Nigeria Will Emerge Stronger By Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola
Mouthing words you neither believe nor practised as governor

This is a cruel joke, retired Brigadier Oyinlola. After using Osun indigenes as ladder for almost two terms that were stolen through the ballot box, you now misrepresent yourself as a democrat to the world. You did not “serve” Osun State indigenes and it’s a big j”oke that’s not funny to mouth all these ill-regurgitated ideas of continuing to serve humanity in your usual unalloyed manner” blah blah blah. You may serve the PDP, Brigadier but the world at large knows what that evil party has done to Nigeria and her citizens these last several years, and a failure at state level where no development took place despite billions expended cannot claim to be for “total societal development”. What your party stands for is unprecedented corruption; Nigerians have first-hand knowledge of your mis-rule, the world knows what PDP stands for. emotanafricana.com

I opened this with trepidation but after checking the signatories, I feel relieved. MKO left many children and widows but with one widow, a handful of children and his brother signing this, this cannot be taken too seriously. Even if all survivors, including family stars accept Jonathan’s Greek gift, the fact remains that it was neither well-intentioned nor an adequate memorial. As for the illegality of the imposition, that remains for those versed in law. How about the massive cost implications of this name-change when there are greater and more appropriate ways to bestow honor on MKO that would not come with the cost implications of changing the name of a university? And being a Ph.D, the president knows what this name change means to those with UNILAG qualifications. The gravitas of UNILAG will never be matched by the new name. emotanafricana.com
Reuben Abati and the Amen quota By Adeolu Ademoyo
Like a basketball player who is running out of time and despite his feet – or even one – touching beyond the playing court he still passes the ball, Reuben Abati, unlike the young ball player who will recognize why the whistle goes against him, is now a very pathetic shadow of his self who does not realize the magnitude of the depth to which he has sunk. This “Amen Quota” – sounds but is nothing like piano’s Amen Cadence – illogicality is a new low for media “spokesmanism” but especially for him, personally.
As for Oritsejafor and his ilk in a group I’ve long concluded as “men of Nigeria’s god”, he knew how he got to his position as head of Nigeria’s Christian Association and it is to such a devil that he must have sold his soul that he must answer. ALL NIGERIAN INSTITUTIONS: church, universities, traditional chieftaincy, etcetera have been corrupted. emotanafricana.com
