I believe Shakespeare in Julius Caesar was (is) right when he concluded that there is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, lead on to fortune, Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures Parents, teachers, religious instructors and motivational speakers all preach the need to have a well written goals, vision and mission statement in order to score a goal in the Game of Life. Correct, but not sufficient.
Mr Tim Akano is a man that sets standards for people to follow, and it is written everywhere on all the articles in read from this website
Just wise words and good encouragements. Thank you so much Tim Akano
My salutations Prof.Your chat is a masterpiece. A stimulating and instructive treatise. I read and re-read it and know I will read it several times again. A wonderful piece. From it, it seems to me that there is no reversal of the darkening sky over the US, try as the Americans may. The internal contradictions of the great country are already setting her on a downward slide from her world power dominance status, going by your narration of how previous world dominant powers fell. The last of the 'baby boom generation in the US is playing out. No marked possible successors stand out. The US population has gotten so mixed up, sub nationality and religion-wise, in the last 70 years that is difficult to predict the country's future. The vacuum that the US slide is leaving behind is being gradually filled by China and the Chinese. A secretive and illiberal person with rich existential philosophical grounding. I see the rising the China, as Africa's progress stopper in-chief. In so classifyin
Nothing to add. All said, well said and beyond controversy. Even the undiscerning will be compellingly aroused to a rude awakening. Yes, that country's sky is past the early stages of "darkening".
..Wao! Your depth of insights on world matter is simply amazing. I wish you have a platform for world leaders to seat and listen without biases, just to lean. Well done ? I agree with you that ‘empire is an art” and therefore relational. The drivers today must seek God and fear God like the biblical Joseph (Gen 42:18b) otherwise the future is very bleak even for the contending captain.
Thanks Tim, this is an excellent article, apt and timely too. Some of us living in the West and observing the goings-on since Obama years had seen this decay coming even earlier than Obama years. Alas, Wall-Street figures have been papering over the cracks. As it happens, my adopted country, the UK also finds herself in that unenviable position where its debt is bigger than its GDP. Yes, the UK reached that position, this quarter. The malaise afflicting America now can be found in democratic deficit that's been eating into its fabric since the Bush's ballot paper chad in Florida. And turning a free society into one of fear for many of her citizens, especially African-Americans. So, it's really no surprise that America is now divided, and the division is quite fundamental. Closer home, however, how are we going address the same ailments in African countries, in particular Nigeria and the imperialist expansionist ideology of a certain ethnic nationality, who now think that they have capt
??. Thumbs up to you. It must have taken a few quiet nights to craft this piece. I see many African "empires" in the mould of your historical narrative, especially the giant?Nigeria using her as a template - ( undoubtedly, endowed to contest the world captaincy). Threats facing Nigeria's existence is from within, prone to disintegration regardless of its size and resources. The proliferation of small arms over the last ten years and the corruption that have weakened the military have opened up the country( and other African nations - Mali, CRC..)to external infiltration, banditry/ethnic displacement and various evils targeted at the foundation of Nigeria. The implications like the US is socioeconomic and political upheavals. The call for the disintegration of the country and the inability of the leadership to give cogent reasons against the many agitations gives credence to the lies of a united and a 'common destiny' nation. Nigeria has all the potentials to be the heart of Africa, yes

Dear Tim Akano good evening. Thanks for this timely PAPER THAT YOU JUST PUBLISHED. May I suggest that you urgently make this paper available to 1. President Donald Trump. 2. Senator Joe Biden. 3Henry Kissinger 4. Ex-Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama. 5. Current USA Secretary of State, Mrs Hillary Rodham Clinton, Speaker Madam Pelosi and American Council on Foreign Relations. Do this as OAI CONTRIBUTIONS TO RESCUE USA from the Dark Sky that is gathering over her. Thanks
Well researched topic ??. America is a great country but created problems for themselves by taking capitalist system to the extreme, & failed to quickly go back to the drawing board & reevaluate the system/practice. Like you rightly said the various wars they fought over last two decades have also eaten deep into their purse. Hence America's loss is now China's gain. In an attempt to have low cost of production & maximize profit the American big corporations took their production activities mainly to China with accompany technologies thereby developing the Chinese economy through transfer of core technological skills & massive employment. Eventually China got the technological skills from America, improve on it, & started replicating the technology for their own benefits, & for sale to other countries. For instance most electronic gadgets, household appliances...... in American market today are made in China. Hence America was stripped naked at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic pa
Good morning my dear brother Tim. I read this delicious write-up to the very end. As I read, I was going to forward the post. However I decided not to. My humble opinion is that I am not a Trump supporter by any stretch as I believe he is the one that is solely responsible for putting the final nail on America's coffin. I am also not a fan of Joe Biden or American politics for that matter, as it is a society that celebrates and entrench inequality in its citizenry. Having said this, I wish this beautiful write up was more balanced without the pro-Trump slant, I would have happily shared it with others. Thanks for sharing though
Thank you so much Tim for sharing. Indeed the best way to prepare for the future is to create the desired future. The Chinese understood the difference between create the future and waiting for the future to come. Chinese factory are operating today at about 90%capacity. No other country factories are at this level today aftermath of Covid-19 pandemic. Chinese Covid-19 vacancies are in the 3rd phase of development having tried them on 150,000 people of different nationalities with 15,000 of them in the middle East. African ruling class and politicians are continually plunging their economies for selfish reasons and require new refocus. Check what the elite class eat and wear to confirm that local content is less than 15%. Three West African countries- Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria account for more than 80% of world output of Cocoa yet they are price takers and import chocolate bars. No Nigeria refinery is working at present as we export crude and import fuel/associated products. Indiv
Fully loaded & well analysed ??. The developed countries will surely find a way to bounce back after the pandemic as most of those countries already have Think Tank group in place who daily monitors the effects of the pandemic not only in their countries but all over the world, & the emanated international supply chain problems. One way or the other China will be made to pay for not divulging full information about the origin of the Covid-19. Most of the developed countries will likely move some of their production activities to other countries or motivate their big corporations to bring back home their production activities. Some African countries would have been beneficiaries of this but the supporting infrastructures are lacking. Unfortunately Africa may end up being the whipping child at the end of the day except Think Tank groups made up mainly of experienced & selfless technocrats & professionals are urgently set up in each African country to start working out how to revive the e
Good evening Oga Tim. How are you and your family sir? For quite some time now, i have been very very busy. I have gone through your write up. May the Lord continue to grease your brain and give you the necessary energy. You a wizard as well to have been able to predictably analyzed What is coming in 2021. I am strongly of the view that you appear on national TV like TVC, Channel or AIT perhaps to be sponsored by OAI, so that the awareness can begin in earnest by the government ,and everybody. Secondly, the idea of the music concert is a good one. I think effort should be made by you and or OAI to get across to the Musicians Associations. Information passed through songs or play go along a way at reaching substantial number of people. Sir , you are well done.
Tim Akano 1 of Africa, good morning. I just finished reading the long article on: " THE COLLAPSING WORLD BRIDGE " it's another powerful exposition on what the future holds for the world. I was able to deduce from the write-up, that the continent that would be worst hit, is Africa. As a physical and spiritual visionary leader by your own right, what are you going to do to save our world? To me,this is the right time to come out and contribute your quoter to the development of our Nation. It's not just enough to write and expose these facts to us. You need to be a part of the solution to the challenges. Since those idiots are not ready to effect any change, or its probable that they don't have good, and intelligent advisers. This is where your services are needed. God has given you the knowledge and wisdom to do it. God has blessed Africa with both human and natural resources, but not with good quality leaders, which you represent. So, l want to encourage you to please find your way to where you can be of help to our Nation in particular, and Africa and the world at large. Do you know that people like you are the ones that can rescue this nation? Those there now don't even know what they have to do, or they know, but out of greed, tribal sentiment, selfishness, and wickedness have refused to do the right thing. However, your participation in govt can make a lot of difference. Constantly writing to them will not solve anything, and it won't be as forceful as when you are part of it. I know that politics is a very dirty game, and involves a lot of dirty practices that could be against your faith, you can go for appointment, in stead of elective positions. You are too much, and vast in world politics and policies to just lie fallow like that. Please come out to serve your father land. Today Awolowo is greatly remembered for his contributions. You can not just know so much and allow it to waste away. I beg of you. It won't disturb your business, instead, it would enhance it. It's the easiest way to get to the pinnacle of your Zenith. Just think about it. Kudos ??????????????❤️????????.
I left a special comment on your e-mail sir. It was very educative and thought provoking: the gathering storm and hope 23. Great reading for me sir.
This is a prophetic stuff from a thinker and philosopher, Tim Akano. How I wish the charlatans parading as prophets will mindfully sit down and ruminate over the issues plaguing Nigerian state before spewing nonsense as prophecies and predictions. I patiently read through the treatise. The essence of the precariousness of our existence as a people is accurately captured. This is naked truth, backed by concrete evidence, about the impending horror that has closed in on us all. JAPANIZATION, as real as FULANIZATION as it portends, is limited in its scope of spread when compared to FULANIZATION. The alarm is blown, may it please those that wield the levers of power in the land to heed the voice of reason which Tim Akano represents now.
Illuminating, pure and direct messages that steer up positive thoughts and self challenge. Continue to work silently for a better society.
