Buhari and the Hausa language

“Baba just fall my hand! Ha, wetin.”“Which Baba?”“Baba Bubu, the President of all Nigeria.”“In the spirit of this season, may Almighty Allah (SAW) grant him good health and quick recovery. It is part of our duty to pray for our leaders. Only infidels pray for evil.”“My friend, the fasting season has ended. Stop fasting after Ramadan. I am saying something [...]

Dear President Buhari, your voice note is a quit notice

On February 1, 2017, after a series of deliberations with a friend of mine, who is a consultant with one of the largest consulting firms in the world, we decided we would draw up a solution to the Nigerian problem, however feeble our ideas would be.We went through virtually all development roadmaps employed by Nigeria in her endless journey to [...]

    What about the six Epe students?

What about the six Epe students?

As I write this, it’s now 32 days that six students of Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, were kidnapped and possibly most of us have forgotten about them. Buffeted with political issues across the length and breadth of our country, one may pardon citizens for seemingly forgetting about these six students. It is understandable too why the kidnapping is [...]

FTAN and the price we must pay

It is a fact that when the cat is away, the mouse will play around. It is equally on same plank that in a family, there are pillars unto honour and dishonour, a blend and a mix so strange that mothers do wonder how God created them all.The story of Federation of Tourism Association of Nigeria (FTAN) is strange and [...]

Political correctness by Nigeria’s elites fuels secessionist agitations

In many ways, the elites (especially those who hold political office) in Nigeria are the country’s problem. They not only constitute the problem, on many occasions they add to it. Take for instance the current face-off between members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and an arrangement of Arewa Youths threatening to eject every Igbo resident in the north.Comments [...]

Osinbajo’s surge for national unity

When we celebrated the 24th anniversary of June 12 nearly two weeks ago, I was among those Nigerians who might have left deeply wondering how Nigerians graduated from a people who were willing to vote for you without caring what your religion or that of your running mate is, to a people that are sharply divided and their voting patterns only [...]

    Restructuring Nigeria without tears

Restructuring Nigeria without tears

Something is wrong with anybody who says there is nothing wrong with Nigeria. We all seem to agree that something is not working. We all seem to concur that this is not the best Nigeria can be. We all seem to believe that something major needs to be done for us to make progress. What we lack is a consensus [...]

    The challenge from the Senate

The challenge from the Senate

For the first time in many years, I’m hearing something positive coming from the hallowed chambers of the Nigerian Senate. In a resolution, penultimate week, the upper chamber of the legislature asked the federal executive to forward the report of the 2014 National Conference to it as an executive bill for urgent legislative action. It’s a relief. And anyone who [...]

Women in our world

Women are seen and touted as an important index in the world's development. One needs to just check global goals, from Millennium Development Goals to the present Sustainable Development Goals. The world's global noise continues to gain momentum and there seems to be no end in sight with regards to this. No one will deny the fact that women are smart, [...]
