Of economy, pulpits and Nollywood expectations, By Chinwe Ezejiofor

Of economy, pulpits and Nollywood expectations, By Chinwe Ezejiofor Sometime in 2016, #bringbackourcorruption began to trend on the social media. Nigerians, disenchanted with the dire state of the economy in the midst of a war on corruption launched by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government, began to wax nostalgic about yesteryears, the glory days of corruption. In their warped...... more

Nigeria’s economy in the light of DMO’s interventions

Nigeria’s economy in the light of DMO’s interventions In its 56-year history, Nigeria has gone through five recessions, which had damaging economic consequences.

Of the economic downturns, four were caused by the drop in global crude...... more

Nigerian youths as self-enemies, By Bolaji Abdullahi

Nigerian youths as self-enemies, By Bolaji Abdullahi In the last couple of days, I read two articles by two of Nigeria’s most talented youths, Chude Jideonwo and Ohimai Amaize.

Is Abati the new poster boy? By Tony Ademiluyi

Is Abati the new poster boy? By Tony Ademiluyi One of the books I read with relish when I was in secondary school was the Bottled Leopard by Chukwuemeka Ike. One of the themes was culture shock.

Trump era: What's in it for Africa?

Trump era: What's in it for Africa? I moped at the TV screen as President Donald Trump took a walk along the designated parade route, clutching unto his wife's right hand and waving to the enthusiastic crowds.

Exigencies of the war against corruption in Nigeria

Exigencies of the war against corruption in Nigeria To characterise a scale of mass murder that defied the English lexicon, Raphael Lemkin cobbled together a new word: ‘genocide’. He pieced the word together from the Greek word, geno, meaning tribe, nation or people and the Latin word, cide (from the conjugation of caedo) meaning to kill.

National Assembly and the budget process, By Emmanuel Ado

National Assembly and the budget process, By Emmanuel Ado Before 1974 the United States Congress was faced with the same kind of situation confronting the National Assembly – the refusal of President Richard Nixon to spend funds that Congress had approved for projects.

Recession: Between true federalism and clumsy leadership, By Odimegwu Onwumere

Recession: Between true federalism and clumsy leadership, By Odimegwu Onwumere Many Nigerians sorrowfully misconstrue the supposed looting spree that characterised the successive Nigerian governments as the epicentre of the economic muddle the country is facing today.

Self-censorship and security reports, By Yushau A. Shuaib

Self-censorship and security reports, By Yushau A. Shuaib Self-censorship by the media is a moral act of repressing, limiting, holding back or classifying information from public disclosure through mutual understanding.

Imbibing the practice of self-censorship also protects journalists and media...... more

Economic recession and an uncaring President

History of impeachment in Nigeria, By Bernard Balogun The word impeachment was uncommon in the Nigerian political space until 1981, when Alhaji Balarabe Musa, the first Executive Governor of Kaduna State, was impeached.

Decentralising our mindset and expectations, By Odaudu Joel Minister The people of Kogi State are unique: dogged and unrelenting in asking for what is due them.
