On this first edition of Everyday People, we shall be looking at the Story of the "London Business Woman". Fasten your Seat Belt and Get ready to journey with us. In this journey, nothing you will not see. So, don't say that I didn't tell you oo! I am warning you before hand before you continue.

This woman is a fashion woman. Her shop dey boom no be here. She supplies clothing to so many ladies and women in town. She is a big woman in Port Harcourt. People like to patronize her because she displays quality dresses and you can hardly see anyone around you putting on that same dress. So, our London Woman was in money. It is normal and popular to see Business Women travel outside the country once in a while for business trips. They come back with all sort of goods ranging from Gold to Clothing. Some of them don't even use their personal. It is well known that going to London for shopping is like going to Idumota Market. Not difficult. You must not be a big woman to be a London Business Woman. Here are my reasons;

1. Some People start small and then build Capital to enable them travel to London or Dubai to pick Goods for their "Selected Prestige Customers". So, these women use their money to do business because they have grown their little cash. 

2. Some People raise capital through the use of Money from Spouses or Relatives. These ones have the mind and guts for business. They know what they want and they go for it. They have some Customers in mind before going to London.

3. Some People go for Holidays and then decides to pick one or two things for resale. Most of these people are Employees in different organisations. 

4. Some People use other People's Money. These ones are in two categories. The first People are the ones in the Banking and Oil Sector. They are always going for Holidays in London and Dubai and they always buy goods. They gather money from their Colleagues who wanna buy and wear London stuffs but can't raise enough Money to travel. Most times, these Business Women have been go for Holidays like those in Number 3 above and then  discover that anytime they come back, their colleagues will be all over them for what to buy from them. So, this becomes a good business opportunity for them. By the time they are going again, they will be Flying, Lodging and Shopping with "OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY". Most of them come back with stories. Some deliver. The other categories are just House wives that go for vacation with Kids and gather money from other house wives who couldn't go for vacations. 

So which of the above does our LONDON BUSINESS WOMAN FALLS?
5. Ordinary Business Women in Port Harcourt who claims to be buying their QUALITY STUFFS from London. Sometimes they use their Money and sometimes (because of their high delivery rate) they use Other People's Money. 

So, our London Business Woman Lives in Port Harcourt with her Customers majorly in Port Harcourt. This faithful, on a Monday, she traveled to London as usual. If you are familiar with Port Harcourt you will know that Wednesdays are usually "OIL-MILL MARKET DAY" where buyers and sellers from within and outside Port Harcourt come to buy and sell. Average Port Harcourt Woman Likes Oil Mill very well. No take am play ooo! I know a Banker Lady that doesn't joke with Oil Mill days. Don't tell her that I told you ooo!

So, this week, our London Business Woman was in London and two of her customers felt that things are becoming expenses. One of them planned to go to Oil Mill on Wednesday to pick some stuffs from the Aba Traders while the Other Woman decided to go to Aba that Wednesday and buy. The Later convinced the Former that Aba is less busy on Wednesdays because a lot of Aba traders will be at Port Harcourt Oil-Mill Market and most Port Harcourt Buyers will not want to travel to Aba on Oil Mill Day. 

And they traveled to Aba that Faithful Wednesday and got to where Bell-Materials are sold. If you know Aba very well you will remember that MONDAYS and WEDNESDAYS are very good days to buy OKIRIKA CLOTHES. Those are the days that the BELL is opened and TOP CUSTOMERS will select GRADE ONE OKIRIKA CLOTHES. The People that Opened the Bell will ensure that their Major Customers select to their satisfactions before allowing Petty Customers to Select. 

So, these two Port Harcourt Women went to one Okirika Shop and wanted to select but the shop owner told them to hold on let "Madam" finish her selections. They held on. Madam then lifted up her head to see those that wannna select when she is selecting. Lo and behold "all eyes fixed at each other". Then one of the women looked at Madam and said "No vex oo! Finish your selection, we have followed you to London Today". 

Our London Business Woman got back to Port Harcourt and Changed Business operating area because "ABA IS THE NEW LONDON". 


Then they found out that all that they have been buying from LONDON were actually OKIRIKA from ABA. This woman will take them to Laundry and the display in her Shop as NEW CLOTHES from LONDON. 

I know that a lot of people have been buying ABA OKIRIKA as LONDON CLOTHES. So, forget the HYPE about going to London for Shopping! All na for ABA the goods dey land. Them say if you bend down you go see Aba. No do grigri and no do nwa! 

Shebi them don do you this thing before? Abi you don catch one London Business Woman for Ariaria Market before? Share your experience with us on EVERYDAY PEOPLE!

Wetin be your experience with the LONDON BUSINESS WOMAN HYPE! 


Stay Blessed!

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for


THE RENOVATED SCHOOL DISPENSARY So, we all left FGC Okigwe in 2000. Wow! That was 16 years ago! We were known as the Millennium Set. The Y2K Set.  16 Years down the line we have seen other sets hold Reunions and Parties and nothing for our Set due to the mindset that we were not united. Although, we had been meeting each other in tranches and batches at various Universities, Cities, Countries and everywhere. Of course, clicks maintained their clicks, friends maintained their friendships and people also went different ways. With the advent of cellular phones and social media (especially Facebook), hooking up became less difficult. As we began to reconnect among ourselves through the various FGC Okigwe Groups and Pages on Facebook, memories began to rewind and flashbacks became real.  The major consequences of these Flashbacks were a mixture of anger, revenge and “yabbings” that resulted from the numerous punishments, extortion, heart-breaks and what have you that hap


My People for this Community! How una dey? Last week we started a story on Everyday People and we promised to finish the story this week.  In continuation of the story, below are the extracts from episode one: “I am saying WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE NA PALAVA E GO GET! The problem became so much that even the neighbors became so uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. This trouble is worst anytime the Man and his wife made love in the night. Our aunty R will always pick a quarrel with the wife of the house. The most painful part is that this man will just disappear leaving the two women to dig it out with themselves. If you were in the shoes of this wife what would you do? Will you allow aunty R to squat with your family in the first instance? Will you ask your husband to drive his sister away? Will you fight your sister-in-law out of the house? Will you start a prayer program for aunty R? Will, you just allow everything to pass and hope for #BetterDaysAhead?”
