Tobi Amusan, Ozuah and history behind the N1.14b vehicles for Niger By Festus Adedayo 

To understand the profligacy, indiscretion and misplaced priority in the purchase of N1.14 billion ($2.7 million) –worth of 10 luxury vehicles by the Muhammadu Buhari government for neighbouring Niger Republic, ostensibly to shore up that country’s security, at a time when there is excruciating hunger in the land and terrorists are probably a mile away from the Aso Villa seat of government, you have to go way back to the year 1972 or so, to the reply of the late president of Niger Republic, Ahmadu Diori, when asked why Niger…

The Universal Basic Education Commission UBEC is a body charged statutorily with the management of public primary and junior secondary schools, as well as the regulatory roles and curriculum development of private schools in that category in Nigeria.   Inspite of its statutory roles , the need to be acquainted with the numbers of public and private schools in that category will no doubt ease the process of administration and regulations of its policies and programs.   Giving the constitutional roles, it behoves on the leadership of the agency under…

An agenda for national rebirth (1), by Hassan Gimba

“The greatest patriotism is to tell your country when it is behaving dishonourably, foolishly, viciously.” ― Julian Barnes, Flaubert’s Parrot Till the rivers run dry and the world ceases to exist, problems shall never end. Problems became part of man the moment he took a bite of that apple and was banished to earth to come and find the solution that would take him back.

THE DEATH WISH IN SAM OMATSEYE’S OBITUARY  By Law Mefor

44An obituary is for the dead, not for the living. So, no matter how one looks at Sam Omatseye’s ‘Obi-tuary’ on Peter Obi and the movement his entry into the 2023 presidential race has become, it is all about a death wish. It rhymes with nothing else. Yes, death for the Peter Obi movement and possibly for its progenitor, Peter Obi himself is Omatseye’s underlying deep psychological wish. To clear the doubts, a death wish is a desire, often unconscious, for the death of another person, toward whom one has…

Four years…
