By George Makeri [email protected] "That boy calls you father - do not bear a hand in his death." Mr. Dede (an Igbo man) sneaked into the class echoing the sentence above repeatedly. My young mind got to work, enraptured by the solemnity of Mr. Dede's tone and the import of the statement he was repeatedly making as he stole his way around the class. I was hypnotised trying to figure out what father was going to kill his son and why. The ensuing pin-drop silence in the class was an indication I was not the only one mesmerized by Mr. Dede's solemn drama. It was in my JSS 3. We were unto Chinue Achebe's 'Things Fall Apart': The Death of Ikemefuna. Ironically, Chinue Achebe was himself another Igbo man. Mr. Dede, our literature teacher, took that statement from elder Ezeudu...

Youth under the auspices of El-Rufai Campaign Organization Group and Continuity  Project 2019 has stormed the Kaduna State House of Assembly in protest over what they termed as failure of All Progressives Congress (APC) led government’s failure to keep up with promise of  empowering them as scheduled after election. During the protest in Kaduna, Northwestern Nigeria today, the youth said lack of empowerment by the el-Rufai’s led administration has caused a lot of untold hardship and serious hunger in the land. The  angry youths who gathered in front of Lugard Hall chanting “No more APC in 2019” also blocked major route leading in and out of the Kaduna State House of Assembly leading to serious traffic gridlock.

By Jim Gami Makama “The cynic is a man, who knows the price of everything, but knows the value of nothing,” Oscar Wilde. Superficial leaders place much premium on the cost of everything, they plan to execute, implement or run, and don’t give a single care on the value of what the program, project or institution will add to the people or society at large.   The world ‘Traditional Ruler’ entails the reign of a monarch or a titled ruler vested with the authority to rule over a people in their affairs of life. It’s then right to say therefore, that traditional rulers and those institutions are very vital in bringing development closer to the people as well as the community they reside. There has been change in the role of traditional rulers in Nigeria as it applies to community deve

By Benjamin Bala The Ăsholio have a saying; "If you want to know what is in the woods, throw a stone in it", and whatever is therein will come out. This seems to be exactly what the recently passed "Anti-Open Grazing Law" of Benue State has done. Benue State and other places like Taraba, Plateau, Southern Kaduna, Nasarawa, Enugu, Edo, Delta, etc., have suffered attacks from armed herdsmen. These armed herdsmen are believed to have destroyed more lives than Boko Haram or ISIS. Whereas, the then IG of Police Solomon Arase identified them as Fulani herdsmen, but that most of them were however, not Nigerians (Guardian Newspaper 15.02.2016), the Fulani race represented by Miyeti Allah, JNI have consistently denied that the killers were Fulani herdsmen. Hence, the herdsmen killer-Machines hav

By George Makeri I want to Thank Audu Maikori for the 90 billion naira lawsuit against the governor. May God continue to guide and keep Maikori for SK and Nigeria. I want to also say a big kudos to CEDRA for taking the challenge to sue the Government over the closure of KASU. God bless CEDRA. I wish CEDRA also look into the relocation of the school as well. However this is neither about CEDRA nor Audu Maikori. Some one asked why I was yet to say something about SOKAPU youth wing and Shehu Sani scandal. Scandal? I couldn't believe people could call a simple social interaction scandal? Phew! So sad how naive people can easily be, and it always beat me how some people couldn't see through the smokescreens among which are: 1. To create suspicion among SOKAPU youth wing members and par...
