For Jupiter, Recession Is Indeed ‘Just A Word’

Why am I even writing about Jupiter?  Well, probably because there is this heavy guilt I feel for starving him the greater part of last weekend.

My boss often says: "We think Boko Haram is our biggest challenge in this country, but you know what? The real challenge is the quality of human resources we have."

Dear President Trump,

Of course, I was one of those literally dazed when you became the president of the exceptional United States.

What should constitute a home? Well our President and Commander-in-Chief, Muhammadu Buhari recently made it clear – the Kitchen, the Living Room and the Other Room.
