SIR: If I were to vote in United Kingdom elections, the Tories will most likely have my vote. This statement will surely be greeted with a rude shock from some of my comrades many of whom are only aware of my “progressive” views, but are yet to bother to find out my support for the U.S. Republicans and the UK Conservatives.

Salaries of soldiers, police and other civil servants are either delayed or not paid for months on end. Roads are not built. Hospitals are not working. Public schools are virtually gone.

IT was as if Badagry and its people orchestrated this political mutiny against the then ruling party in the state, Alliance for Democracy. Badagry’s position as divisional headquarters was drastically and progressively eroded. During Tinubu’s second term in office, no commissioner was appointed from Badagry, however, a commissioner was appointed from Ojo.

THE general result of the 2015 elections as it affects Badagry Division is of the major concern here. Badagry Division, before the creation of local government areas in 1989 (where Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Ojo and Amuwo Odofin Local Government Areas were carved out) was made up of three District Councils – the Egun-Awori, Ajeromi-Ifelodun and Awori. These…

THE incoming administration won the election with the mantra of change and has aptly summarised the task before it as tackling the issues of security, economy and corruption. Since the conclusion of the presidential election, a lot of suggestions have been made on how to go about this. Most of these suggestions border on probe and recovering of what past government officials have stolen,…

• Continued from yesterday WE should fight mass poverty at the BoP not just because it’s an assault on our moral, religious or human sensitivities. A more pragmatic and public-good reason exists for using deliberate policy to enable millions of Nigerians become thriving participants in the economy (i.e. to deliberately expand the BoP economy).

THE crisis rocking tiny Burundi following the refusal of the incumbent President Pierre Nkurunziza, to relinquish power after serving the mandatory constitutional two terms re-echoes the 1994 Rwanda genocide, in which nearly a million ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered in a matter of four months.

SIR: I am a regular user of the BRT system of transport. The inception of this mode of transportation was designed to ease the burden of the masses in Lagos State. However, the BRT has not readily satisfied its customers. I ply the CMS to Costain route every day and little or no attention is being given to the CMS bus stop. Whenever…
NYSC-kkkkk

SIR: I am compelled to use this medium to draw your attention once again to my predicament which is the non-issuance of my NYSC discharge certificate since 1983.
