    By Uwa Eghomeka: Soludo: A pseudo-intellectual for hire  I have taken my time to read, albeit painfully, the very lengthy article put together by Soludo and gleefully published by Sahara Reporters. When I read the article from a man who literally dropped off the surface of the earth for about 5 years, my first question was not, “What is he saying?”, rather, “What does he want?” in Soludo’s case, the answer is clear enough; or at least, I shall try to make it clear.

    By Dr. John Egbeazien Oshodi: How the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps is Becoming the Best Part of our Law Enforcement/Security System Domestically there are always indications of those who would seek to harm Nigeria’s citizens, resources and properties.

Africa had its share of honest politicians from Patrice Lumumba in Congo to Nkrumah in Ghana. Sadly Africa is yet to point to a country that has got its act together.
