  • The Guardian Editorial: ‘Evans’ the terrible kidnapper The Guardian Editorial: ‘Evans’ the terrible kidnapper
    The spectacular success while it lasted, of Chukwudi Onuamadike, alias Evans, in his line of ‘kidnapping business’ necessarily elicits endless questions and speculations about the nature and the values that, made possible his exploits and on the other hand, the capacity of the state and its law enforcement apparatus to assure the most fundamental purpose of government which, to quote the extant constitution of the country is ‘the security and welfare of the people’. Nevertheless, the Nigerian Police must be…

For me, sometimes, drinking peppersoup is not enough so I elevate it by adding other ingredients that I will show you how to.I have a lot…

  • Nigerian Tribune Editorial:  NJC’s recall of suspended judges Nigerian Tribune Editorial: NJC’s recall of suspended judges
    Reactions to the recent recall of some suspended judges by the National Judicial Council (NJC) have been somewhat mixed. While some aides of President Muhammadu Buhari were disappointed by the recall which they saw as further frustration of the administration’s anti-corruption fight by the judiciary, many Nigerians saw the NJC’s action as a welcome development that has corrected the hasty punishment of the judges and the violation of the presumption of innocence. It would be recalled that some judges were…

  • Fed Govt to address agitation, says Osinbajo Business and Economy Fed Govt to address agitation, says Osinbajo
    There is a ray of hope for agitators as the federal government assured Nigerians last night that it would immediately address their grievances. But it will be within the confines of the constitution, which the government swore to uphold. Acting President Yemi Osinbajo engaged in a series of consultations between June 13 and 22 with leaders of thought, traditional rulers and political leaders in the North and the Southeast. He also met with governors. This followed the continuous agitation for secession by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the East and the October 1 quit order given to Igbo resident in the North by a coalition of youth groups. A statement yesterday by Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Laolu Akande on the highlights of the meetings, emphasised the affirmation of “the necessity of confronting all grievances and frustrations head-on, however uncomfortable that might seem now; instead of ignoring issues and allowing them to fester.” The acting president urged that such grievances be expressed with grace. He condemned hate speeches. The meeting “affirmed the need to draw a line between the freedom of expression guaranteed by the Constitution and the degeneration of such expression into hateful rhetoric, prejudice…

  • Confederations Cup: Germany must stop Chicharito to beat Mexico - Benjamin Henrichs Sports Confederations Cup: Germany must stop Chicharito to beat Mexico - Benjamin Henrichs
    SOCHI, Russia -- Germany defender Benjamin Henrichs has warned that Die Mannschaft need to keep a close eye on his Bayer Leverkusen teammate Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez in Thursday's Confederations Cup semifinal against Mexico. The 20-year-old full-back hopes Joachim Low gives him a start against El Tri as Germany seek to win the tournament for the first time. He is looking to stop Hernandez, who returned to training on Tuesday after sitting out a day earlier. "I hope I will play and I will stop him from scoring," Henrichs told reporters on Tuesday. "It's very difficult to play against him. He likes to score and even if there isn't really a chance he scores, so he's a very good player." Henrichs said Hernandez has given him advice at Bayer Leverkusen and the two get along off the pitch. The youngster -- who signed a new contract with Die Werkself back in May -- believes the game against Mexico will be a tough test. "I think [Mexico] is similar to Chile," he said. "We have to play well tactically, you need to stop Chicharito, because he's a very good individual player and I hope we are going to win." Hernandez didn't train…
