Are you respecting or idolizing?

The bible admonished all Christians to respect kings and every earthly leaders since their appointment is known ,referenced and recognized by God.

There appointment is not a coincidence but a providence.

In spite of this, it tantamount to misnomer when they are viewed and treated as a god in any form.

Given them reference is not bad in itself but when it get to a point whereby they can not be subjected to constructive criticism makes them to be liable to mistake that could have a wrong reflection on people they are assigned to lead.

If as a Christian, your way of respecting your spiritual leaders is by keeping mum when they goofed,there is no justifiable reasons to speak against any political leader when they are derailing.

If you believed that it is appropriate not to be concerned about how your Pastor manage offering and tithe in the coffers of the Church by seeing it as a way of giving respect to your Pastor, there is no justifiable reasons for you to wag your tongue when your senators, honourables,governors and other political leaders mismanaged the national treasury.

One of the concept of Leadership that makes it worth while is accountability or transparency.

Once this is out of what any form of leadership stand for, such form of leadership will end up loosing its purpose or its purpose will be subjected to wrong realities that will enhance confusion.

Hypocrisy is a sin.

Hypocrisy is when you frown at your senators and other political leaders misappropriating public funds for personal aggrandisement but you hail your Pastors when they are using your offering the way they like since the money belongs to God.

Whether spiritual or secular,every leader is recognized and referenced by God,and God is looking at them in thesame way and manner expecting them to be accountable and reasonable in the ways and manners they handle the affairs of men.

Be a complete Christian,stop being partial by making a god out of your Pastor.

If Jesus Christ can frown against Sadducees and Pharisees and even accursed them.

It is never out of place or out of point to frown against any  man of God if we notice truthfully that what we are having in our spiritual sanctuaries is being watered down by anyone of them.

Though they are human,they are called upon into Ministry to be blameless.

All these propaganda,whether true or false about men of God having sexual intimacy with women are not supposed to be.

It is a wrongdoing that is against the ways of God and it is against everything that is expected from people that are standing as an ambassador of Christ on earth.

They are dents on the body of Christ.

Hypocrisy is not what Jesus Christ died for.

Self righteousness is not part of what the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is all about.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ targets nothing but the death of the sinful nature that was handed over to us by Adam and Eve.

Happy Easter in Advance.

MLST ARTICLES:THE TINY LITTLE STRING

 
Recently, in the course of my annual periodic prayer and fasting designed to seek the face of my creator. I saw myself leading a queue in the form of a row with some guys standing directly at my back, some are with luggage while others are not.

 

Initially, I was oblivious of the fact that these people were waiting for me to make a simple decision but at a point I gained consciousness that I have people at my back waiting and looking up to me to make decision.
What exactly is this decision?
As the first person on the queue, I realized that there is a small orifice in form of an opening in front of me that needs to be opened for thoroughfare.

 

To my amazement, I observed that as little as this opening is, people at my back were waiting eagerly for it to be opened for their passage to become a reality.

 

I noticed that in -between me and the small opening lies a little string holding the opening that needs to be removed before thoroughfare can be allowed.
I really don’t know where I got a plier, all I noticed was that I used a plier on this little string for easy access.

 

Immediately, I cut it off, others at my back were granted thoroughfare immediately.
To my readers, what is that little tiny string that is holding you down from accessing what God has in stock for you.
Is it sin? Is it self?
The battles humanity is facing can either be through sin and through self.
Until you submit yourself to pruning through the word of God, the blessings of God cannot become a reality in your life.

 

This is the moment for self-appraisal to access our relationship with our maker.

The source of our ailing relationship with God has its root in sin and it’s route in self.

 

It is until when the battle of sin and self are totally won, that the glory of God will emerge in our life.

 

The obstacle standing on our way is not as big as we think, it is very little but many have been held down for long because they didn’t take cognizance of this.
Cutting the little string and allowing others that are queuing at my back in my dream simply connotes selfless leadership.

 

This simply shows to me the dearth of good leadership bedeviling the existence of humanity.

 

From this, it can be concluded that the dearth of good leadership simply has spiritual implications to a large extent.

 

No matter the numbers of time every spiritual person walking on earth today prayed to God, the prayer will be futile until God gave humanity good leaders that are selfless in all ramification.
This should become a burden to all and sundry to think and look for a way where they can be useful on the corridor of leadership.

 

The era of passivity and insensitivity to things pertaining to offering leadership dexterity is over. It is wrong when as a Christian we are active as a leader of one group or the other on Sunday and during the week when we are not in the church, we are insensitive to participating in leading others around us. The burden of offering good leadership should not end in the confines of our places of worship, it should transcend beyond the walls of our places of worship to the outside world because at new birth we have been called upon to be a light and a salt to this world. A city set on the hill cannot be hidden.

 
We are redeemed to influence our world not our Church alone.

It is a product of lack of knowledge when you are a lion in the presence of God and you become a chicken in the outside world.
Leadership is all about being a light and a salt to our world.

When you operate under the influence of this understanding that the essence of any form of leadership should influence the world in its entirety and not sectionalized to the confine of your religious cycle.

 

This will end up enhancing and enlarging the scope of your influence and light that the other area of human existence is wailing and demanding for the beauty of good leadership that will entrenched in the process of time.

 

Leadership is all-encompassing in scope that when it is carried out as it ought to be carried out, it will have a positive effect on the person leading and all the people that are being led.As it is beneficial to all,it should be held at high esteem by everyone who desire the prosperity of all inhabitants of the world.

 

There is no single excuse for the entire world to become better without the inhabitants of the world finding means at which the concept of good leadership should be entrenched.

 

This could be carried out when everyone rises to their responsibility of seen a reason that when responsibilities are carried out perfectly by any one of us, it will end up having a positive impact on the generality of the entire human existence.

 

The concept of leadership as it is can be carried out in a simple way, it is not necessary for anyone to wait for when there would be a bigger platform for it to be carried out.

 

It is essential for it to be done at all time by standing in gap for people around us in terms of looking for ways to meet their needs and desires in our own little way which will end up having a kind of effect that night be simple and subtle of others around us.

 

Leadership is all about solving problems no matter how simple the problem might be.

Once, you stand up for people around you and solve problems that they are enmeshed with, you have offered a kind of leadership concept that will have positive effect on the entirety of the whole world.

 

WHAT MAKES YOU A LEADER?

Being a leader is not about strength and the possession of mental alacrity. It is all about some of this attributes which are:

  • Being responsible.
  • Being responsive.
  • Being a problem solver.
  • Being mindful of others.
  • Being a thinker.
  • Being passionate about course of human endeavor.
  • Being concerned about the plight of others.
  • Being hardworking.
  • Being a blind giver.
  • Being kind and considerate.
  • Being selfless and sacrificial.
  • Being able to look for and identify areas of needs.

 

With  some of these attributes and with all other essential one, someone that possesses some of these attributes and have the readiness to grant it in terms of service to others could be viewed as a leader who has the ability and capacity to give what it takes in leading others successfully accompanied with the ability to raise other leaders that will be able to carry on the concept of good leadership as a legacy in the process of time.

 

While the tiny little string holding the entrance from being open wild was cut by the plier I used in order to allow those at my back to enter,it is of essence to understand that effective leadership becomes a concept that will be entrenched and established by the synergy of the leader and those who are being led.

 

The essence of effective leadership remained a mirage if those that are led are obstinate in their approach to see reasons in the quality of leadership being offered to them at a particular point in time.

 

Some of the basic attributes expected from those that are led are:

  • Cooperation with the leader.
  • Being supportive with the leader.
  • Being reasonable with the leader.
  • Working together as a team.
  • Being participatory in every area of endeavor as it concerned everyone.

 

With some of these attributes being put in place by those that are being led, one could be cocksure that once all these are available, such concept of leadership will end up being successful, thereby making impact as it deems fit in addressing issues that pertains to the dearth of good leadership which has been a bane of development all over the entire world especially in the African Society.

 

HOW CAN EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP CONCEPT SALVAGE THE EXISTENCE OF HUMANITY?

 

The existence of humanity on earthly pedestal has been marked and marred by many challenges that has defy many solutions till this present age and this has been the reason whereby whatever is being in reality in this present age has been constant and continuous with no feasible solution at this present moment.

 

These myriads of challenges can only fizzle out when the entrenchment and establishment of effective leadership that has human face is applied in addressing these challenges at any point in time.

This becomes necessary to dive into the role of effective leadership in addressing challenges the bedeviling the entire human race.

According to Thomas Gordon:

Effective leadership is one key element in the success of a group and virtually anyone can learn to be an effective leader. Leaders are made, not born.

“Being the leader doesn’t make you one, because leaders don’t automatically get the respect and acceptance of their group members; so in order to earn the leadership of their group and have a positive influence on the group members, leaders learn some specific skills and methods.”

 http://www1.agric.gov.ab.ca/$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/agdex1334

 

These are:

 

WHAT ARE THE ROLES OF EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP?

The roles of effective Leaders are:

  • They are honest: This gives them credibility, resulting in the trust and confidence of their people. Credible leaders foster greater pride in the organization, a stronger spirit of cooperation and teamwork, and more feelings of ownership and personal responsibility.
  • They do what they say they will do. They keep their promises and follow through on their commitments.
  • They make sure their actions are consistent with the wishes of the people they lead. They have a clear idea of what others value and what they can do.
  • They believe in the inherent self- worth of others.
  • They admit to their mistakes. They realize that attempting to hide a mistake is damaging and erodes credibility.
  • They create a trusting and open climate.
  • They help others to be successful and to feel empowered.
  • They don’t push too much. They encourage members to do more, but know when it’s too much.
  • They roll up their sleeves. They show the members they aren’t just the figurehead or decision maker. Members respect leaders more when they show the willingness to work alongside them.
  • They avoid phrases that cause resentment, reluctance and resistance. For instance, instead of saying you have to do something, effective leaders request or recommend that members do something.

 

 

Giving Feedback

Whether you recognize it or not, as a leader you are constantly providing feedback to your members. How you provide that feedback will often spell the difference between member success and failure.

Silence – When you give no response to your member’s work you aren’t maintaining the status quo, but are actually encouraging a decrease in both their performance and confidence over the long-term. They don’t know if their actions are appropriate. Silence can create paranoia.

Criticism – When trying to stop unwanted behavior or results you may criticize a member. This often hurts the relationship you have with them. Their confidence decreases, they may start to avoid you and other “good” behaviors of the member are affected. This can overpower all other feedback given.

Advice – When you tell a member what behaviors or results you want and how to you would like them done, you improve the member’s confidence and your relationship with them. Increased performance will be the result.

Positive reinforcement – This takes the advice feedback one step further by identifying how much you would appreciate the member’s assistance in reaching the desired behaviors or results. This kind of feedback will give you the best results by increasing the motivation, confidence and performance of your member.

Advice and positive reinforcement should be the only types of feedback you give to a member. Try relating your feedback to the action, behavior or result you want, not to the personality of the member. Consider your timing. Try to give feedback before the event in the form of advice, or afterwards in the form of positive reinforcement.

Accepting Feedback

Knowing how to accept feedback is another leadership skill that will teach you a lot about your leadership style. Resist the temptation to resist the feedback. Don’t explain, defend or deny. Listen silently to try to understand clearly what the other person is saying. You don’t have to agree with the feedback you get, but be receptive to getting the feedback.

Listening

The ability to listen well is a cornerstone of good leadership. To listen well:

  • Stop talking. Before you speak, remember people are more receptive to your input if they feel you have a clear understanding of their situation.
  • Watch for nonverbal clues. Most of the meaning of our messages is in the vocal and visual components. Sighs and slumped shoulders may mean depression. Animated expressions and gestures usually mean excitement. Ask yourself. “Do the non- verbal clues match the words?”
  • Give visual feedback with non-verbal expressions and gestures (e.g., nodding). These let your speaker know that you are listening and understanding what they have to say.
  • Be patient. Our desire to provide quick fix solutions to the problems of others puts up roadblocks. “You don’t have to finish, I know what you are going to say,” is a sure way of letting the speaker know that you have little time or confidence in their ability to solve their problem.
  • Don’t mentally argue. If you are developing arguments in your mind as the speaker talks you are probably missing much of the message.
  • Use reflective listening skills. Use paraphrasing to let the speaker know what you have heard.
  • Acknowledge their ideas. This doesn’t mean you agree with the speaker, but it does mean that you feel their ideas are worth listening to.
  • Keep alert. Effective listening requires energy and concentration. Avoid distractions.
    “I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.” Woodrow Wilson

 

Delegating Leadership

To decide whether you can delegate tasks to others, ask yourself:

  • What am I doing now that I’d like to see someone else do?
  • Which skills among the members can be used more effectively, by giving them more responsibility?
  • What could I do if I had more free time?

Once you’ve decided to delegate, you need to:

  • know your members, what they have done and what can they do
  • listen to the membership so you pick up information about what they want to do
  • let them know that you are willing to share authority
  • give them a purpose so members know why the task is important
  • give credit where credit is due and show appreciation for their efforts.

 

Handling Group Discussions

The majority of work accomplished at meetings is done through group discussion. This is significant as discussions are a time where everyone has the opportunity to contribute to a group. Group discussion is actually more beneficial to your organization than when one individual is working on a project. The ideas generated within a group often don’t come alive when one person is working alone. Yet, discussion time within a meeting is also the time when frustrations build.

How can you avoid being frustrated yet still have a productive meeting? Identify why the group is having the discussion. There are three reasons for having a discussion: to gather information, to exchange ideas and to solve problems. If you know why you are discussing the issue, it’s easier to participate, keep the discussion on track and get results. Be aware of how the discussion is progressing. Two things can be happening during a discussion: the development of information, ideas or issues, or the evaluation of information, ideas or issues.

Usually, developing and evaluating gets mixed together. This is where you can run into problems like discussions that go around in circles and frustrated participants. It can look like this: one person makes a suggestion, the second person says it’s good, the third person says it’s not good and a debate follows. The suggestion is tossed out and the leader asks for another suggestion. It’s good, it’s not good, it gets tossed out. After this happens a few times the group is tired, everyone stays quiet, time is used up and there are no results.

To avoid this scenario, you need to get the ideas out first or develop the information, ideas or issue. Don’t let people evaluate at this stage or it will discourage participation. After the ideas are out, then evaluate. This progression keeps the group moving forward and avoids having a similar debate for each idea or comment. Keeping development and evaluation separate also helps in avoiding the trap of the first idea or the last idea (the survivor of a half hour of frustrating debates) being the best idea. If you only have one idea, of course it looks like the best idea.

Handling Difficult Conversations

The best intentions of a leader for keeping a meeting within a reasonable time frame can be destroyed if members put obstacles in the way.

An orator is an able speaker who likes to practice his speaking skills and may tend to talk for a long time. The leader must judge how much time is enough for this person and then get his attention by saying something like, “Excuse me, Jack, but we’re running short of time and several other members have some points they would like to make. We’d all appreciate it if you could wind up your comments in the next minute or two. Thank you very much.”

wanderer tends to bring up an entirely unrelated topic. A leader can get the meeting back on track by saying something like, “Linda, I’m sorry to break in like this, but I think that you’re getting away from the subject. Remember we’d like to settle the issue of ____ and we would appreciate it if you could confine your remarks to that subject. Thanks.”

The repeater talks numerous times on the same subject while other members haven’t had a chance to talk. You can give the person a rest and the others a chance to talk by saying something similar to, “Dave, before we hear from you again I would like to know how Debbie and Rick feel about this subject. Thank you.” An alternative could be to go around the table in turn and ask for others’ comments on the subject.

An interrupter tends to interrupt others as they are speaking on a subject. The leader may have to interrupt the interrupter by saying, “Before you say anything more, Jason, please wait until Shirley has finished and you then will have an opportunity to make your point. Thank you.”

Summary

Effective leaders have many common qualities. Making the effort to practice and learn the skills it takes to be an effective leader will enable you to use the style of leadership necessary in any situation you come across.

 

With all these aforementioned detailed roles of effective leadership culled from http://www1.agric.gov.ab.ca/$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/agdex1334

 

 

CONCLUSION:

 

It can be easily deducted that what is necessary for a leader to be effective and what could make those who are led to see reasons in the importance of effectiveness offered by any form of leadership at any point in time has to do with understanding the basis of what is expected from a leader.

In understanding the scope of leadership and possessing  a deep knowledge of what a leader is expected to offer, development and progress become achievable without any stress accompany with the rise of other leaders that will take over the mantle of leadership when there is opportunity.

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.

“The choice is his”

 

Youth league leader Yeukai Sinbanegavi said Mr Mugabe should take a rest as an ‘elder statemen’ while his wife should be expelled from the party “forever”.

He said:

 

“By close of play today we could have a situation where Robert Mugabe goes off into sunset”.

Speaking from a secret location in South Africa, Patrick Zhuwas told Reuters that Mr Mugabe had hardly slept since the military seized power on Wesnesday.

 

He added that Mr Mugabe’s health was “good” but he would not legitimise the “coup”that overthrew him.

 

Mr Mutsvangwa, a former state security chief is thought to be in line to head interim unity government that will focus on stabilising Zimbabwe’s  shattered economy.

 

Mr Mugabe will begin a second round of talks with army commnader Constantino Chiwenga later on sunday.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

(Page 2)

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.

IMMIGRANTS SLAVE TRADE—A TALE OF TWO DESPERADOS. —(6 Minutes Read).

Emotions have been high and overflowing since the reality of slave trade popped up and splashed on our faces across the length and breadth of the entire world with everyone lending voice talking against the extremism and babarism that is quite unacceptable,unexpected and appalling with no excuse that is strong enough to be tendered as the rationle behind the ressurgence of this form of inhumanity.

 

Slave trade in Libya as it is presently is akin in all ramifications and descriptions to the tale of two desperados who are hell bent in making landmark effect in the course of their existence.The two actors or players are extremely desperate in their approach and understanding about the essence and purpose of human existence on earth.

 

The captive decided to run away and dodge abysmal harsh and unfriendly realities obtainable in the geographical space and entity tagged Nigeria or other African countries while the captor is ready to maximize the opportunity of a failed state being experienced in Libya after the strongman of Libya–Ghaddafi was succesfully overthrown,deposed and killed by the NATO invasion in 2011.The aftermath effect of this invasion brought Libya down into a state whereby human right abuse is the order of the day till this present moment.

WHO IS TO BE BLAMED–THE CAPTIVE OR THE CAPTOR?

This is a one million dollar question that needs to be carefully answered and clarified but deep critical analysis of the situation on ground concerning the ressurgence and ressurection of slave trade in Libya shows that nobody should be blamed rather  the society must be forced to swallow the bitter pill of carrying the brunch of the blame of producing leaders that lacked the understanding of the major neccessities that will help in building an eggalitarian society that can promote the essence and purpose of humanity whereby a gradual process of developing a class-less society is the main thing.

 

The blame and the shame of this incongruous and bastard act is on the entire society that made and mould the captive to believe that embarking on a journey to the land of the unknown for greener pasture is the only solution to their economic woes and abject poverty.

 

The blame and the shame of this inhumane act should be placed on the society for producing captors who believe in maximizing the reality of a failed state in Libya to fan the amber of apartheid and build walls of racial discrimination against black skinned in order to fetter the nest of maintaining a class in the society.

 

It is unnecessary and needless discussing Libya now because all around us is the presence of a task master that are good in promoting inhumanity and apartheid that is in existence in many shades and forms.


(Page 1)

Slavery has always been with us in different shades and colours which is as a result of a failed society where man’s inhumanity to man is not regarded as a crime.A society where evil is exalted over goodness,where indolence is not penalised,where merit is trampled upon by mediocrity.A society with foreign tastes and consumptive tendencies that puts vain possessions over human lifes.A society with docile cowards and megalomaniacs.

 

What a shame!!!

“What can we call a governor that failed in paying workers salary over a long period of time without any tangible reason that is humanly acceptable by any standard?”

 

“What name can we give to an employer of labour that ought to release the renumeration of his or her teeming workers but decided to hold it without any reason?”

“What can we say about spouses that are good in hurling eveective,insults and domestic abuse to their partners or probably abusing and maltreating their domestic staffs?”

 

“What can we say about you doing less in performance than others but at the point of rewards, you are always swift and cunny to corner the lion share to your coffers?”

“What can we say about corruption,embezzlement,racketeering, nepotism,favouritism,prostitution and other vices and criminality?”

 

Without any iota of doubt,our world is a place that believes in suppressing and oppressing others in order for more territories to be cornered, carved and conquered.

SLAVE TRADE 1

 

Slave trading becomes part of us as long as we allow injustice and inhumanity to prevail and prosper over giving credibility, respect,reference and credence to the essence of humanity.

 

We should all understand that our society have been able to produce more slaves and more slaves merchants than what is happenning in Libya.Slavery is present all around us and we have been mum and mute about it.The concept of employing house-help and domestic staffs can be referenced as a form of domestic slavery because many of this indigent citizen being used as house-helps are always subjected to inhumaness without anyone raising an eye-lid.

 

We should control our emotions now and therefore think deeply about how far we have contributed our quota in buliding a society that prosper on class mentality conceptualised in pulling and stripping the dignity of others as a source of personal ego booster that is against the concept of building a virile eggelitarian society having room for building a class-less mentality in all the inhabitants of the society that will ensure that the concept behind the equality of all men is promoted and preserved.

 

No doubt about it that slave trading is happenning on Africa soil because the African Societies are so weak in their approach in protecting their people against human right abuse.All the realities of bad governance and leadership on the corridor of power in the continent of Africa are fashioned towards pulling down human right of their citizen.

Many policies are being made today that is anti-masses with its ability to lull and ebbed the economic and purchasing power of the masses thereby creating abject poverty as a tools of keeping the masses down productively which enhances the thought of embarking on a suicide mission and a journey of no-return to the heart of Europe through the desert or through the high sea.

 

In conclusion, the days of woes of African Society continues until leaders all over the continent of Africa fashion ways and policies that will protect and preserve their teeming citizenry from human right abuse triggered by abject penury that has been the outcome of government policies that has no respect for the average man on the street.

CIA TRIED TO KILL FIDEL CASTROL WITH POISON PEN ON DAY OF KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION,JFK FILES REVEAL.— (3 Minutes Read).

According to the report published by Tom Powell of Evening Standard online news.

 

The CIA was working to kill Fidel Castro on the day John F Kennedy was assassinated,newly released files reveal.

 

The latest batch of JFK documents,published online on Thursday contain details of a US plot to kill the Cuban leader with a lethal ballpoint pen.

 

FIDEL CASTRO

 

President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22,1963.On the same day, a CIA officer in Paris gave a  Cuban asset a pen rigged with a syringe.

“The evidence indicates that the meeting was under way at the very moment President Kennedy was shot”the document says.

 

The plot was one of many considered by US defense forces to remove Castro, who was feared by Kennedy as detailed in the files.

“We cannot overemphasize the extent to which responsible Agency officers felt themselves subject to kennedy administration’s severe pressures to do something about Castro and his regime”the report says.

 

The release of more than 13000 records by US National Archives is the fourth release of documents this year.

 

Most of the overall collection comprising about five million pages of records has been released to the public but some documents have been withheld over the years to protect individuals intelligence sources and methods and national security.

 

The latest documents are being released according to a law that President George H.W.Bush signed on October 26,1992.

 

That law required all records related to the assassination being released 25 years, unless the president says doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement,military operations or foreign relations.

 

Last month, on the 25-year deadline,President Donald Trump wrote in a memorandum that he had”no choice” but to agree to requests from some government agencies to continue withholding certain information.

 

Mr.Trump, however, directed agencies to again review each of their redactions during the next 180days.

 

He said agency heads needed to be extremely circumspect in recommending that information still needed to be withheld from the public.

 

Government agencies have until March to tell the National Archives why any part of their records should still be redacted.

 

The records included in this latest public release have not been re-reviewed by the agencies as part of the process.

 

FIDEL CASTRO (2)

 

Conspiracy theorists have long questioned the official conclusion the Mr Kennedy was murdered in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was acting alone.

“The choice is his”

 

Youth league leader Yeukai Sinbanegavi said Mr Mugabe should take a rest as an ‘elder statemen’ while his wife should be expelled from the party “forever”.

“It is unfortunate that the president allowed her to usurp executive authority from him,thereby destroying both party and the government.”

 

Sky NEWS’ Senior Correspondent David Bowden said the situation in Harare is “entering the final plays”.

 

He said:

 

“By close of play today we could have a situation where Robert Mugabe goes off into sunset”.

 

“There’s a lot of conjecture about what is going on the facts are:he’s running out of road”.

“If he doesn’t step down, it is likely that Parliament will vote him out in the next few days’.

 

Mr Mugabe has so far refused to leave office and could face impeachment when the Zimbabwe parliament resumes on Tuesday.

 

Ruling party committee member Obert Mpofu said Grace Mugabe and close associates”have taken advantage of his(Robert Mugabe) frail condition”to loot national resources.

 

On Saturday Mr Mugabe’s nephew insisted his uncle and Grace Mugabe were “ready to die for what is corect’and said the embattled Preisdent had no intention of stepping down.

Speaking from a secret location in South Africa, Patrick Zhuwas told Reuters that Mr Mugabe had hardly slept since the military seized power on Wesnesday.

 

He added that Mr Mugabe’s health was “good” but he would not legitimise the “coup”that overthrew him.

 

Mr Mutsvangwa, a former state security chief is thought to be in line to head interim unity government that will focus on stabilising Zimbabwe’s  shattered economy.

 

Mr Mugabe will begin a second round of talks with army commnader Constantino Chiwenga later on sunday.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

 

The commissioners sworn in and their portfolios are:

  • Prof.Nnamdi Obiaraeri—–Information;

  • Lady Ugochi Nnana-Okoro—Agric.and food security;

  • Gertrude Oduka—Primary and Secondary Education;

  • Dr.Jones Uzoka–Niger Delta Affairs;

  • Uchendu Mark—-Public Utilities;

  • Gerald Okolie—-Rural development;

 

Others are:

  • Dr.Cyril Okafor—–Tourism;

  • Emmanuel Ojinere—Trade and Investment;

  • Chief Lasbery Anyanwu—Transport;

  • Onwueyiagwu Valentine—Youth Development;

  • Eke Chudi—-Ngor Okpala;

  • Aloysius Onwuegbuchulam—Njaba;

  • Paschal Onwukaike—-Nkwerre.


(Page 2)

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.

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”.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.


(Page 2)

 

 

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

BENUE MASSACRE—VAMPIRES ON LOOSE—(5 MINUTES READ).

The quietness of the night elude them,

Their rest became vaporised,

The heaviness of their eyelid disappeared,

They woke up in fear and with trembling,

They ran helter skelter,

In the middle of the night,

Their sleep was truncated with topsy-turvy,

And the cry for help took over,

The beautiful atmosphere of the night became sullen,

Vampires are everywhere,

Killing,murdering and maiming without control,

With their clubs and swords,

They expressed their meaness by butchering innocent souls,

Innocent souls slaughtered like cows,

Innocent souls butchered without control,

And the flow of blood surpassed the flow of blood in an abatoir.

 

 

 

While the fury of the rampaging vampires gushed out,

The blood of the innocent gushed out like water from a cistern,

While the flesh of the innocent were butchered and massacred,

While the bones of the innocent were crushed,

Hell was let loose,

And Benue State became a home of fury,

And blood was on the dancing floor,

Dancing and merrying were aborted,

Laughter and smiling were replaced,

With regrets,angusih and gnashing of teeth,

The dignity of humanity was disrespected,

While human body and physiology were destroyed.

 

 

 

It would have been understandable,

If this show of barbarism and cannibalism occurred during war time,

It could have been better if it happened on the battle field,

It became worrisome how a sovereign state in a sovereign country,

Governed by constitution,rules and regulations,

Suffered a gory incident,

Not from outsiders and strangers,

It was perpetrated by mere herdsmen,

And they succesfully take the life of others.

Without any remorse on their part.

 

 

 

Children were attacked,

Pregnant women lost their lifes,

Men’s throat were slith opened,

Foetus were opened up,

Many eyes were plucked out,

Limbs were broken,

Arms were lost,

Human parts were disembered.

Families were separated.

Widows amd widowers increased.

 

 

 

 

What an indiscriminate act,

What a show of indignity and apartheid,

What an act of inhumanism,

What a show of cannibalism,

What a display of terrorism,

What an exhibition of callousness and coldness.

 

 

 

The authority on ground were caught unaware,

Security apparatus became weak,

No one to render help,

And innocent souls fell into the hands of vampire,

Blood sucking demons were high in their kingdom,

At the sight of sword and gun shots,

The dove of peace left their nest and flew away,

As the crimson of blood occupied available spaces,

Vultures descended and took over the scenes,

And the carcases of lost human body became accessible to all eyes.

 

 

 

 

Where is the missing link?

Why is human souls cheap as water?

Why is our land is being torn apart?

Why is blood on our dance floor?

Why is living in Nigeria is extremely risky?

Why is human existence in Nigeria is a curse?

 

 

 

 

Till now,

No single arrest has been made,

No one has been locked up,

Everybody is folding their arms,

Everybody is using their mouth playing blame games,

And the anguish and agony,

From the affected and the deceased family remained.

 

 

 

 

Till now,

There seems to be no single way out,

A pointer to the fact that,

We should expect another attack in a the course of time,

Since our government are handicapped to toil on the part of reasoning and wisdom,

The vampires will be let loosed very soon,

And the vulture will take over again.

 

 

 

 

Why!

Why!!

Why!!!

 

bENUE MASSACRE (1)
BENUE STATE HERDSMEN MASSACRE—VAMPIRES ON LOOSE!!!

 

 

This is dedicated to all the people of Benue State at this down moment in their history.Even if we agree with our Vice-President that the perpetrator of this dastardly act should be forgiven,we should all remember that history will not forgive those who fan the amber of this show of cannibalism and barbarism.

 

 

 

This is a pointer to the fact that we are blessed in this part of the world with irresponsible and irresponsive government who have no value for human life.

 

 

 

All other states in the federation are planning and beginning to arm their indigenes especially local hunters to the teeth and it is becoming more clear that a nation that ought to be demilitarised is fastly becoming more militarised with arms and ammunition becoming cheap as water available at the disposal of every dick and harry.

 

 

 

No doubt about it,the APC administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari keeps disappointing the Nigeria nation by deviating wildly and making all their electoral promises unachievable.

 

 

 

No part of the country is safe now,every part of the country is having her own security challenges and there has never been no form of workable solution proffered to nib this in the bud.

 

 

 

All concerned Nigerians should rise up to challenge the level of insecurity being experienced in Nigeria presently if only we are passionate about our dreams of having an indivisible geographical entity called Nigeria to remain as one nation.

 

 

 

In conclusion,this is dedicated to the repose of the more than 70 Benue indigenes that were massacred and butchered by Fulani Herdsmen.

 

 

 

May their souls find peace that eluded them while they are alive.

 

 

 

Rest in Peace.

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.

IMMIGRANTS SLAVE TRADE—A TALE OF TWO DESPERADOS. —(6 Minutes Read).

Emotions have been high and overflowing since the reality of slave trade popped up and splashed on our faces across the length and breadth of the entire world with everyone lending voice talking against the extremism and babarism that is quite unacceptable,unexpected and appalling with no excuse that is strong enough to be tendered as the rationle behind the ressurgence of this form of inhumanity.

 

Slave trade in Libya as it is presently is akin in all ramifications and descriptions to the tale of two desperados who are hell bent in making landmark effect in the course of their existence.The two actors or players are extremely desperate in their approach and understanding about the essence and purpose of human existence on earth.

 

The captive decided to run away and dodge abysmal harsh and unfriendly realities obtainable in the geographical space and entity tagged Nigeria or other African countries while the captor is ready to maximize the opportunity of a failed state being experienced in Libya after the strongman of Libya–Ghaddafi was succesfully overthrown,deposed and killed by the NATO invasion in 2011.The aftermath effect of this invasion brought Libya down into a state whereby human right abuse is the order of the day till this present moment.

WHO IS TO BE BLAMED–THE CAPTIVE OR THE CAPTOR?

This is a one million dollar question that needs to be carefully answered and clarified but deep critical analysis of the situation on ground concerning the ressurgence and ressurection of slave trade in Libya shows that nobody should be blamed rather  the society must be forced to swallow the bitter pill of carrying the brunch of the blame of producing leaders that lacked the understanding of the major neccessities that will help in building an eggalitarian society that can promote the essence and purpose of humanity whereby a gradual process of developing a class-less society is the main thing.

 

The blame and the shame of this incongruous and bastard act is on the entire society that made and mould the captive to believe that embarking on a journey to the land of the unknown for greener pasture is the only solution to their economic woes and abject poverty.

 

The blame and the shame of this inhumane act should be placed on the society for producing captors who believe in maximizing the reality of a failed state in Libya to fan the amber of apartheid and build walls of racial discrimination against black skinned in order to fetter the nest of maintaining a class in the society.

 

It is unnecessary and needless discussing Libya now because all around us is the presence of a task master that are good in promoting inhumanity and apartheid that is in existence in many shades and forms.


(Page 1)

Slavery has always been with us in different shades and colours which is as a result of a failed society where man’s inhumanity to man is not regarded as a crime.A society where evil is exalted over goodness,where indolence is not penalised,where merit is trampled upon by mediocrity.A society with foreign tastes and consumptive tendencies that puts vain possessions over human lifes.A society with docile cowards and megalomaniacs.

 

What a shame!!!


(Page 2)

“What can we call a governor that failed in paying workers salary over a long period of time without any tangible reason that is humanly acceptable by any standard?”

 

“What name can we give to an employer of labour that ought to release the renumeration of his or her teeming workers but decided to hold it without any reason?”

“What can we say about spouses that are good in hurling eveective,insults and domestic abuse to their partners or probably abusing and maltreating their domestic staffs?”

 

“What can we say about you doing less in performance than others but at the point of rewards, you are always swift and cunny to corner the lion share to your coffers?”

“What can we say about corruption,embezzlement,racketeering, nepotism,favouritism,prostitution and other vices and criminality?”

 

Without any iota of doubt,our world is a place that believes in suppressing and oppressing others in order for more territories to be cornered, carved and conquered.

SLAVE TRADE 1

 

Slave trading becomes part of us as long as we allow injustice and inhumanity to prevail and prosper over giving credibility, respect,reference and credence to the essence of humanity.

 

We should all understand that our society have been able to produce more slaves and more slaves merchants than what is happenning in Libya.Slavery is present all around us and we have been mum and mute about it.The concept of employing house-help and domestic staffs can be referenced as a form of domestic slavery because many of this indigent citizen being used as house-helps are always subjected to inhumaness without anyone raising an eye-lid.

 

We should control our emotions now and therefore think deeply about how far we have contributed our quota in buliding a society that prosper on class mentality conceptualised in pulling and stripping the dignity of others as a source of personal ego booster that is against the concept of building a virile eggelitarian society having room for building a class-less mentality in all the inhabitants of the society that will ensure that the concept behind the equality of all men is promoted and preserved.

 

No doubt about it that slave trading is happenning on Africa soil because the African Societies are so weak in their approach in protecting their people against human right abuse.All the realities of bad governance and leadership on the corridor of power in the continent of Africa are fashioned towards pulling down human right of their citizen.

 

 

slave trade b3

 

Many policies are being made today that is anti-masses with its ability to lull and ebbed the economic and purchasing power of the masses thereby creating abject poverty as a tools of keeping the masses down productively which enhances the thought of embarking on a suicide mission and a journey of no-return to the heart of Europe through the desert or through the high sea.

 

In conclusion, the days of woes of African Society continues until leaders all over the continent of Africa fashion ways and policies that will protect and preserve their teeming citizenry from human right abuse triggered by abject penury that has been the outcome of government policies that has no respect for the average man on the street.

31 BASIC NECESSITIES FOR A BIGGER,BETTER,BOLDER AND A BRIGHTER 2018(NUGGET 19,20,21) —7MINUTES READ.

As the month of January 2018 keeps rolling gradually with every day passing bye,I believe that so many people would have been able to start seeing and feeling what the new year hold for them.

 

While some people would have started taking steps accompanied with approaches that will birth the delivery of their dreams and passion for the year,others would still be caught up in their slothfulness and sluggishness in going out in full swing to get something doing that will birth the success the year is impregnated with.

 

We have been able to discuss comprehensively varieties of basic nuggets that are necessary to be part of us in our sojourn in 2018 with the release of nugget 1-18 that is designed to be one nugget per day.

 

In continuation of what we started, here comes Nugget 19,20 and 21 for your reading pleasure and for your viewing satisfaction.

 

Join me as we tread on the path of another series of knowledge-based compedium designed to add value to the essence of humanity.

 

It goes thus:

 

NUGGET 19:  JANUARY 19TH 2018.

 

  • NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

In order to make a meaningful and an impartful sojourn in the course of the 2018,one of the major attributes and virtues that will enhance the reality of the fulfillment of a year filled with series of succesful endeavour is the possession and the application of possibility and winning mentality.

 

No doubt about it, as the year ahead is laced with series of golden opportunities and the possibilities,so also is the year is laced with impossibilities.Even, the torrents of impossibilities will be more intense and wild.

 

WINNING
 NUGGET 19—NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

 

It is only those who have a possibility and winning mentality that will end up escaping the torrents and the scourge of impossibilities that will surface in the course of the year.

 

One of the best way through which the possession of a possibility and winning mentality can become part and parcel of your existence is by having self-confidence which is a good booster and enhancer of unequalled and unparalleled personal performance and development.

 

Having self-confidence should not be miscontrued as pride and arrogance,it is all about believing in your self that everything is possible since you have the innate ability and capacity to build and create the reality of your own world.

 

In order to make everything possible for you in the course of the year, there is a need for you to believe in the possibility of good  and great feats to happen in your life.

 

It is on the platform of this believe that you will end up attracting the success you are dreaming about.

 

Having a possibility and winning mentality cost you nothing but self appraisal and self-development that enhances your preparation for success in the course of the year.

 

You have what it takes to have possibility and winning mentality once your self-cnfidence is intact and rich in contents and contexts.

 

As the saying goes:

“Self-confidence makes a man;

If you don’t have it;

You are twice defeated in the race of life.

 

Never get defeated in the race of 2018,but be empowered and strengthened by raising the level of your confidence in whatever you believed in.

 

Possibility and winning mentality builds a world for you whereby any good thing you put your mind into and lay your hands upon ends up becoming an object of physical reality and a subject of reference in the course of the year

 

winning (1)
 NUGGET 19–NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

Be confident!!!

Never be chicken-hearted but be lion-hearted by living a life whereby possibility and winning mentality are the order of the day.

 


(PAGE 1—JANUARY 19TH 2018—NUGGET 19—NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.)

 

NUGGET 20: 20TH OF JANUARY 2018.

 

  • LEARN WITH THE RIGHT MENTOR.

In life,learning is constant and a continuous phase everyone is expected to experience and pass through from one stage to another.Whosoever stopped learning is as good as a dead man.

 

 

MENTOR (3)
NUGGET 20—LEARN WITRH THE RIGHT MENTOR.

Your living is encompassed in what you learn and it has a way of determining the impact and impart made by you in the course of your existence on earthly pedestal.

 

You become rich and wealthy in contents and contexts when you are rich and wealthy in learning.

 

Learning in the right way ,in the right manner and at the right time from the right person(mentor) solely for the right purpose enhances living in the right way for impacting the world at the right time.

mentor
NUGGET 20–LEARN WITH THE RIGHT MENTOR.

 

It is essential for anyone who desire a succesful sojourn in the course of 2018 to strive hard and struggle to the extreme to find every possible means of learning whatever is essential for growth and personal development.

 

It is until when learning births growth and personal development that your yearnings and longings for success become possible in the course of the year.

 

The new year delivers the pregnancy of your success when you endeavour in your own capacity to make learning a way of life in the course of year.This becomes possible when you embraced reading and skills acquisition that will stand as a booster and an enhancer of your drive to be succesful in 2018.


(PAGE 2–JANUARY 20TH 2018—-LEARN WITH THE RIGHT MENTOR).

 

NUGGET 21:JANUARY 21ST 2018.

 

  • BE A MENTOR TO OTHERS.

 

As it is important and necessary to be a motivator and an inspiration to others, so also it is necessary and mandatory to be a mentor to others.

 

Being a mentor is all about becoming and assuming a father and mother-figure to others especially those who  are looking at you for light and guide in the course of their journey in 2018.

 

There is a neeed for you to fill the vacuum created by the dearth of capable hands and mind viable enough to stand as mentor and maintains mentor to progenitor relationship that is gradually overwhelming this generation by preventing it from eating up posterity.

 

MENTOR (2)

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”.

31 BASIC NECESSITIES FOR A BIGGER,BETTER,BOLDER AND A BRIGHTER 2018(NUGGET 19,20,21) —7MINUTES READ.

As the month of January 2018 keeps rolling gradually with every day passing bye,I believe that so many people would have been able to start seeing and feeling what the new year hold for them.

 

While some people would have started taking steps accompanied with approaches that will birth the delivery of their dreams and passion for the year,others would still be caught up in their slothfulness and sluggishness in going out in full swing to get something doing that will birth the success the year is impregnated with.

 

We have been able to discuss comprehensively varieties of basic nuggets that are necessary to be part of us in our sojourn in 2018 with the release of nugget 1-18 that is designed to be one nugget per day.

 

In continuation of what we started, here comes Nugget 19,20 and 21 for your reading pleasure and for your viewing satisfaction.

 

Join me as we tread on the path of another series of knowledge-based compedium designed to add value to the essence of humanity.

 

It goes thus:

 

NUGGET 19:  JANUARY 19TH 2018.

 

  • NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

In order to make a meaningful and an impartful sojourn in the course of the 2018,one of the major attributes and virtues that will enhance the reality of the fulfillment of a year filled with series of succesful endeavour is the possession and the application of possibility and winning mentality.

 

No doubt about it, as the year ahead is laced with series of golden opportunities and the possibilities,so also is the year is laced with impossibilities.Even, the torrents of impossibilities will be more intense and wild.

 

WINNING
 NUGGET 19—NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

 

It is only those who have a possibility and winning mentality that will end up escaping the torrents and the scourge of impossibilities that will surface in the course of the year.

 

One of the best way through which the possession of a possibility and winning mentality can become part and parcel of your existence is by having self-confidence which is a good booster and enhancer of unequalled and unparalleled personal performance and development.

 

Having self-confidence should not be miscontrued as pride and arrogance,it is all about believing in your self that everything is possible since you have the innate ability and capacity to build and create the reality of your own world.

 

In order to make everything possible for you in the course of the year, there is a need for you to believe in the possibility of good  and great feats to happen in your life.

 

It is on the platform of this believe that you will end up attracting the success you are dreaming about.

 

Having a possibility and winning mentality cost you nothing but self appraisal and self-development that enhances your preparation for success in the course of the year.

 

You have what it takes to have possibility and winning mentality once your self-cnfidence is intact and rich in contents and contexts.

 

As the saying goes:

“Self-confidence makes a man;

If you don’t have it;

You are twice defeated in the race of life.

 

Never get defeated in the race of 2018,but be empowered and strengthened by raising the level of your confidence in whatever you believed in.

 

Possibility and winning mentality builds a world for you whereby any good thing you put your mind into and lay your hands upon ends up becoming an object of physical reality and a subject of reference in the course of the year

 

winning (1)
 NUGGET 19–NECESSITY FOR THE POSSESSION AND APPLICATION OF POSSIBILITY AND WINNING MENTALITY.

Never be chicken-hearted but be lion-hearted by living a life whereby possibility and winning mentality are the order of the day.

Being a mentor is all about becoming and assuming a father and mother-figure to others especially those who  are looking at you for light and guide in the course of their journey in 2018.

 

There is a neeed for you to fill the vacuum created by the dearth of capable hands and mind viable enough to stand as mentor and maintains mentor to progenitor relationship that is gradually overwhelming this generation by preventing it from eating up posterity.

PERSONAL MEMOIR ON LEADERSHIP.—(6 MINUTES READ).

This write-up formed my opinion on facebook yesterday that seems to be a refelection of my experience of the worse form of leadership that has been the realities of our society.

I believe it will serve the purpose of educating and enlightening my teeming viewers,readers and followers.

 

It goes thus:

 

It is foolishness for a leader who contributes nothing to expect followers and subordinates to contribute something.

 

Being inactive and passive in discharging your duties,roles and responsibilities as a leader makes your subordinates and followers passive and inactive in discharging their duties,roles and responsibilities.

 

It is share wickedness and extreme insensitivity on the part of any leader who fails to release the magic wand of good leadership to followers and subordinates but expect subordinates and followers to perform any magic that will entrench and establish the essence of good leadership.

 

Being inactive and passive exhibited in the form of levity,laxity and laziness dampens the spirit of your followers and subordinates leading to the trigger of a chain reaction culminating into confusion and poor performance.

 

The only reflection and exhibition of loyalty and respect that will be shown by your subordinates and followers will be done through unhealthy rivalry thatv is poisonous,acidic and toxic accompanied with eye service and lip-service chanelled towards expressing their loyalty to you at your presence but when you are absent,their loyalty to you fizzle out and their real self emerges in the form of deceit and mediocrity.

 

leadership
PERSONAL MEMOIR ON LEADERSHIP

 

The blame should be apportioned to the leadership style being adopted.Any leadership style that compromises truth and toil with falsehood will end up becoming a farce,an object of ridicule and inefficiency, and a subject of ineffectiveness.

 

The real purpose of leadership defined through leading by example must be shown vividly in terms of selflessness,sacrifice and through service that is qualitative,compassionate and unparralleled.

 

If you fail in making an impart by being a source of example in terms of hard-work to your subordinates,the value placed on leadership through the post or office occupied by you becomes challenging and your struggle to uphold efficiency and effectiveness among the rank and file of your staff that will birth the contiinuos and constant emergence of good performance will remain a hard nut to crack.

LEADERSHIP 1
PERSONAL MEMOIR ON LEADERSHIP

 

Leadership fails when it first of all fails followership by failing or refusing to lead by example.

 

An examplary leadership is a reflection of the values inherent in you that must be a totla package of your existence so that your subordinates and followers will not find it tedious to tread on the path you are treading upon.

 

As a leader, you should not ask your subordinates and followers what you fail in giving to them.

 

If you are lazy,expect your followers and subordinates to be lazy.If you are a perpectual late-comer,expect them to be perpectual late-comers.If you are weak in reasoning and you lack basic application of maximizing discretion at your disposal for the progress of your juridiction,expect your folowers and subordinates to follow suit by being weak and unreasonable.

LEADERSHIP 2
PERSONAL MEMOIR ON LEADERSHIP

 

Leadership is all about the stuff you are made of and it has a way of having a boomerang effect or green-house effect on the governed or the led.All that is in reality in our society is a function of the reality obtainable on the corridor of leadership.

 

It is the system in the society that makes leaders.The society makes leaders and leaders makes the society.

 

Confusion and grudges will be the order of the day coupled with unhealthy rivalry whenever any of your subordiantes tries to right the wrong you placed on ground in your domain because likes beget likes.

 

If you expect good followership,kindly become good leader that is good in proffering good and reasonable leadership style that will make leaders out of your followers and subordinates.

 

Any deviation from this concept is nothing but fluke and self-deception with foolishness being the resultant outcome.

BENUE MASSACRE—VAMPIRES ON LOOSE—(5 MINUTES READ).

The quietness of the night elude them,

Their rest became vaporised,

The heaviness of their eyelid disappeared,

They woke up in fear and with trembling,

They ran helter skelter,

In the middle of the night,

Their sleep was truncated with topsy-turvy,

And the cry for help took over,

The beautiful atmosphere of the night became sullen,

Vampires are everywhere,

Killing,murdering and maiming without control,

With their clubs and swords,

They expressed their meaness by butchering innocent souls,

Innocent souls slaughtered like cows,

Innocent souls butchered without control,

And the flow of blood surpassed the flow of blood in an abatoir.

 

 

 

While the fury of the rampaging vampires gushed out,

The blood of the innocent gushed out like water from a cistern,

While the flesh of the innocent were butchered and massacred,

While the bones of the innocent were crushed,

Hell was let loose,

And Benue State became a home of fury,

And blood was on the dancing floor,

Dancing and merrying were aborted,

Laughter and smiling were replaced,

With regrets,angusih and gnashing of teeth,

The dignity of humanity was disrespected,

While human body and physiology were destroyed.

 

 

 

It would have been understandable,

If this show of barbarism and cannibalism occurred during war time,

It could have been better if it happened on the battle field,

It became worrisome how a sovereign state in a sovereign country,

Governed by constitution,rules and regulations,

Suffered a gory incident,

Not from outsiders and strangers,

It was perpetrated by mere herdsmen,

And they succesfully take the life of others.

Without any remorse on their part.

 

 

 

Children were attacked,

Pregnant women lost their lifes,

Men’s throat were slith opened,

Foetus were opened up,

Many eyes were plucked out,

Limbs were broken,

Arms were lost,

Human parts were disembered.

Families were separated.

Widows amd widowers increased.

 

 

 

 

What an indiscriminate act,

What a show of indignity and apartheid,

What an act of inhumanism,

What a show of cannibalism,

What a display of terrorism,

What an exhibition of callousness and coldness.

 

 

 

The authority on ground were caught unaware,

Security apparatus became weak,

No one to render help,

And innocent souls fell into the hands of vampire,

Blood sucking demons were high in their kingdom,

At the sight of sword and gun shots,

The dove of peace left their nest and flew away,

As the crimson of blood occupied available spaces,

Vultures descended and took over the scenes,

And the carcases of lost human body became accessible to all eyes.

 

 

 

 

Where is the missing link?

Why is human souls cheap as water?

Why is our land is being torn apart?

Why is blood on our dance floor?

Why is living in Nigeria is extremely risky?

Why is human existence in Nigeria is a curse?

 

 

 

 

Till now,

No single arrest has been made,

No one has been locked up,

Everybody is folding their arms,

Everybody is using their mouth playing blame games,

And the anguish and agony,

From the affected and the deceased family remained.

 

 

 

 

Till now,

There seems to be no single way out,

A pointer to the fact that,

We should expect another attack in a the course of time,

Since our government are handicapped to toil on the part of reasoning and wisdom,

The vampires will be let loosed very soon,

And the vulture will take over again.

 

 

 

 

Why!

Why!!

Why!!!

 

bENUE MASSACRE (1)
BENUE STATE HERDSMEN MASSACRE—VAMPIRES ON LOOSE!!!

 

 

This is dedicated to all the people of Benue State at this down moment in their history.Even if we agree with our Vice-President that the perpetrator of this dastardly act should be forgiven,we should all remember that history will not forgive those who fan the amber of this show of cannibalism and barbarism.

 

 

 

This is a pointer to the fact that we are blessed in this part of the world with irresponsible and irresponsive government who have no value for human life.

 

 

 

All other states in the federation are planning and beginning to arm their indigenes especially local hunters to the teeth and it is becoming more clear that a nation that ought to be demilitarised is fastly becoming more militarised with arms and ammunition becoming cheap as water available at the disposal of every dick and harry.

 

 

 

No doubt about it,the APC administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari keeps disappointing the Nigeria nation by deviating wildly and making all their electoral promises unachievable.

 

 

 

No part of the country is safe now,every part of the country is having her own security challenges and there has never been no form of workable solution proffered to nib this in the bud.

 

 

 

All concerned Nigerians should rise up to challenge the level of insecurity being experienced in Nigeria presently if only we are passionate about our dreams of having an indivisible geographical entity called Nigeria to remain as one nation.

 

 

 

In conclusion,this is dedicated to the repose of the more than 70 Benue indigenes that were massacred and butchered by Fulani Herdsmen.

 

 

 

May their souls find peace that eluded them while they are alive.

 

 

 

Rest in Peace.

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.

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.

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”.

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.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.


(Page 2)

 

 

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

IMMIGRANTS SLAVE TRADE—A TALE OF TWO DESPERADOS. —(6 Minutes Read).

Emotions have been high and overflowing since the reality of slave trade popped up and splashed on our faces across the length and breadth of the entire world with everyone lending voice talking against the extremism and babarism that is quite unacceptable,unexpected and appalling with no excuse that is strong enough to be tendered as the rationle behind the ressurgence of this form of inhumanity.

 

Slave trade in Libya as it is presently is akin in all ramifications and descriptions to the tale of two desperados who are hell bent in making landmark effect in the course of their existence.The two actors or players are extremely desperate in their approach and understanding about the essence and purpose of human existence on earth.

 

The captive decided to run away and dodge abysmal harsh and unfriendly realities obtainable in the geographical space and entity tagged Nigeria or other African countries while the captor is ready to maximize the opportunity of a failed state being experienced in Libya after the strongman of Libya–Ghaddafi was succesfully overthrown,deposed and killed by the NATO invasion in 2011.The aftermath effect of this invasion brought Libya down into a state whereby human right abuse is the order of the day till this present moment.

WHO IS TO BE BLAMED–THE CAPTIVE OR THE CAPTOR?

This is a one million dollar question that needs to be carefully answered and clarified but deep critical analysis of the situation on ground concerning the ressurgence and ressurection of slave trade in Libya shows that nobody should be blamed rather  the society must be forced to swallow the bitter pill of carrying the brunch of the blame of producing leaders that lacked the understanding of the major neccessities that will help in building an eggalitarian society that can promote the essence and purpose of humanity whereby a gradual process of developing a class-less society is the main thing.

 

The blame and the shame of this incongruous and bastard act is on the entire society that made and mould the captive to believe that embarking on a journey to the land of the unknown for greener pasture is the only solution to their economic woes and abject poverty.

 

The blame and the shame of this inhumane act should be placed on the society for producing captors who believe in maximizing the reality of a failed state in Libya to fan the amber of apartheid and build walls of racial discrimination against black skinned in order to fetter the nest of maintaining a class in the society.

 

It is unnecessary and needless discussing Libya now because all around us is the presence of a task master that are good in promoting inhumanity and apartheid that is in existence in many shades and forms.


(Page 1)

Slavery has always been with us in different shades and colours which is as a result of a failed society where man’s inhumanity to man is not regarded as a crime.A society where evil is exalted over goodness,where indolence is not penalised,where merit is trampled upon by mediocrity.A society with foreign tastes and consumptive tendencies that puts vain possessions over human lifes.A society with docile cowards and megalomaniacs.

 

What a shame!!!


(Page 2)

“What can we call a governor that failed in paying workers salary over a long period of time without any tangible reason that is humanly acceptable by any standard?”

 

“What name can we give to an employer of labour that ought to release the renumeration of his or her teeming workers but decided to hold it without any reason?”

“What can we say about spouses that are good in hurling eveective,insults and domestic abuse to their partners or probably abusing and maltreating their domestic staffs?”

 

“What can we say about you doing less in performance than others but at the point of rewards, you are always swift and cunny to corner the lion share to your coffers?”

“What can we say about corruption,embezzlement,racketeering, nepotism,favouritism,prostitution and other vices and criminality?”

 

Without any iota of doubt,our world is a place that believes in suppressing and oppressing others in order for more territories to be cornered, carved and conquered.

SLAVE TRADE 1

 

Slave trading becomes part of us as long as we allow injustice and inhumanity to prevail and prosper over giving credibility, respect,reference and credence to the essence of humanity.

 

We should all understand that our society have been able to produce more slaves and more slaves merchants than what is happenning in Libya.Slavery is present all around us and we have been mum and mute about it.The concept of employing house-help and domestic staffs can be referenced as a form of domestic slavery because many of this indigent citizen being used as house-helps are always subjected to inhumaness without anyone raising an eye-lid.

 

We should control our emotions now and therefore think deeply about how far we have contributed our quota in buliding a society that prosper on class mentality conceptualised in pulling and stripping the dignity of others as a source of personal ego booster that is against the concept of building a virile eggelitarian society having room for building a class-less mentality in all the inhabitants of the society that will ensure that the concept behind the equality of all men is promoted and preserved.

 

No doubt about it that slave trading is happenning on Africa soil because the African Societies are so weak in their approach in protecting their people against human right abuse.All the realities of bad governance and leadership on the corridor of power in the continent of Africa are fashioned towards pulling down human right of their citizen.

 

 

slave trade b3

 

Many policies are being made today that is anti-masses with its ability to lull and ebbed the economic and purchasing power of the masses thereby creating abject poverty as a tools of keeping the masses down productively which enhances the thought of embarking on a suicide mission and a journey of no-return to the heart of Europe through the desert or through the high sea.

 

In conclusion, the days of woes of African Society continues until leaders all over the continent of Africa fashion ways and policies that will protect and preserve their teeming citizenry from human right abuse triggered by abject penury that has been the outcome of government policies that has no respect for the average man on the street.

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.

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.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.


(Page 2)

 

 

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

TODAYS EDITORIAL REVIEW–If you’re not happy with government, vote right in 2019—Ooni.—(5 minutes read)

This was the submission made by the Ooni of Ile-Ife,Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunnusi in an interview on “THE OSASU SHOW’ recently while addressing Nigerian Youth on the need to stop complaining about Nigerian government, rather they should put on their thinking cap in putting the right set of people into political offices through their vote in 2019.

 

 

In the light of this,this is the editorial review on the aforementioned by mylittlesimplethought”:

 

 

No doubt about it, he was right by challenging Nigerian youth to stop being spectators that spend bunch of their time lamenting and complaining about the present realities in Nigeria now.

 

 

It is not a gain saying that  Nigerian youth has been at the receiving end of bad form of governance that our so called leaders are known for.

 

 

The economy is at a low ebb, unemployment is skyrocketting, poor infracstructure, health sector and educational sectors are not left behind in being poorly managed by the present day government.Insecurity and poor electricity provision are part of the present realities the nigerian society is baffling with with no single solution in view that will put an end to these series of abnormalities and anomalies the nigerian society is experiencing.

 

 

The blame should be apportioned to nobody but the nigerian youths that have been passive and have no interest in their contribution to leadership in Nigeria.

 

 

Democratic principles gives us an opportunity to determine our fate every four  years in casting our vote for the right person but instead of conrtributing our quota in electing leaders that will serve us well, we are always fond of electing wrong and incompetent leaders as long as they are financially capable  and buoyant enough to use money to buy our votes and after electing them and they refuse to give us the dividends of democracy, we starts complaining and lamenting about the poor state of things in our society.

 

 

Instead of complaining and wailing, all hands must be on deck to take our destiny into our hands in casting our votes for leaders who understands deeply the what is needed to salvage the plight of the masses at the moment of our national existence.

 

 

In a country whereby leadership is defined in the concept of corruption and personal aggradisement to the point whereby some individuals can even be submitted to be far richers than the Nigerian State,there is nothing meaningful that will be outcome of such a society other than criminalities and vices with the future of our youth being a mirage.

 

 

The Nigerian society is in dire need of leaders that believed in sacrifices and selflessness, not leaders that are interested in leadership because of the juicy realities any of such position provides for those who are opportuned to navigate their ways to the corridor of power through crooked means.

 

 

The time to take action is now,we are almost getting to another electioneering period whereby many will surface from no where as a saviour but at the end when they get to the place of leadership, they end up playing brutus on people that invested their time and energy to the election that made them what they are.

 

 

Presently, there is no need for a dibia and soothsayer to tell all of us that we are in a deep shit with the way things are now.Many states government are having catalogues of salary arrears that are yet to be paid with their states been bankrupt now and the inhabitatnts of such states keep wallowing in abject poverty.

 

 

Nigeria is a nation that is blessed with leaders that knows little or nothing about the concept of leadership and this is really affecting the society at large with little or nothing to show as dividends of democracy since 1999.

 

 

It is time all nigerian youth stand up and rise up to their responsibility to fashion a way whereby our society becomes better.We should stop wasting our time lammenting about poor performance of our so called leaders who are bent on pushing this country into extinction and abyss of darkness.

 

 

The only time that give us the opportunity to get things right is every four years whereby we are always opportuned to decide our fate on the platform of balloting.Our fates for the future needs to be decided by us and it has to be developed and designed to the realm whereby posterity will have something meaningful as a record or breathough that they will meet on ground.

 

 

No one pray for battles and wars but the present realities and confusion been rampart in the Nigerian States might spell doom for the entire Nigerian nation with the drums of seccession, terrorism and extremism, Fulani Herdsmen attack,militancy, kidnapping and every other source of vices being in reality in the Nigerian Society.

 

 

The Nigerian States really need restructuring as it is submitted by erstwhile military ruler but resrtructuring is not enough if the structure of governance is still centre around prolifigacy and corruption is not niped in the bud on time.If we restructure without finding a means of eliminating the thirst of citizens of Nigeria for sharp practices, it will just amount to an effort in futility.

 

 

 

We are to build our future by ourselves by being active and participatory in taking the mantle of leadership that has the core of its tenets in sacrifice, servanthood and selflessness.It is until when this is done that our hope of building an eggalitarian society becomes achievable and a reality that will transcend the present and the coming generation will end up being a partaker of what is obtainable in this form of leadership.

 

 

The Nigerian nation must be saved from the grip of those who are bent and unrepentant in their desire in turning Nigeria to a failed state.

 

 

The time is ripe and rife for all of us to put our hands on deck to deliver this great nation from the grip of bad leadership that has made a country once known as a giant of Africa to be wallowing and struggling to live up to her expectation in every ramification of national existence.

 

 

Lets work together to build a great nation.

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 a long way to serve as an eye-opener to me as the author and every other person who desire deep inspiration and motivation that is neccessary 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 enhanced and empowered 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 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 sacrificed 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 prospered 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 for sugar cane propagation and plantation.

 

 

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  Thomas Jefferson,Kwame Nkrumah,Nelson Mandela,Martin Luther King Jr,Julius Nyerere of Tanzania,Obafemi Awolowo,Nnamdi Azikwe and others sacrificed to make sure that the continent of Africa experienced self-governance with the black race being recognised as an important part of human existential not as a commodity of exchange and all sorts of trade by barter that characterised those dark ages whereby human dignity is sacrificed on the altar of oppression and merchandising.

 

 

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 tutelage,training 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 was the success of their struggle that made them to become nationalist and a point of reference in human history with the stories of their sojourn in terms of impact and impart being chronicled in the encyclopedia of human history having a place in the shelve of human library and museum.

 

 

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”.

We are to build our future by ourselves by being active and participatory in taking the mantle of leadership that has the core of its tenets in sacrifice, servanthood and selflessness.It is until when this is done that our hope of building an eggalitarian society becomes achievable and a reality that will transcend the present and the coming generation will end up being a partaker of what is obtainable in this form of leadership.

 

 

The Nigerian nation must be saved from the grip of those who are bent and unrepentant in their desire in turning Nigeria to a failed state.

 

 

The time is ripe and rife for all of us to put our hands on deck to deliver this great nation from the grip of bad leadership that has made a country once known as a giant of Africa to be wallowing and struggling to live up to her expectation in every ramification of national existence.

 

 

Lets work together to build a great nation.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

 

The commissioners sworn in and their portfolios are:

  • Prof.Nnamdi Obiaraeri—–Information;

  • Lady Ugochi Nnana-Okoro—Agric.and food security;

  • Gertrude Oduka—Primary and Secondary Education;

  • Dr.Jones Uzoka–Niger Delta Affairs;

  • Uchendu Mark—-Public Utilities;

  • Gerald Okolie—-Rural development;

 

Others are:

  • Dr.Cyril Okafor—–Tourism;

  • Emmanuel Ojinere—Trade and Investment;

  • Chief Lasbery Anyanwu—Transport;

  • Onwueyiagwu Valentine—Youth Development;

  • Eke Chudi—-Ngor Okpala;

  • Aloysius Onwuegbuchulam—Njaba;

  • Paschal Onwukaike—-Nkwerre.


(Page 2)

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.


(Page 2)

 

 

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

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.

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.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.
