    If Buhari needs more rest he should transfer power again

If Buhari needs more rest he should transfer power again

The constitution says that the president, in governing the country, should meet regularly with the members of the federal executive council.  But it doesn’t say how often nor how regularly this meeting should be held.This explains why former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua initially decided to hold the federal executive council meeting every fortnight before reversing to the traditional weekly schedule.Thus, [...]

    A presidency at war with everybody

A presidency at war with everybody

I think one of the reasons the Muhammadu Buhari administration currently seems overwhelmed and isolated is because the honcho and those close to him bought the hype that he was the only man that could change Nigeria.There is no doubt that a man, especially one widely touted to be of exemplary disposition can lead a revolution to change the lives [...]

The ultimate battle for Yemi Osinbajo’s political destiny

Oluyemi Oluleke Osinbajo. I have followed this professor of law for nearly a decade, and I’ve admired him from a distance all the while. When he came up in discussions with friends back at the University of Ibadan, I’d defend him like my father – especially at a time when he was largely “unknown”. In 2011, when General Muhammadu Buhari was contesting [...]

Presenting a united front to end malaria for good

The United Nations' call to “end malaria for good” resonates deeply with me – I have had malaria.  I am encouraged by the progress that has been made to eliminate this terrible disease.   The global mortality rate dropped by 47 per cent between 2000 and 2013 and the number of children killed by malaria has declined by two-thirds since 2000, [...]

Who is the presidency?

When last week, President Muhammadu Buhari decided to suspend the secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal, and the director general of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency, ambassador Ayo Oke in order to allow unfettered investigations of both public officers, the most striking immediate reaction was the SGF asking: who is the presidency? State house correspondents had accosted the then [...]

    The murderers of Calabar

The murderers of Calabar

Last week our country lost another set of citizens, and as usual, they were needless deaths. That’s why I think their deaths should be classified as murders with perpetrators consequently brought to book giving a fitting closure to their senseless exits.While others worldwide enjoyed the football match between Manchester United and Anderlecht on Thursday, April 20, some who gathered at [...]

    Lai Mohammed and gift from the Queen of Sheba

Lai Mohammed and gift from the Queen of Sheba

Since it has become a notable and sad commentary that Nigerians particularly our young persons have lost touch with history of worthwhile developments within and outside our clime, it becomes imperative to explain that the “Wisdom tourism” seeking queen of Sheba reigned in Ethiopia over 2,000 years ago. In world history, Ethiopia and Egypt, all in the “horn” of Africa [...]

    Sanusi’s home truth deserves introspection

Sanusi’s home truth deserves introspection

The time has come, I propose, for the expression — "Sanusi stirs controversy" — to be officially classified as a cliché. It would appear each time Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, the emir of Kano, talks, there must be an outbreak of controversy. Whenever he discusses economics or politics, passions are always inflamed, opinion is sharply divided and a free-for-all often [...]

    How they make it in Nigeria

How they make it in Nigeria

They almost spoilt our Easter fun with the thriller of Osborne Towers in Ikoyi, Lagos. In these hard times when most Nigerians have barely something to eat – no one talks of “square” meals anymore – a gang of thieves had hidden almost N15billion ($50million) in one flat in an edifice built with stolen money also. The primary suspect claimed [...]
