My Sunday Broadcast – What my father told me when I was 6 years old.

 

 

 

Tomorrow is February 15, 2021, and it shall be another date with The Guru at Lagos Talks 91.3 FM. Starting from 0930-1100hours, The Guru shall sit on judgement over review of topical issues, live, expecting your full participation. Permit me to start today’s discussion with a preamble lifted from my past. Listen and enjoy the narration please.

My late father, Samuel Etakibuebu Achohra, who died at the age of 103 years, on April 26, 2005, did not acquire any education – albeit Western Education. This must have related to the fact of poverty that prevailed in the lives of his parents, mostly the father – Achohra Aku.

I should be able to say that authoritatively because one of the most befitting and appropriate thing he ought to have bequeathed to me would have been poverty. Of course l inherited it to a time, and while that time lasted, l rode in the “luxury” of that phenomenal called poverty.

Enough of my background on that narration as a comprehensive work on “My Life and Times” is speedily gathering momentum. And by the grace of God, you shall pick a copy, when it comes out, to know that God can bring someone from NOWHERE to SOMEWHERE. That someone is Godwin Etakibuebu – The Guru!

Why is this an appropriate preamble for today’s narration? It is to reveal that there is a wide gulf between poverty and wisdom. A man might be poor but be loaded with wisdom – that acumen called “common sense”, and this “sense” is not really “common”. Yet, our forefathers called it common sense.

My father was one edifice of common sense. He was loaded with it – God endowed him with excessive wisdom; l mean common sense. And this l inherited from him willingly and everlastingly, to the glory of God. Listen to something my father told me when l was 6 years old.

Every day of your life, in the evening, before you go to sleep, take stock of everything that happened to you that day, including what you said, did and learnt. Then ask yourself one basic question: what is anything new l leant today? If you cannot pinpoint anything new you learnt that day, then critically consider that day as a day wasted in your life”, the old man concluded.

Those words have remained one golden rule guiding my life ever since then till this day, and they shall remain my guiding cardinal principles until my Creator shall call me home.

It must be for the reason of applying my late father’s counsel profitably, and in all my doing, that l put much research; sometimes tormenting and at other times, excruciating, into this radio platform segment of The Guru, so that at the end, all of us can learn something new on weekly basis. It remains the only enduring legacy we can bequeath to our future generations because The Guru and You shall not be here forever. It is only our works that shall be.

We shall return back to this preamble in a jiffy, because you need to know why and how that fatherly advice of the early 50s is appropriate for today’s discussion.

Let us go through a few teasers for tomorrow. Maybe, we should start with this most bizarre pronouncement by a Nigerian sitting Governor. We should be weeping for motherland, after listening to Bala Mohammed; Executive Governor of Bauchi State. Let’s go.

“Bauchi Gov lambasts Southern colleagues, Orthom, says herders’ AK-47 for defense”, so the headline shouted through all the Media – both at Print and Electronics.

Bala Mohammed picked his topic appropriately, choose the place of dissemination profitably, and shot the missiles fully aimed at a bewildered Nigerians except the Fulani tribe.

He spoke aiming fully, but with reckless abandonment. He nevertheless told Nigerians what the future; a future being forcefully brought down on them (Nigerians) by the Fulani catastrophic agenda, holds for them. Listen to how he rammed home the bitter message.

After saying that “Southern Governors are wrong”, he added that “but the person that is most wrong is the Governor of Benue State . . . he started all these”. He thereafter delivered his killer-punch instrument by saying, “and now, the Fulani man practicing the tradition of trans-human, pastoralist, he has been exposed to the dangers of the forests, the animals, and now, the cattle rustlers, who carry gun guns, kill him and take away his commonwealth, his cows, he had no option but to carry AK-47 and defend himself because the society and government are not protecting him. It is not his fault, it is the fault of the government and the people; you don’t criminalise all of them because in every tribe there are criminals. You should be sensitive”.

You may also want to wait and hear what the Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, said, along the line of the same rhetoric before drawing your conclusion if the Kingdom and Empire of the Miyetti Allah has not arrived.

“Bandits plan to acquire anti-aircraft missiles”’ so says Gumi. You know the influential Islamic Cleric; Sheik Abubakar Gumi, who recently made an adventurous incursion into the “forests of death”, in his one-man peace mission to the Bandits’ camp. He returned with revelations and also recommendations of amnesty by th federal government to the bandits.

His recommendations are already falling on deaf ears in some quarters, dominantly in Kaduna State where the Governor; El-Rufai, is saying no the the cleric’s talk of amnesty. Will you blame El-Rufai for doubting Gumi’s recommendation? Did El-Rufai not carry our money and traveled “outside” to “bribe” some notorious Fulani killers herdsmen, telling them not to come to Kaduna State? Is he not having more bandits in his hand these days than ever?

Who came first as “TROUBLERS” of the brethren? Is it the Fulani herders? The Rustlers? Or the Farmers? You will have the details tomorrow.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) finally took Femi Fani-Kayode to the cleaners. You don’t have to blame the APC because any fly that fails to listen to voice of reason follows the dead body into the grave. That seems to be the story overflowing around the “over-knowledgeable Oracle” from Ile-Ife; the very land of Oduduwa, in Osun State.

It is ungodly to be arrogant but it is more Devil-like to be arrogant and be greedy at the same time.

The Nigerian Bar Association has finally taken President Buhari to court for his unpresidential and unconstitutional action in elongating the tenure of the Nigerian Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed. I pathologically called on the Nigerian Bar, last week Monday, while l was on air, to approach the Nigerian Bench on the nefarious manipulations of Power by the President. I congratulate the Nigerian Bar Association for a Job excellently done.

There are more topical issues that will occupy out time tomorrow.

Let us return to my father’s advice which served as preamble of today’s discussion.

On this program and this platform, at Lagos Talks 91.3 FM, ditto all other media projects l am related to, there is a commitment to a vow l have sworn to – to wit: any day that fails to bring something new from my work is a day wasted in my life and lives of others. Join me, ipso facto, in sustenance of this vow and the only way to do it is for you to remain my addicted and committed critical critic please.

Your nourishing Historical Perspective is waiting for you tomorrow, ditto the golden-packaged Knowledge Dropbox, while the newly Periscope shall be traveling to Delta State tomorrow to decode the permutations and manipulations of the “dance of death” that is ushering the next Governor of that State, come 2023.

Go directly to my website: www.godwintheguru.com, for fuller revelations of what is happening in Nigeria, because there (in the website) l fulfill my father’s admonition not to waste my day.

Godwin Etakibuebu (The Guru).

    The most common idle mobile game monetization model is in-game purchases. It is the easiest way to immediately buy the necessary amount of in-game currency. Rewinding time allows you to skip the wait time for action and immediately get the desired effect. A multiple increase in speed allows you to increase the speed for all processes occurring inside the game. From time to time, you speed up progress regardless of in-app purchases. This is an effect of exponential growth, and in fact, the overall speed of advancement in the game does not change. The game is full of classic references. You fight Goombas, the Black and White Spies, and even Donkey Kong. It’s a full game with added content once you beat the main story. It’s a great homage to the classic beat-em-ups of yesteryear. Unfortunately, idle games rely on commitment. A person filling five minutes is unlikely to become deeply engaged with the tapping gameplay in that short time, and those first five minutes are key. Plus, hypercasual players always want new content which is why studios pump out many games in the genre, but idle games take time to create. The future of idle games would need to optimise these first few minutes and streamline their development, but here’s the thing… https://historyhub.history.gov/external-link.jspa?url=https://cheatedgames.com/ Good judgment. Police and detectives must be able to determine the best way to solve an array of problems. From online to the comfort of your sofa, these are the best co-op games to play with your favorite digital explorer Francis York Morgan is pretty much THE only reason to play Deadly Premonition. The gameplay is frustrating and borderline broken. And yet Morgan’s intensely quirky personality is so unique to video games that this bad game has been played by thousands just to witness his brilliance. CHICAGO — A Windy City-style backdrop is prominent in two violent video games, one of which has riled the head of the Chicago police officers’ union.

Let us know! As police games go, you are hard-pushed to find another one as explosive as this. Nevermind the cop cars and tasers, Hardline is still a Battlefield game, collapsing buildings, LMGs, exploding choppers, and all. An increased emphasis on vehicles pushes the pace of Hardline’s multiplayer well beyond the series’ par, with modes like Hotwire – which shifts the traditional Conquest flags to drivable cars – rewarding speed and aggression over tactical play. Its driving model might be basic, but Battlefield Hardline can rival the best racing games for how good it feels to be behind the wheel of one its muscle cars or coupés.
