LIVE FOREVER, STAN LEE

The news of Stan Lee‘s passing would be another one of those I easily surmised to be the reason why I found him trending on Twitter when I woke this morning. This isn’t because I tend to the morbid, rather because I knew he was old, and he wasn’t one for getting up to no […]

AMBODE’S HEADACHE

Days back when Lagos’ Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode returned from the headquarters of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Abuja, armed with his Expression of Interest, as well as Nomination Form to contest for re-election in next year’s election, I thought his re-election was all but signed, sealed and delivered.
