Why VP Osinbajo Must Begin Charity At Home

Only wailers would doubt this administration’s love for Nigerians, especially the poor among them. Both President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have shown in their words and actions that they have a special passion for the poor in Nigeria. That is probably the reason why in spite of the unprecedented suicide cases recorded in the last five years of this administration; the number of job losses (Nigeria Bureau of Statistics says 3.3 million people lost their jobs in nine months); and acute poverty in the land, the President…

Nigeria Breeding Children Of Anger Everyday

At times like this, one can’t help but go down memory lane and be thankful for some divine helps here and there; for a privilege as great  as undergoing the National Youth Service Corps scheme when Nigeria was still a nation and not nations within a nation as it is today.  I remember my first trip to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja as a prospective youth corps member.  I had left Lagos early in the morning for the capital city. But I arrived there late. Unfortunately, I had passed the…

The Rescue Captain Turns 65, Rejects Celebrations Due To Taraba Killings

A couple of weeks ago, I sought for and got an audience with my boss, Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku. The venue was his main office in Government House, Jalingo and my mission was to first remind him of his 65th birthday anniversary which was fast approaching and then seek his permission to make some elaborate arrangements for a befitting celebration in the media. What I got was an emphatic rejection of the celebration plan. But he was quick in providing an explanation, perhaps, to assuage my feeling of disappointment. “How…

PMB’s Second Term: Ain’t No Stopping Us Now, We’re On The Move

Those who were young (men-about-town) in the 80s will remember the 1979 hit track by McFadden & Whitehead, titled Ain’t no stopping us now. The lyrics goes thus: Ain’t no stopping us now! We’re on the move! Ain’t no stopping us now! We’ve got the groove! And if you ponder and reflect on the political journey of President Muhammadu Buhari, right from 2003, when he threw his hat into the ring, till now, there have been spirited attempts to stop him. It got to a head in the build up…

BUKOLA SARAKI, HERE IS YOUR WREATH

BY AKOGUN IYIOLA OYEDEPO Every 15th day of January, Nigerian leaders must lay wreath at the cenotaph of our fallen soldier heroes. Cenotaph is built in memory of the fallen heroes and sometimes they are unknown soldiers that kept the country together with their own blood. The wreath is laid for their gallantry and the sacrifice to keep Nigeria one. But then the wreath is laid for the dead, not for the living. When a politician of high profile falls in political battle field and the fall is total and…

Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo: Kwarans, Lest We Forget

Human memory is short. Tyrannical regimes thrive or endure on the shortness of human memory. When Jesus Christ wanted to enter Jerusalem, it was through loud ovation of hosanna; but shortly after, the opportunity availed the same people before Pilate to set Christ free of false accusation and there was a choice between that innocent soul and robbers, the man that fed thousands, made the blind to see, caused the cripple to walk, raised the dead was pronounced condemned to a painful death on the cross. They said the robbers…

Ozekhome: Fanning Embers Of Disunity, Subjugation Of Igbo Race

On February 27, 2019, lawyer and activist, Mike Ozekhome, wrote a piece under the headline, ‘Buhari’s skewed view of the Igbo race.’ On face value, the piece seemed to advocate the cause of the Igbo race, but a dispassionate analysis shows it for what it truly is: drivel meant to incite the Igbo against the Muhammadu Buhari administration, and further inflame passions that would pedestal the ethnic nationality against the rest of the federation. Ozekhome appeared to be a friend to our brothers and sisters across the Niger, but in…
