Punishment Made Easy - A Poem By Tuyitola

By Adetuyi Adetola

From the North-West in mascara
Mr President comes afresh
Calling for renewed trust

Thrusting away his hand
Chanting and shouting
Sai Nigeria

He doles out his promises
To an unbelieving frigid crowd
The press gladly observe

He then descends the podium
Here comes the first wave of stones
And a rain of abuses

A real man in a king's robe
He waves despite the repulse
Showing the greatest of love.

I could not just take my eyes off this lovely and cute picture of the embattled former Central Bank of Nigeria governor and the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi and his family. Take a look at it.

Bridges: Ojogbon Weeps Again, Accuses Engels & Others Of Attempted Destruction

The Welfare Officer of the Obafemi Awolowo University Students' Union, Ajewole Martins O. a.k.a Ojogbon has once again wept! Sometimes last semester, shortly after resumption from the fee hike struggle break, Ojogbon wept over some disturbing issues to him. Click here to read that report.
Below is the Press Statement from him:

For those who can recall, Ojogbon wept “1” was released on October 31, 2014 as a result of happenings on campus then and I named it “1” knowing fully well that there are some specialists in defamation of character, reactionaries, nihilists, cynics and noise-makers that will not allow sleeping dogs to lie. Here is Ojogbon wept “2” to clear the air that has been polluted with lies by our self-made comrades. My weeping this time is because of common sense that is becoming uncommon in our society, because of the people that cover themselves with garment of intellectualism without the cap of rationalism.

On the construction of the bridges that link Fajuyi to Akin…

Ivory Coast Are 2015 AFCON Champions

With both sides battling to a stalemate in the final, spot kicks were needed to decide the clash and Black Stars goalkeeper Brimah saw his decisive effort saved
Cote d'Ivoire goalkeeper Boubacar Barry was the hero for his side as they defeated Ghana 9-8 in a dramatic penalty shootout following a goalless 120 minutes in the Africa Cup of Nations final.

Barry - who appeared to be struck down by cramp on two occasions during the shootout - was only selected because Sylvain Gbohouo picked up an injury in Cote d'Ivoire's semi-final.

He saved the spot-kick of opposite number Brimah Razak, before stepping up himself to convert the winning kick as the Ivorians lifted the trophy for the second time.

Cote d'Ivoire's only previous triumph in this tournament also came against the Black Stars, courtesy of an epic 11-10 shootout success in Senegal in 1992, and history was to repeat itself at the Estadio de Bata on Sunday.

It was also a repeat success for their coach Herve Renard…

Full Text Of Professor Jega’s Statement On Election Postponement

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We invited you here today to make known the position of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the timetable for the 2015 general elections. Let me state from the outset that the Commission’s position was reached after carefully weighing the suggestions from briefings held with different stakeholders in the electoral process.
The conduct of elections in a country like Nigeria is invariably a collective venture that involves not just the Election Management Body (EMB), but also a diverse range of stakeholders, notably security agencies, political parties and their candidates, voters, as well as interest groups, such as the civil society organizations and the media. To guarantee successful conduct of elections, there are things that are wholly the responsibility of the EMB. But there are other things critical for the success of elections, which fall outside the control of the EMB.

In other words, while INEC must work hard to perfect its systems and…
