‘Comrade’ Aisha Buhari: Beyond the Other Room

🕔19:53, 31.May 2019

Sometime in 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari sparked a controversy when his comment downplayed the potentials of women and gave the impression that the seclusion of a man’s house is the place most suitable place for them. The president had shocked his audience, including his host, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany when he said “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen, the living room and the other room.”

Give The Children FORM And Watch Them Grow

Give The Children FORM And Watch Them Grow

🕔15:04, 30.May 2019

Tell the children they are the leaders of tomorrow and you make a mark in their vocabulary. It seems easy to say to anyone; you can do this and they are injected into a state of possibilities. This is the least action you should take when it comes to giving the children and adolescents an opportunity to become more than they can presently see.

May 30 Falls on Thursday this year (2019) and I am one of those who have elected to stay at home to remember. To remember my family members, my classmates, the friends of my youth, and all who perished in Nigerian/Biafran war. Many countries have Memorial Day, Remembrance Day, or May Day. It does not matter what the name is but it is usually the day dedicated to remember all those who died in the wars of the country.

Between Igbo Presidency And Amaechi’s Usurpation Of God’s Powers

Between Igbo Presidency And Amaechi’s Usurpation Of God’s Powers

🕔06:21, 27.May 2019

Rotimi Amaechi’s recent declaration that the Igbo should forget about the presidency in 2023 “For refusing to support the APC…” is both self-adulating and hypocritical, and must be treated as the rant of a drowning and diminished political gladiator. Such asinine statement can only come from a man who has been dealt a political sledgehammer blow beyond ‘below the belt’ straight to his fragile scrotum by his own people in Rivers State at the last general elections.

May the lessons of Ramadan — especially the aspects of sacrifice and service to God and humankind — guide your next steps as the leader of this potentially great country called Nigeria. I have many complaints about your first four years in office, some of which I have written about in this space, but I would rather let the past be gone and hope for a new chapter as you renew your mandate on May 29. But I also have many things to say ahead of the next four years, some of which I will be writing about in the coming weeks.
