I am moved by the rate at which many people have died – and are dying - from ignorance. Ignorance is a state of being uninformed, having no understanding, knowledge, education, or awareness.

The various workshops I have attended, locally and internationally, also exposed me to some of the findings presented in this book. In this work I have adopted simple diction, to avoid any complications in theme, message or delivery. I know my target audience – students, teachers, parents, unemployed, physically challenged, business men & women, government officials, political office holders, administrators, girl-child, and boy-child. It is not my wish to write for writing sake, but rather, to convey a message.

My days as a classroom teacher and a school administrator were all dedicated to the ultimate grooming of the leaders of tomorrow, most of whom I am proud to note are successful today. Most of them I am honoured to say, humble me with their pride of my being their mentor. With what
