At inception, TERRIFIC HEADLINES promised to focus on a broad spectrum of the global community with emphasis on Nigeria, Africa and indeed the whole world. We disclosed that our activities and publications would always be in good faith, and for future generations, in recognition of virtues and values that are worth reading and recording for posterity. Therefore, we shall sensitize Nigerians on their rights, privileges and obligations and to also influence the citizenry to embrace peaceful conducts and progress of the polity. We equally asserted that we will entertain only issue-based discussions grounded on merit, patriotism, fair play and justice. Therefore, our publications have been chiefly directed at influencing the citizenry for improvements and better standards of living and conducts, through sensitization and advocacy activities. We don’t do gossips. For the next few weeks, TERRIFIC HEADLINES will publish the views of notable Nigerians and scholars of repute as a means of educating the government and the governed. Accordingly, we have lined up erudite scholars and experts in their different callings to express opinions about wide-raging issues that are beneficial to the society. These include Prof. Tunde Adeniran, OFR, Nigeria’s former Minister of Education, later Ambassador to Germany, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, CFR, OCRT, former Foreign Affairs Minister of Nigeria, former United Nations Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs & current Chairman, Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy & Development, Abuja, Nigeria & current Chairman, Governing Council, Bayero University, Kano, Prof. Michael Omolewa, president of the 32nd Session of UNESCO General Conference, respected communications specialist Dr. Yemi Farounbi, and Rogba Laluwoye, mni; a retired bureaucrat and former Permanent Secretary. We open the discourse today with an opinion by Prof. Ibrahim Gambari. It is expected that these opinions would go a long way in encouraging proper periodic explanations of the need to re-engineer policies and plans of government in public interest and bring the citizenry closer to government.
