Olanike Adebayo's prescription of a New Nigeria

I look forward to a Nigeria that honours women and gives them their real dues.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women are not only celebrated as domestic goddesses(which is great) but as intellectuals.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women are not seen as personal property to be owned but free moral beings that can own land and possessions as they desire.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women are not blamed for the failure of marriages especially when the man is the perpetrator of the break-ups.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women are accorded equal rights as men professionally and socially.
I look forward to a Nigeria where a woman can stand in at the police station for a bail.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women are not under-utilised politically and economically.

I look forward to a Nigeria that learns one or two things from the igbo tribe as far as their women breaking the glass ceilings are concerned.
I look forward to a Nigeria where the likes of Prof Okeke- the UNN professor of Physics and UNESCO laureate winner, Professor Dora Akunyili who brought sanity to the drug and pharmaceutical industry,Dr Obiageli Ezekwisili- the former Vice president of the world bank, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala- the minister for finance and former world bank director are celebrated the more.

I look forward to a Nigeria where the above-named women and more are used as role models for younger females thereby destroying the cultural prejudices against women.
I look forward to a Nigeria where women can contest and win on merit as local government chairperson(not man-not exclusive to the males), governor and president of the country.
I look forward to a Nigeria where half of the population-women- are not locked away and brain-washed into believing that certain arenas are beyond their capacities.
I look forward to a new Nigeria.
A Nigeria where I am no longer judged by my tribal accent,ethnic background and gender I was created as.
I look forward to a new Nigeria...

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
