You've taken a unique approach in looking at an issue that appears to be of increasing concern. Drawing on international examples, especially the timely one of Catalonia, gives your article a wider scope that makes your arguments more persuasive. It's also inspiring to read your view that improved quality of life rather than political ideology is the real issue. "A progressive system is the answer", indeed! In all, you've taken a commendably constructive approach, especially with your statement that the government "has the complete knowledge" of what should be done. This is a refreshingly positive view amid negative voices. - Patricia Perkel, Editor, Commonwealth Correspondent.

The article discusses a much undestimated cause of the Nigeria problem through the context of a child's formative years. In a country of crisis, everyone looks for someone to blame. The government is often scape-goated, what about the people? What is their fault? "The writing style is amazing. By using the metaphor of a child, you are able to speak to serious issues from an unusual point of view. The almost lyrical language makes harsh facts more palatable, and lets the reader think of the information in a manner that gives universal application. The messages you have for Nigerian society, such as "we are not holding ourselves culpable enough", apply equally to citizens in many countries, which gives this article broad appeal. In all this is a highly readable, entertaining and thought-provoking article." - Pat Perkel, Editor, Commonwealth Correspondent.

Mars has become central to technological advancements in the twenty first century and the world of science is currently painstakingly working round-the-clock to demystify Mars. But it should be of note that the phrase "world of science" can be monopolized by the Americas, Europe and Asia. Where is Africa? When will Africa begin its journey to Mars? The article discusses the prospects of Africa's membership in the world of science and technology. It delineates the monumetous importance of an innovative Africa and the consequences of a not-based-on-practical curriculum in various tertiary institutions.

The Nigerian State is in a complete model of a failed state owning to the abdication of responsibilities from every strata of the society. This article provides a thorough analysis of the remissness that grounds the progress of the nation and answers to the question on which class is responsible for the rejuvenation of the Nigerian state - the old or the new?
