Of cows, herdsmen and the silence of the Rock

What a world of difference a couple of months can make! In this case, 34 months since our President, Muhammadu Buhari made his now famous “I belong to no one” speech. For weeks, the circumstances that led to his emergence as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria remained the hottest topic on the burner for political pundits and talk [...]

    Before Nigeria becomes Somalia…

Before Nigeria becomes Somalia…

I got a call from a senior northern politician recently. He’s generally a man of peace and often calls to commend me anytime I write on “peace and unity”. But this was a different call. His tone was remarkably different and harsh as he spoke about the Benue killings. He spared little time for the obligatory I-like-your-article ice-breaker and rushed [...]

Dear Nigerian youth, everything shouldn’t be about the hustle

Dear Nigerian youth,I will be brief.Hello from the “woke side”.

Danger in CJN’s admonition on discussing ongoing legal proceedings

Contempt committed outside the court is a criminal offence and indeed could result in imprisonment. The offence of contempt is enshrined in common law and various criminal statutes. It forbids offensive publications which may interfere with pending litigation because it could impact on the parties’ right to fair hearing.It is against this background that I want to comment on the [...]

Lagos state and its Olusosun suicide mission

Lagos state is  regarded as a leading state in Nigeria in  term of good governance and infrastructural development. Lagos constant claims of  being a smart city is becoming a cliche.

The President appears surprised at the depth of outrage against him over the recent spate of violence across the country, especially the senseless killings by herdsmen in Benue State.He thinks that we should understand by now that he means well, that we [...]

Between Buhari and Kukah, Okogie, Onaiyekan et al
