MKO Abiola Day or Democracy Day? By Dr. Ahmed Adamu

The first democratically elected government in Nigeria was inaugurated on 1st October 1960 and re-elected in 1964, but was toppled by a military coup on 15th January 1966. Likewise, on October 1st, 1979, another democracy was revived, but was toppled by the military on 31st December 1983, just few months after a democratic election. Again, in 1993, another democratic election took place on June 12, but was halted by the military. The most sustained democracy in Nigeria is the one that was ushered in on May 29th 1999, and it is the current democratic era in the country.

On Speaking Truth To Power! June 12, 2019 By Salihu Tanko Yakasai

In public service, there is a clear and present channel of communication between superior officers and their subordinates (and vise versa) on sundry matters especially those of public importance with a view to positively impact on the welfare of the members of the public. If subordinates, for example, have issues they want to bring to the knowledge of their superior officers for any appropriate action to be taken, there is a clear channel of communication either formal or informal through which they can politely inform their bosses.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter V — Buhari A. Sa'ee

The breakfast is done and I was eager to be served and finish eating. Let my name be called. Let someone tell me to get ready. At this moment, me and Rev. Father have since began talking to become friends on different social media platforms. He told me the name he's using on Facebook which I promised to search, send my request and inbox him my digits as soon as possible. We began orchestrating how it's going to be while we are out. If it's dark, he's going to give me a place to sleep and leave early in the morning. Rev. Father was one of the best people I've seen in my life.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter IV — Buhari A. Sa'ee

DAY 4
(Monday 8th April, 2019)

But wait, Aliyu's rescuer was expected to either send someone or bring the ransom himself yesterday but he didn't! That alone, it led to a serious trouble for Aliyu. He's been treated as someone who's been lying all through. Couldn't his situation be well understood having narrated his own ordeal as someone who has no blood relative(s) to help him out and was in fact testified by his so-called rescuer?

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter III — Buhari A. Sa'ee

It was our first day but the level of commitment shown by other victims in calling their families/rescuers couldn't be overemphasized. So we had to emulate from it. Because it is either they have gone through whole lot of torture and change of camp(s) or they have possibly seen so many terrible things and are scared to add a day in the forest. Yes, if you overstayed in a particular camp because your family couldn't meet the required price, they'd take you to another camp, more tougher than the previous one because they have many camps in the forest.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter II — Buhari A. Sa'ee

In my previous narration, I am sure someone would perhaps want to know how I slept and woke up the next day in the forest especially being someone who has never experienced such a traumatic episode in his life before. Well, when I put my head on the ground attempting to sleep, despite the cut on my foot which was real and deep, I had so many scary things in my mind but in the end I just had to console and convince myself that I was dreaming. Yes, you heard me right. Dreaming! And would definitely see myself at home the next morning.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter I — Buhari A. Sa'ee

(It was Thursday 4th, April 2019 @6:50pm)

I think taking us back to how the journey began isn't that necessary but the narration of my encounter with the kidnappers which took place at around 6:50pm of Thursday 4th April, 2019. Your guess is as good as mine being someone who has never experienced it. Yes, it was highly chaotic and the aftermath is psychologically traumatic.
