There had been another accident, this time even more fearful; and the details of which Femi had no complete recollection. That had been way back in 1978 during the students’ protest.
It had seemed like a quite necessary protest. One of the premises was that the government had increased fees in universities, which was unfair because students had not been given a fair choice. Another had been that there were too few universities in the country. The situation at that time was that the entire country of around a hundred million had only thirteen conventional universities into which a...

Dis one na gobe

See what I found on the internet. Dis one na gobe (ooops !)

Soul sacrifice

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all...

Denge first lap completed

Two sittings of approximately three hours each estimated to completion of the first draft of my farcical short novel DENGE. I had previously reckoned a September completion but alas Money sent me on a more urgent errand.

Denge - the man who prayed to God, come take me home ; and God...

Revisited : Race against Superflu

A couple of months ago after Ebola had landed in Nigeria, I warned here on Facebook that this is a global problem which the entire world ought to urgently engage with . Our brothers and sisters abroad (and even many at home) shouted me down and chose to focus instead on corruption in Africa...

Ebola tourist destination

Wow! Nigeria may now become the preferred port of call for Ebola carriers - with our demonstrated success record. :(

The accusing fish head

Why do some of these restaurant people neglect to remove the eye from the fish head before cooking it ? I really do feel guilty eating this guy; I mean while it is sort of staring at me.

Remembering henry Miller - Tropic of Cancer

" I am living at the Villa Borghese. There is not a crumb of dirt anywhere, nor a chair misplaced. We are all alone here and we are dead.
Last night Boris discovered that he was lousy. I had to shave his armpits and even then the itching did not stop. How can one get lousy in a beautiful...

Nose To Grindstone - an advertisement for myself

I foresee that my nose will one day get me into trouble. Please stay awhile while I explain. Last week I was speaking on the phone with a friend I hadn't seen in more than 30 years. He was with another friend whom I hadn't seen in as many years and I had just met again in an event earlier in...

Kept away from church this morning by my cranky shoulder. I am sure God is not pleased with this and He's going to fix it quickly. I predict I shall be driving again by tomorrow morning.

Dreary day. Left shoulder still hurting from repetitively sleeping on it at night. Possibly dislocated (I hope not) , because regular paracetamol don't seem to help much ; unfortunately can't/won't take anything stronger. Incredible pain here. Can't drive; safest thing appears to just lie down,...

There is no magic here. We tamed Ebola by putting into action our tremendous abilities to FEAR , and which we have practiced over many decades and become experts at. Here in Nigeria, the fear of death (and gods ) is the beginning of wisdom (and end of Ebola).... especially after getting used...

I just found myself in the most wonderful house. I won't tell you the owner. Quite enjoying the pampering of the Filipino butler and stewards. This is way too cool.

Amusing to watch two illiterate girls try to get money out of an ATM this afternoon. Every time the machine told them 'Insufficient Funds' but as they didn't understand, they kept trying again and again. Finally they gave up and as they walked away frustrated, advised me the machine was out of...

Is this moringa leaf safe for human beings ? I chewed some of it the other day and consequently my head became very "correct" and I found it difficult to sleep. I think this stuff may be a narcotic. Please avoid it everyone. :(
