Exerting the change; Restructure this Feeding Bottle Federalism

This search for our national identity continues 103 years after amalgamation and almost six decades of independence. This torturous search; Searching for Nigeria among Nigerians can be described by the pessimist as passing the camel through the eye of a needle. Why wouldn’t it? Self-inflicting, we continue to deliberately spurn the uncommon wisdom of Einstein, ‘that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results’. The explicit inference there is that achieving the promised change on which the ruling party rode to power, requires a…

Editorial Opinion: Defying the Challenges, Nigeria @57

Opinion: ASUU Unending Imbroglio, No Respite

The recent call off of the 36 day old strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), in protest of the non-implementation of the 2009 agreement, the 2013 MoU and the 2016 resolutions. However relieving it is that students can leave the streets and return to the classrooms, the release isn’t a one to relish. This is because of the Federal government default attitude to constantly renegade on agreements made with ASUU. Tertiary education in Nigeria continues to suffer miserably from the nonchalant attitude of government. Government…
