Misreading Smart Adeyemi!
May 06, 2021
<234-803-697-9133> Smart Adeyemi is not a clown and does not even behave like one. Unlike the man he replaced at the Senate, Smart is educated enough to know what it means to be a Senator. He is not given to histrionics. He is not a spook, he does not dress like one and he does […]
Niger 2023: All eyes on Bago!
Apr 30, 2021
<234-803-697-9133> “You are a true leader and, like all true leaders, you have the confidence to stand alone, you have the courage to make tough decisions, and you have the compassion to listen to the needs and aspirations of others. You did not set out to be a leader, but you have become one by […]
Kwara: Don’t distract the driver, please!
Jan 24, 2021
After years of being left in the lurch, divine intervention came for Nigeria’s State of Harmony, Kwara when, in 2019, the people elected what came close to their idea of a people’s government. The election of His Excellency Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq lifted people’s moral and the governor, aware of the heavy burden on his shoulders, literally […]
Trump: Who voted for a demagogue?
Jan 20, 2021
Finally, the end is here for Donald J. Trump. After weeks of stonewalling, Trump has quit office in a blaze of ingloriousness. Trump has been in desperate shape since he lost his reelection bid last November, but that desperation gets more ominous as Trump limps out of the White House, lonely and naked, into a […]
Wanted: A Heroes’ Day
Jan 15, 2021
January 15 is here! It is the date on the nation’s official calendar that never fails to intrigue. As if you have forgotten, January 15 is Armed Forces Remembrance Day, a special date set aside to salute Nigerian soldiers who died in the two world wars of 1914 to 1918 and 1939 to 1945 as […]
2023: Yariman Bakura as game changer!
Feb 27, 2020
The race has begun, unofficially though, and from all indications, the campaign ahead of the next presidential election will not be without its fair share of excitement. Over the past several weeks, nocturnal meetings have intensified greatly and, as to be expected, politicians are crisscrossing the country to cement old ties and seek new alliances. […]
Kwara: Harmony returns to its natural state!
Nov 28, 2019
Things are beginning to look up for Kwara state. The state is beginning to live up to its alias of a State of Harmony and governance is assuming its real meaning. Yes, the state is lucky not to have another stooge to hold down the cow for a few to milk and the word of […]
January 15: Can we also have a ‘Heroes’ Day’?
Nov 23, 2019
In about six weeks from now, precisely on January 15, 2020, Nigeria will be celebrating another Armed Forces Remembrance Day. As if you have forgotten, January 15 is the date set aside to salute Nigeria’s fallen heroes. Those fallen heroes are soldiers who died in the two world wars of 1914 to 1918 and 1939 […]
How (not) to kill the Federal Civil Service!
Oct 12, 2019
This is not the best of times for the Nigeria’s Federal Civil Service. As things stand, several factors have combined to dampen the morale of many hardworking career civil servants who, for no fault of theirs, may never reach the pinnacle of their career. At issue is the suspension (some call it abrogation!) of the […]
Xenophobia: Apartheid by another name!
Sep 08, 2019
In his first coming as military Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari foresaw the possibility of xenophobic attacks on Nigerians who ‘check out’ in search of the Golden Fleece. That fear must have prompted the government to create the award-winning television jingle, ‘Andrew’ which featured late actor Enebeli Elebuwa. The popular ‘Andrew’ jingle underlined the […]
