Can The Men We Raise In Africa Truly Surrender To God?

We are done celebrating men specially yesterday as we marked the International Men's Day. I was on Radio with other Men and boys development enthusiastics to speak on issues that affect men while celebrating positive male role models.



The above quote lent voice to why I am usually so empathetic and passionate about the welfare of male humans just like I would care for women like me.

The quote about was written by the founder of The Ideal Men movement in Nigeria, Ojobo Agbo and it highlighted my own understanding around the expectations from men especially by women ...

In spirituality and the belief in God, I wrote the thoughts below after reading Ojobo's quote:



Why our 'I want a God fearing man' doesn't exactly work...why we get shocked at them.

How do you raise a male human being not to show emotion, and expect him to still be romantic, cuddle, cry and say 'i love you' everyday?. They can't even say 'God, I love you' most times cos of upbringing programming.

This 'Men thing' I am involved in is deeper than you know.

We know...we are the generation that must empower all humans equally, not leave men and boys out and then complain at how they turn out.


"Men are empowered from birth" is a dysfunctional way to think.

We are all humans trying to figure out life while battling identities and values.



What do you think?

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.

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.
