Image
Popular Nigerian Hip-Hop artiste with the name " Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel", also known as Dammy Krane alleged credit card fraud on 2nd June, 2017 has raised lot of eye popping reactions from Nigerians home and abroad. According to TripJet, the Faleela crooner booked for private airline with fake credit card. His action was therefore narrowed to a 9 count charge which revolves around grand theft, credit card fraud, intent to defraud, identity fraud, forgery, and conspiracy.

Why Ijebu-Ode Will Not Experience Desired Development Anytime Soon

Image
Ijebu-Ode, one of the popular town in the heart of Ogun State - Nigeria, remains less-developed from earliest time till date for numerous reasons. One of which is why people move in and out of the area majorly for celebrating yuletide season (Ileya, New Year, Ojude Oba...). It is, therefore, worrisome when rich folks of Ijebu origin flocks around major cities within and outside Nigeria, leaving their beloved home in an apologetic state. This state is apologetic because Ijebu-Ode could not boast of certain essential elements (good roads, employment opportunities, sound/affordable public health care system, vibrant business activities...). There are numerous factors raised to justify why Ijebu-Ode will not experience development anytime soon among her contemporaries. Carefully, go through these factors and see for yourself Interest of Ijebu's It is often believed that interest of indigenes is a formidable factor to consider whenever there is a need for change and develo

Why You Don't Have to Joke with this Season of Ramadan

Image
Ramadan! Ramadan!! Ramadan!!! It is another season for Muslims all around the Globe to observe their yearly fasting and prayer. The importance of this season to Nigerians is nothing one can shy away from due to the awkward experiences in Nigeria today. Actually, no sensible being from any religious background; Islam, Christianity or Traditional should be pleased with the situation of things in Nigeria. Hence, praying and fasting is a necessity for all and sundry regardless of their religious preference. Although, current acting President - Prof Yemi Osibajo said lately that Nigeria's situation has gone past fasting and prayer. Am sure he said that due to the level of havoc done by past governments. ALSO READ; Five Places Knowledge Can Be Easily Acquired in Life I, therefore, obliged all and sundry to neglect the declaration of Acting President and purely dedicate their body, mind and soul (BMS) for the fasting and praying programme which is capable of resuscitating

Five Places Knowledge can be Easily Acquired in Life (No 3 will Surprise you)

Image
There is no gainsaying "Knowledge is Power" when there is no particular place linkable to such saying. Arguably, learning starts from one's cradle and ends at one's death. There exist some designated institutions/establishments to instil discipline and knowledge about how life operates. Noticeably, the starting point of an individual learning begins with his/her family . Here, family members imbibe or teach new and existing members acceptable ways of life - behavioural expectations are imbibed in the life of children so as not to be a scapegoat of life and government. Another important institution that teaches people real hard is the school system at a different level. At the primary level, the 3R's (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic) is the focal point of the institutions while the next level built on the 3R's to prepare one for the higher institution. At the entry of higher citadel of learning, students focus on their courses estranged with

How to Save People from Committing Suicide in a Breathtaking Economy

Image
When someone we love or acquainted with commits suicide, the most common question on our lips is 'Why did he/she do that?' especially in cases where the victim did not leave behind any clue as to the reason why. I feel our lips should be dancing not to gossips nor our assumptions as to what made the victim resort to suicide but to what we could have done to help as family, friends, neighbour or acquaintance.  Many a time, we respond to people's indirect cry for help in very harsh manner. We say things like 'If you don't like it, go and die', 'Do you feel you are the only one with problems in this world?', e.t.c. Though, those words are not intended to hurt other people's feelings but it could happen to do just that.  READ ALSO; How to Connect Speedily to Your Future We would be surprised at how much a 'simple accidental smile' or a 'good morning', could make another person's day better.

Why Big Brother Naija TV Show is Culturally Disastrous to Nigerians

Image
  People of different races in the world - white, black, half-caste hold in high esteem different things about their life; outlook, lifestyle, choice/preference among other options. As regards things about oneself, there are some things that should be private to an extent; physically, socially, spiritually, financially and all the``-ly`` you can ever think of. But when what is supposed to be private has been aired, then it is no more private except when it is without the permission of the victim, then, it is simply invasion of privacy which attracts legal implication. Gone are those days when the human genitals have pride and sexual intercourse was private, done with dignity and enjoyed by wedded couples but now, reverse is the case. I don't have a problem with anyone having s3x with an unmarried person or even animals (only God will cleanse the land) . What I have a problem with is having s3x and publicizing it. We now have more porn stars than graduates, I mean what i

Forbidden Fruits Ate by Nigerians in Diaspora; Tips and Considerations

Worries and Shame of Celebrating Ex-Convict with the Caption "Lion is Back"

Image
The return of the former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, from UK jail has been applauded as a great defeat by his kinsmen. The Oghara born was welcomed with great celebration, ranging from thanksgiving to congratulatory messages on the media, even after serving a 13-year jail term in the United Kingdom. Personally, I have less issue with people (of Delta state) painting the whole town red to celebrate his “victorious” return, what I'm mostly concerned about is the metaphor used to describe him in a congratulatory message in one of the Nigerian dailies-“the lion is back”.  SEE ALSO; President Muhammadu Buhari Death Rumour - Tips and Considerations I cannot but be perplexed at the pride, effrontery, and encouragement these people have given him to do more.  What is so “ lionable ” in being an ex-convict? A disgrace to the nation,  A bad example to the youth,  A  living testimony of corruption -  who used looted public funds to buy luxury homes; fleet o

Reasons Why President Muhammadu Buhari and co Seek Medical Care Abroad

Image
The notion "health is wealth" is not just an assertion to the rich (as against the poor who placed survival first) but rather a do or die affair. In essence, the rich people "World Leaders", "Business Moguls", "Celebrities" (Entertainment Icon) seems to spend more money checking and rechecking their health status on a day-day basis for continuity of their lifespan. Due to the differences in the level of development across countries - such people tend to sort medical care within or outside their locals. The case of African leaders is a pointer to the level of their structural (health in particular) imbalances which amongst other grant them the peripheral seat (as used by Immanuel Wallerstein). In simplicity, there are many developed nations of today (Cuba, America, United Kingdom, Malaysia, India, Israel...) which are way ahead of others (sub-Saharan Africa in particular) by standard of health care service and it's delivery to urban-

How Religion influences Politics; Pastor E.A. ADEBOYE Legacy

Image
Religion and Politics from anywhere in the world (Nigeria inclusive) has never been for once "dissected" or totally independent from the other i.e. religion influences politics either negatively or positively and vice versa. The practicality of the aforementioned cannot be underestimated due to the accounts, records, happenings and scenario in the world today.  To mention but a few, is it the; role played by the Islamic terrorist group overtime - ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram  role of Emir of Kano and Sokoto at local level power vested in the hands of Pope or Imam on foreign affairs might (weight) in their utterances as regards issue affecting the peace and stability of the state. Another unexpected/unanticipated rapport between religion and politics is attached to the recent action of the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (R.C.C.G) home and abroad in person of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye. The much celebrated G.O personally decided to step-dow

December - the last, never the least of the 12 disciples is always loaded with powerful, intriguing and jaw dropping programmes (religious and co) from anywhere in the World. Noticeably, Churches (Old and New Testament) today had never underestimated the fact that "Decembers' Case is Different" as majority (if not all) of them loaded it with their annual programmes. Living Faith Church Worldwide often called the Winners Chapel, holds her annual programme tagged "My Case is Different" come 6th December, through 10th December, 2016 at the usual arena "Canaan land" at Ota in Ogun State.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Side of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)

Image
The essence of National Youth Service Corps has been a bone of contention among all and sundry (academias, celebrities...) from time immemorial - one party supporting its continuity for national integration while the other negates it totally for its shallow impact on graduates and his after life. Having served some years back, I bring you the joy, shocks and the tears of the scheme "NYSC" termed - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Side of the Game. GOOD SIDE OF NYSC The beauty of NYSC lies in its Three Weeks Orientation Course filled with lot of electrifying moments with people from other regions of the country. The camping for three weeks is always like a lifetime in itself because it leaves corpers with more than enough memories (bad/good) to live with.    Without mincing word, here are the good side of NYSC; It enhances spirit of nationalism and patriotism It preaches love amidst ethno-religious issues It encourages self on life after school It breeds spirit

Success in life agreeably is all about proper preparation and determination of individual in any calling but many predators could scupper the chances - academic performance and achievement is no exception. Academic performance of student today is a compendium of factor within and outside the learner's realm - school factor, teacher factor, parent factor, environmental fact and student factor. The master keys of all is the S.T.E - School, Teacher and the Environment having agreed that the student factor is well tidied. The school characteristic is quite important to the attitude, perception and knowledge shown by student on/off campus.
