Yoruba Intolerance For Looters Began At Home

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

If Buhari Does Not Kill Corruption It Will Kill Buhari

Wednesday, July 1, 2015
We seem to forget what we hated so much about Buhari and Obasanjo, even under his civilian rule. Buhari may come out even worse if he cannot get his way on corruption.

Monday, June 15, 2015
There are those of us that have never had Federal or State scholarships but are still grateful for the discipline instilled in us in primary and secondary schools. So when people say those that want Nigeria to exist as a Country are members of the looters club, they are dead wrong. We just cannot im ...

Tinubu & Saraki Palaver Deep-rooted In Polity

Saturday, June 13, 2015
Where else would incorrigible crooks like Saraki and Tinubu command more political clout but in Nigeria? Buhari has work to do and nobody should envy him especially with these two types of people in control of the new political landscape. Like it or not, they have followers and each is highly respec ...
