Towards a Mediocre-Free Leadership in Nigeria

In April 2011, Nigerians will return to the polls to elect a new set of leaders to pilot the affairs of the nation for another four years. Our politicians, always with a penchant for the spectacular, are already strutting the political landscape, trying to out-do one another with intimidating messages through various channels including posters, giant billboards, fanciful T-shirts and radio/TV jingles. One major political party has even thrown the retrogressive and anachronistic concept of zoning into the fray thus making the whole scenario quite interesting. The National Association of Seadogs (NAS) has on its part been watching these scenarios with keen interest and concern.

NAS Condemns Nigeria’s 50th Anniversary Abuja Bombings

The National Association of Seadogs (NAS) unequivocally condemns the dastardly bomb blast that claimed the lives of several innocent Nigerians and friends of Nigeria in Abuja on Nigeria’s 50th Independence Anniversary on Friday the 1st of October,2010.

We express our profound condolences to the families of those who were killed in this unfortunate and ugly incident that occurred on an historic day when our nation was celebrating her Golden jubilee.

Nigeria's 50th Independence Anniversary - Our collective failure to build a virile Nation

On 1st October 2010, Nigeria marks its 50th Anniversary as an independent and Sovereign Nation. A Golden Jubilee, is a milestone in the life of an individual or a nation, and typically calls for celebration. This therefore, explains the flush of enthusiasm in the build up to this year's Independence Day Anniversary. Our political leaders have rolled out drums across the Federation for an elaborate and lavish Celebration.

Federal Legislators' Pay Rise: Reprehensible and Condemnable

The National Association of Seadogs just like many concerned Nigerians is dismayed to note that despite the very trying economic circumstances the country is going through, the National Assembly could go ahead, without a hint of consideration for the plight of the ordinary citizen, to increase arbitrarily, the salaries of its members. The speed and dispatch deployed by both houses of the National Assembly in endorsing this anomaly goes to show how desperate and to what extent our politicians could go in a bid to amass wealth at the expense of taxpayers.

NAS Press Release: Gani Fawehinmi: We must not let him die

The death in the early hours of Saturday, Sept. 5 2009 of Gani Fawehinmi, one of Nigeria’s most outstanding legal luminaries and human and civil rights activist was received with shock, trepidation and despair by the National Association of Seadogs (NAS).  The reason for this is not far-fetched: the country has lost one of its most courageous, fearless, tireless, and most committed defenders of the common man, peoples’ rights, justice and truth.
