Go the Extra mile

An important principle of success in all walks of life and in all occupations is a willingness to ” Go The Extra Mile “; which means the rendering of more and better service than that for which one is paid, and giving it in a positive mental attitude. Search wherever you will for a single sound argument against this principle and you will not find it, nor will you find a single instance of enduring success, which was not attained in part by its application. We would love to share a story with you and we hope you will in some small way benefit from this story… Sometime last year, I was working as a barber somewhere on the Island. It was a hectic Friday and at 5:55 pm (5 minutes before closing), this man walked in. I told him that we already closed (shame on me). He said that he had to fly out that evening for a meeting tomorrow morning in Abuja, and he needed his hair done (his hair was a whole lot of mess), and our shop was the only place that was still opened. My colleagues were already “cutting eye for me” from the back, ...

“N-Power” FG Introduces a job creation and empowerment initiative

N-Power is a job creation and empowerment initiative of the Social Investment Programme of the Federal Government of Nigeria. N-Power is designed to help young Nigerians acquire and develop life-long skills to become solution providers in their communities and to become players in the domestic and global markets. Through N-Power, young Nigerians will be empowered with the necessary tools to go on and create, develop, build, fix and work on exceptional ideas, projects and enterprises that will change our communities, our economy and our nation. The N-Power programme is for all eligible Nigerians looking to work gainfully. However, the initial programmes have been designed for young Nigerians between the ages of 18 and 35. THE N-POWER STRATEGY For any country, skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development. Countries with higher and better levels of skills adjust more effectively to the challenges and opportunities of the world of work. Despite the great level of unemployment, Nigeria has the advantage of demographic edge given that a significant proportion of the population is young. Harnessing the demographic edge through appropriate skill development efforts would provide an opportunity to achieve inclusion and productivity within the country. Large-scale skill ...

Ex-Queen of Drugs Speaks With The Bi Empowerment Team

Abbey, a pleasant young lady with a great smile, is someone I met at a women’s meeting where she shared her story. It was like watching a Nigerian home video, and I just could not get over the fact that it was indeed real. I got an appointment with her, and she didn’t mind sharing her story with the BI Empowerment team to help inspire the youths. BI Team: “Thank you Ms. Abbey for the opportunity, Can we get to know you”? Abbey: “I am Abiodun Bello, the fifth child from my father, and the second child from my mother. You can say I am a half caste; a Nigerian half caste (laughing), partly Delta, partly Yoruba. BI Team:  “Can you tell us a little bit about growing up?” Abbey: “I went to school like every other child, even though it was not the way I wanted to be. You see, I was treated like an outcast even in my father’s house by my step mum”. BI Team:  “Would you say your rough childhood pushed you into drugs?” Abbey: “I was deprived of a lot of things including food, I actually grew up in a home where we had everything ...
