Nigerian Celebrities unite for Peace for Our Nigeria project

Over 30 Nigerian celebrities from Nollywood, Sports, Kannywood and the entertainment industry have come together to preach peace across the country.
Operating under the aegis of Voice of Change Foundation of Nigeria, VCFN, the celebrities which include Emeka Ike, Ahmed Bala, Jerry Amilo, Coach Stephen Keshi, Celestine Babayaro, said they decided to come together to preach the gospel of peace as it has become more necessary now than ever before.
The National Public Relations Officer of the group, Steph Nora-Okere, in a press statement on Sunday said the country faces the possibility of disintegration if the message of peace is not taken to all nooks and cranny and things quickly put in their proper perspective in the country.
The statement reads: "Every great country had passed through its moment of political, economic and religious tensions and had survived. The troubles our Nigeria is going through now with ethnic violence, militancy and most recently the high restiveness in the Northern part of the country and with threat of disintegration, requires that things are quickly put in their right perspective."
According to Nora-Okere, as celebrities, they have a lot to contribute to the peace building effort of government at all levels, stressing that the movement was not aligned to any party or individuals but was committed to bringing their talents and leverage to help the country through this difficult moment especially before the 2015 elections.
"Amidst the various endowments of Nigeria is the abundance of talents in the areas of sports, entertainment and Nollywood. This we intend to deploy for the good of our country. As much as we dream of a Nigeria where there is peaceful co-existence, unity, prosperity and good governance, it will only remain a dream if no one rises to the occasion to say No to the probable disintegration of our country, no to political violence, no ethnic and religious bigotry.
"We want to bring about unity in our country, thereby restoring the dreams of our forebears for evil thrives only when good people do nothing," the statement said.
She added that as part of the peace building mission, the foundation would hold series of concerts and programmes in every part of the country in the coming weeks.

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.

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.
