Buhari doesn't pretend, they pretend for him!

I owe a lot to The Guardian. The Flagship of Nigerian journalism to me is not just a claim, but a reality. What I learnt in the Mass Comm classrooms, is only, but a fraction of what The Guardian Institution - the real institution taught me....

The consequences of blood

Destroy this Magu, another Magu will rise

On this particular day, I was sitting, tucked away in a corner of the main lobby of Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, nursing the last glass of my beer like a baby and arguing with my conscience whether I should ask for another. I didn’t understand why I...
