    If presidency goes to south-west in 2023, Osinbajo NOT Tinubu will get my vote

If presidency goes to south-west in 2023, Osinbajo NOT Tinubu will get my vote

Why are Nigerian politicians ravished by the thought of election? They complot and machinate over it. And when they eventually get into office, they spend four years scheming for another turn instead of honouring their contract with citizens. There is always a blue-print for the next election, but a subterfuge for governance and duty. The last general election was held in [...]

    You can accuse Osinbajo of anything but not corruption

You can accuse Osinbajo of anything but not corruption

You can accuse Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo of being ‘’down-to-earth’’, considering his pint-size. You can also accuse him of intellectual exuberance, but you cannot tack corruption to him. It will not stick. Over the years, the maelstrom of anger against Osinbajo has widened. The reason for this, perhaps, is the perception by some Nigerians that he is not standing up enough for [...]

Has Osinbajo been reduced to condolence vice-president?

‘’What will Osinbajo do now?’’ I asked a senior colleague. He blurted: ‘’He has his role cut out for him already. He is in charge of Tradermoni and condolence visits.’’ Really, what is Yemi Osinbajo’s detail in the government now, considering the recent staggering upshots? Has he been lame-ducked and functionally vasectomised? The last time Nigeria had a vice-president with the potency [...]
