MMM and other Ponzi schemes: Let him who has ear hear before it is too late

MMM and other Ponzi schemes: Let him who has ear hear before it is too late As evil as Ponzi schemes and pyramids are, it would be wrong to put all the blames on them for our national decay and corruption. They only reveal who we are. What MMM have revealed about the Nigerian population is that we are a nation void of the true understanding of...... more

Diary of confusion

MMM: Why every participant has already lost

MMM: Why every participant has already lost “Mind your business! Mind your business… I borrowed money, mind your business! To do MMM… mind your business…” Maybe you are thinking what is this prose in the previous paragraph. Well it is a lyric from a rather funky song that is being distributed by MMM participants. My amazement had no...... more

Why the February 6 anti-government protest became imperative Last week, lots of dramatic scenarios played out regarding what then was the proposal by the iconic musician, Mr Innocent Tuface Idibia, to lead out disaffected Nigerians in a nationwide protest against the exorbitant and excruciating cost of living. Before intellectual buffoons confuse economic adversities with the absurdities of their ability...... more

A haunting past

A haunting past The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is having a field day. It is savouring the absence of an opposition party in the country. As an opposition political party that wrested power from a ruling party, even if by default, the APC deserves a full dose of the arsenal, which it used...... more

TuFace: Reactionary Police and The People

TuFace: Reactionary Police and The People For some days now the most important news is the proposed National Civil Right Action Against Bad Economic Policies, scheduled for February 6, 2017, initiated by the irrepressible social crusader and musical icon, Innocent Tuface Idibia.

Chasing shadows

Chasing shadows The militarisation of the eastern  states of Nigeria over the activities of separatist organisations is an inappropriate response to matters of this nature.

Lest Buhari becomes a ‘Captive King’, By Segun Adeniyi

Lest Buhari becomes a ‘Captive King’, By Segun Adeniyi Following the 2015 general election, I decided to write a book, not only to find out why and how President Goodluck Jonathan lost but also to interrogate the recruitment process that keeps producing lacklustre leaders who are neither prepared nor have clear vision of what they would do in office.

So there was...... more

Onoghen and the clouds of uncertainty

Onoghen and the clouds of uncertainty This morning in my small office somewhere in the nation’s capital, I had the fortune of chancing on my old school notebook, which I used in my philosophy-first-year in 1988, and the aspect that pulled greater interest was where I wrote down the functions of a social psychologist. I had written...... more

Making haste slowly

Making haste slowly If you say that Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the Governor of Enugu State, is making haste slowly, you will be stating the obvious. He is neither showy nor insular. He is a clear-headed realist, who knows when and where to draw the line. Indeed, the governor is making a steady stride, but he...... more

Politicising religion

Politicising religion Something untoward is happening in Nigeria. An unholy mix between religion and politics has begun. It is an aberration. Yet the trend is growing.
