Nigeria’s non-reaction to the execution of Nigerians in Indonesia

Four Nigerians were executed in Indonesia for drug offences. The execution was condemned by several countries and organisations like Amnesty International.

Buhahahari turning “change” into a joke

The man ran for president on the platform of “change” and anti-corruption. Many of his supporters are expecting the dawn of a new era in Nigeria from 29 May. But Buhahari is staying true to what some of us suspected from the onset. You only have to look at who he has put in charge of his “Transition Committee”. None …

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo seems to have taken up a supervisory role in the incoming Buhahari administration. The president-elect appears to trust Obasanjo a lot and is relying on him for advice on prospective ministerial appointments. Close aides asked Buhahari why he trusts a crooked man like Obasanjo so much, and the president-elect said that Obasanjo had entrusted him with …
