"I had an experience this morning which changed my orientation towards Lagos State Government and Nigeria at large.

On my way to work this morning, my car broke down (fuel pump issue) on 3rd mainland bridge– just after Iyana Oworo. I was stranded because my mechanic did not come on time. Twenty minutes later, the LRU (Lasema Response Unit ) showed up. In my mind, I was already saying “oh God, this guys will collect all my money today just to tow this vehicle off the bridge”.

Surprisingly, they approached me politely and told me that the place is not safe hence, they will have to tow the vehicle to a safer place. I agreed since my options were limited and they towed my vehicle to the police post at middle of 3rd mainland bridge.

I requested for my bill and waited for them to exploit me by stating a large amount. Imagine my shock when they informed me the service is free. I was stunned into silence and I thought “can there be any free thing in Lagos?” I deep my hand in the pocket and gave them some token for drinks. Again, they shocked me with their refusal and told me that Gov. Ambode has said any vehicle towed on the bridge must be free hence they cannot collect anything from me. They drove off after that and I could not help but stare at them in stunned silence.

Well, I am not a politician and I am not trying to campaign for anyone. However, if I see something good, I will appreciate it; no matter who is running the government. This is a good one from Lagos State Government and I am also proud of the LRU (Lasema Response Unit ).

If you ever find yourself in a similar situation please call 112, it works.

God bless LASG. Lasema Response Unit "

I had to share this story with you because of one line Mr Toyin Obasunloye used, " if I see something good, I will appreciate it..."

That is how it ought to be, when you see something that ought to be applauded, appreciated or praised, do so without adding any weight to the matter. Usually, we get so caught up with putting people down, criticising this, criticising that so much so that when these people do something impressive, we clam up ; if I have nothing to speak against, I won't give a praise.

We need to change that habit. If you see something good, if you have experienced some good ..... LOUD IT!

"Wilder is going to be getting a contract from us ASAP," Hearn said. "It's obviously the fight we want. There is a lot of sorting out to do for this fight, but great news that in principle he seems to be on board for the idea of coming to the UK for the fight. We're going to be dealing with it and we're going to be making sure he gets the relevant paperwork."

Wilder tweeted : "The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the U.S. is still available. Today I even agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the UK. If he prefers the fight in the UK, the ball is in their court. It's up to them to choose."

Not long after, we got a picture from Joshua on twitter with the caption "getting ready to rumble". Everybody assumes he is talking about the proposed fight that will turn reality soon.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel fed us some juicy bits, "We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the U.…


In what is being called the spiderman act, 22 year old Mamoudou Gassama reportedly took seconds to reach a child hanging off a balcony 4 storeys high.

The young Malian who entered France some months back proclaimed: “I saw all these people shouting , and cars sounding their horns . I climbed up like that and thank God , I saved the child.
“I was not thinking of anything. I went straight up”, Gassama, who wore jeans and a short-sleeved patterned shirt, told Macron, recounting the episode.
“Bravo,” Macron replied.

He said that the boy was crying when he hauled him to safety and had also suffered an injured foot.

The incident occurred around 8: 00 pm ( 1800 GMT ) on Saturday in northern Paris .
Motion pictures of the rescue captured Gassama , 22 , pulling himself up from balcony to balcony with his bare hands as a man on the fourth floor tried to hold on to the child by leaning across from a neighbouring balcony .
On reaching the fourth - floor Gassama put one leg over the balcony befor…
