Image result for street sense images in nigeria
I do a weekly show that is centered on building our peace and unity as a people called "Peace Talk With Mercy." Outside interviewing prominent stakeholders, i also take to the street to tap into the huge resources of men and women who may not be elite but God have gifted with Street Sense that can help in bringing solutions to our many problems. I had an interesting time, these are extracts from the video. The sense shared by these great Nigerians on the street will marvel you. You may find some very extreme,like abolish State of Origin? #OurPeaceIsParamount.


To achieve peace in Nigeria one of the things we need primarily is love, we have to love each other, where there is no love, there can’t be peace. We need to tolerant one another and carry everybody along; everyone should be treated equally in respective of your tribe or religion.

Government Responsibility – They should ensure there’s equity and no tribe or religion is marginalized 

Citizen’s Responsibility – Citizens should reason together and be united in purpose and goal to achieve peace in Nigeria no matter what happens. We also need to forget the past because if we keep remembering the past we can’t have peace.

Happy World’s Happiness Day – Living Happily Ever After in a Highly Opinionated World.


My emotion on Social Media and even offline is geared towards promoting peace, unity and greater understanding. I am usually puzzled when a social media friend will toll the route of abuse on my comment box. I may have been misunderstood but abuse is never the right response to an earnest opinion that is void of any form of insult. The last encounter was with someone I know offline. Damn, people don’t just care; they are ready to war with you at the slightest opportunity. 

We live in a highly opinionated world; people are ready to stand by, fight for or even die for their opinion but is it worth all that stress? Our opinions matter, however we need to put it in the right perspective in order to enhance our communication, foster friendship and save us the war of words that usually ensue when people share different opinions.
