Chido Onumah and Godwin Onyeacholem

The call on Bukola Saraki, the senate president, to assume the position of acting president because the president and acting president were allegedly out of the country, was not only contrary to the provisions of the constitution but had all the elements of a coup d'état.

Finally, it seems there is light at the end of the tunnel in Nigeria. Corruption is now firmly in the focus of a man who could for ever change the face of politics and indeed a country. Ibrahim Magu is taking on the big guns and he has no intention of backing down, not matter who or what the criminals employ to cover their actions.


Nigerian lawmakers will soon pocket $45 million as “wardrobe allowance.” All that - and a lot more - in a country with a minimum wage of about $80 and where more than half the states have not paid workers for months. Pathological greed!
