Dogara’s 10 Sins Of Governor Abubakar, Infantile, Laughable (2)

On the issue of development projects, Dogara has truly lost touch with the reality and blinded by opposition virus. Before voicing his imagination, he could have verified from those his drowning co-travelers that might have visited their localities recently for their usual deceit. To help him out of ignorance, within the state he claims, the…

Local Govts: Supreme Court To The Rescue

Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) is currently on a nationwide sensitisation campaign to drum up support for local government autonomy. That, in our view, is a wasteful exercise because the Supreme Court has already taken a decision on the matter. We recall our editorial on that apex court’s decision with the above caption….

That Nigeria has both abundant material and human resources required to make her a great country is not contestable. And that through a cruel conspiracy of both centrifugal and centripetal forces, engineered principally by renegade elements, the nation has remained virtually stagnant is not in doubt either. Little wonder, Prof. Sola Adeyeye once said that:…

PDP, Still Bent On Self-annihilation

It is amazing that the camps, or is it factions, of Ali Modu Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi are bent on squeezing life out of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a gladiatorial conflict that has, at the moment, no winner in sight. In its 16 years of control of the government at the centre, the…
