Pius Adesanmi: The Sun Sets At Noon!

I was contemplating on what to write this week when the news of the crash of an Ethiopian Airline flight popped in. As is usual with such tragic news, shock was the immediate reaction as such breaking news come with very sketchy details. Such news are scary developments that often remind of man’s helplessness with […]

Obasanjo’s Sorrowful Nunc Dimittis

Obasanjo’s Sorrowful Nunc Dimittis

Olusegun Obasanjo, the swash-buckling former president is sad; so sad that he cannot put a finger on how best to manage his elephantine emotions.

Bukola Saraki’s Fading Political Stars

For the heavily-stained Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the fading lights of his charmed political life seems to have come on and this is no laughing matter for the rambunctious politician whose bullish political stock has been helped by wiles and crooked means such that he and his supporters believe he has been given an impregnable status especially in his native Kwara State.

Of Atiku Abubakar’s Huge Moral Burden And The Coming Election

Since he emerged from a heavily monetized PDP primary election, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar had been trying to fend off a noxious image of a super corrupt and shady politician that symbolizes Nigeria’s rotten past. His emergence itself was a huge rebuke to PDP’s recent mien as a repentant group that is truly sorry for its sordid past, for which it recently offered a tenuous apology, which most Nigerians saw as insincere and opportunistic.

Direct Primaries Will Strengthen Nigeria’s Democracy

One of the most profound decisions the Adams Oshiomhole-leadership of the All Progressives Congress is bringing to party politics is the adoption of direct primary as a means of selecting candidates that will fly the party’s flag in all elective positions. The decision is as revolutionary as it is well timed. It stands to improve the stock of the APC in the coming 2019 election as well as other elections in the coming epoch.

Unnecessary Glut Of Parties In Nigeria’s Electoral System

Unnecessary Glut Of Parties In Nigeria’s Electoral System

Recently, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) registered a fresh batch of political parties. If the number of parties we have in Nigeria at present is not up to a hundred, it is fast inching to that number.
