Armed Forces Commission: What does Abaribe want again ?

By Idoko Ainoko Every system and in all political dispensations, there are enough spoilers and destroyers. The professional sabs stop at nothing to rock the boat even where the circumstances resist. There are people who hate progress and invent all antics to ensure progress is interrupted. Their only joy is when they cause confusion. Nigeria has a fair share of such people. And unfortunately, they are also found in the corridors of power and they use such positions to pursue personalized agenda at the detriment of the nation. Nigeria’s most…

Growing Confidence in War Against Insurgency

By Sunday Attah     There is no such thing as crisis of confidence in the current war against insurgency in Nigeria. If there is, it wouldn’t have been confined to the hush tones of conspirators but would have been evident in reports of the operations of troops. When Nigerian troops suffered defeat in the hands of insurgents in the previous administration and retreated to other countries for tactical maneuver, the whole world knew that there was a problem on ground that even the military command could not hide. The…

NEMA And How Maihaja Is Fulfilling A Spiritual Mandate

By Evangelist Sunday Attah A larger percentage of the world’s population lives below the poverty line. As nations grapple with how to overcome this, they are not spared from the further debilitating and catastrophic effects of other disasters that aggravate the pitiable conditions of the poor and even increasing their number. Due to this, there have been injunctions by the major religions on assisting the poor and coming to the aid of the needy.

The NASS, obnoxious bills and the rest of us

By Akintunde Babafemi We all know that the National Assembly, NASS wields enormous powers as conferred on them by the laws of our land; but it is not difficult for me or anyone else to discern that this power is often and consistently misused and abused. And, sometimes, it is done in a blackmailing fashion of the executive arm of Government for selfish reasons and personal benefits, even in instances it is glaringly at the detriment of the Nigerian public. It is my conviction that the absoluteness of the powers…

Understanding AI’s Fuss with Nigeria

By Edward Omaga Amnesty International seems to have its operational headquarters in Nigeria. The organization loves Nigeria because the Nigerian platform is that which it uses to gain popularity with its half-baked annual reports that smacks of a mockery of what a report should look be. I am a fan of Amnesty International for just one reason. They are easily predictable. I mean, you could quickly tell when they are mobilized to carry out a hatchet job. They usually go full blast with statements that defeat and defile all sense…

No Twist In President Buhari’s Popularity Index

By Terrence Kuanum It was a mark of President Muhammadu Buhari’s rising profile and towering popularity that a young man who was excited over the president’s outstanding achievements attempted to behold and have a handshake with him. This was at the recent Argungu Fishing and Cultural Festival in Kebbi State which the President had gone to declare open. The international tourism event had been kept in the cooler for about eleven years due to security considerations. As the President was conducted round the arena for inspection, especially to have a…

NEMA: Understanding The Samaritan In Maihaja

By David Onmeje “We instinctively tend to limit for whom we exert ourselves. We do it for people like us, and for people whom we like. Jesus will have none of that. By depicting a Samaritan helping a Jew, Jesus could not have found a more forceful way to say that anyone at all in need – regardless of race, politics, class, and religion – is your neighbour. Not everyone is your brother or sister in faith, but everyone is your neighbour, and you must love your neighbour.” -Timothy Keller…

Why I will be a patriot, not a terrorist! Rendition of a poem!

By Best Agbese The COAS, Lt. Gen. TY Buratai is a bundle of talents. A famed soldier, he is also a consummate and prolific poet.

He identifies actions or concealed inactions of seeming onlookers which bear trademarks of terrorism. In the opening stanza, the…
