Remedy to The Terrifying novel Coronavirus(nCoV-2019).

Remedy to The Terrifying novel Coronavirus(nCoV-2019).

News about the deadly virus that appeared in Wuhan, China in December (now called 2019 novel coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV) is no doubt the talk on every lip in the world lately. And as the number of cases of this virus rises daily across the globe, it is apparent that the most terrifying outbreak right now is the 2019-nCoV. However, since measures to contain and cure this pandemic has proven abortive, some renowned scholars(concerned citizen(s) of the world) have gone into relentless research to get ‘The Most Effective Remedy or Cure’ to contain the disease.

According to CDC and WHO, the Coronavirus is said to be a member of large families of viruses that causes illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Common signs of the infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

HOW DOES IT ATTACK

Once inside the body, according to an analysis of the disease progression in 191 patients from Wuhan published in the journal “Lancet” on Wednesday, the virus uses a spike like protein to bind with a receptor called angiotensin-converting enzyme 2(ACE-2) found on the respiratory cells, entering it and replicating to spread the infection within. As the virus keeps multiplying, it reaches the lungs, causing inflammation in the alveoli or lung sacs filling them with fluid and pus causing pneumonia. The inflamed lungs make it difficult for the person to breathe leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome between day eight(8) and day fifteen(15) from the onset of symptoms.

HOW IT HAS AFFECTED THE WORLD

The exponential increase of this virus is alarming which has triggered the attention of every sane person, governing bodies, companies, and health agencies in the world adopting different means to contain the widespread of the disease. Although corona disease has been labelled pandemic by the WHO, and had already stimulated tough actions from most sovereign states and strict restrictions on everyone living within those states. For example, Italy, Norway, Germany, and South Korea have already declared a state of emergency because of the exponential rate nCoV-2019 is being transmitted within the globe. There have already been more than 200,081 confirmed cases and 8000 deaths of the virus, leading to deaths across many nations -with China, Iran, and South Korea suffering from the highest number of reported cases. We now have more than 82,000 recovery cases. Meanwhile, the economic impact of this outbreak across the globe is rapidly deteriorating.

Additionally, all of these numbers are likely to rise in the coming days and weeks, because each infected person could potentially spread the infection to many others. And it is possible that a person can spread the infection before he or she knows they are sick; this has not been proven for this particular virus, but if true, quickly containing its spread may be impossible.

REMEDY

After considering how Coronavirus(nCoV-2019) attacks the lungs and bronchial cavities, we have been able to ascertain and establish facts on the best remedy and preventive measures to alleviate this virus. “The best remedy and antidote for nCoV-2019 so far is ‘Quercetin’ and rich Sulphur Compounds found in the liquid extract of White Onions. Extract from White Onion bulb is antithelmintic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, diuretic, hypoglycaemic, and stomachic. The onions’ ability to relieve congestions in the lungs and bronchial cavity is hard to believe until you have actually witness the efforts. It has been regularly used as a respite for allergic bronchitis, chronic asthma, common cold and cough syndrome. According to Peace Health, onions have been useful for treating various human diseases such as tumours, persistent cold and coughs.

DOSAGE

After being crushed, 4 tablespoon of the oil extract is recommended to be used twice daily; first in the morning and the second before sleep at night. This is to be administered and taken for several days or weeks.

Side Effects of White Onion

No side effect has been reported so far. But frequent contact with onion seeds may have been reported as an occupational allergen.

CONCLUSION

White onions secrete a lot of phytoncids killing pathogenic microbes, this is why it is widely used as remedy for catarrhal diseases: angina, suppurative lung inflammation, catarrh and cough. It has been used severally in the past for treatment of bronchial asthma and prostatic hypertrophy. One onion bulb can have the same effect as cardio aspirin. Medical properties of onion exceed those in many drugs, which normally have side effects. And it is as well known to be a natural product. Several parts of the plant have a place in traditional medicines.

Café Culture and Heresy of Yahooboyism in Nigeria.

Café Culture and Heresy of Yahooboyism in Nigeria.

The Overview of the Outrageous Exploitation of the Internet in Nigeria;

Café Culture and Heresy of Yahooboyism in Nigeria.

The advent of Internet technology has significantly improved the state of human existence. In fields as far-reaching as educational research, public administration, commercial and business transactions, industrial production and biotechnological development, and global networking, the Internet offers limitless opportunities. Indeed, affirming that global society can no longer function adequately in the absence of the Internet is an affirmation of the obvious. In spite of all of its benefits, however, the Internet is also used in a destructive, antisocial manner by individuals often referred to by such names as hackers, cyber fraudsters, web criminals, and so forth. In Nigeria—a notable haven for such criminal disposition-they are known as yahooboys.

The Internet has altered the patterns of cultural cleavages, the process of socialization, and identifiable social institutions across varying human societies. However, unlike traditional criminal groups, both males and females are involved in what has been termed yahooboyism in Nigeria, albeit with differing degrees of specialized functions. The culture of fraud and corruption prevalent within larger Nigerian society is believed to have facilitated the institutionalization of yahooboyism as a subset. But such a level of “modernization of criminality” among Nigerian youths has been enabled solely by the Internet; an intrinsically insecure space in which nobody knows who exactly you are.

It has been observed that a café culture is prevalent among contemporary Nigerian youths, especially those living in the cities or in semiurban settlements that off er easy access to modern technologies such as the Internet. Café culture is indicative of an emergent way of life in which involved youths conceive of the Internet as their “everything,” from a school (where they can practice and polish their acts of deceit) to a money-making venture (where they can fraudulently eke out a living, thereby escaping the poverty doldrums prevalent in the country and, ultimately, government and society).

In their café culture, these individuals live practically a virtual life and are more familiar with the developments via the Internet than those unfolding within their immediate “real” society. In a research study by a psychology student (Rukayyah Abdulrahman) at the University of Ilorin; titled influence of excessive internet use on self esteem. It was discovered that many youths use internet excessively that it gradually damages their psychological wellbeing. Despite being one of the most endowed countries (in terms of human and natural resources) on earth, Nigeria remains one of the poorest nations in the world, where the state of the human condition has continued to deteriorate over the years (United Nations Development Programme, 2009).

Unemployment, lack of social support, and the deteriorating condition of the country overall has made the country’s youths a ready tool for the conduct of cogent nefarious activities such as those easily attainable through the Internet. Meanwhile, technological advances such as the Internet have brought astonishing alterations to Nigeria’s institutional and cultural cleavages. Nigerian youths have accepted the Internet as a way of life with unusual speed.

Specifically, the Internet has not just imprinted a potent amendment on the Nigerian culture, but it has irredeemably affected the behavioral patterns of Nigerian youths, evidence of this was revealed in the research study: influence of excessive internet use on self esteem. Ostensibly, yahooboyism has emerged as a result. The phenomenon of yahooboyism could be said to represent a state of “cultural lag” within Nigerian society; that is, inferring from the conceptualized two aspects of a culture: the technological (i.e., the material aspects such as the Internet) and the sociological (i.e., usually theoretical or ideological aspects such as norms and beliefs).

The period of maladjustment when the nonmaterial culture is still struggling to adapt to new material conditions is deemed a cultural lag (Ogborn, 1922). With regard to Nigeria, the cultural lag created by the introduction of the Internet to Nigerian society has provided a platform for the emergence of the infamous café culture, which is set to unproductively alter the developmental process of the country’s youths. Within the larger social superstructure in Nigeria, especially among the political class-wealth, often ill gotten, is worshipped.

In assuming political positions, leaders overemphasize the place of money. Upon assumption of office, individuals flagrantly embezzle public money. As such, the provision of services to the citizenry, such as the training of youths, is neglected. On the other hand, among most Nigerians, money from any source typically is the most potent yardstick for determining the level of existential attainment.

Money rather than a quality education, productive leadership, scientific discovery, or solid career development is the yardstick against which people are measured. Hence, society is exposed to youths who have been disillusioned and have not been taught the good virtue of genuine hard work. Such youth have had no trouble immersing themselves in the Internet phenomenon of yahooboyism. If, as outcomes of cogent observations suggest, the Internet continues to spread and becomes essentially ubiquitous in socioeconomic relations, then Nigerian society will indisputably become increasingly dependent on a fragile and insecure information structure.

As such, our youths’ future is in avoidable jeopardy: The cultural patterns of yahooboyism are bound to be transmitted across generations if nothing concrete is done to regulate its spread and usage in Nigerian society. Of course, the Nigerian nation has been described as a largely unordered society in which rules are sacrificed, integrity is nonexistent, brutal selfishness is appraised (because leaders who embezzle public properties are respected and celebrated) and shame no longer exists for despiteful acts. Conspicuously, shameful acts are celebrated and success is redefined as wealth becomes more significant than the means of attaining it (including self actualization)

Instant wealth, regardless of its source, is usually celebrated among the Nigerian populace. In fact, it is usually equated with smartness and is rarely rebuked. In Nigeria, corrupt practices are characteristic not only of the political leadership but also of other types and levels of leadership. As such, values of integrity and honesty are despised, as there is total disregard for rules and regulations across all strata of society. For instance, at both the household and community levels, respective agents of socialization often tend to inculcate in the children and young adults the value of hard work and integrity, but most often, it is at odds with what they observe the elders themselves doing and appreciating.

The yahooboys use the Internet as a platform for engaging in online fraud. Examples of the yahooboys’ objectionable engagements include selling fictitious goods/services and buying what they will not pay for (or paying in no real value); money laundering; hacking; and engaging in credit card scams, pornography, and unconventional sexuality. Ironically, the yahooboys’ criminal applications of the Internet in Nigeria can be directly linked to the failure of a political leadership (Adeniran, 2006).

Yahooboyism is the activity of online youth fraudsters in Nigeria

This is also linked to lack of regulatory entity that focuses on the cyber space. This is however a changed story with the existence of an innovative organization; ProInSafe which focuses on regulating online business activities in Nigeria. With adequate support of the government and cooperation of credible businesses and reputable organizations, ProInSafe being a lucrative initiative will promote internet safety (therefore business scam will significantly be mitigated) and foster rapid growth of credible businesses. Obviously, ProInSafe exists to empower entrepreneurs. Another great benefit of ProInSafe is that it serves to provide numerous job opportunities, reduce crime rates and facilitate community development through their sustainable empowerment projects.

Out-of-school students (who are not in school because of distortions in the school calendar) and unemployed youths constitute a considerable percentage of the yahooboys in Nigeria. Indeed, they ignorantly but proudly claim that their involvement in cybercrime is a way of getting back at such an unjust social system in a “nonviolent” way. This was discovered in the study on investigating the roles of the failing national leadership and the insecure Internet platform in the emergence of the yahooboys phenomenon in Nigeria.

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

To effectively transform and elevate your life and career you need to read Power of Now By Eckart Tolle.

      A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on? ” ” Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember. ” ” Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger.

The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. The Author of this book-Power of Now is the stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer, inside yourself. “But I am not a beggar,” that’s your thought. Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.

If you seek pure and long lasting transformation, this book is recommended. It touches all areas of your life; your health, career, relationships will progressively improve if you read and apply the words in this book. It draws your attention to what is false in you. It speaks of the nature of human unconsciousness and dysfunction as well as its most common behavioral manifestations, from conflict in relationships to warfare between tribes or nations. Such knowledge is vital, for unless you learn to recognize the false as false — as not you — there can be no lasting transformation, and you would always end up being drawn back into illusion and into some form of pain.

On this level, the author also shows you how not to make that which is false in you into a self and into a personal problem, for that is how the false perpetuates itself. On another level, the book speaks of a profound transformation of human consciousness — not as a distant future possibility, but available now no matter who or where you are. You are shown how to free yourself from enslavement to the mind, enter into this enlightened state of consciousness and sustain it in everyday life.

On this level of the book, the words are not always concerned with information, but often designed to draw you into this new consciousness as you read. Again and again, the Author endeavors to take you with him into that timeless state of intense conscious presence in the Now, so as to give you a taste of enlightenment. Until you are able to experience consciousness, you may find those passages somewhat repetitive.

As soon as you do, however, you will realize that they contain a great deal of spiritual power, and they may become for you the most rewarding parts of the book. Moreover, since every person carries the seed of enlightenment within, the knower within you who dwells behind the thinker is being addresses in the book, the deeper self that immediately recognizes spiritual truth, resonates with it, and gains strength from it.

This book is recommended for your personal development and motivation to actively navigate your life which consequently develop every area of your life.

You need this Principle to discover your purpose and live a productive life.

You need this Principle to discover your purpose and live a productive life.

You need to read this if you seek to discover your purpose and be more productive…

LAMP principle is an effective set of techniques to help people live a purposeful and productive life.

The greatest achievement of life is to understand exactly what your purpose is, in this world of so many controversies, news, stories, lifestyles and all. It is amazing to realize that each person has a specific purpose tasked by the Universe. The most successful people in this world have one thing in common, they all live a purposeful life. They discovered why they exist, live that purpose which obviously adds meaning and significance to their lives. This gives them happiness, fulfillment, fame, riches and all the amazing things  the world can offer. To be like or better than that icon, great leader, business tycoon, legend, you have always adored, you need to live a purposeful life.

It is one thing to have a purpose, it is another (which is the most vital) to discover the purpose. When we mention purpose, it simply means the reason of your existence, your responsibilities, the role you exist to play to complete the circle of the universe. Discovering our purpose can seem herculean but nothing is sweeter and more interesting than living a life that’s dedicated to understanding why we breathe, why we were born and why we exist.

All you need to know is the How! Many of us often consciously and unconsciously question ourselves, what is my purpose? How do I discover my purpose? All these questions are very vital, more vital than life itself. If you live and there is no purpose for such life, the feeling is synonymous to being dead because you are overwhelmed with the feeling of emptiness that you feel lifeless, useless and tired all the time.

This usually is a major causal factor of mental distress and in fact physical sickness. Read on to understand more on how you can discover your purpose, develop yourself and be more productive.

The rapid way to discover your purpose and live a  more productive life is through adopting the following techniques that have been summarized to be LAMP.

1. Learning: As stated earlier, it seems difficult discovering who you are and your purpose because you don’t know how to. First step is reading this present blog. Learning is an endless process. Therefore don’t limit your learning to four walls of classes, exam preparations, school books etc. Read widely, be open minded, explore various fields, focus on yourself and decide what captures your interests more. Read self development books, attend seminars, speak to learned people, psychologists and others who you know are capable of impacting unto you a meaningful knowledge. Learn from others’ stories and experiences to help you easily navigate your journey too. Each person’s journey differs but it often requires same attitude to discover and embark on the journey.

2. Application: Knowledge without an evidence of it is useless and in fact detrimental. Every knowledge holds a space in the mind, if not put into fruitful use, it takes up the space for no reason and more painfully it causes anxiety. The reason is that your whole body has received a signal of a significant information but if you don’t put it to use then your neural system reacts negatively to the entire information. Like punishing you for knowing the right thing but not doing it. Reading a book on how to cook will not automatically imbibe the skills in you, until you apply the information. You get your hands on the kitchen utensils and food stuffs then make efforts to actually cook.

Once you learn that it is important to read to learn, you won’t magically learn until you adopt the knowledge by actually reading. If you learn that over thinking leads to anxiety, you will get rid of anxiety only if you adopt the knowledge and stay away from over thinking. You must apply the knowledge, practically adopt the principles and rules then you will observe progress. You can’t be a millionaire just by reading millionaire mindset book until you act out the knowledge. Let there be strong mutual connection between your sensory and motor system. Motor system is responsible for practical actions, body movements while sensory system is concerned with the input, taking in the information. As stated, its not enough to take in the information, its more important to act out the information.

Complement your learning with the application of the information then you will surely experience rapid progress and abundant success…Rukayyah Rahman

3.Mindfulness: This is very important and cuts across the whole process, because it symbolizes your keen attention, full concentration and focus. We will discuss more on mindfulness in one of our subsequent posts. But we will briefly discuss it here to make the point concerning how to be more productive. Once you are mindful, you are more responsive and energetic. Your body, mind and soul are awakened and ready to receive divine messages from the Universe. At this stage, you will be compelled to do only what is right and relevant. You will be able to listen and yield to the voice of the soul which has all the information we need to grow as human beings and of course discover our purpose and be more productive. It resonates our soul with the Universe. It gives us peace and improve our memory system. Being mindful fuels our passion, inspires us more to act now! There is a sense of urgency and responsibility when we are mindful.  We are able to set our goals, plan effectively and consistently, consequently we get to fulfill our purposes upon discovery of the purposes.

4. Practice: This is similar to applying the knowledge mentioned above but a bit more. Here, you have to be steady with the principle 2 which is applying your knowledge to real life situations. If you read about how to improve your memory system, your memory system will get improved only when you apply the knowledge, not just once but continuously till you master it and it has become a habit. It is stated that it takes 21 days to form a particular habit so this is a bonus knowledge, that is, you have to keep practising for a couple of days, your brain adjusts to this reality and you are conditioned to keep up with the habits. All of our behaviors today were formed through conditioning and persistent practice. We can get rid of all unfavorable attitudes, all we need is mindfulness, determination and constant practice. With the right knowledge and constant practice you will be more productive and continue to gradually uncover and live your purpose.

You need to understand that its a gradual process, the discovery and fulfillment are a lifetime journey but you need to ensure at every phase there is a fruitful outcome, hold on, keep it up, be fierce and fearless, you will keep growing and you will continue to progress in your journey of your discovery and achievements. LAMP is the secret of all the great leaders. They keep learning, apply their knowledge, adopt mindfulness and continue practising by repeating the cycle over and over again.

“ProInSafe is fully known as Promoting Internet Safety. The Organization is created to promote credible businesses, cyber security and to empower the youths to be self reliant and self actualized. This organization is indeed innovative in Nigeria and is dedicated to take all credible businesses to the peak.  proInSafe provides concrete ways to promote internet safety. The organization will provide job opportunities, encourage start ups and innovations. ProInSafe will mitigate risks of online business scam. To facilitate our operations, we have incorporated Empowerment Projects to support and mentor youths to initiate start ups, be great leaders, innovate and be self employed. One of our projects is PLACY club fully known as ProInSafe Leadership And Community Youth, where we mentor and impact leadership skills unto secondary school students to help them discover and develop themselves to be more productive.  As we all know that Nigeria is potentially a great country because we are endowed with amazing resources, however the country is in misery due to bad leadership and unpleasant attitudes of many people especially our leaders in the country. This program will train the students and prepare them for the present and the future, also the club involves engaging the students in community development services. This indeed will contribute to rapid sustainable community development and National growth while developing the youths to be great leaders”

She ended her presentation by thanking all the people present at the occasion. Everyone appreciated her presentation and she entertained few questions. Questions and answer to these questions are found below.

  1. Can illiterates register with ProInSafe?

Ans: Definitely yes! ProInSafe in fact focuses more on helping individuals with less experience in ICT, digital marketing and the likes but who desire online presence to promote their businesses and get their business across to larger crowd. Our competent staff and experts are ready to get your business to the limelight as they continue to strategically publicize ProInSafe and carefully verify businesses. All you need do is submit vital information about you and your business for ProInSafe to validate and promote your business.

  1. What is the benefit of ProInSafe over radio advert?

Ans: The world is going digital, Nigeria is one of the countries that rates very high in internet usage. Both educated and uneducated people are on social media. People have formed the habits of going straight to Google search engine to search for particular products/services even before they ask the person that’s next to them. ProInSafe therefore helps to build a trusted online presence. ProInSafe charges very affordable fee that last forever so far the business is legitimate and you continue to operate the business. Therefore your business is always visible online that is, the advert is continously ongoing.  Registration with ProInSafe is highly recommended if you have or desire online presence, the YAS code generated is an identity of your credibility and will make your adverts through other media more effective. Internet is a very fast and effective tool to create awareness about businesses and to get access to potential consumers. Online advert often increases patronages. ProInSafe aims to enable all business owners exploit the medium to grow their businesses.

However, some people abuse these opportunities and they exploit the medium for their selfish use by scamming people. Online consumers now find it hard trusting online businesses that they lose even accurate opportunities. Despite their paranoia, some people still fall victims of scam because business scammers have crafty ways of arousing interests of consumers, by advertising fake great offers, impersonating other businesses etc. With ProInSafe, business owners easily convince consumers of their credibility.

We must understand that ProInSafe sole aim is to regulate the affairs of online businesses in order to promote internet safety, the advertisement service is only a value added service. There is Vconnect too but even this doesn’t serve our purpose, we exist to serve as online business regulatory organization, that provides all legitimate businesses an identify for their credibility and mitigate risks of business scam.

  1. ProInSafe officially started business operation in 2019, can you tell us how many businesses you have registered?

Ans: We have registered close to 12 businesses within two 6 weeks of establishment.

  1. How does your adverts get to illiterates?

Ans: Like I said earlier, all we are concerned about is the internet. Both literates and illiterates use one or more social media, therefore these people that are online will get to see the adverts of your business. In addition to that people who get information online often disseminate the information to people around them. This way information can as well be passed across to the very few people who have no online presence.

  1. How will ProInSafe achieve all its goals?

Ans: We continue to seek for support from governmental agencies, reputable entities and other investors, with adequate funds and infrastructures, competent staff/experts, strong marketing, we will get everyone (online business owners) to cooperate with us by registering to get their YAS codes. We will realize our vision, risks of business scam will be mitigated, only credible businesses will thrive more and digital marketing will be very more effective.

  1. What are your criteria for legitimate business:

Ans: The business must sell what it claims to sell, the information provided such as personal details and business information must be verifiable and confirmed by a relative/random third party to be true.

  1. What are your means of advertisement?

Ans: We post your businesses on our social media pages: twitter, instagram, facebook, LinkedIn, Whatsapp etc. We also advertise (we charge differently for this) by placing your business adverts on our website. Our website is quite trusted therefore consumers are more likely to patronize businesses found on our website.

Barr Sarafadeen Ibadan presenting chairman speech

Subsequently, the Chairman, Barrister Sarafadeen Ibrahim gave a welcome address as follow:

“I greet the distinguished guests and everyone present here today. Before I proceed I must introduce myself, I am Barrister Sarafadeen Ibrahim representing Professor Shuaib Oba AbdulRaheem. Prof would have loved to personally atrend this program but could not due to urgent national assignment. On behalf of Prof Shuaib Oba, I want to sincerely aplogize for his absence. I have with me a prepared speech to be presented by the Chairman but I will do that presently. But before I do that, it is pertinent for me to give remarks.

 

As a lawyer, I know that the present government is doing a lot to arrest cyber crimes and indeed the whole of Nigeria now is suspecting all businesses that have something to do with internet. But I want to assure this august gathering that not all businesses on internet is criminal or illegal, one of these legal online businesses is ProInSafe Organization. I want to tell us that there are a lot of legitimate opportunities on the internet that we must exploit. With ProInSafe we can safely do that.

 

In fact, I must commend the initiatives of the founders and team of ProInSafe because I know that myself, I have not gotten to the bus stop of learning. In fact, education has been described as progressive discovery of ignorance. We continue to learn as humans. The Prophet (S A W) has said it all that we learn from cradle to grave. Therefore it is not too much for us even as adults to key in into ProInSafe Organization. Once again, I congratulate the ProInSafe team and I want to encourage all of us to be partakers in the project.

 

Having said that, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to this occasion of the Grand Opening of an innovative Nigerian Organization, PROINSAFE. I am particularly thankful to our special guests of honour and everyone who is here today. I would like to express our sincere appreciation to every person who has supported the organization.

 

I welcome in a special way, all our clients and potential clients. We are here to formally bring to a limelight, the organization which would encourage hardworking Nigerians who are entrepreneurs and protect people from falling victim of business frauds.

 

ProInSafe is happy to have everyone on ground. It is our utmost hope and belief that everyone here shares the same vision with us as we build a Nigeria where entrepreneurs get appropriate reward for their initiative and consumers safely transact and get the real value of what they pay for.

 

With the ProInSafe initiated empowerment program, community development will be facilitated, innovations encouraged and youths will be trained to become great leaders .Finally, I want to encourage us to sit back, relax, learn and gain  maximally from this launching. Thanks and God bless you!!!”

Dr Oniye presents self-development coaching at ProInSafe Launching

Dr AbdulRazaq Oniye on Self-Development Coaching

“Permit me to stand on well established protocol, I greet ProInSafe team, the distinguished guests and all the people that are seated here today. .Good evening to everyone.  I am invited to discuss self-development. Self development basically helps us to become more aware of our talents, potentials and help to bring to the fore issue of human capital development. This awareness facilitates employability and ensures that we are able to contribute to personal and national development. Self  development involves steps taken to discover/identify your talent, strengths and other attributes that will help you to fulfil your purpose in this life because obviously we all are existing to fulfil certain purpose. Many people are unable to progress in life because of their inability to identify their talents, some people are gifted in writing, some have oratory power, when they talk you are mesmerized and amazed.

You must identify various areas you are talented, is it writing, statistics, entrepreneurship, sport, speaking etc. Self development implies you know your talents.  Closely related to that is the issue potential, we all do not have the same potentials. That’s why some people thrive in a particular field of endeavors and others do not….”

To read the full inspirational speech on self development, go to ProInSafe Blog. Finally he thanked everyone and had his seat. Everyone was so excited that they promptly applauded him. It was obvious that everyone got enlightened by the lectures presented by both guests, while the lectures were ongoing, people apparently paid attention, locked their eyes on the lecturers, nodded, smiled, laughed at amusing words and most importantly people were seen jotting down.

More so preaching what I practise is easier than practising what I preach, therefore it is amazing that my actions match with my words and that inspires constructive changes in other people as well. Oops! Sorry, I had to say this much (smiles)

 

 

INTRODUCTION TO A NIGERIAN INNOVATIVE ORGANIZATION-PROINSAFE

INTRODUCTION TO A NIGERIAN INNOVATIVE ORGANIZATION-PROINSAFE

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROINSAFE PRESENTED AT PROINSAFE LAUNCHING EVENT.

Introduction

The damage caused by cybercrime is estimated to hit $6 trillion by the year 2021. This has led to a forecast that there will be an estimated increase in spending by companies for cyber security between the periods of 2017 and 2021 to $1 trillion. According to Gartner, as at 2016, more than $80 billion was spent on products and services related to cyber security. This is however expected to exceed $1 trillion globally within a five-year period.

As a matter of fact, the cyber security industry is one that is fast paced as there is zero percent unemployment rates in this industry. The industry in fact has unfilled positions that are expected to reach 1.5 million by the year 2019. This shows that there is severe shortage of talent especially as more cybercrimes are being committed almost every other day.

Despite the fact that cyber security companies can easily be found in the United States of America and in the cyberspace, does not in any way make the industry to be over saturated. The fact that there are people and organizations out there who would always need the professional services of cyber security companies from time to time to sort out cyber security related issues et al makes the business ever green….Adapted from profitable venture.com

However cyber security company has not fully gained ground in Nigeria, we need to feel the impact of this industry because it has so much to offer Nigeria in both security and economy sector.

ProInSafe stemmed out because of this, the purpose of creating this innovative organization is to create  a safe and prosperous environment for all to thrive.

ProInSafe fully known as Promoting Internet Safety is an innovative profit making organization in Nigeria (its our dream to expand far beyond this country) and it exists to strategically promote internet safety while providing supports and empowerment for youths to achieve self actualization and self reliance in a credible way.

Significance

Few or many of us here today have or know someone who has fallen victims of scam businesses. No matter how wealthy someone is, it is such a bad idea losing money in such a pathetic way. Its not enough to lose money but we tend to experience emotional breakdowns as a result, which may result into depression or paranoia; inability to trust even credible businesses.

As much as people tried to discard this idea because they believed it was impossible or an herculean task. We still decided to venture into it because of our passion to resolve a problem (cyber crime and unemployment)  that is an impetus to many other societal difficulties reflecting in the socio-economic state of the country. However our passion is not enough, we continue to progress with the strong support of our great Father known as Father of The Universe. Without him nothing would have been in existence.

Therefore cybercrime is not a problem to be swept under the carpet. No matter how huge/difficult/expensive the task appears, we must start from somewhere and as soon as possible to prevent the problems from escalating. Cyber Security Expert of Nigeria also raised  that concrete solution must be provided to mitigate the issue of cybercrime. This statement is one of the driving forces behind the existence of ProInSafe. During our feasibility studies, we discovered more than 50% of entrepreneurs require our services. In fact with a month of our establishment, we have about 10 clients already. This explains that our services are valuable and our target market is quite huge and responsive. With these businesses’ cooperation, our goals will be achieved.

For example, we had to start using the house as our office since much of our work is online based, many of our meetings are online as well.  The staff working with ProInSafe are volunteers (who only have access to certain remuneration for their duties) at the moment but we hope that as we progress  they will be full time employees because they are highly skilled and competent they deserve to earn handsome salaries.

We use strategic measures to verify and validate businesses.  Our website is well secured and we are less vulnerable to such cyber hazard as hacking even though this cannot  be prevented. If such ever happened we have put it in place measures to prevent great havoc. Part of our project will involve supporting technological researches and innovations to proffer lasting solutions to cyber and other related crimes and dangers. Your personal info are safe with ProInSafe, most definitely unless security reasons call for sharing your details with the third party.

Experience maximum safety and prosperity with ProInSafe.

The unemployment rate in Nigeria is a painful reality, and the higher this gets the more problems  surface in Nigeria. Many people resolved to cyber crime because of lack of job opportunity. ProInSafe then incorporates empowerment program to support startups and youths who are committed to community development services.

Our empowerment program known as ProInSafe Empowerment Projects (PEP) exists to encourage innovations, promote leadership skills amongst the youths and also facilitate sustainable community development. Our attitudes must be reformed to foster growth in the society. Our projects and empowerment program therefore support ventures that seek to solve relevant problems affecting the society especially as it regards mental wellbeing, poverty, unemployment rate and environmental sanitation. In addition to this, ProInSafe post registered schools and their relevant activities on its website and social media pages to publicize them more. In fact it is our interest to train students to engage in casual journalism, in which they go to certain educational occasions, gather and report information. This is to provide valuable experience and exposure to students who are interested in mass communication and relevant fields.

Our current project is PLACY Club, an empowerment program that focuses on secondary schools in Nigeria. We select students from different schools to participate in the program  and engage in projects to resolve mini problems affecting the community. This project involves exploiting youths as tools for sustainable development of the community. We will focus on environmental sanitation, quality education, vocational training, leadership training, mentorship & counselling and poverty alleviation. Building their attitudes from tender age is a great benefit for the society as the actions of people determine the status quo of every society.

Presentation at ProInSafe Launching

ProInSafe Launching

ProInSafe major goals are:

  • To mitigate online scam businesses, hence promote internet safety
  • To reduce unemployment rates
  • To encourage innovations
  • To create an enabling environment where all diligent and sincere youths (including entrepreneurs) thrive.
  • Facilitate the achievement of SDGs definitely. We have SDG in mind in our operations.

We are willing to adopt every means that’s of course legal to achieve these goals. The vision which is to create a safe digital world and facilitate economic growth of the country;  mission which involves the implementation of the plan relevant to our goals.

Some of the means include to:

  • Analyze and establish security requirements for our systems/networks
  • Defend systems against unauthorized access, modification and/or destruction
  • Configure and support security tools such as firewalls, anti-virus software, patch management systems, etc.
  • Define access privileges, control structures and resources
  • Perform vulnerability testing, risk analyses and security assessments
  • Identify abnormalities and report violations to higher authorities
  • Oversee and monitor routine security administration
  • Develop and update business continuity and disaster recovery protocols
  • Partner with relevant governmental agencies and organizations e.g Cyber security forums , CAC,  etc.
  • Employ highly intelligent and skilled professionals
  • Train fellow employees in security awareness, protocols and procedures
  • Design and conduct security audits to ensure operational security
  • Respond immediately to security incidents and provide post-incident analysis
  • Research and recommend security upgrades
  • Provide technical advice to colleagues
  • With our facilities, structures and infrastructures, we will achieve our mission and realize our vision.

There are many benefits to ProInSafe but I will summarize the benefits here right now. Many of us here today have great products and services and trust me more than half of those you advertise to need these products and services, but only less than a quarter of these people patronizes you. Two reasons cause this either the consumers do not have enough money to purchase or they keep procrastinating till they forget to patronize but the latter is not so relevant because what you truly need you will get it, so the second major problem is lack of trust due to the prevalent issue of online scam.

Everyone cannot stop asking is this business legit? Often the answer to this is “I don’t think so” because even though comments and recommendations on the website can be deceptive. I have a few friends who have fallen victims. And ever since you will not find them purchasing online except through Jumia. Some businesses rely more on referrals , this as well works but what if someone needs your product or services but do not know someone that can refer you to them or recommend them to you. Is this not sad. Are you as a business owner not gradually losing income.

Not everyone is as reputable as Jumia, entrepreneurs are really coming up because that appears to be the trending solution to unemployment which of course is a wise step to take to develop our communities and advance the economy of the state. However many of these entrepreneurs face digital marketing challenges, one of which is losing potential customers/clients to “bizaporia;” which implies inability to trust the credibility of a truly credible business.

Many people because of these challenges feel discouraged to own a business and even if they do they are unable to enjoy the advantage of the internet for their business. Internet circulates information faster, so as business owners we cannot avoid it, and this is a reason we must proffer a solution to the problem.  Other countries are into this similar venture, we decided it must exist here in Nigeria as well.

ProInSafe  encourages the credible entrepreneurs by helping them to convince their potential customers. This is a great deal that cannot be overlooked. The more investments we have, the lesser unemployment rate we battle with. The secret to the economic development of other countries is in their countless business investments, start ups and private business sectors. Firstly this takes the business owner out of the huge number of unemployed youths, most importantly these businesses will be able to employ others. Gradually gradually we are advancing the economy of the country. ProInSafe has potential to hire more than 800 individuals as  we progress. Graduates keep increasing but limited opportunities exist. The solution to this is more investments, to provide job opportunities to hire more and more youths. Someone here or someone you know could be this youth that will be hired.

ProInSafe aims to expand across Africa if not the world, that’s the vision, that is every business must be regulated by ProInSafe, get their code to easily convince their potential online consumers of their credibility, make more sales, maximize profits and contribute to our goals to mitigate the risks of business scam. We will increase online visibility of businesses.

As we progress we hope to innovate soft wares and gadgets that will specifically be used to detect scams and facilitate our works that we may even replicate to sell to others. We will realize our dreams if we get support from you all, and others who are not privileged to be here. We ask you to discuss ProInSafe with them all. As we get endorsements, supports especially from government and reputable entities and of course an investor or adequate funding, our operations will be facilitated and we will get to realize our vision.

In conclusion, ProInSafe is registered with appropriate bodies. Our RC number is . We are focused on empowering youths and to support entrepreneurship in Nigeria. I must mention that we aim to dedicate certain percentage of our profits to support start-ups. We also aim to link up credible start ups with investors. There are investors willing to support start ups, they only need a medium to be sure these start ups are indeed genuine, lucrative and sustainable. We will ensure to link up only start ups that meet up with these criteria. We are willing to implement all relevant policies to achieve our goals. ProInSafe will function optimally with adequate facilities and support from notable people and firms in Nigeria. We thereby seek supports from these agencies to support and invest in our innovative organization. For more information about ProInSafe, please visit www.proinsafe.com. Thank you.
