  1. So Nigeria has to wait for a private refinery to become operational to stop the importation of fuel when we have 3 refineries that has gulped trillions of Naira in the last 7 years to rehabilitate? Is this a joke? Is Nigeria cursed? What nonsense is this? I'm just angry.

  2. We all know this government is useless and education is the last thing they care about yet ASUU is adamant . ASUU have made and highlighted their grievances which any incoming government would automatically have to tackle first.
    So why be this inconsiderate towards the plight of the Nigerian students and even poor lecturers most of whom would be in enormous financial debts by now… just because you want to prove what to an administration who’s original agenda is to cripple the academic system of the country so as to keep the citizenries un-enlightened and poor.

    We know we have a useless government ATM so in every organization, people are just trying to help their selves survive by doing the best they can so as to keep their respective organizations/systems moving no matter how slow. ASUU should know better that AT THIS POINT prolonging the strike is positively ineffective.

    We all know this government don’t care so why drag with them when not necessary? It’s like teaching a mad man calculus.

    Stella thanks for this column jare… albeit i never leave it happy.

  3. The cabals will not allow fuel importation to stop. They make a lot from it.
    My condolences to the family sp omoni.
    Let's act now and clean up the drainage to avoid flood.
    Gov wike in the news as always.

    1. GOD pass cabals, they must bow

  4. There's no permanent enemy in politics, who could have thought that the same tinubu who did nothing but insult Jonathan from 2010-2015 ,is now seeking for his support.

  5. The should please 🥺 call off the strike
