Nation of Cannibals and Savages

So my wife has been complaining for sometime about how she's not very impressed with our bloggers these days. A large chunk of the 'news' they blog about is negative. Down right gory. Today it's about the rape of an underage girl, tomorrow it's about the beheading of a young man with a promising future. Police shooting innocent civilians now and soldiers brutalising cadets the next moment. Kilode? She asked me. It's an overload of negative news. Is that really all that's going on?

10 Things Naija Teens Should Care About In 2016

1. The slump in oil prices: Oil prices have fallen so low since the record highs witnessed in the past few years. It’s almost as if the prices are on a mission to break new records in 2016 only this time in the opposite direction. Nigeria, being a largely mono-crop economy dependent on proceeds it makes from crude oil sales has had its economy hit hard by this slump in prices. The problem is going to affect everything. I’m sure you have heard your parents lament the problem. The problem doesn’t seem to be going away quick and so families will have to re-strategize in a bid to stay afloat in what are no doubt hard times while we await the measures to be taken by our government to diversify our economy.
