Tension – Which way Nigeria

Image
I guess it is time to ditch our ostrich mentality and really take a critical, analytical and conscious interest in what is happening in our country. Every day I go out, people are going about their business as usually, are we blind or deaf to the rumbling and cracking around us?

We have become so complacent that we take a lot of things for granted. We fold hands, we talk, and we argue at bars and public buses and insult ourselves on social media on issues boarding on the unity of this country. All these with little or no positive action or positive ideas on how to stop this evil tide before it carry us into turbulent waters.

Are we going to allow history to repeat itself? A group who called themselves, the Northern Youth had issued a 90-day ultimatum to igbos to leave the north. Yah, the Kaduna Governor has spoken, the V.P has spoken and the 19 Northern Governors have spoken too.

But that’s words, are we going to trust their words. Well their action or inaction will determine if …

What you need to know about money

Image
Whatever can be said or written about money, it’s importance to life can never be  demeaned. Love it or hate it; though I never heard of anyone who hates money, money is a legal tender that understands every language on earth, it comes in all kinds of colour and design, from the olden days’ cowries to modern day paper notes and coins, they are the fulcrum of our life.

   Some will tell you that money is the root of all evil according to the holy Bible, but that’s quoting it out of context. The Bible says, the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. The love of money is what breed evil, jealousy, envy, murder and pride, not money itself. Like it is written money is a good servant but a bad master. Money is meant to serve us and never the other way round. When you twist this order, you twist your life’s order as well, man is made to control money, but when you allow the love of money to control you, to be the domineering thing in your life, then you’ve lost your sense of direction.

Broken- my latest book

CHAPTER 1
  What a day!      A humid atmosphere, a weather like a blast furnace, you would think someone left the portals of hell open as hot airs oozed out and swirled around.     As I stood under the sweltering air waiting to be attended, my patient snapped, face puffed up with anger, I raised my voice at the fish seller. “Madam, please hurry up now or do you want me to sleep in this market?”        “Aunty me, a beg no vex I dey come.” With both hands up in supplication, she appealed to me.     These market women could be irritating, once they collect your money, they left you standing to attend to a new customer.       The harshness in my voice and my unsmiling face made her stopped haggling with the next customer, and with a plea for her to wait, she took the fish I paid for, cut it, wrapped it and gave to me with a smile meant to thaw my anger.      I took it and ignored her smile. I didn’t need it; she had kept me more than necessary under a boiling sun. Once I stowed the fish i…

Why am I a Christian?

Image
At times it is not that you don’t believe, but some days, events and circumstances make you doubt your faith, doubt the existence of God, and His presence in your live. You wonder, if there is God, why should I lose a loved one at a young age, if there is God why should my spouse die, if there is God, why should he allow a whole family to be wiped out by an enemy.You may wonder, I am a Christian, I trust God, I believe in Him, I worship Him, so why should he allow evil and calamity to grace my path, and then you ask, what’s the essence of being a Christian.
A woman was once told a car hit and killed her daughter, her first comment was, “but I prayed this morning, I covered all my children with the blood of Jesus.” Then she looked up and asked. “God, Why?”

Yes, God, why? is a question most Christians ask, especially when calamity assaults us. The bible tells us that no one can question God. He owes us no explanation for the things He does and how He does it. He is G…

When she resigned from her salary work, she went into picking pure-water packing bags off the street, she gathered so much that when she got a company to buy them, she made six hundred and fifty thousand naira, that straightens her resolves that there is money in the recycling
