Sad: Ken Saro Wiwa’s daughter, author Noo Saro Wiwa opens up on why she wants nothing more to do with Nigeria

Noo Saro Wiwa, the daughter of Ogoni matyre and environmental activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, has opened up about why she has avoided Nigeria, her father’s country.

The younger Saro Wiwa was recently named among the top 30 most influential women travelers in the world in 2018.

She was named alongside such figures as American actress Angelina Jolie, late US journalist Marie Colvin, and Jordan’s Queen Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

The survey was published by the international magazine Conde Nast Traveler.

Noo Saro Wiwa grew up in Surrey, United Kingdom. She describes Surrey as a bountiful paradise, far removed from the ‘heat and chaos of Nigeria.’

Her book Looking for Transwonderland: Travels in Nigeria, has been described as a brave first foray into travel literature. 

Noo had spent childhood summers in Port-Harcourt on the Niger Delta but after this, she didn’t return for 10 years (except for his funeral and burial), wanting nothing more to do with the country.

Noo’s feelings about Nigeria is a warming to those in power and those aspiring to power to fix Nigeria. 

What kind of country are we building when some citizens feel so unwelcome that they just stay away on self-imposed exile, even during peacetime?

People are being threatened to hand over their ancestral lands at pain of death. Where is justice? Where is fair play?  

Ogoni cleanup, how far about it?

What kind of country do we have where injustice has led to internally displaced people? Where youths are not given jobs or are underemployed, making our youth vulnerable to manipulation to engage in organized violence against the citizenry?

We need to fix our country. And the time starts now!

2019: Don’t allow people intimidate you again – Omotola

“I urge Nigerians not to allow people to intimidate them again. They shouldn’t vote for people because they feel they will win.

Instead, vote for someone you believe in even though the person will get only two votes. We cannot continue to choose the lesser evil; we have to desist from that.”

Star actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde in a chat with Sunday Scoop as reported here.

In other words, despite the recession if you think the Government of the day still has value to give Nigeria, vote for its reelection and vice versa.

Omotola’s call is a call on Nigerians to exercise more critical thinking in their choice of votes.

Omotola also made it clear she doesn’t have s problem with a woman ruling Nigeria.

‘If we don’t enjoy this life, wetin we gain?’ asks Linda Ikeji as she prepares to buy N200 million car for son-king Jayce Jeremi

Blogger Linda Ikeji recently bought her son, Jayce Jeremi a Bentley Mulsane worth N102Million naira. The car landed in Lagos today.

But she is already saving up to buy her king a new super car. I think she is using the car to say a giant ‘F*** Y**’ to people who have been calling her new born son unprintable names!

She wants to fight back, but in Linda Ikeja style, which is to let her money (not her mouth/fingers) do the talking.

She wrote; ‘Next on my mind. Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. Obsessed. #2019loading. If we don’t enjoy this life, wetin we gain? #postandelete.

Don’t hate, don’t troll just tap into the blessing. Meanwhile from next week Sunday, I’ll be meeting young entrepreneurial ladies for brunch or dinner so we can rub minds. 2019 is the year of the woman and I want to help as much as I can.

I hope those young ladies she wants to meet with receive financial empowerment in addition to capacity building.
