      @Laface, you got it!
      Self serving post, but why under the guise of humility do our people do this?

    Her GPA is something to be proud of! Studying abroad is even cheaper than these useless expensive schools in Nigeria, don’t let your complex show too much. Better be happy for him so God can answer your own prayers and you can one day afford to send your child abroad

    Thank you RMD for making this generation know that our Christian tenets and African culture is a very important structure for teenagers whether at home or abroad! Correct Urhobo man! And best wishes to our lovely angel!may the good Lord continue to keep her and make his face shine upon her!
    The man has the right to write whatever he wants to write about his daughter’s grades ,because 3.8 gpa is not beans especially in this America wey to read book hard!

    No no no! This is getting out of hand!! What the hell is truly wrong with some of u? A father cannot praise or brag about his daughter without u lot writing total rubbish?? Like seriously WTH is going on! And I’m not buying all that ‘oh keep things private blah blah’ that’s is just BS! Face facts! U r not just happy to hear ppl doing well! Now search urself and ask urself why? What cld have happened to u that a father praising his daughter bothers u so much?? May God heal ur pain…

      Asin may God heal their pain. I didn’t know how bad Buhari’s administration until the past two months in BN. They are currently the worst and meanest group of commenters on the Nigerian blogosphere. Says a lot about the financial groups being affected in Nigeria and how many are responding. I guess this is the middle class’ first time so they’re still coping

    How will she read it? Maybe she comes to bella naija, guess she’s allowed to surf the internet! I would truly feel loved if my dad this for me(he has actually, on face book, on my birthday, he wrote a lovely mushy epistle) I scrolled down expecting for once to read comments like awww, or just plain happy birthday but just look at one is reading?? What the hell is wrong with some of you!! How do you think she will feel reading these comments about her father!! Have you no shame, or discretion or limits???? Gosh!! I tire for people these days!! Happy birthday darling,I think you have a loving father,and he’s right you know… Social median can be such an ugly place as proven by some comments up there,its best you wait till you’re older so you can make more balanced decisions….
