By Jude Ndukwe Wednesday, 15th of March was the day Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was hoping to have his appointment confirmed by the much vilified Nigerian Senate after having been rejected the first time over a report written against him and sent to the Upper Chamber […]
Permit me to begin this contribution with an aside. The barbarians that launched a terror attack in Westminster, London yesterday in which four people were killed and many more injured are the same type of people that attacked and beheaded the sons and daughters of Ile Ife in their own homes and on their own land earlier this month.

By Fani-Kayode Retired Colonel Hameed Ali, the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, is a proud and stubborn man. His disdain for others and insufferable arrogance is not only vexatious to the spirit but also downright nauseating. Someone should remind him that the Holy Bible says “the Lord resists the proud and exalts the […]
Read Part 1: The Hausa Fulani, The Yoruba and the Slaughter In Ile-Ife, By Fani-Kayode I used to love and respect Governor Aregbesola even though we belong to different political parties.

By Jude Ndukwe Let it be stated from the outset that this piece is being written in memory of a certain Okanga Agila, who, in penning his calligraphic gibberish on the subject and against Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, betrayed the mental comatose his acephalous entity is constantly subjected to owing to the torture suffered from being […]
Alright, enough of Stephanie Otobo and Apostle Suleman. Both of them engaged in an adult stuff and so what? They are consenting adults and whatever happened is not new. Apostle Suleman is human, he may be a pastor but he has the same blood flowing in those men cheating on their wives.. Stephanie, you are […]

The truth is that the unconscionable oppressors that constitute the Nigerian ruling elite and political class and those at the top never see things clearly until the explosion comes. More often or not they are intoxicated by the opium of power, they become deluded, they lose touch with reality and they are blinded by the […]
By Jude Ndukwe A namby-pamby London-based newspaper that goes by its appropriate name, “Observer”, falsely observed that former President Goodluck Jonathan purportedly rejected an offer from the British government to help rescue the abducted Chibok girls during the Jonathan administration.
