Reported by Cadmus Atake, Zaid Shopeju and Oluwafunmilayo Oyatogun It is commonly said that what a man can do, a woman can do better, but in the case of Ogoni the women seem to have been relegated to the back burner for too long. Ogoniland has become the poster child for environmental problems in Nigeria, especially as a result of unscrupulous extraction activities of multinational corporations. So, even though the women of Ogoni were well aware of the problems surrounding...

Over the past decades human activities and experimentation with nature has been responsible for rapidly diminishing the diversity of life forms on this planet. Each species lost is a storehouse of environmental knowledge selected for over millions of years. The exploding sciences of biomimicry, bioengineering, and genetic manipulation highlight the enormous potential a single species may have in helping humanity create a healthier, more sustainable interaction with our environmen...

On a transit from one part of Nigeria to the other I noticed the highway has really become scanty with bushmeat traders trying to make a living from their game, and my thoughts ran wild. It dawned on me that the Ebola virus has taken a turn on the lives of the local people hunting in the wild to make a living for themselves and families. The fact became clear, that indeed the western world has gradually taken over our culture in full with fearful stories that our wildlife and d...

If there is a future there is time for mending Time to see your troubles coming to an end Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow- If you‘re looking forward to a new tomorrow If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping- When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping. Though the heart is heavy and hurt you may be feeling- If there is time for praying there is time for healing. So if through your window there is a new day breaking-...

Home sweet home says the lost child, Who will take me in, he wonders lost in thoughts, Seeing comfort all around him, but has none Seeing men waste there lots But none to his side, Tears rolls down from his cheeks for pain of hunger O lord he cries just take me home, But he gives life a second thought If he can take care of the sparrow he can take of me, Oh lost child don’t give up yet, The lord has heard your Cries and He is at the door of your rest...

Yet with all of these campaigns and preparations we still have degradation, high levels of pollution, oil spills, land grabbing, and GMOs. Other environmental destruct...

Pondering about life and our actions, I discovered that the responsibility to make a sincere change in our generation lies deep within each of us. We make our own path in life, we decide our own fates, we decide what we want out of life simply because we are all free willed beings, but ponder on this. Great powers comes with great responsibilities and that's why we all need to take full responsibilities of what we do with what God has given to us (our giftings / talents). Just as we have the...
