Imagine a world without girls. A world occupied by arrogant and naïve men. Imagine you have no mother to talk to when you are hurt or a girl to call a sister. Imagine a world where men give birth to boys and imagine a world where girls are extinct. Now, picture yourself close to the only girl in the world - What do you think she deserves? If your thoughts are positive towards life, then that's how every girl child should be treated, catered for and nurtured. Girls have come to stay, and women a...

The first time I heard and read about John F. Kennedy, I almost thought he was a god! I thought he was a phenomenon, a being supreme and very determined. I saw one great trait in him that made my heart tremble - his voice. He never kept QUIET. His ability to relate to the poor and rich, making them understand the purpose and rhythm of how good living should be was overwhelming. Indeed, his voice was more great and touching. I feel the same about Martin Luther King Jr. - a man who spoke out with...

I don't know how to start this note or make the words suitable for everyone to understand. Well the affair and situation at hand makes it porous to understand. Sometimes I ask myself: *why must a man go through labor to eat? * why are young girls raped? * why are there hoodlums in our street? * why is the government not working towards advancement? * why is education porous and ill? * why is there a massive increase in unemployment? * why is Nigeria, listed as one of the most corrupt countries...

I am African. Black I am, coined and carved out of Black Nature. Groomed from the bowel of: heat, poverty and dark water. I am Black. Not Brackish, Not vain! But eager to do more, eager to raise my Shoulder - to commune, argue and resolve the vague. As little as it may, I can't belittle my stance or set my thoughts in disarray. For I am connected to Africa and Africans - joined with the coastal of my forefathers. I am Proudly African, dark and woolly. Although, I may be prone to sickness, I neve...

We go to school to learn, to be acquainted with a literal KIND of knowledge which gives us the ability to comment or comprehend on a subject wisely. Education brought a light to the world and shaped the way we see things. But one problem we still have is whether to dwell on its "Theoretical aspect" or "Practical part". In Nigeria, 80% of what we do in government owned schools and private work-grounds are 'theoretical' - there are no practical equipment and the areas for the conduction of these p...

1) NOTE that body language is extremely. important. -Do not look at your feet when you walk. - Do not bite your nails (it is an animal instinct of nervousness). -DO NOT Walk with your hands in your pockets. Examine your current habits: do any of them make you seem smaller, weaker or less physically capable? If so, change them to something that will make you appear larger and more confident. 2) Keep in mind that self esteem is even more important but harder to attain. -You are a very important pe...

Recently a friend of mine told me how a girl he met on a social network sent him nude pictures of herself for money - which he later sent to his other friends at a hostel. This and many more are yet untold of how teenagers send sexually explicit messages to flirt with someone and how some girls send nude photos of themselves because they were pressured by boys. "Technology, shaped our way of life positively but due to the misinterpretation of its usage, we flirt with its power and a great damage...

At the expense of global warming, disruption in the earth's crust, conflict and reduction in the earth's value coupled with the increase in population- the affairs of the world when weighed varies with the value of being perfect. Today, the world is in crumbles - thronged with unprofitable visions. We have the West Africans causing havoc - with a massive increase in corruption and killing. Others are organising drugs and doing other malicious traits. Young girls and boys are being used to transf...

You don't need to raise your shoulders or seek what it is you are not close to. All you need do is to be calm and steady, seeking only the traits that will promote your life. We all want to be praised and be seen as great men and women -" the craving of a man is to be appreciated." Time is the most influential property here, which is fuelled by patience. Before you make any mistakes trying to fit in due to certain obligations, ask yourself why you need to. This question brings out the ugly and b...
