print email

In early 2009, Mohammed Buba Marwa, then Nigeria's ambassador to South Africa, became dissatisfied with his status as a diplomat. He wanted an elective executive position, which in our country gives virtual free rein for a leader to do as he pleases, calling the shots and dispensing patronage.

A former military administrator of Lagos…

The Anarchic Rule Of Ohakim

Having miraculously come to be the governor through one of the easiest and rarest circumstances, one would have expected a better performance from Chief Ikedi Godson Ohakim(IGO), the governor that was recently ousted from office in Imo State. Having been privileged to see the limelight, though from a humble background, Ohakim carelessly managed and made a mess of the rare opportunity given to him to write his name, like Mbakwe, in the annals of Imo history.

The 2007 elections in Imo… Continue

Nigeria: Terrorism Threat: Police Headquarters Bombed


Nigeria: Terrorism Threat: Police Headquarters Bombed


I must confess that I am neither surprised by the brazen attack on the headquarters of the Nigeria Police, the almighty Louis Edet house in Abuja, by members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect, nor by the reaction of President Goodluck Jonathan. Why?


I was in Maiduguri and Bauchi August for over a week in 2009 after the Boko…

It will be easier for a camel to pass through the h*** of a needle than for Nigeria as nation to progress.  Apart from the corrupt recycle leadership, the mentality exibits by majority of Nigerians make it not only difficult for Nigeria to progress as anation but also incacerates the few progressive ldeas necessary to push and affects changes. Like someone tell me, "corruption is no news to NIgerian's ear" so, has Nigerians endorsed corruption as national pastime, probably yes as majority of…

Far away on the distance sea,

Your lovely face I long to see.


When’re the seas in anger foam and roar,

And in anguish, oceans their peril laid bare.

When the vessel on which we commute and toil

Wrestles with the swell and the deep:



Tossing us up and down.

And the sail and anchor seems not to avail

Your semblance is always there

To buoy my nerve and bid hopes to keep.

Defining Achievement, Performance and Humility of Nigeria’s Political Class

As I was having a brainwave and contemplating what to write about the topic of our political leaders’ “achievement," “performance” and their “humility”, it occurred to me that I personally don’t resound with the concept of focusing life on achieving end results outside of myself. The English dictionary’s definition of ‘achieve - to bring to a successful conclusion; accomplish; attain; to gain as by hard work or effort - states that by its nature, achievement or accomplishment is an result, a… Continue

Since the arrest of the former speaker of the house of representatives Mr Dimeji Bankole and his deputy Mr Nafada for corrupt practises involving billions of Naira, i've been asking myself some simple questions such as, if Mr Bankole won his re-election into the house,would he be standing trial today? The answer is a big NO! This scam would have been swept under the carpet and it will be business as usual while fellow Nigerians will continue to live in poverty in the middle of plenty. The…

Nigerian Politics And PDP's Dominance

PDP once said that they will rule this nation for a minimum of 60years, making us susceptible to a gradual departure from true democracy to the realm of political anarchy. One is made to ponder whether the one party system(only PDP)will be democracy or disguised dictatorship. The thought of the possible future puts fear in the hearts of well meaning Nigerians. The hold of PDP on this nation looks so strong and spells doom for us all. Its reversal is almost unthinkable, considering the sequence… Continue
