Dr. Okonjo-Iweala is Nigeria's greatest link not weakest

Written by Emeka Chiakwelu.

It was an interesting and engaging article - Ngozi Iweala: Nigeria's weakest link-   written by one Sonala Olumhense. It was not that the piece was illuminating the encumbrances in the affairs of Nigeria’s contemporary democratic dispensation that made it compelling but for the acute misunderstanding on the role and achievements of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in her capacity as the minister of finance for both Obasanjo and Jonathan administrations.

UNIPORT four and jungle justice in Nigeria

Written by Hussaini Kwari.

The extreme level of human cruelty and wickedness visited on the four students of the University of Port Harcourt by the Aluu-Omuokiri community in Ikwerre Local Gover-nment Area of Rivers State, over alleged theft of mobile phones and laptops, should give every Nigerian a cause of concern. This is the crudest use of primeval jungle justice one can ever imagine. Add a comment

Achebe; Stirring up a desirable controversy

Written by Professor Nwosu.

PROF. CHINUA Achebe’s latest book titled: There was a country: A personal history of Biafra”, has expectedly stirred up an important but desirable controversy, notably from the disciples of late Pa Obafemi Awolowo.  This was predictable.  Achebe, true to his character will be unfazed by the insults and abuses, but will welcome criticisms. A writer of his stature should be used to all these. Add a comment
