Olympics Basketball 2012: star-packed USA clashes with Nigeria

The U.S has LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony etc while Nigeria holds some NBA talents including Al-Farouq Aminu of the Hornets. Regardless of the stars all over the American team, no one should under-estimate the resolve of the Nigerian team. A key member of the team Ike Diogu, a former top-10 NBA draft pick cautions that "We will not be intimidated by those guys…. A lot of us went to school in the U.S. and have played against those guys. We have no reason to feel overwhelmed." Unless a basketball miracle occurs, USAfrica analysts say the U.S team holds the advantage for victory. By Chido Nwangwu

Awolowo’s STARVATION Policy against Biafrans and the Igbo requires apology not attacks on Achebe

Some have tried to put the blame on Gowon or the military leaders but Chief Awolowo’s own words are clear: “I decided to stop sending the food there.” It was not a military decision by Adekunle or Murtala. This is a decision made by then Finance minister of the federation, Chief Awolowo. He owned that decision in the interview quoted above. Whenever this issue is raised Awoists and the Awolowo family usually drew umbrage, assailing whoever called Awo out on this issue and generally attacking the character of those who dare to confront Awoists on the frailties of their leaders. It is time for Awoist to realize that Chief Awolowo is not infallible. He made some sound decision in governance as well as other horrendous decisions, one of which is this starvation policy. He might have done it to please the northern oligarchy who had promised to install him as president or he might have had a truly altruistic motive; whatever the case this is a sadistic policy that should never have been put in place by any Nigerian leader. The impact of Chief Awolowo's starvation decision on Biafra’s children still reverberates around the world. It was such that over 40 years later, Steve Jobs referenced it in the interview for his 2011 biography written by Walter Isaacson.

Why President Jonathan’s retention of Adefuye as Nigeria’s Ambassador to USA exposes poor judgment....

With an almost complete failure to deal with Boko Haram, resurgent threats of militancy in the Niger Delta, broadening and unnerving sagas of monumental corruption over the fuel subsidy regime, and many more unnatural disasters that Nigeria faces today, it is most unfortunate that the President of Nigeria should shy away from leading the nation. President Jonathan seems to believe that he could preserve his administration by doing as little as possible. Leaving Adefuye in office is just a crystal example of the President choosing to do nothing and, by implication, choosing not to lead at a time that leadership is so critically needed.

“President Jonathan’s decision removing fuel subsidy is right, timely” -says Dr. I.B Usoro

"Those who oppose it don't have the right information. Some of them know better but support the demonstrations. The demonstrators should call on their new friends, namely the Soyinkas and the Babangidas to ask the House to demand that the proper appropriation/law for subsidy be funded."
