On Monday, July 6, 2020, at the instruction of the Trump White House, the federal Student and Exchange Visitor Program announced that, “The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States.” It added that “Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with…

From Crude Oil To COVID Oil By Gbenro Olajuyigbe

‘Governance is ruled by greed; and corruption has become its tool, our ‘leaders’, its prophets! -Gbenro Olajuyigbe in ‘Why Terror & Grief Grow’ Sixty years after independence and over 50 years after it struck oil on her land, Nigeria still wholesomely export crude oil while importing refined petrol from even countries that have no clues to how oil is explored and exploited. With governments with legendary records of aversion to transparency and accountability, she continues to run on this high track of graft powered economic race to perdition. It is…

July 10 OAU Cult Invasion, A Cry for Justice By Adeola Soetan

Suffice to begin by stating the facts that put Prof Omole and members of his administration’s inner caucus on the spot in the whole cruel murderous saga with this clincher as the first shocker: The Black Axe cultist murderers gained easy access to, and exit from an hitherto well secured campus in the night through the university gates after their bloody mission, and throughout the hour the attack lasted, surprisingly all communications and security gadgets on campus, including walkie – talkies  in all the halls of residence, campus gates and…

The ‘Magularised’ EFCC Has In Its Possession Both Fresh And Dried Skeletons Yet To Be Exhumed By Seyi Oyetunbi

We have lost a nation to “pen rubbers” occupying our public offices. David Cameron, ex-Prime Minister of the UK, rightly said, “If the amount of money stolen in Nigeria was stolen in the UK, the country would cease to exist.” We have by default established a safe haven for criminals who wouldn’t see anything wrong in selling Nigeria for some dollars. Magu is yet another testimony to the fact that this administration is a complete failure in all spheres you may turn to for consolation. The intensity of allegations against…

The Hunter Has Become The Hunted (The Story Of The Attorney-General And EFCC Chairman) By Achike Chude

This is the problem with power. It makes people mad. A man of wisdom once said that: ‘No man is so wise and so good to be given absolute power’. It is because of the corrosive and corruptive influence of power that Baron Dr Montesqui warned people and nations everywhere to beware. Mobutu Seseseko Ngbendu Wa Ba Zanga, the dictator of the Democratic Republic of Congo, did not heed the warning.The butcher of the Central African Republic, Jean Bedel Bokassa, did not listen. Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin…

Let The Church O Satan Be By Adeola Soetan

Demolishing Church of Satan is Ungodly. Let’s Respect people’s fundamental right and freddom of worship. By consensus, it’s agreed that Satan has more followers than God in Nigeria because of corruption, misgovernance, election rigging, electoral violence, vote buying, individual immorality in keeping sidechicks, sidecocks, drinking alcohol (minus cold Trophy and palmwine), womanizing, manizing, embezzlement of church, mosque and shrine fund, bribing of judges, rape, lawyers helping suspects to escape trial, government errant  task  force commercialising crime, nepotism, Abobakus’ selective blindness on governance issues, teachers helping students to cheat, coldroom affairs,…

EFCC: The ‘Mugu’ In Magu! By Ozodinukwe Okenwa

When in 2003 during the Olusegun Obasanjo’s ‘babacracy’ the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was formed genuine hope was raised in many quarters that Nigeria could still be saved from herself; saved from her national endemic corruption index. Three years prior to the establishment of the EFCC the then President Obasanjo had equally inaugurated the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), a less effective sister anti-graft agency.  With the ICPC and the EFCC Obasanjo (though himself enmeshed in high-wire corruption) had sought to wage war against…

Edo State Election: Adams Oshiomhole’s Last Dance By Osahon Pius Airewele

Politics is the choice between the lesser of two evils (George Orwell). It is a settled matter now that Godwin Obaseki and Pastor Ize-Iyamu.aka POI, will present Edo State electorate with a binary choice in the forthcoming gubernatorial elections, both of them arranged under their new party leaders, with renewed and concerting measures in opposition to each other.  The Edo people, like four years ago, are again presented with the same candidates in swapped seats. Winston Churchhill once said: “Some men change their party for the sake of their principles;…

The Trump Complex By Joseph A. Ushie

In the kingdom of the wild, birds found by the roadside a corpse with wings and, believing the deceased was one of their own, they went close to identify the body only to find the corpse with teeth and furs like the rodents’, particularly like the rats’. The birds then sent word to the rats to come pick the dead body of one of their own. When the rats arrived, they found that though the deceased had teeth and furs like theirs, the corpse had wings, unlike the rodents. The…

EFCC New Pick: Buhari Is A Bigot And Nepotist By Bayo Oluwasanmi

President Muhammadu Buhari continues to fester the sore of our historically fragile ethnic divide by his bigotry and nepotism. Since he assumed office, his appalling goal is to pit the North against the South. His motive is for crass political domination. In my piece titled After Magu, Another Muslim Fulani Police Officer Should Head EFCC published in SaharaReporters July 7, 2020, I predicted that another Muslim Fulani will replace Ibrahim Magu as the new EFCC chair.  A satire laden with witty bitter truth, I advised Buhari in the piece that…
