“Nigerians pls when buying rat poison, go for the “K!ll and Dry” so that if paraventure the rat disturbing u gets to d!e in someone else’s house or environment, it wouldn’t smell or decay. Let’s help ourselves abeg cos most of these mumu rats tend to d!e in the ceiling.”
“If u are an elderly person, normalise respecting ur old age by acting maturely; Learn to approach people without being rude, & stop with the “I’m not ur agemate” boring speech when someone gives u a clapback for being insensitive. Respect is reciprocal, no-one is entitled to it.”
“Pls to whom it may concern, learn to return people’s plates & cutleries after eating, wash first then return; Don’t be ungrateful. When someone gives u food, he or she didn’t dash u the plates & cutleries to keep in ur house. Seizing people’s tablewares is the same as stealing.”
“If u are a car owner learn to give church members a lift after service, even if it’s to the nearest junction; That’s also a way to attract God’s blessings. Don’t just honk ur horn at people & drive off when there are empty seats in ur car, that’s rude.”

“Life saving tips for first time Lagosians: -Shine ur eyes, ask questions & don’t dull. -If someone shows u craze especially in public, activate the werey in u. -Learn how to jump or climb fast cos buses barely stop for passengers. -Don’t shine ur teeth when pricing things.”
“U mustn’t drive a brand new car, buy new TV or electric appliances, go for tokunbo (if getting a brand one will shake ur bank acct); At the end of the day, they all serve the same purpose & most times the tokunbo lasts longer. Life can be easy but only if u live within ur reach.”
“Churches should use the money spent on printing free daily devotional books, to purchase & share foodstuffs instead; Cos most people don’t even read the books. Besides, people hear the gospel everyday, but majority are facing hunger. They should win souls by acts of kindness.”
