1) Justice Ogbemudia – 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 herseld,”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 open other doors. it was of no use as all the locks were broken. Immediately she screamed “Am finished”. Of course the burglars 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 using 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.

There’s a saying that goes, anything worth doing is worth doing well… My friend and I both got loans from a microfinance bank for building. We agreed to build 4 bungalows each with the money gotten,then pay pack over the period of three years. My friend came to my office one day so happy, she told me dat she met a contractor who told her he could used the money and build 7 bungalows instead of the 4 bungalows we agreed… She said he told her there is a place in contonu where building materials are gotten at a very low price. I tried as a friend to talk her out of it but to no avail! She continued wit her 7 bungalows plan while I continued with my 4 bungalows… It’s been 5years now, I have been able to pay back the loan and I’m still enjoying my property. Sadly my friend has a different story entirely, she hasn’t been able to pay back her loan and she barely has tenants because abt 2years ago, the septic tank of one of the bungalows broke and a 1yr old baby fell in and died! Since then, tenants are always running away frm the compound! I can give this testimony because I used quality and standard materials from Emilinks. It is better to go for the best and have peace than use Substandard materials and be restless. Use Emilinks. Emilinks is tested and trusted!

5) Ibidun D. – The earth shook that i thought it was the end of the world.
So i lived in the northern part of Nigeria, last year we received a bomb threat in my town targeting a shopping mall, We living close to this mall started living in fear. A month had passed by and nothing happened,we had all forgotten the threat and living life to the fullest as usual.
Suddenly, on this ill fated day i couldnt even remember what i was doing when i heard a loud noise, “the earth shook that i thought it was the end of the world”, everything in the house was scattered by the tremor. I stood up and looked outside and alas! An explosion had occurred at the targeted mall.
As a result of the tremor caused by the explosion houses in the vicinity began to fall. But surprisingly ours didn’t, it was then i remembered that my husband made sure he got the best quality product out there when building our house even the paint used in painting it is fire proof.
So when most building fell due to the tremor ours stood still thanks to quality materials. If my husband hadn’t use quality materials that day would have been a double shock and i wouldn’t have been able to handle it. Use quality for safety and peace of mind. #Emilinks #mydoorstory
6) Bishop I. – #MyDoorStory #Emilinks “day 29”
“Ayomide, Iremide, common enter the car you are late for school”. ‘Mum my 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.
7) Ayuba M. – Day 29
Standard building materials is a most important and indispensable factor which is very important in building our homes, offices, schools, hospitals etc and it concerns everyone irrespective of race and religion.
It is a sad day to all Kano state university of technology students (KUST) , other schools students and caring parents who knew about the sad incidence that took place at KUST on 25th August 2016 around 12 noon, a building under construction at the school premises collapsed on some of the school students while waiting and still preparing for their examination coming up around 2:30pm same day. The uncompleted building became a reading spot for some students because the area is not noisy and thus believe it helps in improving the rate of assimilation, but things turns not as expected as this ugly incidence left alot of students injured and even a dead record. I want to use this medium to call on the attention of government,rich and poor masses to save their lives and that of their love ones by avoiding the use of substandard building materials. However Emilinks product are the best building materials, for your kitchen, doors and wardrobes, Saying yes to Emilinks is saying no to substandard building materials. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory
8) ohakachioma – Day 29 – The trauma and anger left in a person as a result of the sudden collapse of his building is nothing to write home about… Of course its almost his life savings which must have gone down the drain….I am a witness of such occurrence and this is my story…After so much plea from my mum asking my dad to build her a shop in front of my house, my dad decided to build it..Surprisingly it didnt take up to a month and the building was done….But after like two months we noticed a big crack on the building…thinking its one of those few things that comes up on buildings we ignored it …..Then oneday my brother called telling me the building collapsed suddenly after a heavy downpour…i was sad, what kind of quack building materials did the builders use, of course God saved my mum she would have been in the shop and it will colapse on her…God forbid the story would have been different….The importance of using a good building material is not far fetched…. For one the rest of mind you have while occupying that building is very much assured…2: you will continue to see your money invested in the building and be happy?… Moreover, come rain come sunshine your building still stands tall whenever u see it.. #emilinks #mydoorstory @bellanaijaonline
9) walexzola – #Emilinks #MyDoorStory….
The importance of building with good and quality materials cannot be over emphasised nor can it be overrated because it goes a long way than making a house beautiful on outside but also making it safe and homey on the inside.this is what most people dont realise before they start building gigantic houses using substandard materials just because they want people who see the house from outside to envy them when they could have built a smaller house which would bring them protection from weather conditions and also gives no room for accidents in the home.this was the harsh reality my cousin came to after building a beautiful mansion which i told him to use emilinks materials for but he wouldn’t listen telling me he had everything under control.it was dream house for everybody that came across that house right from the foundation level.the kind of house that u would see and start questioning God.this dream house was completed,lo and behold we were all proud of my cousin and he too was bragging all about like dangote.on the day of the house warming that was when laughter turned into cries and heads began rolling because the house crumbled without a single structure surviving.there were many casualities and dead bodies.if only my cousin had used emilinks quality materials then this wouldnt av happened #bellanaijaonline
10) @itzkvng_gee – Day 29
Always build your houses with standard materials don’t improvise.
I recall when we were in our previous house. We couldn’t sleep at night. The roofing sheets were always disturbing, making creaking noise. The fence in front of our house fell during a rainy night and caused damage to the corridor falling the pillars. That same night our kitchen ceiling fell in. That was what woke us up. We woke up to find the living room flooded. It then dawned on us that we had to move out. The house in the picture is our new place and it strong to the core because the materials are standard and strong. The builders didn’t improvise. My dad personally supervised the construction. Use standard materials for good satisfaction. Use emilinks
