Dear Mother!

  • Sunday, Mar 22, 2020


Today is Mother's Day and two Sundays ago was International Women's Day. I took time out to celebrate the mothers and women in my life for their labour over me. I do not take their love for granted at all, especially my biological mum. I am a product of the nurturing I have received from people who have played the role of a mother to me.

My family and I just returned from a week-long trip a few days ago and I was quite taken aback at the dust I found around the house.

I ensured the house was thoroughly cleaned before we traveled and the amount of cobwebs the spider spun made me wonder if we were away longer than a week. I also noticed moist and about and around ... Read more >>

Birthday Blues

  • Tuesday, Jun 11, 2019


As we grow and advance in life, birthdays gradually shift from the groovy euphoria to a serious moment of retrospect.

A realization suddenly hits you in the head, Gbagan! 'I am XX years today, what have I done with my life'?  And suddenly we begin to wonder how time went by so quickly.

  • Wednesday, Apr 17, 2019


My brief stay at Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Katsina revealed to me another shade of abuse of the female gender that is still prevalent in some parts of Nigeria deeply hidden in some cultural beliefs and norms.

Freshly Pressed

Absolute Baseline

  • Wednesday, Sep 12, 2018


Life operates by principles, and baselines are standing values that cut across every aspect of life. For example, the baseline for mastering any language is rooted in the alphabets, and the baseline for numeracy is in numbers.
