  With the new bench warrant for the arrest of Mr. Innocent Chukwuma issued by an Ikeja Special Offenses Court, Nigerians are once more debating on whether GTBank and Buhari hate Ndigbo or not.

  As the nation groped in fuel darkness during the Yuletide season, the Nobel laureate’s distraught words perhaps best described the shame and tragedy of it all.
