The Needless Xenophobia By Tony Ademiluyi

The rainbow nation as conceived by the vision of the Late Madiba Nelson Mandela was to be one that will be free from discrimination and a leveler for all to attain the acme of success through a platform that creates equal opportunity. The ugly idea of xenophobia was not part of the original package. How did the largest economy in Africa descend to this level of crude bestiality? Xenophobia had been a recurring decimal in South Africa even before the dismantling of the evil apartheid system in 1994. Between 1984 and the end of the hostilities in Mozambique, 250,000 and 350,000 people fled to South Africa and...

Rev. Christopher Akinola: Of Pastor Bosun’s Call, Buhari’s ‘Jihad’ And Christianity In Nigeria

Few months ago in Nigeria, around the time the constitutional conference was going on in Abuja, an audio message by a certain Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, who represented the Christian Association of Nigeria at the conference, began to make the rounds within and outside Nigeria. The audio message, amongst a number of things, described General Mohammadu Buhari, who was running for President, as an Islamic fundamentalist who, if elected, would Shariarize Nigeria. It also shared that, like in Turkey (ancient Ephesus), Christianity in Nigeria is on its way to obliteration through Jihad. Bosun claimed that Christians...

Benue Guber and The Dynamics of Politics In Benue South Senatorial Zone: The David Mark Challenge – Ushakuma Anenga

Benue south senatorial zone (zone C) comprises of nine Local Government Areas, six of which begin with letter O namely Otukpo, Ogbdibo, Okpokwu, Ohimini, Oju and Obi, while the remaining  three begin with letter A, Agatu, Ado and Apa. Oju and Obi are inhabited majorly by the Igedes, while the dominant Idomas occupy the other seven. Historically, the Idomas have felt marginalised by their co-tenants in the Benue valley, the Tiv people. Since the creation of the state in 1978, the Idomas have not beeng given the opportunity to rule the state in the capacity of Governor. After several failed promises, they...

A Tribute to Nigeria’s Social Media Army of Change – Abdulrahman Bala Abba @abbanani66

I want to begin with a quote from H.R.H Queen Rania of Jordan “Social media are a catalyst for the advancement of everyone's rights. It's where we're reminded that we're all human and all equal. It's where people can find and fight for a cause, global or local, popular or specialized, even when there are hundreds of miles between them.” Before March 28, 2015 Nigerians were millions of miles apart from our so called politicians and representatives. On that faithful day, Nigerians reminded our political elite that we are all equal, that even though we allow them misbehave, when pushed to the wall our venom...

‘Gbénga Sèsan (@gbengasesan): Now That You’ve Won: An Open Letter to the New Governing Party

I sat on the floor of my son's room, in tears. It was supposed to be a good day because I had invested resources in an election that meant a lot to me and the numbers coming in meant change -- electoral defeat of the incumbent President -- was certain. "That's just the beginning of change," I whispered in my soliloquy. "This new president must not mess up, we can't afford to go through this again soon," I heard myself say as I tried hard to keep my sobs as quiet as possible. Days later, we are seeing a similar scenario in many states across Nigeria. In fact, in one of the states, the incumbent was so...

Our Universities: Graveyards Or Launching Pads? By Oluwatobi Gbemisola

Over the years in Nigeria, there has been a sharp increase in the rate of sexual harassment in the higher institutions of learning. In a recent survey paid for by Women Against Rape, Sexual Harassment and Exploitation (WARSHE), 80 percent of 300 women questioned at four universities said sexual harassment was their top concern. Result and findings of a research conducted on tertiary institutions in the country showed that all categories of staff irrespective social and academic learning is involved in illegal sexual relationships, noting there was so much intimidation even among committee members. As there...

A Vote For Jimi Agbaje, A Vote For Asari-Dokubo, OPC By Erasmus Ikhide

Mr Jimi Agbaje, the Lagos PDP gubernatorial candidate for April 11th general election may have literarily lost his political deposit for the post with his unguided and repulsive utterances in far away London some time ago. Seen early as a buffer to counteract the less expansive AD, ACN and now APC governance since 1999 in the nation's commercial hub, Mr Agbaje crashed his burning ambition on the utter of political militancy.Mr. Agbaje virtual call to the Niger Delta militias or any other to arm in the event of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari's win in a foreign land is trajectory, if not anarchical to truncate...

Dear Lagosians, First let me thank you all for turning out to vote on the 28th March 2015 and for doing so peacefully to make history by electing the All Progressives Congress candidates in the Presidential and National Assembly elections. Once again, I must address you as we approach Saturday’s elections, when you will be electing a Governor who will continue after me and consolidate on the progress we have built together. You will also be electing members of the State House of Assembly who will make laws on your behalf to assist the Governor and his team in the Executive arm. Although your votes will...

Just Before Yobe’s Gubernatorial Elections By Mallam Abba Gadaka

‘The punishment we suffer, if we refuse to take an interest in matter of government, is to live under the government of worse men’ - Plato 300BC   Thanks to the just concluded general elections, the electorates-mostly the masses are now equip with powerful weapon (PVC) to hire and fire non-performing leaders in their climes. The important aspect of this development is that leaders will henceforth respect people’s wishes and aspirations; this will greatly improve our democracy. I’m mortified and terrified to say the least, being a Yobean at this unfortunate moment, which our people had been...

How Do We Ought To Govern The Nigerian Society ? Socialism, Liberalism Or Welfarism By Jude Feranmi

APC MANIFESTO: A PHILOSOPHICAL CRITIQUE First and Foremost, I think it is important to congratulate APC, a coalition of opposition parties in Nigeria for their performance in the just concluded elections and to wish them the very best in their journey for at least the next four years. This is a philosophical critique of the APC manifesto and I would gladly enjoin the reader to see it as such. In the next four years, APC under the leadership of Muhammadu Buhari will be governing the Nigerian nation and as such it is necessary for us intellectuals to start this debate of how we want our society to be...

3 Reasons Your Guy Checks Out Other Women

1. Blame it on our noggins. Scientists say one of the most glaring differences between the male and female brain is that men have a sexual pursuit area that is 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain. As Louann Brizendine, M.D., author of The Male Brain explains it, just as cavemen sought out multiple mating partners so they could produce as many offspring as possible, the brain of the modern-day male (even a happily hitched one) is more or less programmed to always be on the lookout for a fertile mate. Not to say that men intend to physically pursue any “visual enticement” they encounter, but...

Frank Talk: Why General Buhari Should Lead Us By Onyeka Okonji

The past few months have been a very tight and challenging one in the polity of Nigeria, the political landscape of Nigeria has become so heated up that it affects even the citizens of this great nation who are wrongly believed to have no control over what goes on this country. Critical part of this season is the elections into certain offices in the country, the presidential elections being the most particular of the rest. Currently, we have 14 candidates running for the most wanted position in this country, a position which bestows one with so much power that it has corrupted so many in the past and even...

The Igbo Vote By Oritsejolomi M. Rone @jolomir

Been quiet for a long time now, but been busy reading through post from friends who have made mind on whom to vote for on Saturday and I respect their choices I even though their reasons may be suspect), I still respect their choices. But what I find disturbing is the ethnic divide this election brings with it the South-South and the South-East in devout dedication for the incumbent's continued transformation agenda (save for a few) and the North and South-West singing the change song (of which I am one). Quietly I have un-friended some of my friends here (some really old friends) not because they support...
