  • The Blame Game as a Route to the Destination of Uncreativity
    by Dr Abubakar Alkali
    May 02 2017

    It was the young Ghanaian writer Israelmore Ayivor who wrote ‘You may regret for messing up on few occasions, but you need to appreciate the fact that blames don’t clean the mess, they only smear the blame on your face. NigerianNews Special

  • Matthew Kukah’s Christian Values and
    Misplaced Priorities

    by Frisky Larr
    April 25, 2017

    When I wrote the book “Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment”, in which I examined Black Africa’s plight in its self-imposed religious trap, I stopped short of crossing several thresholds. Contrary to speculations advanced by people who read articles, reviews and intros about this work, the content did not concern itself with the existence or otherwise of any supreme deity. I did not concern myself with the relevance or otherwise of atheism. Indeed, on the contrary, I highlighted the importance of religion in society as the recognized custodian of moral and ethical values. NigerianNews Special

  • Buhari’s Civilian Presidency: Was it a Serious Misunderstanding?
    by Frisky Larr
    April 18, 2017
    In biblical English, the expression “How art the mighty fallen” means nothing more than “How have the mighty fallen!” This thought occurs to me when I think of Muhammadu Buhari as a civilian President of a country of Nigeria’s caliber. Since his inception as President in 2015, a lot has happened in his presidency that ranges from the fascinating through the bewildering down to the demoralizing. He has thrilled his admirers on occasions with decisive and targeted actions. He has also given them cause to scratch their heads sore in search of answers to pressing questions. More devastating though is that he has given many of his supporters, genuine reasons to jump ship and disavow the day they swore allegiance to him. NigerianNews Special

    April 20 2017

    In the run up to the 2019 elections and beyond, one criteria that should define the search for a holistic solution to the socio economic challenges facing our country is the zeal to confront these challenges. The indefatigable zeal and commitment to confront these challenges is sine qua non to fixing them. For genuine change to be entrenched in the polity, there has to be the commitment to honestly confront these challenges. The leaders we need now, in 2019 and beyond are those who are ready to accept responsibility and face the challenges head on. Not those who will duck away when called to duty. We need leaders who will serve the interest of the majority NOT dealers who will serve only themselves and their minority cartel.  NigerianNews Special


  • Buhari’s Leadership Disappointment and Confused Nigerians!
    by Frisky Larr
    March 27, 2017

    Who doesn’t remember the dirty tricks in the presidential elections of 2015? A medical report was released, ostensibly engineered by the incumbent President of the time, from the Teaching Hospital of a reputable Nigerian university. The content was explosive and a potential game-changer. It purportedly revealed the negative medical record of the then opposition candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. A long-standing impact of advancing prostate cancer was poised to take a toll on his fitness for the office he aspired to hold, so the report claimed. Remember the misstep at a rally stage and the hyped reports of a slump on the campaign trail?  NigerianNews Special


  • Judging The Judges
    by Atsar Terver
    October 12 2016

    There is a hurricane blowing across the nation, it is blowing hot with blazes of hunger and pain, glares of uncertainty, casting a hazy cloud on the horizon, eliciting sighs of despair among the people and a cacophony of discordant tunes from the leadership. Things are falling apart and the center cannot hold (W. B. Yeats). The country has been officially declared to be in a recession. For the Nigerian in the street, ‘recession’ is just, like the Finance Minister said, a word; an essentially meaningless word, because they don’t understand it. That is the job of professional economists and financial analysts. For them, what they know is that ‘things are hard’ and ‘there is no money’ NigerianNews Special

  • Consolidating the Gains of the Fight against Corruption in Nigeria: The Need to Ban Convicted Looters from Holding Public Office for Life.
    by Abubakar Alkali Sokoto
    October 09 2016

    The ongoing anti-corruption fight of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has recorded huge success in laying a solid foundation aimed at stamping out corruption from our country. It is fair to state that for a very long time in the history of our country, corruption has been the norm rather than the exception and eaten deep into all strata of the Nigerian system. However, President Buhari has been able to make corruption the exception rather than the norm.  NigerianNews Guest

  • Close the Nigerian Senate and Cut down the Size of House of Representatives by 75% to Rescue Nigeria out of Economic Recession
    by Abubakar Alkali Sokoto
    September 29 2016
    When Senegal closed down its senate in September 2012 to raise cash to help victims affected by flood disaster, many people raised their hands and commended President Macky Sall’s government. The Senegalese senators fought vehemently to retain their seats but lost the votes at a joint sitting of the Senegalese parliament. The Senegalese government vowed to use the $15 million raised through the closure of the senate to not only offer emergency assistance to the affected residents but also to prevent further flood disasters. It was a landmark decision by the Senegalese government to close the senate and rescue their country from economic recession and turmoil.  NigerianNews Special

    The current downturn in the price of oil has led to an economic turmoil that has reverberated across the globe with negative consequences for the living conditions of the people. It is also noteworthy that the global economic downturn coupled with senseless attacks on oil infrastructure in the Niger Delta and decades of relentless corruption have conspired to bring Nigeria to recession.  NigerianNews Special

    September 12, 2016
    Over 20 years ago, a distant cousin graduated from university with a degree in English Language. The unemployment situation in the country then was not as bad as it has degenerated today, but it was still difficult to secure a job. My uncle, his father, had suggested that he travel to Makurdi to meet with the then Deputy Governor under the then military administration who was also a relation, to help the young graduate secure a job with the state civil service.

  • When Citizens 'Can't' Exercise Their Powers
    Amir Abdulazeez
    August 09 2016

    Over the last eight months, Nigerians have been very angry with the National Assembly. Although, the discontent of Nigerians with their national lawmakers over the past 16 years has become habitual and almost permanent, several events in the 8th National Assembly have accelerated this discontent. From Bukola Saraki’s refusal to resign over corruption allegations to the purchase of cars for lawmakers at ‘inflated’ prices down to the inability of both chambers to make their budget details clearly open and lately, to the on-going budget padding controversy; Nigerians have never probably being angrier with their representatives in the legislative arm than they are now. Add all of these to the social media bill controversy, the lawmakers’ quest to give their leaders life pension and immunity and Abdulmumini Jibrin’s latest cameo; then you can say, the sore relationship between Nigerians and their federal lawmakers have reached a point of no return NigerianNews Guest

  • It is time for a moratorium on this National Assembly
    by Anthony A. Kila
    June 23, 2016
    In a sane society, there is a level below which no individual or group should be allowed to sink into, hence we have rules for incapacitation and practices of charity and isolation for those who show trends that can hurt our humanity and indeed our sociality. Mercy is what is reserved for the weak and ill ones amongst us; castigation is what we save for our errant ones. When the offender is powerful due to status or capacity then the answer must include rebellion.

  • This PDP should Perish or Reform

    June 07, 2016
    Once upon a time, there was a land wherein it was common practice for everyone to be happily affected by, and even actively participate in any kind of religious festival or event around them. It did not really matter whether it was a Christian, Muslim or Egungun festival, everyone in the various communities enjoyed the events and they all rejoiced with their associates, colleagues, neighbors or family members who were part of that creed even though they were not. The only difference between say a Christian and a Muslim on Christmas day was who paid bill because everybody celebrated and those that belonged to the celebrated faith hosted or sent refreshments to those that did not NigerianNews Special

  • Between ‘True Federalism’ and ‘True Leadership’
    Amir Abdulazeez
    June 07 2016

    Three things are apparently no longer in doubt as far as the Nigerian project is concerned. One, as much as 75% or more of the 36 oil-money dependent states, cannot independently sustain themselves economically to a significant level, now and perhaps forever. Two, Nigerians may never be able to sincerely and patriotically shelve their ethnic, religious, political and selfish differences to pursue collective national prosperity. With the more divisive orientation we are giving to the upcoming generation of Nigerians, we can even be certain about this. Three, leadership failure has done so much damage to Nigeria and her citizens that no one can precisely predict how long it will take for citizens’ hope, trust and confidence on leadership at ‘all’ levels to be fully restored.   NigerianNews Guest

  • This PDP should Perish or Reform
    by Anthony A. Kila
    May 25, 2016
    There is no other way to put it; the PDP as it appears today is not useful to Nigeria and to students of politics anywhere in the world. As a party, it is confused; as a movement, it seems soulless and with no principles or vision, as a group it appears shapeless and with no structure or ethos. Even its brightest and most articulate minds appear not to want to associate with the party. The best of the party have developed the habit of speaking as individuals or even like mere passers-by rather than as members or leaders of a party that was in power till just about a year ago.

  • Bukola Saraki: Aristocratically-spoilt Child trying hard to dare Buhari!
    by Frisky Larr
    April 27, 2016
    “Serves Buhari right” one may be tempted to say and many are saying it loudly too, albeit for different reasons. One of such reasons appealed to me to a limited extent and it reflects the inherent culture of contradictions in ordinary Nigerians. In a brief trip through memory lane, I recall the verbal missiles of hate that flew the ways of former President Olusegun Obasanjo during the second half of his presidency. I recall how much of an object of hate he was in a very large section of the intellectual community, with some persisting till the very moment.  NigerianNews Special

  • Buhari should say something about CBN Recruitment Scandal

The sore in question is the recent murky recruitment exercise carried out by the Central Bank of Nigeria in which children and close relatives of public office holders and politicians were secretly recruited into sensitive and highly lucrative jobs

  • The Way Out of The Chibok Girls Debacle

    April 27 2016
    The ‘proof of life’ video released by Boko haram on 14th April 2016 showing 15 of the 276 schoolgirls abducted by Boko haram from Government secondary school Chibok in Borno state North East Nigeria has yet again reinvigorated hopes of a safe return home of the girls. Boko haram apparently released the video as a bargaining chip for a possible prisoner swap which they have consistently maintained as their key condition for the release of the girls. The release of the video coincided with the second anniversary of the abduction and also the capture of the Boko haram second in command, Usman Mohammed a.k.a Khaled Al Barnawi by the Nigerian security forces.  NigerianNews Guest Column

    by Abubakar Alkali Sokoto
    The Nigerian senate is at it again when the news went round that the upper legislative chamber is hell bent on spending  about N4.7 Billion in buying 109 exotic and posh cars to be used presumably for ‘oversight functions’. The House of Representatives seem to have followed suit by also announcing that the lower legislative chamber is spending N4.2 Billion in buying 360 exotic cars also for the purpose of thesocalled ‘oversight’ functions. Put together, the total amount of tax payers’ cash to be spent on to buy 460 exotic cars for our senators and representatives will be over N10 Billion.  NigerianNews Guest Column

  • Of Pharisees and Cardinals in the Buhari Equation!
    by Frisky Larr
    To the objective mind, the Christian religion in Nigeria today seems to embody a story that is yet to be told to a generation that is struggling to identify the goals, functions and aspirations of this religion. In a corporate society like Nigeria’s that has been smashed and battered to its barest fabrics, this is a daunting task. When I set out to write the book “Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment”, I was determined not to give the Christian religion any semblance of wholesale condemnation in the face of the socially and politically useful moral values that the religion incorporates to the benefit of any society that cares.  NigerianNews Special

  • Reflections On The New Year 2016: Find The Light and Your Steps Will be Steady Towards An Assured Future.
    Every New Year people reflect on what the New Year portends.  The future has always been a mystery that human beings have expended a lot of energy, resources trying to figure it out.  Some read the stars; some read tea leaves, other consult astrologers, spiritualists and have penetrated the veil between the real, material world and the spiritual or the unseen world, where the future, the present and the past all blend into an endless flow.  If there is any resolution to be made this year, my recommendation is don’t take predictions too seriously, don’t let your life be governed by predictions. If predictions come true, you have fallen into a self-fulfilling prophesy, and you cannot prove otherwise. Of course there are some with a keen foresight and wisdom, who can look at the current trajectory of a person and make predictions.  Those predictions however, need not be treated as inevitable, but as advice whether to keep the current course or change directions. NigerianNews Editorial

  • Is Muhammadu Buhari Playing by the Rules?
    by Frisky Larr
    Is anyone surprised today that the political soup of Nigeria is literally boiling over the spaces of the mighty cauldron? The foamy substance of the toxic brew is powered by the intensity of the fire beneath the cauldron. And the heat is not abating! Since Muhammadu Buhari took the reins of power as President of Africa’s most populous country, opposition has gathered momentum with the slow pace of the soup in the cauldron taking time to build its steam and blow the foam beyond the edges. No one took the opposition seriously for one single moment because logical reasoning is not the foundation on which they build their vindictive assault. They act like preachers of hate. They act like preachers of death. Yet, they sound an appeal to righteousness and often seem to make the real righteous ones look dumb and daft.  NigerianNews Special

    There is the history of the Jews on their way to the Promised Land, which they were told  was flowing with Milk and Honey.

If the conference decides that THE National assembly should cease to exist, we cannot expect faithful execution from The National Assembly.

We at THE NNews believe THE persons of Okuroumu and Nwabuaze will not allow themselves to be used for Jonathan's ELECTORAL purpose. We only hope between Lai Mohammed and Tinubu that APC would not be destroyed in THE South West before it has chances of deep root. We can put this Tinubu assertion in THE same blunder category Lai Mohammed committed when Jonathan declared STATE of Emergency in those STATEs in THE North East. THERE are ways not to oppose for opposing sake. We just have to hope that personal ambition is also not driving Tinubu's comment and we sincerely wish THE Asiwaju well hoping he does not dash THE hopes and ambitions of those who believe in (S)National Conference NNews

Since our subject will be governance and society, however, our standard for evaluation will also be governance and society. In every society, governance is always about the people.

    November 02 2015
    The ministerial screening exercise conducted by the 8th senate has been adjudged to be a success at least to the extent that all the ministerial nominees passed the test and were confirmed. Albeit, very few people expected otherwise for obvious reasons. Apart from the fact that section 147 (2) of the 1999 constitution has been satisfied, there are quite a few lessons to take home from the exercise. The constitution was also clear in section 147 (3) that the President shall appoint at least one minister from each state. A glaring constitutional lacuna appears apparent in that the constitution was not explicit on the grassroots attachment and connection of the ministerial nominees to their states and constituencies.  NigerianNews Guest Column

    it is now Time for us to ask Nigerian Governors on why they do not want their deputies to succeed them. alternatively, we may ask the DEPUTY Governors as to what are their sins which are so dreadful that their bosses wouldn't want them to succeed them. A DEPUTY Governor should naturally be the person with the best chance to succeed an outgoing Governor, going by the fact that he is constitutionally mandated to take over from him in the event of any unforeseen circumstance like death, impeachment or incapacitation.  Furthermore, a DEPUTY is seen as the closest working ally of his principal and probably that's why the constitution gave an exclusive right to the Governor to determine his running mate.

For many discerning minds, the greatest threat to Nigeria's democratic culture and obstacle to a rapid socio-economic development is not the actions or inactions of the party in power. Poor opposition Tradition is. NigerianNews Guest Column

    ast week, Kano STATE Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso said President Goodluck Jonathan appears to be more of the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) than of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, because of the promotional Television jingles that according to him wrongly compare THE President with oTHEr successful world leaders.

    POLITICAL opposition is to democracy what spice is to stew. Unfortunately, most Nigerian opposition leaders mistake hate for opposition politics. this is responsible for the deplorable opposition culture in THE country. it means that POLITICAL opposition has been able to contribute maximally to the growth of Nigerian democracy.

    I have since heard many a youth lament about how our grandfathers continue to ruin the country in the name of ruling it, about how the rulers of yesteryears are yet the leaders of tomorrow, about how these grandfathers themselves were youths when they set out but now detest our youth and our entitlement, about how the affairs of the youth are left for our gramps (and grannies) to ru(i)n.

  • THE Quality of a Good Politician in a Democratic Society
    by Adewale T. Akande
    April, 29 2014
    My little Oxford dictionary defines politician as '"person engaged or interested in politics" and politics as '"science and arT of government; POLITICAL affairs or life or principles etc." Politics consists of '"social relations involving authority and power". A politician is defined as one who is actively involved in politics or one who holds or seeks a POLITICAL office. A politician is an individual who is involved in influencing public policy and decision making in government. Politicians play a central role in our lives.  NigerianNews Guest Column

    th September, 2015 President Muhammadu Buhari went ahead to list and submit the name of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi along with those of 20 other great Nigerians as ministerial nominees to the Senate for confirmation.  NigerianNews Guest Column
