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.

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.

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).

Atiku And Peter Obi Combination

Casmir Igbokwe There is excitement in the air. There is also anxiety. It is partly because of the 2019 general election; and partly because of the prospect of having another change at the seat of power in Abuja.
