The Pessimism, The Ignorance and The Young Nigerian On Politics - Jenny Chisom

Nigeria's first Male empowerment blogger, Jenny Chisom lent her voice to politics focused on the mindset of some young Nigeria. Here is it unedited:

For Those young people who think no matter what a younger Nigerian does, he or she cannot win the likes of Buhari, Atiku and the statesmen in a Free and fair election; and those who even believe that no matter what happens, elections can never be free and fair in Nigeria, read and react later:

I see all you young but clueless people everywhere online and offline and my heart goes out for you.

It is obvious you do not believe that there comes a time in the life of a nation when young people decide to take back their nation and by their numbers, can achieve it.

What you call 'experience' as qualitfication for running for elective office is laughable, failed, greedy, people who have no jobs than hoodwink people with lies abi?.

You never consider that 'experience' means having a track record of building successful businesses, building people, building systems that are verifiable, understanding governance and having a huge love-for-nation as major drive.

You also think, politics should be 'a career, where you start by depending on bribes and handouts while carrying people's bags up and down, until a godfather finances your charade into office' abi?.

You have no clue then! It will take you by surprise...

On popularity, you forget that the Buharis and Atikus of these nation, where unknown until they were projected for office, the very first time they came along.

Is there any one Nigerian (apart from some celebrities) who is popular in every nook and cranny of the country?

Imagine you, thinking people like Fela Durotoye are not even known (at least amongst the community of varied people they empower)! Laughable.

It is sad, you have your retrogressive belief on Nigeria's political future, practices and strategy because your facts are from 'what has always been'.

I advise you go on and vote who you want but do keep your 'weakness at fighting for development' away from the rest of us.

2019 we will decide!

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
