Reading Nigeria news online on

Posted in: , , ,

It is no secret that Nigeria undergoes the fast process of development. Today this country is no longer on the outskirts of the world. In fact, it has become one of the largest newsmakers in Africa. Its economy has outgrown the one of South Africa and it is becoming one of the key affluent players in this region.

This is one reason why I have decided to write about the and the importance of finding the latest Nigerian news on Naij. The other reason is that Nigeria is the country I love the best and presently living miles and miles away from it I still daily look up the latest Nigerian news online.

Thousands Sign Petition Against US Based Doctor Who Champions Igbo Massacre In Lagos

Posted in: ,

Before the governorship elections earlier this month, the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, made some remarks to visiting Igbo leaders in Lagos, threatening the lives of Igbos if they did not vote according to his wishes. This led to an online tribal storm as Yorubas and Igbos squared off against each other.

At that time, a Texas based cardiologist, Adeniran Abraham Ariyo, shared Oba Akiolu's post with accompanying comments that seemed to promote the slaughter of Igbo people in Lagos, like the xenophobic attacks currently going on in South Africa. He also added that they would get the same treatment in Abuja because of how they felt their business success should lead to political influence.

Eze Ndigbo Deserves Same Blame As Oba Akiolu - A Tale of Two Nonsense Leaders [Audio]

Posted in: ,

It is amazing how debased some Nigerians are, using archaic customs and superstitions to cloak incipient hatred and tribalism. ThisDay had earlier today reported that the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu received a political delegation of Igbo lead­ers in Lagos State, and at the event, he warned them to vote the APC governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Am­bode, as the next governor of the state. To buttress his point, he called on his traditional powers over the Lagos Lagoon to drown his opponents.

While some denied the reports, Oba Akiolu himself said he was only relating a myth about the Lagoon. Now with the release of an audio of the event, it is clear to all that the Oba threatened genocide on Igbos in Lagos if they voted against his political choices. The Oba indeed said the Igbos will all die inside the Lagos Lagoon as his ancestors had proclaimed, and denigrated Igbo centers of commerce - Onitsha and Aba - also in the process.

#NigeriaDecides - Initial 2015 Presidential Election Results Are Probably Fake

Posted in: , , ,

Using the #NigeriaDecides hashtag for wider reach, the official INEC Nigeria Twitter account has warned that no announcements for the 2015 Presidential Election Results be made by any third parties. However, their threat has not stopped some sites from releasing unverified and probably cooked up and fake results for the elections which just held yesterday.

While it is very likely that most results from polling stations have been counted, I find it stretching credulity that LG level and State level results could have been collated overnight. It is probably advisable for all to wait till INEC to release final results in 48 hrs as they promised. APC may find themselves to be rejoicing too soon if they go by these results below...

10 Very Important Safety Tips For The Upcoming Nigerian Elections

Posted in: , ,

I saw this on Facebook, and knowing how various Nigerian media outlets have been hinting at insecurity around the forthcoming elections, I decided to share it here. Please my people in Nigeria, try to vote, but stay safe. These tips will help those who are not sure what to do. Take care.

1.  Food
Stock up on food and water (at least 1 week’s supply) in case Markets and stores aren’t open or you can’t go out. Prioritise non-perishable food like those stored in cans over fresh food that takes time to cook and requires freezing (in case the power in your area is cut off). Don’t forget about cooking Gas! Or Kerosene.

My Covenant With Nigerians - Buhari

Posted in: , , ,

Dear Compatriots,

In the past few months that I have traveled round this country on campaigns, I have experienced the sheer beauty of our diversity. From Port Harcourt to Kano, from Abeokuta to Gusau, I experienced first-hand the daily sufferings and struggles of our people. I also experienced the overwhelming desire of our people for change.

When I arrived in Port Harcourt on the 5th of January to start my campaigns, I was met by our teeming supporters, who stayed till late in the evening to welcome us. Among them were many young men and women, who in the few minutes that I shared with them at the airport, made me to reflect on what kind of future awaits them in our country.

With one being Christian and the wife of a pastor, and the other married to a devout Muslim and also one herself, maybe these two women can show Nigerians how the two religions can cohabit peacefully and equally. Yesterday, a photo of the duo buying suya at a local motor park also swept the imagination of social media as it went viral. See below...
