Or call it the death of illusion! The sordid and dastardly events of the past few days brought my days as an undergrad at the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) flooding through my mind. We bristled with ideologies and were called “ideologues” or “Socialists” by our ideologically-empty, naive or outright reactionary opponents […]

The Saturday, October 10, 2020 Ondo State governorship election has come and gone but the reverberations continue. That election will be the talk-of-the-town for a long time to come for its bright spots as well as for its shenanigans. The election appears to have sharpened the shape of Ondo State politics for the future. Zoning […]

NIGERIA did not just begin to flounder at 60; its floundering began a long time ago. But it had always waddled through – wobbling and fumbling all the time. It survived the pessimism of its founding fathers and, later, a two-and-half-year civil war. It has seen coups and counter-coups – failed and successful – and […]

In Nigeria, election is war and in war, “truth is the first casualty.” Greek tragic dramatist, Aechylus (525 BC – 456 BC), posited that in war, truth is the first casualty. Sun Tzu, the 5th Century Chinese General, said all warfare is based on deception. Samuel Johnson (The Idler, 1758) reasoned that “Among the calamities […]

The pictures of heaven and hell painted by the scriptures contrast sharply: One is a place of happiness, joy, and enjoyment while the other is a place of deprivation, sadness, and punishment. God presides over one while the devil or Satan superintends the other. Both are places of reward: heaven is a place of reward […]

“Die Religion…ist das Opium des Volkes” – Karl Marx   Interpreted, the above celebrated dictum of Karl Marx means “Religion is the opiate of the masses“ or “Religion is the opium of the people.” Drug abuse or drug addiction keeps its addicts stranded in a world of illusion, cast far away from reality; wasting its […]

THE much talked-about Edo State governorship election comes up next Saturday, 19th September, 2020. The run down to the election has exposed the underbelly of the country’s politics, such that it not only leaves much to be desired but also leaves a sour taste in the mouth. This time last year, Godwin Obaseki was in […]

In addition to the rants and chants on social media, subtle diplomacy is ongoing on CAMA by church leaders whose umbrage at government – and the public’s outrage against CAMA – has been as vociferous as they have been ferocious. Religion is a matter of the heart and emotions and sentiments are the fuel that […]

Bishop David Oyedepo of the Winners’ Chapel has become the whipping boy and fall guy of those defending CAMA for good as well as for bad reasons or motives. Interestingly but not surprisingly, many of the critics are supposedly not just Christians but also church leaders. In Nigeria, church leaders are quick and agile at […]

Karma or the Law of Karma is an expression usually used – though not exactly appropriately – to mean comeuppance or reward for an evil that someone has done. According to Wikipedia, Karma means “the result of a person’s actions as well as the actions’ themselves. It is a term about the cycle of cause […]
