    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) [...]

    2019: Why your votes are a waste of time

2019: Why your votes are a waste of time

In Nigeria, the concept of political participation appears to have been reduced largely to the civic responsibility of voting on election day. Civic campaigners, political activists, and NGOs have concentrated a major focus of their efforts in “getting out the vote” campaigns. These groups and organisations, backed with a lot of international donor support are pushing the boundaries of voter [...]

Some of the complaints pertain to the barbaric killing of 18 Nigerian during an armed invasion of the Nigerian Embassy in Guinea Bissau on October 8, 2013. It is common knowledge that Nigerians living in South Africa have [...]

PDP’s umbrella without the south-west will suffer punctures

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may be in a tailspin. The outcome of Saturday’s national convention of the party shows it has more learning to do.  In fact, the PDP has not learnt from its defeat. The PDP is prodigiously “mammonised”. Money is the only denominator of the party.  I had thought that the PDP would absorb the south-west into its highest hierarchy (because [...]

    The crazy journey to Lampedusa

The crazy journey to Lampedusa

The world is sounding appalled and thoroughly shocked by the gory news emanating from Libya about the return to the slave trade era ended centuries ago, which specifically reigned from the 16th to 19th centuries. As it was when it began, Africa is the butt of this inhuman trans-Atlantic trade, but now, there is an intra-African slavery. Jolt was the [...]

Thou shall not underrate Atiku

For years, he was rejected at the polls and given a tag that demarketed him among the electorate. His opponents said they knew how to get people to vote against him — just dress him up in the uncomplimentary toga and voters would avoid him like a raging plague. He tried as much as he could to explain that what [...]

What piece of information did Tinubu gift Buhari in Abidjan?

It was quite gratifying seeing President Muhammadu Buhari display rare strength and character recently in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire’s capital. Strength because without betraying any sign of tiredness or weakness, he was engaged in one bilateral meeting after another, lasting well past midnight for the duration of the conference. And character as evident in the currency and depth of issues - [...]

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 [...]
