Nigerians Deserve PDP. By Babayola M. Toungo

Thank God for the Moroccans, the Gooddluck Jonathan gang have been exposed for what they are – a bunch of thieving liars.  Knowing fully well that Jonathan did not speak on phone to the Moroccan monarch, they went to town with a story that a phone conversation took place between Jonathan and King Mohammed VI.  The no nonsense King ordered the immediate recall of his country’s Ambassador to Nigeria and issued a press statement, which in essence, called the Nigerian ruler a liar. Details

 

Ethnicity’s Persisting Divisiveness – Restrictions On Nigeria’s Political Development. By Andrew Obinna Onyearu

Second, there should a nationally discussed and accepted position – included in our laws – on the concept of rotational leadership variously described as zoning.  Given its importance across the country and at all levels of governance, it seems bewildering that such an important issue should constitute the subject of such shuddering casualness. Details

 

Letter To Nigerians. By Murtala Maikaba

This is the time for Nigeria to redeem itself in the eyes of those who have been doubtful about the feasibility of the country’s democratic project, the country must learn to organise  transparent polls in order to confirm that the era when a few miscreant politicians would hold the nation to ransom has passed. Details

 

President Jonathan’s Attempted Conversation With Moroccan King: The Buhari Connection. By Abdulbasit Mukhtar

However, the unfortunate and undiplomatic response from Nigeria that the conversation happened did not take into account that there are diplomatic systems in other climes which take their jobs seriously and release timely information. By claiming that both leaders spoke at length, in France rather than in Morocco, the president and his information handlers have shown Nigerians and the world the kind of transformation that has happened to our foreign affairs and diplomacy in the Jonathan era. Details

 

Buhari is the Best Among the Presidential Candidates. By Dr. Abayomi Ferreira

The election of the President of Nigeria on 28 March 2015 is a serious business where every true Nigerian should make up his mind on who to vote for. The issues are clear: competence, integrity, honesty, ability to tackle the insurgency and the need to eradicate corruption. Details

 

The Tragedy Of Nigeria’s Journalism. By Godwin Onyeacholem

For anyone who truly lays claim to the practise of journalism in Nigeria, this is the time to shield the face from a big shame. It is a season of great disappointment and embarrassment. Not to talk of immeasurable sorrow and unrelieved nausea. This period really induces vomiting. And, boy, does journalism on this space stink! Details

 

The Offensive Against Boko Haram: Four Years Late. By Babayola Toungo

President Goodluck Jonathan is irritatingly boring and endlessly annoying in equal measures.  For a Commander in Chief to come out and tell Nigerians that he underestimated a threat like the Boko Haram is the height of irresponsibility.  This same man who is now telling us he underestimated Boko Haram was the same man who declared state of emergency on three north-eastern states on three different occasions for a total of eighteen months.  If he underestimated Boko Haram, why did he declare the state of emergency that was ruinous to the people and the area all this while? Details

 

That the Falcon May Heed the Call of the Falconer. By Taofeek Lawal

Bearing upon series of permutations, game-theory experimentations and dangerous political manipulations by the camp of Mr. President, before and after the baseless postponement of an election earlier slated for 14th February, 2015, one may find it very difficult to ignore the hypothesis that Dr. Goodluck   Jonathan may be acting a script afterall; and that script is apparently towards the eventual break-up of the geographical expression called Nigeria. Details

 

Fayose & The Buhari Health “Watch”. By Babayola M. Toungo

The audio recording by one captain Sagir Koli of the Nigerian Army that went viral on how officials of the PDP and the government used the army to rig the 2014 Ekiti state gubernatorial election and the interview granted Sahara Reporters by the same Army officer, made clear to me the fixation of Ayodele Fayose with General Muhammadu Buhari.  Fayose was the beneficiary of the rigging scheme which sent Kayode Fayemi out of the Ekiti government house and he is scared of what will happen to him in the event Buhari wins the rescheduled 2015 presidential election. Details

 

On Nigerian Elections: Let the Constitution Speak. By Leonard Karshima Shilgba

I hear about the rumor that the Chairman of INEC may be removed from office by the president. This will not happen. I say this not because of the denial offered by Mr. President at the February 11 Presidential Media chat. I base my confidence on the law, which is the only guarantee of civility. A newspaper reported that the INEC chairman would only continue in that office by the grace of Mr. President after March 24. This is utter nonsense! Details

 

A Logical Assessment Of Dr. Paul Mamza’s “Obj In The Cusps Of Tumultuous Hallucinations (1)”. By Jibo Nura

Dear Dr. Mamza, Jonathan betrays Obasanjo politically by refusing to listen to him on matters of national importance. Remember, it all started with a formal letter from Obasanjo, which outlined certain dangerous political trends in Jonathan’s style of leadership that would land Nigerian state in serious trouble by possibly tearing it apart. Details

 

Cost of Governance And Public Administration Reform. By Dr. Otive Igbuzor

There are several reasons why the cost of governance is increasing in Nigeria. The first is corruption. There is hardly any ministry, department or agency that will conduct staff audit and not discover “ghost workers.” Many of the recurrent expenditure in the public service is an avenue for corruptly enriching a few people. The second reason is inefficiency, waste and duplication. Details
