Simon Kolawole, the founder of Cable Online newspaper is usually a jovial and jolly good fellow. He is capable of making jokes out of the most serious issues. As Editor of THISDAY where I also edited the Sunday newspaper, Simon would walk into my office and say, “Alhaji, Alhaji, Alhaji, how many times have you been to Saudi Arabia so that I can know the number of prefix I will put before your name?”.

GMB’s June 12 MKO Democracy Day honour Kingibe doesn’t merit

There is now a very engaging and interesting discourse going on June 12 courtesy of General Buhari’s surprise recognition of that watershed election that brought Nigerians together. Lest we get swamped by inanities, I believe we should first review some of the history and perspective to all that is happening now over that June 12 Democracy Day Declaration. Particularly the honor to MKO and more notably the (obviously unmerited) collateral (damage of an) honor to Kingibe.

Executive Order No. 6 of 2018: Between corruption and national security

WHEN he ran to be Nigeria’s president for the fourth time in 2014, Muhammadu Buhari pleaded that he was a converted democrat. Since Nigerians granted him his wish in 2015, he appears to have found it difficult either to show off the new livery of a converted democrat or to shake off his old habits as a humorless dictator. In his Presidential Executive Order, PEO, No. 6 of 2018, President Buhari buries any illusions as to his preference.
