Hope Reality Movement members at a strategic meeting As the elections for the governorship and state houses of assembly come in a matter of hours, political parties and stakeholders in the fray have retreated from the campaign fields to tactically strategise for the main event holding on Saturday, March 9, 2019 in all the states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

…And Or If Buhari Wins…

President Muhammadu Buhari By Evaristus Bassey “Should Buhari win, we as citizens must be prepared for two things. The first should be to stretch the great endurance for which we are known. The power centres within the Buhari presidency would assert themselves more ferociously, with Osinbanjo becoming more of a lame-duck VP***The second option would be to prepare to be citizens by non-violent advocacies. We will have to learn in a hard way to put aside what makes us idiots(selfish) and tribesmen instead of citizens” Belonging to a political party…

Still On The Power President To Remove, Suspend CJN

Suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen By Paul Onyilo Challenging the legality, constitutionality and sanity of the swift action of the president, MOHAMADU BUHARY in suspending the Chief Justice of Nigeria, (CJN), WALTER ONNOGHEN, is not only a journey to a shadow land, but also a deliberate indefinite optimistic adventure to fetch out the truth from the bottom of a bottomless pit. The validity and legality of the expedient action of the president may be founded in both the prerogative of the president as administrative head of an…

What Bouquet Obi Brings To The Table

Mr. Peter Obi By Jude Atupulazi Except for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, no other Vice President of the country has been very visible and influential. Serving under Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a retired army general, as his vice, Atiku pulled enough weight to take the nation’s number two seat well above its perception as a sort of spare tyre. Today, the same Atiku is gunning for the presidency of the country and he has chosen a man whom many see as another person to make the veepee seat a lot more than…

2019: Prof. Sagay Clears Atiku Of Corruption Despite Giving Dog Bad Name

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar By Daniel Alabrah On November 14, 2018, the Saturday Sun led its front page with the bold headline: “The Atiku Dilemma,” with two accompanying riders: 1. We want to prosecute him for graft but no evidence to nail him, says Itse Sagay; and 2. Ex-VP now vindicated – PDP.

The Rise And Fall Of Burna Boy?

Burna Boy By Toni Kan Oh, we have seen it happen before. Blackky. Eedris. 9ice. Dbanj They rise, they burn incandescent, bright stars illuminating our musicos-phere and then they burn out, interred in some unforgiving black hole. Most often, they are brought low and humbled by an error of judgment, a mistake, poor judgement, shifting tides but mostly ego and arrogance. That is the nature of the beast called fame. It is self-cannibalizing, like a dog that feeds on its brood. Today, Burna Boy is king, his star is in…

Claim Of 12 Million Rice Farm-Holders In Nigeria Amounts To Deception

Rice farmers at work By Fashua As an economist I have an inquiring mind. What the profession teaches in essence, is the need to keep asking questions. And for that reason, there is nothing called an ‘economic expert’, except you are experts in asking questions. Anyone who says they are an expert in economics is a fraud, simple. Pay them their consultancy fees because that is what they are after. Otherwise, an economist is someone with an unbelievably broad mind, who is ready to take on more and more information…

Donald Ojogo: The man the cap fits

Only a few like Alhaji Lateef Jakande, Chief Olusegun Osoba, Chief Bisi Onabanjo and Chief Mbadinuju from the fourth estate of the realm among others have successfully done it. Others have merely contended with their kingmaker status. However, that docility from them is about to change as some of them are throwing their hats into the political/elective offices ring for next year’s election. They no longer want to be appointees answerable to someone else but want people to be answerable to them. This time, the searchlight is on Donald Ojogo.…

2019: The Irony Of A Buhari Second Term As Campaign Begins

President Muhammadu Buhari By Rev. Fr. Evaristus Bassey If all politics is local, there must be an exception in Nigeria. Here, all politics is selfish, especially southern Nigeria politics. If President Muhammadu Buhari wins another four-year term, it wouldn’t be because of any stellar performances; it would be because of southern Nigeria politicians. Buhari has always won large in the North-East and North-West until the 2015 momentum thrust victory into his hands largely because he teamed up with Tinubu the strong man of the South-West. Just a few months ago…
