But before that debt re-negotiation and restructure are the ways forward for Capital…
Less than a week after Forbes Magazine chronicled the list of  40 richest Africans in which 11 of them were Nigerians;  another different  list emerged that was unfavorable to Nigeria.   The quantification and tabulation by Forbes, maintained that  Aliko Dangote was still the richest person in Africa for two consecutive years, 2011 and 2012 respectively.

It was an interesting and engaging article - Ngozi Iweala: Nigeria's weakest link-   written by one Sonala Olumhense. It was not that the piece was illuminating the encumbrances in the affairs of Nigeria’s contemporary democratic dispensation that made it compelling but for the acute misunderstanding on the role and achievements of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in her capacity as the minister of finance for both Obasanjo and Jonathan administrations.   Just like the writer of the above aforementioned article, before I proceed any further, I would like to congratulate the Honorable minister of finance, Lady Dr. Okonjo-Iweala on making the…
For those of us who have followed President Obama political career from when he became a US Senator from Illinois to the time he became President of the United States in 2008, clearly recognized the fact that, the Barack Obama who debated Governor Mitt Romney during the first presidential debate fall short of being the political juggernaut we all knew him to be.   During the first debate, his aura was recoiled, most often holding back with an absent minded appearance. To sum it all, the real President Obama was missing in action – as the assertive, warm, friendly, and upbeat Obama…

  Mitt Romney  Policy on Africa  Needs Specificity Mitt Romney, Republican Presidential candidate erstwhile ago took a foreign trip to Britain, Israel and Poland to bolster his foreign policy credentials but there was no African visit.  Mitt Romney has an overview policy on his website on Africa. But Romney was less specifics on his African plan.

The fundamental role of government, which is without doubt the most important function of government, is the protection of life and property.  Anambra State’s center of normality is being swept away and distorted by insecurity. The adverse effect of this phenomenon contributed immensely to the retardation of economic growth in both urban and rural areas of Anambra State.  Capital flight, poor harnessing of human capital and dwindling of home coming of Anambra Diasporas can all be attributed to insecurity in the state.   To liquidate the ugly head of kidnapping and armed robbery in Anambra State, the massive unemployment must…
