Such a great honour to write the foreword to this new edition of Octavia E. Butler's Kindred. I love this novel so much. You have to read Butler's work if you haven't, her writing is amazing. .

For the president to sit in London and characterise us as lazy is incredibly disingenuous, for goodness sake, Àjàlá ta n nà ọ́? Ẹ̀yin náà kọ́?! Anyway, lazy Nigerian youth that I am, I off to hit my word count goal for today.

Let’s not even get into what your life is like if you fall ill, what your chances are if your parents can’t afford private primary and secondary education or what could have become of you while you were plying any of the terrible roads in this country.

You make it out of Uni anyway then suffer through NYSC on the rubbish pay, but you gats serve your country abi? Finish NYSC, no job, hustle in every way possible just to stay alive or get a job and still double your hustle because the pay is nonsense.

You get into the University and live in hostels that could double as pigsties, work in labs with ancient equipment, get sexually harassed by your lecturers, spend 4+x years because Unis can be shut down at any time.

In spite of all the wahala of Nigeria, most young people just keep moving even though there’s no system to support their dreams and aspirations. You pass JAMB but chill at home for years because the Universities are overpopulated.

Mini thread on this business because eskiss sir, what on earth do you mean? ANY young Nigerian who succeeds at anything has done it in spite of the several ways this has failed her/him. Argue with ASUU strikes and your generators please.
