Anti Gay Law And Matters Arising – Babs Iwalewa

The President & the CBN Governor: in defense of institutions- Ayisha Osori

I thought I had nothing more to say. That after 5 years of writing weekly, everything that I could possibly say about Nigeria, had already been said. But I find that when it comes to Nigeria – heartbreak country –there will always be new lows. There have been many things written and said about the removal of the Governor of ... Read More »

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi: The Unravelling Of An Anti-Hero – Joseph Olayemi

  In literature as in life abounds a multiplicity of characters who in their inordinate assessment of their capabilities define an exalted trajectory of their roles and importance to the advancement of society or organisations. Such characters in their full flight of fancy reject every reasonable attempt to restrain or divert them from their headlong dash into the cavern of ... Read More »

If I Were Gen. Sani Abacha’s Son – Mustapha M.O

  Can there be someone in this country of ours today, especially a commoner in his youthful age that will not want to be the son of the late Head of state?

Terrorism: Time To Stand And Fight For Nigeria – Babatope Adeniyi Aiku

Amidst political bickering and fraud, thousands of Nigerians die daily due to the inability of both the Federal government and security forces to curb continuous insurgence.

STIR NIGERIA: Post-Presidential Media Chat, Borno Massacre & Centenary Celebrations – Adeleke David

Before you ask me if you have become a political writer or blogger, let me inform you that there are three kinds of people: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened.

If Rev. Awasum Is Not An Apostle for Christ, then He Is An Apostle for Colonialism? – Boh Herbert

If Rev. Awasum Is Not An Apostle for Christ, then He Is An Apostle for Colonialism? – Boh Herbert

Short of being able to witness from the altar of God, Rev. Awasum seems to have enrolled as a disciple of colonialism. Here is the colonialism gospel he now preaches. He wrote: “Colonization was the seed of enlightenment and education that liberated primitive Cameroonians/Africans and transformed their lives forever.” Ma mami eeeeeh! Rev. Awasum argues that it is instead Cameroonians ... Read More »

Sanusi’s Suspension: Jonathan and Co Ought To Bury Their Heads In Shame – Femi Fani-Kayode

This government has once again shown that it has no shame and that it is utterly bereft of any semblance of decency or morality. A man blows the whistle and exposes the fact that 20 billion USD has been stolen and instead of commending him and promoting him he is accused of wrongdoing, criminalised, vilified and suspended. It is only ... Read More »

Slave Mentality: Nigerian Posts Advert Thanking President For Appointing A Yoruba Man As Chief of Staff

One of my twitter friends Akintayo Adisa @akintayoadisa copied me in this. I could not help but share it. This is 2014 but people still post shameless things like this. Like Feyi Fawehinmi said, “we are finished in Nigeria.” Many are not likely to argue against that. How is this act different from what a slave would do? Read More »

Lest We Forget – El-Amin Yusuf Alronawy

  Lest we forget, we are in a country called Nigeria. So one should be careful of what he/she may critically say about this administration that plans to land in jail whosoever shall criticise its style and conducts.
