The Dangers of President Jonathan’s Desperation
Thu May, 02 2013
The body language of President Jonathan these days betrays everything but ease. It betrays defiance. Not often do we see the lips of this rather innocent and calm looking middle-aged man drawn tightly together and pointed, the wrinkles around the eyes drawn loosely upwards with the forehead pointedly squeezed to produce the unbefitting stern looks of a defiant rebel.
Run, Jonathan Run For 2015!
Tue Mar, 12 2013
The pesky ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan to seek a second term in office was given the green light by an Abuja High Court ruling. Though he has remained coy – a loud silence to me – on his ambition to seek re-election, his body language, actions and inactions have suggested he is set to run for a second term. He seem to be fully persuaded for 2015 by the trappings of Aso Rock, the lure of power, fame, a horde of sycophants and hangers-on whose only interest is another four years of the
Gender Equality Is Essential Across All MDGs
Mon Mar, 04 2013
A national level consultation on "Reducing Gender Inequalities: A Possible Framework for Post 2015" was recently held at Nawabganj, Unnao. Organized by the National Mission for Empowerment of Women (NMEW), Government of India, and supported by the UN Women South Asia, it was hosted by the Centre for Advocacy and Research and brought together leading civil society groups, think tank bodies and academicians to deliberate on the strengths and weakness of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); t
Light At The End Of The Power Tunnel
Sun Mar, 03 2013
The Goodluck Jonathan Administration has just gained significant confidence of the power sector investment community with the signing of a range of industry and transaction agreements that pave way for successful generation and distribution companies to take control of the new corporate entities unbundled from the PHCN.
Patience Jonathan As A Metaphor
Fri Mar, 01 2013
Nigerians were yet to come to terms with the FCT Minister’s budgetary allocation of N4billion naira to the office of the first lady - that has never been recognized by the country’s constitution from 1960 to 1999 - for the proposed construction of the African First Ladies’ Peace Mission (AFLPM) Secretariat in Abuja when news filtered in of the First Lady’s half a billion naira thanksgiving party at Aso Rock Villa to celebrate her “resurrection,” or sojourn in the land of the dead. I joined milli
Ibori: Olusegun Adeniyi’s Despotic Journalism
Sat Nov, 03 2012
Why would Olusegun Adeniyi disdain the variegated and controversial aspects of the $15 million bribery allegation Mr. Nuhu Ribadu levelled against Chief James Onanefe Ibori in his September 20, 2012 column, entitled “Strictly Confidential: Can I Trust You?”
Jonathan’s Administration: Confronting Simple Problems with Drastic and Complex Solutions
Tue Sep, 25 2012
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ~Leonardo DaVinci A good summary of Steve Job’s autobiography by Walter Isaacson could be aptly put: “simplicity”. Job committed his entire life to turning complex human technological problems into a simple easy to handle tech marvel anyone and everyone can use. No wonder people of all hue will readily pay any price to lay their hands on any Apple products. The current regime in Nigeria on the other hand could easily enter the Guinness Book of Reco
Mr. President, His Critics And Nigerians
Fri Aug, 31 2012
The President of the Federal Republic, Doctor Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, is certainly feeling the heat. Who would not in a complex polity as Nigeria with myriads of problems and contending forces? And when you throw in the Boko Haram challenge, rumblings from different ethnic nationalities angling for bigger pie from the national cake and the antics of political actors whose eyes are fixated on the 2015 Presidential race into the mix , then it is obvious that leading such a country cannot be
Barth Nnaji’s Resignation Is Testament To The Need For Public Declaration Of Asset
Wed Aug, 29 2012
“No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bias his judgment, and not improbably, corrupt his integrity. With equal, nay with greater reason, a body of men are unfit to be both judges and parties at the same time.” -James Madison
Conversation With Henry Okah
Mon Jun, 25 2012
Long before the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) selected a group of eminent Nigerians to represent its interest in an anticipated negotiation with the late Yar’Adua’s administration in 2009; I had penned a series of essays articulating what the problems were, and what the solution should be. Frankly, I never asked why I was chosen, but my suspicion was that my public commentaries brought me to the attention of the justice-seeking group.
Uduaghan: Deconstructing The “Ant Hill” Politics Of Asaba Airport
Fri Jun, 01 2012
From a distance, it must be hard to feel excitement at the news gripping the Asaba airport project particularly the controversy of the alleged cost to clear what critics described as “ant hills” around the area for the facility to achieve a four-kilometer stretch runway required for landing of bigger aircrafts. Frankly, such controversy should really matter to anyone with an interest in the fate of this ambitious project and this is why all responsible deltans should actually be concerned.
An Open Letter To Nigeria’s News Media
Wed May, 02 2012
“To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the … public” - Theodore Roosevelt 1918.
Next Governor Of Delta State: Stupidity In Akpevwe Onokoja’s Argument
Mon Apr, 23 2012
Ordinarily Akpevwe Onokoja’s advertorial and its sponsors in the Vanguard of Monday April 23, 2012 highlighting what in their wild dream were supposed to be cogent reasons why the Delta Central Senatorial District must produce the next governor of Delta state come 2015, would have been ignored and dismissed as the ranting of hollow food-is-ready-village-politicians but for the expressed arrogance and insult against the well-polished Anioma people.
