Buhari’s Food Self-Sufficiency Drive Is The Real Independence

The President comes before the nation with a better result than he had-shown the year before. This is an important year for Nigeria, not only because the economy has just exited recession. The fight against terrorism has turned the corner with Boko Haram pushed to the fringes of the Lake Chad, restricted to hit-and-run strikes. In this fight, Nigeria is no longer standing alone. We are being supported by our neighbours and the international community. On the war against corruption, the Pres...

In truth, the only option being presented to Buhari was resignation. To ask somebody who was under doctors’ care...
