Improving The Prospects For Free, Fair And Credible Elections In Nigeria Through Constitutional Alteration. By Otive Igbuzor, PhD

It is through the exercise of franchise or the right to vote that citizens can perform this role. Unfortunately, from the history of elections in Nigeria from the colonial era till date, there are challenges for free, fair and credible elections and citizens are losing the right to vote or the vote counting towards the final electoral outcome Details

 

Study Notes on Nigeria’s Youth Revolt. By Edwin Madunagu

Suppose these minimum objectives have not been met, would the EndSARS protest be in vain? I asked my female compatriot. She responded: “Those objectives failing, then let it at least be that notice has been served regarding the masses’ capabilities and readiness to ensure that going forward cannot be business as usual.” Details

 

Nigeria: Situational Tribalists And A Naïve Populace. By Ugochukwu Ejinkeonye

The most painful thing is that while the hungry and haggard masses are out there fighting each other, the politicians whom they wrongly assume is their champion is behind closed doors negotiating a better deal for himself. Once he has been settled satisfactorily, he would come out and tell his people to halt the hostilities. He may let a few crumbs fall to them, that is, those who did not die during the conflicts.

Nigeria’s Struggle to a New Nation in the Age of Digitization: A Perspective on the #ENDSARS Protest. By Marwan Haruna, Ph.D.

Obviously since the return of democracy in 1999 to date, the self-evident truth that the security and welfare of Nigeria’s citizens is far from settled. Recent happenings across the country, are a manifestation of that and a consequence to the new world order; DIGTIZATION. The imperative then, for a change in governance that must conform to the current realities. Details

 

Hungry and Angry: Youth Can Only Be Temporarily Subdued or Suppressed. By Farouk Martins Aresa

When masses are fed up, it only takes the last straw to break the camel's back as we saw in Morocco where one unemployed graduate sparked revolt. Recovery becomes hard and long resulting in the rich eating one another as the poverty stricken cold hands reach into privileged class and grip those that refuse to listen to the voices of reasonable masses. It happened in Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan before it got to Libya (made worse by imperialist opportunists). Yet, greed for loot and power, blind Nigeria’s stubborn Vagabonds in Power. Details

 

Tribute to late Hassan Wayam (1945-2020). By Nura Jibo MRICS

One unfortunate incident that happened in Nigeria in the year 2015 was the election violence that made Hassan Wayam lost one of his heirs, Aliyu (Danladi) Hassan Wayam. Amidst military curfew and lockdown in Zaria, Hassan out of concern sent Danladi to see if the curfew was loosened so that he could buy them foodstuff and restock. The soldiers spotted Danladi out and shot him in the head. It was this pathetic scenario that made Hassan Wayam highly depressed and unforgiving to Nigeria’s Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s Government. The rest is history! Details

 

President Comes, Presidents Goes, Nation Remains. By Anthony Akinola

However, patriotic Nigerians must always seek to protect the sovereignty of their nation at all times. There would be those who would want to exploit a crisis situation to achieve unconnected objectives. The call for Buhari to resign may be unnecessary. The agitation for the breakup of Nigeria cannot be sustained on the platform of the current crisis, not least because police corruption, extortion and brutality, have been a national malaise. Of course, all religions have failed our nation in this. Details

 

#EndSARS: How We Came to the Sorry State. By Abachi Ungbo

Our leaders simply buried their heads in the sand. They turned deaf ears and cast blind eyes. They  carried on with blissful indifference as the dam was recording incremental rise. The alarm rang out stridently yet couldn’t awaken them to the disaster that was shaping up. The breaches were in plain sight. Finally, the dam gave way, releasing its content with fury and carrying everything along its path. Today, the land is pervaded with tears, sorrow and regret! Details

Who is the Nigerian Youth?

[GAMJI WRITER]

 

At first I was not exactly sure what to make out of the topic, do I believe in a new Nigeria, are the current crop of youth, I mean is this generation the real deal, what were the lessons of the recent near nation-wide protests, and the aftermath, have we treated the ringworm or we have just scratched the leprosy?

UN’s Call for Nigeria to Explore Political Solution to Insurgency and Banditry

 

[GAMJI WRITER]

 

The recent call by the United Nations for the federal government to combine dialogue with the deployment of force to combat insecurity in Nigeria made headlines. The UN was quoted as saying that Nigeria’s security crisis is complicated by a conflation of banditry and terrorism in the North-west, which makes a purely military solution unlikely to succeed. Details
