Women Empowerment Is Illusionary - Emeka Nobis

I just read that my friend Emeka Nobis will be speaking at the Women in Leadership Conference and if you are in Lagos, you need to atend.

He is sharing on something so close to my mind and the reason I am committed to advocating for male Empowerment.

Because Men are not the enemies of women and the clamour for women empowerment with a mindset of 'men are evil' is really counter-productive and I believe really  an illusion like Emeka Said.


Read how he announced it here.

Women empowerment is illusionary!
What is there to empower?
To me, the power already lies in all of us - male and female.
To me, the issues are two fold - culture and religion.
When I was growing up, parents flogged a male child that came second in class to a female. Quite ironically, parents whose female children came first in class rejoiced even when they had male children.
Isn't it hypocritical of us to have male and female children and then assign some as superior?
Any wonder that the man is groomed to see the female as beneath so much so that the female needs permission to excel and shine?
Coming to religion, did He not make them male and female? When he did so, did he tell the man to put the woman underneath and trample? A rib from his side, what does that mean?
People, without a systematic understanding of the Pauline epistles, latch onto such scriptural verses and mouth segregation in the house of God. They take Apostle Paul as their godfather while others on the other side of the divide see him as a chauvinistic idiot without regards for women.
I'll be sharing my thoughts at the WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Conference, Lagos.

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.
