Book Excerpt - The Christmas Ultimatum by Unoma Nwankwor

Posted in: , ,

“Mr. Rice. What are you doing here?” she asked, wrapping her arms around herself.
“It’s nice to see you again, Ola. To answer your question, this is my office.” He extended his hand.
Olanma hesitated at first and then took his hand in a firm handshake. The first and last time she saw him, was when he came to visit Zara in New York. She was still sore over Derrick and that day he must have smiled at her funny because she’d let him have it. She was not going to be another girl that he could add as a notch to his belt considering his reputation. Olanma had stormed out without as much as a backward glance. She had since apologized to Zara but didn’t expect to see him here today.

Posted in: , ,

We're loving this picture of Nigerian president and first lady, Goodluck and Patience Jonathan as they attended the Elysee Summit on Peace and Security in Africa. RML particularly commends the news that the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, in an advocacy meeting on sexual violence against women, called for stiff penalties, backed by effective laws, for perpetrators of sexual violence against women. We hope she follows up her words with action now they are back in Nigeria.
