The 29th edition of the African Cup of Nations commences on the 19th of January, 2012. We want to us this medium to wish the Super Eagles and Coach Steven Keshi well and we call on them to do us proud.
KontriMan also uses this medium to congratulate Confederation of African Football (CAF) and South Africa and wish the well also. We hope that the tournament would be a success and surpass past edition. As for the other participating countries we call on them to play good football and uphold all that is good in the game. All stakeholders in African Football should see themselves as ambassadors for the continent.
Africa, the world is watching.


This people in Government must really think Nigerians are really stupid and as such treat us with disdain and contempt. If not how can one explain the drama currently unfolding on the issue of his son money laundering case.
The other day it was that the Judges were in a conference and yesterday the story was that the Judge that the matter was assigned to was not on seat.


It is a known fact that today in Nigeria, corruption is one of the biggest problems we face in Nigeria. It is no secrete that our leaders are corrupt. But the story does not end there; let us truly reflect and ask our selves this fundamental question? Is it only our leaders that are corrupt, what of we the people; are we any better?

The Man Died And So What? By Bayo Oluwasanmi

16 Jan 2013


KontriMan joins KontriPipu to remember our fallen heroes and pray that they did not die in vain. The only way their deaths would not have been in vain is if Nigeria becomes a great country.
Let us all endeavour to make Nigeria great.
Unity and Faith, Peace and Progress.


In recent times the news has been awash with stories of the rift between Chief Matthew Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The climax of this battle at the moment is the sacking of Olagunsoye Oyinlola (an Obasanjo man) by Bamanga Tukur (a Jonathan man).
The major reason behind this rift is no doubt the 2015 elections. The million dollar question is this: who is going to bow first?


KontriPipu, what is happening in our kontri? Not a day goes by that we do not get one report or the other about fire. The latest ones were in Ikeja City Mall yesterday, thank God disaster was averted as no lives were lost and the damage was not much.  Also, the office of the Chief of Godogodo in Jema’a local government area of Kaduna State was yesterday by fire.
Please as we have been saying be safety conscious and endeavour to improve on your knowledge on safety.


KontriPipu, we want to hear your opinion on which careers in your view are considered as the top in Nigeria. In our view the basic criteria should include but not be restricted to the following:

  1. Income
  2. Job Security
  3. Employment Opportunities
  4. Career development
  5. Status
  6. Job satisfaction.
Abeg KontriPipu, let us endeavour to send in our opinions.


Only in Nigeria would the elections still be over 2 years away and campaigns would have started for the elections. Nigeria is really a country of absurdities if not how can one explain a situation where the current political office holders have failed in their responsibilities to the people and are currently looking for a new term of office that is still far, far away.
The ideal thing to do should be to use their current terms to justify another term in office by their works. After all one good term deserves another.
We call on all political office holders to focus on now and leave tommorow to take care of itself, abi wetin kontriman go talk.


Human life is sacred, even an animal has dignity of life and as such there is an appropriate way to kill them. These days we hear reports in Nigeria of how people are senselessly killed even for mundane reasons. It so bad that we can see a corpse and pass by as if nothing happened. No matter who dies even if it is a destitute, we should always remember that we are all human beings created by God, with a right to life. That society and the ruling class and other conditions have made some individuals to live lesser than human beings does not in any way give us the right to threat them with disdain. Please let us endeavour to show love and concern and  be our brothers keeper.
