Tweet Nigeria has accomplished so much less than its vast potential mainly because we have stood on the shoulders of dwarves. We have found the best answers to our problems, but they are all buried in government White Papers in what seems to be an endless cavern of archives. We have also found answers in the selfless studied ideas of some Nigerians whose credibility...

A state that is blessed with natural resources and talents but which has been grounded due to poor leadership. It beats my imagination how each administration since we started this present democratic...

Tweet The railroad engine has a peculiar way of announcing her metallic presence. It is by means of intermitent long notes that habitually pierce the silence of the night, and in the day time, audible enough to stand out of the ever rumbling noise of city life.
