Thought they said patience didn't have a child os her own that goodluck has a second wife that bore him kids? Na wa 4 naija and rumors, that's how they said stella obasanjo's son was an imbecile

awww they are soooooo cute!

Anonymous said...

what are you on about???...it is no secret that Patience was unable to bare chidren so these children were obviously adopted. Whats all this he looks like him rubbish he got swags???? They are not their biological children.

Whoever said Urhobo...its IJAW! Thanks musch.

Another confirmation that every Igbo has a price tag. From first lady has done it again (gramatical errors), umblerra, to 'sweet first lady'. Now we know that Linda is the officiial PR consultant for mrs umblerra. Can you understand why PDP will continue to hold sway in the South East.Sice you got to that Enugu, you have been misspeaking. You had better leave that Enugu and return back to Lagos before your people kidnap you.

sakara said...

if am not going to be crucified those kids look adopted...yeah i cant believe that girls s Jona's first child and the boy his 2nd...no way! hey they dont even look like them...this is just phototrick for us to think all s cool.....am sorry my opinion cause am not bling...not even a single resemblance kilode???

Alicia says... said...

WHO CARES IF THEY WERE ADOPTED! THATS EVEN BETTER. what a wonderful thing for them to have done is to give children love and shelter. some bad belle people sef. and who the hell mentioned Urhobo? OH MY GOD SOME NIGERIANS DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THEIR OWN PRESIDENT IS FROM! the guy is from Bayelsa, and we all know Bayelsa people are Ijaw. sheesh.
and for the idiot that commented at 5:27 PM, you are a big fool! that is exactly why you hide under anonymous to insult Igbos. how the hell did Igbos enter this matta? so because she blogged about them she has now been "SOLD"??? Linda, its comments like that which leads me to believe not every comment should be uploaded. see as an idiot is venting and now mentioning kidnapping. what a dunce.

People are ignorant. If a couple isnt able to have children, they automatically blame it on the Woman. Do your research, men have infertility problems too!

Anonymous said...

They are adopted and so what? All of una sef. Listen before you come to this blog and start talking about having biological children and adopting children, ensure you are married and have conceived on ur own..and show us proof it was all your effort and God did not assist! What rubbish! Yes she did not have any biological children so what? However the children came about, should it be our problem? Jesus Christ of Nazareth! And for those of you that were able to conceive and bear children on your own strength as Jehovah wey una be.....I am so sure, the kind of limelight this family has seen, most of you have never seen....how many first family we wan get again? Summary is this: when it comes to issues of life such as getting married, staying married, having kids, life and death...it is not of your own accord and please quit being all judgmental about it. See them talking like it was her fault or something that she has no baby biologically...even if it was..ka gini mezie? And before you all start calling me a hater bla bla bla.......I am a well placed career woman in the health sector, married with kids. The Difference? I have seen so many people boast with these things and they later turn to vanity biko..........

lol i heard that patience couldnt bear a child for jonathan...hmmn nawa for naija rumours sha

Alicia says... said...

but why is it always the WOMAN?! how are you people so sure Jonathan doesn't have a low sperm count? WOMEN, WE ARE OUR OWN WORST ENEMIES!

Anonymous said...

Their kids are adopted as Patience was unable to conceive naturally. perhaps she should lose some weight? that may help.
GEJ also has another child with his bit on the side... it is an open secret.

hahahahaha @ anon 4.56pm...na so we see am oo...lool

Those are my children....not patience's!

So what if they could not have their own biological children. At lest have been kind enough to take on some unfortunate kids and obviously given them a much better life.
Would marrying a second wife have been better? Please let us be happy and rejoice with people who are rejoicing for a change

Linda your blob is one of a kind.
My fellow nigerians and others that wanna be nigerian EEEEEEEEEHH.

The power of brown envelope after a lunch with President. So we should expect to see more of Jonathan on Lindaikeji blogspot.

Alicia says... said...

oh gosh, here we go again....

Anonymous said...

Linda, you have been totally bought! All that activism you did in the past was just a notice me to get Jonathan to give you a piece of the pie. Suddenly you have made a U-turn and he is now the best thing since slice bread. I couldn't believe your post regarding the bribe that was dished out at the youth forum with GEJ. You sure do have your price and you have totally gone down in my estimation. I guess you really wanted your own Brazilian weave and rock Loboutins like Genevieve does. You are all one and the same! Sheesh!

Linda Ikeji said...

@non 7:27 and others...I've been bought because i put up their pics? some of u crack me up. this is news because no one has ever really seen a photo of their children...that is why this picture is here...but think what u like...i will do me.
cheers

Eni said...

Linda i love you so much. It`s one of two things it`s either you no get shame( girl u started posted everything) or you truly believe what you wrote abt dis whole bride thing.
Me for one i`m getting tired of it all. If there is someone i would like to make money and eat out of this national pie, it would be you my dear cos u give me free entertainment. I pay TV licence in london and some weird ass tax in nigeria. Let my part go to you hun.

TheJunkie said...

Awwwww..... :)

Anonymous said...

@Linda, I love you, I really do. I didn't at first but after reading so many personal inspirational posts by you, I got to respect you and you gave me so much hope in Nigerian youths. I liked the way you used to say it as it is while in the midst of it, being polite. However, these latest escapades of yours have got me thinking - really. Like you said, you would do you. I wish you all the best but I know now to take your opinions as pinches of salt and not as gospel as I did in the past. Wish you all the best anyways.

Tatababe said...

Very nice.

Linda Ikeji said...

let me state here again that i didn't receive a dime at the lunch with the president. they said wait behind and i didn't bother. i went home. but let me state here again, that if an envelope with money had been brought to my table as thanks for coming, i wouldn't even think twice about it..i will collect it and i have absolutely no apologies for that. i'm just being honest. and i have absolutely no doubt in my mind that most of u would too.

it doesn't mean that i will not speak up when something is going wrong. it doesn't mean that my conscience has been bought...far from it. it just means that my time has been paid for. do u know how much i make every hour i sit in front of my computer? You guys should pls rest this matter....

sorry i'm not telling u what u want to hear, it would have been easier to say that i would have rejected the money but I'd rather be honest with you all.

i will never collect bribe...but i will collect 'thanks for coming', which this was...:-)

Anonymous said...

People are so wicked! It is God who gives.
First of all, you don't know that Patience couldnt have kids!!! A lot of men have infertility problems too!

Regardless, this is a couple that has stuck together through thick and thin! A lot of couples with MANY children, ended up in divorce!!

They are happy, they are successful, the children are beautiful and they are the FIRST family. Trust me, they are very very happy! So you don't need to be sorry for them

God has blessed them immensely. Let's hope you achieve up to half of what they have.

PS- Go and educate yourself. Men have infertility problems too!

Anonymous said...

@Linda,

when ever has a bribe being tagged a "bribe", anyway? It's always a thank you for something, isn't it? So I guess whichever way you choose to dress it up, it is still what it is. Why should you have to be paid to air your views or to make a contribution into the uplifment of issues that pertain you as a citizen, anyway? Your priorities are obviously misplaced and I think I have a clear understanding of why you started this blog in the first place. I guess that the bottom line is that we are collectively corrupt and that we should stop placing people on a pedestal because money would always put them to shame. Do you Linda, na you get you afterall and you only have your conscience to answer to.

gbenga said...

Linda i think i am a bit disappointed that you are replying these annoying people.This is the same way they criticized Dbanj for interviewing The President.Believe me,i would sit back and collect my money if i were you.They were just being jealous they were not Dbanj or Linda

Anonymous said...

Abegi all of you going about yapping that linda has been bribed, go take a cold shower and cuddle up to a transfomer, if i see naija money, i go collect cos na part of my right, what's wrong with you all? How many times will she come out and say she got nothing, but no, you guys always have to talk about it even when the post is totaly unrelated, na linda wey dey post all comments wey dey insultive to her for her blog, if na me, any slight semblance of insult on my person, that comment will not see the light of the day i swear. I for one has never seen goodluck's kids and i think that's d purpose of this post and not inulting the lady that bbrought the pictures to us. But seriously, no smoke without fire, are this not his kids? Pls someone fill me in joor

Anonymous said...

Linda, i respect your honesty, but it still doesn't make your stance right. You saying you will collect over and over again makes me squirm. This is the sort of attitude that Jonathan & co love... you shouldn't collect even if you feel your time deserves it. You were not there to 'collect' nor were you forced to give your time. Again you were not told before hand that you'll be reimbursed. How dd they calculate the amount for transport? It's not you guys that is the problem, but their motives... you are now acting as a willing tool and i tell you 'collecting' will taint you, big time. I am glad you didn't collect, but as you see nothing wrong with it, then you have no moral right to judge/condemn Dbanj and nollywood stars or pastors with private jets etc... because they are not receiving 'bribes' either, they are like you just 'collecting'

RELATED TO THE SECOND WIVE said...

PLEASE AND PLEASE AND PLEASE THEY ARE NOT ADOPTED OH. THEY ARE HIS KIDS WITH THE OTHER WIVE. PLS OH THEY ARE HIS KIDS. HE LOVES PATIENCE ENOUGH TO STILL BE WITH HER EVEN WITHOUT CHILDREN AND NEVER DISPLAYED HER FROM BEING THE FIRST WIVE. SO SHE IS THE FIRST WIVE AND THE KIDS ARE HIS FROM HIS SECOND WIVE.

Very nice!!

Patience isnt their biological mother though but I hear they are GEJ's. Beautiful kids, funny how we havent seen pics of them before.

Anonymous said...

Linda

You are such a fool it's not even funny.

THIS attitude of yours is EXACTLY what's wrong with NIGERIA......that "entitlement" thing.

Believing you are owed that slice of the pie.

Then you go around labelling yourself some kind of voice for the youth or some one who carries the pain of what naijas go through.

Your act is so transparent.....weird thing is,some of us saw right through you from day one.

Your blog was only a carefully orchestrated plan by which you wanted to thrust yourself into the public eye,gain the attention of those you feel would "require" your services, I.e. " renumerate you" ( read as bribe) for your precious time.

I would never trust you in a position of power,because if a Ghana- must go bag of money should pay a visit to you in the dead of the night from the appropriate quarters,you would gladly welcome it.

In some instances a sensible,disciplined person would ask the important questions WHY,WHAT For,WHERE from,..
and not your dumb response that you would have collected it.

Tell me how are you different fro the corrupt people who eat into our system daily?

The difference is probably a couple of hours by which you left early.

You just totally went down in my eyes,and trust me,some of us always watched you with one eye open.


Don't worry,shout loud enough,and maybe another government event might happen and you Luke be invited.
That time around,remember to wait behind and collect your money.
Least knowing you,the 50k would have made a LOT of difference in your life.

Shameless girl.

God bless them. I really have a soft spot for them. God give him the wisdom to lead the Nation.
And if he truly adopted those kids, thou I doubt, I think look like him and the boy looks like Patience by the way, I really think he has a good heart. God bless Jonathan, God bless Nigeria

Dee dee said...

Linda, I have been reading your blog for only a month or so and it has already become my daily obsession. Being based in the UK, it is my main avenue of staying connected to goings-on in Nigeria.

While I don't agree with everything you do (e.g. posting pictures of yourself and seeking people's validation), I find your blog entertaining and I respect you for your honesty about the 'renumeration' issue. Due to the ingrained culture of bribery and corruption in Nigeria it is difficult to ascertain whether the money allegedly distributed was intended as an innocent remuneration or a bribe. However, as you stated I'm not what the benefit of bribery is to GEJ after he has already been elected as president for the next 4 years. Perhaps I'm just naive.

Anyways, keep up the good work and please use whatever avenues you have to improve our country. I hope that I can make a positive change in the near future.

Ade_Cool said...

You still missing the point..do you know how much money some people miss per day from seeing their family's in 9ja..It's a matter of choice..

As someone rightly pointed out to you unless you not reading your posts is you should never have left your desk in the first place..it was your CHOICE to go!!..
What you trying to justify is everyone should be reimbursed for trying to air their views on the state of the Nigerian Youth..This was after you all stuffed yourself silly on the offerings at Eko Hotel..where did you Attendees think the honey pot came from??

Now PDP campigns thats a whole different story even though it's still the national cake..
If them Dbanj and Genny&co can be put on blast so can the so called Youth Leaders..not saying you did but you erred by justifying it..so don't get all catty and flustered when confronted!!..

Ogo said...

Nice one Linda...u dnt even need to explain shit to any Hater! Go girl u rock..... Haters gonna Hate....

Ade_Cool said...

We need to get out of the mindset that people cannot adopt what's wrong with 9jas sef!!..we sound so 19th century with some of our utterances..we really need to evolve..for some reason some couples cannot conceive..its not a crime to adopt..they should be applauded who knows they might serve as the poster family that changed the face and attitudes towards adoption..
Just waiting to see what GEJ would do..don't want to put him down 'cos he might surprise us though he's becoming too fond of stuffing enough people's pocket with brown envelopes..GEJ the campaign is over get down to the nitty gritty..

Anonymous said...

They are here celebrating and 9ja is in a mess. No water, light,education,road,health care and the list goes on and on. There is nothing to celebrate about so please take these pictures down from your site it is irritating.

These are adopted kids and not their own but at least they gave them a home which i think every 9ja child deserves and let us hope that jonathan would look at the plight of youths in 9ja and do something meaningful for them.

As for your going to the youth launch and saying you make no apologies for collecting the envelop if it had reached your table well i am shcoked that you made that statement. Weather you like it or not it is a bribe full stop take it or leave it!!!

Linda Ikeji said...

alright, i'm done talking about this...abuse me all u like....

I just i wish i'd waited to collect my own brown envelope, it would have made all this insult worth it. but no hard feelings, i appreciate ur feedback. peace y'all!
*wink*

Anonymous said...

I don't know whether or not they are Patience's biological children but I have no doubt that they are really her children because I have met this wonderful family- Patience has done such a fantastic job with them- they are so well behaved and very respectful too- well done Mrs Jonathan and God bless you!

Linda Ikeji said...

let me even state here, i was invited sometime in feb or march to meet with the president, there was this gathering at eko hotel ...i didn't even reply their email or text messages...i didn't go. i didn't think he was worth my time...that was when he was seeking re-election.

but this second invitation was after he had won the election...there was nothing much at stake here. i went there, listened, saw everything that happened and left.

I will never sell my conscience to anyone, for anything, no matter what...but pls feel free to think what u like about me...i'm fine with that!

theyinx said...

dear 'related to the second wive',
the singular for the word wives is wife. there is no such thing as 'wive'. thank you.

Chi said...

If the kids aren't her biological kids, so? Since when was being a mother strictly defined as/restricted to one who gave birth to the child? The woman who abandons her baby in a refuse dump, is she a true mother? What of the woman who indulges more in having a flock of lovers sometimes bringing them home to the presence of her children, is that truly a good definition of a mother??? A real mother isn't just one who gives birth to a child but raises that child right and sees to it that the child has the basic love, attention and needs that he/she deserves. That is a mother!

Nigerians should quit this myopic thinking and attitude towards adoption and get it into their heads that just because you can conceive doesn't automatically qualify you as a mother. I've got a kid, he isn't mine biologically but I raised that kid like my very own offspring, I have every right in this world to be called his mother! End of story!

Anonymous said...

@ linda, the problem is not that you honoured the invitation, the problem is the fact that you justify this clear public waste of money and in such a crude fashion. it shows a sincere lack of principles & values which unfortunately permeates the vast majority of nigerian people. it is more painful when so called 'progressive youths' like yourself crudely defend that which is indefensible. Stop it and admit you erred.

Alicia says... said...

LINDA, WHY DID YOU EVEN OPEN UP ANOTHER GIANT CAN OF WORMS?! you already replied those idiots on the other blog post, so leave that issue there. there is NO reason why these pictures should be having so many comments on something it has NOTHING to do with. Linda, you should have left that shit on the other thread, now people want to attack you again. UGH!

"LEAVE LINDA ALONE!!!!"

bhookey said...

Na wa o, how is it a bribe after he's won the election. Also it's inauguration day today, he's the president, he's on the cover of this day style, y can't she blog about it? Nigerians r funny sha

Linda Ikeji said...

A group representing Goodluck Jonathan came to me in march to place a 'vote for GEJ' advert on my blog...i turned it down. they were going to pay me in dollars and i said i don't do political ads...some of u might have seen the ads on other platforms. i turned my back on it...and trust me, that money was way more than 50k

when i was invited in feb/march to a lunch with the president, i didn't even bother replying their mail.

but this time, it was different. the man had already won an election.

If the youths of this country had been planning a protest against the govt and the president had gotten wind of it, called for a ‘lunch’ and given out envelopes....that’s bribe.

If he had been seeking re-election, called for a ‘lunch’ and given out envelopes....that’s bribe.

But that was not the case in this situation, he wasn’t looking for any favours from us, that is why i went this time and i keep saying the supposed envelopes which i never saw, is ‘thank u for coming’, which i personally do all the time when people come see me. Which our older and richer relatives and friends do to us when we go see them.

How long did i carry the killing of the youth corpers on my blog? how many times have i criticized this president on this same blog?

u say we've been bought? ok, wait and see now abi?

And did someone say i’m no longer a youth? I’m 30yrs old, doesn’t youth end at 35? U people are beginning to really annoy me. like most of u wouldn't have collected the envelope...make i hear word abeg.

keep abusing me and see if i won't ban you from this blog...

Oh btw, i make 1dollar for every hour i sit in front of my computer, so imagine what 50k would have done for me...lol

i'm done talking about this jor...abuse me all you like...i stand by what i wrote...i'd rather be honest with you guys than lie just to be in ur good books.
adios.

cococj said...

I don't see how these kids are adopted. The boy looks like the mother and the girl like the father. And one thing I know and feel is that concerning Nigerian politics Linda has a neutral standpoint 'Seeing is believing.' With the influence she has gained I'm sure she wouldn't risk it for simply bribery. So please put all these claims to rest!

If they adopted the kids nko? what is the problem with that? Is Chelsea Clinton not an adopted chid to the Clinton's? They look good and happy on that picture and that is what is important.

I dey laugh o! Linda, so e dey pain you eh?
You, who regularly puts people on full blast on your blog so anyone can year them to pieces so you feel good? You have a warped, igbocentric, bribeilous mentality! Really? Who would have thought? You just shot yourself in the foot with your stupid explanation and you know karma is a biatch! Your time is worth 52k$ you, Linda living in surulere with your kpangoro car and computer have this mentality then why Nigeria no go spoil? When everyone thinks they should be remunerated for their time at the expense if the rest of Nigeria just because they have a voice.....oh! I weep for the new generation of Nigerians! The sad thing is the lot of you 'youths' who were invited who all claim you rushed off somewhere and missed taking the gratification. I weep for the new generation of Nigerians who feel they have to be paid for services to Nigeria! I weep for this mentality! Are these the future of Nigeria? Linda I'm sorry, but you have issues in your head and you are no better than the average Nigerian who owns 4 private jets whom you see fit to out in your blog and ridicule! Yiu are even worse because you taunt others, yet do the very same! It is such a crying shame! Anyway if you like publish, if you don't like, keep to yourself. Just as long as you read it and turn around from this 'I need gratification to do my civic duty mentality!'

You really need to keep your emotions in check!!..calling people idiots!!..most people have made constructive criticisms not so much against Linda's person but on what she wrote..

Why are some Nigerians such horrid people. The woman can't have kids...ehen? Can you? Are you God that determines who can/can't have children. Adopting is an awesome thing.If they put Obama and Michelle here, y'all will be full of praises. Its disgusting the attitudes people display. What if GEJ's daughter logged on to this blog. Be careful what you say and write. Linda, I love your blog but some of your readers are just YUK!

Anonymous said...

Please Chelsea Clinton is NOT adopted o! What is wrong with some people, that is so ridiculous.

As for the Jonathans, i am not a supporter of theirs at all but this child issue is none of our business. What would be even worse is if these kids are both of theirs biologically and people are posting all these horrible theories.

Think about those kids please. The same people who said Stella Obasanjo's son was an imbecile(WRONG), the same people who said that Bukola Saraki's mum was different from Gbemi's(WRONG!). Please, it's enough joo. Then most of these people spreading these lies all go and sit in church on Sunday and pretend they are better than anyone else. Be careful, God is watching us all and unless you are close to a family and know their true story just don't join the rumour mill.

"Keep annoying me and see if I wount ban you from this blog"- Meaning? This has really caught my attention and i am dissapointed, people visit your blog, not for joblessness, i hope you get that?.There are so many other blogs out there to get nigerian latest news before you, ok.I visit your blog cos i was impressed with your pre- election balanced news not knowing you were just gathering numbers to get noticed by the corruption group of companies, thereafter, put your popularity out to their table for cash. This is what we get year in year out, moving in cycles with corruption at every level. NG will never change with this- I AM IN CHARGE TO HELL WITH OTHERS attitude.Nigerians get so full of themselves easily with a fake status symbol.So go ahead ban me,at least you can see my IP address and country so I dont post next time as anonymous.

The Jonathan's are simply a fairytale.Only god can put omeone on top. Congrats to God, Goodluck to Nigeria!

Anonymous said...

It's pretty sad that the family picture of the Jonathan's make it into the public domain and every body is talking about teh 50k Linda collected, and Patience's infertility(?). This is wicked. Instead of being enchanted at seeing the first family, peeps prefer to be haters.
My points are simple:
1) The man Jonathan has not thrown away his wife, so nobody has the right to do so.
2)They have kids, so nobody has the right to question if they are biological or adopted.
3) Patience must have been an asset all these years, else she won't have married and stayed married to a Ph.D holder.
4) I strongly think that 50k is too small a gift from the president of Nigeria. For God's sake, that won't even buy my first class ticket to Abuja.
5)Let's all be happy for the 14th president of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria, the man who God made president from all indications.
6) Linda, thanks for this picture. I'll share it on facebook right away.
7) By the way, I intend to be president of Nigeria by 2027. Y'all watch out for me. Don't be a hater when it happens. Don't hate Linda if I make her my SSA on youth development.

Usually I don't read comments. Just read the comments. People are still on this "brown envelope" stuff, etc.

So what if Linda was paid or not. Just because she's Ibo does not mean she should live by stone alone.

People need to understand that it's her blog and she can post anything she wants. Whatever she blogs is content and she needs daily content to keep her blog fresh / current. Linda have in the past posted things I don't agree with. What did I do? I read it but didn't comment. I moved on. So it should be with everyone. No one forced anyone to read her blog. It's only phucking Nigeria that would bully and dictate what the content of a blog ought to be. A blog don't have to be in any way and don't have to please anybody. This is not a "Nigerian Community Blog". No it's not. It's Linda's personal blog. She spends time and effort putting content together and blogging and all 9jas do is moan, bark, moan, bark, moan, bark :)

Na wa for my people :)

If she is not generating £100K+/yr from this blog already, then, I'm all for Mr Jonathan or whoever giving her £10,000 a month in brown envelope for her time and overhead. If u don't like it, go read other blog. Simples.

Linda, i don't think you need to explain yourself to any one.Let it slide.
I didn't support GEJ but i'm willing to give him a chance to prove me wrong.He might have had good intentions but did the wrong thing by giving money.The proverb( "Give a man a fish and he won't starve for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he won't starve for his entire life.") comes to mind in this situation. In a country where there is no electricity,good healthcare,security/jobs our president deems it fit to do this!
It isn't a case of bribe but of misplaced priorities.The people who collected the money were probably not expecting it and didn't have time to think of the implication of accepting it.Most of us would have collected the money when it was given .

@Linda, i wish you had quit whilst ahead. You obviously find this issue a sore point hence your need to be over defensive - 'the lady doth protest too much' comes to mind here.

You have to admit you messed up with your defense, but pride won't allow you to. I agree with Chi chi and ade cool... you most certainly are getting too big for your boots. Remember pride comes before a fall; don't threaten those who have 'made' you. Without us, your blog will be nothing and you know it!

But i can see a little success is getting to your head, try a little humility love because when that fall comes (and it will) you won't get no sympathy from me. Remember more money, more problems. There are many people whose toes you've stepped on, and i know they are waiting and watching. Be very careful.
I still love your blog though, but i am hating your attitude. Chill!

It seems that some people have resulted to intimidation tactics simply because Linda refuses to dance to their tunes. She can't please everyone so can't we just agree to disagree?? LET IT GO FOR F**K sake and stop dragging the issue!!! If you choose to leave her blog, because she won't satisfy YOU her lords and masters that supposedly 'made' her, then good riddance. I assure you that other people would replace you. Stop waiting for someone else's downfall, it's mean-spirited. Instead focus your energy on positive thoughts and actions.

Too much drama here.

Nice pics of the first family.

Linda, please please stop replying and trying to justify your stance.

Chelsea Clinton is adopted? SMH, she's not.

Yes Buky and Gbemi Saraki are half siblings. Ask them and they will tell you. Buky will tell you Chief Mrs Saraki isn't his mum. Why would he lie about it?

Some people really foolish. Some fools actually think that if they stopped reading Linda's blog other too would follow or the Internet traffic go stop. Fools. For your info, go use http://www.Woorank.com or Alexa.com and check countries where Linda's traffic come from. If Naijas no read her blog chinese, Germans, Japanese, Taiwanese, Lebanese, americans, British, south Africans, south Americans, .... Hope u get the picture? And for the fool that said they made Linda's blog, u must BD out of your fucking mind. You made who? How? By reading her blog or giving her content or paying her for her time? You talking shit and you need flogging, really. For those of you that think this blog won't be without you, go jump in a freezing lake. I mean it. Linda is not a politician, a role model or public figure. As a private individual, she's not answerable to none of you shit talking fools for whatever she does privately or publicly. Get that into dumb heads. You all hide under anons and dey chat garbage. Put your name and URL and we go run all of your out of the interweb back to your fucking village. Some of you wrongly thing u are doing Linda a favour by reading her blog? Plz, go read other blog and stop reading this and see if you will be missed or if anyone will even notice your absence. Linda owes no one no fucking explanation. What she does privately or publicly is none of your fucking business. 9jas in Nigeria are a fucking disgrace. Even the so called educated ones often seem backward. They ignore their own rotten lives and park their stinking nose into other people's business.

Why are some of you making noise about the kids being adopted huh? Those of you who managed to give birth, how are you so sure the kids will live to see old age sef? Like please, give it a rest!

Keep exalting yourself and the good Lord will humble you in a minute ok?!

Adopted or not adopted,if GEJ will want to adopt all of you here despite having your parents am sure you'll all claim you are orphans,i can see a lovely happy successful family from that picture.
And you guys should leave Linda alone its not by force to comment on her blog she is doing a good job

@bawse, pls which mom are u referring to?

Eleojo said...

My fellow Nigerians please let us guard our utterances. Children come from none other than Allah (God). If Our beloved mother is the mother of those children or not, it is none of our business. Are they happy? Yes! God gives to whom he chooses and taketh from whom he chooses? You cannot give to yourself what God has not given you. Do not gloat over other peopls misfortunes. If it is true she does not have children, don't you think she is already in pain about that? Why add more to her pain? What do you stand to gain? Is everything one big joke to you? Beware God is watching!!! So let them be. Our prayer should be that God continue to be with them, bless them and give them the strength to continue to lead our great nation Nigeria.

riri said...

Leave Linda ohhh.. i never see this kind thing before, she doesn't owe you a single thing.
whether she chose to collect a brown envelope or not is her prerogative..

Just say that you wished you were in her shoes..is it by force to have a role model..we are all adults and we don't owe anyone except God anything so technically Linda doesn't owe you guys jack..if you dislike her so called "hypocrisy" so much then stop reading her blog..na by force....
