Contrary to their cooked up tales and dementia induced narratives that he feared arrest and would be immediately incarcerated by...... read more
Atiku: Giving a dog a bad name On November 14, 2018, the Saturday Sun led its front page with the bold headline: "The Atiku Dilemma," with two accompanying riders: 1.

Dozie Ikedife: Chapter ends for 'Ikenga Nnewi,' frank, bold Igbo hero We were devastated when we heard the sad news of the transition to glory of Chief Dr. Dozie Ikedife at the age of 85 years. The late Dr. Ikedife was a man of character and strong convictions. It was at the level of Ohanaeze that some of us began to have...... read more
To Win The War on Terror We Need Opportunities and Jobs In order to defeat terror, Nigeria needs a well thought out anti-terror plan and one thing that must be central to that plan is the buy in of the people because terror can only thrive where there is local support. Take that local support structure away and the terror architecture will...... read more
Buhari, certificate scam & declining plank of integrity It does seem that when a politician is popular people overlook his sins and when he becomes unpopular they want to examine his faults. In 2015, the  Buhari-mania and its mantra of Change would not allow anyone examine the matter of Buhari’s certificate but it does seem that with the turn...... read more
Buhari’s certificate: Why PDP court option is good In a well-tailored editorial by, of Sunday, October 28, 2018, so many reasons were adduced why the issue of the non-presentation of the educational certificates of President Muhammadu Buhari, must not be allowed to die a natural death. I stand by that fulsome position. The online newspaper, which has now...... read more
Peter Obi as Atiku’s joker In 1993, I was on the entourage of the late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola to the palace of the Odezuligbo Nike, the late Igwe Edward Nnaji. There, I witnessed a very interesting, but intriguing development, which, not only went to a great extent to emphasise a major aspect of...... read more
How vested interests are tearing APC Zamfara apart The crises that characterised the conduct of all the primaries of the All progressives Congress, (APC), to produce governorship, national assembly and state assembly candidates for the scheduled 2019 election should worry all lovers of democracy in Nigeria and beyond.   It is at best a mockery of party democratic processes...... read more
Why Nigeria must clamour for Obi at this time Mr. Peter Obi, is an extremely wealthy man. Imagine what you would be counting to be listed among the 8,000 richest men in the world out of the 7.6billion population spread across the 176 countries. That will bring you to a closer reality as to his profile, in terms of personal...... read more
Missing General: My 28 hours behind bars - Soldiers detain PUNCH Correspondent, 36 others Whenever it said that Journalists are Endangered Species, I now know that the statement is just a euphemism. The truth is that Journalists are always in war zones. And to effectively practise in a very dangerous zone like Plateau State demands prayers. From what I have seen and reported since I...... read more
Sanwo-Olu, the coming of Tinubu’s boy With Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s endorsement of his preferred candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, it was a given that Governor Akinwumi Ambode had not only lost the second term governorship ticket, he was also on his way out of political relevance.
