NIGERIA POLITICS: Still on Buhari’s 32′ TV and the Epistle According to Garba Shehu

NIGERIA POLITICS: Still on Buhari’s 32′ TV and the Epistle According to Garba Shehu

Instead of wasting precious time and efforts dwelling on a TV model of the president, Shehu should have utilized such time and resources to write essays on why ASUU, resident doctors and those planning to go on strike soon should have a rethink and cooperate with government.

NIGERIA POLITICS: You Reject Restructuring at the Nation’s Peril, Activist tell Buhari

Buhari and his underground political power string pullers are pretending not to understand that the principle of self determination is a universal norm and not a vice.
