"If you twist for anyone, they like the twisted shape of you not you." - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie tells women.

Award winning novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, yesterday had the honour of giving the commencement speech to the class of 2015 at Wellesley College, Massachusetts. She spoke on her favourite topic, Feminism.

We can not always bend the world into the shapes we want but we can try, we can make a concerted and real and true effort. And you are privileged that, because of your education here, you have already been given many of the tools that you will need to try. Always just try. Because you never know. 
And so as you graduate, as you deal with your excitement and your doubts today, I urge you to try and create the world you want to live in. Minister to the world in a way that can change it. Minister radically in a real, active, practical, get your hands dirty way.

Fuel scarcity jeopardizes MTN operations in Nigeria (MTN Nigeria released statement)

First it was electricity, then fuel, and now network is going. It's becoming scary!

Nigeria Radio Station Shuts Down Activities Due To Fuel Scarcity.

The struggle is real!
A reputable radio station in Lagos, Nigeria, shut down it's activities earlier than usual today due to fuel scarcity.  The station normally works 24/7 and due to the fuel scarcity that Nigerians have been facing for some days now, the station which has been working with diesel due to lack of electricity had to shut down earlier than usual.

If this problem is not resolved, the country's economy might be reduced to zero in no time. A country like Nigeria where companies depend on fuel for their operations due to lack of electricity, these very few companies will be forced to shut down if care is not taken. Nigeria stands to lose the very few companies left in it to her neighbouring country.

Mother Teresa set to be canonized to sainthood in 2016 by Pope Francis

Mother Teresa of Calcutta's elevation to sainthood has been set for September 2016, according to top Catholic cleric. Archbishop Salvatore Fisichella was on Tuesday quoted by Italian media as telling municipal officials in Rome that Pope Francis would canonise the nun celebrated for her work with the poor of Calcutta as part of the upcoming Jubilee Year declared by the pontiff.

A Vatican spokesman said however the canonisation had not yet been approved and it was premature to talk of this date having already been fixed.

A celebration of the memory of Teresa has been scheduled for September 5, 2016 as part of the Jubilee programme of events. Fisichella said she would be canonised the day before, on September 4. A canonisation would take planning, as more than 300,000 pilgrims came to Rome for Teresa's beatification ceremony in 2003. Beatification is a first step towards sainthood.
