Image result for the law of attraction in nigeria

The Law of Attraction states that whatever you give consistent thought to, you will create. The Universe is attraction based and we get what we think about. And once you have given great thought to something with great emotion and then expect it to come, it will. Your thoughts are powerful magnets and you will get what you consistently think about whether you want it or not.

The best way to use the Law of Attraction is to realize that you will get exactly what you give your greatest amount of thought too.
Everything that you are living right now you attracted into your life the good the bad and the ugly. Most people do not like to hear this. I didn't like hearing it.
But once you understand the Law of Attraction and learn how to use it to your benefit you will be able to think the thoughts that will help you to live the life that you desire and no longer will you attract the bad and ugly things into your life experience.
So, if you truly believe that everything will work out, then it will. If you believe you will get sick, then you will call sickness into your life.
If you believe that you will be wealthy, then you will have the money that you desire. If you believe that you will be poor, then it will be hard for you to attract riches into your life.

There is a huge difference between the way a rich person and a poor person thinks.
Think of a person that you know that is struggling and constantly complaining about how broke they are. Have you seen any changes in their financial status?
Think of any successful person that you know, let’s say for example Bill Gates, the guy that help to create Microsoft. Do you think that he walked around saying how broke he is and that he will never have money?
No, he had to have been very confident in his skill to attract money in order to be the success that he is today.
Some of the most successful people in the world believe and practice the Law of Attraction for example Oprah Winfrey, one of the most successful women in the world.

Let our young boys marry, Ex-Military Governor pleads with Igbo parents to reduce bride price

Former Military governor of old Anambra State, Col. Robert Akonobi (rtd), has pleaded with Igbo parents to reduce the bride PRICE of their daughters so that ‘’our young boys can marry them.”

Speaking recently at the industrial city of Nnewi, Anambra State during the traditional wedding ceremony of the daughter of a business mogul, Chief Louis Onwugbenu, Onyinye and her husband, Bosah Chukwuogo, Col. Akonobi said:
‘’To me, this topic (bride price) has been dealt with in the past by Ndigbo, who came out with a reduced bride price, to enable our young boys marry our young girls.”
Akonobi also cautioned that men should study their proposed wives closely and longer before engaging into marriage because “once you marry, no one else can put it asunder.” Nnewi was agog as dignitaries from all works of life trooped to the residence of Chief Onwugbenu for the memorable event. The dignitaries who were from both the military, political and manufacturing circles, including Col Akonobi, Hon. Clement Nwankwu, former member of the House of Representatives; Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of Gabros International Limited and Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Limited, Chief Gabriel and Innocent Chukwuma respectively, among others.
The issue of high bride price was discussed extensively at the occasion. Hon. Nwankwu, in his own speech, prayed that Chief Onwugbenu and his wife would live long to enjoy the fruits of their children, especially those who married from outside their areas.

Driver dies on steering wheel inside bus in Lagos

Ojodu Berger Motor Park

There was confusion at the Ojodu Berger Motor Park area of Lagos on Wednesday after drivers and passengers found a commercial driver dead inside his bus.
Acccording to Punch, the deceased, only known by a nickname, Big Daddy, had slept overnight inside the bus, only to be found dead on Wednesday.

MEMBER of the executive of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, who declined to be named, said the driver might have been killed by depression resulting from a debt burden.
He said, “It is not the first time that commercial drivers would sleep overnight in their buses in this park, especially those who come from distant places like Ikorodu, Lagos Island and so on. Big Daddy plied daily between the Ojodu Berger and Oshodi areas.
“When he finished work at about 10pm, he complained that he was feeling very weak. He bought a bag of sachet water and emptied them on his body. It was just this morning that I was called on the phone that he died inside his bus.
“The only thing I know is that he had a debt on his neck. He was paying back the money he borrowed to purchase the bus in installments. The bus recently developed faults. His wife and only son, Sunday, stay in Ikorodu, and have been informed about his death.”

A driver in the park, who gave his name simply as Babatunde, added that the radio which the deceased was listening to still blared when he was found dead.
He said, “We switched off the radio. I have never seen such a strange death. His first wife died about nine months ago, and he recently remarried. He died while sleeping on the steering. He was wearing only his underwear. He was a gentleman. It was shocking he died suddenly like that.”

Image result for COMPOUND EFFECT

The most challenging aspect of the compound effect is that you have to keep working on a particular thing over a long period of time. A little saved from time to time with consistency leads to great wealth. While a little spent from time to time with consistency leads to great waste.

 The future you wake up into the next 5,10 and 20 years is a function of just one thing:it is the compound effect of choices ,discipline and preparation and diligence taken from now.

The compound law is always working ,whether to your benefit or demerit. Its a universal law. In order not to be a victim of this law,you must be deliberate in the application of this law to specific areas of your life starting from today. Take charge of your day!

DIG Solomon Arase replaces Suleiman Abba  as Inspector General of Police

 THE Inspector-General of Police, Mr Suleiman Abba, yesterday, became the first major 
casualty of the just concluded general elections, which President Goodluck Jonathan and 
his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, lost to the opposition.
The police officer, who was elevated to the post only last year, incurred the wrath of the 
Presidency on the eve of the governorship and House of Assembly elections for allegedly 
arguing with the government officials over the directive to recall the Assistant Inspector-General
 of Police in Charge of Zone 6, Tunde Ogunshakin, from Rivers State.

Abba, it was learnt, had deployed Ogunshakin from his base in Calabar to Port Harcourt to oversee the governorship election in Rivers State following complaints by Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, that the police had collaborated with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the PDP to intimidate APC members and rig the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.
His refusal to pick calls over Ogunshakin’s recall
Another source said the former police boss reportedly ignored presidency official’s objection to the deployment of Ogunshakin to Rivers State on the allegation that the police officer was sympathetic to Amaechi and his party and would, therefore, not allow the PDP win the state.

A Presidency source told Vanguard that on learning that the IG had defied its
 order by redeploying Ogunshakin to Rivers State to supervise the governorship 
elections. A presidency official called the former police boss to recall the AIG with
 immediate effect from Rivers State or face the consequences.
The source said the presidency felt slighted when it could not get through to Abba.
The former police boss reportedly told the Presidency that AIG Ogunshakin was a
 formidable Police officer whom he described as a ‘no-nonsense officer’ feared and
 respected in the Police Force hierarchy and capable of ensuring law and order in the
 place of new assignment.
Vanguard reports that although the sacked IG reluctantly recalled Ogunshakin from 
Rivers State, forcing him to quit Port Harcourt by 5 am on the election day, Presidency 
did not forgive Abba for redeploying Ogunshakin reluctantly.

Presence at Buhari’s certificate of return presentation:
Another sin of the former IG was his presence at the presentation of the Certificate of Return to Muhammadu Buhari at the International Conference Centre on April 1, 2015, which convinced the Presidency that the IG was actually working for the opposition and it moved quickly against him.
Arase replaces Abba
The Senior Special Adviser to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, could not also be reached for comments on the development.
Abba’s sack was announced by the president’s spokesman, Reuben Abati, in a statement yesterday. No reason was given for the sack while a Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, was appointed to act in his stead.

Abati’s statement read in full: “President Goodluck Jonathan has relieved the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, of his appointment and duties with immediate effect.
“President Jonathan has also appointed Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, as Acting Inspector-General of Police, also with immediate effect.
“Until his appointment as Mr. Abba’s replacement, Mr. Arase was the Head of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department.
“Mr. Arase holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Law, as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees in Political Science and Strategic Studies.
“He is also a Fellow of the Nigerian Defence College.”

Mr. Abba, 56, became acting Inspector General on August 1, 2014 following the retirement of his predecessor, Mohammed Abubakar, after 35 years of public service.
He was confirmed substantive IGP on November 4, 2014.
Abba was, until that appointment, an Assistant Inspector General, AIG, in charge of Zone 7 Command, a position he occupied since May 25, 2012. He was also an Aide-De-Camp, ADC, to the wife of a former military Head of State, Maryam Abacha.
With his removal, Mr. Abba will proceed on forced retirement, four years before he attains retirement age.
He enlisted in the Nigeria Police as Cadet Inspector on December 31, 1984 and is actually due for retirement on March 22, 2019.

Xenophobia: Over 500,000 to loose their Source of income if MTN leaves Nigeria

MTN Nigeria on Monday threatened that over 6,000 direct employee will loose their jobs and over 500,000 will lose their means of livelihood. if they are forced out of Nigeria. 

According to the Corporate Service Executive, MTN Nigeria, Mr. Wale Goodluck, who addresed the media after a two groups of protesters in Abuja and Benin converged in front of MTN against killing of foreigners in its home country, South Africa,  

"There are only 12 expatriates working for the company in the country, compared to a workforce of 6,000 Nigerians.

“So, if people go ahead with their threats to attack our facilities, what that means is that we may be forced to close down the business in Nigeria and about 6,000 Nigerians that make up 99 per cent of our workforce will be unemployed.

“Then, when you look at our support chain, we have about 500,000 Nigerians gainfully employed. So, boycotting our services simply means destroying so many other Nigerian businesses and making over 500,000 other Nigerians to lose their jobs.

“This business supports a lot of businesses across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Many of the businesses that are affiliated to South Africa are in the retail space, supporting the growth of Nigeria and employing so many Nigerians.”

“We see no revenge of Xenophobia and we commend the role the Nigerian High Commissioner in South Africa has played; at least there has been no fatality on the part of any Nigerian,”

"The Voice of him that cries in the wilderness,
Saying, prepare the way of the Lord..." Isaiah 40:3
The above Scripture is the mission statement of a

John was a voice and not an echo...
You are destined to be a generational voice never a

Are we all Meant to Be Married? Find out...

Image result for marriage

For some time now, I’ve been ruminating over why so many single people are pressured about marriage in the church community.  Most churches are quick to deny this. They say; “No one is pressuring you, it’s okay to be single and serve God…” and other patronising statements like that but every time special programs are organised for singles, the theme will always revolve around relationships, dating and marriage.

Look, we have single people and we have married people. Not everyone is meant to be married. I believe that there is no such thing as a healthy church until we bring back God’s call to singleness inside the church.
We won’t glorify God completely unless we have a vibrant single’s community. And I’m not talking about a “meet other singles and network for dating opportunity” kind of single’s fellowship most churches have.
I’m talking about real singles.  People that authentically believe they are called and are willing to forgo the pleasures of marriage and enjoyment of sexuality, because they have committed their lives to the cause of the gospel, and they believe what God has to offer them is bigger than what the world offers in this area.

Marriage is also a high calling. For those who are called to be married, it’s a calling to show the world, the beautiful picture of the relationship between Christ and his church.  So, both marriage and singleness are high callings. And together, we paint an accurate picture of God.
However, it’s so sad that in most Nigerian churches today, single people are treated like they have a problem. Married people are celebrated and are somehow ranked “higher” or considered “more matured” than single people. That’s why in some congregations, a single person cannot Pastor or be an Elder, and single’s fellowships are all about “how to find a husband/wife”.

Some churches even go to great lengths to match-make single members of the congregation and in some places, when you’re a lady or gentleman above thirty and unmarried, everyone gives you this patronising look and its written plainly on their faces that they think something is wrong with you.
Most of the problem is because we have a culture that thinks if you’re not married, you’re not happy. (As if everyone who is married is happy, and everyday it’s all candyfloss and rainbows)
I happen to believe there is a beautiful call to singleness, and while I know that there are loads of single people who desire to be married, I also know that in the desire to be married, most are missing the privilege of being single now.

No one has the right to determine your marital status. Not even you. Your job is to walk with God and let him determine your marital status.
Some of us are called to be married; some of us are called to be single. But with one purpose; to display the glory of God and to fulfil his purpose on earth.
In my opinion, we focus too much on marriage and relationships. Yes it’s important, but it’s temporary. The time is short. Look at these verses:
1 Corinthians 7: 29 – 35 (NLT)
29 But let me say this, dear brothers and sisters: The time that remains is very short. So from now on, those with wives should not focus only on their marriage. 30 Those who weep or who rejoice or who buy things should not be absorbed by their weeping or their joy or their possessions. 31 Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them. For this world as we know it will soon pass away.
32 I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord’s work and thinking how to please him. 33 But a married man has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. 34 His interests are divided. In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your benefit, not to place restrictions on you. I want you to do whatever will help you serve the Lord best, with as few distractions as possible.
