📍The last few months have been very difficult and truamatic times for all progressive men and women in Nigeria. And I'm not talking about those who wear the toga of retrogressive elements in Nigeria but claim to be progressives. I am talking about those who are genuine progressives and who live by its ideals.  📍Our camp had been divided and polarised. There was tension and anxiety. Blood pressures were raised.

I also know that you are laughing: Laughing at all those people; men and women, who abuse their spouses and pass their children through a living hell. 💙Just as Christians mark the resurrection of Jesus today, I remember how you rose from the dead, a day after you died. A lot has happened since your resurrection, Osinachi.  💜There's now more awareness and exposure, regarding spousal abuse in our nation. Suddenly, the stigma of separation, divorce and being single, is now on the front burner and being bravely discussed and tackled. 💙Some Men are stepping up and refusing to be labelled irresponsible for saying "Enough". Some women too, are refusing to stand by and watch their lives fritter away. They all know that there's no shame in being happy.  EVERYONE DESERVES TO BE HAPPY.  💜Some people have actually left their abusive relationships and wondering what took them this long, while thanking you for opening their eyes of unders
