Serial lies about Amnesty Programme, By Murphy Ganagana

Serial lies about Amnesty Programme, By Murphy Ganagana It is a sad commentary that the Niger Delta people face the paradox of having an amazing wealth in crude oil, but are buffeted by a whirlwind that has choked genuine efforts to turn around the situation in a region that is bare in human capital and infrastructural development. Ironically, parochial...... more

Neither amalgamation nor colonisation is our problem, By Chukwudi Ohiri

Neither amalgamation nor colonisation is our problem, By Chukwudi Ohiri I have read a lot of books, articles and commentaries on how Africa and, especially Nigeria’s underdevelopment and backwardness resulted from colonialism and specifically, the Amalgamation of 1914 (in the case of Nigeria). A recent article on social media emphatically sought to find out who signed the Amalgamation Treaty, highlighting how...... more

Jeffrey Epstein: Spiritual side of a pedophile, By Gabriel Agbo

Jeffrey Epstein: Spiritual side of a pedophile, By Gabriel Agbo For many years to come, book-makers will struggle to fully discover the person and the operation of Jeffery Epstein, the American millionaire pedophile convict, who recently committed suicide in a New York prison while awaiting trial for sexually abusing dozens of underage girls. He lived and died for sex. He looked...... more

Where are Sowore, Ohimai, Dadiyata? Asks Fredrick Nwabufo

Where are Sowore, Ohimai, Dadiyata? Asks Fredrick Nwabufo Democracy is freedom; freedom to exist and to exercise the full catalogue of natural rights. The quality of democracy in an ordered system is assessed by the quantity and level of freedom the citizens enjoy. Any type of government – military, fascist or totalitarian – can deliver services of material nature...... more

Revisiting “zoning and rotation”, By Edwin Madunagu

Revisiting “zoning and rotation”, By Edwin Madunagu At the end of the Nigerian Civil War (July 1967 – January 1970), and in preparation for a possible return to civilian rule, the ruling class established – or rather, creatively adapted—the dual principle of “zoning” and “rotation” of key political party offices and government positions among geopolitical segments of their...... more

Presidential Tribunal: When court abdicates responsibility, By Law Mefor

Presidential Tribunal: When court abdicates responsibility, By Law Mefor “Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear.”                                                            — Bertrand Russell It was quite a relief reading senior lawyers like Jibrin Okutepa, repudiating the strange judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. Lawyers...... more

Politics of prolonged looting, subversion of people’s will, By Meduoye Adeyinka

Politics of prolonged looting, subversion of people’s will, By Meduoye Adeyinka There is no general acceptability in their governmental and administrative proceedings, as being designed and mapped out in their closet. Their body of knowledge and one-sided practices are unrealistic and, thus, causing gory experiences within the hemisphere of our porous societies, and belittling the standard of living, hence taking the nation...... more

Xenophobic attacks in South Africa: An omitted discourse, By Toye Abioye

Xenophobic attacks in South Africa: An omitted discourse, By Toye Abioye In the midst of the cacophony of voices, opinions and video clips going all over the place, the xenophobic attacks in South Africa have attracted lots of comments- some from leaders in the South African society have further drawn the ire of many others. In South Africa, there is a TV...... more

Buhari has never won an election case, By Emmanuel Ogebe, ESQ

Buhari has never won an election case, By Emmanuel Ogebe, ESQ In all the years that Gen. Buhari has litigated his election losses, he has always lost. The closest he ever came to a tribunal victory to annul the election was in the 2007 election where two dissenting justices of the Supreme Court sided with him on appeal although he lost unanimously...... more

Sorry, I don’t think Atiku is coming, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Sorry, I don’t think Atiku is coming, By Fredrick Nwabufo I have pondered on Atiku Abubakar’s case against President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential election petition tribunal. I have also cerebrated on the counter arguments of the president. By my ratiocination, the arguments of both parties are nourished with so much ridiculousness that the case itself appeals more as comic relief....... more

100 days of ‘Baba-go-slow’ Buhari, By Fredrick Nwabufo

100 days of ‘Baba-go-slow’ Buhari, By Fredrick Nwabufo How do you measure the virility of an administration; its potency to impregnate the economy, infrastructure and welfare of citizens?  Should it be in the first 100 days of its life; in two or four years? Well, I will measure it in the little steps, in actions and in the agenda....... more

IPOB: Enemy of democracy, By Gracelyn Eshet

 IPOB: Enemy of democracy, By Gracelyn Eshet The increasing notoriety of the IPOB, this time as an external terror group, is yet another baffling example of the rising profile of counter-democratic forces in Nigeria. Gone are the days when the most potent threat to democracy was the military coup. The barrel of the gun has now been effectively...... more

Nigerian statesmen missing in action, By Atanasius Mgbor

 Nigerian statesmen missing in action, By  Atanasius Mgbor Considering the enormity of the challenges confronting governance in Nigeria and the strenuous commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to brave the odds and remain undeterred in providing responsible leadership as mandated by Nigerians, what an awesome difference it would make if our most prominent elder statesmen-Gowon, Obasanjo, Babangida, Danjuma and Abdulsalaam-...... more

Wadume, reflection of Nigerian political leaders, By Jelili Adebiyi

Wadume, reflection of Nigerian political leaders, By Jelili Adebiyi Since the inconceivable incident that led to the death of four police officers in Taraba made newspaper headlines, Hamisu Bala, alias Wadume, the kidnap kingpin, at the centre of the saga has been the talk of the town. In Wadume, many see a bandit, a kidnapper. Yes, he is! Yet, the...... more

Nigeria vs PI&D: Meandering out of the spurious $9.6bn conundrum, By International Human Rights Lawyer Emmanuel Ogebe

Nigeria vs PI&D: Meandering out of the spurious $9.6bn conundrum, By International Human Rights Lawyer Emmanuel Ogebe We are taking time to briefly review the mysterious P&ID saga and the odious award against Nigeria of almost $10 billion to them, with interest reportedly accruing at $1.2 million each day effectively for no service delivery. We are not counsel in the matter but as an issue of grave national...... more

Zoning, 2023 Presidential Poll and Anti-Nasir El-Rufai media campaign, By Emmanuel Ado      “In war, you can only be killed once, but in politics many times.”                                                                                              — Winston Churchill.

Xenophobia and reality of hatred among blacks

Xenophobia and reality of hatred among blacks Like the blood-sucking army of the dead hidden far behind the northern wall – they assembled, motioned in droves, ransacking and pillaging every corner of the street. They burgled into kiosks and business palaces; irrupts onto shop verandas – forcefully phishing out their fellow African to the open, like a thief...... more

We lose citizens to xenophobia, police ‘kill’ Shoprite protester; has South Africa cursed us? By Fredrick Nwabufo

We lose citizens to xenophobia, police ‘kill’ Shoprite protester; has South Africa cursed us? By Fredrick Nwabufo Reports say a Nigerian, who had gone to lodge a protest against the dispatch of his fellow countrymen by a ravening, xenophobic bloodhound in South Africa at Shoprite, Lekki, Lagos, ended up becoming a victim of the untamed violence of Nigeria's security agents. Tragic! How can the lives of citizens matter...... more

Ikpeazu and the Ariaria traders’ sing-song, By Godwin Adindu

Ikpeazu and the Ariaria traders’ sing-song, By Godwin Adindu From the beauty of the main entry point, the popular Faulks Road, with the well-paved pedestrian walkway and the concrete median that have helped to control traffic, there is a sense of order and decency that bespeak of the new Ariaria International Market in Aba, Abia State. There is also a...... more

Who do ‘Magu boys’ work for, EFCC or an emperor? By Fredrick Nwabufo

Who do ‘Magu boys’ work for, EFCC or an emperor? By Fredrick Nwabufo A scathing detraction to professionalism in Nigeria is the customisation of public offices. Institutions are built around personalities rather than on principles and service. The corrugation of Nigeria’s public offices and institutions has a long history. But of significance is the brazen privatisation and deployment of public office to insular ends...... more

That ill-advised assault on Senator Ike Ekweremadu, By Benjamin Obiajulu Aduba

That ill-advised assault on Senator Ike Ekweremadu, By Benjamin Obiajulu Aduba I was on vacation and did not have access to internet or much of worldwide news, so missed out on the “Ekweremadu Story”. But I want to be on record with my views. The anger expressed by the Igbo in Germany is in order but they chose the wrong candidate. Ekweremadu...... more

Ekweremadu: IPOB’s show of shame in Germany, By Ray Nkama

Ekweremadu: IPOB’s show of shame in Germany, By Ray Nkama The unprovoked attack on former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, in Germany, last weekend, by some disgruntled elements, operating under the toga of IPOB, can only be described as an infantile display of crass ignorance. To me, no responsible Igbo man or woman would support such a disrespectful and disturbing development....... more

Ekweremadu’s Attack: 2023 politics or vendetta? By Law Mefor

Ekweremadu’s Attack: 2023 politics or vendetta? By Law Mefor The proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, said that Ekweremadu’s Nuremberg attack days ago was a retaliation for his role in instigating, financing and defending a full-scale bloody military invasion of Biafra land – Operation Python Dance – which, according them, led to the torture and untimely death...... more

When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes a duty, By Opeyemi Timothy Oyeleke

When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes a duty, By Opeyemi Timothy Oyeleke The Nigerian society is very vast, large and homogeneous in nature. It consists of numerous ethnic and tribal groups, languages, culture, customs and traditions, etc. Each regions, states, local governments, town, cities, villages and communities have their distinctive peculiarities. The solution to Area A is probably not effectively applicable to Area...... more

The Igbo crime culture (2) by Fredrick Nwabufo

The Igbo crime culture (2) by Fredrick Nwabufo In the heat of the lynching of Igbo citizens in Asia in 2013 over alleged criminality, I wrote an essay entitled, ‘The Igbo fallacy’. In it, I appealed to the Igbo to de-emphasise the culture of profligacy, decadent opulence and vanity which fuels the pursuit of crime by their own. I...... more

NEWMAP and 100-feet irrecoverable gullies in South-East, By Chima Nwafo

NEWMAP and 100-feet irrecoverable gullies in South-East, By Chima Nwafo Ndiegoro-Aba erosion was one of the earliest recorded in the 1970s. That is based on my recollections and not according to any national database (if any existed then). The sight was intimidating, but watching the flash flood in its destructive torrent, hours after rainfall, was quite menacing and fearful. Streets and...... more
