Domestic violence is an under reported crime in Nigeria, almost accepted as norm. Some men feel it's their right, some feel it's always the women who bring out the beast in them, while others will readily admit its a way of stamping their authority in the home. Sadly, many don't see anything wrong with beating their wives. How sad! Yes, am aware there are women who beat up their husbands, but those are in the minority and this piece ain't about them. The most guilty perpetrators are usually men and the victims are mostly their wives and sometimes their children too.

Article written by Charly Boy. Enjoy bleow...
The second edition of The Oguta Carnival, aptly tagged "The Exodus" may have come and gone but left an indelible mark on my people's conscience. More than a few mediocre minds never thought it was possible to repeat the stunt of 2013 carnival, but thank God 2014 was even much better and bigger than the median edition. You can now start to OMG imagine what The 2015 edition will be like, God keeping us all alive.
Like a ship without a captain, our cherished OBODOGIRIGIRI, our little London was drifting away to undeserved destination. An ugly scenario where rancour, bitterness, animosity, selfish discrimination, idiosyncrasies have become the order of the day which has continued to undermine the development of Oguta. Tufiakwa. Our place of pride lost. Our cultural heritage, educational reputation, brotherly love for one another all gone with the wind. Those inherent qualities in which our sister towns used to admire us for eluded us. We have equally been outweighed in the alter of social-economic and political advancements.
What do we bloody have? NOTHING. No representation in government or anywhere for that matter. NOTHING. With a pocket of blessed people in Ameshi, we have continued to remain an eye sour of our past prestige. Things fall Apart.
Yet as an opportunity once again presents itself for us to win back our pride, our groove and our brotherly love for one another, what do we do? we again want to fuck it up, Mbanu! As per today, Oguta Carnival is the only thing Ameshi has going for her. It is becoming the only thing my people can look forward to every year, wether you are in Europe, America or Asia. It will become the only thing that can unite my people. The Carnival, for those who have eyes is a way of putting OBODOGIRIGIRI on the tourism map in Nigeria, which will foster development, commerce, tourism, etc etc. When commerce is activated, poverty will reduce, the youths who are hard working will see something to positively engage their mind. The pepper seller will sell. Gangsterism will be kept at bay. Why can't some Assholes see this. This isn't rocket science, it is not algebra or chemistry. How can we have people who went to school yet so uneducated. You will be surprised that their are people who are so small minded to the point that they will openly clam that The Patriots agenda is an Umudei agenda. Damn! I can understand the poor, hungry and angry ordinary people, not the few God has blessed, who shy away from coming together to make our small London a place of Pride. If some people are intimidated because The brand CharlyBoy is involved, why can't they start their own. It may not be Carnival, but whatever that can enhance the community. No where e easyooooo.
My people, my brothers and sisters, Umu Ameshi, It is time we change our lackadaisical, myopic, bad belle, and pull him Down syndrome that has taken over Ameshi. It is time we become more proactive to what's happening in our town. We must give our youths hope because, at the core of this problem is unemployment, poverty and hopelessness. I don't blame the poor, how can they think straight on an empty stomach. I am peed off with those who should know yet pretend not to know. It is time we wake up and face the challenge of fixing our town dropping all these stupid nonsensical ego tripping. Let the few who can see the bigger picture please please please, try and come together because the survival and restoration of Obodogirigiri lies in the hands of the exceptional few. Biko.
As for me, Area Fada. Am already on this ship called The Patriots, there is nothing anybody can do about that, like it or not. I think my antecedent has proven that for whatever I believe in; for any cause I am passionate about, that I will forge through the challenges to see the cause achieved! I always win, even though I understand I can't win them All. I plan to bring all I have to bear in seeing Oguta blossom again, even if a few bad Belles are busy scrutinising my purpose and intent, na for their pocket. I no send una. Yesoooo! I am an apostle of public order enshrined in transparency, probity and accountability, no be my papa born me? no matter how the Brand's Image has fooled narrow minded Naijas. Haters shouldn't waste their time with this silly hating game! Because you no see me, I no see you.

For starters, don't pick up the dictionary to lookup ‘Mumugiousity’, I coined it myself but you go soon grab weytin I wan yarn.
As I approach this topic I want to be careful so readers don't get the whole essence of this write up, twisted. E no dey hard some people. Religion is a touchy subject for a lot of people and in my household it is generally not considered "polite conversation."
