Episode 13
I sent a message to Bode immediately Mrs. Williams left my room, informing him about the pregnancy.
I expected his reply throughout the night, but he didn’t. The  next day was Sunday. I didn’t feel like going to church. I was too ashamed to see anybody’s face, though no one knew about it yet, besides The Williams. I imagined what would happen when the news went viral among church members that I was carrying Bode’s baby….having denied that I was in a relationship with him earlier.. Oh my God! How did I find myself in this mess?
Then I thought of my dad.
Eeeeh!. My dad!!.
He trusted me so much. I was his pride, his angel, the apple of his eyes. How would he take it?
I have disappointed him and my two elder sisters.
None of them had a child before marriage, even Sis Tiwa was still trusting God for the fruit of the womb then, it’s only Sis Temi that had a baby girl, expecting the second one.
Oh!.. I’ve disappointed many people, and Bode’s mum? Wouldn’t she think I lured her son to sleep with me? Won’t she see me as a cheap girl?

As I thought of these things, tears were flowing freely from my eyes.
Mrs. Williams came to tell me to get dressed for service.
I told her I wasn’t feeling like going to church.
She said “okay, it’s fine. Just make sure you seek the face of
God for forgiveness, mercy and the way out.” I said thank you ma. They left.

I switched off my phone. Then I started thinking, again and again, weeping and asking God for forgiveness. I also prayed for His mercy and way out, as Mrs. Williams told me.

After the prayer, I put on my phone, and almost immediately, Bode’s message came in.
I read the message which went like this..”I was devastated by

”I was devastated by
your message. I think the only solution is abortion. I thought about it throughout the night and that I think is the only way out. I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you.”

I threw the phone on the bed. I said to myself “how I wish it was that easy.”
As a matter of fact, maybe I would have agreed with him if this woman was not involved, but now, I just have to bear the consequences: the shame, reproach, rejection and anything that comes from it.

I threw myself on the bed, covered my mouth with a pillow and screamed into it.
JESUS!.JESUS!!.. Please have mercy on me….this is too much for me.

While doing this, I heard the Pastor’s car moving into the compound. I quickly got up, wiped my face and pretended to be fine. Soon Pastor Mrs. was in the room.
“How was your day my dear”.
“I was praying ma”.
“And weeping at and same time”. She said, smiling.
I didn’t  answer.
I showed her Bode’s message.
She read it and said “I knew it. I knew that would be his option.”

Then she sat beside me on the bed, hugged me and said “Listen my darling, there’s nothing new under heaven. Many people have gone through this route before, and many will still go through it.
I’m sure if not for divine intervention, you could have considered abortion as Bode suggested. But sometimes we
offend God while trying not to offend man. Don’t use sin to cover sin. God is the ultimate. Once He has forgiven you, it doesn’t matter if anybody doesn’t.
Now, I will tell you the story of my own life.”

What did she say? Watch out for the next episode

Buhari: 12 million Nigerian children are afraid of attending school

post-image

According to President Buhari, 12 million children in the country have been traumatized and are frightened to attend  school because of the high prevalence of kidnapping.

On Tuesday, October 26, the President announced this during the launch of the Safe School Programme in Abuja.

The President, who was represented at the ceremony by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, also stated that dealing with security concerns in the country has been difficult.

“The incessant attacks on the country’s education system such as kidnapping, abduction of pupils/students, increased activities of insurgence and general insecurity in our schools have exacerbated many factors responsible for the growing number of out-of-school children.

It is disheartening to note that even when the abducted students are released, the trauma of the incidences remains long in their minds; hence the plan to have teachers trained on psycho-social support.

There are more than 12 million children currently traumatised and afraid of…

APC: Nigerians still trust us, we will win 2023 elections convincingly

post-image

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.

They were the Ministers of Power, Engr. Saleh Mamman, and Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, at the time, informing others that the action would be ongoing.

According to presidency sources, the President may be waiting for the results of the continuing review process before taking action, which may include removing more of his cabinet members whose performance and conduct do not satisfy the administration’s standards.
