During the reign of Julius Caesar before the rise of Athuru 111,some wagging tongues said everything good will come only if there's a change of the government inspector.

It's about a twelfth night after midsummer night dream of a nation in custody. So today, away from the maddening crowd in a solitude I'll write what I want without pride and prejudice.

Today after a long walk to freedom,we're no longer at ease as things fall apart. I remember 1984,exactly two thousand season ago when women of owu basked in the joys of motherhood, but today, the wives revolt and girls at war stoops to conquer. Before, an African child can do a dance of destiny in an African thunderstorm when night fall in Soweto or when the sunset in Biafra, but now,in this hard times even the people of the likes of the renowned doctor Faustus, Macbeth, Robinson Crusoe, Romeo and Juliet are no longer on the dining table; they sort for oil on water; economic is gradually getting to point zhero. The native son of Ovonramwen Nogbaisi, the proud king, now eat without a Silva spoon and the school boy, eze goes to school on naked soles, such vanity is a vanity of human wishes.

Beware,soles brothers of the ambush they laid on the road at night when having a walk in the night or crossing the bar. Don't be fooled that the country is yet violence free. Remember, our king,Oedipus, is not a man of the people neither is he a man of all season who knows about the ways of the  world. Hence, our case is not a matter of honour but the last duty to him.

Only yesterday, brother jero,with Gulliver, travel the Wuthering heights of the anthill of the Savannah, crossing the river between Ibadan and Idanre in search of job but there was just no vacancy for them because their father is the palmwine drinkard himself. Sozaboy,Ozidi and the agadagba warriors from the treasure island of the country, felt treated like the forbidden tongue and resorted to violence again after three years of bidding a farewell to arms.

They've shed petals of blood in the North that even the blood of a stranger is not spared because only a fragment of the citizens who don't know the importance of being ernest loot funds and places much ado about nothing to do with the rest.

The problems with Nigeria are archetypal, sociological,economic,Marxist,formalist,functionalist and structuralist approaches.
