The Political Impact of Bayelsa ‘s 2010 Budget

Politics and leadership should be Siamese twins. While politics is about power relationships in particular fields, leadership reminds us of the guidiance from one man of influence in a group situation that helps the group to achieve desired ends. You need extraordinary leadership to succeed in the slippery Nigerian political terrain. No need to elaborate here. Ronald Reagan said that politics was much like the oldest profession in one hand and like show business on the other hand. “You have one… Continue

The Rule of law and the the two Nigerias

The Nigerian dilemma stems from constitutional confusion. There can never be a rule of law without a constitution that respects the laws of Nigeria, internationally recognized laws of Nigeria. Nigerian history is replete with so many constitutional changes to the extent that no one seems to keep track with how the true constitution looked like. But without such a direction how can a nation be built? This treatise will trace the catastrophic political discoloring of the true Nigerian… Continue

A Happy New Year To Nigerians? Not For Me It Is!

I just chatted with a friend, Gani on Facebook this morning (the morning after Boxing Day) and the first thing I told him is that I am a sick, frustrated, despondent and discouraged Nigerian. Gani shared my views and all I listed above but, true Nigerian as he is, he counselled me not to even think of ever giving up. He himself was all wrought up because as a devout Moslem, he was sad about the Nigerian bomber incident.



The year 2009 is about to come to a permanent close, never to be… Continue

LOOKING AT NIGERIA

Nothing seem to ever work in Nigeria. Every one seem to know the problem we have but no one wants to take the bulll by the horn. A little discipline of every meaningful Nigerian is enough to change this country. I once travelled out but you will not believe that I live almost all my life in that country to portray a good image of Nigeria, but come home and see what others see.



No one will want to show a good image of Nigeria, people live their lives the way they want, there is no… Continue

The Chile Story: A lesson for African Leaders

The Chile Story; a Lesson for African Leaders



Some years back, I fell in love with a British TV program where (as usual) some rich, old money, family were bumbling through their daily lives trying to figure out what to do to remain relevant in society. What I found interesting was the fact that while the master and mistresses of the house had their servants and chambermaids, the butler (one of the servant staff) had his own servants too. In effect, you have the master; the servants,… Continue

Children of a Lesser God...

There is a generally held belief that most players endure a bad second season following a great season. While a few of them overcome this syndrome, ominously names “second season-ities” (I have no idea who came up with that name), in subsequent seasons, others have had their great performances filed under the “one season wonder” title in the great museum of football under-achievers.



Prior to the world cup draw, there was talk of an African team winning the world cup in South Africa,… Continue

Understanding the Spirit and Importance of Christmas

Christmas as a period when we Christians commemorate the coming of Jesus Christ is meant to be a very important Spiritual exercise. The 25th of December is set aside to celebrate His birth.These days, the social celebrations overshadow the actual significance. If I call a child today and ask what he or she understands about christmas, I am 80% certain that the response I will get would not be far from: "Christmas is the time when we visit our loved ones, visit the parks, eat and have fun".
