    | Leave a comment

    Nigerians prefer to buy and sell. Millionaires in Nigeria do not establish factories   because of our insatiable haste to make money – going into manufacturing is too long a time to make money quick. A greater number of youths of the eastern extraction, Igbo are in shops all over learning in practical terms without education,…

    Since our independence in October 1960 we cannot say for sure that we have had any government that ruled the country to the satisfaction of all – agreed no government can please everybody. Before the military terminated the First Republic, we cannot say we were quite satisfied with the leadership. Each time the military terminated…

    Boko Haram, The Way Out

    | 2 Comments

    The menace of Boko Haram has been with us for a couple of years and rather than abetting, it has regrettably been on the increase with, not just the killing of hundreds of innocent citizens, but most recently the abduction of school girls. We can only say the insurgents are faceless, we cannot say they…

  • Criticism, The Nigerian Way

    | Leave a comment

    Criticism comes from the word – criticise – which the Oxford Dictionary defines as ‘discuss critically,’ ‘censor.’ A critic is “one who pronounces judgment,’ censurer,’ or ‘one skilled in textual criticism,’ while critical is defined as ‘fault-finding.’ Criticism should not be made to destroy but to repair, make good and even better to achieve the…

  • Nigerians And Elections

    | Leave a comment

    Since independence, Nigerians have never shown any genuine  volition towards having a free and fair election.
