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.

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. I do not feel...... read more
Ambode: This war must be won How many people have seen the report currently going viral in the social media, showing the debt profiles of the 36 states in Nigeria?

My dear President, let your People go Your Excellency, it is with every sense of love and patriotism that I have decided to write you again despite the frustration of knowing that you may not hearken to my sincere advice to you, as I have written to plead with you on several occasions, but my entreaties have been...... read more
PMB at ICC: Proud to be Nigerian I've seen him address the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Seen him speak at AU (African Union) summits.

Filling the Gap In 2019 Georges Benjamin Clemenceau came to power in France in 1917. That was when the First World War was full blown. But how did the world war start? Very simple!

Money politics and lessons from Ekiti governorship election I started my independent life by training as a reputation manager, so I probably understand public perception management and behavioural effects in a manner that would escape a casual observer.  Nigerians have a way of designing stories to suit their narrative ignoring the lessons therein.
