You don’t need to be a legislative member or even a governor to serve your people: A message to Taraba youths

Today, my thought, hoped it’s not skewed, is about my brothers, the youths of Taraba state. From time immemorial, everyone knows the future of every society rests on the shoulders of its youths. This is true in Taraba state. But, I don’t see a secured future with almost every young person aiming at one target … Continue reading You don’t need to be a legislative member or even a governor to serve your people: A message to Taraba youths

Jalingo chairmanship election: A choice between confidence and hope

Often, people face choices in life, especially good ones, that pose challenges to their conscience. I don’t know what most people of Jalingo local government think about this Saturday’s chairmanship election between Abdul Nasir Bobboji and A. A. Liman. It appears to be a challenging one that perhaps many, as of now, have not yet … Continue reading Jalingo chairmanship election: A choice between confidence and hope

We need confidence in our governance to succeed collectively

With all these discoveries and recoveries of looted billions of dollars (cash in apartments) from government officials who were trusted with the nation’s revenue sources, you still doubt why Nigeria is on its knees? We’ve never seen this before, not as far as I know. We had seen such amount of money taken to chambers’ floor … Continue reading We need confidence in our governance to succeed collectively

Labour strike and the reality of deregulation in Nigeria

I don’t think tomorrow’s speculated industrial action organised by Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is a good development for Nigeria. It’s undisputed, the economy is biting hard, and the recent removal of oil subsidy would make it even harder. But, a standoff against a decision that, given the current effect of global economic meltdown, appears almost … Continue reading Labour strike and the reality of deregulation in Nigeria

No justification for the Zaria killing of Shiite members

No right-thinking mind can justify the carnage that happened in Zaria, Nigeria last weekend. The action of barricading the road for the Chief of Army Staff’s motorcade was totally wrong, be it by the Shiite members or any group that would dare the authority of the Nigerian Army, but the overzealous response of the army … Continue reading No justification for the Zaria killing of Shiite members

Is governor Darius ready for the job?

Tarabans, help me out if I missed anything out there. Beside appointments that were deeply characterised by exclusion controversy, I’m truly yet to know where our journey, as a people that urgently need reparation, has begun or where we’re heading to since the commencement of this dispensation. Governments around the country celebrated and won trophies … Continue reading Is governor Darius ready for the job?

You never will be at peace when your neighbor is at war

It looks so disturbing what’s happening in the Mediterranean Sea, at the Hungarian train stations or at the Slovakian borders. Unfortunately, the reality is, these humanitarian crises did not start at any of these unfortunate scenes and so would not end there without long-lasting adverse effects across the world. When external forces vested interests that … Continue reading You never will be at peace when your neighbor is at war

On President Buhari’s new (dis) appointments

While, in my opinion, it’s still too early to attempt to gauge President Buhari’s performance, even so, it might not be wrong to pose a comment on his probable dispositions, especially the one that raised so far the loudest outcry across the nation’s media platforms. I’m particularly concerned to see sudden changes in the discourse … Continue reading On President Buhari’s new (dis) appointments
