    By Akintokunbo A Adejumo: A People’s Aversion to the Truth is their Undoing "There is not a truth existing which I fear or wish unknown to the whole world." - Thomas Jefferson “When it comes to the truth, the real bias is thinking any one side has a monopoly on it.” – A Barton Hinkle. Three events or incidences prompted me to write this article. First one was the wide dissemination of an article purportedly written by our esteemed professor and Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka in tribute to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, heaping praises…

    By   Akintokunbo A Adejumo: Kudos to the Nigerian Police Force This might prove to be the foundation for a new, effective and efficient policing system in Nigeria. We will get there one day. It is certainly an improvement, forward-looking action and assures the public that it is doing its best to move with the fast-changing world of both environmental and technological changes. Whoever are the new breed of police officers in today’s Nigeria Police Force who are driving this change and movement into 21st Century policing need to be commended,…

    By Olusola Daniel: Diezani Alison-Madueke’s Desperation Few people illustrate the transient nature of positional power like the erstwhile Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke. The hitherto untouchable “super woman” has suddenly become like a frightened toddler seeking sympathy from the same people she despised while in power. We all remember how she reportedly contrived her flight booking to coincide with President Muhammadu Buhari’s and ran with abandon after him to seek his attention at the airport, only to be politely ignored by the latter. The…

  • Dumping Faleke as Audu’s replacement, a mistake — Sagay
    Dumping Faleke as Audu’s replacement, a mistake — Sagay Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) tells TOBI AWORINDE that the All Progressives Congress’ deputy governorship candidate, James Faleke, should replace the late Abubakar Audu in the run-off Why do you support the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct a supplementary governorship election in Kogi State? It is because the election has already been held. It is a waste of time, resources and the efforts and energy of the people to go back and take part in an election in which they have already voted. Therefore, only those who have not voted and have been deprived of voting should vote. That is what we have been saying — Section 181 of the constitution already shows that once an election has been conducted and the results show that there is a leader, if the person dies, then the running mate should take his place; even though in this case the results have been declared inconclusive. Those are the two legs of my argument: You do not repeat an election that has been concluded and whose results have already been written down. In essence, it is only those that have not voted who will now vote. And as to who will…

  • Kogi governorship race gets messier by the day
    Kogi governorship race gets messier by the day James Abiodun Faleke, the running mate to late Abubakar Audu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare him governor elect. He has also asked his party to ignore INEC’s directive that it produce a new governorship candidate. In a November 26 letter to INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, Falake’s lawyer, the respected senior advocate, Wole Olanipekun, insisted that under Section 187 of the 1999 Constitution, Faleke was duly elected as deputy governor of Kogi State and that INEC had no right under the law to declare the election inconclusive. He accused INEC of deliberately creating what he called “legal conundrum” and urged the APC not to be a party to the action. “In law and logic, no new candidate can inherit or be a beneficiary of the votes already cast, counted and declared by INEC before that candidate was nominated and purportedly sponsored,” Mr. Faleke wrote through his counsel, Wole Olanipekun. “Assuming without conceding that INEC is even right to order a supplementary election, the votes already cast, counted and declared on Saturday, 25th November 2015, were votes for the joint constitutional ticket of…
