Aduni

Written: Seye Adenle

Aduni (As the name implies, “Sweet to have”)

You are never tired
Nor weakened
The pride in you keep bursting
You are truly a beauty
Thus parade yourself with dignity
The sun cool her head
Rains ignite fire in her
Yet her heart is ever settled

In that little space of gold
She embraces with smile
All to you make meaning
Both fools and the wise
Only time and chance
Make the difference

She sees her lifetime
As. Enough time
She seize the moment
To secure the coming days
Casting no plague of condemnation

Her resources was not an excuse
She feign blindness
Plays deaf to any barriers

She opined;
You can’t be everybody
So,make a difference
Better you sell bread
Than to cry foul
You should rather
Ben down select
Than be selected for crime

She is courageous
Committed to her dealings
Like a thread
In many storms
She is full oh hope
Like a rainbow
She conform to many colours

As a wife
She welcomes all
Like a queen
She dazzles all with her smiles
Like the goddess of luck
She attracts fortune
To herself and all around

Permit me to call her
Moremi
She is the good
That make men call
Beauty good
She is the honour
Fathers desires in daughter
Best companion to any friend
Your mother would never
Seize to sing-praise you,
Even in the life beyond

Your acts are wonderful
You are an envy of wonder
That should not be subjected
To any kind of
Molestations

Inside of you is grace
You have passion
You have strength
You are truly my Aduni
So rare amongst maiden
Is the splashing
Of your dainty beauty

In hard and soft days
Your faith never fails
You give
And never fed up
Beautiful you is my Aduni
Who never shivered
When am alone in thought
You deserve the best in
My world

Thank you, mother
You are sweet to have
To care and and adored

God bless Mrs Mojisola Adenle
My sweet Aduni
I love you mum

EKO (Lagos)

By: Seye Adenle

The air we breathe in you
is enough for us all
To search and fix
the dream we hope to live in
You are the smallest
Very tiny and cunning
But your belly remains wide to house many

Time seems changing
But you remain the same
In your daily routine
I have lost, millions of time
All the scenes centred in you alone
Like the great city of California
You remains an ever wonder

You berth countless giants
Handles higher percents of your mother’s fortunes
It’s you I look up to
But can all be your friend?
Should all rest on your shoulder?
You let me down for long
I keep my toes on the run

Lords of lands gat no ease
It was never cool to hold the key
At 56, Mr. Alade still keeps dwelling
Behind a single door and a tiny window

He hardly breathes
Yet still gazing
On the brighter sides of life

You are beautiful, no doubt
Very fancy in outlook
Your beauty is as arnica
aureate in a manner all continues to imagined

I’ll be a au pair
To Chief Mrs toke
She’ll take care of me
Look after my care
True to my reasoning
All I got in return
A disdainful treatment
Diary of a village girl in city

Ali, Adamu, Uche and Effiong
All made it
So this was how?
Yes it is!
But tell no one
Because if the village cheifs know
Probably he won’t let you
Hmmm. I see

Truly Eko, this is who you are
I’ll won’t tell my mother
Neither will I revealed to my father
That his charming prince
Laid under the bridge
That asake clean shoes
This was what
she choose

I woke in the earliest hour
Sleep the latest hour
Eat like servants
Defiance to the live I knew
You need not to sweat to swallow
3 times is a necessity
But eko gives me new formula

Please answer me
Make the path to know you smooth
Filled my pouch
So my old woman suffers not
All waiting for me at home
I miss my home

Otherwise I pack my bag
I will be gone
But I made a resolution within
To ride on horses with them
To be on the front page
Soon, I’ll Make an headlines
With or without you

I loves you
You remain my crush!

MOSHOOD MUHAMMED VISITS SPECIAL STUDENTS IN ENUGU

Human development is the greatest investment we can make as a people.

Today, I was at the Vocational Rehabilitation Center in Enugu and made little donation to the special students. Those wonderful guys made me accept Chukwuemeka as my Igbo name, after several attempts by friends fell on the deaf ears. I’d told them I preferred Emekachuckwu, which they told me wasn’t correct.

The centre is very popular but little has been done to help the cause of students in the school. I made effort to get things turned around, but nothing has come up till now. And time is not my friend (as a Corps member). But if assistance come, which I’m still pursuing, I’ll see to it.

At present, the center houses these special people, train them in various vocations so they could become entrepreneurs. The sad thing is, most of their training equipment are far from useful while some of their hostels need urgent attention. Still, the management works round the clock to keep the school running.

The students sew their own clothes, make their shoes among others.

I wish well meaning Nigerians could look the direction of these people, support their determination for self sufficiency and financial independence when most of their colleagues have made our streets their homes, begging for alms and engaging in other unworthy acts.

If you know anyone who can help, kindly SHARE this message with such people. Let’s take some of our special breed off the streets and integrate them properly for our common good.

Let’s not abandon them.

THIS Niger Area!

By: Seye Adenle

E don tey we dey this struggle
Yet the nation never bubble
This colonial container
Don tire to suffer

But e be like say we self no bother
Help us ask our prefects
Cheif servants messengers
Why dem no dey see beyond
Their nose

We dey sell am out
We dey smuggle am
Everybody turn smugglers
We dey theif our own oil

We too big to be an entity
Gladiators say na lie
Oyinbo join us together
Say make we be in unity
Sake of say wetin dem see

How that go be?
Wey resources no equal
Wey ideology no alligns
Argument upon argument
Birth many coup
Many people too Ku
The situation no cool
We see palace coup
Counter coup
Phantom coup

Boot and beret too enjoy power
With force
Who go talk where gun dey?
Agbada vex say e want show
By all means kahaki clear chance
Since e enter power Neva balance

We are back to the same struggle
E still dey cause cassala
All of us get the national rice
But when we go come rise
When few hold spoons
Feed us with remnants

Dem say youth na future leader
Only them dey climb ladder
Them eat all we have today
Say make we hope for tomorrow
Where dem put us

Dem build fine fine house
With tall fence
Mr landlord dey fear
E no want make person
Thief wetin dem theif
Thief dey fear thief

Every person get dem government
To provide food for him family

Every person get him government
To provide food and shelter

I say every house get government
To provide generator bulb and noise

Every person get government
To provide health care
To provide schooling for
Them children

Oyinbo no tire to dey watch our game
Them say we be terrorists
Dem say we too corrupts
Dem say we too dull
We dey import toothpick
Join our problems
Dem say we no dey think

Only ogas
Dem dey pick all the fish
Say make we dey solve this equation

Natural resources plus human resources minus common sense is equal to human disaster
Revolution is near,it’s here and its now

God bless my country!

You & I can build a better Nation

CORPS MEMBER TASKS SCHOOLS ON NATIONAL DIGNITY, DONATES NIGERIAN FLAGS

A Corps member identified as Ajadi Samsideen has encouraged schools in the country to imbibe the good use of national identity.

He made the call during a sensitization programme he organized as part of his Community Development Service Project as a corps member serving in Kogi state. He also donated flags to some schools in the area.

The seminar, titled “National Symbols: Pride of Our Country”, held at Government Day Secondary School, Iruvucheba, Okene recently.
Mr. Ajadi observed that many schools in the community hung shabby flags while many did not have any to display.

According to him, “It sadden my heart to see our schools such tattered and rag-like flag hung”.

A former Chairman of Okene Local Government, Alhaji Al-Rasheed, while speaking during the event attributed the lack of attention given to the national identity to hunger and non payment of salaries in the state.
He noted that unhappy family and unpaid workers will never remember that a flag is dirty.

He advised chools to ensure they contribute positively to this disturbing situation of the country.

Another corps member who was present at the event, Oyeyipo Oluwasegun said that schools should do more to enlighten people and students on the significance of National symbols.

“Our national symbol is what we have to sell to the outside world. Our schools must do well to educate the people on what the Nigerian national symbols stand for And this can only be done when the those identifies are in good condition.” he added.

Students and staff members of schools in the area were present during the seminar while he schools representatives received the brand new flag on behalf of their schools.

CORPS MEMBER LAUNCHES “STAND WITH NIGERIA” CAMPAIGN IN ENUGU

The “Stand With Nigeria” campaigners on Tuesday, 31st of October  had a formal lecture where roles of youths in leadership and governance were redefined. The event was well attended and reported on Radio Nigeria, Enugu National service on Frequency Modulation 92.9. Below is a very similar trans copy of the news report as filed by Edith Ajah;

 

A corps member serving in Enugu State, yesterday, Tuesday, 31st of October, launched a “Stand With Nigeria” Campaign, hash tagged “StandWith9ja” in the state.

The event with the theme; “Making of A New Nigeria: The Youth Agenda” was held at the Enugu North Local Government Secretariat’s City Hall with government officials and other dignitaries in attendance.

The corps member, Moshood Muhammed with the state code EN/16B/4959, it was learnt started the campaign as a personal Community Development Service effort until some of his colleagues adopted the ideology and joined the movement.

Speaking during the event, the Assistant Director, NYSC, Enugu State, Mr. Ernest Ebekine charged Nigerian youths to continue to work together for the development of the nation by ensuring they do the right thing at all time.

According to him, he was happy a corps member in the state could think of how to sensitize others to have the right thinking attitude, cause change so as to move Nigeria forward.

In his words, “I feel so glad that one of our corps member initiated this idea. This is a right step in the right direction because through this programme, a change will occur and our country, Nigeria, will move forward”.

The State Director of National Orientation Agency, Mr. Isaac Onukwube lauded the initiative and encouraged the corps members present to always present the country in good light.

He added that event as such should be embraced by many as it would help redirection of grievance registration by youths and other stakeholders in the country, rather than causing mayhems.

In his remark, a guest speaker at the occasion, the immediate past Commissioner for Human Capital Development and Poverty Reduction in Enugu state, Mr. Godwin Ogenyi maintained that youths should aim at making Nigeria better through their creative abilities.

While lauding the initiative of the corps member and his colleagues who put the programme together, the former commissioner charged them to equip themselves with necessary skills, and do away with the usual complaints about what is not good about the country.

He noted that opportunities only come to those who are prepared for it.

Mr. Ogenyi said; “What we are doing today is an idea of a young man, who has decided to redefine the kind of Nigeria we want to see, to consider those things we need to be able to do this. Obviously, he (Muhammed) has engaged his colleagues so they can collectively challenge the ills in the society. This is good”

Earlier in his welcome address, the founder initiative, Mr. Moshood Muhammed said the aim of the programme was to encourage patriotism among Nigerians, with special focus on the youth so as to unite and move the nation to a greater height.

He added that the inauguration of volunteers became necessary owing to the need to continue the campaign beyond his service year, noting that the same campaign is currently being mobilized for in Ogun State as well as other parts of Nigeria.

Explaining the rationale behind the project, Muhammed said; “this campaign started with a view to engage the youth so as to orientate and re-orientate citizens of the country, augment the patriotism of our people so that we can collectively move this country forward.

“The country, Nigeria, cannot move forward when we are not a part of it. There is a need for us as citizens to come on board, acts responsibly and ensure they put the country first in everything we do, because there is no leadership without followership”. He noted.

Some members of the movement expressed satisfaction with success of the inauguration and extended an invitation to other youths to key into the vision of building a better nation for all. One of them, Justin Izuchukwu Okosa said; “I thank Mr. Moshood for bringing up the idea. The campaign targets the youths so we can engage the youths of the country on the need to be patriotic because when we (the youths) do the right thing, the country will move forward.”

Another participant, Kolade Tinuola, had this to say; “Most Nigerians have turned to western countries to pursue their dreams because they have lost interest. With this attitude, we would not be able to build the kind of country we seek. Everyone of us must be part of the nation building process; in Nigeria, my contemporaries should believe that we can make it and Nigeria will rise enviably. That is why we have started this campaign”

The event, which saw the inauguration of volunteers for the campaign had in attendance a member of Enugu state House of Assembly representing Ezeagwu State Constituency, Hon. Barrister Chima Obieze; Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu; Local Government Inspector of Enugu North, Mr. Maduforo Chinedu and senior officials of the NYSC in the state among others.
