JOS PROFILED ON VTPASS

If there is ever any one activity that will always keep people connected and tickled, it’s travelling. Well, not that kind of travelling you do to go see your relatives or take a new wife. But the adventurous, thrilling travels.Really, it’s fun to visit places way different from what you are used to. You not only get the tingle of changing locations and living a different life in a different time frame, you also get to learn many new, exciting things as well as pick up on some habits and friends that might just change your life. So, if you are looking for a new place to explore and spread your wings, you might just want to try out Jos.

Jos is the capital of Plateau State. And Plateau is one of the thirty-six states in Nigeria. Jos, as a city, has quite a reckoning reputation and heritage which have earned it a place in the heart of locals and other expatriates.

josBefore we get to talk more about Jos, you would like to know that VTpass identifies with this great city and its people. Our presence is beyond doubt felt as we have made it very easy for nationals to pay for their bills with speed. Just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can, from anywhere in Jos, pay for your electricity bills, phone airtimes, data subscriptions, cable tv subscriptions and lots more.

In any case, here are certain things you should know about Jos.

History

josEvery place has a history, no doubt, and Jos is not excluded. Jos is said to have been the natural home of the Nok people. These Nok, who were mostly artisans have since not been found on the Jos grounds. Instead, a group of farming population now inhabit the place. Also, the area gained credence when tin was discovered in its vicinity. This drew the attention of the British colonials in those days. And it also caused a lot of people to migrate there. So that, at the moment, the city actually contains a mix of tribes and people. Even till now, Jos is known as the Tin City.

josName

Again, it would surprise you to know that this city was not exactly named Jos. According to some historians, the original Nok dwellers named it Gwosh. But when a group of Hausa migrants came, they could not quite get to say the word Gwosh. Instead, what they were able to pronounce was Jos. And the name just stuck over time. Not only that, other historians say Jos is a clip from the full name Jasad. The British who could not say Jasad or Jas just as well called it Jos.

Population

josFrom the 2006 census, it is easy enough to say that Jos has a population of 900,000 people. But with the years gone by, this number must have increased. This is not to talk of the constant incoming of people who cannot get enough of the place.

  • Tourist Centres

  • josTalking about those who can’t get enough, Jos is a sweetheart site for most tourists. And it is also a choice getaway for holiday seekers and vacationists. Why is this so? Well, there is the numerous beautiful places in Jos to start with. Talk of the National Museum, the Wildlife Park, the Rayfield golf centre and resort. Also, we have the University of Jos, with its teaching hospital. You want to feel the pump of the academic world, then this is a place to visit.
  • jos One particular place to go see is the Shere Hills, with its Riyom rocks that just about looks animated. Then the Ahmadu Bello Roundabout, the Pottery Hill, Jos-Bukuru dam are places for art and science oriented ones to take delight in. We can go on and on talking about places to see. The bottom line is a tourist can never get bored in Jos.

Jos Electric

josSo, all of these sightseeing and fun will not go down well if there is no stable energy support to go by. Well, Jos Electricity Distribution Company is that radiant part of Jos that supplies electricity to the people. When you go to Jos, visiting them is not such a bad idea. But if you just want to pay your bills, you do not need to go that far. All you need do is log on to www.vtpass.com, pay your bill and just like that, you get constant electricity.

Also, you can pay for other services like your MTN, 9MOBILE, GLO, AIRTEL  phone airtimes and data subscriptions. You can also pay for your DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV subscriptions.

Food

jos

So yes, you must admit that a great place without a great food culture is not great. Then you would like to know that Jos is not lacking when it comes to food. For one, there are new, great, delicious dishes you can pick from the city like the Habib Yoghurt, Tuwo, Kunu etc. Also, there are really nice places to go if you want to be treated to awesome intercontinental dishes. Located in the Railway Terminus market is the Felak Burger Bistro and Meat Shop. Apart from this, the Net Cafe also treats you to great desserts. And for a great main meal, just find your to The Lass. Again, one good thing about this place is that food items, especially agricultural products, are very affordable.

Security

josIn spite of the religious and ethnic clashes that sometimes occurs in this area, there is still a lot of peace and love between locales in the city. Also, the city is very accommodating and accepts guests well.

Climate

josNow, ask any tourist and one good news they will tell you about Jos is the climate. Jos is always very cool and temperate even at high altitudes. So that, every once in a while, snowfalls occur. The cool climate and airy atmosphere is one feat no other place in the tropical region of Africa can quite boast of.

Airports

If you already are thinking of visiting this amazing place, then you might like to know about Jos’ main airport. Yakubu Gowon Airport, that’s the name. However, there is also an internal airport called Jos Airport that transports people from Lagos to Jos.

  • So, at any time you decide to take a leap and cross over to Jos, remember this. VTpass, with its convenient online payment platform www.vtpass.com, will always be everywhere welcoming you with ease and in grand style.

IKEJA ELECTRIC DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

Ikeja electricity distribution centre is one of the eleven distribution centres responsible for supplying energy to Nigerians across the country. Indeed, they are one formidable distribution centres. In the sense that they supply light to the very economic hub of the country, Lagos. But there are certain things you would want to know and establish about them.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IKEJA ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

  1. Privatised: This is already a foreknowledge. So, right from the 1st of November, 2013, the power sector underwent a bold privatisation reform. Really, this has helped decentralise and put the supply of electricity in the hands of private people. Also, this is made possible due to the NEDC/KEPCO Consortium
  2. ; Largest: You would also want to know that Ikeja Electric is the largest distribution company. As they have over 600,000 customers.
  3. Means of Payment: What is astounding about them is how they have made possible easy and convenient means of payment. Vtpass just happens to be at the forefront of these credible means of payment. Just by logging in to www.vtpass.com, you can conveniently pay for your Ikeja Electric bills. And this happens in just three easy steps- Log on, Select, Pay.
  4. Ikeja is not Eko- Also, you must know that Ikeja Electric is not the same thing as Eko Electric. And they definitely do not operate in the same capacity. Most importantly, however, is the fact that they do not operate in the same location. While Ikeja Electric works for those in the Mainland, Eko Electric applies for those on the Island. Consequently, your area of living largely determines just where you are to pay your electricity bills.

These are the locative units controlled by Ikeja Electric DISCO.

GIRL CHILD DAY: A TRIBUTE TO SHE BY VTPASS.COM

She is just a word, but it can do more to embody every woman who has walked the surface of the earth. She- the little girl who learns to accept her role as a homemaker. She- the young teen who must know how to live for other people before thinking of herself. She- the university student that must earn a degree and also earn a proficiency in cooking. She- the married woman who can’t simply seem to keep tabs of the many things she has going for her.

Obviously, a She always has commitments to her family, workplace and the society.

she,girl,vtpassSometimes, in the midst of trying to stay afloat, she loses herself. So that there is usually no time to attend to the several wee but important details that complete us. There is no time to have a fun TV time because the decoder stays inactive most times. Why? Because she just can’t make out time to go pay the bills.

she,girl,vtpassAnd as if that’s not all. Most times, she even forgets the very important things. She needs to make an early call but somehow forgets to recharge your phone.  She needs electricity to work. But the moment she steps into the office is the moment she remembers she has not paid your bill.

she,girl,vtpassWithout a doubt, these things put her off at times and make some days frustrating. But she is human. And humans live to forget just as they forget to live. Well, for this she, there is one simple, secure way to avoid and correct these human tendencies, and that’s through www.vtpass.com.

she.girl,vtpassAll shes must agree that one way to ensure they meet up with everything they need to do is by delegating tasks. And yes, www.vtpass.com is one such platform that helps you do that. You can delegate the stressful, forgetful task of paying for your bills to www.vtpass.com. With www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions, phone airtimes, and data subscriptions.

she,vtpass,girlThere is also one more She. This is the one who has been battered, abused, put down, choked by life’s throes and caught in the thicket of arising matters. To this she, we, at VTpass, can only say stay strong. Redemption lies near.

VTpass celebrates this day, International Girl Child Day, with every she.

SERVICE DELIVERY: HOW TO AVOID ANY DISAPPOINTMENT

Have you ever had something fail just at the point you need it? No salt just when you need to season your food. A massive brake failure just when you need to travel. A funny, heavy downpour of rain when you had planned to take your woman or man to somewhere ‘special’. Name it. Disappointments can be frustrating. But what is more frustrating than not being able to get a service just when you need it- airtime, data, electricity, and constant TV time. That’s pretty frustrating, especially when you need to make a life-changing call or send that one email that will turn things around for you.

service, vtpassAnd what is even irking is that these things that seem quite easy to get sometimes will not be accessible for very funny reasons. For one, it might be a public holiday and the all available outlets to get any of these services might be under locks. Again, you find yourself in any place where getting to buy recharge card, paying your electricity bill or renewing your tv subscription is as good as walking about, looking for a pin in the whole of Sahara Desert. You might be a little bit under the weather and incapable of going around or it might just be that the recharge card you end up buying has been used!

service,vtpassReally, there are lots of reasons you might not get your everyday services just when you need them. But there is one service that does not disappoint at any time or anywhere and that’s VTpass.

INTERNET BROADBAND AND HOW IT WORKS

If you were the regular office guy or babe who has to stare at a laptop 24/7 and go global right from your small cubicle or closet at work, then you would already realise that you cannot, no, you must not rely on just any data provider to get vital work stuff done. There are various ways to buy data to keep your laptop plugged into the rest of the world and work more effectively. And one of these ways is through the many available internet broadband options.

Whatever the case, getting a good data connection and staying tuned has been made easier to access through the fast leading online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. At www.vtpass.com, you can easily make payments for your phone airtimes, data subscriptions, electricity bills, cable TV subscriptions. And subsequently, you can pay for your Broadband services.

When it comes to the internet connection, broadband is used to refer to speedy internet access that stays on at any point you want it to. It is also faster than the other conventional ways of accessing the net. In Nigeria, internet broadband has not always been much of an option until the recent past. But right now, Nigeria is one of the leading nations in Africa to which the superfast 4G LTE Broadband has been introduced. Despite still being a nestling sector in telecommunications, there are quite a few good companies who provide the 4G LTE Broadband services in Nigeria. And who are they? That’s what you are about to find out.

LISTS OF TOP 4G LTE BROADBAND PROVIDERS IN NIGERIA

SMILE COMMUNICATIONS NIGERIA

smile,broadband,vtpassDespite being a newcomer in offering broadband services, Smiles has become one of the three biggest contenders in the market. More than that, they offer the widest range of internet coverage. Starting from Oyo state and then moving to Lagos state, Smiles has grown at quite an admirable rate.

Recently, Smiles has partnered with Samsung to produce the first 4G LTE complaint Smartphone in Nigeria. Not just that, the portability of their broadband options and its affordability for all have made many say they are indeed the first 4G LTE service provider in Nigeria.

SWIFT NETWORK LIMITED

spectranet,broadband,vtpassThis is yet another very fast broadband service provider. They also have the advantage of being one of the first internet service providers in Nigeria. This is so because they commenced their operations in 2002. Usually, their service stations are very much accessible. Also, they have several unlimited data plans that are readily available. The one disadvantage to this network is that they are based mainly in Lagos and its availability.

SPECTRANET

spectranet,vtpassThe list will not be complete without the mention of Spectranet. They are one of the abiding internet service providers in Nigeria. And they operate at the seats of economic growth and expansion- Lagos and Abuja. Spectranet operates in the same manner as Swift.

At the core of all these broadband services is www.vtpass.com. Visiting www.vtpass.com grants you guaranteed ease and swiftness in paying for and buying such services as MTN, GLO, 9MOBILE, AIRTEL airtimes and data subscriptions as well as your electricity bills, DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV subscriptions and so much more. And this can be done in three easy steps- LOG ON TO WWW.VTPASS.COM, SELECT YOUR SERVICE AND PAY.

KWESE TV COMES TO THE LIMELIGHT

Are you ready to pay less for something bigger? Ok, this is not www.vtpass.com trying to get your heart to the skies by talking about our cheap, easy and convenient payment method. These words, are rather, in the voice of TSTV AFRICA. Yes, you must have heard of them. They are launching a Pay-as-you-consume TV on and we, at vtpass.com, have opened up an easy portal through which you can pay for their services. In any case, this is not the entire story. Apart from TSTV AFRICA who are launching in style, there is a whole new brand of entertainment hitting our big screen and that’s Kwese TV.

So, you might be wondering who has initiated yet another timely intervention in the Pay-Tv entertainment sector. Well, you would know in a bit. Do you remember the very first service provider that brought the sim card revolution into Nigeria, just in time to supplement the increasing patronage of cell phones? That’s Econet, right? It would amuse you to know that Kwese TV is a brand of Econet Media Limited.

Though they may be taking the underground tunnels this time around, Kwese TV is coming strong into the Nigerian market, just as well as TSTV. And they cannot be underappreciated as they are, in more ways than one, taking Pay-TV to a whole new different level.

AMAZING THINGS KWESE TV HAS TO OFFER

kwese tv,vtpassFirst off, Kwese TV is taking audiences beyond TV into several other realms that were once thought unimaginable. Not only can you watch Kwese TV on your TV via the satellite, you can also watch it on your TV via the Internet. This can be done through a medium called Kwese Play. As if this is not enough, Kwese TV also has an app so that you can watch on the go. This is called the Kwese App.

Again, there are pretty amazing tv channels that probably you have come across on other Pay-TVs. But some channels are absolutely new and innovative. For instance, we have channels like Arsenal media, Safe Entertainment etc.

Even as Kwese TV continues to penetrate the market, be sure that vtpass.com will, waste no time, in opening a portal that assures you quick and easy payment for all of Kwese TV’s services, ranging from the payment for their physical satellite to the internet access and access to the mobile app.

Also, www.vtpass.com offers easy and convenient payments for your 9mobile, Airtel, MTN and GLO airtime and data subscriptions. We also allow for ease and convenience in the payment of your DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV subscriptions and electricity bills.

But hey, in her down moment, Tiwa hooks up with interesting guys, guys that would have been considered suitable for only skinny girls.

API: LET VTPASS.COM SERVE YOU WELL

The first question that will be on your lips is what is an API?

Well, here is a textbook definition:

An API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” An API is a set of commands, function, protocols and objects that programmers can use to create software or interact with an external system. It provides developers with standard commands for performing common operations so they do not have to write the code from scratch.

But not all of us are computer geeks or nerds. Ok, most of us are not. So here are simple, fun ways of understanding what an Application Programming Interface (API)  is:

You buy an extension, which you intend using to charge your phone, laptop and the likes. For the extension to work, you are not going to plug straight to the transformer next to your house, or the wire transmitting electric current to you, right? No, you need an interface. Something that can stand in the gap and collect the energy from the electric current down to you. You need a socket. This socket which is usually connected to a wire on the wall serves as an interface to which you plug your extension. This in response to the interface, enables you to charge your phone and any other thing.

The API is just like that socket, except it is something you can’t see and it has more to do with the internet world.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

You want to buy rice and chicken from your favourite restaurant. Now, do you just go into the kitchen where it is being cooked or stored? And then demand a plate of rice and chicken? Of course, not, there is an attendant, a waiter. In this case, an interface that delivers your request for a hamburger to the kitchen staff. They in response to your request, hand over the food to the waiter, who will, in turn, place it before you. And then, lunch or dinner is served. Or breakfast, if you are the one that does late meals or does not fancy the routine bread, tea and egg.

The waiter has served as an API, relaying messages for you all in a bid to deliver a service. You must have guessed by now that in the real sense, the person making the request is not a person, but codes. Just like the waiter and kitchen staff responding to the requests are are all codes.

So, simply put, APIS are messengers that take requests from a user end, go to the right quarters to deliver the message.  And then relays back an answer to the user again. In a technical sense, you use an API when you employ the code written by someone else or their database for your own purpose, or to service your own website.

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW API?

There are a lot of ways knowing how the API works can profit an average online business person. Say, you have a natural hair blog that sometimes needs to display videos. You might not have these videos at all. But by integrating Youtube’s API to your site, these videos can be displayed on your site.

It is through this the API that many videos on YouTube get featured on sites that clearly are not Youtube. Another easy way of using API is having a website where you need people to sign in or login. Because you know Google or Facebook already have the sign in feature which is way professional.  On proper request, you can simply use Google or Facebook’s sign in feature. So that, what you will have on your own website is “sign in with Google or Login with Facebook”. You might be nodding in understanding right now. That’s good, but there is something even better.
