APGA is a movement, not just a political party 'Nkea bu nke anyi' is not a slogan Nkea bu nke anyi (This is our own) is not just a jingle, or a party slogan, it is a movement.

Ezenwaka had a larger than life presence in our lives, his lively voice, the smiling face, the...... read more
Anambra 2021: This Uba, Soludo debate must hold! This is a true life story. It happened in Nigeria about two decades ago. I know because it happened before my nose in this journalism industry I love so much and where I have chosen to live and die. A certain billionaire politician wanted to own the most influential newspaper in...... read more
Oye and his detractors   A thirty minutes chance meeting with Dr Victor Oye, the National Chairman of APGA, was very revealing. He was a reporters delight; infectiously confident, eloquent, passionate about his party, but most surprisingly,  deeply religious. What was supposed to be an inquisition into the impasse bedeviling the party gradually snowballed into...... read more
Umeoji, Soludo and the verdict of equity in APGA There was this drunken lawyer that I met back then in Asaba, Delta State, as a reporter with The Guardian.

The Igbos are under siege in their country I am shocked that the Igbos are not speaking up at the apparent siege laid on their land by uniformed person of different categories.

Ibrahim Attahiru! In which other country but Nigeria? In which out of the 195 countries in the world is there a replication of the Oshodi-Apapa gridlock?

Petroleum Sector Reforms: Let’s say no to the cannibals There is no doubt that the downstream sector of the nation’s petroleum industry requires fundamental reforms to restructure its operations and reset its priorities and national objectives to align with globally accepted standards.

Femi Adesina: If 'no confidence' votes could sack Buhari, heroes would have been made I must confess that I’m one of the original wailing wailers, the group of Nigerians Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman, derisively tagged early enough in government with that sobriquet to depict their aversion to the emergence of his boss as the President of Nigeria. I must confess the day Goodluck...... read more
Abuchi Anueyiagu: Salute to a 'Good Man' @60 There's none of my friends that I've disagreed more than him. There's none I've quarrelled with more. Yet we've remained together.
