“Time For National Orientation”

image

Orientation is self appraisal that should not be limited to graduates just coming out of school. It has to cover all facet of our life. Most especially, among our teeming youth who hasn’t been to higher institutions. And adult alike .

Ours is a nation that embraces all wrong notion and attitude that could not lead us to self reliance and sustainable growth. The craze for money and power has no bound. The level of self centeredness dusted value creation and communual benefits.

image

We should be very careful not to allow decadence of today to affect our tomorrow. So, we must learn now how to do things right and shelve off our old unproductive ways. Nigeria lack everything from what to eat to what to use. The so called natural resources, its abuse and corruption brought damaging negligence. Now is the time to redirect our way back to meeting our needs by ourselves. Taking the nation out of consumers of everything FAIRLY USED to a productive nation with infantry of trained human resources SKILLED to meet our needs.

image

Let the nation go back to drawing board. Let’s start to THINK NIGERIA. Drastic challenge need a drastic solution. Let us embrace productivity and sustain every productive effort however small it is to be nurtured to growth. Call on those who have deep knowledge of production of physical items for START UP. Let that be a production points and a ground for skill acquisition. That should be the vehicle to industrialisation.

image

In National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC), there is Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneuship Development (SAED) through which coppers are exposed to skill acquisition on certain vocations such as tailoring/dress making, textile designing, bead/jewelry making etc. In very light format.

image

Many of the corpers from my close observation do take the training lightly due to the fact that many of them have employee mindset.

What difference would just 21 days of orientation make against the background of 4-5 years spent in higher institution?, Couple with the fact that many went through school without school being through them, in most cases. Such ones are always eager go through the camp and put it behind to face labour market.

Where would the job be? When those that supposed to create it are out there looking for what is not available.

Solutions:
*Let there be skill acquisition programms running parallel to academics in schools.
*prepared the youth for industrial training, involvment and collaborations.
*encourage coming together of like mind for partnership and joint ventures.
*availability of light grant for take off.
*incorporating seasoned professioners to train youth. People loaded with experience who have put in years into their vocations. Certificate or no certificate. They are the lifewire to sustainable industrial turn around. Meet their need to get the best out of them.
*Provide infrastructure and imputs (raw materials)
* Test their capability and capacity.
* Set target and standards of productions.
* Mop up the finished goods. Just like what happen to cocoa produce years back.
*Create marketing outfits to take these Made In Nigeria Procducts around trade shows, exhibitions and trade fairs.
* This in a way would be genuine Public/Private Partnership that would be result oriented and that will touch life across the board.
We all desire Change and had brought a new government in place. Their intention seem real but what about implementation? Many people could hardly be separated from their old ways. They must be shown that COMMON SUCCESS of the Nation is far far better than individual success we use to see.

WE ALL NEED RE-ORIENTATION FROM THE TOP TO THE VERY BOTTOM. May the Lord help us. Amen.

“Platform With:Listening Ear# Human Heart”

A training ground
Where a novice
Stepped unto
Like a red carpet event.
Even if your
Content is not showy.

With chisel
And panel beating
Here and there.
Stream lining come to bearing

Like a two seater jet
With Propelling
Rolling blade
Humming humorously

For whoever
Want wing attachment,
Taking off is
AUTOMATTIC

Unless you are
Too robotic.
Let there be
Flexibility in your wing string

Flying is a way
Of life here
@ WordPress
Get brushed and get polished.

“Sorry:No Dollar”

image

In Nigeria, Dollar shop is close. What do I mean by this? It is now not allowed for any nigerian, it does not matter the kind of your business, from the big importers and those that have to spend few dollars to pay through their dollar denominated debit card for services, training, domain name, hosting, products etc. There is dollar road block.

That’s the new policy of Central Bank Of Nigeria. Henceforth, no commercial banks must accept foreign currency deposit on the counter. Even in banks, your naira cannot be converted to foreign currency. Only your hard currency if you have any, could only be converted to naira.

If you’re not yet loaded and have reserves, the way of meeting your commitment is closed for now till the government revisit and amend the policy.

This regulation came as a hard knock of the CHANGE we asked for, though quite unfortunate for those of us who have small small commitment to make here and there. But no one can question the wisdom of the government on this. We should just give them time to sort things out.

The decadence in our financial sector is staggering. Imagine ex -secretary of government parastatal nabbed at the Airport with $1m cash on his way out!

That’s the time we found ourselves. It is not yet fully comprehended the effect of the new policy but which ever way it goes, nigerians will learn to live by it.

“No Structure:No Substance”

image

IoIn our national life, many people just want to make it. Make money witiohout being ready for the work, commitment, patient ,perseverance etc, that it takes to get wealth. They want it in a jiffy. Overnight or now now wealth,

Some are not even interested in any legitimate means. They can go diabolic just to get wealth.

Politics is readily another means of making easy money. There was a popular terminology….”let’s share the cake”.

All what you need to do is “do or die” to get appointed or elected. And pronto! You’re swimming in money.

All these are changing with the new political reality on the ground. No more free money flowing anywhere.

We would now begin to see, building of long lasting structures for sustainable development.

“Rumble In The Jungle”

Jungle! That is what Nigeria was made to become when everything became nosedived. All……..morality, economy, nationalism, integrity etc

The issue became…. who dare to ask question?. It was the era of the untouchables.
But the reality of life is, there is a beginning and there is an ending to all things. Even life!

Power is transient. Those that misuse it must surely face the repercussion.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
