An Article on James Ibori

LEADERSHIP: IBORI QUESTIONS READINESS OF NIGERIAN YOUTHS Former Delta state governor, James Ibori, has asked if the youths are truly ready to assume political positions. In an article he wrote recently, the former governor argued that it is not enough to demand for a generational shift in the political class. According to him, what is more important is to ascertain if the Nigerian youths have something to offer when they come into office. According to the former governor, unlike the Nigerian youth, some of the world’s leaders including France President Emmanuel Macron who was 39 years old when he was elected President and former US president Barack Obama, had something to offer before coming on board. “The election of a Macron in France may have galvanized a section of Nigerians to think t...Read More

Beyond the ‘Youth Take over Power Slogan”: Setting Agenda for African Young Minds

By James Alabi In the Yoruba proverbial parlance, a popular word of wisdom says “If you listen to the noise of the market, you will not buy anything” which literally means that “One should face what is paramount to one first before any other thing.” There has been quite unwholesome proverbial market noise about the role of the youth in governance system in Africa. While this argument persists and spreads very quickly like wild fire, there has been no argument in the direction of setting clear agenda in terms of what the youth essentially need to drive governance in a democracy. Sadly, the focus of the narrative hitherto has been that the old men must dismount the horse and their characters quit or be made to quit the scene and allow a new generation of young minds take over the stage. Whil...Read More

CALLING ALL WEBMASTERS: Is this the end of the Internet?

Submitted By a Guest The internet is under attack by the FCC once again. They will not quit. Only this time, the FCC is closer than ever to its ultimate goal, handing the Internet over to giant ISPs like Verizon & Comcast on a silver platter. On December 14, 2017, the FCC killed net neutrality rules. But do you truly understand the global implications of such a disastrous decision? These laws guaranteed equal access to the web without paid prioritization fees, unregulated bandwidth throttling, and rampant censorship from ISPs. Now these laws are GONE. The cable companies are a few short months away from doing whatever they damn well please with the Internet. That includes shutting down & blocking businesses and websites like yours if they dislike your content. If you cannot afford ...Read More

EFL Cup: Aguero heads Manchester City to victory over Bristol

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero’s last-gasp strike secured a 2-1 victory over Bristol City in their English Football League (EFL)  Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday. This was after the second-tier side had frustrated the English Premier League leaders for most parts of the match.  Manchester City, who have dished out a string of maulings in a stellar league campaign, found the Championship side a tough nut to crack. They had to wait until the second minute of added time to grab the winner when Argentine substitute Aguero slipped in to head home. The visitors had opened scoring with a penalty kick just before half-time after central defender John Stones had fouled Bobby Reid, who dispatched the spot kick with aplomb. Kevin De Bruyne’s equaliser soon after the break turned the tide. ...Read More

The White House has said that U.S. President Donald Trump will undergo a physical examination while promising to allow the results to be released. Trump will be examined by a doctor at Walter Reed, a military medical center, “scheduled for the first part of 2018,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. “Those records will be released by the doctor following that taking place,” she added.
