“It is obvious that power supply in this area has really improved and we are happy.

“You know, when there is constant power supply, life becomes much more comfortable because now we can sleep comfortably at night and artisans now depend less on generating sets,’’ he said.

A resident of Ojo, Mr Tajudeen Idowu,was also excited about the improved power situation.

“In recent times, we have been enjoying improved power supply and we are happy about that.

“Though it is not yet 24 hours uninterrupted power supply but it has remarkably improved and I commend PHCN and Mr. Babatunde Fashola, the minister in charge of power for a job well done.

“We can only hope that the improvement will continue after the rainy season because some people are saying that it is because of the rains,’’ Idowu said.

Lagos Residents Advise Olajumoke, Former Bread Seller, To Dress Modestly

Some residents of Lagos State have advised Olajumoke Orisaguna, the bread seller turned model, to be modest in her dressing as a celebrity.

The residents gave the advice in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos. Mrs Deborah Mathew, a civil servant said that it was not good or decent for Orisaguna, a mother of two, to put on nude dresses even in the line of duty. “Posterity will not forgive her for that because the children will see it and might emulate her and she cannot advise them because she is guilty. “What example is she creating for youths like her and her environment; you can see how her boobs and thighs are showing. “This is not the type of modelling we are talking about for a married woman,“ she said. Miss Nneka Ibemesi, a student of the University of Lagos, advised Orisaguna to also pursue higher education. “No matter the amount of money, she will make from the model, she needs education to enable her know her left from right. “Without education, she will not go far and as it is people are just telling her what to do, the day she demands for what she really wants, her career will end. “I guess people just want to use her illiteracy to make money and gain publicity,’’ she said. Mr Olabisi Aderibigbe, a computer engineer, called on the 27-year-old celebrity to study the terrain she was operating to ensure her success as a celebrity. ‘’The model is lucky to be seen and picked but my worry is that she does not know the terrain she has gone into. “Exposing body is unAfrican, soon they will give her only pant and bra to wear and cat walk all in the name of modelling. “Whatever the people that found her out are doing, they should have at the back of their minds that she is a married woman with kids. ‘’They should have the decency to choose better clothes for her,’’ he said. Others reminded the celebrity that she was an example of God uplifting anyone up from the scratch, adding that she should be humbled in fame and be cautious of “what she is made to do’’.
