After reading the international magazine for several years, I began to regard the 'Economist' as a conscience of the world because of its serious and often well researched opinions on national and international issues. As an Accountant, I also have a strong pull towards its in-depth analysis of politics, economics and financial matters in the most elucidating manner. The Economist became to me, a Potpourri of socio-political news analysis that not only inform its audience about global affair...

Kudirat Abiola was a lady of elegance, the highly resourceful wife of MKO Abiola, second only to Simbiat, the first in whose house Abiola first ate fried eggs during their dating days! Kudi was a rallying force, a beehive of ideas, a freedom fighter and for me the best 1st lady Nigeria never had. It will therefore not be out of place for any first lady in Nigeria to desire to be like her, Erelu Bisi Fayemi is not out of order for wanting to complement her husband's walk in the footsteps of th...

THE Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, last week returned the issue of floating the nation’s currency, naira, to the front burner, when, while speaking at the Mid-Term Ministerial Performance Review Retreat, he called for a review of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) foreign exchange management strategy on the basis that the naira value “is artificially low” and impedes the inflow of investments. Osinbajo had said, “As for the exchange rate, I think we need to move our rates to be as...

NIGERIANS deserve congratulations for winning the epic legislative battle for electronic transmission of their votes in future elections. This should be a lesson for us to pay close attention to proceedings in our various legislative houses. It has been proved, times without number, that our so-called representatives often do not represent us but themselves. Under the All Progressives Congress regime, efforts to amend the Electoral Act 2010 to upgrade our democratic process have been seria...

In a scathing indictment of Pastor RUGA Osinbajo, activist Omoyele Sowore described Osinbajo “as dangerous as his principal, Buhari.” On Monday, Sowore reacted to what Pastor RUGA told top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in Britain during an interactive session. “I have said it several times that @ProfOsinbajo is as dangerous as his principal, @MBuhari!” “They plot all the evils afflicting this country together.” “He’s in on every action of the regime. Because Muhammadu Buhari’s decei...

In my traditional background, tigers are well revered. They are considered animals with enormous strength, fearless. When the time to do battle comes, they never hide under any shade to invoke flimsy excuses, regardless of who the opponent may be. They roar, and then rise with astonishing rapidity to pounce. On the contrary, the same cannot be said of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu who though thinks himself a Police Tiger, appears to find his strength only when hunting ...

When I saw the viral video of students at an Islamic school in Kwara state being flogged for violating school rules, I couldn’t help but remember my time attending Islamic schools in Lagos Island. Although I had received some incredible beatings at the hands of my teachers as well, I wasn’t so humiliated as having the videos of my flogging posted for the world to see. Perhaps the only good thing to have come out of this episode is that the viral outcome of the video culminated in the Kwara State...

By October 20th, the #LekkiMassacre and such other bloodlettings to halt the greatest Youth movement ever in the history of Nigeria, will be a year old. The same vampires who committed such murderous atrocities never learnt from the Post-#EndSARS violent reactions from the mass of people which torpido the state Armed Forces and their barracks while sending grand shitting assaults into the spines of our thieving crude rulers who have hitterto acted like monsters forcing their crude and destructiv...

Few Yoruba politicians who are profiteers of Fulani minority rule still believe in one Nigeria. These few elites with the collaboration and cooperation of traitors among Yorubas make Fulani domination easy and possible. Majority of Yoruba people are in a hurry to leave Nigeria for Oduduwa Nation. Nigeria is not practicing democracy but minoritarianism. Political Science defines minoritarianism as a “political structure or process in which a minority segment of a population has a certain degre...

The Senate President and other policymakers are quietly moving forward in their consideration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ridiculous request to add about ₦1.6 trillion to the already unmanageable external debt stock of ₦13 trillion. The argument from the presidency is that the new loan will be put into sectors like agriculture, health, energy, education, and others. Of course, this is the same story the federal government sells every time it is about to carry its begging bowl to Washington D...

Dear Mr Emeka Rollas, You may wish to recall that on Thursday, October 7, one of your distinguished colleagues, Mr Chiwetalu Agu was violently arrested, assaulted, thoroughly humiliated and detained by some lawless soldiers for wearing an attire they believed dictator Buhari wouldn’t like, and which they claimed represented Biafra. To start with, is Biafra a criminal offence in Nigeria? But that is not my point at this juncture, we will get to that shortly. My gripe is that you addressed a...
