Why is Jerusalem So Important to Israelis & Palestinians? – By Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | February 2, 2018 – President Trump’s recent decision to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has ruffled feathers across the world – but delighted Israel and some Christian evangelicals.

Buhari’s New Year Speech and Sagay’s Outbursts – By Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe  |  Nasarawa, Nigeria | January 20, 2018 –  I was reasonably impressed with the overall tenor of President Buhari’s 2018 New Year’s message. Compared with some of his previous speeches, the broadcast was non-combative and represented an attempt to talk to Nigerians – instead of talking down to them as some […]

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe  | Nasarawa, Nigeria | Dec. 20, 2017 – Buhari’s two- day visit to the South-east is a proof – if one is still needed- that the race for 2019 has begun in all earnest and that he will – unless God decides otherwise – be a candidate in the election. The late […]

PDP and Fayose’s Bid for the Presidency – By Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | Nov. 28, 2107 – That the whistle for 2019 has long been blown is not in doubt. While many of the people in the (now rejuvenated?) PDP with rumoured presidential ambitions seem too scared to throw their hats into the ring, Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose took the […]

Nnamdi Kanu: The Morning After – Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | Nov. 28, 2017 – In my column of September 7 2017 entitled, ‘Nnamdi Kanu and the Redeemer Complex’, I made a few propositions about Nnamdi Kanu that now seem prophetic. I will like to quote two passages from that piece: “…a redeemer movement becomes dangerous when the […]

Why We Should also Listen to Maina – Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | November 18, 2017 – An article on Maina with a title such as the above is not likely to win its author any applause or friends.

In search of the ‘detribalized’ Nigerian – By Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | November 3, 2017 – Nigerians love buzzwords – slogans that are repeated frequently enough, (and imbued with assumed values), that they begin to sound like established facts or self-evident truths. One of the favourite mantras in Nigeria today is the notion of the ‘detribalized’ Nigerian. Depending on the […]

Re: IPOB is an insurgency, not a terrorist organization

By Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | October 15, 2017 –My last week’s column, ‘IPOB is an insurgency, not a terrorist organization’, elicited a remarkable number of comments – kudos and criticisms as one would expect when one throws one’s hat onto the public space.
