    Why Buhari is daily losing ground

Why Buhari is daily losing ground

I have said this before and I’d say it again: The major and foremost reason that is likely going to cause Mr. President to lose in the coming presidential election is the breed of people he has chosen to surround himself with. It is either they are not telling him the truth or Mr. President is not interested in listening [...]

The more they vilify Atiku, the more they demarket Buhari

Two days ago, I said to a few people that it is impracticable for Mr. Garba Shehu to say that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is corrupt and a security threat and we all laughed about it. A few minutes ago, Mr. Garba Shehu released a few lines to the public space, responding to what Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo said (while receiving Atiku [...]

If PMB’s government has pulled you out of poverty, raise up your hands

The unsightly drama (governorship party-primary) in Lagos State that lasted for some dayssucceeded in dwarfing some other occurrences in Nigeria, especially the ongoing bloodletting in the City of Jos, Plateau State. Plateau State is considered a second home to me, because I once lived there and till now, I do have some families living and working on the Plateau. As [...]

    Buhari’s 4th Independence Day celebration and the groaning of Nigerian people

Buhari’s 4th Independence Day celebration and the groaning of Nigerian people

Going down memory lane, the flag of Nigeria between 1914 and 1960—was a British blue ensign with a green Star of David surrounding a Tudor Crown (later changed to a St Edward’s Crown in 1953) with the white word “Nigeria” under it on a red disc. It was adopted by the Colony and protectorate of Nigeria—following the amalgamation of the [...]

    What President Buhari possibly doesn’t know

What President Buhari possibly doesn’t know

The PDP began to fall from grace to grass when party members and their leaders started making arrogant statements as: “we would still win without you…” Close to two years now, I have observed the ruling party very closely and sadly, I have been able to see that the APC is a sad repeat of the past. Both online and [...]

The latest low from PMB: Indefinite suspension of Nigeria Air logo, not Nigeria Air

To start with, we cannot truly move forward as a nation until we start putting politics where it belongs, asking critical questions that will take us out of the current woods we have found ourselves. Each time we allow politics to block our collective reasoning; it sets us backward as a people. Our bane in Nigeria is the version of [...]

Kemi Adeosun’s resignation: The nakedness of a nation

On (the) Friday morning, 14th of September, 2018, it was quietly leaked by one of the national dailies—that the former Hon. Minister of Finance had resigned after about two months that the news of her fake NYSC exemption certificate was first divulged to the whole world by an online medium. As an effect of this feat, Nigerians began to shower [...]

    PMB: The first president of northern Nigeria

PMB: The first president of northern Nigeria

Those who blindly approve and endorse everything Buhari does are doing a good job, provided it is putting food on their table and tossing some coins into their pocket, but if nothing is coming from it, then they are not wise, because even Mr. President—who professes to love Nigeria more than all of us is not in power, serving pro [...]

    Lagos: Mega city or mega slum?

Lagos: Mega city or mega slum?

Each time it rains cats and dogs in Lagos, the mediocrity and patchiness of those who have ever been in leadership of Lagos come to the fore. At whatever time it rains heavily, it reveals how clueless the administrations of Bola Ahamed Tinubu, Babatunde Raji Fashola and Akinwumi Ambode are. I make bold to say that Lagos inconveniently sits on a [...]

    God, take our natural resources and give us functional human brains

God, take our natural resources and give us functional human brains

The nations that have natural resources in abundance but do not think and are languid and slothful will take them (natural resources) to the nations that do not have, but make use of their wits and creatively work-hard. In other words, the success of a nation and her people does not depend alone on the abundance of their natural resources [...]

    Atiku and Buhari: The rich also cry

Atiku and Buhari: The rich also cry

In 2011, a few days before the presidential election, a retired army general broke down in tears while lamenting the problems confronting Nigeria, same way every past president lamented before taking over power, either through bullets or ballots.The venue was the International Conference Centre, Abuja. General Buhari broke down in tears at the event organised by the party—to mark [...]

    True change begins from the top, not the bottom

True change begins from the top, not the bottom

Do I unbiasedly want PMB to pass on the baton of leadership? Yes, but my stance has nothing to do with him being lifeless as carelessly opined by President Donald Trump; I am just of the opinion that staying in power beyond 2019 is going to destroy the petite credibility he has left. Like Jose Mourinho (the current manager of [...]

    Foreign reserves rise, but standard of living falls

Foreign reserves rise, but standard of living falls

The fitness of the future president of Nigeria has nothing to do with trekking, covering 800 metres because that cannot solve any problem for the common man in the 21st century. It is not going to put food on the table of the common man. And it is also not going to get back to school, several millions of our [...]

    Like leaders, like followers: The greed factor

Like leaders, like followers: The greed factor

Each time an election is being conducted in Nigeria, it cuts through one’s heart how electorates allow themselves to be bought cheaply. Not long, I sat and reflected for hours—on the way electorates willingly allow themselves to be cheaply bought in Nigeria and I was able to see that it does not reflect ignorance and poverty. The truth is, both [...]

    Integrity romances corruption at midday: PMB’s only card for survival

Integrity romances corruption at midday: PMB’s only card for survival

To currently swim to the shore, without being drowned in both—our polity and politics, you would need to fight dirty and without any iota of veracity. Each time browbeaten and chained people attempt to fly the kite of the integrity of any man in our politics today, I just know that they are unwittingly ignorant. No man can truly hold [...]

    An ‘honorable’ lie from a senator on recess

An ‘honorable’ lie from a senator on recess

Current events happening in—both our polity and politics have revealed that those swimming in the pool of democracy are not likely going to deliver the Nigeria of our dreams. They do not have the naturalness, restraint, integrity and the mettle to deliver a great nation. It is not in them, so waiting for them to deliver a great nation will [...]
