APGA’s Disgraceful Race To Extinction

Casmir Igbokwe Prince Ifeanyi Ezeabasili’s confidence was infectious. His ambition was to represent Oshodi-Isolo Federal Constituency II, Lagos, in the House of Representatives. He went on road shows and did some other things to mobilise his constituents to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs). To him, no party would beat the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in that constituency in the 2019 ...

Peter Obi: El-Rufai Should Take A Look In The Mirror

By John Joseph Hayab Happenings in our dear Kaduna State for over three years now, especially some recent statements by the Governor, have compelled me to speak as a citizen and a stakeholder who believes in the unity and diversity of Nigeria.

Re: Bishop Nwokolo And Rest Of Us

By Rev JB Okafor We write not to argue with one so called Rev Iloegbunam because he is not a priest of the Anglican Church nor Diocese on the Niger. The Anambra state government under Chief Willie Obiano should come out plainly instead of making use of masquerades and pseudo writers. But whoever allows himself/herself to be used should remember ...

Bishop Nwokolo And The Rest Of Us

By Rev Zacheus Iloegbu The impression given by a couple of write-ups in both the traditional and social media is that the Diocese on the Niger, which is the official name of the Anglican Diocese of Onitsha, is that the ecclesiastical body and the Anambra State government are embroiled in a controversy over the ownership of a swath of land ...

Fayemi And His “Never Again” Mantra For Ekiti

By Segun Dipe “Ekiti has been through a horrible wilderness experience in the past four years.

Nigeria Must Go?

Casmir Igbokwe Ghanaians want Nigerians to go. South Africans say Nigerians must go. Libyans had since kicked many Nigerians out of their country. Unfortunately, even Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, also asked his countrymen who want to go to go. In 1983, under President Shehu Shagari, Nigerians felt that Ghanaians were bugs in their bed. They asked them to go. The ...

Will Tomorrow Be Better With Atiku/Obi?

Achilleus-Chud Uchegbu Doris Day would have responded to the above simply saying che sera sera(whatever will be, will be). So many artists have made beautiful melodies reminding me and you that no one knows tomorrow. Of course, no one knows tomorrow. Not you and not me. Not even your regular prophet and prophetess. He/she only makes a guess, often, a permutation. ...

Whither Art Thou David Umahi?

Casmir Igbokwe The hullabaloo was really unnecessary. He is the chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum. Hence, you would expect that David Umahi would be the first person to hail the nomination of former Governor Peter Obi as the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). But he chose to oppose it on the flimsy excuse that the presidential candidate, ...
