Fellow Nigerians, it is another sad story. Barely five weeks after we lost our dear beloved royal elephant, The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II, another monumental tragedy occurred. The Lion of the diplomatic fraternity has fallen. He is no other than the African icon, Ambassador Chief Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez. It is not that he was too young to die but Chief had traversed this world so much ... Read More »

#Pendulum: TIME TO TEAR DOWN THESE WALLS – @DeleMomodu

“And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men it will come to nothing. But if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest you even be found to fight against God.” – Acts of The Apostles 5: 38-39 Fellow Nigerians, let me make a quick confession. Our dear country has been very ... Read More »

#Pendulum: BACK TO OUR ROOTS – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, I had cause to visit Yakooyo, a very small town in the State of Osun days ago. I had not been here I’m sure in over two decades. As tiny as Yakooyo is, this rural settlement boasts of one of the most famous military icons in Nigeria, Lt. General Alani Ipoola Akinrinade. For those who may be too young to remember this great veteran of many exploits, let ... Read More »

#Pendulum: GOOD BYE, OUR DEAR KABIYESI – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, let me confess that my trip to the ancient city of Ife last Thursday was a most harrowing experience. As a matter of fact, the drive itself was very smooth devoid of the usual hurly-burly on that notorious Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. We set forth on our journey around noon not knowing what to expect along the way. Road travel in Nigeria has defied common logic. You require methods to ... Read More »

#Pendulum: As The Ooni Retires To The Penthouse (Part 2) – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, I’m sorry to say that you already missed a lot of hot gist about The Ooni of Ife Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II, if you did not read my column last week. That is the absolute truth. You may have to search for it in order to fully understand and appreciate my drift this week. The saga you are about to read is such an amazing story and ... Read More »

#Pendulum: As the Ooni Retires to the Penthouse – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, the controversy surrounding the health status of The Ooni of Ife would have been unnecessary if many of us had understood or respected the Ife tradition. Ile-Ife being the cradle of civilisation is steeped in endless myths and the ancient town parades countless pantheons for about 401 deities who are worshipped all year round. Ile-Ife and Benin City cherish their culture and never joke with tradition. They revere ... Read More »

#Pendulum: Now That Baba is Back Home – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, I hope you followed our President’s visit to America, their America, early this week. Love them or loathe them, the Americans are in a class of their own. Most of those who complain the most about the supposed verbosity and ruthlessness of the Americans always dream of visiting what has been aptly tagged God’s own country. The reason is simple. America has branded and positioned itself as the ... Read More »

#Pendulum: An Afternoon with President Buhari – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, let me confess that in over 30 years of writing no President has ever reacted directly or positively to my constant admonitions, lamentations or commendations. Rather, most of the time, their aides, cronies and acolytes used to fire darts and barbs at us from every direction. We were called unprintable names that our parents did not give us and by now we are so used to being abused ... Read More »

#Pendulum: BEFORE APC FALLS APART – @DeleMomodu

Fellow Nigerians, it is not a hidden fact that I’ve been a great admirer and ubiquitous supporter of the current governing Party in Nigeria, the ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC), from its inception though I belong bodily and spiritually elsewhere in the National Conscience Party. My love for APC was not because I expected its members to be extra-terrestrial beings without foibles and idiosyncrasies but due to the fact that I ... Read More »
