables and palm oil. my brother, David, went with her and carried a big basket along. As mother took out her purse to pay the yam seller, a hungry looking young man snatched the purse and ran away with it. ‘Help! Help! my purse! shouted. David immediately put down the basket and ran after the thief. The thief saw him coming and kept running but did not look at where he was going. He ran straight into a police man who grabbed him. my mother, my brother and a few traders ran up to them and explained what happened to the police man.The police man then led the thief to the station. After making her report at the police station, she got her purse back and went home with my brother David. I love Emilink. #mydoorstory.

    Most people misjudge me and call me all sorts of names; ostentatious, materialistic, miss want it all, e.t.c, but the truth is that I was born into a family that loves me like am the most precious thing in the world but then, that is one of the perks of being an only child.
    A time came when my parents started hinting on the sad obvious fact that it’s high time I got married. Their concerns and advice fell on my deaf ears and the horror of it all started when my parents who have loved and cared for me like the oxygen they will breath in next depended on the carbon-di-oxide I exhale, changed and became less caring and treated me with a cold shoulder shrug.
    It’s not I don’t want to get married but how do I meet a man that has exquisite taste and loves me like my dad.
    Not too long ago I met Charles. He is tall, chubby, dark, handsome and has a witty sense of humour like my dad.
    The first time I visited his house I fell in love with him more because I noticed the fine finishing, the kitchen cabinet, fire proof doors and the luxurious entrance door that he purchased from emilinks. I knew he was the one for me because just like my dad he understands that a house cannot be a home if it is not built with solid and quality materials and what other way can one define quality if not with emilinks.
    Thank God my dad sent me to make payments for him at kilometre 24 lekki-Epe Express road, Lagos at emilinks where I met my husband and thank God for emilinks for giving me the opportunity to create a second home from the home I had always lived in at an affordable price.

    This is the house baby, dad said pointing at the building.
    Its amazing, beautiful, oh mommy would be so proud of us, I said to him.

    The environment I live is filled with more illiterate than literate,am from an average home so we couldn’t afford to stay in a pent house.A few blocks away from where we stay is the most beautiful house house in my area.
    One terrible Friday evening around 8pm we started preparing for vigil and all that was on my mind is the non-stop marathon clapping throughout the night where your hands ache and your fingers is about to break but you must keep clapping all because the pastor said there’s a witch in your family that doesn’t want your glory to shine.so around 8:30pm we left for church but I noticed on our way that I could feel rain drop on my body but I never thought I would later turn out to be something serious.not long after we got to church a heavy rain stated everyone was scared because it’s already over an hour and the rain didn’t stop but the pastor calmed us down saying “the time of Noah has gone and God promised not the destroy the earth with water again”everyone was relieved on hearing this and after 2hrs the rain stoped so we ended the vigil clapping our hands out as usual and I didn’t even mind because I was feeling cold and the clapping was a sort of exercise to generate heat.
    On our way back from church on Saturday morning we could see people gathering and crying at a building few blocks away from my house and as I moved closer I noticed dat the most beautiful house in my area has collapsed overnight due to the heavy rain and luckily the owner of the house and his family didn’t die but was seriously injured.I could hear from the people standing that the man is supposed to have his 4th wedding anniversary the following Saturday and the event was a great loss to the family.Later on we heard from the contractor who supplied the blocks for building the house that the man ordered for cheap blocks and according to him cheap blocks are the ones with much sand and less cement which are definitely not strong enough but he warned him and he refused saying he wanted a house so bad and didn’t have more money.since that day I decided I’ll always invest my money on quality because quantity without quality is useless.#my doorstory #bellanaija #day29

    During my infant days in Lagos, I witnessed a building collapse right in front of me.
    To tag it as hellish would be an understatement.
    I was scared to my bone marrow, while my heart momentarily stuck to my heart. The building opposite that of mine was the one that thought it wise to collapse and destroy a lot of humans alongside it.

    Why wouldn’t the building collapse? The building reeked of old age and begged for renovation or outright demolition.

    Trust some Nigerians who would prefer the lives of their tenants to be sacrificed on the altar of greediness, instead of them to pull down their old houses or renovate them.

    Immediately the house collapsed, sounds of wail filled the street. All we felt was sorrow and tears.

    Parents were left without children, while some children instantly turned into orphans because of the carelessness of one man.

    Years after, as a student of Uniport, I have witnessed a lot of buildings being erected from the foundation stage to the roofing level.

    One thing that was common about the numerous building projects was that quality materials were used instead of some substandard and quack building materials.

    Maybe that was made it stand out from other buildings that have collapsed.
    Maybe that was why it was unheard of for any uniport structure to collapse.

    Some unscrupulous contractors may go for substandard equipments to save cost, but there is a pertinent question that must be answered by those without scruples.

    Are they lives of those who perished as a result of the negligence of the part of the contractors worth less than chickens?

    Buy quality equipments from trusted brands like Emilinks, some won’t listen.
    Use a brand who has be tested and trusted, yet some won’t listen.
    The blood and tears of both the victims and the bereaved would continue to hunt those who ply the trade of substandard products

    My mother went to the market to buy pepper and tomatoes to make a pot of soup. she also bought five tubers of yam, vegetables and palm oil. My brother, David, went with her and carried a big basket along. As my mother took out her purse to pay the yam seller, a hungry looking young man snatched the purse and ran away with it.
    ‘Help! Help! My purse!’ she shouted. David immediately put down the basket and ran after the thief. The thief saw him coming and kept running but did not look at where he was going. He ran straight into a policeman who grabbed him. My mother, David and a few traders ran up to them and explained what happened to the policeman. The policeman then led the thief to the police station. After making her report at the police station, she got her purse back and went home with David. thanks #Emilink #mydoorstory.
