IT WON’T FLY THIS TIME

IT WON’T FLY THIS TIME

Buharists are stunned. For the first time in a long time, they are being outshouted. They are looking for their zeal–for the shrillness of their conceit. But like a people about to be drowned, they are still desperatly clutching at straw. Keyamo kicked real hard on Channels. There is only one straw left: that Atiku is a looter. . It won’t fly this time. That tremendous fraud. Nigerians are bored to the bones by that…

I DON’T SHARE IN THIS

I DON’T SHARE IN THIS

The outcome of Osun has brought one thing — national pessimism. We’ve lost faith in our democracy. We’ve realised that it is a fraudulent charade. That it does not, in actuality, exist. . Those with whom I spoke about the election did not allow me to say Jack Robinson before screaming the utter worthlessness of the PVC. Buhari would win anyway. If one defeats him in a free and fair exercise, could one also outplay…

OF DRIBBLERS AND THE DRIBBLED

OF DRIBBLERS AND THE DRIBBLED

Election is again knocking around. In the past few weeks, we have borne witness to the most galling manifestation of abject want of principle from the masters who straddle our national destiny. They have shown in unpretentious ways that it is not about the country. Every man of them is dashing, with unprincipled desperation, to where his bread would be buttered. It is, after all, a game of interest. These politicians are not betraying this…

NOT TOO YOUNG TO LOOT

NOT TOO YOUNG TO LOOT

The Nigerian youth is not clamouring to be included in the scheme of things because he is dissatisfied with the state of affairs and earnestly desires to engender changes. That is not his motive. He is coming because he feels that it is time for a younger person to “eat the money “. He is coming to continue an old sin with modern sophistication. To develop rounder and more shinning pot belly as public patrimony…

A remarkable encounter with SARS.

A remarkable encounter with SARS.

I have decided to contribute to the piling outrage against SARS because of that ignoble spectacle displayed in Rivers State. A group of people with an incomprehensible motive had fanned out in solidarity with SARS. Well, this is Nigeria. And that makes it less astonishing and novel. It was in Nigeria that a man allowed himself to be filmed as he overtried his lungs in defending Fulani Cattlemen after they raided a community and left…

ATIKU. BUHARI. US. ”IT IS TIME TO THINK ABOUT 2019”

ATIKU. BUHARI. US. ”IT IS TIME TO THINK ABOUT 2019”

We went hysterical when Emmanuel Macron became the president of France at 39. We marveled at his victory as one of those miracles possible only in the country of the white man. The hysteria reached the highest point when Austria performed a more incredible miracle to elect the 31 years old Sebastian Kurz as her president. Enyinnaya Nnaemeka Nwosu is a young Nigerian. He is intelligent and accomplished. There is no known scandal hanging around…

Why always my face and never this cattleman?

Why always my face and never this cattleman?

There are people who can bring action against their faces and recover full damages. I am one of them. If I could nerve up to institute a court action against my face on defamation , I sure would recover. My face has been bearing false witness against me. It has been publishing and spreading the lie that I am a chain smoker. That was how I became a Jonah to the bus I boarded from…
