tomorrow

When Tomorrow comes

When tomorrow comes, there are countless dreams we always desire to achieve. They keep us going, even when it’s far easier to give in to discouragement. Just like yesterday, we soon emerge in the cusps of the beauty tomorrow promised.

No guarantee

Unfortunately, tomorrow is promised to no one. We are only sure of today. The best we can always do is hope for tomorrow, but as much as we look forward to it, we must enjoy every moment today offers.  I might cry tomorrow, but I may be smiling the day after. That’s enough. That’s the way life is. If I don’t lose hope – tomorrow will come.

The truth is, tomorrow will come if we don’t lose hope. Live today facing forward, with your back on yesterday, your eyes on tomorrow, and your head and heart at the moment. You may lose everything, but never you lose hope. Stay strong, you never know what tomorrow brings.

Love Life, Love yourself. Nothing is guaranteed. So many things we go through, but we always stay strong. Our paths may not be the easiest. The journey may not be the smoothest, but we must keep moving on courageously. Never looking back in fear and regret at yesterday’s pains.

He never got to see his dreams come to Light

A few days ago, I had a nostalgic memory of a very dear friend. We both attended high school together. He was the most loving soul in the entire school. He was soft spoken. Technically gifted. Intelligent and smart. He was also calm as they come.

One beautiful Monday morning, we all came to school to hear the sad news that Emoefe was gone. It was a difficult day for us all because he was much loved by all.

We never knew he was going through some medical challenges. Always smiling even in extreme difficulty, Emoefe never had the opportunity to blossom with his amazing talents. He was just 15.

Emoefe had big dreams. He once shared with me some of those lofty dreams. A very ambitious student, who had high hope of unleashing his potentials when tomorrow comes, but he left those lofty dreams untouched. Conquered by the ailment that had plagued him from birth. Emoefe was brave to death. Never showed signs of worry and anxiety.

Life sometimes can be cruel. Kept asking myself: Why do bad things sometimes happen to good people? Why do some beautiful souls have to go through some painful moments?

Unfortunately, most questions about life have answers but sometimes these answers again become questions themselves. Life is a mystery and we just need to bear the burden life brings with joy.

Today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day. Enjoy each moment, knowing that we aren’t guaranteed tomorrow.

Life

Life is a beautiful Journey

So often in life, we encounter things that tend to blow away the wind out of us and set us back on reaching our goals and destiny in life, but we must never dwell on the negatives from such experiences. Dwelling on the positives will always do us a world of good.

The idea is not to ever get discouraged when we falter or get stuck on the sand of adversity and trial. These things will always be there as our constant companion, but when we make up our mind to always strive forward and not backward, discouragement will take flight and our heart will surge with waves of encouragement.

Bus stops

Life takes us through several bus stops. It doesn’t mean you’ve come to the end of your journey in life. It only means you are getting close to your destination. Sometimes, the bus may take a while and patiently wait for others to come inside. Don’t get discouraged when you experience delays in any area of your life. It’s just a temporary setback.

Don’t give up on the journey

Some arrive early to their destination, while others arrive so late. No matter what happens in the journey of life, never you give up on your dreams. Forget about your age. Forget about your background. When it’s your time to blossom, nothing will stop you from shining.

Always look on the positive side

There is always positive in every negative situation we go through in life. Some have a very quick start to life and accomplish so much before their peers. Others are slow starters, but slowly and gradually, they also achieve all they had set to achieve in life.

Efan Ekoku, former Norwich City and Wimbledon striker who now has a beautiful career in the media as a sports commentator has always been an inspiration. He became a full international in 1993 when he was called up to the Nigerian National football team before Tunisia 1994 African Nations Cup.

He blossomed late in his international career. At 27 years of age, many would have written him off, but he was selected for the Tunisia 94 tournament and emerged as a winner. It was a beautiful story that instills hope in those who may be thinking about giving up on their career.

This life is what you make it. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean the journey is over. Keep trying, hold on, and always believe in yourself. Keep your head high, keep your chin up, and keep smiling no matter what you going through.

Dreams will push you beyond limits

Dreams will push you beyond limits

Dreams simplified

Dreams are the fuels that carry us through the journey of life. Sometimes, the journey may seem rough and the road looks a bit bumpy. What keeps us going is the dream that gave birth to our initial momentum in life.

The beautiful dreams of Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne had always had the dream of becoming a top footballer while still playing at Belgian club Genk. The relatively unknown Belgian who had this fiery personality and a tenacious spirit experienced something that later on changed his entire career in 2009 while still with Genk.

In his first year with the Belgian club. He was made to live with a family, but due to his withdrawn attitude, the family informed the club that they do not want Kevin to stay with them anymore. The young Belgian was understandably upset and heartbroken.

 “People were saying that I wasn’t going to make it because of my poor character. I told myself at that point: ‘Let’s see who has the last word.”

Dream come true for Kevin De Bruyne or so it seemed

True to his word, Chelsea came calling for his services in 2012, and he later signed with the London club in a five years deal worth £6.7 Million. He was however faced with so many challenges while with Chelsea under coach Jose Mourinho, which left him with bitter memories.

His dreams of becoming a world-class footballer were almost becoming a nightmare, and he was eventually sold to  German Club VFL Wolfsburg in 2014. It was a move that ignited the full potential of the midfielder.

Dreams rekindled

At Wolfsburg, he made a whopping 21 assist in the 2014/15 football season and break the Bundesliga assist record in the process. He ended the season with 28 assists in all competition and was voted the 2015 German footballer of the year. In August 2015, Manchester City acquired the services of the talented midfielder in a deal that surpassed the then club record (£55 million).

KDB shines brightly at Manchester City

Dreams do come true, and for Kevin De Bruyne, his dreams were already unfolding before his eyes. His amazing form in Manchester City’s colors has seen him amassing a total of 67 assists in 158 appearances.

He was recently voted UEFA Midfielder of the year, Premier League player of the season, and UEFA Men’s Player of the year award. The best is yet to come for the fiery Belgian who has also been in astounding form for the Belgian national team.

In reality, Dreams do come true, but in the process of achieving one’s dream, there would be challenges that need to be surmounted. There would be moments of doubts, days of uncertainty, dry spells, and even failure. But as long as we hold on to our dreams, we would achieve all we set our hearts to achieve.

tears

Tears, sorrow, and Blood

Tears filled the eyes of Jimoh Raji Atanda 52, the father of 20 years old Jimoh Isiaq who was brutally murdered by SARS (Special anti-robbery squad) officers of the Nigerian Police Force on the 10th of October, 2020. The sad incident occurred during the protest by youths calling for the disbandment of the rogue unit. Jimoh Isiaq was shot multiple times, even though he was unarmed and not actively involved in the protest.

People had come to pay a condolence visit to him and to comfort him on the death of his son. Words couldn’t stop the tears from flowing, as he recalled the happy moments he spent with his son. The sorrow around his home was palpable, as he shared the harrowing story about how bullets were extracted from his dying son.

The Nigerian Police force, created in 1820, has always been noted for its notoriety, brute force, and killings, that has left in its wake, thousands of deaths, maim, deformed, and helpless citizens still fighting for justice. The tears and sorrow caused by these men in black, can never be quantified.

The late Afrobeat King Fela Anikulapo Kuti, before his death in 1997 sang a lot about police brutality, government corruption, and the systemic failure of the government in Nigeria. His mother, Chief Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti had a bitter spell in the hands of the state-owned Police.

In 1977, she was thrown from the second floor of her house and died of complications from the injuries she sustained in 1978. Till his death, Fela was a thorn in the flesh of the Nigerian Government, as he was always singing about the ills of the police and the wicked atrocities of the Nigerian Police.

Rollback to 2018 in London, United Kingdom, the current President Muhammadu Buhari during a panel appearance with world leaders at the Commonwealth Business Forum, referred to the Nigerian Youths as “Lazy”. It was a comment that sparked huge outrage back home in Nigeria. The general impression is that the average Nigerian Youth is docile and doesn’t care about the affairs of the country.

This narration however changed on Thursday, October 8th, 2020, when a small pocket of youths staged a protest outside the Lagos State House of Assembly Assembly Complex in Lagos, Nigeria. Their demand was for the scrapping of SARS and an end to police brutality. They came prepared with tents to pass the night and even got assurance about their safety from authorities.

Matters however turned from bad to worse when their tents were destroyed in the middle of the night and their lives were threatened by the same Nigerian Police force they were protesting against. Twitter was awash with an update about the situation, as a popular comedian Debo Adebayo was on the ground at the protest venue.

Pictures of the youths sleeping on bare floor greeted Nigerians the next morning and tension started building up. The heat was intense and the movement became unstoppable. In Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Benin, Ibadan, Owerri, Onitsha, Asaba, and in most states of Nigeria, the demand was clear: “No More SARS, No More Police brutality”.

The hashtag on Twitter was #ENDSARS. Twitter owner Jack Patrick Dorsey even gave his support to the protest by tweeting about it on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020.

The regular trademark of the Nigerian Police has always been tears, sorrow, and blood. The killings have been mind-boggling and most victims cut across sex, age, and class. The youths of recent have been the major target of the Nigerian Police, especially the SARS, as they are always harassed with impunity.

Here’s a roll call of some deaths that have been recorded over the years in the hands of the Nigerian Police. The list is inexhaustible, as more youths are been killed as I make this post

The list is a sad commentary of the brutal nature of the Nigerian Police, which has seen it been ranked as worst in the world by https://africa-facts.org/botswana-police-ranked-africas-best-nigeria-at-bottom-of-global-report/ These youths have had their dreams cut short. Footballers, musical artists, entrepreneurs, engineers, auto mechanics, students, and hard-working individuals have been sent to their early graves via the excesses of the rogue Nigerian Police Force.

Tears are still flowing freely among victims of police brutality, and the pains caused may take a while to heal, even as the government has scrapped SARS and renamed it as SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics Team). Things have not changed, as tension is still high in most cities across the country, with reported cases of police brutality persisting.

Total Police reform is been advocated, even as the youth have outlined 5 major demands to the government. These demands are:

  • Immediate release of all arrested protesters
  • Justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families
  • Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation & prosecution of all reports of police misconduct (within 10 days)
  • In line with the new Police Act, psychological evaluation & retraining (to be confirmed by an independent body) of all disbanded SARS officers before they can be redeployed
  • Increase police salary so that they are adequately compensated for protecting the lives and property of citizens.

Unfortunately, these demands are yet to be met by the government, even as state-sponsored thugs are been deployed to disrupt the peaceful protest. Cars and equipment were burnt in Abuja and Lagos, even as the Edo State and Lagos State Government have imposed curfew in all parts of the state.
