LETTER FROM THE SON OF MAN vol. 4 by ‘Lakunle Jaiyesimi

Dear Hannibal,

“Inspiring scenes of people taking the future of their countries into their own hands will ignite greater demands for good governance and political reform elsewhere in the world, including in Asia and in Africa.” – William Hague.

While the statement above is true, so much needs be done by the people of Nigeria, Continue reading

LETTER TO THE SON OF MAN Vol.4 by Adeojo Kolawole Adeyemi Hannibal

Dear, Son of Man.

I am excited as ever to get your timely correspondence. It was a timely balm that soothes the strained joints of our daily struggles. More so, it was an insight into a higher mind that proffers pragmatic panacea to our constant societal problems from a distant world, while opening a vista for dialectical discourse on our continued existence as humans and as citizens of a highly soldiered sovereign alliance.

#PAUSIBILITY: The Silhouette Of This Presidential Election.

Jonathan-x-Buhari-1The dark clouds that gathered on our nation has finally  cleared. The jubilation on the streets could be likened to the celebration we had when that killer wolf, Abacha was announced dead (no apology to the Abachas as I am not responsible for their father’s irrationality). The good Lord loves this nation. The doomsayers and those prophets that had in their own flesh believed the elections will not hold  and if at all it held, the incumbent will be returned, should be left alone in their pulpits as I would want to believe that people would stop Continue reading

#PAUSIBILITY: Is The ‘D’ In The D-Day For Doom? by Adebayo Coker

map-broken-nigeria-mKindly slam that song Natural Mystic by Bob Marley into your stereo and let it roll as you read this piece.

The Yorubas will say: ti a ba da ogun odun, ogun odun ape, ti a ba da ogbon osu, ogbon osu ako – the fraudulent twist of time cannot last eternal.

Tomorrow we will all go to the polls to assert our constitutional right and also perform our statutory duty as  Nigerians. Some of us would have loved to put this behind us long before now, especially on the 14th of February when this election was earlier slated for before #Pausibility: That Cretinous Shift.

PAUSIBILITY: A Cretinous Shift by Adebayo Coker

For the first time since the inception of our new democratic dispensation, a vast majority of Nigerians speak with one voice; old, young, professionals, artisans, educated and enlightened. People speak of their readiness to participate in this election but the maddening quest of a single man and his cretinous associates to hold on to power at all cost, pushed them to make a dive of a lifetime which I foresee will earn them broken skulls. In a high profile wrist-twisting show of power, the lazy service chiefs, acting under the directives of their Grand Commander, forced our democracy to come to a strategic halt by their singular act to stand against the wish of the people to go to the polls and effect the change they so yearn for and deserve; but just like I said last week, this is a change that will come to be, it is the Movement of The People (MOP).

#PAUSIBILITY: THE FRUIT. THE TREE. THE ORCHARD by Adebayo Coker

goodluck_buhari_1I must start by tendering my unreserved apology to my followers for not being able to deliver last week. I had a certain deadline that hung to my mind like a vagitus of my son, I had to attend to it.

Our political climate is becoming more and more interesting as our relative ‘peace’ is further threatened by so much perforation of the societal layers by the fetid release of political gases that will evaporate In no time. So I will implore you, not to be carried away.

The primaries are done with results of the clinging of party tickets by tyros and the re-emergence of the old order. Then we will be graduating to the ‘secondary’ come February 2015,  and eventually  matriculated into the ‘tertiary’ starting 29th May, 2015 all through till 2019 before we can reasonably convoke,  successfully or otherwise depends on the choice we make.

#PAUSIBILITY: OF NOMINAL, NORMAL AND THE EXTREME by Adebayo Coker

Adebayo Coker on Rubbin' Minds

Adebayo Coker on Rubbin’ Minds

Just as the common example, Ramadan has come to an end and a sharp upsurge in the patronage of brothels and beer parlors noticeable. Do not get me wrong, same could be said of quadragesimal period. A great number of us display piety louder than the Pope and the chiefest of Sheikhs just around those periods that we observe our religious abstinence, but other than those times, we are just as evil as the devil can be.

Yours truly was Ebuka’s guest at Channels TV last Sunday. It was a live cast of the famous programme for youths, Rubbin’Minds (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJmy8Q_xx2Q), Continue reading
