The road less travelled.

This week’s post marks the first full month that I started this blog and also the first guest post – to read the guest post by Abdulhafeez Babatunde Siyanbola, currently a doctoral student in the Department of Industrial Design at Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria, you can click on “The challenges of regulating the Nigerian education system.” and if you would like to read this heartfelt message from me to you to the end, then, I’ve put the link to the guest post at the end of this message.

My first post went live on 25th of December 2016 and since then I’ve tried as much as possible to make it a weekly post. In-between the first post on the politics of tertiary education admission policy in Nigeria and today’s post, I have written on issues like: sports and reading; the problem of out-of-school children in Nigeria ; the use of social media; and the ever growing rhetoric of skills based education amongst politicians in Nigeria in the era of post-truths and alternative facts.

I have to say that I am humbled and grateful that people have found my posts worthy of their time and to this end, I would like to say a big thank you. A month as a pseudo writer is a very short period to know what the future holds, but at the same time, it has given me enough impetus to write more and hopefully, engage more and better with the soul of this site – the readers. Because without you reading my posts then it would have just been worthy of me to have kept a personal diary for family and friends. So, I appreciate your stopping by in this era of digital distraction to consider my blog to be worthy of the most precious and most valuable asset in life – time.

Whilst, I’m very sure that there are bound to be bumpy roads along the way and the occasional instances of going down the route of the road less travelled; I hope whatever differences in opinions, views or positions we may have or take, we will probably have more in common, as far as addressing most of society’s challenging issues are concerned.

This blog is an open book (YouTube) and if you think you have some opinions, views or positions that you think are either for or against those expressed on this blog and are worth sharing with the rest of us; kindly get in touch with and I’ll be more than willing to publish your article – in as much as the article is in line with the editorial rules and objectives of this blog. And if you think getting in touch is a lot of faffing about for you, then, kindly drop your comment/s in the comments section that can be found at the end of each post.

And do not forget to subscribe for a monthly newsletter from this blog – to be sent out every last Sunday of the month – and you’ll not be inundated with a plethora of e-mails, that is, I’ll not overburden your already busy inbox and I’ll not spam you.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      I use WordPress and the layout has more to do with personal decisions and the company that designed the site – whose name you’ll find at the footer of the homepage ‘Salespager’. Hope that helps? Cheers for stopping by on my blog and your comment is much appreciated.
