SPEAK OUT! (4)

Letters to the Editor

Preamble

If there is a critical discourse on the front burner currently in Nigeria, it is on unrelenting insecurity – pervasive kidnap for ransom and extortion, overwhelming banditry, resilient and resurging Boko Haram attacks on soft/hard targets, seeming helplessness of Nigerian security agencies, especially the military and deafening calls for the Service chiefs to voluntarily, honorably throw in the towel or be sacked. The secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha says ‘’you don’t just wake up and sack people like that, there are processes and I believe that, at the ‘opportune’ time, those processes will be followed. This suggests that the service chiefs who have served their tenures may not be replaced anytime soon. The aforesaid statement credited to the SGF and an Op-ed on Africa Briefing by a professional colleague – Mr. David Otto titled, ‘’Changing Nigeria’s military leadership at the height of Boko Haram/ISWAP attacks is a tactical suicide’’. Nigerians are being slaughtered, kidnapped in their numbers every day. Someone please tell the commander-in-chief that the ‘opportune’ time is now. There's a fierce urgency to be decisive now!

Terror for Nothing and Bombs for Free

Written by

Terrorism is generally defined as the deliberate use of violence against non-combatants for political reasons. Examples of organizations that have been accused of terrorism include Al-Qaeda, the Irish Republican Army, Boko Haram, Hamas, Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, and Al-Shabab, among others. Some groups have rejected the view that they are terrorist organizations. Palestinian organizations deemed terrorists in particular argue that since all adult Israelis receive military training and are able to use weapons, there are no real adult non-combatants in Israel. Therefore, they reason, all Israeli adults are legitimate targets for bombings or shootings.

1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

Free, fair and peaceful election are requisites of a democratic society through which citizens cast their votes to usher in a particular political party or politicians of their choice based on the convictions of the electorate. This ideal situation is far-fetched in many evolving democracies such as Nigeria where pre- and post-election violence stifles the very cornerstone of democracy: freedom of choice, civic participation, accountability, rule of law and trust in state officials and institutions.

Our Aims

  • To expose all levels of corruption in Nigeria, especially official corruption and by so doing ensure probity and accountability in every sphere of the Nigerian life.
  • To within the body politic stir up the spirit of nationalism amongst Nigerians aimed at pushing back the tides of ethnic chauvinism, tribal jingoism, religious bigotry, oligarchism, cronyism and nepotism.
