Page 21:- Re: Unnecessary thuggery in Ondo at APC restructuring forum

 

I just read a piece by The PUNCH columnist, Niyi Akinnaso, on the unfortunate occurrence at the zonal programme organised by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, on the raging debate on “restructuring”, in Akure, on Thursday, September 21, 2017. I was utterly disappointed at the writer’s barely disguised slant to explain away acts of brigandage, in his characteristic hagiography entitled, “Unnecessary thuggery in Ondo at APC restructuring forum” in the September 26, 2017 edition of the paper.

Back Page : Fighting Islamisation of Nigeria

 

The Christian Association of Nigeria is, for the billionth time, raising sanctimonious alarms against the perceived Islamisation of Nigeria. This time, the charge is that the Federal Government wants to sneak in an “Islamisation” agenda through floating a Sukuk Islamic bond. CAN, with a righteous indignation, claims that Nigeria is a secular country and the government ought to be taking a neutral stance in matters of religion.
