Aisha Buhari: The Lioness of Nigeria

Aisha Buhari, wife of the President has roared and there has been a lot of scattering in London, in apparent reaction to the Hyenas and Jackals, madam Aisha had finally and firmly put her feet in the right boots and is stamping her authority. It appears likes the juju could not cross the water. Impeccable sources in the presidency say it was the wife of the president who organised the recent visit of both the APC and the PDP governors to see President Buhari in London, in apparent defiance to…

Reuben Abati, 82 Chibok Girls

“E ku amojuba awon 82 Chibok girls, o” “What is that supposed to mean in plain English? You better watch your tongue. It will be politically incorrect and suicidal to start making a joke out of something that serious.” “Where is the joke?” “In your tone. I know you when you want to start your mischief.” “I am a born-again Christian” “I know. Like Stephanie Otobo telling Apostle Suleiman that she is born-again after maligning the man’s reputation. Don’t just say anything until you have confessed your sins. Confess. Confess,…

Igbokwe Accuses Oyegun of Planning to Wreck APC

By Joe Igbokwe The APC chairman has proven to be a most unique man.  John Oyegun’s reply to what we have revealed about his malfeasant handling of the Ondo primaries shows but one thing: he has decided that he is better served by continuing his romance with misdirection and falsehood.While these slick tools may be useful to Oyegun’s ulterior designs, they ill suit the interests of the APC and of the electorate which the party is meant to serve. In our initial submission, we warned that Oyegun is willing to…

“Aisha Buhari and That BBC Interview”

By Reuben Abati Public communication is one of the most delicate challenges that people in public life face, either in the corporate or the public sector. Many people suddenly find themselves in high places, and they become a source of news, a potential interview subject, and they get chased around by journalists and other media figures who want a story, in fact, not just a story, but a scoop. I used to explain in communication coaching classes and to the bosses whose media I managed, at one point or the…

10 Rules for Surviving the Recession

Nearly every business has felt an impact from the recession. There has been no escaping. The root causes were universal and had a domino effect. Some small-business owners believe they’ve seen the bottom and they are surviving — they are OK and they expect to persevere with modest adjustments. These small-business owners are kidding themselves. The bottom has not been reached, and it will be a long slide until it does. We are in for a five- to 10-year disaster. Defeat the Downturn  During such times, it’s easy to panic….

ARREST OF JUDGES: Let the Hangmen Feel the Noose of their Rope!

By Bolaji Fakeye If Judges are found with millions in their homes when they are civil servants then we are in trouble. Judges ought to be more trusted than even politicians but because Lawyers and Judges have these thieves on their clientele lists then it is a case of the proverbial “animal farm” where the pigs who ought to lead the farm revolution are now no different from the corrupting humans. These funds from bribery and graft will not have been in the house if the money were legally earned,…

Zambia 1 – Nigeria 2: My Opinion

By Lanre Akinola It’s been sometime now that Nigerian super Eagles secured and away win in a competitive game, more importantly, scoring two goals. On the basis of this, the result of this match is heart warming. That said, I wish to review the match very briefly: Our first half performance was good, the attack line did very well closing down the defence line of Zambia and denying them the chance to build from the rear. The interplay between the forward player was great and the two goals wonderful. I…

“The Change Agents who Promised a Revolution are in Disarray” -Abati

The various reactions on Independence Day yesterday can only compel us to ask one question: what does Nigeria mean to you or me? I had written a piece on Friday, September 30, in which I advised that Nigerians should embrace hope rather than despair and that in the long run, it shall be well with our country. I also recommended as part of the celebration, Timi Dakolo’s soul-inspiring and masterly song, ‘Great Nation’, hoping that special attention will be paid to its touching lyrics. But the reactions to my interventions…

Child-Upbringing and the Role of the Society

by Adebola Emmanuel In a closed room aired with a party atmosphere, he held the girl’s waist with his tender hands and bent his own waist so that his manhood would go directly into the bottom of this little girl, who is about his age. Armed with a “bump short”, the little girl rolled her behind perpetually for minutes on the boy’s manhood, dancing to a party beat. While some people around them simply cheered and applauded these lads, the adults there went extra miles to even video the act…
