Ibori's legal prosecution in London court is an indictment on Nigerian judiciary& her institutions. How 170 count charges was dismissed in less than 2hours (or circa) in Nigerian court was an absurdity beyond comprehension.A monumental threat to societal progress and moral code of conduct.
But today where is the Judge that dispensed such a warped & cruel judgement?Where is our sense of accountability as a policy of deterrence?hmmmmmm....Nigeria Nigeria…

The learned CJN explained what he meant by his statement that the concept had a dubious origin in Nigeria: “when I described the concept as of ‘dubious origin’, I…Continue

INTRODUCTION TO URBAN SOCIOLOGY
In general, in this course we explore ideas about cities and humans who live there through a series of lenses including: city as symbol, city as location of assimilation and integration and the opposite, city as a site of segregation and extremes of power and capital. How do cities work and for whom? By combing theoretical readings with case studies, we will move from historical ethnographies of cities and communities, to current studies…Continue
''YES I STOLE THE MONEY'' (By James Onanefe Ibori)
Yes I stole the money!
But I've already asked God for forgiveness, and that's the most important thing.
I know you'll also find space in your heart to also forgive me.
Yes I stole the money!
I know they've already exposed billions of naira, in cash and property;
But that is still a tip of the iceberg!
There is nothing faceless or mysterious about Boko Haram because organized crime in any society cannot thrive and blossom without the knowledge,support,finance,prodding of the elite and community.
This cancerous menace is a well rehearsed and orchestrated script by some greedy & blood thirsty elite from the "Axis of Evil" to gain greater access to the Nation's treasury.
But when the chips are finally down,those who create horror for whatever motives will…Continue

Break Up Nigeria
Break up Nigeria and get it over with! The colonial masters put the country together. They have been gone since 1960 yet instead of reverting back to the old countries and stay UNITED as a Commonwealth of Nations like the USA; the Hausas became the new colonial Masters!
The North should have invested in oil exploration in the north. They do not have oil in every state in the USA, yet they have managed to grow…Continue

Since the death of the Ikemba Nnewi Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu in a London hospital, tributes and words of praise has been poured on the former Biafran leader that it will be hard for anyone to make any comment without repeating what somebody else has said about him. Ojukwu's death brought all Nigerians to agree on one thing, Ikemba Nnewi was the man who saw tomorrow. The climax was attained when those who fought against him some 45 years ago recognised the fact that the Ikemba Nnewi did…Continue
When the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti released the song, VIP – Vagabond In Power in the late 70’s, Nigerians paid little heed to the lyrics, but danced their feet out to this politically-laced music. By the time they realised that Fela was something of a prophet, it was rather too late for them to arrest situations whereby their rulers were in fact vagabonds, thieves, looters and convicted felons. That is not to mention political prostitutes and opportunists whose main intent into going into…Continue

It's a tragedy from inferno of hell when children are groom & train to hate with killer instincts and a nation cannot progress in any sphere of human endevour when the citedal of human capital development is a cesspit of criminality for irrational religious ideology.
Now i can understand far better when Engr.Faruk AbdulMuttalab (U.S-
underwear bomber ) said the Mujadeen are ready to kill in the name of Allah...It is serious and eternal threat to…
