I have loved drawing for as long as I can remember. I grew up being a scribbler. I drew on the walls of our house (got spanked several times), I drew behind all my note books and those of my siblings. In fact I constituted an art nuisance in the house.Continue reading

THE EMBRYO LAWYER

Phew! Sorry guys for the long break from my end. Was a sad moment being prevented from doing what I love most as I had a lot of personal issues to contend with. Am back with a better bang! Today I bring you the thoughts of one of my mentees. Sit back and enjoy!

#1 Presidential Movement

Security at the ICC was so tight. A combination of DSS, Police, Army and Civil Defence Officers manned all areas surrounding the vicinity of the ICC. The arrival of State House Security Operatives tightened the security leash. I was denied entry at first. “We cannot afford a security breach” the State House Security Operative told me. The connecting gate from the ICC to NICON was sealed and thus we had to do almost a 60 degrees walk to NICON. However, the security operatives were very civil. Despite that, fear no gree me take pictures of them oh.

THE 2015 NBA ANNUAL GENERAL CONFERENCE (AGC) COMMENCES!

Yea! You heard right!

“The annual ritual of legal gentlemen and judicial brethren conglomerating for academic, legal and socio-cum political tete- a-tete on the legal, political and social quagmires obfuscating legal practice, asphyxiating legal practitioners and militating against societal equilibrium viz a vis the temporal and permanent change romancing the political system which is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind like the Biblical Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin, has descended on …”

“There should be no relationship between a Science Student and an Arts Student, the only thing that holds you together is just two subjects, English Language and Mathematics. You should not associate with them or have anything to do with them. Don’t ever go to their class …”

The above statement is credited to my Chemistry Teacher in secondary School. My Chemistry Teacher, let us call him Uncle P (we called our teachers uncles and aunties), was a young man pushed into the very difficult task of teaching by the country’s number one killer of dreams; unemployment (teaching is not an easy task for those who it’s not their passion).

I had carefully crossed the four lane Oshodi/Apapa Expressway after I alighted from a Mile 2 bound Danfo bus. I was fagged out from the days job but not too tired to notice a large crowd of  people watching a fight between a Danfo Driver and an Agbero. I quickly took a good place amongst the spectators. In today’s world where people paid as high as a $100, 000. 00 to watch a Mayweather v. Pacquiao bout, who would reject a more exciting offer to watch a street fight for free.

Ever imagined a lion the supposed king of the jungle, running for its dear life with a herd of buffalo in hot pursuit? Well even the lawless jungles where only the strongest and the fittest survive have rules of survival. The strongest or the fittest who breach it rarely live to tell the story.

The title of this piece is derived from a programme on National Geographic Channel depicting scenes in the wild where a predator is running from a prey as pictured above.
