The Presidency on Sunday described former governor of Jigawa State Alh Sule Lamido as intellectually and morally bankrupt for daring to criticize President Buhari's ongoing anti-corruption war. Talking of moral bankruptcy the Presidency should remember the saying that "those in glass houses should not throw stones"! A person who led coup d'etat against a democratically elected government of Nigeria has no moral ground to accuse anyone of moral bankruptcy. According to our laws, the Constitution to be precise, the Federal Republic of Nigeria shall not be governed, nor shall any person or group of persons take control of the Government…
By section 24 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), it is the duty of every Nigerian to make positive and useful contributions to the advancement, progress and well-being of the community where he resides. The anti-corruption campaigns of the present administration will be strengthened when we become more interested in budget monitoring. The governor Yahaya Bello led administration has not been fair to the good people of Kogi State simply because we have neglected our responsibility of monitoring the budgetary allocation and provisions of the government. From this pull-out from the 2017 budget of…

Democracy is built on the equality of citizens; the freedom of these citizens to associate with one another for the realisation of their ideals and the defence and promotion of their interests; and the freedom of these citizens to choose between the different political platforms of various political parties and candidates, and see to the actualisation of the platforms they have voted for, if their choices win. This is only possible if the citizens are well informed about their country, their governments, their circumstances and the various interests contending in the various parties. To put all this in a very…
Real estate investment is a great avenue to be taken, in boosting a nations economy, as it has developed individuals, cooperate institutions and Nations on different levels. Real estate investment has developed the economy and it is pertinent that real estate market in Nigeria can also be a veritable tool for the positive transformation of the Nigerian economy. Real estate firms and estate developers are on the rise; although there are challenges that have impeded the steady growth of the real estate sector in Nigeria; it still with no doubt in mind remains a viable sector in the growth of…
Absolute power loves to come in the benign habiliment of a profound understatement. When General Yakubu Gowon came to power after the coup of July 29, 1966, he was called the Supreme Commander and Head of the Federal Military Government. Yet his supremacy was heavily contested and the military government was deeply divided. Then the soldiers went to Ghana under the auspices of the new military ruler of that country and they met in Aburi. From that point on, Gowon took on the title of Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces. Yet with this new sober…
Social media usage has been met with mixed feelings, especially in the Nigerian society. There have been calls to establish a working framework where its use can be regulated. There are schools of thought who believe that it is an extension of the freedom of speech of every individual. At the centre of these two opposing ideas, are people who neither have access nor the capacity to fully appreciate the essence of social media tools. There have been a plethora of arguments on the assumed benefits of social media usage. Typically in every argument, there are people that will insist…
''I hear say our Sai Baba don return from Turkey” “Did you hope that he would stay there permanently? He went for the D-8 meeting, and he is bound to return.” “D-8 meeting. I have been thinking about it. We are supposed to be a secular country but internationally, we have continued to engage with Muslim countries. We belong to the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) and also the D-8. Internationally, we are effectively a Muslim country.” “I don’t think so.
