OPINION

By Adeolu Ademoyo

Depending on the context, death and illness are two occurrences, which are often difficult to write and talk about. This broad challenge is made more complicated in a contemporary African context-in this case Nigerian context- that is disposed to irrationality. The belief is: Do Not Speak Ill of The Dead and The Ill.

While there is some deep ethical meaning to the thought that we should not speak ill of the ill and the dead, our irrational context driven by sentiments and ethnic politics will often make us lose the high moral implication of such thought. The high ground of ethics and spirituality enjoin us not to speak ill of the dead and the ill not because the moral status or otherwise of the ill and the dead when they were alive, hale and hearty. On the contrary, we are enjoined not to speak ill because they may not have the mortal space and time like us-who is yet to answer the final call- to defend themselves. read more

Expanding the search for oil is necessary to pay for the damage caused by climate change, the Governor of Alaska has told the BBC.

The state is suffering significant climate impacts from rising seas forcing the relocation of remote villages.

Governor Bill Walker says that coping with these changes is hugely expensive.

He wants to “urgently” drill in the protected lands of the Arctic National Wilderness Refuge to fund them.

Alaska has been severely hit by the dramatic drop in the price of oil over the past two years. read more
