Last week, I reminded President Muhammadu Buhari that the two months within which his All Progressives Congress (APC) promised to fix the Boko Haram malaise had elapsed. But much as I got plaudits for that
Finally, the House of Representatives yesterday conjured a way to make Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila Majority Leader. I’m happy for him – and for his backers too.
As you’re reading this, President Muhammadu Buhari would probably have returned from his four-day working visit to the United States of America where he, among other things, probably consulted on who and who should make his cabinet.
ON July 9th, 2015, Sule Lamido, immediate past governor of Jigawa State was docked on a 28-count charge of alleged corruption and related offences.
After 40 days and 40 nights (it’s actually 39 days) on the saddle, President Muhammadu Buhari has performed his first miracle: He has conjured a mind-boggling N414 billion out of an otherwise ‘empty treasury’.
I always like to look at the brighter side of things. That is why, unlike many Nigerians, I’m neither appalled, nor alarmed at what is going on at the National Assembly. In fact, if you asked me, I would say the 8th Assembly got off to a flying start: Flying kicks, flying chairs, flying punches, flying slaps and flying Babanriga, skirts and wrappers.
A few days before President Muhammadu Buhari travelled to ‘Western Germany’, where he held his now-very-famous talks with that country’s ‘President Michelle’, I was also in Berlin (for a less altruistic reason, though).
Does it mean that the APC did not learn anything from PDP’s fumblings all these past 16 years? Must APC make all the mistakes PDP made before it gets its bearing? Was the change ‘we’ voted for not for a change of the system?
I learnt that President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, wants us to drop the “General” title as soon as he’s sworn in on May 29. Now, that’s a tough one!
