In this edition which opens our series with the title: ‘ACTS OF THE APOSTLES’, we focus on a great Nigerian nationalist,  Alhaji Sir Ahmadu Bello Knight of the British Empire, who was a Nigerian politician; the first and only premier of the Northern Nigeria. Ahmadu Bello was the Sardauna of Sokoto, and played major roles in negotiations about the region’s place in an independent Nigeria. He was leader of the Northern People’s Congress, that ruled Nigeria until the termination of the First Republic politics in 1966.  This topic: ‘Acts of the Apostles ’is coined and used for political purpose only; as Nigerian politicians still largely regard themselves as followers or disciples of Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ahmadu Bello, and Aminu Kano. People easily identify with these great Nigerians and their contributions to societal development, without necessarily allowing their political philosophies on these great political figures to reflect in their own deeds. If you are in doubt, call a few notable Nigerian politicians today and ask them for the philosophies and ideologies of those great Nigerians who they are claiming to have influenced their lives. You would most likely record an ‘’over the bar’’. Therefore, in moving Nigeria forward, we must necessarily take a look at our past, how those Nigerians successfully ruled Nigeria, the present and the way forward.

If you consider yourself as a disciple of these great Nigerians named above, and you fail to conduct yourself the way they conducted themselves as wonderful patriots, then you are obviously a fake apostle ot follower; and, therefore,  a huge political failure. This piece contains extracts from ‘Going Back to Basics: The Past as Prologue’ a lecture delivered by: Mallam Adamu Fika, CFR; Wazirin Fika; a retired bureaucrat.  Adamu Fika, was one of the officers trained by the first generation of top career public officers who took up the mantle of leadership from the colonialists when they exited in 1960.  It contains thought provoking issues and opinions. PILGRIMAGE TO SAUDI ARABIA: ”On a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, the Premier used to pay all expenses for himself and those he sponsored from his own resources. He also paid customs duties on any…
