1,000 prayer warriors for Aso Rock

1,000 prayer warriors for Aso Rock Normal things do not happen normally in Nigeria. There must always be a “spiritual” side to everything.

Does President Buhari have an animal side?

Does President Buhari have an animal side? “The human side of Buhari”. That is the title of a 55-minute documentary on President Muhammadu Buhari aired on NTA yesterday evening.

Beyond leadership and operationalisation of subsidiarity, By Evaristus Bassey

Beyond leadership and operationalisation of subsidiarity, By Evaristus Bassey Nigeria’s major problem is leadership, poor leadership of course.

The $1bn ‘Christmas’ fund to fight the ‘degraded’ Boko Haram, By ’Fisayo Soyombo

The $1bn ‘Christmas’ fund to fight the ‘degraded’ Boko Haram, By ’Fisayo Soyombo There is something inherently unsettling about the 12 to 18 months preceding an election year, particularly when a sitting president is seeking re-election.

PDP’s golden chance to become Nigeria’s ‘necessary evil’, By ’Fisayo Soyombo We know already that life is filled with ironies, but no one would have imagined that the most important elective convention in the life of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would coincide with the International Anti-Corruption Day.

What is the worth of a Nigerian migrant’s life?

What is the worth of a Nigerian migrant’s life? In April, a former Nigerian public official lost his daughter under questionable circumstances. The young lady’s death was avoidable.
