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 Igbo crime culture

The Igbo crime culture

In the sweltering heat of a serial lynching and killing of Igbo citizens in Asia in 2013, I wrote an article entitled, ‘The Igbo fallacy’. In it, I appealed to the Igbo to de-emphasise the culture of profligacy, decadent opulence, debauchery and vanity which fuels the pursuit of crime by their own.I am compelled to revivify the article here, but [...]

    Abuja as oxygen for Biafra

Abuja as oxygen for Biafra

As always, every president in Nigeria in our recent history comes in to the office to face a different battle with little time for serious governance. If you think I am wrong, wait for it. For Olusegun Obasanjo, it was militia groups combined—Oodua Peoples Congress, Egbesu boys, Movement for the Actualization of Biafra, Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force, Arewa youths. [...]

In times like this, Nigeria needs real statesmen

In Nigeria, heroism is an easy milestone. The rest of the sane world would laugh at us if they knew. In other parts of the world that we belong to, you cannot gain the heroic status unless you did something really noble and outstanding, and mostly in the service of humanity.But not Nigeria.

Ethnicity: The hidden face of corruption in Nigeria

On the face of it, anti-corruption is a good thing. It is desirable; and therefore should be supported. It is very difficult to argue against this stance.

It is neither straightforward nor narrow, as often presented.Corruption goes beyond stealing public funds, although it is a major understanding of [...]

Nihotour: The clipped tourism bill and lessons from there

Indeed, the public debate on the bill would have become a boxing ring, to not only to knock out Chika Balogun, the Director-General of NIHOTOUR team but [...]
