You know what they say:
It’s not over ’till it’s OVER.

But sometimes a relationship ends for the wrong reasons.
And realistically, it is possible for a couple to break up and then make up, leading to a more intimate connection.
But regardless of how the story is meant to end, isn’t it worth knowing for sure whether you two can ultimately find happiness with each other again ?

Sometimes people give up too easily and take the easy way out, which is to separate.

People aren’t always what you want them to be.
Sometimes they disappoint you or let you down, but you have to give them a second chance first.
You can’t just meet someone and expect them to be everything you’re looking for and then be angry when they’re not every hope and aspiration you projected onto them.

It’s foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be.
And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be Better than you imagined.

Different, but better.

Fact is :
Everyone deserves a second chance

TO WHAT EXTENT DO S. 271 AND 273 OF THE CRIMINAL CODE JUSTIFY HOMICIDE???? — August 4, 2016

TO WHAT EXTENT DO S. 271 AND 273 OF THE CRIMINAL CODE JUSTIFY HOMICIDE????

This is a post from a guest blogger whose personal information is at the end of the writeup for your suggestions and contributions.
Happy Reading!

Homicide is the killing of a human being. This could however be lawful or unlawful. It is the unlawful specie that the Criminal Code Act (Cap C38, LFN 2004) makes an offence in S. 306 generally while the lawful one is also given the force of law in some specified sections, e.g. S. 254 of the Criminal Code Act on the execution of court sentence. In the same vein, the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended 2011) frowns at the violation of an individual’s fundamental right to life save in some exceptional circumstances which may justify such a violation. (See S. 33 of the 1999 Constitution, as amended 2011)
I am concerned in this article most especially with S. 33(2)(b) of the 1999 Constitution as it is from this section that S. 271 & 273 of the Criminal Code Act (which constitute the crux of this article) derive their existence and validity, the constitution being the grundnorm of Nigerian law. For purpose of convenience, the provisions of the aforementioned section of the Constitution are reproduced verbatim:
S. 33 –
(2) A person shall not be regarded as having been deprived of his life in contravention of this section, if he dies as a result of the use, to such extent and in such circumstances as are permitted by law, of such force as is reasonably necessary:
(b) in order to effect a lawful arrest or to prevent the escape of a person lawfully detained
A detailed explanation paragraph (b) above is contained in Sections 271 and 273 of the Criminal Code Act. The provisions of both sections are supplied below.
S. 271 provides thus:
When a peace officer or police officer is proceeding lawfully to arrest, with or without warrant, a person for an offence which is a felony, and is such that the offender may be arrested without warrant, and the person sought to be arrested takes to flight in order to avoid arrest, it is lawful for the peace officer or police officer and for any person lawfully assisting him, to use such force as may be reasonably necessary to prevent the escape of the person sought to be arrested, and if the offence is such that the offender may be punished with death or imprisonment for seven years or more, may kill him if he cannot by any means otherwise be arrested.
S. 273 provides:
When any person has lawfully arrested another person for an offence, it is lawful for him to use such force as he believes, on reasonable grounds to be necessary to prevent the escape or rescue of the person arrested.
But, if the offence is not one which is such that the offender may be arrested without warrant, this section shall not authorize the use of force which is intended or likely to cause death or grievous harm. Continue reading

Teacher’s Joy — July 31, 2016

Teacher’s Joy

Hi everyone! Its really been a while. I’ve been on and off and inconsistent because of my busyness. Friday marks the end of the session in the High school I taught (worked) and I couldn’t be happier with my students’ results. What more could a teacher want than the joy of seeing his/her students excel?! When I started the vacation job with the school in the beginning of the term, a boy was brought into my class who could even hardly spell his own name *parental factor cos’ he was given double promotion even when they knew he couldn’t cope*. And I’ll stay extra hours with this boy doing private lessons, I’ll even beg him to do my assignments cos he wouldn’t do them, at a point I almost give up on him cos he just wasn’t improving but I couldn’t just give up cos I believe God to work on him so I’ll pray with & for him in addition to the teaching.
Just when everyone gave up on him, he started getting things gradually, he could write proper sentences and solve mathematical questions, he could interpret questions well. Wow! God worked on him… And when his results were collated, even the school management doubted his promotion but after checking it all through, he had above average which was the pass mark and my heart was filled with so much joy… God has done it again!
Though teaching ain’t an easy job but it sure teaches you more about life; Being responsible for younger ones, imparting knowledge, serving as role models, and so on.
As much as I’ll miss those kids, I also look forward to resuming back to my school for the final lap next week *smiles*, 500 level here I come!

Much Love,
Oluwafunmibi Fayemi

@ 22 II

Often times, we don’t get the concept of forgiveness. As human, we’ve made it our job to judge what sin can be forgiven and what sin can’t be forgiven. We sometimes feel we don’t deserve forgiveness for some sins so even when God forgives us, we don’t see the need ’cause in our heart of hearts we feel we don’t deserve it. To embrace God’s available forgiveness, you need to truly define who God is to you and know him for who he is. He’s not just your Creator, he’s a Father. He understands you even more than you do because he once lived as human on earth. He’s always available to listen to you. . . Continue reading

@ 22

Hi guys, I had my birthday last week and like I promised last year to see you at 22, here I am. I wrote 21 lessons @ 21 and now at 22, I’ve got 1(one) more lesson to add. I’ve learnt a lot within this one year and amongst these lessons, I’ve chosen one I believe I need to address.

Lesson 22 :- FORGETTING YOUR PAST

Trust me, it took a while before I got to know the difference between letting go and forgetting. You let go when you forgive but you can never be totally healed except you forget. Truth be told, I’m still a work in progress too but I believe I’ll get there *almost there*. Its in human nature to remember hurts done to us. Have you ever wonder why its easy to always remember the one bad thing someone did to you more often than the other good things the person did?! I think its just human nature. But in this lesson, I’ll talk on how to forget and attract the good things we want to experience or see in our lives. Its a principle I’ve started enjoying and you should too.

22 books (May) — June 2, 2016

22 books (May)

Earlier this year, I started a quest to read at least 22 books before my next birthday. I blessed God cos I think I have more than that down the line. Wasn’t one of the easiest thing to do cos of other schedules but it was worth trying and a lot of new things have been added to my knowledge, widening of horizon and better understanding of things.
I read from different types of book; Mystery novels, Crime, Finance books, Christian books, Romance novels, Personal growth & Transformation, Leadership and so on. The journey was gratifying and edifying. I learnt a lot and I’m still learning. Amongst the books for May are;
1) Maura’s Game: I think its the craziest gang-killing fiction I’ve ever read. Martina Cole now owns me cos I’m so buying more of her books.
2) Grace Revolution: You can’t have enough of a Man of God like Joseph Prince of course.
3) Harvard Hottie
4) Conspiracy in Death – Nora Roberts
5) Creation in Death – Nora Roberts
6) Divided in Death – Nora Roberts
7) Ceremony in Death – Nora Roberts
8) Born in Death – Nora Roberts
9) Betrayal in Death – Nora Roberts
And so many other books I’ve not read. . .
Thanks a lot for taking this wonderful ride with me!

Happy New Month!!
