When the sun rises on this hot and humid marshland, the acrid smell of petroleum is thick in the air. Farmers plod though the thick swamps contaminated with hydrocarbons as part of their daily ritual of tending to their fields. This is not rural Louisiana but a half a world away in the Oruma, Goi, and Ikot Ada Udo communities of the Niger River Delta. As similar as these events may seem to the casual observer, the differences are quite stark. The Deep Horizon Spill has captivated the world’s attention for the past few months; there has been little if…
Nuclear energy and nuclear technology can be of great aid to Nigeria in her endeavor to supply steady, reliable and clean energy for her domestic electric consumption. Without doubt Nigeria at this stage of her industrial stage must do something about the paucity of electricity to power her industries and residential homes. Nuclear technology with its entire prospect has its challenges that must be appreciated and be given the requisite attention in order to avoid any catastrophe. Nigeria must do thorough feasibility study, and comprehend the convoluted technology, and implement the intricate precautionary measures and mechanisms required to operate a…
Analysis and commentary by Emeka Chiakwelu     This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have infused the total sum of N600 billion naira ($3.96 billion) into the Nigerian banking sector to recapitalize the banks that have been plagued with liquidity crisis and credit crunch caused by excessive lending, profligacy and corruption. The recent audits of the Nigerian banks by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have exposed the inefficiency of the banking sector. When the new governor of Central Bank came in he found out that some major banks were poorly managed and that corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of…
Economic perspective and analysis by Emeka Chiakwelu   International Monetary Fund (IMF) will substantially increase its Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) from its lower original reserve to 204 billion which is proportionate to $324 billion. In the last G-20 summit held in America, the members of this important group of the largest economies gave the IMF the green light for creation of significantly larger SDRs.SDR is a form of proxy or representative currency created by IMF. This "quasi currency" can be converted into four established and chosen currencies referred as "basket of currencies" - dollar, euro, pound and yen. Every member-nation…
A democratic process is a marathon race that takes a long time to be evaluated. It will be premature to postulate the failure of democracy in Nigeria for ten years is such a limited time to quantify the well being of democratic life in the country. In this journey there are pitfalls on the way but I am an eternal optimist and greatly bullish on democracy. The democratic system of government have served so many countries well and there will be no reason while Nigeria will be an exception. One thing must be made perfectly clear; democracy is about the…
Nigeria needs to completely overhaul its police institute with a comprehensive reform that will usher in a seasoned and improved trained police men and women. Nigeria‘s reform of the police will not be a piecemeal, where many issues affecting the force will be relegated to the background for a quick fix. A comprehensive solution will be a panacea to the end of the deficiency associated with policing in Nigeria . Nigeria cannot be a nation with a progressive economy without astute security apparatus. Capitalists and investors must perceive a sense of security in Nigeria . Security and peace will make…
The disaster that beset Haiti is colossal and the human suffering with destruction brought by earthquake is up to biblical proportion. The whole world is coming together to help Haiti, the poorest country in Northern Hemisphere, to safe lives and ameliorate human sufferings. Africa is not missing in the picture; many African countries including Nigeria, South Africa, Rwanda and others are offering assistance to Haiti but they should synchronize their effort. Nigerians are already part of the UN police mission in Haiti that are assiduously working to rescue people who are missing and trapped in the fallen building structures. The…
Polio has been identified as one of the most damaging diseases which can snatch away a child’s physical, mental and emotional stimulus to lead a normal, healthy and happy life. This is why; countries across the world have been working together closely to develop a strong Public Health Campaign for complete and total polio eradication since 1988. In most parts of the world, particularly the western nations, the devastating complication of polio is rarely seen today. Even when poliovirus infection occurs in these areas it is the least harmful strain of poliovirus. In addition, there is adequate vaccine to protect…
In order for a Nation to realize her dreams for greatness, there must be committed men and brave but fearless men who have vision and passion and above all must be very intelligent and great thinkers. Unfortunately Nigerian past  have lacked most of the critical attributes listed. We have possessed mediocrity in abundance and that is the main reason why Nigeria has remained stagnant in the comity of Nations or what I call arrested development. Lack of basic infrastructures, a comatose education system, and top heavy leadership selected with the only qualification of ethnic bias, pervasive corruption, thieves in high…
