THE QUESTION TO ASK IS WHAT ARE WE DOING?

why Nigerians should seriously kick against the social media bill

Nigeria’s problems are beyond whatever happens on social media, so it makes no sense for the social media bill which is designed to stifle the voices of Nigerians – to be passed into law.

Is gagging what people have to say online really a priority right now for…

Perhaps, if the video wasn’t leaked, nobody would have known what transpired between two consenting adults. “Consenting adult” are the key words here, since everyone on twitter was quick to highlight the fact that both agreed to have sex and perhaps both agreed to tape it as well, but the issue is beyond all the points mentioned on twitter i.e. “she didn’t do…

#Nigeria At 59: Beasts of No Nation by Solomon Ibekwe “HIGH CHIEF”

Like Jesus Christ said on the cross, it is finished. Nigeria is done for.And like he resurrected on the third day, we hope for a renaissance – a desperate rebirth. Just like Noah and his people waited hopefully upon the dove they dispatched from the ark to scout for drylands, we are optimistic that soon, the tides will swing in our favour and our dove will fly gleefully to us, lush green leaves held firmly in it’s beak.

It’s funny how we all believe Monday starts a new week, but it’s…
