It is a new week and it sure is loaded with numerous opportunities that are up for grabs. A lot of people failed because they chose not to make do with the opportunities presented before them.
Opportunities are everywhere and you will be doing yourself a whole lot of good if you recognize the one that best fits your situation and would ease your troubles.
When a given opportunity is handled carelessly and eventually lost, retrieving it is really going to be difficult. To be on the safe side, grab every opportunity that comes your way and do so judiciously.
For those who have not been able to achieve anything since the beginning of the year, note that the year is running pretty fast and it is not going to wait for you.
The best you can do is to make amends and correct the ‘extreme laziness syndrome’ that’s eating deep into you. Put effort into doing what is expected of you.
The Ordinary President also implored Leaders not to see their present positions as rights but rather as a privilege given to them. When it is seen as a privilege, the desire to deliver appropriate results will be conceived.
Many times, the reason for ineffective leadership is greed and selfishness. That is, after assuring the masses and promising infrastructures, these people on a second thought rather put their interest at heart instead of thinking of the needs of the masses that elected them into office.
He further stated that Nigerians should be careful not to be lured into paying the N50 POS charges because some stores and filling stations are yet to adhere to the CBN guideline.
Mrs. Harrison is a widow whose late husband worked at NDLEA during his lifetime. She said since 2011 when she lost her husband, she had not been able to access his gratuity as she’s being tossed around at the NDLEA office.
She said some of the staff even instigated that before she gets the money, she needs to agree that the money will be shared share into equal amount where just a part will go to her.
She refused this and said her kids are not the only children owned by her late husband, that is, he has a daughter born by another woman and so she is advocating for the money to be released so that all the children can benefit greatly from their late father’s gratuity as it will go a long way to catering for specific and important needs.
The Ordinary President warned people against denying a late relative’s children and wife access to their father’s property or entitlement. This is a very rampant situation in different parts of the world today.
When someone dies, his relative ignores the fact that he has children and a wife who would live on whatever he’s left behind.
They are always bent on denying them access to these things with claims like, ‘it’s our brother’s property’ or someone saying, ‘I deserve more than he gave because I sacrificed a whole lot for him so I would take all he has’.
These people exhibit selfishness and greed without considering the immediate family that’s mourning the loss of their loved one. He said those who do this evil are only incurring the wrath of God because God thinks about those at loss and he understands why their loved one had to go at that time.
He encouraged Mrs. Harrison and asked her to keep the faith as he believes that in no time, things will work out as she desires it to. She lamented how she struggles to get her children in school so that they can become great individuals in life.
