Is CCT the nightmare of public officers or mercenary of the executive? By Fredrick Nwabufo

Is CCT the nightmare of public officers or mercenary of the executive? By Fredrick Nwabufo On September 21, 2011, the hearing room of the Code of Conduct Tribunal was overflowing with lawyers, journalists and spectators. A “big masquerade” was expected to be huddled in the dock.  It was Bola Ahmed Tinubu.  Tinubu was a leading figure of the opposition at the time. And it was really...... more

Leftists on ‘tribalism’: 70 years ago, By Edwin Madunagu

Leftists on ‘tribalism’: 70 years ago, By Edwin Madunagu At the beginning it was called “tribal politics”; then it became “ethnic politics”; and, now, it is evolving into “identity politics”. But the phenomenon remains what it has always been – from colonialism to all its bourgeois successors. Sometimes it lies in low intensity – and many people forget it is...... more

Between the moribund Nigeria Airways and domineering Ethiopian Airlines, By Folu Olamiti, FNGE

Between the moribund Nigeria Airways and domineering Ethiopian Airlines, By Folu Olamiti, FNGE To say Nigeria-the supposed Giant of Africa-is without a national airline, befuddles right thinking Nigerians. Once buoyant Nigeria Airways came to into limelight in 1958 after the dissolution of West African Corporation, WAAC. It began operation on October 1, 1958; and in 1971, it was rebranded to the name it had...... more

Memo to so-called comrades, By Kassim A. Gamawa

Memo to so-called comrades, By Kassim A. Gamawa This memo automatically goes to the so-called comrades, as well as the self-proclaimed activists whom I absolutely much pity and underrate, because of the roles they played as comrades (by engaging fully in partisan politics) during the just-concluded 2019 general election. However, the most unfortunate and pitiful part of the event...... more

Charlatans in Abia politics, By Obilo Ogbonna

Charlatans in Abia politics, By Obilo Ogbonna One of the major drawbacks in the politics of Abia State is the preponderance of charlatans or people without any known identity or address of any type. For example, one Mr Ben Godson had no restraint in mentioning the name of High Chief Ikechi Emenike in his so-called press briefing. Godson,...... more

With Buhari’s handling of security, were Nigerians too hard on Jonathan? asks Fredrick Nwabufo

With Buhari’s handling of security, were Nigerians too hard on Jonathan? asks Fredrick Nwabufo There are byzantine vibrations about the Nigerian. He is like a banshee wailing against the failings of power when his belly is empty; when he is not within the circle of influence and when the holder of power is not his “religious or ethnic brother”. As soon as he is fed;...... more

Wall builders will become prisoners of their own barriers, By Benjamin Obiajulu Aduba

Wall builders will become prisoners of their own barriers, By Benjamin Obiajulu Aduba I like to describe Pope Francis as my kind of Pope. The Catholic Church is blessed with worthy men who have become popes. Each of the last four popes has brought a different attribute to his papacy. Some have been theologians and professors and used their intellectual powers to expand or...... more

Nigeria, like Afghanistan, is a country haunted by the blood of innocents, it can't make progress, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Nigeria, like Afghanistan, is a country haunted by the blood of innocents, it can't make progress, By Fredrick Nwabufo The life of a cat in Europe is much more valuable and protected than the life of a Nigerian living in Nigeria.  In fact, there is a European convention for the protection of pet animals. Article 3 of this convention states: “Nobody shall cause a pet animal unnecessary pain, suffering or...... more

Unpatriotic judicial witch-hunt of patriotic Nigerians, By Femi Adeniyi

Unpatriotic judicial witch-hunt of patriotic Nigerians, By Femi Adeniyi  Law courts are globally presumed to be temples of justice where impartial judgements are dispensed.

Is organising protests now big business? asks Fredrick Nwabufo

Is organising protests now big business? asks Fredrick Nwabufo You must understand that some things do not happen naturally here. Protests, in particular, are not organic or “an act of God”, at least not now; there is usually a “mighty hand” in the shadows pulling the strings. Unlike in the past, when men of good conscience like Gani Fawehinmi, Wole...... more

How do we deal with a ‘problem’ like the Igbos? asks Chido Onumah

2019 Presidential Election: How Buhari won the battle but lost the war, By SKC Ogbonnia Any objective history on the ills of the 2019 election ought to begin with how President Muhammadu Buhari backpedaled the wheel of Nigeria’s democratic journey by refusing to sign into law the reforms to the Nigeria’s Electoral Act.

Do the Igbo and the Yoruba know they are sons of ‘Oduduwa’? asks Fredrick Nwabufo

Do the Igbo and the Yoruba know they are sons of ‘Oduduwa’? asks Fredrick Nwabufo And the Supreme Being commissioned Oduduwa, a “sky-god”, to carry out a terrestrial task; he descended from heaven with a cockerel which had six fingers. And the earth was made by him through the ingenious deployment of his avian subject.  But that was after ‘Atewonro’ had sprinkled some dirt on the...... more

Needless ethnic tension, By Muyiwa Akintunde

Needless ethnic tension, By Muyiwa Akintunde Given the tension that enveloped last Saturday’s election in some parts of Lagos, I am supposed to hate the Igbo. Right?
