Between HSBC and Buhari

Hence, that our politics suffers “craw-craw” and monkey pox is largely due to the political parties.I believe the APC and the PDP are not a favourable option for the Nigerian people – in view of the [...]

Following an increasingly commonplace epic journey between Lagos and Abeokuta this last weekend – 5hrs 10 minutes outwards (Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Saturday Sept 15) and 4hrs 25 minutes return journey the following day via Otta - I feel compelled to offer this article in recognition of a national commitment to the predictable, and a passion for time travel – backwards!  It [...]
