Christmas-Heralding Hope for Humanity

It was a dark world
Hopeless situation
Lost relationship with my creator
Eternity uncertain

Then shone a bright light
That heralded hope to me
God’s plan for my future
To spend eternity with Him

The birth of Jesus Christ-the bright light
My life now filled with hope
Relationship with my creator now restored
Eternity with my creator now certain

Angels celebrated his birth
The human race have been celebrating it
I have been celebrating it
Merry Christmas!

Message to Fellow Deltans on April 11,2015 Gubernatorial Election

Today Nigerians will go to the polls to vote  their various States’ Governors.And also decide who will represent them in the State House of Assembly.Before the March  28th Presidential elections,an average Nigerian has lost faith in the electoral process.
Then,ballot snatching culminating into rigging was the order of the day.Politicians see the elections as do-or-die affair.Off course,they have their foot soldiers at their disposal to cause chaos during or after elections.I still remember the 2003 elections,it was so bloody then between PDP and AD in Uvwie LGA of Delta State.I thank God that most of the ‘boys’are now wise not to be used as Pawns(Chess game on my mind).
My prayer is that today’s gubernatorial election in Delta State should be devoid of political violence between the three major players : PDP,APC and LP.
As a true son of the soil,I am so concerned about the development of my beloved State-Delta State.The Power Sector need to be improved.What stop the state from having a viable Independent Power Plants(IPPs).Must we be entirely dependent on the National Grid?For Delta State to be a fully industrialized,this must be put in place.
What next do we need in the State?.It is industrialization vis-a-vis mechanized agriculture.The Agricultural sector should be optimally harnessed.All the Sea Ports should be reopened.There is new one onboard now though.With these in place,the high rate of unemployment will drop in the State.
We can’t shy away from the fact that we are oil-producing state.Waivers should be given to the various International Oil Companies(IOCs) and Oil Servicing Companies so they should come back to Warri and other parts of the state.Warri should be restore back to the “Oil City” status she used to be known for.
The Educational sector should also be looked into.Some of the government schools need revamping.The psyche of most of the students of government schools need to be re-oriented.Teachers morale should be boosted up.
It is no news that most of the roads are in very very very good shape.We need good roads.All the  dilapidated ones should be repair.
Fellow Deltans,as we go to our various polling units,let’s put aside ethnic sentiment and logically vote the candidate who can deliver.Who can lead us as Joshua to the Promise land.We should be tired of pseudo-leaders who are only concern about amassing wealth from the state coffers to the detriment of the citizenry.
We are now in an era where  our votes count.
Vote Wisely!

Happy 54th Independence Anniversary Nigeria

I am proud to be a Nigerian and will always be a patriotic Nigerian despite the various challenges facing my beloved country.

To our fallen heroes and gallant soldiers who died to keep us safe from terrorists your memory will always be remembered.

To our leaders I pray for more wisdom and heart of patriotism for you.With this in place, looting of the country treasury for personal gains will be a thing of the past. The comfort of the citizenry will be the driving force not greed for personal gratifications.

I believe strongly in Nigeria’s greatness. With the driving force of true patriotism devoid of corruption, there will be a restoration to that enviable position we used to occupy.

Plowing Your Mind

“The mind is a garden. Plow it; you will get a maximum yield. But leave it unattended to, then it means you are set for misery.”—Ovie Uk.
The Holy Bible made us to understand that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:7)that means what we conceive with our mind, we shall surely become. When you think failure, you will become a failure.
The plow is used in farming for initial cultivation of soil in preparation for sowing seed or planting to loosen or turn the soil. Plows are traditionally drawn by working animals such as horses or cattle, but in modern times may be drawn by tractors. A plow may be made of wood, iron, or steel.
In the same vein, we need plow our mind by reading the Bible, Christian literature, listening to spirit-lifting gospel songs and off course corporate worship with fellow believers in Christ. After been plowed, the Holy Spirit can then work effectively on our mind to produce good fruits.
If you don’t fill your mind with the Word of God that means you don’t want to enrich your spirit for a conducive atmosphere for the Holy Spirit. And it is worthy to note that the Holy Spirit do gives us inspirations that can make us outstanding in all facets of our lives.
So an un-plowed mind is inhabitable for the Holy Spirit and such a mind will be devoid of inspirations. A life without inspiration is a life of misery.
Life is all about taking action. Get up! Take the Holy Bible, study it and fill your mind with God’s promises concerning the challenges you are passing through or the goals/visions you have purposed to actualize.
A Bible-filled mind doesn’t see the negative-doesn’t see an empty glass, but a glass filled with air.
Do you have a dream you want to achieve and don’t know how to go about it.It is high time you get up and plowed your mind. See you maximizing your yields.
