The federal government of Nigeria has secured a court order to freeze the account of all those that have bank accounts in Nigeria with no associated BVN. You may recall that the federal government gave a directive two years ago urging all Nigerians to identify themselves with the newly instituted process called BVN. BVN means Bank Verification Number. The BVN is managed by VFS Global Services in partnership with Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS). VFS Global Services setup a number of satellite locations to reach as many Nigerians abroad as possible. With this new court order shown below, You…

ImeIme Umana:First-ever female president of Harvard Law Review A shining example is Ms. ImeIme Umana, a Nigerian descent, but born in the United States, beats other eleven candidates – mostly Whites off-course, to become the First-ever female president of Harvard Law Review – a position that former president Barak Obama once held while at Harvard Law School.  I ran into Ms. Umana at Harvard in 2013 during my leadership program at Harvard Kennedy School.  She is a brilliant mind.  With two other Nigerians, we talked passionately about Nigeria’s decadence and way forward.  Despite the immense brainpower and professional expertise that…

On December 5, 2015 I wrote a piece The Deathly Silence of Nigerians - Do Nigerian Lives Matter? I addressed the mass killing of Biafran demonstrators first in Port Harcourt and then in Onitsha Niger Bridge head. I lamented the silence of Nigerians especially my internet colleagues. Not one voice was raised. Even in Nigeria there was silence from the leaders of SS and SE and a feeble reaction by Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN); silence from the Human Rights groups except another not so forceful reaction from the Onitsha based Human Rights group. I truly missed the old Gani.Fawehinmi…

  Will Nigeria Survive Muhammadu Buhari’s Government? The 9-month span of Mr. Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency is not long enough to pass final judgements on his stewardship but long enough to predict the future of Nigeria. Nigerians should start thinking whether the president has the right temperament to govern a complex country like Nigeria; whether he understands convoluted relationships between the federal government and states, between the government and citizens, between dictatorships and democracies, etc. The country should consider if the president understands the differences in the last sentence; does he have the nuances necessary to maneuver though these intricate relationships;…

Nigeria’s Future, a Few Indecent Proposals. As implausible as it may seem, Nigerians of all ethnicity, of all political beliefs and of all education and life status agree that Nigeria is not working for them and want to change the existing situation. In light of this agreement I venture to make a few indecent proposals. It is possible that may be one would be acceptable to a large segment of our population to make the change happen. Indecent Proposal 1.By an act of the British Parliament, Nigeria became an independent country within the Commonwealth on October 1, 1960. Prior to…

President Buhari’s Dwindling Stature   Six months ago after Nigerian Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the results of the 2015 presidential election with General Muhammadu Buhari as the winner, the world stood still for a moment. Nigerians sang “hail Buhari” and religious people proclaimed GMB as God’s angel that would save Nigeria. His reputation was so high that nobody fathomed what could possibly bring him down to earth. Those who voted for him were sure that God had answered their prayers. Those who voted for his opponent Goodluck Ebele Jonathan had to hide in shame.   Six months after the…

  I am not a Biafran and neither am I igbo. I do however believe that it is the inalienable right of any human being or ethnic nationality to aspire to be free and to be able to determine their own destiny. The right of self-determination is enshrined in international law and it is guaranteed by every moral stricture known to man. It is a right that has been exercised successfully over and over again in world history and it has led to the creation of new nations which were carved out of older ones. The denial of that right…
