Professor Yakubu perceptibly doesn’t respect Nigerians

It was shameful and shocking enough for the last Saturday elections to be postponed in the wee hours of the 16th of February, 2019, but more discreditable and appalling was the way some bootlicking and politicians-worshipping citizens reacted to the ignoble occurrence that make the whole world shook their head—in pity for us. What a glib and flippant nation we [...]

    Buhari: Promise-breaker or promise-keeper?

Buhari: Promise-breaker or promise-keeper?

Over the years, I have found out that politicians in Nigeria offhandedly and casually make lofty-promises that they indubitably know they would do nothing about, because they know that many Nigerians are naïve and they do not keep campaign promises. In fact, most religious Nigerians think it is a “sin” to hold public-office-holders accountable, even within the confines of our [...]

    Where is el-Rufai’s report on restructuring?

Where is el-Rufai’s report on restructuring?

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is indisputably and indubitably going to have a lot of problems with Nigerians on the condition that he wins, because he daily makes promises (that he knows cannot fulfill) as general Buhari was making promises when he too was thirsty and hungry for power. There is nothing politicians cannot promise when they are thirsty for power! They [...]

    Who pays when Buhari and Osinbajo travel for campaign events?

Who pays when Buhari and Osinbajo travel for campaign events?

To start with, forget about what frantic and power-driven politicians are telling you, this year’s presidential election is going to be the toughest in the narration of our nascent democracy. The two major contestants are fighting the greatest battle of their life. Both Atiku and Buhari cannot run again for the highest office in the land—after this year, 2019. Buhari [...]

    Nigerian electorate deserve how they are being poorly governed

Nigerian electorate deserve how they are being poorly governed

Some years ago, I was discussing football with a lad who was about eleven (11) years old. After going back and forth on the round-leather game, I ended up asking him, “What foreign club are you supporting?” To which he quickly responded, “I am an Arsenal fan!” I said, “Why are you still supporting Arsenal Football Club (Arsenal FC), seeing [...]

The night Mr. President had a bad day

I need to first tell off those who allowed Mr. President to attend “the Candidates” last night. It seemed PMB was dead tired and as an effect of this, I doubt if he heard correctly virtually every question asked him by Kadaria Ahmed—the woman—who anchored the  “the Candidates,” town-hall meeting which was aired live on NTA.Also, it seems President [...]

    Nigeria’s politics of thugery and two-facedness

Nigeria’s politics of thugery and two-facedness

There is no political party (either dead or alive) in Nigeria that does not make use of thugs to either get to power or remain in power and it did not start in 1999! Those who understand where we are coming from can identify with the dirty-issue I am raising here. As long as the politics of thugery continues to [...]

    Dino Melaye, Nigeria’s version of Prophet Elijah

Dino Melaye, Nigeria’s version of Prophet Elijah

Our Police men only wait for the rich to surrender, but when it comes to the poor and voiceless citizens of Nigeria, they would swoop on them as bees, even without any search warrant being put on show! Some policemen have been ‘worshipping’ both day and night—outside the fence of Senator Dino Melaye, waiting for him to willingly surrender himself [...]

    Buhari, guns and bullets cannot end terrorism in north-eastern Nigeria

Buhari, guns and bullets cannot end terrorism in north-eastern Nigeria

In 2009, when terrorism started in Nigeria and our people were blowing themselves up, we were lying to ourselves that Nigerians can never blow themselves up. We even came up with an ugly lie that we were the happiest people on earth, but this is the question we failed to ask ourselves: how can a people be the happiest, who [...]

    Boss and Osinbajo: Selling same falsehood to two different ethnic groups

Boss and Osinbajo: Selling same falsehood to two different ethnic groups

Politicians are now traversing the length and extensiveness of Nigeria, selling lies to our people and those who are illiterate, when it comes to our own version of shallow politics—are buying those lies. From the highest to the lowest levels, within the context of politics, lies are flying everywhere—lies enwrapped in the swaddling cloth of vain promises. When politicians are [...]

    It will still be ‘Egypt’ in 2019, if the pendulum swings to PDP or APC

It will still be ‘Egypt’ in 2019, if the pendulum swings to PDP or APC

Each time I hear, “in 2019, we are not going back to Egypt,” I cringe and wince. The question is; what’s the difference between the PDP and APC? Absolutely nothing! They are all in power for what they can get, not what they can give. Show me one politician—who is in power because of the common man. Not even PMB [...]

Buhari’s administration speaks from two sides of the mouth

For the umpteenth time, I do wish President Muhammadu Buhari, the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (GCFR) an impressive 76th birthday. Now that the birthday party is over, it is important and imperative that we return to the sole business that affects those who daily walk all the dusty streets of our country — nation building.  While [...]

    Who’s the pioneer of fake news in modern-day Nigeria?

Who’s the pioneer of fake news in modern-day Nigeria?

I agree –from top to bottom that fake news can cause what is called—national conflagration, but it is beyond Alhaji Lai Mohammed and the APC as a whole to complain and whine about fake news. They strategically and excellently sowed the seed of fake news and now that the harvest is coming to them in unstinted and bountiful fold, instead [...]

If you want to kill a product, give it to Oshiomhole to sell for you

The only political party (almost certainly) on this continent that is as proud as Nebuchadnezzar is the All Progressives Congress (APC). They can win elections almost without everyone in Nigeria! When the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) became so fat and obese, they ballyhooed and touted that they would remain in power for decades, but all of a sudden, a corporate [...]

    Atiku and Buhari: Between the devil and deep blue sea

Atiku and Buhari: Between the devil and deep blue sea

Our modern day heroes and heroines are those who have taken it upon themselves to consistently speak the truth to power, without being rude. They have refused to toe the line of those—who daily worship the current President of Nigeria because they do know that he is a man like all of us and he has glaring weak areas. While PMB’s [...]

Ambode’s Lagos: A beautiful picture of an ugly state

Last week Friday, I saw one of the posters of Jimi Agbaje, an on and off politician and one of the highlights of his campaign is freedom. He is promising Lagosians freedom! When I saw it, I laughed, I was not surprised though. We are in the season when lies fly everywhere as sparks when a welder is working on [...]
