Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `amp_init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `schema-and-structured-data-for-wp` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Taxing hunger in Iregba

Taxing hunger in Iregba

(Published in the Nigerian Tribune on Monday, 13 May 2024) I do not believe that the president of any country will deliberately wreck everything. Their problem may be arrogance or ignorance – or arrogance in ignorance. Or they may be worshipping wrong gods or feeding their gods with what they must not eat. You remember

Abobaku, Japa and Tinubu ‘Haters’

(Published in the Nigerian Tribune on Monday, 6 November 2023) “We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it.” I do not know under what condition Bob Dylan wrote that song line. All I know is that it serves my purpose as I sit here at the bank of Nigeria searching

(Published in the Nigerian Tribune on Monday, 24 July 2023) Given today’s state of the nation, it is likely that both Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr. Peter Obi are thanking their stars that they were not the ones declared as our elected president on March 1, 2023. If they were, each of them would have

On El-Rufai’s axe and Nkrumah’s letter

(Published in the Nigerian Tribune on Monday, 3 July, 2023) Immediate past Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, recently waxed proverbial and made a Facebook post which sounded like a loud complaint: “The axe forgets but the tree remembers…They are the axe.

Asari Dokubo in Aso Rock Villa

(Published in the Nigerian Tribune on Monday, 19 June 2023) In 1948, Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, thought of the best way to protect his country’s security information from invasive media toxins.
