A dance macabre

Nothing seems interesting anymore about politics and governance in our nation. The political landscape has been unstable. Politicians, who once held sway in the supercilious Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have begun their palongo (scattered legs) dance by taking shameless refuge in the tentative All Progressives Congress (APC), either for protection from the searchlight of the anti-graft agencies or for opportunities to seek elective and appointive offices. Governance, on the other hand, has been largely uninspiring and this is accentuated by the fact that a vast majority of Nigerians find it…

EFCC, humongous money ‘discoveries’ and the continuous entertaining circus shows (Part 1)

INTRODUCTION The farcical story that NIA, Nigeria’s external secret Police, has claimed ownership of the large haul of $43.4m, £27,800 and N23.2m is heretic flapdoodle, bunkum, baloney, hogwash, poppycock and balderdash. Let this government and its minions credit Nigerians with some modicum of sense and capacity to reason, even with their valiant attempts to cow, browbeat and intimidate all opposition elements and critical voices in their so called anti-corruption war. At least, not even the terror halo cast on our individual and collective psyche has dulled our analytical minds. The…

I’m going hubby shopping (36)

James was furious. He charged towards Alice and suddenly pulled back. He snarled at her, “Who did you call a prostitute? Kiki?” Then, his face transformed from anger to something Alice couldn’t just make out. “Gawd, I love that woman!

If you had married her, she would still have gone to a real man…

It is beginning to look like an unending matter as former Plantashun frontman, Blackface, has taken another dig at Hypertek Music boss, 2Baba. Despite their relationship going all the way back to their days as members of the three-member allboys group and both being from Benue State, Blackface has cultivated the habit of hitting out at 2baba, formerly known as 2Face, on a regular basis. Arguably the least fortunate of the three members including Faze since the group got disbanded more than 10 years ago, he served another edition of…

Buhari: Testator of APC’s survival

Since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the 2019 timetable for elections, political activities are gradually gathering momentum, quietly though. There has been increased communication among top political gladiators across the geo-political zones as well as the political parties. Nocturnal meetings are already returning. Reconciliation of sworn enemies in the political arena is on-going, too. Possible alignment and realignment of political interests and forces are being discussed. Apparently, the early announcement of the election timetable may be a strategy to divert attention of politics-inclined critics from the daily lampooning…
