Adebola Williams: A Greatness Forged in Hopelessness and Despair


Naturally, the exploits of great men, when told, tend to be spurring. This time, however, I was more than inspired and motivated learning about and meeting this great individual at the Centre for Women in Abuja during the 2015 National Youth Reform Conference which had my organisation as a partner. I was a member of the planning committee at this event where Mr. Adebola Williams was a speaker. I must confess, I bloated with admiration at the personality of this simple yet sophisticated and awesome man. From my short encounter with this media mogul, I could boldly tell that Debola Williams is a personification of altruism. He is a selfless, charitable, and large-hearted man. Ever since then, I have always been his greatest admirer.

It was this kindled interest in Mr. Adebola Williams that glued me to my phone and patted me up when I slumbered off to listen to this man’s speech on the second and last day of the recent Obama Foundation leadership summit held in the United States. At this two-day summit, which kicked off on Wednesday, November 1 2017, a handful of speakers delivered wonderful speeches and a number of distinguished and promising youths stood by the lectern to tell inspiring stories of success. To keep track of this auspicious event, I sat up late at night and intently stared at my mobile screen following the trend of the event on Bellanaija. As beautiful as these speeches were, the breathtaking story of greatness which was kindled by hopelessness and fueled by despair, as told by Adebola Williams, unusually caught my attention. His thunderously applauded eight-minute-six-second speech at the event was expectedly engaging and extraordinarily inspiring. For anyone who listened to his speech, it was a narrative of how this ingenious young mind built an empire of hope for the hopeless African youths and how this empire has engaged more than thirty million youths in the past eleven years of its existence. Indeed, like Adebola Williams said, “In despair lies several opportunities; especially to be pioneer, especially to be great”.

After listening to the speech, I was forced to further re-think the opportunities that lie in the seemingly ‘god-forsaken Nigerian land’. It was amazingly inspiring to hear that at 18, Debola and his friends rose to the responsibility of converting the African youths' hopelessness and despair in government to a flourishing media business under the name RED – a social business that inspires young Africans to take social and political action through the power of storytelling.

Going through the chronicles of this rare genius’ life, I was most marveled learning that Debola and his friend, Chude started their business with zero capital. And by this, I am not saying that in a metaphoric sense - the prospering RED Media was literally kick started with #0 and it has never got a capital injection. This is incredible considering the fact that lack of fund or its inaccessibility is the foremost bottleneck to entrepreneurial success in this part of the world. At this point, my heart desired nothing than a mentoring session with this veteran entrepreneurs. I couldn’t be more surprised that the brains won the 2014 CNBC Young Business Leader of the year award.

At 31, Debola Williams is an uncommon greatness having scored unmatched points in the media profession, entrepreneurship, civic advocacy, and human capital development. At this relatively young age, he has co-founded Red Africa which houses The Future Awards Africa, Ynaija, and StateCraft Inc. In addition, this illustrious entrepreneur has founded the Lagos Business Transit and has chaired the Enough is Enough initiative. A Mandela Washington Fellow, Adebola Williams also boasts membership of the British Council Global Change maker and simultaneously sits on the board of Slum to School initiative. He is an uncommon embodiment of greatness.

More astonishingly, Debola Williams has made revolutionary and remarkable contributions to governance across Africa through his Political Communication Agency, StateCraft Inc. Owing to his media expertise and communication strategies that have worked wonders, he was described as ‘the man with the golden touch’ by the Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo having won the 2016 election through Demola’s campaign intiatives. This is not an exaggerated praise on the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the StateCraft Inc., Adebola Williams, who had also previously helped both President Goodluck Jonathan and President Muhammad Buhari won the 2011 re-election and the 2015 elections respectively.

According to Martin L. King Jr., life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'what are you doing for others'. In a painstaking effort at answering this great question, Adebola Williams, forms a part of the award-wining Slum-to-School, an initiative that goes out to pick teens and youths from the wanderings on the street to a better and educated life in a school. He is a humanitarian par excellence.

Perhaps, one recurring factor in the narratives of great men and leaders is their quality training, rich knowledge, and intrinsic motivation. A probe into the formative years of this young African pride bore witness to this fact. Debola Lagos, as he is fondly called, has a rich educational background and training and a brilliant track record in entrepreneurship, advocacy, and activism. He read journalism at the prestigious London School of Journalism. Though he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, it is was pathetic and shocking to the young Williams when, at nine, he watched his family’s wealth vanished into the thin air before his eyes. Surprisingly, the young Debola took charge of his life and, at fifteen, started working.

For ages, the popular saying, ‘Show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are’, has always been true and the case of Mr. Debola Williams is another proof. He wines and dines in the midst of equally great minds like his friend and business partner, Chude Jideonwo. Perez Tigidam of the Nerve has described this duo ‘as the Moses of the 21st century leading fellow youths out of a bleak socio-political and entrepreneurial past’. He (Debola) walks with Japheth Joshua Omojuwa, a prominent blogger, public speaker, socio-economic and political commentator, social media expert, and twitter warrior. And, he is a friend to Samson Itodo; one of Nigeria’s foremost youth think tanks on governance and citizens’ participation and the brain behind Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA).

With this brilliant track record in governance and advocacy, entrepreneurship, and humanitarianism, the entire team of Brain Builders International thinks it would not be over-ambitious to recommend this renowned, bright, smart, prudent, marvelous, inspiring, philanthropic, visionary, and exceptional Nigerian entrepreneur for a national award of recognition on contribution to nation building and human capital development. We believe that if something like merit exists in Nigeria of today, it should be conferred on exceptional minds like Adebola Williams.

Is social Media a great distractions to the Nigerian students ?

Social media is rapidly becoming a major routine in our day-to-day activities, it consumes our time and for most youths, their lives just revolves around it. There are however many social media networks available to us these days such as Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp, and addiction to these social media platforms are growing by the day. Even adults are becoming victims of this so called “addiction”. The question now is how can we curb the amount of time we dedicate to social media, especially when it’s not for a good cause and doesn’t put money in your pocket.  


1. REFLECT & REVIEW; Now, think back to few years ago before the advent of Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter and the likes. Reflect on what used to occupy your time before and start doing it again (obviously, positive things). For example, I used to read novels a lot before but these days I have realized that I don’t read anymore and that’s because I am always on my phone looking at what people are doing with their lives instead of making mine better.




2. PRIORITIZE; no one is saying stay away from your phone or don’t be on any social media platform, you just need to prioritize and know what comes first. We can all attest to the fact that social media makes us procrastinate a lot. When you tell yourself “let me quickly load this snap and do amebo”, before you know it, you are on the phone with your friend, talking about what you saw on someone’s snapchat or instagram page and boom! three hours gone.




  1. 3. REWARD YOURSELF; let the time you spend on social media be a rewarding factor. Let’s say, you’ve just concluded a deadline or achieved something great that day, reward yourself by hanging out on social media.
  2. 4. PRODUCTIVITY: Life has a beautiful way of balancing things out. A strong positive can be drawn from almost anything we perceive to be negative and vice versa. I am not saying social media is negative, but then it can be if we don’t use it responsibly. The trick is to remember that Social media can be used for a world of good; I can’t even start listing half here! Whatever you do, make sure you engage in a positive endeavor. Social media is such a powerful tool that many have earned a mouth-watering income by engaging productively on these platforms that many simply fail to see the hidden potentials of.

Senate President urges universities to shun all comers programmes

Senate President, Bukola Saraki

Dr Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, has urged Nigerian universities to be agents of community development rather than running all-comers’ programmes.

Saraki gave the advice in a goodwill message at the 3rd Biennial Conference of the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities in Abuja.
He was represented by Sen. Jubril Barawo, Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Education.
Saraki said in the past, Nigerian universities were known to have experts in certain programmes but this was no longer the case.
“Today, it is a different scenario, as many Nigerian universities want to run all programmes from university teaching hospital to having a nuclear department."
He said the development had paved way for the influx of unprepared students many of who could not address their special needs.
“There is, therefore, the need for Nigerian universities to change from being conventional sources of graduates to becoming engines of community development.
“Nigeria needs a new generation of universities that can serve as engines of community development and social renewal,’’Saraki said.
He said that fundamental reforms would be needed in the curriculum design of the universities to boost their efforts in proffering lasting solution to the nation’s economic social and environmental challenges.
Saraki urged the committee to look into some other unwholesome practices by some lecturers who took delight in taking up multiple appointments or full time employment in more than one university.
He said the development accounted for the reduction in the quality of graduates, as a result of lack of adequate supervision by lecturers.
He called for an end to labour disputes in higher institutions to check strikes, adding that better funding would make them relevant "in the ever-competitive contemporary education."
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, identified resource constraints as one of the challenges facing the universities.
He, however, called on the university authorities to manage the available resources at their disposal effectively and efficiently to achieve their aims and objectives.
Adamu’s massage was tagged: "The Journey so far and the Future; the Ministerial Strategic Plan for Higher Education’’.
The minister was represented on the occasion by Hajia Fatima Gidum, Director, Tertiary Education in the ministry.
Adamu urged the conference to come up with a framework for the funding of tertiary education and augment the statutory resources.
The conference, with theme, “Sustainable Tertiary Education in a Harsh Economic Environment’’,  will end on Thursday.

UNILORIN to search students in Native wears to curb exam malpractice

Image result for unilorin
The management of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) is set to subject students of the institution wearing native outfits to examination hall to close scrutiny in order to curb exam malpractice.
Dada Obafemi, the Registrar of the university, revealed this on Thursday that this process is necessary in order to avoid doubt and integrity. The students will be thoroughly screened before entering the examination venues.
Obafemi said: “Please note that while caps are allowed into the examination halls, they will be thoroughly checked. All Deans are requested to take note of the above for due compliance by their staff and students, who are involved in examinations as the University is set for the Harmattan Semester Examinations for 2016/2017 Academic Session.”
He added that this step was necessary because the school management received a notice that students wearing native outfits to examination hall uses it as an opportunity to cheat.
He said, “It has come to the notice of authority that students wearing some attires, including native dresses to the examination venues will require close scrutiny.”

Corp members cries out over maltreatment - Zamfara

Image result for nysc
Zamfara Corpers serving in Kaura Namoda, Zamfara State have sent put an appeal for justice over one of their colleagues who according to them was maltreated and brutalised.
In their message tagged: WHO WILL HEAR, AND NOT CRY? They lamented that Michael, the male corper was allegedly brutalised by the policemen simply because he scolded one of his students and asked the student to kneel down. The corpers in their petition alleged that the policemen were paid by the rich father of the student to punish Micheal and unjustly throw him behind bars. Micheal is currently in police detention and his colleagues are crying for justice.
Read their petition posted on social media here:
Our hearts are thumping out: strong rhythms of pain. Our dignity has been trampled and mangled with reckless impunity. God!
Today a corps member, Michael, serving his fatherland in Nasara Standard Academy perceived as the shining light in a tottering secondary education system in Kaura Namoda was today brutalised and manhandled by a team comprising of the richest man in Kaura Namoda and his equally wanton boys. What was his crime?
Michael had punished his student who happens to be this man’s ward. A simple kneel down. Michael who had nurtured these children with patience and love. Michael, who had taught with empty stomach till letters on the chalkboard danced like rampant music notes before his eyes. For all of us like Michael, who have stretched the capacities of our strengths and sensibilities to serve a stifling system. For all the ‘under the sun and in the rain’, what have we gotten as reward?
This notorious man, clenching his cash ridden fists, recruits the help of the police and the shameless Zombies, storm Nasara Academy to crucify Michael like a criminal. He was punched like a sack of millet and stripped of humanity. He was beaten like he stole karats of gold in a jungle market. O God! My fingers are itching, and it’s like they will drip blood. Michael was driven to the Police Station where the real torture awaited him.
They removed what was left of his pride as a man serving his country. Then, they flogged and flogged him, and when their energy sapped out, the evil of a man threw wads of naira notes about, and refuelled their animalism. Michael was a heap of sorrow and a container of hot painful tears. As some of Michael’s colleagues arrived and tried to raise their voices against the escalating reign of heartlessness; the policemen, some apparently drunk, threatened with pointed rifles, slapping and pushing them.
Who will hear this and not cry? How can we move about when our sinews are depleted? Who will walk the long and dusty paths to schools to teach? Who will serve the masters under a sun that burns through skin and fluid? Who will hear this and not cry?
Michael is lying in a police cell, writhing in pain. He has been physically wounded but more serious is the mental injury. But he is not alone. We are all wounded like Michael and our soul is burning from strife. The brutalisation of Michael in a land where he is vulnerable and hapless will not go without notice. Justice must be done. Corps members must be protected. Our dignity must be restored. Who will hear this and not cry? We therefore call on:
The state Government
The State Coordinator NYSC
The Emir of Kaura Namoda
The Commissioner of Police
