    Buhari, replace service chiefs now

Buhari, replace service chiefs now

In spite of all the evil that Boko Haram, its affiliates, splinters and other opportunistic groups, perpetrate, Nigeria still does not seem to be doing much to arrest the situations. Of course, there are constant talks of procurement of military hardware and boastful accounts of military accomplishments in the prosecution of the war against insurgents and bandits, attacks by these criminals [...]

Buhari and Femi Adesina – what are you doing to Nigeria’s future?

I was rereading Mr Femi Adesina's vehement pronouncement at Mrs Farida Waziri's book launch and the part that got me was his claim that Buhari declared his assets openly in 2015 but chose not to declare openly in 2019 and that it was his (Buhari’s) prerogative since the constitution does not say he should declare openly. He also said that [...]

President Buhari, Nigeria is at tipping point

In many ways the massacre of scores of persons and abduction of many more by Boko Haram insurgents at a checkpoint in the town of Auno, some 25 kilometres to Maiduguri the capital city of Borno state represents a turning point not just in president Buhari’s war against insecurity, but more significantly on the direction that the administration is taking [...]

Ganduje’s three special assistants on streetlights and Sanusi’s bombshell

People can say anything about the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi Lamido, but one thing that is not likely to be taken away from him is his frankness - always honest and direct. He speaks the truth, at least, to his fellow Northerners. His candour is often condemned by the Northern oligarchy, but he doesn’t seem to care. His speech [...]

What has the supreme court done?

Not a few politicians are beginning to have second thoughts about what may be the sure path to electoral success in future. The traditional model, which was godfather plus moneybags, and then crisscrossing the country squawking like fowls with broken beaks, appears to be old school and in rapid decline. After Hope Uzodinma’s unexpected installation as Imo State governor and Douye [...]

    Is Buhari really in charge?

Is Buhari really in charge?

A few hours ago, a memo written by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno was leaked by a faceless inner-circle member, who sleeps and wakes up—on the inside of Aso Rock. Monguno intrepidly accused Abba Kyari of taking security-decisions without the knowledge of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria! The memo also reveals that Abba Kyari makes [...]

    EFCC, your fight against corruption should start with your Twitter handle 

EFCC, your fight against corruption should start with your Twitter handle 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is as flawed as Ibrahim Magu, its acting chairman, who has revised the agency to a personality cult. The foibles and defects of Magu are no longer distinguishable from the character of this once illustrious institution. Where Magu falters, the EFCC stumbles. No doubt, a scathing detraction to professionalism in Nigeria is the customisation [...]

Of fallacy and fawny handling

When President Muhammadu Buhari returned from Ethiopia, where he recently attended the Head of States meeting, and flew straight to Maiduguri to commiserate and sympathise with the people of Borno State on insecurity, many Nigerians heaved a sigh of relief. Many felt encouraged because, in the spate of increased insecurity all over the country, the people needed reassurance from the [...]

Ihedioha vs Uzodinma: The untold story

The outcome of the 2019 elections in Imo state has reverberated in and outside Nigeria with a lot of controversies. Expectedly, the saga has created heroes and villains. However, the real story and casualties behind the scenes are often missed. As Ihedioha and Uzodinma approach the Supreme Court for a revision of the verdict on the 18th of February, it [...]

From mass weddings to special assistants on street lights: Political genius in Nigeria

Political genius has flown under the radar for far too long in Nigeria. There is a need to appreciate and publicize the level of political acumen and sagacity from the top echelons of power. Organizing mass weddings is one cardinal part of political genius in Nigeria. It fulfils the divine command to procreate and replenish the earth. Why would anyone [...]
