This is a very good analysis of our problems.Nigerians don't read.They are busy plotting how to loot too. The solution to Nigeria,s problems is a Jerry Rawlings of Nigeria to rise up and clean up the mess and start a fresh.Take a look at the transformation in Tanzania where the new President Magufuli is doing wonders.Here is a no nonsense guy driving himself to work, help workers clean up the streets ban ministers from riding expensive vehicles, ban them from traveling 1st class going abroad for business etc. My brother, Nigerian problems are too many. These members of NASS who were former Generals,Governors and Dep. Governors are there for themselves and not to better the country. Look at the make up of the Senate and the House.Saraki,the thief who should be in prison is thei
OUR attention has been drawn to your statements in Vanguard of Saturday, June 10, 2017. You are alleged to be in support of the call on the Igbo to quit. It is unfortunate, grossly unfortunate, that a scholar of your calibre will be so partisan as to be unable to see the wisdom in retaining Nigeria as a corporate entity. I know you have, in the past, been anti-Igbo. One would have thought that our education exposes us to a level where we can live even with our enemies. You said in the alleged publication that, “each year up to the time Nigeria gained its independence, none of the two regions East and West was able to produce for its self. I mean none of the Western and Eastern Regions had the money to effectively run the affairs of the region until they got financial support from the Nort

Dino Melaye at 43, he's a millionaire & already a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with fleet of exotic & expensive cars worth millions of Naira in his garage & he refers to them as toys.

I am unable to pinpoint aptly how the concept of organising an economic roundtable in Ika land gave many of us a kick. I also cannot decipher what qualifies me to be part of Ika Village Square, IVS, the engine room of Ika sons and daughters that has become the platform that accommodates all manner of persons not connected by political, social or clannish affinities. I do not need to dissipate energy praising the eggheads who created the arena that made Ika Economic Summit a reality. After all, it would have been a disservice if they had failed to use their God-given talents to better the lots of their people. That there will be an all encompassing summit where the problems, progress and prospects of Ika Nation will be under focused is no longer in contention....
