Photos: Checkout This Wheel-Barrow Pusher Cute Outfit

Saw this interesting story on Facebook. Shared by Chiemezie Claire Asunugwo-Anyanwu. Pictured above is a wheelbarrow pusher named Bashir who does his business at markets in Abuja and its environs. He's always well dressed despite what his job is. Read what Claire wrote about him after the cut...

"You can find dignity in your job." His name is Bashir Suleiman, he's a Mai-barrow and a proud one at that. I was privileged to have him gather my groceries and produce for me as I shopped in the market today. First of all he was very well dressed with his clothes well ironed as if he was going to a proper office work and I was told by the fruit seller who saw my initial surprise when Bashir approached me that it was his custom to dress well daily to his Mai-barrow job. It got even more interesting when I caught a whiff of his "perfume" and noticed his socked feet in a pair of well polished sandals��. Other barrow pushers approached me but with my curiosity already piqued and biased towards Bashir, I felt it an honor to have him gather my stuff for today. Next, he had very good communication skills, his grammar may not have been ivy-league standard, but we communicated very easily while he helped bridge the gap between my Hausa language spattering and my needful communication in same language with my customers who spoke little or no English. Bashir was very much involved in every bit of my shopping making sure I wasn't cheated and my change was properly counted out and given to me. Bashir also showed me the best places I didn't even know existed in the market to buy the freshest produce at competitive prices. Bashir was attentive, involved, sharp, smart, fast and market savvy too. Whilst we were shopping, Bashir got as many as 3 different phone calls from customers like me who were en route the market and wanted him on standby for them. One told him where to wait for her while the other told him she was prepared to wait till he was free to serve her since he was currently engaged. Bashir did his job with a great attitude and a smile, he was polite and courteous yet humble and ready to serve. At the end, I had to give Bashir much more than I have ever given a Mai-barrow( and believe me I always tip them generously) because Bashir beat all stereotypes and made my life much easier today. Of course I left with Bashir's phone number decisively saved in my phone book. People like Bashir have further strengthened my belief that the future generation of our country can and will excel and be better than the past generations. Tomorrow we may just see a registered company--Bashir Uber-Mai-barrow Ltd, with clean, well dressed and courteous service boys...making shoppers' lives easier, earning good money, even paying taxes to the government and contributing their quota to the system versus the modern day entrenchment of criminality by the teeming unemployable youth that are not ready to work yet maraud the society today. Now this is what I call, progress, long sightedness, wisdom and imminent vital prosperity. Let's all join hands and make the skies of these young men a stepping stone by encouraging them in whatever ways possible. Thanks for reading.... Thanks Bashir.

19-Year-Old Pastor Impregnates Female Church Founder In Zimbabwe (Photo)

A 19-year-old pastor in Zimbabwe, Frank Emmanuel, has caused a stir after he allegedly impregnated the founder of his church, Bernadette Nyanga, 26, and snatching her from her husband, reports Masasi News.

The woman who is the owner of Hope and Life Ministries based in Dangamvura, has been married for two years to Leslie Mparutsa, but has been having sexual relationships with her young pastor and is currently carrying his baby.

But the 19-year-old pastor has maintained that he did not get another man's wife pregnant because the woman and her husband have been separated and according to him, she was free to date him.

“I am not dating someone’s wife. The two (Bernadette and Leslie) broke up and I don’t know why he is continuously pestering her.

If you want to get the truth, call Bernadette on her Net­One line. Leslie is out to tarnish my image as a man of God as well as that of Bernadette who recently founded her own ministry.

She is a woman of God and some people are misleading Leslie to tarnish our image. I cannot say anything on the alleged affair, why can’t you phone Bernadette?” Emmanuel told reporters

But the bitter husband is not having any of that, accusing Emmanuel of being the cause of the break down of his marriage.

“I have lost my wife of two years to a young pastor in Dangamvura, Frank and the two are spending most of their time together. At one time, I confronted Frank to leave my wife alone, but he told me that Bernadette had lied to her that she had divorced me.

The two continued with their affair. I arrived home last Tuesday night from church and discovered that my wife was not at home. I waited for her return in vain and decided to look for her at Frank’s house in Area 3.

It was around midnight and I was told that he had left and was now staying in Founders area of Nyamauru also in Dangamvura,” he said.

Leslie said followed the two to their new love nest and allegedly caught up with the lovebirds who were walking in the company of Frank’s three body guards.

“The body guards confronted me and told me to leave the two alone. They warned me never to confront their prophet again. I left them and decided to make a police report at Dangamvura Police Station since I had been threatened by them as well as Bernadette’s text messages.

I was advised by the police that it was a civil matter. I was actually forced by her late mother to marry Bernadette. My late mother­-in-­law bankrolled my wedding in December 2013 after I had told her that I did not have the resources for such an occasion.

She said I would repay her later, but unfortunately, she passed on before I paid her money back. My two ­year marriage with Bernadette failed to produce any children and I later discovered that my wife was taking birth control tablets. What is paining me most is her claims that she is now carrying Frank’s baby, yet our marriage is still to be annulled,” the agrieved Mparutsa said.

The things that happened in God's vineyard!

How To Know If Your Android Phone Is Fake Or Original

Mobile Markets are filled with Fake Phones and they selling them as Original even with Branded tags beside it the replica phones are present in the market that looks similar to the original phone, to check whether your phone is original or fake there are two ways of checking it. These methods will help you a lot while buying a used cell phone.

1. First Check the following Features :

Be careful about the spellings For example, Soniericsson, Nokla, Techno and Samsvng
Warranties: Always insist on 12 months warranty certificate from the handset manufacturers; Never an oral agreement with the seller. Fake phones come with a shorter warranty periods since counterfeiters cannot guarantee it will last so long.

Check for performance of the handset: Some people carry their phones home without testing it first. Some dealers encourage this, knowing the handset is fake. As you check it out, you may notice some points of low performance such as memory which is smaller or poor quality photos.

Appearances: like dull colors , Fake logos,built quality difference in weight, screen size, location of buttons and battery, quality of printing and paint finish, added or missing functions, quality control stickers and holograms and an overall lack of quality.

2. The other method is checking Phones quality through 15 digit IMEI code:

Dial *#06#

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity. It is a 15-digit number and may be found in the packet of the mobile phone. It may also be found by removing the back cover and it may be placed on the battery sticker.

The number might be as below:
3 6 9 3 9 5 [b]0 1 2 3 5 5 6 7 8[/b]
Now look at the 7th and 8th digit. These two digits will ensure your phone’s quality!

If the seventh and eighth digits are 00 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Original Factory which ensures the best quality.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 01 or 10 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Finland which is high quality.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 13 this indicates your cell phone is assembled in Azerbaijan which is too bad. And it is also dangerous for health!

If the seventh and eighth digits are 02 or 20 this indicates your cell phone is assembled in Emirates which is very poor quality.
(NB: Some Indian sets have this number)

If the seventh and eighth digits are either 03/30 04/40, this indicates your phone is made in China but its quality is good. But not good either as 00, 01 or 10.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 05 or 50 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured either in Brazil or USA or Finland.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 06 or 60 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured either in Hong Kong, or China or Mexico.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 08 or 80 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Germany which is fair quality.

This will help you to pick the good one. Try it. But, remember, these tips may not work with the Sony Erickson Mobile Phone.
Though the above information has been collected from very reliable sources, 1 or 2 of them may slightly vary.

I Won My Election Clean And Clear – Mark Reacts To His Sack

Ex-Senate President, Senator David Mark has reacted to Saturday’s ruling of the Appeal Court which voided his election by declaring that he “won the election convincingly”.

In a statement forwarded to DAILY POST by his media assistant, Paul Mumeh, the immediate past Senate President expressed faith that he will still win even if the election was conducted a hundred times.

The Appeal Court had in its verdict on Saturday ordered a re-run of the Benue South Senatorial election. The appeal was brought by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in that election, Daniel Onjeh.
Mark, while charging his people not to be deterred by the verdict but be strengthened ahead of the re-run, said he has “no doubt that his constituents would turn out en masse to vote for him again.”

Continuing, he said, “Whatever the situation may be, one thing I know is that my people are solidly behind me . They also appreciate the fact that I have done more than enough to lift up Idoma nation to a position of eminence in the contemporary political history of Nigeria.

“I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times , I will still win convincingly.”
