Terrorism, politics and counter-insurgency in Northern Nigeria

Western culture at best, with world becoming a global village cultural diversity is burning across the globe like a wide fire. In western capitals the word Lesbian has become synonymouse with most old and almost young women with other cultures doing the copy cat or assimilating especially blacks. What amazes me is that these chobby women with men hair cuts, big bottom, oversize pants tries to brag themselves like men. They walk like a bullies trying to impress, they double talk trying to show… Continue

The issue of FOI in Nigeria indicate that what it's secret in government business will open to public and freedom of disseminating information will be achieved without victimization or intimdation. Not only this but also the corrupt people in our modern society will reduce. If present administration would that this law is enshrine in constitution, the interest of both government and citizens will be safeguard.

GLOBALIZATION: WHY AFRICA IS ECONOMICALLY BEHIND Continue
From time to time, one comes across articles in newspapers, periodicals, and magazines that cause one to scratch one’s head in curiosity and wonder as to the truth of claims and assertions made in such articles. If so, could there have been preferable alternative; and if such alternatives exist, why were they not pursued? Such were my feelings and questions, after reading the piece, Africa – Missing Globalization…

It is said that ‘change is the only constant thing’ and the message of change is widely accepted all over the world. Hence, United States President, Barrack Obama in his election campaign preached change – ‘yes we can’ – and its no surprise that he won. Human beings are tired of monotony and are in a constant need for change. Yet, not just change as it were, but positive change. Hence, the human society has changed progressively over time from: the stone-age to this technology driven era;… Continue

We are indeed grateful to God for sustaining Nigeria’s democracy and for the successful inauguration of Dr Goodluck Jonathan as the President of our dear country Nigeria. He is to some, the expected Nigerian messiah to alleviate poverty and procure solutions to the myriad and giant problems such as corruption, electric power etc. that has held us by the jugulars for too long. To some, he is just a piece of the power puzzle. He can’t do it alone they say. Only time will tell.
Mr President,… Continue

I have been vindicated going by my April 19th blog; 'ACN LIED TO NIGERIANS FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH INTEREST!!!!'. With secret meeting that took place between Mr. President and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, it was obvious that PDP in partnership with the leadership of ACN planted Nuhu Ribadu as their presidential candidate in other to distablize any strong opposition. However, what that alliance will bring to this democracy is not clear to the average Nigerian on the street. In as much as there is no problem… Continue

Last night our Super Eagles took their pound of flesh from the Argentines by beating them 4-1 in a friendly match played at the Abuja National Stadium. It was victory well deserved going by the football history of the two countries. I know one would tell me that what played was not Argentina national team, but it does not matter. All I know is that eleven players of Argentina origin wearing their national colours featured in that game and they lost to the Super Eagles. Kudos one more time… Continue

Members of the Imo State House of Assembly have impeached their speaker and his deputy and elected new ones to take charge. The question is, why did it take them so long to realise that the speaker and his deputy were high handed as they alleged. Is it not one impeachment too late?
