WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF IS MORE IMPORTANT

              THAN WHAT SOMEBODY THINKS ABOUT YOU

                                               …FOLA DANIEL

I do not remember if I have told you this story before but it does not cost me anything to relate the story again. When I was a student in class 1 during my college days, I was walking down to the dormitory with two of my friends when I saw the Senior Prefect who, then, was in class six. I admired him so much and I coveted is integrity and reputation as a leader. He commanded so much respect and I remember I once sought a chance just to talk to him. I told my friends I was going to be the Senior Prefect of my set but all they did was jeer at me. Six years later, I became the Senior Prefect. I also commanded respect and people were talking about me in places I’ve vever been to. It’s because I had that picture in mind. The college is Mayflower School, Ikenne, Nigeria. 

Create a picture of where you want to be. What matters is not what others think so long as you believe it. You will be there.  

Question of the moment

How do you strike a balance between professionalism and religion?

Poem of the moment

OUR INSTITUTION

Our institution Needs a resolution.

Every corner of our institution

Already understands love constitution.

Our girls have gone into prostitution

And if you don’t grab what they mention

The next line of action

Is first class seduction.

Students no longer have articulation.

The picture of extortion

In stakeholders’ classification

Has gone to front position.

The exacerbation

Of the situation

Has brought degradation

On the name of the institution.

No facilities for communication

When we know that information

Is no deformation,

But orientation

That triggers aspiration

For elevation.

The order of composition

In every association

That comes into position

In the name of liberation

Has become world-class corruption.

I have boiled in indignation

And there is no resignation

In combating the anomaly of the situation.
