With the highest sense of responsibility I am not sure Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari still has a reason to hold on to his office and I say this not just because we are in a time of crisis occasioned by insecurity but because he has demonstrated over again that...
Perhaps by now, the leadership of the All Peoples Congress (APC) would have started putting heads together to assemble a team of Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) for a legal firework to extricate the party from a self-contrived mire if the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, hadn’t intervened and...
The first thing I want to say is that the subject of Christians in politics is as old as the modern church. This was not an issue for Christians in the early church who lived under monarchical style of government. But with the advent of democracy where public officials...
