Tough times, Hideous Conservativism, and That Thing Around Your Neck

Apparently tough times are ahead, according to imnakoya’s March 6th post on the waning of the excess crude fund account. In light of a possibly tenous financial future, solomonsydelle, remains concerned about rumors to replace current Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Charles Soludo, with Yar’adua’s flagrantly unqualified son-in-law, Isa Yuguda.

Tough times call for extraordinary people. Over the past week, many on naijablog, have debated whether Nigerian youth in their “hideous conservatism,” are up to the task of challenging social and political norms. In the closing comments, Jeremy finds that some of the more “hip” Nigerian youth, live and work abroad. I’m sure on that list must be Chimamanda Adichie. Her novel – The Thing Around Your Neck – is forecasted to be the novel to look forward to, according to blogger Loomnie.

While we appreciate the development of the arts and letters by Nigerians in diaspora, we must turn back the spotlight to budding artists, playwrights, and authors in Nigeria who will be featured in the upcoming weeks. Such are highlighted on OreNotes.

On a lighter note, BacktoNaija finds that foreign shoes on Nigerian soil is not a good mix, while the waffarian voices a collective WTF? in response to the incompetence of one Representative Longthroat of the House.

Listen Up!

Nigerians talk.  We all know it – from the office, to the marketplace, to the village and from the city – we Nigerians make it a point to have our voices heard.  While we continue to make use of traditional means of communication, a growing number of Nigerians, young and old, are taking advantage of the blogosphere in order to reach a much larger audience than ever imagined.  The past few years have witnessed the rise and rise of Nigerians bloggers both from within Nigeria and abroad.  We are incredibly proud of this growing movement and wish to support it by presenting the best of what Nigerian bloggers have to offer.

NigeriansTalk is a weekly review of posts written by bloggers of Nigerian extraction, bloggers living in Nigeria and bloggers who blog about Nigeria. NigeriansTalk seeks to cover the wide spectrum of perspectives on various social, political, and personal issues, issues that affect Nigerians at home and abroad.  We would like to recognize those bloggers who through their efforts sustain a much needed dialogue on the state of the nation.  We hope that through our collective voices, we will bring about the future we seek for our country.

In the upcoming weeks, bloggers Olumide of loomnie.com and Nneoma of pyoowata.blogspot.com will select blog posts on and/or by Nigerians on selected topics. Relevant posts on the selected topics will be summarized and presented in a single post per review here on NigeriansTalk. Our posts will be open for discussion and your comments are highly welcome.

We hope to involve as many Nigerian bloggers in this pan-Nigerian blogging project.  If you are interested in becoming a regular contributor for NigeriansTalks.com, please email (Loomnie at loomnie-at-loomnie.com or Nneoma at nnwachuku-at-gmail.com).  Becoming a contributor for NigeriansTalk requires a minimal time commitment as contributors will at most post about once a month.

Nigerians talk. Are we listening?
