In the interview, the President revealed so many things that have a deepening impact on the country. While the politicians concentrated on Buhari’s take on his successor, the Igbo about Nnamdi Kanu, National Assembly members about new electoral law, the governors’ state police, my take as an ordinary Nigerian was the president’s take on the economy and ...

The German philosopher, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, was racist when he wrote about the ‘inferiority’ of African culture but appeared right about the temperamental and emotional nature of black Africans; a pointed type of sensitivity that revealed itself in the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), when he let his emotions extremely stream out heatedly. In his targeted tweet, Buhari warned the Igbo people stating that “those misbehaving today” would be “treated in the language t...

AN avowal by the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, last October that his administration would close all Internally Displaced Persons camps located within Maiduguri by December 31, 2021, seems to be generating concern in many quarters. The anxiety is understandable considering the unrelenting activities of Boko Haram/ISWAP Islamic terrorists, who have been killing, maiming victims, and destroying property amid the military’s continued counter-insurgency operations. The facts on the ground cal...

A Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, recently reopened one of the putrid open sores that besmirch Nigeria when he urged the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to restart investigations into the murder of 20 years ago of Bola Ige, then the Attorney-General of the Federation. By recalling Buhari’s “robust pledge” to open an enquiry into a series of unsolved political murders across the country, Soyinka also reminds Nigerians and the world of the failure of the state to protect its citiz...

Yoruba people have a saying which literally means a child's delinquency which if not curbed or corrected at home will eventually be his albatross when he goes out.

On the two occasions President Muhammadu Buhari was privileged to lead the country, one thing separated him from the pack – honesty of purpose. This is because this is one man who has always been factual, truthful and honest from his growing up days and his unwavering belief that he will one day account for his stewardship before His creator deepened these virtues. Of course, he is not infallible like every other human being, but his greatest desire is the achievement of a better society w...

These include iron (which is made into steel), aluminium, glass, polymer (plastics and fibre reinforced composites, rubber and textile fibres). Traditionally, metal alloys were used but since the last 50 years, plastic materials have been of great...

NIGERIANS living abroad bear an irksome, double burden in the process of remitting money home to their loved ones and for investment purposes. As explained in a new report by the World Bank, the cost of sending money to Nigeria from overseas nearly topped the $3 billion mark in the two years to 2021. This is among the highest in the world. In an economy that is contending with low foreign exchange inflows, the monetary authorities ought to take pragmatic measures to reduce the charges on Diaspor...

The concept of the audacity of hope emanated from the keynote address of Barack Obama at the 2004 Democratic National Congress when he was an Illinois Senator and presidential aspirant.

In a true democracy, the criminal justice system is designed to enforce laws, ensure public safety, and deliver justice to those who have committed crimes. There are three major components of the criminal justice system. These all play an important role in keeping the public safe: Law enforcement, courts, and corrections. Given the chaos, lawlessness, wanton killings, kidnapping, abduction on daily basis, fear, insecurity, riots, lack of direction, and lack of peace, Nigeria, like a class wit...
