President Buhari and Zainab Ahmed: Who is subsidising who?

I never knew that it is possible and feasible to become a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) without being licensed to practice in Nigeria. I will not be able to camp around this issue for so long a time because you know I am not schooled in both the spirit and letter of the law, but I appeal to every [...]

Parties beyond 2019 poll

Now that outcomes in about all outstanding constituencies under the 2019 general election cycle have been electorally – take note: not judicially – decided, attention must turn to life beyond the poll. While awaiting the final reports of the many international and domestic observers of those recent elections and, of course, the upshots of associated litigations, the Independent National Electoral Commission [...]

Nigeria and the hegemony of ideology

We marked the World Water Day on March 22 with a damning statistic: over 60 million Nigerians do not have access to safe drinking water. In simpler English, they get their water from unhealthy sources, such as streams and ponds. I will deliberately leave out the stinking statistics on the 47 million still practising open defecation and the 120 million [...]

Jibrin from Sudan, Atiku from Cameroon, but there are really no Nigerians

Before 1914, the geographical space called Nigeria existed in bifurcation – the northern and southern protectorates. And before the British savaged and carved out the area for immanent exploitation, there were thriving kingdoms, ethnic groups, cultures, traditions, and civilisations.

Leftists on ‘tribalism’: 70 years ago

At the beginning it was called “tribal politics”; then it became “ethnic politics”; and, now, it is evolving into “identity politics”. But the phenomenon remains what it has always been—from colonialism to all its bourgeois successors.

Judges should rebuild the Temple of Justice

There was a time, and it was not too long ago, when in many communities the name or job of a parent qualifies a child for kindness or disdain.In the qualification-by-association mindset, if one’s father or mother was a school teacher, the child was seen as disciplined and diligent.
