LEADERSHIP: PERSONAL MEMOIR ON CHRISTMAS.—(5 MINUTES READ).

I presented this write-up on facebook on the 25th of December 2017 while at home but now I decided to present it to all my viewers,readers and followers as a source of resources and materials that will stand as an addition to learning,understanding and knowledge that will remain evergreen and relevant in the test of time.

 

 

 

Human existence has been defined and described in totality by either the beauty of one moment or the ugliness of another moment.

 

 

 

The reality of the beauty of our existence is pendulum between reality of goodness and the reality of ugliness.

 

 

 

The existence of mankind on earthly pedestal has been about  one moment or another moment that either make or mar the purpose of human existence.

 

 

We remember some moments and smile and we remember some moments with disdain and gnashing of teeth.It is the reality of either good or bad that the existence of mankind has been destined by nature or by the creator.

 

It is on this truth and reality that it became expedient and reasonable for every human to appreciate every moment of our existence and nuture it with utmost carefulness so that we can remain at peace with ourselves and with everything around us.

 

 

It is a good thing to cherish and appreciate good moments  and it is understandable to be downcasted when bad moments beckons as a reality.

 

 

 

One of the moments of human existence that demands appreciation and value is this period of festivities and the coming yuletide.Though,situations around us might be against appreciation and thanksgiving but it is expedient for anyone who is deep to  cherish the fact that in the course of 2017,many lifes have gone yonder.

With or without the neccessities of celebration,it is another 25th of December,it is a known day across the length and breadth of the world for the celebration of the remembrance of the birth of JESUS CHRIST.

 

 

CHRISTMAS

 

 

The nativity of JESUS CHRIST  and the stories accompany HIS birth signifies simplicity,humility,humanness,  selflessness,sacrifice,good tidings and greatness.

 

 

 

This is simply a pointer to the meaning of what christianity should be.

 

 

 

JESUS CHRIST gave us the meaning and the purpose of what human existence should be at the point of HIS birth.

 

 

 

JESUS CHRIST exhibited humaness,simplicity,humility,selflesness and sacrifice before HE achieved greatness but many on the other hand believed in putting the cart before the horse instead of putting the horse before the cart by desiring greatness without exhibiting a title of humility,humaness,selflessness and sacrifice which are the major descriptions of what every human being is purposed to offer in the course of our existence on earth.

 

 

This has created an abberation in understanding what leadership is all about and we have all been suffering for this misconception and misunderstanding.

 

 

The message of Christmas is a message that centre around teaching on good leadership by JESUS CHRIST at the point of birth.HIS birth in the manger is a message that points to the essence of good leadership that has become a luxury in the entire world.

 

 

No one will become or emerge a good leader and exhibit the purpose of good leadership without making his followers and surbordinates achieve their purpose,and their welfare and well-being becoming a priority that must not be compromised,played with and watered down.

 

 

 

On this note,with the whole fibre of my being,I wish everyone Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year ahead.

 

 

 

Keep basking in the euphoria of a splendid yuletide.

At least 200 people have been killed and scores are missing in the southern Philippines after a tropical storm triggered severe flooding and landslides that also wrecked Christmas for tens of thousand of survivors.

 

 

Tropical storm Temblin lashed Mindanas island,home to 20million people,on Friday with strong gusts and torrential rain,wiping out at least one mountain village and prompting a massive rescue operation.

 

 

Police said 144 people remained missing while more than 40,000 had fled their homes to evacuation camps at Temblin roared out into South China early sunday.

 

 

A total of 70,000 have been displaced or otherwise affected by the storm according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies(IFRC),which warned that continued heavy rain could hamper the search for survivors.

 

 

 

 

 

TYPHOON 2.jpg

 

“People left everything behind when they fled for their live,”the IFRC’s Philippines operations and programmes manager Patrick Elliot said in a statement.

 

 

The archipelago nation is pummelled by major storms every year,many of them deadly.Mindanas tends to be less affected and officials said this may have caused many to ignore warnings to move to safer ground.

 

 

 

 

 

VILLAGE ERASED.

One of the places hit hardest was the mountain village of Dalama,which was virtually wiped off the map as rampaging flood waters carried away 103 houses.

 

 

Footage on ABS-CBN showed houses were destroyed or engulfed by floodwaters and rescuers retrieving the body of a girl buried in a landslide.

 

 

Police,soldiers and volunteers used shovels and their bare hands to dug through mud and debris in their search for survivors.

 

 

 

“The flood was already close and the people were not able to get out from their homes”Armando Sangcopan,an elderly male survivor,told the station.

 

 

 

“We called for forced evacuation,preemptive evacuation in certain areas.We are saddened by the (large) numbers of casualties.”

 

 

Romina Marasigan,spokeswoman for the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council told reporters in Manila.

 

 

In the town of Kabasalan in Zamboanga,dozens of family huddled in the homes f neighbours on Christmas Eve,two days after the flood carried off 40 houses killing three people with one other missing,said local civil defense chief Junalyn Masarillo.

 

 

 

“This a disaster.They dont think about Christmas.All they think about is what they will eat today,”she told AFP.

 

 

The storm swept into south China Sea before sunday after hitting the western tourist island of Palawan overnight saturday,the state weather service said.

 

 

“So far zero casualies,but we have accounts of some people missing.Palawan civil defence Zaldy Ablana told DZMM radio on sunday.

 

 

But in Palawan fishing village,a 53-year-old manwas killedby crocodile while seecuring his boat in a river.

 

 

 

Temblin struck  less than a week  a Tropical Storm Kai-Tak left scores dead and more thatn 20 missing in the central Pihilippines,straining the disaster- prone  nation already stretched resources. 

 

 

The deadliest typhoon to hit the conytry is still Haiyab,which killed thousands nd destroyed enyire town heavily populated ares of the Central Phillipine in November 2013.

Carey’s performance during last year’s show in Times Square was marked by embarrassing problems.The “All I want For Chrstmas is You” singer stopped singing during the performance a few times and was visibly upset despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background.

 

 

 

The chaotic show went viral -but not for the right reason.

 

 

 

Following the show,Carey posted a meme of herself on socila media with the message”s-happens”.

 

 

“The fiasco also led to a public spat between carey and Dick Clark Productions as to who was at fault.

Carey’s camp claimed the production company sabotaged her show with technical glitches,inclusing a faulty ear piece.The production company denied the claims and reiterated that Carey,s performance was troubled because she didn’t properly rehearse.

 

 

However,it appears both camps has come to a truce.

 

 

“We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on Dick Clark’s New Years’ Rockin’Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018″.a joint statement released to the Associated Press said.”see you in Times Square!”

 

mARIAH CAREY 2

 

 

 

Carey will join Camilla Cabello,Nick Jonas and Sugarland as other acts slated to perform during the show.

 

 

mARIAH CAREY 1

 

 

 

Carey was also criticised for a performance she did during the 2014 Christmas in “Rockefeller Centre”tree-lighting ceremony.

 

 

 

Deadspin posted a video of Carey’s vocals only to highlight the  missed roles.

 

 

 

Carey apologized for the performance.

 

 

 

 

 

“Last night’s situation was beyond my control,”she tweeted.

 

 

 

“I apologize to all that showed up,you know that I would never want to disappoint you”

THE BATTLE WITHIN US.—- (6 Minutes Read)

On the 12th of October 2017,I as at Ikeja Area Cooperative Society Office,Old Secretariat to submit a report concerning the present realities my cooperative society has been battling with for quite sometimes now.

 

Though, I didn’t meet my supervisor and the Area Officer, I dropped the report in their Office.As I was about leaving, there was an heavy downpour which kept me waiting so as to avoid being drenched.

 

At a point,the rain subsided and I immediately took my leave.I boarded a tricycle in front of Old Secretariat to Ikeja Under Bridge Bus Stop but by the time I alighted,the tempo of the rain has really increased and all I could do is to wait with other people under the bridge as the bridge offers a temporary safe-haven from the rain with others.

 

It was at this point that I that I was deciding about my next move of getting a bus going to Ogba that I checked my wallet.I realized that the minimum denomination I have is #500 and the transport fare to Ogba is just #100,the driver or the bus conductor might not have change and this an issue that trigger impasse between passengers and conductors in Lagos.

 

THE BATTLE WITHIN

 

It was at the point of looking for a solution to get #100 that something crept into my mind that the only thing I can do for now to salvage the situation on ground is to ‘break the #500 to smaller denomination’ by buying something from vendors plying their trade in the vicinity of where I took shade from the rain but when I looked around at all the available commodities, the two items available are:

  • A newspaper vendor
  • Soft-drinks or carbonated drink vendor.

 

My affinity and attraction to patronise the soft-drink vendor outweighs that of the newspaper vendor.The soft drinks were observed to be chilled despite the extremely cold weather.

 

Then, the struggle between my need and my want started, and it was what triggered the title of this post tagged:

“THE BATTLE WITHIN US”

 

It became a battle because I was in quandary of what I prefer at that moment eventhough I have been struggling to stay off consuming sugar especially sugar from Carbonated drinks.

 

And I was just like:

 

“Do I need it or not”

 

In my clime and in almost all African Society, many of us believed that challenges every challenges we faced is spiritual.This orientation makes every issue and challenges in my part of the world to be construed as spiritual and solutions proffered are always seen from the spiritual angle.

 

 

Meanwhile, if we subject this orientation to deep analysis, one could infer that this form of orientation is wrong and it is short of expectation.

 

It is not all the battles we faced and fought that are spiritual and many of the battles we faced can be said to have their root and routes from another source that differs from the spiritual.

 

 

Personally, one of the battles I fought in 2017 is giving all it takes to reduce or totally stay away from consumption of Soft drinks or carbonated drinks.This decision was taken when I observed that my affinity for it is high and my desire to gulp a bottle on a daily basis is quite high and if it remains unchecked, I realized that it might end up triggering health related issue that might be terminal and life threatning.

 

I have made my decision and I have been able to stick to it to a large extent but once in a while I always struggle to hold to my decision by remaining steadfast in refraining from its consumption.

 

Struggling to stay away from sugar consumption obtainable carbonated drinks now become a battle that it needs extra efforts in deciding to hold on to my decision or not.

 

The questions are:

  • Is this a battle or not?
  • Is this spiritual or not?

 

The answers to these questios are easy and simple but making to be practical are not as easy as we think.

 

The battle of making decision is as real as any spiritual battle we encounter.

 

In the course of our existence on earth, we always encounter many struggles that has to do with ability to make decision between what is good for us and what is bad for us.

 

“There is no interphase between what is good and what is bad.Both are two extremes.Both are two parrallel lines that can never meet.Both are two extremes that have diverse extreme repercussions.”

 

No doubt it, the affinity to do good is weak and our attraction to what is good is always weak while we are easily lured and attracted to what is bad.

 

It was at this point of deciding to either toil on the path of good or bad that the battles within us become fierce.We are always being pull towards two extremes–the extreme of good and the extreme of evil.

 

Knowing what is good and beneficial for us at any moment is good but our ability to carry it out becomes beneficial  to us and the larger society. It is at the point of carrying it out that the struggle and the battle within us is triggerred and it becomes so real that some of us loose out in the battle.

 

Life is a battle ground,the battle to give in to evil or good is as real as life itself.It is the outcome of whatever the step taken by us that defines the essence and purpose of our existence on earth.

 

No one claim to be experience without passing through a stage of life whereby decisions to know what to do at a particular time is easy.If decision to know what to do at a particular time is easy for you, yhen you have never learnt anything and it can be concluded that you are not experienced and you are far away from having a grip on the lessons of life.

 

Lessons and experiences of life becomes obtainable by anyone who fought battles within at one point or the other.

 

The battle within us are some of the decisions we made on a daily basis that is quite unknown to others.They are forces that are deeply inherent at the epicentre of our mind and no one can claim to understand the nature of the one being faced by another person.The battles within us are personal realities and struggles that many of us cannot even explain it to another person.They are the secrets that many of us keep dearly at the bossom of our heart.

 

In conclusion, we define the purpose of our life by the decisions made by us.These decisions always surface in the form of struggles that either pull us back or push us forward.Those who are strong enough to win the battle within are those who emerges as champions and celebrities around us.

 

Though, being a champion  and a celebrity is never tantamount to exhibition and display of mundane things but it is all about becoming matured to the point whereby battles within us is won and the victory become a source of  personal benefit to us and the larger society benefit immensely from it.

‘I WANT JOSHUA TO FIGHT TYSON FURY.’ —-(3 Minutes Read).

Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on Sunday he wants to see his fighter take on controversial former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in all-British showdown next year.

 

Joshua, 28 succesfully defended IBF and WBA Heavyweight titles against Carlos Takam in Cardiff on Saturday and either WBO Champion Joseph Parker or WBC Champion Deontay Wilder appear the most likely next opponents.

 

However,Hearn has not ruled out the prospect of a headline-grabbing bout with          Fury,who is still waiting from a final ruling from UK anti-doping on a suspended drugs ban after the hearing was adjourned in July.

“I think the Wilder fight is potentially one of the biggest in the World boxing and I think that fight is realistically going to happen in the summer of 2018” he told BBC Radio.

 

“But Tyson Fury is a guy who we’d love to see come into the sport.Whether that’ll happen or not is another issue”.

 

“The problem for him is to overcome the governing body and UK anti-doping”.

 

“I think he will come back.I think at some point he will wake up one morning  and think”.

 

“I’ve got to get myself together here and go challenge in these big fights”.

 

“If he does with me or two fights, then I’d love to see the Anthony Joshua fight and I’d like to see it in 2018”.

TYSON FURY

 

Fury,whose licence was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control(BBofC) last October has not fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko to win IBF,WBA and WBO titles in November 2015.

 

Earlier this month,the 29-year-old Fury said he would not reapply to the BBofC for the right to fight again,further reducing the chances of a return.

CONVERSATION WITH MY DAUGHTER 4.–(5 Minutes Read)

The past episodes of a series tagged:“CONVERSATION WITH MY DAUGHTER” had experienced huge acceptance and it has been appreciated from many of our avid readers, followers and viewers.This is just a simple idea that was conceived practically at a point and it is believed it will be and addition to families, relationships and parenting which seems to be an arduous task for some people.

 

Episode 1,2 and 3 have been published and now, here comes the Episode 4.

 

Welcome to the reality of Episode 4.

 

Recently,when ‘my beloved’-my wife was in a coversation with my daughter towards the close of the day.After we have observed prayer before going to bed,my beloved jsut called the attention of my daughter to something that when it started initially, I felt that it might be unimportant and it might be unnecessary for a little girl of her age.

 

Though,it was a mix feeling for me because I was in doubt if her understanding will be in alignment with such exercise, but later I was proofed wrong.

 

This is how her conversation with her mum goes:

 

After prayer had been offered and altered for the night,

 

“Faith”!….Her mum called her.

 

“Ma”……She responded.

“Let’s read the bible”…her mum replied.

 

“When I read,you will chorus it after me”…her mum continued.

 

“Ok”! Ma”….she answered.

katherineschmidt (2).jpg

 

While this conversation was going on, I was fagged out and I wasn’t totally in support but they had the exercise succesfully with my daughter’s response very encouraging.Her mum opened the book of Psalms on her phone and both were busy reading and responding till they got to the last verse of their chosen chapter in the book of Psalms.

 

It was surprising to me when at a point in time recently, even it has been up to two occasions when my daughter had been the one reminding her mum of the need to read the bible after prayers before going to bed, even up till now.

 

“Mummy”!

 

“Let’s read the bible…she demanded.

 

And her mum will be reading and she always chorus it along with her.

 

It was quite surprisng to me that such a simple trial that was carried out and experimented by her mum has become something that she is in love with without anybody forcing her or coaxing her on the need to .

 

No wonder the bible admonished us to be like the little children because the kingdom of God belong to them.

 

With this practical experience, I learnt a lesson of my life that parenting is all about the kind of exposure our ward are given out to and the best period of their life when they can yield to our instructions and ways easily is at the developmental stage of their existence.

 

It is paramount, pertinent and essential for parents to catch them young and put them in the ways of the Lord before they are wrongly exposed and initiated to the evils in the society.

 

There is a need for every parnt to start sowing the seed of spirituality in their wards at a tender age so that there responses to it will be easy and smooth without any constraints and restrictions.

 

Whatever you fail to teach them as a parent will be doled out to them freely as a form of teaching and culture by the society and our society is filled with wrong teachings and negative anti-social instructions that will pave their ways to perdition and destruction.

 

Parenting is a responsibility that must take care of the physical and spiritual need of a child accompanied with the ability to balance the two without any becoming a source of confusion to our children.

 

The greatest gift God gave to humanity is our Children but it is our responsibility as parents to make them fulfill their purpose on earth through the nature of training and exposure given to them.

 

“Your weaknesses in training and moulding them will end up being transformed into strength in them that will make them become a burden and a souce of regret at the end to parents”.

 

If your children grow up treatin you bad, check yourdelf, you might have beeen weak in training them in seeing reasons why an elderly person must be referenced and respected.

 

They end up becoming whatever you made them to be through your weakness or through your strength.

 

In conclusion:

 

“Your weakness in training and moulding them–(children) when they are young will strengthen them in treating you bad when you are old”.

 

“The beauty of good parenting is deeply inherent in trainings and tutelage that are chanelled towards the development of a complete human being that will be an asset to the society in its entirety but not a burden.”

 

Let’s ensure in our little way and with the help of God train our children in the way of the Lord.

 

“This is how a beautiful and a glorious future for our children can be enhanced in the process of time”.

ALEX IWOBI,KELECHI IHEANACHO HELP NIGERIA RALLY TO STUN ARGENTINA.–(4 Minutes Read).

This post was published by PA Sport.

Alex Iwobi scored twice as Nigeria fought back from two goals down to thump Argentina 4-2 in Tuesday’s friendly in Krasnodar.

 

Jorge Sampaoli’s side were without Lionel Messi for their second of two matches in Russia.

 

The Barcelona playmaker took part in a full game for the 1-0 win over 2018 World Cup hosts at the newly-refurbished Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Saturday before returning to Spain.

 

Argentina, though showed few early signs of missing their talisman as Ever Banega curled in  a free kick before Sergio Aguero made 2-0 after 36minutes.

 

However,Kelechi Iheanacho started the recovery with another well-executed free kick before half-time.

4 (1)

 

Iwobi swept in an equaliser five minutes after the restart and another from defender Brian Idowu,on his debut,swiftly turned the match around.

 

The 21-year-old Arsenal forward netted a fourth with 17minutes left to complete a remarkable comeback and leave Argentina facing more questions on the road towards next summers’finals.

 

Nigeria goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi handled the ball outside the penalty area, and Banega sent the resulting free kick into the bottom corner.

 

Nicolas Otamendi headed wide from a corner before Argentina doubled their lead in the 36th minute when Aguero guided home Cristian Paron’s cross.

 

The Super Eagles,who secured their place at the 2018 World Cup as one of the Confederation of African Football group winners,reduced the deficit just before half-time.

 

Javier Mascherano fouled Iwobi to concede a free-kick just outside the penalty area,which Iheanacho promptly clipped over the wall and into the top-right corner past diving Agustin Marchesin.

 

In stoppage-time,Argentina stopper Marchesin produced a fine reaction save from midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

 

There was a worrying moment at half time as Aguero fell dizzy and fainted.He was taken to hospital as a precaution.

 

Nigeria were level five minutes into the second half.Iheanacho turned provider as he darted into the right side of penalty area and picked out Iwobi with a cut-back towards the penalty spot, with the Arsenal front man sweeping a first time shot in the bottom left corner.

 

Before Argentina could regroup,Nigeria went ahead after 53 minutes.Iheanacho was again the creator,this time laying the ball off at the edge of the area for Idowu,who was born in Russia and plays there for Amkar Perm,to drill a low strike past Marchesin.

 

It got worse for Argentina after 73minutes when Iwobi skipped past Marcherano at the edge of the penalty area before slamming the ball into the net.

 

Ndidi nodded wide before Nigeria Keeper Francis Uzoho saved a header from Dario Benedetto,but there was no dramatic finale.

WHY ARE YOU PANTING?—(7 MINUTES READ).

Just of recent I had an encounter with the ministry of Holy Spirit,precisely last weekend.It was on the 18th of November 2017.

 

As I got back from work in the evening,the first issue or challenge I faced was that there was no elecricity supply and my tap has stopped running.

 

This simply means that there is no water.The water stored in case there is a challenge like this was almost running out and all I could do at the moment is to be bothered thinking about how the weekend will be without water coupled with the fact that there is so many domestic chores that are calling for attention like laundry and general cleaning of the entire house.

 

At a point, when power was restored, I dashed out to put on the pumping machine but to my chagrin,the pumping machine didnt power which trigger a kind of consternation in the process because I was overwhelmed with the thought of the pumping machine being faulty.

 

Later, I thought of the pumping machine being repaired but that will be a long-term solution due to the fact that before other co-tenants will rally around to get technician and contribute money for the repair,it might take a couple of days for such solution to arrive.

 

This disappointment made so many things to run through my mind at a time.And I was like:

 

“What is the way out now”

 

Am I going to be sourcing for where to get water from outside?

 

“What of if I didnt get a place”?

 

hOLY SPIRIT 2

 

Later, I submitted that I will simply get the serve of “mai ruwa” and pay for some buckets of water but something in me kept asking another question that:

 

“What of if I didn’t get mai ruwa?

 

“What am I going to  do”

 

At this juncture,I was bottled up with emotion and anger blaming myself for not putting some palliative measures on ground to avert this type of situation like getting a bigger container that I can use in storing more volume of water that can last me and and my family for a period of three days.

 

I was in quandary of what to do and anger has started consuming the whole fabrics of me and I started reacting to everything and everyone around me.

 

The first person to receive such backlash was my wife.

 

But at a point I heard my inner mind telling me quietly in a low voice, though it was audibly telling me to calm down.

 

Despite this, I kept asking myself how the weekend will be without water or how are we going to manage with insufficient volume of water because power outage is easy to manage but managing water is something that can make someone life unbearable.

 

It is something I dont think someone should envisage or pray for because sourcing for water outside someone’s vicinity is quite arduous and painful.The thought of it is killing and suicidal.

 

This was the experience I have to manage and deal with on Friday evening–18th of November 2017 till the dawn of 19th of November 2017.

 

In the course of being moody and angered,I heard a voice telling me many times to calm down that things will sort itself out without any stress.It was by the second time, that I started being calm down.

 

And by the third time, I heard a silent voice telling me to be careful not to transfer the aggression on my wife.At this point, I realised that it is the Spirit of God cautioning me to be very careful with the situation on ground.

 

By the dawn of 19th of November, when I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night still thinking about an easy way out from the present predicament being faced by me.It was at this point I took a practical step to just uttered a point of prayer silently within me in this manner:

 

“Holy Spirit!!!”

 

“What can I do now?”

 

Then I heard a voice telling me to calm down.

 

It was at this point i was able to hold my peace.

 

HOLY SPIRIT 3

 

Suddenly, around 6am,in the twilight of 19th of November 2017, I just heard noise of water splashing on the floor which simply signalled that the overhead storage tank is filled to the brim.

 

It was at this point that I realised that it was not our pumping machine that is faulty but it was the designated pre-paid meter for pumping machine that has run out.

 

Then, as a family we were able to attend for all the necessities that is on ground in the course of the weekend.

 

This encounter and experience offer me an opportunity to learn some practical gift that every christian is endued with in the spiritual.

THE HOLY SPIRIT AS A PERSON

 

It was recorded in the scripture that the Holy Spirit is a person with a pronoun “HE” by JESUS CHRIST.

It reads:

 

“These things I have spoken to you;while abiding with you.”But the Helper,the Holy Spirit,whom the Father will send in My name,HE will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you”.

 

Many Christians are oblivious of the fact that Just as we are in relationship with God-the father and Jesus Christ,the son,so also is our relationship with the Holy Spirit ought to be by seeing the Holy Spirit as a person in like image as any one of us.

 

With this,it is pertinent for any good christian to relate with the Holy Spirit as a person by offering prayers to Him as a person just the way we pray to God but the form by which our prayers should be offered to the Holy Spirit should be in the form of questions asking Him salient questions about issues that are not clear to us in every facet of our existence.

 

The Holy Spirit is a member of trinity that offers answers to prayers that have to do with questioning,leading and searching of deep things in the physical and in the spiritual.

 

It is a pity that many Christians are oblivious of this salient truth and they have not been doing anything to maximize this opportunity given to us by God which was announced to us at the point when Jesus Christ was returning back to heaven.

 

Another important virtue I learnt is:

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR COMFORTER.

While the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ was about coming to an end,Jesus Christ handed his disciples over to the Holy Spirit asking them to wait for the enduement of the Holy Spirit before they start their ministry which came to pass on the day of pentecost.—Acts of the Apostle 2.

 

In the book of John 14 verse 26:

 

It was chronicled that:

 

“But the comforter,which is the Holy Ghost,whom the Father will send in my name,he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have said to you”-KJV.

 

With this,it was explicitly written that the Holy Spirit is our comforter while other biblical verson recorded that the Holy Spirit  is our helper.So the “comfort and the help seeking” ministry in divinity is inherent in the Holy Spirit.

 

In the light of this, whenever our supplication and petition falls within the confines of seeking comfort and help,it is always being handled by the person of the Holy Spirit.

 

Many Christians are unaware of this application because they think that our relationship with the Holy Spirit is all about speaking in strange tongue and languages as it happenned on pentecost day.

 

This is quite wrong and it places a limitation on our relationship with the personality of the Holy Spirit.

 

Among other ministry, the ministry of the Holy Spirit relects in this areas:

  • Provision of comfort and ease.
  • Teaching
  • Leading
  • Remembrance
  • Help.
  • Empowement and enduement.

 

In addition,it is important to know that just as we relate with God and Jesus Christ in Prayers and worship, the Holy Spirit desire and deserve thesame level of relationship.This is something that is amiss largely in christiandom presently.If we can reference the first two members of divinity or trinity, why do we leave the third member without according to Him thesame reference and recognition.

 

No matter what you are passing through now,no matter how miry and dirty life might be,I want you to rely and rest on the comfort and help of the Holy Spirit.He is ready to bring out a coin from the mouth of the fish in order to meet your needs.

 

Before this can come to reality,you must recognise, reference and relate with the Holy Spirit so that His ministry will reflect and be visible in your life.

 

In conclusion,I will ask us one question.

 

It reads:

 

“Why are you panting or panicking when you have THE HOLY SPIRIT.”

 

 

NB:“The word “mai ruwa” is used in describing anyone who uses a cart-pusher to sell water in kegs usually 20 Litres Keg.It is an HAUSA LANGUAGE.

I WILL SIGN WHEN THE CONTENT IS SATISFACTORY—Yemi Osinbajo.—(3 MINUTES READ).

Against the backdrop of rumour engulfing the entire media which was traced to a recent publication by a particular media house submitting that Lai Mohammed rendered a statement that signing of the 2017 is not yet sure:

 

 

 

“We dont know who will sign 2017 budget”—Lai Mohammed.

 

 

LAI MOHAMMED.jpg
 

MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND CULTURE—ALHAJI LAI MOHAMMED.

 

 

The spokesperson to the acting President,Laolu Akande has released a statement in the media to counter the earlier report stressing that his principal would sign the budget into law in due course once the content therein is satisfactory.

 

 

 

“Just so we are clear:when the time comes, everything is set, and he is satisfied,Ag.President Yemi Osinbajo will assent to 2017 Budget”.

 

 

 

With this Nigerians can now breathe a sigh of relief about the state of affairs of the nation concerning the submission and passage of 2017 Budget into law by the acting President Yemi Osinbajo in the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari who embarked on medical check up abroad.

 

 

 

The delay in the passage of the budget to  the presidency was due to the fact  the budget was reviewed last week with the addition of 143 Billion Naira increment  by the National Assembly last week to what was sent by President Muhammadu Buhari.

GETTING ALONG WITH GOD.–(3 Minutes Read).

This publication was originally published on facebook on the 8th of November 2016 and reading it now made me believed that it will serve a purpose of being a source of motivation and inspiration for all my viewers,readers and followers.

It goes thus:

 

Getting along well in life with all its accompanied vagaries,distractions and disappointment without getting along well with God will author confusion and frustration with its end in vanity.

 

The strength required for exploit and the vigour needed for being above all can only be sourced from the author of life who called everything into existential without any iota of stress but by the spoken word.

 

Detaching yourself from the resourcefulness emebedded in using your tongue to confess and profess the right word with you standing aloof from the source of every creation will only end in doom and perdition.

 

Nothing in life should stand in the gap between you and your God no matter how relevant and important it might be.—Romans 8 verse 28-35.

 

Unknowingly your reference for men standing as an authority for you might end up standing against you from being permanently attached to God.

 

When you reference men more than what is expected, God’s wrath is never far away from you.

 

Men that refer men as God in words and in deeds are doing what is unacceptable by any standard because God is not in anyway at thesame level with any of His creation.

 

 

god 2.jpg

 

No human is worthy enough to be referenced as God.

 

Remember, God will never share His Glory with anyone.

TECHNOLOGY IS DESTROYING A CHILDREN’S IMAGINATION.—(3 Minutes Read).

In a recent report published on http://www.femalefirst.co.uk on the 23rd of November 2017.

 

According to a new survey, technology is reportedly killing a children’s imagination following the rapid decrease of imaginary friends.

 

tECHNOLOGY 1

 

A new survey conducted by Snarzaroo has learnt just 17percent of children have imaginary friends,which is a rapid decline from the 2001 record that found almost half of British kids had made up invisible playmate.

 

And the study believes devices,such as iPads and other electronic goods are the culprit and are damaging a child’s creativity.

 

tECHNOLOGY 2

 

Speaking about research, Dr Amanda Gunner-who is the founder and CEO of Fundamentally children- said:

 

“Imaginative play is hugely beneficial for childre-being able to transport themselves into -make believe worlds with imaginary characters can help them make sense of their world or provide an escape from it(something that supports good mental health in later life).

 

“Suspending reality give children the opportunity to think outside of the box and be as creative as they like,with none of the restrictions that are placed on real life activity”.

 

And Gummer has urged parents to encourage “imaginative play” or artistic outlets.

 

She continued:

 

“Parents can help children engage in imaginative play by providing them with a balanced play diet and managing the amount of time children spend as passive receivers of digital contents”.

“Tools such as face paints, building blocks,dressing up clothes and play dough can help to stimulate this”.

 

“Free, child-led play is the super-food of the play diet and can balance the less imaginative play activities that are sometimes found in high toys and screen play”.

WHAT ARE THE NECESSITIES FOR ACHIEVING SET GOALS?.—(5 Minutes Read).

This idea occupied my line of thought just now which could be submitted as an outcome of my personal appraisal about my plans concerning year 2017 when it started about twelve months ago.

 

It came like a sort of questioning asking myself about how far I have gone achieving some laid down aims and objectives designed for the achievement of my goals from the beginning of 2017 till this present moment.

 

While I was able to achieve some, others remained untouched till this present moment due to certain circumstances that are somehow hard beyond my ability and capacity to comprehend what could have happened in preventing such aim and objectives from becoming handy and a object of reality.

 

One of the goals I planned achieving in the course of 2017 which I will mention is getting my blogsphere upgraded to premium so that it can become monetised but looking back at the realities of this year, I observed that I was unable to get it done.

 

The year started specially with multifarious practical realities, some were expected while others are unexpected.Just as the saying goes:

 

“Always expect the unexpected”

 

There are two practical realities that accompany 2017 and these realities are:

 

  • The expected
  • The unexpected.

 

I will refrain to a large extent from going deep into the two aforementioned realities so that there will not be a major digression from the subject matter but one thing that is cocksure is that :

 

goal 2

 

“Why is it that dreams and plans are made continually and continuosly on a daily basis by every one living on earthly pedestal but only few of the visions made becomes a subject and an object of reality?”

 

This is a one million dollar question that is as old as the world itself.It is a question that is being asked by every human being and it will continue to be a question that will be asked till the end of age but few people who understand the secrets of earthly mysteries will be empowered to give reasonable practical answers to this question.

 

The possibilities of the realities of your dreams,plans and aspirations end up being  fulfilled when you are able to meet up with the set goals.Goals are the catalysts that speed up the rate and speed at which our laid down dreams,plans and aspirations can be achieved expressly.

 

In contrast,many people are fond of making and creating goals towards achieving a set target but the achievements are always difficult and impossible,and the reasons for such impossibility and difficulty needs to be highlighted one after the other.

 

These are viz:

 

  • Inconsitency in meeting up with set goals.
  • Lack of focus.
  • Distraction.
  • Dishonesty.
  • Lack of interest.
  • Lack of discipline and self-control.
  • Laziness and floppiness.
  • Lack of determination and commitment.
  • Lack of persevearance and persistency
  • Lack of will-power
  • Lack of vision
  • Lack of ability to live a selfless and sacrificial lifestyle.
  • Wastefulness of resources
  • Procrastination

 

These are some of the thorns that are potent enough to choke any form of goals laid down in the course of your bid to achieve the beauty of your dreams,plans and aspiration at any point in time.

 

gOALS 3

 

These are sets of factors that cluster as a colony,a canopy and a covering to blur your desire and drive to achieve a set goals in the course of the year.

 

Every year becomes beautiful when your goals become a reality but bthe reality of the goals can never see the light of the day once some of these factors have their assemblage in your approach to achieve what is needed to make your dreams,plans and aspiration a confirmed practical reality.

 

Your desire and drive to achieve your set goals and targets are akin to a journey and a sojourn.For any journey to be smooth and succesful, such must be free from obstacles and clogs that constitute a wall of resistance to the success of such journey.

 

In conclusion, we are all at the tail end of the year whereby it is necessary for personal appraisal and stock-taking must be made in order to visualise how far you have gone in achieving you set goals and target.

 

This must be carried out by anyone who desire proper monitoring of personal progress and achievement so that proper preparation can be made in correcting the lapses of 2017 for 2018 to be more succesful and glorious in all ramifications.

 

“HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE”.

HOW CAN I LEAVE BEHIND EVERGREEN LEGACIES?—(6 Minutes Read).

I was busy with laundry on the 10th of December 2017 when this idea popped into my mind in the form of question.It was at this point that I decided that it will be important and imperative for my followers,readers and viewers to have a bite of this delicious piece of cake that I believed it will go in a long way to serve as an eye-openner to me as the author and every other person who desire deep inspiration and motivation that is neccesity in announcing the essence of human existence on earthly pedestal.

 

 

In the course of my elementary schooling, I could vividly remember that I was groomed and schooled being tutored about some people who left indellible marks in the test of time and they were always referred to as heroes and heroine due to the impact and impart made by them that ended up transforming the existence of humanity accompanied by the positive effects of their contributions that provided a solution to multifarious challenges that is bedevilling and plaguing human existence at one point or the other.

 

 

While in retrospect of what was learnt then,I decided to present this topical write up intended to delve into some of the values and virtues that made my elementary school days to be filled with dreams,vision and passion of becoming someone that will be a source of positive reference to others in the form of mentor and mentee relationship.

 

 

Some of the values and virtues that made these people to become what they are in the annals of human history are:

  • Vision.

  • Passion.

  • Dedication and commitment.

  • Being Hardworking.

  • Honesty.

  • Being bold and daring.

  • Being sacrificial and selfless.

  • Ability to recognise the needful and other neccessities.

  • Ability to engage timely intervention to solve problems and challenges.

  • Smartness and the possession of will power.

  • Strength to go extra mile in order to contribute positively.

  • Agility and composure.

 

 

lEGACIES 2 (1)

 

 

These are some of the factors that enhance and empower these people to make their living meaningful and contributory in the course of their existence.

 

 

It is even chronicled in the history of these great men and women that some of them put their lifes on the line and dared extreme danger and inhumanity meted against them by their oppressor in other for people looking up to them with the coming generation to be enjoy the beauty and the fulfillment of liberty while existing on earth.

 

Some of these people were labelled as an outlaw and an outcast loosing their possession for a struggle that is aimed at liberating the oppressed and the downtrodden in the society.

 

 

In the course of the struggle, some were maimed,killed and incancerated just because they are fighting for what is right and what they believed in.

 

 

These are people that willingly sacrifice their comfort and convenience for the generation yet unborn to enjoy freedom and liberation from oppression and every form of inhumanity.

 

 

The period of colonisation and imperialism in the continent of Africa were filled with the stories of these great men and women who sacrificed their lifes in other for slavery to be abolished.It was chronicled that the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade stripped off the continent of Africa of valuables in terms of natural and human resources,a kind of endeavour that was construed and it prosper for so long that many able bodied men and women were transported on the high sea to faciliate the triangular slave trade from Africa to Europe and finally to the land of America.

 

 

These kind of inhumanity was stopped and aborted with the help of some people who fought with every pinch of their blood and every ounce of their flesh to make sure that all the countries in Africa were liberated and independence was given at the end of the day.

 

No one can forget what Nelson Mandela,Martin Luther King Jr,Julius Nyerere of Tanzania,Obafemi Awolowo,Nnamdi Azikwe and others sacrificed to ,ake sure that the continent of Africa experienced self-governance.

 

 

These sets of people are observed to be dreamers and visioners passionate about sacrificing whatever is necessary for what they believed in to see the light of the day.

 

 

The success of their struggle was not given on a platter of gold and it was not a piece of cake given in a party but it is a selfless sacrifice that made so many people to loose their life in the course of the struggle for the liberation and emancipation of humanity platformed on the respect and protection of human right.

 

 

The contributions of these great minds placed a kind of weighty responsibility on all of us that the legacies left behind must be protected and preserved by developing their contributions to a concept that will serve as a tool of information,mentorship and tutorship for the world to have the rising of other giants and trailblazers that will be at the forefront of championing courses of humanity that will trigger the transformation of the entire world into a place where the dreams, visions and aspirations of everyone to come into reality.

 

 

It is possible for all of us to leave behind evergreen legacies in the course of our existence if we are willing of contributing our quota in a positive and a little way to see to the development and transformation of the entire world by being sensitive and conscious of what need to be done to be a part of the progress and development that is eluding the entire world.

 

 

In conclusion,legacies are made and they become evergreen when we make sure that we strife in contributing positively to human existence while we are living.The impact of our living and the impart of our existence must be felt by people around us no matter how insignificant the contribution might be.Those who ended up leaving a legacy behind don’t sit down doing nothing in contributing in amelioriating and salvaging human suffering as it is being witnessed across the length and breadth of the entire world.

 

 

It is on this concept and context that great leaders are made with their contributions being loud even when they have drawn the curtain.

 

 

“Servanthood makes great leaders and contributions makes evergreen legacies”.

CONVERSATION WITH MY DAUGHTER 5.—(6 Minutes Read).

The responses and comments that accompanied the previous episode were encouraging and overwhelming, and this spur my intention to write more on the concept of parenting with practical real life issues,experiences and encounters designed to serve as an addition to give the role and responsibility of parenting a face lift that will be a source of inspiration to the entire society at large.

 

Parenting 4

 

I appreciate my followers,my readers and all viewers who took their time to read through and comment on the Episode 1,2,3 and 4.I have decided to spend more of my time and writing for articles that will serve as a motivation and inspiration that will be a source of eye-opener to every parent and every children who desire to understand the purpose of their existence while existing on the surface of earth.

 

The desire of parents anywhere in the world is for their wards to become better in the course of their existence on earth.This simply put a very tasking and arduous responsibility on anyone who desire the beauty of parenting and this responsibility is a task that must be carried out and fulfilled.


(Page 1)

Parenting is one of the major responsibilities that has rewards  transcending the physical to the spiritual accompanied with impact and impart that have eternal renumeration potent and efficient enough to attract transgenerational blessings if such responsibilities and roles are maintained and enforced to become a heirloom and a legacy across family line.

Parenting (1)

 

Good parenting is a kind of parenting that is exhibited by good tutelage designed to add values purposed to bring out the best in our children by allowing them to understand the purpose of their existence so that they will be able to emerge more as a blessing to their generation than emerging as a burden or a source of concern to the entire society.

 


(Page 2)

 

Not quite long,around two weeks ago,I was baffled and overwhelmed with a sense of fulfilment when I observed a particular scenario that has to do with my little daughter.

 

It started on a Sunday, when at the end of Sunday service, that I and my beloved–my wife went to pick our daughter from the Childrens’ class.It was then we are aware that she has threw up by vomitting,a situation that was quite strange and unexpected but we managed the situation until we got home with her body temperature too high to bear but her mum took her to the hospital immediately we got home.

 

After a visit to the doctor for medical checkup and comprehensive treatment, she was later diagonised of malaria and she came back home with drugs administered to her by the doctor with adequate and proper prescription about the usage.

Parenting 5.jpg

 

Immediately, we started applying the prescribed drugs  coupled with the combination of anointing oil.

 

As a Christian and a member of Living Faith Church Worldwide, the application of anointing oil which is biblical and scriptural is part of our doctrine and belief that members of the church do not play or joke with.


(Page 3)

 

By the morning of the next day which happenned to be Monday Morning,she was a little bit balanced,better and recuperating gradually.

 

While I was in the bath preparing in the morning to go to work, I was amazed with her request from me which goes thus in form of a conversation:

Ko! Ko!! Ko!!!…..she knocked.

Daddy!!!……She called.

Faith!!!

What do you want?….I asked her.

Daddy!!!…..She called again.

I need the anointing Oil…..She asked.

For what?Why do you need it…I probed further.

To put it on my head…..She responded.

At this point I felt elevated with her demands because I was oblivious of the fact that she is grasping everything that is being done around her.


(Page 4)

 

Among others, one of the major purpose of parenting is training that influences our wards to become better and matured in life.Training can b e in any form, be it physical,financial,spiritual,economical and emotional.Training must be total in content and context with the inherent ability to go a long way in moulding and shaping the destiny of the Children GOD gave to us in the course of our existence on earth.

 

As a parent, God empowered us to be a role model to all the Children HE gave to us.This enforces a form of responsibility on us that is expressed in influence and our apt responsiveness in meeting their needs  and standing in gap for them in order  for them to become confident and balanced in life.

 

Parenting 3

Any form of approach to parenting that is devoid of enforcing positive influence on our children simply connotes the exhibition of irresponsibility and irresponsiveness.

 

Since our children are made to be a mirror image and a reflection of their parents, any acts of wrong doing that is being exhibited by them can be counted as a result of laxity and levity displayed in the course of grooming our children.

 

It is what our children exhibit that will end up being a reality of the society in its entirety.

 

It is pertinent to admonish every parent to do everything within their means to mould the leaders of tommorrow to emerge as giants that will become trailblazers while existing on earth.

 

The purpose of parenting becomes justified and fulfilling when the desired responsibilities are made available and provided in raising a complete and a balanced children the entire society will be proud of.

WHY ARE WE DRIFTING BACK TO THE WOES OF THE PAST?—(5 Minutes Read).

Without mincing words,Nigeria as a nation is gradually drifting back to the woes of the past that portrays nothing but a blur and a bleak future with the recent advent of fuel scarcity being gradually witnessed across the Lagos Metropolis.

 

Initially, it seems unbelievable and unexpected when the news or rumour started filtering around that fuel is gradually becoming scarce but the reality dawned when it was observed in my vicinity and neighbourhood  queque of vehicles waiting to be attended to fuel attendants in the fuel filling stations.

This kind of experience has been the order of the day in some years ago when the festive period beckons but it became abated at some point and we all think that the days of gloom is over until recently when this unpalatable reality pop up and splashed on our face like a piece of shit.

 

 

fuel scarcity 2.jpg

The kind of break experienced across the length and breadth of the entire Nigerian nation from fuel scarcity was somehow believed to be as an outcome of the magic wand pulled by the preset administration of All Progressive Congress when the issue of fuel subsidy was partially scrapped leading to the hike of fuel skyrocketting to high heaven.

 

Eventhough, the Nigerian masses accepted their fate after so many unabated hullabaloo about the removal of fuel subsidy that made the pump prices of fuel to soar to high heaven at 145naira per litres for petrol and 180naira per litres for diesel,this removal have been able to offer temporary succour in preventing the scarcity of this product.

The realities on ground about fuel stations being jampacked with vehicles with varied volumes of Jerry-can at display by consumers really shows that the present administration is gradually loosing the magic wand or the magic wand that made the perpectual fuel scarcity been experienced around festive period is gradually becoming weak and it is about reaching the breaking point.

 

 

FUEL SCARCITY 3.jpg

The issue of constant supply of fuel has been a source and a topic of debate in the time past with all the political parties and their aspirants been seen to have maximized this situation as a source of electoral campaign and manifestos in the time past but one could see that it is just a lip- sevice that might have been orchestrated as a political gimmick and sophistry to deceive innocent Nigeria in order for them to get their vote during electioneering.

 

 

Past and Present administrations have made constant,continuous and unending promises concerning the revamping and maintenance of our moribund refineries in order for the refineries to be able to meet up maximally with the local consumption supply of fuel but this has been a dream and a drive that has not been able to materialised into fruition and it can be submitted to have been a source of siphoning public fund.

 

It is of neccessity to point out at this point that there is a need for Nigeria government to start thinking about the construction and commissioning of new set of state of the art refineries if the old ones can not be revamped and maintained.

 

A situation whereby the present Minister of State submitted at a point in time that the commencement of full production at the Dangote Private Refinery in Lagos will boost local production capacity is an indication that the Nigeria Government is irresponsible in the discharge of their statutory function of governance.

 

At this point in the histrory of our national existence,the only way out of this impasse is for Nigeria government to commence the construction of new sets of refineries plant or the should see to the removal of policy bottleneck that is preventing public private partnership(PPP) from taking over the business of crude oil refinery in Nigeria.

It is the full introduction of cutting edge technology that will see to local refinery of crude oil maximized to meet local demand and consumption that Nigeria as a country will be delivered from the woes of the past.

 

 

Any deviation from this, is an indication to the fact that the realities of long queque might be a permanent reality that Nigerians have to manage and cope with for a long period of time.

 

 

There is a need for our government to be prompt and decisive in their approach to nib the bud so that this ugly trend that is unexpected and uncalled for in the 21st century from an oil producing state is a national embarrassment and digrace that all dick and harry must find possible solution to.

 

In conclusion,Nigeria will emerge a great nation if local production is maximized in meeting the local consumption demand.

AUSTRALIA CHARGES MAN WITH SELLING MISSILE PARTS TO NORTH KOREA.—(4 MINUTES READ).

In a news published by Reuters on the 17th of December 2017 and culled from http://www.timesofmalta.com.

It was reported that Australian police said on Sunday they had arrested a man accussed of working in the black market to sell missile components and a coal on behalf of North Korea,the first charges ever brought in Australia over the sale of weapon of mass destruction.

The man had been charged with two counts under an act preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction,police said, and with another four under legislation enforcing United Nations and Australian sanctions against North Korea.

 

The Sydney man was identified by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and other media as 59-year old Chan Han Choi who they said had been living in Australia for more than 30years and was of Korean descent.

 

He was arrested in the Sydney suburb of Eastwood on Saturday and was due to face court later on Sunday,police said.He came to the attention of authorities earlier this year, the Australian Federal Police(AFP) said.

 

“This man was a loyal agent of North Korea, who believed he was acting to serve some higher patriotic purpose,”AFP Assistant Commissioner Neil Gaughan told reporters.

 

“This case is like nothing we have ever seen in Australia soil”,he said.

 

Police will allege the man tried to broker the sale of missile components including software for the guidance systems of ballistic missiles as well as trying to sell coal to third parties in Indonesia and Vietnam.

 

Gaughan said the trade could have been worth “tens of millions of dollars” if succesful.

 

Cash-strapped North Korea has come under a new round of stricter United Nations Snctions this year after pressing ahead with its missile and nuclear programmes in defiance of international pressure.

 

Tensions have risen drammatically on the Korean penninsula because of the North;s ballistic missile launches and its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, as well as joint military drills between South Korea Korea and the Unted States that the North describes as preparation for war.

 

Pyongyang claimed that its latest intercontinental ballistic missile launch in November had the range to reach all of the United States.

AUSTRALIA CHARGES MAN WITH SELLING MISSILE PARTS TO NORTH KOREA.

 

 

US Secretary of State,Rex Tillerson urged North Korea on Friday to carry out a “sustained cessation”of its weapons testing to allow talks about its missile and nuclear programmes.

 

However, the North has shown little interest in talks until it has the ability to hit the U.S mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile,which many experts say it has yet to prove.

Gaughan said the man  had been in touch with high-ranking North Korean officials but no missile components ever made it to Australia.

 

He also said there was no indication that officials in Indonesia or Vietnam had been involved in the attempted coal sales.

 

“This is black market 101″Gaughan said.

“We are alleging that the activity occurred offshore, and was purely another attempt for this man to trade goods and services as a way to raise revenue for the government of North Korea”he said.

 

This man faces up to 18 years in jail if convicted.
