…….Take it easy

Tell those who glee on stage
About those who are in cage
That life is not about your age
No matter how you live in mage
You will be remembered in page.

Whoever knows worth of love
Will appreciate the love of dove
Indeed love is a gold in cove
Nobody appreciates it than vove.

It is good to have friends
Who have no time to pend
But planned to have ends
And give no heart to depend
On whatever they lend.

 

Have you forgotten your past?
When there is nothing to cast
And you were considered last
But you later struggle and fast
Until you turn world to vast.

DANGER OF SOCIAL MEDIA TO TEENAGERS IN 21ST CENTURY.

Social Media? Yes, what’s your opinion?

Only Self discipline can guide souls, mind and deeds to circumvent the detriment of technology these days. Could you imagine what was reported to have been the cause of students failure in just concluded West Africa Examination exercise?. Major factor is misuse of social media in 21st century by teenagers. It suffices to tag it ” Danger of social media to teenagers in 21st Century”. It was reported that students find it difficult to write correct spellings(addiction of chat shorthand) which by the way will definitely affects mechanical accuracy.

DANGER OF SOCIAL MEDIA TO TEENAGERS IN 21ST CENTURY.

Only Self discipline can guide souls, mind and deeds to circumvent the detriment of technology these days. Could you imagine what was reported to have been the cause of students failure in just concluded West Africa Examination exercise?. Major factor is misuse of social media in 21st century by teenagers. It suffices to tag it ” Danger of social media to teenagers in 21st Century”. It was reported that students find it difficult to write correct spellings(addiction of chat shorthand) which by the way will definitely affects mechanical accuracy. Besides, they are fond of using mangled English(pidgin) for communication rather learning standard British English.

In addendum, Exam malpractices has been legalize to the extent that students believe links for expo can easily be founded through social media. I was opportune to partake in November, 2017 NECO marking of scripts. I noticed that large proportion of the candidates wrote answers (Mathematics) in computer language and symbols such as using caret (^) for power, * for multiplication etcetera.

Nevertheless, the truth shall prevail. Let’s put in efforts to do the needful that will promote patriotism, diligence, commitment and dedication to encourage people and teenagers of like minds in achieving valued success through western education.

…….. who teaches?

Ability to impart knowledge and to have positive influence in life of people are the major motive of teaching-learning processes. Educational system of these days gives little or no room to achieve the aforementioned goal. In primary level, teachers are trying possible best to bring out the best in young minds and to model what they intend to become while majority in secondary level shows nonchalant attitude towards this. Sometimes it is as a result of bad governance of neither positive reinforcement nor motivation coupled with incompetency in some teachers. Although, it is a great and challenging task at tertiary level for so-called lecturers to combine lecturing and researching.lecturer 2 Putting into consideration the academic slogan ” publish or perish ” which determines academic recognition and promotion locally and internationally have made it untoward for them to carry out the task.

At this juncture, we need to iron out this issue by let go of superfluous activities and create a focus route for students at tertiary institutions. Instead of lecturers playing pranks on student intelligence by delaying lectures towards the end of the semester, threatening students for payment of handout for continuous assessment, boy-cutting relevant topics of interest, laziness among others, there should be subdivision of lectures into two major groups ; Academic lecturers and Industrial lectures. Academic lecturers should be meant to teach effectively not just giving out courseware or materials to students. They should focus much on carrying out practical projects with students and thereby bringing out best in them other than rote learning and vague memorization. Industrial lecturers should be trained to conduct research with industry initiatives and funding. They should be able to communicate their research results to the world using pragmatic approach. Research papers is of no importance if we can’t feel the physical impact in the societies, though my opinion. In addendum, students under academic lectureship should carry out internship/SIWES/Industrial training (IT) with Industrial lecturers to understand what they learnt better in real-world situation.

In conclusion, teaching in any form is a task that requires, dedication and commitment. If you are one, try to make a landmark of continual benefits for coming generations. Teach, do not cheat ; Nurture, do not torture ; Lead, do not deal. Mind you, philosophy is life is similitude to law of Kalmar; what goes around, comes around.

…..Pen is mightier than sword, Use it !

Acadasage

Who knows what it takes?
To give a presentable cakes
Without much stress at stakes
To someone who is fake.

For the masses to hear
It means majority have ears
And if found difficult to bear,
They will communicate with tears.

Thus, there exist an object
Meant to be use to object
And act wisely to eject
Unfavourable content of subject.

Don’t say l have no choice
Go ahead! and give out voice
If you are presented wrong invoice
So that you will live to rejoice.

When you found yourself in den
And you need to present by ten

Pick up a paper and a pen
Put your points and ideas in Venn
This will prepare you by then
To communicate with women and men
That will make you say amen.

Do you know Staid City?

 

Existence is an opportunity for all souls but a little appreciate this. All human are born equal but we are born into inequalities. Some are born with silver spoon while some are born in drainage system pathway, this is perceive as what has been ordained by Almighty. Nevertheless, diligence and moral decadence determine those that will succeed or achieve greatness irrespective of how they were born.

I was born in a community of elites in which education and exposure is not wanting. I used to wine and dine with learned ones and I learnt under their tutelage which broaden my scope of knowledge and also prepare me for life challenges.

I have being to different states in Nigeria. Among which are ; Kwara, Niger, Abuja, Zamfara, Sokoto, kebbi, katsina, kaduna, kano just to mention a few. My experiences in those states can never be compare with the staid city.  Meanwhile, I learnt some lessons that are horrible and untoward.

Can you imagined a situation whereby you need to wake up as early as possible, around 3.00am or thereabout not only to meet up with the early arrival at place of work but also to circumvent the traffic jam? Have you experienced a scenarios whereby you find it difficult to eat three square meal despite you are financially buoyant but due to cumbersome workload at hand with little or no assistance? Can you cope in a circumstance that will not permit you to think of your future career other than working to get cash which can only  cater for your food, clothes and shelter at average cost? All aforesaid interrogative expressions can only be answered with substantial points by those who stay in staid city.

Perhaps you think life is easy for those who live there. Life is quite miserable for the rich and the poor. Just that those with enriched pocket used large proportion of their income to live comfortably while those with epileptic income find it painstaking but favorable option(s) is of no avail.

Staid city is subsumed with heavily dense population which increases exponentially every blessed day. It possesses a landmass that is of small size with large portion filled with oceans and beaches. 75% of the available land is occupied by industries and commercial centers. This doesn’t pave way for much residential areas. Majority of the residents are using transport which increases the rate of traffic congestion especially during closing hour of the day.

You will wonder why we have such issues in the staid city?. The reason is not far fetch if one can carefully look into possible effect of a settlement with such features. Albeit, we have several bridges which suppose to ease movement but they are always busy and congested due to the effect of high population. Mind you, every member of other regional settlement in the country are contained in the staid city. In fact, it was once the capital city of the country.

This is an aphorism which goes thus : “Let me perch a while is the ruse that turns a parasite to be the homeowner”. That is what exactly led to permanent residency of some members of other state that visited the staid city for business or other purposes but surprisingly couldn’t go back home in the end.

Interestingly, all working class are paying tax either workers in private/public sectors or self employed. Even registration is imposed on all businesses in the city. We have several places of interest for relaxation and sociable events. If you are fortunate to mingle with wealthy people in the city, your life will never remain the same.

Cynically, it is a city of people who play pranks on one’s intelligent at the expense of proving how wise they are. This perception has been soo rampant to the extent that fighting, hooliganism, thuggery and other social vices are stains on white cloth of the city. They have escalated dubious attitudes, forgery, fraud and insincerity to other regional states. I witness and had several poignant experience of such act.

In a nutshell, life is good at staid city though it favors the rich but requires innovation , creativity, sociability, humbleness and industrious attitude for less privilege ones to survive.
