BBA8 Update: Eviction: Bolt and Maria out of The Chase/ How Africa Voted

Eviction: Bolt and Maria out of The Chase

Bolt and Maria were the weakest link this week, they are out of The Chase and heading home. Bolt followed shortly after his lady love Betty, who was Evicted in Week 4 while Maria didn’t even know she was replaced and up for Eviction. Ouch!

Maria, who has never been under the Nomination knife was replaced by Diamond HoH Nando earlier this week, saving his own head. You could see that Maria was shocked but like a true lady she carried herself with confidence and poise.

Big man Bolt, was as stunned but he probably saw this Eviction coming considering that he had dodged it at least three times thanks to Betty and Melvin. Seems like Bolt’s luck has now run out and the Housemates will have to do without their resident bully.

But it’s like Nando had said in his Diary Session, that when a fellow Chasemate is Evicted it only hurts for all of five minutes, they talk about how much of a shock it was and then life goes on. The same will be done for both Maria and Bolt. Life will definitely go on.

I rub my husband’s back as he eats my vegetable soup –Sarah Sosan

Every morning when he wakes up and beholds the skyline of the Centre of Excellence, Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) most probably smiles in appreciation to God for the invaluable contributions made towards the success of his administration by the highly cerebral women that are running with his vision to transform Lagos.
In her days as the Deputy Governor of the state, during Fashola’s first term, Princess Sarah A. Sosan (OFR), brought a touch of panache to the way she handled her responsibilities, both as Fashola’s deputy and the Honourable of Commissioner of Education. As she reveals, the reforms that took place in the education sector of the state make her particularly happy. In this interview, she talks about life out of office and the enduring romantic relationship between her and the husband.
