Senator Hillary Clinton has finally gained back the elusive Big Mo; Yes!  The Big momentum and the thrill are back again in her camp. The last night CNN Democratic Party presidential debate was a gift to her and stellar was her performance. Unlike the wary Senator Clinton of the past, she looked happy and joyful without rancor and bitterness. She appeared more like a friendly neighbor than as a yesterday and overused politician that is pestering everybody for recognition and acknowledgment. Her sense of entitlement was totally waned and her emerging personality as a trusted friend was transparent. With a…

  It does not happen often, but five living American presidents recently gathered in Dallas, Texas to dedicate George W. Bush presidential Library.  Political and ideological differences notwithstanding, there was a resounding conclusion that George W. Bush policy on Africa was most effective and generous especially his endeavor to combat HIV/AIDS crisis and signing peace treaty in Sudan.   When most people do contemplate on which American president is the best and true friend of Africa. I bet you, Obama and Clinton will probably come to their mind; the last person they that might think of  is George W. Bush,…
“Nigeria’s Foreign Reserve at $47 Billion. A Strong foreign reserve is good economics.”  - AFRIPOL   Beyond its cosmetics largess and intimidating attribute, strong foreign reserve plays a fundamental role in the stabilization of a nation’s currency.

A Nollywood without Oscar nominations in 2013 "Whether Nollywood wins Oscars or not , we will keep watching their movies . We have our AMAA to rate our movies by . Hollywood cannot be best friends with Nollywood because the later snatched away millions of their viewers around the world . The two movie giant houses are worlds apart . Nollywood deals with our everyday situations we face in life while Hollywood is too abstract and theoretical." - T.
