Monguno’s tales by moonlight

By Abba Gana Pen merchants are unchallengeable kings in their respective domains. They operate like emperors; determining and twisting everything as it suits their evil designs. Its common to see them invent their own rules, redefine existing conventions separate from universally accepted norms and ethics of the profession. They operate like soldiers by turning newsrooms into battle grounds against perceived enemies. Once contracted writers pencil down a word, it is to destroy a target or a stubborn client who has refused to “play ball;” a Nigerian phrasal euphemism for bribe…

By Ebriku John Friday They started the falsehood from day one… He lost a primary he keenly contested. He was actually disqualified but a Federal High Court PortHarcourt cleared him to contest. Sensing defeat. He pulled out midway shamefully to a hotel to announce himself with a concocted result that can never stand the test of time. His primary result failed the integrity test of PDP. The party rejected it and endorsed the authentic result that announced Senator Stephen Odey Ph D as a winner of September 5, 2020 Senatorial…
