Over time I’ve discovered that, there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks are different and our durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same play ground.

For instance, one person graduates at age 20 and struggles for another 5 years to get a job, another might graduate at 25 and get a job immediately. One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessing of a child, another lady probably after having series of abortions in her past, becomes a mother almost immediately after marriage. A fellow becomes a Managing Director at 38 and dies at 56, another becomes Managing Director at 55 and lives to 90.

What a life! Life is full of twists, turns, ups and downs and many more surprises and disappointments. Life offers each and everyone of us different opportunities, and once an opportunity is lost, it’s gone forever except by the grace of God. It is up to each one of us to patiently prepare, wait, recognise and utilize every opportunities that come our way. We learn on the way. No one has it all or knows it all. There is a reason why we all don’t fall at the same time. It’s so that when one is down, weak and discouraged, the other who is strong can encourage and lift the other person.

God never promises that the road would be easy, but he promised never to leave or forsake us. Although life is complicated, let us learn to go easy on ourselves and trust that God is working it all out for our good. Whatever trials, challenges or down times we face, all shall pass, and in due course, we will be up and strong again to lift up those who may be down around us. NEVER LOOSE HOPE. Pass this on to your friends to encourage them in their journey called LIFE!.

This is the new timetable for the 2015 BECE candidates who due to leakages of papers, examination malpractices and other unforeseen circumstances had 5 of their 9 subjects cancelled.

The new time table will afford them the ability to call themselves graduates and not “prosponed graduates” as they now call themselves in class.

This is the new timetable:
Monday 29th June, 2015
English Language 2
Integrated Science 2
Religious and Moral Education 2

Tuesday 30th June, 2015
Mathematics 2
Social Studies 1 and 2

I use this opportunity to advise WAEC to prevent any future occurence as the zeal with which the most of the children wrote the 2015 BECE before the cancellation was higher only to be told midway on 17th June, 2015 that all the core subjects have been cancelled in addition to RME.

I will not be surprised if the children show a poor perfomance this year compared to the many years of examination at the basic level. I wish them all the best and I encourage the investigation by BNI and WAEC to move on swiftly to help maintain orderliness on 29th and 30th June, 2015.
