I Am Original: Reminisces of the travails and the triumphs of Junior WAEC examination (I) At morning assembly, the school proprietress addresses her students.

Plea for national emergency on welfare of the Nigerian child

Plea for national emergency on welfare of the Nigerian child On instinct or by impulse, the heading of this write-up suggests that due to terrorism, high crime rate, mass killings and unprecedented rate of poverty, the well-being of babies is not guaranteed in Nigeria. If you agree with the above, you may not be too far from the truth. But there...... more

Injustice: Confronting with silence or action

Injustice: Confronting with silence or action Recognising an injustice is the first step. Seeking help or doing something about it depends on some parameters, including the magnitude of the injustice, the likelihood of the continuation of that injustice if nothing is done to curb it, and the identity of the perpetrator(s).

Injustice: The menace of educated hoodlums

Injustice: The menace of educated hoodlums Street thugs and their operations – extortions, harassment, victimisation, threats, excessive use of power, gang-running – are easily identifiable.

As NYSC fishes out fake certificates

As NYSC fishes out fake certificates Socrates is a fascinating thinker and one of the original fathers of philosophy – a course which implicitly is defined as the love of wisdom.
