Ede Dafinone: The Beautiful Bride For Delta Central

By Annabel Ogheneganre   As the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the most impressionable political discovery of the Urhobo nation in the fourth republic prepares to step down from the National Assembly en-route Government House Asaba, the people of Delta Central must search for a proper and fit replacement in the 2023 general election.   The two major political parties in Nigeria, the PDP and APC have been on the search with the PDP throwing up Chief Ighoyota Amori and Chief John Nani.

Why I support John Nani

By Annabel Ogheneganre, The Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is a place of power where senior Lawmakers in Nigeria meet to take decisions on how the Nigeria government should be administered.

Opinion: Wado City Movement And The Cry Of An Owl

By Annabel Ogheneganre Since the launch of the Wado City Movement, this writer has not ceased to advocate for caution in promoting the cause. In my initial remarks on the issue of name change for Warri, I stood for the status quo, maintaining as I had done in previous submissions that what Urhobo should rather do was to market the two Urhobo traditional rulers in Warri as Ovie of Warri Kingdom (for the Agbarha-Ame people) and Orosuen of Warri for the Okere people. The Ijaws could also be encouraged to…
