What inspires you?

I am greatly inspired by motivators, people who seek to extract the very best from the worst life has to present. Seeing the works of motivators and their impacts in the lives of the vulnerable inspires me greatly to initiate my own ideas that will create an impact on lives. Whenever I see problems in the lives of those around me especially little children, I am challenged to spring into action.

Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

Achieving The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has always been an issue of great concern to me since I became aware of it in 2009 after attending a lecture on it in my secondary school days. Taking into consideration the fact that we have just two years to the deadline (2015), I have realized that Africa especially the sub Saharan region countries (Nigeria inclusive)remain at the bottom of countries ready to achieve these goals before the deadline. I am really passionate about goal 1- Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. This has inspired me to work with other initiators like me to embark on a "hunger break" programme. We prepare snacks as "hunger brakers" and distribute to malnourished children in our community.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

A leader to me is a person who is not intoxicated by his position. A person who believes that his powers and authority are not to be abused but are tools of unification geared towards achieving the goals of his community. He should integrate the ideas of his subjects into his rulership.

Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already?

My membership to TIG has widened my horizons. It has given hope to my ambition and dreams. TIG community have given me the reason to fight on until I achieve my goals knowing that there are other innovative minds like me with prospects of making a difference in the lives of people. It has helped provide a platform for me to interact, share my thoughts with youths from all parts of the globe, helping to break the barricade of tribe or race.
