Reports say about twenty one people have been killed in the blast and about 17 people injured. It is not yet clear what was caused the explosion but Boko Haram is suspected. Boko Haram, the Islamist militant group has unleashed a reign of terror across northern Nigeria and has set up bombs in Abuja recently.

Someone has to accept responsibility for Nigerian's security. The buck stops at the President's Desk. We are cutting this man too much slack. Even his Army Generals are substandard. The Chief of Defence Staff decided to pull an ill-adviced public relations stunt the other day. This shows that he is grossly incompetent and unqualified for that position or rank. Is it until Boko Haram attacks the 'Three Arms Zone', before we understand that this is serious sfuff. We have come a long way in Nigeria. How did we get saddled with this leadership?

My condolences to those wounded and the families of the dead. May the souls of the dead rest in peace, amen. My heart was almost torn into pieces when I heard that a shopping complex had been hit by a bomb in Abuja. I still remember last week when I went to one shopping complex with my wife and three children in Abuja.

It could have happened while we were there. I returned to Ghana just last Monday. But my families are there in Abuja, Kaduna, Lagos, Akure, etc. That we are alive is no longer the issue. The issue is that "Enough is enough". Many have lost very dear ones: fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, sons, daughters, etc. The senseless killing of the innocent must stop.

The government must as a matter of urgency find ways and means of entering into dialogue with the aggrieved, restive and violent group called Boko Haram. After all, no war has ever been won on the battle field alone without a corresponding round table discussion. If Emperor Hiro Hito of Japan surrender to America and withdrew his support for Nazi Germany just to get peace for his people, I think that no sacrifice is too big to make now. I shall return to this issue in greater details later.

God save Nigeria.

his is just too painful and sad when the innocents, who know nothing about what the terrorists want, become the scapegoats and victims of terrorism. How do you deal with the mindset of those who choose to kill or maim people who are not even connected to the issues that bother them?

The most painful part is also a government that has no clue of what to do next. They say success can only be achieved where preparation meets opportunity. Our system is never prepared until something happens and it's usually too late. In Nigeria, we don't oil it unless it squeaks, and we don't fix it unless it is broken. The maintenance culture is not in our psyche.

I will continue to knock our police system and law enforcement because they are not adequate. The inadequacy of our law enforcement is the fundamental problem which begets many other problems.

If we were prepared, we could easily set up a clandestine police or other operations that should have found a way to infiltrate Boko Haram. We know the Boko Mallams are not that smart.

But that will cost money that could have gone into someone's pocket. Why do you think we do not have good roads, good hospitals, adequate electricity, potable water, good police, proper criminal investigations, etc.? They cost money that should have found their ways into the thieve's pockets.

They say heaven helps those who help themselves. Until then, I reserve my prayers for Nigeria.
