Luckier than Saul, Fayose needs Solomon’s wisdom not to end like him

When the Jews cried for one, the Almighty God, in [...]

Chibok girls: President Jonathan’s election joker or burden

BY JAMES YEKU The recent and sudden urgency that has facilitated the Nigerian military’s expurgation of terrorist activities in the country’s North-East would have been an epochal and celebrated march against Islamist insurgency had the Chibok girls not been pawns all along in the political chessboard of the Nigerian State.

Re: 2015 elections: The devil’s alternative
