Anyone who wants peace must prepare for war. It is no coincident that the main reason why there has been no nuclear war or use of nuclear power since the US used the atomic bomb on some parts of Japan during the Second World War was that the superpowers (specifically USA and former Soviet Union) have mutually destructible nuclear arsenals.

Fellow Nigerians


Fellow Nigerians:

We got a situation here. 

All I can see is bunch of people:

We, the so called educated and the ones we termed uneducated or semi-illiterates, being stupid and blind in the face of religions and, lunatics in the face of cultures.

Morons we become when regionalism calls.


Why cant we stop and think for a while that the ones we hurt are You and Me.


Some few are really manipulating us for selfish ends, and we succumb, which make us pawns.


Enough of this hysteria about Turai & her husband cont'd...........

In view of predictable comments from southerners to my earlier post about the fact that this Yar'Adua/Jonathan crisis is manufactured, think about this .....

Nigeria: Of a dissonance


‘‘Whenever a representation acquires a sufficient affective charge, it charges all the representation associated with it, creating a vast complex. Or simply put, the more powerful the emotion, the wider the ring of association included in the complex’’ Basic law of psychology

Definitively, the invocation of the doctrine of necessity to empower Nigerian Vice President Goodluck Jonathan as Acting President and this surprising return of President Umaru Yar’Adua’s under the cover of darkness from a hospital in Saudi Arabia where he has been receiving medical attention for an undisclosed ailment on the eve of a cabinet vote which could have declared him medically incompetent and removed him from power have indeed charged and superimposed a disturbing climate in Nigeria. This unceremonious cabal-orchestrated backdoor-entry theatrics undermines national security, jolting the momentum gathered in his absence and capable of pushing Nigeria towards a directionless streak. And whether or not these new charges will destroy the old or vice versa, is only a matter of time.
