Buhari Scores a Hat-trick with June 12

Arguably, the president Mohammadu Buhari (PMB) declaration of June 12, the infamous day election victory of late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Oluwale Abiola (GCFR) was annulled as Nigeria’s new democracy day has won him accolades even in the camp of his critics.

The Truth About Buhari’s “Lazy” Nigerian Youths

I feel so distanced from the anger many Nigerian youths are venting on President Mohammadu Buhari on his comment allegedly targeted at Nigerian youths. He was without ethnic bias (which is rare) and no time frame in his assertion.

The Dapchi debacle where at least 105 girls were abducted in Yobe State has reminiscence of Chibok experience. The nation is yet to get out of the Chobok nightmare, now this. Sadly, security issues in the northeast get messier each time government tries to give itself a pat on the back.

Bashing Buhari’s Change Against a Collapsed System

The war on corruption championed by the president Muhammadu Buhari led administration has suffered countless setbacks despite his courage against stacked odds of gluttonous officials, failed institutions and his inability to assert. A combination of crafty few, faulty institution has indeed battered Buharis change and corruption is winning.

The hand of Afegbua, voice of IBB?

By, Israel A. Ebije The statement allegedly issued by former military president Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) through his spokesman Kassim Afegbua has generated humongous reactions not on account of its content but the drama surrounding it’s immediate rebuttal by the former leader. The content of IBB’s denial, however, leave many in doubt over its authenticity as the general addresses […]

Marauding Herders: When the day of the oppressed dawn

Buhari’s Health Myth and Nigerians story Telling Power

Using Buhari ailment to stir up ethno-religious genocide

There is a piece circulating on the cyberspace titled; “President Muhammadu Buhari the Strongest man in Africa”. The author of the drivel alleged albeit tacitly how President Muhammadu Buhari has been poisoned with a category ‘A poison’. The writer said Buhari may have been given a full dose of the poison but was too strong to be felled like former Head of state, Gen. Abacha, and MKO Abiola, acclaimed winner of the June 12 1993 election.
