By Chris Njoku, Owerri/ THE NATION Southeast governors yesterday launched a regional security outfit codenamed Ebube Agu (the glory of a tiger) to battle rising insecurity.

    *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…

    In fairness to the Muhammadu Buhari administration, it has taken some steps aimed at facilitating business transactions. These include the Executive Order 1 signed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in May 2016. Also, following the World Bank annual rating, which placed Nigeria 131st position among 190 economies rated, the government also took some steps towards further making its dream of bringing the rating up to 70 by 2023, in tandem with its Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).

  • Why IBB annulled Abiola’s June 12 1993 victory, by Obasanjo Business and Economy Why IBB annulled Abiola’s June 12 1993 victory, by Obasanjo
    Barely 28 years after, former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday lamented the annulment of June 12, 1993 presidential election, presumably won by the late philanthropist, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola. He blamed the cancellation on “bad belle”. The election, adjudged to be most peaceful, credible and fair, was annulled by the military President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. Obasanjo said the annulment robbed Egbaland and Ogun State the rare privilege of having three of its prominent sons occupying the number one leadership position in the country at different times. The elder statesman, who was referring to former Head of Interim National Government(ING), Chief Ernest Shonekan, himself, who governed the country first as a military Head of State and a civilian president, apparently noted that Abiola would have become the third, if the 1993 presidential poll was not annulled. He spoke yesterday in Abeokuta after his investiture as a trustee of the Abeokuta Club, a socio-cultural organisation of Egba people of Ogun State, where Tokunbo Odebunmi, an engineer, is the president. Obasanjo was honoured alongside the late Abiola, who was awarded a posthumous vice-patron of the club. The former president, who noted that Abiola was his schoolmate at the Baptist Boys High School (BBHS) Abeokuta,…
