We are looking into repositioning Nigeria's formal education as a step toward economic empowerment. With nearly three decades of experience in the manufacturing sector, I've gained some insight into Nigeria's education system, and the picture isn't promising. Students are completing their education but are not financially empowered. They are unable to attract the appropriate types and levels of jobs, and as a result, the country's economy is in shamblesRead More
After the abolition of slave trade in 1833 by the then British Empire, Freetown in Sierra-Leone (West coast of Africa) was acquired for the settlement of the liberated Africans. Some of the liberated Africans became converted Christians and educated in the formal school system in Freetown. Back home in Europe there were great revival of missionary movement in Britain.

A ministry in the sense of this paper is seen as service to God and to other people in Jesus name. Jesus provided a pattern for Christian ministry – He came, not to receive service but to give it. “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matt 20:28) He demonstrated the example in John 13:1-17, specifically in verse 15 & 16 he gave an order “For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.”Read More
The divine construct and engine through which the Church is meant to run and operate smoothly is that of empowerment. Evidences abound in the gospel that the Church of Christ cannot function either in matter of doctrine and ministerial work or service without a divine enablement or empowerment. The matter of empowerment is so fundamental and non-negotiable that even Christ Jesus, the very foundation of the Church, had to be empowered with the Holy Spirit’s Power before starting his ministryRead More
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Lao Tzu
When things are done on one s account, it can be so easy and stress free, but there comes a time (especially the youthful age) when you no longer want it the easy way and would prefer being shown what to do and how to go about it.
Is that ease lost? Yes.
Is it more demanding? Yes.
but then, you get to take ownership of your actions which in itself gives a sense of fulfilment.
 Lao Tzu is the founder of Taoism and a Chinese philosopherRead More

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge the world has faced since World War Two. Since its emergence in Wuhan, China late last 2019, the virus has spread to every continent except Antarctica. Cases are rising daily in Africa the Americas, and Europe. In Nigeria, the first recorded case was late February 2020 and the infection has been growing exponentially. As at May 30, 2020 Nigeria had officially confirmed 10,0162 cases.

The pandemic has created devastating social, economic, and political crises that will leave deep scars.Read More
When Babylon’s soldiers marched out of Jerusalem in 586 BC, they left a desolate city behind them. Its magnificent temple, built by Solomon four hundred years earlier, was reduced to heaps of fallen masonry and charred timber. The city’s gates and all its important buildings were enveloped in flames, and its strong walls demolished to ensure that the impoverished citizens could not organize another revolt such as the one recently attempted by the hapless Zedekiah. Only the poorest of Jerusalem’s people were left behind, the rest were led off as captives to distance BabylonRead More
God has representatives in all generations; the ambassadors to save, deliver and bring people to the Promised Land. The times are indeed challenging and there have been changes in people s beliefs, values, socio-economic and political patterns; immorality and ungodliness are on the increase. Today, we live in a world where many things seem to have changed and are still changing from the ideals, spiritual truths and moral values which were once delivered to us. Individualism, modernism, extremist ideologies and so on are on the rise. The “God-factor” is now gradually being played down in all spheres of our societyRead More
In its simplest form, Contemporaneity as a term entails the whole idea of making the ancient look modern and may be, acceptable or more acceptable through deliberate or inadvertent modifications to conform to the albeit undefined but perceived standard, trend, vogue or culture of modernity. The idea of contemporanizing, in the first instance, stems from an intrinsic value judgment or mere belief that places the modern or new view or practice on a higher pedestal than the ancient or former. This judgment, especially when it comes to matter of faithRead More

It is often said that politics exists where two or more people come together to achieve a goal. This is because inherent in every man is his desire to influence another man, positively or negatively. On this basis, Aristotle opined that man is a political animalRead More
