She went on to pay a tribute to Motown and Beyonce, saying:

 

From the Motown records that I wore out on the Southside, to the Who Run The World songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story and I know that’s true for everyone here.

Music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes our joys.

It allows us to hear one another – to invite each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters…every story within every voice, every note within every song.

‘Marriage shouldn’t be your priority if you’re not financially independent’ – Alibaba

38B1B94F-E9F4-47EF-AD59-7E34DDCA05B8.jpeg

NIgerian comedian, Ali Baba in his advice to ladies today said, ‘if as a lady, you are not financially dependent, marriage should not be your priority’.

 

He went on to say, ‘that era of being financially dependent on a man expired many years ago. Sadly, very few women started late to realise that they also had the equal personal requirements to make themselves financially independent’.

Many of the men who also believed that women should not be financially independent were also everywhere. And with time, many of those men, where in places of authority and economic positions of influence. Such men also started to see that many women were a threat to their masculinity. And did everything to block them.

Like a woman can not bail anyone arrested. Women can not rent properties. They failed to accept that women were capable of pulling their weight when shouldered with responsibilities, BUT DID BETTER THAN THE MEN, who went head to head with them. And still play their roles as women.

In school, you will remember, if you want to be honest, there were ladies who were constantly in 1st to 10th positions. And there were heavy men, who were unashamedly in the 30th to 32nd positions. That was the start. It became more glaring that women can be equally smart and even smarter. Many of these men, were in any case being taught by women, as teachers, lecturers and professors.

So, gradually, the thought of a woman being DEPENDENT ON any man started fading. Especially when the men started having them as bosses, and learning under their feet. Humbling. However, it needs to be further emphasised in these day and age, that the days of a woman being DEPENDENT are gone. Or nearly gone.

So, it’s clear, that financial instability of women is the major reason many wpmen don’t get treated like they should. It turns relationships to cash and carry or business transactions. It also then makes many men believe, that financial independence will take away their power. Only WEAK MEN think like that. And women who think they must go into a relationship because its their only way to financial stability are the ones who empower them.

On Sunday, President Buhari despatched a team to Jalingo, Taraba State, to condole with the government and people of the state over loss of lives that attended the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally last week.

 

The team, led by Boss Gida Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), included Governor of Adamawa (a neighbouring state to Taraba) Senator Mohammed Umaru Jibrilla (Bindow); Senator Ali Ndume; Mallam Mohammed Bello, Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT); Dr Ali Isa Pantami, Director-General of National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA); and Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

 

Senator Yusuf A. Yusuf, a Taraba stakeholder, was also joined the team. At the Taraba Government House, where the team was received by Governor Darius Ishaku. Mr Boss Mustapha  Speaking on behalf of the President, lamented the sad loss of eight people during and after the rally, promising that they would not die in vain.

“President Buhari will continue to focus on public good and welfare of the people. The eight people would then not have died in vain”.

“They represent the good of our people and country. They wanted good governance as symbolized by President Buhari, so they turned out to welcome him at the rally. As we go to the polls, let’s exercise the civic responsibility with zeal, but also with decency and restraint. The country is our own, and we must preserve its oneness,” the SGF said.

Responding, Governor Ishaku expressed “sincere gratitude and thanks to Mr President for promptly sending a delegation to condole with us,” adding that the people of Taraba were grateful for the show of concern.

 

He prayed that the souls of the dead would rest in peace, stressing: “Peace is my mantra. I stand by it any day. I am thankful that Mr President, who is firstly my elder brother before being my president, came to Taraba in peace, and left in peace.”

 

An official letter of condolence personally signed by the President was presented to the governor by the SGF. At the palace of the Emir of Muri, Alhaji Abbas Tafida, the leader of the delegation condoled with the monarch and the people on behalf of the President, praying that God will give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

 

In response, the Emir said it was President Buhari that needed to be condoled, since he lost his supporters, who loved him dearly. Promising not to forget the relations of the dead, Emir Tafida said he would do his best to cater for them. He also urged Nigerians to emulate President Buhari and copy his integrity and transparency.
