“I hope you have a copy of the election results. The constituents, for example, gave me 97% cannot in all honesty be treated on some issues with constituencies that gave me 5%.” -       President Muhammadu Buhari.   The above quote by President Buhari painfully summarises the philosophy of Nigeria’s governing elite.  To them, the equality o [...]

I Still Don’t Do Politics

column picture
Two weeks ago, we started with a discussion of why it is important that we populate the political space with competent and skilled people rather than what it is today, where a lot of mediocrities and charlatans parade themselves as politicians, taking decisions on the lives of people who are more endowed than them. Today’s title should have b [...]

MC Nwankwo: Monetary Policy Rigmarole

Just yesterday, the CBN came up with a new Monetary Policy Rate (MPR), reviewing it upward from 12% to 14%. As a sociologist, I may not have requisite academic expertise to speak on core economic issues. However, my 6 years career in the banking industry exposed me to some elementary professional knowledge and experience in both micro and mac [...]

OUTSIDE THE BOX BY ALEX OTTI “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors” Plato (428BC to 347BC). Those were the wise words of Plato donkey years ago. If those words were true in those days, they are even truer today. Today’s title is derived from a conversation between two [...]

Yesterday they stole our votes

ndukwe
In the wake of the blatant rape of justice by the Justice Adeniyi Onigbanjo-led Election Petition Tribunal in Abia State this week, many have wondered why the rest of the nation seems to be silent on the assault going on in Abia State. Indeed, it has been alleged by those who should know, that the panel was bought with the sum of N200million [...]

The time for change is now

We cannot be angry enough at the goings on in Abia State.  It will be the height of irresponsibility on the part of our people if we allow the present crop of low quality individuals to, having raped our state sore, impose a leadership bereft of ideas and original thought on us. While we may have previously acceded to the wisdom of our politi [...]

Thoughts on Abia…

The tragedy of Abia State is not that we have a governor who falls short of having even the barest leadership traits needed for leading an electoral ward. The tragedy is that we have men and women who, having reached the zenith of their different careers nationally and globally, do not, or cannot find the courage to talk to a god of rust tin [...]

Who will Buhari pick as his VP candid...

In my opinion, the success – or otherwise – of the APC in the coming election at the presidential level lies not so much in the choice of it’s presidential candidate, but in that of the running mate. Contrary to the calculations bandied about by APC loyalists, the party cannot afford to leave out the South East and South Sou [...]

In a letter addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Kalu hinged his decision on the insistence of the current state governor, Chief T.A. Orji, to handpick all Abia State’s representatives  in next year&# [...]
