”My friend just shared his story with me. I have advised him but I need your thoughts.
”He met a lady around March this year and they became friends. He is an Accountant and works with a Federal Government Agency in Abuja. Along the line he asked her out and she insisted he finishes his ICAN before they can start dating.
”Long story short, she later accepted to date him.
”Probably because he passed all but one of the exams in the Professional stage of ICAN. He recently invested some huge sum of money into a biz deal. He told me it was actually all of his savings and he would become a multi-millionaire if the deal works out.
”He decided to test this lady to find out if she will stick with him if the going ever gets tough (as a result of our insistence that the lady isn’t really into him). And so he told her that the deal he was working on had failed and that he has become broke. He said he will like to marry her and try to sustain themselves on his current salary of about 180k pending when things become better but she replied that she can’t marry someone who is earning 180k monthly.
”She feels it would make her drop from her standard of living as she wants to live inside the city of Abuja and not in the outskirts like Karu or Kubwa. Mind you, her parents live in one of these places and the guy is not parents live in one of these places and the guy is not even thinking of living in anywhere beyond these places like Nyanya/Mararaba.
”This guy loves this girl so bad and is a very hardworking guy. He is hoping to get promoted when he completes his ICAN and is even looking at getting a better job in a bigger Government Agency or a Multinational company. He is so distraught at what the lady said. We have advised him to forget about her and move on, but he is considering opening up to the lady that what he said about the deal was just a test in the hope to make her re-consider him.
”Please, were we wrong with our advice? Meanwhile, this guy’s ex loves him like there is no tomorrow and she will gladly marry him even if he was earning 30k monthly but due to family pressure on him to marry a graduate and an Igbo lady, he broke up with her. I thinks he can still persuade his parents to accept the lady.
”If you were in our shoes, will you advice your friend differently?
”The lady earns around 180k but she mentioned that she spends around 300k when going shopping and she is scared she would no longer be able to do that if she marries him as she would have to contribute almost all her salary to maintaining the family”

Introducing the Nigerian Association of Hairdressers & Cosmetologists
The Nigerian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists (NASHCO) has been in existence since the 1970s, precisely founded on the 19th of May 1978. The Association is a well known one with a huge membership database across the Country.
As part of the aim of its existence, the association was founded to provide a forum where Hairdressers as well as Cosmetologists could have their common problems dealt with fairly and timely. They also wanted to ensure that high professional standards and ethics within the field were constantly adhered to, in order to foster trust and confidence with their customers and partners. The motto of the association is “UNITY AND STRENGTH”.
However, in light of this knowledge which I believe generally precedes one’s revelation of the existence of “NASHCO”, there are 3 important things you probably did not know about the association and it’s really funny, because these 3 things are what has given the association the much credibility and recognition it continues to enjoy today.
Here they are:
1- It’s amazing to note that “NASHCO” has recorded an amazing growth in membership over the years. Just in Lagos alone, the State Chapter of NASHCO currently records over 10,000 registered members in all 20 local government areas and 37 local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) of the state.
In all states, the state body is headed by the President and Executives; the LGAs and LCDAs are headed by a Chairperson, while the various areas under each LGA/LCDA are headed by a Zonal Head. In Lagos, meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month, with the exception of December.
2- NASHCO is registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Commerce and Industry
3- NASHCO is equally registered with the Lagos State Wealth Creation and Empowerment.

No. The Jambolo Business Development Team will need to physically visit the service provider or any affiliated association that controls such services in that particular area field surveys to verify the identity and capacity of the prospective vendor to deliver specific services. This procedure ensures that only Service Providers that are physically verified are listed on jambolo.com

artisan/small business on Jambolo?
A rating tool is currently being developed on that would help with feedback on the quality of work provided by the service provider. This will provide valuable information for other users who wish to use the service provider in the future and help us serve your better.
5- Will Jambolo Online Services guarantee quality of work produced by listed artisans?
No. Our site, Jambolo.com is a platform that aggregates and provides access to frequently needed blue collar services. The site also seeks to promote quality customer services and competition amongst such service providers in Nigeria.
