Barely one week after he reportedly snubbed Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi when they met at a function, the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has allegedly released bombshell, saying Lagos is not part of Yoruba land.
We gathered that a statement reportedly emanated from Akiolu’s palace, detailed the historical background of Lagos and why it should not be regarded as part of Yoruba land.
The purported statement read: “Coming from the palace, with what I was told by my late paternal grandmother who is a descendant of Oba Ovonramwen Nogbaisi and also reading from factual Historical books, let me share this Knowledge with you all on Eko/Lagos.
Don’t ignore this jam. You will sure love it. Enjoy!! 🔥🔥🔥

Higher education has become a problem for us in Nigeria, indeed in Africa: thinking outside the box is not part of the accepted academic framework and mental orientation. It is not one of the goals of the syllabus. To complicate matters the level of in-breeding within the system greatly stultifies profound thinking. Garbage in garbage out has become more poignant in this age of the ubiquitous computer and computerisation.
Ironically the social and political challenges which we currently confront in our nation have missed the sight of the educational system. This is at all levels. How then can a problem as a fundamental successfully confront a challenge and alter the course of things? How can an institution or a process which has become a problem champion the cause of alternative thinking? This contradiction stares us every day in the face as we stand before undergraduates pontifically pouring out thoughts and ideas from fundamental positions which we did not develop ab initio.
Thinking within the box! Outside the box is a territory the curriculum has not supported or created room for. Often students say to themselves ‘let me give the lecturer what he wants, what he gave us in class, or in his lecture. If you give him something else, you will fail’. Let us interrogate this for a minute. What it means is that the student is barred from original thinking, the student as respondent is not allowed to wander from the curriculum. It also means that the teacher is locked in time and space; this, if it is true that the teacher has created the impression that outside the box is a crime.
