We’re breeding illiterates


A cursory look at the education sector in our country would reveal that things are not going on smoothly there at all. With protests by universities students over increase in school fees, a nearly one-year old strike by polytechnics and colleges of technology lecturers, and teachers’ strikes in some states, we are simply breeding illiterates.

The Sexual Minority and Legislative Zealotry


By Prof. Wole Soyinka

Let us go back a little, nearly a year ago, to that earlier attempt to interfere in, and legislate on sexual conduct between consenting adults. Profiting from that experience, I would like to caution – yet again - that it is high time we learnt to ignore what we conveniently designate and react to as ‘foreign interference’.  By now, we should be able to restrict ourselves to the a priori position that, as rational beings, we make pronouncements on choices of ethical directions from our own collective and/or majority will, independent of what is described as ‘external dictation’.

Festus Iyayi was, by every account, a truly exceptional Nigerian.
