Nnamdi Kanu is like Ojukwu, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Nnamdi Kanu is like Ojukwu, By Fredrick Nwabufo I just watched a video of “Nnamdi Kanu in Israel”.  And truly, it was him. In the video, he stands before the Wailing Wall, “wailing”; a voice in the background spits platitudes as the “supreme leader” prays. He then terminates his ritual and turns to the camera to affirm his “invincibility”....... more

On differences within the Nigerian Left, By Edwin Madunagu

On differences within the Nigerian Left, By Edwin Madunagu For almost a year now, since I resumed writing for publication in the media, I have deliberately referred to the Nigerian Left — my primary concern in this ideological and political enterprise — as if it is a homogenous or monolithic entity. But I know that most of my readers know,...... more

2019 Presidency: Peter Obi is a worthy choice as Atiku’s running mate! By Goddy Uwazurike

2019 Presidency: Peter Obi is a worthy choice as Atiku’s running mate! By Goddy Uwazurike I have read with disgust the vituperations of the enemies of this country on the choice of Peter Obi as the running mate of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. The complaints range from non-consultation to why the choice should be from the South East to the ridiculous protest of non-PDP...... more

The Igbo eat their own, By Fredrick Nwabufo

The Igbo eat their own, By Fredrick Nwabufo That the Igbo are in a political freeze is largely due to their own “sleight of hand”; that they are in disarray is because they never agree. And that they have not had any success in politics since 1999 is because they still think Nigeria is Egypt where they are slaves....... more

A lifeless evening with Buhari, By Fredrick Nwabufo

A lifeless evening with Buhari, By Fredrick Nwabufo Of all Nigeria’s presidents, the incumbent, Muhammadu Buhari, is the one with a diminutive intellectual stature. His severe intellectual malnourishment is not even a subject of debate; most of his supporters admit that he is not smart. But they taper their admittance with a claim that he makes up for what...... more

2019: Concerns and disturbing sound-bites, By Chima Nwafo

2019: Concerns and disturbing sound-bites, By Chima Nwafo “This leadership style that has elevated sectionalism to near state policy has not only left the country divided, but also enthroned mediocrity over competence, leaving Nigerians pauperised, insecure and their commonwealth plundered.” — Majeed Dahiru Even though political parties in Nigeria have reduced presidential/governorship to personality contest with a facade of...... more

Today, I celebrate Governor Ambode, a true ‘omoluwabi’, By Bernard Balogun

Today, I celebrate Governor Ambode, a true ‘omoluwabi’, By Bernard Balogun Today, I celebrate a politician of Nigerian extraction. A man who has served his state of residence, Lagos, with unhidden dedication, devotion, passion and total submission to the supreme wish of the party he belongs – the All Progressives Congress (APC) – and by extension the Nigerian nation. By this, I...... more

Presidential Candidate: Danger ahead for PDP

Presidential Candidate: Danger ahead for PDP Whereas, former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, who led the effort to realise the candidature of Buhari on the massive opposition APC platform, did not consider friendship, because what was at stake was much more than what friendship could deliver, Governor Wike has committed an egregious strategic blunder by allowing his interest...... more

Who is afraid of Emmanuel Uduaghan?

Who is afraid of Emmanuel Uduaghan? The story of the immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan, is synonymous to “Joseph” in the Holy Book, the Bible, whom despite persecution, hatred and victimization stood tall because God was with him. From his days as a commissioner, it has been one battle to the other...... more

Dangerously discordant tunes by Osita Ogenyi: A Rejoinder to ‘A growing threat to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s reputation’ Ojora Ogenyi penned down a perturbing piece, “A growing Threat to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s Reputation”, on www.thisdaylive.com of September 28, 2018, cataloging what he believes are threats to Gov. Ugwuanyi’s reputation. Good write-up grammatically, as it may seem, his thoughts are jumbled up and incoherent. While I do not wish to...... more

‘Ogbanje’ Nigeria Air was a hustle for the boys, By Fredrick Nwabufo

‘Ogbanje’ Nigeria Air was a hustle for the boys, By Fredrick Nwabufo Nigeria Air was still-birthed because it was never meant to reach parturition in the first place. It was a grand scam. A cash-out for the boys; though I fell for it. When Hadi Siriki, minister of aviation, displayed a nondescript logo announcing that Nigeria Air would launch in December, I became...... more

Osun 2018 Guber: the streets are watching!

Osun 2018 Guber: the streets are watching! Once upon an administration in the State of Osun, a people groaned in the rough of aches and moaned in the tumble of pains.

Revisiting ‘democracy and dictatorship’, By Edwin Madunagu

Revisiting ‘democracy and dictatorship’, By Edwin Madunagu Let us begin by quickly recalling two bits of Nigeria’s recent history. First, at the close of 1983, a military junta overthrew and supplanted the elected civilian government of Shehu Shagari, the first and only president of Nigeria’s Second Republic (1979-1983). Then, early in 1985, in the second year of the...... more

Tinubu: What the most powerful man in Babylon must know, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Tinubu: What the most powerful man in Babylon must know, By Fredrick Nwabufo I have been thinking about Jagaban, Bola Ahmed Tinubu lately. I think he deserves an encomium for tipping into the expansive shoes of the sage, Obafemi Awolowo, by forging a united bunch out of disparate broomsticks.
