Edgar Lungu’s Potential Triumph in 2026: A Double-Edged Sword for Zambia’s Economy

Published

In the Zambian politics, the narrative is often painted with strokes of loyalty, betrayal, and the pursuit of redemption. As the nation looks ahead to the 2026 elections, the specter of Edgar Lungu looms large, reminiscent of other iconic figures who defied the odds and reclaimed power against all odds. Yet, while some see Lungu as the winning ticket, others question the economic implications of his potential return.

Drawing parallels with the political landscape of Brazil and the enduring legacy of Nelson Mandela in South Africa, proponents of Lungu’s candidacy argue that he is Zambia’s equivalent of these revered figures – the only beacon of hope capable of steering the nation to prosperity. They point to the resilience of leaders like Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who, despite facing adversity and persecution, returned to power to lead their countries to new heights.

In Brazil, Lula’s triumphant return to the presidency after being unjustly imprisoned underscores the power of perseverance and the unwavering support of the people. Similarly, supporters of Lungu believe that his leadership is indispensable in navigating the challenges facing Zambia, particularly in the face of what they perceive as overpromising and underdelivering from his political opponents.

However, amidst the fervor surrounding Lungu’s potential resurgence, voices of dissent caution against blindly placing faith in a single individual. They point to the economic setbacks and governance issues that characterized Lungu’s previous tenure, highlighting the need for a more nuanced approach to Zambia’s political future.

While Lungu’s supporters may view him as the key to unlocking Zambia’s potential, detractors argue that a continuation of his leadership could exacerbate existing economic challenges. They advocate for a shift towards progressive policies and inclusive governance, citing opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema as a viable alternative who embodies the principles of accountability and economic reform.

Indeed, Hichilema’s vision for Zambia resonates with many who see him as the right man to lead the country forward. His background in business and commitment to transparency offer a stark contrast to the perceived shortcomings of Lungu’s administration, providing a compelling alternative for voters disillusioned with the status quo.

As Zambia stands at a crossroads, the choice between Lungu and Hichilema represents more than just a political decision – it is a referendum on the nation’s future trajectory. While Lungu may embody the aspirations of some, Hichilema offers a vision of change and progress that resonates with others.

In the end, the path to 2026 is paved with uncertainty and possibility. Whether Lungu emerges victorious or Hichilema leads Zambia into a new era, one thing remains clear – the fate of the nation lies in the hands of its people, who must weigh the costs and benefits of each candidate’s leadership carefully before casting their vote.

EFCC’s  Judgment on Cubana Chief Priest Just a Fine and Step Against Naira Abuse

Published

on

In a recent judgment by Justice Kehinde Ogundare of the Federal High Court in Lagos, the case against Okechukwu Pascal, popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest, has set a precedent in the fight against Naira abuse. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) brought three counts against him, focusing on the desecration of Nigeria’s legal tender.

The EFCC, acting under Section 14(2) of its Establishment Act of 2004, compounded the offenses by imposing a fine of N10,000,000 (Ten Million Naira). This amount far exceeds the standard penalty of N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) for such infractions, showcasing the Commission’s commitment to deterring future violations.

This significant fine came as a result of a request by the defense counsel, Chikaosolu Ojukwu, SAN, for the offenses to be compounded under the said section of the EFCC Act. The court’s decision also mandates Cubana Chief Priest to spearhead an extensive awareness campaign against the abuse of Naira notes and coins as stipulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act.

As part of his penalty, Cubana Chief Priest is required to post a minimum of two video clips bi-monthly on his social media platforms, promoting the proper handling of the Naira and discouraging any form of abuse. This unique form of punishment aims not only at penalizing him but also at educating the public and preventing future offenses.

The EFCC’s Special Task Force against Naira Abuse and the Dollarization of the economy remains vigilant. This judgment should serve as a wake-up call for all Nigerians to uphold the sanctity of the Naira and avoid any actions that could undermine the nation’s legal tender.
