I feel like screaming on top of my lungs today….and I really mean it. I am in the middle of recruiting promoters, for a brand campaign, and it is appalling that young people, have a hard time expressing themselves clearly. What are we doing? I have chatted with 10 young people and they couldn’t express themselves in English. For instance, I asked a young man (23 -25years) what he was engaged in, since leaving school and, his response was ‘NOTHING’. I wanted to scream at him “What do you mean by Nothing?” How can you be living within a vaccum? My colleague who noticed my expression, stopped me in time from committing a huge blunder.
Mr. President….what are you doing if you cannot move the nation forward? It is so appalling that you travelled to Saudi Arabia for an opening ceremony of a world class university, while your educational institutions are rotting and have degenerated.
What is so appalling about our situation is that, the situation is not resticted to the Nigerian youth but adults as well. I see so many people living in a vaccum on a daily basis. It is so frustrating. Phew…I am so speechless and I am thinking of how I can turn this situation around. It’s no wonder why most young people have adopted street language as an acceptable form of communication to replace English Language. So much for 7 point Agenda and 2020 vision or whatever.
This is wishing my muslim sisters and brothers “Ramaddan Kareem”.
Hey, don’t go thinking I know all the answers cos I don’t. I am actually trying to discover what everyone is investing in amidst the global financial crisis. I spoke with a friend of mine yesterday and she suggested real estate. My grouse with buying land in Nigeria is the issue of “Omo o nile” and attendant dubious charges. I would rather buy a detached three bedroom bungalow, within the range of N5mn – N6mn (which is dependent on whether I can access mortgage facilties), located in Lagos. Since I don’t have such huge funds right now, I have to think of something else.
For the past one month, I have been trying to scout for other alternative investment options (long-term), and someone had suggested ARM Investment. Please note that I did not include the link to the website. I’d rather not cos from my own point of view, either they are yet to engage the services of a social media strategist, or someone is simply not doing their job. I filled in the forms a month ago and I am yet to be contacted by a Wealth Advisor. What is the essence of setting up a website if there’s no one capable of attending to visitor’s enquiries. I also tried calling the numbers stated on the websites and unfortunately, none seems to be working.
My question today is: If you have some funds sitting idle in your savings account, where would you invest it?
I do not know where to begin but I guess i’ll start. My laptop’s symantec subscription expired some few weeks back and I had saved all my passwords on my Norton account to safeguard sites I regularly visit from hackers. For the past three weeks, I have been trying to recover my password to this blog unsuccessfully. Today, I had to change my password to gain access and I can’t say how glad I am to be back on the blogging scene. Thanks to all who dropped one comment or the other (hey, this is a special shout out to F), I will respond to all questions as soon as possible.
So much has happened in the past one month within this country, and I begin to wonder where I will start from. However, I am not going to talk about the banking crisis or banking tsunami (according to the Nigerian media), neither am I going to talk about the ongoing ASUU strike. A lot has been said about these issues and I’d rather observe where this is all going to end. One resolution I adopted while away on vacation is the need to be a more positive thinker, dare to do the impossible and take a conscious stand on the kind of people I want in public offices. Enough is enough! We need to take our destiny into our hands if this country is to move forward. I have had it with mediocrity. Phew….
