Insecurity: where do we go from here?
Feb 09, 2020
Have you watched the video clips of the gruesome execution of Lawan Andimi and Roypvil Dalyep by Boko Haram? Have you ever imagined what it feels like to take one’s loved ones away with hopes of reuniting with them waning with each passing day? Have you for once paused to ponder the pains and the trauma […]
Needless controversy over Amotekun!
Feb 02, 2020
I hope it would not amount to ‘Hate Speech’ to make some confessions, especially, with a particular reference to Nigeria’s sociopolitical landscape. First and foremost, let’s not deceive ourselves: Muhammadu Buhari has seen it all as one of Nigeria’s luckiest few, favoured by God. So, he has nothing to lose again. Having been privileged to […]
Is President Buhari mismanaging Nigeria?
Jan 26, 2020
It bears repeating that Nigeria’s continued existence will be at risk if the rich and the wealthy are not receptive to the clear warning of anger and poverty-induced disillusionments in the land. First, Aisha Buhari’s warning that most of Nigeria’s leaders, “as a result of a long time of injustice done to” the mass of the people, “cannot […]
Nigeria: From Egypt to Egypt?
Jan 20, 2020
Those who are familiar with the history of the Israelites will understand why their story in the wilderness will not be complete without a mention of how, at a stage, they had preferred being “slaves in Egypt” to being subjected to mass ignoble deaths “in the desert.” With the pathetic state of our country, it is unfortunate that such hopelessness and uncertain reality now define the lots of many Nigerians. […]
Again, who killed Bola Ige?
Dec 22, 2019
It is eighteen years since Bola Ige, Afenifere chieftain and former governor of the old Oyo State, departed this wide, wild world of war, courtesy of some yet-to-be-identified assassins. Ige was the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation at the time of his death on December 23, 2001. Close to two decades after the gory […]
NIPOST, FIRS and Stamp Duty Collection
Dec 10, 2019
It is neither a bad idea for the Federal Government to take measures aimed at bolstering the total revenue accruable to its purse, nor was it ignoble or less productive for its Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) to compete and struggle to outdo one another. However, all competitions for relevance by the MDAs must be […]
Emir Sanusi’s Lamentation!
Oct 29, 2019
The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II recently told a moving story of how a mother watched her sick child die while waiting to ask the Emir for financial assistance, because she could not afford to buy prescribed drugs of N3000.00, which, in context, was less than $10. Since “he who feels it knows […]
Oyo, Osun and LAUTECH: Counting the Cost
Oct 22, 2019
For quite some time, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, has been in the news for negative reasons. At the centre of this threatening mess, arising from catatonic claims about funding arrangement and obligations of owner states to the 29 year-old institution, are Oyo and Osun States. With its current fate, it is a […]
Now that Osun has Commissioners!
Oct 07, 2019
Let me start by confessing that recent events in Nigeria have not only shamed my trust, they have also shown how complicated we are as a people. In 2015, Muhammadu Buhari swore to “serve as president to all Nigerians” and uphold the Rule of Law. He promised to “belong to everybody” and “belong to nobody” […]
Our Governor, who art in Osun!
Sep 18, 2019
By now, Nigerians must have settled the idea of who actually governs legally in Osun, especially, after the pronouncement of the Supreme Court. That said, it is also a fact that, come November 27, 2019, Gboyega Oyetola will mark his first anniversary as Governor of the State of Osun. Perhaps, for the sake of argument therefore, […]
