OPINION: Atiku’s Decisions and Wike’s Hypocrisy -by Desmond Okotie

Was I the only one, who read about Governor Nyesom Wike’s “attempted” resignation as South South Campaigns Coordinator as splashed in the front page of Sun Newspaper last Saturday (1st December 2018)? So, Wike too wants to be consulted? What a double standard! As a Christian, I am pretty sure Wike is very familiar with the Bible verse (Luke 6: 38), which says that the measure you give is the measure you receive.

APC And The Spirit of Witchcraft – By Femi Aribisala

Both Christians and Muslims must reject outright the strange spirit that the APC, in its lust for power, has imported into Nigeria.

LIKE 1983 FEDECO AND NPN, LIKE 2019 INEC AND APC: WHY WE SHOULD BE WORRIED -by Samuel Ajayi

Check these out: * Sokoto State had 3.7m in 1979 but by 1983, it had increased to 5.1m. (38.4% increase) * Kano State had an increase of 49%…

Shit and The Sum(mary) Of A Presidency – By Pius Adesanmi

Shit & the Sum(mary) of a Presidency By Pius Adesanmi Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, was in no mood for jokes the other day. In his opinion, the media has done a terrible job covering the unchecked murderous rampage of Fulani herdsmen, particularly the Benue massacres, which he irresponsibly and characteristically downplays as “clashes”. According to him, the media has thus far worsened the situation by using inflammatory language. He is particularly piqued by this line from The Sun: ‘‘President Muhammadu Buhari was the first to endorse the Benue massacre’’. Based…

Unbelievable Suffering In The Land: Is Buhari Even Aware?

By Abba Mahmood There is virtually no part of Nigeria that is peaceful. There is virtually no household that is happy. There is virtually no individual that is not living in fear in Nigeria today. School fees and hospital bills are becoming difficult for most people. Even one square meal is becoming a luxury for most. The value of the Naira against the Dollar is the worst in the history of Nigeria. The cost of fuel, where available, is the highest in the history of this so called oil producing…
