Honoring God and Blessing Humanity

Honoring God and Blessing Humanity

For all the Lord has done, He’s doing and He will yet do, I am grateful. I am a product of grace and nothing else. When I was born, people gathered to mourn for my parents, saying, ‘a girl? What will she become?’ To them, girls did not amount to anything. Growing up, I remember […]

Synergy In Business

Synergy In Business

It is said that synergy is a business enhancer. I agree totally because I believe also that synergy is the way to move forward in most things in life.  One of the religious books even states: One person can chase 1000 (enemies) but TWO can chase 10,000 – a multiplying supernatural equation that defies explanation.

Life as I know it is full of ups and downs, but when you go through traumatic incidents, it is very hard to find the strength to get back up and keep on pushing.   The year 2014 was a revelation to me. I decided to go into politics, unaware of the intrigues, expense and […]

Giving up is not an option

Giving up is not an option when all options have not been tried.  In the face of obvious challenges, continue to pursue your goals. I was twenty-five years old when I started to work as a journalist at the Nigerian Television Authority, Channel 7, Tejuosho, Lagos State.  A few months after, I was faced with […]
