A Credible Word

A few days ago, my brother and friend Bashiru Oyahkilome Adamu posted an endorsement on his page about me and many other and I was screaming to myself saying: “This man wants to put me in trouble” (good trouble, of course)… Next I know, I started getting all sorts of friendship request from people I…

City of Refuge

20 years less a month back, precisely February 2000, I escaped to the city of JOS, Nigeria from the onslaught that was going on in Kaduna then. It was a religious crisis, I was a victim, needing help and this was the only place one could enter and be safe as a Christian during the…

True Witness

Most people who ask questions are more interested in how the answers provide the benefits they need. Very few people actually ask questions about other people’s benefit.

Understanding Times

The wild dreams of the young are needed for the future they would superintend over; yet the powers to exercise themselves towards it are not available to them except given…

Diamond in the Rough

I entered a taxi in Ibadan today and this driver has the appearance of someone you would deacribe as ‘street’ – bruises and marks from old fight wounds…he is the stereotype of an ‘area boy’ he should not care about how anyone feels. To my surprise, he has such warm personality that he responded to…

Trials in Transit

Exactly two years ago, I was on my way to Lagos to book a venue for our yearly HOPE Conference that normally happens in February each year. I did not plan to travel that morning…I just wanted to enjoy my holiday a little bit more; but I was lrompted in my spirit to travel to…
