If any one is in doubt about the sincerity of the Federal Government of Nigeria to address the protracted crises in the Niger Delta region of the country, recent measures by the government point clearly to that direction. In what he said was a measure aimed at achieving the “prompt execution of his programme for the area”, President Umaru Yar’Adua, recently created the Ministry of the Niger Delta.

The thinking of the President, reflected in his widely reported remarks to the visiting… Continue

Posted on November 7, 2007 at 5:13am 0 Comments

Thank you for inviting me. I read through your article and think it is a mind opener not to anyone but to our individual selves in Africa. What can we Africans do? Where do we start? We will definitely need friends and others to share in our struggle but the struggle must begin with us. The Problem of Africa is Africa. We need a new mind set in Africa. I believe strongly that change and development is achievable in Africa just like peace and nonviolence is achievable on earth. All we need is united Action. God Bless. My E-mail:, website
