ASUU is Coming to Equity with Unclean Hands – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | October 16, 2022 – The strike by the Academic Staff of University Union (ASUU) is taking a crushing toll on Nigeria. Basically, ASUU has legitimate grievance. It is insisting that the federal government must uphold its earlier agreements with ASUU before ASUU members can return to work. The earlier […]

At 62, is Nigeria accursed or doomed? – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | October 16, 2022 – On October 1st 2022, Nigeria celebrated her independence anniversary. The yearly civic ritual was performed in the usual patriotic pomp, pageantry and triumphalism. However, frustrated by the state of the country, the anarchy, squalor and retrogression that are the cachets of Nigeria, some Nigerians felt […]

What is Wrong with Africans? – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | September 24, 2022 – In his Philosophy of History, the 19th Century German philosopher, Friedrich Hegel, wrote so disparagingly about Africans, “The African exhibits the natural man in his wild and untamed state; there is nothing harmonious with humanity to be found in his character”.

Peter Obi: An Electoral Choice Made Easier – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | August 17, 2022 –  The All Peoples Congress (APC) presidential primaries was a parade of the colorful and flamboyant, bumptious and presumptuous, arrogant and megalomaniac, and diffident and self-effacing. I was very impressed by Yemi Osibanjo, our scholarly, urbane and deftly discerning vice president. I was taken by his […]

Ndigbo Need a Consensus – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | June 21, 2022 – Speaking with one voice breeds autocracy, panders to charlatans and quacks, and reinforces the pretensions of an elite few. It stifles independent thought, free speech, innovation, reforms and progress. In addition, history has instructed us on the perils of speaking with one voice: it nudges […]

The Answer is in Secularism – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | May 31, 2022 –  Ordinarily, religion should stabilize the functioning of the social machinery and promote on earth that primary law in heaven, order, by teaching us love, patience, toleration, respect for others, etc. Lamentably, it has brought humanity so much hate, violence and disruption of the social order. […]

Nigeria: the Problem is More of Elitism – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | May 19, 2022 – The problems of Nigeria are more of the consequences of elite collusion in repression of the masses than tribal and religious schisms. Irrespective of their tribes and religious persuasions, the Nigerian elite live in their cocoons of privileges, power and wealth, and have no qualms […]

Who is Afraid of an Igbo president? – By Tochukwu Ezukanma

By Tochukwu Ezukanma | Lagos, Nigeria | March 28, 2022 – Without any legitimate grievance, but desperate to justify the need for the Igbo to secede from Nigeria, neo-Biafran propagandists have a penchant for disgusting falsehood.
