Yo folks, it’s that time when I chime out in rhyme. To chronicle the thyme and the chaos sublime, Abound in our nation of organised crime. As I witness Nigeria go back in her climb, My pen and my paper will mimic my mime. The line of this fine rhyme has to do with the grime, Of our political parties; their lemons and lime. With two years before our election’s in prime, The spinning and plotting have started their slime. I’ll speak of the parties in volume this time. In a two week edition of ‘Party Palava’ Prime. This week…

“It was like my worst nightmare! As the two ferocious men huddled over me my heart felt like it was going to explode. I couldn’t make out what they were saying because they were talking all at once but it sounded like a demand so I responded with a meek ‘o.k.’ My head was lowered so that I couldn’t see their faces but I crawled to where my bag was, took out the key to the safe and handed it to them without looking up. My head was still lowered like that of a child who had misbehaved, my heart…

2013; YEAR OF THE WATER SNAKE   We survived! Contrary to the prediction of theMayans, the world didn’t end in 2012.Yes, the Mayans got it wrong, 2012 was not the year of the final disaster, destruction and mayhem. But even though the deadline for the prophesized end of the world has passed without any fire storm or killer tsunamis ushering in the demise of our species, in Nigeria, at times, it felt as if the world was ending. This is because 2012 was the year that we could truly confirm that the soul, spirit, and humanity of Nigerians had been…

NIGERIAN OF THE YEAR This has been a year of great national confusion and ordeal for Nigerians. It has been a time when we witnessed the rise in senseless violence, national disunity, economic hardship and institutional misappropriation. At times like this, finding an individual that stands head and shoulders above everyone else to be labelled ‘The Nigerian of the Year’ is a pretty hard task. But when I decided to rummage the length and breadth of this our glorious land to identify who I believe has distinguished themselves and deserves to be labelled the Nigerian of the Year, I had…

  Yes, it’s Christmas time again. For every Christian and some non Christians, it’s a time of generosity, a time to serve, to feed, make memories, a time to be with family, to celebrate, to rest, a time to clothe and care for the needy and a time to wish a stranger Merry Christmas with a smile.Within the next few days, many communities across Nigeria will hold their different traditionalChristmas celebrations and festivals and gather to renew family bonds. But as loved ones and friends gather, the ensuing ambience in Nigeria today resulting from the persistent ineffectiveness of government is sure to cast a damper on the yultide merriment.

  The helicopter crash this past weekend that claimed the lives of Governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna State, the immediate national security adviser, retired Gen. Owoye Azazi and four others, was truly a tragedy. It was a tragedy, not only for the obvious reasons that people have died or that it was further confirmation that the Nigerian aviation industry has totally collapsed and does not meet even the most basic standards. What added more to the tragedy were some of the reactions and responses expressed by Nigerians. Although the reactions from the social networks, commentators and several public voices in…

  Surely Ibrahim was an example, obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the polytheists. He was grateful for Our bounties. We chose him and guided him unto a right path. We gave him good in this world, and in the next he will most surely be among the righteous (Qur’an 16:120-121)   Some of my fondest memories as a child were always that of the Eid Al-Adha Sallah celebration. During those earlier years of my life, it was custom for the children in my family to wake up very early in the morning, get dressed…

  All nationals in a country are expected to look up to their leaders for guidance and inspiration. When there is an apparent rift in perceptions and ideals in ways to execute the mission and vision of a country’s agenda, there will be cracks in the harmony of national coexistence. When a question was asked former President Olusegun Obasanjo at a recent conference in Warri relating to the terrorist group Boko Haram, he stated clearly that it was important for President Goodluck Jonathan to be decisive in tackling insecurity, as he himself had done while tackling the militancy in Odi,…

  For the last couple of months, a scandal has been brewing in the United Kingdom – a scandal of titanic proportion which reduces a British national treasure from the highs where only heroes dare to roam to the lowest depths of a villainess terrain. The late Sir Jimmy Savile was not only one of the most loved and respected men in Britain, he was quintessentially an omnipresent and eccentric adornment to British public life.

  As I write this, the deadlock of the race is being settled as both candidates’ pursuit of every single vote comes to an end and Americans decide their president for the next four years. For all Obama supporters all over the world, the lead for Barack at the US presidential election is a relief. Even for those of us who have no direct connection with America, the race was excruciating to watch because it is so ruddy close. But though the race is closer than initially predicted, Barack’s narrow lead is still a decisive one; one good enough for…

  On Friday, November 30, 2012, literally hundreds were shocked by the announcement of the death of Hajiya Zulaiha Muhammad Buhari, the first daughter of the former head of state, General Muhammad Buhari (retd). To anyone that knew or heard of her gentle soul, Zulaiha or Magajiya (she was named after her paternal grandmother), as she was fondly called by her loved ones, was the most humble and gentle human being you could ever meet. An endless list of complimentary words cannot define the incredible person that this astoundingly selfless lady was. She was the pride of her family, the…
