Three things Buhari must do

I have watched the goings-on of the general elections and have noted what transpired and I thank God for His Mercies.

GEJ will be leaving the Presidency come March 29 and GMB will step in. What goes for him are his trustworthiness and his integrity. It is on that we believe he would do what he promises to do for his countrymen and women.

Beauty and strength of Lagos

Is there something emotionally wrong with us Nigerians that while we had just about shifted our political trajectory some are now hell-bent in throwing the proverbial baby out with the bath water? Nigerians, we need to talk and clear the air or we run the risk of deepening the long held resentments and hatred for one another. The last couple of days as you will see below, shows that it is obvious that time has come for that conversation

Morning after the day before

By now, it is becoming clear which way the political climate will be for the next five years. Whatever the decision, I pray that there will be calm and acceptance. We hold in our hands the power to shape Nigeria, no matter what our opinions and political affiliation is, we have to strive whatever the majority decision to contribute to nation building.

Thine self be true

It was a relief not to write about Nigeria and its brand of politics last week. It felt so much better not to be embroiled in the dark arts of its politics.

The tittle-tattle has been going on for so long that, it would be wrong for me not to mention how this behaviour and how it comes across to rational human beings. Sadly, the reality of the situation is lost on those who cannot see sense.

The gloves are off…

It is becoming painfully obvious that the electioneering is going to be one long gerrymandering mean fest; who can shout the loudest, spend the most money, wear the most colourful attires, pull the most crowd, insult the most, the most incorrigible, most abusive, throws the most blows or cause the most upset and rent the largest crowd.

Delayed but never denied

Election day has been postponed we are told as there are concerns of insecurity and safety of voters. That is the official story and whether we believe it or not, they are sticking to this official line. So now when Election Day approaches, Nigerian lives matter! Pull the other one, I say, Nigerians will have their say whatever time it is. The subterfuge is transparent and to some they had seen it coming. So though it came as a surprise to many, it seems that some had expected that the government was going to but spanners in to the works.
