Nigeria’s Lost Gold

Nigerian government dance with Western Government and Oil Multinationals and each one of them taking a slice of our National cake, But change has always come from individuals and we first need to fix our problem at home before thinking of changing the World bank and all those people remember Nehru and Grandhi, Martin Luther King. How crazy it is that a country exporting millions of gallons of Oil each day had none for its own people. What is the role of the Mavericks or dissenter, a question I asked…

Youth In Governace – The Reflection Of Nigerian Democratic Phase

Nigeria is now more than 20 years into its fourth effort at democracy – its longest single stretch of hard-won civilian rule since it gained independence in 1960. This laudable achievement has however been undercut by the still lacking social contract between state and society and a stark accountability gap that is yet to be addressed. Governing in such a complex and diverse context, while concurrently building democratic institutions and diversifying an economy is a significant challenge. But the failures of successive civilian governments to deliver on promises, improve livelihoods…

The Gazelle And The Lion

By; Praise Kalu One distinctive feature between the gazelle and the lion is that the gazelle always runs from something whereas the lion always runs after something. The Gazelle gives up at some point when it is not being pushed by an external source. On the other hand, the lion runs till it achieves it. Now, which of them are you? Which of them do you intend to be? Are you the kind of person that waits to be pushed and motivated before you continue your work? Do you wait…

CBN Forex Policy Is a Great Move

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has updated its policy and we need to commend the apex bank. In a memo dated Nov 30, 2020 (see below), the bank reversed its policy, making it possible that remittance can be wired into a domiciliary account in Nigeria, with the recipient having access to the money in the foreign currency (say US dollars). In an earlier directive, the bank had removed that flexibility, pegging it around N388 per US$1, and that necessitated an uncommon rally against the Naira in the global currency…

Tips: How To Survive This Recession

Here are some tip to survive this time: Assess your skill stacks: in one of my past posts, I’ve talked about skill stacks and the argument in support of having multiple skill sets.

For example, as a writer, programmer, or creative, you can create for an audience worldwide. Deepen your expertise: This is critical as you try to target beyond your geographical location and…

No Pressure

By; Terdoo Akase “when will you graduate?” That question gleefully tormented my course mates and I. They taunted us with it like an abominable plague. Broken, tired and helpless, our mouths stood ajar with salty tears under our breath. We eventually spent almost 10 labourous years studying a 6yr course. However, less than a year after graduation, the progress has been exponential. We dial the sad memory but it is always unreachable. Gen 1:3-5 God made light on the first day and then took a break. There was so much…

Opinion: Isn’t Winning So Overrated

By Praise Kalu For me, winning equals action. To be a winner, you have to pay the price. Winning comes by relentless pursuit towards the mark. An athlete on the field is not said to have won until he gets to the finish line. He gets to the finish line by being the first to get there, facing all his competitors (including those who started before him and those who came after him). He could never have been the winner if he had just stopped in the middle to rest…

Insight: It Is A Challenge To Provide Disability-Inclusive Education, But It’s Worth It

By Dr, Manos Antoninis Many countries in sub-Saharan Africa get bad press for their progress in providing inclusive education. Just two in three children complete primary school on time, while the number of out-of-school children and youth is 97 million and growing. Less is said, however, about the range of tools many countries in the region are deploying to include some of those furthest behind in mainstream schools: students with disabilities. These efforts should be celebrated and there seems no better time to think about inclusion than now. Inequalities in…

Opinion: What Happens When Girls Say “No”?

By Lolo Cynthia Ihesie A recent United Nations report finds that one-in-four women globally feel powerless to refuse sex with a husband or partner. Yet, the problem could be even worse, as the report does not consider girls under 17. In Nigeria, where masculinity is too often weaponized, girls may be even more vulnerable. Especially now, during the stress of a pandemic and intermittent lockdowns, girls and women need the power to say no. I was once among those girls who could never say no. When my high school boyfriend…
