We are going beyond bringing your favourite restaurants online, as we also give you the opportunity to tell people about your experience with various restaurants and recommend meals to friends.

Nkiru Sylvanus Removed As Special Adviser to Governor Rochas Okorocha


A lot of eyebrows were raised, when the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, appointed Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus, as his special assistant on Lagos Matters. Well, that appointment has been terminated.
According to blogger Linda Ikeji, who insisted she heard this from reliable sources, “The Abia state born actress had been battling several people since her appointment last year, who felt she didn’t deserve the position as a non-Imo state indigene and also because they felt the appointment was meaningless and unnecessary as they didn’t understand her job specification.
“They also felt she got the appointment because of her ‘friendship’ with the governor and not because she knew anything about running a public office. These people worked tirelessly to get her out of government house, and if what I’m hearing is correct, they’ve succeeded.”

I am a 37 year old man who is supposed to be getting married to my girlfriend of 8 years. The only problem that I have now is that I just recently found out that she had a daughter in her secondary schools days. What baffles me is that during our 8 years of courtship, she never bothered to mention it. Now I don’t know what else she could be hiding from me.
