The Ministers Who Must Not Return To Buhari’s Cabinet - Jaafar Jaafar

Apr 28, 2019.

I have not known a Nigerian president who left his cabinet intact, for better or worse, throughout his tenure than President Muhammadu Buhari. He is so allergic to change that he maintained the portfolio of the ministers for nearly four years.

The best sinecure in the world, editorial board of Guinness World Records will agree with me, is the Buhari cabinet job. No assessment, no sack, no queries and, of course, no worries.

The Postponement of 2019 Polls in Nigeria: The Invisible Forces Behind The Scene

The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria empowered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to fix the hours of the voting exercise among the competing candidates into the office of the president; National Assembly; the Governors; State Assemblies as well as Chairmen and their Councilors of the Abuja Area Council at its discretion for the peaceful and fair conduct of the polls.

NCR: Credit System For Growth

There is no denying the fact that the Nigerian credit landscape has been transformed in recent years. Gone were the days that in obtaining a loan, no matter how small, one had to submit all the documents of ones house to the bank. Many fathers had, in this way, lost their landed properties because the business their sons had poured the bank loan into had failed. The use of landed property makes lending restrictive as women, small business owners and entrepreneurs are mostly excluded from the credit worthy crowd.

The proposed award of the Trans Forcados Pipeline (TFP) surveillance contract by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to Ocean Marine Solutions (OMS) is in the national interest; and, I have noted that Eraskorp, which lost the contract to ineptitude that resulted in serious breaches on the TFP in 2018, has raised issues over the proposed contract. That Eraskorp decided to raise issues over NNPC’s decision to terminate the contract is understandable.

These are clearly extremely trying times for Nigeria. The nation’s current security situation can actually overwhelm any government, no matter its good intentions and level of preparedness. Just when the world is sadly getting used to identifying the north east as a theatre of insurgency, another tragic challenge is playing out in the north western part, particularly Zamfara State, in the form of armed banditry.

Nation Builders, 2 Deaths: The Shehu Shagari And Lulu Briggs Connection

Two great friends and political allies died peacefully a few hours apart. One in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city and the other in Accra, the capital city of neighbouring country, Ghana, where he had gone for a short visit. One from the aridity of the peaceful sub-urban town of Shagari, close to the headquarters of the Sokoto Caliphate in Nigeria’s extreme northwest. The other from the swampy creek town of Abonnema, once a vibrant base for Europe’s “Legitimate Trade” in agricultural produce in the aftermath of the abolition of slave trade, but today in the heart of the famous Niger Delta.
