For those who know what went down during Dikko's years at custom, the returning of N1.5b is a major insult, that's money for the boys. Which is likely why the EFCC is insisting on continuing the prosecution throwing the plea bargain into the dustbin.
2. Dikko's quest for soft landing was what compromised Brig Gen Ja'faru Isa (rtd), Buhari's man for NSA job in 2015.
Mysterious import waivers, seized container rackets, auto rustling & all kinds of economic crimes all organised at the top.
All customs warehouses became malls.
3. So bad that when the present Sole Admin came on board & read out the riot act, 5 DCGs resigned in one day. Dikko boys were the elite squad who made things happen, personnel only watched as rules were set aside. By this act, Dikko may have open the door for full investigation.

American elites have once again made those senseless decisions they've taken in the past decades among countries that has only made our planet more unsafe, only this time its at home. Everyone is taking a dump at Trump, but at what cost?
2. So some thousands entered congress, misbehaved & are being arrested on charges that takes only weeks or months in jail. But Trump is being vilified by both Parties & the Biz world. Forgetting that 74 million American voters are riding behind Trump, a group he did not create.
3. Trump only took advantage in 2016, something the pugilists never saw. Which was why the Hilary flop was spectacular. These 74m folks believe they've been cheated out of the presidency & the man who speaks for them is being hounded. Question is; Will they all just fizzle away?

As a Kaduna bred, I've experienced all the riots that made the town a hotbed. From the Maitastine of 1982 to the Kafanchan of 87, Zango kataf of 92 & Sharia of 2000. After the crisis, govts set up investigative panels, who turns in reports later.
2. But not once was there even an attempt at implementing the recommendations of those panel or give justice to the victims by prosecuting those fingered. Similar attitude trails all uprisings in Nigeria, this helps to understand the LASG approach to handling the endears crisis.
3. Over the decades, Nigeria has made nonsense the truth of ''Cause & Effects'' in all spheres of our lives. People know they can get away with the most heinous crime if they play their ''cards'' right. Law & order are seen as suggestions and not the rule guiding the society.

The bird App is assumed to be for the well educated in the society but the trend in Naija twitter indicates contrary, more worrisome is how pedestrian issues are given high attention. And the main losers seem to be the progressives/ Buharists/ APCist.
2. For the months I've been fully active here, I observe that each time the progressives are gaining traction on any trending topic, all the opposition do is to introduce a diversionary topic & bingo,the rest of the time is spent on a useless matter. 3 examples will do for 2021;
3. A kid insulted Nigeria because he's gotten abroad. The defense for naija was resounding from all over, then ''they'' introduce the gains of migration to divert the issue. The original issue was travel to anywhere but don't curse ur homeland. So it ended without a clear win.

So 15 people died in a car crash in Kaduna with reports from FRSC but the media reported it as bandit attack. Unfortunately, all the presidency could say is; The media should Stop fake news. Well when it comes to terrorism, the impact goes beyond clicks & RT
2. The countries where acts of violence are exceptional are profiled by both global rating firms & investment/ hedge fund managers. They collate and feed these whole media figures into a standard template for determining good investment destination. So with our media obsession
3. With clicks & blood, actions devoid of patriotism; the harm they are causing is simply to keep us on top list of violence prone countries which results in FDI investors taking their funds some place else. If the media won't help the nation grow, they should stunt its growth

After the school kidnapping in Katsina over the weekend, many handles were grandstanding in their trolling of Buhari & condemnation of our security personnel. More are even making it a political affair.They sound that way cause they do not reside in the North.
2. The error is thinking these terrorism & banditry case is a northern fight, therefore ''let them face it''. As it presently stands, the North is the buffer zone taking the heat from these marauders and stopping their advancement down south. Making it a 2023 politics is fatal.
3. Helping your neighbor put off the fire raging his house is the best way to safeguard your own. Note that every region is only hours away from another, so folks are not far from these conflict as they assume. Our call to duty is to Support our military with info & appreciation

1.Two women were allegedly called kidnappers & before anyone could say pim, they were burnt alive. These & similar barbaric cases have gone on for years silently without moves by govt to stop it, this is how DISREGARD FOR THE LAW start & destroys society..
2. Someone on the street alleges that another someone is acting like a kidnapper & without allowing those trained to sieve the truth, the accused were burnt alive. That it happened is horrible but that its seen as normal tells more about who we are than we want to admit.
3. This accusation could have been anyone, irrespective of your standing in the society, caught in the wrong place, you are gone. In 2016 a man had a broken down car & wanted help but was wrongly labelled as BH & killed. Well he turned out to be an eminent Prof with ABU Zaria.
