Opinion: The impending implosion of APC » YNaija


Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - Just take the phrase: “impending” in the title above with a pinch of salt.  I use the word because in politics as in life, things happen – as seemingly absolute situations become redeemable and what originally appears impossible could be the catalyst for fresh opportunities.  Otherwise, the truth is that the ruling Nigerian political party, the All Progressives Congress is already imploding, it has in fact imploded; the party is in the throes of a debilitating illness. The implosion began almost as soon as the party assumed power in 2015. The APC emerged as a special purpose vehicle – composed almost entirely from second hand, used groups from the CPC, the ACN, APGA, ANPP, and a break away faction of the PDP, known as new PDP (nPDP) – even if there was nothing new about it, with the sole objective of taking power from the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the then incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan. Pro-APC persons described the APC as a child of necessity. They ...continue

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje shines in the trailer for ABC's “The Fix" » YNaija


Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - Let’s get something out of the way: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is a terrific actor. I say this because of his roles as Lock-Nah in The Mummy Returns, Nykwana Wombosi in The Bourne Identity, Mr Eko on Lost, and Simon Adebisi on Oz. In March, Deadline reported that the Nigerian-British actor was set to take up a lead television role opposite Robin Tunney in ABC’s drama pilot The Fix. #TheFix stars @Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Sevvy Johnson, and @RealRobinTunney as Maya Travis. pic.twitter.com/Qiuglw6A3k — The Fix (@thefixabc) May 11, 2018 Described as part legal thriller, part confessional and part revenge fantasy, The Fix is follows former persecutor Maya Travis (Tunney) who has left Angeles for a quiet life in rural Oregon after losing the biggest case of her career and being shredded by the media.

How many more Nigerians need to die from SA's Xenophobia before Nigeria takes action? » YNaija


Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - It is no more news that South Africa has become a dreaded place for Nigerians to visit and stay for some years now and its getting worse every year, the number of Nigerians that have been killed as a result of xenophobia driven attacks an  other shootings this year recently crossed the 100 mark, after two Nigerians were killed over the weekend. The reluctance of the Nigerian government to tackle the menace has been addressed on YNaija before but it seems nothing has changed. A confirmation of that was the recent statement credited to the Special Adviser to the president on foreign affairs Abike Dabiri-Erewa on the recent spate of attacks and the xenophobia that inspired it.

After the last major spate of xenophobic attacks in South Africa in 2017, representatives of the National Assembly visit ...continue

'Transmission Confusion': Buhari And The Ibrahim Idris Metaphor (MUST READ) - The Trent


Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - Concerning the self humiliation of Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris Kpotun, in Kano in a viral ‘transmission’ video currently making the rounds online, I have read a few commentators ask the somewhat rhetorical but needless question: HOW DID WE GET HERE? How did we get here? Really? Foolish question! Well, here is how: It started with the shameless repackaging of Muhammadu Buhari with tribal hatred, lies and revisionism by Tinubu slaves in Yorubaland with their tribalistic media houses led by Sahara Reporters, The Nation, Punch, and TVC prior to, and shortly after, the 2015 election. All the Buhari ‘transmission’ warning signs were there in the run up to the 2015 election but Tinubu Yoruba slaves and their pockets of narrow-minded allies in some other parts of the country were too far gone in their vicious anti-Igbo, anti-minority, anti-David Mark/Idoma, anti-Godswill Akpabio and anti-Jonathan bigotry to notice. In February, 2015, ...continue
