TINUBU MOURNS BABA SUWE

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has commiserated with the family and professional colleagues of the late Mr. Babatunde Omidina, aka Baba Suwe, over his death. Baba Suwe died on Monday in Lagos. His remains were buried in his Ikorodu, Lagos, home yesterday. In a condolence letter released yesterday by his Media Office in Abuja, the APC leader described the late Omidina as “an indisputable ambassador of Nigerian culture, judging by the tumultuous acclaim he received from both Yoruba-speaking and non-Yoruba speaking audiences.” Tinubu added: “By way of this letter, please accept my deepest condolences...

    The arrest and trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed IPOB, is going to dominate the news for many months to come. The trial promises to be a cause celebre, one of those rare cases in which politics, criminality and sensation are mixed with high drama. It is indeed a fitting irony that Kanu, despite his frenzied rhetoric, including referring to his country as a zoo, he was still sober enough to carry a Nigerian passport. We look…

    What can we really and honestly make of twenty-two years of unbroken democracy in the country? When Babangida and his military travellers wanted to bequeath their brand of democracy to us, many were deceived to believe that they meant well for the country. From 1985 to 1993, the nation was dribbled the way the Maradona and his kitchen cabinet knew best! From Option A4 to two political parties (Social Democratic Party and National Republican Convention), we were all fooled. June…

  • GUARDIAN EDITORIAL: Kenneth David Kaunda (1924-2021) GUARDIAN EDITORIAL: Kenneth David Kaunda (1924-2021)
    Founding father and President of Zambia, Kenneth David Kaunda (1924-2021) would be remembered as one of those rare revolutionaries that won independence without bloodshed. Kaunda led with exceptional love for humanity and emotions for his people. Though he was politically imperfect, his foibles forgivable, he remains an icon of nationalism and of courageous leadership that today’s African countries need urgently. Born in April 1924, in Lubwa, then Northern Rhodesia, young Kaunda had a good parentage and tutelage in a family…

  • Business and Economy I’ll relocate to U.S. after my tenure, Obiano replies EFCC
    Governor Willie Obiano has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that he will be relocating to his United States base when he leaves office next March. Reacting yesterday to Wednesday’s placement of the governor on a watch list by the anti-graft agency, Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Don Adinuba, accused EFCC of acting a script. He said his principal, currently out of the country, never disguised when he embarked on the foreign trip. The commissioner said the governor has made it public that he would relocate to his U.S. residence at the end of his tenure. “Nigerians were dismayed that the EFCC went a new low on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, when it sponsored media reports claiming that it has placed Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on its watch list. The EFCC provided no details of how Governor Obiano has been placed on its watch list but made a reference to a letter it purportedly wrote on November 15, 2021, to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) asking it to inform the anti-graft agency anytime the governor is travelling out of the country,” Adinuba stated.
