On Being the Least Favorite Child



I can work very well on my own and never succumb to peer pressure because, since childhood I’ve always felt a little different, odd even, there was always something remotely hostile about my being.

I was the child who opened my mother’s womb and my birth was greeted with much joy, things changed for my mother and my father was exhilarated. I was the princess. That is until three short years later when my sister was born.

My mum often said there was something significant about her birth, she was born the same day her mother died and looked exactly like her mother hence, she was fondly called ‘mama’ by my mother.

I on the other hand, resembled my father from his skin tone to his moods. I was a quiet sensitive child, often keeping to myself as opposed to my radiant, friendly, busy body sister. She no doubt was a pretty child, always praised by all, sought out by brides and grooms across the world to be used as their little bride or flower girl. Me? Well I was never invited not once not even by a blind person.

I grew up with one conviction. I was ugly and would never be loved (and probably even adopted) my self-esteem was at an all-time low. I still remember clearly those that were nice to me because, I can assure you they were few. Not that these people (actually my family) were horrible or anything I was simply overshadowed period.

I was a voracious reader with an incredible imagination, it provided an escape to the almost pitiable state I was in. Due to my nonstop reading, I developed an eye defect called myopia which led me to have to use really ugly glasses. This didn’t help matters, I ended up being a skinny, gawky, teenager with bad acne and bottle lens glasses who swayed while walking. That sealed the no friends and definitely no boyfriends deal. It was hard to believe I was related to the almost ‘half caste’ beauty that was my sister.

I was suicidal for a very long time and when I went to my mother for help, her reply showed that she either didn’t take me seriously, didn’t know how to handle the situation, or worse didn’t care. I had to give up the suicide business when the last one failed. I had taken an overdose of sleeping pills (at least 10 pills) but when I miraculously awoke I knew then and there that God wasn’t giving up on me yet. I was only seventeen.

God has a way of compensating people. He blessed me with brains, I was a fast learner an excellent reader and decent writer. I excelled in school despite my troubles and I was the best graduating Arts and Humanities student in my set. I went on to study law at a prestigious University and am now a Barrister.

Today, people tell me I am beautiful I accept the compliment gracefully I can never be vain (seventeen years of constantly being called ugly will teach you that). I am married to a most amazing man who tells me how wonderful I am every day he is also one of the big players in real estate in the country having several estates in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt. I am a senior partner at a firm that pays six figure salaries to NYSC corpers (yes there are law firms like this in Nigeria you need to go out more).

I am now pregnant with a baby girl. I have forgiven past wrongs and have moved on in life with enough love to give mostly to my daughter whom I will protect from the evils of this world. Everyone has a path to choose, either to wallow in self-pity or to take control of life. I have chosen mine what’s yours?

Tips to a Happy Loving Relationship

Image result for happy black couple
What makes for a healthy romantic relationship differs from couple to couple. Forming a trusting and positive partnership takes effort and time. And unfortunately, it doesn’t just happen overnight. For any relationship to grow strong and stay strong, you need to put in some work. Below are some habits that will help create and maintain a happy and healthy twosome.


Communication is key. It is one of the most important qualities a healthy relationship. However, not everyone knows how to communicate properly ... or even communicate at all. Happy and healthy couples have this game down. They vocalize their love for one another, saying “I love you” often and offering compliments. They also discuss the bad instead of sweeping issues under the rug. In order to move forward and grow, you two need to be able to truly talk about your feelings. No matter how awkward or uncomfortable it feels, it will make for a long-lasting and fulfilling relationship.



Aretha Franklin sang a whole song about it, so you know it’s got to be important. Respecting your partner comes in many forms. Maintaining a joyful relationship means respecting your partner’s time, heart, character, and trust. However, there are many things people do in relationships that can break down respect, like name-calling, talking negatively about the other to friends or family, and/or threatening to leave the relationship.


Quality Time, Not Quantity

 It’s all about quality over quantity. It doesn’t matter how much time you and your partner spend together. The most important part is about the quality of this time. There’s a huge difference between having dinner at a table while talking about your day at work, versus having dinner while sitting on a couch watching the latest episode of Empire. It’s fine to zone out together and enjoy distractions, but it’s crucial to make sure you two are still engaging and spending quality time together to maintain a deep connection.


Time Apart

Spending time together with your partner is important. But just as important is spending time apart. Being able to do your own things and remain independent is vital. When couples spend too much time together, it can create an unhealthy codependence. Maintaining healthy boundaries and some autonomy will make for a long-lasting partnership.


Love Languages

 Gary Chapman came up with the notion that men and women have five love languages. People have unique ways of feeling loved. There are words of affirmation, receiving gifts, quality time, acts of service, and physical touch. It’s important to know which love language speaks to you, along with your partner. Telling each other what makes you feel loved and special helps both of you stay connected. Furthermore, make sure you are attending to your partner’s love language consistently.



 Often, we forget to let other people in our lives know that we appreciate them. We think it, but we don't remember to show it. This occurs in our romantic relationships as well. Show your special someone that you love him or her. This could be done with words, cards, flowers, acts of kindness, or more. Remember, a flower a day keeps the fights at bay. Okay, maybe not every day, but you get the point.


Positive Vs. Negative

 Sometimes, we get caught up in the negative. We hate our jobs, are annoyed with our friends, and our boyfriend or girlfriend is getting on our last nerve. Uh-oh, have we been drinking too much of that half-empty glass? It’s vital that we look at our partner’s positive qualities, in contrast to the negative. Nobody is perfect, and that includes our significant other. So instead of focusing on the bad, let's make a conscious effort to look at the good.


Choose Your Battles

 There are arguments to be had in every relationship. It’s crucial to bring issues to the forefront, and work through the hard times together. However, I don’t think arguing over your SO using your favorite coffee cup should be one of those. Choose your battles wisely, because people in happy and healthy relationships do.



 Let’s talk about sex, baby. Let’s also talk about how important it is in cultivating a flourishing relationship. Sex is simple. The more you have it, the more you want it. The other side of that is true as well. The less you have it, the less you want it — and, unfortunately, the less you'll feel connected to your partner. Keep your sex life alive and interesting. "Spicing it up" is not just meant for the kitchen.
CAVEAT: You should only wait for marriage before you have sex it as been proven to help marriages last longer plus my God does not like fornication.


No Comparisons

 The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Or even if it is, it might not be the kind of grass you would like. We often compare our lives to those of others — what jobs people have, their homes, their clothes. And with the help of social media, we tend to compare our relationships as well. But the happiest of couples don’t look to see what the grass looks like on the other side. They are happy with the view out their own front door.

Why You Should Be Gay

In the days of old, Gay simply meant; happiness but alas we are not in the days of old.

This is a time were if you aren't gay you aren't cool, aren't fascinating enough, God forbid you are homophobic you will then be hated more than the devil himself.

Have you noticed that everything on TV is now gay centered. Think of all the good series you've watched this year I bet you they all have at least one gay couple in it except Once Upon A Time (the cleanest series on television).
Its like if you don't have a gay person on your show it won't blow.
Celebrities are coming out of their so called closets in hundreds. The married writer of Orange is The New Black just suddenly 'discovered' she was a lesbian and divorced her husband. Can you remember Raven from "That's So Raven" Doctor Do Little's daughter well she too suddenly realized she was a lesbian and now has a female partner. The list goes on.
 Image result for thats so raven                               Image result for raven symone gay
There are LGBT movements everywhere celebrities are now abandoning the "usual" hunger poverty eradication charities to support gay people. "Let the children starve I'll be more popular by supporting gay people yay! (Since when have they become disabled people that need your support)
Image result for LGBT movement

Did some very important gay people rise out of the ashes and vow to gayinate the world?
Is the government using this as a way to control the population?
Have we all gone mad?

Rom 1:26-28   For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Lev 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Jude 1:7 Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

1 Cor 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

I am by no means a gay basher neither do I hate them or insult them or whatever gay bashers do because that will only make me a self righteous hypocritical bigot I have no I intentions of being a bigot. I just want to remind those that want to be reminded that this is not right!

My meeting with Aliko Dangote's girlfriend

It was a lazy evening and we were all sitting in the house complaining about how Nina bought two thousand naira beans that was tasteless and how she couldn't even share with me who travelled all the way across the country on her behalf.

Suddenly, everywhere went quiet, a little breeze blew and we heard the most sonorous voice ever beckoning Nina informing her of its presence. It stepped into our parlor amidst much anticipation as to what kind of human wears the kind of perfume that would fill a whole apartment in Lagos. When she stepped in we knew.Shehad the skin of mermaids, the smile of angels, and the eyes of a baby; oh those eyes, they exuded such innocence you would be willing to thrust your heart into her arms.

She smiled at us and greeted us while sitting down carelessly like she was not aware of the effect she had on us. I felt immediately sorry for my male friend in the room because even though he was incredibly handsome I could feel the over powering effect her beauty had on him.

Nina introduced us and I conversed with her lightly trying to hide the fact that I felt like a second hand citizen in her presence.

After we talked for a while we offered her the beans that nearly caused World War III in the house and she dismissed it with a wave of hand claiming she was dieting and instead offered us snack bars instead. The effect of the dieting was very clear because with that body she could easily pass for a super model.

The reason I was in Lagos that day, was for Nina's elaborate party that was supposed to take place on the sea and I was sure this mermaid will be happy to be near her people throughout the party. It was time to prepare and we had to shower, as Nina's most important people; I and Mermaid were allocated one room to share with a bathroom and for the first time in my life I was ashamed to take off my clothes. I have always been an unapologetic nudist terrorizing my friends with all my glory anytime I was indoors so this was a big deal! How could I become nude with this perfection near me? When she stripped, hard as I tried not to stare I saw a body that was both curvy and firm everything was still in place no sign of sagging or wear and tear her complexion was even all the way through well it had to be when she was using a cream that was worth the same amount as a Director’s salary.

We gisted as we prepared for the party shared make up checked out each other’s outfit and all that girly stuff. She seemed nice, soft spoken and easy to be with. She offered to drive me to the venue because she knew I couldn't possibly be with a car in Lagos when I’m coming from Abuja. When I saw the car I couldn't help but drool but of course you would if you see a car that cost ten million naira won't you.

We arrived at Nina's elaborate party and dined and wined with the rich, famous, and wanna be's Nina's boyfriend is a Lagos big boy so obviously we had a Lagos party. I think we bonded over the Lagos party or something because after the party when we were recovering Nina casually taunted the mermaid saying

'So Dangote has been your boo all this while and you've been keeping quiet forming nothing" to which she replied

"Is that something to brag about when he will soon leave me for the next one" She went on to tell us how hard she had to work on her body and her carriage to be in that position but she knew it will be over before she can say Jack.

I spinned back to consciousness, so one man will discard this queen of mermaids like a piece of trash because he has more money than he can use, because people of this world worship the very ground that he walks on, because he is the most successful businessman in Africa. Interesting how we take life too seriously some of us want to kill ourselves because of this life. Sit back and think what is your life all about what are you living for find your purpose pursue it but most of all be happy not because of anybody or what they can give you but because of yourself and your Creator.

10 Reasons Why She Will Leave you (and how to fix it)

Ok so after much perusing, gisting and a little bit of a personal experience I've come with ten major reasons why a woman will leave a man.
Most men act confused and lost when their special someone leaves them because they don't really know what they have done wrong and end up blaming women calling them heartless and other names I really don't care for right now.
That's why I'm here to enlighten you in case you didn't know she probably left or will leave you because of one of these reasons sit back and enjoy :)
  • Boring personality:  Of course when your gists just makes her eyes water and become drowsy she will leave you for the next person that at least makes her laugh. Nobody likes to be perpetually bored and when you keep boring her to death will your dull lifestyle of course she will find who ever can light up her day.                                                                                                                                               
  • Remedy: Learn how to converse, take her out to fun filled places with exciting people make sure you don't deprive her of visiting places she loves or doing things she loves

  • Female best friend: You may never notice and you may think your girlfriend is going crazy but most times if you have a best friend of the opposite sex that is not your sibling your relationships may not prosper. That so called best friend may be secretly in love with you and will try her best to sabotage the relationship or if not your girl is just not comfortable with the fact that you give another woman your precious time. Unfortunately some women sometimes see each other as a threat and if they are not graceful enough to leave peacefully you might just have to be telling one of them goodbye.                                                                                                                                                     
  • Remedy: You can still keep your best friend but stop talking about her to your girlfriend and start planning your time with the best friend so you won't have to deprive your girlfriend of your time because of another woman. Also if possible don't plan outings or whatever with both of them in tow especially if one or the other have voiced feelings of being uncomfortable around the other person

  • Cheating: But this is elementary so I wonder why men that cheat still act confused when their woman leaves them, and then there's also that ex factor and if she sees you're still hung up on your ex she might be walking out that door before you say it                                                                                                               
  • Remedy: Don't cheat! and if you are still hung up on your ex why will you be dragging another woman into your messed up situation. Think about this.

  • Not spending money: Everybody loves beautiful things and every woman likes to feel like a spoiled princess once in a while. If you cant take her to nice places buy her nice things and spoil her once in a while she will feel that you don't love her enough to spend on her and move on to the next cheerful spender that comes along.
  • Remedy: Please don't be stingy you have to spend money to be romantic whether you like it or not I didn't say empty your bank account but do the little you can and she will see no reason to leave you.

  • Not having money: If you don't have this 'root of all evil' you will be seen as a lazy man who lacks ambition and is in order words, useless. Honestly the average woman will not waste time to leave you when she finds out.                               Remedy: Work hard and make money

  • Boring in the bedroom: For those who have decided to practice it extra maritally you have to be good because when there's no passion in that area she won't even realize it when she starts looking for someone to make up for it.                
  • Remedy: If you must do it then please read books on it or watch videos to make you better at it

  • Male best friend: All these best friends sef anyway no matter how you trust your best friend don't make it a habit to always leave him and your bae alone always especially if you know he's more interesting than you are. Even if he's not, shoving another man into your girls face all the time is not exactly the best relationship tip.  Women can be funny you will be shocked when she will suddenly discover that he's her missing rib not you lol and your friend may also be the funnier one trying to convince her of the fact.                                                                                      
  • Remedy: If you cannot be there with her at the moment then let her be with her friends or just leave her alone. You don't have to delegate your role to your best friend maybe once or twice doesn't hurt but not all the time.

  • Unavailability: There's nothing a woman hates more than turning around to look at her man and seeing air, abeg except you have a tangible reason to be away all the time find time to nurture your relationship with your bae stop leaving her hanging or else someone else will fill up that gap.                                                               
  • Remedy: If your job demands it talk to her about it and make sure she is the kind of woman that can cope because women love attention from the men they love.

  • Lies: You are a pathological liar you lie about everything even what you had for breakfast. Ah ah bros if you lie so much you start looking like a confused clown. Stop lying foolish lies because whether you want to admit it she is smart and most times she just pretends like she believes you because she doesn't have the energy to deal with it.                                                                                                         
  • Remedy: Don't keep doing shitty stuff if you know you'll keep lying about it its not wise. Be a man of your words a man of dignity and your woman will treat you like the king that you are.

  • She has moved up and you are still down: Women love with respect if she can't respect you the love fades if she has moved up to a higher level in life like going to college, getting a job, meeting important people etc. and you are still stuck in a rut she will start looking for a man that will match up to her lifestyle.
  • Remedy: Always be the best at what you do be ahead of your game and people will want to be around you

Have a lovely day peeps *bows out*

Why you should Waist train and Body Shape

With celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose advocating for waist training we decided to delve in and see what all the fuss is about. And we infact found reasons why it is such a rave. See below for our good reasons

What is Waist Training?

Waist training is a gradual process of waist reduction using a steel boned corset. Also known as waist cinching or tight-lacing the practice came to prominence in Victorian times but has made something of a comeback in recent years. Wearing a tight-lacing corset, exercise and eating a healthy diet can radically reduce the waist of women.

Furthermore, the wearing of a corset whilst undertaking a healthy diet helps reduce food volume intake by constricting the internal organs thus helping promote the healthier practice of smaller meals, more often, rather than three large meals a day.

Tight-lacing as a means of permanent waist-reduction and re-shaping is a practice requiring discipline and is best achieved when the following 3 components work in harmony:

  • Waist Cinching using a traditional steel-boned corset
  • Healthy Diet
  • Regular Exercise
Furthermore waist training is a faster way of loosing weight and achieving a hour glass figure while your at it. Its really a win win situation
For those that want to go the extra mile and shape their whole body they are not left out.
Body Shaper does a more rounded job in that it works on the whole body and
  • Reduce fat in the crotch area
  • Corrects posture and shapens overall figure
  • Smoothens irregularities and helps prevent additional deposits.
I'm sure you're probably wondering hmmm how do I get these amazing products well that's why I'm here for you I've already purchased mine at an unbelievable price infact it was so unbelievable that I  had to rush and grab it before it finished. You can too!! Just contact Vicky at 2BC286F4 or call/whatsapp at 08071220858

Couple Stabs Young Girls Privates and Smears it with Pepper

A 10-year-old girl, Chidinma, has been admitted at an undisclosed hospital after a couple – Eucheria Chukwuma and Jerry Oko-Oboh – allegedly beat her up and stabbed her in the private parts with a broken bottle.
It was learnt that the couple and the victim’s family lived on Joshua Street, Agbabiaka, in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos.
Punch Metro Reports that the couple assaulted the minor for allegedly fiddling with the vagina of their three-year-old daughter, Peace.

It is gathered that Chidinma, who denied the allegation, had played with Peace at about 7pm on April 6. It was alleged that the toddler later cried and told her parents that Chidinma fiddled with her private parts.

Angered by the complaint, 30-year-old Chukwuma, it was learnt, went to Chidinma’s mother, Ofia, demanding that Chidinma follow her to her room.

A few minutes later, Ofia reportedly heard her daughter screaming and rushed to Chukwuma’s apartment to see what was wrong.

On getting there, the door was said to have been locked by the couple who reportedly beat up the victim repeatedly with punches. Not satisfied, the wife allegedly stabbed Chidinma in the private parts and smeared them with pepper.

Our correspondent was told that the couple fled the neighbourhood when blood started gushing from Chidinma’s vagina. They were later trailed and arrested by the police after the attack was reported at the Okokomaiko Police station.

The police said Chukwuma, in a statement she voluntarily made at the station, confessed to the crime, saying she became furious when the girl declined comments about Peace’s allegation.

She and her husband were subsequently arraigned before an Apapa Magistrate’s Court on three counts bordering on assault.

The offence, according to the police prosecutor, Olusoji Ojaokomo, is punishable under sections 171, 243 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.

The charges read in part, “That you, Eucheria Chukwuma, 30 and Jerry Oko-Oboh, 32 on April 6, 2015, at about 9pm on Joshua Street, Agbabiaka, Oke-Agbo, Ajangbadi, in the Ojo Magisterial District, did conspire to commit felony and unlawfully assaulted one 10-year-old Chidinma, by beating her up with fist blows in her eye, which caused her harm.

“That you, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did unlawfully assault one Chindima by stabbing her with a broken bottle in her private parts.”

The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the offence.

The presiding magistrate, Mr. P.A. Adekomaya, admitted them to bail in the sum of N100, 000 with a surety each in like sum. He added that they be remanded in prison.
Well with the rate of child abuse in the country I can understand that the parents of the baby were furious because the Chidinma tried to defile their child but personally I think they went too far.  

Meet The Man Who Trekked his Way to Stardom

Some residents of Abuja  yesterday took to the streets to jubilate following the arrival of Mallam Suleman Hasheem, the man who trekked from Lagos to the Federal Capital Territoey (FCT) in celebration of General Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the March 28 presidential poll.
Hundreds of the residents, chorusing, ‘sai Baba, sai Baba” lined the streets of Abuja to welcome Hasheem.
The man, escorted by the police, arrived in Abuja at about 5.p.m. from Suleja. At Mabushi bridge, scores of people queued for several hours to catch a glimpse of Buhari’s admirer even before his arrival.

Clad in a red jersey, black tracker and snickers, Hasheem beamed with smiles as he trekked the streets of Abuja. Apart from the shout of sai Baba that rented the air, a police van trailing him, blared siren.

He waved at the crowd, but refused to address the fans. He arrived in Minna, Niger State last week.

Hasheem left Lagos on March 30 after Buhari, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared winner by the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega.

Meet Petro. Minister Alison Madueke's Extravagant Son

Ugonna Madueke is the son of Nigerian Petroleum Minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke, who has very serious allegations of corruption in the past year. These pictures of him are from the DailyPost.

Six Countries Turn Down Petro. Minister Alison Madueke's Aslyum request

The report, dated March 2015, focused extensively on Nigeria’s general elections. It said the notorious Minister, whose impunity is known to have been closely-protected by President Goodluck Jonathan, will be coming under the microscope for the first time in her Ministerial career.
No fewer than six countries have already refused to grant an asylum request by the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, the Business Council for Africa (BCA) said in its just-released monthly report, noting that about US$ 1 trillion is the latest estimated figure of the looting of the Nigerian treasury between 1960 and 2005 alone.
The report, dated March 2015, focused extensively on Nigeria’s general elections.  It said the notorious Minister, whose impunity is known to have been closely-protected by President Goodluck Jonathan, will be coming under the microscope for the first time in her Ministerial career.
“Given her reputation, it comes as no surprise to learn that 6 countries have already refused to grant her asylum to live in their countries as she now wishes to leave Nigeria at the earliest possible opportunity,” it said.
BCA recalled President-elect Muhammadu Buhari lamenting that the rest of the world looks at Nigeria as the home of corruption, one where stealing is not corruption but a way of life, and that his administration will pursue all public offices and individuals who are believed to be guilty of corruption.
It observed that despite an earlier promise, it is now understood that Buhari’s anti-corruption fishing net will include Ministers currently serving under President Goodluck Jonathan.  Alison-Madueke’s departure from Nigeria is likely to be followed by several other PDP elders, party members and supporters as well as some former Government officials, as Buhari’s anti-corruption drive will be far-reaching.

Minister of Petroleum Alison Madueke Tries to Run Away From Her Scandals!

Barely two months to the inauguration of a new government, the fear of the President-Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari is already driving corrupt officials who wield enormous power under the out-going Goodluck Jonathan administration, out of the country. Buhari has declared that the fight against corruption will be a major drive of his in-coming administration. gathered that following her failure to get President Jonathan and ex-Head of state, Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar secure a soft landing deal for her from Gen Buhari last weekend, controversial Nigeria’s Petroleum Minister, Mrs Diezani Alison Madueke has fled the country to the United Kingdom, from where she might escape to a safe haven.
It was gathered that Diezani who has a plethora of corruption allegations against her left the country through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday aboard a British Airways flight. A reliable source in the presidential villa told that “madam had to take off far ahead of the inauguration of the government of Gen Buhari because she is scared he may turn his searchlight on the oil sector.” Ironically, the minister who is widely known to travel around in private jets had to travel this time in the first class cabin of the British Airways flight.
When contacted to confirm the Minister’s whereabout, one of her aides who pleaded for anonymity confirmed Mrs Alison-Madueke indeed left the country on Monday morning but gave a different reason for the trip. According to the minister’s aide “it is true the Hon. Minister traveled but she went to take care of her health because she has been down medically and she needs proper medical attention.”
On when the Minister will be back in the country, the aide said “no one can say when she will be back. That depends on her health and the advice of her doctors. She may come before May 29, she may decide to stay back with her children over there till anytime to take care of herself.” however learnt that the once powerful woman feigned sickness and actually pretended to be seriously sick while going through immigration at the airport departure lounge over fears that she might be stopped from fleeing the country.
Nigerians are waiting to see Mrs Alison-Madueke account for the $20 billion former CBN governor and now Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has continued to insist was diverted from the federation account by the Minister and her cronies in NNPC.
Apart from this, a group of whistleblowers against corruption has accused Diezani Alison-Madueke, of squandering millions of dollars of public funds to rent private jets for the conduct of her official activities. In a petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the group, known as Crusader for Good Governance, demanded that Ms. Allison-Madueke be investigated for her habit of spending extravagant sums to rent private jets for her official hops.
Mrs. Alison-Madueke has frequently traveled around the world in private jets since becoming a minister, first under the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and later under President Goodluck Jonathan. In addition, she often moves members of her family in private jets.
In 2010, President Jonathan appointed Mrs. Alison-Madueke to the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, the nerve center of the Nigerian economy and traditionally the vortex of corruption in a country that is widely regarded as one of the most corrupt in the world.
Since being appointed minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Alison-Madueke has become one of the most powerful Nigerian government officials. Several reports have linked her to sleazy oil deals and a penchant for wastage of public funds.
She has spent some N2 billion on private jet rentals, according to the petition submitted to the EFCC by Enugu-based “Crusader For Good Governance.” The petition was signed by Okechukwu Obiora Nnamdi, the group’s leader.
The group accused Mrs. Alison-Maduekwe of spending $300,000 on an average international trip outside of Nigeria. She reportedly spends as much as $500,000 on trips to such destinations as China, Malaysia and several North American countries, according to the petition. The petitioners listed some of the minister’s most lavish trips.
During Easter break, she flew a private jet to Dubai with members of her family at the cost of $300,000.
During President Jonathan’s visit to South Africa, she flew in a private jet that cost Nigeria $300,000.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), a government agency she oversees, maintains a Challenger 850 Visa jet which serves the minister’s needs as well as those of her family. The cost of running the jet is $500,000 per month.
Ms. Allison-Madueke went to a meeting of the Oil Producing and Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Austria in a private jet.
In addition, the petitioners alleged that, in the last two years, the Petroleum minister has never attended any meeting outside Nigeria in a commercial jet or in any of the jets maintained by the Nigerian Presidency. They stated that she had wasted more than N2 billion on the maintenance of aircraft in the last two years. They accused her of being the only minister who consistently uses private jets to arrive at destinations when the Nigerian president travels abroad.

The petition also carpets Mrs. Allison-Madueke for often doing official jobs out of her house, which means that she is frequently absent from her official desk at the ministry.
As alleged in the petition to the EFCC, Mrs. Alison-Madueke also frequently uses the services of Vista Jet, a Swiss luxury aviation company that provides jets to wealthy businessmen around the world. Vista Jet has done deals with such Nigerians as Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State and Nduka Obaigbena, the flamboyant publisher of Thisday newspaper.
Curiously, Vista Jet has a Nigerian businessman, Kola Aluko, on its board. Mr. Aluko, who once acted as Vista Jet’s West African representative, is known to be close to Ms. Alison-Madueke. “[Kola] Aluko and Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke are neck deep in the oil business,” said a source at the NNPC. “She helped him [Mr. Aluko] to land a choice allocation of pricey oil blocks through a company called Seven Energy,” added the source.
In a petition sent to the Nigerian Senate by the Delta Producing Communities, Ms. Alison-Madueke is accused of transferring the ownership of four oil mining licenses (OML), 30, 34, 26 and 42, to Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept which belongs to Mr. Omokore.
The US-educated minister was long known for her interest in wealth and social climbing. During Nigeria’s last years of military dictatorship, she was linked to several military officers, including one-time Foreign Minister, General Ike Nwachukwu (retd.) and Rear Admiral Allison Amaechina Madueke (retd.), her current husband who was once Nigeria’s chief of naval staff.
