    By Akintokunbo A Adejumo:  An Irritating Apologue – Ibadan People Do Not “Serve” the Same Leader Twice I always take exception and umbrage at hearing that slogan “Ibadan ki sin eniyan le’meji......". (Ibadan people do not serve the same leader twice). What about other Oyo State people? It is as preposterous as it is denigrating.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has chosen the 71-year-old retired army general, Muhammadu Buhari, the iron fisted and no-nonsense disciplinarian, to challenge President Goodluck Jonathan for the presidency next year. Buhari, as we…

    By Farouk Martins Aresa: The fear of a strong African man How will the rest of the world react if Nigeria chose leaders wisely? Elect a principled President, not obsequious to international gratification. Do not fear his views on world affairs; just respect him to demand for the same socio-economic factors that elude our young men in Diaspora. The same way Italy, British, Germany, Poland, Mexico, China, Cuba, and USA do. Champions of world injustice must not fear young African men. If no world leader calls out, we must. Police abuse…

Its implementation allows services and sales industries to conduct financial transactions, receive payments and provide value added services via a specialised app on their mobile phones, which in turn helps to improve customers experience and free up valuable real estate that would otherwise be dedicated to the regular POS countertop.
