The disclosure by the United Nations Education, Scientic and Cultural Organisation UNESCO, that Nigeria has a huge 68.8 million teaching staff gap in its primary and secondary school is worrisome, alarming and unacceptable, and demands that urgent steps be taken by federal and state authorities to close the gap.

Chadian Leader, Idriss Derby was recently inaugurated as President of his country for a record fifth term of another five years. By this ignoble development Derby would have been in power for 31 years when his tenure expires in 2021. Given his age at 69 by then, there is every likelihood that he would seek  re-election, more so, as he had, through a manipulated referendum, abrogated  tenure limits from his country’s Constitution.

President Muhammadu Buhari has shown, assuming it was hidden before now, that his Presidency is for some particular people and sections of the Nigerian federation.
This stark reality and deepening hate leadership being championed by the country’s Number One citizen has, again, been poignantly demonstrated in some recent appointments he made.

THE frosty relationship between the Presidency and the National Assembly particularly the Senate arising from the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and two others over alleged forgery of the 2015 Senate Standing Order is most unfortunate, worrisome and should not be allowed to fester any longer in the interest of Nigerians.
