WEEKLY NUGGETS

My fellow constituents of humanity, welcome to the Easter week. It is vital I drop this piece as a roadmap to sustainable success.

Develop the quest for success as a lifestyle, don’t get caught in the web of indecision or idleness.

Create a roadmap for your future, don’t look for shortcuts, they are dream spoilers, be focused.
Nigeria may be hard, but come on, you’re harder, nothing good comes easy.

Your friends may not buy into your idea, remember, its your future, your life, your own and only you have the password.

Develop a knack for knowledge, avoid evil communications, make humility a vital part of you, be patient and steer clear of every violent conducts, eschew crime, it can destroy your vision and even you.

Love all men, even your enemies but don’t be loose with them.

Have faith in God and believe in yourself.

It is only you that can unlock your greatness, the best time is now, get up, get going.

All you need is just one more push.

Aim, believe, achieve.

See you at the top.

Dr. Summers V.C Nwokie

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
-Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow-

I appreciate the efforts and determined commitments as being exhibited by women all across the world. They have been instrumental to a whole lot of developments and positive discoveries that have shaped and is still shaping our planet today.


In politics, health, commerce, industry, academia, security, sports homemaking and several other strategic vocations, the womenfolk have excelled and displayed profound excellence, despite the inhibitions and constraints inherent.


As I join other well-meaning constituents of a fair and just world, to celebrate the audacity of this underrated gender, who have measured up and risen above barriers to the height of excellence, I solemnly advocate for an end to undue discriminations and unequal circumstances in opportunities etc. Believing that raising the bar of fairness and universal justice can stimulate world economy, influence sustainable peace and catalyze development.


Congratulations to all the women across the nations of the earth.

Dr. Summers V C Nwokie.

WEEKLY NUGGETS

Good morning to you all, my fellow constituents of humanity and welcome to another new week. Hope we are coping with the high demands of the year, as regards, high expenses amidst the tightness of the economy.


I know it’s hard, I know it’s rough and I know times are tough, but in all, I know we are tougher and stronger and must surely overcome this storm of hardship and severe economic downturn, it all needs resilience and diligence.


Late last year, I harped on early planning, I am sure we must have charted and designed our strategies for a successful and fulfilled year. Be sure to know that the hustle has started, there are no protocols, let’s move to work. 


Those your conceived ideas, dreams ,plans and projections, what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time enough you get busy with them? The holiday is over, it’s back to business, come on!, let’s hit the ground running.


No much talks, let’s get busy, see you guys next week.

WEEKLY NUGGETS

Good morning, my fellow constituents of humanity and welcome to another brand new week. I hope the week was kind to us in our hustles and endeavours, the bad economy and other challenges not withstanding. Any how, keep the faith, it is a matter of time and you will break even. Believe.


Last week I promised to take us through the fundamentals that can guarantee success and tremendous breakthrough. They are some of the elements that obey the laws of nature, never play with them.


It is agreed that hard work, diligence and expertise are the ingredients that can make someone successful, there is no doubt about that, but there are some spices that can make pudding a delicious treat.
It is simple, “the art of sacrificial giving. 


It is very good to give or be benevolent, but giving, offering selfless services that cost you money, time, etc are more rewarding because they obey the laws of nature. God knows the importance of giving that he even gave His only begotten son to redeem humanity.
When you involve yourself in humanitarian services, you are actually invoking the positive laws of nature towards yourself and all that concerns you.

 Personally, I don’t give because I have so much, but rather, as a way of insuring my future and concerns. Secondly, as a means of showing gratitude for the privileges bestowed on me.
There is no excuse for no being a brother’s keeper, there is no justification for the inability to GIVE. 


A new year is on the verge of dawning. To have that amazing future, to get that great job, to reach that enviable height, you must fertilize your ground so as to have a bountiful harvest. This is the best time, utilize this Yuletide to sow the seeds that can yield the desired produce.


As we practice these outlined guidelines, I am very hopeful we shall all converge at the table of success.


Wishing us all God’s blessings and the best of the week.

In final preparations for the smooth success of the 2021 Edition of the Mbaise Unity Cup, the organizers of the competition, Ikukuoma Foundation have been undertaking some stakeholders engagements and making sure that all loose ends are tightened.


The program team, led by the Director General, Comrade Julius Nnaji and the Program Officer, Miss Rejoice Ogbuagu, made some scheduled visits to the chairmen of the Traditional Rulers Council in Mbaise land. Being the chief security officers of the communities and the custodian of the traditions, the Traditional Rulers have vital roles to play in support services. 


At the palace of His Royal Majesty, Eze Leo Nwokocha, Chairman – Mbaise Council of Traditional Rulers. The amiable traditional ruler was excited when the tournament information was relayed to him. He gave his full support, pledging his full backing behind the competition. He autographed the official football effigy and and endorsed the event.

A “young-at-heart” man who has passion for humanity.


After being briefed of the team’s purpose of visitation, the Eze showed delight and concern towards the success of the proposed tournament, assuring of putting heads together with other Ezes within his jurisdiction to ensure the success of the competition. He extolled the Founder of the Foundation, High Chief Dr. Summers Nwokie, for his thoughtful sporting initiative. He further promised to bring the entire Ezes within control to grace the opening and closing ceremonies of the tournament. He also autographed the tournament’s official football effigy.

Ikukuoma Foundation promises not to relent on it’s desire to deliver a memorable tournament that will be worth the while.

WEEKLY NUGGETS

Good morning, my fellow constituents of humanity and welcome to another brand new week. I believe we had great and favorable moments, signifying that the week was indeed memorable after all.


This week will be superb, this week will be desirable and delightful for all of us, this is my earnest prayer and wish for all of us. I believe strongly that if we apply the simple principles of natural laws, the tide will be in your favour.


What are these simple principles? you might ask. Yes they are simple and readily doable. Care, kindness>>>LOVE.


How much do you care about those you are better off than? When last did you perform an act of kindness to those who may not afford to pay back? These are some vital and integral ingredients needed in the pudding of success.


Do you think you will be where you are today if someone has not performed an act of love in your life’s path? You think your success story is just because of your expertise and wisdom? Not at all, an act of love in one way or the other perfected it. Fact.


The Holy Book (Bible) admonished us to do unto others, that, which we desire to be done to us. And that simplifies the act of love.


Brethren, giving is a catalyst that attracts favour, success and total wellness. The roads to our successes lie in our abilities and capacities in appreciating mankind and helping others to grow. Imagine a world where we all decide to be one another’s keeper, where we all genuinely care about one another. Think about that.


As we step out to embrace the activities we have lined up for the week, may we consider these pieces above and put them into good practice, then watch as success becomes a servant to us.


May the good Lord protect and guide us all, while blessing our hustles as we embrace these lines.
Happy New Week.


Dr. Summers V.C Nwokie.
