HUman Rights? OP-ED Opinions 

Can our Human Rights come in handy this year?

If you know your Rights, you’re to blame for every Human Rights violation which you let slide right under your nose. If you aren’t aware of your Rights, you’re slightly worse.

President Zuma has a crush in Nigeria, and it isn’t female!

Somewhere in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, a fancy statue of President Jacob Zuma poses in elegance, despite widespread condemnation of the romantic gesture by the Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, who appears to be quite star-struck by the South African President.   Aside from the rumored extravagant cost of erecting the monument—which comes at a time of extreme economic hardship, and likewise, the reported unpaid salaries of Imo State workers, the logic behind Governor Rochas’ immortalization of the embattled South African leader, eludes the bulk of Nigerians.

What’s The Military Doing To Our Loved Ones?

A while back, a close friend of mine and neighbor, decided to pursue his dream of joining the Nigerian Army. Was it a cool decision for his friends and family? Yes. Were we expecting him to preserve a chunk of his admirable gentle nature—which we all loved him for, despite the rigors of military training? I didn’t see why not! Anyway, he successfully scaled through selection and began active service. He visited home whenever he could, but everyone could tell he obviously wasn’t the same person. His first strange behavior…

Superstition: Africa’s worst nightmare after poverty

Every part of the world has had their fair share of ignorance; especially, the naivety that accompanies the weird beliefs people grow into believing. But while other continents seem to be gradually moving away from superstition, Africa strives really hard on a daily basis to retain exclusive rights. So much for her ego as the ‘Dark Continent’ I suppose.   African culture is deeply rooted in different kinds of superstitious beliefs. But the great fear of wizardry, is a particularly disturbing one. Nothing terrifies the mind of the average home-bred…

Rid Yourself of The ‘Bandwagon Effect’ And Take Full Control of Your Life

The more people believe in a thing, the easier it becomes to gradually lure other people into jumping on the bandwagon in agreement. The bandwagon effect, has proven to be a strong mind-controlling force which drags people into abandoning their own opinion in acceptance of a more popular one. One can’t tell for sure if doing something a certain way is right or wrong, as long as other people are doing it, it sure feels right! Ironically, a huge number of the Twenty-First Century population, would rather be informed by…

Well, of course, except the Astronauts. Nevertheless, you get to live for as long as your cause of death is yet to catch up with you.
