Thank God, 2014 has started well but in order to make better progress it is very important for me to review the year 2013; not to live in the past, but to understand it and use it to create a better future. In the words of Soren Kierkgaard “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” 2013 was not a perfect year for me but it was still great and better than 2012. It started with so much optimism about lots of things I planned for myself but somehow t...

Should we accept it or refuse it? It was 8 am in the morning, as I woke up on the wrong side of my bed - hoping to get a clearer picture of my position at that particular time. I didn't realize what I was going to encounter until I stood up and walked outside my room. I noticed a man roughly 40 years old, holding hands with a 15 year old girl (for a long time I haven't seen this girl with her father, and I thought he was). A few hours later, my mum told me the young girl slept in this man's hous...

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...

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...

The issue of sexual health has been a heart-ache in the domain of growth and its fundamental right. In Nigeria, there’s a redundant development in both men’s and women's sexual health. We (men&women), in most cases experience the same circumstances. Some girls are raped, which results from the deformity in social and health status, lack of respect and rights. Boys experience some abnormal behaviors as a result of poor environmental factors, being in the wrong peer group, the lack of sex-...

They aren't too many people who identify as LGBT in Nigeria. But we have been able to parry the disparities we have. Life and the circumstances it dictates has curbed the desire of man to either appreciate or pulverize its contributions. Many a time, I have tried to understand why there's no equality between youths of different sexual orientation and society. Some say, these youths have violated the laws of nature and existence but from what I have figured out, it's bluntly a choice. With choice...

I cannot speak of the number of deaths or give an estimation of the total number of youths that have lost their lives due to certain issues linked to a rapid desire for change, wealth and fame. But, one thing remains clear: The majority of deaths have occurred due to an abrupt change in the ramifications of socioeconomic standards altered by political thugs. This unwanted adjustment has made the need for man in a do or die affair. From the unlawful demand for peace and harmony youths have lost t...

If the children of Nigeria are given the right education, they would become clear future leaders. When our girls are kidnapped, that shows the future is dented. We need to advocate for the rights and education of the Nigerian child, particularly the girl child. She has to be prepared and equipped while at school with better exposure so she would understand her issues. Then she ought to be guided to learn more, know more and do more about our world. Society needs to ensure that the...
