Solved: I cannot access the internet using my mobile data

I use a Gionee android device and for about three weeks I could not access the internet using my mobile data. It either tells me “No Internet” or “Your Internet Access has been Blocked” meanwhile I have no firewall or anything network restricting app. Surprisingly, when I share the data to my laptop via a…

5 things every man needs in today’s world

  The desire to live a significant life and leave a mark in history is one that almost every man desires; however, not everyone gets to live this dream. It often ends up like a futile race of chasing shadows if one does not develop the right strategy to fight and win in today’s world….

The magic of Twenty Naira and an elderly Nigerian “boli” seller 

The magic of Twenty Naira and an elderly Nigerian “boli” seller 

​I love it whenever I do this.  I stopped to buy boli (roasted plantain) on the streets of Lagos. You can’t beat the experience of hot fresh boli on a rainy evening. I pointed at the boli of my choice and the elderly woman selling it muttered that it’s N80 (Eighty Naira). She was naturally…

Eloquence, Logic and Spiritual Passion

Eloquence, Logic and Spiritual Passion

  Yes, those three elements: Eloquence, Logic and Spiritual Passion, combined were said to have made St. Augustine of Hippo one of the most significant thinkers of Church history.

The shallowness of grandlessness.

The shallowness of grandlessness.

This evening, I sat looking at the family picture of a dear friend. We go a few years back together, back on campus I knew him to be quite influential in his own little circle. He had some music skills but did want to forfeit a corporate career for anything, not even music. Today, roughly 8 years…

Do we fold our hands as Nigerians become refugees in their country?

In the last few weeks, I have found it extremely hard to close my eyes to and ignore some of the extreme realities that face me and sound through my phone on a daily basis. William Wilberforce is known to have said “after seeing all these, you can choose to look the other way, but…

It’s what you see that matters!

“In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord…” – Isa 6:1 That year was recorded in history as a tragic year. A king had died that year who had ruled for so many years, and he probably had a lot of sympathizers, and so every event that took place that year…

As you make your choices in life

No matter what you want to do with your life, you will always have enough reasons and find enough justification to do it. So the question of whether you are fully persuaded about something or not is in most cases a self-made escape route that just sounds right and that you can use to make…

Just another man… without Him

When the Holy Spirit runs in your veins, your mind and sight is transformed to become like that of God. You see the whole world as just one object. You see everything as possible and do-able. Nations become like pieces on an object, you get so energetic and enthusiastic. At that point, you feel you…
