Modern day Slavery


Waking up with thoughts of the lastest events unfolding around the globe. The most disturbing of all is the “Slave trade in Libya”. I see various fb posts, tweets, whatsapp updates as well as blog topics on the issue. No need telling the story again, it is all over social media.

Truth be told, every evil perpetrated is as a result of ‘Lack of love’. God was right by giving us a new commandment which according to the book of first John chapter 3 verse 23 says “….Love one another…”.


Starting from the family level, some parents show the greatest love towards the most brilliant child in d family, because they believe he/she is the star of the family.
In the marriage arena, love exists only at the initial stage of the marriage. But as soon as kids are involved, husbands and wives become housemates.

Moving to the learning environment, some teachers only show love to the rich and wealthy kids in school. Their belief is that on visiting days, the parents of those kids in return will enrich their pockets.

The Political arena: Politicians aim for leadership positions not for the sole purpose of serving the nation but to acquire money through bribery and corruption.

To crown it all, in the holiest place of all -house of God- people give to God because they want the blessings of God in return and not because they love God.


Love is paramount. Kids should be taught to love everyone irrespective of who they are or what they have. Recently I read a story about a Girl Child activist arrested in Lagos for enslaving a 10-year-old girl by subjecting the girl to untold hardship, beating and also denying her education. What a Irony!
Love should be preached and practised as well. Someone once told me that ‘Love is a commitment’ -that says it all. And that is why i am posting this with a 6% battery.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
I’d like to end with this question: When have you ever shown love without expecting anything in return?
P.S: Feel free to comment. Will be glad to read your comments.


My NYSC Experience pt II


Finally i was able to register the following day after being reminded of the bible verse that talks of the violent taking the kingdom of heaven by force. My kits(Khaki, jungle boots, white shorts and white round neck tops) were as usual oversize. Infact they could fit ‘two of me’. Since the next day was swearing in, i was left with no choice than to slimfit the khaki material at an extremely high price(#1500). I was crying bitterly on the inside. As the woman was sewing the khaki, it felt as if my flesh was being sewn. Anyways it was only manageable for the swearing in ceremony with my jungle boot of all sizes.


As for the swearing in ceremony, i was opportuned to listen from the health center because i was assisted by the red cross personnels from the parade ground to the clinic. Y’all understand. And Guess what i ended up crushing on one fine doctor. What a Blessing in Disguise! Please don’t judge me.
The following day SAED lectures commenced. The Era of everlasting sleep. Coman and see different sleeping positions. Chooiii no be mata of forming o. Even “bigger guys and ladies” slept recklessly after having one’s sweet morning sleep disturbed by the so called beagle.


All in all, SAED class was fun and educative. I signed up for the Decoration and event management class. I met a crazy comedian-MC Holy Mouth aka Dem go collect. He is extremely talented. I no dey crush o, make una take am easy.

Not forgetting, the entertaining social events at night during which most times our sexy camp commandant (Cc Sexy) danced or rapped for us. 99.5% of the female corpers were tripping for “Cc sexy” and they did all sorts to get his attention.
Finally, camp came to an end. What NYSC joined together, primary posting put asunder. But still friends were made, ties were knot, families were united and we departed to our various Ppas with joy.

N.B: To my two lovely NYSC besties turned destiny friends- Ayomikun and Fikayo, I love you dearly.

The Unending Preacher Man


Finally I’m back to the city of Lagos. I love travelling especially on sundays…that traffic-free highway feeling.
My lazy ass refused to go to church. I didn’t know God had secretly meted out my deserved punishment to me.

As usual, i boarded a bus from Oau campus gate(as i have been doing for the past uncountable years now). Without wasting my precious time, the bus was filled and the three hours journey began.
Within five of the journey, a man (directly behind me) said words of prayer to which everyone chroused ‘Amen’. We all thought that was going to be end,since this was the usual practice.

After the prayer session, the man further went on to imploy passengers to praise God and he said a statement i hate to reckon with “Let’s be in the mood of worship”. What!! Why else was i created? I was made to worship him. That’s who i am. Well, I’m starting to sound like a preacher myself. So, i quietly let that statement slid(as if i had a choice, sef). After about twenty minutes, the worship and praise session ended. I breathed a sigh of relief and silently munched the words “Thank you Father”.

Suddenly, i heard the voice like the sound of a mighty rushing wind. Lo and behold, it was our “Daddy in the Lord” preaching. Holy mother of mary!!! What I do? “Father, please let this cup pass over me…I repent of all my sins..i promise to always keep the Sabbath day holy” Nevertheless, God’s will had to be done.


The preaching continued alongside the journey. Thirty minutes passed…One hour went by, our ‘Daddy G.O’ was now in the spirit. He kept speaking the words endlessly and passionately with adorning bible verses…
Not long after, i developed headache not because of the unceasing preaching but because of the pitch and Timbre of his voice. Even the wife of our Daddy G.O was fast asleep.

Finally brethren, after an hour and thirty minutes, the conclusion of the church session was said and we said the grace literally. I felt like jumping. I could see the host of heaven congratulating me as I finished the race in good faith.

ZZZ -Zzzz-ZZzzz – hngGGggh -Ppbhww – zZZzzzZZ”
I turned around and behold Daddy G.O was fast asleep๐Ÿ˜ด and sonorously snoring….Truly, he is a witness of Christ even to the uttermost part of the earth๐ŸŒ. I jejely inserted my earpiece into my ears. God be praised!!!
