We all love being on our  Desktop , laptop, smart phones and ipads, the internet is the big reason behind us spending so much time on these gadgets. As you can see that the internet is probably one of the greatest inventions of the century. i remember, my teacher do tell me that he had to go to the library to do research but now, all we have to do is browse the internet for our research. We can do many things with the internet; we can shop, play games, chat with  friends on Facebook,  MySpace or Skype, watch videos on YouTube, earn money from blogging, and many more!..
Despite these facts, the Internet has been a major source of information and we should use it wisely and discreetly. I personally think the benefits outweighs the harm. With a few clicks on the keyboard, we can virtually visit everywhere in the world.

I believe the Internet will bring us more surprises and offer us a promising tomorrow.

What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of a year.”Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Happy New Year to you!
May every great new day
Bring you sweet surprises–
A happiness buffet.
Happy New Year to you,
And when the new year’s done,
May the next year be even better,
Full of pleasure, joy and fun. Joanna Fuchs.

Life is a book in volumes three–
The past, the present, and the yet-to-be.
The past is written and laid away,
The present we’re writing every day,
And the last and best of volumes three
Is locked from sight — God keeps the key.



At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let’s raise our hopes in a confidant toast,
to the promise it ushers in.

May your battles be few, your pleasure many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.

May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.

A new year is beginning to peak through
softly beautiful and different like new falling snow,
each day unique and shaped just for you.
Your life adding something as each day does grow.
My wish for your new year is beauty
and softness with surprises thrown in for delight.
Love for each day bringing happiness to you,
making your life a scene of sparkle and shining sunlight.

Let the new year be a year of freedom from sin,
a year of service, a year of trust in God,
and it will be a happy year from first to last.
It may be the hardest year we have known,
but it will be the happiest….By J. M. Buckley ~

To leave the old with a burst of song;
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the things that bind you fast
To the vain regrets of the year that’s past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of the not worth while of the days grown old;
To dare go forth with a purpose true,
To the unknown task of the year that’s new;
To help your brother along the road,
To do his work and lift his load;
To add your gift to the world’s good cheer,
Is to have and to give a Happy New Year.

In the meantime, enjoy the fireworks, the loud and boisterous family dinners, and the quiet intimate meal with your loved one. And don’t forget! Greet everyone with Saying Images‘ specially curated quotations and specially made greeting cards. Enjoy and don’t miss this opportunity of sending warm wishes to your near and dear ones. Happy New Year 2018 to everyone out there and cheers!

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse

If you are among a long list of students who have been wondering why there aren’t any scholarships for students with a degree in lower second class or Third class, keep reading.

Many of these scholarships are often sponsored by organisations or large families in conjunction with the granting universities. Those that offer them usually consider them an investment rather than a gift. It’s no wonder scholarships have very taut strings attached.

Some of the conditions for awarding these scholarships may include some or all of these:

  1. Academic merit
  2. Employment potential (absorbing student into the donor organisation after studies)
  3. Expectation of maintaining a certain grade point average
  4. Suitable career goal
  5. School or Organisation representation in activities
  6. Community/Region affiliation
  7. Leadership potential

Although finding scholarships that don’t take into account the academic merit of a student requires a lot of effort, it is possible to get scholarships with other considerations. Hence, here are 1o Masters degree scholarships offered annually to students with Lower Second Class or Third class. These scholarships are renewed every year. These scholarships are renewed every year. Therefore if the deadlines are passed, they will be updated in due time. If not, apply soon.

1. Australia Awards Scholarships for 1,000 African Students – with at least 3rd Class
Australia Awards, a cornerstone of the Australian Government’s development assistance program for Africa, provide access to postgraduate education, training and professional development opportunities for suitably qualified Africans from eligible countries. On their return to the workplace, Australia Awards Alumni are expected to contribute actively to development in their home countries.

With , You are Safe from Being Scammed Online.

Segun Balogun



Scam is what most internet geek refer to as a fraudulent scheme performed by a dishonest individual, group, or company in an attempt obtain money or something else of value..

One of the problem facing Nigeria’s business world is the ever growing persistence of people who perform scam activities.

Scammers as they are fondly called, operate every where, either online or offline. A famous principal Researcher at Microsoft , Cormac Herley says in one of his article titled “Nigerians Try To Stop Nigerian Internet Scammers” that Nigerian Scam‘ is now one of the suggested auto-completes in a Google search for Nigeria. This indicates the high occurence of the fradulent activity and people’s unending desire to avoid being scammed.

Dating site, Forum sites and large marketplaces in Nigeria give room for scammers, because they confuse people with amazingly cheap things.

Often times, people who have been scammed in one way or the other discourage other from trading in such business platform based on their experience

There is a general notion that all Nigerian free online classifieds Ads website are scam full., is unfortunately, not an exception.

Some people try to use JiJi with their selfish illegal purposes just because it serves as an arena that provides buyers and sellers the avenue to meet and exchange goods and services.

Since inception, there have been controversies whether or not one can be scammed JiJi.

Just last week I received a mail from of my readers asking How true or scam free is

However, The management of Jiji has declared its zero tolerance for scammers on it’s website.

In a press release available at our disposal, Jiji clearly addressed the issue of scam and how it solved the problem.

Read Details Below…
jiji against scam


What we do with scammers? wants their users be safe. And, if it detects fraudsters on the site, they will be removed forever.

Our uniqueness is in our method of fighting scammers. We always try to ensure that only honest, real people are buying and selling on our site, and we help them to do this more comfortably. So we decided to show you how our “fighting” works from a technical point of view, and “acquaint” you with most of the known internet scammers in Nigeria. You should know them by sight and beware.

In addition, we hope scammers will understand that their conduct is unacceptable and stop their nefarious activities.

How do we find serious fraud on JiJi?

Every Jiji user can complain about suspicious, scam ads. You should just push the button “Something wrong?” and then choose the reason for your suspicion (for example, it is illegal; seller asked for prepayment; it is spam).

jiji image 1 has an important step of blocking ads – user’s verification. Only real people, who have already been registered on the site and approved their e-mail, may apply for the blocking advertisement.
If user gets 2 requests for ban – he automatically will be blocked by system
Remember, there are two types of complaining on users – serious (marked with red color) and not serious (marked with yellow color). If one persons picks up five not serious complaints – he or she will be also blocked.

Why don’t we ban a user after the first complaint?

A market place is a place where all people are competitors. So, we don’t necessarily trust the first request for a block. Some people want to get rid of competitors on JiJi by such methods – just pushing the red button once.

That’s why JiJi has a serious approach and bans only real scammers. Its special smart algorithm checks the veracity of complaints and if the complaint doesn’t pass on certain criteria, the system ceases to be taken into account and does not react.

Do you have other ways of detecting fraud?

Definitely, yes! JiJi’s team of professionals every day monitors news on different sites, forums and reviews about frauds in Nigeria.

For example, when we found this review on Linda’s blog about scammer OLUKIA TOSIN on JiJi, we were outraged. He was immediately banned! ONUKA TOSIN is no longer a user on
Here is one example of his ads. Be careful with anything similar!


Similar reviews about fraud on were also encountered on other sites and blogs. And we do with other scammers the same – block forever!
jiji image 5
We want to thank everybody who is not indifferent to this problem, and helps us to detect scammers on online marketplace! We want you continue to adhere this philosophy.

One blocked fraud equals thousands of people who save their money.

Take care of yourself and other honest Nigerian people. If you have encountered a fraud, please inform JiJi’s administration, or submit a request to ban the site’s user.

All scammers will be excluded from JiJi! We instantly react to any information about them!

And remember:
