By Annabel Ogheneganre In the Bible book of Genesis Chapter 4, the story was told of how Cain and Abel brought offering unto God in appreciation for favour in their lives. Cain, a farmer was said to have brought some fruits of the earth as offering while Abel brought the best of the flocks he was tending. It was on record that the offering of Abel was accepted while God rejected Cain’s offering. Cain got angry and killed Abel out of jealousy. God saw the evil that Cain had…Read More

Delta 2023: Don’t Be Terrified, A David Is Coming To Town!
By Annabel Ogheneganre Since May 25, 2022 when Governor Ifeanyi Okowa cunningly foisted Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori on the PDP as the party’s flagbearer and Okowa’s eventual emergence as PDP Vice Presidential candidate, there had been some form of misgivings in the state with regards the fate of Chief James Onanefe Ibori in the party. Ibori had maintained uncommon silence which kept his supporters wondering why a man of Ibori’s clout could be so rudely intimidated and frustrated into a shocking political coma by his political son whose supporters…Read More

By Annabel Ogheneganre On Thursday June 16, 2022, at the Wadada Plaza, Headquarters of the Peoples Democratic in Nigeria, Presidential candidate of the party unveiled Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate ahead of the 2023 general election to set the stage for a North-East/South-south Presidential joint ticket.

For Atiku and his backers, the choice of Okowa was a…Read More
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. The APC on the other hand…Read More
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. It is the highest policy and law making organ of the federal government. Without the seal of approval of the Nigerian senate, the president is not empowered to appropriate the commonwealth. It is not a gathering for kids and the Nigerian senator commands tremendous respect at least all over Nigeria. It is a thing of pride to…Read More
Politics: What Is Amori Looking For?
By Annabel Ogheneganre The search for the senator to represent Delta Central as from 2023 has been a tough one. The present occupier of the seat is a man of innocuous political sobriety hitherto unseen in the land. Prior to his ascendancy to the senate, nobody would ever believe that Ovie Omo-Agege could perform this much. He has done well and PDP needs another achiever to replace Omo-Agege. Urhobo needs another ’Aghwemutuwevwi’ to replace Omo-Agege, an indisputable ’Aghwemutuwevwi’. His APC members are already clamouring for him to come…Read More
Delta 2023: And Ibori Wept
By Annabel Ogheneganre Iroghwo o… Koi! Iroghwo o… Koi! Iroghwo o… Eranvwe o o o! In those days when men where men the expression, Iroghwo o…Koi, was such an uncommon battle-cry, that calls to mind the marshal qualities of the men in the society. The expression was never heard in the mouth of children or women. Only proven warriors who have killed in battles are permitted to raise the battle-cry, either to announce their victory after some dangerous exploits in taking human heads or before the act. In…Read More
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…Read More
