Say Hello

While at an event, a gentleman walked up to me and began to tell me about how he was trying to extend the borders of his business. He needed information about Calabar and had some difficulty finding someone who knew the city well enough to help him. I told him I had read that the average number of acquaintances separating any two people no matter who they are is four, and encouraged him to keep asking till he got the right links to the person with his solution. We parted ways and I went on to speak with another gentleman who mentioned he was going home for Christmas. I asked where home was,...

Watch & Learn

I thought I heard a truck approach but by the time the large drops began to drum on my roof, I realized it was a heavy downpour; heavy and abrupt. I say so because in about five minutes from the time it started, this amazing rainfall ended. I mean it just stopped. It was so fast, you couldn't have made it out in time to save your clothes if you had them spread outside to dry, or to position your drums if you rely on the rainfall for potable water. I hear showers like this happen every now and then in this pleasant city called Eket, and as this was my first experience,...

Pass It On

My son came back into the house with a sad look on his face. The chain of his bicycle had come off and he came to get help. He’s not yet outgrown the idea that his dad and I can fix everything and since I was the “engineer” on duty, I had to fix his bike. I made a quick trip down memory lane and stopped at the spot where I was an adventurous kid who had a bike. I recalled the know-how for solving chain problems and returned to work on my son’s bike. In a few minutes, I was done. Then I let him inflate his tyres to the point his...

Find Your Reason

Shout! It’s a new month. You made it and so you have every reason to rejoice and be glad. You may think it’s not a big deal but it is. You may even think there’s no reason to rejoice because you may have been through some tough times in the recent past but you have something right there to rejoice about – Your troubles didn’t drown you. Somehow, you made it through, you rode the waves rather than get swept under it. That tells me something. You’re tough! Or haven’t you heard? Tough times never last, but tough people do. Now just in case you feel like your storm is not over, or...

BLESSED

He worked in Akure at that time. I had just completed my second degree and was living with my family in Abuja. We planned to get married and settle in Akure. He had found an apartment for rent at a rate we could afford and located in an area with easy access to public transportation. It seemed we would be fine without a car for sometime. I planned to get whatever reasonable job I could find in Akure so I could provide some financial support. It clearly was going to be a humble beginning for our new family but we were young, we were in love with each other, we both had potential...
