HISTORY B42015:Gboyega Isiaka Isiaka was the former Group Managing Director of Gateway Holdings Limited, an investment arm of the Ogun State government. He hails from Imeko-Afon Local Government Area in the Ogun West Senatorial District. He contested the 2011 governorship on the platform of PPN and emerged third in the contest, losing to Amosun. He was originally the PDP governorship candidate before an order of Justice Abdul Kafarati of an Abuja Federal High Court altered the ticket in favour of Olurin. Undeterred, the investment bankerturned politician wants to run for the governorship again; this time around on the platform of LP. He is regarded as Daniel’s loyalist. He may, however, find it difficult to unseat the incumbent because his Senatorial District has a political history of presenting multiple candidates for gubernatorial elections.

It was quite embarrassing and very discouraging as an Itsekiri man and most annoying was government’s statement that there was an anomaly. It’s quite shameful. Do you see it as a set back for the Itsekiri ? It’s gradually showing that the Itsekiri are being schemed out of things in the Nigerian polity which is an evidence of lack of leadership.

Tony Nwajei FOR BEING BLACK Spanish security sets up Nigerian businessman, seizes his hotel Refuses him re-entry into the country, family in a fix When Dr. Osita Okoro from Egbu Owerri in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State left the shores of Nigeria in the late 1990s in search of greener pastures, he had a ray hope of achieving great success. He first found himself in a neighbouring African country of Gabon, where he spent about a year before moving over to Cameroon, another neighbouring country. After about 18 months in Cameroon without the desired success, he felt that Europe was the destination. And so, in 2000, he found himself in Spain, where his dreams finally came to reality. Before he moved over to the European country of Spain, he was erroneously made to believe that the country was a land flowing with milk and honey, but when he found himself there, he realized how wrong that impression was. However, undaunted and determined to succeed, he soon engaged himself in a worthwhile busine ...

Triumphal Home Coming of Ochendo. The Grand Patriot of Ibeku. By Eddie Onuzuruike. The inspirational words of the Holy Bible ring louder and louder as we ponder the dictates of Romans Chapter 13 verse 7: ‘render therefore to all their dues, tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honour to whom honour.’ In the agrarian culture and tradition of the Ibeku people, located today in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, South East geo-political zone of Nigeria, with anthropological affiliates and Diasporans in Nsukka, Ohafia Abam and the rest of the world, when a son of the soil achieves a great feat such as leading his people successfully to a battle in war, hunting down a great and exotic animal or showing supremacy in wrestling matches, you celebrate him in many forms like Ima Nzu or Ike Aji. In today’s scientific world, the emphasis has shifted from the muscular to innovative leadership in politics and commerce, more so in rare and high achievements in s ...

Even more pathetic is the fact that she escaped the mayhem of Boko Haram in troubled Bauchi State, only to be savaged by the foul, filthy hands and mind of a son-of-the-devil lurking at home, in the heart of Igboland.

According to the Leadership newspaper, three teenagers between the ages of 8 and 10, have been caught in the Badarawa area of Kaduna North Local Government Area of Kaduna State, for their indulgence in *** activities. The young offenders were nabbed when the mother of the 8-year-old boy became curious when she discovered that her child was always seen with twenty naira note almost each passing day, which she said was not given to him by either parents.

The boy further described to the mother that the two older boys use to climb him from the back after he is made to pull down his trousers, then he will feel a sharp pain in his *** after which they will show him a nail.
There is a passage very common among the Ibeku people in the present-day Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State. It is a passage used to draw home a conviction over an issue in dispute. It is put thus: “lekwa onye ohii, lekwa ihe ozuru” grammatically interpreted as “behold the thief as well as his loot”, while in the literary term it connotes that evidence will surely mark the end of an argument or doubt over any issue. For some inexplicable reasons, many unscrupulous characters have sprouted within the past few years and assumed commentators on a catalogue of issues comprising both the serious and mundane with Abia in focus. There has been a contraption of intellectually bankrupt pessimists who have wished that the stagnation that was Abia remained the lot of the state. Unfortunately, Governor Orji being conscious of history has already chosen his part while posterity will be his judge. Then their usual mantra was the swan-song of non-performance. Notwithstanding all, Governor Theodore ...
