Now I'm beginning to wonder if people would ever believe any comedian sincerely aspiring for any position in government.People take anything they say as joke. Imagine after breaking the news of Helen Paul's baby delivery, I received funny responses from fans.

"is that the title of her new skit?"

"Is she married...?"

"that small girl, so she is married?"

"how come she got pregnant when she's not even married?"

"that girl with that little voice abi? I didn't know she was pregnant o. I saw her on Jara yesterday na...?

Transformational Leader, Dr. Myles Munroe Killed In Bahamas Plane Crash




Prolific best selling author and internationally renowned preacher and business coach, Dr. Myles Munroe of Bahamas Faith Ministries International and his wife Mrs. Ruth Ann Munroe, died in a plane crash earlier today in the Bahamas.

Dr. Myles Munro and Mrs. Ruth Ann Munroe
According to The Associated Press, the plane, a Lear executive jet, reportedly struck a crane at the Grand Bahama Ship Yard, exploding on impact and crashing into the ground near a junkyard area.

Bahamas Ministry of Transport and Aviation reported that the Lear 36 executive jet departed the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) in Nassau, Bahamas at 4:07PM for the Grand Bahama International Airport, a privately owned international airport in Freeport, Bahamas with nine people on board.

 The plane crashed while making an approach for landing at Grand Bahama International Airport at 5.10pm, the Ministry of Transport and Aviation said.

The crash killed all nine people on board the private jet. The identities of the other people on board have not yet been confirmed. The cause of the crash was not immediately determined, though there had been heavy rain across the region. A full investigation is expected to begin on Monday.

The crash occurred as people were gathering in Grand Bahama for Dr. Munroe’s 2014 Global Leadership Forum which starts tomorrow, November, 10. Former mayor of Atlanta and former U.S Ambassador to the United Nations, Andrew Young scheduled to speak at the popular leadership forum, released the following statement through his foundation: “Ambassador Young expresses his deep sadness over the tragic death of his friends Dr. Myles and Mrs. Ruth Munroe. He offers condolences to the Munroe family and the families of the other souls who lost their lives as a result of this shocking plane crash.”
Africa’s richest woman and oil mogul, Mrs. Folorunso Alakija is also expected to speak at the leadership forum.

Known for his work and teachings on leadership, purpose and maximizing your potential, vision, individual and national transformation, Dr. Munroe was the senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship, where his wife, Ruth Ann, served as co-senior pastor. They leave behind two children, daughter, Charisa and son, Chairo (Myles Jr.) Munroe.

BE REAL


 





A time will come, the old man told me, when what you write would be read around the world. But the burden is heavy, he said, as you will need to speak truth to all men and women and be fair to all of them at the same time.

Simon Ateba
You will meet many writers along the way, but only one out of ten thousand would rise above biases, above their country, their continent, their tribe, their religion, race and themselves. The old man left and that time is yet to come. But as I look back, I begin to understand why I have friends around the world. It is not because I told them I own a private jet or live in the best part of town. It is not even because I told them I live a perfect life. It is simply because I got tired of living a fake make believe type of life. It is because I realised that no matter how rich, handsome, intelligent or pious a man is, the same fate awaits us all. So let's be real, let's be happy with or without a car. Let's make the best out of our lives with what we have. 

You know, I have lived long enough and got white hair by the way, to know that whether here in Ikeja area of Lagos, western Nigeria, where I am writing this, or over there wherever you're reading it, the truth remains that in life, when we are gone, only the lives we have touched will remember us long after our cars and jets had been forgotten.

Be Responsible

#----A NEW BEGINNING----#
Good Morning. How was your night? Wonderful, I thought.

What a new day, the beginning of a new work-week which symbolizes the start of a new reality.

A new reality! Yes, a new habit of personal vision. Know that yesterday is gone forever, it is now in the past. Don't allow the road blocks of yesterday truncate the journey towards the realisation of your goals.

Be Responsible for your vision. I mean be PROACTIVE.
You have the ability to choose your response in whatever situation you encounter today. You carry your own weather - whether it rains or shines makes no difference to you.

Do not base your emotional life on the moods or weaknesses of others, but upon your self-chosen values, your behaviour should be a product of your own conscious choices based on principles, rather than a product of your conditions, based on feelings.

Focus your time and energy on things you can control rather than reacting to or worrying about conditions over which you have little or no control.

In so doing, you become RESPONSE-ABLE at work, in your marriage, in your neighbourhood and wherever you are today.

Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
Al hamdu lillaahi rabbil ‘alameen

In the name of God, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful.
Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds.
The Compassionate, the Merciful. Ruler on the Day of Reckoning.
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.
Amen.
