Nigeria the Floating Giant

Nigeria will remain a Sick Giant as long as it is perpetually bedeviled and plagued by grotesque incompetent leaders suffering from historical amnesia.

We will continue to progress retrospectively with abysmal ridicule from lesser countries.

Nigeria can rise again and take her place if our demographic mediocrity and parochial loyalty to individuals in power is subordinated to true nationalism; consciously and conscientiously buried.

Nigeria is merely floating at the moment. The crop of officialdom we have are nothing but a Tsunami to this raped Nation.

Nigeria has everything required to lead Africa. We have the intellectuals, we have the wealth, we have great men and women with vision; but focused and visionary leadership has remained a challenge since independence. Ethnicity, religion, zoning and primitive partisanship has continued to hold us back.

Nigerian has lost her birth-right and big brother status. We pray our children in their own generation wakes up the sleeping giant.

Africa will raise again!

The Content Not The Container

WOW!! GREAT STORY !!!

A group of alumni (past students), highly established in their careers, agreed together to visit their old university Professor.
Conversations soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and brought a large pot of coffee with an assortment of cups. (porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite). Then, he told them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

“If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.
What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups.
They are just tools to hold and contain life. The type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.”

God “brews” the coffee, not the cups………. Enjoy your coffee!

MORAL TO BE LEARNT
“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.” Live simply and be generous. Care deeply. Speak truthfully and kindly, work hard. Be yourself. Be wise. Pray and leave the rest to GOD…. He is sufficient for us.
