The true heroes of Nigeria

The other day, I was watching a video tape of Oprah Winfrey opening her school in South Africa, “Leadership Academy for Girls”. I asked myself why Oprah didn’t consider Nigeria as a desirable place for this gesture. Does Nigeria as a country have the credibility to attract such gestures, not only from Ms Winfrey but from other philanthropists who are looking to bring Africa up to developmental speed with other continents? Besides these questions, what struck me to the core was when these girls… Continue

SAVE OR DIE

I agree with you that your salary is not enough. Unfortunately, without mincing words, it would never be. Even that pay raise you are vehemently praying for would not transport you to financial bliss. In fact, the stats are bleak; if I told 100 people that their salary would double in six months, a staggering 99 percent of them would double their expenditures immediately in anticipation of the actual funds. They would immediately nurse ideas of moving to a better apartment, changing their car,… Continue

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

REFLECTION OF BAYELSA LEADERSHIP-Uncertainity and Notion of Mindfulness





ABSTRACT



You must avoid two common extremes in reacting to events. How you respond to the world and issues around you can affect the rate your government or office respond to crisis and most importantly people's perception of your character personality, and eventually your genueity and capacity to succeed. Mindfulness means being able to notice the content of your thoughts, emotions and motivations as they appear.
