Count Your Blessings

A friend nudged me in the direction of this post and I’m sure you’ll find it interesting. However, for those that don’t believe in God or His goodness, this piece is not for you. I make no apologies either but still urge you to read because I’m sure it’ll make sense by the time you’re done. Monini thank you for …

Halfway Mark

This is the seventh month and my very first piece. I didn’t really have anything to write and I’m making it up as I go along. Several things are going through my mind and there’s no focus yet. Please bear with me as I ramble and hopefully make sense by the time I’ve written six hundred words. The start of …

Confessions of a Secretary

A job no matter how ‘easy’ it looks (from your perspective anyway) has its own difficulties. Like we’re prone to say now, we all face different ‘challenges’ that are work related. Those that don’t understand this can sometimes talk derogatorily about what others do. Spouting statements like, ‘it can’t be that difficult, I’m sure even I can do that,’ and …

Fuelling Electricity

I can’t recall the last time I entered a petrol station for the sole purpose of buying the product to power a generator. In fact it’s been so long that trying to remember how I managed to maintain my small ‘I better pass’ is practically impossible. I know that my tiger gen was kept out front and the kegs with …

The Apprentice

The title brings to mind the popular series hosted by the Donald himself (a.k.a. Donald Trump).

So I decided to look through some things I’d jotted down and saw one that looked promising. The only thing was that I’m not quite sure …

My Harley Davidson Fantasy

I’ve always pictured myself wearing leather (black obviously) and riding a hefty Harley Davidson. For me that was the ultimate fantasy. Riding the Harley… not the leather part, although it seems the two are co-joined. Well all the movies back then had the bad guys that rode them wearing leather jackets at least. Yes, you guessed it this was centuries …

The New Toy

I can’t recall having a doll when growing up. I remember books, lots of them but a doll or something that resembles it…not so much. What brought this on? I hear you ask. Well I saw a cute little girl, running with a stuffed object clutched tightly in one hand. She was loathe to let go and was obviously quite …

I don port o!

The telecommunications market in Nigeria has witnessed a lot of developments over the years. The most recent was introduced around three weeks ago by the NCC. The chance to move from your current service provider without changing your number! For many people it was like the answer to their prayers and for some it didn’t make any difference. The service …

Nigeria’s Centenary Celebrations

Early this year I was reminded that the nation state called Nigeria would be 100years. I say reminded because it actually wasn’t in my consciousness and I know for some reading this you wonder how this could be. Well I became ‘aware’ and so the seed was sown. On the other hand I’m sure all the current primary and secondary …
