President Jonathan Calls For Unity At His PDP 9th National Convention Address
Buhari Should Have Stepped Down For Ribadu-Bol
We will start with your personal reflection at 60. So, let’s share your thoughts at 60, looking back from where you are coming.Well, if I have to look at what is personal to me, I can only say I thank God almighty for what he has been able to do for me. He spared my life and kept me strong in good health as well as little achievements in politics. On national reflection, political platform and in totality of socio-economic policy of the country, I’m still very disappointed and not fulfilled because of one’s dream of what Nigeria should be. On democracy itself that should have been the mother care for this socio-political re-engineering of the nation, I’m still not fulfilled because the country is still politically unstable and politically dishonest. There is lack of transparency in our electoral system and whether you talk of partisan politics or general politics as a whole, you cannot say honestly that this country is half way anywhere successful in the politics of our country; you cannot say that.

The national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has warned the federal government not to dialogue with members of the Boko Haram sect. Doing so, he said, will give room to creating an instrument of disunity in the country.
Pastor Oritsejafor gave the warning yesterday while speaking with newsmen shortly after attending the 46th annual convention of the United Church of Christ in Nigeria, otherwise known as Hadaddiyar Ekklisiyar Krista A Nigeria (HEKAN). Add a comment
Concerned Northern Leaders to FG: We Don't Want 13% of Our Solid Minerals, We Demand More Oil Money
In another twist to the debate over the current revenue allocation formula, northern leaders have rejected the move by the Federal Government to pay 13 per cent derivation funds to host states of solid minerals in the country.
Last month, speaking on behalf of his colleagues, the Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and the Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, called for a review of the revenue allocation formula ‘to reflect current realities.’The demand of the 19 northern governors, which was re-echoed by several leaders and groups in the region, stated that the current revenue allocation formula was unfair to northern states and that the oil-producing states that receive 13 per cent derivation funds were getting more money than they had the capacity to execute.

Jonathan's Counter Attack Succeeds as Bamanga Tukur Upstages Atiku's Candidate
Former Gongola state governor, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has emerged victorious at the PDP National Convention which has only just concluded at the Eagles Square in Abuja.
NaijaPundit can now confirm that Alhaji Bamanga Tukur is the new PDP Chairman.
There were initial fears that Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria's fabulously wealthy former vice president would successfully upstage President Jonathan's favourite, Tukur, especially after Atiku masterminded Tukur's humiliation at the Northeast zonal convention of the party. Add a comment
