According to Dayo Amusa, it was hard to leave but eventually, she saved her life.

Revealing this in a post on Instagram in the wake of the different reactions to the death of gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu, who died from injuries inflicted from beatings from her husband, Dayo Amusa wrote thus:

“YOU CAN NOT FIX A BROKEN EGG

I used to be a fixer. I stayed in bad relationships, attracting the same type of men – men who needed to be fixed.

I know so many women in the same position. We attract cheating men, commitment-phobic men, emotionally unavailable men, emotionally damaged men, alcoholics, drug abusers, narcissists and sociopaths.

It’s like we are a magnet for men whose pieces are shattered all over the place. And for some reason, we feel compelled to put these pieces back together.

But I must admit, I have failed every single time.

I never gave myself a chance to sit back and question my motives. Instead of asking why I constantly felt obligated to pick up someone else’s broken pieces, I ran to pick them up without a second thought.
Being selfless made me think that coming second didn’t matter because I was putting someone else’s worthiness first. And in the end, rank doesn’t matter, right?

I realized that the reason I was attracting these types of men was because I believed I could save them.

As selfless, thoughtful, giving women, we think we will be “that woman”—the one who will change them.
We think we can turn a cheater into a loyal boyfriend.
We think we can help him walk away from the drugs and alcohol.
We believe we can help him get over his commitment issues and aim for a stable future with us.
We trust that we can get rid of the emotional baggage that he has been carrying for years.
We attract these men because we believe they need us.
And to leave them would be selfish, insensitive and ruthless.

The sad news is, we constantly blame ourselves when they don’t change. Every time they fail us, we think it’s because we failed them.
Their hold on us becomes stronger; they keep us around knowing they have nothing to offer.
It’s just my view.

22 Hospitality Limited buys Sheraton’s parent company, Capital Hotels

Published

Theheute-

Capital Hotels Plc, owners of the Abuja-based luxury hotel, Sheraton, said 22 Hospitality Limited has procured 66.1 per cent of its outstanding shares in exchange for a controlling stake in the company.

A purchase of a company’s total issued shares crossing the 50 per cent threshold is deemed a buyout. Capital Hotels has not posted annual profit in the last two years.

The transaction is the end of a series of off-market deals conducted for months, and means Hans Gremlin Nigeria Limited will be yielding to 22 Hospitality Limited the ownership crown it had worn for two decades.

“All the required regulatory approvals have been received for the transaction,” Capital Hotels said in a statement posted on the Nigerian Exchange’s website.

Capital Hotels set out earlier in the year to raise capital for, what it said, was the renovation of the hotel.

The board sought to approach it by way of rights issue and made a proposal during an emergency general meeting in April to sell new shares to existing shareholders at N7 per share at a time a unit was selling for N3.19 in the market.

A refusal by shareholders to endorse the offer for fear it would erode their rights meant the board turned to private placement as a second option. In all, 1,611,995,510 shares were allotted to 22 Hospitality Hospital at N7 per unit when that was concluded, totaling N11.3 billion.

The company’s share price, which had been stuck at N3.19 for at least seven months to 23rd May, jumped to N3.40 that date but has not moved again ever since.

Altogether, the new owner’s holding in the firm translates to 2,090,199,140 ordinary shares.

Bank of Industry Limited, Ministry of Finance Incorporated, Nigeria Re-insurance Corporation and Continental Energy Resources Limited are among the substantial shareholders of Capital Hotels, its 2021 audited financial statement shows.
