The Ominous Silence of Fulani Herdsmen – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | January 27, 2019 – There are inherent conflicts between sedentary farmers and itinerant herdsmen because of their competing needs for water and ever diminishing arable land and pastures. With population growth and increasing urbanization steadily encroaching on available land, the competition for land between them continually intensifies; increasing the […]

Does IPOB Really Want Biafra? – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | January 17, 2019 –  At the pool of Bethesda, Jesus saw a man that had been sick for thirty eight years, and asked him, “Do you want to be made whole”? It was a question that seemed irrelevant and insensitivity. But then, some are sick but do not […]

Are the Igbos Really Marginalized? – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma  | Lagos, Nigeria | December 19, 2018 –  One Nigeria is not a homogenizing vat where different cultures blend into one. Consequently, although I am an avowed proponent of one Nigeria, I am exceedingly conscious that I cannot be a true Nigerian without first being a consummate Igbo. So, as I brood […]

Atiku: the Original & Genuine Font of Change – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | December 10, 2018 –  It was Atiku Abubakar, as the presidential candidate of Action Congress (AC), that originally wielded the broom, as a symbol of change.

Nigeria is Not Breaking Up -By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | November 22, 2018 –  Despite our relentless, vociferous denunciation of Nigeria and her woes, most Nigerians are committed to Nigeria, and her continued unity. As such, any group of Nigerians seeking to secede from Nigeria will invariably incur the wrath of the majority of Nigerians. And, as in […]

Ndi Igbo must support Peter Obi – By Tochukwu Ezunkanma

By Tochukwu Ezunkanma | Lagos, Nigeria | November 9, 2018 –  It is most exhilarating that as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries ended, the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, chose Peter Obi as his running mate.

Nigeria Needs a Leader, Not a Saint – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | November 2, 2018 – Prior to the 2015 presidential election, a lady on a radio program, summed up the frustration of many Nigerians with the Goodluck Jonathan administration when she said, “even if Buhari presents a NEPA bill as his certificate, I will still vote for him”. In our […]

A Fallacious Christian Doctrine – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | October 8, 2018 – I am a preacher without a pulpit. As such, I hardly have the opportunity to preach in a church. On the very few occasions that I was opportune to preach to a congregation, I did not preach prosperity because Prosperity Doctrine is self-serving convolution of the […]

The Perils of an Unsavory Cocktail – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | August 20, 2018 –  In one of those instances of fuel scarcity in Lagos State, I drove to a fuel station, and, like the other motorists, parked my car in the line for petrol. In a more sane society, motorists will sit in their cars, and inch their […]

President Macron: a Validation of Fela’s Legacy – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | July 20, 2018-  It seemed inconceivable that the President of France will visit the citadel of Afro Beat iconoclasm and activism, the New Afrikan Shrine. After all, the Shrine is a tin-pan, a boisterous, corybantic spot, frequented by bohemians and oddballs. What then was the president of one […]
