Oni was, also, a former governor of the state. The sad state of the party in the…

Emir Sanusi: Time To Go

Comfort Obi

By Comfort Obi Being not from the Northern part of Nigeria, I don’t know what the law says on the abdication of Emirs. Can an Emir, on his own abdicate? I know they can be deposed, and forced into exile. A couple of them had suffered that fate. The most prominent: Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki, father of the  detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.  He was deposed during the regime of late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, and sent to Kaduna on exile   He died in there. Ironically, the grandfather …

Nasir El-Rufai

Nasir El-Rufai’s name remains an anathema; it sends jitters to their spines as his destructive tendency, callously demonstrated during his implementation of the Abuja master plan, as FCT minister, remains a major scar on his victims. To the non-Muslim communities across the nation, particularly the Christian group, and to the defenseless indigenous people of Southern Kaduna, “El-Rufai is a religious bigot, a terror in the day, ethnic extremist at night and bloody chief executive of all…

The Tragedy of The Nigerian Woman

Comfort Obi

By Comfort Obi You will, please, excuse me if the title above does no justice to the subject matter here.  Getting a title was difficult for me. And that is because I am, at once, overwhelmed and dumbfounded by the subject. I am not addicted to the social media, which explains why one is not likely to find me on most platforms. In my house, they call me old school. And my standard, if weak, response is: How did we survive before this “mad” era? Being old school can be comfortable…

Re: Nwodo, An enemy of Ndigbo?

By Gwiyi Solomon Indeed, Ndigbo have no regards and respect for constituted authorities in their own lands. Probably, our long aged practice of liberalism and freedom, in terms of choice of where to pay loyalty, liberty of expression and flexibility in association is heavily taking a toll on the supposed oneness and adulation to the regional powers, Nigeria is known with. Without equivocation, no tribe in Nigeria will decimate its own regional power in the manner an Igbo would do. I can recall the threats by a monarch in Lagos,…
