    Nigeria’s comedy industry grows by the day. Comedy, it now seems, is the readiest avenue to stardom in Nigeria; very funny. Every which way one looked in the country they are as likely to behold an unfurling hilarious drama. You do not need to be able to afford a premium ticket to enjoy a good comedy at the Muson Centre in Lagos; or such-like places. Variegated comedy theaters abound in the Nigerian landscape, with high-performing actors and actresses on hand;…

The troubles are multifaceted. Over and above every other thing is the battle for the soul of Nigeria. The centrifugal forces from different sectors of Nigeria want to rip it apart. It looks like a joke. But never before has the country been so…

  • By Simon Abah: Nigeria’s toxic NGO regulation bill By Simon Abah: Nigeria’s toxic NGO regulation bill
    I refer to Chidi Anselm Odinkalu’s opinion piece titled, “Nigeria’s toxic NGO Regulation Bill” in The Guardian of July 27, 2017. His fears on a draconian bill from the federal parliament (House) to monitor the activities of non-governmental organisations are in order. Thanks to civil society, Nigerians are vibrant, and demand accountability from governments which have led to the ushering in of a degree of open governance. Thanks to foreign aid, the AIDS scourge around the world has reduced tremendously.…

  • Northern Governors blame Southeast politicians for zone’s backwardness Business and Economy Northern Governors blame Southeast politicians for zone’s backwardness
    Northern governors have blamed Igbo politicians for the problems of infrastructure and underdevelopment in the South East. They insited that the por paerformance of the zone’s men in positions of authority in the past was responsible for the situation and not because of marginalisation The visiting governors led by Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima, who is also chairman of Northern Governors’ Forum, decried the poor state of major roads in the Southeast, but said politicians from the zone “are only interested in pocketing the resources that would have been used in developing the zone at the detriment of the people”. They spoke in Owerri, the Imo State capital, during a meeting with Igbo and Hausa leaders at the Government House. The governors rounded off their truce tour which took off in Port Harcourt on Monday, moved to Umuahia, the Abia State capital, before arriving in Owerri. They met with Governors Nyesom Wike (Rivers) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).

  • Fatunde: Togo risks being plunged into a civil war Business and Economy Fatunde: Togo risks being plunged into a civil war
    • As Citizens Battle To Dethrone Eyadema Family’s Stronghold• Abuja, France Should Step In The Togolese seem to be protesting the hegemonic rule by the Gnassingbe Eyademas. Did you see this coming?It did not come as a surprise, because succession crisis in Togo is as old as the country itself. Remember that the first President of Togo, late Sylvanus Epiphanio Olympio, was assassinated in a military coup that brought late Gnassingbe Eyadema to power, who was then a sergeant. Late Eyadema got to power after serving in Indo-china and during the war of independence in Algeria, as well as Vietnamese independence war against French colonial rule. So he came home after working under French military rule and later when Togo became independent, he continued to work with Togolese armed forces. But he carried out a coup with others that resulted in Olympio’s death. However, in that coup, just like what happened in France under Napoleon, the leaders could not settle for who should head the country’s leadership. So, he organised his own coup and became Togo’s head of state. Since then, the late Eyadema ruled Togo under a one party regime (PRT), even when there was a multiparty system in…
