The Federal High Court judgment against the candidacy of Hon. Chris Azubogu, the APGA candidate for Anambra South senatorial zone might have removed every doubt in regards to the position of Anambra State Governor, Prof. Soludo, on the matter. First of all, Hon. Ben Nwankwo who approached the court against Hon. Chris Azubogu is of the same APGA party. In fact, in 2017, Hon. Ben was one of those that supported Willie Obiano’s second term...

“Someone reminded me that a mob has no head and hence cannot reason” — Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR My attention has been drawn to some of the tirades on social media following my frank response during an interview on Channels TV regarding the “investments” Mr. Peter Obi claimed to have made with Anambra state revenues. Sadly, several of the comments left the issue of the interview to probe or suggest motives, inferred from my response...

The 20thNational Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has come and gone. But what lingers about the meeting that took place from 16-22 October 2022 has been the dust threw up by the reactions to the decisions and milestones reached at the elite political gathering. Ordinarily, it was solely a Chinese affair, but what the outcomes means for the rest of the world seemed to have made some commentators to pry into what...

Much more than material support for the democratic process, Africa—and the developing world—needs the United States to reaffirm its commitment to democratic principles. It is far from surprising that the just concluded Brazilian presidential election attracted more than the usual attention from observers of the democratic process across Latin America. Over the course of his presidency, and particularly in the months leading to the election, President Jair Bolsonaro had made statements seemingly calculated to undermine trust in...

Nigerians hold their breath as Western nations’ terror alerts deepen apprehension about the country’s immediate prospects. Since the beginning of October, Nigerians’ attention has been held by record flooding—the worst in a decade according to experts—which has left an estimated 1.3 million people displaced, more than six hundred dead, and over seventy thousand hectares of farmlands destroyed across twenty-five of the country’s thirty-six states. While a cross section of the commentariat used the occasion to highlight...

Nigerian universities urgently need a reboot; whether ASUU should be part of that process is an open question. When the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) suspended its industrial action last week, it found itself precisely where it was back in February when the National Executive Council (NEC) announced “a comprehensive and total strike”—exasperated, forlorn, and no closer to an agreement with the Federal Government. February’s strike was the union’s first since 2020 when a nine-month industrial action...

“Dan Ulasi understands Nigeria’s electoral maps and could read them with his eyes closed” ―Anthony Obi Ogbo ________________________ Campaigns for the 2023 general election officially commenced on September 28, in line with the timetable and schedule of activities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). This date signaled the beginning of a process of shaping the electioneering landscape ahead of the general election.

An absence of political will may prove a far harder problem than complicated logistics Nearly two years after war broke out in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, the fighting is intensifying, and the interstate dimension to the conflict is as undeniable as ever. Reports indicate that some one hundred thousand Eritrean troops are assaulting Tigray, apparently in coordination with the Ethiopian military. The region has been under siege since June of 2021, with only piecemeal exceptions during the lull...

Peter Obi’s ascendance appears to have ripped up the Igbo self-determination playbook. Until recently, one overarching question dominated Nigerian political discourse: will the February 2023 general elections hold as scheduled? Underpinning this question was a legitimate concern over security—the insurgency in the northeast, sporadic banditry in the northwest, rampant abductions across the entire southern belt, and recurrent violence linked to the activities of the self-determination group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the southeast. Of...
