#SoriyanChats – 15th January 2015

#SoriyanChats is a twitter forum where I, Olakunle Soriyan, discuss with my ‘tweeps’ on select local and global issues affecting us. People get to ask me questions or make comments and I respond accordingly.

This segment on the blog is a deliberate effort to capture the chats in a single view and make available for referencing and recheck especially for those who missed it.


Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: We are LIVE!! Join the transformation using the hash tag #SoriyanChats. We shall be discussing the upcoming presidential elections…

Youngichu ‏@youngichu: @olakunlesoriyan Awesome discussion for today #SoriyanChats

Adedola Adekolu-John @dedols: @olakunlesoriyan, do you see the forthcoming election causing a religious divide in Nigeria? We have seemingly 2 parties suggesting 2 divides

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @dedols This election is actually coming late for that. RELIGIOUS DIVIDE is already over 30yrs old in its hold on our politics #SoriyanChats


SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan who is your prefer presidential candidate and state reasons sir!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  @TheSamOre Honestly, my MIND is SEARCHING & totally UNMADE. I am still WAITING for the CANDIDATES to DISCUSS the “HOWs”. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: The PRESIDENTIAL RACE is on…and BIG TALKS from both PDP & APC CAMP. But NONE is discussing the “HOW” to the PROMISES #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan I think they are, sir except they are not telling us in details. Specifically, the APC Vice Presidential candidate.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso My IGNORANCE is OPEN to EMANCIPATION. Whether from PDP/APC, I am SINCERELY UNAWARE of the “HOW” CONVERSATIONS #SoriyanChats

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: @TheSamOre #soriyanchats whether GEJ or GMB we should vote with conscience and a metamorphosis not tribe and sentiments

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats i think more young people need to be sensitised on the importance of exercising your franchise we can’t just sit back, time to act.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @pamabueenamhe True. &this MUST be the RESOLVE of all NIGERIANS. Yet, “DOING SOMETHING” must be GREETED with GREAT CAUTION #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @pamabueenamhe Well…as a PRECURSOR or at worst, SIDE by SIDE that, should be the EDUCATION about the SCIENCE to “CHOICES” #SoriyanChats

SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan previous event and records should be the line of your DECISION sir..30days to go you are yet to decide?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre Should I buy a shoe simply bicos I have money, even when the seller cannot present choices that make sense to me? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre I demand that sellers should explain “HOW” the product can deliver the PROMISED VALUE..or I will pocket my money #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre So bicos I have worked in great hospitals b4 & did well, U’ll let me defend u in court without the “HOW” to it? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre CREDILITY is a JOURNEY. If you win the WORLD CUP in 2014, u have to return 4yrs after to “PROVE” u can do it again #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre No PROMISE made for VOTES should IGNORE the VOTERS RIGHT to KNOW the “HOW” to and even the “WHY” of the PROMISE #SoriyanChats

SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan the How should not be the determinate value if your vote apparently explanation is never ENOUGH but previous Actions

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre You overrate VOTING as the PATHWAY to our TRANSFORMATION. By another AWARENESS…it is NOT NECCESSARILY a PATHWAY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre As RESPECT to the VOTERS, explaining the HOW to every PROMISE is actually SERVICE and JUSTICE to ALL. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre NO CANDIDATE, whether PDP/APC, should actually allow ANY VOTER DEMAND for the “HOWs”. It should be the CAMPAIGN #SoriyanChats

IAmGbengaDaniel ‏@1SpiritWithHim: @olakunlesoriyan: Politicians must show apt understanding in communicating SOUND POLICIES plus STRATEGIC IMPLEMENTATION PLAN. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @1SpiritWithHim Perfect thoughts!!! #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan We may not likely get to hear ‘How’s’ but btw GEJ and GMB, can u tell me who you advise me to vote for, sir?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I will NOT give advice that’s NOT clear within me as a RESOLVE. I AUDIT before I COMMIT…or I will COMMIT NOT #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I don’t know how to use my PURCHASING POWER to BUY what i don’t understand. I’ll rather NOT BUY.. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso Even if it is one second to election,I’ll ONLY VOTE what i UNDERSTAND. We NEED the HOWs! VOTING is NOT TERROR #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan “For every Olakunle Soriyan there is equal or great than 1million fools in Nig.” Those 2 ‘really’ can’t say the ‘HOWs’!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I actually don’t need that praise sir. Not about me. The issue is about a demand for the “HOW” on every PROMISE  #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso &this INSULT of CHOICE based on PROMISES without the HOWs has gone on for DECADES UNCHALLENGED. It’s now TIME #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I consider it an INSULT for ANYONE to EXPECT ANY NIGERIAN to make a CHOICE based on ZERO-TALK on the “HOWs” #SoriyanChats

Raphael Chukwu ‏@ralphchuksng: @olakunlesoriyan The “HOW” has never been addressed in Nigerian politics.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @ralphchuksng Sound Point!! And this is where the conversation should be. VOTING is NOT the AUTHOR of PEACE. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @ralphchuksng CANDIDATES on ALL FRONTS must LEAD the CONVERSATIONS about the “HOWs” if there is SERIOUS INTEREST in my VOTE #SoriyanChats

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats True we also need to be careful not to get ourselves mackled in any Corrupt practices pray for Nigeria

Babalola Emmanuel ‏@PtsAbe: @olakunlesoriyan true yan mentor.#SoriyanChats


Babalola Emmanuel ‏@PtsAbe: @olakunlesoriyan sir, the truth is none of d candidate is worthy of my vote since the choice is between bad and worse or worse and worst

Youngichu ‏@youngichu: @PtsAbe @olakunlesoriyan that is the point. In between the devil and the deep red sea. What shall we do and what can be done?

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats I am paraniod right now the way things are going made Gods peace be upon Nigeria

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing Edward Burke. This is the Nigeria situation


Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan Hello sir. What should we bear in mind when choosing the proper candidate for this election? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: Our FOCUS in this ELECTION should NOT just be about who can FIX the ECONOMY…but about who can KEEP the NATION TOGETHER #SoriyanChats

Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan Sir do you think a nation ‘togeda’ where many of d ppl are being killed and d leader can’t defend them is actually togeda?

Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan I think our problem goes way beyond someone who can keep us togeda. We need to atleast be safe before we talk of togedaness

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair I understand your anxiety and i fully empathise. But the RESOLVE to be TOGETHER will address our SAFETY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair To be together is CRITICAL or VOTING is WASTE. VOTE is a SEED & NIGERIA must EXIST 4 our vote to have a HARVEST. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: For SOCIETY, the DECISION & RESOLVE to STAY TOGETHER against all odds is as IMPORTANT as COMMITMENT to (cont)

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @anytorn We need the “HOWs” to the experience of these promises. NO CANDIDATE should actually make ANY VOTER demand for this! #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: See…CHANGE is a SCIENCE…not a WISH! CHANGE is METHODICAL. The “HOWs” of the PROMISES are as CRITICAL as the CHANGE #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: CHANGE AGENTS EVERYWHERE must DEMAND that the “HOWs”&”WHYs” should come with EACH PROMISE on the MANIFESTO. It is ONLY NOBLE. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: Thank you all for JOINING the hashtag #SoriyanChats. Meet you on the NEXT ONE. GOD BLESS our GREAT NATION. NIGERIA will WIN #SoriyanChats

Oluleye Ogunmola @OluleyeOgunmola: @olakunlesoriyan, in those difficult moments of ur start-up, have you ever been tempted with an offer of employment? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @OluleyeOgunmola I have been offered mouth watering employments. But God helped me before I could be tempted enough to break #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @OluleyeOgunmola It was a great experience while i worked. But what will take me back to that should not be a mere crisis #SoriyanChats

 oluwafemi Dairo @oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan can u please explicate, how can ones pursuit be guided by reasoning? #soriyanchats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO Intelligence..Street Knowledge..Self-Awareness..Social Skills..and on top of all that: MENTORING #SoriyanChats

Blueprint Activator™@abiodunBEYOND: What are your best practices on branding your social solutions? #SoriyanChats @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @abiodunBEYOND To thyself be TRUE..To your GOD be ACCOUNTABLE&To your WORLD be RELEVANT. That’s the ENGINE of SOCIAL CHANGE #SoriyanChats

Blueprint Activator™ @abiodunBEYOND: #SoriyanChats Sir, how do you go from a personal burden to a social solution? @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @abiodunBEYOND Clarity from within. When you are internally clear…MISSION becomes NATURE…and TRANSFORMATION becomes DUTY #SoriyanChats

 Obadina kemi @Okekemi: @olakunlesoriyan ; ur schedule looks like nature is eroded I salute your selfless effort towards change though! #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Okekemi Thank you…Grace and Providence are critical succor-points for my ENERGY…GOD is TRUTH and FAMILY is KING #SoriyanChats

 Obadina kemi @Okekemi: @olakunlesoriyan sir, you are busy thinkn, giving, sharin, lovin. I wanto know, hw do u replenish in a self consumed society? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Okekemi Time to learn or rejuvenate should be NATURE. Asking how I do that is like asking how I am able to EAT. #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan sir, wiv ur knowledge on parenting, is there a time when flogging children is permissible? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair No time. What we need is discipline not punishment. Discipline is corrective but punishment is an error of nature #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan some might argue that flogging is a form of correction…#SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan:@airsawhair Correction is the ability of the human spirit to impact on the erroneous in a way that governs behavior #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair @cherokee_autumn The human soul believes as it sees; his ignorance is a formidable adversary to his truth. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @cherokee_autumn True..yet,a head can b stubborn..also takes a heart-touch;a human moment dat shares a connection INSIDE-OUT #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan wat oda option is thr 4 a parent who has tried talking, motivating, appealing & even praying all to no avail? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair Rent a space in their heads and play. If u have to give timeouts, explain and do a minute per age #SoriyanChats

 Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac:  @airsawhair @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats In what ways can we discipline a toddler?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Punishment is the unguardedness of the offended to give the offender the experience of his or her pain. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair It is already established that most parents never correct their wards in their lifetime…They only punish!! #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Formal training isn’t needed to punish…you only need to be born. Any fool can punish but correction is a skill #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Trust me…its ignorance. There is no such thing as a stubborn child, ONLY ignorant parents #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair We rarely punish kids for doing wrong…We punish them for doing what we don’t like #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair For this…We should sit. Most kids never offend..They just play. Kids don’t do wrong.. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Training/Coaching!! Parenting is not a gift of nature…it is a skill #SoriyanChats

 Opoola Akintomiwa T @AkintomiwaT: @olakunlesoriyan. How best can I make a living from writing as a young Nigerian author? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @AkintomiwaT CONTENT must PASS the TEST of MEANING&NEED…Your MARKETING & SALES EFFORTS must PASS the TEST of UNIVERSALITY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @AkintomiwaT Yes. But not just the Nigerian market. You do need the e-commerce platforms that delivers value beyond borders #SoriyanChats

Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: Sir I wanna know and I’m sure odas wanna know too…who are you going to vote for in 2015? #SoriyanChats @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Tough choice…searching my soul…looking for the answer. #SoriyanChats

EvoReb @evoreb: #SoriyanChats Sir how best do you think the insurgents in the north should be handled? @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @evoreb The instruments holding the insurgents together is called INTEREST. This INTEREST sadly is from both SIDES of the WAR #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @evoreb Honestly, that’s a symposium discussion…#SoriyanChats

 TOBI ISAAC ADEDEJI @high_seek: #SoriyanChats how can we consciously live our life?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @high_seek Knowledge of urself, knowledge of ur maker, knowledge of ur environment, stay accountable and live intentionally. #SoriyanChats

 oluwafemi Dairo ‏@oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan how did you start your journey in the motivational career?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO I am the VOICE of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE asking for the RESPONSIBILITY of the HUMAN SPIRIT to MULTIPLY VALUE #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO But I am NOT a MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER in the way it is DEFINED here. But I am the VOICE of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO My STORY…my FAILURES…those were the INSTRUCTIONS that sparked the THOUGHT REVOLUTION i now KNOW #SoriyanChats

oluwafemi Dairo ‏@oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan the secrets of men are in their stories. can u share some of ur stories? @IAmSteveHarris @iambankole

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO It’s a long story madam..But do find ALL that FAILURE can mean…and you will find the history of my NUISANCE #SoriyanChats

oluwafemi Dairo ‏@oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan cant help laughing sir.i wuld like to know how you started after obeying the instruction to convey the THOUGHT REVOLUTION

Olakunle Soriyan‏@olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO A step per time. The patience of life…the clarity of the soul..& the gift of pursuit under God. They work! #SoriyanChats

 Gbassa Steve @gbassasteve@olakunlesoriyan, how did you become who you are today? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @gbassasteve When I gave my life to Christ…It was the turning point!! The beginning of my madness #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @gbassasteve I have learnt acquired a lot. But what brought me this far? Grit and Faith. The papers are yet to qualify me #SoriyanChats

Gbassa Steve @gbassasteve: @olakunlesoriyan, how would you like to be remembered after you leave this earth? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @gbassasteve That i lived out my purpose and served the whole of myself for the good and advancement of humanity through God #SoriyanChats

Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats Thank you sir. In your view sir, what is that thing(s) that points one to his/her ASSIGNMENT?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats The TOP THREE are SERVICE, LOYALTY, and GOODNESS to ALL…the least factor is DISCOVERY.

 Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats Ok sir. What other ways do we DISCOVER the ASSIGNMENT apart from KNOWLEDGE and REVELATION?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats I mentioned them…SERVICE, LOYALTY and GOODNESS to ALL. These aren’t POPULAR I KNOW…but trust me, that’s it.

 Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats FAITHFULNESS in LITTLE brings MORE. LOYALTY to what’s OTHERS, creates your PLATFORM in TIME. That’s SERVICE.

 Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac:@olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats What spurs you to do what you do? What is your motivation?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats What I do is an INSTRUCTION and an ASSIGNMENT.The EXPECTATION of the INSTRUCTOR is my MOTIVATION. I LIVE in it.

 adeyemi diran @direx02: #SoriyanChats Pls sir what is your take on the immigration entrance test that was done recently?What is your word for the youth and the govt

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @direx02 #SoriyanChats The challenge with the government is over 50yrs old. Its no longer news. Its a case of IGNORANCE helping IGNORANCE.

 Festus Audu @Festuswise: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats…with ur wealth of experience, if given a chance how can u reduce unemployment rate of our teeming youths?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Festuswise Unemployment is NOT our CHALLENGE…UNEMPLOYABILITY is. And that requires another kind of EDUCATION. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Festuswise #SoriyanChats The MASS EDUCATION of our PEOPLE beyond the WALLS and LIMITS of ACADEMICS is the PATHWAY to CREATING EMPLOYABILITY


Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Festuswise #SoriyanChats When UNEMPLOYABILITY is DEFEATED,INNOVATION&VIBRANT MIDDLE-CLASS is the NEW EXPERIENCE. UNEMPLOYMENT will be DEAD in 5yrs.

 Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats What is that one thing(s) that the Nigerian can do to make Nigeria most desirable in the world?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats EASY: INVESTMENT of at LEAST, 30% of our budget in the MASS EDUCATION of OUR PEOPLE. No DEBATES!

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats The NIGERIAN should GENERATE IDEAS in this DIRECTION…and WORK to CREATE the STRUCTURES to DRIVE it.

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac #SoriyanChats The MASS-ILLITERACY of a PEOPLE is the MOST FORMIDABLE ADVERSARY for the ESTABLISHMENT of their POVERTY&STRUGGLE

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats ASSIGNMENT is a JOURNEY my dear.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats Then they don’t want it. What is TOO EXPENSIVE for you is the EXACT REPRESENTATION of WHAT YOU REALLY DON’T WANT.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats A SOLUTION that is NOT AFFORDABLE is a SOLUTION;maybe NOT YOUR OWN SOLUTION. If it is..GET IT.That’s HOW I DO it.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan pls how can one switch to ones passion knowing too well that where u are now, u don’t hv d time to upgrade urself?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats COUNSEL FIRST. Diagnosis MUST PRECEDE Prescription. STAY FAITHFUL where you are. FAITHFULNESS is a LIFTER.

   Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats You’ll NOT ALWAYS be CLEAR about where you are NOT GOING.But you MUST ALWAYS KNOW where you DON’T want to go.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats TIME will LIFT you if you STAY FAITHFUL WHERE YOU ARE. PREVAILING ROLE is a PATHWAY to FUTURE RESPONSIBILITY


George C. Ezechukwu@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan Ok sir but I have been FAITHFUL for 3 yrs now, I need a change. I know where I want to go.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats What you then NEED is a DECISION. But NOT ALONE. The KNOWLEDGE of EXIT is DIFFERENT from the DAY of EXIT


George C. Ezechukwu@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan yes I decided to get married 1st, so dat I can exit when she gets a job dat can sustain d family while I pursue my dreams

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats GOOD. STAY on your JOURNEY. It’s a SINGLE SHOT and CAUTION is KING. TAKE it SLOW and get to KNOW. KEEP a PLAN

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats RATE the ENGAGEMENT after you LEAVE above the DECISION to LEAVE. PLAN. DECISION DAY is NOT the DAY to QUIT.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks:  @olakunlesoriyan I know sir bt for me to do it, I must resign d one I’m doing now, how do I pay my bills n those of my siblings if I resign?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats If you STILL have FEARS about what to EAT&BILLS, that’s GOD’S VOICE right there saying CHILL & PLAN MORE.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats DON’T RUSH to LEAVE your PRESENT LOCATION regardless of the CONVICTION to do so. MANY DID it and ALL REGRETS..

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats CONNECT to a WISE EYE and a DISCERNING EAR to GUIDE you. A FORMIDABLE EXIT PLAN should be your CRITICAL GOAL.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan Ok sir, I’m planning just that sometimes you get fired up to change your situation

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats PASSION is DANGEROUS when it is NOT GUIDED by KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING and WISDOM. That’s DIRECTION.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks:  @olakunlesoriyan Good evening sir, thanks for this opportunity again.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  @georgeezechuks It’s a DUTY. #SoriyanChats


@olakunlesoriyan, sir I admire you a lot and want to be like you. What’s your secret? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats May U NEVER be like me. Instead,you’ll be GREATER than me; particularly if you are younger by at least 5yrs.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats No Doubt, a LOT of STUDY and EXERTION. But my GREATEST SECRET is GOD’S GRACE that TURNS LITTLE to MUCH.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats I did a LOT. But HIGH and ABOVE ALL I DID is the ACCEPTANCE of the GRACE to SURRENDER to my MAKER!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats Forget about mine. Find yours. NOONE TEACHES YOU HOW MUCH TIME TO SPEND EATING. But 10hrs a week is SAFE.


@olakunlesoriyan, ok sir. What advice can you give me? What books can I read? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats TRUTH and TRANSFORMATION–a MANIFESTO for AILING NATIONS instructed me. OUTLIERS is another Book.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats AS THE FUTURE CATCHES YOU by JUAN ENRIQUE is another. FROM 3RD WORLD TO 1ST WORLD is another. So MANY REALLY.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats ASK QUESTIONS. Those WHO ASK QUESTIONS NEVER MISS their WAY. OPEN your EYES..& take a 2nd LOOK at EVERYTHING

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats Be MINDFUL of what EVERYONE CAN DO & what EVERYONE is DOING. TRUST ME…It RARELY LEADS to VALUE.


Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  #SoriyanChats a SEEING EYES is NOT NECESSARILY a COMPREHENDING MIND..

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: #SoriyanChats This is where WE DRAW the CURTAIN. I have to go. STAY HERE..watchout for the NEXT #SoriyanChats. OPEN your EYES. STAY SHARP.


#SoriyanChats – 9th January 2014

#SoriyanChats is a twitter forum where I, Olakunle Soriyan, discuss with my ‘tweeps’ on select local and global issues affecting us. People get to ask me questions or make comments and I respond accordingly.

This segment on the blog is a deliberate effort to capture the chats in a single view and make available for referencing and recheck especially for those who missed it.


Positive̅ Thiπke̅r!@Emmaleksay: @olakunlesoriyan Has ur passion ever nose-dived since U discovered ur true purpose? If yes, how did U rekindle the fire? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  @Emmaleksay PASSION is a DIVINE ENERGY! Stay true to the creator..the passion can be  challenged but never dead. Stay there. #SoriyanChats

D NEXT GFC ‏@Evan_joshuaGfc: @cutemude @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats @cutemude how is plans on for 18 #TBS program.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Evan_joshuaGfc @cutemude Stumbling blocks here and there. But victory is sure. Stay on the GenVoices website for details. #SoriyanChats

Positive̅ Thiπke̅r!@Emmaleksay: @olakunlesoriyan Thank you sir! Can mentoring exist when the mentor knows not the mentee or is distant mentoring nonexistent? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Emmaleksay Mentoring is a walking – talking relationship. No matter the distance, ACCESS must be GUARANTEED. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Emmaleksay Get a “GENERAL with SCARS” into your LIFE. FORMIDABLE MENTORS make COMPLEXITY into SIMPLICITY. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Emmaleksay In doing so though, BEWARE of GENERALS WITHOUT SCARS. And accept that MENTORING is a WALKING-TALKING RELATIONSHIP. #SoriyanChats

Adedola Adekolu-John@dedols: @olakunlesoriyan sir,do u believe in d concept of time and chance.Cos if its true, why do we have to pursue anything in life.#SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @dedols I believe. Pursuit is our highest preparation, but the key to the door is owned by time and chance in God’s hands. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @dedols ALIGN with your NATURE…and BUILD from there. PEACE with the UNIVERSE begins with your MAKER. #SoriyanChats

Adedola Adekolu-John ‏@dedols: #soriyanchats sir can you explain what it means to reach ones highest fulfilment.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @dedols “Highest” is cliché. Its either u are fulfilled or not. Fulfillment is not meant to be a journey. Its a human state. #SoriyanChats

Nelcarez’ Strings!!!@Nelcares: How do one Calm someone U’ve offended down cauz he does’t want 2 here from Him #SoriyanChats @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Nelcares Do all you can to communicate your position. But after doing all u can without losing your dignity, allow time. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Nelcares Time is your greatest vindication. In time, all faulty facts will correct themselves. Stay true and stay real. #SoriyanChats

Henry Igugu@polskahenry: #SoriyanChats as someone that hires and fires, I would ask: what are the things you look out for?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @polskahenry I choose CHARACTER above SKILL. TEACHABILITY above INTELLIGENCE. And LOYALTY above PAPER. #SoriyanChats

Positive̅ Thiπke̅r!@Emmaleksay: After God, what inspires your thought-provoking ideas? @Olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Emmaleksay So many teachers. I cannot list all..but will do a few. Taiwo Odukoya, Vishal Maldiwagi, Ravis Zacharias, etc

adeyemi diran @direx02: #SoriyanChats. Thank you sir for this opportunity. more GRACE for you. I want to ask how long should someone sustain a dating relationship?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @direx02 For me..two yrs maximum and two yrs minimum before marriage. Anything below or above this, is not a rule..But a risk. #SoriyanChats

George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats pls how do I double my finance this year?

George C. Ezechukwu@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats I’m working but d salary is small, I also hate d job bcos it is not in line wit d course I studied.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats it depends on what u do specifically. I will need education on that

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats I will have to first understand your present source of Income. Do u get? I must diagnose b4 I prescribe

George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats the job takes all my time 5:30 am to 8:30pm Mon- Sat. So no time for me to pursue my dreams.

George C. Ezechukwu @georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats I studied Microbiology bt I luv journalism. D job I’m doing now is not related to Microbiology or journalism

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks ..not in line with the course u studied is not why u should hate the job. And trust me, its not why u hate it

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks Your job should be a part of your dream. But We should talk further

Positive̅ Thiπke̅r!@Emmaleksay: How do you stay positive when you find yourself in an obviously terrible mess? @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Emmaleksay Connect to a veteran of such a mess and u will find out the simplicity of where u are in. #SoriyanChats

Holyblaze@TwitHolyblaze: @olakunlesoriyan Sir, Do you think a revolution is what Nigeria needs for a positive turnaround? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TwitHolyblaze We need a revolution but not violence. We need a call to mental weaponry. We need THOUGHT REVOLUTION. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan@olakunlesoriyan: #SoriyanChats closes now. I believe you had a wonderful journey on #SoriyanChats. Stay Rooted here for the next journey…and Stay Sharp!
