Martyr Or Political Victim: Our Friend Jesus

🕔08:11, 24.Apr 2019

Martyrdom seems to be the perspective for some as they think about this season. The pity for a man dying for his believes seem like a necessity even as we try to motivate or inspire others to assume that the death of Christ can be reduced to his willingness to do good blinds our hearts to the true meaning of his passions for the cross. I will leave the spiritual analysis for clergy and more interestingly dive into a political perspective and the implications for nation building.

Nigerians Are Really Smart Despite Hertz Fauzan’s Response

Happy Easter. Christ is risen indeed! I open this essay with these lines just to roil Mr. Adiele, Onuorah and Eniola, to get them to the boiling point. Mr. Adiele is an atheist and the story of the risen Christ gets him going. This essay is not about Mr. Adiele’s religion but about Hertz Fauzan’s Response to “Nigerians are really smart”. (https://www.nairaland.com/5140759/why-nigerians-smart) and Mr. Adiele’s support of the idiocy Fauzan displayed (https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite) .

ANALYSIS: Atiku’s Citizenship And Buhari’s Illiterate Lawyers

🕔06:10, 22.Apr 2019

The Danger In Buhari’s Totalitarian Patronage Model

The Danger In Buhari’s Totalitarian Patronage Model

🕔11:55, 17.Apr 2019

Diversity and dynamic opposition are twin catalysts for effective democratic leadership. This explains why Nigeria owes a debt of gratitude to patriots, most notably, Ogbonnaya Onu, Bola Tinubu, and Muhammadu Buhari for sustaining the opposition movement, which culminated in the birth of All Progressives Congress (APC). Similar kudos ought to go to President Goodluck Jonathan for creating the enabling environment that engendered the emergence of the APC, the elusive viable alternative to the then-ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The irony, however, is that Buhari, as president, has adopted a patronage model, which is on pace to decimate the opposition and potentially plunge the nation into a “next level” of crisis.
