I recently learnt that forced marriages are on the rise in Nigeria especially in the northern part of the country.
It has gotten worse to the extent were young girls and ladies are held hostages in their own homes by their own relatives which brings me to the case of Fatimah Shuabu Liman age 20 and Talatu Liman 21. Both victims were brutally beaten and held against their will for as long as 3 months before their cases was brought to the notice of Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA). Statistics shows that, large percentage of forced marriages occur within the Muslim community.
Another case occurred sometime in January or February which I also read in Punch; A man originally from Niger but has been residing for a while here in Nigeria with his two daughters age 18 and 12; then out of the bloom, he told them they will be getting married in about a months time; to their amazement and those of the people living around them; a marriage ceremony was conducted in the presence of their fathers family and their suitors without their having a say and then bundled off to their grooms houses in Badagry and Ajah. It should be noted that the grooms where not present at their wedding and that both of them live in a room apartment.
The question now is why do some parents force their children into marriage? According to the father of the two girls, he gave them out to marriage because he could not afford to send them to school anymore; secondly,, to avoid letting them get pregnant by neighborhood guys which I will narrow down to poverty but in his case I would say he had other reasons because both grooms are financially in the same category he is which is poor. But in Fatimah and Talatu’s case I will call it greed.

Where are we heading to in Nigeria? I don’t know, I don’t know how such brutality could be done to a young man of 25 by an agency of the state which is suppose to protect lives and property within the society.
In a society govern by laws, in a state under the umbrella of the constitution which proclaims that nobody is above the law; then something must be done to give succor to Ojo Jimoh, a furniture apprentice who was mistakenly arrested as an armed robber in 1995 and thus spent ten years of his life in prison without trial. No wonder Nigeria lost out on the recent ICC election in New York; who would want a country with a Bad human right record on ICC council seat.

So many of us visualise so many DREAMS, we hope to actualize these DREAMS by shaping the world that we are in in order to be a reputable representative of the world we find ourselves.
Some DREAMS are mere visuals of our imaginations while some could be an ordinary fragments of one’s perception; we hope to fight for the BEST, hoping to achieve the BEST because we believe (inside of us) that we are the BEST. In my own view, I opined that the four letter word BEST could be favourably described as your building esteemable self target. We have all had several records sets by different competitors or people in different endeavours of life, let’s take a look at some. In sports we set records like BEST footballers, BEST athletes, BEST sportsman of the year, most valuable player and the rest.
In entertainment we have had BEST muscian, BEST actors and actresses, BEST comidian, BEST entertainer and host of other BESTs. Even in politics and leaderships; different personalties have emerged in establishing the esteemable.
At this juncture, it is pertinent to note that being the BEST goes beyond ordinary perception, being the BEST entails rigours hard work and dedication, the love for doing that thing one loves doing BEST as well has infusing a huge sense of enthusiasm and zeal.
In addition, it will be quite vague for one’s dream to be achieved without having a practical and experiencial knowledge of one’s aspirations in life.
In summary, DREAMS are visualized, DREAMS can be actualised, DREAMS can brings out the perpetrators that lives in us, DREAMS can shape our world and redefined our destiny, DREAMS makes us set targets that are amiable,
DREAMS begats being BEST
DREAMS are the first step towards being the BEST – Building Esteemable Self Target.
