By Phil Tam-Al Alalibo | NNP | August 10, 2013 – I am not in any way attempting to hold brief for the Igbos as they are more than capable of doing so for themselves.  However, I wish to make a few comments about the unsavory article written by Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, titled “The Bitter Truth […]

The Bitter Truth About the Igbos – By Femi Fani-Kayode

By Femi Fani-Kayode | NNP | August 8, 2013 – Permit me to make my second and final contribution to the raging debate about Lagos, who owns it and the seemingly endless tensions that exist between the Igbo and the Yoruba. It is amazing how one or two of the numerous nationalities that make up […]

Can Barack Obama Be Trusted? – By Femi Fani-Kayode

By Fani Femi-Kayode | NNP | Nov. 13, 2012 – The American Presidential election will take place in a few days time and frankly some questions still need to be answered.

”Nigeria is Just a Toilet of a Country Where Evil Reigns”- Lord Apsley – Femi Fani-Kayode

By Femi Fani-Kayode | NNP | October 2, 2012 – Lord Apsley and I were colleagues at Harrow School in England approximately 36 years ago.

Chief E.K Clark and His Moral Icon – By Femi Fani-Kayode

A glaring example of this […]

Excerpts from IBB’s article “…I can go back to fight a war to keep this country together even at 71…..some people are saying that “should anything happen to President Jonathan, forget about Nigeria” and so on.
