Generally, I like challenges and I’ve accepted many of them during my career. “Even the top clubs I coached...

Insecurity in Southeast: Governors, FG officials may be responsible not IPOB – HURIWA alleges

General Buhari was more democratic than President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari was Military Head of State from 1984-85. His claimed principles including a zero-tolerance for corruption and fierce patriotism in that era partly propelled his return as a two-term elected – not necessarily democratically elected – President. He encapsulates Karl Marx’s assertion  that: “History repeats itself; first as a tragedy, then, as  farce.” He was known as a tough and determined general who as the    General Officer Commanding the Third Division in Jos, without permission, led troops to clear Chadian troops who had occupied some Nigerian islands in the Lake Chad area. Tragically, as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, he has in the past five years Nigeria, presided over a country under continuous Islamist terrorist attack...

The N1,000 note is officially the biggest Nigerian currency denomination, but it now seems the N1,000,000,000,000 has eclipsed that.
