Some newly elected governors have started setting their agenda in office by visiting places needing urgent attention within their first day in office, while others are personally displaying self Portraits, ordinarily a job to be announced and shown to the public by junior press officers in the state house.






Delta State governor, Sheriff Oborevwori has done the right thing by appointing a media officer.





The new Press Secretary will be in a better position to tell us how to address His Excellency while the governor gets to grips with delivering the dividends of democracy to the resource rich Delta State where poverty is still acute and abandoned projects litter the entire state.

Former governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje may not be having it cool in the first few days of being out of office and out of power.




There was the case of a missing social media critic, Abubakar Dadiyata who disappeared without a trace.





The new governor has vowed to find out.


Interesting days ahead.





Kano State has a culture of ensuring adequate public water supply to the generality of it’s citizens. But citizens pay their water rate.


Unlike Delta State where the public water supply collapsed over 50 years ago. Individuals sink private boreholes in their homes. But in Warri, the water you fetch from it tastes of petrol mainly. It makes the business of sachet water boom. The rich buy bottled water.





Nigerians will be watching the governors as they perform.
