Congratulations, Uju. 🥳 I bought my first house in 2008 at 34 yo. I used to randomly dig out the deeds, just to read out my own name. 🤣 I've spent the last 3 months overseeing a loft conversion. Wild journey but very gratifying. More power to you. ❤️ https://t.co/P854mzn1CY https://t.co/UMbpwaBwB7

My mother was 54-years-old the first time a deed was issued in her name alone. I will claim title of sole ownership on a house for the first time at age 44. https://t.co/6NjX121vgY

A certain 'Kode Akapo', who has been writing to me for months, appeared to me a dream last night - a tall white man with a square jaw and mousy hair. Has anyone else received emails from Kode Akapo?

That comes to about N106,000/ $225 per school. 🤓 https://t.co/tULzpMC8JL
