I dont trust this Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Chief Mike Aondoaka. The guy wanted to interfere in the cases the EFCC brought before the court. And there was the infamous unsavory exchanges between him and Ribadu. Now, he is asking the President, Yar’Adua to stop the trial of the former Delta State governor, […]

On Thursday, the Nigerian Senate handily voted to reject the handover of Bakassi to Cameroon.Here are excerpts of the story from Punch Newspapers: The Senate said the decision by Obasanjo to sign the August 14, 2006 Green Tree Agreement ceding the area to Cameroun, was unilateral and contrary to Section 12 (1) of the 1999 […]

Prince Charles celebrates his wedding anniversary with Princess Camilla at the Jesus House Redeemed Christian Church of God. The fact that he even considered the Church at all is very remarkable.

This is utterly shameful and the height of disappointment. The Minister of Education, Dr. Igwe Aja-Nwachukwu represented the President, President Yar’Adua at the University of Ibadan graduation ceremony. And his English was deadly. He could not pronounce nostalgia, muddled up unemployment and underemployment and said that the President was ‘unavoidable’ absent.  This  is a serious and extremely shameful situation. Here […]

5 Nov 2007

I have been a fan of the public offers of the different companies in Nigeria for a while. A lot of them have been success stories. Examples include Zenith Bank, Oceanic Bank, GT Bank, and First Bank. A lot of banks had to go to the market to be able to raise funds to meet […]
