Peter Obi’s Quiet Inroads into the Muslim North – Farooq Kperogi

I asked if he had heard of Peter Obi. He hadn’t. Not even remotely. And my uncle isn’t some uneducated, rural bumpkin.- Farooq Kperogi Several weeks ago, my 80-year-old paternal uncle, who is a community leader, called me to ask whom between Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu he should vote and canvass support for. That was a strange request considering that in 2019 he resisted my entreaty to him to not vote or campaign for Buhari because of the danger that a Buhari second term would pose for Nigeria. He apparently sensed that I was hesitant to make any recommendations because the last time I did he balked. He was a true believer in Buhari even when overwhelming evidence had shown that Buhari wasn’t whom he had claimed to be. In response to my hesitation, he said he was asking because a...

Peter Obi: The Labour Party Candidate Electrifying Young Nigerians – BBC News

A wealthy businessman with a reputation for being frugal, Peter Obi has emerged as a powerful force ahead of Nigeria's presidential election next February, energising voters with messages of prudence and accountability that are amplified by an army of social media users. In a country that seems to always be on the lookout for a messiah to solve its myriad problems, young social media-savvy supporters have elevated Mr Obi to sainthood and are backing his largely unknown Labour Party against two septuagenarian political heavyweights. His name is often trending on social media on the back of numerous conversations sparked by his supporters, instantly recognisable from their display picture of his image or the white, red and green logo of his party.

Senator Ekweremadu and an Evil Soul Called David – Fani-Kayode

Senator Ekweremadu I have done my research on this matter. As I said from the outset, I cannot and will not condemn my friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his beautiful wife unless I see the evidence of their wrongdoing or they are convicted by a court of law. I am now convinced that there is NO evidence and that they will NOT be convicted. There is also a distinct possibility that the charges may eventually be dropped or thrown out by the court if the British really want to play it fairly. See Also: Ekweremadu Case: The Youngman is 22yrs, Not 15yrs, NIS I believe that the London Metropolitan Police have acted hastily and in error or that they are simply behaving in a typically racist manner all in an attempt to demonise and stigmatise a Nigerian public figure and Niger...

Freedom of Religious Expression: Lawyer Appears at the Supreme Court Dressed as a Native Doctor

Following the Supreme Court's ruling, granting freedom of religious expression to secondary schools students, Chief Malcolm Omirhobo decided to appear at the Supreme Court as a Native Doctor. It will be recalled that the Supreme Court had recently ruled that secondary school students could go to school dressed in their Hijabs, the religious dressing allowed for Muslim females. See Also: We Won’t Tolerate Hijab in Kwara Mission Schools – CAN Citing this, the human rights Lawyer, noted that the Supreme Court had, by that ruling, granted persons of all religions the right to dress in line with their relious beliefs. He was therefore exercising his rights by appearing as a traditional worshipper. Aside from causing a stir in court, the Justices, who were visibly shocked, immediate...
