Jobs in Nigeria could be as scarce as fuel has been (or even more) these past few days. Many of our youth upon graduation, still spend so many years in search of a job. The governments over the years and through various past administrations have promised to provide jobs for the people and it’s been story upon story all the way. The rate of joblessness in the land is evident in the level of crime and restiveness being experienced on a day-to-day basis; when one stays jobless for a long time, he could easily be swayed into crime and other societal ills (abi? An idle mind is the devils workshop).

I was just outside my house doing my laundry, like I do every Saturday morning and I noticed some children (about 6 of them – the oldest should be 7yrs or so) gathered near the gutter very close to my house. As I was about to take my glance off them, then did I realize that one of them, two actually, were inside the gutter. This caught my attention and I left what I was doing to pay more attention to what was actually going on there.

I dedicate my post on this day to my dearest mother, Mrs. Cecilia Egwumba, as she celebrates her birthday to day. She is priceless to me and the best woman I know and have ever known in my few (or many) years in this world. So I remember this poem by Ann Taylor which we sang (just the verse: who sat and watched...) a lot in primary school, and I am bringing it up here, just for my mother.

Few hours ago, I was greeted with the news that one of my favourite colleague, Madam Beatrice just put to bed. I remember how big her stomach was and how we laughed about its bigness. It was really big o, you need to see it and we always asked her how many babies were inside.

There is a Nigerian adage that says “body no be fire wood”. Most of the time, this becomes true when one is stressed-up both physically and mentally, and the need for rest cannot be overemphasized. We all have schedules for our various day-to-day activities; work or play. Some people work so much so that they can hardly spare a minute for rest. Do you find time to rest at all?
