Coronavirus: Lessons to learn from Davido and Chioma's Relationship

By Shadrach Bako When I came on Facebook on the night Chioma was declared Coronavirus free and saw: "BREAKING NEWS: DAVIDO'S GIRLFRIEND..." I didn't read the news.  I logged out immediately. I turned off my data. And I went to bed.  I wasn't ready for any heartbreak.  I didn't want to go to bed thinking, "Oh My God" she didn't make it." I couldn't have survived it. That's how much I love Chioma. I only read the full gist the next morning and I am glad that she has fully recovered from coronavirus. This i

Nigerian Defence Academy: The Lowest Moment of my Life and Lessons to Learn

The Lowest Moment in My Life By Shadrach Bako I was watching the news on TV the other day, and then I heard the presenter say, "Bomber."  If only she knew that the 'b' was silent, she would have pronounced the correct thing which is 'Bomer' and saved herself the public embarrassment of being the TV presenter who did not know that the 'b' in BOMB is silent.  You may not understand why I keep sharing little English grammar lessons with you on this platform. To many, I am trying to show off. Only a few read

Opinion: Christian Relationship and Misconceptions about Sex

Christian Relationship and Misconceptions about Sex. By Shadrach Bako Deception is to think that a man who loves you won't want to touch you. You hear Christian ladies say "if he loves you, he won't even think of having sex with you as a Christian." The truth is, irrespective of a man's status or religious inclinations, once he develops interest in you, the subject of wanting you is already in the wings, even though it may lie dormant." A man who loves you will definitely want to have sex with you! In fact,

Key Lessons to Learn from An Army Officer's Advice to Civilians Not Loot the Abuja NYSC Camp

The Thunderous Applause that followed an Army Officer's Advice to Civilians Not Loot the Abuja NYSC Camp and Lessons to Learn from it. By Shadrach Bako, 31.10.2020 Going by the insignia on the Officer's khaki, he is a Major in the Nigerian Army. For the benefit of those who do not know, that's a high-ranking military officer.  And going by how young he looks, it is a given that he's a graduate of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) regular course.  My point exactly is this: the major challenge between the military

Opinion: Child Rape and Molestation; Why It’s Better to Stop Kissing Your Children on the Lips

Child Rape and Molestation; Why It’s Better to Stop Kissing Your Children on the Lips By Shadrach Bako I just watched with utter disgust, the video of a 400-Level undergraduate of Lagos State University (LASU), passionately locking lips with his 3-year-old step sister.  Nobody can read minds. We wouldn't have to delve into the nitty-gritty of whether the intentions of the young man was good or bad toward the child, if some kinds of intimacy are outrightly discouraged by society. As an individual, I frown

This Is What You Need To Know About Love

By Shadrach Bako I stumbled on a post on Zane's page sometime ago that asked men to 'name 5 things a woman needs to start doing to keep a man.' My immediate response was:  'A woman doesn't need to do anything special to keep her man other than what she did to catch his attention and win his heart. A man who wants to stay will stay and the one who wants to cheat or leave will make excuses to justify his actions.' I received a lot of likes and positive replies on my comment, which made my head swell, but wha

Relationship Tips To Help Get Your Relationship Back On Track And Enable You Enjoy Love

By Shadrach Bako This is not the absence of love that ruins most relationships. Often times, it is the absence of a host of basic but essential factors such as understanding, listening, respect, care, etc, that ruins a relationship. Loving someone and not listening to them can put them off. Loving someone you don't respect can push them away from you. Loving someone and not being available for them can push them into cheating with anyone who gives them attention. As a matter of fact, love alone, in exclusio
