WILL THERE BE A CANDLE FOR YOU?


December 11th, 2016 was the Worldwide Candle Lighting Day. Everywhere around the globe, at 7 PM local time people lit candles to remember their lost loved ones.
The idea is to portray that even though people may have died and no longer exist in this world, their memories and legacies will endure. This brings the following questions to mind;
What will you be remembered for when you are gone?
Will your so-called loved ones even light a candle for
No doubt, this world we live in is a very dangerous and wicked one. We have to always ensure that when we leave, we should not be remembered for how many people we could have helped but never did, how many hearts we have broken, how many eyes cried because of our actions and inaction or how many relationships we have severed.
We should be remembered for the countless times we have helped people realized their true purpose and potentials in life. We should strive to impact our world positively so that when we leave, people will have a reason to light candle for us on a day light this.
Who will you light a candle for today? and why?2

DR. HALIMAT SALIU: THE GM (GENERAL MAMA) By Yusuf Abubakar Idogu

“At every turn in history, iconic men and women; those exceptional people with unprecedented breadth of service to humanity, the icons whose trajectory stand them apart from the packs, appear like the comet to beautify our world. Great achievers and product of inspiration, such rare breeds of men and women do not appear from the abyss of frivolity, vainglory or wishful thinking. Inspiration and courage gave birth to them while patriotism and passion for hard work nurtured them into limelight and ingrained them in our hearts” Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade.
Ebira land and Nigeria by extension has been very fortunate to be blessed with such a thoroughbred. I talk of a woman and a mother to all. “Mummy” as she is fondly called by the staff of TaoFm where I have been working as a voluntary worker for sometimes now is truly a mother figure to all.
As the General Manager of the organization, one would expect a boss who will merely boss people around the workplace as common with most people in …

THE REMOTE AND IMMEDIATE CAUSES OF AJAOKUTA LOCAL GOVERNMENT DOWNFALL FROM MY OWN PERSPECTIVE BY Ojeje Isah Abdulrahman.

Ajaokuta local government is one of the most blessed local government among the 774 local government in Nigeria. It is blessed with enormous natural resources including the notable iron and steel company. Despite all these blessing or free gifts from God, Ajaokuta local government is also among the poorest local government in Nigeria and this can be attributed to the following reasons.
Firstly, the abandonment of Ajaokuta iron and steel company. The company was established and commissioned by Alhaji Shahu Shagari's administration in 1983, and it was abandoned by the subsequent government. The Ajaokuta iron and steel company would have been a major source of income to the local government and the country at large. It would have generated a lot of employment opportunities which could have reduced the level of unemployment to zero level and again it would have facilitates rapid development and enhances the standard of living of the people of Ajaokuta local government area.

BETWEEN BEING CYBER ROGUES AND POLITICAL CRITICS BY Barr. Shadrach Omeiza, E.

The current crops of “cyberlists” have intermittently portrayed themselves as folks who are alien to decorum and responsibility. They hide under the toga of criticism and run amok with every unimaginable piece of lie under the earth, crossing every line of decency and honesty. Painfully, this very concept and definition of criticism utterly elude them.
It is obvious that, a society where a line is not drawn between value and vices is at the precipice of lawlessness, but alas greater is the number of folks who seem to mesmerize in the pools of social vices and any attempt to purge the menace is greeted with a shout of blue murder!
There is definitely no wrong in exercising every human right conceived by the Constitution, not limited to the freedom of speech and expression only but no provision in the Constitution to make oneself a law unto himself /herself. This is where the self –styled critics lose the point, turning themselves into cyber rogues, tempting the law.
