Buhari owes Shiites justice, not massacre

Even in its twilight, the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration remains impenetrable to the simple logic that democracy is leavened by the disparateness of opinions.




It is in epochs of heightened divergence of opinions that sometimes spawn crises and tend to unspool the state that the genius of a great leader is given stellar expression.

The man or woman who comes into leadership fully prepared for such near-fatal periods know how to parlay them into opportunities for national development.

Thus, the best leaders are not brewed in epochs when the people luxuriate in ease but when they are confronted with life-threatening crises.

Was the genius of Winston Churchill not unfurled, and thus he became a touchstone of good leadership, because he had Adolf Hitler to prevent from adding Britain to his definitive list of conquered territories? Did Franklin D. Roosevelt not etch his name in the memory of Americans because he had the Great Depression to contend with on behalf of h…

To Supporters of Peter Obi

Everybody that writes about Peter Obi or comes to his defence does so out of conviction.

As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, former Bauchi state governor Mallam Isa Yuguda has dumped the Green Party of Nigeria for the All Progressives Congress, APC.


He defected with about 5000 of his supporters into the ruling party.

This was disclosed to journalists by his former commissioner for Information and chairman Yuguda Alheri Movement, Alhaji Salisu Barau Wakos at a press conference.


Wakos stated that Yuguda’s major decision to defect to the APC was to boost support for President Muhanmadu Buhari’s re-election bid and to ensure that the APC wins the 2019 election.

He said, “I want to declare that from today henceforth, Yuguda is a bonafide card-carrying member of the APC, including all his supporters in Nigeria. The defection is aimed at giving APC maximum support ahead of 2019.”

The movement reiterated that Yuguda’s defection was done after wide consultations with his political allies, stakeholders as w…
