The Coronavirus that was unleashed on the peoples of the world at the beginning of the year has, as at October 22, 2020, infected 41,104,946 people and killed 1,128,325 according to World Health Organization (WHO) data. In the ten months or so since its ferocious rampage, COVID-19 has undoubtedly re-configured the world’s social dynamics, demystified perceived invincibility of superpowers and humbled arrogant world leaders. The arsenals of the world’s mightiest militaries were rendered useless as...

President Buhari is the very last human being once peaceful protesters, turned angry mob, want to listen to. ―Ebuka Onyekwelu The end SARS campaign has been on for about the third week now. Throughout the first and second weeks of the protest, it went on smoothly and extraordinarily peaceful to the utter chagrin of those who expect so little of Nigerian youth. Clearly, President Buhari who once referred to Nigerian youth as “lazy”, may as...

The Government of Anambra State has concluded plans to present the 2021 budget to the Anambra State House of Assembly on Thursday 22nd October, 2020. This will be the last budget of the administration of Governor Willie Obinao considering that he will be handing over to a successor in March, 2022. Very clearly, the budget of 2022 is going to be a subject of intense politicizations wherein the incoming governor and the outgoing governor will...

As a practicing Catholic, I do not go to confession. These priests do not deserve to hear my sins that belong in the Ears of God. ―Don Okolo There is a Catholic priest in Louisiana, and he takes the cake. I don’t know what his name is, but I guarantee you the one called Samael, Lucifer, that is, does. If anyone in the realm of Heaven is weeping right about now, it is Jesus, The...

The world of computing is full of buzzwords: AI, supercomputers, machine learning, the cloud, quantum computing and more. One word in particular is used throughout computing – algorithm. In the most general sense, an algorithm is a series of instructions telling a computer how to transform a set of facts about the world into useful information. The facts are data, and the useful information is knowledge for people, instructions for machines or input for yet...

In 2017, Nigerian youths adopted a campaign against brutality from the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). The objective was to catalyze mass action against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the NPF set up to respond to armed robberies. The campaign, which adopted a mix of online and offline strategies, was popularly known on social media as #EndSARS. Over ten thousand Nigerians signed a petition and submitted it to the National Assembly calling for...

The two finalists for the position of director general of the World Trade Organization (WTO) are Yoo Myung-hee, Republic of Korea, and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a Nigerian and (since 2019) an American citizen. The media is portraying Yoo Myung-hee as an international trade specialist and a WTO insider, while Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala describes herself as a WTO outsider; she combines, however, exceptional political and diplomatic experience with her economic training and subsequent career. She has been twice Nigeria’s finance...

By Ebuka Onyekwelu There is nothing more brazenly scandalous than abuse of power and public trust. But somehow, Nigerians have been able to put up with more than enough outrageous abuses, vandalism of sorts and dehumanization of the highest level. This, to the point that most Nigerians now justify or at least rationalize these incongruities, perhaps those are part of what it takes to be a Nigerian. In public bus, once police stops a bus...

Louise Glück is the first poet to win the Nobel Prize in Literature since Tomas Tranströmer in 2011 and the first American to win since Toni Morrison in 1993. In their preference for the muddiness of everyday life over explicit engagement with their political and social issues, you can see a broad link between Glück and Tranströmer. On the surface, though, Morrison and Glück couldn’t appear to be more different. Morrison’s work lays bare both the lasting scars and...

Vice presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Mike Pence sat far apart and separated by plexiglass for the only 2020 vice presidential debate, held in Utah on Oct. 7. Their exchanges were more civil than the presidential debate a week earlier, but Pence – and Harris to a lesser degree – avoided tough questions from USA Today’s Susan Page about the Supreme Court, COVID-19 response, succession and the peaceful transfer of power. Our experts were each...
