Columns and Opinions across Nigerian Newspapers


Let the $67bn Debate Begin - I think that it is a pity that President Goodluck Jonathans government declined to take up the challenge of the former Minister of Education, Mrs.Obiageli Ezekwesili, to a public debate on the $67 billion savings that former President Olusegun Obasanjo left behind in 2007. I do not think that our government ought to have run away from the debating ring. They ought to have accepted the challenge of a rigorous public debate and allow the Nigerian people to listen to it and make up their own minds about who was right and who was wrong.
