Today April 9, 2012, I clock 40 years of age. I am thankful to God for everything but my heart is heavy because I seem to have failed so far!
Currently on a monthly salary of =N=440,000 and having worked in paid employments for eight years, I have no house or land of my own, I have a ramshackle looking five years old tokunbo car and a total investment and savings less than =N=200,000 with indebtedness to the tune of a million naira!
I am not bewitched or under a spell (I believe) but this failure stems from wrong decisions, unhealthy empathy and sentiments.
So far, I have lost about =N=7 million naira in monies invested in the businesses of family members and loan granted to friends to solve their financial problems. These monies are not coming back, they are completely lost! I do not drink or womanise but sometimes wish I do because at least I would have known the bottomless pit that sang my money.
I have survived 3 mass sack of staff in the banking industry and I am just wondering what life will look like if eventually I am also asked to go home, moreso, with my wife still struggling in her high risk business venture with a networth of =N=1 million. This is my second attempt at setting her up.
I am the eldest in the family of seven (from both sides of my two fathers). 3 members of these families are still in the higher institution and this responsibility is on me. I have 3 kids of my own with the eldest in primary 2. I pay a rent of =N=400,000 annually and hope I and my family member remain in sound health so that I don’t have to incur any huge health expense.
All said and done, I am determined to succeed in this life. Analyse, advice and judge me!

People should leave boko haram out of this. I am a yoruba man so no bias. Do u see the way this God forsaken, lazy and greedy boys stand at the bus stop on Lagos roads to extort money out of hard working commercial cyclist and drivers all in the name of unionism? These so called area boys are a time bomb waiting to go up, government is really not doing anything about these extortion because the elected leaders have vested interest in those boys, but what comes round goes around; when these hooligans are done dealing with average Nigerians; these politicians are next on me!

If they go on with the strike, they will be guilty of contempt of the court; but government may not punish them because it will want to show the world that it is not tramping on peoples right; but I hope NLC/TUC won't go back to the same court it treated with contempt for justice if any thing goes wrong. Everybody now believes the court's judgment is secondary when it comes to issues not in their favour. For christ sake, court's injunction are meant to be obeyed when you take reasonable step to counter it in a court of law! This country is gradually sliding into anarchy and confusion. Help us oh Lord God!

This is revenge, not justice; and where there is no justice there will never be peace. This is why peace has eluded this country for so long. Barbarism in its most heinous level! Very nauseating!!! Nigerian police, Goshhh!!!!
