Set goals that build confidence ~ Comrade, Rabiu Momodu

Setting and achieving goals is an important part of developing self-confidence.  Goal setting is the process you use to set goals and measure how successful you are. Inform your goal setting with your personal SWOT analysis.  Set goals that maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, take advantage of your opportunities, and mitigate the threats you face. When you have identified the main goals you want to achieve, identify the first step to take for each one.  Make sure it is a very small step, it may not take more than an hour to complete. If, while setting goals, you find that doubts are beginning to arise, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally.  If they seem less serious under scrutiny, that's great.  However, if they are based on real risks...

Olusegun Adeniyi ‘To this day, many people in Nigeria think I killed him.’ That was the opening line in the riveting account of the last hour of the late Bashorun Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola as told by Ambassador Susan Rice. She was one of the visiting American diplomats in whose presence the presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election died on 7th July 1998. More significantly, Rice was the one who served Abiola the famous last tea. For the past 22 years, the former National Security Adviser to President Barack Obama has refrained from speaking on what exactly happened that day. But in her memoir, “TOUGH LOVE: My story of the things worth fighting for”, Rice recounts not only how Abiola died but also confirmed the street gossip about the last hour of the late General ...

US Election: Top Democrat Pelosi Calls Biden ‘President-Elect’

Foreign, US Elections, What's Hot
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, on Friday called Joe Biden the “president-elect” of the United States after he pulled ahead in key election results. “This morning it is clear that the Biden-Harris ticket will win the White House,” Pelosi told reporters after Biden overtook President Donald Trump in the potentially decisive state of Pennsylvania. “President-Elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead,” she said. It is “a happy day for our country. Joe Biden is a unifier, because he is determined to bring people together.” Pennsylvania would be enough to put Biden past the magic number of 270 votes in the state-by-state Electoral College, which determines the presidency. Biden also took a razor-thin lead in votes counted from Georgia,...

Foreign, Sports, What's Hot
Manchester City’s bid to regain the Premier League title faces a defining moment against leaders Liverpool this weekend, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fights to silence the critics as troubled Manchester United take on Everton. City are already five points behind Liverpool, albeit with a game in hand, and cannot afford to lose to the champions at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s side have allowed Liverpool to steal a march on them after winning just three of their first six league games. Although City have won five of their last six games in all competitions, including a midweek Champions League success against Olympiakos, they remain some way short of their peak form. Hampered by Sergio Aguero’s recurring injury problems, City have lacked a cutting edge at times...

#EndSARS: Coalition of Northern Groups Accuse Amnesty International Of Bias

#ENDSARS, Breaking News, Nigeria, Politics, What's Hot
By Abubaka Mohammed The Coalition of Northern Groups has faulted Amnesty International over what they term biased and unsubstantiated report and conclusion on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos State and other parts of the country during the recent #EndSARS protest. According to the group, Amnesty International made a fundamental attribution error by jumping to a conclusion on the basis of doubtful and flimsy pieces of circumstantial evidence on the Lekki incident. The group also accused Amnesty International of desperation to legitimise an obvious violent protest as peaceful, while it deliberately ignored or overlooked the gruesome killings of police personnel, attacks on northerners in the southern part of the country and destruction of public and private faciliti...

By Ibrahim Musa The Nigeria Immigration Service says the passport of #EndSARS promoter, Modupe Odele aka Mochievous, was seized as part of a routine border assignment. The Spokesman for the NIS, Mr. Sunday James, told Overtnews on Thursday night that whenever a restriction has been placed on any individual, the immigration service is duty-bound to enforce it. James said immigration did not seize Odele’s passport because of her #EndSARS activities but because it was enforcing a restriction order. He said, “When there is a directive from any agency of government not specific, we have to enforce either entry or restriction of entry by anybody who has been directed not to be allowed exit or entry and as a matter of fact, we cannot as a border management agency, allow anybody w...
