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.

CP Wakil Singham: An Exit of One Tough Cop -By Yakubu Musa

I was guilty of posting the first video that introduced the just retired Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Wakil, into the social media limelight. I got it from a friend, Alhaji Uba Danzainab, and it became an instant hit, going viral within the first hours of its release.

But it wasn’t still a palatable introduction of a super hero in the making in a typical blockbuster movie.

Indeed the barrage of comments the ‘maza-kwaya mata-kwaya’ video generated were not something that Wakil would proud of as a preamble of his social media debut.

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.

Kashim:A War Time Master Builder And A Pillar Of Modern Borno

A few people in the North are conversant with the legend of the master builder - Muhammadu Durugu, known as Babban Gwani, who was the greatest builder and sculptor in the north. He built virtually all the Emirs' palaces in the north, with their artistic designs that adorned the entrance and the main Emir's palace. Infact, he was killed because of his art, so that he would not replicate the beauties he produced in other lands.
