Primary school education shouldn't cost a thing, especially with all the money those in power are stealing. If public funds were applied properly, there's nothing stopping this from happening in 9ja!

I received a mail yesterday from Linda Ikeji on how to claim my prize on which I tried to download but the attached file didnt download. So I click reply to say the file didnt download. Not long after that I started receiving text message on my Mtn phone that I have reset my password for both yahoo and gmail. Then I quickly tried to log in to my yahoo behold it has been compromise, them I tried to log into gmail, the same time.
The address that sent the mail with user name LINDAIKEJI is nathbennet@yahoo.com but the number of the person that hacked my account is 08090566817 and the alternative email he provided is mr.davidclarke05@gmail.com
I have recovered my yahoomail like 6 times today and he still change something and take over the yahoomail. I know he is doing this becos of the 25k I won what people can do for money.
Pls I beg you Linda dont accept any account details that is not my name. My name is Oluchi E. Lambert and I have account with that name.
Now I have being able to recovery the yahoo account but I am going for reception now, he may take over the account before I come back. He may keep doing this till you send the mail on how to claim the 25k please I beg just give me sometime to sort this out, I have called him and begged him to release my account.
Just wanted you yo know.
Pls I will get back to you when I come back later.
For now I cant comment with my name because I have not being able to recover my gmail account.

End of Month Prayer for Linda (January)

As you have put a smile on the faces of your readers and commentators through your educative, interesting, captivating, investigative and exposing posts. Also through your philanthropic nature of LIB Giveaways too numerous to mention, and the self made project for young ladies that u just embarked on, my prayer for you are thus-

You will never see shame
You will never know lack
You will experience no sickness
You will be above your mates
You shall break new grounds
You will enjoy God's peace
You will enjoy God's protection
Your family will celebrate you beyond how you are being celebrated now.
You shall meet the man of your dreams before the end of the year in Jesus name, amen.

Jane Ike winner of LIB 2015 N100K

Truth's if our funds're judiciously managed,Nigeria can still afford free quality education up till secondary school level and personally:I believe nursery and primary education're most important because they lay the foundation.

Buhari receives millions monthly as a former Head of State. With this funds, he hasn't ventured into any business; even if it's a small-scale industry to create employment for his people. For Buhari to receive millions as allowance, and turn around to tell us he borrowed money from the bank to pick up party nomination form, proves he is a bad manager. Gowon went back to school to improve himself; he has a PhD. The same thing with Obasanjo who has written several books (though some are controversial). With the hundreds of millions that the Federal Government uses to sustain Buhari as ex-Head of State, he has neither improved himself education wise nor economically. If a man doesn't have ideas on how to improve the economy of his family, how is he going to handle Nigeria's economy. In an interview on Channels Tv, Buhari said he will stabilize oil price. Do you see how dumb he is? Does the Nigerian President fix oil price? Maybe he is referring to groundnut oil.

Primary School education is still free till date in all government Schools. What are you guys here blabbing about???? I dont get all this rubbish. If you send your child to a private Primary School, are you expecting it to be free??? So many Nigerians are so clueless. Linda Ikeji research some more before coming up with such Posts. I have relatives in Primary Schools and they dont pay a dime ( Delta state to be precise)
