HOW THEY MET

Ashley Robert

Last year, I met my future husband at a surprise party on January 22nd, 2021. It was a surprise party for his best friend and now best man whose girlfriend had invited me. I had weekend classes and was reluctant but I went regardless. As the birthday boy walked in, behind him came Temi who I glanced at because of his smile. I stayed on the further end of the kitchen and soon enough he came and found a reason to speak to me. We spoke the whole night and when it was time for me to go, he walked me to my car and busted his famous Michael Jackson moves lol.

He took my number and texted me the very next day. He quickly told me he’s not the texting type and called me immediately through Facetime. From the very beginning, he had been direct and detailed with every single thing and I think that focus, precision, and consistency encouraged me to give him all my attention. From our first date on February 6th to our conversations about the future, there was no ounce of confusion.

I remember making jest of his Instagram page where he posted a lot of jokes, I had even told my friend I couldn’t take him seriously and before too long he showed me all he was about in plain sight and now here we are, getting ready to walk that aisle!

 

What’s magical and definitely God divine is, that we wanted the same things, hated and loved the same things even down to the details of our lifestyle. I used to say I finally found someone funnier than me that would always make me laugh. Knowing what we both wanted as individuals before coming together is so key in this journey. Our coming together only allowed us to further develop each other and build the start of something special, strong and God-centered.

 

 

Temiloluwa Ayodele

Where do I begin…… So, I was asked to distract my best friend (now best man) for his surprise party on January 22, 2021. It had been a long day at work, so I was pretty upset I had to drive an hour n a half to pick him up, and then go to a hookah bar. The whole time we were at the bar, I just kept thinking “I hope there are correct babes at this place lol”. Sure enough, I walked in, they turned the lights on, and everyone screamed “surprise !!”; My eyes immediately gravitated toward a beautiful woman in the corner of the room. It was like heaven opened up and God shined his torchlight directly on her because she was damn near glowing that day. I immediately made sure I marked my territory for anyone else thinking the same thing. I waited a couple of minutes and went over to her and we started talking. It was history after that; We spoke the whole night, played games, and as a part of the game we played, she ordered an item from amazon from my phone which I may not be able to disclose at the moment lol. She had class early in the morning the next day but we were both reluctant to leave.

 

It didn’t take long before I knew she was the one, the missing piece, and the last part of the puzzle. From our conversations about God, the future, and the fact that she didn’t sell lashes lol, I was pretty much sold on her very early. Every single one of our thought processes aligned down to the type of flooring we would want in a kitchen. I always wanted a proverbs 31 Woman, so I gave her a little quiz on it. I asked her to go through the whole verse and tell me how it related to her as a Woman. Her answers blew me completely away. We went out on our first date, and everything seemed so natural like we had been dating for years. This feeling never departed from me as much as I tried to avoid it lol. Till today to the glory of God, she has been consistent, caring, loving, and above all God-fearing. I truly thank God for the day he brought her into my life and I pray He continues to bless and grow our union according to His will IJN.

According to the organizer of the event, Vanguard Newspaper Limited, the LIRS boss, Subair, was conferred with the special award in recognition of his magic wand in the Lagos state tax revolution during the last seven years of being in office.

Receiving the award, alongside some of the LIRS directors, Subair expressed gratitude to the Vanguard Newspapers’ management for finding him worthy to be selected for the honour.

“I must thank the chairman and management of Vanguard Newspapers. They’ve been there as the vanguard leading the way in developments and new ideas for many years. To be on top is not very easy. They are one of the best newspaper organisations in Nigeria. I say kudos to them.”

Speaking further, Subair noted; “I feel very proud about our achievements at LIRS. It’s not just about me. It is about LIRS, the management, the directors, and staff, including most importantly, His Excellency, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his immense support and encouragement. Also, the Lagos State House of Assembly, the Judiciary and all stakeholders that have contributed to our success.”

Subair has introduced various innovative measures to shove up the tax revolution in Lagos State, which included the introduction of e-Tax, which has resulted in a faster turn-around time for tax processes, improved transparency, and increased taxpayer self-service.
