Why Ibori’s release from prison was celebrated, By Tony Eluemunor Mr Simon Kolawole’s ‘The Welcome Party for Ibori’ (THISDAY Sunday 25th December 2016), broached several topics and reached several wrong conclusions, as he condemned the widespread celebrations when Ibori exited UK jail.

The Improbable Hero, By Abdulrazaq Magaji

The Improbable Hero, By Abdulrazaq Magaji It’s a little over18 months since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office.

This is a hard take, even though it serves to confirm Nigerians’ legendary short...... more

Kudos to Federal Government for paying 81 months pension arrears, By Kelvin Adegbenga

Kudos to Federal Government for paying 81 months pension arrears, By Kelvin Adegbenga One would think that after years of service to the government, retirees should have some pension to live on.

Murder of Kano Trader, Bridget: Where’s the justice Buhari promised?

Murder of Kano Trader, Bridget: Where’s the justice Buhari promised? Indeed, for any keen observer of governance in post-colonial Africa, Nigeria must be a very depressing address.
