  • Reflections On The New Year 2016: Find The Light and Your Steps Will be Steady Towards An Assured Future.
    January 01, 2016
    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

    • Nigeria in 2015: Is There A Way Out of The Wilderness?
      January 01, 2015
      There is the history of the Jews on their way to the Promised Land, which they were told  was flowing with Milk and Honey. The generation that left Egypt was caught up in the wilderness and never made it to the Promised Land. Why? They cannot claim that they had bad leadership, in fact they has a good, inspired leader in Moses, a courageous leader, who faced down Pharaoh the ruler of the greatest  Empire the world has ever known.  Moses their leader was chosen by God Himself but the people decided to go their own  way. Moses could not have been accused of bad leadership, of corruption or favoritism.  In fact when he faced accusations, God Himself vindicated him.  Recently our former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo agreed with Pastor Adeboye, the Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God that Nigerian  needs God intervention The remaining content of his remarks were not reported.  NigerianNews Editorial

  • S'EAST AND ITS ONE ADDITIONAL PYRRHIC STATE VICTORY
    April 25, 2014
    'AGITATION by the people of the South-East for creation of an additional state in the area to put them at par with other zones of the federation received huge support  when, Thursday, the demand received the unanimous backing from members of the National Conference Committee on Political Reforms and Forms of Government' so says the header glee by the Guardian! It is the NigerianNews opinion on this seeming show of magnanimity that the committee actually missed the point and in fact it actually compounded the problem! If the Zone is the federating unit, a case that this Confab should actually discuss thoroughly, S'East is in fact owed 2 States, while S'West, S'South, N'Central and the N'East are owed one additional State each to keep up or be at par with the N'West, a member of the Zonal federating unit!

  • THE HOUSE LUGARD BUILT, NIGERIA, MAKES IT TO 2014 BY THE WILL OF GOD, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    January 01, 2014
    We wish all our Nigerian compatriots a Happy 2014! Many ups and downs will straddle our beloved Nigeria this New Year more than it was in 2013. We need to renegotiate the basis for our coexistence through the National Conference in 2014 if we must prove those who think Nigeria will collapse in 2015 wrong. We again must not continue to put our problems under the rug in order to appease the sacred cow in our midst, if this Federal Republic must endure. NigerianNews Editorial

  • NATIONAL CONFERENCE AND THE ABSENCE OF APC GOVERNORS IN AKURE
    October 21, 2013
    We all share Fmr. Gov. Bola Ahmed Tinubu's scepticism, but a lot of us are students of history! So, for us, the best place to express this scepticism is at the Conference of unique ethnic nationalities. As students of history, in 1964, UPGA decided to boycott the federal election. The boycott was almost total in the East, UPGA boycotted the election in the West, but the Akintola's NNDP, an alliance in NNA went to the poll. NigerianNews Editorial

  • Dialogue with Boko Haram? Not So Fast!
    January 31, 2013
    Why are these spurious demands for dialogue being made now by people who should know better? The Boko Haram is being routed from their covert base in Mali, their world is on the verge of collapse. What is it to dialogue at this point? That Boko Haram's atrocities never happened? That those people cowardly murdered are not worthwhile member of their communities? That the president should negotiate with them to become a Muslim? NigerianNews Editorial

  • From The University of Lagos to Moshood Abiola University: An Unforced Error by an error-prone President!
    May 30, 2012
    The changing of the University of Lagos name to Moshood Abiola University seems to us an unforced error by a President who is willing to use all means to secure a second term, and he thinks the way to securing it is through the people of the South West! It seems to us that this president has no clue about the psyche of an average South Westerner, and we predict this latest act is also the reason why we think he has destroyed his chance for a second term in this zone.

  • Fuel Subsidy: In the defense of the 'real suffering masses'
    December 21, 2011
    We are premising this article on our believe that all parties to this subsidy debate are patriotic, and all mean well for the country. The president has never been known to fib to us before, and the people who want subsidy to stay approximate the name of the suffering masses to pursue their claim to the impending post subsidy removal doom. Our recommendations under this condition is, if the president is too timid to take a bold step like Prime Minister David Cameron did in the UK when he took over, he should work on how this subsidy works for all real suffering masses. This should be the fair solution after the NLC and the TUC have won their battle:: NigerianNews Editorial

  • Farewell the 3rd National Assembly (2007-2011) and enter the 4th National Assembly (2011-2015)
    April 02, 2011
    The National Assembly has a life span of four years, therefore the first National Assembly started its life in 1999, and ended its span of life in 2003, and a new one started in May 29, of 2003. At this time, May 29 was christened  'democracy day' Henceforth, a new National Assembly with a new set of legislative and Presidential players will take a new oath of office every May 29, of a New National Assembly year. Therefore, a journey to a new and 4th National Assembly begins today, April 2nd, 2011! NigerianNews Editorial

  • Abati, AU, The West and the End game
    March 29, 2011
    Mr. Abati, sure you know about the Western ringer when they want a solution passed at the UN. That you are told that action will be limited to No-Fly zone and you voted for it, does not mean you cannot complain later when you think the understanding of what you voted for has changed. The Arab league was the first to feel deceived and was later 'muzzled' to go along. NigerianNews Editorial | Related Issue

    September 20, 2007
    While the theatre of the absurd has begun to witness a resurgence in the newly inaugurated presidency of Musa Yar'Adua, it is amazing that the prominent actors are those who secretly sought the head of this president while he was still the PDP presidential candidate. That was then. This is now. And the self-promoters, the uncouth and the moles planted by the crooked have surreptitiously and stealthily taken over! NigerianNews Editorial

    June 25, 2007
    If we understand Chief Gani Fawehinmi and his thoughts on Peter Obi's Supreme Court judgment correctly, it can be said the Chief was only worried about jurisdiction and its attendant consequential remedy stemming from this judgment. We were rooting for Gov. Peter Obi here at the NigerianNews at the beginning, middle and the end of this saga, but as patriots, NigerianNews was also worried about the remedy for this serious injustice against an innocent man.

  • The Terms of the Nigerian Political Offices are scalar and not vector quantities!
    June 15, 2007
    The Supreme Court by granting Governor Obi of Anambra an extension is expressly stating that the terms of the Nigerian political offices cannot be considered a vector quantity as the value of the office longevity can only be characterized in a scalar term. For those who may want to know, all vector or tensor quantities will retain their values in any assigned frame of reference (either in a covariant or contravariant tensoral transformation). A tensor or vector quantity must have magnitude and direction, because of this, if for example the position of a governor is given a vectoral value of four years, this value will remain same if evaluated in an interstellar space. Of course, like velocity, a vector may be considered not to be an objective vector. NigerianNews Editorial

  • May the unbiazed judge interpret 142(1) and 146(3)(c) of the 1999 constitution?
    December 24, 2006
    A VP is a product of party selection in a convention where the presidential candidate is ELECTED and not SELECTED. In other words, Yar'Adua and Buhari were ELECTED recently by their various party conventions, and then Yar'Adua SELECTED Goodluck Jonathan, while Buhari SELECTED Ume Ezeoke. Is this a paradox?

  • Where is the Emergency?
    October 25, 2006
    The toothless bulldog, otherwise known as the National Assembly or the impeachable offence enumerator, now has an opportunity to face the job of the nation with malice to No one! When the State of Emergency in Ekiti comes for debate tomorrow, the question to ask the sender is; where is this emergency? Does an elected democrat sack another elected democrat unless on a serious ground? We are afraid our brothers and sisters in the National Assembly will either pass the bucks at the end of this important debate by assigning the blame on someone else or just consign the Ekiti anomaly as one of those impeachable offences which at the last count would be numbered 129 ( or is it 130?)

    From what we know of Atiku, some swear by God that he is a nice man, and we agree. However, this is not about a nice versus bad man but about the stability of our institution and country. A good Vice President makes the job of his boss easier by constant sNNDPort of the policy for which they have been elected. When sNNDPort becomes impossible, and in the interest of the nation, a "nice" Vice President resigns, freeing himself from the "immorality" of his boss. This "nice" Vice President has not done that.
