    Buhari and Lawan: Marionette and marionette operator

Buhari and Lawan: Marionette and marionette operator

I always campaign and fight for a healthy and vigorous synergy between the Executive and Legislative arms of government. When this happens, the people benefit immensely for it, but what I detest is the legislative arm of government being filled with marionettes, being controlled by a marionette in the Federal Capital territory. When the Senators of the Federal Republic of [...]

    Fellow Nigerians, your leaders do not believe two hoots in Nigeria

Fellow Nigerians, your leaders do not believe two hoots in Nigeria

Some blocks of years ago, my definition of patriotism and nationalism began to change when I noticed that about 99% of those who call themselves nation builders have more than one passport. If Nigeria collapses (God forbid) today, it does not affect them a hoot. It will only crash on the poor man’s head. It was then that my mindset [...]

Those Buhari know, he does not need; those he needs, he does not know

One thing I like about Mr. President is that he has an artistic way of proving wrong—those who are appallingly following him blindly, probably because of the crumbs that daily fall from his table. Each time they come out to lie to the common man on behalf of PMB, baba comes out to put them to shame. A few months [...]

    Stop hastening ‘Baba’ so that dead people aren’t appointed again

Stop hastening ‘Baba’ so that dead people aren’t appointed again

What they disingenuously blamed ex-governor Ibikunle Amosun for, they are all doing it. They all want to remain in power, even after either four (4) or eight (8) years. This is why they all can kill to ensure that they pass the baton of leadership to those whom are very loyal to them. Who amongst our politicians would want to [...]

    Ruga settlement agenda and the undemocratic annotations from the presidency

Ruga settlement agenda and the undemocratic annotations from the presidency

A few weeks ago, the agenda was about the dead and buried “Fulani Radio Station,” but today, it is on the dappled “Ruga” settlement agenda that is being peddled and flogged by a few political-elements in the administration of president Buhari and Mr. president, because he is the one calling the shots when it comes to everything on the ongoing [...]

    Like Abacha’s vision 2010, like Buhari’s vision to lift 100million Nigerians out of poverty

Like Abacha’s vision 2010, like Buhari’s vision to lift 100million Nigerians out of poverty

Leaders speak, not because they have to speak; they speak because they have something meaningful and transformational to say. Our political leaders speak because they have to speak, playing politics, not because they have anything tangle to say that will further better the life of the common man. Infact, they are never committed to what they say. Furthermore, it is [...]

    Ahmad Lawan: A party stooge or a national stalwart?

Ahmad Lawan: A party stooge or a national stalwart?

A couple of minutes ago, Nigerians and the rest of the world witnessed the emergence of Senator Ahmad Lawan as the Senate President of the 9th Assembly. Four years ago, the ruling party wanted him to be the Senate President of the 8th Assembly, but it ended up not working out because President Buhari was still learning his ropes in [...]

    AIT/Raypower shutdown: An albatross around the neck of Buhari

AIT/Raypower shutdown: An albatross around the neck of Buhari

To start with, I do not like both the AIT and RAYPOWER one bit. I opine that their founder betrayed the collective trust of our people when AIT became a partisan when the PDP held sway in Nigeria. Decades ago, when AIT went up in flames, it was the poor and helpless people of Nigeria—who contributed their “widow’s mite” to [...]

    Has Buhari reappointed Garba Shehu?

Has Buhari reappointed Garba Shehu?

On the 28th of May, 2019, the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari came to an uninteresting and a dreary end, and on the 29th of May, 2019, another uninspiring and uneventful term in office began. And on the next day, PMB departed for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting in Makkah, Saudi Arabia for a meeting. What a [...]

    I too rate PMB very low on economy, security and patriotism

I too rate PMB very low on economy, security and patriotism

Politicians in our clime really do not know how to build a rock-solid nation, but one thing they do so well—they are experts at rating themselves so high. Dogara rated very high (including on patriotism) the current House of Representatives while President Buhari rated them very low on patriotism. The truth is; neither PMB nor those who are being paid [...]

    Nigerian politicians: Leaders or locusts?

Nigerian politicians: Leaders or locusts?

Nigerians did not vote for anyone to pray for them in either Saudi Arabia or Israel. We do have enough pastors and imams—who are doing all that and more. In serious climes, political leaders are being voted into power to solve economic and security problems, but here, after voting them into power, they become naïve, oblivious and clueless, and start [...]

    Buhari is supposed to travel to Saudi to learn how to plan, not to pray

Buhari is supposed to travel to Saudi to learn how to plan, not to pray

Most of our professionals now speak as politicians—in order to retain their jobs. And I cannot really blame them, because jobs are scarce like diamonds in Nigeria of today. To retain their jobs, they have to keep speaking like Presidential aides. Remember, you cannot speak for politicians and not lie to the common man!Where our politicians are found determine what [...]

    Mr President, what does losing weight have to do with working hard?

Mr President, what does losing weight have to do with working hard?

As far as I am concerned, the only evidence that the Adamu Mohammed, the current Inspector General (IG) of Police is working hard is—when Nigerians are no longer being killed like rams and goats and these shameless and senseless killings are happening every-day. In saner climes, it is productivity that determines whether public servants are working hard or not. A [...]

Where exactly is Buhari in the UK and what is he doing?

For some days now, Nigerians have been without both a President and an Acting President and those who did stage protests across the length and width of Nigeria some years back—have not staged even one protest in order to know exactly where President Buhari is and what he is currently doing in the United Kingdom. The truth is; shame on [...]

    Buhari: A public servant on a private visit to the UK

Buhari: A public servant on a private visit to the UK

The first time President Buhari left for the United Kingdom for medical treatment; those who are being paid to speak for him did not want Nigerians to know, as if PMB is a tin-god who cannot take ill. As far as they were concerned, Nigerians did not deserve to know, but when “baba” returned from the first long trip to [...]

Buhari and the 2nd unfinished ‘bus stop’ commissioning

Above a year ago, President Buhari came to Lagos to commission an Ultra Modern Ikeja Bus Terminal, shutting down some major roads, making life extremely difficult and thorny for those he did swear to make life easy for. Till this moment, the Ikeja Bus Terminal is yet to commute a singular Lagosian across a route let alone 100,000 of them [...]
