Coronavirus remains the rave of the moment and the talk of the whole wide world. The cause of the virus has spun an array of conspiracy theories – from the believable through the sublime to the totally ridiculous. Is COVID-19 chemical or biological warfare? Is it the cut-throat struggle for world supremacy between the United […]

Whoever imagined that we can all be treated as equal and same-same, as they say? Philosophers of all ages propounded the theory; wars and revolutions were made to actualise it; and the law, in fact, espouses it but, in real terms, it is the views of Jean Jacqueline Rousseau in The Social Contract that have […]

The title above reminded me of a piece I wrote sometime in August 2005 on that year’s students’ unrest at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye and the “White Paper” by Gov. Gbenga Daniel on the findings of the commission of inquiry his government had set up into the crisis: Students against the Ago-Iwoye traditional institution. […]

Seeing the fate that last week befell the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, must thank his stars for escaping a similar treatment weeks ago. The suspension for six months slapped on him by the Osun State Council of Chiefs must now look like child’s play; in fact, […]

He who must destroy others to succeed must know that destruction awaits him at the gate of his (own) success –Nino Brown. PDP chieftain, Chief Olabode George, was recently reported as saying he would contest the 2023 presidency so as to stop Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from becoming the president of this country. I have […]

Three years ago, when Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede was appointed vice-chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University (formerly the University of Ife) aka Great Ife, I announced that “another white man” had taken over at that great citadel of learning; the first being Professor Anthony Elujoba, the acting VC who had been drafted by his peers to […]

…and his bishoprick (office or charge) let another take – Acts 1: 20. The jury is in: A preponderant number of Nigerians want the Service chiefs dismissed from office. When we say “Service chiefs,” we mean the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Chief of Naval Staff and the largely ceremonial, administrative and […]

Any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in Mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. – John Donne.     RETIRED Geneneral Muhammadu Buhari was at it again recently with his nebulous arithmetic of 97 per cent and five per cent!

IF Britain could exit the European Union, as it did close to the midnight of 31st January, 2020; if Eritrea could exit Ethiopia; if Southern Sudan could exit Sudan, then, there is nothing that says nations cannot exit nations.

MANY readers of this column issued me “queries” over what they described as my “criminal silence” on the Supreme Court’s abracadabra of a judgment in the Ihedioha/Uzodinma tussle over the Imo governorship, which the apex court awarded to APC’s Uzodinma in what many have described as bizarre and out-of-this-world manner. Some thought I must have […]
