A WORD ON TECHNO-COMMUNICATION ETHICS TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION

I have observed with great concern the impropriety attending several techno-communications amongst young people in my part of the world.  And when I say ‘techno-communication’, I mean the internet and mobile telephony.

The communication and technology enthusiast I am brings me to a number of social networking platforms.  On Facebook, WhatsApp and Mobile Communication platforms such as texting and voice messaging, I see and hear so much that bothers me.  I see adults do a lot that isn’t right.  That worries me, but Continue reading

OF THIS SORT, BLESS US LORD!

“…Give up requesting me to go away from you…for where you go I will go…your people will be my people, and your God my God…

And when she [Naomi] saw that Ruth was strong in her purpose to go with her she said no more”.

IT’S NOT A COKE! (PT.2) – MY LESSONS

In the last presentation, I promised to let out the discovery that made me both laugh and think. I shall do just that. But before then, let me situate that bit of the story for proper perspective.

You see, just last week, exactly this time last week at about 3 p.m, I was at a wedding where in a quite unusual way, a local drink Mum has a mastery of was served. It isn’t the norm around here. It is often bottled soft drinks and some harder liquor on the table. In this event, it was bottled pineapple juice.

ARISE O COMPATRIOTS!

‘Giant of Africa’; I do not know where that came from. I surmise however that the population of that West African nation so named Nigeria by Mrs. Luggard (wife of last colonial Governor-General of the amalgamated protectorates) is basic reason for the accolade. To reduce it to that alone however, would also be an unfair conclusion.

From Sokoto to Yenagoa, from Maiduguri to Lekki and everywhere in-between Continue reading

EXCUSE ME MY LORDS, I HAVE A QUESTION!

em...excuse me please...Following the pronouncements of the Supreme Court on a matter bothering on contempt of the court, I wrote a piece in total praise and admiration of the apex court of the Republic of Ghana.  It wasn’t adulation; I still hold that view until something else changes the face and character of that extolled body.  But this morning, Continue reading
