Author Bio

The African Reformer
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

In the long list of trite and tragic words some true saints, scholars and sages maybe tired and ashamed of, reformation, change and freedom dominate and reign. Having remorselessly and frequently fulfilled their semantic and syntactic emptiness in dismal socio-economic and political literature of collective ignorance, war, hunger, diseases, death, and yet, renewed pledges of tacit but sure directionlessness in the continence haunted continent of Africa, the eminent fraud, nay jazziness of these practically hackneyed words cater to scholars' loss accruable from the august guts of their undisguisable disgust towards them......[more]

nigeria (1K)Nigeria Shall Not Dis-integrate
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Superbly super social sense teaches that ceaseless crises arise when leaders increasingly acquire and exercise and exact the skills that decrease a nation's increase. Seek the seizure of the arising perditive pieces with strict or diplomatic bliss to foster peace in a billion times without rearranging the causative indices stationed along the crises' axis and you increase the nation's headache, which the toxic peace poisons and buries in eternal miseries.....[more]

My 2006 Agenda SAC
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Throughout the first half of 2006, with strictly inevitable intellectual and birth-remembrance outpours {for every fourteenth of February is my birthday!}, I glued my mouth to speechlessness at and replaced my noble elocution with silence at and at the twenty eight electronic for a I belong, either as a stake holder or ordinary member, to weather the storms that mortally attempted to shake my humane purpose to death.....[more]

By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Now in this column-class of bondless audience, I humbly introduce, as well as explain a new word, which coming linguists and lexicographers, philosophers and social scientists, etc., by virtue of their academic interest, may be interested in, and this is "Babangidaism".....[more]

Before The Year Ends
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

"The sum of all sums is eternity."

With the tacit approval of mortals for whom this year represents disaster and vast tears, against the whishy preferences of destroyables whose fortune arrived in the cloning cyclone of this moment's best, the year two thousand and five seems to have sealed its resolve to die; and like other years before it, it shall connect the Olympian coil of careful calendering eternity taints with triviality.....[more]

Sosoliso, Our Christmas Sorrow
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

"There are only three events in a man's life; birth, life and death; He is not conscious of being born, he dies in pain, and he forgets to live."
--------Jean de La Bruyere

Tears and fear seal this discovery: In any society where usurping pundits and evil fashioners are plaudits pushers and rulers, pain precedes pain and sorrow succeeds sorrow. Life becomes a bliss belabored by fellows. Moral bane, a polyphonic poetry-portion dubiously demarcated by destroyables' decent indecency.....[more]

obasanjo (2K)Letter to President Olusegun Obasanjo
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Silence, like treachery, is wickedness. Inaction is tall treason against reason. What we support or frown against, we must learn to say and aid with principled volubility and decisiveness. The reward is neither glory, nor the punishment grave. It is clean conscience which no wealth commensurate.....[more]

Collective Actions: More Global Opinion Media For Earthlings
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi.

Two months ago {this is November 2005}, in a specific moment of mannered meditation targeting man's collective good and glory, the billions of cells in my biological abode x-rayed the scanned outcome of my copious philosophical reflections, objectively projecting that if some distance-touching, humanity-aimed media, as global opinion outlets, owned and run by reasonable writers,....[more]

Nigeria's Wickedest Weekend of Death
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

It does not have to be the most excruciating in the gory history of human adversity, whatever hits a nation so hard that a collection of condolences queue up at her psycho-spiritual door step unfortunately qualifies as the wickedest, and entitles citizens the philosophical instinct of profiting from the promising pains of such huge tragedy.....[more]

The Quamire of the Past, the Promise of the Future
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

This discloses a deserving discredit to words and silence, actions and inactions tailored towards our ruin as a race: our proper anticipation in the noble place of creation dishonour-worthy shenanighans masquerading as path-makers dedicatedly blockade with the diabolical objectives of their self-suturing strives.....[more]

Committee On Encyclopedia Africana {CEA}
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

June 2005, my best teacher, Professor Okey Ndibe bought me a copy of Envcyclopedia Britanica on request.Years before then, I had scruffled through the resourceful intellectual document and its rich American variant and always wished that the privilege to own a copy was born. Within four weeks of voracious reading, I had defeated the first plan of browsing through.....[more]

nigeria (3K)Ultimate Sources of Oppression in Nigeria
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Judging objectively from the series of laws thousands of truly elected, self-appointed, and infamously imposed Legislators from quarters of programmed opprobrium (Legislators who as Mora and social prisoners, were nominated, elected, and sworn-in by fellow prisoners!), and members of the crime-coloured Nigerian executive had drafted and endorsed for our well-being as a people, one sees mental sickness in those lineages of thinking and convictions that hatched them......[more]

Ruin-Ridden Religiosity
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

We, as rich renegades, recommend ruinous relegation as the relevance of things not ours, and disregard people not related to our precious beliefs and convictions. We allow prejudices, never reason, to determine our judgment of events and people......[more]

Samaformist Redefinitions
By Mankind Olawale Oyewumi

Good deeds are dearer than their doers; the wise honor heroism, not the heroes. Villains are less detestable than villainy; wisdom condemns evil, not their roguish inventors.......[more]
