Osun-Osogbo: The Goddess Is Missing – By @Obajeun

The noise grew in pitch, in rhythmic cadence. As I drove through an adjacent street to Gbodofon foyal, where Oranmiyan house dwarfed everything around, the crowd assemblage to illuminate the entire city that hosted the fleeing migrants following the fall of old Oyo Empire frenzied in excited gyration to different incursions of traditional rythms. From afar, my camera zoomed in ... Read More »

Please, Maintain Your Silence On Nigeria, You Hear? – JJ, Omojuwa

Please, Maintain Your Silence On Nigeria, You Hear? – JJ, Omojuwa

2015 is the year Nigerians are waiting for to have the country in the right hands. 2015 will come but even if the right hands get to be voted for – which is not likely – Nigeria will not take a marked turn from where it is today. There may be improvement in certain areas but that leadership that’d ensure ... Read More »

The Money These Governors Are Sharing… – JJ, Omojuwa

Thinking About Nigeria This Morning, Time To Ask The Government, ‘How Can We Be Of Help?’ – Omojuwa

Thinking About Nigeria This Morning, Time To Ask The Government, ‘How Can We Be Of Help?’ – Omojuwa

I am frustrated. Nigeria has reached breaking point. This is the point where we either come together united or perish together divided. What happened in Abuja yesterday could have killed an average person who lives in the city. That was not an outskirt town, that was right inside the city. We need to realise that if we don’t unite against ... Read More »

A Note To Governor Fashola: My Short Take On The LASU Fees Hike – JJ, Omojuwa

Governor Fashola has no moral justification to make LASU students pay N350,000 as school fees. How much did he pay as a University student at the University of Benin? Even if you calculate for inflation, it’d still not be anywhere close to the numbers he is unleashing on today’s and possibly tomorrow’s LASU students. We can debate this from now ... Read More »

This Is For You, Our Friends – Omojuwa

Save for when I was arrested by the Nigerian authorities, I haven’t received as many calls as I have in the last two days.

Before You Abuse Our Police And Soldiers – JJ, Omojuwa

We miss the point a lot. We expect police officers whose salaries can barely feed our own pets to be up and doing at dilapidated rat holes called police stations. When they leave their workplaces for the barracks, they stay in some of the most demeaning housing projects you’d see anywhere in the world. We want them to serve and ... Read More »

The report was prepared by The Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN), formerly the Nigerian Accounting Standards Board (NASB). The council operates ... Read More »
