Top 6 ATMs in Port Harcourt

Do you ever wonder how we would have survived without ATMs? Imagine you had to go to your bank every time you needed to withdraw or pay in cash as little as 1k. I bet we would have managed to survive, but still, thank God for ATMs. For those living in Pitakwa we know how things can get, you could just be driving down Rumuola or Rumuokwuta and see a bag or shoe you’ve been looking for and you just have to get it.

Why I Feel So Pained Right Now -@Lord__Nina

Why do people say things they don’t mean? Why do people make promises that they know they will not keep? Why people even boast about things that they cannot do? You tell me, “I’ll call you back in an hour” then I stay awake waiting for your call and then you call me back two days later. Do you live in an alternate universe where an hour is two days later? Did you forget? Did your airtime finish? Or are you just inconsiderate of other peoples’ feelings? Some might ask, “Why didn’t you just

How To Effectively Break An Addiction – @Lord__Nina

We often think people are only addicted to hard drugs, alcohol, sex but there are a lot of other things people can be addicted to, like video games, their phones, food, soda, porn. Some people are even just addicted to social media; you will be surprised that some people can’t just stay off Twitter or Facebook for a minute without feeling odd. Are you one of those people?
