July 3, 2020 Abdulhamid Yahuza 0

A few years ago I watched a documentary on almajiri, in which one of the boys, asked about his future ambition, curiously replied that he wanted to become the governor of his state. The magnanimity of this audacious hope quickly reminded me of former U.S President, Barak Obama’s self-description in his book: ‘the Audacity of Hope’ where he demonstrated how Read More

The best way to end banditry in Mr. President’s state

June 24, 2020 Editorial IV 0

First step is to arm the residents of the frontline villages, from Sabuwa to Jibia, where these bandits always harass and pass through into the hinterland. The only reason why these bandits kill our people like chickens is because my people possess nor arm nor any means of defending themselves equivalent to what the bandits carry. If we have close Read More

The general public, especially the unemployed youths are thrilled by any newspaper headline expressing that one university or another sacks her visiting lecturers/contract staff, thinking that a vacancy has opened up for them.

Before we drift to a Gestapo state

June 21, 2020 Editorial IV 0

Democracy epitomises freedom of speech, opinion, perception, and association. It is a hard earned gain for Nigeria.

Femi Adesina’s blunder

June 18, 2020 Editorial III 0

Knowledgeable people often make pronouncements which they, and those listening, take to be the gospel truth by virtue of the fact that they said it.

The agony of rape
