Editorial
A time has come in our dear nation when men and women holding Public offices must start renting a soul.

Wike, the denial of his Igbo origin and conscious destruction of lives in Obigbo

News
From time immemorial, peoples' lives and events have proven to be full of deceits, idiocy and stupidity to the extent that many go as far as denying their parents, status, religion or family lineage in order to get money or whatever that brings happiness instead of joy. Esau was the first to deny his status as the first son and heir apparent to his father Isaac over a plate of porridge yam from his kid brother Jacob. Till date, that carefree attitude and conscious mistake remained a curse to Esau and his lineage.
