“We Are Abusing The Word CEO” – Nigerian Woman Explains

Nigerian Business Developer, Omobaabirin Adedotun, is of the opinion that Nigerians abuse the word, Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Taking to her Twitter handle, she wrote: "Let me say this again. CEO means Chief Executive Officer. For there to be a CHIEF amongst the Officers. It means there must be other Officers. If you are selling Gowns on WhatsApp. You are a Trader. That's what you are." "If you are selling Wigs, shoes and the likes on WhatsApp. You are a Trader. That's what you are. It doesnt take anything from your Enterprenuership Journey but common, we are abusing the word CEO."

A Woman isn’t Designed to have Multiple Sexual Partners – Nyasha Madzima

Nyasha Madzima, the group CEO of Blacktoe Africa said a woman isn’t mentally or emotionally designed to have multiple sexual partners. He shared on his social media page; A woman isn’t mentally or emotionally designed to have multiple s^xual partners. When a female has s^x with a male, the act of him entering her allows his life force and energy to enter her as well. That man’s life force and energy then becomes a part of that woman’s emotional and mental character. The more of a man’s life force she takes inside of her, the more like that man she becomes. She starts to take on his ideological outlook on life, and begins to reflect the essence of who that man is. That’s why you can always tell when a woman has been with low caliber men.

Zuckerberg takes swipe at Twitter for fact-checking Trump

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has defended the platform’s decision to fact-check Donald Trump’s tweets after Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg questioned the move.
