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

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

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 [...]

    Who exactly hates Mr President?

Who exactly hates Mr President?

When late Chinua Achebe was publicized as one of the beneficiaries of the CFR award in 2004 by Obasanjo administration, he unequivocally rejected it, saying he did so as a protest and wanted it to serve as a “wake up call.” Achebe expressed a fastidious abhorrence with happenings in Anambra, his home state, where “a small clique of renegades, openly [...]

Nigeria: A nation of hilarious orders

To start with, I ask on behalf of the voiceless citizens of Nigeria: where in this world is Mr. Andrew Yakubu, ex GMD, NNPC, who was accused of stashing over 3billion naira in his house in Kaduna? After he was comically arrested, he was put behind bars for a few days. And this is December, 2017; Mr. Andrew has vanished [...]

    Atiku Abubakar’s return to an ‘irredeemable’ party

Atiku Abubakar’s return to an ‘irredeemable’ party

I do have nothing against the man Atiku Abubakar—as he switches political parties as a diaper. Politicians all over the world are fond of switching political parties to achieve their political dreams and aspirations. Even in the United States of America, politicians do switch political parties, so vilifying Atiku for returning to the party he once called “irredeemable” four (4) [...]

Insensitive leaders, docile and uninformed led

Mr. President freshly went to Kano State and the whole of Kano went berserk while in receipt of him. This has become the foremost yardstick that PMB is using to measure his effectiveness and performance in office. But what Mr. President and his team do not understand is that being popular and being effective are not one and same. No [...]

Don’t scrap SARS, reform it

When it comes to nation building issues, we cannot all sleep, facing same direction. On the condition that we all sleep, facing same direction, we would never be able to build the Nigeria of our dreams. While I will always pitch my tent with the masses, it is equally important to constantly and objectively look at varied crucial national issues [...]

The latest slogan in town: I weep for Nigeria

When the month of November was about retiring to bed, having labored productively for thirty days, a window was opened on a trend that has become so popular in recent times in our polity. The news of what’s transpiring in Libya about some Libyans selling some black Africans into slavery began to hit the world of social media some days [...]

The enemies in President Buhari’s camp

I have read through scores of articles in the last 365 days—unveiling some of the perceived enemies in the camp of Mr. President, but each time I read through those articles, it becomes clear to me as water that most of our people do not know the real masked-enemies in the camp of the strong man of veracity from Daura.
