Small note to governor-elect, Dr. Fayemi
Sir: Victory is sweet! Very soothing! After victory comes the burden of how to maintain and sustain victory. If I were you, while I am still savoring my immense victory...
The tough job of Buhari campaign strategists
I wonder how strategists will cope especially in a country where the sampling of opinion poll isn’t yet a novelty. Do you not see how men-of-the- year awards are dished out without the sampling of opinion polls from door to door, on phone and from plain folks from the streets?
