“When a leader encourages the culture of impunity, the society is lost and it makes the work harder for the rest of us” (Wole Soyinka).
It is very unfortunate what we are witnessing today as a nation under the APC led government. This government is no more interested in the plights of over a 200million Nigerians many of whom voted it into power. it has resulted to impunity which is now a new craziness under the APC led government of Nigeria.

The quote above caught my attention, while I reflected on the
presidency of Donald Trump whose rise to power came to a tragic/controversial end after four years, thereby setting a tragic unprecedented history that might take generations to break, if at all.
I am not used to writing on western politics, and governance,
this is because it appears everything I do or say is Nigeria in particular and
Africa in general. More so, as the biblical saying goes, “Only Continue reading “DONALD TRUMP: A TRAGIC HERO?”

Not many remember what happened in Riyom, Plateau state many years ago. In case you’re among the many who didn’t, this story of mine will refresh your memory.
I met my wife, Rhoda in the UK. She was on a state government scholarship and she emerged as one of the best graduating students in her institution. I was thrilled when on our first date I found that she was a Nigerian from Plateau State. She was from Continue reading “THE ATTACK IN RIYOM by Japheth Prosper”
HOW HISTORY REPEATS IN ITSELF THE AFTERMATH OF ENDSARS PROTESTS
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable”(John F. Kennedy).
For the first time in my life, I have come to accept without doubt that power lies in the hands of the masses. And that was evident in the recent ugly events in Nigeria, following the youths #ENDSARS peaceful protests, and its aftermath.
According to a popular African saying, “A man who does not know where the rain began to beat him cannot say where he dried his body.” Unarguably, in the words of the renowned African writer, Chinua Achebe, “the rain that beat us as Africans began over four hundred years ago, from the ‘discovery’ of Africa by Europe, through the transatlantic slave trade, to the Berlin Conference of 1885…”(THERE WAS A COUNTRY).
If I were 18 at the time, I doubt if I would have voted for Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, aka MKO, considering that MKO as I later discovered in my historical research, was a man who appeared too ambitious.
From what I previously read about him, I did not know him to be over-ambitious until the heated debate I had with Cornelius Erohubie in 2019, when President Muhamadu Buhari honored MKO with a posthumous president and declared June 12th henceforth as Democracy Day in Nigeria.
Atiku and Buhari and The Space In The Middle: In the hearts of every young man and woman reading this, who mean well for our country; in the hearts of men and women devoid of sentiments: tribes, religion and selfish gains — We not only have a clear idea of the Nigeria of our dream, but more importantly the leaders that will make that dream a reality.
We know in all sincerity that Buhari does not only represent the impossibility of that dream coming to pass but the possibility that with him we may not even be alive in the first place to even dream. He is like the thief at the left hand. To some, he is not just the thief, he is the “Bad” thief.
A Brief Background of Hausa Christians in Nigeria Hausa is a tribe and not a religion. Hausa people are predominantly found in the Northern part of Nigeria and other parts of African countries like Niger, Benin, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Chad, Ghana, Sudan, Togo, Gabon, Algeria, Congo, and Burkina Faso. But originally, the Hausa people are from Nigeria.
When politics stumble, the country pays. The current climate in Nigeria has given rise to three categories of people: The alarmists, the psuedo-intellectuals, and the pseudo- revolutionaries.
The alarmists are quick to smell conspiracy theory in nearly every narrative. The dots of their information may not necessarily connect but they circulate them to induce fear. Throughout history, good students of history know that innocent lives had always been the victims of the activities of the alarmists. Continue reading “BEFORE THE BLOOD FLOWS! by Isaac Shemang”
