A health sector in coma

With Uche Nnadozie Since the second republic it has been tales of suffering and gnashing of teeth with regard to our health sector.

Electricity: We are in the dark

Electricity: We are in the dark

With Uche Nnadozie It is becoming apparent that Nigeria does not have what it takes to fix electricity. Some of us have been patient but evidently, this patience has ran its full course. If there is any singular thing that reveals the performance or lack thereof of our politicians and technocrats in recent memory, it […]

Buhari’s numb politics

Buhari’s numb politics

With Uche Nnadozie As political scientists opine, politics is the superstructure upon which every society is built. Prior to this time, people had always felt that economics was more important than politics. Facts around the modern state structure have proven the superiority of politics over every other concept in nation building. Thus, in the instance […]

The metaphor in Nsofor’s rejection

The metaphor in Nsofor’s rejection

By Uche Nnadozie The other day, the Senate of the Federal Republic refused to confirm a retired Appeal Court judge, Honourable Silvanus Justice Nsofor.

Speaking for the president

Speaking for the president

By Uche Nnadozie One of the most difficult jobs in the world is that of a spokesperson. Be it in public or private sector, the demands are the same. Going further, it doesn’t matter whether it is in a developing or developed economy. The job is tedious. I can imagine what Sean Spicer is passing […]

PDP needs a savior

PDP needs a savior

I had written off the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP just after it lost the general elections in 2015. It was not because of any known hatred, like I have always maintained, most of my friends and family members are members, surrogates or admirers of that party. However, the trouble with PDP is no family affair. […]
