The Season of Open Letters - Iyabo Obasanjo Writes to Father Olusegun Obasanjo

Posted in: , ,

I found this letter especially noteworthy because we rarely have whistle blowers, and I often ask why not? One of the reasons is our culture of family ties, loyalty due to friendship, and the fear/respect/awe of the young for anyone older. In this letter, Iyabo Obasanjo breaks all the rules. I do not claim to know the veracity of all aspects of this letter, but I found lots of it very insightful on how government is run in Nigeria and the mindset of those who get involved in politics. Read Iyabo's letter in full below...

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.
