Time for Nigeria to turn away from analog leadership in digital age. By Donald Duke

Special to USAfrica (Houston) and @USAfricaLIVE One thing we all can agree on, regardless of our diverse backgrounds, privileges or circumstances, is that we could do a lot better than we currently are accomplishing. We need no soothsayer to tell us that our nonchalance, selfishness and greed are eclipsing our collective future and thereby threatening our very own survival to an extent we can hardly fathom. Expectedly, the launch of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement, shortly after former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, has elicited diverse commentaries. There is the excitement that something is, at last, happening in the polity that reverses the bore and replacing that with hope. There was also confusion and, of course, condemnation by a critical few. Good enough, still on another side of the divide, there are also those who proffer no ideas or solutions, but seemingly have the answers to all that should be right and wrong i…

Atiku can't "work with a man like Obasanjo", says spokesperson Atiku is not considering any form of alliance with the movement recently launched with Obasanjo's backing. Atiku is expected to be Buhari's biggest challenger in the 2019 presidential election (The Nation)
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has ruled out any possibility of working with the Coalition for Nigeria that was recently launched by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. This was disclosed by Atiku's spokesperson, Paul Ibe, when he was questioned by the Daily Post on the possibility of the former Vice President reuniting with Obasanjo under whom he served as deputy between 1999 and 2007 under the umbrella of the People's Democratic Party (PDP). Ibe said Atiku is not considering any form of alliance with the movement as it is fueled by a man who no longer associates with the PDP and has dismissed it. He said, "Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is focusing on the hope of his new political party…

There’s something about the idea of silence that seems to make people so ridiculously uncomfortable. People have a tendency to read my silence as anger or sadness, and they assume that anger is directed at them. I’m just minding my own business, and to be honest, I’m probably thinking about money.
