Benue pogrom: Dancing on victims’ graves

As the nation groped in fuel darkness during the Yuletide season, the Nobel laureate's distraught words perhaps best described the shame and tragedy of it all. The authorities in Abuja would rather indulge in the profanity of buck-passing, lamented Professor Wole Soyinka. That climate of shame would appear to have grown even more inclement and the midnight children of impunity more [...]

    Why Atiku will not be president

Why Atiku will not be president

Atiku is a founding father of the PDP, the ACN and the APC. The promiscuity is legendary.
