“You kept your knee on our neck. We had creative skills, but we couldn’t get your knee off our neck. It’s time for us in George’s name to stand up and say, ‘Get your knee off our necks.’” – Rev. Al Sharpton Even the dead knows what is going on right now, that the world has been busy, taking the knee for George Floyd. From the streets, states, and counties, to nation-states, and at the...

Yet, here I am still standing, pledging allegiance to NIGERIA with all sense of patriotism—a nation still being governed by some of the leaders that masterminded the devastating genocide I survived 53 years ago. Evacuating a large family from the village, Achala, to remote farmland called Eziobibi, almost twenty miles away on foot, and through near inaccessible road-paths, and under severe weather conditions was not a joke. I was seven at the time, and I...

With the pattern of duplicity and cruelty that conjures the Donald Trump’s policy actions against the people of color, tell me how these ethically malnourished oppressors can educate any organization about good character and accountability? For clarity, the African Development Bank (AfDB) is not like Chase. Nope, it is not the traditional bank where folks drive through a narrow pathway to use the ATM. It is a bilateral development finance institution facilitating sustainable economic and...

The basic psychology of a dictator is entrenched in unrestrained power, fear, and anxiety. Out of anxiety and paranoia, he resorts to extreme vendetta which impedes the process and permeates his ability to make rational decisions. But there is one irony about a dictatorship that people always ignore. Often, dictators are created by those that would become their victims. In Nigeria, such is the case, because the man who currently serves as the Governor of...

And I would affirm; that if the massacre of 30,000 Igbo indigenes were not enough to go to war, then the world can as well legalize genocide as a periodic sporting competition. And I would tell you, Igbos would bring home the winning trophy. As a matter of editorial principle, I avoid writing rejoinders; in life however, our actions are not just driven by values, but are sometimes triggered by unanticipated circumstances. So when Dr....

The mentality of victims of the social system during a pandemic invokes a persistent sense of vulnerability to their oppressive leaders, nonparticipation in the civic process, distrust of the system, and often thoughts of negativity. With such a hopeless mindset, it is excusable when they are excited over the death of those who gradually drowned them into the darkest sea of social wretchedness. Anytime a dictator or an oppressor dies, there are often three major...
