They won’t give simply because we didn’t do any work but we are entitled to it because parents pay for second term which we all know starts from January to April. As school resumed on the 21st September ,2020. Many thought they would pay full salary to each staff as we were not given April salary and for complete six months,no dime was given to any staff. I’m…

One of the biggest projects of the Buhari administration is the Second Niger Bridge, Onitsha, Anambra State. Despite the fact that the south east did not give the present administration its votes in 2015 and 2019 elections the south eastern zone is by far the major opposition to the Buhari government, yet the Second Niger bridge is the biggest and most challenging infrastructure project of the administration. The existing bridge over the Niger River dates back to 1965. It serves as a major road connection, bridging the cities of Asaba on the west bank and Onitsha on the east bank and is part of the Trans-African Highway between Lagos and Mombasa in Kenya, in addition to being the main east-west connection within Nigeria. The Second River Niger Bridge is part of a new motorway ring, which aims to minimize traffic congestion on the old bridge and to strengthen the entire…

Labour Suspends Strike, Deregulation Stays, FG Halts Electricity Tariff Increase My sleep was interjected as I search for the outcome of the meeting between Labour and FG for reasons personal to me. Things are hard. Things are extremely hard but we will get to a state where we’ll have nothing to spend as a nation if we continue with the subsidy regime. I accepted the superior argument that deregulation is the way after I had spoken against it. I listened to Sanusi Lamido Sanusi when he spoke on it as the CBN Governor. I listened to others too who are not supporters of this government including the Cameroonian (even though, because of politics, he ate his word partially, I have taken the real substance when he congratulated FG for removing subsidy months back). Many didn’t take note when it was removed because oil price was lower then. Subsidy wasn’t just…
