A ladder for a bushel.

When you are fully formed, your plans and actions are reliant on what you want out of life. My choice is to be a ladder for a bushel, and a lantern to many more I have a multitude depending on me and expectations will never diminish. If I fail, many will flounder; struggle to recover….

And the Night woke.

And the Night woke while the day raced to dawn: Man is awake while the night is asleep all creatures must harvest and recover lost energy. Man is awake due to the beauty of the silence of night. Man is awake to earn the wisdom distilled by the hush of the night. The beauty and…

THE BLESSINGS OF FAILURE

Have you ever wanted something so much that you didn’t even think about any other possibility? Your whole attention focused on the objective; with a relatively poor consideration for the journey to goal attainment. You want something so much that you feel like the world would end if you do not achieve that aim. Well,…

NOW THAT WE ARE IN CRISIS, WHAT GOOD CAN WE GAIN FROM IT?

The world is like the fruit paw paw; sweet, nutritious and delicate. Unfortunately, sweetness is not an attribute of the paw paw leaf. Suffice it to say that the paw paw tree is a crisis plant oozing with bitter sweet experiences. The world today is no different from the paw paw tree as it is…

IF YOU NO GET VALUE, HIDE YOUR FACE.

  Last night was wonderful, I had a really good rest only to wake up and it seemed like I was under a rock for a few centuries. Don’t be alarmed, we can share my shock. Between when I went to bed at 11.30 Pm and the time I woke up: 5. Am, so much…

FEDHA

It is amazing how little children respond to sounds, and the different emotions expressed through their eyes. In most cases where they can relate with it, it is a rhythmic movement of the body. We were all like that at one point in our lives. As we grew up, the sounds began to be less…

A Sinking Ship

Nigeria reminds me so much about James Cameron’s 1998 movie “Titanic” with the mixture of fortunes and of course the hobnobs choice passengers had. She can indeed be likened to a ship which set sail some fifty five (55) nautical miles from her present location to a destination that is the dream of all passengers….

OUR COMMON WEALTH

On the 3rd of September, 2015, it was reported by AfrAsia Bank and the New World Wealth that there are about 163,000 millionaires in Africa. Mind you, the currency of reference is the United States Dollar. This got me wondering about the number of African billionaires there are, so I visited my friend- Google who…

Falling Oil Prices: A Blessing to Nigeria

Oil prices are dropping. 1st August, $104 per barrel, 28th October, $82 per barrel and today, December 15 the price stands at approximately $58.65 per barrel. Are we at the bottom? Can it get worse than this? The prophets are prophesying already, “Doom awaits Nigeria”. Really? As an Econo-jurist of this great nation, I hereby…

Oil and gas: The stimulant for wider national development

Nigeria’s oil and gas sector is, and has been for many years, a glaring paradox. The reasons for this are well known. We are the ‘12th largest producer of petroleum in the world and the 8th largest exporter, and have the 10th largest proven reserves’.  Yet, we import the majority of our petroleum products. We have…
