Atiku Is A Miserable Wayward Chicken That Can Fly

🕔16:03, 11.Apr 2019

Ordinarily, chickens in the traditional Igbo society are not expected to fly. Those who fly are scorned at, treated as wayward and termed “okuko-enu”. Such chickens are prevented from flying by the clipping of their wings. Chief Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate in the 2019 Presidential election is now a miserable wayward chicken that has been flying around and pooping after he lost an election.

The Sham Called The Nigerian Civil Service

🕔06:29, 9.Apr 2019

Praise the Lord! Today is a departure from the norm. I want to give the Nigerian political space and the politicians a breathing space. Nonetheless, there may be cause to throw jibes at them in the long run. But verily, the nitty-gritty of this piece does not really concern the political class. It is for the sham called the Nigerian civil service and its occupiers called the Nigerian civil servants.

I just watched a video clip of your #March4Zamfara. First, I must commend you for calling attention to the deteriorating security situation in Zamfara state. What is happening in that state and most states in Nigeria proves that our country is currently being led by a President and Commander-In-Chief whose rank as a General in the Army ought to be investigated. Our silence over it is nothing short of a moral tragedy.

Nigeria Customs Service: A Cesspit of Corruption

Nigeria Customs Service: A Cesspit of Corruption

🕔07:16, 6.Apr 2019

Judging from all indications, it does appear that there is no government institution in Nigeria today that is most currently stinking of corruption than the Nigerian Customs Service. Of course, not a handful of people may be aware that the Nigerian Police Force had in the recent past consistently maintained an unenviable lead as the most corrupt government institution in Nigeria, for years. Yet a dispassionate and cursory look at the current inner workings of the Nigerian Customs Service under its present leadership will certainly reveal that it apparently has overtaken the Nigerian Police Force with respect to the extremely high level of corrupt practices massively going on there, which of course is a great negation of the very reason for which the Muhammadu Buhari-led government went against the long years of tradition and conventional rule of appointing the Controller-General of Customs from within the Service itself – ostensibly in an attempt to bring about sanity and change which originally informed the decision of Mr. President to impose a so-called no-nonsense retired army Colonel, Hammed Ibrahim Ali, on the Customs establishment.
