Atiku and the Cameroon Journey

Atiku and the Cameroon Journey

By Yusuf Shehu A lot has been said in recent times as regards Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the just concluded presidential elections. From what we know, he is supposedly from Jada town in Jada local government area of Adamawa state. It has also been stated that he is […]

Thanks Buhari, We Are Now “Proudly Nigerians”

Thanks Buhari, We Are Now “Proudly Nigerians”

By Bamidele Ojo I  am one Nigerian very cynical about the prosperity prospects of my country of over 57 years old as an independent state. The locust years of military intervention in the political cum democratic leadership of this generally applauded potentially great nation would forever be a pain in the heart. Let my compatriots […]

Damaturu: And Boko Haram Wept

Damaturu: And Boko Haram Wept

By Okanga Agila Somewhere, within Damaturu,  Yobe state, Maisandari, a suburb of the state capital, sitting  on the eastern flank of Damaturu, some natives  in the environs spotted strange visitors. Insurgents were already set out to unleash a horrendous attack on a defenceless population. The locals sighted unusual racing Hilux vans in a convoy on […]

Onnoghen: When A Judge Is Too Guilty To Be Innocent

Onnoghen: When A Judge Is Too Guilty To Be Innocent

By Prince Ugo The embattled former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Nkanu Onnoghen, is a lucky man.

As Buhari Opens New Vista For Unity

As Buhari Opens New Vista For Unity

By John Uche Madu Three sentimental and reverting factors have always and obstinately defined the character of Presidential elections in Nigeria.  The search for a President by Nigerians in every political dispensation usually throws up mawkish issues like tribe, religion and sectionalism.  Nigeria has been saddled with bad leaders in the past because of the […]

Buharism And Nigeria’s Irrevocable Unity

By David Onmeje 2019 would indeed go down in the history of Nigeria as the year when a people spoke out loud with one voice in support of a noble cause.

Harbin Kunama: Can Buratai Make Another Difference?

Harbin Kunama: Can Buratai Make Another Difference?

By Justice Abayomi It is quite heartbreaking to know the absurdity that every geopolitical zone in Nigeria, with the exception of the Southwest has its peculiar insecurity challenges.

Buratai And The Birth Of A New Army

Buratai And The Birth Of A New  Army

By Don Udeike I am not one that partakes in mediocrity. I am also not one that encourages others to be mediocre. I say this because the general elections have come and gone and as usual words, merchants have begun to ply their trades on behalf of their principals that includes some of those that […]

Understanding Campbell And His Corrupt Mindset On Nigeria

Understanding Campbell And His Corrupt Mindset On Nigeria

By Philip Agbese Only a few foreigners really decode the new wave of regeneration in Nigeria at the moment under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Nigerian Elections And The Military: Between Fiction And Facts

By David Onmeje The 2019 general elections in Nigeria have come and gone.  Another batch of democratic leaders have been empowered by majority of constituents to lead their destinies for another four years.
