Only madmen can change Nigeria

E-mail Print PDF

By Bukhari Muhammed Bello Jega

“You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future.

That’s why the package of decisions which came out of the conference in Cancun may well be this year’s most important Christmas present.

By Abdul-Rauf Musa

All things being equal, Kaduna State will have a new governor in the next six months to steer the ship of the state for another four years. Needless to say, the ruling party, the PDP, which has been in power for 12 uninterrupted years, would want to maintain the status quo, while the opposition parties, especially the General Muhammadu Buhari-led Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) are determined to stop it from making it to the Sir Kashim Ibrahim House for the fourth consecutive time.
