Demagogues In Nigeria’s Political Space

They were voted to provide good and qualitative leadership; elected to bring the nation’s economy out of the wood and were chosen to bring democracy’s dividends to the people.  But, instead of providing the lavishly promised and highly expected conducive leadership, they visit the masses with cluelessness and Utopia.

Nigeria Youths: Celebrated Abroad, Despised At Home

It gladdens my heart seeing the youths of Nigeria occupy some top diplomatic positions in global bodies, while also calling the shots in development of affairs on the world stage. However, talented Nigerian youths are being celebrated abroad, it is disheartening that these same youths of ours helplessly relegated to the background in the scheme of political and socioeconomic affairs ...
