BENUE YOUTH HANG OUT 2017

 

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt.
 
As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.
 
“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.
 
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?
 
How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us?
 
How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?
 
This is our Benue Our future, the past seems ugly, though, we can change it. the time is here for us to break away from the chains of untold hardship, our sufferings are overdue, We can breakaway from that elephant rope that our grand parents and uncles have tied us with,
 
Arise Benue Youth,
Those who do not move, do not notice their chains.
 
Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
 
Talk Make I Talk, Make Benue Better!

A Power of Attorney/Authorization of Agent Form would be completed in favor of such local Agent, as the enabling instrument to act for the principal/ Applicant.

2. After filing the application for trade mark registration, the Registrar issues an official acknowledgement reflecting the official number and filing date of the application.

3. A search is conducted so as to confirm if it is different from existing or pending registration. If the Registrar finds the trademark acceptable for registration, the applicant will be furnished with a letter/notice of acceptance.

4. Every trade mark application must be advertised in the Nigerian Trademark Journal, and is open to opposition for a period of two (2) months from the date of advertisement.

5. If no objections are received within the specified period or no objections are sustained, the Registrar will issue the applicant with a certificate of registration.

6. When issued, the Registration Certificate will have the date of initial filing of registration

7. Nigerian trade mark registrations have an initial validity of seven (7) years, and are thereafter indefinitely renewable for periods of fourteen (14) years. An application for renewal should be made not less than three (3) months from the due date.

You’ll work in teams of typically 3 – 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of the client engagement.
 
This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations. You’ll also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.

Following your BA tenure, assuming good performance, you will move into a post-graduate school role.
