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…

You can’t have a ‘head’ and claim there is no God

I am fully convinced that anyone who has gotten to the point of doubting the existence of God has truly lost his capacity to think. This is because everything around us and in us are screaming, shouting, pointing and showing the existence of one whom our minds cannot fully comprehend. And I think that’s the…

A Personal Tribute to Joshua Adah – a friend, boss, brother, mentor and hero.

By David Ogunshola. I started writing this piece the morning I heard of Joshua’s death. It’s interestingly strange that I could not complete it. Somewhere along the line I began telling myself “this cannot be true”. Now that I know it is really true. I tell my heart – it is well! Sleep on sir!…

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…

Something more than chicken burgers…

I happened to be at my wife’s office at lunchtime recently and we both decided to have lunch at this cool restaurant close to her office. Great meal it was by the way! We ordered dishes we don’t come by very easily. 45 minutes down the line, it was time to pay and I remember…

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…

My Journeys in Chad

When I started my trip into Chad about a year ago, I had no idea where it was headed or what to expect. I was just following my heart and following God. Today, its becoming one of the most significant cross-roads of my life as its gradually re-forming everything I knew and everything I do….

Get The Right Information

Last week, I was supposed to connect a flight from Douala in Cameroon to Ndjamena in Chad, but while waiting at the Douala airport for the check-in to begin, one of those guys who hang around airports trying to make a living and who earlier had tried with no success to get me to buy…
