Dear Prof Sagay

2023 and Osinbajo’s song of …

A week after he stuttered at the vice-presidential debate in Abuja, as result of functioning in Lai’s lane, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was at the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo last weekend to shred whatever vestige of credibility he has left for crass political opportunism.

Real change representatives and parliamentary option

We lost properties worth N500m to Bwari crisis — Traders, residents

WITHOUT the 71 lawmakers who tabled a motion for Nigeria to return to the parliamentary option last week, our four years of “change” would have passed without any proposal to change anything from all the things that have brought us to where we are today as a country .
