  • Nigerian Tribune Editorial:  The rising crude oil prices Nigerian Tribune Editorial: The rising crude oil prices
    THERE is growing concern about the critical challenge of citizens under the age of 18 voting in elections in the country. Electoral umpires and politicians in many jurisdictions are usually accused of orchestrating a litany of irregularities during and/or after elections. But an irregularity that borders on underage voting like the one that happened during the recent local council election in Kano State is a patently premeditated one that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will be hard put to…

    The West has left us with the template for economic growth and worldwide domination: the franchise system or the selling and use of patents, symbols etc. in short, branding. McDonald, Pepsi Coke, Coca-Cola, 7UP, KFC, Dominos are brands well known which people buy, so also is General Electric, Toyota, etc. Now they have developed to technologies for communications, Google, Facebook, YouTube, Uber, etc. all depending on our own fascination and should I say closeness and obsession with the use of…

    Writing about the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and its leadership is one and the same thing. EFCC is its leadership and the leadership of the commission is the commission. Dissecting the leadership of Mr. Ibrahim Magu at the EFCC is an enterprise that is akin to wielding a double-edged sword. If one is not careful about presenting the facts of any particular matter or issue, one runs the risk of being accused of either managing the reputation of…

  • Butland blunder costs Stoke at Leicester Sports Butland blunder costs Stoke at Leicester
    An own goal from Stoke City captain Jack Butland cost his side the chance to move out of the Premier League relegation zone on Saturday in a 1-1 draw at Leicester.Despite being largely outplayed before the break, Stoke took the lead thanks to a curling long-range effort from Xherdan Shaqiri just before half-time. The visitors were then looking comfortable until England international goalkeeper Butland fumbled Marc Albrighton’s cross into his own net 20 minutes from time.Butland did at least make amends with a stunning save from Riyad Mahrez and Harry Maguire and Matty James also hit the post as Stoke held on for a point. Paul Lambert’s men remain 19th, but move to within a point of safety.Leicester edge above Burnley into seventh on goal difference, but will be disappointed not to have won for the first time in four league games after laying siege to the Stoke goal in the final stages. Despite their dominance of possession, two tame efforts from Mahrez that trickled wide were the best the hosts could offer before half-time. And they were caught by a sucker punch on 43 minutes when Shaqiri strode onto Joe Allen’s pass before bending the ball past Kasper Schmeichel…
