‘Jagaban Borgu’, as he is fundly called, The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Sunday through a speech issued by his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, urged Nigerians to not only celebrate the Democracy day as another kind of holiday but too also thrive to uphold its principles.
“keep and nurture democracy, not for the sake of democracy but for the sake of the country”, a line in the statement reads.
He went further to stress that “Democracy Day and our commemoration of it must be more than an empty ritual. It must add up to more than another reason to have another holiday.
“We, as a people, choose democracy as our preferred form of governance not because it would be easy to achieve or to hold even once we have it. We choose democracy because history has taught us that the welfare of the people is best and perhaps only secured by government responsive and accountable to the people. This can only be democracy.

To lead is to conquer;
Verily, the Masters are Doctoring the philosophy.
So firm they stand their reign.
Their crafty-trickish spears spare no one.
Sadly, the quest to conquer
Have misplaced their desire to lead.
In the lead to conquer,
They were favored by your manipulative thumbs.
Those favors have indexed them into various positions of honor.
But like forgotten stories,
The sights of their middle fingers flaunted at you with pride
Is more than bizarre.
The new facets have them pitched against one another;
And the innocent ‘you’ will prolly be the mercenary.
You had thought they would actually fight for your course.
Maliciously, the reverse is the case.
Sorry, the Change agenda is on hold;
We have a bigger Chase to mould.
To lead requires strength, wisdom and desire.
To conquer; just own the masses.
They are readied instruments with little or no knowlege about the rivalry.
For as long as you have them,
Your rivals’ best tactics can only take them as far as a lid behind lead.
Surely, To lead is to conquer…
Traditionally, Enwan is ruled and governed by a king. Like the yoruba and bini kingdom, Enwan operates an Obaship system of governance. As a paramount ruler, Odafe is the title given to the king of Enwan. He serves as the head of the clan. So far, as at the time of this research, they have successfully had fourteen (14) Odafe.
Due to the fact that the kingship title isn’t completely hereditary, every kindred in Enwan has the right to the Odafeship. As a matter of fact, it rotates, in cycle, around every of the nineteen kindred of the 3 quarters. For instance, it will be the turn of Imiezua quarters if it has rotated every of the 4 kindred in Imiezakhor quarters. Then it will rotate all 8 kindreds in Imiezua before it becomes Imievanne’s turn to rotate. Thus, everyone is entitled to the throne. Though, a candidate must be popular, free from diseases; physical deformity and crime to be eligible. On the authority of the eldest man in the appropriate ruling house, a suitable candidate will therefore be chosen via consensus. This is, however, the summary of the declaration of customary law regulating succession to traditional ruler title under the executive council of the then Bendel state of Nigeria relating to Enwan. As at the time of the research, the new Odafe of Enwan, in person of Chief O.C. Daudu, has not been coronated as the case of his rightful succession is being challenged by another man from his kindred in court. We will do a little more research to know if he has now been crowned. But he has been actively up and doing, serving for the betterment of the community.
Mode of Dressing among Enwan People.
The traditional mode of dressing is very similar to that of the Yorubas. In the older days of the Enwan community, before the advent of European civilization, many people will prefer to use their native attires. However, present day outfits in the community include shorts, trousers, blouse and wrappers, etc.
Burial Rites in Enwan Land
As the highest title which man will attain after gathering every other thing on earth, death is inevitable. Everyone is as equal as one another in the eyes of death. When an elderly person dies, information will be sent to the relations in other part of the town so as to commence burial rites. However, Continue reading →
Although I had expected this to happen but am only surprise as to why it took this long to happen. It’s been over a month the famous OAP, Toke Makinwa, wrote a book about her ascension to the limelight. The book since its launch in November has continued to generate diverse opinions from readers. The book touches major asoects of her marriage life with her divorced husband, Maje Ayida. Some have criticised her on the basis that she over exaggerated her themes by portraying Maje to be a bully, cheater and inconsiderate husband. Of course some have also backed her claims and has praise her for her diplomatic way of resolving the issue.
However, as this story boils, I had expected the attacked villain in this whole story, Maje to come out to either validate or debunkContinue reading →
