History:Where the Igbo’s monogamists in principle?

Whilst polygamy is recognised as an integral part of the social economy of the Ibos, yet in actual fact one wife only is specifically acknowledged.

AFRICA:NIGERIA NOT IMMUNE TO DISTENGRATION, REPLY TO PRESIDENT BUHARI

No doubt the Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari is in dilemma as how a former warrior for the suppression of Biafra could be the president who presides over the disintegration of Nigeria. A country he fought so hard to keep together. Some writers of the Biafra, Nigeria civil war history, are kind to Buhari as a disciplined young Nigeria officer who did not participate in war crimes at least to the areas he commanded. While some…

How the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari cashed in on the political capital of global jihad

Some Nigeria’s analysts see Muhammadu Buhari’s emergence as the “accepted” “saintly tough-guy” Nigerian corruption killer in a different light from the general make-believe one. These analysts attribute Buhari’s final success after many failed attempts to become Nigeria’s democratically-elected president to some external influences. They claim that some powerful international figures have often meddled in Nigeria’s internal affairs to affect the outcome of events in the country. And Buhari’s recent victory at the polls was not…

NEWS:BUHARI’S RECENT ASSAULT ON THE JUDICIARY AND NIGERIA’S ROAD TO DOOM

There is no doubt that since May 29th 2015, when Muhammadu Buhari assumed the reins of governance as Nigeria’s President, little has happened to convince me that he is the Messiah Nigerians have been waiting for. From his remarks of 95percent and 5percent in respect of political patronage according to the voting pattern during the 2015 general election to his caustic and acerbic triumphal display of wrestling power from the “infidel”, Buhari has, at each…
