We’ve had a quiet week, haven’t we? No noise, no wahala, no nothing. Everyone was just mellow, drinking water and minding their business. Still, mellow and minding business doesn’t mean people didn’t move mad small. So let’s get right into it!
Majek Fashek Very Much Alive
Where were we on Monday morning when news arrived that So Long singer had passed. It was everywhere and the case of how it started was like the case of the chicken and the egg—did the radio stations see the news on social media, or did social media users hear it on the radio? Anyway, as soon as the news spread, was also the news that, Ah, Majek Fashek no die oo. No use rumour kill am, beg. And now, we’ve heard new rumours that billionaire Femi Otedola has settled his medical bills. We await confirmation.
Here’s to the rainmaker, Majek Fashek. Praying for his speedy recovery. pic.twitter.com/MmocobxbcR

The Port Harcourt Serial Killer
Have you heard about the Port Harcourt serial killer? At least ten women have lost their lives at his/her hands. The MO is that a white cloth is tied around the necks and bodies of their victims.
The police has arrested a suspect, and videos of him speaking and a photo of him eating has been shared on social media. Let’s hope he’s guilty, and the real killer still isn’t out there.
THERE IS A SERIAL KILLER IN PORT HARCOURT!!!!
MORE THAN TEN LADIES HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE SAME MANNER, WHY AREN'T THE POLICE DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT?!!
ITS NOT EVEN A JOKE AGAIN!!

A serial killer is killing women in certain hotels in port harcourt and just today another lady has been found dead, this is not getting enough media attention something needs to be done as soon as possible

Went to see if there were major stories about the serial killer-esque murders in Port Harcourt, and of course the NPF rep, blamed it on prostitution https://t.co/tGL0PH2YAP

So a lady in Port Harcourt who sells hair and beauty products apparently escaped an episode.
Someone calls her ordering beauty products saying she just got into town and is checked at a hotel, so she should come make the delivery there.
Only for her to get to the hotel and call

Spare the Rod, Spoil the South African Child
Let’s be honest, it could happen anywhere in the world and social media users would make it into a laugh: spanking children being banned. Well, it’s happened in South Africa, and South Africans had a field day with it.
Welcome to South Africa, where rape, murder, human trafficking, robbery and selling drugs, won't get you jailed, but spanking your kids will?
— Brenda Myburgh Pretorius (@MyburghBrenda) September 20, 2019
Lol. No spanking in South Africa https://t.co/D9V7EcEmnu

Wait! Spanking a child is now "Unconstitutional"? I'm gonna make a sign at my gate, stating "You are now leaving the Republic of South Africa".
— Itumeleng (@TUMI02GP) September 18, 2019
I think the reaction to the spanking judgement has showed how disconnected parents in South Africa are to their children, Only language they speak is corporal punishment. And you wonder why we have so many children committing suicide nowadays. Irresponsible parenting.
— ? (@ProdByJr) September 18, 2019
— Lesego?? (@LesegoFelicity) September 19, 2019
The ConCourt has ruled that spanking yr child at home is illegal in SAn homes.
The appeal was brought by Freedom of Religion South Africa which argued that the High Court judgment will make criminals of well-meaning parents.

Constitutional court ruling is only against Whites. It’s only whites who spanks their children. Black families don’t spank, they beat. #concourt

Ok people calm down.
How many of your children read #ConCourt judgments anyway?
If you fear prosecution just don't tell them about the judgment ?

MC Oluomo Goes Back to School
Not really. What really happened was he was allegedly invited to speak at UNILAG, and, well, people had words. Words like, why is someone who’s known for disrupting elections (or caught on camera stating his intentions to, anyway) lent legitimacy by a higher institution? But others have said they’d love to hear him speak, so one man’s meat, we guess.
Lol… MC Oluomo cannot speak at your event? I will pay good money to spend hours with that man.
I find it soothing to learn from raw, uncivilized successful people. They have wonderful procedures and stories that no business book will teach you.
— Balogun Danjuma (@Danjo_Oosha) September 20, 2019
I think one of the trends I’ve noticed in Nigeria society is; intellectuals are so high handed that, the Mc Oluomo’s are now the ones taking the lead. All these grammar won’t save Nigeria, if you want to leave Nigeria leave, if you feel you can do better join a party.
— Mr. Ejale (@MrEjale) September 20, 2019
Educated people really need to stop trying to mystify MC Oluomo.
I come from Warri, I can show you so many uneducated thugs with political power.
Violence and patronage are like demand and supply, it's really not that complicated.

The University of Lagos, Akoka, has said it did not approve the banner which had the Caretaker Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in Lagos State, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, as one of the invited guests for a programme on the campus. #mcoluomo pic.twitter.com/A3Zh0nR1fD

Remember when someone was contesting for governor and you’d turn your head and see his face? When was the last time you saw or heard from him?
Anyway, it rained in Lagos on Thursday morning, and everywhere
stew flood! It was go-slow like no other, cars becoming boats and wading through water. So Lagos people, tired, decided to trend the hashtag #EkoMustMove. Because, really, it must.
Dear Governor @jidesanwoolu, are we going to live in traffic all the days of our lives? Lagosians please help RT this so the Governor sees it or someone mentions it to him.
— Dr. Dípò Awójídé (@OgbeniDipo) September 19, 2019
I was born and brought up in Ajao estate and schooled in OAU, but the traffic in Lagos is the reason why I did not return to Lagos. Why would you spend close to 4 hours in a traffic within a short distance and then you can't spend 4 hours from Ile-ife to Lagos #EkoMustMove
— Teekay (@leketeekay) September 19, 2019
This is what #ekotraffic does to you!
Having spent 3hrs for a journey meant to last only 30mins, you step out of the car, climb the pedestrian bridge to have a view of the future.
Only to see that the future isn't promising. 4hrs gone, no movement whatsoever!

I used to know all the Potholes on my House – Office route by heart. I even gave them names: Kayode Exhaust (because it once ruptured my exhaust pipe), Mobolaji 1, Ojota Bumper, etc. But now, I can’t name anymore. I can’t drive by memory. Every day, new pothole. #EkoMustMove https://t.co/dNW7vcr4Ua

It appears Lagos must do better to pass a law that tries to force and possibly incentivise large companies on the Island to consider remote work for staff, or prioritize work time.
Must we all resume at 8am and close by 5? #EkoMustMove
What happened to 24 hour economy?

Why cant our government offer train transportation in major routes?
Progressive Nations started using linear road transportation since 1800, why do our govt only sound smart during campaign but act so dumb when elected?

Meeting up with an appointment in Lagos is really something else, the traffic is always there to hold you back.
It's becoming utterly unbearable.
