The on-going battle of wits between Gov. Hope Uzodimma and members of the Imo State House of Assembly may lead to the sad ouster of the Governor if nothing urgent was done – a cleric has revealed. Speaking to Nigerian Newsguide weekend, General Overseer, City Power of God Church Aba, Rev Linus Nwagelezi said Imo State Governor, Sen Hope Uzodimma was known to be a political master –strategist and smooth operator for several years to the extent that he was in the Senate for eight years but has suddenly become a learner since he emerged governor early this year.Rev.

IMO PDP: AN OPPOSITION IN THE DARK WALK TO OBLIVION

Fact Channel, Politics
©Nwokedi Stanford Arinze.(S.S.A Public Enlightenment)The last time out there in their desperate search for power, they had "sorrowfully" rendered apologies for their misuse of public trust in leadership. They believed that the people were shallow in the understanding of their politics of theatrics and gimmicks. They feigned repentance and thought the people would forget their monumental looting that impoverished them. Yes, as a prodigal political party; one without the least of credibility, they thought, and how wrong they were, that the people were victims of selective amnesia. Imolites? No way!In just a stint in power, having stolen the political mandate here in IMO for less than 8 months, they reinvented themselves in duplicity, open rape of IMO treasury and a bitter aftertaste...

Politics
By Ogu Bundu Nwadike, M.ALest we forget, Uzodimma is making a failed State out of the Imo State that he inherited intact from Governor Emeka Ihedioha!There's this parable of the loose cow, in which after the stubborn cow had defied all human hurdles, it still managed to escape from the stable. Africans say, "After the war, women and effeminate men begin the analytical narrative of the war. Hence, when the search team failed to recover the ebullient cow, some voices began hallucinating, saying if they were around at the time the cow escaped, it wouldn't have escaped!Then, one day again, another cow in the community got loose and was at the verge of escaping. Apparently recalling the excuses tendered by those who boasted that had they been around the other cow wouldn't have ...
Rising cost of food items in Imo and Rivers States

Rising cost of food items in Imo and Rivers States

News
The Igbo adage that says when an anomaly stays too long in place, it becomes a culture and norm of sort is to say the least the most appropriate comparison for the present situation of things in Imo and Rivers States, South East and South South, Nigeria. In these two states that share common boundary and speak almost one language, prizes of goods and commodity items have so skyrocketed even when the yuletide is yet to come.Food items are suddenly becoming an exclusive preserve for the rich and maybe the middle class, making life more miserable and somewhat hellish for the poor and poorest of the poor.In Owerri and Portharcourt for instance, transport fare is not too high even when price of fuel was increased recently in Nigeria, yet there is this well coordinated and no-end in-sight h...
