Leadership has been defined in many ways based on different perspectives which examine variables such as traits of effective leaders, leadership styles, the concept and use of power, personal and environmental contingencies, and leadership models and theories. Yet in the many articles that have been written and about 350 definitions given by a variety of experts (Lunenburg & Ornstein, 1996), the findings have not been conclusive as to what entails effective leadership. One great definition is: “Leadership is the art of leading others to deliberately create a result that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.”

Italian political strategist Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince has had incredible influence since its publication 5 years after his d...

Our lives instigate to culminate the day; we incline to be hushed of the things that substantiate. Seeking to overlook makes exile all the longer, the key of revitalization lies in reminiscence. It is the sphere of gen to talk but the privilege of astuteness to listen and pay attention. Great African writers of the old worked beyond, on the far side of, the superficial of things right or wrong and cleared the ways for our grandparents, oldsters and grandchildren, cleared the path for posterity. Their kindness in words created buoyancy. Their benevolence in discerning breeds profoundness. A being is a product of his thoughts, what he thinks he becomes.

We should transcend textbooks and set books, transcend philosophy and literati’s, go out in...

When someone talks about graduation the first thing that comes to mind is visions of pomp and circumstance, trying to picture some literati savants cladding in regalias ready to employ their hard gained knowledge in changing the world. Am also in that group of people. Well, guys, I graduated last year December… and so? An idiot somewhere stood and shouted, “Victor, you have done it, hurrah!” And I was perturbed, “Done what? Travelled for 10 continuous hours just to hear my name being read, to wear a murky creepy daunting black dress in the name of a graduation regalia or just because I spent a sleepless night to attend this so called “misplaced ceremony”. Was that what I had waited four years for? Was that the day I had been dreaming for 16...

They sit glued to their computers, or laptops as you may prefer, pondering about historical facts. Projecting a combination of words and figures, terming them as forecasts, and they (we) are there too as passengers in a vehicle they call a meeting. Eyes rolling, going dry, mouths open, they yawn, body movements here and there, they are losing balance, legs shaking, others keen on their smuggled-in smartphones, did they get uncomfortable too. Oh! And they carried notebooks, masquerading along corridors, “We are going for a meeting”, people would think these are the kind of serious minds the nation desires for. Notebooks and pens on their grips and hands, with no intention of using them. As the so-called ‘crusade’ proceeds they start eating t...

It’s on March 9, 2017… the 68th day of the year and I couldn’t be more grateful, happy and blessed to be alive. I consider it a bit farcical to write about my birthday on my blog, leave alone to celebrate it. But today am going to make an exception. Before I start ‘partying’, let me first express my gratitude to God Almighty for the gift of life and a great thank you to my family and friends for their love and support. That done, allow me to do this stupid thing of when, where, why, how, who and what. It’s kind of a taboo for ‘us’.


Thursday, March 9. This is the most important day to me, because it marks the day my journey began on earth. The boring part about my birthday this year, is that today is a weekday. Birthday parties held on ...
