10496938459?profile=RESIZE_400xThe political arena has witnessed a massive boost with key presidential aspirants of the two major parties leading their teams to different states of the country in a bid to get endorsement by revered Traditional Rulers, Governors, political leaders and delegates for the primary elections expected at the end of May, 2023.

While there are assurances in some quarters, on the other hand, there are no definite commitments as delegates prefer to either wait on the promptings of the party leadership or

10432665056?profile=RESIZE_400xSince the airwaves began to be bombarded with top politicians in Nigeria, making their intentions to run for the highest office, I have watched with keen interest and tried to study the various speeches which in some cases received accolades and in other times were ignored by most Nigerians. The latter group has cogent reasons to do so, considering how many times we have read long speeches in the end and dashed the hopes of expectant masses.

 

While not trying to diminish any of the Presidential a

Little by little, the haze on the political landscape is clearing and thawing. The race for the apex and most coveted political office in Nigeria, the largest democracy in Africa, is gathering momentum. With regards to the primary contest within the fold of the All Progressives Congress, APC, the emerging picture of what to expect has now gone beyond the domain of speculation.

It is by now, crystal clear that the APC, as the ruling party, is leaving nothing to chance in its efforts to secure anot

The Chairman, Council of Elders of Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo Worldwide, Chief Richard Ozobo has reiterated the need for the Igbos to produce the next President  in 2023 and not the division of Ndi Igbo,  stressing that no tribe in Nigeria can win the Presidency without alliances.

Chief Ozobo who expressed his view in an interview, went down memory lane and maintained that there are 7 Igbo states recognized by Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.

Frowning at the propaganda being spewed in some section that there are

A pan Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has described the former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of Transport Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as a bona fide Igbo man, and such more of an Igbo man than a Lagos based All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain, Joe Igbokwe

 

The group who warned against the disparagement of Igbo political leaders, said campaigns of calumny, casting of aspersions will be unsuccessful, added that,“Verbal diarrhoea and vituperative predispositions of Jo

The Cry of the Hangman

10261765077?profile=RESIZE_400xWho is Joe Igbokwe to determine who is Igbo and who is not?

Does he know that Amaechi's people lost their ownership of property in the same Port Harcourt because of the war?

Does he know that one of Amaechi's kinsmen, Late Jackson Mpi was Chairman of Eastern Nigeria Council of Chiefs?

Is he also aware that Amaechi's people were denied access to Government House in Rivers State for over 35 years simply because they were "tagged not to be trusted with power as Igbos"?

Does he also know that the frustr

Refugee reality

There is not much doubt that refugees are unwelcome in the US. Black and brown refugees are the least welcome. Donald Trump owes lots of his popularity to his manifest hatred of refugees from what he describes as “shithole countries”. The media gives us the impression that the majority of these refugees are trying to get into the US, the UK, France and other European countries.  Well the fact is none of these countries (except Germany) are in the top ten of hosting refugees. The ten host countri

Will Smith should be in jail

Will Smith committed a crime.  He assaulted Chris Rock. There were tons of witnesses. He should be put in jail and should not depend on Chris Rock pressing charges. If I, or anyone else like me, had done that, I would be jailed. But, Will Smith is rich and famous, so, even though he is black, he is above certain laws. Also, this adds to black-on-black crime which is terrorizing so many blacks here in America. By not arresting him, the police failed to do their job.

This is a very grave incident a

The Carnage and the Cabal

It's been the system of governance in our nation where for every government, a cabal runs its affairs.

My experience over the years and10250849486?profile=RESIZE_400x based on verified information reveals the stranglehold on elected Government officials by those who either sponsored their election or those who were appointed into high profile positions. They are usually family members and familiar friends.

These groups of people decide what document the President or the Governor sees and approves. They unashamedly flaunt th

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

     I was catching up with a good friend of mine, when the conversation turned to the current social scene.  He brought up something very profound—but also troubling—on the issue of homosexuality.  “Do you realize,” he noted, “how quickly society has gone from ‘God made me this way’ to ‘it’s MY choice’, in a matter of a few years?”

     That was a ‘thought nugget’ that came over the plate like a fastball.

     One of the sure signs of the end times—just before the rapture of the church—is the fac

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

I also have a challenge for our young people.  Those twenty—and thirty—somethings who seem to have more time for nonsense with their tech toys than finding out about their own history.  Young person: you should KNOW that Black History is not ‘just’ for one month a year.  Do your homework on the reparations issue and find out how many in YOUR family were slaves back in the day.  Reparations is THE issue that should be on the front burner with the generations coming up behind us.  Young person: do

War is not the answer

War is not the answer

Where are the peacemakers?

War is stupid. War is uncivilized. War is evil.  In the war between Russia and the Ukraine, there will be no winners. War is not the answer. Peace is not the answer too. Of course peace is better, but is not good enough. It is too neutral. The answer is goodwill.  Seek goodwill between adversaries. Instead of war. Russia and the Ukraine should strive to become friends. This is a worthy goal.

Countries are egging them on. Threats are flying. Where are

Honest Republicans

Are there honest Republicans? If so, how can they stick with a dishonest, racist liar like Donald Trump as their leader. He is blatantly dishonest with absolutely no redeeming qualities. According to the Washington Post, in four years as president, Trump made 30,573 false or misleading claims, which amounts to 21 false statements per day. 

His dishonesty should make him ineligible for the presidency. Do honest Republicans believe everything he says? Do they believe anything he says? If he is the

Back In The Day Economics With Mike Ramey

BACK IN THE DAY ECONOMICS WITH MIKE RAMEY

      Let’s get to the lowdown on employment, or as it is better known as ‘getting a job’.

      There are two things that job seekers need to keep in mind about the economy.  Either you have an ‘employer’s’ market (where employers can afford to be a lot more selective about whom they hire for a job), and an ‘employee’s’ market (where employees are in short supply and can not only pick and choose where they work, they can get top dollar for their services)
