𝐀 𝐋etter 𝐓o 𝐇onourable 𝐍yesom 𝐖ike

By Ugo Egbujo Your name says you are a man of strength. Some say you are a strongman. Others call you Nebuchadnezzar. You say you are a man of capacity, character, and integrity. Hon minister, he, who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day. The gods are not amused when men play god. For some mistakes, you must count your losses, lick your wounds, and let sleeping dogs lie. The best military commanders understand tactical retreats. You had prophesied the formidability of this young governor who didn’t like…

Rethinking Pursuit Of Wealth: Encouraging Nigerian Youths To Embrace More Meaningful Path

By Maxwell Menkiti Ngene (PhD) In recent years, the pursuit of wealth has become an all-consuming obsession for many Nigerian youths. The desire for material possessions, status, and power has led some to adopt a “by any means necessary” approach, often compromising their values and integrity in the process. However, it’s essential to recognize that this relentless pursuit of wealth can come at a great cost, not only to individuals, and their families but also to society as a whole.

Ogige Nsukka Market Demolition: The Impending Collateral Damage

The surging sea of heads after the Ogige Market demolition.

Delusions Of Obedient Movement And Obi’s Political Harlotry With Atiku As The Epitaph To His Political Obscurity

By Nwankwo T. Nwaezeigwe, PhD, DD There is often a sense of respect when a man sleeps with another man’s wife and makes every spirited effort to keep the knowledge away from him. But when a man sleeps with another man’s wife and not only boldly make it known to him but expects the same man to applaud him for sleeping with his wife, it not only portrays the depth of mental slavery and subjugation but also the height of arrogance in power. This is just the case between Alhaji…

If not that President Bola Tinubu is a Muslim, I would have thought that his other name is Zaccheus. The biblical short man called Zaccheus was a tax collector, deeply hated by the people. Although the first name of the executive chairman of our Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) is Zaccheus, he is innocent of the recent taxes the Federal Government imposed on Nigerians.…

Why I Am Angry With Ohanaeze Ndigbo

By Mazi Omife I. Omife MON (Mbuze Mbaukwu) omifelord@gmail.com Ohanaeze is one organization I respect highly. Ohanaeze is to Igbos what Arewa is to the Hausa Fulani, and what Afeneifere is to the Yoruba. Every tribal association has an organization to protect its interest, just as Ohaneze Ndigbo is supposed to protect the interest of all Igbos. Unfortunately, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has become political. Ohanaeze of today is different from Ohanaeze led by the late Justice Eze Ozobu, former Chief Judge of Enugu State, and different from the dream vision of…
