Hell was almost let loose in front of the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday as pro- and anti-Oshiomhole protesters clashed in Abuja.

Why APC crisis is good for Nigeria

All Progressives Congress (APC) is on the cusp of an implosion. The crisis in the party has reached a frightening crescendo. It has been a gradual but steady plummet for the party since its 2015 unanticipated triumph. I believe, the APC is in the thrall of a curse – the success curse.
Yoruba World Congress (YWC), an umbrella body of all Yoruba socio-cultural groups, has threatened to hold a peaceful protest in support of the recently launched Western Nigeria Security Network code-named Amotekun.

It’s a security strategy to involve Miyetti Allah in Amotekun

As I said in a column in June 2019, security is everybody’s business. No individual, group, institution or organisation is nugatory in matters of security. All efforts are needed and all hands must be forged into one fist in the pursuit of peace. In fact, it imperils security if any stakeholder to the peace is “quarantined” and stereotyped.

A study by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) put the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria to 13.5 million – as of 2018. An unimpressive mass of this number comes from Borno, Adamawa, Yobe, Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Zamfara, and other northern states.
