Arthur Nzeribe: Celebrating the Nostradamus of Nigeria's politics @ 79
By Collins Ughalaa For those who have chosen to cast themselves in the mould of detractors to the legendary politician, community leader, statesman and consummate investor, the Nostradamus of Nigeria's politics, Chief Senator Francis Arthur Nzeribe, Damamnze, Ogbuagu, Oshiji, Oyimba, there is something they cannot take away from him. That.....
Positioning Nigeria for a Prosperous Future, By Kemi Adeosun
Since the middle of 2014, when the price of crude oil fell dramatically, Nigeria’s finances has become challenged. This is not hard to explain: we’ve historically depended on crude oil for as much as 70 percent of government revenues, and 90 percent of foreign exchange earnings. The outcome – pressure.....
The Clown in Imo Government House
By Shaka Momodu, 24 In October 2015, I wrote an article titled, ‘Okorocha Puts Imo in Chains.’ That piece was written as a direct response to Okorocha’s incompetence, maladministration, mismanagement of bailout funds, failure to pay workers’ salaries and pensioners’ entitlements, and the state’s poor infrastructure, particularly in Owerri. His.....
PDP, Charter of Equity and the Raging Propaganda Against Ihedioha, In whose Interest?
By Cyril Aririguzo, KSM Ordinarily, I would not have bordered reacting or writing anything over the recent publication shared to virtually all the media houses in Imo state by the self-serving Imo faction of the ousted National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff which was.....
Rochas and the Liberian children
BY BEKEE IGWE Against the backdrop of recent euphoria and backlash in the media against  the Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha for hosting the South African President, Jacob Zuma, attention shifted from a very important part of activities marking the 55th birthday of the seeming  controversial politician. Notably, focus.....
Tackling ownership opacity in the extractive sectors
I am honoured to have the privilege of addressing you at this important event. Let me start by commending President Joko Widodo and the government and the people of Indonesia for graciously hosting this conference, and for their remarkable hospitality since we arrived. On behalf of all who have come.....
Rochas Okorocha Is Killing Me, By Azu Ishiekwene
    But are citizens really that helpless? In a region where women resisted unfair taxation by the colonial government in 1929, I’m at a loss why 88 years later and with far better educated, more enlightened and prosperous citizens, an Okorocha would take the people for a ride, grinning.....
Deconstructing Nigeria’s Debt Narrative, By Kemi Adeosun
National debt is an emotive issue, as well as an economic one. The thought of saddling future generations with unserviceable debt, is not conscionable and certainly not part of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led-administration’s agenda. It is therefore, worthy of an intervention on my part to explain the history, the short-term.....
Hon Arthur Egwim and the Battle on Erosion Control in Ideato- North
“Ideato may not exist in the next 20 years”-Green GlobeBy: Ifeanyi OnyekachiThe devastating effect of gully erosion on innocent victims whose lives and property are threatened by this natural, or is it, artificial concurrence is better imagined than experienced. People living in erosion prone areas, such as some.....
Why Nigeria Is Among the Greatest Countries In the World, By Yemi Osinbajo
When you look at the sheer size and the diversity of Nigeria, we have the potentials of becoming one of the truly great countries of the world and I think that with the hard-work that we are seeing and with the right leadership – leadership committed to the people, committed.....
Biafra has not been defeated
By Wole Soyinka On July 6, 1967, civil war broke out in Nigeria between the country’s military and the forces of Biafra, an independent republic proclaimed by ex-Nigerian military officer Odumegwu Ojukwu on May 30 of that year. The war killed more than 1 million people, many of whom died.....
Restructuring, By Pius Adesanmi
I am a supporter of legitimate claims to self-determination and maybe I have read too many books to subscribe to the silly myth of the indissolubility or indivisibility of any nation-state that Professor Osinbajo and the Nigerian elite are peddling. However, do not go to Biafra, Oodua, and Arewa and.....
