Interpreters Of Maladies By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Two truths are indispensable to leaders. First, they will be criticized. Second, criticism always changes the leader. Unhappy people tend to attack the point person. As a leader, how do you respond to criticisms? When the storms come – and they will – do you let fear, anger, and distrust take better part of you?

We all know that politicians are hypersensitive to criticisms. Fighting back against his critics, President Goodluck Jonathan once said that he was the most criticized president in the world. If the president had been adequately briefed on events around the world by his coterie of media aides, he would count himself lucky to be a president in Nigeria.

Who Exactly Is A Nationalist? By Olugu Olugu Orji

Nationalist: 1. A person who wants their country to become independent. 2. A person who has a great love for and pride for their country… (Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, 7th Edition). Growing up as a child post-Independence in 60s, I was conversant with the nationalists who fall in the first category that laboured to grab freedom from Great Britain: Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello and Anthony Enahoro amongst a host of illustrious Nigerians. Most of them have since passed away but their place in Nigeria’s convoluted annals is assured. I do not have the remotest intention of rousing them from their well-deserved rest.

It is those who fall in the second definition that I am concerned with. These are the ones who are supposed to love their nation fervently, fiercely, maybe even fanatically. So consuming should their love be that they do not have second thoughts engaging their consummate skills for the betterment of their nation and her citizens. They are willing and able to spend and be spent, way beyond the demands of law and duty to beautify their nation.

Olisa Metuh’s Comment On Nyanya Blast: A Sample Of Stupidity By Amene Terheme

In the early hours of Monday 04/14/2014, a terrible blast rocked the ever busy Nyanya Park claiming not less than 50 lives.

The PDP in its official reaction by their spokesman, Olisah Metuh blamed the opposition. Keep in mind that so far no security agency has made public any report of the investigation of the blast. This piece of information is important because if Metuh who has no official link to and is holding no office with any of the security agencies will know the perpetrators of a blast even before those saddled, constitutionally, with the responsibility to fish out those behind the crime start work, two things may be possible:

(1) He is behind it himself.

War Against Terror: It Is Time For Mass Action

By Bamidele Aturu

The dastardly bombing and murder of Nigerians in the early hours of today by terrorists has proved conclusively that the security agencies have no idea as to how to confront terrorism. In spite of repeated assurances from government and the top hierarchy of the security agencies it is dawning by the day that we are the most insecure people on earth.

While the gruesome murder of people who have no hand in the current political and economic woes of this country must be condemned unreservedly, and we cannot have words harsh enough for the cowardly killing of defenceless persons, the truth remains that governments at all levels must be held squarely responsible for the state of penury and insecurity in Nigeria.
