    The prophesy of Fashawe’s mum on Atiku

The prophesy of Fashawe’s mum on Atiku

The emergence of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the Presidential Candidate for the PD.P. has compelled me to re-read a book on him by a colleague Onukaba Adinoyi Ojo (1960-2017). The 338 page book was published in 2006 by Africana Legacy Press. An autographed copy of the book was given to me by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on November 8, 2013. Mr. [...]

    Is possessing US visa a pre-requisite for Nigerian presidency?

Is possessing US visa a pre-requisite for Nigerian presidency?

The title of this essay is elicited by the fact that the predilection of the All Progressive Congress, APC about the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar seems to be whether he has a valid visiting visa to the USA.Ideally, since the continued occupancy of Aso Rock villa seat of power by president Muhammadu Buhari and the APC [...]

Justice for Queen’s College girls

In a week that saw 113 women out of 161 who graduated with first class honours at the Law School, we must pause and weep for Praise Sodipo and two other girls of Queen’s College, Lagos who died 17 moths ago due to negligence of the school authorities.But we must not only weep, we must demand for justice for the [...]

Yusuf: The insolent child of impunity

Those tempted to view corruption only in materialist terms, overlooking the abstract subversion of norms and values, will perhaps be forced to have a rethink by simply following the farcical drama currently unfolding at the National Health Insurance Scheme.Obviously a product of nepotism, Yusuf instinctively has been feeding the web as well. Among his first actions in office was said [...]

The ‘Oshiomhole must go’ coalition  

Chief John Odigie Oyegun, former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), must be having a good laugh wherever he is. If he is just finishing a meal, he can afford to pick his teeth and belch from the deepest part of his biological system, and even turn up his nose as he asks for a glass of water. [...]

    Buhari is playing politics with lives of Nigerians!

Buhari is playing politics with lives of Nigerians!

Our flags are supposed to be ordered to be flying at half-staff—almost on every single day of the year, provided our politicians were a people—who value human life, but it is clear as water in Nigeria that both the leaders and led do not value human life two hoots. Why am I saying that our flags are supposed to be [...]

Drug abusers deserve a second chance from UNILAG

Success in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and in the follow-up internal test of an institution are usually enough to qualify a candidate for admission into a Nigerian university. Not anymore, particularly if the University of Lagos (UNILAG) is the candidate’s first choice. As Mrs. Taiwo Oloyede, Principal Assistant Registrar, Communication Unit, of the university announced days ago during [...]

    Posers for 2019 electioneering

Posers for 2019 electioneering

Flowery use of language and grand sloganeering are staples of electioneering almost everywhere. As such, oratory and poetic skills have always been assets that are helpful for a typical politician on the hustings – even the average or outrightly incompetent one. With words and slogans, he could build fanciful bubble castles that would be a mirage to actualise when he [...]

    Unnecessary Kanu-phobia

Unnecessary Kanu-phobia

Nnamdi Kanu always strikes while the iron is hot. His reappearance after more than one year has dominated discussions online and offline, generating anxiety in some quarters and ecstasy in others. Some political candidates are already trembling, for the great crowd puller could make the difference between success and failure at least in the south-east. I guess even Peter Obi, [...]

    Beyond Fayose: The future of Ekiti

Beyond Fayose: The future of Ekiti

I spent the better part of last Tuesday, October 16, focusing on developments in Ekiti State. It was the day of John Kayode Fayemi’s return to office as Governor of Ekiti State and his inauguration for a second-term, after an interregnum of four years, 2014-2018 during which former Governor Ayo Fayose reigned. It was also on that day that Fayemi’s [...]
