ABUJA —The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum on Monday expressed concern over the current debt profile of Nigeria, which currently put at N37 Trillion incurred by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government. That opposition was worried that the Federal Government was gradually plunging the country into bankruptcy with its excessive borrowings on frivolous items, saying that over 80 percent of the normal Appropriation was being spent on debt servicing. The Forum in a...

Desperate activists bastardize Biafra’s “May 30, sacredness” into an outrageous blood-spattered rite of remembrance. On December 7, 1941, the Japanese bombarded Pearl Harbor, killing thousands of U.S. servicemen. America, divided by ideological differences concerning warfare, united behind a declaration of war with Japan. That is the power of communal closeness after a tragedy. Thus, the psychology of unity after tragedy remains a natural phenomenon that instills a feeling of closeness following a tragedy. It breaks down walls...

“Until this country undergoes a total overhaul of its governance system, nothing moves – not in north, south, east, or west,” ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo For three days now or so, Nigeria’s political terrain has been stormy, but there was no natural weather condition. No, there was no rain.  Last Tuesday, state governors from the southern part of the country, met in Asaba and issued a communique in which they demanded the immediate restructuring...

After a dramatic mayoral election meltdown, Attorney Tony Buzbee is facing another challenge ―this time in a district court. ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo Rusty Hardin, an attorney, is not well-known to me, as my usual interest is in politicians and leaders or perhaps, politics and leadership. However, I do recall a few of his litigation endeavors. For instance, when the former Houston Oilers quarterback, Warren Moon, was acquitted by a Fort Bend County jury...

“He may just be compromising the lives of thousands of Texans to structure his next tenure.” ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo Texas Governor Greg Abbott has always used his physical paralysis as a talking point to advocate his zeal for overcoming individual challenges. Paralyzed from the waist down since 1984 after an accident involving an oak tree falling on him, Abbott has used a wheelchair ever since. In fact, through this experience, this Governor explained...

Aside from the Saw-Scaled Vipers, COVID-19, and Donald Trump, the only other evil that I hate with a passion is this brute called Rush Limbaugh. ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo I have not had this in a long time, but this day, I honestly felt that Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Merlot would perfectly suit the occasion. So immediately after the death of the conservative talk show radio scoundrel, Rush Limbaugh, was announced, I went into a...

The only difference between Donald Trump and Idi Amin Dada —a cannibal who ruled Ugandan from 1971-79, is that Trump never cooked and ate his victims. ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo How Trump Dragged America into a ‘Union of Coup Nations’ By the time I left Nigeria in the late 80s, Coup d’état did not mean anything to me. I had witnessed a lot of coups and crises and could smell them before they occurred....

Sociopolitical activism is not a chorus for the backstreet youth. Nope, it is not a contest for social media “likes” and “shares”, neither is it a tool for an income-earning opportunity. ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo Anybody can be an activist. It just depends on the political environment. Japanese activist Yuri Kochiyama said, “I didn’t wake up and decide to become an activist. But you couldn’t help notice the inequities, the injustices. It was all...

Igbos forgot that it was Haiti, not Israel that stood by them, took them in, fed them throughout the three years of a failed war to sustain the Biafran nationhood.  ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo I recall in 2010 when the then Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, led a Nigerian delegation, comprising the Red Cross, the private sector, the entertainment industry representatives to evaluate the level of damage by the 7.2 earthquakes that devastated Haiti....
