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.

The monetization is as a result of the new policy of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board which mandates every candidate to personally pay into Commercial Banks where that will be registered online.
We may recall that last week, the Constituency Office through its Director of Media and Communications, Hon. Kayode Omotose, announced the decision of the Senate President to give free JAMB forms to one thousand Kwara Central candidates. Meanwhile, as the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, he extended this humanitarian gesture to Kwara South and Kwara North respectively.
History has it that Saraki, as a leader who epitomizes human capacity development, has not only been giving out the JAMB forms but also organising coaching classes at different centres in Ilorin for Kwara Central, Aja-Ipo for Kwara South and Baruteen and Lafiaji for Kwara northerners.
According to the Director of Youth and Student Affairs of the constituency office, Alhaji Kale Ajanaku, the Senate President, as a leader who believes in quality education as the best tool towards a better future of Nigeria, facilitated Seventy (70) blocks of classrooms for Kwara Central Senatorial District with full furniture support, in which many of them have been completed whilst a few are near completion. He proceeded by disclosing that Sen. Saraki, as a leader with a digital mindset, has also begun the installation of computers and other ICT facilities in 8 Secondary Schools in his constituency in order to prepare Kwara State students for Computer Based Examinations right from basic schools.

President Muhammad Buhari

Buhari represented by education minister of state, Professor Anthony Anwuka, said government will no longer tolerate the disruption of academic activities by professional agitators on university campuses.
The President warned that students who are still bent on endless agitations and university staff who collaborate with them, leading to the disruption of academic activities, will be sanctioned in line with existing regulations.
“We must stop to continue housing adventurers, who have no business remaining in the universities beyond the time specified for their studies in the universities.”
“In that wise, it is being proposed that at the end of this academic year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should cease to be a student of the university and should be shown the way out.
“The universities must continue to have people who are serious in what they have come to do,If you have less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are out for good so that the space will be left for those who have come to do serious business.”

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.

JAMB introduces new policies for 2017

Image result for jamb
The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made some major changes in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for 2017.
More adjustments have however been made, and these are some of the things that will happen this year, that have never happened before:
1. No Awaiting Result
JAMB has announced that candidates who have not received their O’level results will not be able to apply or secure admission in higher institutions.
In a statement released on Tuesday, February 28, the examination body said it was part of its restructuring plan for 2017.
2. Fourth Choice
JAMB has also introduced a fourth choice of school option for candidates but would only be able to select only one government school while filling out their forms online.
3. No Choosing Of Public University
The following was also announced: The new registration platform will now be first choice, second choice, third choice and fourth choice and not most preferred, preferred etc as it was.
Candidates’ first choice can be a College, University, Innovative Enterprises Institutions or Polytechnic/Monotechnic. However, if a candidate makes a Public University his first choice, he will not have any public University to choose for 2nd, 3rd and 4th choice.
He will have on the remaining three choices, a College, a Polytechnic, Private University and IEI’S. However, candidates for the 2017 UTME can now select NCE (College) or ND (Polytechnic/ Monotechnic) as their 1st choice up to 3rd choice and the 4th IEI.
They can select the IEI (Innovative Enterprise Institution, ND) as their 1st choice up to the 4th choice, but can only pick a public university once.
4. JAMB  Form Sold Late
The organizers of the major examinations in the country, including JAMB met to avoid a clash in schedules and in order to have a harmonized timetable.
An agreement was reached at the national headquarters of the Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24, after a meeting with National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.
This is one reason the registration is yet to begin.
5. Mock UTME
While speaking the body also announced that plans were in place for a mock UTME and this might explain the delay in beginning the sales of the examination forms. So if you are preparing, start your preparations now, so you can do well in both the mock and the real deal.
6. No Scratch Card
Speaking on the issue of scratch card, the registrar explained that one reason for the delay was due to issues the board had with sale of scratch cards.
He said that whereas candidates used to buy scratch cards to access the forms online previously, they planned to cancel that since it had been abused thoroughly.
According to Daily Trust, he said: “What we want to do is for students to pay directly to government coffers and we are working out the process of doing so to avoid the type of abuse that it has been subjected to.
“So, we want to sell directly and to make sure that candidates pay into TSA account. We have cases of students saying their scratch cards got burnt, others saying their scratch cards were swallowed by snakes or lost in an accident.”

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.”
