The Monster Buhari Failed To Destroy By Charles Ofoji

It has now turned out that the monster President Muhammdau Buhari failed to destroy is becoming his nemesis. For a president, who coasted to power on the promise of change, I had watched the inexperience at democratic governance or naivety exhibited by Mr. Buhari when he thought he was boasting, saying

Heresy In The House Of Oduduwa -Pendulum By Dele Momodu

Fellow Nigerians, let me take you on historical excursions today. At this unfortunate time that History is not a compulsory subject in our school curriculum, it is pertinent to educate ourselves properly about our dear beloved nation. For those who may not know, Ile-Ife is the ancestral home of all

Things men wish people understood about them

President Buhari And His Letter Writers – By Dele Momodu

Fellow Nigerians, let me begin by welcoming our dear leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, back home from his medical vacation in London. We have every cause to be thankful to Allah, the Merciful. The Yoruba have a very apt adage for what happened to President Buhari: we should be grateful to

Pius Adesanmi: There is a future for us beyond the Orangutans

Any public figure whose name we fail to agree on will always cause wahala. Evan Enwerem? Evans Enwerem?  James Onanefe Ibori? Onanefe James Ibori? Now we have Hammeed Alli! In a single edition of The Nation Newspaper (boda Sanya Oni, take note) on September 13, 2015, the headline reads “Hamid Ali” while the

Ambode, Fashola and the soul of Lagos By Eniola Opeyemi

SIR: “In our personal ambitions we are individualists. But in our seeking for economic and political progress as a nation, we all go up or else all go down as one people” – Franklin D. Roosevelt I write as a concerned member of the Lagos society, not standing in between but

Apostle Suleman: Adultery In The Pulpit By Bayo Oluwasanmi

The adulterous affair between the founder and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Apostle Johnson Suleman and 23-year old Canadian-based singer Stephanie Otobo has become news staple for many days, so much that it needs no retelling. One of the great epidemics of the Christian Church today is adultery. The plague

Reno Omokri: The true colour of Buhari and El-Rufai

I believe I now know the reason why God allowed President Buhari to come back to power. It was to expose him for who he really is. Not the saint he portrays himself. A so-called anti-corruption crusader who writes letters to cover his corrupt Secretary to the Government of the

I want to go to London to see Buhari – By Reuben Abati

When 15 million plus Nigerians voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 General elections, their expectation was that he would be available to serve them 24/7/365, and that those who fielded him as their candidate had done their home work to avoid what is curiously becoming the Katsina problem

Femi Fani-Kayode: Arrest of Audu Maikori and call to pray for Buhari

Permit me to begin this contribution with an aside. It is only a weak, insecure, paranoid, wicked, heartless, ignorant, lawless and callous government that refuses to identify, apprehend, prosecute and hang the bloodthirsty, psychopathic and murdering Janjaweed Islamist Fulani militants and herdsmen and instead arrests an innocent and accomplished young man


“This is not the time for preaching peace when the enemy is ready to destroy the world. To forgive Islamic terrorists is up to God but to send them to see God is my duty” – President Vladimer Putin. Is there any sane person that disagrees with Putin? Evidently there are

SSS Vs Apostle Suleiman: Let The Truth Be Told By Inibehe Effiong

Unitary federalism and its future in Nigeria- By Tatalo Alamu

In recent times, no phrase or political terminology has been a greater source of pains and perplexity to Nigerians than the notion of unitary federalism. Federalism and all the ancillary benefits that may flow from it  presupposes freely federating units, whereas unitary government suggests entities that have been forcibly brought

Who Wants President Buhari Dead- By Dele Momodu

Fellow Nigerians, please allow me to say wherever two or more Nigerians are gathered these days the topic of discussion must, naturally, dovetail to our dear President’s state of health and the consequential suggestion that our country is ailing as a result. This controversy didn’t start today. I remember how

“Happy New Year, my brother” “What do you mean happy new year, more than two weeks into the New Year. Have I not been in touch with you since January 1?” “But for you the New Year has just started. Your January 1 was not on January 1” “Looks like you have started

Bankers As Crooks, By Bámidélé Adémólá-Olátéjú

The “temporary” forfeiture of $153 million looted funds by the former minister of petroleum, Diezani Allison-Madueke to the federal government, once again points to the felonious nature of Nigerian banks and their executives. It is a crying shame that there are no sacred institutions in Nigeria. Actually, there are no

Femi Fani-Kayode: Nigeria – Give me liberty or death

For those that are troubled, that are grieving, that are suffering, that are deeply concerned and that are in a state of utter despondency and despair about what is happening in our country today and what the future holds, keep hope alive and hear this loud and clear. Many years from

Looking Into The Future With The Eyes Of Faith- Tunde Bakare


What can CBN learn from MMM?- By Enobong Udoh

Paper money or fiat currency is still the greatest innovation conceived by man. Imagine Nigeria being some type of human zoo of sort that still trades by barter. If we import loads of Apple’s iPhone 7, how many truckloads of cattle will northern Nigeria exchange or barrels of oil will

Imperatives Of Ambode’s 813bn Y2017 ‘Golden Jubilee’ Budget

FOR residents in Lagos, the year 2016 was by far a good year. Despite the nationwide economic recession, the State witnessed tremendous growth especially in the areas of infrastructural development and economic growth.

Aregbesola’s 6th Year: Making the Sun Shine On Our Land, By Semiu Okanlawon

In these past six years, the six-point action plan – banishing hunger, unemployment, poverty, functional education, healthy living, promotion of communal peace – have combined to achieve one thing which is George Washington’s “aggregate happiness of the society which is best promoted by the practice of a virtuous policy.” “I have

Beginning of renaissance in the Yoruba region?(1)- By Ropo Sekoni

This column congratulates the governors for waking up after a long slumber spawned by the years of ‘collect and spend’ in a quasi-unitary system of government created between the 1970s and now.    Let’s face it. We cannot continue to pretend that we can deal with the issues confronting our Region and

The second coming of Goodluck Jonathan- By Dele Momodu

Nigeria-US relations and Donald Trump by Reuben Abati

  do not share the view of those who assume that by some kind of miracle, in the shape of electoral-college defections, Hillary Clinton would still, on the strength of winning the popular vote, supplant Donald Trump as US 2016 President-elect. We might as well begin to live with the reality


Let me begin with two clarifications. Aso Villa is not my home, I am just passing through. Even this world is nobody's home, we are just birds of passage. So, let nobody turn up his nose in derision, and say; "he's writing like the landlord of Aso Villa, defending a

Aso Rock demons: Does Abati need help? – By Abimbola Adelakun

Like a number of people out there, I found Dr. Reuben Abati’s article on the “spiritual side” of Aso Rock annoying. Abati, a well-educated man by any standards, held a front-facing office in the most powerful office in Nigeria as recently as 17 months ago before his phone suffered a
