Sanusi's CBN should extent its benevolence to Igbo victims All Nigerians including Save Nigeria Group (SNG) and Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) should call on Sanusi's Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to extend his corporate social responsibility to Igbo victims who suffered mightily as result of Boko Haram’s rampage in Northern Nigeria.

The whole world is watching as Nigeria descended into chaos and uncertainty due to the removal of fuel subsidy. The social fabric of the society appears to be shifting and things are no longer at ease as protesters gathered steam and momentum. The brinkmanship between the presidency and labour is something to be given the deserving attention. Was the subsidy removal justified or ill-timed compounded with poor strategizing? It depends on who was answering the question, the government and the poor masses have different perspectives and justifications.   Financial Times of London reported that, “Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president, faces a…

They developed agricultural facilities, built modern schools, secured peace and made their people walk a little taller.The point here is not to downgrade the present day achievements made by present…

A time for leadership President Barack Obama has the stuff and what it takes to be a great American president; and the possibility of having his image chiselled on Mount Rushmore with other great presidents.  Obama is tenacious, strategic, brilliant and politically astute to join the family of American greatest presidents. But he should be ready to walk the difficult but established pathway to greatness.  For him to accomplish such a tall order he must be willing to think long term and forsake immediate gratification of winning immediate elections.  The November mid- term election is almost here and polling numbers…
