Fagbenle has paid his dues and his candour and humanity shine brighter and brighter. If 70 is the new 60, why should he keep his pledge to go backstage and stay backstage. He should make yet another cameo appearance as “Pundit Emeritus”

There’s nothing wrong with that. There will be those who would say, “The business of the media is to sell space.” Another editor might say, “We’re in the business of publishing news.” While another might respond, “What do you mean? We’re in the business of creating communities.” And yet another editor might say, “You know what, our job is to mirror society.”
Kanu has rallied hundreds of young people to his cause and managed to sell them a fool’s paradise – a promise of heaven on earth, once Biafra is realised
She may well have had her letter of resignation in her bag, but in the end President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t push her over the edge – yet. After many years in politics, Alhassan should know that wrongs might not be counted always, but they’re not easily forgiven.
I was moved to write after watching an excerpt of your first press conference in which you lamented the “unfair” outcome of the ruling, but indicated that you were constrained to abide by the decision of the court
In an interview in the current edition of The Interview, Uwazuruike accused Kanu of working hand-in-glove with security services to destabilise the struggle for Biafra, starting with the forthcoming November 18 governorship election in Anambra State
I have never liked JAMB. Not because I ever attempted to take its exam or failed it. I guess I’m like most Direct Entry students who think JAMB is one of the useless bureaucracies that have robbed universities of their brains.
But that’s a digression. His advice to Buhari is on point and infinitely more sensible than the nonsense of his Kogi State counterpart, Yahaya Bello, who declared a public holiday to mark the President’s return but didn’t know what to do to save even one of the 60 persons that died from abdominal infection in Kogi the same week.
It’s a waste of time getting mad at Jonathan for giving himself a pass mark where voters had failed him. The question Okechukwu should be asking himself is whether the APC government will pass the electoral test that the last government failed, if an election were held today
But Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, appears to know Aloysius a bit. It was the governor who shared the narrative about drugs, dodgy businesses and imported gang warfare
But as long as people, especially politicians, know that they can get away with murder, they will continue to kill
From there, my wife said someone would be on hand to take me home.
I was not expecting her because it was evening. I knew she would be preparing my favourite meal of amala and vegetable soup
Apart from the fact that Falana was a member of the Conference that made the recommendations, he’s a man whose views on any subject cannot be taken lightly.
His Excellency, former Governor of Yobe State and current distinguished Senator for Yobe East Senatorial District, Bukar Abba Ibrahim, confirmed that he was the one taped while having a sex romp with two women in a story published by Saharareporters.
I don’t know the last time Osinbajo spoke with Buhari – assuming he has done so at all – in the last 50 days, but I think it should concern him that the reputation of the government, which he heads even in acting capacity, is unraveling rapidly
War costs more than data plan on a digital device; it’s more than virtual experience on a console. Nigeria’s civil war cost more than one million lives, displaced and disrupted the lives of millions more, and left even a greater number stranded with permanent scars
Before the 2015 general election, Oshiomhole was the only South South governor in the opposition party and some expected that Oshiomhole’s hands might be tied by his geographical kinship with the former president
The NBA is right that eight months is a long time to arrest the judges and yet not file any formal charges against them. But surely these lawyers cannot pretend that a court system that subjects tens of hundreds of other citizens to this same misery should work differently for judges
His fingers are in every pie. His wife, Nkechi, is the only person in Nigeria who has more government portfolios than Babatunde Fashola: she supervises the Ministries of Women Affairs, Works, Health and the Office of the Secretary to the State Government. His son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, is the Chief of Staff, and a government building is named after one of his daughters, Uloma Nwosu. Imo is Okorocha’s chattel
It would be dishonest to pretend that Buhari has reached the mark, but Nigeria is not in the hole it was when he took over
