The Christian amazon of Yobe

Little girl, Leah Sharibu was one of the 113 abducted Dapchi girls. She refused bluntly to convert to Islam from Christianity and for that was held back when others were freed from boko haram captivity. The freeing of the girls was a deal between Federal Government  negotiators and the terrorists, we were told. And we […]

The food alarm by bishops

Anglican Bishops in the Ecclesiastical Province of Owerri have raised a timely alarm on a food crisis which is not imminent but already here. This shows their sensitivity to the people’s welfare and their plight as well. This is how it should be. It is very commendable. We stand firm behind this important reminder that […]

Our public transport bedlam

It is a nightmare to think of going to make use of public transportation in today’s Owerri city. This is what urban renewal in Imo state has left behind, together with a host of other avoidable, intractable problems. Owerri now is virtually in a hurry to be the most backward city in public transportation. It […]

Give us peaceful election

After all said and done, what Nigeria should be aiming for is a peaceful election. If the coming election ends in bloodshed and catastrophe, it would not have been worth the while. Anything that would deviate from a peaceful end of the election must be avoided. The people of this country value peace more than […]

The flaw with elections

The choice of the next true leaders of the country will be a formidable task indeed. This is so because any mistake about it will spell doom for the Nigerian state and its entire people. It will affect our future and can stunt our growth in the long term. There is a lot of rubbish […]

Herdsmen as masquerades

On the surface, militant killers in northern Nigeria have never been given their true names. Nigerians have always suspected, but are afraid to say that they are given false names to cover their true criminal selves and intentions. The whole system reeks of deception, deception made practically a national way of life. The populace has […]

Give Imo more taxis, buses

The availability of cars and buses for transporting members of the public is still very poor. This should have been envisaged before tricycles were ordered off the roads towards the end of last year. To aggravate this trauma of the people, the scarcity of fuel has increased cost of the product as well as cost […]


The president came to power with an unconvincing and doubtful promise to wipe out boko haram from the face of the Nigerian earth, and end the war with them as soon as possible. But that has not happened. We massively deployed there with the un-equivocal support of the world’s super-powers. But the insurgent group seems […]

Bravo Anambra State

Anambra has set the pace for the entire South east by returning APGA’s Obiano with a landslide. The significance of this for politics in Igbo land is huge. It beckons on all south eastern states to follow suit and adopt APGA as the political identity of Igbo people of Nigeria. Even if this means putting […]

Sale of adulterated fuel

Fuel (especially Premium Motor Spirit PMS) dealers will argue that they (illicitly) adulterate petroleum products, avoiding being caught, to cover cost, make profit and remain in business. If they don’t, the whole downstream oil business will go to blazes. Along with it will go the entire motoring sector. They won’t be converted about this wrong-doing. […]
