HIJAB, FREEDOM AND OBJECTIFYING WOMEN By Lan Rey Hassan

  Just outside the gate of the Tecno office in Computer Village Ikeja, tweaking, twirling, swirling their waists lewdly, flaunting their breasts in the name of dancing were three ladies who had to have been- if not teenagers, in their early twenties. Of course, there was a boy too with them, but lo and behold,…

SHE DESERVES TO BE SPOILT By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  I made one step into the kitchen, took severals back in velocity. I couldn’t stay 60 seconds long. Why? The heat therein was at its meridian – hotter than the oven.

CAMPAIGN ON THE MIMBAR By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  To make political success in Nigeria, you must be sufficiently witted in abracadabric qualities – deceits, lies, falsification, demagogery et cetera.

THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM By Ummu Ubaidah Penword

  I used to think of myself being independent and able to support myself But the whispers of the past wind, once a terrible gale dancing along my skin; Feeling cold and almost emotionless, the pain eliminating all other feelings Amidst the blinding terror coupled with agony, I wonder if I could ever find the…

WHAT IF WE KNOW By Ummu Ubaidah Penword

  What if we know that death is imminent and certain? Has our knowledge of it impelled us to do good or bad?? Sometimes I wonder what goes in the heart of Man when he hears about the death of another, He feels sorry, sad and he worries about when he would meet the same…
