What The National Stadium Told Me

(My Conversation With Lagos SportsCity) That was a few weeks ago. I was invited to a religious programme and at the National Stadium.

10th Month For Rededication

Our message this month is a call to rededication, as we heed the charge to stay afloat in terms of upright attitude and righteous conduct.

2019, TO BUILD A NATION OF THEIR DREAMS

With the prevailing harsh economic situation in the country, a state of depression (or is it recession) that has been designed by yet to be established architects, the countdown to the next general elections in Nigeria appears to be comical, yet laced with trepidation.

Nigeria’s Youths And The Metaphor Of Moses

Spending time and space defining a youth or whom the youths are is no longer necessary for by their fruits, we have known them. Right from May 1999, the Nigerian Youths have been working tirelessly performing every other political function except what they were divinely anointed and constitutionally mandated to do.
