TEARY RIPPLE-EFFECTS, SAD REALITIES CAUSED BY GROSS WICKEDNESS OF NIGERIAN POLITICAL LEADERS AGAINST ITS CITIZENRY

image-31422
By Zik Gbemre Often times I wonder if Nigerian political leaders at all levels of Government really understand the level of poverty and hardship daily experienced by the majority of the Nigerian masses.

  By Zik Gbemre Without mincing words, I can categorically say that in the entire history of Nigeria’s Political leadership, whether military or democratic administration, President Muhammadu Buhari can be said to be the only President/Head of state, whose appalling and distasteful ‘disposition’ and actions, have constantly undermined those who supposedly elected him into Office, as well ...

image-30468
I am an ardent follower of Nigerian politics, especially the because of its murky nature. Having read series of write ups on the emerging political brouhaha between Obaseki and his ousted god-father in Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, I have come to an un-researched conclusion that politicians in Nigeria would stop at nothing to get what ...

image-29992
By Zik Gbemre I have often repeated severally that no foreigner can effectively and efficiently develop our Nigerian country for us, and indeed the entire Africa.

By Zik Gbemre With news that Bishop Diamond Emuorbo has passed on to eternal glory, I must say that we have lost a great gem, who was an exceptional patriotic Urhobo man.

OPINION: URGENT NEED TO CHANGE THE UNHEALTHY NEGATIVE NARRATIVE SET OUT BY OLDER GENERATION FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE

BY ZIK GBEMRE It breaks my heart, to see that all the values, uprightness and morality, that once held and made our society relatively stable, noble and productive, seem to have been eroded from one generation to another. So much so that some of us, as the older generation in this 21st century, are now wondering ...

MORE THOUGHTS ON THE OBNOXIOUS AND HASTY SUPREME COURT JUDGMENT ON THE BAYELSA STATE GUBER ELECTION

By Zik Gbemre I still cannot help but wonder and ask if the Nigerian Supreme Court Judges actually keep records and research on their past judgments on election matters and high-profile corruption matters in this country, as precedence, before delivering current judgements?
