Winners&Losers does a roundup of the day’s major happenings by distilling the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ of the day’s news cycle ie good or bad news. As always, you are welcome to agree or disagree sharply below!



Rochas Okorocha

The governor of Imo state, lavishly televised his ‘State of the Imo’ address today – and won the hearts of TV viewers and timelines across the country.

He seems to know the right things to say – all police roadblocks to be off, police to focus on public safetry rather than private security. Good day for him.



The artiste officially announced her split from her long time label – managing to avoid scandal, drama and attracting more than enough love. For now, at least.


Banky W

His blistering rejoinder against a website he insists mis-characterised a recent performance won the day – getting him a lot of empathy.


Man who shot daughter’s laptop

According to an MSNBC poll, Tommy Jordan, the man who violently responded to his daughter’s complaint on Facebook is popular with Americans.




Is Nigeria becoming a country where bombs are no longer breaking news? Blasts in Kaduna killed at least one policeman yesterday.


Justice Salami

An Abuja High Court agreed with Governor Segun Oni today and gave a go ahead for the controversial jurist to be tried for perjury.



On the one-year anniversary of the popular uprising against the country’s monarchy, the government pushed back against protests with focus on restricting media access.


News Gingrich

With no money, no wins and no momentum, it is clear that – at for now – the former American Speaker is yesterday’s news, in the media at least.



There was cause to be worried as the president formally signalled his intention to borrow N1.3trn – despite an earlier promise against more debt.
