TOMI WAZIRI was just 27 when he was shot and blinded by an armed robber, over a N45k phone (approximately USD$100).

He had a female passenger in his Uber as a Self Employed young graduate, but was more concerned about her.

No!! Nobody stopped to help him, as his passenger cried for help, and he crawled out of his Uber, hoping for help.

How did it happen? How did he find help? How did he survive? Can he ever forgive this young boy who did this?
HOW did Tomi cope?? So many questions……

Tomi defied death and started the Tomi Waziri Foundation to support young girls. Yes!! He did.

Never Stay Where Noone Sees Your Value Lesson from a Father His Old Car and his Graduating Daughter

A father said to his daughter: “You have graduated with honors, here is a car I bought many years ago. It is pretty old now. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you for it.”

The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because the said it looks pretty worn out.”

The father said, “Now take it to the pawn shop.” The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said,The pawn shop offered only $100 because it is an old car.”

The father asked his daughter to go to a car club now and show them the car. The daughter then took the car to the club, returned and told her father,Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it because it’s a Nissan Skyline R34, it’s an iconic car and sought by many collectors!”

Now the father said this to his daughter, The right place values you the right way. If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Never stay in a place where no one sees your value.

Those who know your value are those who appreciate you….” Simple Lesson: Until you find those who will value you for what you are truly worth, KEEP MOVING! There is no need to get upset or try to change their opinions. You are the Square Peg in the Round Hole. You will not fit in, and they will frustrate you! There are those, elsewhere, who will place the right value on you! Don’t sell yourself short.

Culled from https://www.seattletimes.com/business/first-arrest-made-in-washington-states-650-million-unemployment-fraud/

Imagine… He would have left America, successfully with MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN STOLEN MONIES (do the maths), and arrived in Nigeria to become an ASIWAJU of some scammers like himself.

ABIDEMI RUFAI, 42, an APC Politician, is a SENIOR Special Assistant to the Ogun State Governor in Nigeria. Arrested for allegedly stealing $650 MILLION US DOLLARS belonging to the American TAX PAYERS, meant for Covid19 Unemployment Benefits using identities of more than 100 Americans in over SIX States.

There are many of them, Stealing for a Living in that UK, in USA, even the small Ireland etc, who pose as Business men and women, as POLITICIANS, transfering Stolen money, defrauding people, and Smiling all the way to the bank…

We MUST start Naming Names. “Eru kan nni mmuni bú igba erú” (The nefarious activities of one person creates a smear campaign against innocent others).

Those of you who KNOW Scammers, Fraudsters, Thieves, especially when they Scam the Social Security Systems DONT UNDERSTAND that these people are Stealing from YOU AND ME…

Social Security Funds are NOT Government “Free Money”.. THEY ARE TAX PAYERS Contributions.. This is part of the 45% TAX that YOU ARE MANDATED TO PAY…

YOU ARE FUNDING THE LIFESTYLE OF ROGUES, SCAMS, FRAUDS…. YES, YOU..!!! Equally guilty for keeping quiet.. Yoruba say, “Eni gbe epo l’oja ko ja’le, bi eni to gbaa lowo e” (He who stole the barrel of oil from the market, is not so much a thief. The Chief of Thieves is the man who helped him HIDE his loot”… You’re still hugging your Bible or your Quaran? Right? Yoruba say YOU are the THIEF….

We will purge ourselves. We will start speaking up.. NOT ALL NIGERIANS ARE THIEVES… But there are thieves amongst us, and many of us know them.. SOON, they will RUN TO AFRICA and BECOME OUR LEADERS…
And we wonder why we ONLY have rouges and UNSCRUPULOUS people as Leaders…. WE MADE THEM!!!
Hope you get the picture.. The thieves who rule us, were created by us. Our silence.

HERE is part of THE STORY….

Arrest reveals new details in Washington state’s $650 million unemployment fraud…

A Nigerian man suspected in Washington state’s $650 million unemployment fraud was arrested Friday at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport by federal agents as he allegedly attempted to leave the country.

Abidemi Rufai, of Lekki, Nigeria, appeared in federal court Saturday on charges that he used the identities of more than 100 Washington residents to steal more than $350,000 in unemployment benefits from the Washington state Employment Security Department during the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

“This is the first, but will not be the last, significant arrest in our ongoing investigation of ESD fraud,” said Tessa Gorman, acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, in a statement Monday.

The federal complaint also provides a detailed glimpse into the scale of the pandemic-related fraud as well as the methods — some of them surprisingly unsophisticated — fraudsters used to pilfer from unemployment systems in Washington and other states.

Rufai, 42, is scheduled for a detention hearing Wednesday. The case will be prosecuted in federal court in Tacoma.

“I want to thank our partners in law enforcement for their continued efforts to hold criminals accountable for their attacks on our unemployment-insurance system,” said ESD Acting Commissioner Cami Feek in a statement Monday.

Rufai was represented by an assistant federal public defender at Saturday’s hearing.

Rufai’s arrest comes almost a year to the day after ESD officials announced they were temporarily suspending unemployment benefit payments after discovering that criminals had used stolen Social Security numbers and other personal information to file bogus claims for federal and state unemployment benefits.

Within days, ESD officials disclosed that “hundreds of millions of dollars” had likely been stolen in a fraud scheme that law enforcement officials and cybercrime experts said was partly based in Nigeria, involving a criminal ring nicknamed “Scattered Canary.”

Washington was among the first states to be hit by a wave of fraud that would eventually strike dozens of states and siphon off billions of dollars in federal aid meant for pandemic victims.

Rufai, who used the alias Sandy Tang, is also suspected of defrauding unemployment programs in Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Federal officials acknowledged that Rufai’s presence in the United States probably was unusual in the unemployment fraud scheme. Many of the fraudulent claims that hit the ESD were likely filed from outside the United States, according to the complaint.
