THE last elections, particularly the presidential election won by the candidate of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari; were a watershed in the annals of democratic elections in Nigeria.

All the prophets of doom have now been put to shame. Perhaps, for the first time in the history of modern Nigeria, we are witnessing the triumph, not of any political party or candidate, but of the Nigerian voter, who not only cast his vote for the candidate of his choice, but braved the odds and waited for the ballot papers to be counted, amidst rain and heat, and followed the electoral process with keen attention till the results were announced.

7 Apr 2015
He had lost three elections in a row, his political progress, and his chance of a break-through in his presidential ambitions became greatly diminished.

The traditional institution, the pantheon of custodians of culture, has become the hunting ground for thieving politicians whose only reliable weapon is the people’s commonwealth, wrongly and audaciously acquired. Many royal fathers have lost their golden voices at the sight of the fat wads. In my constituency, the so-called intellectuals have forgotten the principle of philosophical piety. Men and women of letters, who should be the guide of society, have rather yielded themselves as mercenaries in the art of sophistry.

ONCE again, the world Christian community, or the Christendom, is celebrating Easter, which marks the crucifixion and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ more than 2000 years ago.
