Now and Then

Today at AM Meeting Prof. Akinwunmi Isola in when he featured on my program Born in , he died in February due to ill-health. He was a playwright, novelist, dramatist and culture activist.

His works testify to the authenticity of Yoruba language and culture. He was a great African. Have you considered the instruments of organization and mobilization deployed in the intra-ruling class struggle for power? There are tools for the covert manipulation and shaping of the thoughts and ideas of followers.

These tools are controlled mostly by the ruling elites. This is one of the reasons politicians like Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Ibrahim Babagida and Olusegun Obasanjo, continue to dominate the politics of the Nigerian state. In this sense, attention is focused on the triad of hegemony, media and power.


Adigun Agbaje. In the study, he brilliantly and critically examined how the press is used for self preservation and the management of visibility.

Obasanjo spent most of his first term travelling abroad. He succeeded in winning at least some Western support for strengthening Nigeria's nascent democracy.

Britain and the United States, in particular, were glad to have an African ally who was openly critical of the abuses committed in Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe at a time when many other African nations including South Africa were taking a softer stance.

Obasanjo also won international praise for Nigeria's role in crucial regional peacekeeping missions in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Capturing Obasanjo increased the share of oil royalties and rents to the state of origin from 3 to 13 percent.

However, under Obasanjo, the growth rate doubled to 6 percent until he left office, helped in part by higher oil prices. Most of these loans were accumulated from short-term trade arrears during the exchange control period.

Point of correction. Most of these loans were accumulated not out of corruption but during a period — when Nigeria operated exchange control regime that vested all foreign exchange transactions on the central bank of Nigeria.

The naira exchange rate to the US dollar and other major currencies during this period was highly regulated and artificially high. Nigerian importers paid local currency equivalent to the central bank through their local commercial banks but during the oil glut period of —86 when foreign exchange was scarce the central bank did not have enough foreign exchange to pay for current imports.

This resulted in short-term foreign trade payment arrears. Nigeria stopped accumulating short-term foreign trade payment arrears beginning from Subsequent growth of Nigeria's debt was due to interest on the previous year's stock of short-term trade debt owed to export credit agencies and non-insured creditors Source:CBN Annual Reports — This information to refute the claim that corruption was the source of Nigeria's past foreign debt is supplied by Osarenren F.

Third term agenda[ edit ] Obasanjo was embroiled in controversy regarding his "Third Term Agenda," a plan to modify the constitution so he could serve a third, four-year term as President.Perhaps that is why this book had to be in three volumes.
