THE LESSONS OF BOKO HARAM

The Nigerian nation has had more than its fair share of conflicts. From inter-ethnic, intra-ethnic and religious conflicts to land disputes etc. e.g. Shagamu (Yoruba vs Hausa in July 1999; Aguleri vs Umuleri in Anambra State in April, 2000; the Ikulu vs Baju in Zango Kataf; the ethno-religious fracas in parts of Jos, in Sept. 2001, July 2002, and Nov. 2008; acts of militancy in the Niger Delta and most recently the attacks on innocent Nigerians that started in Bauchi and sporadically spread to… Continue

THE BANKS AND THESE FRAUDULENT AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINES (ATM)

The ATM is a veritable and very interesting way to get quick cash without going through the usual hassle and problems associated with having to go to the banking hall. It is also a very good method of obtaining cash in emergency situations. In fact I dare say that the technology which has been in use in developed countries of the world and very recently introduced here in Nigeria qualifies for one of the greatest inventions for all times because of the ease, and comfort associated with… Continue

Environment and the Niger Delta Question

Environment has always been the whipping boy of the Niger Delta dilemma. Everyone knows that there is oil spillage here and there; that there is degradation of the soil structure thereby making Agriculture and indeed fishing less attractive as an occupation for the people. Each year the ecological fund is given to States and budgeted into embankment, jetties, erosion control and the like. The international community represented by the World Bank, the DFID, etc and oil companies conduct research… Continue

Nigeria Needs A revolution

Nigeria needs a revolution in every aspect of life especially in the political, social, mental and spiritual spheres if she must survive the vagaries of the millennium. A branding revolution in the political sphere is preeminent as it points the way to all others. Nigeria needs to measure up in terms of the caliber of leadership she throws up at a globalized world. She needs a leader who is competitive in every respect, someone who can participate effectually at United Nations deliberations for… Continue

Of Death, Rumours, Curses And Superstitions

In a classic illustration of how rumours and hearsay work, Mark Twain described in his autobiography how news that a cousin was dying quickly metamorphosed into the "scoop" that Twain himself was dead. His response became instantly famous: "The report of my death was an exaggeration." Were he alive today, Twain would probably be amused to observe how, in this Internet age, celebrities and well-known figures are confronted by "news" of their own demise on a regular basis.



A premature… Continue

Corruption And The Death Penalty

NEWS: “SENATOR Smart Adeyemi, representing Kogi West Senatorial Constituency at the National Assembly, has called for a law prescribing death penalty for public officials found guilty of corrupt practices, saying such stiffer punishment would encourage the ongoing fight against corruption”.



Everybody knows my views on corruption in Nigeria. I totally abhor it and would do a lot of things to fight corruption. The fact realistically remains that in any society, we cannot have… Continue

Crime, Justice and Punishment: Bode George as a Case Study

Since the BIG news broke, I have been agonising. I don’t know whether I should consider this as a victory, justice, retribution, or insult. Like many Nigerians, home and abroad who heard or read the news of Bode George and his co-conspirators’ conviction and sentencing, the news was met with mixed feelings.



On the one hand, I was actually happy and felt good to know that a man of Bode George’s standing and calibre in Nigerian society and politics, could be convicted in our… Continue

Kidnapping As A Business

For the past half-century years of my life, I never knew I was wasting my time in this world, or maybe as a Nigerian. My parents spent time, energy money etc on me to have a very good education so that I may get a very good job and be useful to my family, my community, my people and my country.



Fifty three years later, I have been in different jobs, made very little money and still trying to find the right job that will adequately feed my family. Now, at this stage, I should not even… Continue

How Banks in Nigeria Can Build A Successful Online Presence

Traditionally, if you need more customers for your business, you could do a lot of things.

You might throw more money into radio or TV ads, get gigantic placement on billboards at different locations, or get foot soldiers to comb the streets even as far as standing on pedestal bridge (this really happened).

Unfortunately, most of these methods are different to track. Was it the billboard placement that drew that customer to your business or was it the TV…

Nigeria @50: Where is our commitment (2)



Viewpoints Oct 14, 2010 PARENTS look the other way when problems of students’ crises within and outside the university occur, allowing cultism and examination malpractices to mature and foster.



The teachers are on a field day on industrial actions on issues that are really none of their business. Students posit as if character and learning have become obsolete values in the making of a student and embrace the negative values of violence, cheating and immorality to the detriment…
