Much Ado About Nothing- Motilola Adekunle








The problem with this society is that we place too much value on superficial things. What's in a certificate? Some of us are acting like it supersedes all that you are and ever will be, well I'm not surprised, take the "pali " away from the average Nigerian graduate and he has no other skills, nothing to survive on, just an empty barrel n that's Why Buhari needs a certificate to govern us, he doesn't even have to be honest just give me a certificate and it automatically qualifys him to lead??
What about strength of character? What about intelligence, or do you think it's impossible to be intelligent without education? Besides the man has excelled at something, he is a General, a military man, good or bad, he stands for something, that is the strength of character.

He has called the bluff of several " big shots " over time, he has proven himself.

Even If he has a daughter that wears a million dollar outfit, he didn't steal the money to fend for her. So rumor has it that he goofed as PTF guy, bring me a saint please. I will pick a man, who has the strength of character than one who is easily swayed, I will pick a man who won't wait until a sector of the economy is ruined before he sacks the minister, I will pick a man who won't visit wounded soldiers as a show off over the one who thinks they are a campaign strategy. I have not seen Mrs Buhari speak at all not to mention her embarrassing the nation as a matter of fact after the first lady we have had, wouldn't you rather a silent one??

Religion is the Opium of the people, Karl Marx says and he was right. Buhari wants to islamize Nigeria and the red lights come on in our heads, and they start praying against him. Dear brothers in the Lord, If we have prayed this much, droves of people won't have been in their early graves. If changing religion will stop this meaningless deaths isn't it about time?

Asari dares to threaten us, If his brother does not win blah blah blah... Dear Mr Dokunbo, the price of crude oil all over the world has fallen, the nation is facing a huge crisis. So that power you think you are sitting on is a one legged stool...look around you... The nation is doomed to fail If we don't diversify, your brother and his sister, at the helm of affairs are not doing anything, this time If we don't do something fast...there will be no creeks to return to.

Mr President it is with joy and gladness that I write this piece to you, please let Mr Buhari try it out, you have failed to satisfy me and Mama Peace isn't helping. You didn't even deliver on your fresh air promise, Generators are still working 24 hours.

Let me Peg it here, this opinion is absolutely mine.

  2. I care for the competency and integrity of the next president and his team. I don't care their race, ethnicity or faith. As long as he doesn't worship the devil. I don't care if he's an agnostic or atheist. As long as he's humane, empathetic and compassionate. I don't care if the 50 competent people we need are from the same family. Just do your job. I am asking for the impossible, aren't I?

    1. Nope, vote me for presidency. I'd do what your request and even more. Hehehehe, (see me already sounding like a politician).

      I feel Nigeria still has a long way to go in getting the 'right' president. The whites remark that 'a people get the leader they deserve' which is largely true in the African setting. Someone (I believe it was Prof. Pat Utomi) once made an insightful remark that the first class graduates end up working for the best companies, the second class graduates either work for other companies or start up their thriving businesses, the third class end up doing anything to survive while the drop-outs and uneducated end up running for politics and controlling the environment in which the society thrives.

      This is largely true in the Nigerian case study, hence requisite values like competence, integrity, value of his/her people and others do not converge on his plane of thought.

      Let's hope someday, the elite, social media activist, humanitarians, employees and employers, etc would one day be able to make forceful demands that would see the elected governing the country the way it can be and should be. Or perhaps, these set of peoples can one day run for these 'exalted' offices and prove that Nigeria can be the giant of the world, scratch that Africa.

  3. Lol,Nig have watched too many foreign film. Their blood is boiling for "action"
    Did Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandi go the violent route to preach change? Did they contest presidential elections in their respective countries to bring change?
    Is GEJ responsible for the fall in oil prices?
    Now that Mohammed Abacha's son has defected from PDP to APC,why didn't APC reject him? Is this the "change" they mean? Loolz!!

    1. So if I'm abacha's son that makes me a sinner right? Please what's Ur point here?
      That watching too many foreign films blinds u from the truth? that nothing is working in the present administration after 6years? Or it is not the president's fault that thousands if Nigerians are dying on a daily basis while the president is engaging in rallies for another term? Or maybe it would be when everyone citizen's live is lost DAT he wud realize his failings?

      Please how do u explain the public show of money laundering and yet nothing is being done abt it? Nobody is being penalized or tried in the court of law.

      Are u really in support of this? I don't understand Ur problem with MR Buhari, to be honest.

      You talk abt ghandi and martin Luther like they were some movie heroes...these are men DAT died for their values and principles.

      Billions if people recognized Nelson Mandela's death as a great loss. I'm suru you know how old he was when he became SA presidnt. And you think he never had his own flaws? Do u think he was the second coming of Jesus Christ? Plz judge pole by their principles and values. And to me I haven't seen any value or principle guiding that clueless president of urs... He's just as confused as a man who had won a 250million dollar lottery out of sheer good luck... Oh that's even his name.

  4. Fact is the change we seek does not belong to any of these two people, but since they are the most popular, they seem to our 2 options, we just have to choose the lesser of 2 evils. I wish Nigerians could come together and not vote for either APC or PDP, let them know the power is in our hands (at least once every 4years)

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
