EVERYONE, worldwide, is scared and helpless. An American comedian tweeted two weeks ago that “a lot of people are fleeing to (their) childhood mansions.” Christian kids and their parents are not talking about Easter – which is one week away. Conversations in Muslim circles are not about congregation prayers or Ramadan or Umrah or Hajj. […]

Abba Kyari and his COVID-19

PATIENTS are afraid of contracting the disease from doctors; doctors are afraid of getting infected by patients. It is a perfect medical standoff certain to breed a disaster. How does a country handle this? Yet, it is a war foretold but our cripple ignored the clear warnings. Coronavirus is not a homegrown disease. It was […]

I queried a friend who was in church on Sunday. What happened to all the lessons in social and physical distancing, events and congregate settings avoidance? A senior media person who knew the implications of mingling with crowds in a contagious pandemic, yet, he danced, threw his body left, right and centre and shared handshakes […]

The morning copy of the May 19, 1903 edition of the West Gippsland Gazette gave a gripping account of how the then flourishing city of Kano fell to the British. It is a Reuters’ eyewitness account of the February 3 war of the strong over the weak. At the end of that British campaign, over […]

I almost described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a miserable copycat of the fallen Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when it unceremoniously removed John Oyegun as its national chairman. But the ongoing Adams Oshiomhole treatment has upped the game in martial politics. I am not surprised that Oshiomhole is ending it this way. When a […]

“Oluwo says he is Àrólé Olódùmarè … Again, every oba in Yoruba land, including Oluwo, is an omo Oduduwa. He got a son and named him Oduduwa. So, with this king, the trinity is complete…”

Monguno and Kyari: Big guys in big battle

The big boys of Borno are fighting over contracts and the family head is slumbering away in his castle. Emperor Nero did exactly the same when the great fire of 64 AD swept through Rome. For six days, the fire raged without control, sparing only four of Rome’s fourteen districts. But while the blaze was […]

And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, ‘What seest thou?’ And I said, ‘I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.’ Then the Lord said unto me, ‘out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.’” This […]

Deep in the night of last week Wednesday, something happened in Adamawa. Three truckloads of 186 unkempt young men arrived in that state from Lagos. They were not welcome. “When we reached here, the military stopped us and we didn’t know their reason for doing that. We arrived at 11.00 p.m. and now it is […]

Nigeria is in deep trouble because it is a fierce battleground of civilizations. The Yoruba would say ‘ìrònú ò papò’ – our thoughts are not the same; neither are our priorities. You watched Hon Alhassan Ado Garba Doguwa, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, with his street-show last week. The 21st century lawmaker’s main […]
