NAIJA NEWS IN PICS

Loads of stuff have been happening in naija lately. I decided to bring you guyz the news in pics cos i know that it would take me forever to write down everything that has been going on. I have also included some pics of current " SUN GIRLS". To view more pictures of other "SUN GIRLS", visit www.sunnewsonline.com



The Nigerian Police Force have changed their Uniform from the all black to blue and black. Personally, i don't see how changing the uniform of the policemen would improve their performance & stop them collaborating with robbers. Instead of our president (Obasanjo) spending money on new uniforms, why not retain the old ones & use the money he used to get the new ones to pay the Police men so that the crime rate will go down in nigeria? I'm not impressed at all.





Governor Donald Duke has launched the Tinapa Project. The pic above is from the launching. The project includes a Tinapa Studio where i heard films can be made. As usual Obasanjo was there, with his big fat stomach. The man has the whole of naija in his belly.
Governor Donald Duke of Cross River state has really done alot. First he built the Obudu Cattle Ranch which from what i hear is amazing, & then this. I know of course he would be pocketing a bit of money but at least he as done a lot of things that we Nigerians would remember him for. I think he is a good example to most Governors in naija.






The picture above shows an unidentified Local Government official collecting Fuel as he tries to locate the point where a pipeline was vandalized in Lagos. He dosen't look like a local government officail right? Well, the picture shows fuel pipeline investigation, naija style!

The picture above shows Miss Goodnews Udom who is the reigning Miss Akwa Ibom & Miss Lacasera. What do they mean by Miss Lacasera? From what i heard, there is a drink in naija called Lacasera. Is she the queen of the drink or what? Well, the girl said that she goes everywhere with bodyguards because she gets "TOO MUCH" (mark i wrote it in capital letters) attention from guys. Who does she think she is? Britney spears????? Isn't it enough that we have to endure the fact that she is Miss Lacasera?????
This picture shows the girls dormitory at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). The dormitories have been in the news alot this days because the girls have to deal with a lot of sexual harrasment & rape from most of the guys. I feel very sorry for them. According to the news, loads of the girls have been attacked lately.
The girl in the pink top is looking at the camera as if she is going to beat up the photograper or something. The girls also live in dirty surroundings as you can see from the picture. I'm sure rats make a big part of the room furniture.








The guy in the picture above is a soldier who murdered another guy over N10 (10 naira). He entered a bus in Lagos and refused to pay the N40 bus fare because he was a soldier. The conductor of the bus told him he had to pay. The guy then payed N30 & decided not to pay the rest. An argument ensued & the soldier slapped the conductor. One of the passengers in the bus told him that he had no right to slap the conductor just because he (the conductor) told him to pay N10. The soldier turned on the passenger & stabbed him to death. Thats naija for you. Lawless!




This is a picture of today's Sun Girl. What's with the background? & didn't anyone tell her that ankle boots are not meant to be worn with the sort of dress she's wearing??? Someone call the Fashion Police!!!!



The picture above shows another Sun Girl. She's cute, don't you guys think???? I have nothing bad to say. Who agrees with me?






Ok, this is another Sun Girl. I've been trying to understand why her hands are up there then i got a brain wave! Maybe she's about to do the Matrix! What do you guys think?







This picture is just sad. This man's wife was killed by young islamists in Gombe state. I first caught the story on Chioma's blog so i checked up on it more on the internet. His wife was a teacher in a school. During an Islamic Exam test, she was the one invigilating the exam. She caught 2 boys who were cheating. One of the boys wrote an Islamic writing from the Quaran on a paper & was passing it to another boy when she caught them. The took the paper away from them and threw it away. After the exam, the boys & the class started chasing her around the school saying she descredited to Quaran. The killed her & burnt her body. She left behind her husband, a 3 yr old son & and also a 10 month old baby (with the father in the Picture). May her soul Rest In Peace. Amen.

The uniform is a psychological weapon against the 'N10' check-point harassment

Mrs Somebody said...

Yeah Donald Duke is my governor and I'm proud of him.Pity he'll be leaving soon.

Lol I remember La Casera as a drink in naija like way back in 2001-2002.
I guess the winner would get a 1 yr supply of the drink lol.
WTF..blue uniforms for the Naija popo? So they can feel like better people..abeg!!

so-obscure said...

You know, that great musician-Fela Anikulapo-Kuti...said it a long time ago--that as a country-Nigeria moves 'two' steps forward, then 'five' backward...
If you try through the achives to trace the history of police & change of uniform in Nigeria, you would discover that--this very color was used some years back...then you ask yourself: why the change then and now?
This is a clear case of 'misplaced' priority if you ask me...

Thanks Chidi for stopping by...please call again and again...
I won't say nice blog...because that would be stating the obvious!

Naijadude said...

Is changing the ppolice Uniform the solution to crime in Nigeria? arghhhh!

Nice job jare

Omosewa said...

Nice! LOL@ the girl with the ankle boots. I read about the lady who got killed, and it just too sad. OAU babes need to take care of their rooms, i didnt know so many people could live in one room, i was there once, and the rooms didnt look that big. I seriously dont get the whole Miss Lacasera thing either, i liked the apple lacasera drink, lol.

princess said...

Hey Chidi!
Great reading your blog. There is always something interesting. U even keep up to date on Naija happenings than some of us living in Naija.
I just want to clarify some of the stories.
The soldier actually stabbed a young man (bus driver on the same route). He had stopped to intervene when he saw the guy beating up the hapless conductor mercilessly(u know how soldiers take advantage of poor innocent civilians now) when the evil soldier turn on him and stabbed him in the back. The poor guy died from loss of blood before he could get any medical help.
For the lady who was killed by young Islam fanatics in Gombe state, reports have it that the students sneaked in some text books and a Koran into the exam hall and when they were found out by the teacher, she threw the books out of the window including their precious holy Koran and that was what irked them to murder her. Terrible! I shuddered when i read this story as i could only imagine what the future would be like if these are the kind of leaders we are grooming in this country.
God help us!
Anyway keep on blogging, we will only be too glad to read.
cheers.

Jem said...

lmao @ the chick tryna do a matrix. Dude! you are so funny and i have to agree.... why do the police need a change of uniform? for what????

Jem said...

Oh and i thought OAU was meant to be a very good school ?! Their dormitories look like secondary school hostels though. Our universities can do better than this.

dairy of a G said...

yo quick fast check my blog out ASAP

law_damsel said...

Im feelin dis ur gist oh...lolllll, naij police ve changed their uniform..ohhh:
did they do economics at all:wat happened to priority list..all sorts

Klara said...

Great Coverage! I agree with u on the police thing: A payrise would have been much better that new Uniforms!
That OAU Dormitory saga is heartbreakin n a time-bomb! Drastic action n I mean that should be taken..Where are the women Rights Lobby Groups??
I got so sad @ readin that story of da teacher who was killed by her pupils! Isn't it juzz depressin to see kids turnin into killers! Jeez! Where is da world headed?

Biodun said...

Thanks for much for the information, wow, its so sad about the guy's wife n the guy who got stabbed.God will us! wassup witht he uniforms, talk about priorities!!

chidi said...

thanks guyz! Glad i brought you guyz up to date with what has been happening in naija.I will try & give more gist as i get it
@ princess- thanks for correcting my mistakes.its well appreciated
@jem- just wanted to correct you on one little thing. I am a gal. but can see why you would think i'm a guy.(lol) the name chidi dosen't refer only to guyz

laspapi said...

The bit about the police uniforms- They had to change them back to blue- Try to imagine standing in the noon-day Nigerian sun dressed in all-black?
Maybe those in Russia could appreciate that but certainly not here.
The Ife picture- Pity. I went to 'Great Ife' and had great times there.

Izz said...

Eish, those Sun Galz, they need a real do and their photography director, if there is any, needs some serious skills upgrading. And the photoshoping of pics needs to be left to the pros. But the Sun Gal on chair i must say she is worth the ramp. She is simply, but so attractive and a representative of what I can say should be what African models look like. Fit yet attractive. That one is from a guy o!

Surviving with Truth said...

Oh wow! i heart goes out to the girls at the school- and the man that lost his wife. naija!

MightyMike said...

wow! you should be a news writer or sumtin..thanx for keeping us current, you should do it every now and then.

And yeh! naija campuses are in a bad shape. I Attended LASU for 1yr ('98) and it was terrible back then. i wonder how it is now. God will save us.

Thnx for stopping by :)

I like your comments on most of the issues mentioned but your language is too harsh. You need to be modest and mature. The way we portray our nation to the world matters alot. We are still growing and have to appreciate the fact that Rome was not built in a day. We all have to contribute possitively.
The aspect that affects me most is the accommodation in OAU. Is it possible you call the attention of OAU Alumini worldwide to this? Can this be a medium to bring people together? Please look into this. Many thanks and good luck in your career.

I like your page. I really think you should exercise some caution in the way you address or write about the president or your country's leadership. I am not sure where you are but I will be right to assume you know so little about your country. It shows a lot of disrespect for constituted authority, imaturity and failure to address issues from an objective point of view. Why dont u go get some lessons in writing and get details of events before posting them. Whats with the sun girl? I bet you are out of ideas ..right?

chee4fon said...

O boy eeh, i just couldnt stop laughing at this...... pls more stories abeg...........

Bravo if Nigeria Police had actually changed their uniforms from BLACK on Black to Blue on Black.
Even though majority of these policemen and women lack discipline that you'll see in other Nations of the World. I still believe that they do not deserve wearing black colored clothing in the hot temperatured weather. Why? The black color clothings attract HEAT.

Go and update your site, the news here is damn too old. This is the same problem Naija has, no new updates, everything's still the same when others have moved forward.

The posting is not worth looking at. So outdated and lack educative contents.
