What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?

Mostly the world, especially my own locality has left the way for right living and gone into fast moving train, the quest for fast acquisition of wealth has made most people, especially the youth to shun the search for knowledge and personal self development.

This is why we rarely have an expert in various field today, because we just have the urge for riches and the choice for shortcuts is preferred instead of personal self development that will build a better world.The world is also in the ache of fake and proud leaders whose life shows no quality of a leader, they say what they can not do and promise what they do not have, the world need good leadership qualities and good and sound souls that are interested in changing the world.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?

The problem of the world can be solved if the mentality of the youths; which we believe are the leaders of tomorrow could be changed. The youth tend to be provoked by the false live that our leaders live and many of us seems to be seeking an opportunity or time that they too will be in charge and retaliate. The spread of knowledge could go a long way to keep the youthful mind focus above mediocrity and to make them know that they could build a better world of their own even in the midst of may odds. The knowledge that the youth now can be gotten by their reading of books that could keep their minds from evil and bring them close to the fear of the Lord. The Holy word of God asks us; “how can a young man keep his way pure, It is by his abiding in the word of God.”


I am 27 years of age, live and school in Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State of Nigeria. I am a native of Izzi local Government in Ebonyi State, Nigeria. I love truth, and am doing my best to live for the truth. I am very emotional in nature, and like that makes me express my self emotionally. I am devoted to the search for personal up building since my background (my parents) are both illiterates and this has caused me to be searching for the way my self.

I love using my hands for work (that is, work that involves skills) and my interest is in things that will one way or the other bring joy and happiness to my neighbor.

I love poem and reading or listening to inspiring massages.

It has been dreams that one day, I will be a hope to the hopelsss, being able to meet some ones needs. My goal in life is to have a “Stress free Garden”, a garden where stress and anxiety will be reduce to bearest minimal in the life of the oppressed; also I am planning on how be totally financially independent at the age of 30th, having set my business of an “ICT centre” being registered with the name “PDN Computer Insitute”.

I love traveling, though I hardly have the time and chance to do so. Some of the books that I have red are “tough time never last but tough people do”, “How to manage pressure before pressure manage you”, “ helping those who hurt (how to help a friend in need)”, “think big”, “alone with the alone”, “ the five love languages” and some other emotional and inspiring books.

I have only undergone some basic formal education (Primary, Secondary now an Undergraduate). I have also attended some leadership course pubic speaking and self confidence building where I obtain a certificate. I have served in leadership position right from the time I was in secondary school as Class Captain from Form 1 to Form 3, I was the Labour Prefect of our school, The president of the Young Catholic Student, my school chapter, and even now that I am in the University, I have served as the Organizing Committee Chairman of my Chaplaincy, as the General secretary of the Federation of Igbo students (FIS) of my school chapter, The Steward Ministry leader of my Prayer group here in school.

I am the last born child of my parent out of seven children. My Dad is late and my mother is in the village. I do know for sure that God from whom leadership is ordained will surely take me to the top, where his son Jesus Christ is Seated by his right hand.
