EXPECTEDLY, goodwill messages have deservedly, poured in from far and wide to congratulate the clear victor of the 2015 elections, and President-Elect Muhammadu Buhari may not be unduly disturbed that President Goodluck Jonathan’s inspirational and totally unexpected early acceptance of defeat, ironically, favourably raised the incumbent’s rating as a statesman beyond the pedestrian perception induced by his performance in governance.

MD Yusufu is no more. A man of the shadows, who towered over men and events, always silent and unobtrusive, has finally retreated into that shadow from which no man, woman or child returns.

I am not among persons jubilating because the APC’s candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, won the April 11 governorship election in Lagos. While I would have loved the Lagos State Development Plan to terminate at 16 years, instead of yet another eight-year extension to 24 years, my disapproval has nothing to do with my political sentiments regarding the last general elections.

CONSIDERING the milestone effect of the 2015 general elections, it is important that we take on aspects of the electoral experience so that it does not just pass without leaving behind some important lessons.

IN spite of whatever Alaba has said about African countries not allocating political roles to the descendants of African kings in today's African States, these kings still pull a lot of weight. Unfortunately most of the time it is the wrong pull. Most of the time, it is a deadly pull.

MY dear reader, please look very closely at this picture. I am going to tell you about it. I saved a lot of pictures from Nigeria’s historic elections of March and April 2015; most in memorable words, several of them in pictures. This was one of them. Before I discuss this picture, I want to…

Nannies and house-helps have been known to commit all manners of atrocities on their unsuspecting employers. From sexual abuse of the children to stealing, husband snatching to even murder, horrible stories of nannies are legion.

THE Murtala Mohammed Airport Ikeja, otherwise known as MM2 airport has to be without any doubt the most unfriendly airport in Nigeria. It is of course needless to compare it with international standards as it does not come anywhere close and is consequently a waste of time and space. So, you have a flight for 6:45am on a Monday morning at the airport.
