President Buhari and violent herdsmen – Dr. Ugoji Egbujo

The president says it’s not tribalism. His impotence against the herdsmen is baffling. He has figures to prove it. The herdsmen killed 756 people in 2 years during Jonathan’s era.

Buhari denies tribalism has shackled the arms of the law and tempered his customary allergy for social disorder. I believe him.

The Body Of Benchers and the organization of commotion – By Dr. Ugoji Egbujo

Nigeria has a way of making  special occasions ordinary.  Graduates of the  Nigerian Law School were called to the bar a few days ago. The venue was the International Conference Center Abuja.  Invited guests  lined up under a bitter sun. At some point  the queue  was two kilometer long.  The  motor traffic around the center  was utter chaos.

Atiku Abubakar and the PDP: Time to change the tales – Dr. Ugoji Egbujo

Look away NERC, till the DISCOs have had us to their fill.  National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), you can pretend to be asleep.  After all they were all sleeping while  fugitive Maina  went around town in pomp and ceremony. If they wake you, tell them you  have not received any complaints. You don’t have to admit  you  know. You don’t have to confess  that  the  Electricity Distribution Companies (DISCOs) have been reaping what they, and their ancestor, didn’t not sow.  The ordinary people have no stamina, no courage.

Long live corruption: Abdulrasheed Maina is a miracle worker – Dr. Ugoji Egbujo

He was picked  to reform pensions. Yes, he hasn’t always been the face of corruption.  He discovered pension ghosts and their living cohorts. They had been draining the sweat and blood of  Nigerian workers.  He brought innovation.  He became an  anti corruption Czar. Monies were recovered, many were prosecuted. His sun looked like it would never set.
