Men Have A Higher Rate Of Dying By Suicide – Chimamanda Adichie
Popular Nigerian author and feminist, Chimamanda Adichie, has a theory on why men have a much higher rate of dying by suicide than women. According to the third wave feminist, “Both men and women suffer from the illnesses that lead to suicide but it is men that have a much higher rate of dying by suicide. Why? Because men are socialized to suppress so many human parts of themselves, men are socialized not to ask for help, men are socialized to be afraid of fear, men are socialized not to show vulnerability. “From the moment we tell a little boy that ‘boys don’t cry’ or we tell a hurting teenager to ‘man up’ we are creating an adult man who will be cheated of the full range of his emotions. So, while men benefit from patriarchy, they also suffer from it.” See a clip of the video here

“Men are more liable to commit suicide”
How come the ones that make sense from Chimamanda like this don’t go viral…
And y’all expect her to make sense everytime? pic.twitter.com/d25E6KIIP7
— Prof. Yinka (@GalacticoHD) September 13, 2018
Yes I still agree with Chimamanda even though the whole point of it isn’t about agreement. It’s a known fact that suicide rate in men is higher and part of why is what CNA pointed but our masculinity as men has its positives like this speaker pointed out. They both made sense.

Femi Otedola To Run For Govenor
Business Tycoon and Chairman of Forte Oil PLC, Femi Otedola, has received his ticket to contest for the Governorship of Lagos State under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The information was revealed by the owner of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, on Twitter.
Breaking news: Lagos 2019 promises to be interesting. PDP offers Femi Otedola governorship ticket. He’s accepted and personally confirmed to The Boss newspaper…
— Dele Momodu Ovation (@DeleMomodu) September 11, 2018
I don’t think Lagosians will prefer any other to @AkinwunmiAmbode. That governor delivered.
It is best received that He’ll win reelection from any good party he joins. I believe he has grounded himself as the man of d people. Otedola will only remain a candidate in this election.
— Olumide Oludare (@KOMoludaremide) September 11, 2018
History has an uncanny way of repeating itself. Chief Micheal Otedola was regarded as an underdog but he became the Executive Governor of Lagos State as a result of the crisis in SDP. Is fate positioning Femi Otedola in the same stead? @DeleMomodu
— The Soaring Eagle (@Speak4ThemAll) September 12, 2018
I think Mr Otedola is more of an astute businessman than a politician, but if he actually wants to run, who says he can’t become a very good governor. All he’ll need is a couple of wise heads and bright young minds around him, who knows he may even eclipse the good work of Ambode
