ADAPT AND REDEFINE

The only constant in life is CHANGE.

It has been a while. Time has passed, memories were created, and friendships were formed while others were broken, pain was felt, hope was held unto, beliefs were tested, risks were taken, experiments were carried out, tests were conducted, opportunities were both lost and utilized, and love was found.

NIGERIA AND ITS YOUTH: THE IMMIGRATION SAGA

screen_20121001_112827.jpg

NIGERIA, in recent time, has carved a name for itself in the world as the most populous nation on the African continent. This has led to the assertion by many business analysts that it is one of the most promising investment destinations due to the large consumer market it has. As promising and good as this might sound, Nigeria is also a country that is plagued with recurrent political, ethnic and religious crises. This has succeeded in delaying or in most cases stopped investors from tapping into its vast consumer market and so, Nigeria remains a country with vast opportunities but with little to show in terms of development and the welfare of its citizens.

ASSUME BUT COMMUNICATE.

Above & BeyondThere are instances when we decide to base our decisions on assumptions and not facts. There are also, instances when we put together facts to create assumptions which we ultimately decide that since its gotten from facts, then it is indeed a reflection of reality or at least an explanation of it. We can also argue that sometimes, solutions to problems could be gotten by making informed assumptions and taking decisions based on these. But back to the reality that is life and what is of most importance- relationships- assumptions could be deadly. Continue reading

The Positive Nigerian.

It´s fascinating how in the quest for answers, which is one amongst the list of many important things that make up the collection “life”, one finds himself with other questions. This is a trick of life that we have come to know. Humanity knows that knowledge along with other simple things as peace, love and belief, is something that makes life easy and worthwhile, the thing of beauty and intrigue that it is. “The mere fact that man continually and diligently seeks more knowledge and pursues further research is a confession that there is so much we yet need to learn”.

Constructive debates within social circles about what’s affecting the entire nation are rare in this country. Everything turns into an argument or a platform to rain insults or an avenue to start pointing fingers. Unbiased criticism is not available. Everything has to be partisan.

If we can’t look past our differences to bring out a common solution to our problems while respecting every opinion and view, we are bound to fail. If we can’t come to terms within ourselves, we have no right to expect any functionality of our government. We are as broken as they are.

Change starts within before it can be spread to society in general. Discipline can’t be taught to another without allowing it to reflect from us. We can’t expect the good while associating with the bad. Change is not something that happens, its something you invite.

Dear Nigerians, let’s GET INVOLVED in the positive process of salvaging our nation.
