Cow and blood democracy - IKECHUKWU AGADA

All eyes with sky-high expectations are locked with the President to review his catch statement during his first inauguration: “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” to ” I am not for all Nigerians but for my tribe only”.

Evil forests and terror gangs in Southwest - Oludayo Tade

LIVING in terror spaces is an apt description of what Nigerians encounter daily. The leadership of Nigeria has not lived up to the expectation of meeting what is written in the National Security Strategy, NSS, released by President Muhammadu Buhari’s government in 2019.

The Fox And The Cock In Contemporary Nigeria

The story of “How the fox lost its fright of the cock” or “How the cock foolishly made itself the fox’s delicious meal” was one of the “tales by the moonlight” that must have been told in millions of Yoruba households in those days.

Nigeria: A country that lives in denial - Sunday Onyemaechi Eze

NIGERIA is a country living in denial of its division, challenges, and troubled chequered history. Anybody who lays claim to the fact that the country is united now is living in illusion or is outrightly delusional.

THE last time we heard about food blockade in Nigeria was over 50 years ago at the height of the Nigerian Civil War.

Justice begets peace - Rotimi Fasan

What kind of social or political engineering can be executed in a country that has been set adrift by politically-motivated ethnic tension? Nigeria is today being pulled in different directions by forces that may seem beyond it but which are actually within manageable limits if only those invested with the authority to act will do just that.

If Britain Could Exit The EU…

IF Britain could exit the European Union, as it did close to the midnight of 31st January 2020; if Eritrea could exit Ethiopia; if Southern Sudan could exit Sudan, then, there is nothing that says nations cannot exit nations.

Politicians Versus The People -Chief Adeniyi

Whenever the history of the eventual collapse of this country is written Nigeria’s commercial/mercenary politicians will surely take the lion’s share of the blame.

Sir, there are many nationalities in the cooked-up country called Nigeria; non likes to take over others’ land. ONLY the Fulani want to take over other people’s land. So where is Fulaniland so that we too can go and live there? Thanx”

Eviction Orders Here And There Will Make Us Refugees In Our Own Country, By Fredrick Nwabufo

It takes just a moment of indignation to destroy; to cast down and cast out. It is easier to destroy than to build. And what is broken sometimes cannot be put together again.

If Only They Would Listen To Ortom - Ikyur

GOVERNOR Samuel Ortom of Benue State is not the usual Nigerian politician. He’s not given to pretensions. And he does not massage anyone’s ego.

The North and Her Bandits

If the truth must be told, the perplexing insecurity situation in the northern part of Nigeria will remain a nagging problem for a very long time without a change of attitude and sincere commitment to routing the elements behind terrorism and banditry on the parts of security agencies, national leadership and leaders in the region.
