Just Turn The Page Over


Some of you all just got to turn the pages of your life over to realize that there’s more to your book than the page you been stuck on all these years; You got to close the chapter of hurts, you got to close this chapter of disappointments and move on to a new chapter where you get the opportunity to start all over again; A bad chapter doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful story. God is not through with you yet. Just because the road seems rocky doesn’t mean it won’t lead you to a beautiful place! Don’t hold on to your history at the expense of your destiny; Don’t try to fix what’s been broken in your past, let your future create something better. It’s time to get your life’s worth, its time to get what your life deserves and move on from the things that don’t deserve you. Every new day is a gift to start all over; You got to take advantage of your today; Today is the tomorrow you talked about yesterday; So stop being afraid to move on, Stop been afraid to make progress with your life. You weren’t supposed to get hurt! Yes I know! but it happened! All you got to do right now is turn that page over; I know you lost your job, that’s so sad but listen you got to pick yourself up and turn that page over, I know you messed up your life, but honey your life is not over, you still got to turn the page over!!! You cannot let your scars scare you from having a future; You cannot let your pains stop you from moving forward…..It might be easy to stay bitter, but staying bitter does nothing but hold you back! Its not over until you win!

Dealing With Hurt

People may have disappointed you, betrayed your trust, hurt you badly, break your heart and even make you question yourself…..But you must learn to accept the fact, that some people may never fully come to understand how much damage they may have caused you or others close to you by reason of their actions or inaction; as such you don’t have to stay damaged, hurt and in pain. There are times when we must accept that people are exactly who you hoped they wouldn’t be…Yes I know, you may have been hurt so badly by their actions, Yes I know, that sometimes its not what happened that hurts the most, but rather its who did it that breaks you, but you still don’t have to stay broken. The best revenge is being whole again. Its time to let go of the hurts and pain, its time to free your heart of the bitterness and anger you feel. Its time to be you all over again; Being hurt, offended or angry doesn’t give you an excuse to become the person you were not meant to be; You don’t have to let an emotion change your character..You don’t have to be the person who keeps a grudge against someone else regardless of how much hurt they may have done; you got to be smart!!…. you got to learn to let go… Letting go is freeing your self from bitterness and pain, Letting go is choosing not to let the hurt define your character, Letting go is refusing to let the negativity steal your joy. Life is too short to be intentionally unhappy; Decide today to be happy, Decide today to free yourself from the hurts! Your life can be better!

Education In Nigeria

Education in Nigeria

Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.
Education in Nigeria is overseen by the Ministry of Education. And the local authorities take responsibility for implementing policy for state-controlled public education and state schools at a regional level. The education system is divided into Kindergarten, primary education, secondary education and tertiary education.
The Universal Basic Education, UBE, came as a replacement for Nigeria’s Universal Primary Education.UBE system is 6-3-3-4 .The UBE involves six years in primary school, three years in junior secondary school,three years in senior secondary school, and four years in tertiary institution.
The importance of education to human beings cannot be overemphasized. Globally, education is considered as a human right that should be accorded to all human beings, in facts it was the reason why a lot of international human right bodies consider education as a fundamental human right.Education is critical to the development of countries. Most of the first world countries are technologically advanced, and they owe their breakthrough and successes in the field of science and technology to robust and functional educational systems. Think of Japan and China, USA and Germany – these are developed economies. Their automobile and electrical products find markets in Nigeria and other African countries. They earn much revenue by exporting their products and goods to other countries, which boosts their economies. Their thriving economies are driven by both the implementation of prudent economic policies and technological innovations evolved by their citizens. But technological breakthroughs and inventions are achieved by students where the educational systems are virile and functional.Here in Nigeria, mechanical engineers can’t repair their cars, not to talk of manufacturing simple tools. The economy is solely based on crude oil revenues. The nation’s inability to diversify the economy is intrinsically linked to its dysfunctional education system.
Problems facing Nigeria Education is that of responsibility and control, the conflict between the Federal, State and Local Government in the management of education at various level. Take for example, the control of primary education is neither fully in the hand of federal government, nor state or local government this a great barrier for effective educational development at basic level.
In Nigeria today, one should not be talking of unavailable teachers but instability. The unstable condition of teaching staff in Nigerian primary and secondary schools has drastically crippled the system. The question is why instability? the answer is that, the condition of service does not favour them to stay in the profession as such looking always for alternative.Another problem of Education in Nigerian schools today is the politicization of Education; which seriously affected the development of education. Today many educational institutions are opened and run in many states on political ground or other flimsy reasons. In Nigerian schools today admission in universities, colleges, polytechnics, monotechnics, secondary and primary schools are sometimes guided by politicians not academic performance. Parent today used their political offices or influences for the education of their children. A sensitive issue that crippled the development of education is the manner and the why the politician influence the recruitment exercise of teachers. Many people today are after securing job for their children just to have meal ticket not bothering whether their wards qualified or not. This has contributed to recruitment of many unqualified teachers in our schools.
Another problem facing Nigeria education is government’s budgetary allocation to education falls short of the UN stipulation. Due to paucity of funds, lecturers can’t access fund to carry out researches. Educational problems can’t be addressed when there is little money for running the sector. Some state-owned universities are utterly neglected and grossly under-funded. These institutions are better described as “glorified secondary schools”. Are their libraries well-stocked with the most recent books in diverse fields of study? Do they have enough lecture-halls that can hold students during lecture periods? Do they have teaching facilities, instructional materials and equipment for running some science-based courses? These are issues that impede the smooth transmission of knowledge from lecturers to students. Acquisition of knowledge by students can’t take place in schools where there is a dearth of facilities.

This is a critical issue, let us have your opinion on how to make our education one of the best in the world.

Must Read

Bill Gates gave a Commencement speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1:
Life is not fair – get used to it!

Rule 2:
The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3:
You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4:
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5:
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6:
If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes; learn from them.

Rule 7:
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8:
Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9:
Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10:
Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11:
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

Everybody is A Genius

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Seek out and capitalise on your strenght(s)

Reclaim Your Life

Staying positive isn’t being naive, it’s believing that things will get better in spite of your present challenges; Failures and disappointments should change your approach, not break your spirit… sometimes in life you must learn to take the wins along with the losses; The losses are meant to teach us where we are vulnerable so that we become better equipped to win the next time. You need to stop grieving over what could have been and start taking hold of what is now!…. You can’t keep holding on to yesterday and access the promises of today. No one can go back into the past and start a new beginning, but anyone can decided to take advantage of today and make a new ending. There is greatness in this moment, you need to have the courage it takes to find it; The faith it takes to sow it; and the strength it takes to wait for your harvest. Stop feeling like your life is over; Stop feeling like your life is at a dead end; Stop feeling like your life isn’t worth it. It’s time to get back your life’s worth, its time to get back that dream hard times stole from you; It’s time to get back the “FAITH” regrets stole from you; It’s time to reclaim your life. Victory is for those who never stop believing. Its not over until you win!

Now Is The Time

Now is the time to make that change you always desired; Now is the time to put that great potential of yours to work; Now is the time to impact the world around you for good; Now is the time to leave your foot prints on the sands of time; Now is that very time to do and be all that you have been empowered to be. There’s is no better day to be great than today, there is no better time to leave your mark than now; Most times in life, our biggest regrets are usually not for the things we did…but, for the things we know we could have done but failed to do; the love we know we could have shown to others but failed to show, the smiles we know we could have left on the faces of the ones that crossed our path, but didn’t make it happen. Don’t let your lack of action cause you to live in regrets. Its time to make your life count. You got to stop letting fear hold you back, its time to step out in boldness and be the solution the world needs; Don’t let tomorrow hold you back, tomorrow is not always guaranteed! You got to make today count; Why wait to act tomorrow when you have today; You don’t have until tomorrow to become that person you have always wanted to be; Your Greatest Moment is Now! Your best time is Now! Take advantage of today. The world can actually be a better place because of you.

Believe In Yourself

Dear friend, its time to set aside preconceived notions about who you are; Each of us is free to reinvent ourselves as often as we would like. Regardless of the negative things people may have said about you and made you believe about yourself, you still got to believe in yourself rather than the weak opinions of others. Your life won’t change until you give it permission to change, your life won’t become better until you decide to let it become better; you must determine in your heart not to listen to the voices of self-limitation and fear as they whisper to you, there are possibilities available to you beyond what you can conceive; don’t give up on your dreams, because you have been told it cannot become a reality; Don’t shut down your dreams before you even give them a chance of becoming the reality you have always thought about; Don’t shut down your dreams because you do not know how to make it become the reality you always hoped for. I know there may be questions in your heart; But when we hold questions in our hearts, we are always bound to find the answers. Its time to bring your dream into focus and eventually to manifest your dream. Don’t give up on yourself! The best of you is yet to come!

You Can Win This Fight

When life beats you up and knocks you down; you can either throw in the towel and give up on your dreams or you can wipe the sweat off your face, stay in the ring and keep fighting until victory comes! I know sometimes it feels as though the challenges of life keeps pushing you down, I know sometimes it feels as though the road you are treading seems so up the hill and all your efforts keeps leading you no where, I know sometimes it feels as though your life is like a race of pointless laps where quitting seems fitting for your situation. In-spite of however you may feel, I want you to know that “you can win this fight” An obstacle is just an opportunity to show your strength! Everybody has a struggle, don’t let yours hold you down; Every struggle you overcome will always shape you into a better person; You will never get stronger if all you ever do is quit every time it gets harder!. You can never be successful if all you ever do is run away from your challenges! Life doesn’t always get easier…. we just get stronger!! Never lose faith, Even your worst days are preparing you for your best days! Don’t give up, hold on! Stay Strong! Its not over until you win. The choice to be great will always be yours!
