Buhari’s ‘Next Level Logo’: Plagiarism is just a word

President Buhari’s ‘Next Level campaign logo’ has ticked off an avoidable controversy. The logo is said to be that of “a project of Winthrop University-School Partnership Network in collaboration with Fort Mill School District (York 4), Lancaster County School District, [...]

In ‘Transition Hours’, Jonathan writes back

“There was no bitterness in him after he left power. He did not look back. He did not look down. Instead he looked up and after looking up, he looked forward and went on pressing ahead. That forward movement has resulted in this work of statecraft and statesmanship of which I am privileged to write the foreword. Though there are [...]

Our senators are ‘tired’

We have those who are tired because of the turn out of political events and others who believed that the country would be better with the coming of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government but ended up being "sorely" disappointed.Some of the senators who belong to the latter category [...]

From ‘Change’ to ‘Next Level’: Buhari’s democratic second coming

The Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization and the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi (a former member of the PDP) said and I quote: “Power has improved from 3,000 megawatts that we met it to 7,000megawatts and we are discharging about 5,000megawatts.” How can we be discharging 5000MW as a nation and our people are daily sleeping in darkness?

Our lame duck governor

The phrase “lame duck” is used cautiously in this piece. One, we don’t have a new governor yet in Lagos State as Akinwumi Ambode remains our governor until May 29, 2019. But, for many of us residents of the state, our dear governor is dozing; no, he’s actually sleeping.It is apparent that Ambode has not fully recovered from the blow [...]

Buhari ‘the dead’ and his body double

The notorious rumour in circulation on Nigerian streets sounds every bit like a citation from a James Hadley Chase. Chase had a pleasant notoriety with his crime fiction novels that hold you spellbound. With a gloating slide to it, the rumour is trending, with celebrated gusto, about the “death” of the man Nigerians elected into office in May, 2015. On the [...]

The demons tormenting Nigeria

Dr. Yemi Kale, the Statistician General of the National Bureau of Statistics of Nigeria (NBS), recently tweeted that the bureau’s unemployment report was being delayed by funding issues.

However, those familiar with the [...]
