I hope the new investors will not embark on asset stripping. We don't want a repeat of what Anosike brothers did to Daily Times. They even sold Stock exchange building, which used to be one of the properties of Daily Times.

I recall that sometime in the year the House of Senate called for the sack of that woman in charge there; Ms Onagoruwa and the same Presidency resisted all that and said she was doing a good job!

Why can't GEJ be man enough to take the tough actions in this country?

But if its to whip the common man with scorpions he will be so ready to do dat! Mcheeeeew!

At times, I ask myself can anything good come from our leaders? Are they ready to move the country forward? Are they prepared to do things differently?
When will our leaders become selfless?

The contract to Manitoba Electric was sanctioned by the National Council on Privatisation (NCP) chaired by the vice president, more than two months ago, but the company was not allowed to assume full control of TCN by the old management, appointed by the Ministry of Power.

BusinessDay learnt that the contract was cancelled by the president on Sunday, upon a memo submitted by the Director-General of the Bureau for Public Procurement, Emeka Eze, who has been exercising the powers of the Bureau without safeguards of a non-existent National Council on due process, as provided for in the enabling law.
