Buhari’s Trumpian propaganda to cover up the Lekki Massacre

Lekki terrorism Sadism subsidies election El-Rufai terrorists Abacha, coronavirus, Progressives, Nigeria,

On October 20, I couldn’t sleep in my base here in the United States because I was glued to social media monitoring livestreams of the agonizing state-authorized mass massacres of peaceful protesters in Lekki, Lagos.  I was crushed and despondent beyond description. My situational insomnia was triggered by vicarious pains. The sights and sounds of […]

AN unprecedently seismic youth-led force is convulsing the foundations of Nigeria, which once and for all settles the widespread notion that Nigeria’s youths are lazy, ignorant, and detached. I call this the EndSWAT/EndSARS youth steamroller. Like the literal steamroller, this Nigerian youth steamroller is massive, resolute, persistent, fearless, implacable, and determined to crush everything and […]

There is an abysmallylow legal literacy in Nigeria. And the Nigerian political elite have discovered that they can exploit the fear and ignorance of the law in the general population to terrorize their critics into silence and self-censorship through the threats— or actual institution— of meritless lawsuits. American defamation lawyers call this “Strategic Lawsuit Against […]

A former minister called me a few days ago to say the focus of my columns on Muhammadu Buhari ignores my own 2018 disclosure that he is a captive of an irrecoverably degenerative mental decline that ensures that he doesn’t know what he says and does. “To criticize Buhari is to beat a carcass,” he […]

Nigeria will be 60 years old as a formally independent country on Thursday, but the divisibility and tiresomely endless feuding that have emerged as some of its defining features since its forced birth more than a century ago show no sign of abating. The immobilising factiousness of the past five years have particularly conduced to […]

Responsible and morally sensitive governments all over the world toil day and night to invent novel ways to make life a little better for their citizens and to assuage the inevitable existential injuries that life episodically inflicts on people.  But not so for the Buhari regime. The regime’s single-minded obsession and raison d’être, it would […]

The poor in Nigeria are continually stripped of subsidies that subside the existential hurt that comes with living in the poverty capital of the world. Petrol subsidies are particularly enduring emotional blackmail weapons against the poor by people in government. Since 1970 when Yakubu Gowon increased the pump price of petrol from 6 kobo to […]

The All Progressives Congress (APC) subsists on lies and deceit, like its twin the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but the party told a fundamental truth on September 2 when it said in a statement, according to the Sun, that Buhari’s “hiked petrol price, electricity tariff reflect [the] wishes of [the] citizenry.” This may come across […]

A screenshot of an April 13, 1997 interview Bola Tinubu granted ThisDay with the headline “I Don’t Believe in One Nigeria” trended on social media last week. In my social media commentary on the headline, I pointed out that, “Nigerian politicians are shamelessly situational ‘patriots.’ They’re irredentists when they’re outside the orbit of power and […]

I’ve always had a sneaky suspicion that judgements on election petitions in Nigeria are influenced by political pressures from the presidency, but a conscientious judge who is familiar with the issues and is deeply concerned about the brazenness of the politicisation of election tribunal judgements confirmed my suspicions last week. One of the thrills and […]
