Omehia Speaks on Rivers Crisis

Former Rivers State Governor, Sir Celestine Omehia, has said he has no regret over the Supreme Court ruling that ousted him from office in 2007.

How Did Amaechi ‘Shun’ The PDP Governors’ Forum?

How Did Amaechi ‘Shun’ The PDP Governors’ Forum?

Will The Nigerian Woman Ever Stand

Four times in the past 10 years, I have challenged the Nigerian woman to rise and shine. In: “Whatever Happened to the Nigerian Woman? (New Age, April 2003), I said: “Basically, I do not think that the Nigerian man is comfortable with the prospects of a woman President or Governor. They ought to give this

Private Jets For Jesus

Should a pastor own a private jet? That this is even a debate issue in Nigeria reflects just how wayward some of our Christianity has travelled, particularly since the end of the civil war and the arrival of large piles of oil money. We are good adopters, and in the past 20 or 30 years,
