Triumph/Trust Editorial convergences

Yes, Yes, I know I promised to post updates from my interviews with the director general of the censorship board and VP of MOPPAN. Bear with me, I’m having technology (namely NEPA and internet) problems. But I just wanted to make a quick post noting an interesting convergence between a couple of editorials I have noticed in the government owned Daily Triumph, appearing a few weeks later in the Abuja Based Daily Trust. Now, this isn’t necessarily an unusual thing. After all the report I started this blog with was published in about four different avenues (with the publication’s knowledge that it was elsewhere on the internet).  However, the voice and the tone of these editorials is remarkably similar, and I saw this same Mohammed Mahmud greatly defending the earlier Asabe Muktar/Murtala on the Finafinan Hausa listserve. Could they be one and the same?

    we in khartoum are surprised for the bad treatment of Kano pilaars admin & fans tawards Great Hilal of Sudan while they are in Kano for their match while we showed them the Sudanese hospitality when they came to sudan ( where are the morals of islam in Ramadan )
    we are sorry to tell them that we The Millions fans of Hilal r not happy & they should face the same treatment & put them in tough stress when they came to khartoum to face Merikh of Sudan. & Insha allah Hilal of Millions & Merikh will be in the golden square after Merikh beat Kano pilaars in Omdurman 4-0
