CBN Act And Oppresive Faliure of Monetary Strategy

News Introduction: 
Indeed, the tenure of the CBN Governors has nothing to do with success in maintaining industrially and economically stable rates of inflation, e.g. One to three per cent as in focused and successful economies or indeed in bringing down cost of funds to industrially friendly levels such as five to seven per cent across the board (not selective bailouts which only exacerbate excess liquidity and the collateral of high inflation and interest rates with an embattled naira in tow)! ---By Henry Boyo

The public’s usual refrain to rising prices is that “manufacturers/suppliers/farmers have increased prices of their respective goods and services;” the supplier is evidently the villain in public consciousness; it would indeed require the patience of Job to convince most Nigerians that such a condemnation was misplaced and it may even be more difficult to also put the blame for high cost of funds at the doorstep of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Consequently, it would be unbelievable to even suggest that the CBN is in fact the “devil in our economic workshop”.

Tambuwal’s Political Rascality And The Rest Of Us

When forces that worked for the enthronement of Aminu Tambuwal were at work, they simply forgot that those who live by the sword die by the sword.  When the back stabbing was on, it was, for them, not reasonable to think as persons of integrity. When it was acceptable to deprive Mulikat Akande the opportunity to be Speaker to represent the political interest of the South-West in the delicate political balancing in the country, the All Progressives Congress, APC, elements from the geo-political zone were comfortable selling their political birthright for a pot of stew.

Hypocrisy of Opposition Politicians

News Introduction: 
Without ignoring irony as a characteristic value of a mature literary work- the maintenance of desperate perspectives- I wish to regard it here as also a mode of interconnection, as illuminating discrepancies. -...By Desmond Orjiako

Without ignoring irony as a characteristic value of a mature literary work- the maintenance of desperate perspectives- I wish to regard it here as also a mode of interconnection, as illuminating discrepancies. Awareness of discrepancy means awareness of at least the two elements required to create a discrepancy. In a non-ironic work suck nexus would be lacking, and the texture would be correspondingly thinner. The ironic connection may be between elements close or distant; it may be completed in actionable or verbal terms; and it may have different temporal aspects.

A recently published foresight study on Africa focuses on the potential role of knowledge and innovation as key to Africa’s future. The study conducted by a global network of predominantly African researchers under the aegis of the Open African Innovation Research, Open AIR makes a link between the continent’s economic prosperity and its political stability. The research points emphatically at one of the defining features of Africa -its burst of untapped youthful energy as the world’s youngest continent. 

How Nigerians Embolden Insurgents

The unguarded statements by some prominent Nigerians about the prowess of the Boko Haram insurgents over the Nigerian Army and protests by various groups against the Federal Government to bring back the abducted Chibok girls embolden the Boko Haram sect. This should be discontinued. In February this year, the Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shetima said, “...But honestly Boko Haram are better armed and are better motivated than our own troops”. 

Ebola, CAF and Nigeria

It is no longer news that the deadly Ebola virus is plaguing West Africa.  With several reports of Ebola infection in the West African sub-region, countries such as Mali, Gambia, Ghana and Sierra Leone are currently experiencing the most demanding outbreak since the disease was first discovered 38 years ago. The United States and a few European nations are currently trying to contain the plague, which was imported into their land via West Africa. Nigeria has had her own share of trouble with the disease, no thanks to the escapade of late American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer.

Acting Together Against Poverty in Africa

It is in view of the harsh reality of the havoc that poverty, if allowed to blossom, could unleash on the world that poverty eradication remains one of the essential aspects of the Millennium Development Goals. It is, indeed, out of the need to provide a platform through which a global strategy could be harnessed to deal with poverty that the United Nations in 1993 set aside October 17 every year as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

The Battle Nigerian Army Needs to Wim

News Introduction: 
The Nigerian Army seems fixated with killing Abubakar Shekau, the equally self-obsessed psychopath who not only fancies himself a reincarnate of Osama bin Laden but also rides on the wave of moral panic ISIS is generating all over the place... -By Abimbola Adelakun

The Nigerian Army seems fixated with killing Abubakar Shekau, the equally self-obsessed psychopath who not only fancies himself a reincarnate of Osama bin Laden but also rides on the wave of moral panic ISIS is generating all over the place. He is the Army’s first obsession.
Their second obsession concerns the unwitting denigration of their own rank-and-file. Third is a consequence of the first two, turning the agency into an embarrassing joke both locally and internationally.

The death of Brigadier General Benjamin Adekunle provides a stark contrast between the great potential of the past and the bleak future of the present. His death provides a timeline that shows two pictures: that Nigeria is not progressing due to its inability to preserve and replicate patriotism and that its life is ebbing away with every death of past heroes announced.

Ebola And Concerns Over Schools’ Re-Open

Before now, fewer Nigerians heard of the Ebola virus, let alone what it represented. Those who have heard of it, probably, did so through occasional media reports which were often considered trivial. All this was, however, to radically change. No thanks to an ill-fated flight from Liberia that had on board a Liberian –American, Patrick Sawyer. With Calabar as his actual destination, Sawyer, however, had to make a stop- over in Lagos when he suddenly developed what was initially thought to be fever. Further diagnosis eventually revealed that Sawyer had contracted the dreaded Ebola virus.
