Naija Langwej poem "Hu get haus?" By Eriata Oribhabor

Yu wek op, komot haus
beta wota de flo fo yo haus
yestade, tode, bot yu no si tumoro.
Tink...ask, hu get haus and tumoro?

InWen yu stand op
mek op yo bodi fo evritin,
bot tink se evritin de fo mek op,
tink...ask, hu get bodi and mek op ?

Wen yu biuld haus
fo Lagos, Abuja and evriwia
luk op, luk daun, and evriwia.
Tink...ask, na mi get ol dis haus?

If yu sabi hau bodi and haus
de enta fo ol mata, yu go nou se
no bi tok se, na-im de bi se.
Tink...hu get bodi? Hu get haus?

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
