Nigerian Army: Boko Haram Strategy Now is Poisoning of Water Source



The Nigerian Army today raised alarm via a press release that the extremist Boko Haram sect has now resorted to poisoning water sources as a new war strategy following severe defeats it had suffered in the hands of Nigerian army troops. Read the Press Statement below:


Press statement from the Nigerian Army:

Information reaching the Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole indicates that Boko Haram terrorists have now resorted to poisoning water sources like wells and streams in areas they were dislodged by gallant troops or areas threatened by offensive operations. The latest being the poisoning of the cattle water ponds in Kangallam village along Marte and Abadam axis in Borno State where a large number of cattle died after drinking water from the ponds. 

Credible information available to the Theatre Command indicates that though no human life was lost as a result of the barbaric act of the terrorists, however, some cattle were killed after drinking water from some poisoned sources.

The action of the terrorists is no doubt aimed at taking their own pound of flesh on the innocent citizens and livestock as a result of the unbearable offensive operations through the combined effort of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force to route them out completely from their enclaves and hide-outs all over the North East. In view of this development citizens are called upon to avoid as much as possible drinking water from unverified sources especially in locations that troops routed out Boko Haram terrorists. You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium. 

Thank you for your usual cooperation.

THE EXCELLENCY IN DONATION AND IMPACT

Image result for donation



Dr. Isaac Newton will forever be remembered by successive generations as an exemplary man of success. The world was launched onto the path of scientific revolution when Newton proffered solution to the important question of nature and ‘established the law of gravity which has since set the pace for the progress made so far in the science of Kinetics (motion), mechanics, transportation and basically all areas of technological advancement.
The time he expended in bequeathing those lasting legacy to humanity is what makes his memory a blessing in the world today.
Many lived before him, many has come and gone after him who were not remembered because it is not how long but how well that matters.

Success in life does not answer to the consumers, it answers to the contributors or donors. Even God in the holy book, the bible, gives seed for further multiplication and expansion to the Sower not to the eater. (Isaiah 55:10b).
Men that registered their names in the sand of time and in the hall of fame and of success in life are those that invested their lives in serving their generation, gave what they had for humanity, ministered to the needs of their people, sacrificed their lives for  independence of nations and died for the course of the truth.

Friends, until you contribute to the world, the world will not contribute to your success.

The measure of Life’s success is not in Duration but in donation, so get up today and make an impact before your time on earth expires; wipe the tears from someone else’s face, reach out to those in needs, encourage the dejected, care for the prisoners and the motherless, pay the school fees of poor children. As much as you can, be a solution to other people’s problem, your contributions and donations to people will eventually pay you or your children. Live a life of Impact and legacy. Shalom! See you at The Top!

Musings on Prayer

Image result for prayer

Pray...
Prayer is a heart to heart communication with God.
It's a loving expression between humanity and Trinity.
It's the heart of man crying out to God in fellowship.
God deserves your first hour of the day in prayer.
Who takes the first hour of your day?
Television?  Your phone? Your employer?
Let it be God...

Jesus the Son of God didn't need to pray because he was God.
But in order to succeed on this earth, prayer is an indispensable tool!
Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo once noted that the praying Jesus is the supremest argument for prayer.
So why won't you pray today?

There cannot be transformation without prayer, motivation notwithstanding!
There cannot be a sustainable rise in destiny without the habit of prayer.
The place of prayer is the place where spiritual energy is generated.
A Christian who doesn't pray only end up as a prey with time.
Spiritual authority is earned and sharpened at the place of prayer...
Remember,  whatever you allow on earth is allowed in heaven!
Prayer is the key...it's time to wield your authority in the place of prayer!
Wouldn't you start spending at least an hour in prayer with the Lord?


Yours' in Motivation,
Eagle.

MOTIVATION TODAY... STOIC VS EPICUREAN PHILOSOPHY!

Image result for stoic vs. Epicurean philosophy

Welcome to a new day!
Just as you have been preserved to see this brand new day...
Responsibility is laid on you to make the best of all it carries especially the minutes and hours therein.
One of the few things that constitute a successful lifestyle is Personal Philosophy.
What you know and what you do with what you know goes a long way to affect the overall quality of your life.
The difference between success and failure boils down to whether we are stoic or epicurean in our approach to life.

The Stoic philosophy talks about being a later person, emphasizing the power of delayed gratification!
While the Epicurean philosophy is about being a now person, it embodies the trick of instant gratification.
An ancient writer once remarked; ' A nation is born stoic and dies epicurean!'
So insightful. So is a great destiny, a great enterprise and a great business!

Dear reader, which of these two philosophies does your life represent?
Are you a stoic or are you an epicurean?
But if outstanding success is yours, I dare you to toughen up, be a stoic!
Deny yourself of certain legitimate pleasures today and reap the harvest of more pleasures tomorrow.
Remember, many people want a good life but not everyone is willing to be stoic!
I see you succeeding in rapid successions this season.
Your best days are still ahead of you, refuse to take your greatness to the cemetery!
Have a crisis free weekend.


Yours in Unlimited flight!
