Beyond the Rhetorics 6

“It’s the house rat that tells the bush rat to come inside, that there is enough food inside the house” ~ Benin proverb. I often watch with great astonishment, the energy and efforts put in place in deporting Edo youths from North Africa, Europe, and most recently Asian countries. I wonder if the whole of them in government seriously don’t understand the futility of their efforts, or they are aware but just playing politics with the situation. No matter how much we spend to bring back these young people to…

Beyond the Rhetorics 5

A wise man once said, “a good leader takes the people from where they are to where they ought to be”. When elected to represent the people, I will not sit back and watch the people lament over a problem. Rather, I will be the one championing the course in finding a lasting solution. In addition, I will not be the cause of any problem of my people. Like the current betrayal of trust by the incumbent, whereby he sits as the chairman on power in the house, and yet…

Buratai: A study in warfare

By David Onmeje The story of the Nigerian Army is such that invokes memories of exploits, especially in the Sub Saharan Africa. In times past, the Nigerian Army won countless laurels in its operations so much to the envy of other nations. At a point, the Nigerian Army was adjudged one of the best professional armies in the world. Nigerians were indeed proud of the Nigerian Army, and it became a thing of pride for one to be enlisted as either an officer or a soldier in the Nigerian Army.…

Charming Posture Of Nigerian Army Under Buratai By Nkechi Odoma 

A few Nigerians imputed extraneous meanings into what many perceived as the “combative” interface between the Nigerian Army and Daily Trust newspaper, a publications outfit based in Abuja. While many Nigerians were fast to take side with the Army without dissecting the issues due to its patriotism,  a few persons still  unjustifiably bandied all manner of derogative labels on the Nigerian Army. The Daily Trust edition of Sunday, January 6, 2019 published a story with the caption; “Military prepares massive operation to retake Baga, others.” The publication incurred the wrath…

Shettima’s Tears And Fear Mongering By Abel Audu 

At a time when an average Nigerian politician appears to have taken courses in film acting and stage performance, the tears shed by Borno state governor, Kashim Ibrahim Shettima when he led the state elders on a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, were suspect. Not even his bawling and cracking voice, when speaking with State House Correspondents, could convince one that he is not an alumni of sort with Ayodele Fayose the former theatrical governor of Ekiti State and the entertaining Dino Melaye, who recently suffered a fainting spell when…

Buratai’s Media-Friendly Disposition And The Need For Synergy By David Onmeje 

When I stumbled on the news report by Daily Trust Newspaper for Sunday 6th January 2018, I screamed to myself that this was too much information for public consumption. I could not come to terms as to why such sensitive items should be on display by a paper like Daily Trust, whose readership is domiciled in Northern Nigeria. To me, it was like an attempt to undermine the operations of the military in North East Nigeria because it revealed all the operational strategies of the military on combating the sudden…

NEMA’s Impactful Outing In the Northeast

By Abdulkareem Abdul- Samad The National Emergency Management Agency, (NEMA) is in the news again. This time around for the good of humanity. I am one of those that have long questioned the heavy presence of foreign non-governmental organization supposedly providing humanitarian services in North East Nigeria. I was of the opinion that Nigeria could indeed take care of its humanitarian needs with an agency like NEMA whose mission is to coordinate resources towards efficient and effective disaster prevention, preparedness, mitigation and response in Nigeria. Having stated the above, it…

Terrorism: Time for Introspection in the Media

By Philip Agbese Where terrorism and the war against it is concerned, the mainstream media in Nigeria are competing on at least four fronts. These contests, while they may be seen as typifying a robust media that is unencumbered by censorship, are growing to become a serious threat to the country. Media orgnizations are in a race among themselves to see who will dish out the goriest details, divulge the most military operational details, give the highest casualty figure, and of course be the first with the news – breaking…
