#Repost @zaynabtyty ・・・ What better time to read this book by @ayosogunro than when #election is just hours away? This book was very fantastic, i enjoyed every article on it. After my dad read this book, he said "Nigeria is a Nation where the worst scenario never materialises and the best possibil
The only fences you see are of your own making. You can vote for your candidate without being partisan, fundamentalist or violent. The big picture is our common good, not the enthronement of any political party or politician. Time heals all electoral losses, but time cannot heal the wounds of electo

Selfie with my "baby" sister. Who had to cut her hair and wear a shapeless shirt. Because she now studies in a boarding school. Then, later, she will be informed that, as a citizen of Nigeria, she is guaranteed a fundamental right of expression. And like lots of democratically self-aware Nigerians

This is our Nigeria today. Most Nigerians don't care about the events in the North East of the country. Of course, we sympathize with the victims. But, frankly, we have bigger things to worry about--like promotions, paying the bills, and the 2015 elections. This apathy is why we have not downed to
I hardly publicise praise of my work (except, of course, the twitter retweets), but these compliments from fellow--and more established--writers really gave me a warm glow. It's one thing for family and friends to tell me I write well, but it's a different level when strangers, who are also writers
