Robert Mugabe Travails And The Lessons To Draw -By Jerome-Mario Utomi

  When one is favoured with longevity, says my grandfather, he must in the same vein contend with one out of the these two inherent probables. If the individual is not met with a flood of blessings, chances are that such a fellow may be visited with torrents of afflictions during this extra or ‘injury […]

  Nigerian ethnic groups are enduring the pains, rather than enjoying the gains of unity. From 1960 to date, successive governments, both the militarily imposed and the democratically elected, has declared Nigeria’s unity non-negotiable. Double-edged, the willingness to retain a united Nigeria is contrasted by the unwillingness to allow the nationalities negotiate their terms of […]

The young lady’s death was avoidable, and who knows, maybe her spirit is already haunting a UK hospital and another one in Nigeria.

In the last four weeks, we have looked at the divine authorship claims of both the Holy Bible and the Koran. In conclusion, we shall be asking the Muslim apologists a few questions which we humbly hope they would honestly oblige us. Surah 7:158 described Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) as “al-nabi al-ummi” i.e “the unlearned prophet”. […]

  The downfall of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015 after bragging for years as the biggest political party in Africa was down to pure stupidity, ignorance, and greed. More than two years after and with no lesson learned from that epic crash, greedy PDP stalwarts are once more boasting that they are ready […]

The 36-year-old regime of President Robert Mugabe is obviously in its twilight. Intra-party rivalry over who succeeds the nonagenarian leader is rife with incessant purge of dissidents.
