AZUBUIKE AZIKIWE writes: Musings of an impaired being.

Does it really matter that I conform to the norms of the day?

What perfect blueprint is there for the journey called life?

Who are you to chastise me for being filled with flaws?

Only one was made perfect.

Who deems it otherwise?


Who made you judge and jury over the morally bankrupt?

How dare you raise your nose when your anus is filthy?

Aren’t we all on this journey to utopia?

What being dares claim arrival?


That life is fraught with conundrums and challenges is not far from the truth,

That humans of different races will be judged alike is up for debate.

I’m filled with vices, and so are you,

But hypocrisy shields thy misdeeds.


Listen, fellow weaklings

Take caution as you condescend,

For the descent is inevitable.


What fun is there to life if we don’t fall and rise?

What story will be told if we don’t lose and repossess?

How would we become fitter if we are not faced with storms?

Who can best define our cause on devil’s roof?

Is it survival or procreation?

Is it strife or oppression?

No one really can tell, only HIM knows


Clerics hold us bondage to selfish doctrines,

And we gullibly oblige.

Like a procession of zombies,

Yearning for the release their words present,

Unable to put our reasoning to test,

And lose the cloak of vulnerability.


Who exactly are we?

Puppets of nature?

Or rivals in the ring of life?

Do you wonder why harmony dwells scarce in the elements?

Or why philophobia lives in the heart of men?

I’m speechless, I tremor

At the level of discord we harbor


Can humans ever really change?

Do we just suppress some deeds at whim?

And display others when we desire.

Will we ever be whole?

INDECENT DRESSING: A decent dressing, of course, is part of human life, because it elicits respect and protects the person’s dignity. While the antonym which is indecent dressing is a social malady that ridicules the person and is likely to shock or irritate people. It exposes parts of the body, usually sexual organs, which normally should be covered. Decent dressing by students/ working class/ celebrities etc attracts respect from lecturers, guards, classmates, boss, colleagues, fans etc and most importantly can go a long way to protect you from being the target of rape, sexual harrassment and scandal. Indecent dressing has adverse effect on a person; it brings hatred, disrespect from people. Good dressing is good business. For example, most victims of rape on campus are indecent dressers, they are seductive. This habit is traceable to all age groups in the society, but common among the youth. In Nigeria, most…

MARILYN ANONA writes: Now I ask again, what are your values?

Do you know your values? Before you answer this question, be sure you understand the meaning of the word “value”. Values are a set of beliefs that shape our lives. They are the principles that make the core of our being and define who we are and how we choose to be, to do, or to have. They determine what is important for us. They answer the questions, Why am I different from other people? Why do I choose to do certain things and avoid others? Why do I behave a certain way? Why am I attracted to some people and not to others? What am I willing to die for? What am I committed to? And many others. We all have values though most people go about life not really knowing what they are. Some people may know some of their values but they act in an unconscious level, like an automatic pilot. Most of the situations we face in life are acted upon as if they were an automatic reaction, we are not really aware that it is our values that are making us choose how to deal with these situations.


Our values are related to our culture, our society, and our own experience. We receive our values from the important people in our lives… first, parents then family members, friends, and other influential people, such as religious leaders, teachers, political and show biz or entertainment personalities, and icons and society in general, and so on. In fact, we keep borrowing values and changing them until we reach a certain level of maturity and decidedly know which ones best serve us. But they are still not set on stone. Each decision we make comes from a value that we hold dear. For example, to me, nothing can take the place of love in my life. Love influences everything I do. To some, patriotism is a great value to behold. To others, education is more important. To some a lie indicates dishonesty, while others couldn’t care less about a white lie here and there. If we want to understand who we are, we need to be aware of the values we hold dear. If we want to understand others, we need to know about their values. It is this learning about ours and their values that will help us have tolerance for the diverse world around us, and accept people just as they are. Our relationships will thrive, especially our loving relationships, a better understanding of ourselves and our partner will lead to a better relationship in general, and, as a product of this understanding, we will find happiness.

That is why knowing of our values is so important. Our values determine who we are and give us directions to where we want to be, what we desire to have, and what we want to do. It is based on our values that we determine our goals, objectives and directions. Now I ask again, what are your values? Be Enlightened! Be inspired!! Be Motivated!!

MARILYN ANONA writes : Most times, the dirty fellow doesn’t even know he or she is dirty and the tidy one usually comes across as irritable, intolerant or as a perfectionist.

Phew! Having to cope with someone who is untidy or dirty is one of the hardest things in life for me. I am the type of person who is very tidy and organized. I do not repeat my clothes… We live in the tropics so we often perspire and have dusts around which to me is enough reason not to repeat your clothes. Most people use the public cabs or even buses… You use the public toilets while you are away from home too and for me, this is a bigger reason for you not to repeat your clothes. Sweating and passing through dusty places means that we have to always wash our bodies (bath). And in washing our bodies, we should use good soap and of course sponge. I have realized that most people do not use sponge while washing their bodies. No sponge, no bath gloves, no exforliant… My goodness! How does that body get clean? Yes, I am asking because I know that its almost impossible for your body to get clean without sponge especially when you don’t use sponge at all. If you tell me that you use sponge say twice or thrice in a week, I may understand or pardon you but not using sponge at all? You are a dirty fellow no apologies. Again, how does a normal person use a bath towel for weeks, 1month, 2months without washing the towel? Why should a woman wear panties twice? I mean wear, pull keep and wear the next day and when asked she would say “I didn’t wear for long yesterday” Its really sad and gross. The height of irritation. I could go on and on! My question this morning is, “HOW DOES A NEAT AND VERY TIDY PERSON LIVE WITH AN UNTIDY/ DIRTY PERSON?” I am asking because living together with this untidy/dirty person can give birth to a lot of problems. This is because most times, the dirty fellow doesn’t even know he or she is dirty and the tidy one usually comes across as irritable, intolerant or as a perfectionist. Remember this dirty or untidy fellow may be your HUSBAND, WIFE, GIRL FRIEND, BOY FRIEND, SIBLING, FRIEND, NEIGHBOUR, ROOM MATE etc. And this is very complicated though it looks simple on the surface. Its not something that can be ignored. How do you cope? I need your contributions! Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!

AUGUSTUS C J CHIJIOKE writes: Delivery room Versus Labour room.

Nigerian nurses/ nursing students need serious “reformation” especially midwifery students.

FOREIGN NURSES VS NIGERIAN NURSES: If you witness where a woman is giving birth abroad, even as a man you will feel like getting pregnant. Abroad, for only one woman in labour, you will see an Obstetrician, A Gynecologist, A General Surgeon, A Specialist Surgeon, An Anesthetist, A Registered Nurse /Midwife/ plus Social Welfare Officer and so on–and they will pamper the woman in labour… that is why it is called “DELIVERY ROOM” over there”.

But in Nigeria it is called “LABOUR ROOM” and if you see what women pass through, hmmm!! You will agree with me that it should also be called “Confession and Trial Room”; Nigerian nurses make pregnancy look like a criminal offence. And the worse thing is that they are everywhere both in private and government hospitals. For Instance, when a woman who is in labour is brought to the hospital, they will throw her into the labour room and lock her up like a criminal awaiting for trial and they will go to the reception room and be gossiping or go into the Dr’s office and be chatting until the woman will start bleating like goat “kpaa-kpaa-kpaa.” And when the nurse(s) enters the labour room to meet her, is not help her but to insult her: “You will be hearing things like “Na me do you?” “Even the man wey do u no dey here!” “Madam push oo!” “Abeg open your legs joor!” “Abi you wan kill your pikin?” “You better push now or I go leave you here oo!”
