Just some few thoughts

It was a mildly dull evening. The week long work was just beginning to take a toll on me.

Buhari sacks Kachikwu as GMD NNPC.

Written by: Nwagu Everest. When Buhari first northernised the Defence Sector with his appointment of Northerners into offices of National Security Adviser,  Minister of Defence, Chief of Army Staff, and DG DSS, some of us raised alarm that the President has an hidden agenda but we were tagged wailers.
