Chat with N.K. David

N.K. David is a great doyen and one of the Nigerian-born writers who are influencing the globe positively. We have read his books and articles which are life-impacting. When team Hinovelty Met with him, we discovered that he is very lively, understanding and an inspiring personality who is honest and humble. He is a great leader who believes that if we all can play our parts well, the world will be a better place for all to live in.

Below is our chat with this great maven, enjoy it.

1. Hinovelty: Please sir, introduce yourself to us?

N. K. David: I am an international Author and I am in my last stage of training in the Veterinary profession. I was born in the Eastern part of Nigeria, which is regarded as the Christian part of the country. I have, personally, passed through a lot of struggles especially, in my academic life because of a corrupt educational system. I had to stand and fight against the corrupt educational system. I am glad that some people in the sector answered my call and worked to change the system but unfortunately, the change is always in progress. It was during the struggle and in my quest for answers from higher planes of existence that my first book, “It is time we truly know why Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus,” was born and published to predict the end of the struggle and to send some messages to humanity. I hope to publish the true-life story of the struggle in a book, “Proffered solution to the problem with Nigeria: Where Chinua Achebe stopped.” I have currently published five books.

I grew up in a Christian family and I witnessed many hate speeches among various Christian sects. Consequently, I saw the need for freedom and religious tolerance, equity and justice for all. It is a shame that man is divided by religion just as man was once divided by the color of his skin. That is one thing I trust we can change our sense of reasoning and understanding of religion and how it affects our relationship with our fellow man. My principle is base on the Golden rule.

I was interviewed by Indies in Motion a global radio station that features rising stars. I made Golden Nugget on muttonline. and I have an accolades like the most engaging writer on hubpages where I blog. My debut book, “It is Time we truly know why Jesus wept” made it in UBAWA (Urban Book Authors and Writers of America) best first 50 books of 2013.

 

2. Hinovelty: What are your selling points?

 N.K. David: the inspiration to new ideas yet unknown to many.

 

3. Hinovelty: What inspires you?

N.K. David: What inspired me to write my first book is different from what inspired me to write my third book and so on. However, in general my inspiration is my desire to send messages across to humanity and my quest to help create a more peaceful world united in the brotherhood of man.

 

4. Hinovelty: You are a medico and a writer, how do you combine this two tasking things?

N.K. David: well it is not so easy being in a medical training profession or practicing and being a writer. There are times one has to go on ambulatory services or be on call duty or hospital duty or public health duty and, you know, we keep studying and learning each day so that we can improve ourselves in our various professions. The profession involves hard work and I am glad that I am not found wanting.

In as much as we may not write all day but we need to think and make use of our imagination. It means many things happen in the same brain and that is the fun of it. There is also the need to always keep abreast with my fans on social media.

 

5. Hinovelty: Please tell us names of your published book and which bookstore(s)
can they be purchased?

N.K. David: Currently, I have published five books and the books –

It is time we truly know why Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus

My Game: The Switch

Formula for reincarnation (Rebirth equation)

Most perfect exchange: The cost of liberty”

Noble Killers: Left Eye” are available on Amazon and other global bookstores.

 

6. Hinovelty: Among all your published books, which is your favorite read?

N.K.David: (chuckles.) This is a difficult question because it is like asking a mother her favorite child when she knows that she has wonderful children. Even though they may differ in various ways, yet each of them carries her gene of greatness. That little gene is what separates them from other bloodlines. However, if I must choose then I shall give it to my first book, “It is time we truly know why Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus.” This is because it is a book that was born out of struggle and it has inspired many lives. The book continues to inspire me each time I read it.

7. Hinovelty: You have written many books but, recently you released ‘Noble
Killers: Left Eye‘. What do you want to achieve through this book?

N.K. David: I am fortunate that Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha, a leader at Hinovelty wrote the foreword of this great book so it is a plus to the book. Moreover, the book was, recently, among muttonline book of the month for May/June 2014. The book exposed the main problems in Nigeria and some other countries. Then the book also pointed to the way out of the situation. Consequently, the book is a wake up call with the primary objective of opening the eyes of Nigerians and Africans. That is if we want to stop being sick. We no longer have to pretend that we are not the cause of our problems. I know there are good and honest people in Nigeria but they need to be brave enough to act. It is not going to be easy changing the tradition over night but we must start somewhere.

8. Hinovelty: Is Nigeria a failed state?

N.K. David: If I say ‘Yes or No’, some people will not understand why. The reason is that most Nigerians do not understand what patriotism means so to such people it is wrong to speak ill of one’s country. Unfortunately, many of them are same people who turn the country into a mess so they do not want the ugly picture to get outside the country. Then for those who ignorantly support them, I want them to know that those who have the courage to, openly, condemn corruption do so not to destroy the country’s image but so that we know that, we have a problem and then look for a way out of the problem. That is the best form of patriotism. We can only look for a cure if we admit that we are sick. Nigeria failed in many ways. For instance, it is because of security failure that we have the Boko Haram situation in the country. This is because the wealthy Nigerians and politicians have their own security so the Government failed to protect the streets and the citizens. Now the streets have become so dirty that the security agencies do not know what is happening in various houses. They do not have the data or the intelligences.

The worst part of it is that Nigerians claim to be most religious country even more religious than the white men that introduced the religion yet one of the most corrupt countries in the world. When did it become wise for corruption and religion to increase in the same proportion? I once wrote an article in which I wonder if the corrupt Nigerian leaders do not belong to any religion.

9. Hinovelty: You are an advocate of religious tolerance, how do you think
Nigeria can overgrow and overcome religious bias and ethnicity which
is the root cause of its problem?

N.K. David: the main thing I do is to do my best to treat people, as I would want them to treat me. That is the golden rule that is in all world major religions yet it is the only law that is ignored. In Christianity Jesus, himself, not Paul or others said, “Do unto others as you would want done to you. That is the law and the prophets.” Moses in Judaism said it in his own way but what I like most in his statement is that he said, “ the summary of everything is treat others as you want to be treated. Every other thing is commentary.”

In my work on religious tolerance, I stated the way forward. The primary way out is for the religious leaders and preachers to change their pattern of teaching. This is because it is their teachings that make their members to see others as enemies. Even among Christians, there is a big problem. It is obvious that each religious sect wants to grow in number and that is where the problem starts because they continue to preach why they are better than others instead of preaching the common virtues like love, peace, unity, justice among others.

It is because of religious intolerance/bias and ethnicity that Nigerians are concern about the next president. This is because the country is only united in the maps and on paper. This is where the biblical injunction of “a nation divided against itself shall not stand.” It means the religious leaders have a lot of work to do in their various religious settings if they want to help the country.

10. Hinovelty: Recently, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in a media chat said corruption and stealing are not the same thing. Do you see Mr. President as the leadership messiah Nigeria desperately need?

N.K. David: I heard people saying that Mr. President made such comment and I wonder if it is a joke. Well, it depends on the way he looked at it. May be, he decided to use stealing when a leader steals public fund then he uses corruption when a leader abuses his powers. The only bad news here is that what he is just trying to tell us is that the Nigerian leaders steal and are corrupt. Therefore, next time we mention corruption, we do not forget to add stealing. It is not easy to be the President of a country but, he I do not think he has done enough especially in cases of missing fund, excessive spending, etc. He may not be responsible for most of them happening but, how he handles the situation is vital.

11. Hinovelty: Is any profession or career greater than another?

N.K. David: I do not think any profession is better than the other profession. This is because it all depends on an individual in the profession and not on the profession. For instance, a painter that loves painting and does his work well with commitment can go places than a medical doctor who does not put much effort in his profession. Consequently, it is all about doing what you love and enjoy doing.

 

12. Hinovelty: Who are the people that influenced your life – mentors/role models?

N.K. David: Men like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Nelson Mandela among other men that lived and stood for something in the interest of all.

13. Hinovelty: In three words describe your family?

N.K. David: A wonderful family

14. Hinovelty: If you are to change one thing in Nigeria, what will that be?

N.K. David: The vision of Nigerians especially the leaders.

15. Hinovelty: Some people write to make money or become famous, why do you write
and which other writers do you like their works?

N.K. David: well, I write to send a message that will make us think and encourage us to continue working and fighting for a positive change so that someday when the struggle is over, the world will recall my inks on papers.

16. Hinovety: How do you spend your free time?

N.K. David: This is one thing I never really thought about because I do not set aside any time as free time. However, I can go for a sport, join my friends and fans on social media, read and write among others

17. Hinovelty: What’s your advice to youths?

N.K. David: it is obvious that many of us are in a very deep narcosis so I think it is time for us to wake up. The most unfortunate aspect is that the youths are not thinking differently from the leaders. That is most of us will not make any difference if given an opportunity to lead this great nation because we think corruption is a norm. That is if one is not corrupt then it means one is a fool or not sharp, in the parlance of the youths. We know that it is wrong for youths who expect change in their generation to fail to change the cause of their problems. It is because ignorance that many youths sell their birthright during elections for a pot of porridge by helping to rig elections. Basically, the change should start from the youths because we are the leaders of tomorrow. That is we have to be the change we want to see.
