Bishop Kukah and whose Ox is gored? - ITREALMS

Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

I recall with fond nostalgia that while growing up, after torrential rains, we will gather outside in the community and play gleefully. One play I enjoyed so much at that time was pelting stones into bodies of water which would have gathered still looking for exit routes. The ripple effect of that stone landing in the water would form rings in that body of water. I was later to learn that the rings formed is known as water viscosity.

In recent times, it has come to note that when some personalities make public statements, it sends shockwaves throughout the world like the stone does in still water. These personalities unfortunately are helpless when they occupy positions of public trust. In Nigeria, this kind of personalities abound. The usual reaction to statements made by those in the aforementioned category is usually a dismissal with many viewed as mere political jobbers who are either playing scripts of their pay masters or even seeking cheap relevance. Some others on the other hand enjoy some level of notoriety as such even the slightest jokes about national issues from them are regarded as ‘German jokes’. 

Study notes on ‘state’ and ‘state failure’ - ITREALMS

Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

This piece is dedicated to two of the surviving members of the Old Guard of the Nigerian Left: Comrade Biodun Jeyifo (BJ) who turns 75 on January 5, 2021, and Comrade Bene Madunagu.
As this extraordinary year 2020 comes to a close, the Nigerian Left appears to be faced with a mocking challenge partly orchestrated by radical and Leftwing social media: “revolution or state failure.” It is a challenge also appearing to leap directly from the packed events of the year: Coronavirus pandemic, youth protest or #EndSars, deepening mass poverty and desperation, Boko Haram and kindred insurgencies, banditry, kidnapping and armed robbery, deepening class exploitation and state robbery, state delinquency, increasing resort to fascist approaches to governance, increasing separatist agitations, state violence and lawlessness, generalized insecurity and the emergence of state-inspired, state protected, but formally “non-state” fascist movements.
