The Memoirs of Yomi “d drunk” Very Short Story by Chibundo Ubachukwu

(As published on meronymofmeroe on the 21st of November, 2011)

Dear President Goodluck Jonathan,

My name is Yomi Smart. Bimpe (my wife) says I’m incapable of rational thought because I’m a drunk. Silly rabbit, what does she know? Sadly, a prophet has no honour in his own house. But all my friends can confirm that I give the best of advice when under the influence. Also, my wife thinks you are a hypocritical politician – you have my permission to arrest her. On the other hand, I still see you as a leader who can jump start some necessary change in Nigeria. I hope you do!

Four years ago, I called my wife and her kids for a family meeting. I say “her kids” Continue reading The Memoirs of Yomi “d drunk” Very Short Story by Chibundo Ubachukwu

#PAUSIBILITY: Change Is The Only Constant Thing by Adebayo Coker

GEJGMBThese past few weeks have seen me skim the local television stations looking for one political campaign or the other, and I must confess it has been an interesting venture for me; I hope am speaking for a greater number of you too. But in all, I want us to hold on to one of the concepts of realism which is “ the determination to face facts and deal with issues practically without being influenced by any sentiments or false ideas; it is the showing of things as they are”.

BTW: I couldn’t submit anything last week as all that came to mind was about that Hotter Big Shop (I hope you can decode), but my preference to yield to the admonition to do no harm to men in cassock made me keep myself away from writing this column altogether.

#PAUSIBILITY: RECLAIMING CHIBOK by Adebayo Coker

By principle, a man that cannot protect his neighbor is himself in a big security mess.

When GEJ ordered Eagle One to Paris rather than Chibok, he was not doing the unstated; he already hinted during his last media chat that Shekau and his boys will kill anyone that ventures Sambisa. I must doff my hat for the men and women that are still living in that village of terror, Chibok; they are stronger than this CinC with all of his appurtenances of military might combined with the strength of the international allies. Even when GEJ had the opportunity to get grasp of the situation by granting just few minutes’ audience to the protesters of #BringBackOurGirls in Abuja yesterday which could have placed him on a better pedestal with the people, he blew it. Those of you that think you are helping this guy, there is God o! Continue reading #PAUSIBILITY: RECLAIMING CHIBOK by Adebayo Coker

The Memoirs of Yomi “d drunk”, Very Short Story by Chibundo Ubachukwu

This piece was written by Chibundo Ubachukwu and published on a sister site on the 21st of November, 2011. Then, it probably meant just a piece. Today, in retrospect, when next I encounter Chibundo, who incidentally is a Pharmacist, I’ll salute him like he was a Prophet.

Today’s Issue:    “Nigerian Youths, Wake Up” – BB broadcast msg 

 

lAkUnLeScReWs welcome every lovely reader to another edition of the show, good morning, Naija on MeroëRadio.. E don tey wey we bring the show and na because of the kind rigour wey academic researches dey cause na em make us no show for this radio background since. Abeg, no vex.

 

The matter wey attract lAkUnLeScReWs this time start with one blackberry (nay whatsapp) broadcast message wey enter my phone a few days back. Make you read the message below:

“Niger Delta Militant – N75,000 per month.

Boko Haram – N100,000 per month.

NYSC – N19,800 per month.

Minimum wage for Civil Service – N18,900 per month.

Choose your career wisely:D”

Wetin that one come mean? I doubt if em require any insight before we begin understand the implication of the varied payment. The varied payment obviously no dey intentional but as the affected lot (almost ‘neglectedly’ so), e dey easy for us to see the obvious connection of disparity.
