Buhari must put an end to hate in the country

Here’s a very important issue President Mohammadu Buhari should address as he settles into his job: hate speeches. The president shouldn’t dismiss them as mere bigoted ranting.Hate speech, as we have seen in history, is often a precursor to mass violence.There were all kinds of quit notices issued to various ethnic groups and hate songs flying around while the president [...]

Return, resume and resign?

If you believe in the evolution theory, you are most likely to believe that the loud calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to “return or resign” happened just like that. You would believe the campaign was a naturally occurring phenomenon generated from a single “cell” of discontent before acquiring a life of its own. But if you believe in creationism and [...]

    Buhari: The return of the Mack!

Buhari: The return of the Mack!

I distilled the title of this article from, ‘Return of the Mack’, a song done and released in 1996 by Mark Morrison, a British singer. The song was a meteoric hit. It was Morrison’s comeback song, and his biggest hit to date.The return of President Muhammadu to Nigeria - after a long stay in the UK - is indubitably a [...]

I’ve been to London to see the king

Yes, I’ve been to London to see the King. The Lion King. But unlike the pussycat in the nursery rhyme, I didn’t frighten any mouse under the chair.Not a few tongues had wagged over the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari was outside the country on medical vacation for weeks on end, and no member of his media team was with [...]

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 [...]
