Why I Write

When I read George Orwell’s piece of 1946 captioned ‘Why I Write’, I asked myself “why do I write really”. I discovered most of us may not be able to deeply express our innermost thoughts if we do not put pen to paper. I for one am more comfortable with writing out thoughts which is much better than speaking. Even those who speak thoughts have to write out first or else they make a messy speech. (more…)

2014: Any Hope for the Unemployed?

By Eustace Dunn

Unemployed Nigerians

Unemployed Nigerians

A younger university colleague once called to break his graduation news to me and that he was now like me. I chuckled, hoping he had known where he had graduated into and where he was heading. Call it the spider’s web if you like.I was sure he did not do his homework well about the unemployment situation in Nigeria for if he had, he would have had a deep thought about his next port of call after graduation – the burgeoning labour market where his suffering continues!

We Had No Name

amalgamation-day-1914Nineteen fourteen,

Shaw started one great thing.

Yes! It was Flora Shaw,

Even when we were not sure,

Whether it was to make a difference,

All kindred dreaded their presence.

Yet we have made a hundred

We are told we had no name

All the names became the same

We were found restless in the Niger area

We were christened Nigeria

With a galleria of hysteria. (more…)

Some time ago, I used to slug it out with friends who happened to have been using blackberry (BB) since its debut. Little did I know that someday, BB would end up introducing its messenger to other Smartphones. I once spoke against BlackBerry phones perhaps because of the rush for it especially in Nigeria. Most people will categorically tell you that they detest it with passion. (more…)

Provided it passes on the messages they intend, not minding whether the recipient understands these abbreviations. Even if it’s not understood, they are ready to explain what it means and then one may not be able to resist following the band wagon. These are high profiled semantics. (more…)

This piece is not really based on who has what fortune before marriage, it is out to state that if one bases one’s reason for marrying someone on love, one could be doomed. (more…)
