The Valley of Humiliation

Amaka Amadi has spiky white streaks in her hair, silver rings on her fingers, and

wraparound Gucci sunglasses. All these make her a pretty typical 35 year-old lady, but not all

that typical of her age and identity, or any sign that shows that she walks through the valley of

humiliation. Amaka is a widow who has been egged on in the most graphic and indelible way

by a community service project called “widows with life “by a group of youths… Continue

Nigeria: A Nation with a Death Wish

“Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives … let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered” Eugene Lonesco…

Nigerian Youths Reject Rotational Presidency

Last week the New Nigeria Youth Movement met in Ghana to deliberate on recent events in Nigeria. The meeting venue was deliberately kept secret to avoid ‘disruption’ akin to the last one billed for Port Harcourt. I

could not make the trip but joined them on telephone conferencing. We had

earlier adopted new security measures because we are not sure of whom our

opposition is: Whether it is the Old Nigeria cabal or the new ruling clique

bent on…

VALUE RE-ENGINEERING: A Paradigm Necessity for Rebuilding Nigeria

This submission relies upon the contemplation that ATTITUDE is the 100% ingredient that all human 'internal architecture' requires for the formation of the ramification of our responses to all that we confront or confronts us. It is the reason for our behaviour, perception, belief system, receptivity, sensibility and sensitivity. It is the 'mother question' why we do what we do, think the way we do, go where we go etc.

This internal archictecture therefore is in dire need of…

Much ado about names

Naturally, the average Nigerian is culturally and traditionally sound. Despite the advent of westernisation, we still seem to hold on to some of our traditional values. One part of our culture that I find really interesting is our names. We believe that the name a person bears somehow plays a role in the kind of personality he/she will mould into. That is why we give names that have a positive meaning. A common example is Goodluck Jonathan. The man has just been lucky all his life. It is on… Continue

Message for Nigeria (part 2)

In Nigeria presently, there are those who are very comfortable despite the difficulties faced by so many others. It will be right to draw a conclusion that some of the comfortable ones

contribute greatly to the difficulties experienced by others because they aren’t

affected by reason of their status financially, politically and…

A call on Islamic faithful to save there religion against Barbarians!!!

I believe that the recent genocide in Jos, Plateau state, which ofcourse is still fresh in the minds of us who still care & believe in being our brothers keepers is as a result of some 'Islamic groups' who still find themselves in the coven of an 'acade form of inferiority complex' not having confident in there religious believes that they can convert there prospects with mere words of conversion, hence, to forcefully maim, brutalise & kill defendless women with their infant kids in… Continue

These things called themselves human?

These things are not humans but human eaters. I have not seen or heard such misterious action in my life before. There is no human in his right senses that can act like this?

The Nigeria government have to be blame for such act because Nigerians are not protected by the so call government. Police are not given the support needed to do their work. Every other country in the world, one or two firearm to a cop but Nigeria want the police to fight crime without arms, without good…

Between Ghadafi And America's positions On Nigeria

Last week saw a big progress made in global attempts to help Nigeria resolve her crises. From Africa came the seasoned voice of the founding Father of the African Union while America voiced its position on Nigeria

supporting efforts by the acting President Jonathan to reform electoral

processes for the coming elections in 2011.The progress is in the fact that we

now have models for consideration and for once Nigerian leaders will be called

upon to face…

Call Ogbulafor and PDP to order

It baffles me to read that Ogbulafor and PDP stalwarts are not happy with the turn of events as the Ag president is bent on bringing technocrats into his cabinet. Rather than help the acting president shop for those that can help turn events in the shortest possible time, they are clamouring for recycled PDP card carriers to still come and draw us back. Those this selfish intentions not show that these people don't have the good of this country at heart? They should be called to order and… Continue

Keep Your Home Clean For Your Children's Health

One of the most important ways to protect our children's health is to prevent their unnecessary exposure to toxins. Children are far more sensitive to low concentrations of toxic chemicals because of their developing organs and high metabolism. Here are some ways you can reduce exposure in your home:

Clean the Air. Avoid cigarette smoke. Don't smoke or allow others to smoke in your home. From ear infections to cancer, cigarette smoke can cause serious health… Continue

Gaddafi and Nigeria

I must say that I am quite surprised at the way in which Nigerians so virulently attacked the Libyan leader. Let it not be mistaken - I do not regard Gaddafi as someone whose comments have to be taken very seriously. He is the archetypal megalomaniac ruler who has outlived his usefulness to his people (the kind which by the way Africa never seems to fail to produce). What amazes me about our riposte is that my countrymen and women came out so forcefully in support of the unity of our country,… Continue
