Providing a clear definition for corporate social responsibility (CSR) is gradually becoming a subject for argument as corporations deem most government’s policies on CSR to be a form of shirking their responsibility while the government on the other hand sees companies – especially multinational corporations as not doing enough for the environment where their businesses operate. The debate on CSR…Continue

East Africa is caught in a deadly resource paradox, the resolution of which will either result in great development or the reduction of our homeland into a wasteland of war, death and oil.
There was a lot of (unhealthy?) excitement recently in energy circles over gas finds in the general East African region, mainly in Mozambique and Tanzania.
AFP, the French wire service, claimed…Continue

The present bribe allegation against Farouk Lawan puts a question mark on his erstwhile ranking as a man of integrity
It is his fourth time in the House of Representatives. He first came in 1999 and since then had remained not just a regular face in the house but an influential member also. In fact, Farouk Lawan, the lawmaker representing Bagwai/Shanono Federal Constituency was, to many people, the symbol of the crusade for…Continue

“A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.” (Prov. 13 vs. 22)
Parents struggle and save to send their children to the best schools, to put them in a favourable position to compete with their mates. Most parents spend all they earn and own to give their children the very best of training and some end up not having enough left over to complete their own personal buildings or to even…
Without wasting words on the present challenges that Nigeria is faced with, it gives a strange feeling of hope to do the exercise of imagining Nigeria in a much stronger position politically and economically. The position that South Africa presently occupies is an enviable one; largely due to colonization which lingered much longer than most others lasted. The presence of Africans of other races and with multiple citizenship has also greatly helped the position of South…Continue

Those cases that were investigated to the point where it became obvious that the quest was leading nowhere and the records and evidence are put away until a future date. That is what obtains in civilized societies but in a corrupt society, presidential order could be received from above and all investigations in a case and packed and filed away at best or destroyed. Advancements in technology, new leads on the investigations or amendments of certain laws that hitherto prevented further…Continue

It is not one of those issues that we can sweep under the carpet like several others in the past. An African adage says “when a big problem causes a man to fall, smaller problems will gladly jump on the man.”
Many people want us to move beyond the present scandal that the fuel subsidy probe has evolved into so to speak. We want to move forward but we can only make as much progress if we keep coming up against more stuff that has been swept under the carpet.
A lot of…Continue

It is quite interesting to see the new crop of actors that the Nigerian movie industry is producing and the caliber of personality involved in the production of new quality movies. When members of the legislature chose to take the oil subsidy probe to the television for live broadcast, little did they know that movies most often come in parts. The probe itself was the first part of the movie.
For one of the highest profile Nigerians to accuse members of the legislature to be thieves…Continue

Associations take different forms but the bottom-line is that association accedes to the fact that one is recognized as belonging to a body. Reasons for association also vary. Associations however must be operating within the boundaries of the law within the community it is operating in for it to be considered legitimate.
