Fellow Nigerians, the roof is on fire. And the owners of the house should not sleep and snore lest they get badly burnt. Please, let no one treat or dismiss this Biafra controversy as humbug because it is very serious and has the potential of spiralling out of control and snowballing into an unprecedented conflagration of unquenchable propensities. War has never been a tea party. I was about seven years ... Read More »

A Third Party Memo to President Buhari

Your Excellency, it’s been months since I wrote my desperate memo to you. I wish to thank you once more for reacting promptly and swiftly at that time and for giving me the honour and privilege of meeting you in your office. I remember presenting you a special compilation of my articles, especially the many admonitions to your immediate predecessor, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. After handing over the book to ...

#Pendulum: Why Journalists Must Love Themselves – Dele Momodu

Fellow Nigerians, one of my favourite jokes often credited to Chief Moshood Abiola is the one in which he says: “The Holy Bible tells us to love our neighbours as ourselves, it didn’t say more than ourselves!” Nothing could be truer. The thesis I am about to propound is that journalists should begin to love and celebrate themselves more. We do not seem to appreciate the power that God has ... Read More »

On The Trail of Madame Diezani – The Truth, The Lies And The Assumptions

Fellow Nigerians, let me tell you about my James Bond stunts in this season of the sensational SPECTRE movie. Yes. The news of the arrest of former strong woman of Nigeria’s Petroleum Ministry, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke in London had hit the airwaves like thunderbolt. No member of President Goodluck Jonathan’s government held the nation spellbound like Madame Diezani. Controversy dogged her every step just as she spawned loads of salacious ... Read More »


“To stay cheerful when involved in a gloomy and exceedingly responsible business is no inconsiderable art: yet what could be more necessary than cheerfulness? Nothing succeeds in which high spirits play no part…” – Friedrich Nietzsche, TWILIGHT OF THE IDOLS/THE ANTI-CHRIST Fellow Nigerians, it is no longer news that I was born and bred in the ancient town of Ile-Ife, the spiritual home of the Yoruba people of South West ...

Fellow Nigerians, if you did not watch the much-anticipated and long-delayed Ministerial screening of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, last Thursday, October 22, 2015, at the Senate Chambers of Nigeria’s National Assembly, you definitely missed a high drama. There was no way I would have missed the live broadcast of that historic event. Thanks to technology, my wife and I stayed glued to Channels TV transmitting all the way to ... Read More »

#Pendulum: WHO SAYS BUHARI IS NOT SMART – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, please take this piece as a rhetorical question that requires no answer. I’ve always said that an average Nigerian is an expert in conspiracy theories and there is never a limit or end to the thesis we conjure from time to time. Please, flash back to just some months ago, at the peak of the PDP gragra, General Muhammadu Buhari was completely ruled out of the race for ... Read More »

#pendulum: THE ABUJA MINISTERIAL BLUES – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, the story you are about to read is the stuff of fiction. Or better put, it is like a play or movie. One title that readily comes to mind is that beautiful stage-play, ‘A Play of Giants’, by foremost playwright, Wole Soyinka. It is an incredible tale of power in Africa’s biggest nation, Nigeria. Let me start it like this. I departed Ghana for Dubai the very day ... Read More »


Fellow Africans, it is good to be great. It is great to be accomplished. Ambassador Chief Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez combined both and much more. If there were doubts about the wonderfulness of God in the life of Ambassador Fernandez before now, they were gloriously removed yesterday at the one-of-a-kind funeral service which was powerfully and meticulously planned by his widow, Mrs Halima Fernandez, and members of their extensive and extended ...

Fellow Africans, these are interesting times for our Continent. Believe me, great things are beginning to happen. I’m sure you’re wondering about the basis for my boundless optimism on this page today. I will elucidate. For a very long time, Africa’s biggest nation, Nigeria, was seen as a nuisance and treated by and large like a pariah. It was believed that we didn’t set good examples for the smaller countries ...
