The Art of Rethinking
Søren Kierkegaard, Danish Philosopher, couldn't have put it better. It is outrageous to maintain rigid views
and expect new results. As simplistic as this may sound, this has been the dilemma of slow developing
countries, many of which can be found on the African continent. Essentially, it is important to start thinking
afresh in order to realize fresh results. This is the purpose of this page; to revisit fairly well-known and,
perhaps, not so well-known topics and provoke renewed thinking on the issues they address. Most of the
topics will focus on Africa, some on Nigeria, while others will deal with subjects that are globally significant.
The views here are mine. I respect opposing views as long as they are delivered respectfully and without bias.
The purpose here is not to engender conflict but to facilitate constructive thinking and dialogue, such that
even disagreements will ultimately lead to adjustments in our ideas and a broadening of our perceptions for
the sake of meaningful transformation.
