Essentially, this bill opens the way for young Nigerians to contest for elective offices. Ordinarily , I should have been elated with this news. But, I am here wondering if Nigerian youths are ready and untainted enough…

Lamee Tomtsu … Remembering another like Dora Akunyili…

Today I sit down and remember a fearless and brave woman. The late Prof. Dora Akunyili who cleaned the Augean stables of NAFDAC.

On gender and career possibilities…

In Nigeria, when a woman works in the hospital, then she is automatically a nurse… Never mind if she spent 8 years getting her degree (plenty thanks to NUC and ASUU). No, she must be a nurse! A man in brown scrubs is automatically a doctor… never mind if he is a health assistant and…

On Politics… and Propaganda.
