I am not saying this guy will go broke. But in my honest opinion, I think he is living beyond his means, or at best living a very extravagant life.

Thanks for this information. Initially when I got this information by email, I nearly overlooked and deleted it. Then I saw this and quickly checked my email for confirmation.
Over the years, you have been my main source of information to Nigerian news. It amazes my people in Naija of how well informed I am. I never let them know that nairaland is my source. Some think that I have spies on the ground. Lols
Kudos and God bless Nairaland.
|Politics / Re: Nigerians React To Kemi Adeosun's Resignation Over Fake NYSC Certificate Scandal by yommyuk: 4:27pm On Sep 14, 2018|
I still don't understand the relevance of NYSC in her appointment as finance minister of Nigeria.
Did she apply for the job or was appointed by the president. Her mistake was lack of disclosure
. Transparency would have allowed the issue to have been formally vetoed.
Morally and ethically, she was wrong,especially when it is coming from a person whose profession, fundamentally requires such attributes.
Very bad for her resume and credibility. Forgery within the Accounting profession is a big No, No.
In her next interview, she will now be hoping they don't ask her why she left her last job.
Hmmm. Integrity goes a long way, my people.
Hope she gets a good payoff to ease the pain.
It is well.

|Religion / Brotherly Advice And Prayer For 2017 by yommyuk: 8:40am On Dec 31, 2016|
In all that you choose to do, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. These two spiritual personas will keep you safe on your way to greater glory. Your feet will not stumble. You will go to bed without fear. You will lie down and sleep soundly every day. Fear and tribulation will not be your portion. You will be guided away from evil traps. You will find honour with both God and people. You will earn a good reputation. Your life will be filled and overflowed with goodness. You will have long life on your right hand, riches and honour on your left hand. You will be satisfied. You will be refreshed. When the enemies gather against you, you shall not fear because Jehovah is your security, strong tower, shield and rock of salvation. You shall be empowered to face persecution. You shall live in peace. You shall be blessed.
IT IS WELL. STAY BLESS AS YOU ENTER A PROSPEROUS 2017.
|Religion / Resentment Towards Christmas by yommyuk: 4:21pm On Dec 24, 2016|
Look around you. While many may be enjoying the festivities of Christmas, some are still holding on to bitterness and disdain. But don’t be surprised—the problem isn’t the season; it’s the Saviour. Our need for salvation reminds us of our own shortcomings and inability to redeem ourselves.
This is not the first time that Jesus stirred up antagonism in someone’s heart. Herod was troubled when he heard that the magi were looking for the King of the Jews. When they didn’t return to report the location of the Christ child, he became enraged and slaughtered all the male children in Bethlehem who were two years of age and under (Matt. 2:16).
What is it about Jesus that causes some people to feel such hostility? Herod’s fury was fuelled by his desire for power and control. He didn’t want another king, no matter how small, to dethrone him. People today scorn the celebration of Christ’s birth for the same reason—they don’t want anyone else ruling their life.
Romans 1:18 says that people who reject Jesus Christ have suppressed the truth. The Lord pointed out that those who fear their deeds will be exposed as evil won’t come to the Light (John 3:19-20). However, we should never assume that salvation is impossible for someone who is hostile to Jesus. After all, the apostle Paul was an aggressive persecutor of the church until his conversion.
, people who resent Christianity and Christmas may seem unreachable to us. But remember: No one is beyond the reach of Jesus.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth
IT IS WELL. MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE. GOD BLESS

|Religion / Have Joy In Spreading The Word by yommyuk: 6:08am On Dec 19, 2016|
Jesus calls us to be His witnesses. When some Christians hear this, they worry that they need exceptional skill or charisma in order to explain the good news to others. Yet to witness is not merely to share the plan of salvation with someone. The word literally means “to see, hear, or know by personal presence and perception; testify to; bear witness; give or afford evidence of.” When John wrote that he was sharing what he had experienced first-hand, he was saying, “I am full of joy because of the experience of knowing Jesus, and I want to invite you to share in that joy.”
When you’re in love with someone, you are excited about the relationship and time spent together. Likewise, when you’re in love with Jesus, you can’t keep to yourself the joy that comes from knowing Him—it just spills over, bearing witness and strengthening other believers. In fact, as you give testimony of who God is and how He’s working in your life, it makes no difference whether you speak quietly or with great exuberance. In their spirit, others will pick up on the deep, genuine gladness in your heart that goes beyond natural happiness. And people who don’t yet know the Lord will find themselves hungering for the joy you have. In that way, they will be drawn to His Spirit in you.
Witnessing is not a matter of eloquence or talent; it’s an overflow of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As you allow the Holy Spirit to increasingly express His life and power through you, contagious joy will be the fruit of His indwelling presence.
But Moses said to the Lord, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
1 Corinthians 2:1-8
And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. ...
1 Corinthians 2:13
And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
1 Corinthians 1:21
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:17
For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
1 Timothy 4:13
Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.
And saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
IT IS WELL. GOD BLESS
|Religion / Make Christ The Lord Of Your Life by yommyuk: 6:10am On Dec 16, 2016|
Followers of Jesus would agree that whether we live or die, we do so for Christ. But His sovereignty is not limited to those who claim Him as King. The entire world—the whole universe, in fact—is subject to His authority. At the final judgment, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess and praise God.
In the here and now, relatively few people recognize the Lord’s rule and seek to remain in His will. Most refuse to see that all of our human constructs—such as government, culture, and society—thrive or falter in the palm of God’s hand. Moreover, nonbelievers resist Christ’s sovereignty in their own lives. People who won’t surrender their will to the Lord’s great purpose assume control of their own destiny. However, the Lord’s supreme reign cannot be thwarted.
It’s common for men and women today to believe that there are no consequences for rejecting the lordship of Jesus Christ. You may have heard people say things like, “That Christian stuff works for you, but it’s not for me. I’ll live on my own terms.” Yet Jesus’ parable of houses built on either solid rock or sand offers a different perspective (Matt. 7:24-27). Only those who make their abode in the Lord can withstand the upheavals of this world.
Kneeling before Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life is the wisest decision you can make. The sovereign Ruler of the universe loves you and desires to bless all of your days. Make your eternal home in the safety of His kingdom, and forever delight in Him.
2 Corinthians 4:5
For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
2 Corinthians 5:15
And he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
IT IS WELL. GOD BLESS
