Who Are The Rich and Poor in Nigeria? - Social Class Better Explained

The past few weeks has seen me cross the Third Mainland bridge severally and I have come to the grand conclusion that two very different worlds exist at the opposite ends of Third Mainland bridge.
From the supercharged angry atmosphere soaked with sweat and impatience characteristic of the mainland to the tranquility and oyinboishness experienced at the Island, one can only be baffled at the disparity that exists.

After salivating at the structures and automobiles I have seen, I think it would be a great disservice if I don't properly classify our social class and enable people find out where they belong.

1. The Rich
     Examples: Dangote, Otedola, Oniru, Elegushi
This are the class of people allowed to call a Private Jet, a Toy. They are permitted to have hectares of land at Banana island and Eko Atlantic city. They have breakfast at Oriental Hotel, Lunch at Federal Palace Hotel and dinner at Eko Hotel. They are the worthy mentors of the youths. God specifically told me that this is where i'd be.

2. The Rich Middle Class
     Example: Oil Workers
This type of people are my best kind of people. They think they are Dangote. You see them with nice cars, starched white shirts and an air of importance. One good thing though is, when they are sacked or retired they have just enough to setup a business to rescue them from disaster.  (Continue Reading)

People Change

People change, But don't be afraid to be sweet. Don't be afraid to do good to all men.

People change, But don't be afraid to keep your tongue bridled. Don't be afraid to speak life.

people change, But don't be afraid to care. Don't be afraid to be emphatic. 

people change, But don't be afraid to trust. Don't be afraid to accomodate.

people change, But dont. be afraid to laugh. Don't be afraid to cry.

people change, But don't be afraid to love. Don't be afraid to be loved.

People change, But don't be afraid to remain you!

We are gods...

I hope you had a wonderful week. Just a little something to spice up your weekend. Do Enjoy!!

We are gods...
Whenever you go out-of-doors,
Draw the chin in,
Carry the crown of the head high,
And fill the lungs to the utmost;
Drink in the sunshine;
Greet your friends with a smile,
And put soul in every handclasp.
Do not fear being misunderstood
And do not waste a minute thinking about your enemies.
Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like to do;
And then, without veering off direction,
You will move straight to the goal.
Keep in mind on the great and splendid things you would like to do,
And then, as the days go gliding away,
You will find yourself unconsciously seizing opportunities
That is required for the fulfillment of your desire,
Just as the coral insect takes from the running tide the element it needs.
Picture in your mind the able, earnest, useful person you desire to be,
And the thought you hold is hourly transforming you into that particular individual.
... Thought is supreme.
Preserve a right mental attitude -
The attitude of courage, frankness and good cheer.
To think rightly is to create.
All things come through desire and every sincere prayer is answered.
We become like that on which our hearts are fixed.
Carry your chin in and the crown of your head high.
We are gods in the chrysalis.

It wouldn’t be courteous if I do not apologize for having not posted for a long while. I won’t be giving any excuses to my ardent readers and all who hung around.  I am truly sorry indeed.

Happy New Year!!!!!!, yeah, it is coming a little late, but better late than ever. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Just in case you think you did not, remember we weren’t greeted with Nigeria’s usual New Year’s gift of fuel price hike and/or scarcity. So you should reconsider. =)

On to the next one! Its election season and we have a choice to make. The Ph.D. vs. The Disciplined. I am well informed that we have a few other boxers in the ring, even a female. Now I believe my Further mathematics teacher in high school who used to say, ”You can’t afford to be comfortable with mediocrity, In this quiz, It’s the best versus others”. I am not saying they are the best, I’m saying if the others weren’t mediocre in campaigning and letting their voice out, we would have at least known their names like the back of our hands. So, I blame them for making us choose between Beans and Akara. (Continue Reading)
