ASUU STRIKE: THE HYPOCRISY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Reading through the news of the implementation of the no work, no pay policy of the federal government towards the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) pressing demands has been received with mixed feelings.  It's an eyesore how much our educational sector is rotting and decaying nowadays, with no one to revamp the system. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) embarked on an indefinite strike since November 5, 2018, to press home the government agreement with the union  to honour its 2009 agreements; funding of public universities, earned academic allowances, salary shortfalls and pension matters.

Successive governments have shown no serious interest in the Educational sector of Nigeria; we have poor/inadequate hostel facilities, congested lecture halls, overstrained laboratories, poor sanitary conditions, amongst others. Undergraduates sit on bare floors or stand to have a gaze of the lecturer through the window.…

The Concept of Missing People | Akinwale Peace Akindayo

Rant 0168

At times they say, it is your absence that makes people miss you but they forget to say that even at your absence, — that they are not able to reach out to you when they want to do make them unmiss you yet miss you with no desperation as much as they had needed to hear from you. They have you fresh in their memory but they can not reach you simply because they do not have the chance....
Then, how could missing someone be felt or expressed?

Man itself is conscious cum subconscious or even unconscious (to the public) of what happens to him — that, man, in his sleep, dreams and feels it is a reality that occurred when he's not fully present. That, although, it is not an illusion as some would think a dream is, (which a dream is one of the subconscious things that happens to man when he lays on his bed and goes into thoughts; earlier preoccupied or not even when his mind is absent; that's why dreams are called divine) feels yet remembers or forget to…

Letter from Austin to Lydia
Date: October 30, 1997.


This is for you that broke away from love.

Dear Lydia,
It is not very hard to believe that our intimacy is now far. We were not naive when we started but we were young but we knew what we were doing, I'm sure we did. I still can not forget the day at the basement where we looked so straight into our eye for so long; I wanted to count stars in your eye, I felt I needed to pick it. In lieu of that, I was interested at counting the number of times you'll blink/wink your eye and I, darling Lydia, I told you I lose count. Because you said you cannot stare into my eye for so long because you'll make a quicker blink/wink no matter how serious you want to seem because you are afraid, you're afraid of the connection; and we can just osculate after a long look. But that day, your confession did not matter. I remember. How we held hands together and walked to the park. You said you do not want me to carry your bag for y…

to god be the glory

we only know how to define death:
sadness. black dress.
plaintive hymn of appreciation
on a sunday morning. to god be the glory.
a mud running on the face.
a hanging image, like a chain of web —
on the corner, adjacent the mirror of the room.
say the dead lives on,
say the dead never die.
say a sorrow is running
like a river. like a tiny thing.
a sorrow so tiny, that makes you
forget how ugly you look when you cry.
say death is the only hope of man,
that life is for memories
of our dead.
hallelujah.

RANT 0001 to 0100

Writing/starting Rants is one of the best things that I could say has happened to me in the writing "world". They said a child rants, they said rant is a noise, I also said it too but this RANT is a compilation of meaningful words. You know, you only have to scream, talk, make the noise in a world that shouts or else, no one will hear you. That is, if you can't scream, you can whisper... Anyhow, speak and let them hear you.


INTRODUCTION
before you read 
Life is in stages and as we grow, we learn and see many things: some things influence us, some doesn’t; some make us and some mar us. But our reflection and definition of these things are what really and truly maters. Many things are to be done, acknowledged and accepted by us but at times, we do not even notice them, let alone acknowledge or learn from them; they end up not influencing us or we end up not allowing its influence on us because in the first place, we didn’t take cogniz…
