It’s senseless to ask Buhari to resign

You left PDP and joined Accord Party during the PDP crisis because you didn’t know they were going to resolve the crisis.. It is not true. I knew the resolution of the crisis was going to come. If you speak to people who were close to me when I was in PDP, I had expressed intention to leave the party long ago, about two years ago. I had gone to the house of Chief Ben Obi and others and told them that I was leaving the party. They all prevailed on me that I should please not do so. That was two years ago and then, the crisis had not even started. Now for me, I didn’t come into politics by accident or by chance, it was a deliberate move and it was a choice. I had a chance to go and study surgery in Dublin or to do something else but I decided to go into politics because ...

FG must not deal with Militant Groups Individually Former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Obong Victor Attah is one of the founders of the Pan Niger Delta Forum PANDEF.

Tit for tat or Daboh for Tarka

By Muyiwa Adetiba Whistle blowing has now become a lucrative side-kick in Nigeria. But it didn’t start yesterday; or the day before. It was always there even when financial inducements were not attached to whistle blowing. Most of whistle blowing comes from a disgruntled underling who has an inside knowledge of the goings on within an organisation. He might even be an active participant who has been short-changed in a deal. Or someone who hates the guts of a tight fisted, mean spirited boss. He may, or may not benefit financially from the whistle blowing since revenge is his greater reward. Very few whistle blowers are altruistic—from Julian Assange, the world’s most famous whistle blower to the small clerk in a ministry who reports on his boss. Their motives are usual...

Threat to national unity: The way out

•Let’s celebrate Okonkwo’s story in Kano, Musa in Enugu•Call for Amalgamation Day and whatever binds Nigeria By Magnus Onyibe His eminence, Saad Abubaker lll, the sultan of sokoto’s admonition that God does not make mistakes, must have struck strong chords in the hearts of members of both the Islamic and Christian Faiths in Nigeria. The assumption above is underscored by the fact that people of the two major religions believe there is one God. That is a fundamental and critical point of convergence and common ground. The main point of divergence in both religions is that Muslims believe in Muhammad as prophet of God while Christians believe in Jesus Christ as son of God. Wither Nigeria in another 50 years? As individuals in our homes or offices, people differ in their ...

An Eid letter to President Buhari

By Dr. Ugoji Egbujo My President. We are still in the season, so happy Eid Mubarak. I had wanted to send you this message in Igbo. So that you get the message. But I hate tit for tat.  And I know you will never give us a Sallah message in Hausa again. Our prayers were answered. You are back.  Alhamdullilah! But we are not happy, we have not heard from you. We know that the other speech was an emotional outburst, of an angry father. No father feels happy when some of his children cross red lines.  May our anger not lead us to sin. President Buhari Mai Gida, we have been waiting for a talk from the heart. We know you are not afraid of telling us the nature and scope of your illness and recovery. We suspect you want the evil wishers to get drenched and drunk in their rumo...
