In line with its pacesetting tradition, THISDAY Editorial Board members will on Sunday x-ray the first 100 days of President Muhammadu Buhari in office as Nigerian president.

The Board Members who will be expressing their views on the administration of President Buhari, the first Nigerian to defeat an incumbent in a watershed election held six months ago, include Chidi Amuta, Eddie Iroh, Waziri Adio, Maryam Uwais, Sonnie Ekwowusi, Eugenia Abu, Tony Ipriye Uranta, Peter Ishaka, Bisi Ogunbadejo, Angela G. Attah, Ekanem Etim-Offiong and Olusegun Adeniyi.

According to the Editorial Board, what will be presented in the widely-acclaimed Sunday edition is not necessarily a report card of the president in the last 100 days but a reflection of the hopes and aspirations of Nigerians for the new administration.
“We are conveying, not the position of the newspaper or its publisher, but the individual opinions of the editorial board members as we seek to expand the frontiers of journalism in our country,” said Olusegun Adeniyi, THISDAY Editorial Board chairman.

Noting that all over the world, newspapers are known for taking positions on contemporary issues within their environments in anonymously authored pieces that officially represent the views of the publication, Adeniyi, however, said “there are those who argue that to be taken seriously, views and positions on critical issues must be attributed to known authorship for the sake of transparency and accountability.”
