    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

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 [...]

    President Buhari and Zainab Ahmed: Who is subsidising who?

President Buhari and Zainab Ahmed: Who is subsidising who?

I never knew that it is possible and feasible to become a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) without being licensed to practice in Nigeria. I will not be able to camp around this issue for so long a time because you know I am not schooled in both the spirit and letter of the law, but I appeal to every [...]

    President Buhari promises outsiders what Nigerians do not have

President Buhari promises outsiders what Nigerians do not have

My people have this to say: “if someone promises to give you a dress, you would need to first look at the one he’s wearing.” If the one he is wearing mirrors that he also needs one, just know that he cannot afford to give you any valuable dress. Someone who is helpless cannot afford to help you and it [...]

    Those who were vociferous under GEJ are silent under PMB

Those who were vociferous under GEJ are silent under PMB

For the umpteenth time, the major quandary facing Nigeria isn’t corruption and bad leadership. I opine that the major problem facing Nigeria is double standards and two-facedness. I never knew that those who were attacking His Excellency Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, when he was in office, but never in power—were doing so, not because they love Nigeria, but because they too [...]

    Unveiling to Buhari, the real sense of belonging Nigerians yearn for

Unveiling to Buhari, the real sense of belonging Nigerians yearn for

In Nigeria, it is one day, one drama. One thing that can never be exhausted in Nigeria is drama of all shades. It was thespian and confusing some hours ago when leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and other religious leaders—went to greet President Buhari on his victory at the last polls. I do have no problems with [...]

    A hypocritical federal minister complaining about pizza!

A hypocritical federal minister complaining about pizza!

While one is thinking about the ongoing hot-weather, and overwhelming and wicked power-outage—two dangerous combinations—that make it almost impossible for one to sleep in the night and as an effect of this, one ordinarily would not want to laugh, but more than what a comedian could deliver, Mr. Audu Ogbe did effortlessly succeed in making one to laugh, without paying [...]

    What will happen to Seyi Makinde, Dapo Abiodun and Sanwo-Olu in the days to come

What will happen to Seyi Makinde, Dapo Abiodun and Sanwo-Olu in the days to come

I hardly attend ceremonies, because I am an indoors person, but many years ago, in the city of Ibadan, where I hail from, I attended a wedding ceremony. It was what you call—a society wedding ceremony. Through-out my stay at the venue, where the wedding ceremony did take place, one name was on all our lips—the bride’s name. It was [...]

    Governance in Nigeria: A multi-trillion naira industry

Governance in Nigeria: A multi-trillion naira industry

The major and foremost reason there is always so much tension, crisis and bloodshed in our polity during elections is because governance in Nigeria is a multi-trillion naira industry for a few, not a tool for national development. Sadly, it is the only industry in Nigeria that is working. Also, it is the only industry that can make you a [...]

    Only silly citizens would die for politicians who are void of values

Only silly citizens would die for politicians who are void of values

A few days ago, when the news broke on social media that Otunba Gbenga Daniel was quitting active politics, I knew that he was only dumping the PDP for APC, not quitting active politics! I equally told one of my team members—that it was impossible for him to quit active politics at this time in his political career. I also [...]

    When to pray for political leaders and when to pray them out of power

When to pray for political leaders and when to pray them out of power

The fundamental, deep-seated and elemental issue I am raising right now has been debated ferociously for many decades amongst the Christian population in our promising nation and the whole of Africa. Many people believe that no matter how bad a political leader is that the only job Christians have—is to continue to pray for him—for wisdom and long life. They [...]

    Nigeria: A nation where ‘slaves’ are oppressing their ‘masters’

Nigeria: A nation where ‘slaves’ are oppressing their ‘masters’

It is unworkable and impracticable to spill blood, disfigure and mutilate for wanting to selflessly-serve the people as we have been experiencing in our clime. It does not make sense for anyone to snatch ballot-boxes, burn INEC properties and kill fellow human beings—for wanting to become a public-slave. Take for instance, the President of Nigeria, Governors, Senators, Ministers… are supposed [...]
