After an eventful First day where we almost ended up sleeping on the streets because our hosts were asleep by the time we got back, Sunday was another opportunity to explore IB! On our list for the day were Cocoa House, Mapo Hall and Agodi Gardens.
The trip from Moniya station into Bodija took around 25mins. Thankfully, Seyi has a family house in Ìbàdàn and had offered to lodge us for the weekend.
When we got to the Estate, the security men wouldn’t let us in. Seyi tried to explain that it was his house and that he was the son of the owner but the security weren’t having it. They insisted we called the person inside to call them. Eventually, the security called one of Seyi’s uncles. Here’s how that went;
Security: Good afternoon sir…
I have to start this from the very beginning. I was scrolling through Instagram a couple of weeks ago and saw @bolanle’s post on taking the train to Ìbàdàn. I sent DMs to my friends - Seyi, Benie and Victoria and they were all down to go!
This is probably the easiest trip I’ve ever tried to plan. Everyone was down from day one and no one bailed.
Here’s timeline of our Ìbàdàn trip and how it all went down.
We all met up at the Railway station in Yaba. Seyi, Benie and I arrived at 7:50am because Victoria had…

There are a number of ways to persist users in a React or Single Page Application. A lot of times, devs generally use localStorage to store user data and load the data from there when required. While this approach works, it’s not the most effective way as it leaves users vulnerable to attacks. Using cookies is a little safer although it’s still not the safest option. Personally, I prefer a mixture of using cookies and JWT’s(JSON Web tokens) with expiry to persist user session and to force a user to re-login when their session expires. …
I spent days trying to find the right thing to google on how to setup the blue loading bar that shows at the top of your screen when navigating between routes in NextJS. It’s important to have this loading indicator to signify that a route change is occuring to avoid users assuming that the application has frozen.
This article assumes that you already have NextJS setup. To get started, we need to install the `nprogress` library.
npm install nprogress
Inside pages/_app.js, add the following piece of code.
import NProgress from "nprogress"
import Head from "next/head"
import Router from "next/router"…
I recently moved into a new apartment and ran into so many issues getting the new EDMI prepaid meter box from Ikeja electric to work. There were no instructions on any of the items provided and I wondered how non-technical people were able to overcome the technical hurdle required in setting things up. After days of researching and Googling, I finally figured it all out.
The activation guide on the Ikeja electric website were also of no help and their customer service numbers kept telling me I had to wait 152 seconds to speak to a rep every single time…
