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…
Democracy in Nigeria @ ten although not a complete failure is still not out of the ICU-Intensive Care Unit. All the major and critical indicators of political transitions to a true democracy are still missing in the political landscape of Nigeria. Nigeria is like a sick child that has the attention and care of a specialist doctor but continuously and stubbornly refuses to take the prescribed medications that will see her out of the intensive care unit. It is disheartening that Nigeria with so much capital and human resources knows the right things to do but for some personal and…
Ask the average man or woman on the streets of Nigeria of what benefit is Democracy to him or her ten years later, when men and women who have given their best 30 to 50 years of the service to their Fatherland are allowed to die waiting for their retirement benefits such as their basic monthly pension entitlements. Retirees in their seventies and older who in more civilized societies are accorded respect and dignity they deserve especially as senior citizens through the state provision of free or highly subsidized health care, food, shelter, and transportation, while their counterparts in Nigeria…
The progress of the enormous debts which at present oppress, and will in the long-run probably ruin all the great nations ... -Adam Smith A linguistics sociologist once defined a  as something one can smell, touch and feel. African foreign debt is an enormous disaster; its ugly consequences litter everywhere even along the roadsides. Yes, a great disaster indeed! You can smell it, touch it and feel it in Africa’s heartland. Africa received $540 billion loans between 1970-2002, she paid back $550 billion (i.e. principal with interest inclusive) and she still owned $295 billion as at the end of 2002.…
In this continent, the four horsemen of the apocalypse - conquest, conflict, famine and death are no mere visitors. They have taken up residence. -Martin Wolf (Financial Times)In view of mismanagement of Africa’s resources and funds; even the looting of her treasury by some of her leaders, it can be said thereof, that corruption has attained an alarming proportion in the continent. In fact, it has eroded the system. It may therefore, sound incredible and laughable when one suggests that time has come for a cancellation or rather a major debt relief to Africa’s enormous foreign debt.The cost of the…
From the fifteenth century to the present day, there have been ideological debates about Africa and her relationship with the rest of the world. Western pseudo- geneticist and evolutionist questioned the humanity of the African and suggested her existence on earth as just a mere savage. When that theory was disproved, the debate shifted to the inability of the African to govern herself and whether she possessed the skills and the intellect necessary to control her environment and society. All these challenges to the credibility of the African were made with disregard for history and Africa's contribution to mankind.The debate…
“If you have no confidence in self you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence you have won even before you have started.” – Marcus Garvey   There is a psychological disorder known as Stockholm syndrome, this occurs when a victim shows loyalty to a powerful abuser regardless of the danger this can pose to Its well-being. This is common among victims of domestic violence, kidnapped victims and abused children. The psychological ramification of slavery and colonization on the Africans is the single biggest hindrance to development on the continent. Theories, policies, and plans that have been…
For years proponents of globalization and free market economy labeled those who desire to include social justice, wealth distribution, fairness, and equity within economic framework as either socialist or communist. Most neo-liberal economic thinkers considered themselves the foremost custodians of capitalism and as the visionary thinkers of the modern age. The modus operandus in the economy, they claimed must be market based and must be the waves of the future; if it’s not working for you then something must be wrong with you. We know from history that markets have always existed since the beginning of time. The fundamental difference…
Importing ideas from one country to another without properly examining the social factors of the country will only lead to failure. Micro finance banks have become the rave in developing countries to reduce poverty due to the success of the nobel laureate Yunus Mohammed in impacting the lives of rural women in Bangladesh. His success has become a model being duplicated all over the world. In my recent trip for to Nigeria I was pleasantly surprised to see two micro finance banks in my village in Zonkwa in the heart of Nigeria. Curiosity led me into one of the banks…
