Puff Puff is a Nigerian snack popular in the western part of the country. It's also served as refreshment in parties and an important member of the small chop family.

So here is it: Ingredients *Two cups of  flour *Half cup of sugar *One spoon of yeast * One spoon  of Salt *Half cup of  warm water *Nut Meg *Pepper (Ground pepper or fresh pepper) Pre-preparation steps: * Sieve the flour to remove lumps and impurities * Make sure the ground pepper don't clog together to ensure a good mixture. * Cut fresh pepper into small pieces or pound. * Test the originality of the yeast by mixing with warm water.

If you are a lover of books; fiction and non fiction especially those from African descent, I'm certain you must have come across the works of this famous Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. Her works are always thought provoking, she writes the type of books that will make you question accepted societal beliefs. Zikora is a short story of a thirty nine year old woman who falls pregnant and is abandoned by the father of her child who was formerly in love with her.  We are introduced to the complicated life of Zikora as she lays on the hospital bed labouring to birth her baby. Through flashbacks, the story of her life prior to her pregnancy unfolds. She is a successful lawyer, an immigrant of Nigeria descent residing in America, who fell in love with a Ghanian lawyer Kwamme, they were so in sync with each other, shared same values and understood their individual culture; which were similar.

THE UNFORTUNATE PLIGHT OF NIGERIAN UNIVERSITY LECTURERS

The argument revolving around the survival of the educational sector in general and Nigerian universities in particular has been raging for decades. But never have we come so close, face to face, with an imminent collapse unless drastic measures are taken. In this article, I will be as analytical, objective and as factual as possible so that those who pretend to be deaf might hear. By this exposé, I intend to rouse all and sundry to rally round the Nigerian Lecturer and put up a last minute struggle in order to forestall the looming tragedy.  *The First Shock The Nigerian Lecturer is the most abused, misused, exploited, misunderstood and manipulated civil servant in the country. When he assumes duty, he is sent into the fray empty-handed. He is not given any kick-off allowance and to begin with, he has to save up money for months to buy the laptop which he will use to discharge his duties. I am sure you know that a good laptop costs between #200,000 and #500,000, or even more. Now a Gr
