Let's Make Nigeria a better place


Recently, I began a messaging process on Facebook and WhatsApp with the primary objective of changing the way we think as Nigerians before we can make any meaningful progress and realise our full potential in different sectors. If we are able to reach the hearts of Nigerians in a well-co-ordinated worldwide positive messaging effort, there is every likelihood that it will influence the way we think and behave.

Even the Holy Book tells us in the Book of Proverbs that, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is”. Every good or bad idea starts from the mind. Interestingly, I have been following similar posts on Facebook. One of them shows a striking photograph of a cat and a dog in a friendly pose, and the poser was: “If a cat and a dog can become friends, why not Nigerians?”

"ASHA OLU NNOBI" 2017 Festival Kickstarts Today In Anambra state

In the pristine town of Nnobi in Anambra, the "Asha Olu Nnobi" festival rolled up.
An informant explained that the festival started at about 7a.m, with masquerades holding whips, ready to flog madness out of any defaulter. LOL.
You must be wondering what the festival is all about dear reader, but here it comes.
Our informant says it's about the new yam festival. The biggest part is that the King gets to parade the town with his entourage. It's fun, but more dangerous.
The festival ends on Saturday.

Man stabs self, plunges into well in Kano

Tragedy struck in Kano on Tuesday as a 49-year-old man, Balarabe Adamu, reportedly stabbed himself before plunging into a well in the Rijiya Zaki quarters of the Ugogo Local Government Area of the state.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the victim’s neighbours raised the alarm and alerted officials of the state fire service to the incident.
The Director of the Kano State Fire Service, Alhaji Rilwan Mustapha, said as soon as the nearest fire station was alerted, a rescue team was deployed in the scene of the incident at about 5pm.
He explained that Adamu was recovered from the well and rushed to the Murtala Muhammed Specialists Hospital, where he was confirmed died.
He advised members of the public to put their trust in God, rather than commit suicide.
As of the time of filing this report, it could not be established what informed the decision of Adamu to commit suicide.
In another development, the state fire service on Wednesday said no fewer than 167 lives were saved, while goods worth N100m were salvaged from 22 fire incidents in the state in August.
Mustapha said nine lives were lost during the incident, urging members of the public to always be careful when using electrical appliances. He added that storing of petrol in houses and shops should be avoided.

THE LAND OF THE "UNDO PEOPLE".

There is a small island in Indonesia called Sumbra. On the Eastern Coast of this island, there is an area called the TANJUNG UNDU, which in English (paraphrased) means, "THE LAND OF THE UNDO PEOPLE." Due to an atmospheric anomaly, and the way the rotation of the earth affeects that part of the world, the people of this region have been gifted with a GENETIC UNDO FUNCTION that allows them to quickly and easily take back the last thing they have said without knowing that it was ever said: A husband speaks harshly to his wife; no harm done, hjust use the Undo Function. Two neighbours gossip about what the pastor's wife was wearing on sunday; no sin committed; just use the Undo Function. A word is spoken in anger between two life-long friends; no relationship broken, just use the Undo Function. I wish i were living in this part of the world. Perhaps, Truth is, people will offend you from time to time! While there is a place called "Tanjung Undu" on the East Coast of Sumbra, in reality, the people who live there struggle with the problems their world create, just as we do. And as nice as it might be to have an Undo Function to correct the things we have said and done, odds are likely that scientists will develop this in our life time.

REALLY HILARIOUS!!

There is a book titled, "365 STUPIDEST THINGS EVER SAID" and the unbelievable nate below is from that book:
"If you bought our course, ' how to fly in six easy lessons,'" we apologize for any inconvenience caused by our failure to include the last chapter, 'how to land your plane safely?' Send us your name and address and we will send you the last chapter post haste."

Is that not incredible? Can you imagine a student pilot taking off in a plane without knowing how to land it? All i can see is his or her bitter obituary swallowed up by tears shed like a river current by those left behind (REGRETS). LOL.
