    The world will not be destroyedby those who do evil, but by thosewho watch them without doing anything.–Albert Einstien Let us pause for a while and remind ourselves of what it would look like, if Nigerians lose their sense of reasoning and embrace anarchy in this age of technology advancement and the great awareness that the 21st Century has exposed mankind to. Also, we should ruminate that after half a Century years of Nigeria’s servitude to three years of civil…

    By Vincent Akanmode/ THE NATION It is just as well that Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, saw the need to “clarify” his widely reported assertion that herdsmen have the right to go about brandishing AK-47 rifles because they need to defend themselves. Amid the outrage provoked by herders’ killing of hundreds of innocent people across the country, Governor Mohammed declared at the closing ceremony of the 2021 Press Week of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Bauchi State Council of the…

    Obviously exasperated and frustrated by the multifarious crises confronting and grossly devaluing higher education in the country, Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, over three decades ago, advocated that universities in Nigeria be shut for a year, during which their problems would be intensively studied and enduring remedies found.

    BY OUR REPORTERS/ GUARDIAN.NG • We Are Not Operating As A Nation, Says Soyinka• Faults Gumi Theory Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has urged Nigerians to spend less energy questioning the number of loans being taken by the Federal Government to improve infrastructure, stressing that the benefits of rail transportation far outweighs the value of the loans. He also said that controversies over the Chinese loans miss the point, since, according to him, “It is up to legislators to decide where loans come from.” His words: “I take loans as a human being, how much more if you are running a country and you need facilities, as long as you work out how to repay the loans. It is beyond my competence to look into the terms of borrowing and repaying the loans. “I want to see the trains. I grew up seeing the trains. It is about time we got the trains back. Don’t let adverse terms scare us. That is what the economists and the CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) exit for. That is why the procurement agencies are there. That is why we put the Senators there.” While expatiating on the importance of rail transport, Soyinka urged…
