Lovely Story. Thanks sis Esther for this Let’s relate this to another life scenario. Little hands you stretched to someone else in need may the saving grace of another. Don’t think any thing you give to others from your heart is too small and you would prefer to withold. That N500 that you can afford to give may be all that person need to live. Nothing is too small to give as long as you give with sincerity and if the receiver thinks it’s too small,then he or she does not deserve it or was never in need. To give is a gift, not everyone is gifted to give so I don’t get upset when you can’t. I know those who swore never to give because of an experience..if with my experience in life, I should never be a giver but there is a blessing always attached to giving, an undeniable flow of joy. There is NOTHING we have that we were not given. Give life to another by extending your little hand of love.
#Ibori ‘s appointment into PDP Convention Committee and APC hypocrisy# By Lere Olayinka Let me help the APC goons running their mouths about PDP inclusion of former Delta State Governor, Chief James Ibori in the National Convention Committee. Fact is Ibori was convicted in UK, he has served his punishment, and imprisonment of anyone should be reformatory and not a stigma with which someone’s existence must be terminated. Now to the APC; 1. The first National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande was jailed in 1984 by a Tribunal duly set up by Buhari’s military regime for using funds belonging to the old Oyo State to fund his political party. Interestingly, Baba Bisi Akande was only released from jail and not pardoned by the Ibrahim Babangida government. It is also a fact that it was late Chief Sunday Afolabi who prevailed on the Osun State PDP not to go to court to raise the issue of Akande’s conviction vis his qualification to contest election as a governor in 1999. 2. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the APC Leader in the House of Representatives was convicted for professional misconduct by the Supreme Court of Georgia, United States of America. Fact is Hon Gbajabiamila was convicted in the United States for stealing his client’s $25,000 and he is leading the APC in the House of Reps. He was banned from practising law in the USA for 36 months. The punishment for Femi Gbaja’s offence would have been debarment for life, however he played dead before a full panel of the Supreme Court of Georgia led by Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, before the court could rule on the petition from his client, he filed a petition for Voluntary Discipline, filed under bar rule 4-227(b) in which he fully admitted to stealing $25,000 from his client. In spite of this indictment, Gbajabiamila was even presented to be Speaker of the House of Reps and same APC people are condemning the inclusion of Ibori in the PDP National Convention Committee. I have cited just too examples, and I still have more to cite if the APC loudmouth do not desist from throwing stones from the glass house where they live. My name is Lere Olayinka, I am in my house, and their DSS can come and arrest me for once again exposing the hypocrisy of the APC. #Hisssssssssh
“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.” – Isaiah 49: 25-25
Faces of Emerging Leaders of PDP..and their Ideologies… “As the PDP comes back into limelight breakingtimes xrays the possible emerging leaders in the PDP…find below an Ideological belief and code they intend to abide by We are the emerging Youth! We know how and what will make our Party great again! We pledge to live right, act right and speak right! We know the minds of the Nigerian Youth We have the key to unlock their hearts for our Party We speak our minds and hope that you listen We have the passion and zeal to lift us high and seek your counsel to keep us clean We are here to do all things right and well so help us God. Our Ideologies: 1. The only true and sustainable prosperity is shared prosperity-Joseph E. Stiglitz 2. Leadership is not about the next election, it’s about the next generation- Simon Sinek 2.There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right.-John F. Kennedy 3. A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way-John C. Maxwell 4. Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty-John F.

I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion- Alexander the Great 9. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” 11.The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves-Ray Kroc 12. It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger.

I don’t deal with people who can betrayed their friends, because of money or any material things … Femi Adesina will soon come after you to refund his money oh if you continue to criticize Buhari ?????… You sell out wan talk ? Abeg go continue your kparanga work jare for your UK…
Chief Dokpesi and every right minded thinking person will prefer to trust a Prince Shield that stood for the truth and remained with his PDP family when they were going through difficult times…. He believes in PDP not any individual….Unlike you that ran after Chief Dokpesi to APDA because of your stomach…. Abeg remove shame from your face and return to the PDP family where you rightly belong….
This is a puerile defence. If the sole aim is to avert mischief and malpractice I believe that the troops deployed by the police with their paraphernalia will address that. Can the Governor’s ADC outsmart and trump 26,000 officers? I smell a rat in all these. Hopefully we hope the polls will be free and fair.
It may be a friendly but it was played with finesse. Winning Argentina 4-2 is no mean feat. This result in my view is not diminished by the absence of Messi. It is not yet Uhuru for the Eagles. We can always improve by sharpening our blunt edges. The goalie is the poignant eyesore. In both short and long term the Eagles can get better by blooding good talents as we are doing and competing against good teams. I hope the momentum continues.
“The same country where people are afraid that female soldiers can be raped: Produced Queen Amina of Zaria Produced Queen Idia in Benin. If you go Westwards to Ghana there was Queen Mother Yaa Asantewa who fought the British. The Fon people in Dahomey in present day Benin Republic had an ALL FEMALE regiment that fought real wars. Queen Nany, a slave kidnapped from Africa to Jamaica, escaped into the Forests of Jamaica where she led several slave revolts. You know that world famous Benin Bronze head statue? THAT WAS QUEEN IDIA OF BENIN. ——————- Please, stop being clever by half. They did not stop women because they were afraid of them being raped. They did not stop women because the standards were being lowered. They stopped women because they could not stand the sight of men taking orders from women. Lowered standards my behind. As if we don’t already have quota generals who are men. Go tell the female fighter pilot in UAE that standards were lowered because she was female. Go tell the SEVERAL women in the Israeli Defence Force that they are there simply because they have a vagina, breasts and a womb. —————— Melissa Nealy and Rhonda Cornum were female American combatants who fought in the Gulf war. Their helicopters were shot down, and Rhonda Cornum was repeatedly assaulted………SEXUALLY. Women are still combatants in the US Armed Forces today. Sexual assault is an occupational hazard which any serious Army outfit informs its officers of, and makes therapeutic provisions for. It’s like saying because infection kills, NOBODY should be a Doctor. Let those who cannot, allow those who can. You think male soldiers don’t get raped and assaulted too?”- Obinna Aligwekwe.
Italy fails to qualify for the World Cup in 59 years. Tragic. No need to moan too long they should go back to the drawing board and kick-start another generation of players. Germany was in a similar situation after the disaster of Euro 2000 they failed to progress beyond the first round in that tournament. They went back revived their football and the dividends is still there till this date. Forza Azurri will be back!!!
