Design, Build, Monetize Blog Online Course with Jenny Chisom: Enroll Now

Blogging for 10 years now, has been one of the turning points of my life. Leaving home at 27, learning blogging at 29 and starting a business was my 'escape' from mundane living.

God in his Mercy, sustained me through the journey of self and building resilience to follow my path in life... I have come of age. Looking back, I see things I wished someone taught me to make my blogging journey easy... From growing my blog, from baby steps to a phenomenal business empire and still working on it...




I know the pains. The travails.  The disappointments. The late nights.  The health challenges.  And the brokeness that comes from trying to figure out how to run a successful online business using a blog platform.

NEWS: FG to scrap NECO and UTME

Federal Government has concluded arrangements to scrap the National Examination Council. Plans have also been concluded to cancel the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination being conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board for applicants into the nation’s tertiary institutions.
JAMB will however not be scrapped.
The government’s decisions, which would be made public soon via a White Paper, are based on the recommendations of the Stephen Oronsaye-led Presidential Committee on the Rationalisation and Restructuring of Federal Government Parastatals, Commissions and Agencies.
A government source said that upon receipt of the latest report, President Goodluck Jonathan has been meeting with Vice-President Namadi Sambo and a few top government officials to take final decisions on it.
It was in one of such meetings held on Tuesday that the final decision was taken.
Under the new arrangement, the source said in place of UTME, authorities of all tertiary institutions would now be at liberty to conduct their entrance examinations as they had been doing for post-UTME.
JAMB will however serve as a clearing house.
More after the cut

 
“JAMB will now be a clearing house like Universities and Colleges Admissions Service in the UK. If somebody gains admission into three universities and holds down space, immediately such person picks his first choice, JAMB’s system will automatically free the remaining two slots for other applicants.
“JAMB will no longer conduct examinations but it will be setting the standard alongside the schools authorities,” the source said.
UCAS, which was  established in 1993, is the British admission service for students applying to university and college, including post-16 education as of 2012. UCAS is primarily funded by students who pay a fee when they apply and a capitation fee from universities for each student they accept.
On NECO, the source said in arriving at the decision to scrap the examination body, the committee took into cognizance its huge facilities across the country.
But it was resolved that the West African Examination Council would absorb NECO’s members of staff and its facilities.
WAEC will also be empowered to conduct two Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations per year, one in January and the other probably in December.
Hitherto, only one November/December SSCE Examination is being conducted.
The May/June Senior Secondary Certificate Examination being organised by the examination body once in a year still stands.
The government source also said arrangements had been concluded to scrap the Public Complaint Commission, the National Poverty Eradication Programme and the Institute of Peace and Conflict Resolution among others.

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.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
