Sow Injustice, Reap Calamity – By Sam Otti

For 430 years, the Israelites lived under the crushing yoke of slavery in Egypt. The chosen people of God were suppressed by a pagan nation and bound in fetters of repression. Their bare backs bore the scars of hate, lacerated by the merciless whipping of Egyptian taskmasters. A brute dictator, Pharaoh and his officials chastised […]

Insecurity: Speak Out Now Or Die In Silence – By Sam Otti

The clamour for a new security apparatus in Nigeria that would wrestle to the ground the vicious monsters of crime has been ringing like a church bell.

I just learned that many women in Nigeria are currently caught in the web of the religious swindle known as ‘Spiritual husband.” This is one of the most effective and crafty daggers used by religious slayers known as ‘men of God’ in Nigeria. Currently, it is estimated that thousands of both married and single women […]

Hate Speech by Okechukwu Nwafor

While the Liberian lawmakers have voted to cut down their salaries to save money for their nation, Nigerian lawmakers have voted to establish an agency to deal with hate speech. The problem with the Nigerian lawmakers is that they are misdirected and too idle to indulge in meaningful deliberations. In the end, what the agency […]

Is Nigeria broke?

Nigeria, Africa’s biggest economy, is “heading for bankruptcy” according to the former Central Bank Governor, the  Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II. Speaking on Tuesday he criticised government policy – particularly costly fuel subsidies – for stifling development and fuelling rampant poverty. It sounds alarmist, but he’s right to worry. Growth has been anaemic in […]

Are You Born Again Or Born Before…?

The two set of people I always disagree with in Nigeria are 1: The shameless politicians that don’t care about the suffering people…. And 2; The ‘holy ones’ claiming to be born again and closer to God. These two set of people are linked to the two major factors hindering us from moving forward in […]

An election of tears, sorrow and blood

He woke up to a bright and sunny morning. It is an important day; a time to do his bounden duty to his country. Nothing betokened that it will be his final rite to this “shrine”. Instead of taking his vote, it took his life. A young voter killed at a polling unit in Anyigba, […]

Is Rotimi Amaechi the Judas Iscariot of Nigeria? – By Okechukwu Nwafor

We all are aware of the role Judas Iscariot played during the last days of Jesus Christ on earth. Judas, quite a controversial figure in Christian Theology, betrayed Jesus at the dying minute. He kissed Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and addressed him as “Rabbi” to reveal his identity to the crowd who had […]

As Zamfara beckons on history : Where is John Odigie Oyegun, not John the Baptist, of Nigeria? – By Okechukwu Nwafor

Few months to the 2015 presidential election, there was high level of insecurity in the country, including a bomb blast targeted at Buhari himself, with more than 70 persons dead. APC chieftains and their supporters upped the blame game. They accused President Jonathan of being unable to contain the incessant Boko Haram attacks and the […]

‘Ofeke’ – By Okechukwu Nwafor

It was reported that the Vice President Osibanjo woos Yoruba voters by promising them Presidency in 2023. If this is true then Osibanjo should be advised to relinquish his professorship and hand over his hood to NBA. A word for the Yoruba: it is only a mad animal that will accept the lion as an […]

Where we were and where we are? – By Okechukwu Nwafor

The above onomatopoeic verbiage, obviously derived from the slip of tongue, from the Vice President during the last Vice Presidential debate sends a poignant signal. The first is a question of where we were in the last four years and the second is where we are today. Indeed Osibanjo’s slip of tongue reveals an uncommon […]

Cloned President: Ridicule and failure at the heart of race – By Okechukwu Nwafor

  The video here is very provocative. It is a comedy show that ridicules the recent pronouncement of Nigerian president’s attempt to clear the prevailing doubt, especially by the IPOB group, concerning his true identity. The president had said that he is not a clone, contrary to the wide and wild assertion by IPOB that […]

As Mbaka apologizes, EFCC ‘Mene mene tekel Urphasin’ and touch not my anointed’ – By Okechukwu Nwafor

EFCC should have learnt some lessons from the Mbaka’s episode. Mbaka seems to have tampered with the anointed son of God, Peter Obi. Mbaka’s disgrace of Obi on his alter at Adoration Prayer Ministry Enugu (AMEN) made Obi more popular and occasioned a Social Media war by Obi’s numerous fans against AMEN. It was as […]

Internet flogging and the cry of the ruling elite – By Okechukwu Nwafor

Inundated by the verbal and visual lashings concerning Jubril from Sudan, the Nigerian Social Media have recently become a polemically charged space. Nnamdi Kanu sufficiently marshals out ‘his evidence’ to prove that someone else is masking Buhari in Aso Rock. To Buharists, and to certain highbrow senses, his arguments would rather fit well inside the […]

Atiku: Why politicians cry! – By Okechukwu Nwafor

Atiku’s cry over the purchase of his presidential nomination form by his supporters is but one example of crying politicians not just in the history of Nigerian politics but elsewhere. For example while taking an oath of office, George Washington, President of the United States, was moved to tears when he beheld a mammoth crowd […]

Dear President Buhari, Please Tackle The Excessive Electricity Charges, Nigerians Are Suffering!

Sometimes, I wonder if this government deprives pleasure or more power in watching Nigerians suffer in pains. Is it a crime to be a Nigerian? The excessive electricity charges in Nigeria now is damn crazy! We demand that the Federal Government investigate this issue. They don’t want to distribute the prepaid meters, because they know that their […]
