Dangiwa’s letter

"At this time and in the light of all that have happened since you took office, any conversation with you Mr. President cannot gloss over the chaos that has overtaken appointments into government offices in your administration. All those who wish you and the country well must mince no words in warning you that Nigeria has become dangerously polarized and [...]

How are the mighty fallen!

Insults mean nothing to me. They only fuel my resolve and strengthen my determination. They are like water off a duck's back and neither can they deter me from speaking my mind on any pressing or burning issue no matter how unpopular my position may be. Those that do not have the presence of mind or the discipline to read beyond [...]

Sources: ISIS planning to sack Boko Haram from its network

This was revealed in a survey carried out by the International Terror Monitoring Group (ITMG), a global monitoring group on the [...]

Weep not for Fayose, weep for Nigeria

"When Fayose won in 2014, the whole of Ekiti erupted with joy. In 2018 the APC "won" and all the streets of Ekiti are looking so gloomy. The people are sad because their will has been truncated" - Adeolu Daramola.  My friend and brother, Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, is not infallible. He is not an angel and like every other mortal, he has his own fair [...]

Biafra, Buhari and his ‘soft’ civil war

History teaches us that there is only one thing that is more painful to the victims of mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide than the act itself and that is the tacit denial by its orchestrators and perpetrators that it ever took place. One of the most wicked and despicable lies that President Muhammadu Buhari has ever told is that [...]

A tribute to Baba Ayo Adebanjo

If there were ever a man that were worthy of celebration in the context of Nigerian history, power and politics that man is Baba Ayo Adebanjo. I must confess that I find it difficult to write about him simply because I’ve mentioned him so many times in write-ups over the years and there is so much to say. I am [...]

    An apology for what?

An apology for what?

I received the news of the apology offered to the Nigerian people by my friend and brother Prince Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the PDP, with mixed feelings. For goodness sake what is the apology for? Is it the great achievements of President Olusegun Obasanjo or the commendable strides of President Goodluck Jonathan? In my view Secondus' apology was ill-conceived and [...]

Bola Tinubu and those who want him dead

I do not like to delve into matters touching and concerning the APC because I am not a member. However what is happening in the ruling party today transcends partisan politics and should be a concern to us all. At the very least we can learn some very hard lessons from it. The truth is that the behaviour of Chief John Odige-Oyegun [...]

Okupe, PDP and the futility of compromise

When I warned the Nigerian people about what the APC represented and that, if given power, they would be the most reactionary, repressive, vindictive, insensitive, vicious, thin-skinned, paranoid, divisive and, worse of all, incompetent government in the history of Nigeria no one listened. When I told the people that the leaders of the APC were not only unfit to hold power [...]

Niger Delta campaigners, Hajj pilgrims and the United States of Nigeria (I)

"If Boko Haram kills Christians and burns down churches, we will slay Muslims and raze down mosques. We want to warn them that we, the Niger Delta youths, in this 21st century will not accept the killing of innocent Christians or the burning of churches. That if they try it in the north or any part of Nigeria, we the [...]
