BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

Just like the birth pangs of a woman in labour heralds the innocent cry of a new-born baby; so do the travails and committed struggles of any oppressed people herald the dawn of their freedom. This is the natural sequence of events in the integral calculus that create freedom.

BUHARI, PAYMENT OF N5000 TO THE UNEMPLOYED AND THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA
