Just Thinking…

If Rev. Awasum Is Not An Apostle for Christ, then He Is An Apostle for Colonialism? – Boh Herbert

If Rev. Awasum Is Not An Apostle for Christ, then He Is An Apostle for Colonialism? – Boh Herbert

Short of being able to witness from the altar of God, Rev. Awasum seems to have enrolled as a disciple of colonialism. Here is the colonialism gospel he now preaches. He wrote: “Colonization was the seed of enlightenment and education that liberated primitive Cameroonians/Africans and transformed their lives forever.” Ma mami eeeeeh! Rev. Awasum argues that it is instead Cameroonians ... Read More »

Sanusi’s Suspension: Jonathan and Co Ought To Bury Their Heads In Shame – Femi Fani-Kayode

This government has once again shown that it has no shame and that it is utterly bereft of any semblance of decency or morality. A man blows the whistle and exposes the fact that 20 billion USD has been stolen and instead of commending him and promoting him he is accused of wrongdoing, criminalised, vilified and suspended. It is only ... Read More »

Slave Mentality: Nigerian Posts Advert Thanking President For Appointing A Yoruba Man As Chief of Staff

One of my twitter friends Akintayo Adisa @akintayoadisa copied me in this. I could not help but share it. This is 2014 but people still post shameless things like this. Like Feyi Fawehinmi said, “we are finished in Nigeria.” Many are not likely to argue against that. How is this act different from what a slave would do? Read More »

Lest We Forget – El-Amin Yusuf Alronawy

  Lest we forget, we are in a country called Nigeria. So one should be careful of what he/she may critically say about this administration that plans to land in jail whosoever shall criticise its style and conducts.

The Nigerian Police And Poverty: A Personal Encounter – El-Kator

The Nigerian Police And Poverty: A Personal Encounter – El-Kator

From observing Police officers in all parts of the country randomly stopping road users for the singular purpose of extortion I prayed never to have any dealings with any uniformed officer. If that prayer was answered, the answer expired last year. There was a theft towards the end of the year and I had to make a report at the ... Read More »

#KakandaTemple ~ The Future Awards and its Misrepresentation of the Nigerian Youth

        I have absolute confidence in the strength and ability of the Nigerian youth. All over the world, the Nigerian youth is a newsmaker, known for exhibiting talent, using his brain either to redeem or to reduce whichever system he is in. The Nigerian youth, despite having bad role models, has defied setbacks and limitations to climb ... Read More »

Fighting Social Anomalies with Information Campaigns in Nigeria By Rees Chikwendu

Fighting Social Anomalies with Information Campaigns in Nigeria By Rees Chikwendu

The media is relatively powerless when it comes to bringing attitudinal change; especially behaviors entrenched in the psychological sphere of the uninformed within a society. However, media can pierce armors of preconceptions if its targets, themes, appeals, and vehicles are wisely aligned. Therefore, it is possible for information campaigns to succeed in reducing traditional social ills such as corruption, sexual ... Read More »

Femi Fani-Kayode, Lagos, the Igbo and the Misinformed – Shola Adebowale

There was an essay written by one seemingly grossly misinformed Ayokunle Odekunle titled ”A Rejoinder On The Igbos- Of Femi Fani-Kayode’s Ignorance and Proud Display Of It”, that I saw on Comrade Biafra’s Facebook wall and in one or two website magazines yesterday.  So many issues were raised as regards the piece written by Chief Femi Fani-Kayode titled – ”Lagos, the Igbo and the Servants Of Truth” and ...
