Morino: I think my team have all it takes to win the league.
Arsen Wenga: From the way we played last season I am very much convinced that we can challenge for the league.
Morino: I hate it when people say and think of things they know is not possible. How do you win the league when you don’t buy players?
Arsen Wenga: When most people don’t talk they tend to develop mouth odour. So, I wouldn’t want to blame anybody who says that I don’t sign players. I don’t only sign players but I do sign world class players.
Morino: Oh! Do you mean world class players from world class academies?
Arsen Wenga: Yes of course. Including Peter Cech- a world class player from a world class academy.
Nigerian politicians are very inspiring and this makes them good role models but most persons would love to deny this fact and concentrate solely on their bad side which is mainly because all they want is to see them fail. In this post, I’m going to be sharing some of the qualities of a typical Nigerian politician that any wise motivational speaker would urge you to possess in order to achieve success in life. They are:
OPTIMISM: I was taken aback in the previous election held when I noticed that those who contested for the presidency was over thirty in number and most of them could not even poll up to five thousand votes nationwide. Interestingly, before the election one of the candidates that fell into this category was asked- “do you see yourself winning?” His reply was a bold yes and I was force to consider him to be a force to reckon with. Although he never won but the confidence level was something else. Optimism is expecting a bigger miracle in the face of a big obstacle.
SENSITIVITY: Nigeria politicians do not need proofs to believe whatever they think because the just know it but just wait for them to go and get proofs. Sensitivity needs no proofs before believing, it believes before proving.
PERSISTENCE: I love this one so much cos we see so many politicians coming back to re-contest again and again despite all their previous failures. Success will always come to ex-failures who decided not to quit.
IMPORTUNITY: This is very much connected to their persistent nature and it happens to be the main reason why the court of appeals happen to declare the winners of over 99.9% of all the electoral positions. In fact, the opposition on the losing side must go to court. Yes.Quiters don’t win and winners quit only after winning.
STRONG: To be a politician in Nigeria, you must be ready to be criticized, insulted, envied, attacked etc. Only the strong can struggle, the weak get strangled.
REALISTIC: Most persons do not like facing reality when it matters most but Nigerian politicians would always set up a committee to look into the problem at hand before saying, “let’s go back to the drawing board”.With detailed facts, you prevail but without details, you remain detained in your travail.
HOPE RAISERS: The only reason why people commit suicide is hopelessness. With Nigerian politicians, be sure of a reduction in suicidal rate because they can take your hopes over the moon with euphony by promising a future flowing with milk and honey. The gift of hope is the strength to cope.
VOCAL AND LOUD: Argument and war of words forms the order of the day in Nigeria’s polity. Hence black can be yellow at any point. Voicelessness is choicelessness. If you can’t talk your way out, you will be worked out.
EVERYTHING COUNTS ATTITUDE: This is bad but good too. No matter how small a contract or an opportunity might be a Nigerian politician won’t let go. Every small addition is more.
HUMBLE: Those guys are extremely humble no wonder they can run, re-run, return, run again and re-run again for a particular position without saying, “Hey, I’m bigger than that position, I’ve been there twice”. At times, they go as far as contesting for less prestigious positions.The lowly can never be lowered, they can only be hired.
I just have to end here, but believe me, there are more qualities you can be copied [positively] from Nigerian politicians for your own good.
Out of All listed, please comment one that makes the most sense to you. Please share. Thanks
Your position at the end of a race or a journey is what determines whether it was a success or not. Starting the year on a low ebb is permitted but in finishing, you ought to finish strong. You don’t wanna look back and say- “had I known”.
The end of the year is normally associated with lots of financial favours, bonuses and the likes and I want to use this post to suggest how you can make the most of all your income this season and make the year a memorable one. So what are those things?
CLEAR ALL DEBTS: A life without debts is a life without fear or hypertension. Whenever you’re indebted, you lose you peace, freedom and dignity. I believe nothing will make you happier this season than clearing all your debt load. Even if you can’t clear it up, try to slash the magnitude.
EMBARK ON A TRIP: Not just any trip but a special one where you can make new friends, take photos, learn something new… preferably in an exotic location.
CREATE A SPECIAL EVENT: Have you ever thought of creating a special event that you would live to remember? Okay let me give you ideas- your first date, your first flight, your first cruise…
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY: The happiest days of my life or should I say the happy days of my life are those spent with my immediate family. No matter how difficult your family might be, they can never be more difficult than anywhere else. Spending quality time with YOUR FAMILY at the end of the year is something to look forward to and it will be more fun if you can bring back the memories of the good times you had with them at your prime. MAKE OTHERS HAPPY: Whatever you do for yourself dies with you but what you do for others lives on after you. In the midst of the fun that the season offers, always remember that there is some hearts out there that need to be touched, some bodies that need clothing, some stomachs also needs to be fed. You can always be useful to others and also note that there is joy in creating joy. If you still think making other people can’t add anything to you, it’s because you’ve never put a smile on someone’s face.
A SPECIAL BUY: I don’t really buy the idea of buying here and there. It’s so childish! What’s that thing you’ve always wanted, hoped, prayed or begged for? Something that will shapen your life, ease all your struggles, last a lifetime with your heart… Go get it now.

Everywhere, everybody, and every scent just got smelling like christmas and I know you’re really enjoying the entire fun and excitement. Merry Christmas!
I just wonder if you have ever looked back and remembered any little mistake you’ve done in past that turned your christmas celebration into nightmares? Learning through experience remains the most expensive way of learning and that’s why I’ve come up with this post to expose to you some nasty stuff that could spoil the memory of the whole season for you. Here are they:
BAD COOKING: Being fearless when it comes to cooking is not a bad idea but I don’t think it’s safe for your bravery to show up during season because when it happens there might be little or nothing you can do about it. I don’t know what to call a christmas without good food. Christmas shouldn’t be the time for try out new recipes. Please do everything the way you know to do it and after the season, you can be the brave cook you’ve always dreamed to be.
EXCESSIVE DRINKING: If there is anyday everybody wants to make longer, it has to be christmas but getting yourself drunk is the easiest way of shortening it. You might just wake up a day after christmas or new year day to find out that your celebration lasted for just two hours. And what about the things you did and the ones you said in your drunk state? How shameful!
FIREWORK FEVER: Even a mad man knows what fire is hence he doesn’t go close to it. Fireworks can kill, destroy and burn up your properties so handle with care. Once upon a time at xmas, a guy lit a banger in his mouth in the mode of a cigarette. Everyone watched him nervously as he allowed the whole thing blow off and he had a lot of thumbs up for it. Okay. A guy nearby tried to do it too but it took only the first bang to destroy all his…
WRONG SHOPPING: The spirit of christmas makes everything beautiful but that doesn’t mean you should buy everything you see. While shopping this season, please think beyond it- all the lights, flowers, trees, do you really need them? You don’t want to finish shopping and become broke during the celebration or in the new year ahead. I personally rate my christmas success level based on the amount I am able to save.
For your clothing, buy quality instead of quantity. Be uniquely different. Don’t buy clothes en vogue before you find yourself wearing what every other person is wearing. Just try to imagine a situation where you with all your swag and seething, walk into a five year old putting on the clothes as you’re while running and jumping after santa or a very big masquerade along the streets of Nigeria. #goBackHomeAndChange
DRESSING: We all know christmas is a day everyone is expected to look good, beautiful, well dressed and watched up at limehouse reach so I’m not going to be dwelling on that but I want to share with you a dumb mistake my sister made some years ago. She just returned from her christmas outing that evening supposedly her best ever and she shared her experiences with us happily with so great enthusiasm but it all died down the next morning after making a shocking discovery. Could you believe this girl wore her new dress out without detaching the label?
