Perspectives is a monthly column featuring guest posts from non-Nigerians who follow political and cultural happenings in Nigeria. We hope this will liven up the site by giving you an outside-the-country point-of-view on Nigeria, and hopefully make you see respective issues in a different light. If you would like to contribute to the column, leave us a message.
The bi-weekly column is written by Oge Nnadi who says: “Coming back to Nigeria after many years abroad, I found that the people I met were very eager to explain the different things that had changed since I’d left; almost everyone had a nice long story to tell to help this JJC navigate life at home. I found these stories so interesting that I decided to fictionalize and publish them without expressing (too much) judgment. In this series, I’ll try to recreate what it feels like to hear Nigerians speak about Nigeria from the vantage point of a quasi-outsider.”
This, another bi-weekly column, is written by Oluwafemi Bankole. It is Nigeria through they eyes of a young Nigerian in Nigeria. The column discusses how he and other young people navigate the social, political, and economic landscape of Nigeria
