Say No to Cattle Colonies

If there is any quick route to civil unrest and more bloodshed in Nigeria, it is the establishment of the Cattle Colony policy being proposed by the Federal Government.

The 2018 Agenda

The New Year 2018 is gradually becoming old. The month of January is about to end. When a boy grows older, he is called a man. If a boy is called Bomboy as a little boy, should he not change his name to Bomman when he grows older? I brought out the picture I took when I was in class ...

Red Lights

On a very good Monday morning, I was on transit passing through the Eke Awka round-about. As early as it was, there was enough traffic congestion to remind me that I was in Awka, the capital city of Anambra State.

And Buhari Continues to Marvel us…

I have never been a fan of Gen Muhammadu Buhari. I never was, never have been and never will be. I believe I made this very crystal during the election that ushered in his government.

Welcome to Nigeria

I was in SS2 when a Corp member told us of his of journey into the University. He had written JAMB for eight good years without admission. Not that he was not intelligent or that he wasn’t reaching the cut-off mark for his course. During those years, he equipped himself with skills hoping to pay his school fees when he ...

New Year, Same Problems

We are in a new year when we are supposed to jettison our old bad habits and turn a new leaf. As a nation, we badly need to turn a new leaf based on the many ugly incidents that rocked the nation last year. On New Year’s Eve, Nigerians joined their counterparts the world over to perform the ritual of ...

New Year, New Hopes

It is a brand new year and we are indeed, privileged to be part of it. Not many who wished to see it succeeded. Some saw it but did not outlive the day. For those who have seen it and are still alive today, they can only give God the glory. The past year had been a trying one for ...
