    With the continuous rise in civilization all over the world, one would think that human beings will put an end to a lot of archaic practices. Regrettably, this is not so. Africa has continued to disappoint in this aspect. Where other continents are looking to raise their economy and foster relationships with other countries, some Africans still uphold wicked and inhumane acts such as jungle justice. A case scenario is the recent brutal murder of Captain Maxwell Mahama, a soldier in Ghana, on...
  4. Child-Raising: The Unacceptable African Model

    There is a relationship between how we raise children in Africa and economic growth. We place unnecessary constraints on children in Africa, especially Nigeria, and raise them in an environment of fear and blind obedience in spite of personal beliefs. Most children are forced to pursue the passions of their parents and not their own, resulting in wasted talent since everyone wants to be a doctor, engineer or lawyer. They are forced to embrace their parents' ideologies instead of developing...

  9. Law Enforcement Dogs vs The Dog Sport

    I hear it all the time- “It’s a nice sport dog, but there is no way he could handle the streets”. And honestly there is some validity to it however not all of time. My beginning in this wonderful world of K9 was as a law enforcement K9 handler. We are the best right. We know more than anyone else right? At least that what we had been told by someone else who was already in our little secret world of law enforcement K9 training and handling. I’ve also heard people say that the “sport dog”...

    The return of President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) after a 50day medical vacation in the UK have doused the tension and speculations about his health status. Nonetheless, public comments signals that many thinks he is neither incapacitated nor medically fit. Being mortal, it is not anomalous for PMB to be ill, but the inaudibility of his communication makes many cast doubts on whether communicating with Nigerians is indeed important to the president. The thesauruses depicts inaudible as being...
  11. Response to The Guardian of U.K.

    My attention has been drawn to a report in the Guardian of the U.K. alleging that the former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan rebuffed efforts by the British military to rescue the kidnapped Chibok Girls sometime in 2014. Nothing could be further from the truth and to prove that this story from the Guardian is untrue, the international community will recall that when a Boko Haram affiliate kidnapped a Briton and an Italian, Chris McManus and Franco Lamolinara, fromManus and Franco...

In between 1983 and 2015 when he regained power to lead the country, he has served in various capacity among which is serving as the chairman of...
  13. Buhari For Second Term

    The state of Nigerian government under which we are today can be likened to that the Cuban government where Fidel Castro, after having spent about 40 years as the President of Cuba, handed over to his own younger brother, Abel Castro in the guise of administrative continuity. Until his death in 2016, he remained the material president of Cuba while his younger brother reigned in his stead. The present political interchange that we experience in Nigeria today might not be seen as a replica of...
  14. The Nigerian Dream

    Nigeria was supposed to be the giant of Africa and a mediator among another neighbouring country that will by virtue of her buoyancy determine who gets what across another developing country. If you ask me I’d say such a dream is far bigger than economic growth and development
