The Worst Government In the History of Nigeria (1), By Femi Aribisala

Truth has fallen in the street of this misguided Buhari administration; so much so that abject failure has been camouflaged as its triumph. It is amusing, if not very disturbing, to see the number of people the Buhari administration has brought out of the woodwork to sing its praises on…

How to Be a Clueless President, By Femi Aribisala

Instead of giving Nigerians the change you championed, give them excuses. Blame Goodluck Jonathan for everything. In six years of Goodluck Jonathan’s presidency, the opposition told us again and again the man was “clueless.” It made sure the tag stuck to him like glue. But now we have a new…
