Relaxing your hair is like being in prison. You’re caged in. Your hair rules you. You didn’t go running with Curt today because you don’t want to sweat out this straightness. You’re always battling to make your hair do what it wasn’t meant to do. – Americanah
Hey guys I am so excited! Chimamanda’s Americanah won the “ONE BOOK ONE NEW YORK PROGRAMME”.The One Book, One New York is the largest community reading program in the USA, bringing together book-loving New Yorkers to read the same book at the same time. The program was launched in February 2017 with quintessential New York flair, featuring five celebrities who each urged New Yorkers to vote for one of five award-winning books. Ultimately, the votes were tallied and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah was selected as the book all New Yorkers will read together.
What do you do when you feel lost? Do you just stand at the spot where you have found yourself? Do you go back from where you came? or do you just move forward?
I am this point in my life where I feel completely lost. I do not know if it is as a result of my moving to Lagos- a city that is terrifying, tiring and terrible at the same time. I also do not know if it is as a result of not loving something I thought I always needed. Continue reading “What Do You Do When You Feel Lost?”→
I am interested in a lot of legal things. Litigation isn’t one of them. I believe there is so much one can do with a law degree. This rigid litigation goal is quite choking.
I am fascinated with International law, Energy and Environmental law and a little bit of Taxation and Revenue. I think there is so much that we can do in those regards.
Picking a topic for my project was quite stressful. I thought about a lot of things and asked senior friends for help. Then one evening, I was in the sitting room watching the evening news and VIOLA! The inspiration to write about the Paris Climate Change Agreement came.
With the help of a lecturer and a supervisor I was able to coin out the perfect topic.
I have always loved Environmental law. Growing up, my dad had these video cassettes of the animal world and planet. He would make us watch and tell us intersting stories. Sometimes, my dad would go outside and just gaze at the stars.
“God is beautiful” he would say.
So I guess it was natural for me to waltz in and register for Environmental law as an elective in my 400level. I would go on to become the VICE PRESIDENT OF THE CLEAN EARTH SOCIETY, CLASS OF 2016.
I’m actually sad that President Trump thinks Climate Change is a hoarse. Climate change is real and the faster we work towards saving our planet, the better for us all.
Myron Ebell, who took charge of Mr Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) transition team, said the President was determined to undo policies pushed by Barack Obama to restrict greenhouse gas emissions.
He said the US would “clearly change its course on climate policy” under the new administration and claimed Mr Trump was “pretty clear that the problem or the crisis has been overblown and overstated”.
If the US pulls out, the developing countries would bear the grunt and the deal might end up failing completely.
On the 12th of December 2015, 195 countries reached an agagreement by gathering in Paris to discuss a possible new global agreement on climate change, aimed at reducing global gas emissions and thus avoiding the threat of dangerous climate change.
The aim of my work was to examine the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement and its implication for Nigeria. The work also disussed key elements of the agreement, the legal status of the agreement and the structure of the agreement. The implications for the different sectors in Nigeria were critically discussed and recommendations were given.
Climate change is one of the environmental challenges of the 21st century. And so there is need for legal obligations to further ensure compliance of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. In conclusion, the future of climate change and the aim of the Paris Climate Change Agreement will all depend upon the legal approach taken by the Nigerian government. Having stricter measures and taking a legal approach while following the recommendations will reduce the impacts of climate change in Nigeria.
I wonder what the future holds for us. The burden is on the government to prioritize on investments that will make good use of the Paris Agreement Framework. Example, creating awareness on the use of solar panels.
Ndi kem? My people? Kedu? You know that time between Christmas and New Year where you don’t know what day it is, who you are or what you are meant to be doing??? I keep asking my siblings is today 25th or 26th? 29th or 30th? Sigh.
Beautiful people, It’s been a while. Merry Christmas!
Forgive my absence. I have been trying to get my life together; from graduation to a tax summer school and to preparations for a job interview. I’ll explain with loads of pictures.
I hope you all are well? I have not been able to post anything on my blog just because I graduate from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, in a month’s time. December 1st to be specific. I have exams coming up and I have been reading for my finals. I’ll be back and better.
