Steve Orji’s opinion piece in The Guardian of September 12, 2017 passed my muster point. I hereby refer to it. We do not have to go looking for people skilled in the art of Freudian analysis to know where the challenges of Nigeria lie. In 2017, with the dividends of democracy yet to be delivered by the ruling party to the masses, some ‘Diogenes’ in the ruling party are shopping for a presidential candidate to upstage President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
I had to get over my hissy fit before I could write this essay. I had not seen Cosmos since 2014. He is now a radical ideologue on a mission to save Christians from the hands of Muslims planning to Islamise Nigeria. My emotions were massively overdrawn. Cosmos is a highly cerebral fellow, and I am shocked that he has fallen for this religious stratagem. The puritanical brow of Christians in Nigeria furrow quickly when issues concerning Muslims are discussed.
THE dysfunction in Nigeria makes political positions authoritarian even in a democracy. Now, politicians give preconditions for loyalty to Nigeria. This is not so in the military. A soldier understands what another soldier wants. Soldiers work with the same mind, speak their lingo and interpret acts exactly as they want them. Officers are taught the art of leadership, together with academics and other nuances of the profession.Even though soldiers die at a moment’s notice, many still enlist anyway.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
