“Weekly Photo Challenge:On The Move”

This picture taken at a bus terminal.

Aba is a commercial city of neighboring Abia state. I was a bit stressed up because it was raining heavily couple with the very bad road we were to go through to get back to Calabar.         The journey should ordianarily take less than three hours plus but took about five hours. The road is less than three hundred km. that cut across two states. Though it is Federal Government road. The total negligence by the federal and states authority to repair the road make life a bit difficult for traders/commuters and drivers alike who unfortunately ply this road everyday. Very ironical, a country so rich in oil but blessed with inexperienced leadership that does not have capacity to provide modern day infrastructure for its citizenry acros the board. It’s difficult to comprehend this.

“Back To Marina Resort”

image

Marina as it was then called is one of the points along the coaster region of this West African state called Nigeria where slaves were taken out on ships in a very harsh and deplorable condition. That is actually no news. Apart from the anchor that’s artistically errected here to signify the inhuman treatment, there are relics of slave trade activities such as chains, clamps and other metal objects used by the colonial slave traders who forced the natives to call them ‘master’. That mentality still persist till today. Whenever you hear people saying master, master. They are simply showcasing colonial menatality,(colo-mentality). The building behind the anchor actually housed those relics. The blog will be visiting the museum some other time. This place was where slaves captured from hinderland are ferried abroad. The Efik tribe lives by the coaster area. They were the people that received the missioneries. Their location gave them the priviledge of closeness to the new power and they eventually become the middlemen in slave trade activities. That was how they got prominent which is still being contested till date.

image

Because of its historical importance. The past government trasformed it to a leisure spot and that’s what it is till today. To save it from hoodlums who then used it as dead end for their nefarious activities. The top building was designed as ampi-theatre but now a standard indoor cinema and incidentally the only one in the city.

Other facilities include hotel, event hall, eatry and a ferry. A must visit for any tourist.

“22”

psychosomatically in love

A cute little door I stumbled upon while roaming the back streets of Zürich, Switzerland, with the right amount of wear and tear, or shabby chic if you like, at the bottom. I love the solid, well-proportioned stone frame and the pretty woodwork fitted inside of it, with the little window at the top to let more daylight into the hallway. Clever and thoughtful.

I did have the urge to ring and say hello and find out who lives behind such a cool door when they’re asking for it so nicely there (“Bitte läuten” means “Please ring”). But I didn’t, ’cause I know better. 🙂

“Obsolete Mast”

image

This mast was erected en-masse all over the country by P&T (Post And Telecommunication) in the ’70s. Along the line, the name changed to NITEL (Nigeria Telecommunication) It was the mast that facilitate telephone communication. So many decades after, the wireless, mobile and better telephoning system emmerged, the GSM. While some of todays leader who were there yesterday were busy telling us that telephone is not for everybody, some people in another part of the world were working on how to make telephone wireless, cheaper and affordable to all irrespective of class and age.

They never rest on their oars and today the coming of internet and technology has changed the level of communication completely. The system has gone beyond phone calling to granting the universe the platform for adding and exchanging value. Created by the great and productive minds. These minds are are problem solvers. Always working to make the world a better place.

This brought up the question why some countries are just good and why others are great?. The answer lies in the visionary commitment of leaders per time. Leadership is about service and when we begin to realise this and hold it dear to our heart most especially in Africa. We’ll begin to see tremendous and positive change in our developmental journey.

Marina Resort, Calabar. Nigeria.

The world was created with so many resemblance and differences. This part of the world does not share climate with
Europe, Canada, part of America and other cold region of the world but suprisinly OBUDU CATTLE RANCH like a pocket spot that it is on a very high mountain, has temprate climate with a very low degree. Just keep your finger crossed. I will soon be on fact finding travelogue to the ranch in no distant future. Now back to the moment, sub Sahara Africa generally experience raining season and dry season with heavy or slight harmattan.

image

Looking around now. I begin to see flowers blossoming. And coming out strongly and colorfully. Incidentally SPRING has no limit, as in it’s spread across the globe. For it’s a time for blossoming heralding summer time sunshine across Europe and other zones of the world blessed with four season. Reminding me of Donna Summer hit track of those days FOUR SEASON OF LOVE.

“When The Chips Are Down:Which Side Of The Coin?”

image

There is always more than one side to an issue or a story. So when the chips are down, which side of the coin is your take. On the day of roll call, where would you be found. Doing good or doing bad?

Since the creation of the world, human being has been endowed with the capacity to make choice of preference among alternatives. From day one, the good and the bad runs paralleled. It’s our individual choice to swing to specific side.

image

What is good is good and what is bad is bad. There is no middle point between the extremes. Internet is a platform where both tendencies are exihibited. If you ask me, the most desirable of the sides. I would tell you, the best side which is my preference is the good side. It’s our duty to make sure that whatever we do in reaching out must be for the benefit of the mankind. Let our name be counted among those that make possitive and lasting impact on the life of those we come across online and offline. Yoruba tribe of western part of Nigeria has this colorful adage that say “Oruko rere, o san ju wura ati fadaka lo”. Means good name is more precious than all the pprecious things of this world( gold, silver, questionable wealth etc). Moreover “Ojo melo la o lo laye, tan wewu irin?” How long would a person lives carrying unneccessary weight?.

Let’s be careful of what we do and how we live our life. The good thing is, when we pass on! People should be able to say ‘a great man\woman has pass by’.
