David had a date with a new and seemingly insurmountable problem. Goliath was the world champ.David talked about his victories over a lion and a bear.He was testifying in religious parlance and using the Halo effect in psychology.Halo Effect is the tendency for an impression created in one area to influence opinion in another area.
It was originally coined by American Psychologist, Edward Thorndike to refer to people but now it has been extended to business too especially brand marketing.
Once you have excel in a particular area of life endeavor, people tend to assume and believe you would excel in other areas of life.Success in one area gives you confidence to pursue success in other areas. So you can’t afford to be nonchalant in that project of yours.Do not give up.Count your blessings.Get involve..Let the Halo Effect work for you..
Have a great day…
Lets talk



We have talked about the fact that this year is special.Its a leap year…A year to rise and accelerate.We were challenged to get our 4G network ready..God,Goggle,Go i.e Act and Great friends.
We were also challenge to look before we leap..I want to believe we are leaping already..The next lesson i will be talking about will be Learning…
To have a meaningful Leap,you must learn….The bedrock of any learning is the art and act of questioning.Never cease to ask questions…
“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One
cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates
the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous
structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely
to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.
Never lose a holy curiosity.”
Albert Einstein
US (German-born) physicist (1879 – 1955)

Carriers seeks Collaboration

PERSONS with Sickle Cell Disorder (SCD)
across the country have stressed the need
for collaborative efforts to break the cycle of
the health disorder, which has jeopardised
the future of many great and promising
persons across the world.
Gathering in Abuja to mark the SCD global
day, the carriers called on Nigerians to
joined hands and fight the yet incurable but
preventable disorder.
One of the carriers and founder of Shirley
Hills Foundation, Shirley Hills, said that Africa,
and particularly Nigeria, suffers more from
the condition.
Hills, who is also the convener of the event,
stressed: “As you may know, the world, the
black race and the Africa continent has
suffered the more from this disorder, with
the future of so many great and promising
children and individuals jeopardised as
result of avoidable actions.
“Being an incurable but preventable disease,
it is high time we joined hands more
strongly to break the sickle cell cycle. Rare
diseases like SCD often don’t get the
attention they deserve.
“Statistics show that 95 per cent of rare
diseases don’t have a single FDA-approved
drug treatment – there are only 400
treatments approved to treat some 7,000
rare diseases believed to be affecting people
“It’s clearly enough to say that with more
awareness and education, this cause can
get the much-needed attention it deserves.”
She disclosed that her foundation has
launched a new initiative called RedBlood
Crescents Afrique to mark the World Sickle
Cell Day 2015, and that the initiative would
further promote awareness and advocacy
for the prevention, management and control
of SCD in Africa as well as provide support
and succour to carriers of the trait and
sufferers through counselling, treatment,
awareness outreaches and research.

For the love of language.


For the sake of the butterflies that flit;
For the honor the ruminants give the grass by grazing-
I return.
Writing poetry is the forehead of the elephant
Too heavy for the little one with constant review.
Only that language is the extension of our lives-
Like the detached tail of a gecko wriggling,
The tail of the squirrel that critics cannot trim;
The itch of a mosquito bite in the space between
the little toe
And the 4th toe,
Impossible to fulfil.
O voice which questions,
Here is my repartee.

About: I have been reading people’s works and experiencing poetry. I’m not sure if it helps. Does confidence in one’s ability to use language deftly ever come? In the meantime,  I write…

The great inventor Charles Kettering suggests that we learn to fail intelligently.He said”Once you’ve failed,analyze thr probelm and find out why,because each failure is one more step leading up to the cathedral of success.The only time you dont want to fail is the last time you try. So,its time to try once again.Its not time to give up on trying.Yes you have sat for numerous UTMEs/why not/try it once again.Is yours,getting a lot of big NOs from Job interviews.Dont give up.Its time to apply one more time or you believe strongly,she is meant for you but all you get from her is a big NO while not try the last. Here are three suggestion for turning failure into Success: (1) Honestly face defeatDont live a lie or fake Success. (2) Exploit the failure.That is learn from it.(3) Never use failure as an excuse not to try again.We may not be ever able to reclaim the loss,undo the damage or smoothen the crooked path but we can surely make a new Start.SUCCESS IS FAILURE TURNED INSIDE OUT

Tribalism Is Like Biting Your Father’s Genitals: Dokubo and Other Tribalists By Peregrino Brimah

The heading of this piece may read strange,
but some of the parties it primarily refers to
will know its source. The original quote is,
“He who calls for `Asabiyyah (nationalism/
tribalism) is as if he bit his father’s genitals.”
Also, “He is not one us who calls for
`Asabiyyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who
fights for `Asabiyyah or who dies for
`Asabiyyah.” “One of us,” here means, “a
Muslim,” these quotes, being Hadith of the
prophet of Islam (p).
There is no denying the disdain for tribalism
by the prophet of Islam. In other narrations,
of fighting for tribalism he said to “leave it, it
is rotten.” Again he is narrated to have said,
“…Behold, Allah (God) has removed from you
the arrogance of the Time of Jahiliyyah
(Ignorance) with its boast of ancestral
glories. Man is but an Allah (God)-fearing
believer or an unfortunate sinner. All people
are the children of Adam, and Adam was
created out of dust.” More references can be
found on Zawaj website ( http://
Mujahid Asari Dokubo claims to be a Muslim,
but according to these narrations, not only
he, but all other northerners and other
Nigerians, who clamor for and prescribe
tribal based fire and blood regardless of the
interest of the nation’s masses, simply for
the best and most decent, progressive and
non-corrupt leadership, are “not Muslims,”
and are rotten people who are so low, they
nibble and bite to chew their parents
A Muslim will never fight for tribalism or
nationalism. It is one people and one world,
all made from dust. All that separates people
is their fear of God and their good and Godly
The New Testament likewise does not favor
tribalism. “There is neither Jew nor Greek,
slave nor free, male nor female, for you are
all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ,
then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs
according to the promise.” (Galatians
Many of us pray for and seek a day and a
world without borders and without
indigenship and ethnic regulations for
leadership. A world where a Kenyan man’s
son can become president of America, the
world’s most powerful nation (That day has
come already in America, but the reverse
obtains today in political Nigeria).
The concept of tribalism is very foreign to
Africa. Many great writers have penned and
typed articles on this fact. When we look
back at our ancestors, the one thing that
defined pre-colonial Africa is the integration
not only of citizens but of leaders too.
King Jaja of Opobo, Jubo Jubogha was an
Igbo man from Orlu, who was assimilated
into and became leader of Ijaw Opobo in
Rivers/Akwa Ibom.
General Murtala Mohammed’s father Pam
Iyatus from Vom in Plateau state was a
Berom man, who assimilated into Hausa
Kano and Murtala is recognized today as a
Hausa hero, over his Berom ancestry.
Malam Umaru Altine was a northern Fulani
man who was the first elected as the Mayor
of Enugu; he was again re-elected to serve a
second term.
There are tons more examples.
Indeed in pre-colonial Africa, all it took was
to migrate into a new territory and prove
your diligence and character to be fully
accepted, acculturated and be eligible not
only for ethnic citizenship but even to lead
the nations.
We have Nigerian origin Yoruba chiefs in
Ghana, Sierra Leonean politicians and chiefs
in Nigeria, Nigerian top government officials
in far away The Gambia and so on.
What is happening to Nigeria now as a few
of us are so embroiled in dirty, filial genital
cannibalistic tribalism is un-African and will
actually make our ancestors turn in their
graves. Those of us who wear tribal regalia
and claim tribal loyalty would actually be
discarded by our for-fathers as illegitimate
offspring of their great hospitable and
progressive legacies.
It must be added that there is a space for
ethnocentrism. However this is only useful
as regards competing with the positive
achievements of those who came before us,
to do better than their records; not in
tribalism feats, defaming and disgracing
what they valued and promoting what they
In an earlier article, “The Devil Was the First
Ethnocentric,” I presented how by refusing
to bow for Adam, the devil was the first to
portray such shameful behavior, and is the
father of tribalism and ethnocentrism. The
devil had argued that he, made from fire
should not bow for Adam, made of “mere”
dirt. The devil was discarded into the pits of
hell for such repugnant behavior.
Nigeria’s empty political elite, the enemies of
the nation and the 168 million p
