A Dummies Guide to Nigeria’s Political Future By Douglas Imaralu

As we settled on a plastic table beside a see through glass in a Victoria Island class C restaurant, Bankole and I simultaneously sipped from our N200 per cup fresh juice, reminiscing on our good old university days, business opportunities, and Nigeria’s fast-changing political environment. We had had an academically nonchalant, fun-filled time in school, but now, our lives were taking shape, as our Nation’s. Bankole had towed the entrepreneurial route, while I was busying myself with professional studies and working in the media. “In 20 years power would have changed hands completely,” he said,...

#KakandaTemple ~ Ekiti Epiphany: Politics Beyond Idealism

The most amusing thing about Nigerian analysts, the outspoken observers of our political evolution into a pseudo-democratic nation, is our shared hypocrisy in reacting to outcomes of predictable public issues. This can be seen, most recently, in our responses to the outcome of Ekiti governorship election. In this build-up to the next presidential election, I have personally transformed from being an uncompromising idealist into being an unequivocal realist. You will recall I even wrote, frustrated, in my Friday column at one point, to congratulate Goodluck Jonathan as 2015 President-elect – a year in...

The report was prepared by The Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN), formerly the Nigerian Accounting Standards Board (NASB). The council operates under the Ministry of Trade and Investment.
