Is It Because It Is Buhari: North Mustn’t Suffer And Smile?

Mustafa Yahaya, (LinkMoment). I marvel at the way and manner we think in this country, worst of it the way we think in the north. It is just a few months ago that we all continually lambasted president Jonathan's cluelessness, I referred to him as the "drunken master of Otuoke", and nobody harassed me, and now because they fear the power...

Saving Lives Saves Dollars – By Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

Who is responsible for child health in government? The answer is everyone. The buck shouldn’t stop with health ministers; protection of child health needs to be a concern for all government, and all governments.

Why Has The Much Expected ‘CHANGE’ Changed Negatively? – Joe Nnachi Okoroafor

Their enthusiasm was overwhelming! Their ecstasy was approximately uninterrupted. They actually wanted change; but did not properly define the change they wanted. All Progressive Congress (APC) and Buhari came with an offer. It was an offer of 'CHANGE'. They offered to almost magically change everything, including making 1$ = ₦1, as well as stabilizing the oil price among others. They deployed...

Why Jonathan Continues To Soar Globally – Igwe Emenike

Igwe Emenike, (LinkMoment). Since leaving office, Jonathan has continued to enjoy the appreciation of the undeceived civilised international community. He has garnered one award after another. How can a man who is vilified by the main stream media at home be a subject of international adulation? Something definitely is wrong. It is easy to decipher. The ethnic, prejudiced, mercenary and fraudulent Lagos...

The Agony Of Defeat Of The Nigerian Biafra War – Dr. Peter Ejirika

Dr.  Peter Ejirika, CPA, (LinkMoment). It is absolutely paradoxical for one to naively suggest that there was no conquered and conqueror in the Nigerian Biafra war.  The Ante Bellum Events in the Eastern Segment of Nigeria strongly reaffirm there is a distinct winner and looser in that war.  Consequently, the Igbos collectively consider it inappropriate to create a political upheaval...

Abia State In Crisis Moment: Political Perspective – Chukwuemeka Aribe

Chukwuemeka Aribe, (LinkMoment). God’s Own State has become a private inheritance for a few families in the last sixteen years. The thesis of objective governance is designated to find its revolving content on democracy as framework of ruling or leadership implementations, but the constructs had been a trend of obvious mismatch. It is not in my interest to blame or criticize...

Injustice Suffered By SE And SS Ethnic Groups Is Sufficient Justification For Biafra – Khalilul-Lah

Khalilul-Lah The Third, (LinkMoment). "The only person beating drums of war is the Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

Bureau De Change Operators Were ‘Bad Samaritans’ Too – John Izuka

John Izuka, (LinkMoment). Mrs. Chrisitine Largade, rightly or wrongly seen as a Bad Samaritan by many, is the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Chief (Bad Samaritans - apologies to Cambridge Professor Ha–Joon Chang). Her recent visit to Nigeria was not what many presented it to be. It was not a solidarity visit but a fact-finding mission; an audit. She came to...

Donald Ekpo, (LinkMoment). "….for as long as the Old Eastern region remain in disarray and not united, self-determination of the region will remain impossible." – An anonymous retired Nigerian Army Chief.

Biafra, A Secession Bid Or Ethnic Ranting? – Azibapu Lawrence

Azibapu Y. Lawrence, (LinkMoment).  Igbos would have been freely supported if only they claim, from the onset that their Biafra was an Igbo ethnic struggle. But unfortunate they mapped part of the South South as part of territorial demand for secession. That territory involves our ethnic groups so will speak and let the world know our stand. Igbos might be mis-guided...

N82 Million Naira Dinner For Soyinka: A Moral Question?

Dr. Austin Tam-George, (LinkMoment). Prof. Wole Soyinka’s reaction to the scandal of the 82 Million Naira dinner held in his honour by the Rotimi Amaechi government in Rivers State is at once disappointing and depressing.

Election Re-Run Is Now Impossible In 2015 Abia State Gubernatorial Race – Alex Otti

Alex Otti, (LinkMoment). Here are the prevailing Facts I have already told people; The game plan of Okezie/PDP in Abia after they rigged the gubernatorial election to subvert the will of majority of Abians is to ask Okezie to use the opportunity provided by the court proceedings to win the heart of Abians, especially in areas they encountered stiff opposition like Aba, etc. They knew...
