In Nigeria, It’s NOT a Happy Children’s Day.

First of all, I’ll like to wish every children on planet earth a Happy Children’s day. Regardless of my post title, we can’t deny that May 27 has been set aside to celebrate children worldwide. So, If you’re a mother, sister, Father, brother reading this. My heartfelt prayer is for God to continue to keep our children, give wings to their dreams. May they grow in stature and wisdom and may they continue to lighten out faces with happiness. Today makes it 43 days that over 200 Nigerian children were abducted in their school by members of terrorist sect, Boko Haram. Over 200 children whose only crime was to concede to the idea of education. Today, over 200 girls are in danger, over 100 parents and families are in anguish and pain. Every child has a right to education. Why should their cases be different? In Nigeria, it’s NOT a happy Children’s Day. Where are these effervescent children we see, who should be home, running errands, taken to amusement places, visiting friends trying out new clothes, taking photographs or just being showered with love? We can’t talk to the terrorists, but we shouldn’t lose our voices to the government because it is its responsibility. Today, I join my heart with parents whose faces have not known sleep since this sad news was broken to them. Parents whose attention are...

Mr President, Give a damn | By: Yemi Ajala

“As President of our country and Commander in Chief of our military, I accept that people are gonna call me awful things every day and I defend their right to do so” – Barack Obama. “With great power come great responsibilities” – Peter Parker Zoology 101 teaches us that the most important trait for the survival of an animal is adaptability. Nature does not care if you are the strongest, fastest or smartest: if you are not adaptable, you will go extinct. It is a fact that you are the first president to bear the brunt of social media in this country. Unfortunately, you have handled it despicably at best. You have lost the information war: both online and to Boko Haram on the ground. Time and again, you have been at the brunt of internet uproar, anger and worldwide outrage based on information asymmetry. Boko Haram is running amok in the North East and you admitted that journalists know more than you about the situation down there. You’ve lost the confidence of your people. Your media aides have denied the kidnap, cursed and harassed people over the Chibok girls online until international pressures forced you to admit that the girls are indeed missing and you know nothing about what is being done, why? The answer, I think, is the Cersei Lannister complex. Cersei, a character in the popular...
