Echoing TY Danjuma to avoid being arrested

In Nigeria, it is not what is said, it is who says it. When an unknown man says it, it would be called hate speech, but when a man of both influence and affluence says it, it would be called a national advice. If a poor man was to make this statement: “the armed forces are not neutral. They collude [...]

    Lawless leaders cannot produce law-abiding citizens

Lawless leaders cannot produce law-abiding citizens

In leadership and nation-building, like begets like. The leaders determine the kind of citizens that a nation would have in her possession. If the leaders are lawless, it is impossible for the citizens to be law-abiding. It is hypocrisy for leaders to make the laws that they aren’t going to submit to. The law that binds that led should be [...]

The hottest ‘drama’ in the house of representatives

Three days ago, I was opportune to wholeheartedly watch the video of a woman (Hadiza Akpoti) who went to “the green chamber,” the House of Representatives to uncover the corruption that has crippled “Ajaokuta Steel” for years. While she was speaking vociferously—with facts and figures, mentioning some big-names that are stronger Institutions in Nigeria, I shook my head because I [...]

    Made in Lagos mistake

Made in Lagos mistake

It behooves me to start by saying that Mr. Akinwumi Ambode and his team of creative think-tanks are not doing badly, running a State that has a trademark of excellence. Lagos is not only “The Centre of Excellence,” we are equally exporting excellence to the ends of the earth. Our culture is being extensively copied, our movies are being largely [...]

Dapchi and Chibok: A tale of two identical presidents

One major issue that makes me suppurate continually is our people’s inability to ask intelligent questions on some obvious issues in our nation. This makes it look as if they have been turned to mere puppets and are being controlled by some puppeteers—who are daily living and sleeping far away from all the problems wrestling the poor as Hulk Hogan. [...]

You can be a poor citizen of Nigeria and not know

Asiwaju Adekunle Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s wife did say that the poor still trusts and supports PMB. The question is: who precisely are the poor citizens of Nigeria? One, they are the ones who are hard-up, underprivileged and poor in knowledge, poor in money, poor in coherent decision-making, poor in wisdom…, so in other words, those who still trust and support [...]

    Nigeria: A nation governed by vague promises

Nigeria: A nation governed by vague promises

First-world countries are excellently being governed by well thought-out plans accompanied with both smart-work and hardwork while third world countries are being poorly governed by vague promises. From Kano to Kaduna, from Oyo to Ondo, from Benue to Borno, from Sokoto to Zamfara, the story is the same—Nigeria is being daily governed by vague promises since 1960. Why do politicians [...]

Rochas Okorocha’s statue crumbles as a pack of cards

I am a very enthusiastic observer of political happenings across the planet earth and I do know it like I do know my fingers that the sort of politics we are playing in Nigeria cannot deliver a true prosperous nation. It is the breed of politics that puts shelter on the big-head of mediocrity, greed and nepotism.Our adaptation of politics [...]

Mrs Maryam Abacha, Mrs Aisha Buhari and President Buhari

After relocating to Kano following the passing on of her controversial husband, Mrs. Abacha regrettably said and I quote verbatim: “All they were telling us was that everything was okay. We never knew they did not like us.” My goal here is not to x-ray how they spent their days in the corridors of power, but my objective here is [...]

    Mr President, who will reconcile aggrieved Nigerians?

Mr President, who will reconcile aggrieved Nigerians?

A people who do not know the true purpose of leadership and political power will continue to move in a cycle. Unless we want to deceive ourselves, from the highest to the lowest, we do not know the true purpose of leadership and political power. In Nigeria, leadership and political power are only used for selfish reasons. As an effect [...]

    President Buhari cannot change Nigeria as she currently is

President Buhari cannot change Nigeria as she currently is

Most of our people do not understand that holding President Buhari accountable does not mean that we are endorsing the PDP. Part of my own civic responsibility is to publicly and objectively hold President Buhari and his team accountable, but that does not mean I am endorsing the PDP. All our religious and sectional citizens need to understand this. For [...]

Nigeria: A nation where the economy grows stronger while the citizens groan

President Buhari has made history as the first C-in-C in power when the precious citizens of Nigeria suffered for months to access PMS. The ongoing fuel scarcity started in the Month of November 2017 and till this moment; our people are still suffering to buy FUEL for 200naira per litre in both Lagos and Ogun States. I am told it is [...]

Nigeria: Overpampered child of an atypical benevolent father

For the first time ever, more than half of the world’s populace is having their abode in cities, not rural areas. However, only 12% of these people are exposed to levels of airborne particle pollution that meet the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, these cities can be found in Canada and Iceland. Meanwhile, half of the planet’s mega-cities and their [...]

Benue killings: Open advise to President Buhari

A well-handled disaster can reinforce and strengthen an incumbent president. And on the condition that it is not well handled, an incumbent and a serving president will certainly and definitely live to regret it. Political leaders who know their onions are intelligent enough to employ times of crisis to bond with brokenhearted and anguished fellow citizens. As an effect of [...]

The silent majority of angry Nigerians

Backtracking a little, against all odds and expectations, Donald Trump won the presidential election to become the 45th President of the United States. For many, the result was startling and not up to scratch. On the morning of November 8th, most polling agencies gave Hillary Clinton at least 70% probability of victory. The last polls in Florida, North Carolina, and [...]

    Mr president, restore the lost public trust before it is too late

Mr president, restore the lost public trust before it is too late

Immediately President Buhari won the last presidential election, I set an agenda for him, as an effect of my many years of experience within the context of nation building. I told Mr. President that every President who served before him betrayed the public trust. And without it being restored, he would have a bumpy, bouncy and potholed ride. I told [...]
