Femi Adesina: A Witness In The Court Of Posterity By Dr Bolaji O. Akinyemi

There are majorly three Femis in the Nigeria media space none of who can be ignored.This clarification is however decided by the spectacular with which we view them. The first in line, far from being a journalist even though he bestrides this space like a colossus, is none other than Femi Fani Kayode who it must be said has made his contributions to the society within the propensity of all mortals.  The other is Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker, House of Representatives. Like the first Femi, the law profession is a ground…

A Govt That Loves Cows More Than Its Citizens, By Akinrinlola Olumide

There is a government in West Africa that loves cows more than its citizens. It is no other than the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the All Progressives Congress. The love for cows and herdsmen by the Buhari regime knows no bound. While this is understood, because the Nigerian President is a proud cattle farmer, who hails from the Fulani extraction who are predominantly pastoral farmers and cattle dealers, it is not yet clear why some state governors are…

Another Blasted Kidnapping Fulani Herdsman, By Hannatu Musawa

“Try not to mess this one up,” Tambawalle thought to himself. In the last month, he had attempted to do three operations, but none of them were successful. It was important for him to succeed in the operation he was presently on because otherwise the members of his gang would look at him as weak. He could tell that the attitudes of those around him had changed. There was a kind of disdain thrown his way. By way of shifty looks and off turning body gestures, members of the gang…

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi For Beginners By Owei Lakemfa

The abduction of 317 school girls of the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, last Friday, February 26 is even more tragic because we as parents and adults once again failed to protect the Nigerian child. It is distressing that this is the fourth mass abduction of children in their schools within three months: Katsina, Kankara, Kagara, and now Jangebe.  All these children have done is to be caught in their dilapidated and rundown schools in their pursuit of priceless education which after 60 years of independence we have…

Politics And The Court of Appeal By Reuben Abati

It is most unfortunate that the proposed appointment of new judges for Nigeria’s Court of Appeal has been controversial since the announcement of a shortlist in December 2020. The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem has now found herself in an uncomfortable situation where she has to defend the integrity of her Court and the process that led to the emergence of a list of 20 preferred candidates and a list of additional 20 reserved candidates. To have the judiciary dragged into the mud of Nigerian politics…

Food Blockade Of South By North—Not In Nigeria’s Best Interest By Fredrick Nwabufo

No region in Nigeria is a self-sufficient archipelago. None is more fortunate in human and material assets than the other. Each region has its unique quality and contributes a consequential substance to Nigeria. None is greater than the other. We are like geopolitical sextuplets sharing one umbilical cord – nourished and oxygenated by mother Nigeria. It is delusive to assume any of the regions solely underpins the Nigeria infrastructure.  The north feeds the nation, and the south contributes in commerce and revenue generation. We are one concentric circle, holding each…

What Does Adeboye Think of Apostle Suleiman? By Bamidele Johnson

Over a decade ago, a reporter asked Pastor EA Adeboye, arguably the Most Valuable Player (MVP) on the Nigerian Pentecostal landscape, what he thought of Prophets TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations and Samson Ayorinde of the World Evangelism Bible Church. Both men, along with Christ Embassy’s Chris Oyakhilome, were-and still are-deemed bad news by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) of which Adeboye remains a prominent member. The reporter, who was of The Nation titles, wanted to know why the three men were frozen out of…

The Trouble With Several Igboho’s And A Nation For Hire By Adebayo Raphael

If this were the era of colonial adventures, perhaps now would be what colonialists would describe as a ‘good time’ to colonize – or recolonize Nigeria. Baleful as that may sound, such would be the fate of this giant ungoverned territory; if there were to be another daredevil mix of Goldie Taubman and Frederick Lugard. Think of Nigeria as a coffee shop with a high prospect of becoming the only of its kind with the best cappuccino or mocha any coffee lover could dream of – operating under the command…

Failed Abduction Of Sunday Igboho By Buhari Is Call To Arms… Bring It On! By Bayo Oluwasanmi

The failed abduction of Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho by General Muhammadu Buhari was expected. Buhari and his Fulani terrorists are terrorizing Yorubas on all fronts.  Fulani terrorists raped our women. They abducted our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. They maimed and killed our farmers. They drove our families from their homes and farms. They uprooted their livelihoods. Buhari is not only unresponsive to carnage perpetrated by Fulani terrorists. He’s behind the killings of Yorubas by Fulani terrorists.   We have borne the outrages without retaliation. We are being treated…

#FREEDAWISU: Is Nigeria Back To The Dark Days Of Military Dictatorship? By Seun Awogbenle

Look, if before now, you needed any more evidence to accept that Nigeria has lost all pretence to democracy at least under President Muhammadu Buhari’s ruling government, then look no further, yesterday’s arrest of Tanko Yakassai popularly known as Dawisu, who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and Media aide (now sacked by the way) to the Governor of Kano State Abdullahi Ganduje, offers that poignant evidence and reminder. The whereabouts of Dawisu was first declared unknown, following his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari over his…
