2015: BUHARI AND THE BURDEN OF EXPECTATIONS, BY DELE MOMODU||Buhari’s double-edged sword

Buhari.

PENDULUM BY DELE MOMODU Fellow Nigerians, let me confess that I do not envy General Muhammadu Buhari at this moment. I will explain what I mean very shortly and briefly.

President Goodluck Jonathan

Why is President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party afraid of elections? After forcing the elections to be rescheduled to this month, they are feverishly plotting again to postpone it or scuttle the democratic process altogether. Why has the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, who was handsomely beholden […]

PVCs que

Taking liberties with facts is in the province of political office holders, political parties and agency bureaucrats.

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

Editorial: NO to Jonathan’s Neo-Fascist Presidency; Agbaje as the forerunner of a script blackmailing Nigeria into interim government

Education Under Jonathan: The Good, The Bad, The Secrets

When Jimi Agbaje, the PDP Governorship candidate in Lagos State declared that the Niger Delta would take back its oil if Goodluck Jonathan loses the presidential election, little was it known that he was the forerunner of a script being hatched by the Jonathan Presidency where his continuous stay in power is hinged on either […]

Campaign clowns, zonal zealots and partisan priests (1) By Segun Gbadegesin

ISSUES-IN-THE-NEWS

Election seasons never disappoint. There is always something entertaining or distressing, some inspiring words that rise above the fray or some gutter language that defies logic and decency. There are admirable efforts to build bridges and unify, just as there are rabble-rousing charlatans on behalf of maintaining the fault lines and divisions of ethnicity and […]
