    I hope they are not asking for amnesty from the Government. The only reasonable discussion is a way to let the people have their Caliphate, period.

    Buying up all the media houses and waving millions under the nostrils of under-paid journalists cannot hide the fact that Baba- not Obasanjo- would have been ashamed of his readiness to compromise every decency to ascend the throne.
    Where Awolowo maintained a consistent commitment to the farmers and other workers by providing an escape route for their children through education, the owl is obviously only interested in making more and more money from any state that falls prey to his party through excruciating taxes and levies. When he came for votes as a senator in those days, he could not be described as a millionaire. Now he is richer than Osun state but would not spare that state his merciless taxation machinery.
    Can anyone who has read the history books imagine Awolowo being amenable to desperado manoeuvres like attempting to worm his way to the office of Vice President by negotiating a deal that requires the wannabe Vice President signing a resignation letter before the election?
