The Nigerian Consulate in Jeddah is talking with authorities in Saudi Arabia about the hundreds of Nigerian women stranded for over five days at a Saudi Arabian airport.  These women have been denied entry and therefore their Hajj (mandatory travel to Mecca at least once per lifetime) completion.  The women have been denied because they are lacking a legal male escort.

  1. Well, you know, women driving can lead to severe accidents. You see, we have this horrible tendency of observing other women whilst we drive (we cannot control this and there is no known cure……yeah, no 12-step program for us.) We just need a chaperone. Naturally, these boys were late……again!

    I love your avatar! Is that your stinkin angel baby?
