My Birthday, President Buhari and Other Nigerians

My birthday yesterday was still a working day. But it was fun, especially at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island. I was in the midst northerners and we shared our political opinions and conclusions on  President Muhammadu Buhari,  Vice President Oluyemi Osinbajo, Asiwajiu Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Alhaji Sule Lamido and Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai of Kaduna State. They wanted to know if I agreed with their consensus on the incorruptible character of President Muhammadu Buhari in contrast to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the national ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).
Unknown to majority of Nigerian youths, the chickens have come home to roost.

Press Release

Real Rebuilding Process Has Begun

Following the assumption of office of His Excellency, Governor Hope Uzodinma, there is now real hope for our dear state, Imo, because Hope has come. And the actual rebuilding process has begun!

British Divide and Rule Colonial Policy Caused the Nigerian-Biafran War

I am from Igbo royalty. But I don't believe in monarchy. Because I prefer democracy.
All these glitz and razzmatazz of the grandiosity of the monarchy of England belong to the British Museum .

The Queen of England and Gen. Yakubu Gowon.
The Queen supported Nigeria against Biafra.

The day the British people end the celebration of their monarchy,  they will begin to realise the true definition of liberation in modern civilisation.
