    Senator Adeyeye’s umbrage – facts or fiction?

Senator Adeyeye’s umbrage – facts or fiction?

In the past two weeks a very famous video clip has gone viral. It’s the video of Senator Professor Sola Adeyeye as he waxed philosophical on the floor of the Nigerian Senate. I decided to respond to him for several reasons, notably that Nigerians being very emotional people get carried away with great oratory while ignoring to dig for the [...]

    The role of governments in support of African arbitration

The role of governments in support of African arbitration

As at May 2016, there were at least 72 Arbitration institutions in Africa. Most of these institutions are privately run. By implication, arbitration is driven more by the efforts of private persons than by the efforts of government. While that is not in itself wrong, there are success stories in government-supported arbitral institutions. For instance, the Cairo Regional Centre for [...]

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 [...]

Why we get killed abroad and perish on the Mediterranean

The execution of the Nigerian woman in South Africa recently, the arrest of another five for armed robbery in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa are tripodal issues that call attention of Nigerians to their worth in the outside world. Eight Nigerians were earlier executed in Saudi Arabia in recent time and twenty [...]
