TEMPLATE ON HOW TO POSITION ONESELF FOR MORE RELEVANCE AFTER YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE: THE DR BARRISTER ROTIMI ADEYEMI EXAMPLE

  TEMPLATE ON HOW TO POSITION ONESELF FOR MORE RELEVANCE AFTER YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE:    THE DR BARRISTER ROTIMI ADEYEMI    There is time for everything under the Sun: time to be born, time to die, time of joy and of sadness, time to take and to give, time to start and time to end etc. Everything under the has its allotted time.   The above passage taken from the Holy Writ best summarises the life of every mortal. This has nothing to do with education, wealthy, position, religion etc. It is the lot of all of us.    Every peregrination of man commences sometime and somewhere. When the then young, bubbling and energetic Rotimi Adeyemi joined the public service in those days and came round, people used to call him wolewole. It was a derogatory word used to describe sanitary inspectors. They were popular on account of their notoriety for making life difficult for landlords and occupants of unhygienic  surroundings. People saw them as burdensome, pokenosing people. Aside that, they were n

BARRISTER KEHINDE ADELEYE: SUCCESS STORY BUTTRESSES JOURNEY OF LIFE IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT.

   BARRISTER KEHINDE ADELEYE: SUCCESS STORY BUTTRESSES JOURNEY OF LIFE IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT. "Out of a dozen men with bright ideas, at most only one gets them executed."   Whatever the situation is, man has opportunities. In time of plenty there are, in time of scarcity, there are, in time oppression there are. Mention the situation, opportunity always avail us of itself. These opportunities are two fold: one is for growth and the other for stagnation. Growth or progress, whichever you choose to call it, does not come easy or cheap; it exerts and drains energy, money and time. I must not forget that in order to accomplish anything worthwhile, you have to be ambitious and determined also. On the other hand, an individual, who opts for stagnation need not worry. All he needs is to wake up, live his life without having a goal, vision or ambition. Just like animals. Thereby, he will end up becoming nothing. Why? He has not paid any price for anything to improve his life o

Governor Lucky Ayedatiwa has approved the establishment of schools that will combine acquisition of skills with theoretical knowledge. Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Pastor Emmanuel Igbasan stated this while playing to the executive members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) Irele Local Government Area in his office. Igbasan said the schools would train students on various modern skills such as building technology, mechanical, electrical and structural engineering, entertainment, fashion designing, welding and others.    "The new education curriculum tagged Technical/Grammar Schools model is designed in such a way that it will revolutionise our education system. By the time a student finishes eleven years of education, he would have been equipped with a skill that he can fall back on and make a living, even without advancing to the university. Such students can apply for loans to set up a factory and government will help out"     According to him, Niger

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO KAYODE AKINMADE, THE INFORMATION MANAGER PER EXCELLENCE.

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO KAYODE AKINMADE, THE INFORMATION MANAGER PER EXCELLENCE. "The real worth of every individual lies in his forte." Life offers man and woman opportunities. These provide us  avenues to show our hidden potentials and true colours. Leadership position exposes man as it brings to the fore his temperament, managerial prowess as well as ability to withstand and contain pressure. Position also exposes the level of greed in us. Position not only promotes; it equally destroys man's name. It depends on how he allows the position to get into his head. It is up to him; use it to serve or butter his own bread at the expense of others.     Kayode Akinmade's rising profile as a trust worthy image maker is becoming a standard yardstick for public relations practitioners and students. Since he was appointed Special Adviser on Media and Strategy, to the then Speaker of the House of Representatives, his services has continued to be sought after. That was between 2007 a

A GOOD WOMAN IS THE CROWN OF HER HUSBAND'S HEAD: ADERONKE ADUNOLA ASAOLU A SYMBOL.

 A GOOD WOMAN IS THE CROWN OF HER HUSBAND'S HEAD: ADERONKE ADUNOLA ASAOLU A SYMBOL.  "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies."        People meet; we come across one another, one way or the other: through others, at events, congregational meetings and other places and avenues. We bumped into ourselves. We become close friends thereby. Love affairs, loose and even siamese-like relationships develop therefrom. And on the negative side, enmity also develops as an aftermath of initial meetings. You get to meet some and get magnetized by their charm, vivacity or intelligence etc. There are others you encounter and you are left with no impression whatsoever. They are just as any other person, out there. These ones have deeper inner qualities of character, discipline, integrity and commitment, as well as understanding of life. It takes getting closer to discover all these traits.    Adunola Aderonke Asaolu belongs to the latter group. I, as mos

AKURE OBASHIP: OBA AGUNSOYEBIOYINBO ADEMUAGUN ADESIDA 11 BROUGHT CLASS AND DIGNITY TO THE THRONE

      AKURE OBASHIP: OBA AGUNSOYEBIOYINBO ADEMUAGUN ADESIDA 11 BROUGHT CLASS AND DIGNITY TO THE THRONE                 By Sunday Ajibola There are men and there are men. Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights. Certain men understand that position is an opportunity to etch their names in gold and put such in the same of time.   It is exactly fifty years today that the 42nd Deji of Akure, late Oba Agunsoyebioyinbo Ademuagun Adesida 11 joined his ancestors. That fateful day was Sunday and in the evening; darkness was just enveloping the city. It was the strange shouts of "opo ye o, opo ye o, opo ye o", that prompted me to rush out of our house at Oke aro. I saw people running helter, skelter. I did not bother about them. I was looking for the "electric
