Some are relatively informal. While others maintain a middle ground, which means they are either formal or informal depending on the situation at hand. I must say clearly that the way you comport yourself with friends online should be different from your habits at work 'virtually'. What then are the cultures to observe, learn and display in this new age? 
Culture of Attendance and Preparedness Physical attendance and preparedness are absolutely one of the coveted attributes of serious-minded people in any given environment.

Twelve (12) Trends that Rocked the Year 2017 in Nigeria

Image
In a span of 365days, there is a likely tendency for certain occurrences to manifest with 100% level of certainty in any country. Occurrences like Accidents, Birth, Death, Holidays, Seasonal Changes (Raining, Dry and Harmattan), Criminal Acts, Court Cases, and all sorts are natural mystic that comes every year in most if not all countries or communities today.
For instance, it is obvious that Nigeria recorded a significant amount of birth and death rate this year; different climatic conditions; and numerous police/court cases as a result of peoples' involvement in any crime or deviant act. Having established this fact, it is, however, imperative to enlist the peculiarities of the Year 2017 among other years in Nigeria.

Why Black Slave Trade Thrives in Libya Today

Image
From time immemorial, slave trade has been a thing of the Whites against the Blacks residing in the regions of their colonization. In essence, colonization begat the idea of the slave trade with or without the knowledge of Black frontline elders on the consequences for the Black race and its long-term benefits for the White.
On a contrary note, it is appalling, shocking and unexpectedly that a Black race will ever think of enslaving one another for whatsoever reason or benefit in this present dispensation. The case of Libya today is a living proof. Basically, Libya has been one of the richest countries in Africa, at least during the long-term reign of their supreme leader "Muammar Gaddafi". This wealth, therefore, attracted all and sundry within and outside neighbouring African states to Libya. But after the forceful dethronement and death of this supreme leader "Muammar Gaddafi" on several pressed charges nationally and internationally, Libya has hereby faced ser…

Why Venture into Things that Threatens your Freedom

Image
Naturally, every human being is born free at any point in time anywhere in the world but the laid down procedure in such society can, therefore, manipulate the freedom into another thing entirely. In this case, the clan or group one comes from in a society determines to an extent whether the individual is totally free, partially free or a slave. 
Freedom in whatever form is, therefore, nature in the making but it can also be seized, threatened or suspended by one’s dealing – day to day activities or by the society one lives in. although, a threat to one’s freedom by the society might seem in obscurity due to the human rights guaranteed in the constitution of the land but, in the real sense – such freedom can be threatened/seized by the leading authority of the land. This notion brings the quote of President Idi Amin’s of Uganda necessary “Freedom of Speech is Free but Freedom after Speech I can’t assure you. In the same vein, the current hate speech campaign by APC government is anot…

Image
Ojude-Oba celebration is a day of joy pertaining to Ogun State (precisely the Ijebu region) which usually occur some days after Ileya festival depending on the region’s calendar. Some regions celebrate their Ojude- Oba after three days of Ileya festival, some after two days, while some after the Ileya festival e.t.c.

For more clarity, diverse social groups (Bobakeye, Bobagbimo, Bobagunte, Regbe Regbe...) in the land known and accepted by the King assemble to celebrate the traditional values of the land via choreography, dancing, singing, eulogizing e.t.c.

12 Cogent Things that Have Happened to Nigeria after the Demise of Chief M.K.O. Abiola

Image
As celebrated today in Nigeria- the 12th day of June 2017, marks the 24th year that the late global figure, powerful businessman, philanthropist and politician named Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola popularly known as Chief M.K.O Abiola contested for The Presidency in 1993. It was indeed a day worth remembering for Nigerians who massively voted for Abiola to rule the nation but surprising an unexpected occurred.
The day that should have been a day of celebration for Yoruba folks and Nigeria at large later turns out to be mere history as we speak without any official note that Chief M.K.O once ruled the nation, Nigeria at a particular time. History reveals that General Ibrahim Babangida's administration reportedly annulled the election for reasons best known to him. During this period, all efforts by Chief M.K.O to be reinstated as the winner of the election was futile regardless of his international connections.

Why Ijebu-Ode Will Not Experience Desired Development Anytime Soon

Image
Ijebu-Ode, one of the popular town in the heart of Ogun State - Nigeria, remains less-developed from earliest time till date for numerous reasons. One of which is why people move in and out of the area majorly for celebrating yuletide season (Ileya, New Year, Ojude Oba...). It is, therefore, worrisome when rich folks of Ijebu origin flocks around major cities within and outside Nigeria, leaving their beloved home in an apologetic state. This state is apologetic because Ijebu-Ode could not boast of certain essential elements (good roads, employment opportunities, sound/affordable public health care system, vibrant business activities...).
There are numerous factors raised to justify why Ijebu-Ode will not experience development anytime soon among her contemporaries. Carefully, go through these factors and see for yourself
Interest of Ijebu's
It is often believed that interest of indigenes is a formidable factor to consider whenever there is a need for change and development. Such c…

Why You Don't Have to Joke with this Season of Ramadan

Image
Ramadan! Ramadan!! Ramadan!!!
It is another season for Muslims all around the Globe to observe their yearly fasting and prayer. The importance of this season to Nigerians is nothing one can shy away from due to the awkward experiences in Nigeria today.
Actually, no sensible being from any religious background; Islam, Christianity or Traditional should be pleased with the situation of things in Nigeria. Hence, praying and fasting is a necessity for all and sundry regardless of their religious preference. Although, current acting President - Prof Yemi Osibajo said lately that Nigeria's situation has gone past fasting and prayer. Am sure he said that due to the level of havoc done by past governments.

Five Places Knowledge can be Easily Acquired in Life (No 3 will Surprise you)

Image
There is no gainsaying "Knowledge is Power" when there is no particular place linkable to such saying. Arguably, learning starts from one's cradle and ends at one's death. There exist some designated institutions/establishments to instil discipline and knowledge about how life operates.
Noticeably, the starting point of an individual learning begins with his/her family. Here, family members imbibe or teach new and existing members acceptable ways of life - behavioural expectations are imbibed in the life of children so as not to be a scapegoat of life and government.
Another important institution that teaches people real hard is the school system at a different level. At the primary level, the 3R's (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic) is the focal point of the institutions while the next level built on the 3R's to prepare one for the higher institution. At the entry of higher citadel of learning, students focus on their courses estranged with a vocation in orde…

How to Save People from Committing Suicide in a Breathtaking Economy

Image
When someone we love or acquainted with commits suicide, the most common question on our lips is 'Why did he/she do that?' especially in cases where the victim did not leave behind any clue as to the reason why. I feel our lips should be dancing not to gossips nor our assumptions as to what made the victim resort to suicide but to what we could have done to help as family, friends, neighbour or acquaintance. 
Many a time, we respond to people's indirect cry for help in very harsh manner. We say things like 'If you don't like it, go and die', 'Do you feel you are the only one with problems in this world?', e.t.c. Though, those words are not intended to hurt other people's feelings but it could happen to do just that.
