Because our generation needs a voice

An era of change

In just a little over two weeks, our representatives-elect will be sworn into office.  After months – for some vigilant few, years – of gruesome campaigning, these apostles of change or continuity will start – or continue – the task of building Nigeria into a country worthy of the appellation “big brother of Afri [...]

The time for change is now

We cannot be angry enough at the goings on in Abia State.  It will be the height of irresponsibility on the part of our people if we allow the present crop of low quality individuals to, having raped our state sore, impose a leadership bereft of ideas and original thought on us. While we may have previously acceded to the wisdom of our politi [...]

Thoughts on Abia…

The tragedy of Abia State is not that we have a governor who falls short of having even the barest leadership traits needed for leading an electoral ward.

In my opinion, the success – or otherwise – of the APC in the coming election at the presidential level lies not so much in the choice of it’s presidential candidate, but in that of the running mate.

          My dear Abians, On Tuesday, the 18th of November I had a meeting with the APGA faithful in Umuahia.

Such is the yearning for change [...]

On our girls, Boko Haram and the Nige...

Sadly, I do not believe that the over 200 abducted Chibok School girls will return. I know this is a harsh thing to say, but with all due respect to a hopeful nation and grieving families, there has to come a time when we must face the ugly truth that Boko Haram was never, and has never been interested in a peaceful resolution of the prese [...]

As we decide our fate

Abia is at at crossroad. Whatever decisions we take with regards to the 2015 elections will determine the direction of the state for the foreseeable future. If we elect as governor, a person whose love for and commitment to Abia supersedes parochial considerations, we will begin our march – even of tortured – towards the great [...]
