What is the worth of a Nigerian migrant’s life?

What is the worth of a Nigerian migrant’s life? In April, a former Nigerian public official lost his daughter under questionable circumstances. The young lady’s death was avoidable. Who knows, maybe her spirit is already haunting the United Kingdom hospital and another one in Nigeria. A hospital in Birmingham misdiagnosed her condition; the one in Nigeria performed surgery on her...... more

In Anambra, history offers Buhari one golden moment, By Emma Agu

In Anambra, history offers Buhari one golden moment, By Emma Agu How times change!   Here is a man who not a few Igbo believe, hates them with a passion.

Omokri: Between loyalty and insanity, By Femi Odere

Omokri:  Between loyalty and insanity, By Femi Odere For those Nigerians who’re new to Nigeria’s political discourse and its murkily unpredictable, hair-splitting political environment, but have been wondering why Reno Omokri seems fixated in turning the truth on its head about the Jonathan presidency – despite the many heaps of incontrovertible evidence that stands like the Rock of Gibraltar...... more

Of Dasuki, memory loss and $2.1 billion fraud charge, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Of Dasuki, memory loss and $2.1 billion fraud charge, By Fredrick Nwabufo   Before I go into the meat of this article, let me state this for the record: The case of Col Sambo Dasuki (retd), former National Security Adviser (NSA), will become one of Nigeria’s unsolved mysteries.

If you picked Buhari over Jonathan in 2015, you did no wrong, By ’Fisayo Soyombo

If you picked Buhari over Jonathan in 2015, you did no wrong, By ’Fisayo Soyombo There are numerous disgruntled Muhammadu Buhari-supporters straddling the social media space.

God forgive me,” one named ‘Hur’...... more

Senate and its basket of empty probes, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Senate and its basket of empty probes, By Fredrick Nwabufo The Nigerian Senate, upper chamber of the National Assembly, is impotent. So impotent that it engages in theatrical probes to conceal the absence of a legislative manhood. I have followed the Senate closely. In fact, I covered that arm of the National Assembly in the past. So, I can say with...... more

Restructuring: What’s wrong with the ‘Abacha Document’?

Restructuring: What’s wrong with the ‘Abacha Document’? But, for the death of Gen Sani Abacha, the much-talked about restructuring of Nigeria would have been in top gear. In more ways than one, it was the death that robbed Nigerians of the opportunity of consigning the hot air over marginalisation, more imagined than real, to the back seat of...... more

6 men who shouldn’t be in Buhari’s government This piece is laden with unsolicited advice. Ordinarily, it should not have been written, but for recent evidence that the quality of advice available to President Muhammadu Buhari is questionable.

The Return of Abdulrasheed Maina, By ’Fisayo Soyombo

The Return of Abdulrasheed Maina, By ’Fisayo Soyombo Abdulrasheed Maina cannot hide forever. Neither he nor the people who helped him circumvent justice in 2013 gave this a thought when he escaped to Dubai. But as he must have found out already, retreating from justice is a big damage to self, rather than the law. And, no matter the...... more

Patterns and parcels of life, By Esther Chizaram Ngele

Patterns and parcels of life, By Esther Chizaram Ngele Life comes in patterns and parcels.

Restructuring: What are we restructuring?

Restructuring: What are we restructuring? The word restructuring (re) structural engineering used to be commonly associated with the civil engineering profession).

Zahra, Aisha Buhari as fashionable Aso Rock Clinic critics, By ’Fisayo Soyombo

Zahra, Aisha Buhari as fashionable Aso Rock Clinic critics, By ’Fisayo Soyombo There are the Buharis who are not Buharists. Credit to Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, the most recent and most persistent proponent of the term Buharism, Buharists can be used loosely without guilt – in this case – to mean political heavyweights or followers in whose eyes Buhari can do no wrong and must, therefore, never be criticised. As there...... more

For Kurds, Palestinians, Catalans, Biafrans: The stage is set, By Confidence MacHarry The end of the Second World War saw the number of countries that achieved statehood and entry into the comity of nations overly double, especially with independence movements following the withdrawal of Western colonial powers from Asia and Africa.

From Marginalisation to Militarisation of South-East, By Chima Nwafo

From Marginalisation to Militarisation of South-East, By Chima Nwafo I fully agree with the motivational speaker who said “to be uninformed is to be deformed.” But in Nigeria today, some folks chose to be uninformed about issues out of ignorance or parochial political interest. That is precisely how politically advantaged Nigerians have treated the officially programmed and systematically implemented policy...... more

Herdsmen and Avengers Are Saints, IPOB and the Rest of Us Are Terrorists, By ’Fisayo Soyombo

Herdsmen and Avengers Are Saints, IPOB and the Rest of Us Are Terrorists, By ’Fisayo Soyombo These are interesting times. We’re entering an interesting, new journalism era when newspaper editors will cast simple headlines, but the public will nevertheless be confused. “Troops kill 14 terrorists in Plateau,” a headline could read.
