  1. IMPUNITY DOESN'T SOLVE PROBLEMS; IT EXACERBATES THEM: BOKO HARAM AS A CASE STUDY.

    On Thursday 30 July 2009, Mohammed Yusuf, the founder of Boko Haram was captured by the Nigerian Army following a 5-day manhunt in Maiduguri. He hid in a goat pen in his parent-in-law house in Kernawa. He was thereafter handed over to the police, topless, with his hands cuffed. The next the nation heard was a statement on national television by Moses Anegbode, Police AIG, that Yusuf died in a shootout while trying to escape from custody. How logical it was for a most prized detainee in...
  2. A President's 32" TV By Garba Shehu

    I think the reason that Bayo wanted to have that picture was a burning desire in him, and in all of us, to show that the President is well again, and has resumed his normal life. What a majority of Nigerians saw in that picture was a lot more than that.
  3. THE INAUDIBLE VOICE OF BUHARI: ARE NIGERIANS IMPORTANT? By Omoshola Deji

    The return of President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) after a 50day medical vacation in the UK have doused the tension and speculations about his health status. Nonetheless, public comments signals that many thinks he is neither incapacitated nor medically fit. Being mortal, it is not anomalous for PMB to be ill, but the inaudibility of his communication makes many cast doubts on whether communicating with Nigerians is indeed important to the president. The thesauruses depicts inaudible as being...
  4. GEJ Response to The Guardian of U.K.

    My attention has been drawn to a report in the Guardian of the U.K. alleging that the former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan rebuffed efforts by the British military to rescue the kidnapped Chibok Girls sometime in 2014. Nothing could be further from the truth and to prove that this story from the Guardian is untrue, the international community will recall that when a Boko Haram affiliate kidnapped a Briton and an Italian, Chris McManus and Franco Lamolinara, fromManus and Franco...
  5. IS BUHARI FIT FOR SECOND TERM

    President Muhammadu Buhari has paid his dues in Nigeria political settings, twice he has gotten the mantle of leadership to lead the people of Nigeria. First as Military head of state in 1983 and presently he is a democratically elected president of Africa’s most populous black nation ,a record previously held by General Olusegun Obasanjo. In between 1983 and 2015 when he regained power to lead the country, he has served in various capacity among which is serving as the chairman of...
  6. Buhari For Second Term

    The state of Nigerian government under which we are today can be likened to that the Cuban government where Fidel Castro, after having spent about 40 years as the President of Cuba, handed over to his own younger brother, Abel Castro in the guise of administrative continuity. Until his death in 2016, he remained the material president of Cuba while his younger brother reigned in his stead. The present political interchange that we experience in Nigeria today might not be seen as a replica of...
  7. Buhari Is Not The Problem Of Nigeria, Take It Or Leave It

    A piece by Victor Okechukwu Anyaegbuna WHO ARE THE KLEPTOCRATS? Read this intriguing and provocative piece; yet Nigerians refuse to be provoked instead holding one man, Buhari, responsible for all their woes! How far can you push a Nigerian before he reacts like an angry lion? Isn't it a ridiculous mockery and insult that Nigerians are the only world citizens that when pushed to the wall, spend more energy to break the wall and cross over rather than fight back? Read this and let's know...
  8. OBAZEE AND HIS MANY OFFENCES?

    Uneasy they say lays the head that wears crown. How can it be for an individual when he is asked to clear the mess of the entire village especially in a place where his forefathers ha really messed up and his far and near relatives are not left out? The scenario above looked like the story of Jim Obazee who was the head of the Technical department of the Nigerian Standard Boards, the predecessor organization of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, FRCN. He later became the Executive...
  9. In Defense Of Goodluck Jonathan

    IN DEFENSE OF GOODLUCK JONATHAN. By Charles Ogbu. First, let me make one thing very clear here. I did not support GEJ during the last election, not because he was not better than the other bad news from daura but because despite his very good record as a democrat and a gentleman president plus his excellent economic achievements, I still considered him too weak and not competent enough to deserve my vote especially after the insensitive manner he treated the immigration job tragedy. I was...
