Quotes

The former governor, whose lecture was titled "Two Faces of Despair: State of the Nigerian Nation,” also criticised Federal Government’s handling of the nation’s economy and security, insisting that government is only playing to the gallery and not being pragmatic."
It equally frowned at the "exploitation of Nigerian masses by the buyers of the electricity distribution companies who deliberately suffocated the Nigerian people by an unholy extortion by charging fees without supply."
She added: "For you to achieve what is important, you need a little bit of talent and hard work. That is what it takes to succeed. The other issue is that any opportunity you see, make good use of it."
As I pointed out in my July 17, 2012 article titled "The Case Against Nigeria's Break-up (III), "according to historical sources, it was the sixteenth-century Songhai scholar by the name of Ahmed Baba al Massufi who first used the word 'Yariba' in a scholarly article (written in Arabic) to describe people in what is now Oyo, Osun, and parts of Kwara. Hausa-speaking people copied the name from al Massifi's book and popularized it."
