“Three deadly plagues I have always despised: Donald Trump, COVID-19, and Muhammadu Buhari.” —Anthony Obi Ogbo I am not a sadist, but all through my life, there have been three deadly plagues I have always despised: Donald Trump, COVID-19, and Muhammadu Buhari. So in 2017, I spent seven days fasting and praying, asking God directly to take away the life of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. I knew that was the right thing to do, and...

For many Nigerians, the 2023 general elections present an important opportunity for a change in trajectory, owing to the aimless drift of the Nigerian state under the incumbent administration. The election will take place amid devastating levels of insecurity, a deteriorating economic situation, endemic corruption, increased poverty levels, and growing discontentment with the government. With political parties concluding their state congresses and national conventions to pick their candidates for legislative and executive branch offices, intense...

  The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma Udeh is currently being ripped apart by the public on social media, for calling a job seeker “an idiot” “filthy thing”, etc, all in a few seconds call which unbeknownst to her, was recorded by the caller. The commissioner was wrong for using abusive words on an applicant, but that is not all. Many people in power use far more abusive words regularly on their...

Whenever we talk about sexual health in Nigeria, it is easily tagged on women so much so that If I asked you what the name for a female specialized doctor is, you probably might not know the pronunciation but you most likely would pull some letters from your memory and say “I know the word has a ‘g’, a ‘y’ and an ‘ist'”, referring to the word ‘Gynaecologist’. However, if I asked you the name...

Advocacy to vote for individual candidates without considering their party affiliation will not change the current system; rather, it may yield a disruptive and regressive governance environment —Anthony Obi Ogbo The current governance system in Nigeria has reached the brink of structural catastrophe. The entire leadership system is wrecked beyond recognition, and the victims of the ineffectual and callous leaders are those who cheered and voted for them. There are clear indications that a radical...

Nigeria’s annual celebration of her democracy day was formerly marked on the 29th of May until it was moved to the 12th of June by the Buhari-led federal government in 2018. Also, June 12 had been a day for the official remembrance of the late M.K.O Abiola. The beginning of democracy in Nigeria brought an end to her former military regime. It is recognized to have officially begun in 1999 following the inauguration of the...

There is absolutely no doubt that Peter Obi the candidate of Labour Party is the most talked-about presidential candidate in the 2023 General Election in Nigeria. It would appear that the most suitable conversation about 2023 centres on Peter Obi and Labour Party. Many supporters of PDP and APC have been giving unsolicited advice to Obi’s growing support base on social media, on how to behave well while supporting Obi. Some say Obi’s supporters should...

“It is going to be a rough and bumpy ride to 2023” ― Anthony Obi Ogbo How can a lame-duck president with zero legislative support lead a people out of system inequality in a predominantly hostile political environment? In a democracy, the president does not have the authority to make laws or facilitate major structural transformations.  The Igbo community is yearning for equal justice and equity through sweeping governance restructure. So, what kind of candidates...

We need a president, a solid person with the integrity, wisdom, knowledge, power, capacity, and love of the country to change our nation for good. —Dr. I. D. Onwudiwe _______________ After the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Primary Elections, one presidential aspirant complained bitterly about being “betrayed” by the other governors, hence his second placement for the PDP-nominated flag-bearer’s position. Atiku Abubaker won the tally while governor Nyesom Nwike from Rivers State lost resplendently. The governor’s...

The outcome of party presidential primaries appears to signal the end of post-military elite political consensus.   Insofar as the axle of political contestation in Nigeria is the struggle for power between the northern and southern elite blocs, systemic stability hinges on the moral understanding that power will rotate between the two regions. The order of succession since the inauguration of the Fourth Republic in 1999 has largely followed the logic of this entente, starting...
