The swift return of these schools girls to their families is something we must all applaud the Buhari led administration for irrespective of our political associations.

APC, is the falcon now hearing the falconer?

The good book says when you hear rumour of war and counter wars, just know the end is near. The same goes for politicians.

Sexual objectification of women in the society

Sexual objectification in its purest form appears to be a clean market space where there is a constant demand and supply. But when holistically viewed, it is a market space with notable damage.

Buhari administration’s albatross in 2017

A keen and honest observation of Buhari’s administration will agree the administration is walking on a tight rope from inception. The administration can be seen from the reality of the Yoruba adage 'the hen is indeed sweating it is the feather that did not allow people to see'.
