JUSTICE is as much about process as it is about outcome. If the process for the administration of justice is not duly followed, an injustice occurs regardless of the outcome. A responsible, proactive judiciary has a moral obligation to prevent such injustice that may result from the violation of due process, and protect its victims,…

THE remarkable nature of Nigerians that is admirable is the fact that the further their credulity is taxed, as credulous people, their faith grows stronger. This faith will be tested as they choose between the two candidates presented by the parties for the 2015 presidential elections. One is the dominant party that pioneered the commencement…

UNTIL President Olusegun Obasanjo began his crusade against corruption via the Anti-Corruption law, “Welcome to the country of corruption” would have been an appropriate inscription at Nigeria’s international airports! The anxiety of airport officials to extort money from those travelling into and out of the country, be they Nigerians or foreigners, was there for all…

WHEN in 1863 the first Chancellor of Germany, Otto von Bismarck, told his country’s parliament that practical politics and theoretical politics are antithetical, he only expressed the contempt politicians have for their fellow citizens who are not engaged in politics as a career. Although politicians strive to conceal it because of its potential for outrage that might lead to loss…

I HAVE often wondered why few Nigerian women have demonstrated keen interest in political leadership. Why, for example, is the Nigerian political and public space dominated by men? It is a troubling question but it is not one that lends itself to easy answers. On the surface, we celebrate the entrenchment of democracy and official…
