Our fathers of old were better than us in many ways. They were more organised. They tower far above us when it comes to human management. And they were far more honourable. Save for our claim to Western education, we have nothing to compare. Beyond our ability to read and write, the native intelligence of...

28years later, counting the gains, the losses of June 12

When the military regime led by the General Ibrahim Babangida(rtd.) once again postponed civil rule elections to June 12, 1993, it was unaware it was setting an historical date that will eventually consume it and disgrace the military out of power. He was equally unaware that the date will become of symbolic significance in the...
