IT takes great courage to attempt a brief reflections on the life and times of this legend of our time, Chief Chukwuma Anueyiagu whose ten (10) decades on earth is nothing but a study in ruggedness, fulfillments and accomplishments, a life of uncompromising commitment and belief in hardwork and consistency to purpose, a life of…

POLITICS, like the gladiatorial pistolling of enemies by the military, without pretence, is war. Unlike the conventional warfare, however, where disloyalty and disobedience are synonymous with self-immolation, politics could in real terms be regarded as a congregation of human beings with diverse values and specious but exterior amity. It is in this kind of murky…

SIR: I have followed AIT over the years from its unsettled days in the mid-1990s up and until this moment. How can I forget Jika Attoh’s Kakaaki back then? The packages those days were first class, but the station is quickly losing its respect by my assessment.   In 2009, when I watched without fail,…

DEATH
7 Mar 2015
THOUGH the Lagos State government has based its retention of the death penalty in its criminal law on its endorsement by the public, the position of the state loses its merit when subjected to deeper scrutiny. Indeed a re-consideration of the decision is validated by the fact that the matter involves life, which human beings have no power to create and therefore should take extreme care in seeking to take. …

IT is amusing that when the President, Goodluck Jonathan, said corruption should be called by its true meaning, “stealing”, there were people who had a lot of disagreement with it. While there may be very sophisticated definitions and understanding of corruption, there is no doubt that with most Nigerian communities, the meaning is clearer when…

IT would take another Jew to understand clearly the point Benjamin Netanyahu made before a joint session of the United States Congress, last week, regarding Iran’s quest for nuclear capabilities. But that is if the rest of the world chooses to pretend about the psychology of the average Jew who has been conditioned by a…

LET me begin with an apology. Two weeks ago in this column, I inadvertently stated that in last year’s governorship contest in Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose defeated Kayode Fayemi in Akure. I had meant to say Ado-Ekiti; Akure is the capital of Ondo State. I apologise.    I follow with an appeal… to Stephen Keshi,…

THERE are two sets of people awaiting trial in this country. The first set are people who argue that they are right to do crime. Their arguments are, oh so spacious and of course self-serving. They begin by saying that everybody in this country is employed by Crime. They mention public office holders who paid…

THE postponement of the presidential election by six weeks has attracted reactions from all over. In a press statement announcing the postponement, the INEC chairman made it clear that the idea was not original to INEC. He blamed security and security agents for their unequivocal position that they could not guarantee security, if the election…

SIR: Regardless of the prominent Umuoji people in high offices and successful businesses, comparatively, something overall seems to be mystifying in the stunted growth of the town. The neighbouring towns of Ojoto, Uke, Nkpor, Abatete and Ogidi can boast of a major government influence. Specifically, they have, at least, one or two good-tarred roads running…

SIR: Before long Chief Ebikebina Tantua Taingbe II (JP), “Chief Tantua,” as titled by his peers - and “Director,” by his staff members, past and present would be committed to mother earth in Amasoma in Bayelsa State having paid his eternal reward.   Until his death on December 9, 2014, he was the owner and…
