Lootocracy: Amadioha Come And Loot The Looters

Monday, April 4, 2016
lsquo;It was without vision, it was without intelligence, it was without competence, and it was without integrity.

The politics of Esse: A Nigeria without Nigerians

Monday, April 4, 2016
After the winning and dinning associated with Sunday, the last thing on my mind was to sit up before crock crow on Monday thinking above Nigeria. A mere geographical expression as opinionated by the late sage Jeremiah Obafemi Awolowo. Nigeria, truth be told, have given my young mind sleep ...

Nigeria: Buhari And His College Of Saints

Thursday, November 19, 2015
Have you ever loved and trusted somebody, and then find out the person does not have fidelity in his or her dictionary? Ask me and I will gladly tell you, Baba don fuckup. The moment the list of PMB crept to the social media domain, my first reaction was to ignore it. After over three mont ...

Nigeria: From Boko Haram To Shettima--Haram

Thursday, November 19, 2015
Before I empty my plate, let me quickly make haste to make some disclaimer. Even though I am a catholic, I have met and interacted with civilized, humane and urban Muslims. I am also in love with the philosophy of Muslims political leaders, like Alhaji Aminu Kano and Nasir El-Rufai. I know ...

Nigeria: “The  Gods Are Not To Blame”

Friday, October 23, 2015
We just celebrated 55 years of independence without any at self-advertisement, but simply as a matter of fact, if there is anything I am proud of it is the fact that I am a Nigerian. And, it is my conviction then and now that Nigeria is the hope Africa. My people say that one does not hide ...

Nigeria: A Larger Chibok

Monday, July 14, 2014
I am a Nigerian and will continue to find joy and pride in carrying the green passport. However, like Judge Orweil observed, 'In time of deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act' there is that tendency for some people sympathetic to Abuja to put on me a toga of a rebel. I have ...

Confab: Before Gerontocracy Smiles

Sunday, June 1, 2014
When the list of the so called Delegate to the Confab crept into the square, I laughed to the point of busting. Initially, my preferred choice was to cry but I realized that my excess reserve of tears went bankrupt last time GEJ gave Late Sani Abacha a saintly toga and made him a saint of 'nation ...

Between GEJ And The Northern Bullies

Sunday, June 1, 2014
Since to ignore plato the philosopher is to ignore plato the poet, one cannot discuss Nigeria without making mention of 'Jamar Mutani Arewa'. Any attempt to do so is like talking about Chinua Achebe's 'things fall apart' forgetting Okonkwo the tragic hero. However, here, if charity demands tha ...

North-East: The Political Economy Of Haramism

Sunday, June 1, 2014
For those of us who have strong ties with the North and Northerners, no point is potent enough to dismiss the fact that Nigeria is a hobbesian state of nature where life is short, nasty and brutish. My prayer for Nigeria did not start today. As a child, I knelt beside my Mum at the Saint Williams ...

GEJ: Between A Shambolic Nation And A Shameless Leader

Friday, April 4, 2014
The political stint oozing out of the presidency since GEJ crept into the political arena can suffocate the combine record of Jean Bokassa of CAR, Idi Amin of Uganda and Mubutu Sese Sekou of former Zaire now Congo DR. 'Plus ça change, plus c'est pire'(the more it changes, the more it becomes wo ...
