LEADERSHIP Conversation Series: “Asking Youths To Vote Is Waste Of Time”

LEADERSHIP Conversation Series: “Asking Youths To Vote Is Waste Of Time”

By Babafemi A. Badejo

A general deception pervades the Nigerian landscape: The much talked about return of Nigeria to democracy in 1999 under a constitution promulgated by the military in that year. Professional politicians, their hangers-on, uninformed public at large and worse still, those in the academia and the media, perpetrate this deception. This “noble lie” (apologies to Plato) is pushed further by aspiring politicians to castigate the Nigerian youths as not doing enough by coming out in large numbers to install a President from amongst one of them. The emphasis is on the ballot box that is normally rigged in Nigeria.

Pathway Conversation Series: Dancing Around Truth Won’t Get Us Far. By Babafemi A. Badejo

Pathway Conversation Series: Dancing Around Truth Won’t Get Us Far
By Babafemi A. Badejo

Nigeria has struggled to achieve nationhood since its precarious inception. Its primary constituents have no affinities with each other. In fact, these constituents were independent, self-determined groups prior to amalgamation.
This reality was adequately recognized by the British handed down national anthem that was jettisoned in 1978 for the current one. That historical anthem can be used to assess Nigeria as a nation after 60 years. Its first stanza stated: “Though tribes and tongue may differ, in brotherhood we stand”.

6th Matriculation Ceremony of Chrisland University and the tortuous Experience along Eternally Rehabilitated Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

Babafemi A. Badejo, Ph.D

As the 2020 lockdown canceled my lined up international speaking engagements to Addis Ababa in March, South Africa in April and the US in April and September, it dawned on me that post lockdown would be a different situation: a new normal of increased online living. It became necessary to reinvent my post-UN life plans. I had earlier written on planning for retirement in what I titled “Retirement Plan Parts I&II” in 2017 upon my retirement from the United Nations.  Knowledge sharing is something I have always enjoyed, so I engaged in this under the auspices of Yintab Strategy Consults (YSC).

The Fox and the Cock in Contemporary Nigeria

The Fox and the Cock in Contemporary Nigeria

Babafemi A. Badejo, Ph.D

The space between the two buildings within a compound where I grew up as a child at Ijebu-Ode was our play area. Some football and running around during the day and knowledge sharing spot in the evening. It was where we learnt critical thinking through Yoruba stories and proverbs. Without knowing it, as children, we were learning Yoruba philosophy and world outlook in a play mode. Out of interest, an older man shared different stories. His stories were more exciting because we participated as he got us to sing songs that accompanied the narratives. At the end of each story he asked all the children what lessons could be learnt. I learnt about the fox and the cock during one of these knowledge sessions.
