OPINION: 2019 General  Election And The Looming Failure

By Jerome-Mario Utomi             (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Demystifying the time-honored saying that; ‘the powerful never lose opportunities-they remain available to them, that the powerless on the other hand, never experience opportunity – it is always arriving at a later time,  remains a remarkable political lesson Nigerians gave to the world in 2015.

…Appraisal Before Darkness Falls By Francis Amadiegwu (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – As a grandfathered member/associate of APC, I am constrained to note, with alarm, the potentially crippling distress the party has wrought or about to wreak, upon itself, an unforced error that is far worse than just an “own goal” because a team can still overcome […]

“Just Do Good”: A June 12 Story, By Reuben Abati

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – I used to have a friend we called Alhaji Bashy.  He was not a Muslim. No. But he called himself Alhaji Bashy, even if that was not his real name. You want to know his real name? It was Theophilus. And his wife was named Ruth. His children? He was yet to […]

Re: The Offa Bank Armed Robbery & The Not So Veiled Harassment of Nigeria’s Senate President

Francis Amadiegwu (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – I find it perplexing that the IG of Police would recklessly publicize that the Police had invited the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki for questioning.
