Blast your CV real good with that. Don’t scratch your head ‘cos you have one. Your LLB project or long essay will do. If you have other publications then wink at me and tell yourself “My CV is gonna rock!”

A good CV is the one that gets you an invitation to a job test or interview! The best CV gets you the job. A CV is like an advert, and like the advert practitioners would say, “a good ad is the one that sells”. A CV that can’t fetch you at least an invitation for a job interview is like they say in local parlance, serious bad market.

#1Tight Security
There was presence of security officials but not as much as that of Day 4. Though the Vice President was around, security was relaxed around the venue. Thorough searches were conducted for dangerous weapons and people without tags turned away except they have any evidence to identify themselves as delegates such as tellers or receipts of payments. Handwritten name tags were also used.

The arrival of State House Security Operatives tightened the security leash. I was denied entry at first. “We cannot afford a security breach” the State House Security Operative told me. The connecting gate from the ICC to NICON was sealed and thus we had to do almost a 60 degrees walk to NICON. However, the security operatives were very civil. Despite that, fear no gree me take pictures of them oh.
