However, the union is over a hundred years whereas the outcome of it are civil war,nepotism, killings, inter religion crisis among others,which brought the populace severe and unsustainable life style.

“In all our previous engagements with northern and southeastern leaders, we all came to the consensus that Nigeria is stronger and better together, and that these hate-filled and divisive rhetoric and agitations are unjustifiable, unacceptable and often times illegal. All of us have however agreed that our nation must
remain one. I think that…[Read more]
Restructuring is not a choice at this moment in history for Nigeria, it is the ONLY way. I have been an advocate of this over the years. This present marriage of convince can’t work. People

restored if the federal government yields to the incessant…[Read more]

quite young but spoiled the opportunity by the ethnic and religious kites flown then. The old brigade of NIgerian politics are fully in charge being the youths of the…[Read more]
Former vice-presidential candidate of the
defunct Congress for Progressive Change, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has blamed the political terrain of Nigeria for the choice of an elderly president, noting that France’s recent election of 39-year-
old Emmanuel Macron as president was
indicative of a global paradigm shift.
Bakare said, “Nigeria needs an…[Read more]

Adopting the 2014 confab report will only bring a temporary solution to ethnic agitations in Nigeria.
It will go a long way…… What do you think will be the result if all Nigerians become hungry and thirsty than panting like a hart lost in the Sands of hot Sahara? What do you think if the West,
south, East and North drop their differences like…[Read more]

The political class doesn’t bother about ingenuity in solving problems that would benefit the teeming populace. Both visitors to the varsity should bury their heads (without thinking caps) in shame. The # 1b should be channelled into fixing any infrastructural deficit in the school and not to pay salaries.
Acting President Oshinbajo is handling the volatile issues of secession threats with uncommon wisdom in the absence of his principal.

scrutinising the reports of the last…[Read more]
