Nairaland / General / Feladurotoye Visits Uyo Akwa Ibom State For Transformation! by Realitytalk(f): 7:03am On May 11, 2013
“An ordinary man being used by an extraordinary God to change nations into desirable societies one person at a time” is the best description for a quintessential embodiment of brains, icon of undiminishing return and a man with strong ties to the rules of law. The above description could be the only cap that fits motivational speaker, consultant extraordinaire, “Apostle in the Marketplace” and life coach felaDUROTOYE.

All proficient front-runners recognize that the toughest decisions are the ones that involve people. Some front-runners run from those decisions. Certain hope they just take care of themselves. Still other cream-of-the-crop become almost paralyzed besieged about what to do. The amazing thing is that in most every one of those cases the leader knows what needs to be done. They know what’s right; they just can’t make themselves do it. Yet there is always one front-runner that lives to fulfil the definition of his calling by taking a monumental decision to make a real difference in this world and felaDUROTOYE is one of such.

In a city where education is fast becoming a fashion and not a definition, where the best use of certification is as a political qualification, where ill-literacy is celebrated and illiteracy is a comedy, in a community where court jesting is a career and hard work is slavery…. A community of dependants, sycophantics, religious bigamy and political monopoly felaDUROTOYE is stepping into the land for a paradigm shift, and change lives while impacting the nation.

Get ready to herald a new dawn…..Its transformation!! You could go here /p2H6H2-9N and follow up the details.

Politics / Animal Farm 2015 by Realitytalk(f): 2:22am On May 01, 2013
What is required is to restore democracy in Nigeria by returning to open and democratic elections in which the citizens count the votes openly in each polling station. Sorry to disappoint you, but there are no quick fixes for problems as huge and as complex as the ones facing us today. What has grown over a period of 50Image+ years, and has been especially exacerbated during the past 9 years, cannot be solved in just a few years. You can’t get rid of weeds simply by cutting off their leaves or branches, or even their stalks. You have to attack them at their roots. And that is what we have to do here. We cannot afford to accept just piecemeal solutions. We need to get to the root of the problems, starting with, We need a National Assembly that is once again responsive to the will and needs of the Nigerian people as our Constitution intended. Why? Because, they are the root of so many of our major problems. They pass laws that affect major parts of the Administrative branch, corporate Nigeria, the thirty six states, and the citizens they are elected to represent. In addition, they authorize appropriations, pass budgets; approve appointments to judicial and administrative positions; declare war (supposedly), and have the responsibility for impeachment of federal officers including the president and vice-president, along with many other responsibilities. They are the source of tremendous power. When it works well, things bode well for the country. But, when the members fail at their job, they are a tremendous disappointment, and the country suffers. That is the situation we now must face.

Who Are These People? These are the chosen few from our entire population who have been elected to represent the interests of the Nigerian people, and they promise great things for the country when they are campaigning. However …Once in office, their first loyalty is to themselves and ensuring that they get reelected. Next is their allegiance is to their political parties in trying to ensure that enough of their members get elected to facilitate pushing their political agendas through their legislation. Third are their financial backers –the super-rich who contribute heavily to their campaigns, and who run ads supporting their anointed candidate while excoriating his or her opponent.Fourth come the people who voted for them.And dead last come the rest of the people in the country whose best interests they are also supposed to represent.

Don’t They Listen to the People? No. Most members of National Assembly ignore most letters, e-mails, tweets, Facebook postings and phone calls. At best, they will have a staff member pore through them and pull out any that might be of particular interest or value to the representative They only care about people who happen to support their positions or carry promises of substantial campaign support. Politicians also don’t pay attention to polls, which are valid expressions of the public will. They are likely to tell you that “polls don’t vote; people do.” So, they ignore the polls, which are valid expressions of the public will, just as they do the people themselves. In so doing, they are ignoring the democratic principles upon which this country was founded.

Events / Grand Opening Of The Largest Single Building in Lagos State.“Rock Cathedral” by Realitytalk(f): 11:48pm On Apr 15, 2013
With all certainty if we desire to influence a post-Christian humanity, we must be Worthy News before someone will listen to Good News. One of the trepidations of members of the community in contradiction of the church is that it amasses so plentiful from followers leaving many of them shoddier. In fact, in the modern eras, the church has been taken up on numerous cases that numerous deliberate the dictatorship of the church against the public. A close example is the increased charge on some of the amenities provided by the church. Precisely, a percentage of persons are uncomfortable about high cost of church educational institutions; nursery, primary, secondary and university. However, there are few of the churches which really care for the people.

I learnt my first words attending Sunday school in the days the church had less activity and more productivity, then the church at its best was a rehabilitation centre for a decaying world which was not even confirmed decayed as at then. I attended a missionary school and received the best education, my mother consulted for a missionary hospital which provided not just compulsory by satisfactory and classic healthcare to the ailing in its community; the youths gave free lunch tickets even though things were not free in Freetown with any strings attached. That way and in many more ways the gospel of Christ was preached and as the church followed deeply after the footsteps of its creator and the architect of its blueprints, men were drawn to God through them. Many Nigerians today would not have become successful but for the martyrs who laboured and saved their scanty incomes to provide them education Some Nigerians, after the preliminary teaching or once being discovered to have positive aptitude or competence, were sent overseas for advanced schooling or experience.

Now, I am still searching for where we lost it….it was sometime between when the Church started monetizing the good news and the disciples “the stakeholders” started going a fishing then government had to intervene in the case of the gospel…well that is a real issue for another day but alas as it is said Salvation has reached the people today. Glad to say, the church is taking back its place and its redeeming the gates.

There has come today, to stay, a church without walls. Built on the rock that definitely we have watched and witnessed cannot be moved. A church that has come to define the living word, from the written word. The church is founded and presided over by Pastor Paul Adefarasin a quintessential embodiment of brains, good character, a visionary leader with an adamant set of morals and values. It has its headquarters in Lekki, Lagos. Apart from impartation of spiritual influence, 5 star leadership, HOTR is also known for its widespread philanthropic deeds. In order to explore itself of the charity spirit, the church set up The Rock Cathedral.

“The Rock Cathedral is the multipurpose facility that will soon house the headquarters of The Rock Foundation and the House On The Rock. The building with a total floor area of 32,000 m2, (the largest footprint for a single building in Lagos State) will accommodate facilities for worship, education, healthcare, community development, reformation training, recreation and social rehabilitation among many other initiatives. The user-friendly main auditorium, multi-purpose halls and overflow spaces will comfortably seat up to 14,000 people at full capacity. The state-of-the-art ergonomically designed facility is structured to permit the efficient evacuation of human traffic in just less than 10 minutes. The project is presently in its final phase of development and the fully serviced, fully air-conditioned facility will greatly assist the Rock Foundation to do its part in bringing healing and reformation to this great nation.

A place of Learning; The Rock Cathedral will serve as a centre for the worship services of the House On The Rock as she fulfils her vision to be the hand of power, the voice of healing and a bridge of hope to her generation. The Rock Foundation is committed to the reformation of our nation. Specialized training will produce future leaders who are virile, visionary and equipped with the relevant secular skills to excel in the various sectors of industry. The centre is designed to run four separate educational systems. These are; Primary school, an Adult Education centre, a Skills Acquisition Centre and A Bible College. Each of these schools will provide a quality of learning at par with the best corresponding educational institutions around the world. They will run a robust curriculum that promotes the underlying guiding principles of stewardship, integrity, diversity, empowerment and social responsibility, all of which are required to build a strong nation.

A place of Prayer; Effective and strategic prayer underpins our faith and is critical to the necessary reformation of our nation. The Rock Cathedral has been designed to provide all visitors with an ambience that is both inspired and uplifting. This unique environment will be created, not just by the wonderful décor and amenities of the building but more so by an atmosphere bathed in the heartfelt prayers that will be offered up within the facility 24 hours a day. Much of this praying will take place within a 500-seater prayer chapel located in the Cathedral.

A place of Reformation; Reformation is one of the key areas the church can help meet the needs of her society. The Rock Cathedral will house a Reformation Centre which will run a curriculum to assist young people realize their full potential and become leaders of impact in their various fields of endeavour, of the requisite calibre to contribute positively towards a greater Nigeria. There will also be programs to assist previously disadvantaged person re-integrate into society. The course run in the Reformation Centre will be specifically designed to inculcate proper values and work ethic through reorientation, mentoring and leadership.
In addition, the centre will provide participants with capacity building exercises and vocational training to empower them to live successful lives as productive members of society.

A place of Recreation; In support of our strong belief that the family is the basic unit of society; the Cathedral will provide recreational facilities the whole family can enjoy. These include a fully equipped gymnasium and games room all situated within the serene and beautifully landscaped grounds.
A place for you…”

The grand opening of this revolutionary temple is set for 20th & 21st April, 2013 and will attract nations to herald the breaking of a new dawn for the church. I listened to stories of its conception like many others but what was striking was its relevance in existence, its balance and its mission statement. This is the gospel we were introduced to, a generation that are living the written word, a people that are giving back to society. If like me you have missed church at its best then I think we should visit the Rock Cathedral, or read and follow unfolding events to understand the mission and the functional existence of the brand “House On The Rock”.

your vote is your voice, your power and your strength. If everyone where to come out in their might and cast their mind would power not return to the right?
Politics / Nigeria’s Headache by Realitytalk(f): 10:31pm On Apr 11, 2013
While the emerging powers envision a Nigeria whose rules and arrangements are more meditative of its contemporary premeditated equilibrium, they do not, for now, have a lucid substitute to offer to today’s free-thinking international order.

As the battle for the gubernatorial seat of my state intensifies, the black men carry the medals once more as Barrack Obama regains his position of authority in the white house. As impossible as Romney may deem this feat Obama the one time infamous black “nigger” as we are widely described has claimed the hearts of even his white skinned supporters. With the debates, the facts, the lies, the racism…one would have thought that we are doomed as black men to be enslaved to the white. Phew… a huge sigh of relief.

A close look inwards, does leadership need have a colour? Must a select few sit on the platform? Shouldn’t we allow the workers to have the wages? A question in a million that I ask my people daily. Everyone wants a piece of the national cake for self aggrandizement not for generational profitability. We are so obsessed with power that we are ready to love drama and use people. It does not matter how many people die daily because of our poor decisions, we really do not care how many have lost their lives fighting for us to sit on these seats, the poor medical healthcare of our people are so dim we overlook it yet take to our heels to a harbour of hope in another man’s land, education is food for a class and crumbs for the less privileged, the hunger and malnourishment is an avenue to make more wealth into our coffers. What actually matters to us is who leads and not how he leads, where he leads us to is secondary.

On the 10th of December it will be 49 years since Martin Luther had a dream that is now becoming the reality that we live in. Seven score and eight years from the time a great American man put his hand to paper in order to birth an Emancipation Proclamation. This proclamation arrived as a great beacon of hope to a camp of millions of negroes who were slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. He had a dream “that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.” By faith I accept the last part of the prophecy as one to unfold in my time, by reality my contemporaries deem men into categories based on their pouch.
One score years after Martin Luther’s dream I was born and have lived a score and eight years. Today we are still struggling to understand perfectly the dream of restoration we had. No longer enslaved by our white masters, but our very own selves. Like Martin Luther stated “But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.
One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition”.

Not just the negroes but the people of my very own community. We are still being enslaved by our own people, we take their money and go to the market to buy a keg filled with gunpowder. Despite the principles stated clearly on marble as regards democracy there is a consistent struggle for power that takes a pound of flesh to reign. How long will we sit and watch the reins of power being pulled by the oppressor, will we all come out not regarding our skin colour and tribe to vote for the one who will take us to the next level or will we sit in the enclose of our rooms and discomfort of our homes and grumble a change impossible.

America has once again shown us the way forward your vote is your voice, your power and your strength. If everyone where to come out in their might and cast their mind would power not return to the right? I have a dream that one day we will enjoy free and fair elections, that one day our individual votes will count for the collective good of our people, our children, generations unborn and at last our country, that we will cease oppressing our kith and kin, that righteousness will be exalted upon this country and the government will be upon “His” shoulders. As we approach 2015 there is a need to come out of your cave and start speaking positively, let us tell our children, let us begin to instruct our youth, may we whisper to our fathers and look with our eyes at the right direction, choosing wisely and using the only voice that will count. Our vote.

Whether we accept it or not; Barrack Obama is back on seat. Voted into power by people who stood the lines, did not accept some cheap ransom to sell their power, their voice and their mind, no shedding of blood, no kidnapping, no assassination, no blackmailing, no terrorism, no impeachment, no money laundering, simply good governance amplified. He may not be perfect but he is the leader of the people, by the people and for the people. In conclusion I relate with a section on the United States itself, for reasons that Graham Allison articulated when he assessed the U.S.’s strategic position early last year: and I beg it’s application to my country in a bid that I will use a drug that has once worked to cure my own ailment peradventure it will relieve my pain.

“The number-one problem for the Nigeria is Nigeria. The major challenges to the future of Nigerian power are internal rather than external [...] Nigerian recovery and renewal are not inherent birthrights [...] For the foreseeable future, as the old Pogo cartoon put it: we’ve met the enemy, and he is us” [Allison's emphasis]. http:///csa4klg

………before discussing policy, security or the economy at the first debate, president Obama paused to publicly acknowledge and appreciate the presence of his wife Michelle who had stood faithfully by his side. Under his own admission he would not have been where he is; if not for her. Bachelors and bachelorettes the maid a man picks will either catapult him into destiny or tie him to complacency. The saying “behind every successful man is always a woman who is tired of pushing him there” is often used.

Literature / UNYIME-IVY KING – “burning Hurt” Akwa Ibom’s Bestfemale Literary Fiction Writer by Realitytalk(f): 8:27pm On Apr 10, 2013
Is “Burning Hurt” story fictional or a reality?
I can say this story is a literary piece of a reality report simply set with fictional characters. Like, I always say this story is a life story I heard during my years of service to the nation as a youth corps member. The story was told of a girl who got pregnant for a young man who denied the pregnancy. After birth the girl singlehandedly took care of the baby till the baby passed on and she in anger, pain and hurt stripped naked and cursed him. Therein lies the theme for my book “Burning Hurt”. I also remember hearing stories of similar experiences of men and women in terrible relationships where the men abandoned the women or walked away from them when needed most. I heard my family making a statement ........READ MORE http://www./p2H6H2-4N
