“With this achievement,  governor Obiano has earned an enviable spot in the chronicles of Anambra times.” ―Ebuka Onyekwelu As expected, the Anambra International Airport, Umueri which test flight successfully landed and took off a few days ago has drawn several commentaries.

“Racism is terrorism. Period.” ―Don Okolo The American system of government is still on the move, going into its two hundred and fifty-fifth year as a nation. It has, undoubtedly, endured.

After a dramatic mayoral election meltdown, Attorney Tony Buzbee is facing another challenge ―this time in a district court. ― Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo Rusty Hardin, an attorney, is not well-known to me, as my usual interest is in politicians and leaders or perhaps, politics and leadership.

“An anti-corrupt leader cannot possibly emerge through a corrupt electoral process” ―Ebuka Onyekwelu The coming governorship election in Anambra state has once again exposed the relentless odds facing Nigeria’s chances of development. Irrespective of how flattering some economic ideas projected to move the country forward may be, without an advanced political culture, almost nothing can come out of such an economic proposition.
