In Nigeriia of today, under the clueless leadership of Buhari, Pantamism has come to join the ranks of notorious “Isms” that deals particularly in the Afliction of the Nigerian people with the virulent disease of terrorism.  Just like how the regime deodarized corruption, Buhari’s recent endorsement of Pantami is nothing short of the institutionalization of terrorism and religious extremism. it translates to the legitimization of the ongoing terrorism in the north and unfair vilification of thousands of those who have fallen victim, some in fatal dimension, of religious extremism that…

General Muhammadu Buhari as agent provocateur uses government power and machinery – armed forces, police, security agencies, judiciary, etc., to undermine, subjugate, oppress, and terrorize non-Fulani critics, activists, dissidents, who speak truth to power.

Busybodies Outside The Gates, By Azu Ishiekwene

Bill and Melinda Gates had barely finished saying the “D” word when all kinds of marriage counsellors and grief-mongers besieged social media with suggestions of why they think the couple is breaking up. The sentiments, ranging from the probable to the bizarre, with a sprinkling of fictional tales in between, have defied the couple’s request for privacy. Misery loves company. Some accounts even make you wonder if the composers might have had a bedside view of the 27-year-old marriage.  A break-up is a messy thing. You don’t have to experience…

Tinubu, Break Up Of Nigeria Acceptable To Us By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu rehashing the old tired worn out cliche by the destroyers of Nigeria and enemies of Oduduwa Nation said: “I have nowhere I am going. Whoever has experienced war in the past will not pray for such. Nigeria will not separate; it’s not acceptable to us. God will not allow Nigeria to experience it (war). If we say Nigeria should separate, people should remember what war caused in Sudan and Iraq.” Everyone has ambition. Ambition entails healthy balance of hunger and humility, perseverance and perspective. Tinubu’s ambition…

Nigeria’s National Assembly, A Democratic Disaster Fuelling The Arrogance Of The Worst “President” In The World By Elias Ozikpu

One prominent point that must be established at this crucial time in the political history of Nigeria is the clear fact that Nigeria’s major problem is the National Assembly – the House of Representatives and the Senate, whose members were elected from different parts of Nigeria, not just to pass bills but to also keep an eye on the possible excesses of the executive. This is in recognition of the doctrine of separation of powers and checks and balances. But are there checks and balances in present-day Nigeria? If I…

Who Wants To Overthrow Buhari? By Fredrick Nwabufo

When there are murmurs and whispers of a putsch, someone somewhere may be fiddling with the sticks. Where there is smoke, there is fire. Turning and turning in the widening gyre, the hawks and vultures circle seeking supper from anarchy and insecurity in the land. But may it never be said that Nigeria experienced a coup d’état after 22 years of democratic experiment.  In political science, coups are often governed by the zeitgeist – the prevailing mood of the time. In the 70s, 80s and 90s coups were fashionable in…

Fr. Mbaka’s Sin By Reuben Abati

Fr Ejike Mbaka, Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu attracts controversy the way flies are attracted to dung. He is completely unfazed about it. He comes across as a priest who does not mind what Pope Francis once referred to as “the sin of scandal”. Last week, Fr. Mbaka stirred the hornet’s again when he announced to his congregation that he had changed his mind about President Muhammadu Buhari, or perhaps he had received another message from God to the effect that if Nigeria’s President Buhari does not resign…

Rev. Fr. Mbaka’s Spiritual Somersaults By Ozodinukwe Okenwa

Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka is the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry in the coal city of Enugu. From the testimonies of those that have attended his services he is into deliverance, healing and ministration of the gospel. He is very generous. He employs a horde of folks and helps the needy. He is a successful ‘businessman’ who has investments that generate millions of Naira. Heaven may not count for Mbaka as he values material and non-material things here on earth rather than awaiting to make heaven upon his death. The…

The Benuenisation Of Niger State And The Bandits War By Owei Lakemfa

Those who think the war against banditry is a joke, need to take a look at the statistics coming out of Kaduna State. The long suffering state continues to bleed. In the first 90 days of 2021, an average of four lives were lost daily to banditry while in every 24 hours, 11 persons were kidnapped. Yet, excluding the states devastated by Boko Haram terrorists, Kaduna is not the most traumatised. At least the people still retain their villages and towns. Not so in Plateau State where bandits maim, kill,…
