Expectations from Otti

By Godswill Okiyi Without any intrigue or manipulations, which has always been the bane of Nigeria politics, conventional wisdom suggests that Alex Otti, the gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Abia State will emerge victorious in April 11, 2015 Gubernatorial Elections taking place in Nigeria. This does not go to say that the other parties shall not do [...]

2015 presidential poll: The Islamisation scam

BY OMOTOLU ADEBAYO ONABOLU One of the most controversial things placed before Nigerians during the run up to the just concluded presidential elections was the recording of a sermon delivered by one Bosun Emmanuel.

Change promised

BY OLUWASEYI ABIDOYE I feel Nigeria has come to light with the true meaning of choice. The just-concluded presidential election clearly validates this. People were tired; tired of failed promises and promises renewed only to fail again. This no doubt had become a depressing trend. Sixteen years under the PDP were marked with many oversights and many more decisions that plagued the masses [...]

A memorable Saturday with Akin Ambode

BY ODUNAYO AKINSIJU It is not so much of a walk in the park as it is a long, hard haul to the top with a man who looks set, perhaps destined, to becoming the next governor of Lagos State. I am talking about Akinwunmi Ambode, the 51-year-old chartered accountant who is contesting the Lagos State governorship on the platform of [...]

The Machiavellian jihad

By Alhazai Baban-Sumayya There’s something about Islam that even the Muslims themselves often misconstrue - despite its casting jurisprudentially in black and white. The end doesn’t justify the means in Islam. This is irrespective of the righteousness of intention the performer of an action harbours.In Islam, a believer is compelled to use clean water to prepare ablutions before a prayer. If oil is [...]

What could cause another shift of the March 28 poll?

BY OLUMIDE ADENMOSUN I am no politician. I have not even decided on who to vote for as my next president. As events unfold, I am sure I will be decisive by the eve of the proposed election date. But then, a part of me, as a young scientist, keeps wondering what could possibly take off the minds of Nigerians from [...]

However, the key issue that must be stated here is that the election will be a straight “penalty shoot-out” between the incumbent party, PDP and the main [...]

Luckier than Saul, Fayose needs Solomon’s wisdom not to end like him

BY OLUKAYODE THOMAS Christians and followers of other religion are probably familiar with the story of Saul, the son of Kish, the first King of the Jews.From the tribe of Benjamin, the least of the 12 tribes of Israel, Saul did not in any way qualify to be chosen as King. When the Jews cried for one, the Almighty God, in [...]

Chibok girls: President Jonathan’s election joker or burden

BY JAMES YEKU The recent and sudden urgency that has facilitated the Nigerian military’s expurgation of terrorist activities in the country’s North-East would have been an epochal and celebrated march against Islamist insurgency had the Chibok girls not been pawns all along in the political chessboard of the Nigerian State. It is almost a year, and just some days before Nigerians [...]

The tragedy of Nigeria’s journalism

By Godwin Onyeacholem For anyone who truly lays claim to the practise of journalism in Nigeria, this is the time to shield the face from a big shame. It is a season of great disappointment and embarrassment. Not to talk of immeasurable sorrow and unrelieved nausea. This period really induces vomiting. And, boy, does journalism on this space stink!To be fair, [...]

Re: Soludo, Fayemi and Buhari’s ‘experts’

BY KUNLE DANIELS The above titled speech by Mr. Chuks Iloegbunam on Page 19 Vanguard newspapers of February 3, 2015 tells the tale of the stumble and fall of emergency ‘commentators on national issues’ as the writer describes himself. With the title, one had thought he was going to read of another interesting and progressive contribution to the erudite and earth-shaking [...]
