…Of Wars and Consequences
I am always puzzled by the leadership minds that reason together, and make decisions to go to war. True, there might be, on the surface, reasons to declare wars, either to stop on-going atrocities in some corner of the world, or to prevent another from happening in another corner of this same world; conquer new territories; teach that guy “who insulted my dad” a lesson,…

When Apple announced iCloud would be able to store and backup music files from iOS devices, the iPhone and iPad-loving community inhaled gleefully—imagine, all of our music, with no computer connection! It seemed too good to be true. However, in all honesty, our iPhone 4s arrived in the mail more than a month ago, and we have yet to sync our music with iCloud.
Google recently released their own version of cloud-based music hosting, simply called Google Music. While it does not stream…

Prior to the 1966 coup which ushered in General JTU Aguiyi-Ironsi, very few people in Nigeria had ever seen soldiers before. They were mostly confined to the barracks. Most of us in those days did not even know that Nigerians soldiers were sent to the Congo. Even now, most history books never recorded the exploits and bravery of Nigerian soldiers in the West African Auxiliary Force who distinguished themselves in the First and Second World Wars on the side of the British colonial masters in…Continue

Esaw (Esau) is a lesson in carelessness. More importantly how many of us as individuals exhibit the kind of attitude Esaw had in whatever endeavour we find ourselves in? Esaw was older than Yaaqob (both were twins) and in a time of hunger gave over the rights of the first born to Yaaqob (Jacob). To Esaw it was just an insignificant position till when the blessing of Yitsḥaq (Isaac) was given over to his younger – now older – brother.
Gen 25:29-34 And Yaaqoḇ cooked a stew,…Continue

Leadership without vision is fruition less. In observing leaders over the years, I have often asked myself several questions such as;
Does the man make the dream?
Or Does the dream makes the man?
My conclusion or the end-result is that both are equally true.
A man who does not commit 20-30 percent of its time to simply reflect on his/her vision or purpose for living is doomed to maintaining…Continue

A short while ago, at the 2011 World Population Day celebration, it was revealed that by October 31, Nigeria’s population would hit the 167 million mark; and would hit 433 million by 2050. To many, it was a verdict of a bleak future, and an imminent catastrophe. Nigerians then sat back to wait for an official reaction from our leaders. We might as well be waiting for the sky to fall down. But then, I was not very surprised.
Do these people - I mean our leaders - pay any attention to…Continue

Many years ago, those who do not share our political system common aspirations doubted if the country would survive as a viable economic entity, judging by its size, corruption, and missmanagement of our natural resources. But with President Jonathan, Nigeria is at a cross road due to lack of leadership in the country.
The president indeed have proved that the survival of a country does depend on abundant natural resources but not on a pragmatic and purposeful leadership. The President…

Plea bargain is an agreement in a criminal cases whereby the prosecutor offers the defendant the opportunity to plead guilty, usually to a lesser charge or to the original criminal charge with a recommendation of a lighter than the maximum sentence.
A plea bargain allows criminal defendants to avoid the risk of conviction at trial on the original more serious charge. For example, a criminal defendant charged with a felony theft charge, the conviction of which would require imprisonment…

An entrepreneur wanted to make shoes for the Aborigines in Australia. He elicited two of its employes to go and find out which kind of shoe the savages could like.
One of them reply: they have never worn any shoe; it would make no sense to them.
The other said: Great! this is the opportunity for them to discover shoes.
You see, you out to look for possibilities. Change means seizing possibilities.…Continue

Why Nigeria Lacks Great Leaders-by Femi Aderupatan
Great leaders have to be capable of inspiring others. Either by offering an exciting vision of the future, even if it turns out to be the dark and perverted vision offered by Hitler, and by that token a dull speaker like Bill Gates can inspire people with his vision of the future. Or by appealing to people's idealism and desire to do good as…

This week, on Sunday – the first day of the week – I listened to a drama aired by the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN). Pleasantly, it was about a lady desirous of getting married but faced with a daunting task of choosing whom amongst two differing suitors she would give her hand to. It made for entertaining listening as I had just looked up the Scripture portion for the week and – you guessed - it too was speaking about a marriage although not one as perplexing or tinged with…Continue
