The King has Come!

I went to bed early hours of this morning amidst all the talks about the day. I was not particularly into the whole preparations. As far as I was concerned, it was just another day doing what I would normally have done on a day when there is a public holiday. Though, it seems like I have over grown buying new clothes and new shoes for the day, I was sure going to put on a new wear.

VIRGINITY TEST: A Violation on the Fundamental Rights of Women and Girls

Some days back, we celebrated the human rights day. I wrote an article to call our attention to this and to enlighten us on our rights (see My Voice Counts). The essence is to let us know our rights, protect and defend them, most especially the women in the society. Surprising therefore, on the 10th of December, 2012, the rights of some female students in a secondary school in Ogun state was violated by their principal. It was disappointing though, that the accused violator of their rights is not just a learned or an elderly person, but female.

One of the problems facing Africa today is extreme poverty which stems out of a number of factors. In fact, it is the first goal of the Millennium Development Goals; Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.  While some have argued that the target date is unrealistic, I would like to point out that the goal says, eradicating extreme poverty. This means that, we may not be able to completely wipe off poverty in 2015 or even extreme poverty for that matter. But, with concerted efforts, we can definitely reduce the ratio.

Music is food to the soul. It is like a spirit; you listen to some and it makes you happy while you listen to others and tears just may drop off your eyes. The beat, the sound, all the technicalities, I know little about but the lyrics is what I particularly take interest in. May be that is why I relate better to RnB. Songs that make me just think in whatever direction. Thus, today’s post is inspired by music.

I woke up this morning, grateful to God for the gift of life, friends and family but more importantly, for the opportunity to be able to exercise my rights in the society. I can imagine the mumbling and grumbling at the last part of this statement but really, I went to worship God as I deem fit yesterday with no worries; I belong to associations that please me without fear or prejudice; as a diplomat in the making, I analyse political situations freely on the social media and should the elections come around, I have the right to vote. So, it really isn’t that bad because my voice counts. It is not perfect but in some regions, the people especially the youths cannot boast of the ability to exercise any of their rights as they live in fear, fear of the unknown.

I was in shock and my heart, broken. Tears filled my eyes but I tried to stay strong. I wished so hard that I had some kind of magical powers to make things work out the way it should. The wailing, sleepless nights, emotional crisis, the trauma, the pain, agony, anguish*whew*. Please, it had to be a dream but you know what? It is not. That woman, that girl is going through all of that. So, am no longer shocked but heart broken yet staying strong for her.

Growing  up, I had a very close friend who had the sickle cell anaemia. She was such a free spirited one and would laugh at all your jokes, worry about your well being, show you love and she was so kind at heart. I remember when my brother and I may have left the compound which my mum wasn’t so cool with, my friend would come to my mum and beg on our behalf. She would say, “mummy, I know you didn’t want them to leave the house but they did. Please, don’t beat them because they are my friends but you can punish them”. I love and miss that girl. I should try and contact her again.


Today (5th of December, 2012) is the United Nations (UN) International Volunteer Day. It is a day set aside for volunteers to make visible their contributions to social and economic development. The UN places more emphasis on contributions geared towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The world celebrated World AIDS day on the 1st of December. Many of us may not have known or may have known but did not take any particular interest in it. After all, we do not have the syndrome and do not wish to have it (some may say). This is a wrong mentality as it affects each and everyone of us because the spread of the disease affects development. Thus, it is our responsibility to get informed.

SOCIOTECTONIC - What it means...

Coming up with a name for the blog was such a task. Seyi and my best friend, Etimbuk, came up with so many lovely names (thanks guys!) which together inspired the search and ultimately my find of the name, Sociotectonic.

N so SOCIOTECTONIC is born...........

Sociotectonic was born out of an inspiration from a friend, Seyi .

I was coming back from the launch of an event and whilst chatting with Seyi, I said to him, I love what I do. And he said to me;  have you considered blogging about these events”? I almost threw it out of the window but then, I realised that it would be a perfect opportunity to inspire other people who love to do social work as well as a platform to give voice to social workers.
