For the past decade, Nigeria has encountered one of the most ruthless domestic terrorism in its history; kidnapping, banditry and proliferation of violent gangs, undermining its sovereign and corporate existence.
From October 8, 2020, Nigeria witnessed an unprecedented revolt of its youth against police brutality, bad governance, injustice and whatever constitutes the bane of development to the nation.
The #EndSARS protest which lasted for 12 days this past October has exposed how fragile and delicate the fabric of Nigeria social harmony is. For too long, government officials, the president, Muhammadu Buhari, inclusive, have glossed over the fault lines of the country.
After series of controversial polls, Nigeria revved up to salvage a measure of confidence in its electoral process with the conduct of the September 19, 2020 Edo State gubernatorial election.
Nigeria will on October 1, 2020 turn 60 having gained independence from British rule. But the milestone has been plagued by protest and call for a general strike by the country’s foremost labour center, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.
The 2020 Edo governorship election has been lost and won on Saturday, September 19. On Sunday, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announced Godwin Obaseki, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as duly elected.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently appended his signature to the Companies and Allied Matters Bill, CAMA Act, a law, government believes will provide lots of business-friendly advantages for small businesses and start-ups when implemented.
