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…

Stories and Truth

There is this elderly woman I am always cautioning not to insert herself in every matter that is being discussed. It just sounds somehow that it is hard to have a discussion with people these days without a reference to their own life and person… Recently, I found myself evaluating certain things and unconsciously, I…

Shrouded Depths

There is a very hidden place in the hearts of men, only real experiences can reveal what is there. Until you permit those experiences to take place, however unsettled you are with them, you may never know these depths of people you associate with.

God and The Lowly

Thugs on the street and very ‘broke’ people have kept their words more than refined and buoyant folks. It seems for the former, all they have are their words, so it counts… Well, ironically, they share this trait with God, who exalts His words above His name. Who do you belong to? Thugs on the…

Transactional Faith

“The just shall live by his faith”, that is what the Bible says; coincidentally, it is also the theme of a summit in my church…yet I have not stopped wondering what kind of faith we have these days. Because this statement is true and the word of God is infallible, it means that each one…

Assessment of Things

I got a story sent to me today. When I finished reading it, I realised that beautiful things would always have another side to it. While something looks fantastic to some, it would look deplorable and less in value to some, especially those who had the privilege of experiencing a greater version of it elsewhere…
