That coup alert

That coup alert

With Uche Nnadozie It is not as if I am one of those who think that the worst democratic government is better than the most benevolent military dictatorship; however, seeing what the military has done to our country while they held sway, it must be a thoroughly frustrated politician that will hold meetings for a […]

30 private jets or N30bn?

30 private jets or N30bn?

With Uche Nnadozie It was the turn of the Babangidas last week. The retired General gave out his 31-year old last child to her businessman- husband, Auwal Abdullahi. Never, mind if she turned out to be the third wife. Even his father General Ibrahim Babandiga was married to just one wife. And Halima’s mother (now […]

Buhari’s myth is far gone

Buhari’s myth is far gone

By Uche Nnadozie Each time I grumble about President Muhammad Buhari’s seeming negative vibe, it is with such a pain in the heart. I never for once contemplated the kind of things I see today. Surely, no man is perfect or infallible, but there is a bottom too deep that some humans are not expected […]

He blames everyone but himself

He blames everyone but himself

By Uche Nnadozie That has been typical of former President Goodluck Jonathan. Every time he is confronted by his actions, he evades and tries to call in others as doers of evil or conspirators against him. He is the only lucky guy alive. So why should such individual suddenly take responsibility. His rise in politics […]

The orphaned billions of Ikoyi

The orphaned billions of Ikoyi

With Uche Nnadozie Like most things in Nigeria, comedy will somehow be added to them. Even where matters are supposed to be straight forward, folks still find a way to mess it up in more ways than one. It must find a way to be dramatic in the least, often times it ends up becoming […]

A health sector in coma

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. Unfortunately for us, a large chunk of what make up the human development index, HDI has to do with good health. The wellness of the people of a nation tells the story […]

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. Surely, the Senate reserves the right to confirm or otherwise reject any nominee by the president. However, such rejection must be followed up with the reasons for turning down the nominee. […]

The snoring president

The snoring president

BY UCHE NNADOZIE Since the last time I discussed why the president must embark on visitations to parts of the country, nothing has been done to that effect. From presidential communication, we now know that President Muhammadu Buhari was sick at some point. But he has not always been sick and as such has had […]
