Its VERSUS TUESDAY and as I told you yesterday, we had the AREA OOOOO special, where you call in and sing it. Without question we had inventive vocal presentations; blues, r n b, hip hop, fuji, name it.
My pick though will be Dami from Ogijo his rap presentation was my pick for today. The maximum temperature will be 32 degree Celsius while the minimum temperature and overnight low will be 23 degree Celsius. The sun rose at 6:33am and will set at 7:03pm.
On the PUBLIC FORUM we pondered - under what conditions should government vehicles disregard traffic regulations?
We see a lot of traffic violations, police driving against traffic, official vehicles taking an illegal u-turn, driving on the opposite direction of a one-way.
This topic brought out the angst in callers; there were a lot of people who have had terribly tragic experiences. It is noteworthy that people recognize that though the chief executive of Lagos state drives without his siren blaring or entering the BRT lane; yet we have the lawless law enforcers breaking every known traffic law in the books…
It was agreed that only in the case of fire or accidents, medical emergencies or in cases of national security threat is any government apparatus permitted to break traffic laws.
In my opinion the overriding issue is, ‘why do government agents/agencies flout the laws of the land’? It goes very deep, down to the reason why we are still where we are as a nation.
Excerpts from TOP 9 MOMENTS with Aramide…
ASUU has gone on a total indefinite strike action over the refusal of the government’s refusal to sign the agreement of December 2008. The money being spent on branding will brand us better than any speech before the G8, if it was spent on settling the ASUU debacle…how much is ASUU asking for even?
Anyway, their kids do not even attend these schools, what justification do they even have for developing policies when they are not affected…
Estelle will replace Lauryn Hill at the Stockholm jazz festival. Hill had to cancel all her European tour over ill health; we pray she gets back to full strength. This festival has before now headlined a lot of mainstream American artistes.
President Barack Obama has not decided yet whether to attend the FIFA world cup in South Africa, though he has been invited. I think it would be a landmark…first black president, first black world cup…
Chris Brown has pleaded guilty to assault on Rihanna, though she was present to testify against him. With this position, he accepted a deal of 5 years supervised probation and 6 months community service.
A drug runner sent a text message by mistake to an off-duty policemen about a drug transaction, the police man acted along and at the end they got the trafficker and his cohorts arrested. His day came…
“a word of encouragement during failure is worth more than a million words in success”
On the HOW TO HOUR, we learnt about “how to give a wrong impression during a job interview”
these were our conclusions:
• WEARING THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS OUTFIT
• BE TENSED UP AND STRESSED
• GIVE AN OVER-CONFIDENT OR LIMP HAND SHAKE
• DON’T STOP TALKING: about your heart break, your outfit, the weather, face
book, corrupt politicians etc
• BE A KNOW IT ALL-tell them to change their brand colors, their MD should get
a new hair cut etc
• AVOID EYE CONTACT AND WASTE TIME ANSWERING QUESTIONS
• BE OVERLY EAGER TO AGREE WITH EVERYTHING
• WHEN THEY SAY WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU, TELL THEM YOU WANT THEIR DECISION
• WHEN APPLYING TO A BANK, WEAR THE T-SHIRT OF ANOTHER BANK
• WEAR A BLOUSE THAT WILL SHOW YOUR CLEAVAGE
• DRESS LIKE AN AGBERO AND TALK LIKE A DRUNKARD
• WHEN YOU GET IN FOR THE INTERVIEW, SHOUT AREA!
Tomorrow is celebrity Wednesday,
Guest hint: it’s a man…
See you then!
