L’homosexualité n’est pas une pratique traditionnelle et ne doit pas faire l’objet de discours et de politiques de séduction, de discours qui, à travers toutes les médias, ont jusqu’à présent dénoncé l’homosexualité.

Il préfère ne pas dire qu'il a pris une décision, mais « il me semble qu'il y a une énorme distinction entre les deux », écrit-il sur france inter, à propos de la communication sur l'accord sur les mines de pétrole.

 Since the beginning of existence of humans, communication has been a live wire that keeps our world revolving. It has been an essential part of discoveries, relationships, community development, and even secrets. A world without transfer of information, intentions and thoughts would better be described as ‘non-existent’. Communication can be seen as a culture which forms the basis of human interaction. It involves the verbal and non-verbal means. The study of human communications is known as anthroposemiotics.

There are many essential components of good communication which involves talking, touching, sighing, body languages and lots more. All these modes and media of communication have aided the growth of one of the most valuable cultures in the world today. A hallmark that has influenced the growth of communication is technology. As it affects communication, technology has heralded the advent of telegrams, phones, computers, internet and satellites in order to aid communication. These technological hallmarks have unarguably defeated the problems of distance, large population and time. In communication however, the possibilities of their negative effects on our social lives cannot be denied.

…the value of our friendship is gradually waning.

I would say over dependence on technology solely to communicate with friends, loved ones, associates and colleagues has not done us considerable good concerning our intimate social lives. As with friends, communication has been totally dependent on phones and chatting applications. No longer do friends make sacrifices to physically defy distances to see and connect one another. Few years back when phones used to be very expensive, I and my friends used to pay ourselves lots of unannounced visitations, and this I’ll say contributed to keeping us together. We’d walk under the sun, through quiet neighbourhoods. In contrast to recent times, the last time a friend of mine visited me was a decade ago. Femi, my childhood friend stays a pole away from my house and because we both spend long time on chatting applications with each other, oblivious of its detrimental consequence to our relationship, this has decreased the number of times we get to see each other. Since then, exciting moments we shared together became history. Rather than take the pain to ask after my friend in his apartment, I prefer to chat him up. Though undeniably exciting in some aspects, I must say the value of our friendship is gradually waning.

Touch, handshakes, hugs, eye contacts are actions I’ll describe as ‘checkpoints’ to our relationships. These checkpoints strengthen our relationships with one another. We see each other, shake hands, smile at each other, share warm hugs, and look into each other’s eyes, we hear each other’s heartbeat and feel each other’s pain.

…cannot be used to replace certain core aspects of our relationships

These highlighted faults are not to condemn communication technology. Rather we must not be oblivious of the fact that these technologies cannot be used to replace certain core aspects of our relationships as humans. Technology cannot convey fully, the energy of love and intimacy meant to flow through us as humans. It can neither transmit the warmth in a handshake nor the tight and comforting hug with a bereaved friend; it cannot allow the lending of thumb to wipe away tears of pain or joy, neither can it allow lovers to carry each other in their arms, staring into each other’s eyes. Hence, over dependence on technology translates to losing vital, essential and priceless events that excite us in our various relationships.
