The Nigerian Youth Is Made For More…

If i turn on the TV and i see one more singing or dancing competition ad, i think I’ll scream and punch somebody. As much as i don’t want this to sound like a rant, i can’t help but register my dismay at the proliferation of these “become instantly famous so called talent competitions”.
Nigeria’s youth population is already plagued by a non-functional educational system, an economy in recession,  a political class that have no use for them except during elections, an astronomical decline in morality and a lack of direction.

Christianity In The Face Of Fuel Crisis

It’s an understatement to say Nigeria is in the thores of one of the fiercest energy crisis she would ever face. And needless to say Christians and non christians alike are affected. Its natural to feel anger and fraustration at the way our government is handling the situation and be tempted to vent out our feelings.

we definitely can’t bury our heads in the sand and act like we are insulated from what is going on. I mean, i don’t know about you but i don’t have electricity and i have no fuel to power my generator and the cost of cooking gas has doubled. so yeah. we are all in this together.

But how do we stay in faith, maintain positive confessions and maintain our intergrity? Christians are being tempted to sell at hiked prices a.ka (Black Market) to make quick money.  For some of us, it’s the despondency, the anger and the need to lash out and speak negatively.

It’s Been 1 Year Already… #BringBackOurGirls

It’s a rather sad day today in Nigeria. April 14, 2014 will go down the annals of history as one of the most sombre days in our history.

Nigerians have cried, protested, begged, advocated and even with international community influence, the over 200 girls abducted by the Boko Haram in Chibok, are not home.

But the tears will not last forever.

Psalm 126

When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,[a]
    it was like a dream!
We were filled with laughter,
    and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
    “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
    What joy!

Restore our fortunes, Lord,
    as streams renew the desert.
Those who plant in tears
    will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed,
    but they sing as they return with the harvest.

 

Now That CHANGE Is Here…

You might be surprised that I would write about this. But don’t be. I am born a citizen of this great country called Nigeria after all.

It’s been a tension filled weekend for most people and for those of us in the media, we’ve had to work overtime while treading on eggshells. Finally, the much awaited presidential elections are over and the people have voted their choice.

More importantly, I believe God had a hand in the outcome of this election. Things could have gone awry. There was so much anger, so much division, and so much rancor but in spite of foreign government predictions, God held us together and we are still one nation.

#BringBackOurGirls: What The Lord Is Saying To Us….

We have cried, we have spoken out, we have complained, and we have protested. We have heard from government officials, (whether we believe them or not is not the case here) and  we have heard from the media, both local and international. However in our grief, anger and pain, let us not lose sight of what’s most important; hearing from GOD.

Concerned About Corruption in Nigeria? Join The INTEGRITY NETWORK!

Nigeria’s natural place in the world is to emerge as a developed nation, proving that the Negro is inferior to no other. The great work of Martin Luther King Jnr. And Nelson Mandela  in the last century need to be validated by an economically and technologically successful  nation built substantially by Negro genius and talent. This challenge is naturally Nigeria’s, but this Divine destiny is slipping out of our fingers, blighted by several vices, the chief being corruption.

Seeking Justice For Alice!

 

My heart is extremely broken at the Injustice and Indignity a lady was forced to suffer at the hands of an uncaring employer and a company that obviously doesn’t care about it’s employees.

It’s bad enough to be forced into a below minimum wage job as a result of the country’s dire economic situation, but to be assaulted and treated like an animal is just too much to bear in silence.
