Much Ado About Change And Restructuring

Clamors and agitations for change - any kind of change - are not done in silence, and in the case of Nigeria, there has been lots of noise in recent times about re-structuring and breakaways.Why all the noise, and why this level of intensive clamor for change now? Well, for one, the country at its present state is not working. Matter of fact, it has not been working for quite a long time. Specifically, it has not worked for all of the people all of the time, but has worked for some people -…See More

The Day the Veil Finally Came Off

On June 12, 2016, the US and, by extension, the world woke up to reports of a mass killing in a night club in Orlando Florida. Initial reports put the number of deaths at 20; however, by evening of that day, the death toll had risen to 50, including the shooter, and 53 wounded - most of them critically. As someone who has, over the years, become immune to these stories of mass killings, which seem to have become an accepted fabric of the American culture, what caught my attention were the…See More

The 2016 Nigerian Budget: Analysis and Concerns

Like many Nigerians, I watched President Muhammadu Buhari deliver his 2016 budget presentation to the Nigerian national Assembly on Tuesday, December 22, 2016. Like I always do with many of these budget speeches every year, I printed out the full text the following day, Wednesday 23rd, so I can read and fully digest the fine details.First, an N6.08tr budget in a period where the price of oil is selling below $40 a barrel is a bit ambitious; especially given the dwindling foreign reserves, and…See More

Opportunity Cost of the Stolen N8b at the Central Bank of Nigeria, Ibadan

For the past two days, the Nigerian social media, television stations, newspapers and other news outlets have been abuzz with the story of the arrest of some eight senior officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Ibadan branch, for conniving among themselves to steal N8 billion Naira from the branch. The allegation detailed how the officials, in charge of sorting and destroying mutilated and unusable high denominations of the Nigerian currency were, over a period of two to four years, switching…See More

Change: Proposals for the Buhari Administration

Like millions of Nigerians who prayed and fasted all over the years for some kind of change in Nigeria, for some sort of leadership that will take the collective social and economic interest of the ordinary Nigerian at heart, and work towards a semblance of betterment of their current situation where the distance between the cla**** have widened exponentially, and the middle class completely eliminated, I was elated when the All Progressives Congress (APC) swept the presidential and national…See More

Igbos: Again, Wandering in Nigeria’s Political Wilderness

The 2015 Nigerian presidential election has come and gone (unless some elements want to cause trouble) and the spoils have gone to the victorious All Progressives Congress, while the People’s Democratic Party is left agonizing in defeat.A breakdown of the voting pattern attests to the Igbo’s massive support for the candidate of the PDP and current president, Goodluck Jonathan. All through the four, or so, months of active campaigning, Igbos never hid which side of the fence they were on;…See More

Alex Otti: Is He The Messiah Abians Await?

The last time I rooted for a candidate in a Nigerian political election, that candidate turned out to be a disappointment, after twelve years in the senate. That candidate was Senator Uche Chukwumerije. I had hoped that with his level of education, experience, and personal integrity that he would bring considerable political pork to Abia state, especially his senatorial zone; unfortunately, he did not. What has that to do with Dr. Alex Otti and his desire to be the next Abia state governor, you…See More

Akwa Ibom Stadium: Alternative Uses for $96m

As my people are quick to say, what is good is good. Yes, I do agree; and might add that what is worth doing is worth doing well. So it was that Ibomites – as the people of Akwa Ibom call themselves – and Nigerians marveled at the state-of the-art stadium unveiled recently by the government of Akwa Ibom state. The presence of the current Ghanaian and Ivorian presidents, along with the ever-loved Jerry Rawlings, former Ghanaian president, in the company of President Goodluck Jonathan, added pump…See More

Economic Blueprint for Attracting Business & Commerce in Igbo land

As the saying goes; “a road once traveled, can always be traveled again”. In the first Republic, under the leadership of Drs. Akanu Ibiam and Michael Okpara, the then Eastern Region was economically self-sustaining, building upon the foundation laid by the colonial masters. For the region to get back to the successes of the first republic, it must strive to be a player in the current global economic dispensation, where trade borders are seamless, technology is cheap, and venture capitalists –…See More

Economic Recession: Causes, Effects, and Possible Solutions

Posted on October 18, 2016 at 10:15pm 0 Comments

Economists generally believe that recessions occur due to a more than normal drop in spending by both the private and public sectors; some of the things that could cause this drop include financial crises, as was the case in 2008 when the world suffered the consequences of a global financial meltdown due, in part, by the burst of the US housing bubble; an external trade or adverse supply shock – for example, some OPEC member countries like Nigeria and Venezuela who were heavily impacted by…

Change Really Does Begin With Me

Posted on September 27, 2016 at 4:45am 0 Comments

“A mere need in itself does not cause the wheels of change to spin in a peopled society; rather, the level of desire within that need does”

When I was young and living in Enugu, we used to go to a catholic church; one of the traditions of the catholic institution is the weekly or daily confessional (for those who have sins and crimes to confess to). As children, we were never really into confessions, though we did get into some pranks that…
