“Schools cannot be shut down forever. Markets cannot be locked up forever and you cannot lock down a country forever .” ―Ebuka Onyekwelu The COVID pandemic has been on the prowl for about a year now, wrecking economies, maiming civilization to the shock and confusion of mankind. Resolute, it is defying science and knowledge; the twin biggest treasures of modernity. The pandemic has continued to take captives on its own terms, even changing its nature...

On January 6, a large group of rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to unconstitutionally obstruct the certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, following his triumph in the presidential election held on November 3. Fortunately for U.S. democracy, centuries-old institutions held firm in the face of this assault, as Vice President Mike Pence officially announced President-Elect Biden’s victory after Congress completed the counting of the votes. Unfortunately, the events on January 6 could prove detrimental for...

Whether this country lives or dies is in the hands of the white race. Not in the hands of Antifa. Not with the clamoring, baying demands of BLM ―Don Okolo Indeed, it is a man’s world. Maybe, it isn’t. I couldn’t have said so, considering that I had a mother with the same abilities to challenge any man in mind and in the muscle of purpose and tenacity. Inside the constructs of strict, straight-on-the-arrow morals...

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.

The government in Nigeria is yet to recognize the full rights and privileges of its citizens as guaranteed by the country’s constitution. ―Ebuka Onyekwelu It is evident that this Government only pays attention to national issues only when they are raised by foreign agencies Nigerians are already used to being ignored by their own government to the extent that in most instances, the government was nearly begged to talk to Nigerians on crucial issues as...

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...

Those profiting from electioneering and elections in Anambra state might have their best year yet, in this year’s gubernatorial election. ―Ebuka Onyekwelu As the Anambra governorship election gets closer, political considerations shape nearly every action of government and non-government actors. Politics takes preponderance over governance, as it is exalted to the front, centre, and back rows. Within the government circle, not much happens except schemes on how to get an acceptable candidate into Government House....

By Adedeji Adewumi, Guest Columnist ____ Activism is both a science and an art. While social activists in Nigeria do understand and have become successful in the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of the art of activism, we are yet to master the science of activism. The art of activism is the front-end, public-view life of activism – the protests, calling out and public shaming of leaders, filing of lawsuits and strikes to name a few. The...

Recently, Nigerian media and social spaces have been inundated with arguments on DNA test. This is not the first time Nigeria’s social spaces experience this level of argument on a child’s paternity. However, this time, the argument has refused to rescind or varnish.
