My Frontline journal story angle

I finally got over my cold feet (fingers) and managed to come up with an angle I would love to work on.
I will like to write about Nigeria. Specifically I want to focus on the area of elections. I have always been very interested in politics and governance and some important events in my life have been woven around significant dates in Nigeria's electoral history. i hope to write my story from the angle on a young lady growing up in the turbulence of Nigeria's political scene. please let me know what you think.

I would love to read this

This would be fascinating to me- I'll be listening. Just finished Half a Yellow Sun with a book group who found it very interesting to learn more about Nigeria's history and the short history of Biafra.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Warm wishes,

Me, too

The impact of Nigerian politics and elections from your perspective will be fascinating. I imagine a weaving of facts with personal stories and anecdotes. Keep warming those fingers and toes!

What do you think is the way forward? What solutions would you implement if you could? Or even possibly, what solutions are you currently working on or are you seeing being worked on by other women that are benefiting the country as a whole?

Hi Olakitike

This sounds really fascinating.
Have you voted in the elections? Are you interested in entering into politics yourself? What was it like living through the turbulence? How have your experiences shaped your opinions of politics, of your country? Gosh so many questions.
Can't wait to read it.

Its a very good topic

HI Ayo,
This is a very good topic, If you are able to get some politicians and hear their views on why some things are the way the are, I think it will had more colours to your writing. I could help you in this area if you need help

Hey there, It's good that the

Hey there,

It's good that the giant of Africa is finally a democracy. I do know that Nigeria is still struggling with Democracy, I'm interested in the transition from a dictatorship to a democracy. What happened? What should be done to have a better and sustainable democracy?
