I found it funny that a “Ukranian” would write a book in English and title it in Yoruba: Olorun wa! His translation of the title was unconventional (it would have read: There is God); but it was philosophical, reading The Roads of Life. Though Sunday Adelaja was born in Yorubaland …

How far?

How far? That obviously is a phrase peculiar to Nigerians! However, I am writing from another perspective. I heard about an Englishman who served as a missionary in East Africa from 1981 to 1991. He taught English at a local secondary. In 1981, he had an offer to teach in …

My friend!

When I think about divorce, I think of friends! What has it got to do with it? Friends wield unimaginable influence in our lives!
