SIR: Where are the crazy Nigerian politicians? I expect some of the not- too-popular political parties in Nigeria would be full of “crazy” people. I mean positively crazy like the Green Party of the United Kingdom for instance. Look at the Green Party. They state amongst other things they would abolish the monarchy in Britain…

Chibok-girls
11 Feb 2015
AFTER what seemed like a collective and tragic amnesia on the part of all, the renewed demand by the United Nations Security Council and other citizens of the world on Boko Haram fundamentalists to immediately free from its custody the schoolgirls seized from Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok on April 14, 2014 is a…

PROFESSOR Attahiru Jega’s Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) appears to be deliberately misleading Nigerians and the international community by claiming “we are ready for the election”, whereas in actual fact, the Commission has met barely 50% of the prerequisite preparatory statutory requirements. Rather than courageously admitting that the Commission was not ready for the February Polls,…

WITH over 100 international caps, Ivoirien footballer, Gnégnéri Yaya Touré, led his national team, “the Elephants”, to victory over Ghana’s “Black Stars” in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in the final of the African Cup of Nations (Afcon) last Sunday. This victory finally exorcised the ghosts of past failures by members of the perennially under-achieving “golden…

THE current political campaigns are throwing up a lot of issues, issues that should rather be left where they are unless they must be properly treated because some of them stink. One would never know how decayed our society has become and how it is capable of belching out garbage until a period like this.…

LIKE a thunder in the bolt, the general elections originally scheduled for both February 14 and 28, 2014 have been shifted to March 28 and April 11, 2014. To the undiscerning, this may be nothing spectacular more so that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), would be ready to conduct the polls on the new dates.…

THE recent policy of the Federal Government to enrich two aspects of the manufacturing sector, though belated judging by the canons of national planning, is commendable. Notwithstanding the case that, at face value, it is a step in the right direction, these policies could, however, be improved upon for proper integration into other aspects of…

WITHOUT ever knowing or meeting me, Buhari gave me a chance. As I now write, I have never met him one-on-one. We have never spoken to each other. It is an extraordinary experience of an unusual man.     I was sitting on my desk in the Ministry of External Affairs, 40 Marina Lagos in…

AFRICAN leaders have put ‘Women’s Empowerment and Development’ at the top of their agenda for the AU Summit in Addis Ababa. For this they must be warmly commended. But few have spelled out what that will mean in practical terms. With respect, we would like to offer a suggestion. Implementing national action plans to end…

AS we enter into this crucial election period, to Nigeria, I sound a clarion call; to those who are dissatisfied with the current status quo, I conclude with a series of posers. If there is anybody out there who still disbelieves that my life is an example of someone who demonstrates the art of the…
