  • THE GUARDIAN EDITORIAL: Ahmed Gulak: A murder that should be unravelled THE GUARDIAN EDITORIAL: Ahmed Gulak: A murder that should be unravelled
    The killing of Ahmed Gulak, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a former political adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan, again by “unknown gunmen”, is a clear indication of the palpable state of insecurity in the country and a signal that no one, not the mighty nor the low, is safe anymore. Reports of killings across the country have become a daily occurrence to the point where most incidents no longer make headlines. Even more troubling is the…

    *Prosecution against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a cruise missile against a free internet, and Bitcoin could be next. An Espionage Act prosecution against Julian Assange isn’t just an attack on the First Amendment. It’s a cruise missile against a free internet, and Bitcoin could be next. I never thought my older brother Julian Assange would need my help. I’ve always looked up to him. He is fearless, smart, nurturing and protective. No matter what was going on in his…

    Members of the community where I live did not start a vigilante group because the Nigerian minister of Defence asked us to protect ourselves. We decided to over the spate of robberies we were experiencing in our community in Benin City. The nature of these robberies resembles the kind perpetrated on residents by Boko Haram – they are directed at the vulnerable and women. Sometimes, they are regular and at other times irregular, depending on the time of day and…

  • AN OPEN LETTER TO THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT: PURSUE A BITCOIN STANDARD... NFL star and Nigerian descendant Russell Okung asks the Nigerian government to adopt a Bitcoin standard or risk falling behind. Business and Economy AN OPEN LETTER TO THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT: PURSUE A BITCOIN STANDARD... NFL star and Nigerian descendant Russell Okung asks the Nigerian government to adopt a Bitcoin standard or risk falling behind.
    Greetings President Muhammadu Buhari, The hope of Nigeria lies within this generation. I am proudly a Nigerian descendant living in America and am a proponent of Bitcoin. I write to urge the Nigerian government to pursue economic independence and financial sovereignty by pursuing a national Bitcoin standard. Soon every nation will be faced with this decision, but those who seize the present moment proactively as we have just witnessed in El Salvador, will enjoy significant advantages globally for generations to come. It is no secret that the current global economic environment is worrisome and unsustainable. Sadly, the fate of the Nigerian economy is in the hands of global central bankers who do not represent the best interests of the Nigerian people. Despite the challenges we face, the resilience of Nigerians continues to inspire. The Nigerian society enjoys more favorable conditions than many of its neighbors. However, even greater opportunity awaits with the adoption of national action in favor of a Bitcoin standard. The tone of this letter is meant to convey urgency both in terms of the forthcoming economic despair and the limited window to act on this opportunity with fierce boldness and strong leadership. While the challenges of COVID-19…

But the organisation appeared unperturbed by the ban, offering to help its Nigeria-based users to bypass the ban. It said it had commenced efforts to restore access to its platform for Nigerians following the blocking of access to it by telecommunication companies in the country. Many Nigerians immediately sought an alternative route via Virtual Private Network (VPN). Downloading the VPN app appeared difficult on Saturday. Attorney General of the Federation and Justice Minister Abubakar Malami warned that violators of the ban would be prosecuted, even as more condemnations trailed the Twitter suspension. The United States yesterday told the Federal Government that its suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria is…
