History of Valentine's Day

  The history of Valentine’s Day—and the story of its patron saint—is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. Still others insist that it was Saint Valentine of Terni, a bis

COVID-19 Pandemic: Its Effect On Educational System In Nigeria

  By Sodiq Adebayo Prior to the emergence of corona virus in the most populated country in the world, China. It has claimed many lives. However, none could ever imagine that the canker worm could spread from the abode to the whole so easily and readily. Now, currently speaking, no country in the planet is safe. We're all scared and felt concerned as our brothers and sisters from far and near are victims already. In January 9, 2020, the Chinese state media reported that a team of researchers led by Xu Jianguo had identified the pathogen behind the mysterious outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan as a novel coronavirus. The well recognized organization, WHO announced Covid-19 outbreak as a pandemic on 11 March, 2020 which has led to the total shut and lock down of countries in the whole world.

Education Is a Nightmare In Nigeria

By Ashimolowo Oyindamola Mistura  I stared at the TV with keen interest rest, a show for children was going on and they chorused the same song we were taught years back.  How long will we lie to these ones? How long will we keep the truth wrapped in a mystery ? Mystery unleashed when the reality slaps us hard in the face. We are in a rat race, a game of deceit and everyone is running to get a badge blindly and gullibly. Who said education was limited to four walls, a white board, chairs and a table to sit on? Who cooked this broth if fantasies that had been responsible for so many youths sinking? Many youths are blinded like a bat, they even drag whose dilapidated facility is the best!  I was just a teen but life befriended me with a lot of realities. At primary school we would play around and froth our worries into bubbles , we were beaten for failed assignments, still did not worry because our teacher was always right even though their shoes and shirts said otherwise. I would see a y

My Encounter With Some Religious Fanatics

By Abdul Azeez Akanji Have you ever did an interview and being disqualified because of your religion?  I remember these words " we're sorry to say, this television company is a Christian private own company and due to the fact that you are a Muslim we can't employ you". As an advocate of humanitarian activity, I tried to tell them "we are the same", being a Muslim, a Christian, a pagan or a traditionalist does not matter but what matters most is our way of dealing with "humans".  A Christian friend was searching for a job, and I helped him to get to a school in Ibadan, they looked at his curriculum vitae and said although he's a first-class accounting student but he's a Christian, they can't employ a Christian in their school. I became "dumb" hearing these words. As usual, I let them realized that the religion we are practicing does not really define our closeness to Almighty God but what truly defines us is our service to hum

Golden Spoon

A poem by Olakunle Seun ..Ours is a golden spoon.. To us a golden gift  is given, By our resources it was birthed, Mother nature freely gave, Bestowed and endowed, Never expecting a return. All of us she freely bestowed, Lavishing it all without a retain, Freely and cheerfully, We all received, The golden gift of mother nature. Its protection, unity she prescribed, Its longevity, oneness she described, Continuous glittering of it,tribalism she denied, Its trans generational existence,togetherness she suggest, Its value and adornment, oness of voice she opined. But alas,her suggestion all turned gibberish, Her suggestion at first we received, For her not to hold any back, But upon giving all, We denied the opinion of a faithful giver. To us a large population belongs, The gift has its source from here, The best land is here with us, Intellectuals to us belong, The echo of our selfish ambitions. Unity turned enmity, Empathy turned unconcerned, Togetherness turned diversity, Oness turned

My Encounter with a Cultist

By Akanji Abdul Azeez Ridwanullahi was a brother and a senior in secondary, a very huge senior. His status makes all the junior ones to respect him because if anybody mess up with him, he will mercilessly deal with the person. With his status, muscle, and authority as a senior, he became a terror in the school and everybody respect him. He usually tells us that his dream is to become a soldier because he like a rugged lifestyle.  Ridwanullahi got admitted to a very popular higher institution in the southern part of Nigeria and he continue to be "rugged" until he was rusticated from higher institution. I met him 2 years after he left me in secondary school and when I met him, I ask him how is higher institution was fast. Since I was ignorant then and I don't know anything about higher institution.  He told me, my brother, I was rusticated from school. Immediately he told me that, I look for the meaning of rusticated and I felt sad for him because he once told me while we w

My Encounter with a Yahoo guy

By Abdul Azeez Akanji Yahoo guys as we usually call them are youth who carries out fraudulent activity also known as 419.   Their activities have been rampant in Nigeria in recent years and this has become a source of concern for the government and conscious citizens of Nigeria.

Cherish her - A Poem

By Seun Alabi To Her.. To her, To her you must write, The hymn of my pen, Write to her,unravelling her beauty, Unravelling her beauty than the Sapphires. To her an archytpe of tender heartedness, To her an embodiment of fortunes, To her an Epitome of glad tidings, Write to her exposing her good deeds, Write to her appreciating an angel on earth. Flowers are Beautiful, Sapphires glows, Alabaster smells nice, But the beauty of flowers and glowings of sapphire, Are not worth comparing to her Beauty. The Glows of her eyes soothes the heart, Like the cold to the skin, Is the touch of her hand, Like the honey to the mouth, Is the expression of her lips. By her name I have known, How caring she will be, By her smile I predict how tendered hearted she will be, By her humility I have known how great she will be, And closer to her I confirm,the thoughts in my heart.   What every man should do... Seun Alabi is a content creator, a reporter and a 3D Animist, he derives pleasure in writing. He is a

My Encounter with a Prostitute (Olosho)

  ⁩By Akanji Abdul Azeez Olosho as we call them are people like us. Most of them are into it because of the rejection they got from family, friends, and society. Although it’s not a good idea to venture into such an act but every action has a reason.  My encounter with Nigerian Olosho in Côte d’Ivoire made me to understand that most of them are into it against there will. I have a secondary school friend that is their agent and I don’t know he was into this business until he asked me to meet him in a club and that club was full of olosho.  I was surprised to see pretty girls of age 18-23, when I approached one of them and entertained her with beer and try to push her mouth for her to talk. That’s when she opened up on why she is into that business. Although their agents usually give them serious warnings not to reveal their real identities to people. For instance she may be Khadijat in Nigeria but their agent will change her name to Angel, Victoria, etc in cote d'Ivoire.  The 18yea

Virginity Without Blood By Akanji Abdul Azeez

Virginity is regarded as a pride of womanhood and in most african countries a virgin woman is believe to be a blessing to the marriage but many home has broken because during the first intimacy , the woman did not bleed.  Many women compalined that they did not bleed during their first sexual intercourse while it's still a mystery to many men that how would their wives tell them they are  virgin but would not bleed on their first sexual intercourse.  Medically, Some women will bleed after having sex for the first time, while others won't. Both are perfectly normal. A woman may bleed when she has penetrative sex for the first time because of her hymen breaking. The hymen is a thin piece of skin that partially covers the entrance to the vagina. It usually breaks during sex, if it hasn't already broken before. The hymen can break quite easily before a woman has sex for the first time, through activities such as horse riding and other sports. A woman may not know her hymen has


By Olakunle Seun Just as you see, The cry of the judge, Reckon with the seen, Not with the perceived, Assumption they say might be costly. Reckoning with the truth, Bitter they say it is, Striving for the known, The known, hatred might develop, Saying it as seen is the best,(Just as I see,justice). Acceptance you might want, Dejection, sooner it comes, When the hidden is unveiled, The unseen turns seen, Will pay to "say just as you see". Never dump the truth, In an unknown land, Subjecting it to seek voice, Where it is unheard, Let it feel at home,say it " just as you see". Embracing it, Death they say may occur, All because it is hated, But never give a dim,they can only kill, Judgement is never theirs. Dedicated to George Floyd a unarmed black man, died on 25 May in Minneapolis after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck for nine minutes while Floyd repeatedly complained that he could not breathe.
