Nasir el-Rufai and the question of mediocrity -By Sonala Olumhense

  According to Ayo Ademokoya’s news story which circulated widely on social media, Mrs Foluke Joseph, the 41-year-old mother of three was murdered by her 11-year-old housemaid. The story is drenched in highly charged emotions, severe shallowness, biblical references, and unrestrained finger-pointing which only serves to deflect attention from the true cause of Mrs Joseph’s […]

  Smarting in the pains of Nigerians, thoroughly traumatized and blitzed by awful threatening insecurity; further buoyed by a conviction in his capacity to salvage a battered and sick nation, President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) set out on a reformation and redemption mission.

CUPS – Citizens United for Peace and Stability, is everything but what it claims to be because nothing from its antecedents hints at unity and neither has it shown any propensity for peace or stability.

  For Dino Melaye, that rambunctious and swashbuckling senator from Kogi State, the cloud still looks ominous. For someone who relishes hugging the limelight, what he is passing through presently bodes a fatal dent on that raunchy life. Melaye is besieged. He is beleaguered. He is battered.
