REASON WHY PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI REFUSED TO SACK MINISTERS




President Muhammadu Buhari has said the reason why he has retained the cabinet ministers in the last three and the half years is due to their unique skill, strength and leadership qualities.

The Nigerian leader made this known on Wednesday during a speech session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) held at the presidential villa, Abuja.

Buhari said that the ministers exhibited the spirit of team work.

He described the cabinet members as a “reflection of the Nigeria we aspired to achieve”.

He said, “You will recall that when we started this journey, our country was facing numerous challenges".





“We inherited a broken economy which eventually went into recession in the second quarter of the year 2016. The situation was further compounded by insecurity and massive corruption".

"Many would have given up, indeed many outside commentators said our situation was as well as hopeless. However, we all came together and pushed forward to deliver our campaign promise to rescue our country from it parlous state".

“Although we all had a common vision, we frequently had heated debates in this room on the best way to achieve our goals. The different views are what made the decisions we took reasonable".

"It is this quality that made me retain my cabinet for a full term. Each of you in this room has a unique skill and strength".

Buhari, who thanked the ministers for agreeing to serve the nation, also urged them to be happy for contributing in various ways to the development of Nigeria.

3 MAJOR TIPS TO MAKE YOUR LONG DISTANT RELATIONSHIP WORK





In this age of technology and texting, it seems that maintaining a long-distance relationship would be easier than ever before. Gone are the days of paying such sky-high rates for long-distance calls that they need to be rationed like precious jewels. We’re no longer in the days of having to wait for your loved one to settle in with their computer to check email: Instant responses are all but demanded now; ask anyone who's in a long-distance relationship. Even though Technology can't make up for everything. The lack of regular physical proximity still seems to make many long-distance relationships as emotionally tough as ever.

 But again here are 3 major tips to make your long distance relationship work: 

Focus on quality communication. 

Interestingly enough, long-distance couples may actually be more satisfied with their communication than geographically close couples are. This may be because they realize how precious their communication opportunities are, and they generally don't have to waste words on day-to-day logistics. If you are in a long-distance relationship, you lack the ability to have a high quantity of communication compared to couples that are together in close proximity, but you do have the potential to even exceed them when it comes to quality. If you have daily bedtime conversations, for instance, give a little thought beforehand to the most important parts of your day to talk about. Realize that since you may not have the benefit of facial expression or physical touch, you'll sometimes need to be a little more deliberate in the words you use. Understand the deficits of a phone call or even a Skype session and plan accordingly to make sure you say the things you mean to say. That can help you make sure that the most important intimacy-building conversations are still being had, no matter how many states or countries separate you! 

Allow those "boring" details become connection. 

Bear in mind that a focus on quality communication need not mean you are leaving out the smaller details of your day. It is easy to grow apart if you have no clue what the daily rhythm of your partner's life is like: Who do they talk to on their lunch hour? What podcasts are they into now? What have they been trying out for dinner? How have they been redecorating their room? Who's been driving them crazy at work? Don't make the mistake of thinking that the "boring" details of your day should be a mystery to your partner. Of course, no one wants to listen to nothing but a list of minutiae, the key is staying in each other's lives enough that you have a feel for the cast of characters and contexts that make up daily living for them: This helps keep you close, even when the miles do not.

Don't put your life on hold.

There is no doubt about it: Long-distance relationships require some sacrifice. But it's important to be careful not to sacrifice more than is necessary, which can breed resentment and regret over time. This is especially risky when the long-distance part of the relationship is supposed to last only a brief period of time, but unexpectedly needs to be extended longer, whether due to military deployment, employment challenges, or unexpected financial setbacks. In these cases, one partner may have delayed or even avoided spending time cultivating friendships, interests, or hobbies in their locale, because they didn't think it was worth it and now they are a couple of years in, wishing that they at least had truly been living more fully in the meantime. It's one thing to look forward to finally being in the same place as your partner; it's quite another to postpone being truly engaged in your life until then. Make sure that you are trying your best to make the most of the life you have in your own locale, in the here and now. Don't isolate yourself, spin your wheels at work, or keep yourself from "bothering" to seek out a sense of community or purpose. Live each day fully, whether your partner is absent or not. And guess what? It will make the time apart go faster!

; BRAIDS AND THE AFRICAN WOMAN






Hair braiding is an ancient art the origin of which can be traced back to Egypt as far as 3500BC. Africans braided their hair in those days, in response to their classes, marital status, age grades, traditions, religions, ceremonies and rituals. Both ladies and gentlemen in Africa braided their hair until civilization stepped in and it became more for ladies. African ladies enjoy braiding their hairs right from the olden days to this times. One may want to know the reason behind the love of hair braiding among African ladies; some of them are listed below.
Fashion Trend; Many African ladies love fitting into the latest fashion trend especially when it comes to hair. Different braid styles come up on daily, monthly, or yearly basis, mostly on celebration periods, and they end up being the fashion trend. Majority of Africans ladies get captivated by such braids and want to look classy and up to date with the hair styles. 

Socialization and Association: Braiding of hair is a time-consuming activity which can be boring, but this boredom is eliminated by gossip between the women present at the salon. They gossip about matters that concern the heart, the society, life and for married women, children and husbands. They share ideas and give solution to one another
addressing issues among themselves. Braiding of the hair gives opportunity to women to meet and make new friends also and to strength the bond between friends.

It is widely believed that the braiding of hair increases hair growth which has been proven scientifically to be true because while braiding the hair, blood flows into the scalp and stimulates hair growth. Also, the braiding of the hair reduces breakage, knotting and tangling.
Grooming: The African hair can turn wild and unruly because of its kinky nature and rough look. In order to look decent and neat, African ladies get their hairs braided. This does not just make them look neat but beautiful and presentable boosting their confidence and self esteem.

BEAUTY OF BIG BELT ON OUR OUTFIT


Belts are one of the essential items in a lady’s wardrobe. It is very important because not only does it give fitting to an outfit, it also adds to the look. Until recently, most people fancied very small belts, but the big belts are coming back, moreso with great gusto.

There are many ways to style your big belts and slay;
-Using a belt over your kimono or big blazers gives it more definition and shape. Don’t fold that shapeless blazer inside your wardrobe for it to waste away. Just get a big ass belt and wrap it around the blazers and it will give you the oversize trend vibe.


-Create a vibe with your evening gown by adding a statement piece belt to it. It kind of sounds weird to pair a belt with a long fitted evening gown but hear me out and try it. When choosing your statement belt, make sure to go for something very edgy, that will be easily spotted like a studded belt or a print belt; better still an animal skin print, In favor of the season’s print. Adding a large accessory to a statement evening gown makes it more dramatic in a good way. Ensure to do it the right way though.

-You can also tame a busy look with a big belt. Wearing an all patterned outfit and you’re feeling skeptical about the look? Just add a big belt to it, pulling it up your waist. It will immediately add a finesse to the look, breaking up particularly loud patterns and helping you incorporate a polished outlook.

-Big belts also raise your casual look a notch higher. Sometimes you are dressed for a casual outing but you know your outfit doesn’t give you the “wow” factor you want and are used to. Maybe its a cute top and a high waist jeans or a plain cute dress? All you need is a belt. Pair that casual outfit with a belt, a big one and you’re good to go.

-Big belts set up your skirt also. I know you thought that belts were for just triyders and dresses but no. Belts can add to your skirt by taking it from okay to dope! These street style stars you see most times, don’t just do the needful but thrive on the extra. Your skirt can be fine on it’s own but just needs that belt to make it perfect.
