    Is America Still A Stable Democracy?

    December 30, 2020, the New York Times published an article about Franco A, a German neo-Nazi living a double life with two different identities. While he was a lieutenant in the German Army, he was posing as a Syrian refugee under the name of David Benjamin, supposedly a minority Syrian Christian, and had been planning […] More

    COVID-19 And The Professors

    I hate to see professors die. And in recent days, we have lost three of them to the strange ailment called COVID-19, currently ravaging the world. Within two weeks, we lost three professors in quick succession. Habu Galadima, Director-General, National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS). Femi Odekunle, renowned criminologist and member of the […] More

    Place Where Angels Fear To Tread

    I’ve seen, in many forums, fans of renowned predictors trying very hard to defend the reputation of a number of these seers against the onslaught of mocking videos showing just how wide off the mark were their predictions for last year.

    You cannot inspect the wreckage of 2020 closely without seeing the rubble of spectacularly failed forecasts by reputable seers. I’ve seen, in many forums, fans of renowned predictors trying very hard to defend the reputation of a number of these seers against the onslaught of mocking videos showing just how wide off the mark were […] More

    2021: Year To Calm Down and Wail Less

    When the year 2020 popped out of the womb of time, nobody knew that it was going to be what Yoruba people call Ogbologbo. Rough and tough. Unpredictable. Hungry and angry, consuming anything and everything it could lay its jaws on. Across America, Europe, Asia, Africa, indeed, all continents, time, like an ever-rolling stream, has […] More

    The Guest, Coro, Didn’t Come To Play

    It’s true that Coronavirus is not among the top five most deadly diseases in Africa today. But it’s also correct that at this time, we know far less about the COVID-19 pandemic than we know about malaria, diarrhoeal diseases, Ischaemic heart diseases, meningitis, tuberculosis, or HIV/AIDS. Yet, we’re fooling around with COVID-19 and making convenient […] More

    Who Gets The Vaccine And Who Doesn’t?

    As of December 28, 2020, Africa was the only continent where a single shot of the coronavirus vaccine had not been administered on anyone. It could remain like that for some time to come. Some countries on the continent are still talking about using local herbs in place of the scientifically proven vaccines as protection […] More

    What Happened To Akufo-Addo?

    In a year when congenital incompetence compounded by catastrophic mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic cost President Donald Trump his second term, you would think that Akufo-Addo’s advertised exceptional handling of the virus in Ghana would override any earlier transgressions.

    If we could cast a vote in the December 8 presidential election in Ghana, President Nana Akufo-Addo, would have won re-election by miles. Nigerians love him to bits. He talks a good game. In the first two years or more of his presidency, I remember a number of videos shared with me on the Akufo-Addo […] More

    Buhari’s Government Is A Figment

    The current administration rode into power in 2015 with a basketful of electoral promises that put Nigerians in a dreamland. It over-promised and has, so far, under-delivered. Not even the most ardent supporters of President Mohammadu Buhari can beat their chest in confidence that he has been able to make a dent. Nigeria’s problems are […] More

    In February 2020, Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nation said at the Special Committee on Decolonisation, “This year marks the last year of the Third International Decade to Eradicate Colonialism. “This milestone is an important opportunity to take stock of our progress. I will remain alongside you as you make another push […] More

    Governor Ortom, Kiss And Go Home Is Not Enough

    Last week Thursday was December 10 which ended the 16 Days Activism on Violence Against Women. It was also the International Human Rights Day. Unfortunately, it was also during this period – when the entire world came together both physically and virtually to discuss issues bordering on women’s human rights – that a certain Pius […] More
