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 […]

Lasisi Olagunju , tinubu buhari president Onnoghen Atiku, APC, nigeria iwofa message, house keepers

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 […]

Lasisi Olagunju , tinubu buhari president Onnoghen Atiku, APC, nigeria iwofa message, house keepers

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 […]

How Yoruba’s Leopard got its claws

Lasisi Olagunju , tinubu buhari president Onnoghen Atiku, APC, nigeria iwofa message, house keepers

There cannot be silence anywhere dog is made to feast on leopard’s tail. There was a civil war in Nigeria during which Chinua Achebe wrote ‘How the Leopard got its claws’. It is a story of dog usurping the kingship of leopard because dog is blessed with teeth and claws while leopard lacked both. It […]

Amidst ruffled feathers, south-western states of Nigeria took their destiny in their hands and launched their Amotekun on Thursday. The Yoruba people know that a madness that takes years figuring out how to be naked will never dance in the marketplace. They have seen the king’s selective potency – and his selective impotence. They also […]

A dictionary’s definition of crossover is “a point or place of crossing from one side to the other.” Every December 31st, at midnight, we cross from the bank of one year to another and clap for ourselves. We made it again just last week. But for several persons known and unknown, their crossover music was […]

President Muhammadu Buhari’s best friend among Christians is one white man called Justin Welby. He is the Archbishop of Canterbury. For the first time since Buhari’s presidency, Welby saw something unpleasant about his friend’s Nigeria.

N37 billion for 469 lawmakers

Lasisi Olagunju , tinubu buhari president Onnoghen Atiku, APC, nigeria iwofa message, house keepers

It is difficult not to describe Nigeria as an underworld – a world of vampires. Our government wants to renovate the National Assembly building with N37 billion. Lawmakers of all political parties suggested it; our prudent president endorsed the profligacy. Senate President Ahmed Lawan confirmed this: “We met the president and (it was) related to […]

This president is not Sani Abacha who expired fighting some ragtag civilians called NADECO. He is also not Ibrahim Babangida who was forced to step aside before his appointed time. Perhaps one of the few strengths the three share is their taste for beautiful women (look at their wives). They all also love power as […]
