A thread.

The widely disseminated statement by Kaduna-based Muslim cleric Dr. Ahmed Gumi titled “War has never been a solution anywhere anytime” is too sweeping to be true.
He was referring to the Nigerian Army’s recently stepped-up campaign against bandits in Zamfara and other north-western states, which he says will not end banditry. He said only negotiation and a peaceful settlement with the bandit leaders will do.
For starters, it is not true that war has never resolved any issues. It may not be ideal but throughout human history, nothing resolves contentious issues quite as conclusively as victory on the battlefield.

I have closely followed the discussions regarding IPOB’s Sit-At-Home protest. Naturally, there are arguments in favor and against this order. The argument against this mode of protest adopted by IPOB is anchored primarily on the economic implication for the SE.
According to the proponents of this position, the Monday Sit-At-Homes, if sustained will be costing the SE billions of Naira bearing in mind that the SE harbors some of the largest markets both in Nigeria and West-Africa and even beyond.
Some describe IPOB’s approach as a case of cutting off one’s nose to spite the face. In their view, IPOB is doing more injury to the SE in its protest against the Federal Government.

I think Chukwuma Soludo of APGA seems to be the best candidate of the lot in the Anambra elections. Unfortunately that election may not hold as can be seen from the strict observance of IPOB's #SitAtHome calls in the state. As it is, 3 scenerios may emerge in it's aftermath.
The first scenerio is that INEC may likely go ahead and declare a grossly controversial result from the very few voters that may likely defy the order amidst the voter apathy. This as expected will be highly flawed due to inadequate monitoring of the polls for obvious reasons.
Scenerio two is that Anambra will get the Imo State treatment which is basically, declaration of results without due consideration to the trajectory of candidate/party popularity. In this case, the APC candidate, though highly unpopular, will be declared winner of the polls.

How Vegas became a city like no other.

For what was for so long a small town, Las Vegas always has been about big things.
The gangsters and the gaming pioneers were larger than life.
The entertainers were the biggest and the brightest of stars.
Even the bombs were huge, as towering mushroom clouds from aboveground atomic testing in the 1950s were as iconic as the flickering neon and the stretch of skyscraper resorts that would become the signatures of this desert oasis.
That colorful past and its rich characters are captured in a new presentation on the Las Vegas Sun Web site, the History of Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada featuring videos, interactive maps, a documentary film series and historical photos and stories.

Olaudah, I am glad that you brought up “the great flowering of Islamic civilizations”. But we needn’t stop there. We also have to ask what happened to that civilization because we are today in Nigeria suffering from the aftereffects of its decay, a season of anomie which is...
reaching a critical point under Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.
President Buhari has presided over a moral and intellectual primitivization of Nigeria, such that much of the enlightenment gains of the postcolonial era have been erased.
Nigeria has now, for all the world, relapsed into what the English philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, in his celebrated 1651 work, Leviathan, described as a "state of nature".

My dear people of Rivers State

As we all know, following the recent judgement of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, which upheld the constitutional right and authority of State Governments to impose, collect and utilize value added taxes (VAT) within their respective...
territorial jurisdictions, the Rivers State Government enacted the Rivers State Value Added Tax Law 2021 to regulate the effective administration of VAT in Rivers State.
2. As expected, the Federal Government, through the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), disagreed and filed an appeal coupled with a request for stay-of-execution of the judgment before the Federal High Court.
