The present atmosphere we now find ourselves today seems to come down to the attitude of the people versus government. This is not something any citizen of Nigeria, or any country for that matter, wants to have occur. Government does have a place in more

In today's Nigerian (and most African) society with everything going, from politics to terrorism to religious and ethnic intolerance and corruption of epidemic proportions, it is very helpful if we as a people learn to start respecting other people's more

That Mr Atiku Abubakar resigned from the APC a few days ago certainly did not come as a surprise to me and many other Nigerians; it has always been a matter of when he will leave the APC and not if he will dump the APC. I suppose every Nigerian who more

In Mugabe’s case, as a friend from Kenya wrote to me, the Zimbabwean Defence Forces are merely exercising “soft power” – getting others to want the outcomes you want – and co-opting people rather than coercing them. This can be contrasted with “hard more

At a rudimentary level, leaders need power. They need the power to influence, to develop, and to enable and impact people, the society and the environment. These are fundamental to making things happen, and therefore to the ability to do the job of more

Akintokunbo A ADEJUMO

I have written many times on a singularity, or perhaps we should call it a genetic aberration or bane of development and progress in our dear country – it is the inability to find the Truth; nobody speaks the Truth; nobody wants to hear the Truth. more

But why do we need these extravagant ceremonies to get things, projects, official events, etc. started and done in Nigeria? Must all kinds of projects embarked upon by government and even the legislature's constituency projects, be accompanied by a more

The rampant and open buying and selling of votes by agents of the parties, with the main offenders being the PDP that currently controls the State and the APC that is in power at the federal level. more

As we ecstatically inch towards the finale of the greatest sports fiesta in the world, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics in Brazil, it is becoming increasingly apparent to many Nigerians, that this time, Nigeria is going to end up without a single more

Isn't it incredible that those destroying our nation are the same ones that lecture the poor masses to refrain from destabilizing the nation? They want the poor, common Nigerian that they have impoverished and debased to fight their war for them. more

To be honest with ourselves in this country, the NURTW can best be defined as a bunch of illiterate thugs, extortionists, murderers and highway robbers. I say this at the risk of their members in Ibadan attacking me. I wouldn’t put it past them, that more

The Greater London Authority elections – where Londoners will vote for a new Mayor of London and Members of the London Assembly – is on 5th May 2016. Yet, I, members of my family and many Londoners (including anybody who belongs to the British more

The principle of autonomy and/or self-determination is viewed as foundational in any true democracy. It is however worrying when democracy becomes a millstone around the neck of those who are supposed to benefit from it. Such has been the case in more

Akintokunbo A ADEJUMO

It is appalling to know that Nigerians are now polarised into two main caucuses, which is not even anywhere near political, but rather individualism, and most times, bordering on ethnic lines and religious affiliation more

In the aftermath of the March 2015 Elections, when ex-President Mr Jonathan conceded defeat to Mr Buhari, the immediate reaction of his supporters, both in his political party and outside, was to hail Mr Jonathan as an uncommon African hero, a man more

There are some views that you can fight corruption with corruption, but only as a means to an end. But it won't work long run. Other people will see the hypocrisy. A responsible and sincere government requires all citizens to be ethical and willing more

Champions for Nigeria (CFN) has been at the forefront of the campaign for the removal of this clause since 2008. We are sure that it will be a recordable achievement of the Confab if this becomes a reality in our current political climate. more
