Sowore And Revolution: As Buhari Forgets Why And How He Became President, By SKC Ogbonnia

Rather than toe the path of violence or emulate Buhari’s incendiary style, Omoyele Sowore called for a peaceful revolution with the goal of awakening an unresponsive government towards change.

Does Nigeria Really Need A Revolution Now?, By ‘Fisayo Soyombo

While street protests are important, I personally believe the biggest revolution needed in Nigeria is the revolution of self — the revolution of values, intellect and the mind. Our problem is more than Muhammdu Buhari; it is that warped sense of values that drive many of us to place self…

Crocodile Tears For Zamfara and a Culture of Interference, By Azu Ishiekwene

Zamfara was the metaphor of APC’s catastrophic primaries in a number of states and Oshiomhole cannot pretend otherwise. In Delta, Imo, Rivers, Adamawa, Ogun and Lagos, it was a shambolic spectre of bribes, shady deals, intimidation, blackmail and rules-bending in varying degrees, with the national secretariat worsted in all outcomes.…
