MY PASSION, MY DESTINY : CLEMENT EDOKA

Image
I am a graduate of Accounting from the Federal University of Technology, Yola, now MAUTECH.  Being an Accounting graduate never stopped me from chasing my dreams which is becoming a "Shoe maker," a vision that makes me feel fulfilled as a person.

My childhood has a lot to do with my journey into shoe making.  I always remember when Mom would buy inferior, substandard shoes for me. To my greatest surprise, these shoes will park-up (get spoilt) in weeks. My Mom and I became so angry with the manufacturers, raining all manner of curses on them, 😁 (Like we could see them). As a result of such occurrences, I would (then) take some pairs of shoes in my bag to school and study them during break periods. I will loose them completely and study the make-up. I would discover (as young as I was then) that the materials used (in making these shoes) were very inferior. 


One day, I was privileged to be with a friend called Noah Ogbeh a.k.a Observation, the next thing I saw was that he bro…

MUTUAL EXPLOITATION IN RELATIONSHIPS

Image
When we go into a relationship, we most times go into a relationship mainly for one selfish reason or the other. We think mostly of ourselves in a relationship without necessarily putting the other person into consideration of what he or she needs and wants in a partner. The "I" factor becomes predominant in our thoughts for a life partner.



Let's see what mutual exploitation is before we go further.
Exploitation simply means taking undue advantage of another person. Mutual exploitation on the other hand is when two people or a group of persons take advantage of each other for personal gains either consciously or unconsciously.
A man wants to get married to a lady because he wants his bed warm always. He wants a woman to take care of his house and needs. A woman that will give him children who will carry on his name especially male children and most probably to advance his tribe. Some men find it difficult marrying a lady not from same tribe as them no matter how in love…

TWO-WAY STREET RELATIONSHIP

Every form of relationship requires some level of work by those involved in that relationship to make the relationship work or progressive. God created and designed relationships to be a two-way street. Some relationships started off as sweet two-way street relationships but fell of to one-way street along the way.
