OH NO!!! | CHRONICLES OF AN ABUJA ROAD USER #1 | Abujagirlsjournal




I just rolled my eyes and let out a heavy sigh of frustration at the okada man that was conveying me to my busstop. "Like seriously? God, you know I hate to enter this kind of okada o.....hian!"
I should have seen the signs earlier and of course, I did see the signs but chose to ignore my instincts ( I tend to do this a lot...what about you?)

TOP SIX REASONS WHY NIGERIANS SHOULD ALWAYS VISIT GHANA | Guest Post



By: Caleb Olorunmaiye 

The West African countries of Ghana and Nigeria have an ongoing rivalry between them akin to that of siblings. From football, to politics, to entertainment, citizens of each country always want to demonstrate their superiority over the other, howbeit not in a hateful or biased manner. It is always more bants than facts. There have been several episodes, of 'social media wars' or 'Twitter Fights' between citizens of both countries that leaves us all clutching our stomach with laughter. Through it all though, it is obvious that it is all love and sport.

GETTING DUPED BY MY OYIBO LOVER | Online Dating Chronicles | Abujagirlsjournal


I was having a conversation one evening with a group of blogger-friends when one of them posted the screenshot of a message she got from a 'friend' online who supposedly wanted to send her some gift items and....voom! It brought to mind the incident that happened to me sometime in 2016 so I thought I'd share it with you, my lovely AGJ reader.

Let's get straight into the gist! Hahaha.......

I didn't

FEATURE: A CALL TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS ON PLASTIC POLLUTION | EMECHO TED




Have you  ever thought  about  how  your choices  affect  the earth's  wellbeing  and how you  can  minimize the impact  you  make on  the environment?
 How about  your health  and  that  of your children?
 How about  the  quality  of your life and  that  of other citizens  around  the world?
 How about  the air you  breathe every  second  and  the water you  drink  often? 

The wellbeing of our environment  has  being a  burning  topic  of  discussion  and  debate  all  around  the  world. Yet, it seems  that the more discussions  and  awareness are made/carried out, the more our environment  gets  polluted. 

World environment day 2018, pressing environmental concerns, beating plastic pollution, theme of 2018 world environment day, United Nations call 2018, positive impact on environment, plastic pollution, solving environmental problems, Ted Emecho, abuja based environmentalists, abujagirlsjournal, Shuga articles, Ukachi Cynthia ezinne's personal blog, abuja blogger 2018, top abuja blogs, most popular abuja blogger, growing threat of environmental degradation, immediate and long term implications of plastic pollution

  But,  why  does  it  matter to  us? What  has  happened  over the years  that  has triggered  us  to  think  about  it? Could  it  be  our unforgivable,  inexplicable,  actions?

So  I  ask  myself,  as  I  want  you  to  ask  yourself too: What  are  we not  doing  right?

RESPECT IS NOT ALWAYS EARNED, ITS A RIGHT!




I really should start respecting the feelings of my dear readers by sticking to consistency, even though I'd rather have something tangible to offer than just drop any kind of junk here for you.  And I know that the more respect I show to my AGJ readers, the more respect they'll have for my blog, it's content and every other thing associated with it (and that includes me...."giggles").
