Hi everybody!

Am glad to greet you once again.

Am @lovveday from Nigeria, i saw the recent update from @steemitblog and i found it very intresting so i decided to participate.

In my country Nigeria, as of presently, everywhere is heated up due to the ongoing protest.

The placard inscription is: #endsars, #endswat #endbadgovernance.

Few minutes ago, the edo state govt announced a curfew in the state which means no movement.

I needed to take pictures of my environment and participate in the challenge so i stepped out to snap this.

Our workplace(store) also used occassionally as our house.

We used those green nets to cover our window because of the mosquitoes that enters through the window. Our area is full of bush and there is a pit in front of us that grows mighty swam of mosquitoes everyday and the owner refuses to cover it.

The side of our house

This is the place where we grow our food. We planted yams here last year and the harvest was bounty. We left the land to gather more strength this year so we can plant again next year. Look at our banana and plaintain plantation. I harvested two bunch of plaintain yesterday and i just ate some plaintains.😋😋

The pit (soakaway)

The soakaway was built for this uncompleted building close to it. It generate most of the mosquitoes around. I dont get sick frequently due to malaria, because my body now have the ability to manage it.

This is my lane of my street.

Presently, the junction of the street is blocked with the chairs from a funiture maker. All due to the ongoing protest like i mentioned above👆 before. The main road is void of vehicles. Chairs and tables are on the roads. You ticket to pass is a green plant, to show you support the protest.

It seems charming.

Na. My area is very bizzard. Other places i saw in other post was more healthy, beautiful and organised.

Thats why we are begging our govt to help us.

I did a check up and saw that @steemcurator01 did not vote my post. Even after walking past the tag #mytown10pics. Maybe it not quality enough.

Although he didnt visit any of my diaries. To say the truth, it does bother me, that i cant satisfy their taste. But it wont make me stop posting on steemit.
