Happy December

It’s with a great feeling and excitement that I welcome you to the very last month in the year 2018. Agreed, it’s not been easy. Many things have happened from January to this time – good, bad and ugly (and beautiful); whatever may be the case with you, one thing is certain – You are alive, hale and hearty.

I still find it very difficult to believe that we’re in November 2018; the activities of the past few days have been very tasking and challenging that it seems to me that time is flying.

Welcome September

We wish you a Happy New Month!!!

Hmmm …. This is September 2018; the month that ushers us to the much dreaded ‘Ember months’. I don’t know if it is universal, but in this part of the world, ‘ember’ months are usually the most fearful months of the year; it’s been reported that this period often witness the highest number of deaths caused by accidents and other means. The major prayer points in almost every religious centres at this time will be prayers against the blood-sucking demons, witches and wizards that does not want us to see the end of the year. As a matter of principle, some people don’t travel long distance during this period. As expected, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) will soon commence their ‘ember months’ campaign on safe driving and the need to be considerate to other road users.  As noble as these intentions are, it is the humble opinion of this writer that the kind of emphasis being paid to this period should be extended to every month of the year. Accidents should be prevented to the barest minimum at all times, and not at particular periods of the year.

Welcome August

We welcome you to the special month of August 2018. While I was growing up, I used to wonder why are some people referred to as ‘August Visitors’; and why can’t we have January Visitor, July Visitor, or any other month Visitor. However, during my research on the origin of ‘August Visitor’, I found out that ‘In Europe there is so much respect for seasons that whenever they have an important guest, they call him an ‘August visitor’, the reason being that the month of August is the peak of Summer season and the most comfortable month of hospitality for the Caucasian race of Europe, hence, it is expected that the coming of any visitor within this period to any environment brings a change to the atmosphere as the whole locality will be aware of such a visitor and they are received and treated very well’. With the above understanding, it is our firm believe that this month of August shall be special, outstanding and impressive for every one of us.

Go for Goal: The Attitudes of a Winning Team

Welcome July

This is July 2018, the month that ushers us to the second half of the year. Welcome on-board. In the game of football like in many other sporting competitions, the result of the second half is far more important than that of the first half, and as a matter of fact, the real winner of the game can only be declared at the end of the second half. If you have fought and conquered between January to June, and you feel oh you’ve tried enough and you deserve some rest, whereas your opponents (competitors) decide not to take a rest but they keep fighting on and improving on their skills, the result will be obvious at the end of the year. The winning team of the first half can become the loser at the end of the game (in the second half) if they relax. Indeed, it is only those that endure to the end that will be saved.

Welcome May Quotes, Happy New Month

Hurray!!! This is wishing you a Happy New Month!!!

We sincerely welcome you to the month of May 2018.

The month of April 2018 had quite a number of trending news; some of which are: President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB)’s speech at the Commonwealth meeting which insinuated that Nigerian youths are indolent and which came with serious uproar from the Nigerian youths, PMB’s declaration of his intention to run for second term, the grand finale of Big Brother Naija 2018 with the theme ‘Double Wahala’ which took place in South Africa and whereby Mr. Miracle emerged as the winner, the popular Nollywood actor, Igwe Tupac’s instagram video that went viral, indeed ‘he deserves some accolades’, the stolen of the mace from the National Assembly during sitting in broad day light, amongst several other interesting trending news. Nigeria is an interesting place to be, never a dull moment!

Welcome April

Another new month is here; the month in which the first day is widely known for lies, tricks, deception and fallacy. Sometimes I wonder why a whole day will be devoted for this evil intention, while no single day in a year is devoted to honesty, truthfulness, and other noble acts of goodness. This is a food for thought, but all the same, we wish you a Happy New Month and Happy Easter Celebration.

Welcome March

We welcome you to the new month of March 2018.

I almost found it difficult to believe that the month of February is ended. February used to be very strange to me. It is the shortest month of the year; while every other month ends on the 30th or 31st, February ends on the 28th. Then, I used to feel that other months cheated February, but after much protest by Mr. February, they decided to compensate him by donating one extra day to him which he gets every four years (that is, the leap year). Well, I used to feel cheated too by the number of days in the month of February, but I always console myself because everyone of us has equal amount of time, including the world’s richest people. It is not the number of days in each month that counts, but what we are able to accomplish with each passing day. If not for any other thing, we are highly privileged to witness the dawn of a new season. This shall be our best month ever!
