AMIDST TEARS 2…….

Her name was Natasha Evans,beautifully tall and elegant,she sat cross-legged across my table,she wore ​A̶̲̥̅̊ short sleeve red blouse with flowery design,she was scared,i could tell by the look in her eyes and the way she clasped and unclasped her hands,i could see traces of sweat rolling down her cheeks,i knew her, recognized her but she clearly had Ŋ☹ hint of who  was since we relocated before she barely turned six.

Her name was the only word she had spoken since she came in2 ma house,I’m not used 2 receiving client at home but  knew her,this was different. “Ga-bri-ella”, she pronounced my name like she had never heard or spoken in her entire life,guessed she was twenty since  just turned thirty, couldn’t help but stare at her while trying to figure out why she came to m̶̲̥̅ƹ,but then  heard the movement of her legs and realised  was making her nervous, heard sobs and looked up,she was crying, stood up,brought her ​A̶̲̥̅̊ kleenex and stood by as she wiped her face furiously with it, “I’m pregnant” those were her second word, was confused,didn’t know how this concerned my line of duty and then she uttered them again “I’m pregnant and the father of the child is after my life”…..

Press Statement on Alamieyeseigha Pardon: An irresponsible use of Presidential power by selfish President Jonathan. By PCJ *Pardon for Alamieyeseigha

Featured

Again Nigeria was brought to public ridicule last week by no other person but President Jonathan when he promoted corruption to the highest level following an insane pardon granted to his unrepentant criminally-mind­ed ex-boss and benefactor who till present is a fugitive in the UK.

It stands wisdom on the head why the president would choose to be romancing oddities that are immoral to the general good of the nation. What message has he passed by this singular mischievous action to the youth of this nation? Corruption is a way of life that pays when you steal in billions?

* Irresponsible Presidential action

The president’s misuse of presidential powers for his selfish political debt payment is the most irresponsible thing a man occupying such an important office would do. President Jonathan must be warned that Nigeria is not a local government in his native Bayelsa state nor an extension of his private estate where he could act with unreserved impunity.

A state pardon granted to Alamieyeseigha is at best a stupid use of power. Such a matter should not have been considered by any soundly coherent mind. I would suggest a psychiatry evaluation of the president’s mind, let it not be that we have a mad man at the helms of our affairs.

*Opposition Parties Complicity

As I have always said, the problem with Nigeria is the paddi-paddi posture of our opposition parties. It is not a surprise that none of the Governors in the opposition voiced against this foolish/­childish deployment of presidential powers for self gain. To make matters worse they have all adopted see-no-evil-say­-no-evil siddon look approach.

The failure of APC governors to use this opportunity to set the nation of the road of recovery shows they are yet to understand the problems of Nigeria talkless of providing better viable solution.

* NASS and Constitutional Amendment

I call on the National Assembly to immediately consider this irresponsible pardon and propose an amendment to the constitution to check future abuse.

* Jonathan biting the Finger that fed him

Nigeria has been so good to president Jonathan, he has benefited tremendously from this land. The way and manner he has chosen to pay the nation back for this rare opportunity to serve is evil.

I have no doubt that this is one act president Jonathan will live to regret before God and the Nation.

He called to her,i could still see the fear in her eyes and i felt her heart beat faster than it should,she was just five but five years on earth had not been an easy one for her,i heard her pause at the doorway,contemplating and getting ready for the routine ahead,she’s been used to this since she was three,she was picked by her father from the orphanage where her mother dumped her three months after her birth, heard the creek at my door and knew mum was about checking on m̶̲̥̅ƹ,i quickly ran back to bed not ready to listen to another long lecture on habits if found peeping at another apartment,i knew what was going to happen next,S̤̥̈̊Ơ̴̴͡ i didn’t bother going back to the window,nobody believed my stories,afterall,i was just fifteen and ​A̶̲̥̅̊ kid,i closed my eyes and shivered at the thought of what was about to happen to the girl next door…….TO BE CONT’D

10 Myths About Writers and Writing

Love writing? Don’t know where to start? … A must read..

P.A. Moed

In order to write creatively, we need to exercise our free-spirited and impulsive right brain.  It might take a while to “liberate” this side of the brain especially if we have worked in fields that are linear, concrete, and require rationale thought.  This is what happened to me many years ago when I switched from a career in teaching and publishing to full-time writing.   As I began my apprenticeship in the creative arts,  I had to dispel several myths about the writing process and writers.

1.  Myth: Writers Are Strange.

There is an element of truth to this!  Writers (and other creative people) must be willing to look below the surface of everyday life and explore the world and relationships like a curious outsider.  This perspective sets us apart, but at the same time, it allows us…
