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 [...]

Ogbanje Nigeria Air was a hustle for the boys

Nigeria Air was still-birthed because it was never meant to reach parturition in the first place. It was a grand scam. A cash-out for the boys; though I fell for it.When Hadi Siriki, minister of aviation, displayed a nondescript logo announcing that Nigeria Air would launch in December, I became seized by national fervour. In my rapture, I praised the [...]

Paying for Sirika’s aborted flight of fancy

It’s not yet clear what finally did it or who. But it was clear, almost from the start, that the country could not bluff its way through this flight.Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, had mounted the problem maddeningly and by some curious twist of fate the incoming Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, would bear the brunt for it [...]

Between HSBC and Buhari

Since the report that HSBC, one of the world’s largest banking and financial services companies, took a dim view of the Buhari government’s economic policies, operatives and supporters of the government have been falling over themselves to give it back to the bank.

    PDP, APC are not an option — even APGA, Ojukwu’s baby, is now a fiefdom

PDP, APC are not an option — even APGA, Ojukwu’s baby, is now a fiefdom

A pesky problem of the Nigeria political milieu is the dominance of flatulent, gluttonous and dictatorial political parties. Political parties give complexion to politics. Hence, that our politics suffers “craw-craw” and monkey pox is largely due to the political parties.I believe the APC and the PDP are not a favourable option for the Nigerian people – in view of the [...]
