Nnamdi Kanu’s nuclear weapon and the road to self-destruction

Sadly, it isn’t the so called “marginalisation” that may lead to another civil war in Nigeria. It is IGNORANCE. The weapon of FEAR is being deployed across the Nigerian space. Imaginary enemies are being created from North, South, East and West. The creators of the imaginary enemies are protected from the implosion that will emerge from misleading an IGNORANT mass. How else [...]

Good civil servants are usually DEAD!

Public service is a vocation. It is a call to rise above the self and serve the public. This public service ethos is often not understood or is at best taken for granted. This is especially so in a situation where the primary goal is to extract as much personal gains as possible from the proverbial national cake.Abuja, as the [...]

Behind the pilgrimages to Abuja House

In Nigeria, we have incredible appetite for the dramatic. Irrespective of how uncomplicated an issue or situation is, Nigerians will build a muddled plot around it and end up confusing themselves and as many people of the world as get interested.A mortal being, who has seen and fought many wars and is possibly closer to 90 than his official 74 [...]

It is not very often you are called upon to be part of a conversation that involves a behemoth and a global giant (not in size as per land mass or population) but with credibility built over the decades, I’m writing this piece aboard an African bird with a Livery that is authentically African and that is Ethiopian Air which [...]

The art of managing the truth

Wit is the horse on which words ride and vice versa. In one of his expansive moments, MKO would joke that one of his unfulfilled childhood dreams was to be a doctor. Why? [...]

Buhari’s reunion with his media team

I was really excited on Saturday when I received news of the eventual visit of President Muhammadu Buhari’s media team to him in London. I had always felt that the exclusion of the media team from the London medical vacation and the various visits practically undermined the presidential media office, and created the space for the mismanagement of the communication [...]
