Nigeria: Why Debates Don’t Win Elections

Posted: February 19, 2019 at 4:40 pm   /   AFRICA, Opinion

Before the November 8th, 2016 American Presidential Elections, the arguments of best choice and popular candidates, though discussable, barely meant anything in the foray of ideal choice.

Posted: January 22, 2019 at 5:04 pm   /   AFRICA, Opinion, Politics

The Nigeria General Elections have had the citizens divided into chaotic classes of choice, preferences, and opinions.

Nigeria: The Mediocre Games And Rollercoaster Politics Of 2nd Niger Bridge

Posted: December 17, 2018 at 5:11 pm   /   AFRICA, Opinion

Two months ago, precisely in mid-October when the news and pictures of the fully-completed Chinese wonder bridge hit the online media, it did not tickle our surprise gland as one would expect, given that attributing such huge projects to a big economy like China is probably not expected to elicit amazement.

Nigeria: 2019 Dilemma And The Story Of Another Bitter Alternative

It is as worrisome as it is sad how Nigeria’s pre-electoral hysterics of 2015 have been consciously or subconsciously forgotten. An average political conservative might consider this proposition as untenable given that whatever happens in the Nigerian societal terrain is left to its originators to sort out.
