Buhari, certificate scam & declining plank of integrity

Buhari, certificate scam & declining plank of integrity

It does seem that when a politician is popular people overlook his sins and when he becomes unpopular they want to examine his faults. In 2015, the Buhari-mania and its mantra of Change would not allow anyone examine the matter of Buhari’s certificate but it does seem that with the turn of events, those who […]

‘YORUBA: TIME TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER

This week, I was prepared to write on one of those ‘national topics’ as we often do when I received a post on ‘whether Ondo State is jinxed,’ forwarded by one of my big brothers, Mr. Eric Teniola, who hails from Ondo state.

The Election Result They Want In Osun

If the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had its way, its candidate in Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, would have been declared governor that day. The party is so upset with the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the election inconclusive, that it has threatened dire consequences should the […]

Kemi Adeosun’s forged certificate: Matters arising

Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, the former Finance Minister, came highly recommended with outstanding qualifications from highly regarded institutions in the UK. Though some believed that the schools were not top notch and that she didn’t have enough exposure for the post of Finance Minister. Of course, Nigerians being lovers of everything and anything foreign, that also […]
