On These Lazy Nigerian Youths.

Let’s not jump on the bandwagon and do something we ordinarily wouldn’t because, I think I like the trajectory that this is currently taking vis a vis Farosident M. Bubu, his administration, his presidential team and his eventual chances for the coming 2019 ordeal. The ordinary Nigerian may have known or suspected at least, for … Continue reading On These Lazy Nigerian Youths.

Global Warming and Its Unlikely Problematic Relationship with the Rampaging Fulani Herdsmen

Selecting a single word that reduces the three factors that make up the topic to a single expression, that word would be “surreptitious”. Slowly, stealthily and showing all but a lack of resolution in these series of unfortunate events that have been so intricately concealed under the veil of everyday living, edged on by both … Continue reading Global Warming and Its Unlikely Problematic Relationship with the Rampaging Fulani Herdsmen
