Hey! 
I know, I know. The folks at Patreon showed me all the data that said, this was likely to hold your attention if it was a video. I saw the data and decided to rebel. If you're still reading, we're much alike.

I am Emmanuel-Francis and I would like to invite you on an adventure, one full of history, or in this, our story, that we'll learn, together!

I write about issues facing Nigeria in particular and Africa in general. I believe in dousing my writing in a good dose of historical analysis. It is my belief that doing so leads to a write-up equal parts: balanced, interesting and most importantly informative.

Obviously, my writing depends on having access to sources of information, of which the best--books and time--- aren't free, not even, I'm told, in Freetown. That was a letdown.

This is where you, so once and future Patron come in. By sending me your dough, we achieve the following:

  • Help improve my knowledge, making me incredibly well informed in my chosen areas of study. I'm sure we agree that this is a worthy goal, for us, as I learn, you do too.

  • Increase the quality of my writing, which due to being a source of knowledge and entertainment to you is a win-win.

  • Help me defray some of my student expenses.
The above are short-term goals. In the long-term I hope to write a book or books, drawing on the materials I had acquired thanks to your kind support.

So basically, short-term we gain. Long-term the world does.

So why not stick to Quora?

I love Quora, and I view it as a fundamental part of my academic journey. This, however, is different. I intend at some point in the future to write my own books, so this serves as market research; are people willing to pay my words? If they are, then what sort of work would they want? Perhaps a collection of essays, a historical book, or something else, what?

Also as Adam Smith said, "The propensity to truck, barter and exchange one thing for another is common to all men". This is me embracing my Homo Economus.

If you skipped to the end, here's the summary: If you help transform me into Scrooge McDuck, I'll spin Gold for you, like the girl from Rumpelstiltskin.

Thank you so very much for reading, and hopefully, adopting my work. I will do my utmost to make my content as enjoyable to you, as the sound of the drop of your coin in my piggy-bank is to me. Best Wishes.
