Between Buhari and Momodu

Whether its founder(s) had intended it to be integral to the foundation that gives it its enduring sustenance (now called a “dividend”) or it became one of its unintended consequences, the citizens’ right to express their displeasure—-if not anger—-through open letters or memos to their political leaders about the state of affairs in their society and/or how they’re being governed ...

Of Bishop Mathew Kukah and military coup

For someone whom a significant segment of society holds in high esteem as representing its moral authority and its moral conscience and a public intellectual to boot, one would think that even the mere hinting publicly that the military may be a viable alternative to a civilian and democratic government—-having witnessed the atrocities that are inherent in the military and ...

From Africa: A Status Report

Azu Ishiekwene   The 30th summit of African Union leaders in Addis Ababa on Monday came at a moment when the continent is struggling to find its bearings.   And we didn’t need Donald Trump’s slur to remind us of the work that still needs to be done.   After years of violent conflicts, Liberia just had a peaceful transfer of power, which ...

Who isn’t afraid of Kayode Fayemi?
