“A Step At A Time”

President Muhammadu Buhari decked like the ‘boys on the block’.

Tell any Nigeria of your online presense, the question comes speedily ‘are you making money? ‘
I can’t recount how many times I have to answer that if it’s money that’s the motivation, ponzi scheme is at the door knocking.

Don’t blame Nigerians, we always think it’s all about money, so people are ready to do anything to get to that money. They  don’t understand that knowledge has to be sought to get direction. The value chain had been broken long ago from the time of our ‘maradonic’ self styled military President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. The author of “use what you have to get what you want”. This breeded all manner of irregularities and shortcuts in the system, persisting from one government or the other after him till the man he overthrew returned  to power through ballot.

The system over time made many to be seeker of what to eat. “what is it in there for me? ” not what is it that I need to contribute?. The attitude enumerated above made us redundant and lazy with almost every one young and old hanging on the  government. The people  that supposed to be asset to government were liabilities that the government can no longer afford.

We are greatly endowed. We must tap into building our human resources and this is the right time. The new government should continue in the path earmarked.  Anybody who want to cry wolf can go ahead to display their stupidity.

“Writing 101, Day Three:Commit to a Writing Prectice”

All my life, I am a musical freak and the kind of music I hear are in different genre and my mood determine what I listened to per time. I like wide variety of music. So it will be too limiting for me just mentioning three. To be honest! I wouldn’t know what precisely to pick. Be that as it may, I will settle for twist but still write about music in my life.

No hold barred? Cool with me though it may happen that some stupid mistake will show up. Please bear with me. Am trying to follow the rule to let loose. Let’s get historical, I can’t know precisely when I came up to know what music is, but I just grew up into it . Not because I came from that background but I know my grandfather was a man that sing leisurely. Being quite close to him, I just had to pick the trait.

I took after him in that area till date. In the days of LP Records before cassette tapes , children of my ages gather everywhere there is barber’s shop because that time the barbers also sell records. I remember I only have to listen to new releases once or twice before having up my head and continue to sings the whole LP. This earned me a nickname called “tatalo si gbegiri anan” means add fresh pepper to yesterday beans soup. Let’s respect the rule, 15 minutes up.

Happy blogging challenge.
