Every new opportunity you get should be geared towards self-development; put effort into doing it as life progresses. If you are not useful to yourself, you’ll find it hard to serve others responsibly.
You should also note that it is wrong to feel entitled to any help offered to you. People would help you but you should not see it a right or entitlement else you’ll lose it as a whole.

A man shared his near-death experience during the course of the program. According to him, he left Human Rights radio on the 23rd December 2019 after benefitting from the Ordinary President’s Christmas bonus.
He stood by the roadside while waiting for a cab and after a short while; he flagged a cab and told the driver he was going to Maraba. He was told his fare is N2500 but after haggling the price, the driver agreed to take N2000.
As they were going, the driver told him his own phone was missing and the search began but unfortunately for him, he became unconscious until he opened his eyes to find himself lying by the roadside on the 24th December.
People passed him by and assumed he got drunk and fell by the roadside. Meanwhile, the driver had robbed him and left him there. Luck shined on him when a good Samaritan; a woman came to his aid and realized that he wasn’t drunk.
She helped take him to the hospital where he was treated. It is evident that he was hypnotized. The ordinary President cautioned everyone and said they should be mindful of the vehicles they’ll flag down.
He is fortunate to have survived the experience. He pleaded that anyone who helps him find his bag should return it as it contains important documents.
The Chairman Minister’s Task Team on Traffic Management, Attah Iharo shared his experience in the hands of hoodlums when he went about his official duties. He came in company of the Director Department of Outdoor Advertisement Assignment, Dr. Babagana Adam.
Mr. Attah said Dr. Babagana intercepted and reported that an altercation was going on between Revenue Collectors and APCON. Before then, there had been an argument over who had the right to take revenue.
These people (those taking advertisement permit fee) were eventually beaten to a pulp; in fact, the term used for Dr. Babagana was that he should be wasted.
