WHAT THE NIGERIAN REVOLUTION IS NOT ABOUT

The Nigerian revolution has taken off well. However you look at it, it is not necessarily a big bang. So many players are yet to be sure of what is happening. As expected, the stages have taken off well but danger lies ahead if we do not make demands on those who will benefit from the transitional stages of the struggle, those whose fate brings them to midwife the process of change.

The Hypocrisy of Raising Money for The Haiti Disaster

It is, unfortunately, that time in the world again. A disaster happened and the rich people of the UK and America are trying to outdo each other in being proclaimed heroes and philanthropists. Only it is all self-serving, hypocrisy and… Continue

I PLEDGE TO NIGERIA MY COUNTRY.

How many of our leaders have pledged their loyalty to their father land? So many of them after taking the oath of allegiance to their father land have suddenly taken up a display of hatred and oppression towards the people that voted them into power. "I pledge to Nigeria My Country...", those are the words of allegiance to the nation, instead the nation was the one pledging her loyalty to our bugs-belly politicians, who have turned the nation's coffers into a bank account of their own. The best… Continue

THE GATHERING OF THE POMPOUS EMINENT

Look at what is Nigeria of today, 70% ex-military and past bands of auto-proclaimed Elders parading themselves to be eminent, without any singularity, traits of neither virtue nor wisdom.

EDUCATION AND NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA

Education in a broad sense is a process by which an individual acquires the many physical and social capabilities demanded by the society in which he/she is born into to function.

In an ideal sense, education is an ultimate value and hence, through the provision of social service, it is an agent of change.



It is to a nation what the mind is to the body, just as a diseased mind is handicapped in the coordination and direction of the bodily activities. Therefore, the single most… Continue

WHEN THE DAY IS GONE(A Poem)

When the day is gone,

I look back at all my works undone.

A friend I promised a visit,and-

my loved one I promised a day out.

These promises i never fulfiled,

it was not my fault cause the day seems so short.



When the day is gone,

I stare through the office window-

just to catch a glimpse of the sun sailing home.

The once busy street deserted,

market women bidiing one another a restful night.

The street touts running after men in… Continue

An utterance from within(A Poem)

So many have been stolen-

And our faces are swollen-

From tears and the furnace of hopelessness

Which our people have subjected their fatherland.



When the breeze blew,

We seem not to have enough of it.

When the farm harvest grew-

We seem not to have enough to eat.

So many things are wrong-

In this land, we seem not to belong!



Today it is “operation eradicate poverty”

No fresh air of freedom-

But the touch of Spasm

That… Continue

RE-TRAIN NIGERIAN CONSULATE STAFF IN NEW YORK (PASSPORT SECTION)

Whenever you need information from this department, it is like walking through hell. Send them an email, they will never reply you. Call 2128502275 (which they provided on their website), nobody ever picks up. Try leaving a voice mail, the voice mail is always full.
