Fixing-Nigeria
23 Feb 2015
NOW, in different power centres across the nation, critical discussions and mobilization are all centred on who the next leaders of Nigeria must be this 2015. Meetings, strategy sessions, primitive diabolic and spiritual incursions, and operations in stratagem are at present on-going in this regard. What is ahead is largely unknown. But what is clear…

EVERYONE has an identity. Every locality, every city, every country and every continent have their identities. Our voices, our faces, our aura, our character(s), our families, our schools, our teams, our associations, all form for us differing identities. When subject to examining, our fingerprints and footprints have peculiarities that differentiate a person from another. But…

WE are the generation of at least 20.3 million unemployed youths. The generation that has grown accustomed to holding on to the constant and pervasive threat of Boko Haram at the back of our minds.

REGRETTABLY, the presidential candidates of the APC and the PDP are engaged in a desperate fight for their political lives in an election now a few weeks away.

IN spite of the present frenzied atmosphere in our dear country Nigeria due to the expected 2015 general election, there is no gain saying the fact that the way and manner the votes will be cast next month will reposition the country to actualise the latent great prospects in the socio-economic and political growth and…

12 Feb 2015
THEY manifest in various forms: monarchs, aristocrats, autocrats, democrats, plutocrats, technocrats and other types of governance and leadership styles. Nevertheless, the central focus of this cut-in-the-wood pack is the consuming zeal to make their society better and more fulfilled than they met it. 0bviously stepped in their societal role-expectation of a guaranteed future, sundry leaders…

THE political landscape in the country is gradually unfolding. The political gladiators have started beating and sounding their drums in commencement of their campaigns. Sadly, the situation still remains the same. The old warhorses are the dominant faces in politics.   With the exception of a state like Lagos where the race will see the…

RECENTLY, I have begun thinking about youths that I used to know with great dreams and bright ideas, but seemed to have drifted into oblivion. Some have struggled to carve a niche for themselves, and having failed in this quest, have given up on their pursuits. Others have been swept away by life’s unpredictable challenges,…
