Analysis: Oshiomhole and the Crisis of Public Morality

  By Sunny Awhefeada The greatest tragedy to befall Nigeria is the lack of public morality that has become the hallmark of those who aspire to leadership.

The cesspool of corruption called NDDC

Not a few Nigerians are amused at the theatre of the absurd playing out at the Niger Delta Development Commission.

Opinion/Analysis: Keyamo,The Sinators, Magu And Other Matters

  By Sunny Awhefeada     Festus Keyamo must have joined politics as an idealist with a big dream of how to serve the Nigerian people and liberate them from poverty and ignorance.

Memory Of A Nation In Distress

By Sunny Awhefeada   Childhood remains for many a moment of healing nostalgia to which one can always escape and get recreation, albeit momentarily.

The Downside of COVID-19 on Humanity

Coronavirus has led to reduced pollution, re-emerging wildlife and plunging oil prices and shown the size of the task facing humanity. But once eradicated, Covid19 will leave long, profound marks of its destructive passing; the epidemic will have damaged worldwide economy for many years and marked our memories forever. I’m convinced that we shall speak of a “Pre–Coronavirus” era and an “Post-Coronavirus” era.
