Crystal Ball Gazing

“In the real estate realm, the proverbial ‘other shoe’ hasn’t dropped yet, but certainly is dangling - and that’s commercial real estate. As homeowners writhe in agony and stop spending, retailers will go out of business, businesses of all stripes will suffer and commercial real estate will implode. The leverage left over from just the private equity foray into commercial real estate in the… Continue

Nigeria's Constitution: Immunity Clause - To Remove or Not to Remove

It is perhaps expedient for me to begin this article by acknowledging that I am also contributing to a debate which has been raging for a long time, and to which thousands of Nigerians all over the world have contributed their own opinions. While I do not want to appear repetitive, it is instructive to note that I will definitely not have the last word on this matter, for as long as the debate continues to rage. Hence I am not daunted to contribute to it, because my little voice will add more… Continue

Dear Reader, before you think or say “Oh my God, not another essay about Nigerian corruption from this guy”, please bear with me. First, the issue of corruption in my country has been a passion with me since childhood. Secondly, this is not another article about the consequences of corruption in Nigeria, but to narrate some personal political experiences. So please forgive me.

When I consented to coordinate the plans for the… Continue

An African Slave-Eye View of the Bloodsucking Meltdown

Some Thoughts On Affordable and Social Housing in Nigeria

One of the continuing challenges posed by unprecedented urbanization in developing countries, including Nigeria, is the provision of adequate and affordable housing. Over the last three decades, Nigeria, like several developing countries, has emphasised public housing schemes, but with little success (Ogu and Ogbuozobe, 2001)

According to the 2006 Census, (please note that this particular population census efforts are very challenging due to several social cultural problems) Nigeria… Continue

Perspectives On Nigeria’s Anti-Corruption War

"What is truth?" Pilate asked. As for Pilate, he sought no answer from Jesus for his question. Instead, he washed the responsibility from his hands (Matt. 27:24) and walked away from the truth. In Mel Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ, Pilate's wife answers her husband: "If you will not hear the truth, no one can tell you."

Truth, when trying to define it, extends from honesty, reality, good faith, and sincerity in general, to… Continue

I have just returned from Nigeria, which in itself is not news to anybody, and I also visited our capital city, Abuja. Abuja is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in sub-Saharan Africa. If we don’t want to go that far, then it is the only beautiful city in Nigeria. It has got much about everything that a modern city should have – imposing beautiful public and government buildings; private abodes with exquisite out-of-this-world architecture (most of these are actually castles or villas,… Continue

Novakane is currently #75 on the R & B/ Hip Hop Charts & Shawty Said has received over 10,000 bds spins

Real and ruthless is the tune of STP Music Group’s newest remedy Novakane. While most newcomers attempt to pull off their "one big hit" by matching it with a dance move, Novakane represents for the true hip-hop fans who still respect raw expression without the games and gimmicks.
