The confidence of the electorate had been massively buoyed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s, proactive adoption of technology to […]
Let us vote wisely!
TOMORROW, Saturday, February 25, 2023, is upon us as a nation. Barring any last-minute force majeure, Nigerian eligible voters with their valid Permanent Voter’s Cards, PVCs, will file out to vote for a new President.

INEC and the scourge of underage voters
THE Plateau State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Oliver Tersoo Agundu’s recent assertion that the Commission has “completely taken care of” the scourge of underage voters is a statement most Nigerians may take with a pinch of salt. With the presidential election just about 48 hours away, there is no surefire way of ascertaining how true […]
Buhari’s election security assurance
“I urge every citizen, therefore, to go out to vote for their candidates of choice without fear because security shall be provided and your vote shall count.” IN ordinary times, the above statement by Muhammadu Buhari, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, would not be taken seriously because Nigerians have seen a […]
Buhari’s firm defence of Naira policy
PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has continued to surprise his critics and well-meaning Nigerians with his no-nonsense stance towards the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN’s, Naira redesign/cash swap policy and commitment to a free, fair and credible election without executive interference.

Aviation sector as essential service
THERE is a protracted controversy in the aviation industry over the declaration of it as an essential service sector. This is mainly because of the lack of trust between the employer/regulatory groups and their workers’ unions. In September 2022, that coalition of aviation workers’ unions, made up of the National Union of Air Transport Employees, […]
Arson attacks on INEC facilities
THE violence which followed the EndSARS protests of October 2020, culminated in systematic attacks on facilities of the Nigeria Police and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, by hoodlums who were dubiously dubbed “unknown gunmen”. Between October 2020 and now, no less than 15 INEC offices have been hit, particularly in the South-East, South-South and […]
Dousing ‘emir’ of Aba controversy
AS if Nigeria was not already overburdened by ethno-religious crises, evil-minded and unpatriotic Nigerians are still looking for ways of exacerbating social disharmony in the nation. They are coming up with schemes which are bound to create avoidable conflicts and possibly bloodshed. The highly-provocative news of an alleged impending plan to install one Shehu Bello […]
Buhari’s proactive transition plan
IF there is anything history cannot deny Muhammadu Buhari of as Nigeria’s leader, it is his firm commitment to one of the most honourable transitional plans we have seen since 1999.
