A Judicial commission of inquiry into the rot that is the moribund Ajaokuta steel company, openly televised like the famous Oputa Panel, will be a clear proof that President Muhammadu Buhari is determined and committed to fight the hydra-headed monster called corruption.
This is necessary in the light of the testimony of Ms Hadiza Natasha Akpoki to the House of Representatives, currently investigating the circumstances around the concession of the Ajaokuta Steel complex and the Itakpe Iron Ore plant.

The mainstream media quoted pastor Tunde Bakare of having said … “Anyone who knows the true state of things in Nigeria will weep for the country…. If you truly know the truth, you will weep, if you know how much we are owing as a nation, you will weep. For 16 years of PDP they borrowed N6 trillion, for three years of APC, they borrowed N11 trillion… And they are not going to pay the debt. You and I, and our children, and our children’s children will pay the debt, unless they write them off again.”

The message was circulated via sms and whatsapp. It read …
“Avoid First Consultants Medical Centre Ltd, Obalende, Lagos, The victim in the first case of Ebola identified in Nigeria has died in the hospital. Do not go near Obalende”.
As I read the message, My mind swung immediately, into unraveling the puzzle. How could the virus have been identified in the patient and by who?

Market women demonstrating against ASUU! Chai!
“Ti iya nla ba gbe’ni san le, gbogbo kekeke ama gun ori eni” … (Editor’s note: When big problems put you down, smaller ones will dance Makossa on top of you )
Most don’t know what ASUU’s agitations are really about. A good percentage of our universities’ products aren’t employable. I for one, won’t employ most of them as they are presently. Continue reading “ASUU, Villain or Hero in yet another struggle”

If the Abami-Eda – Fela Anikulapo-Kuti was alive, he would have commended Pope Francis for showing how to lead the faithfuls this Easter, with his humble act of washing the feet of Prisoners. Men, Women, Catholics, Protestants, Moslems, Humans!! This man is set to bring the Church to people, and change the perception that the Church only takes, but does not give. He is giving Hope, Love, Comfort, Joy, Peace and Life!! This story says a lot about the revolution that will sweep through the Catholic world and the larger Christian faith. May God give Papa Francis the Grace to lead the Church at a time when crime, mediocrity, hate and hopelessness are all celebrated with pomp and pride. Continue reading “Why Fela Anikulapo-Kuti would have Apologized for hating Popes and Catholics”

Supporters of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) pushed their case further yesterday at the Senate, with startling facts on the sector. Senator Ita Enang (Akwa Ibom North East) described the opposition to the 10 per cent host community fund by mostly northern senators as “misplaced”.
Enang, who is also the Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, said that those opposed to the fund should know that over 83 per cent of oil blocks are owned by northerners. But he did not give the number of oil blocks Nigeria has. Senate President David Mark, who seemed to have been shocked by what Enang said, said the Akwa Ibom lawmaker should not be distracted (some senators were grumbling) because he was making an important point. Mark asked Enang whether he could substantiate his claim.

In response to the recent merger of the opposition parties in Nigeria, where Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu and General Mohammad Buhari are key factors to success of the merger, some online commentators and writers have expressed reservation on the workability of the merger based on the Ideological differences of these men. A particular writer went as far as saying that a ‘pious’ Buhari could never had anything in common with a ‘corrupt’ Tinubu but the later just wanted to ride on the back of the former to get to power. Some observers even worried about the composition of the politicians in the opposition’s APC and how they are different from PDP, as so many of them are disgruntled PDP members.

let me set the course straight with a curse … may the fleas from a thousand camels pursue, overtake and torture anyone, who will not allow President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ) put himself up for election, for a second term, as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2015.
The constitution of the country guarantees the inalienable right of any Nigerian to aspire to the highest office in Nigeria – that of the President and commander in chief of the Armed forces. The idea of Rotational Presidency via zoning and other contraptions is purely that of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of Nigeria. Fortunately, GEJ belongs to the PDP and indeed was (s)elected on the platform of the PDP.
