Life beyond Okada riding, why the North must hear us, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

If our greatest export to Lagos is Okada riders, then there is something to be worried about. The arrest of the Jigawa travellers is condemnable no doubt but beyond that is the fundamental reality that the voyage to Lagos by these guys is embarrassing. Having a trailer-load of young, able-bodied men going to Lagos, not for anything

In war, everyone is a prisoner of captivity, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

Dear poor brethren of Nigerians, in war, everyone is a prisoner of captivity, both the belligerent and the cheerleaders. Keep drumming for war because you feel displaced and dislocated.  There are only two outcomes of war, life or death.

We are all pretenders, I swear…, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

Every day, we post and share beautiful manifestations of other nations 'greatness, we talk about the greatness of others yet don't strive to be like them by doing what they did to be where they are.

Sani Musa’s torturous journey to the Senate, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

When Mohammed Sani Musa’s people called on him to be their voices and represents them at the National Assembly, little did he know he was going to face the horrendous voyage of his professional life.

How I survived my suicide wreck, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

Those who commit suicide are not mentally deranged, they are fulfilled persons but when depression hits them, they succumbed to the dictate of suicide. I have passed through that condition, I came close to towing that path, I was drifting away into the abyss of hopelessness.

Between the ignorant Muslim and his damage to Islam, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

Beards do not make a good Muslim neither does cramming Arabic lines. Islam is one of the beautiful religions but battered by some ignorant adherents especially in Nigeria. These self-appointed 'soldiers of Allah' set the standard for everyone to abide.

Beggars strike…, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

For every occasion, there is a need for someone. No one is absolutely useless in the design of nature. In the end, we all live for ourselves revolving and surviving for ourselves. You are nobody until there is somebody above and below you,

Lero’s kiss of time and the election dance, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

She held me by the arms as we walked through the tiny path that led to the odambe stream. You could hear the birds chirped in sensual symphonies. The sky joined in agreement as it replaced the hitting sun with soothing sunset. It was a calm atmosphere, my heart raced in repeated uncoordinated beats as we walked side by side.

Emotional Intelligence, national conflict and the Odekunle Model…, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice

During one of his sociology classes in Ahamdu Bello University, Zaria, Prof. Femi Odekunle accosted a female student all clad in niqab-a kind of covering used by Muslim women that left unexposed all their body including the face.

Buhari and the Assemblymen; between accountability and frustration, by Abdullahi Haruna Haruspice
