It was the late Kwame Nkrumah who admonished his fellow Ghanaians to “seek ye first the political kingdom, and all things shall be added to you”. When Nkrumah made that statement during the struggle for Ghana’s independence, he meant that political independence would be a prerequisite for other improvements and development.


The Abia Charter of Equity as it affects Abia South Senatorial Zone, peopled by a good half of the Ukwa na Ngwa is a much talked about issue. Since the Governor, His Excellency Chief T. A. Orji took a positive stance on the issue, drumming it up like a religious matter, many who lost their voices in the heat of challenges, have completely regained and are now expounding and exhorting.

Last year, 2014, Nigeria commemorated its 100 years of existence. It was an epochal event as well as a milestone in the chequered history of Nigeria. Since 1914, our variant of democracy, which was truncated and interrupted by military coups severally, has kept on evolving. In 1960, when Nigeria became a sovereign nation, we’re practising parliamentary system of government.

I will like to start this disinterested intervention in the media feud between Professor Chukwuma Soludo, former Governor of the Central Bank and Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, with a full disclosure:
I struggled within myself whether I should really write this article or simply call Soludo and give him my piece of mind on his exchanges with Dr Okonjo-Iweala. The conflict was on whether, as a public intellectual, I should dabble into the debate and say my mind or bypass it out of loyalty to a friend.

The truth is that every great people must first lose their direction several times before finally finding the right direction. That’s how every fallen great nation can rise to greatness. And now that Nigeria has fallen to the bottom pit, isn’t it time it began the inevitable rise? The same hands nature used to force Nigeria down the bottom pit, it will soon be used in guiding us to a quick rise.

Many concerned compatriots have, rightly, decried the high level of hate speeches and messages contained in the current electioneering campaigns which have done much to poison the atmosphere and giving rise to the high level of tension in the polity.
The media have also been carpeted as complicit enablers of the politicians in this dangerous game that is threatening to tear the nation apart. The desire by many Nigerians to leave their current places of aboard outside their homelands and escape to the presumed safety and security of their villages is the direct result of the palpable sense of violence in the air.
