positive contributions to Ndigbo that should be saddled with the
responsibility of representing Ndigbo.

under Public Private Partnership, PPP arrangement that is going
to place almost about 70 per cent of the construction of the bridge on

On Boko Haram insurgency, NUF called on the Northern Elders
Forum to sit up and stop playing blame game.

great men like Aminu Kano, Ahmadu Bello, Tafa Balewa, Shehu
Shagari and others, will allow visionless people to be in charge of
their affairs,” it said.
On the nomination of Abia State governor, Theodore Orji, as
chairman of South East Governor’s Forum, the group urged Orji
and other governors in the region to live up to their responsibility and
