I was overwhelmed by the flow of nostalgia that swept through my veins in the course of the weekend.

I didn’t feel the flow while I was committing Lagos-Ibadan expressway but immediately I found myself on Ibadan-Oyo road,I started remembering moments of old that have made me to pass through that axis.

Right from the day of searching for industrial training placement in NNPC-PPMC Sagamu to a point in time whereby I attended burial ceremony in Oyo that I have to stay in Akinmorin and some other moments like that that I plied Oyo-ogbomoso road when I am in dire need to attend to one thing or the other.

I found myself in Oyo town on Saturday in honour of my roommate in Dutch Villae while in LAUTECH to celebrate the 80th birthday of his old man,to my surprise,Oyo town maintain the serenity it has been known for.

Oyo town is a different town that is far different from Lagos and I really envied the lifestyle of people resident in this area.

While listening to some indigenes that came around for the birthday party,to my utmost surprise,some of this young folks are landlords already and their source of income is solely from the stipends they are collecting from teaching job which might not be fetching them up to thirty thousand naira per month.

While many of us that clustered in Lagos with salaries that are far from what is obtainable in Oyo town never know when we will have a land to ourselves not to talk of becoming a landlord.

To be Candid, properties in Lagos is absurd and extremely unreasonable.

In other not to digress too far,my journey availed me the opportunity to see faces that the last time I saw them should be around 2003 and 2004.Even,if not that I saw my roommate in Ilesa in 2009,we would be counting 15years of separation now but to the glory of God,we met again after a decade of separation.

The birthday bash was quite grounded with my stay since Saturday evening till this morning.

I saw my roommate again with his entire family and it was a pleasant time to talk about old issues and introducing his roommate to his family made me to understand practically that old wines tastes better.





Though,he still maintain his physique but on my side I have added weight with me being a beard gang.

I really enjoyed my moment in Akinmorin with the entire Oyewo dynasty.

Thanks to my host and his beautiful wife—Engr.Oyewo Bolarinwa.

Do you think your attitude is good and acceptable?

Stop it before it stop you.
Stop fixing eye-lashes,
Stop wasting time fixing nails,
Stop wasting time on make over.


Time is of essence,
The beauty of your destiny can never be reflected in your outward look.
What this generation and posterity want from you is outside the confines of your outward look.


Take your time to fix your attitude.
You will attract the right attention when your character is good.
Good attitude and characters are needed for your prayers to be answered.


Until you get your attitude right,your efforts to achieve your desire might be a hard nut to crack.


God respect and honour the humble but resist the proud.


Goliath was proud and wicked but God taught him humility by allowing a teenager of 17years called David to destroy him with the whole of the Philistines scattering when Goliath fell off.


Just as people around Goliath suffered defeat,those who live around any body who is proud might suffer with the proud but if we spend our time pointing it out,the life of the wicked and others might be saved.


Right attitude attracts right attention. and right direction.
Right character commands right congregation of the right people.


Your struggle to get along smoothly with the reality of life is hinged on your ability to show how positive your attitude is to people around you.





It is foolishness to have a flat attitude and expect your life to fiat right vibes.


Pause for a while and check what others are talking about you.


Can they all be wrong making negative comments about you?


You think their complaints are wrong but the best you can do is to appraise their complaints based on what the complaints are all about.


You don’t give a damn?


Yes!It is good and cool not to give a damn about whatever they are saying about you but it is only a whore or a prostitute that live a life based on such philosophy.


Great minds appraise themselves periodically in order to become better and even with people around them.


Enough of displaying bad attitude.


Our world needs better attitude from better people for the fate of posterity to be better in the process of time.


Attaining an altitude of relevance and prominence requires having the necessary attitude that will serve as a launching pad to project your through personality to people around you in the process of time.


When you have the right attitude to every issues of life, expected victory becomes a walk over having the potential of building a good relationship that will make people around you to enhance their relationship with you.


Good relationship and the ability to maintain such relationship are keys that must be kept by anyone who desire to have a better effective lifestyle that is devoid of grudges and malice thereby prolonging longevity and sound health.


The question is:


In the course of your existence on earth, will you enhance better relationship through better attitude or will you remain adamant or unconcerned about what people say about you?






Are we prepared for the booming population?

It was on my way out on Friday last week that I observed within the vicinity of where I was that within such a space that there are many women around been blessed with a protuded belly.


Initially,I thought I was being unrealistic and unreasonable about my observation but I was wrong as I kept on seen many pregnant women on my way out.


At that point,it dawn on me that we are blessed in this part of the world with our men and women been fruitful as far as procreation wants it.


I was a little bit frugal and economical with my statistics at the point because I opined that in ten years’time Nigeria population will be around 250 million but my statistics was defeated when I read that we are already 201million.


So,it is expediently necessary that I have to correct myself by being realistic.


If this astronomical increase is unchecked,I think the Nigeria population might hit 500 million in ten years’ time.


Anyway,this form of increase is not a crime but a blessing in disguise only if we understand how we can turn it around for the progress of our dear country.





It means if we optimised and maximised this population boom,we will have no hassle in our human capital resources that has been a source of blessing to many nations of the world.


In another vein, while I was meditating on my observation,I noticed that the population boom we are experiencing might end up being a burden to our national existence when we put into consideration how backward we are as a nation when we are having lesser population.


Apart from Providence and share luck with faith and superstition that makes a content of our creed,anthem and mantra,there is nothing on ground that we have as a plan for the new born babies we are expecting.


Our government have been unable to meet up with the demand of all of us that are around now,how can we expect those that are in the womb to be taken care of?


It is a pity that we are trapped in a geographical location and entity that has no value and premium for life’s and we can see how her citizens are being treated in the country and some that are in diaspora are even having a feel of the despicable level of inhumanity Nigerians are exposed to without any form of solutions to it in the nearest future.


No form of excuse will be acceptable because countries with high population census are trying to do better.


At least,China and India have been able to upgrade themselves as a relevant force in the comity of Nations.


In conclusion,we are blessed until we know the value of our blessings.This is the only way by which we make our blessings count for the overall development of our nation which should start when every individual in the country are given a preference and treated the way others are being treated in other nations of the world.
