“I hope you have a copy of the election results. The constituents, for example, gave me 97% cannot in all honesty be treated on some issues with constituencies that gave me 5%.” -       President Muhammadu Buhari.   The above quote by President Buhari painfully summarises the philosophy of Nigeria’s governing elite.  To them, the equality o [...]

Aba
The title of this post was inspired by the late Chinua Achebe’s personal history of Biafra, ‘There Was A Country’.  In the book, Chinua Achebe talks about the events that led to the unsuccessful secession of Biafra from the Nigerian nation, as well as the resultant civil war.  The book is a good read for anyone willing to as [...]

In the wake of the blatant rape of justice by the Justice Adeniyi Onigbanjo-led Election Petition Tribunal in Abia State this week, many have wondered why the rest of the nation seems to be silent on the assault going on in Abia State.

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 [...]

Perhaps 2015 is the best year yet for the people of Abia state to elect a sure-fire governorship candidate into the Government House. Even the Peoples Democratic Party will not want to miss the opportunity in putting its best foot forward –by choosing a candidate that is not just remarkable but exemplary.
