‘Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed’. Proverb 19:17

‘You are not yet a believer [in God and in His religion] until you want for your brother what you want for yourself’. Hadith 13 of An nawawi collections.

I started this write-up with quotes from unarguably the two most influential personalities that ever liveth. These are not just quotes but great parts in the philosophy of religion and socialisation. The personalities here mentioned have not only preached but practices the doctrine of charity and association. According to them, it is not fair enough to live a luxury life while your neighbour struggles.

We were enjoined to give not only by our religions but also by our culture and traditions. As far as I know, no standard culture forbids charity. Charity is the baine of togetherness. It fosters unity and promotes peace. Moreover, it heightens the status of the giver. A popular Yoruba adage reads: the hands of the giver remains top. This is to show the impact of generousity.

On this note, I seek to call your attention to a suffering community in Moro L.G.A in Kwara state, Nigeria. Omilende Community suffers lack of clean water. A community of over 250 resident have been drinking from a river that they the concomitantly bathe in for 28 years now.

Pathetic right?

keffi%20r%201Health, they say, is wealth and obviously a cleaner environment keeps unwanted diseases away. Moreover, Richard Rogers (a British Architect) once said that ‘the only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved’. This notion had propelled the Corp members in the Environmental protection and sanitation CDS group in Keffi local government of nasarawa state on 11th March, 2016 to stage an organized rally within the community to sensitise the dwellers, travelers and indigenes of their host community, keffi.

The rally came at a time when the trending haemoragic viral infection, lassa fever, claimed the life of a fellow Corp member and medical doctor (Kelechi Ogboji) who served in Continue reading

Nigerian Lawmakers scaling the NASS fence

With the way my fellow brother and sisters in the ‘youth industry’ are criticizing (as usual) the president’s #ministerialList, I think I have been forced to talk.

But before I proceed, isnt it this same Nigerians that voted for change? Are they not the the same set of people that were backing every Buhari’s appointments just last month? So why the sudden change? Well, I know quite well the reason for the change. Una sef want ministerial portfolio abi? No problem, but lemme just remind you sey ‘na hand wey work na im dey chop o!’. Tor!

Back to the matter at hand, we (youth) have resumed again to our regular game of criticism. The one game no other age bracket plays better than us. Infact, I think the present administration should endeavour to create for us a Ministry of Criticism. Maybe then we will have our share of the ministerial cake. But as it stands, am sorry if you think am wrong, we don’t deserve any of the ministry on ground. Ask me why and I will give you reasons.

The first reason, just as I have said in pidgin above, is that ‘you cant reap from what you did not sow. There is no way you will climb the ladder of success with your two hands in your pocket. The truth is we always want success cheap. We are not ready to struggle real length for success. Yet we criticize the successful. Let me ask you a question; when this old men were busy delivering their respective states and region to the president in the 2015 polls, where were we? Shebi we were here on this regular platform (social media) helping them count their gains. We sat at home watching T.V while they were at the war front risking their lifes and integrity. Till date, some of them haven’t recovered well from the clash. Many of them are paying the price by being scapegoats of justice. So many of them have been witch-hunted by both the tribunal and the judiciary. Did you ask yourself why no youth have been vindicated so far? Ok, that’s none of your business shebi? U just sit at home and start making memes of them in the dock. U sha want the ministerial slot but you aint ready to pay the price. Don’t be a coward bro.

The youth of today have been brainwashed and made to believe that Continue reading
