Abuja is the city where children beg at night

For Mohammed Mohammadu who wants to be a Custom officer, his parents do not know whether he is alive or dead. And he seems not understand what that means. Mohammed is a nine-year-old who makes his daily living by standing around the corner shops of around Wuse 2, one of Abuja’s busiest streets, every night, to beg Abuja urban middle [...]

Connected Development is changing how people live in African rural communities

To be specific, I only got to know about Connected Development, also known as CODE last quarter of 2017. And it was on Facebook I came across them – and the kind of work they do – and have been doing since 2012.

Our unity is negotiable but one Nigeria is workable

I love teamwork. Great successes are achieved with teamwork. And here is why. Individuals in a team bring a combination of strengths that are pulled together to achieve significant set goals.

    The Nigeria kind of poverty

The Nigeria kind of poverty

I saw the official twitter handle of Nigeria that seeks to give information on us say “Discover Africa’s most populous country and largest economy.” This is good public relations and branding through Social Media Marketing. No country’s public relations manager puts out bad information about them on social media especially that it is the window through which the world is [...]

    When the old and new are the same

When the old and new are the same

It is human nature to desire and try out new things. It is not unusual for people to become dissatisfied with a system, a person, a government or even a spouse especially when expectations are no longer met. The reason why we have new inventions and innovations springing up every minute is because humans become easily tired with old things. [...]

    Children are dying

Children are dying

When I read an article by US based online media Huffington Post on Nigeria being among other four countries as South Sudan, Yemen and Somalia where children die on a daily basis due to famine in the Northeast region, I felt mixed emotions of sadness and compassion.
