One year later, the war against corruption has uncovered several mind-boggling revelations of reckless looting of our national treasury by VIPs - vagabonds in power!

...it is a good idea that President Buhari expects Nigerians - unemployed youth - to be hopeful about the change he promised. On the contrary, it would be difficult to take him seriously seeing that his nephew, children, and relatives of his ministers and other officials of state are already…

Oga Soldier, There Is God o!, By Ahmed Oluwasanjo

Generally, we are all human beings, although our professions differentiate into soldiers or civilians.

President Buhari: Penning The “Goats”, And Still Smoking Out The “Rats”?, By Ahmed Oluwasanjo

Only time could tell what Buhari would be called if he labours so hard to recover so many yams, only to allow the rats - 'ratocracy' - in his own administration to keep feeding on the commonwealth. Since the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari took over last year, Nigerians have…

Sunday Oliseh’s Self-delusions and Uncouth Talk-back at Nigerians, By Ahmed Oluwasanjo

Of course, this piece might make me one of the "insane" critics of Oliseh, but then he would have to prove his own sanity first. If he takes my humble advice to heart, and works on his temper, puts his team on a better pedestal and starts delivering, he would…
