1. LAW OF PURPOSE

Before 2015 starts take some time out to play back what you’ve achieved this year and then as a progression write down and memorize what you want for 2015. If you don’t know and define where you are going, then everywhere you get to would look like it. 2015 should be a year of deep discoveries for you. This is because a great life is lived inside-out, from you to others. Find yourself, and empty it in the service of others and you’ll succeed. It is one that can turn mirrors into windows In 2015 – START RIGHT, CHART YOUR COURSE.

2. THE LAW OF VISION

In 2015, if you’d be limited, it will not be by your abilities, but by – YOUR VISION. Have a big picture of what you want at the end of 2015 before it even starts and then ensure that there is a progressive realization of each of those set goals. Its vital that you do this.

OPEN LETTER TO GENERAL MUHAMMAD BUHARI, GCON
Dear General,
I wish to congratulate you on winning the presidential ticket of your party, the APC. A lot has been said about you- the good, the bad and the ugly but only God is the judge of all men. For the fourth time, you are throwing your hat in the ring to aspire to lead this nation after you led as a military ruler between 1983 and 1985. I was very young during your first outing but I still remember vividly that my grandfather had a War Against Indiscipline (WAI) sticker behind his Peugeot 504 wagon, a constant reminder to all Nigerians then to be upright and disciplined. That sticker remains the most I remember of you at that tender age.
The rest of your actions I later learnt during my study as a communications student. Your actions were described in textbooks and lectures as inhumane, sordid and wicked, especially the way you clamped journalists and politicians in jail. I kind of agreed with my lecturer’s and reports back then that you are one wicked soul. But these days, I have come to realize that your inability to continue as president then have done more harm to us as a people than the harm experienced during your stay in office.
