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.
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.
Never hold on to something you cannot change. Look forward to a new excitement. No one can hold the hand of clock.

Talking about grass. When you enter the raining season. Your grass must be green and fresh. Just hold on.
No matter how stony the road or curved the path. The journey’s end will be fulfilling. Keep hope alive.
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.
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’.
Starting small and gradually is the most ideal way of getting into something new.

How do you relate with success?
Do you cherish it
Or despise it?
Do you like it or you don’t?
When you see successful people, do you
Envy them or you get motivated?
Numerous questions and many more to
Keep asking yourself.
Because, in asking these questions,
You will find answers that will teleguide
Your stride in life.
I believe that success is good and
We all aspire to be successful
In our different endeavour.
So that others will emulate to be likewise.
Success is an attraction, so sweet
Like sugar that everything flows towards.

The biggest national flag standing torn to shred.
Lot of times I pity our leaders. They work very hard to achieve little. Their insincerity is so glaring but yet they themselves could not see it. The situation has gone beyond being pathetic to comedy. You just need to keep smiling to maintain your sanity.
The economy of Nigeria is like a man who dig a bohe-hole in his compound. He open the tap to distribute water when he likes and if he doesn’t like your face, he lock his tap.
A system full of distraction and without genuine focus can never be a progressive system. It is like running within circle and proceeding to nowhere. Collective desire is just of mouth and not of the heart. It’s about what comes to us, not what we can build together. Could this takes us to promised land? May be, may be not.
What can we say of a nation among the top seven of the biggest oil producing nation and yet cannot boast of one refinery working. Good road across the length and breath of the country is unthinkable. Uninterupted electricity, hhaaaa. No go area. Now if a particular political party has been in place of leadership for close to two decades and these infrastructure are not in place! Is it not high time we try new hand for a change?. It’s no brainer to provide all these things.
It takes a man that determine to make the difference, to nationally turn things around. Many of those who find themselve saddled with leadership never prepared for it. That’s why it is trial and error all the way and that’s why we are where we are today. Left behind by our contemporaries; Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil and so many others.
