Buhari’s WAEC ‘certificate’ and the show of shame at Aso Rock

I thought I was never going to recover from the shock of what played out at Aso Rock on Friday when President Muhammadu Buhari was presented with the West African Examination Council (WAEC) “attestation result. The Nigerian seat of power was agog with jubilation and near pomp as cabinet members flocked around the president to rejoice with him over the [...]

Buhari’s certificate controversy: The bane of poor record keeping in Nigeria

President Muhamadu Buhari has always insisted that his WAEC certificate was with the Secretary of the Military Board. But, in 2015, the military, through its then director of Army Public Relations, Olajide Laleye, denied that it was in possession of the certificate and that there was no record to show that Buhari submitted such important document.Even Government College Katsina, the [...]

President Buhari, WAEC and PDP’s toxic air

The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, Friday, said the controversy concerning President Muhammadu Buhari’s school certificate is embarrassing and felt a sense of duty to produce and deliver to him a confirmation and attestation of his results, in form of a duplicate certificate.This is a god-sent, with WAEC being a non-political entity. This should put to rest the absurd allegations [...]

Buhari’s slip-ups and the melodramatic season of vain elections

Every four years in Nigeria, political-friends do become political-enemies and political-enemies do become political-friends. Corrupt people are silently declared ‘saints’ and lawless, but influential men and women are used to deliver massive votes. ‘Sins’ against citizens are forgiven and agencies that arrest corrupt and prosecute erring politicians either go to bed, snoring or temporarily become deaf and blind.We are currently [...]

Is Magu still Nigeria’s most dangerous man?

It’s a surprise that the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, is still standing.His appointment had been barely announced when some folks with very long memory of their unpleasant encounter with him in their earlier life stuck the knife in his back; they’ve been twisting it since.They have been at it now for three [...]

Shi’ite crisis: Nigeria is playing with fire

No matter what the Nigerian Army and the Nigeria Police Force say in the aftermath of the latest face-off with members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, this country cannot justify the measure of force its agents have continued to unleash on this religious group.But this incident, in which an unclarified number of people lost their lives, is indicative of [...]

Buhari’s ‘new affection’ for Jonathan and the 2019 elections

As we nudge towards the 2019 presidential election, and with many people predicting that it will be more bitterly fought than the acrimonious 2015 poll, there is something that is giving me some hope that the doomsday scenario may not materialize after all: it is Buhari’s increasingly softening rhetoric on former President Jonathan.For instance when he hosted members of the [...]

Buhari’s credentials: The ‘staff’ must stop

Much back in the days when the military was still in power, it was a common sight for a soldier in a commercial bus popularly referred to as 'danfo' whether in uniform or mufti, to reply a conductor's request for bus fares with the word 'staff'. Like magic, the conductor moves on to other passengers and lets the man be.It [...]

Jaafar Jaafar’s finest moment

One is not sure if President Muhammadu Buhari was informed of the giant strides of a journalist with the rather interesting name of Jaafar Jaafaar. This is important because our president expressed his disappointment last week with Nigerian journalists for not blowing his administration’s trumpet for the agricultural revolution he claimed was ongoing in the country.  For an administration that [...]
