A Yellow Card For The Rulers

A Yellow Card For The Rulers

Change can be both evolutionary and revolutionary. When it’s slow, steady and constructive, that’s evolution. When it’s rapid, even sudden, and transformative in a positive way, that’s revolution. But revolution is oftentimes violent in changing a nation’s political landscape. And it usually happens when all the institutions of the state have failed and the leadership

The End Of Executive Stupidity?

So, fuel subsidy is gone. Those who had always advocated for its end are celebrating. But those who see it as an entitlement for the masses are angry. If it’s gone, then it’s a special anniversary gift to Nigeria at 60. But is it really gone? We need to know as the government has been

We All Are Now Wailing Wailers

Politicians will say and do anything and everything to win elections. Just see how President Donald Trump is willfully distorting facts, inventing fictions to strengthen the narratives that suit him and creating an alternative reality of the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the economy that has tanked. Trump is desperate to get re-elected on

Nigeria’s Democrazy and Its Undertakers

Adams Oshiomhole is on a roll. He’s revelling wantonly in his unrestrained power to do as he pleases.  The ex-comrade and former governor has achieved his aim. He’s now the sovereign of APC and self-anointed godfather of Edo State politics.  He believes that, as national chairman, he’s beyond the constraints of his party’s constitution and

It's Mourning in Nigeria

It’s Mourning in Nigeria

The Muhammadu Buhari administration exists in a parallel world, where alternative facts rule and reality is willfully distorted. Five years on, their Nigeria, according to them, has turned the corner. It is on the road to becoming “a shining city on a hill”, as President Ronald Reagan once described his United States of America. A

Remembering Jonathan

Change was nothing but a chimera sold by snake oil salesmen and saleswomen. We were warned, by those who feared, that embracing the chimera would be a disastrously wrong turn on our road to democratic progression. They had seen through the smokes-and-mirror agenda of the All Progressives Congress, APC. But their voices were drowned out

A Civil War Without End

By the nature of their profession, politicians, generally, are scoundrels, with only very few exceptions. They are instinctively dishonest and thrive in brinkmanship. Oftentimes of the most extreme kind. They are like the chameleon that changes its colour anytime to match its current location. For the politician, it’s to fit his immediate interest, which is

The Ticking Time Bomb!

The Ticking Time Bomb!

This is a historically trying period for mankind, a unique time warp that reminds us how very puny we are in the natural scheme of things. Our delusion that we are the masters of the universe has been badly exposed by an invisible, vicious virus. All over the world, people are scrambling for cover, confused

The Trouble with Our E-learning

Corona virus is a bastard. It threw the world into an emergency, minified otherwise powerful leaders and put the economy of great and small nations in shambles. But it did more than that. The pandemic, otherwise known as Covid-19, also threatens the future of our children. Children who are thrown out of school are uncertain

Trump’s Corona Blues

A bully is a coward with a fragile ego. That squarely fits President Donald Trump, who is a dangerous bully at war with common sense and reality by creating an alternative universe about everything that he can’t bend to his will. He distorts facts so cavalierly. Or as his senior counsel, Kellyanne Conway, once said,
