Are you Ready for the Future you Beckoning to Come?

Image
The central idea of this post was curled from one of the Facebook live session of popular multiple Amazon Bestselling Author, an award-winning Entrepreneur, and International Speaker " Edirin Edewor ". The theme of the session was: so you want to go viral? In the session, I learnt the importance of being ready for the future we calling to come. How we get set before it happens? All credit goes to her for continually shunning out values every now and then. From the session, I saw that preparedness is the mother of success. Your preparedness now determines your future when it finally comes. How prepared are you for the journey? Edirin shared three stories in the live session but I will share one here. One of the stories she shared was about Amanda Gorman, the first National Youth Poet Laureate at the age of 22years. Her story got to me because of how hardwork and persistence pay within a twinkle of an eye. Note, you only need one person, one moment, one event, one idea, one pla

Why Ponzi Scheme is not for you? See Five (5) Important Lessons

We all want to make money and live happily, right? It's a good thing. The path to get riches and happiness is what separates us. Some of us are so heady about getting rich through the fast route while some people are so calm and strategic to delay the gratification towards getting rich. Whichever way you sought, it usually comes with consequences. Fast-illegal routes can be so sweet at first, burning and painful eventually while the long elongated routes might be stressful and worth it at the end of the day.  Ponzi schemes from MMM down to the recent one "RACKSTERLY" came to teach us lessons. I was once a victim too but the loss was well calculated and prepared for in my own case. Let me tell you my story. For a very long time, my clique knows I don't believe and deal in money doubling schemes no matter who is selling the idea to me. Fortunately, I keyed into Tradera's educational plan to learn how to make money through FOREX. In the midst of work and familial eng

What puts you off in the current situation of Nigeria? As for me, it is...

almost everything from the beginning to the end? I will be so unfair if I say that. However, what exactly can we say makes us happy under this current administration? Food, Electricity, Roads, Healthcare, Security, just name it. The list is so long that we can't even look into it holistically in this post.  As for me, my major worry about this country right now is the state of the road. The roads are bad at least from what I have seen down south; Lagos-Ogun axis. What a pity to see humans ply such roads in the 21st century! Normally, that roads are not friendly for animals of all categories, how much more us. I cannot imagine the way and manner the agencies in charge of road management does their things. Damn! It's so crazy to think big-big granites could be dumped on the roads to fill the potholes without using machines to run it over before use. Unfortunately, this is our reality in Nigeria which has therefore caused a lot of accidents for both the users and the car itself. I

Five (5) Safety Tips for Self-Security in Nigeria of Today.

Security of lives and properties is indeed a vital aspect of human endeavour in the course of running day-day activities. Removing security naturally turns everything upside down which is simply  the situation of the country, Nigeria. How did we get here under President Muhammadu Buhari's administration? And how can we edge over existing odds as an average Nigerian brothers and sisters? I think we are in this mess due to our recklessness as a country or say our reactive approach to important things. The government played their role by being too lackadaisical about security matters at its utmost beginning. This is why a lot of rural farmers and dwellers have lost their lives without any succor to quench the roaring fire before it gets out of hand. Now that it is out of hand, security operatives are not fully backed by the incumbency to pull down the strongholds. What do we do as average Nigerians? The ball is in our court and we must play it to our favour. We are meant to thread sof

Why Banditry Issue Persists in the Northern Part of Nigeria?

Image
For years now, some parts of the North has not been a safe haven for dwellers and immigrants due to the rising spate of terrorism and insurgency. This has been majorly propagated by the activities of Boko Haram groups, Shilla boys, herders and some other violent groups in the North.  With the look of happening in the Northern part of the country, it shows a wide range of insecurity threats for dwellers, travelers, immigrants, and business owners. All these threats has been linked to the bandits who some people claimed to be indigenous Fulanis while others see them as international mercenaries hired from neighbouring countries to disrupt the activities of the state. Why did our North become so unsecured overnight? This article will reveal few reasons why Banditry issue persists in the North today.

Nigerian Youths, Why Do Drugs?

The word drugs means different things to different people in different settings. Drugs as used in this article doesn't refer to the medicine prescribed by the medical doctors for one ailment or the other. It is simply the element used by an individual to energize, slow down, pump action, get high, cool off e.t.c. Examples of these drugs are; Colorado, Loud, Marijuana, Gum, Codeine, Refnol to mention but a few. These drugs are sniffed, drank or smoked which naturally comes with its side-effects. READ ALSO: How to Make the New Nigeria Possible What worries me more is the rate of drugs use by youths in this present age as against my days as a teenager. These youths now do drugs excessively with the notion of enjoying themselves. What happens to family gatherings? What happens to friends get-together? What happens to the midnight calls? What happens to tourism? What a shame we find ourself in this mess of excessive drug abuse! Some parents are contributors by being reckless in raising

Five (5) Indicators of Misplaced Priorities under President Muhammadu Buhari's Administration

Getting things right under any administration is the best approach to ensure the achievement of desired growth and development. In this path to achieve development, there are many decisions that the government must either be proactive or reactive about. At the extreme, where the government in power neglect the important things for the unimportant ones, it becomes worrisome how the nation wants to move forward. The latter is just the experience of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari with the indicators presented below in no particular order.  Call to Arrest Sunday Igboho To think there will be a call to arrest Sunday Igboho which is nowhere connected to receiving a national honour like MON, MFR is rather shocking. The call to arrest Sunday Igboho by the Federal Government of Nigeria is the least of the unexpected things where bandits are gallivanting all around town, Shekau is celebrating the kidnapping and killings of Nigerians on cameras, herders killing farmers and dwell
