The alarming rate of unemployment among youths is mind-boggling. It’s a common trend to see people graduate for many years without a job. The problem of unemployment has generated so much interest that some unscrupulous individuals and organisations are beginning to cash in on the situation to extort unsuspecting job-seekers. Eradicating unemployment is fast becoming a million dollar enterprise.

All around major cities, you will see photocopied and hurriedly written vacancy posters littering the walls- “Night workers wanted in a factory”; “Hotel Manager wanted- salary from N70, 000”. One wonders what time of the day such notices are posted. Many job-seekers who yield to such adverts share stories of how they were lured into different ponzi schemes and made to lose the little money they had on them. (more…)

Harvest of Corruption by Frank Ogodo Ogbeche

Harvest of Corruption is a play (drama) written by Frank Ogbeche to condemn the ills and foibles of the contemporary Nigerian society. The play is a satire illustrating how corruption permeates the fabric of the Nigerian society and affects institutions like the police force, the judiciary, and government ministries.

The play revolves mostly around Aloho, a naïve and jobless university graduate who is desperately searching for a job. Her meeting with Ochuole, a notorious old school mate of hers leads to a series of events which lend credence to the popular saying ‘You reap what you sow’. (more…)

Naughty by Dayo Abdul

naughty front cover for blog

Two words describe this book- uncommon brilliance. In spite of my busy schedule, I couldn’t resist a second read. Naughty is a well-researched, well-written and easy-to-read children science fiction that would whet the imagination of every child. It’s the story of five curious pupils who got trapped in a space ship mounted on rockets during a field trip to the John Glenn Research Centre.

I am particularly enthralled by the author’s simplistic description of the “Wanderer N5” to her young audience. Also, the pictorial illustrations in Naughty are quite alluring and would sustain the interest of young readers.

I can’t wait to have the second part of this brilliant story. I’ll keep it for my little boy till he’s able to read.

With the author’s permission, I have put up the e-book for free download. Download.
