Whoever wins this 2011 Presidential Election, will go down in the history of Nigeria as a national Hero. This is so reflected in the manner the election was conducted. The approach may be crude yet its very transparent and credible, the more people tried to term or categorise the voting pattern, the more elusive it becomes. Whether the voting pattern is along Party Line, Tribal Line, Religious Line, Geographical or Regional Line, whatever line it is, I think the aura that produced the… Continue

When over a year ago I embarked on the unfamiliar endeavour of a writing style that promotes Naija (aka Nigerian Pidgin) in an interesting mix with the English language, I was not oblivious of the fact that many would be wondering about its rationale in terms of effectively communicating with my readers. I also appreciated the fact that it will not only be branded as “distasteful” but a complete infringement on the… Continue

Those who did not allow for credible elections to take place during their time are now clamoring to take advantage of the transparency of the present regime. The youths of Nigeria are voting and their voices calls for new thinkers to steer the ship of state. The old captains should sleep with one eye open because, in this new Nigeria, they cannot enjoy their stolen wealth.

As in for me, Bakare is a replacement of what was long gone, it seem like yesterday, great times are not meant to be forgotten, what am i talking about?, yes, the man Idiagbon. I feel the replacement is a perfect one, just imaging what Nigeria will be when BUHARI/BAKARE are voted in. Nowadays, name is just name, people do not follow the purpose. My fear is not Jonathan but his godfathers, the kacus PDP, Jonathan is only a cover for them, he is a picture to make Nigerians believe he is the… Continue

With all the scare of bomb attack here and there, aside from the one in one or two states. I'd rather say that the election is more peaceful. This doesn't rule out the fact that it was also marred with a reasonable share of irregularities and manipulating of figures but on the average i'd score Jaga a pass mark. Considerin the fact that if it was the previous ones conducted..winners would had been known before the collating the results. What's you take on it?

Reading through the Nigerian newsmedia, one can see long queues of Nigerians standing in the scorching sun to perform their civic responsibility of voting in an election. Without doubt many are voting for the first time in their life,while others believe that their vote won't really make any difference. Last saturday's election can be described as an acceptable election because there was some minor hitches here and there, we hope today's election will be an improvement from the previous one.… Continue

With the likely election of President Goodluck Jonathan on first ballot the Nigerian Revolution moves into the 3rd stage. Remember that the first stage of this peaceful revolution was kick started with the widespread discontent of Nigerians over the apparent refusal of Late President Yar Adua’s to hand over to his deputy during his medical trip abroad last year. There were protests led by Youth groups the most visible was the Prof Soyinka endorsed March on Abuja which helped to push the… Continue

The tricks played on people on April Fool's day can't be more than the one played on unsuspecting Nigerians on April 2 with an issue as serious as our elections. Just as the seemingly careful ones among us exercised our shrewdness and thought that we have manoeuvred any possibility of becoming victims of this year's version, ours came in a bigger, more surprising and unfortunate package -election cancellation and deferment.
Reminiscing about the event, I had no choice than to give my… Continue

There are conflicting accounts on how former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo was finally captured. Gbagbo was arrested after a military assault on his residence in Abidjan and has been put under UN guard.
Forces of his UN-recognised successor, Alassane Ouattara, and French tanks advanced on his residence where he had been ensconced in a bunker. Gbagbo had been refusing to cede power, insisting he won November’s presidential election.

9jerians, what we need in this great, blessed and well-naturally endowed country, Nigeria is nothing more than: education, exposition and technical know-how. If we have up to 10% of Nigeria Politicians as educated and civilized like Dimeji Bankole, then, good governance is guaranteed.

With this election,it seems like Nigeria is finally getting it right in spite of all odds. We in Australia commend the statesmanship of President Jonathan Goodluck who insisted on appointing a man of integrity like Jega to lead INEC. We also commend Jega for proving most people right that he is an upright Nigerian. Above all, we commend the wonderful, beautiful Nigerian people for their endurance, doggedness and determination to usher in a New Nigeria for all through democracy. Finally, we… Continue
