One incident that gave my dad a leg-up in his business was when someone slumped and there was no heartbeat, my dad performed CPR and revived the person before rushing him to the hospital. That singular act, made everyone go to him for solutions to their health issues.

The uncertainty of life can happen to anyone, be prepared and ready to adjust when there’s an upend in life. Nothing seems to be permanent.
That, is the summary of my life.

Growing up in the northern part of Nigeria is a side of my story that I will always treasure.
My dad lived in a community in Kaduna, he used to be a chemist man whose business thrived because he was everyone’s go to when they fall sick. He is not a trained pharmacist neither is he a medical person but from his life story he told us, he learnt the trade (the usual Igbo apprenticeship system) from his community man living in another part of the northern community, whose business excelled too. My father was good with drugs that he knows drugs to give when there’s a health issue(s) except for very serious cases.

One incident that gave him a leg-up in his business was when someone slumped and there was no heartbeat, my dad performed CPR and revived the person before rushing him to the hospital. That singular act, made everyone go to him for solutions to their health issues. They see him as their doctor and even referred to him as a doctor. If my dad tells a patient to go to the hospital, just know that it is a serious issue. The people were always afraid when my dad refers them to the hospital because it means the case is serious.

Aside being their doctor, my dad is also a counselor, settling family feud, and he was involved with the affairs of the community like he is a northerner. He bagged a title conferred to him by the community head.That, is how prominent he is.

My father bought properties in KD, was taking care of his family, his siblings and parents because he was doing well financially even though he’s not the first son confirming the Igbo adage that the person who is able should bury his or her parents it mustn’t be the first son. We had very good upbringing and my dad is a disciplinarian who made sure we’re well behaved. He also doesn’t joke with his parents and siblings.

My father traveled to the village to see his parents as it is his duty every six months, he met his elder brother and family who returned home because things were very difficult for them in the city and they couldn’t keep up, reason they returned, to see if they can find their feet.
My dad was disturbed and asked why he didn’t call to inform him so he can move to Kaduna with his family instead of the village. He called my mom to inform her that he’ll be bringing his elder brother to our house in KD, to stay with us till he finds his feet and move his family.
My mom agreed because she is family oriented and a woman that sees her husband’s family as hers and carries everyone along.

My uncle Dubem arrived Kaduna and was receiving training from my dad and helping him out in the business. Uncle Dubem started going out with women. Every morning when we all leave the house including mom who sells Ankara in the market. Uncle Dubem will tell my dad he wants to go see a friend, he will take our house key without my dad’s knowledge and bring in women, sleep with them and go back to the shop. The day he was caught, he pleaded to my parents to allow him bring his wife and children to Kaduna as it will make him stop womanizing. My parents gave their consent and made financial arrangements and prepared the boy’s quarters for them, that became the beginning of our distress days.

MY HUSBAND HAS NEVER MADE LOVE TO ME IN OUR 1 YEAR OF MARRIAGE

Published

on

I am 27 years old. And I got married to my husband who is 34 last year and it was a marriage I prayed for to happen because I love him.

Dee loves me too and he sacrificed a lot for my happiness when we were dating. He is a church guy, that’s why I agreed to marry him. We practiced no sex before marriage. He joined our church and we met and liked each other. Our pastor blessed the marriage. On the night of our wedding, I was all ready for my husband to touch him. He told me to relax. I went to bed with my phone trying to reply to messages as I waited for him. As I was pressing my phone, I heard my husband moaning like one who was making out. He was sitting on the couch watching a movie on his laptop. I looked in his direction so I could know what was happening. I found out my husband was masturbating. I went closer to his position and he was watching porn, gay porn.

I was shocked but I didn’t make him feel like it was bad. I jokingly told him that he should focus on me but he rejected my advances and that felt like the beginning of the end for our marriage. After 3 weeks in  I asked him what the problem is, my husband said he enjoys watching porn more than making love to a woman. I asked him why he married me and he said “So the world won’t question his sexuality.” My husband opened up to me that he has never made love to any woman in his life and he would rather be with a man but was too afraid to make that move so he reverts to porn instead.

I became speechless and weak. One day, he went out and bought me toys to use on myself whenever I needed someone inside me, or I could go outside and get to from one particular guy. He promised to pay me a huge monthly allowance which he has begun in exchange for my silence or if I defy him he will ruin me and my family.

The thing is because Dee is very wealthy he took care of not only me during courtship by my entire family, established a business for my parents, put my siblings in very good and expensive schools, and upgraded our entire lives including our family home.

The thought of paying him back financially is not even possible as we can’t afford it as a family. It’s been a year and I am suffering as I feel too guilty to cheat as well and can’t leave because my family is so stuck in a sexless marriage.

It’s so bad people have begun to notice I’m unhappy and keep asking me but I am trying to protect the image of my husband. I am craving intimacy but afraid of going outside of my marriage even though my husband has given me permission, as well I’m unable to leave at least not yet, what can I do? How can I survive?

Please what should I do?much pain  in my heart

Hmmmmm  this one choke

‘Aunt, I’m asking for help. ‘Aunty, please help me. It’s not money that I want; I just need you to buy me exercise books for school – 12-year-old boy named Ernest Make a Viral Headline Request

“I met a 12-year-old boy named Ernest who approached me and said, ‘Aunt, I’m asking for help.’ Initially, I hesitated and ignored him, but he persisted, saying, ‘Aunty, please help me. It’s not money that I want; I just need you to buy me exercise books for school.’ He explained that he lives with his grandmother and younger brother, and his grandmother’s legs are swollen to the extent that she cannot walk. He told me he attends a small community primary school and has no one to provide him with books, although he already has a uniform and shoes from the earnings of the odd jobs he’s been doing.

We went to a shop in the market, and I bought 10 exercise books for him. The boy was overjoyed and said, ‘Aunty, they’ll last me the whole year until I write my final exams.’ He shared that his grandmother used to sell vegetables to support him and his brother, but her swelling legs prevent her from continuing, leaving him with no choice but to walk to town every day to seek help or find work if available to earn money for food.

His eloquence and the details he shared in such a short time amazed me.

Please, let’s not ignore those who ask for help, as some truly need it. I’m glad I could extend a helping hand to this little boy in the best way I could.”
