One weird thing you didn’t know can be insured

Let’s start from our everyday experience. Have you ever heard about crazy insurance claims not approved by the insurance providers whenever people try to make claims? Ridiculous claims like a tire burst for a comprehensive motor insurance or a cockroach crawling on the driver’s leg, causing the car to crash? Indeed, if you are an insurance provider, you would have experienced a lot of supposed claims which client came to make that almost made you cackle in their presence.

INSPO! Top 13 things mentally strong people don’t do

Nigerians React
1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair. 2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them.

They Don’t Shy Away from Change Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is…

A great example was in 2009 when the two parties signed the “Nigeria-EU Joint Way Forward,” which highlighted guidelines for developmental co-operation between the two entities.   Information in…
