Boko Haram + Goodluck = a marriage made in hell?

Conventional wisdom in Nigeria suggests that Boko Haram is sponsored by some elites in northern Nigeria to destabilise the government of Goodluck Jonathan. However, who stands to benefit the most from Boko Haram violence? The insecurity in most of the northeast of the country has been used as an excuse to reschedule the (s)elections from 14 February to 28 March.  …

Should Naija celebs be openly endorsing politricksters?

Many famous and infamous Naijas have come out in favour of either the PDP or the APC.  These include ex Super Eagles captains Nwankwo Kanu and Joseph Yobo endorsing Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election. Singers/rappers Flavour, MI, Ice Prince, Yemi Alade and company collaborated in what, I must say, is a good campaign song for the APC candidate for governor of Lagos …

Double irony for Buhahari

Buhahari as a military dictator contributed to the destruction of the Nigerian Railway Corporation. Buhahari is now running for president claiming he is about change. And while campaigning he travelled on a train on the same railway service revitalised by his opponent after he had contributed to its derailment. This looks like an own goal for Buhahari.

The devil’s endorsement

It never ceases to amaze how Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari seem to worry whether former rulers like Ibrahim Babangida and Olusegun Obasanjo endorse their respective bids for the highest office in the land. Both Obasanjo and Babangida, each in their well-pampered bubble surrounded by a battalion of sycophants, have also convinced themselves that their say in who should rule …

The case for none of the above

As polling day 14 February approaches, it appears to me that support for either President Goodluck Jonathan or his main rival Muhammadu Buhari is more driven by antagonism towards either candidate than their individual merits. From my discussions with practically everyone I know in the pro-Buhari camp, for them it is time for “change”.  They don’t care whether it is …

Mama P or Aisha Buhari: Who would you prefer by your side in a battle?

APC presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari’s wife looks homely, sweet, tender and pleasing to the eye.  If you were shooting a Nollywood or Kannywood movie and needed a Fulani mother, you would have nailed it if you found someone that looked like Aisha. Like something valuable and precious, with a “handle with care” sticker, she would seem out of place in …
