Columns and Opinions across Nigerian Newspapers

Extraordinary Country, Ordinary President, - celebrates Martin Banham, a great British drama scholar, who has fond memories about Nigeria and its unique theater climate “Nigerians expect a lot from their presidents; they expect a president to be powerful without being overbearing.”  “[Courage, wisdom, loyalty are] all virtues which a well-regulated country with a good king or a good general wouldn’t need. In a good country virtues wouldn’t be necessary. Everybody could be quite ordinary, and, for all I care, cowards.” –Bertolt Brecht,
