Married to a Woman That Changed Overnight

Tunji Ilori from Oyo state wrote: I got married as a promising young man with a fairly good job in the telecoms industry. Life was good for us as a couple until I was forced to resign 12 years into marriage. Following heavy persuasion from my wife, I spent the bulk of my severance allowance on building a house in our village. I then invested the rest in starting a business. Unfortunately, the business failed in less than two years. Since then, my wife has been carrying the financial burden of the family and as a result, she has suddenly...

Travelling As an Adventure

Travelling around the world can be an adventure. It can equally be a hobby. However, it can scare others to death. To these people, traveling is a necessary evil. I have a strange ambition to visit all parts of the world. Notice that I didn’t say all countries of the world. I mean all places. When I say places, I mean spaces.

Motorcycle Transportation: The Deadlock, The Way Forward

For many years, the operations of commercial motorcycle riders – popularly called “okada” in Nigerian parlance – were limited to rural areas. Then they served as the major means of transportation from motor parks to the hinterlands of rural communities, or as shuttle between the rural communities and the distant farms. But with the increase in the number of vehicles in our cities, coupled with the unending derelict state of most of our roads, which lead to heavy traffic congestion and its attending effects every day, motorcycles have found their ways into the scheme of things of our urban...
