Nigerian Women In Government, Speak Up For Slain Students Or Resign Now

The Yobe School Killings; A Tragedy For Nigerian Mothers-

Dear Aunty Eya,
 Congratulations on your recognition as a popular African Women’s blog. I and many women like myself have learned so much from this blog. In view of the tragedy that occurred in our Country yesterday, I have decided to write to you and other Nigerian wives and mothers on this blog.
I woke this morning to the news that there was another attack on a secondary school in Yobe yesterday that left 43 children dead and I froze. Another attack! More defenceless children. Children who were in their dormitories, away from parental care and probably not under any adult supervision or protection. I began to imagine that one of those children was mine. I have just one child, I had him after six years of trying and earnest prayers. I almost lost my life in the process of childbirth due to complications.
 I imagined that I woke up and heard over the news that my son’s school was attacked by these animals. Throats slit, gunned down, burnt in a dormitory, such brutality. My baby, my precious one, who is away from me, at school!  No I can’t even think about it. I would surely slump and die or kill myself. (Lord, may our children not experience this) Yet these young ones are the babies of Nigerian women just like me.
I saw the pictures of the children who were shot and I have been crying and have not been able to concentrate at work. I just could not briefly express shock and go on  with work like my other colleagues. I have been shaken to the core, does human life not have value in our country?
 26 children were killed in the US by a madman and the whole world focused on this story for almost 2 weeks. The case was

Wives Connection Featured On City People Magazine :)

 After reading all the venom spewed about me and this blog on another Nigerian blog, I convinced myself and a few others that I needed to be off the Internet for a while. The reason I left links to blog recipes so that readers can easily find their way in my absence.

I successfully stayed off even my Facebook page cos I was really pissed. When we plan and strategize on our beds, "...God's ways are not our ways" I started enjoying staying offline, tried to catch up on whatever I missed offline and on TV sef. Was able to watch some movies from beginning to end which is very unlike me. Took time to sleep and ensure my BP is still Ok.

Enough of the blabbing!
Yesterday, I read about wives connection on City People Magazine and like magic, my energy got revived cos I told myself God is still up to something and more blessings will surely bring more "haters" (permit me to use that word). The sweet words about wives connection? You can go read for yourself o. The latest Edition.

Not forgetting that our Groundnut Soup was featured on Saturday Punch Newspaper in January, just last month. I am encouraged. To God be the glory and those who want to spew venom about this God sent blog can SPEW as much as they like. Those who feel approving such comments on their blogs will increase "comment quantity" can go ahead but as for me. I cannot count how many comments I take down from this blog when I see that a bitter soul is trying to rubbish another blogger. Some people discovered wives connection after reading that venom about the blog, they searched for the talked about blog and it turns out they like WC and are leaving good comments on older posts, happy that they found the blog. 

To some, it might just be a "Dog eat Dog world"  but for me, I know how good a few older bloggers have been to me and this blog and so, I will always try my best to encourage newer/younger bloggers to grow and not faint. Anyway, to each her own.

Once Upon a time, Madame Sting published a post on her blog rubbishing this young blog and Oh my, come and see how

Why You Must Read Your Food Labels. A Must See!

What Do You See on this label?

We are told to ALWAYS read labels, but, do we? 
This was shared on Facebook by Natural Nigerian's Photo and it shook me to my bones. I have been careless with reading labels. All I am mostly interested in is

I Am Gay, Lesbian, What Would You Do?

So much is happening right now. The Anti-Gay Bill, the fights on blogs between supporters and non supporters, the sudden support and likeness of President Goodluck Jonathan and the anger too by some. Times are changing so fast it's scary abeg.

I took my time to read comments on different blogs and I know fully well that by posting this, some commenters will want me to say my stand and not stand on the fence. I asked myself what would Jesus do? I cannot condemn anyone created in God's image and likeness, who am I to even judge them. HOWEVER, Truth is, I agree completely with

Wives Connection Ideas For 2014 By Deborah Bala

Hi anty and WC, I got some ideas for 2014, you know me am a foodie! Love cooking and trying new things. Why do we suggest the whole house (those that are interested in the food aspect) each month lets bring a new category of food. Learn and send in recipes etc.

That way we all learn and have fun. This won't exclude the normal sending of recipes as you wish. But I feel it will bring back the food aspect as some people started coming to the blog because of the food. What do you guys think?

 We can start with

ONLY A THOUGHT by Omalicha

I am not saying there is no God. There is a God. The big bang theory and the evolution theory don't even make sense to those who propounded it. There is absolutely no definition for the Universe and all that is in it. There is a God and if I say he is awesome,that will be the ultimate understatement of all time.

   But I want "us" you and me to take a little while and imagine this; what if there was no "heaven and hell" the way we understand it to be? What if when you die, you die. Like that's it. That's the end. There will be the sudden

Debate: Christians, For Or Against Wearing Leggings

A female dancer on leggings
Hello Eya, please share this argument in support and against wearing leggings...

St. Josemaria Escriva...

Leggings make it look like you aren’t wearing
anything to a guy. This is the most fundamental
reason you should not wear leggings as pants. Men
are visual creatures, you see. They are as attuned to
their eyes and images as women are to emotions
and feelings. When they see an image, their brains
are simply wired to react to them, most of the time
in a lustful or harmful way if the image is

Tears Of Nigerian Children

I see the tears of Nigerian children. I hear their wailings. I feel the agony of their childhood. Have they not been maltreated, abandoned, abused, neglected and sexually exploited long enough? Are their wailings not

Will You Allow Your Husband Have Access To Your Social Media And Mail Accounts?

I went on my facebook page and after what took me like forever; I eventually managed to change my display picture. My friends have been telling me to change the picture; hence, I decided to do so and also add a few things on my facebook page. Barely few mins later, my friends started liking and leaving all manner of comments. I decided to check who was online, as I had quite a bit of time on my hands so that I could catch up with some people.
A friend of mine who had

A Happy Marriage/Relationship Is Just GoodLuck

So many good women and even men find themselves in sour marriages while those you think should never get married are seen flourishing and living the "happily ever after" Who says getting a good husband or wife is all about being good? Vigilant, being a virgin or being overtly submissive? Luck is involved in the happenings of events and situations in this life. Haven't you seen very good girls who read all the great books on marriage while still single, get all the counselling that is needed, even teach other singles what to do to get good husbands, however, when their time comes, they make the gravest mistakes. Or have you not seen very rough runz girls who sleep with every lecturer at college, jump from one guy to the other, visit all the night clubs in town and live like there is no tomorrow having the best and sweetest marriages? Good children and comfort all round?

Luck is one ingredient that is necessary in life. Without it, all your hard work may just yield very poor harvest. Without it, the one you feel is the best man on earth will begin to change into a stranger just one year after marriage and the woman you married a virgin just becomes the greatest cheat having affairs with  colleagues at work.

The lucky do not have to pray

He Said They Said

Of course, I don come again…
I’ve been trying to keep my weight under check as each visit to the stores reveal the obvious I really don’t like, to me. I know it’s just lack of discipline as I’ve been working on that theoretically for a while now.
There is this new gym in my estate and the funny thing is that

Not All Closed Doors Are Bad

Have you ever wanted something so bad but met a closed door? Sure you prayed about it really hard, even had to fast about it so much but the door remained locked shut.
Well, welcome to my world. I’d like to share a story with you as regards closed doors.
“I had my life planned out before me and the next step in my books after my BSc. was Masters in the UK.
In my books, I had to work for a while to raise at least half of the tuition and I worked rather hard for a young girl and raised the required £4000 in about a year.
By June, I had paid the initial

Before You Say I Do

Hi guys decided to share a few of my thoughts on this issue this is owing to the fact that so many people get it wrong and eventually end up sad. Lemme give a short analogy to explain the entire point I want to make. Imagine two daughters have the same father daughter A holds her fathers hand and asks  him to help her when its time to cross the gutter, he does exactly that and she crosses it safely, daughter B decides to cross on her own, as she crosses it she falls down she cries out to her father and he will certainly come to her aid. But will coming to her aid change the consequences of the fall? NO Well it's the same with marriage no matter what you need Gods direction to enable you sail through. Marriage is so important that the devil is never happy for you to get it right. The ultimate key is seeking Gods face, find out his plan for you first, single ladies pls single hood is not the time to be desperate but the time to develop capacity, for marriage. 

Ladies you are so precious that even the sons of God saw the daughters of men and marveled at what God created, don't turn yourself into a pity bag. Take that time to invest in yourself, the truth is if you don't know if you are a square, triangle, round or circle type of lady you won't know what type of man can fit into you perfectly. If you are a triangle woman how do you think a square man can fit into you. Many times we don't even know who we are because we have spent so much time becoming like our friends or what society wants us to be, then we start searching for the man we want, pls know that the man you want is not necessarily the man you need.

 God can speak to you through dreams, visions, his word, people around you, but because God spoke to sister A through a dream doesn't mean he will speak to you the same way. Once

They Are All Still Very Much Around Except One

Good day!
 Hope this mail meets you well. Though you might not be conversant with me, I am a regular on your blog.
 Plus, I am not sending this mail for you to publish or for it to generate arguments of any kind. I just wish to know some things.

 For some weeks now, I have noticed some particular persons' absence on your blog (wivestownhallconnection), people like ace bentley, ahdaisy jayde, some great anonymous and of late my personal person- Deborah Bala. I want to know if they have ported to your new blog( I have forgotten the name of that one).

 I will also want to know why ( I know it's none of my business) but some of us learn a lot from these people and always look forward to their take on issues. I understand why you had to open a new blog but can you @ least advise these persons to still grace your old blog with their presence or let me know the new blog so that myself and my friends will stop visiting the old blog.
I look forward to your response.
An admirer!!!!

Let Tonto Dikeh Be: Judge Not

I visited The Superwoman blog this morning and read this. It made me sober and I felt it won't be a bad idea to share with you guys. Read on:

read with great distress tonight, a story by blogger Linda Ikeji in which she stated that Nollywood actress/musician Tonto Dike had attempted to commit suicide some weeks ago. She stated that the picture (shown above) was Tonto's way of sharing what happened with her fans on instagram. I read this with great distress because like many other Nigerians i have always found it easy to diss and laugh at Tonto mainly because i have been led to believe that she really doesn't care. 
When i read this story tonight, i thought to myself 'Tonto is human after-all'.

I lay no claims to knowing the exact thing that may have happened to push her over the edge so much so as to attempt suicide, but i must admit that i realised tonight how tough it must be to be Tonto.

In her own way she struggles just like anyone else to be successful at what she does, she tries to lay her hands on new ventures and gives it her best shot regardless of what anyone says. Isn't that what we tell ourselves all the time? If at first you don't succeed, try again, and even when you fall pick yourself up and try yet again? Objectively speaking this is who she tries to be, that woman who sets goals and tries to achieve them regardless of what any body thinks, that woman who tries to
