Faulty Foundations & The Flighty





When I saw this on Instagram yesterday morning I was speechless. I still am... I dunno guys, please share your thoughts. 

Are his village people dancing shoki with his destiny or is this the act of a forthright young man? Read below. 


"Just as a house that was built on a faulty foundation will surely collapse, it is also certain that a career that is built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse. All through my secondary school days, I was just a church ‘goer’, without genuine salvation and the fear of God. As a result, I got my WASSCE result through examination malpractice.

By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which called for repentance and restitution.

Sir, with deep conviction, I have  realised that there is no point building my academic career on a faulty foundation; since the WASSCE result I got through malpractice is the basis in which my admission into this university was anchored.

Therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the university and start all over again."

  3. oh, God bless him! and I pray he finds a path that is truly built on God's foundations.

    I understand his actions. It is not my place to say if it's the RIGHT action, because I believe he's acting as the Spirit leads.

    I was once in church, and a gentleman came before the whole congregation on bended knees to admit that he obtained fraudulent qualifications. And I think he wrote to the body to cancel his certificate or resigned from his job or something like that.

    I also know of another gentleman who lied about his age to get into University, but went back to the University after graduating to "confess"/right his wrongs.

    These two people went about it the way they deemed the most fit, and so also, this young man here is following his conscience. I cannot fault that. It is better to own Common Entrance qualification with peace of mind than to hold a PhD that stabs your conscience in the dark of the night.

  4. Same here, was also speechless.

    Just a thought...if I were the DVC, I'd write to WAEC to re-examine him on the required entry subjects for his desired course at a time that is convenient for him and WAEC. I don't think his withdrawal from the university would greatly serve the interests of any stakeholder here. His penitence should be acknowledged and rewarded without a harsh punishment as withdrawal.

    PS: I think there are more *agreeable* ways of handling scenarios like this. This approach seems to be quite extreme.

  5. I applaud his courage!!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ
    We are different... His conscience, peace of mind and salvation obviously matters to him a lot. In a world where morals and doing the right thing has gone into oblivion... Little wonder why his would be strange.

  6. I think someone lacks pragmatism...

    I don't understand how this is laudable.

    Why is waec exam result your validity for intelligence?

    The fact that your 'formal education' is your ONLY(wonder why) road map to a 'triumphant future' hence you can pride yourself in deferring 3years to make a point is just utterly ridiculous.

    You only live once, three years gone is three years you can't take back from your life span. You will not even be in this world in 100years From Now, none of us will, so who are we priding ourselves with on a deferment of a serious academic pursuit because of a single exam 3or 4years prior?

    How about the other exams you have been writing and passing since year 1?

    Those exams have to be the unfortunate ones, so you wasted their time and their respective quests to validate your intelligence yeah?

    Bottom line, this is just another ill-thought decision based upon religious grounds, simply.

      That's the Point isn't it? Some people are ready to sacrifice the gains they made through falsehood to please no one but GOD. It's not about his career, his wasted 3 years or his audience. It's about making GOD smile.

    2. Yeah Memphis. And it's not really abt aw fast, Dar 3years cud still be wasted if say he finishes & doesn't get a job.

    3. please don't take this personally, Uyi, please don't. But this reasoning right here is why countries like Nigeria are messed up. People believe they can acquire things the wrong way today, repent tomorrow, and live happily on the proceeds of their wrongful acquisition.In my opinion, I see this no different as armed robbery or kidnapping. People do scandalous things to make it "big", and then later conveniently remember to change their ways (only pending ofcourse when the next irresistible opportunity comes their way again, and then they can indulge, and repent again). but really, who is fooling who?

    4. I totally get the point to be all righteous, but seriously?
      Even after deferring, who is still fooling who?
      Someone with a third class will get a job that you with First Class won't get. You have 3years head start and you think an ssce exam will suddenly make everything feel right in this world?
      Please.

      I'm just being pragmatic about it. Nothing more

    5. Oga Memphis, "Some people are ready to sacrifice the gains they made through falsehood to please no one but GOD."

      There are so many ways to please and displease God, choosing what ways to please God wouldn't make you any less of a sinner than your next door neighbor. You have sinned, so you think when you defer your admission then you have 'unsinned'?
      Spare me.

      You commit adultery, do you go back to the opposite sex to undo it?

      You know what, I spied in class during exam, now that's a sin. I guess we all have to go back and rewrite those exams because my seating partner made me pass the exams.
      Maybe someone would come now and say he or she didn't spy in any formal validation of intelligence.

    6. "...There are so many ways to please and displease God, choosing what ways to please God wouldn't make you any less of a sinner than your next door neighbor...".

      EEZ DAT RIGHT? Lol. Funny. And I thought pleasing GOD was all about gaining salvation. So from these words "wouldn't make you any less of a sinner than you next door neighbor", I'm wondering why you get angry at *neighbors* like PDP, kidnappers, rapist, boko haram, peadophiles, etc, since, according to you right now, we're all the same.

      Yes, many ways to please GOD. You spied in exam (lol). Good for you, GOD forgives you. You've moved on from that. But when you see someone coming forward to request that he carry over a course because his grade wasn't a true reflection of his ability, I honestly don't see why such a person should be mocked seeing as it's one of the many ways to please GOD. Question now is, do you think GOD will fault his action?

  7. Hmmmmmm
    I won't judge him but in his shoes, I wouldn't go this route.

  8. I dont know what to say to this guy. If he was my friend Ill laugh at him all day then slap shit out of him. This is not smart at all. This has nothing to do with the Bible reference of faulty foundation. But then....this can be some sort of spiritual leading. Who know?? Peace

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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 entrรฉe comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrรฉe 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).
