PROBLEM: Daughter Invites NCDC To Arrest Her Mother For Attending Wedding

A young Nigerian lady is taking no chances with the Covid-19 virus as she called on the Nigerian Centre For Disease Control NCDC to arrest her mother for violating the social distancing and stay at home order by attending a wedding.

The lady @ruthyorea made the call earlier today on Twitter as she tweeted at the official NCDC handle asking the arrest her mom and shut down the wedding.

Few days, the Nigerian Governor’s forum agreed to a 2weeks total lockdown of interstate borders while some states are already on an internal lockdown.

The Coronavirus confirmed cases in Nigeria are not more than one thousand and counting. Little wonder the young lady is doing all she can to look after her mom.

UPDATE: The Boy Beaten By His Father For $21k School Fees Has Graduated. See pictures

Guys, remember the viral story yesterday of a Zambian MTN executive who was filmed by his wife slapping his son for skipping Mathematics and English exams in a school he pays a whooping $21,000 (8million naira) per term?

Turned out the incident didn’t happen yesterday or few days ago. It happened in 2018, and the boy had long graduated from secondary school.

Our findings led us to the social media page of the boy and saw pictures of his graduation, and also pictures of him having a good time with his mum and dad.

Below are the pictures:

Looks like the family had settled their issues and moved on.

Congratulations to the young man on his graduation!

Meet 15-year-old Nigerian Girl With PhD Planning To Open A Bank

“I want to (finish the course) in two years. I want to have a bank by the time I’m 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people.”

Those are not usual words you hear from a 15-year-old. But those right there were said by young Esther Okade, a 15-year-old British-Nigerian Genius with a PhD in Financial Mathematics. Yes Mathematics!

Esther’s story came to light last year when she was interviewed by CNN.

Esther lives with her parents in Walsall, UK, and like every other child, was a normal kid at birth and while growing up loved to play with her dolls and dress them up.

However, at some point in her growing years, her parents noticed her exceptional love for number and mathematics, this prompted her mother Omonefe Okade, who is a mathematics teacher to home school her. So Esther, did not attend normal school like other kids.

When she was 6years old, Esther took up her first challenge, writing a math GCSE, an exam usually taken by 14 -16-year-olds in the UK and she passed.

She moved into the university immediately and always came top of her class as an undergraduate. By the time she was 10, Esther enrolled in the Open University in UK and at 15, got her PhD in Financial Mathematics.

Ovation please!

The black excellence has written a book series titled Yummy Yummy Algebra. Young Esther plans to own a bank at 15.

The entire Naijaplatform.com team, celebrate her.

Exclusive: Nigerian Lady Invents a Special Type Of Facemask

A young Nigerian female has designed a special kind of facemask that has never been seen before.

The mask comes with a screen to cover the eyes and most part of the face, unlike conventional mask that only covers the nose and mouth.

The mask is made of cloth materials and a rubber screen fixed onto it to cover the area of the eyes. Interestingly, the Covid-19 virus enters the body through the mouth, nose and eyes, so her design could be useful in preventing tiny particles of the virus from cough or sneeze of an infected person getting in through the eyes and also prevent people from touching their eyes with their hands.

Nice invention, isn’t it?
