Aligning organisation with programme in Leftist politics, By Edwin Madunagu

Aligning organisation with programme in Leftist politics, By Edwin Madunagu One major problem limiting the national effectiveness and impact of the Nigerian Left in the country’s politics—at least since the end of the (1967-1970) Civil War—has been the contradictions (or “disconnect”) between organization and programme. Put more concretely: The inability of the organizations of the Left to fully and satisfactorily accomplish...... more

Politics, governance and human development, By Peter Obi

Politics, governance and human development, By Peter Obi From its essentials, Politics is about attaining and using power in public life to be able to influence decisions that affect society.

Imperative of second term endorsements for Ikpeazu, By Okechukwu Keshi Ukegbu Of recent, there has been a harvest of endorsements for the second term bid of Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu.

Local Government Autonomy and abuse of representative democracy, By Lauratu Umar Abdulsalam

Local Government Autonomy and abuse of representative democracy, By Lauratu Umar Abdulsalam In a democracy, it is common knowledge that power belongs to the people, and not the people in power. The implication of this is that, the citizenry, through their elected representatives at various levels of government, can reflect their choices on issues that are of concern to them. This, in fact,...... more

‘The educator must be educated’, By Edwin Madunagu

‘The educator must be educated’, By Edwin Madunagu This piece is a memo to the Nigerian Left. In an ideal situation, on account of the importance I attach to the subject, the document would have appeared, first, as an internal memo to an appropriate organ of the movement. For the same reason of importance, it would not have stopped...... more

What’s in Aso Rock that makes presidents want to live and die there? By Fredrick Nwabufo

What’s in Aso Rock that makes presidents want to live and die there? By Fredrick Nwabufo Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) spent eight years as head of state at Aso Rock. He pledged at different times in his regime to return power to “the people”. But he never did.  Somehow, he always found a way to dribble himself out of the maze of his own mendacity. I remember...... more

Does Buhari deserve a second term?

Does Buhari deserve a second term? It is said that one good turn deserves another. Does President Muhammadu Buhari deserve a second term in office?

Balancing inequalities for Presidency in APC, By Uthman Isa Tochukwu

Balancing inequalities for Presidency in APC, By Uthman Isa Tochukwu There is no gainsaying that 2019 presidential bid in the All Progressives Congress (APC) is sacrosanct for President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB), though (unknown yet) or any other northern preferred candidate. Who would be the running-mate for vice-president: Igbo or Yoruba? This question, suffice to say, has left me pondering over the...... more

The steady transformation of Gombe, By Bidemi Adeniyi

The steady transformation of Gombe, By Bidemi Adeniyi Gombe State may not have measured up to her slogan of ‘Jewel of the Savannah’, but for Ibrahim Dankwambo. The state was rustic and lacked the basic infrastructure befitting of a state before the incumbent governor came into power on May 29, 2011.

Open Government Partnership and stakeholder engagement, By Uche Igwe

Open Government Partnership and stakeholder engagement, By Uche Igwe One of the most difficult challenges to sustainable implementation of policy reforms is the inability to adequately identify and engage with relevant stakeholders.

Of Rule of Law and war against corruption, By Okechukwu Keshi Ukegbu

Of Rule of Law and war against corruption, By Okechukwu Keshi Ukegbu Corruption in Nigeria context has been a nagging issue. The phenomenon has defied any known definition. It is as recalcitrant as the character abiku, the ogbanje girl – in Wole Soyinka’s popular Abiku – which keeps reincarnating. Corruption has also defied every effort by successive governments to put it at bay. It is either that corruption...... more

Okorocha’s politics of ‘agburu anyi’ and retirement, By Collins Ughalaa

Okorocha’s politics of ‘agburu anyi’ and retirement, By Collins Ughalaa Not many people in Imo State know that Governor Rochas Okorocha has never changed. Power has not changed him, either. It has only magnified his shortcomings and exposed him as man lacking self-control, a man disappointingly unable to control his urge for the mundane; a man who is never deficient in...... more

Fredrick Nwabufo: Buhari’s US speech is rice without stew

Fredrick Nwabufo: Buhari’s US speech is rice without stew I listened to the speech of President Muhammadu Buhari in the quaking consciousness of an Arsenal Football Club fan.

He gave a debilitating smirk when he talked about the “killing of...... more

Fredrick Nwabufo: What Trump needs to know before Buhari tells him I’m a criminal

 Fredrick Nwabufo: What Trump needs to know before Buhari tells him I’m a criminal   President Muhammadu Buhari has been likened to that father who goes to the house of his daughter’s suitor to announce that she is a prostitute.
