Legacy as the word sounds and implies, takes its meaning synonymous to ethics and values passed down to generations. Though, Nigeria as my domain and lineage, I hate to say, I grieve in bewilderment of unremorseful deterrence within my subconscious. Its state I longed to see way pass when it deserved. Self-preservation and fulfillment is a resolute nature that scores if not devours, thawing enough the heart of its gearing non unanimous thought. I would hopefully like to take a...

In mid-April this year, we woke up to the heart-breaking news that over 200 girls were taken hostage from a secondary school at Chibok, Borno state, North-Eastern Nigeria. Although, this was one in the series of the stories of insurgency in Nigeria, things took a new turn. A month after the awful event, it became global news after much protesting and campaigning-including the popular #BringBackOurGirls on Twitter. Every news media ran a story or more on the unfortunate happening, c...

“One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity,” the words of the last line of the first stanza of our national anthem. Sadly, I do no think ours is a nation where freedom abounds, and neither are we living (or have we ever lived) in peace and unity. At best we have only tolerated one another, each group of persons waiting for the perfect time to attack the other group, most times over issues that are both myopic and unreasonable. Over the years we keep chasing shadows, changing slogans (as...

Once again our collective opinion on voice as a strong vehement Nigerian youth for a revolutionized nation cannot and will never be hidden nor intimidated to extinction. While the insurgents are maiming, killing, and kidnapping innocent Nigerians, the military that was supposed to be our strength as a nation has been compromised leading to the death of more officers than the Islamist groups themselves. The lives of Nigerians far north means nothing to political cabals but an instru...

They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path. They shot them and left their bodies lying in the dark to be collected and disposed. They didn't care; shot at close range and left them for dead. They killed forty eight people in less than four hours. Sadly this is not a one time only incident, there is more... A well executed shoot to kill attack in a h...

In our society today, especially in urban and suburban cities and towns, there...

Man don't kill man, guns kill man! Its not a new thing in Nigeria to hear the sound of guns. People die by the hundreds daily and the world is looking. I am sure the world knows. The killing of some sects who want to take over the government of the people is also genocide. People are being killed daily and the world is watching, the world is watching us. Will the world leave us to die?
