The misconceptions of governance among citizens of  Anambra state is that good leadership is popularly judged by road construction, sinking of borehole, and payment of salary. Apparently, Anambra governors take advantage of these mundane expectations and continue to run around a circle instead of taking the bold leap forward.

Millions of Nigerians are celebrating the death of Abba Kyari, in a most dramatic and downright startling manner. I have thought about Kyari as a person and how power can shape people, and this is what I believe: Perhaps, any one of us could become tomorrow’s Kyari, who was lured, exalted, and killed twice, by power.
