On The Matter Of The Dog Named ‘Buhari’ By Abimbola Adelakun






When the Ogun State Police arrested Joe Chinakwe after his neighbour reported him for naming his dog “Alhaji Buhari”, and for walking the same dog in their “Hausa dominated neighbourhood,” they did not try to mask why they took that line of action. According to media reports, they charged him to court because his “provocative” act could cause a breach of peace, and that was because “an average Northerner would feel bad over such a thing.” Underlining their motive is the reality of our socio-political environment. When law enforcement admits to arresting a man to preserve the feelings of his accusers who can launch gratuitous violence, they mean the evil we are dealing with surpasses their level of efficiency.

History has taught us that whenever the “average northerner” says he “feels bad over a thing”, the rest of us are supposed to hurriedly rearrange our manners. We are told to take heed of invisible limits that “infidels” are not permitted to cross. Alarmingly, a number of us have restricted ourselves to this emasculating avoidance of wrath. We have mapped out “no-go areas” of public discussion that we trespass at grievous risks to ourselves. We have seen the repercussions of trespassing these bounds and they are not pleasant. From Gideon Akaluka’s killings to the Reinhard Bonnke crusade violence, the Miss World riots, the Danish cartoons saga, and many other instances of unwarranted violence that have occurred, we have long realised we are dealing with a short-tempered evil spirit who demands a sacrifice of our collective dignity so he can let us live.

The Receptionist – Episode 4






‘Ok, we are leaving’ Michael said
‘Alright’ Mr Ifeanyi responded, without giving me a second glance as he walked away.
My heart beat was on a marathon race as different thoughts flew in my head. I was silent as I wondered if I had lost the job I just resumed. How do I start all over again, I can never go back to Mrs Vera. How do I tell my mum? My ex-colleagues who were thrilled with my new job, how do I explain I didn’t last 24 hours in the building.
‘Why are you so quiet?, what have I done this time?’ Michael asked
‘That man is my boss’
‘Mr John?’ Michael asked surprised
“Mr Ifeanyi, the owner of the company’
‘Fuck!’ Michael exclaimed and went mute.
We drove in silence, as I knew he was giving me time to think and get over the shock.
7:45PM
‘Yvette, stop scolding yourself. Put the blame on me if that will make you feel better’
‘No, it doesn’t’ I replied, I had lost appetite to eat, as I forced another spoonful of rice down my throat
‘You are not a baby, you were not kissing me inside the office, that’s a car park.’
‘Yes, but considering how I got the job I am at the mercy of Mr ifeanyi’
‘You said he is a nice man, he didn’t look bothered, he was more in a hurry to go out’ Michael argued

For years, Wanda Witter has lived on the streets in Washington, DC, trying to persuade officials that Social Security owes her more than $100,000. For years, the 80-year-old woman says people dismissed her as crazy.

But even though Witter had earned a paralegal certificate to prepare for a new career, she remained jobless - and ended up sleeping in shelters or on the streets of DC.

You have been a military officer and a Head of State, which one was more challenging?

Being a military officer was more challenging than being a military President. As a military officer, you are leading men into danger, your life and their lives very much depend on you as the Commander. I see it as more challenging than being the President.

Yes, Ndi Igbo, ‘Go Home’








I READ an interesting Facebook broadcast by a friend of mine, Ray Morphy Ugba, the morning just before coming to the office to write this article. Ray is a journalist, politician, blogger and (from what I saw after the broadcast) also a musician.

He hails from Cross River State, though he seems quite proud of the fact that his mother is an Igbo woman, which is why he calls Igbos “my mother’s people”. Ray referred to a recent controversial statement credited to the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on a visit to Badagry, where he said Lagos was not a “colony” but part of the Yoruba homeland (which is true).

He reportedly announced that there was “nothing like Eze Ndi Igbo again” in the state, stressing his determination to move several markets (like Mile 12, Ladipo and others) to outskirts of the metropolics. This outing has been trending in the social media, and some Igbo people believe it is yet another pointer to the fact that Ambode is an “enemy” of their people.

Parental Influences On Kids & The Generation







💡A father’s influence goes to the fourth generation after him. Whitney Houston’s parents Emily (Cissy) and John Houston divorced when she was at kindergarten. Together with lover, Bobby Brown, Whitney smoked crack in the presence of their 5 year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina. At 22, Bobbi died of drug abuse…her mother Whitney died at 48 on similar grounds. Great careers and more importantly, great lives lost due to weak fatherhood.

💡While there is little you can do about your ancestors, there is something that you can do about your descendants.One thing that prevents a man from being a good father is that he hasn’t completed being a boy. To be in your children’s’ memory tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.  Having kids doesn’t make you a father. Raising them does.

💡There are many of us who were raised up in unstable families but we don’t have to pass it on to our children. We don’t have to fight in the presence of our children. We can choose to shield their emotions from our disputes as adults. To a large extent, you are a product of your early relationships

Polygamy is a practice that is banned in most countries across the world and one clearly seen as threat to women’s rights.

Winston Blackmore, a 59-year-old Canadian with 27 wives and 145 children whom people would think should be the poster-boy for polygamy, surprisingly says that he won’t support legalization of the practice since he fears that ‘women could be exploited’.
Blackmore who is the leader of a polygamist Mormon fundamentalist group in Canada said this while addressing an audience in Utah.

He has also been arrested for polygamy in 2007 and has been tried twice for practicing polygamy.
