The recent assurance by Chairman of Indepen­dent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof. Attahiru Jega that the February polls must hold is indeed welcome

Judicial workers, under the aegis of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) have embarked on a nationwide indus­trial action to press their demands

It is election season in Nigeria. Tes­tosterone-charged and power-hungry politicians are on the rampage seeking political offices to implement their vile agendas

The Archbishop of Enugu Anglican Province and Bishop of Enugu, Most Rev (Dr.) Emmanuel Chukwuma did not only condemn Mbaka, but also asked the Catholic Church to summon and sanction the Adoration priest for his unguarded statements. 
Mbaka calls himself priest, prophet and king. 

There are so many areas where Af­rica’s largest and most dynamic economy derives its strength and one of these borders on geographic diversity. Is Nigeria a single country?

Sometime before the Anambra State Gubernatorial Election of 2010, I was privileged to have audience with Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the ferocious catholic pastor of Enugu, with a gubernatorial aspirant. His residence which stood just atop the Adoration Ground was quaint with locally fabricated heavy iron doors built for maximum security. He was quite a genial, gentle fellow at close range, almost the opposite  of what he posed in public.

Nigerians should have a choice not only to jump from poverty to starvation, but also an opportunity to choose the prospect of prosperity, full employment, free tuition, freeways, and a full health care system in a functional democracy.

That Nigeria continues to suffer from lack of reli­able electricity supply is no more news.

Reverend Father Ejike Camillus Mbaka was friends with Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani when the latter was governor of Enugu State. Then things went bad between the two of them towards the tail end of Chimaroke’s first tenure in 2002. As the 2003 governorship election drew near, Father Mbaka made a ‘prophetic declaration’ having ‘heard from God’ concerning Governor Chimaroke.

What a coincidence!

Two former military rulers with yet-unex­plained stupendous riches, who both live in controversial hilltop mountains after public of­fice, threw verbal darts at President Goodluck Jona­than the same day, on the same topic – corruption.

It is nine months since the Chibok Girls were ab­ducted and the question is: Will some Chibok couples be grandparents without knowing it?

I would be grateful if the TIMESEARCH could help find out from the Federal Ministry of Transport La­gos why the processing of my pension was yet to be forwarded to the Federal Ministry of Establishments for processing to enable me receive my pension from the Federal Ministry of Transport.

 I would be happy if the TIMES SEARCH could help find out from the Federal Civil Service Commission Headquar­ters Abuja what it takes to be promoted these days while in the civil service.

Every Nigerian surely knows who to vote for and why they have to vote. Not because of the sweet stories and promises that we read and hear every day, but because Nigerians take their political decisions based on previous and present ac­tions taken by the candidates and their character.

Nigerians long yearned for it - a two party based democratic process.
From the First Republic, politics had begun to tend towards it when the original largely regional parties allied into the Nigerian National Alliance and United Progressives Grand Alliance for the 1964 General Election, the first in independent Nigeria. In the Second Republic, the four opposition parties tried in vain to form the Progressive People’s Alliance as a united front against the National Party of Nigeria for the 1983 General Election. 
People Who live in difficult circumstances need to know that happy endings are possible” - U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor.
We have come this far!!! We are a nation whose tumultuous journey has been very rough and odious. In law enforcement parlance, there is what we called deliberate indifference; it is a criminal neglect of the vulnerable individual or people in a precarious situation. Our leaders are guilty of this criminal negligence. 
Among high ranking Security personnel since the menacing activities of Boko Haram in Nigeria is “security consciousness”. In short, no speech is, complete without highlighting security as every body’sbusiness. 
Thus, for this reason, the populace is further advised to take extra step to police their immediate environment, and suspect every unusual movement.

I have been waiting for 2015, to tell the American CIA to shut up. A couple of years back, they were emphatic in their prediction that Nigeria would break-up in 2014 – exactly 100 years after a descendant of their cousin, Lord Fredrick Lugard, deceptively amalgamated the Northern and Southern Protectorates to form what is today known as Nigeria.
