Much ado about Tekno’s Agege video

Since there has been no refutal of the alleged threat to make an example of music artiste, Augustine Kelechi, otherwise known as Tekno, it is safe to conclude that the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Chief Segun Runsewe, truly offered that much to the media about Tekno’s Agege video. And that is quite unfortunate.Of course, it [...]

Buhari, don’t bother fighting for the poor

Mr. President stylishly threw a ballistic missile from Daura to the roof of Audu Ogbe — wherever he was a day ago — when he said that he would appoint a minister who is knowledgeable and will know how to promote interest and investment in the sector. Buhari did not say he would appoint a knowledgeable minister like Ogbe! He [...]

Why VP Osinbajo must begin charity at home

On the 2023 Campaigners in 2019 

Early campaign or what some political analysts would rightly call ‘jumping the gun’ is part of what blights our electoral process. It is distasteful and disruptive, as it cuts into the time for governance. Worried about the development, top political actors and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission have had cause to speak against it at one time or [...]
