Nnamdi Kanu, Nigeria, and Wasted Opportunities -By Charles Odimgbe

  What is going on in Nigeria today is beyond comprehension. I have no clue what the young man called Nnamdi Kalu wants from the Igbo, or how he came to such huge fame so quickly. However, his rise strikes me as indicative of the state of the Igbo in the current dispensation. It goes […]

  In the eyes of the apparatchiks of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, and tub-thumpers of President Muhammadu Buhari, there is no vacuum in the presidential leadership today. Buhari, a man who seems to have triumphed after wrestling with the beast of an undisclosed ailment, remains the President. From all indications, those of us praying […]

  As I set out for Onitsha from Lagos on August 15, 2017, I was informed that the journey would be deemed through, only after we had gone beyond the Benin Bypass. This is because trucks, mainly Dangote trucks, had constituted a nuisance at a bad spot on the road. So, we set out very […]

  ‘Bring Back Diezani’ As usual, I was watching the news the other day, and saw that the ‘Resume or Resign’ People (Ourmumudondo) have metamorphosed into ‘Bring Back Diezani’ (BBD). A Government functionary, in responding to their demand, explained there was certain protocol to be followed, before she can be brought back. I must say […]

  Realism is a central theory in political analyses, and it can be applied to self-interests and how power is balanced in a structural system. The use of realism to explain the interactions of power is called political realism, which often emphasizes on rule-of-law and morality. In today’s Nigeria, balance-of-power among its various ethnic nationalities […]

  It is clear that Chief Bayo Oluwasanmi was wearing an ethnic lens when he read the satire “Ndigbo Will Conquer And Rule In Oduduwa Republic” published in SaharaReporters on August 7th, 2017. If not, there is no explanation why a “renowned” writer like Mr. Oluwasanmi should pen the gibberish “Churchill Okonkwo: A Contemptuous Ingrate […]

  The name Adams Oshiomhole invokes the good, the bad and the ugly. The good in it is his ability to showcase himself relentlessly as a labor leader of note behind the facade of deceit, self-righteousness and his minimal dent on Edo State governorship for 8 years. The bad in it has always been his […]

  The Nigerian ruling class has forgotten its memory. The suggestion in some quarters that those seeking elective and appointed office should be subjected to psychiatric evaluation may be right after all. I firmly subscribe to that school of thought. As a result of the ruling class’ pathetic memory lapse deficiency and status arrogance, they’ve […]

Buhari: More A Dove, Than A Lion King -By Nkechi Odoma

Comments Off on Buhari: More A Dove, Than A Lion King -By Nkechi Odoma

  The lion is widely known as the king of the jungle. It is strong and devours other lesser animals so effortlessly and recklessly. She is dreaded and worshipped by other animals. On the other hand, the dove is a small harmless bird, which is symbolized in the Holy Scriptures as the harbinger of peace, […]

Churchill Okonkwo: A Contemptuous Ingrate Don’t Take Yoruba Kindness For Weakness, We’re Not weak! -By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Comments Off on Churchill Okonkwo: A Contemptuous Ingrate Don’t Take Yoruba Kindness For Weakness, We’re Not weak! -By Bayo Oluwasanmi

  Churchill Okonkwo’s article “Ndigbo Will Conquer And Rule In Oduduwa Republic” published August 7, 2017, in SaharaReporters, is a figment of imagination as useless as dried-up springs or as mist blown away by the wind. His braggings about Ndigbo’s taking over in the Oduduwa Republic is an empty foolish boasting with an appeal to […]
