How to stand out in the society as a woman.

February 12, 2018 | Articles | 4 Comments

Nowadays, the society expects more from us than it was in the early stages of our lives. It is often said that “a child who washes his hands well, dines with elders”.

I hate to break it to you, but the elders are done eating. You might even have to go through the front door, there the king dines with emperors and wise men.

Let’s not deviate, here’s a few tips on how to be the boss lady every successful guy would want to be with.

You must learn daily.

Learning is life, and to live a fulfilled life, one must learn how to stay updated and informed. In this jet age where technology is the order of the day, it is important to understand how to use it to your advantage. The society didn’t have much respect for women, but times have changed and the women are at the forefront, leading. Your mobile phone is the most important tech support you need, it’s your partner, friend and colleague. You must work with it to work for you, it’s not just made for selfies, it is made to educate you and broaden your understanding by giving you access to a quick reload at the very instant.

You must be creative.

Creativity is something people, especially men find attractive. So if you want to stand out from the rest, you must dabble into making things better with your own hands. Do not be lazy, sometimes instead of going to the salon to style your hair, you could sit in front of a mirror and try to get your hands working for you. Being creative is not very easy, but creativity comes solely from imagination. You have to be magical with thoughts and be able to bring them to life.

One thing is certain, self confidence helps to foster creativity. It is your confidence that will bring out the boldness you require in order to defend your creations.

You must be patient.

To stand out, you must be patient with words, listen attentively to your heart and find the real sense in every critic before reacting. And as you will be conversant with failures and tribulations, be ready to become extremely consistent with learning and restructuring all your failures.

Reality is, every swag is a style…. this implies tryouts. Just like fashion is considered to be “the good side of flaws” so is our day to day activities. Bringing out the best, looking forward to correcting errors, reducing the regrets and taking risks.

People mostly reckon with game changers” and to stand out, you must be willing to break out from the norm.

Ten Reasons To Vote Out JAMB. 

January 12, 2018 | Articles | 3 Comments

It is saddening how the fate and future of our young generation is being decided upon by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board.

If the economy and entire government is making us depend on a University Certificate for our survival, then JAMB should be scrapped out. It’s rather rendering our educational sector irrelevant, as well as a Twelve years of educational training. 

  1. If after Twelve years of learning and development, the government can indirectly decide that the West African  Examination Council (WAEC) certificate is not valid and genuine enough to grant us entry into a university, then it’s safe to say that our Education Sector is a big joke. 
  2. Nigerians should not be punished for this instabilitity and indecisive approach, rather we should be encouraged and empowered. The idea of JAMB is time consuming, frustrating and unnecessary. If we analyse carefully,  we’d understand the shortcomings and unnecessary expenses it entails. 
  3. JAMB should be free. Since the federal government has given JAMB so much relevance and credit, then they should make it free for all. The Universal Basic Education  (UBE) is a body set up to enhance a better education for young Nigerians, and I think it’s time the UBE gets involved in this. 
  4. JAMB is not giving Nigerians access to the education that’s deserving, rather it’s building an impenetrable fence between prospective students and the universities in the country. 
  5. If WAEC can grant us entry into a foreign university, of what importance is JAMB to us? Even though the educational standards of those foreign universities are legit and impeccable, yet our WAEC Certificate is just about the most important thing required of us.
  6. JAMB is more likely a money bag set up by the government, working hand in hand with the universities in Nigeria, basically set to milk away the little funds we slave enough to earn. And as it stands, JAMB IS NOT WORKING FOR US. 
  7. After paying for WAEC, we spend days writing the exams set by the WAEC body, which is basically the only passport and surest qualification granted to us at the end of a Twelve  (12) years learning process. These same universities take out these same scripts, twist them up and set up another exam indirectly using the JAMB body to scrutinise and defraud us.
  8. The money, the time, the brains, the government and the education system is for the people of Nigeria. It’s time to put a stop to the discrimination, the abuse, the hurts and disappointments arising from these scrutiny. The slavery must be stopped, the Nigerian student is good enough, well learned, fearless and strong enough to be admitted into a Nigeria University. 
  9. JAMB is an insult to the West African Examination Council, regardless of whether or not the government agrees to spell it out. JAMB in association with the federal government has given the Nigeria Universities a “go ahead certification” that’s basically there to promote discrimination, tribalism, favoritism and nonchalance in these various schools, thereby reducing humanity in education to zero.
  10. JAMB is a manual process of indirect fraud. Whether or not we like it, many children are sitting at home today without a university admission after several purchase of the JAMB form. Nigeria students needs to be empowered and educated, we don’t need jamb when we already have WAEC.  

Just as the Nigeria students are being rejected by schools and colleges today, the labour market however murders our lifetime struggles by refusing us access to good jobs, because we didn’t attend some of the popular universities in Nigeria. 

The veil has been lifted, the people no longer walk in the shadows. Let us not be swayed, we are a strong people, with rights. 

The Elites and discrimination 

January 11, 2018 | Articles | No Comments

It is often said that “love conquers all” but with the elites, convenience is considered before love.

A lot of people come out on social media to brag about their strengths and charms, when deep down it is all a “make believe act” putting up the “I don’t care” attitude, I tell you boldly today. They Care, more than you and I, they’re mostly afraid of what others think, so they subtly brainwash followers and fans into believing otherwise.

The Elites and Critics.

Rich and famous people don’t do well with critics, that’s why some of them subject to drug use and alcohol intake. They always want people to commend them, praise them and be there for them. Technically, they’re emotionally lazy because they’re not independent thinkers.

Likewise, when dealing with people of lower class, they tend to think some people who can’t afford certain things are not working hard enough. Of course it’s not true in most cases, because if not for their parent’s wealth most of them won’t amount to pretty much anything spectacular.

Making Mom and Dad Proud.

The rich people don’t give their kids the space and growth they deserve. They shrink them up by controlling everything, even to the extent of choosing their friends and close contacts. Apparently, these kids are supposed to be superkids, no errors, no nonsense because they don’t want the public to know that their kids can faulter. This in essence turns these kids into believing that they must be outstanding in all.

With so much fear of “mom and dad are going to be mad” they tend to get mixed up in a lot of dirty deals, unwholesome bargains and inappropriate behaviors in school and in the society. They can do anything to cover their tracks so that their parents do not find any dirt on them.

Whom to marry.

Gone are those days when arranged marriages forced some people into leaving with monsters and witches. I hate to break it to you, it’s still very much happening. Who else would a rich parent recommend for their son/daughter, if not one of their business partner’s child? After these things happen, majority of them visits night clubs and flirt around because they’re not happy with their marriages.

They’re so used to affluence, they can’t just date any random person because they can’t understand the ways of these middle class folks. Especially if they have nothing in common, they can’t manage such tough situations. So, in some cases, it’s almost impossible for the elites to date with the simple minded or lower class people. Their way of life and personality is distinctively different from the humble breed.

Cutting You Off.

These phrase is often used as a threat from an angry rich parent to their child, especially when the child goes against their wishes and hopes. Some people think, a parent resort to threats when all else fails, but i disagree with that myth. i believe it is a selfish thing to do, because a child is different from he who raised him/her, so there should be freedom to grow independently and also the liberty to err and make proper decisions be granted.

Some parents just want their kids to continue in their footsteps, thereby enjoying that which they’d already been cut off from in time past. This is the most absurd way of life, but it is rampant in our homes and society. The children are forced to do that which profits their parents, thereby creating some sort of deep dissatisfaction and unhappiness for their own kids.

It is like a “bread of infinity” which never leaves the oven, always warm enough to be passed unto the next generation. Dissatisfied and unhappy people gradually develop the habit punishing others for the pains and losses they’d suffered in the past.

Therapy is always an option, happy people find solutions and not cast blames.
