Don’t compromise your relationship | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Amazingly the subject of compromise extends to relationships and marriages. Let’s just say it cuts across board and in one way or the other, people daily compromise. Now I think it’s important to also see the compromise in the relationship or how we are even opening up the doors for …

Identity Crisis in your relationship or marriage | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

There too many problems that people in relationships and marriages are facing that they are not supposed to be facing. When you ask some couples what the problems are, you will be amazed at the little things they are fighting over. You will wonder why they fight over very negligible …

Customer Service is not regular emails and SMS │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

The customer service week has come and gone but I did observe something all through the week from many businesses especially the banks. Many of them were kind enough to send series of emails and text messages as they are always quick to do around the festive periods or when …

The Nigeria of my dream {An exporting nation} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

We have a lot of lessons to learn from nations like Singapore that have no natural resources yet produce so much for their local consumption. We must learn from China as well and think about how a nation like China can be a threat to the US economy. In Nigeria, …

The Nigeria of my dream {Citizens with renewed mindset} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

Every nation building effort might come to nothing in any nation when the mindset of the citizens does not change or is not being constantly renewed. A different mindset is one of the most important things that this nation needs to move forward. When you listen to some people you …

The Nigeria of my dream {A detribalized nation} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

It’s been 100 years since the nation began to exist as Nigeria after the almagamation of the Northern and the Southern protectorate by Frederick Lord Lugard. Many have argued that it was against our wishes that we were joined together in those years. Some other people have said that the …

The Nigeria of my dream {Emergence of Selfless leaders} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

The Nigeria of my dream {A functional government system} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

Over the years I think several other people in the country have come to also accept the fact that my dear country has stronger individuals than institutions. In the beginning it was not so! We used to have very strong institutions that produced people of high integrity. There was no …

The Nigeria of my dream {Funding for businesses} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

On the independence day of this year, 2013, I stayed glued to my radio and listened to several callers share what they felt about the country. Obviously too many people were disappointed but by virtue of religious inclination or natural faith, some people like me still saw and also professed …

The Nigeria of my dream {Electricity} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

One of the worst nightmares of anyone living or doing business in this country is the erratic power supply that we all have to deal with. We have been living with these for several years and we still have this situation unsolved because of the greed of a few people. …

The Nigeria of my dream {Infrastructure} │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

There is no nation that can exist without being a burden to itself when it does not have the necessary Infrastructure in place for its citizens. I am writing this at a time when my dear country is celebrating its 53rd independence and I must say it is very disheartening …

Since it is the independence anniversary of my great country, I would like to crave the indulgence of my international readers or followers to tackle a few issues on the home front. After all, there is a common saying in my local language which can be interpreted as ‘you can’t …
