Except there is a change of plan, one of Nigeria’s
super female minister and very corrupt government official, Mrs. Allison
Madueke would be joining the publishers association as all plans have been made
by her to float a national newspaper which bears the title, ‘The Union
Newspaper, using one of her numerous front.
The paper which is expected to start as a weekly from
November 2013 before rolling out its daily print on January 2014 will be
Nigeria’s most expensive newspaper publication, as all the pages for its
entertainment, fashion and style as well as sports section will all be pull out
gloss pages.
The minister we gathered took the step in view of the
2015 general election which she wants to be retained as the petroleum minister,
should Mr. Goodluck Jonathan coast to victory. According to a source, The Union
Newspaper will serve as a shield for her against other traditional newspapers
and online newspaper which are likely going to kick against her nomination. Scarier
to her is the online newspaper that she is scared of; hence, prominent online
reporters have been penciled down to be employed, with fat pay to go with it.

The newspaper has its operational headquarter in
Lagos, a move which is meant to counter the ‘western press’, who are mainly
opposed to her ministerial appointment. More editors from other newspapers are
already being lured to join the Minister owned newspaper, with pay ranging from
N300, 000 to N400, 000 monthly, making it the highest paying newspaper job in
Sub-Saharan Africa. The Abuja office will be opened before the end of November 2013.
