A disregarded anti-corruption box in NigeriaViewing corruption through the prism of the oppressed and the looted in Africa in general and Nigeria, in particular, is an interesting exercise. Growing up in the city of Enugu in Nigeria, I often wondered why my father would laugh, smile and/ or get visibly angry while perusing the content of news materials.

Nigerian Secondary School StudentsWhen I read about the position of the body responsible for organizing entrance examinations into Nigerian Universities and Polytechnic (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB))'s new cut off mark for entrance into Nigerian institutions of higher learning, I was perplexed a great deal.

A young Nigerian being prosecuted by Nigerian authorities for an online scamThere has been an upsurge in the number of Nigerian youths aspiring too hard to become successful through the means of partaking in criminal activities. All over the world, headlines have read so many unimaginable things that have the name Nigeria as its main subject.

Some term these incidents as xenophobia, while others believe that it is all as a result of some criminal elements in the communities where these disturbances are taking place, that we have the perpetration of these illegal and evil acts.

BokoHaramLeader-YusufIt is indeed very absurd for one to make the assertion that Boko Haram should be viewed as the victim in the strife and mayhem currently engulfing the North East of Nigeria. It is even more perplexing for one to entirely insinuate that President Goodluck Jonathan should be held responsible for the resultant outcomes of the aforementioned.

Dr.-Obiageli-Ezekwesili-and-Dr.-Ngozi-Okonjo-Iweala01Twitter has been agog since “Madame due process” Mrs Oby Ezekwesili lent her voice to the current Brouhaha surrounding the article credited to the former Central Bank Governor of Nigeria Mr. Charles. Soludo. This was necessitated by the counter utterances made by the Nigerian Minister of Finance Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,.
