APC & The North Eastern Question

We’ve come to learn of new terms and techniques from modern day Nigerian politics — place holder, statutory delegates and other features occasioned by the new electoral act controversy, have made 2023 polls one of the most keenly contested elections in our recent history. The most intriguing primary elections were held by the most powerful […]

Tricks of a grass cutter.

When you zone the Presidency to the North or to the South, you would be making sense; so would you be, if you further zone it to a segment of the North, i.e North Central or North East, or South West and South East. Federal character is embedded in our constitution and there may as […]

When Bourdillion roared.

Over and over, I’ve heard Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu being referred to as the Lion of Bourdillion.

Tinubu’s Presidential ambition […]

Celebrating Kogunan Katagum at 50!

These are quite perilous times, where our political landscape is barren from leadership that truly exemplifies transparency and accountability. Integrity as a main trait, in the characters that gun for the highest office in the land, is particularly missing; and what we can hope for at the most, is a patriotic Nigerian, who has the […]
