The hopeless state of Nigeria

Everything is going from bad to worse in Nigeria. Because the US dollar is so high, and we don’t export any other thing but oil, we are like an unemployed person that has no savings. Things get worse every day. The only thing we have for sure now is a thin sliver oof hope, nothing else. Our policy makers are just hoping that oil climbs back, that is their policy.

Nothing is certain anymore. If the second richest man in Nigeria can move from being a billionaire to being a millionaire within months, then what happens to the rest of us? What hope do we have?

They say we should go back to agriculture, that it requires little investment and crops can grow withing 3 months. But going back to agriculture is not safe, as herdsmen are still reported to be killing farmers-and cows eating up their crops. So, how will Nigeria recover? How will we diversify from oil when the very farmers that would have helped such are being killed in their farms? Continue reading “The hopeless state of Nigeria”

Obama gives Nigeria final snub as he visits Greece ‘because he has never been there’

Barrak Obama, the first black president of the United States has for the past 8 years of his ending presidency, refused to visit the most populous black country in the world. And while one thought that during the last days of his presidency, he would at least squeeze in Nigeria, even for a plane refuelling stop-over he has continued to slap Nigeria on the face, treating Nigeria (the giant of Africa) as if it doesn’t exist.

The latest slap came when his staff announced his final trip as president.  He will visit 3 countries, Germany, Peru and Greece. According to New York Times, originally, the trip to Peru was the only scheduled stop, but Mr. Obama added Greece, where he plans to land on Tuesday morning, because he has never been there and wanted to see the Parthenon, a Greek foreign attraction!

Breaking: Senate Suspends Grazing Reserves Bills

Zikist Movement, Christian Association of Nigeria, Ayo Fayose, Fani Kayode , Vanguard and other entities too numerous to mention will be happy to learn that the 3 Grazing Reserve bills in the Senate have been suspended by the Senate.

Deputy Senate Prrsident Ike Ekweremmadu and Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume moved for the suspension after ‘it was realized that the issue was not on the exclusive list of Nigeria’s Constitution, but rather on the concurrent list’, which means the Senate cannot just wake up one morning and make a law establishing grazing reserves.

Thanks to people like Ayo Fayose that really fought this. Continue reading “Breaking: Senate Suspends Grazing Reserves Bills”
