“Men are Scum, Women are scum, I am done with men” – Angela Eguavoen wages war on men after Series of heartbreaks

A Nigerian lady wages war on men as she testifies that all men and women are scum. And she’s done with men.

Well, looking into the bigger picture one can truly testify boldly that she has had a difficult encounter with the female and male gender.

But the good thing about her post is that she further acknowledges that no one can do without each other. Even those who switched to the opposite gender are having their private cries that no gender is better in terms of cheating or heartbreak than the other.

Here’s what she wrote;

Men are scum! Women are scum! I am done with men. I am done with women. Las las We can’t do without each other, let’s stop deceiving ourselves; we’re stuck here together wallahi Most of you that decided to switch to the same gender have now realized that cheating/scum is even worse on the other side. Yen yen yen. Both genders are scum nor worried. Just find you a scum that’s worth it. You get it abi? Okay Bye.”

Here’s her post:

“Women look good for themselves and not to impress men” – OAP, Toke Makinwa

On air personality, Toke Makinwa has debunked the erroneous notion that ladies go extra miles to look beautiful just to impress men.

Toke Makinwa in a tweet asserted that women may actually think that their looks is not good enough and subsequently decide to work on it. This act is therefore not done to please or impress anyone, rather it is driven by the innate desire to satisfy oneself. She stated that women look good for themselves and not for any man.

In her words:

“That b**b job is not for you, maybe she loves how her b**bs look in cloths, that liposuction??? She wasn’t thinking of a man, she probably got tired of fighting fat that won’t shift. Women look good for themselves and not to impress men.”

That boob job is not for you, maybe she loves how her boobs look in cloths, that liposuction??? She wasn’t thinking of a man, she probably got tired of fighting fat that won’t shift. Women look good for themselves and not to impress men.

Young women are proving their mettle in agriculture

By Nnedinso Ogaziechi

The growth in the Nigerian national economy has been credited to agriculture which accounts for over 20% of Nigeria’s GDP. The importance of agriculture in any nation’s economy cannot be over emphasized. The  agricultural value chain in any well planned economy is a huge employer of labour and revenue earner. According to the federal Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development, women account for 75 percent of the farming population in Nigeria.  They are equally a great part of the agriculture supply chain in both the formal and informal sectors.

The role of women in the agricultural sector in the country has been very pivotal to the success of that sector principally due to their nurturing, leadership and multi-tasking nature.  However, despite their huge contributions, agriculture is somehow instinctively seen as a man’s field possibly because of socio-cultural perceptions.

However, the changing global trends have seen the younger generation of women raising the bar in a sector that often gives them less credit and support. There are more determined  female entrepreneurial players in the agricultural value chain and more and more young women are bringing their grit and industry to agriculture in ways that seem to be saying, ‘do not ignore us, even in agriculture, women leadership, industry and the ability to multitask and be optimally productive is for the good of our country’.

The RoundTable Conversation sat down with the Lagos state Commissioner for Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya who had had been called to serve from the private sector.  An Abisola came into her new role with valued and valid experience in leadership as she had been in charge of sales, marketing and supply chain management with a specialty in executing strategies towards food security, SME inclusion, growth and profitability. She comes to the job with an obvious passion for leadership excellence and service.

Abisola seems to be reaffirming the dictum that ‘when the mother goat is chewing grass, the kid watches and learns too’. Her leadership instincts obviously come from a father who is well grounded in public life and service. Her father, Asipa Laoli Olusanya was the Commissioner for Agriculture during the tenure of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as governor in Lagos.

Abisola recollects that her father had always shown leadership and loyalty as a politician and that inspired a daughter who is slowly blossoming and telling the father subtly, ‘dad, what you a man can do, I, a woman would definitely do even better’. In essence there is no gender barrier to excellence in leadership and sense of service especially when you learnt in house.

Abisola believes that coming from the corporate world having worked for eight years at Olam Ghana, her present leadership position is a call to service that demands she brings her experience from working at Olam Ghana Rice and Sugar supply business of well over 180 million dollars annually to the table of public service in Lagos state.

As one who manned the local supply chain aspect for the local market with international intelligence in making all the decisions it had to be a multi-faceted kind of role because you were dealing with global commercial partners and you had to understand prices, the weather patterns and how it is going to affect crops and the impact on importation of crops.  Having enjoyed the freedom to take the best decisions in the interest of the organization where everyone’s output was constantly monitored she came into public office hoping in her small way to impart excellence.

She is determined to make sure she inculcates that in all the staff in the agriculture ministry knowing how pivotal the ministry is to economies’ suevival. So coming into public service with her background is an opportunity to bring in the private sector added efficiency that can help people seeing that an invitation to serve is a call to service. No matter how high up in the corporate anyone is, the call to service should not be ignored and as such she feels she has been honoured with a rare opportunity to pay back and impact on a few lives.

Service is the biggest motivation to her as a person and she is happy that the governor  is very encouraging and tries to give everyone all the needed freedom to put in their best. The hunger to change what one can is a valid energizing force.  Olam Ghana is very entrepreneurial and target-driven, so coming from such an institution where your performance is measured every step of the way into the public sector inspires one to bring the best attitudes into public life. Imparting excellence, making sure numbers matter and that everyone is target- driven is a very unique and productive way of doing business and will obviously assist in serving the people.

We must learn that data is important, there must be goals to be achieved. Each department or unit must be efficiency driven. I come to work every day realizing that I am on a temporary assignment not a lifetime job. I may be asked to exit anytime and what  that implies is that I must try to utilize government resources in the most efficient way possible such that a greater number of people  would  benefit  and people feel the efficiency of the initiatives, projects and activities of government.  More people should feel the government directly through the actions we that are called to serve take.

As a young woman, I go to work every day taking advantage of the opportunity I have been given to motivate the staff in the ministry to remember that each action they take or do not take impacts on the system because when the people especially the youths are availed opportunities through our collective actions, there would be a reduction in crimes and the society would be safer and more productively stable for us all.

As a young female in public service, my advice to the youths is to go out there and seek out how they can benefits from government interventions and initiatives.  The youths have to do more research around possibilities, partnerships, synergies and initiatives by government even when this administration has always tried to put out those needed information.

I believe that to progress as a nation, we must have a strict value reorientation. Leadership should neither be gender nor age specific and the governor of Lagos Babajide Sanwo-Olu has proved that by the number of women and young people like me who have been called  to serve. We must be more focused at work to realize the impact of our actions or inactions either in the private or public sector.

The  RoundTable Conversation encountered another lady breaking boundaries in the agricultural sector. She is a female cattle herder from Nsukka.  Ekene Obayi  has a degree in Archeology and Tourism from the University of Nigeria Nsukka. Having searched for jobs without success after her national youth service, she decided to join her family business of cattle rearing. Even though her decision to go into cattle rearing coincided with her husband’s period of recovery from an accident, it is a business she currently does with great pride and satisfaction despite the odds and financial constraints.

She feels her not finding a white-collar job is now a blessing because she has seemingly set some records in a country where cattle rearing is seemingly getting synonymous with sorrow, blood, death, injustice and ethnic tension. She recalls that her in-laws have reared cattle for decades but has had no issues of farmer-herder clashes and wonders why all of a sudden cattle herding seems such an endangered occupation. For her as a woman who has been in the business for long, it’s almost an obsession for her. In the course of rearing the cattle, she discovered the bond that herders have with each cattle in ways that they communicate without talking.

She is often pained at the sudden acrimonious relationship between some unscrupulous cattle herders and the many communities and recalls how one Fulani herdsmen she encountered in one part of Nsukka actually appreciated her job and even gave her a cow as a gift. To her, she feels there has been a mismanagement of that sector of the economy. The government must take cattle rearing as a serious business that adds value to the economy and can actually create a chain of value added jobs if the country can structure better organized ranching systems as done in other countries.

She feels that both the federal and state governments seem to ignore the fact that meat production and other ancillary dairy products from cows could be a big foreign exchange earner for the country aside from creating jobs for the teeming youths.

As a woman in the cattle rearing business, she believes that it is an agricultural sector that should not be a male-only business. Rearing cattle does not mean carrying them on your head so no one needs masculine energy to rear cattle.  Women to her must begin to break away from some socio-cultural inhibitions about certain occupations especially in agriculture. She is happy that necessity has seen more women breaking boundaries  in the agriculture beyond what she is doing right now. Many women are now agriprenuers and adding value to the economy.

The only snag for her is that a field like the cattle business is very capital intensive and governments must begin to make policies that can encourage financial institutions to help young people like her to access funds with low interest rates as is done in other countries for farmers. Despite other challenges in the business, that of funds and loans seem to be too heavy a burden not only for her but for some other youths she has inspired.

Nigerian governments must continue to open up and invest in sectors like the agricultural one to young people like Abisola and Ekene as agriculture is the global highest employer of labour. The women are already excelling in leadership here.

The dialogue continues…

AfriWomen trains 2500 women

By Alao Abiodun

A Non-Governmental Organisation, The AfriWomen Initiative, has embarked on an adult literacy and entrepreneurship training programme.

The programme is targeted to empower 2500 women.

Its founder, Mrs. Adebukola Oso, said the programme, which commenced January last year, was aimed at contributing to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).

This, she said, seeks to eliminate gender disparities and ensure equal access to education and vocational training by 2030.

Mrs Oso said that the training, taken off with 50 women will run for nine months.

She added that the training has been registered and is now being regulated by the Oyo State Adult and Non-Formal Education Agency, while the organisation has also recruited paid-facilitators and volunteers to ensure a successful outcome.

She said: “The training goes beyond literacy, numeracy and enterprise skills. It will include practical, wellbeing and health activities like the training of women on how to make face masks and understanding of the value of face mask-wearing. In four weeks, we have registered 205 illiterate women in micro and small businesses for training.

‘Submit To Your Husband’ – Oyedepo Tells Women As Bamiloye Predicts ‘Valentine’s Day Of Death’

The presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has advised married women who see him as their pastor to be submissive to their husbands in line with the instructions of the Bible.

The Bishop emphasized the need for women (no matter their position) to obey the Bible rather than what was obtained in the world.

“To my daughters in faith, you might be a minister of the gospel, and your husband is not, but the Word of God says, ‘Submit to your husband’.

“You might be earning more than he is or be more highly placed than he is, but this does not in any way make the Word of God of no effect. Submit to him in action, in word, etc,” he stated as posted via his official Facebook page on Saturday.

The advice is coming at a time that the concept of feminism is increasingly becoming a hot topic of debate among men and women, including celebrities in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, ahead of the February 14 Valentine Day, another cleric, Rev. Mike Bamiloye, President of Mount Zion Ministries, has said those planning to explore immorality on that day may signal the end of their lives and dreams, when they were done.

Quoting from Proverbs 7:6-27 in the Bible, he warned that those who see sexual immorality as fun are setting themselves up for trouble.

“TOMORROW IS DAY OF DEATH
Tomorrow evening is a ‘Night of Fun’, when many men and ladies will slaughter their destinies on the bed of lustful pleasure. By next morning it is done! Destiny Auctioned to a young man or a lady whose future has been mortgaged to the devil.

“Happy Valentine!
If Joseph had had a fun with Portiphar’s wife, he would never have got to the palace to see the type of Glory he saw. He escaped that trap that would have aborted his destiny on which so many lives in Egypt and Canaan land, depended upon.

“There is a great story in Proverbs 7:6-27. It is a sad story of a young man on his own “Valentine Night”. He had thought he wanted to have a fun that night, he had thought he wanted to enjoy himself, but crashed his future in a night of fun,” he tweeted.

TOMORROW IS DAY OF DEATH
Tomorrow evening is a ‘Night of Fun’, when many men and ladies will slaughter their destinies on the bed of lustful pleasure. By next morning it is done! Destiny Auctioned to a young man or a lady whose future has been mortgaged to the devil….

From corporations to leadership women have commitment to serve

By Nnedinso Ogaziechi

One of the beauties of global development is the contributions of human ideas to improving lives and developing the needed infrastructure to carry things through. The race to manufacture the most effective vaccines for the global pandemic has occupied the global society since 2020 that the pandemic broke out in Whuhan, China.

Progress is being made and slowly but steadily the vaccines are making progress as more people are getting the vaccines in Europe, Asia and Africa.  For Africa, it is still a long road to access to vaccines in a world that has been forced to embrace the nationalistic spirit of their charity starting at home. The effort is to first take care of their own people before sending to Africa and other third world countries lacking in both the manufacturing facilities and storage too.

What this must reiterate in the developing countries must be the spirit to invest in the human capital as well as the visible and functional infrastructure that aid development.  In Nigeria for instance there must be the willingness to look beyond gender in the leadership at all levels so as to achieve a holistic development powered by the best brains and the most willing to serve.

The Round Table  Conversation sat with Ajibola Ponnle, a skilled Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Practitioner  who rose from a successful career in the corporate world to become the Lagos State Commissioner for Establishments, Training and Pensions. Her more than two decades work experience capped with becoming the CEO of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management before joining government equips her to well for her present position.

To her, she sees her opportunity to serve as her own way of impacting the human capital sector that is indeed the pillar of any development efforts in any society. The infrastructural developments are good but the people are like the primary log that lights the fire of development and must therefore be well educated, trained and refocused for the development we seek to be effective and sustainable.

To her, education, training and capacity building must be availed the workforce especially in the public service for them to be optimally productive. To her leadership at any level must be based on competence and capacity to be focused and serve at any level. There is no scientific proof that any gender is incapable of being optimally productive when empowered on an equal basis with the right education, training and motivation.

The commitment to excel and achieve your goals to her has been her driving force and she believes her present position is an opportunity to give what she has practiced in a career spanning almost three decades. She believes  each worker must find a greater purpose for waking up every day and going to work. Productivity that drives economies must come from the human workforce, whether in the private or public sector, that must realize the value of commitment and hard work.

She is determined to support the state civil servants realize their potentials and understand their contribution to the prosperity or otherwise of Nigeria. She feels that a well-structured Public service is key to prosperity because that is what has developed other nations especially the Asian tigers. There is to her an urgent need to continue reforms in the civil service for optimal productivity and service delivery to citizens so that they can indeed enjoy the gains of democracy fully.

She feels that what has happened over the years is a focus on infrastructural development, roads, hospitals and schools and not enough attention on the Public servants, structures and processes that deliver these outcomes that should produce sustainable impact for development.

We must address the root cause of production and service delivery inadequacies. Luckily, the Governor in Lagos is truly people-centric and continues to support the necessary initiatives required in the area of capacity development such as the investing in a Learning Management System and partnering with LinkedIn Learning which provides access to the best in class content library and has successfully trained 33,000 Public servants. This is encouraging as it is energizing the Service and the benefits will be far-reaching.

We want to do what is sustainable in the long run and which can grow the system. The focus should be the people delivering the service and that means that focus must be on merit and competence and a structure that enables efficiency and productivity. Knowledge is key and we must ensure we get the best into our public service and give them the opportunity to continue to learn, grow and thrive. The commitment to excellence must be the driving force for the civil service and the template must be set by the governments at all levels across the nation for national impact.

Being a part of this Administration has been challenging because of the quantum of work and expectations from public life but it has been very fulfilling. It’s an opportunity to truly serve and there has been a lot to learn from the system. Humility and passion are key to thriving in the Public Service for any individual irrespective of  gender and also being laser -focused on what one is trying to achieve.

The RoundTable  Conversation  believes that our country will begin to make progress when the import of the civil service in the country is truly understood in a way that supports their services as the heart of the nation. They literarily pump blood to all sectors of any country’s economy.

There must be a determination to get the best heads into our civil service. At the moment there seems to be an ageing population in the civil service because younger generation of Nigerians have the wrong assumption about the civil service. The sector ought to be the engine room of development and as such the best and most qualified must be recruited, trained and motivated like in other countries. In most developed countries, the graduates of Ivy league Universities are recruited into the civil service because they come with the best ideas and brains for innovation and  excellent service delivery.

Governments in Nigeria must begin to invest in the training and re-training of civil servants in a country where it seems the only consciousness about civil service amongst the people seems to be strike actions and protests over fuel hikes. Like the Commissioner said, there must be a conscious investment in the civil servants in the area of capacity building and other forms of motivation.

The neglect of the civil service seems to have crept into the national consciousness during the military era with the command and control style of governance that clashed with the merit and hierarchical order that ought to power the civil service.

Most politicians in the developed world always boast of years of excellent public service. In the same way, those in the civil service in  post independent Nigeria used to be reference points for excellence too but with time, even the politicians seem to have towed the lines of the military by diminishing the relevance of civil servants through the treatment they get during and after service. The prolonged cases of pension disputes and cases of deaths and agony of pensioners is a clear evidence of a nation that seems to have lost the value for public service.

That the highest paid group of  Nigerians are not in the civil service says something about our values as a nation and why development continues to elude us. In countries that value the civil service, civil servants are normally very valued that they drive governments in a non-partisan manner for the good of all. That is why they are often referred to as public servants because they serve the public even though they are paid and employed by governments.

The federal and all state governments must go back to reinstating the dignity and respect of the civil servants in ways that their input in the public service can develop the country. There must be a huge investment in their training and welfare so that the position of the civil service as the engine room of government can be restored and development guaranteed..

Ajibola equally believes that the idea of emphasizing quality and rewarding merit is a good step to begin with as that would encourage the best and make the sector more attractive and fulfilling for the people as they work to put in their best and grow the economy.

Coming with her very vast experience in the private sector her depth of analysis about the value of a better structured and reformed civil service is no doubt an asset to the Lagos state government with an economy that is the biggest in the country and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world.

For a government that is obviously focused on engaging the best irrespective of gender, her contributions in the Ministry of Establishments, Training and Pensions would in no small way impact on the public service in the nation’s economic and commercial capital.

She obviously comes to serve with the vintage female commitment and one cannot rule out the nurturing attribute of women in the policy direction that she has been pushing for the civil service in the state.

The Roundtable believes that an evaluation of her perception about the value of the people in any economy is a valid professional advice to all governments in the country if the nation must move up the development ladder. Her efforts in the Ministry is a clear display of one with sustained development in mind and coming purely from the corporate world, her track record obviously spoke for her and she seems bent on being the change she seeks.

We believe that the Nigerian economy cannot have the quantum leap we all want and the seamless functionality we all value in other countries if our governments do not invest in the complete restructure of the civil service and the welfare and training of the human capital that power development.  Governments must begin to deeply invest in our human capital. It will help us create wealth and improve lives.
