    For Tinubu’s eyes only, By Dan Agbese

    This is the interregnum, the period between an out-going administration and its in-coming successor when there is usually a feeling of both hollowness and animated anticipation. It is not an idle period. This is the period during which we listen keenly to every word that falls from the mouth of the president-elect. Those words, uttered in jest or seriousness, could…

    Yoruba! What is to be done? By Bámidélé Adémólá-Olátéjú

    The basis of any review must accept that for the Yoruba, “the fault lies not in our stars, but in ourselves”. Intellectual honesty dictates this as the starting point. Raising other ethnic groups as bogeymen completely misses the point. It is important for us to go back to the drawing board and put regional integration at the heart of the…

    Nigeria no longer colony of United Kingdom, By Femi Fani-Kayode

    These are my personal views and I am constrained to express them given the fact that one Ben Llwelyn-Jones, a misguided, mischievous and clearly unlettered Englander who does not know his place, threw away all caution and mentioned my name in his inglorious commentary. I would advise this Ben, who I am told is the Deputy High Commissioner of the…

    Let us learn the language of NYSC, By Kunle Awosiyan

    One thing that the National Youth Service Corps has not reviewed since its creation is the Nigerian languages handbook, instead it has kept on improving on it. It is one of the handbooks it gives to corps members at the orientation camp that has helped to integrate our youths to learn about other people’s culture. It was in Awgu NYSC…

    Sirika’s selfish moves to concession airports, By Yemi Adebowale

    Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika has spent almost all his eight years in office implementing selfish agendas. Almost everything in the Nigerian aviation industry revolves around Sirika and his interest. This minister cares less about the interest of the larger Nigerian society. It is usually about Sirika’s pocket. This is why he has been pursuing the concession of Nigeria’s four…

    Ogun guber election: A call for sober reflection by Kareem Abdul

    The evergreen submission of the 35th American President, J.F. Kennedy, invariably speaks volume of political indices that shaped the governorship election of March 18, 2023 in Ogun State. Kennedy observed that “Those who refused to participate in the politics of their environment end up being governed by their inferiors.” The above clearly explains the saturated political climate of Ogun State,…

    A word to the dogs of opposition, By Femi Fani-Kayode

    As a consequence of the events of the last few days I am constrained to say that, like a rabid and mad dog that is foaming at the mouth, the Nigerian opposition, represented by the followers of Atiku Abubakar (Atikulators) and the followers of Peter Obi (Obidients), have lost control of their senses. They need to get a grip before…

    To the Church in Nigeria, By Olu Onemola

    To the Church in Nigeria, I hope that this letter will find you well and that you will receive its message with open hearts and minds. Over the past few weeks, Nigeria has witnessed what I choose to describe as a subtle pause in our rowdy history. From the twenty-fifth day of February, when millions trooped out to cast their…
