Lola Omotayo explains how she was sexually abused in high school & physically abused in university (Must-Read)
"I couldn't tell anyone because everyone would blame me, so I carried on the guilt and bitterness with me for years. I was filled with hate and I became an angry person, I was rebellious, I didn't want to listen to anybody…and because I wanted to be expelled from school to avoid seeing this person, I would do so many terrible things, everything around me was just so negative, I felt I wasn't good enough."
'I moved on to the university, met the love of my life and I'm like, okay this guy is cool, he loves me but he started to abuse me.
I was beaten black and blue all the time, in front of friends, in public and at a point, I felt, you know what,
I am not worthy enough, there is nothing about me that is nice, nobody loves me but I hid this from my family. I felt like a loser, so it was hard for me to focus. But one day, I woke up and said I am going to change my story and I dumped that person, focused on my education and decided to be serious and be something. I decided to get a job and go to school full time in America.'
She said she worked hard to make her own money so she could be independent and not have to rely on any man.
She said being independent and making her own money helped her build her confidence and pushed to achieve more in life. She then talked about her husband, Peter Okoye
"Look at my husband, when I met him, peeps were like what are you doing with him, he has nothing but I stood my ground and chose to stick with him because he had a dream. He and his twin brother did not let their dream die, they worked hard, look at them today! I stuck by him because he had focus and drive and today I am happy, I have a good life, we are happy and we have got a beautiful family. No one can make you a loser.'.
I am a Nigerian who loves his country and am hopeful about what it can become. I have seen and conducted myself as a patriot long before I thought of myself as a politician. I shall always walk this line and no other.
After all the political calculations are made and the dust of competition has settled, it must be this nation and its people who stand first and foremost.
The question becomes whether we stand strong, able to shape ourselves into our best future or will we stand frail and trembling, burdened by the abject failure to surmount the multiple problems confronting us.
It against this backdrop that I assess any action I take. Here I come
to my name being placed in consideration as the Vice Presidential
candidate for our party, the APC. I have labored hard to move this
party from being merely an idea in the minds of a few into being a
political organization that might win this election and govern the
nation in way that gives the people the hope and opportunity they
seek. Nothing is more important to me than to realize this dream not
for myself but for the people of this land I so love.
I helped to build this party, giving no thought to seeking an elected
office because of it. My contribution to the party was never based on
the expectation of a later political handout. Nigeria is in trouble
and we are well past the moment for such narrow, selfish games.
There came a time during the course of the events when our
Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari offered the Vice
Presidential slot to me. Being a normal human being, I was deeply
moved and honored that he would consider me for the position. Being a
patriot, I had to weigh my potential candidacy in all of its
I have concluded that the interest of the party, our campaign and of
the nation are better served if I retain my position as the National
leader of the APC, allowing me to be a bridge builder across all
divides. Although, I declined the position, I want to thank General
Buhari for extending the honor to me. Despite all the noise and
opposition around my possible selection, he stood firm and steadfast.
He showed the traits of a leader in holding to a decision he believed
was right despite the errant plots against it.
When my name was raised, the political hatchet men tried to chop it
down with rumor and lies. Over the years, I have developed a thick
skin. The personal attacks did not bother me. I am used to them. While
I have a thick skin, I don't have a thick mind. There has been one
form of attack that has troubled me. That is the attack based on
religion. The PDP and others have stoked fear of a Muslim- Muslim
I have removed myself from consideration so what I now say cannot be
seen as self-serving. I plead with the people of this nation to never
allow the power lust of cynical politicians to set brother against
brother, neighbor against neighbor. If you look at those politicians
who raise this issue the most, they are the least devout and faithful
to any religion other their self-interests.
Nigeria has too many secular problems – insecurity, economic
collapse, poverty , corruption and misgovernance – to allow inept
people to use religion to keep us from solving these challenges for
the benefit of all.
Those who exploit religion should be wary. For there really is a God
and he does not like it when you play with his people or use His name
to do the opposite of what He intends.
I ask the people to remove religion from the electoral equation now
that the tickets of both parties are mixed. I ask you to select the
ticket best able to end the downward slide that Nigeria has endured
since this government took over. I ask you to remember that too many
Christians and Muslims are poor. Most of all, I ask you to remember
that the true religion of the PDP is poverty, APC come to bring
prosperity to the people. Please vote for that.
The Nigeria I see is a nation that shall overcome. The Nigeria I see
is a nation ready to sweep aside the broken ways of our recent past
and the government and politicians who impose distress upon us. The
Nigeria I see and seek is one where each person, every man, woman and
child may live free of terrorism, free of the despair of poverty and
free of the fear that the government meant to serve and protect them
has turned its back to them in cold and utter indifference.
I see and seek a Nigeria where progressive democratic governance
creates the political and economic space needed for each of us to
contribute to rescuing and retooling this nation. And, in the process
of this benign endeavor, may each and every one of us share in the
sound promise and good prosperity that shall describe the architecture
of our national revival.
However, not everyone that shouts the name of Nigeria believes in this
vision. There are many who would have you laid low and our future
tossed asunder that they may persist in reaping the unjust reward of
their selfish ways. There are wolves in sheep clothing and even
jackals in wolf's clothing. I have seen them but not as residents in
some strange zoo. They populate the halls of this diminished
government and the party from which this government was born.
We have come to the field of fateful choice. We have been brought to
test the scales of weighty decision. Shall we lift this nation upward
so that from its higher vantage point we may clearly see the road to
our better destiny? Or shall we continue to march the march of fools
into the dark of darkness. The current path has but one end. It shall
take us into the den of national collapse. We have gone far enough
down this wicked avenue to be aware of what its continuance portends.
We must awaken of our own accord, my dear people, before the bell of
doom rings upon us. If we wait until that moment, we would have waited
too long. Our future, our fate, our destiny would have been cast into
the snare of utter misfortune. This is not the song of greatness. It
is the poetics of ruin.
For me, political ambition will never triumph over patriotic
conviction. This delicate moment affords no space for emotion to
intrude to blind us from what is best. The APC is the best and only
vehicle to enact the progressive and broad change this nation cries
for. I eagerly lend myself to this fine cause without me having to be
on the ticket.
This is a time for cohesion and an overriding sense of mission. We
must defeat the foe before us and resist all temptations intended to
entice us to fight among ourselves.
I sincerely commit myself to the rescue agenda of General Buhari and
I declare to you, I will work and dedicate myself so that our ticket
succeeds and wins the 2015 election -- not for his good, not for my
good, not even for the party's good but for the good of the nation we
Some may call what I have done a sacrifice. I call it otherwise. It is
my patriotic contribution and duty. I do so with a happy and uplifted
heart and clear conscience because I have committed myself to seeking
the best for this nation before seeking what is good for myself. This
is the creed of statesmanship I chose to follow. May this be the creed
of our party as General Buhari leads us to historic victory in the
May the light of a bright future always shine on you and on our
beloved nation, the Federal Republic of Nigeria

Apart from changing to a dinner suit, nothing else has changed about Buhari - PDP comes for Buhari again!
Find their statement below
2015: PDP Welcomes General Buhari To The Race, Insists Jonathan Is The Best
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has welcomed the emergence of former Military Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari as the Presidential flagbearer of Bola Tinubu's All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 general elections.
This will be the fourth time General Buhari will be contesting in the presidential elections. On each of the three previous occasions, he failed to articulate a vision of the future that was acceptable to Nigerians. On each occasion his brand of politics was rejected across Nigeria. Apart from changing to a dinner suit, Buhari, has not changed the tired ideas and provocative utterances that Nigerians rejected in previous elections.
We hope that this time round, General Buhari will conduct a campaign that is issue based and devoid of ethno-religious sentiments.
We are convinced that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) remains the only truly National Political Party in Nigeria, a platform on which all Nigerians can pursue their legitimate aspirations.
We also believe that despite the distractions, President Goodluck Jonathan has a genuine record of accomplishments on which to run and deserves a second term. President Jonathan's re-election will guarantee Unity and Stability for Nigerians. His second term will also deliver prosperity to Nigerians.
Finally, in the words of our own President "The choice before Nigerians in the coming election is simple: A choice between going forward or going backwards; between the new ways and the old ways; between freedom and repression; between a record of visible achievements and beneficial reforms – and desperate power-seekers with empty promises."
National Publicity Secretary
As a result of the pressure from friends, family and close associates, when some ladies reach age 30 and there are no visible suitors in sight, they develop some Personality Traits or Defense Mechanisms which may not be in their best interest because they conform to societal views and build a mindset that makes them see less of themselves like they think society does. They then believe there's little or no hope at all for them anymore and they are emotionally tired of making themselves available to potentials.
For example they stop going out totally, stop bothering about their makeup or fashion acumen, they say things like " I'm too old to do this, I'm too old to attend this function / event" or too old to go to the club, looking down on every guy who may not be their preference because they have achieved alot at their age and some guys may not meet their standard or pay grade and all other excuses.
What they don't know is that by staying indoors and saying i'm too old for this and that, or being overly picky, they lose out on chances to network and socialise so how will they meet people or even Mr. Right? If you're interested in settling down, no guy will break into your house to court you.
From my first hand experience, i have some lady friends who are 30 years old and above who still look smashing and stunning and also give 21 year old Ladies a run for their money, they also have loads of potentials and suitors.These ladies have not allowed the " 30 year Old syndrome" and societal pressure get to them, rather they are living gracefully while trusting in God.
Ladies, If you don't see the good in yourself or your potentials, no one will. Say no to the societal pressure and live life rather than get broken.
You wont overcome this phase if you're emotionally broken.
Lets encourage our sisters and friends dealing with this "Pressure" because society and its norms are not too friendly towards them.
In my opinion 30 is the new 25 and age is just a number and state of mind. The way you carry yourself emotionally, physically, spiritually and Psychologically determine how a guy will treat you not your age.
