By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | NNP | February 28, 2018 -Many adults can remember the ‘class idiot’ in their primary and secondary school days.

Buhari’s New Year Speech and Sagay’s Outbursts – By Dr. Jideofor Adibe

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe  |  Nasarawa, Nigeria | January 20, 2018 –  I was reasonably impressed with the overall tenor of President Buhari’s 2018 New Year’s message.

By Dr. Jideofor Adibe | Nasarawa, Nigeria | Nov. 28, 2017 – In my column of September 7 2017 entitled, ‘Nnamdi Kanu and the Redeemer Complex’, I made a few propositions about Nnamdi Kanu that now seem prophetic.
