ASARI DOKUBO’S CHALLENGE AND JOE IGBOKWE’S SEARCH FOR RELEVANCE

ASARI DOKUBO’S CHALLENGE AND JOE IGBOKWE’S SEARCH FOR RELEVANCE

    Nigeria as a united country continues to unravel and it is the responsibility of all reasonable stakeholders to continually question the raison d’etre of its continued preservation. The Rights activist par excellence Asari Dokubo is doing just that but most of all he is balancing out the overly tilted scale by the undue weight of those from the Northern and Western parts of Nigeria who believe it is their birthright to monopolise the…

The Illusion of the French Elections 

The Illusion of the French Elections 

The election of the Europeanist Macron, who is a real child of the banking system and of the forces of globalization, to the presidency of France has prevented, on the one hand, the automatic activation of the decomposing procedures of a European Union that is under the German control and has created, on the other hand, an incredible illusion in the bureaucratic circles of Brussels with regard to the prospects of its longevity. However, a…

BIAFRA:In the struggle for our freedom, all hail our heroes

BIAFRA:In the struggle for our freedom, all hail our heroes

The above heading is also the title of a song originally composed by Charles O. Okereke. The lyrics of this song which quickly turned into a classic in a few short years were originally conceived in 1970. Okereke 14 at the time was just a child – a Biafran child, that is. As Biafra’s defeat was announced over the radio waves, the words of the song tumbled into his young mind. Ironically, the prophetic declarations…

The Igbo want to do something for themselves – create a country for and by their selves   Igbo as an ethnic nation has a population of 50 million.

Igbo journey out of Nigeria can only be led by the best that Igbo have to offer

Igbo journey out of Nigeria can only be led by the best that Igbo have to offer

Igbo journey out of Nigeria can only be led by the best that Igbo have to offer   We are confident that it is a few focused and incorruptible Igbo who through team spirit (njiko,) aka idi ocha (sterling character) and amamife (wisdom) will eventually, without guns and bombs free the Igbo from Nigeria. These Igbo-centric politicians will need to work in partnership with their Igbo brothers and sisters both at home and abroad to…

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage   What Igbo people want is to leave Nigeria  On the 29th of May 1966 the Igbo irreversibly renounced their colonially imposed Nigerian citizenship. That date marks the official beginning of the 1966 Pogrom of Igbo people in Nigeria. So, it goes without saying that what the Igbo want is to cut clear and exist sovereignly, politically and territorially independent of the Nigerian state.   There has never been…

BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

Just like the birth pangs of a woman in labour heralds the innocent cry of a new-born baby; so do the travails and committed struggles of any oppressed people herald the dawn of their freedom. This is the natural sequence of events in the integral calculus that create freedom. History cannot afford me any parallel where a nation has emerged from the womb of oppression into freedom without bitter struggle and sacrifice. In the entire…

APC’s FAILURE AND THE BLAME GAME SYNDROME: REQUIEM FOR NIGERIA

APC’s FAILURE AND THE BLAME GAME SYNDROME: REQUIEM FOR NIGERIA

One factor that has led to the collapse of many societies throughout history is internal decay brought about by inept and visionless leadership. The pages of history are littered with examples of societies whose final descent into perdition was preceded by unprecedented internal rot. This type of rot is usually sustained by a corps of lackadaisical and moronic leadership that made a vocation of blaming their predecessors for the rot of society without as much…

News:Buhari’s Illness and the Resurgence of Official Lies

News:Buhari’s Illness and the Resurgence of Official Lies

The recent uproar and fear concerning President Muhammadu Buhari’s state of health has not come to many discerning Nigerians as a surprise. What is rather curious and embarrassing has been the ostrich and evasive denial of presidential aides and others of their kind on the true state of the Buhari’s health. For one thing, no person should be rejoicing that the Buhari is critically ill; for illness of whatever nature is not a good wish…

BUHARI, PAYMENT OF N5000 TO THE UNEMPLOYED AND THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA

BUHARI, PAYMENT OF N5000 TO THE UNEMPLOYED AND THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA

The phrase “robbing Peter to pay Paul” is not new to us. It was in 1661AD that Peter Heylyn in his Ecclesia Restaurata sought to explain the origin and import of this phrase. Though his attempt has been punctured severally by other etymologists, the phrase suggests a calamitous sequence of events where, before the Reformation, taxes had to be paid from the treasury of St. Peter’s church in Rome to defray the running costs of…
