Rule of Law: Garba Shehu goofs on Sambo Dasuki, By Yushau Shuaib The most painful and mind boggling dilemma in issuing rebuttals is the attempt to challenge respected professional colleagues who should know the truth from fallacy.

Makarfi’s PDP faction as the real terror group, By Richard Murphy

Makarfi’s PDP faction as the real terror group, By Richard Murphy It takes morbid callousness or an unrivalled level of ignorance or a combination of both to attempt the stunt by a faction of the troubled Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in its reaction to the release of 82 of the abducted Chibok girls.

Between Buhari’s health and Tinubu’s ‘politricks’, By Idoko Ainoko

Between Buhari’s health and Tinubu’s ‘politricks’, By Idoko Ainoko Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is really the odious, typical Nigerian politician. All is fair, if it is fair with him and his clan of sycophants in the South-west, and elsewhere. Everything must be rubbish and messy, anytime he misses his political steps. Nigeria should go into convulsion because one individual, by the...... more

Lai didn’t mis-hear Quest, why crucify him over jollof? When cable TV’s top anchor, British-born Richard Quest, visited black world’s most populous country, Nigeria recently, it was a huge chance of some image-laundering for a nation that has been pilloried over the years because of corruption, internet fraud, and overall culture of national mismanagement. For many Nigerians bored and appalled...... more

Buhari’s presidency has since ended, By Ifedayo Obi

Buhari’s presidency has since ended, By Ifedayo Obi The above question raised by Engr Babachir Lawal, the (suspended) almighty Secretary to Government of Federation (SGF), got me brain-storming for hours.

For South Africans, another ‘long trek’ looms, By Abdulrazaq Magaji

For South Africans, another ‘long trek’ looms, By Abdulrazaq Magaji Stiff-necked apartheid high priests had their problems but none of them contemplated the type of weird political culture the ANC and Mr. Zuma are foisting on post-apartheid South Africa.

The gay community and rising suicide, By Tony Ademiluyi

The gay community and rising suicide, By Tony Ademiluyi The American Psychological Association scored a Pyrrhic victory in 1973 when it embarked on a successful lobby that saw the removal of being gay as part of mental health cases.

Tears for Ebonyi State, By Nwaeze Onu

Tears for Ebonyi State, By Nwaeze Onu Power in the hands of a weak man is a dangerous thing. With power, he soon believes he is what he is not.
