The PUNCH: The opposition lawmakers in the National Assembly have said there is no going back on their resolve to impeach the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), if he fails to address the insecurity in the country within six weeks.


The Guardian: There are worries that the living conditions of Nigeria’s civil servants will further degenerate if the Federal Government accepts the governors’ proposal calling for the premature retirement of civil servants, who are above 50 years.


This Day: In the last twelve and a half years, spanning the period from 2010 to the first half of 2022, Nigeria’s power grid suffered at least 222 partial and total collapses, a THISDAY analysis of industry data, mostly from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), has shown.


The Nation: The gulf between Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike deepened at the weekend. The governor’s camp alleged that the former vice president was playing “a divide and rule” in the opposition party.


Daily Trust: Call and data tariffs may increase by as much as 100 per cent if plan by the federal government to hike consumption tax on telecom services scales through.


Daily SUN: The statements by the Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, that security challenge rocking Nigeria is a global phenomenon and not peculiar to Nigeria and that parents should plead with members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), who have been on strike for over five months to go back to class because Federal Government does not have money to settle them and was not prepared to borrow to meet their demands have drawn angry reactions from a cross section of Nigerians including representatives of some ethnic nationalities.
