The disaster called ‘Buharinomics’

Nothing unites citizens like a prosperous commonwealth. A country without prosperity is a country at war with itself. History is a guide: The Greek Empire was progressively united when the commonwealth was prosperous for all. When the Roman Empire became more prosperous for all citizens, it replaced the Greek; imperial Greece was no longer prosperous for all its citizens. Nigeria is at [...]

How will the Buhari administration end?

I would have been surprised if the Buhari government had distanced itself from Nasir el-Rufai's diplomatic and security blunder. By supporting him, the Buhari administration has confirmed to the world leaders who could have been in doubt that, actually, el-Rufai spoke Buhari's mind and that what he said should be taken as the official opinion of the government. You see, to [...]

    Atiku’s plan is what the economy needs

Atiku’s plan is what the economy needs

No modern capitalist economy allows its forex management policy to be in the hands of just one man – one man so powerful that he decides who gets the forex and how much. It's even worse where the one man in question is not only unelected but came directly from one of the country's commercial banks. And with this immense power, [...]

Churchill Okonkwo’s unfounded claims can’t stop Nigerians from voting for Atiku

Whenever I pick my pen to write, the first question that comes to mind is: What is the good intellectual message I am going to send to the reader? And this simple question has always formed the very basis of every piece I have authored since 1979. Yes, there are cases you can’t help but allow your emotions to conflict [...]

Strong currency destroys jobs as it encourages importation

Whenever I hear some of our economists proposing a stronger naira, I wonder what economic development theory on which they are basing their argument. I'm not only strongly opposed to this kind of economics; I always try to do so with enough convincing evidence to prove my case.  To believe that the strength of any economy is dependent on the strength [...]

Rewane, this is Atiku’s plan for NNPC

Speaking recently as part of his agenda to overhaul the whole economy and position it for double-digit growth, Atiku Abubakar announced his readiness to privatise the country’s state-owned refineries. As a highly successful businessman, Atiku understands that it is only by transferring all our moribund and inefficiently managed state-owned enterprises to private sector hands that we can stop spending trillions [...]

    Why Buhari might jail Tinubu if he won again

Why Buhari might jail Tinubu if he won again

Ahmed Bola Tinubu is arguably the self-proclaimed leader of the Yoruba in Nigerian politics. It couldn’t be more obvious than during the 2015 presidential election when he got many Yoruba to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari so literally worshipped him that had Tinubu sneezed, Buhari would have easily caught cold.   But once Buhari became president, the humiliation and side-lining [...]

    How Atiku bests Buhari

How Atiku bests Buhari

President Buhari’s condition is very typical to one suffering from amnesia. Or the absolute fault of his handlers who forgot so quickly how he eventually got so lucky to becoming president in 2015. It’s unbelievable how quickly it has been forgotten that Buhari tried his luck in 2003, 2007, and 2011 and did so failing woefully. What a short memory they [...]

Whistleblowing gone wrong: My case with NERC

We all are happy that the promise by the federal authorities to reward anyone who helps to find looted funds seems to be yielding fruit. If the government keeps its promise to give them 5% of the loot, at least two whistleblowers so far will be hundreds of millions of naira richer soon. Long before this reward system came, however, some [...]
