The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria

4 December 2021As preparations for the next general elections gathers momentum, a former Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has raised fears that Nigeria may split before 2023 because of the sad realities in the country, including security challenges.

He said Nigerian leaders would always want to remain in office even after their tenure because of “greed, wickedness and stupidity”.The cleric stated that one of the obstacles that had been threatening democracy in Nigeria was that incumbent governments did not want free and fair election.

Onaiyekan stated these in an interview withSaturday PUNCHin Abuja.He said, “There is no reason why the spate of insecurity should continue like this till 2023. There is no reason why we should not be able to finally settle this problem before the year 2022 is over.

Fuel Subsidy Removal: A Tricky Policy Response to Win 2023 By Dr Nasir Aminu | Sahara ReportersThese challenges show that the government can't efficiently dole out N5,000 to those who need it, and I don't doubt they already know that. The policy is cleverly designed to trick Nigeria ns to vote for the government's continuity in 2023 while the money goes elsewhere. It is that mythical promise that never gets delivered, and we have all been there before. We sef know but we are waiting for them to come

Ex-minister tasks PDP, APC on ceding 2023 presidential ticketElder statesman and former Aviation Minister in the First Republic, Mbazurike Amaechi, yesterday, said the only way an Igbo man This is the political modus operandi EVERY young person that has been denied a great nation should adopt going forward.

With the way APC is playing politics and with Buhari's nepotistic and despotic leadership, it's very possible. A leader whose ego and tribal dominance is more important than the unity and progress of multi-ethnic and religious nation as Nigeria shouldn't have been a president. I love it that way abeg. Make we split
