Nigeria on the edge of a precipice

  PREAMBLE The Internet has changed our world for good or for bad. Why not? Good and bad exist pari passu. And so must it be till the end of time.

(our modern houses of prayer, nicely dedicated churches and mighty…

Rochas and Uche Nwosu

  His Grace Anthony Obinna, the Archbishop of Owerri, has no apology for saying that Imo State needs a seasoned administrator to govern it and not Uche Nwosu. “What we need is a democratically elected Governor and not a handpicked successor”.
